The wonderful world of fashion...

Hello everyone,

So I have been running around college all week and boy am I tired, I also saw Bruno Mars with his Moonshine Jungle Tour this week and am busy all weekend. On Monday it will be hard to wake up. 

But today I am awake watching the qualifying of the Japanese GP and have been flicking through the recent fashion shows for next season. It is hard watching Spring/Summer as the long winter creeps into the UK. 

  • Firstly, it was announced that Marc Jacobs is leaving Louis Vuitton and so the fashion show this season was tinged with sadness, he still put on a fabulous show, only increasing the punk trend.
  • Secondly, as always I loved Chanel I didn't think they could actually make me love them more! But that show, wow, the colour palette, the jacket styles and some of the handbags!
  • Thirdly, Dolce & Gabbana. I love them. The shows are always so beautiful and flower patterns sway me, not to mention the gold encrusted dresses. Wow.
  • Then Burberry Prorsum used my favourite dusty pink colour in some of their outfits, I do hope this colour stays as I love pink!
  • Finally, I can't leave my fashion week review without Oscar de la Renta. I am amazed, not only did they show the most sophisticated approach to patterns with a plain white underneath black and blue prints, but they also created a light yellow dress that I just adored.
  • One side observation, some designers went for the naked look a bit too much for my liking, I can't really imagine even the most devoted followers of fashion walking around with no bra through a sheer shirt. 

So that is my review so far, if anything has caught your eye that I've missed then let me know,

Luv as always,

Fashion Update!

Hello everyone,

I've been a bit silent recently and I can only apologise but my final year of college is really starting with a mad rush, although I am surviving. Oh and I've been suffering with my seasonal cold :(  

So this is my list of autumnal faves now I think all the summer weather has gone :(

  1. Boots! Give a girl the right pair and Marilyn you were right, she can conquer the world! This season boots are the staple, mine are a roughed up biker style, as I still love militarian for A/W and also they toughen up any girly look which makes the style your own. But there is something to be said for the more elegant boot. 
  2. Jumpers! The weather is changeable and it's always good to keep warm (or you'll just be freezing). I just bought a blue one from Debenhams and it's beautiful! I cannot wait to wear it with my jeans and new black pumps! 
  3. Lush, wonderful Lush! I bought four things this time. First, the new Rose Jam shower gel which smells like crushed rose petals, I love it! Second and third are two bath ballistics one called Twilight and one called Lord of Misrule (Halloween limited edition) they both smell heavenly! And finally the ever present Sunnyside, although with a new shine in the form of lustre and not glitter! (Yay for us glitter-phobs!).
  4. My jeans! Yes I've worn them all year but when it gets to winter they just go with everything and are really comfy! I love them! My favourite pair are from Mantaray at Debenhams! 
  5. Sparkly eyeshadow! Ok it's technically not clothes but you do WEAR make up lol! Anyway I love sparkly eyeshadow and am currently wearing my sparkly gold Bobbi Brown one in shade Moonstone! It stays on FOREVER (well until you take it off) but I recommend it highly! 
  6. The Holiday and Love Actually! My winter movie bug is kicking in hehe! I will also watch The Seven Year Itch when I get in I can't wait! 
  7. Finally, Strictly Come Dancing! For me and my mum (Hi mum!) SCD is a staple show during A/W! We always watch all the dresses but we have our favourite celebs that we cheer on. At the end of the season I will do a review of all the best dresses and pairings but for now it's too early to tell! 
So that's my (awkwardly) top 7 faves at the moment. 

Speak to you all soon, comment below, on the Facebook page or tweet me to say hi if you want!
