I'm moving house tomorrow so blatantly something will go wrong with internet connections/I'll be mental and blogging won't be my priority for a couple of days (how unprofessional I know...!) so figured I'd post something you can actually 'buy now' to give you shopping ideas for the bank holiday weekend...
It's Chanel. It's only £21.
It's the most perfect shade of lipstick I've ever seen.
It's the new Rouge Coco range in 'Mademoiselle'.
I'm a red lippy girl (on occasion) but I never feel like I get the shade quite right if I'm completely honest. It's always feels to bright, a little to much and dare I say it slightly try hard. But this is perfection. A subtler, somehow more classy, vintage red.
And obviously when I wear it I'll look exactly the same as Vanessa Paradis in the new ad.

I'm not a fan of 'traditional red-carpet jewellery'.
Don't get me wrong I'd never actually say NO to diamonds... but sometimes they can look a bit grown up on younger celebs...
That's why I heart Jaime Winstone's skeleton necklace SO much. She wore it to the Empire Film Awards in London earlier this week and it looks COOL. It's still glamorous and cocktail enough (and expensive - £2145, from NOA Fine Jewellery - www.noafinejewellery.com) but just suits her whole look and attitude. Nice one Jaime.

Last week I was working with a lovely model called Laura who was wearing THE most fabulous leggings.
Total flower power from H&M's garden collection.
Fair enough not everyone could get away with them but she was rocking the look so just had to take a snap and show you...

This week I've been feeling like I REALLY need some new season, amazing, statement shoes. I want a peep-toe, wedge, shoe-boot style that I keep seeing in every mag and on the coolest Fashion Editors at all the events over the last couple of weeks... still living in my chunky winter lace-up boots I've felt distinctly last season... urgh.
My numero uno's are American Retro's denim lace-up's, £221, available at Urban Outfitters. SO cool. I'm going to buy and start wearing immediately. And might get some cute pastel or lace little socks to wear underneath until the sun actually arrives... yay. Back in the fashion game.

I've always loved Milly's clothes. They're bold and bright, REALLY feminine, and there's always something so chic about them...
And now there's a jewellery range to. Which is EXACTLY the same. Beautiful, statement, sophisticated pieces. The type of thing you see on someone and just know they have taste/style/money! (But it's not actually to expensive - £70 - £270.) My favourites are the bright cuffs. LOVE.

After visiting the last LFW (London Fashion Week) I saw an amazing little collection by Lu Flux, took some snaps and tried to pop them on here but I really stupidly had my camera on a rubbish setting so they came out blurry... but now I've been sent the lookbook (Autumn/Winter 10/11) I can show you pics, woohoo!
Such a cute home-made-y feel but incredibly beautiful collection.
Love the cute little skirts with a plain American Apparel tee for a day look... but the full-on frill dresses are incredible. Massively ♡.
Check out www.luflux.com - the S/S collection is FAB to. x

THE sexiest experimental lingerie/bodywear out there. Little bit Lady GaGa, massively sexy but SO sophisticated, beautiful and cool.
LOVE the staple - the Angela girdle dress - I used it on a music video shoot this week and it's actually the hottest thing ever. For a more 'wearable' look I'm in love with the Angela Tank dress. Body-con like you've never seen before...

This blog is all about FASHION, but this chair is SO inspirational and fabulous I just had to show you all. Plus I'm in the middle of moving so am starting to think 'interiors'...
This is one of the chairs used to furnish Maison Moschino - the new Moschino Hotel in Milan... Moschino have come up with several interpretations of the classic Phillippe Stark for Kartell 'Mademoiselle' chair... 'The Bow' is one, then 'Wallpaper' is covered in gold brocade fabric.
Both can be ordered at the Maison Moschino Boutique... what better excuse for a little Italian break!?

I've been on the hunt for the perfect stripy top for AGES. They're either to tight, wrong neckline, to thin/wide stripes, cheap fabric.... blah blah blah
But my search is OVER.
La Redoute's bretton stripe top is PERFECTION in a stripy tee. Cool, casual, bit boyish fit, good sleeve length, great neck. Getting the picture!?
I've had mine on for 4 out of the last 6 days! Yeah. (I washed it inbetween btw....).
And did I mention its only £13?!

One of the amazingly cool new transfer tattoos which last for approx 4 days - maybe more, maybe less. I ♥ the pearl charm bracelet they gave me on the Chanel counter at Selfridges today and now I'm going to pile on some more - a chain ring and layered chains and leather look straps around the other wrist...
Instant coolness with no worries about them getting wrinkly when you're old. Yay.
Available in Chanel Boutiques and (London) Selfridges for £49 (set of 55 tats...).

Loving all the LWD action in the shops right now.
It's literally snow's stopped. It's summer. Trend: White.
I completely ADORE Religion's broderie anglaise dress - instore now and on www.net-a-porter.com from 15th March - it's just so wearable. Love how it's styled by Religion in the lookbook (see pic), and Amber Le Bon (see other pic) wore it with a black ribbon belt at Fashion For Relief. Right now I'd wear with black tights and chunky boots, and maybe a visible sock over the tight...

I can't believe it's actually NOT raining/snowing/sleeting/freezing...
Which means... time to start going to the gym in preparation for 'summer style'. Short shorts, teeny dresses, gladiators, midriff tops (yeah might give that one a miss, but great on models!) here we come.
Love this little outfit from Giles Deacon's 10th 'Gold' collection for New Look - instore March 22nd... but might wear the top with something denim instead, and a pair of French Sole gladiator sandals which I'm going CRAZY for... tbd (to be discussed)...☀
