Nude leather

Hello, beautiful soft buttery nude leather jacket.

I had to show you this by Simone, £950 from Oxygen Boutique because it'd bloody beautiful. I used it in a shoot last week and it was definitely the most lusted after item. Wear it with head to toe neutrals or over a bright block colour.

New Prada Womens campaign

Okay so I posted the new Winter Prada mens campaign a few days ago so I thought it only fair I show you the womens version. I love it. Even more than the mens one. How beautiful are the colours? Pictures by Steven Meisel. I LOVE LOVE LOVE.

I'm in love with a bag

I had to show off my new bag of joy! The Christopher Kane laser-cut leather clutch in neon orange which has made me a very happy girl today. I it forever and will probably use it at every occasion I'm attending this year. So those who know me will prob be seeing a lot of it. Soz.

Versace + H&M

One word. Amazingness.

The Versace/H&M collection will be for A/W11 be available from (and probably only on) 17th November online and instore (I SO hope I get something this time - I re-freshed my laptop about a million times from 6am to try and buy one of the Lanvin dresses and still couldn't get anything!). This collection is guaranteed to be amazing - it's being designed by Donatella herself - how glam does she look in this vid all about the new collaboration...

Tobey Maguire new face of Prada

When I first heard that Tobey Maguire was the star of Prada's menswear campaign for A/W11-12 I though RANDOM. Then I looked at pics and thought HOT, COOL, LIKE IT.

I just think of him as playing a slightly crap Spiderman... But next year he's going to be in Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsy which is definitely going to be amazing; and will probably turn him into a full on grown up sex symbol. And these pics will definitely help. Photographed by David Sims in NY, I love the cinematic, dark, slightly sinister, sexy but intellectual feel. He looks a bit like a sexy 70s librarian James Bond no?

OMFG Toni Terry

What WAS she thinking? Winner of the most hideous swimwear of the year award... and HOW SET UP ARE THESE PICS. Shocking.


Allow me to introduce you to the new Limited Edition Prada croc bags...
Only available at Harrods and price on request (which means massively expensive, but hey a girl can dream) these two beauties are available in a limited palette, lined in nappa leather and come with an adorable detachable mini clutch. Each bag features a metal code number - so they really are properly limited.
Get your name down now if you want - they'll be instore from the end of June.

And if anyone wants ideas for engagement presents... I'm sure my fiancé would love them too!

Okay, I'm convinced. Here's the rock!

I'm engaged!

Sorry for the lackage of posts over the last few days but I'm now ENGAGED. Argh. I'm actually going to get married (squealing). And be a bride (more squealing). So I haven't really had time to do anything apart from talk about that for the last few days.

My ring is AMAZING. And I thought about posting a pic of it on here and then thought is that weird?! Maybe I will soon... not sure about the etiquette of posting a pic of your engagement ring on your blog?

I also promise that I will not turn my blog into a one of a wedding obsessed bride-zilla. I'll hopefully write about that elsewhere... It will remain primarily a fashion blog. I might do the odd bridal related post but only if something is exceptionally cool and I think you'll be interested even if you don't have wedding bells ringing in your ears...

Just give me one more day to calm myself down (and stare at my ring! Ahhhh) and I'll be back to normal! x

Surely Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has to be the hottest lady on the planet by now... she's knocking out those covers...

The perfect plimsoll

I've just got back from a little shopping mission - to find the perfect white sneaker.
I haven't owned a pair of sneakers for ages. I threw my last pair of Converse out well over a year ago and I haven't massively missed them, until now.
I think it was the Alexa Chung Superga ads that did it. I love them. How cute does Alexa look in the pic - although note she isn't actually wearing them...

Anyway I headed to Schuh - the best place for a mission of this nature - and tried Converse which I'm just not that into anymore. I have no explanation as to why, it just wasn't working. Then I tried Superga, the new fashion people fave but I can't get over the high rubber sole. P.E. I like them on other people. Mainly on Alexa. And still might be tempted when the pale pink ones come instore. Then I tried Keds and they're just a bit nothing really aren't they - made my feet look a bit too childlike.

So I tried Vans. I'm totally not a Vans girl but these babies (above) are the perfect plimsoll. Simple, not to bright white, discreet brand name and just really cool and cute in the right way. And £35.

So I officially crown them The Perfect Plimsoll. Congrats Vans.
