Vogue Paris Feb 2010, Vogue-รก-Porter
Only the ridiculously incredible Carine Roitfeld could make the whole world pause and swoon at head scarves...Ok so maybe only those lost in all this fashion smoke but oh my Roitfeld has me under a spell! This editorial is flawless and I am determined to wear a head scarf some time soon and not look like a granny... Dree does make it look tres facille!  Swooon x

Topshop sunnies and platforms

Sorry for the recent hiatus! Hopefully this dose of style inspiration and a sneaky glimpse of our most treasured fashion finds will make it up to you! Of course we had to feature the ultimate magazine Plastique...no other glossy compares. As much as we love it though it is crazy hard to get hold of!!! We searched high and low across all the major fashion haunts in London for the latest issue and had zero luck...Plastique where are you in my life. If anyone knows please share the love!

I cannot wait for the model mania of fashion week! It is always crazy before and after the shows seeing the models dashing about trying to find their phones/drivers/lighters! Amazing.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Laptop Case
Designers have been going hi-tech lately and it seems men aren't the only ones interested in computer gadgets. Ever since Mulberry brought out their beautiful Mac covers (I had my eye on the fuchsia leopard one) I have been on the look out for a more affordable version. Then I found this Marc by Marc Jacobs case which was a very reasonable £50, what a bargain! So now my laptop can travel in style and when I'm not carrying my laptop I use it to carry my papers and magazines around. Perfecto!

Another dose of model inspiration! The first image is classic mesmerizing Stam but the last one is my favourite, the black bob and glossy face make you want to keep looking, it is so intriguing and shows how powerful she is as a model. I'm also loving the Lady Gaga look with those incredible sunglasses and the soft brown haired image with that wonderful hat, I need to get one of those! I actually think I prefer her dark haired...what do you think blonde or brown?
Celia Birtwell Top, Topshop Denim Shorts, Vivienne Westwood Bracelet, Topshop Wedge Boots
Ok so I'm a bit of a jewellery addict. Jewellery makes an outfit personal, it can also make an outfit look more expensive... I certainly can't afford the Vivienne Westwood jacket or Alexander Wang jumper but jewellery on the other hand I can stretch to! This Viv bracelet is a classic, very pretty in pearls which isn't always my look but I'm certain it will never date and I can't get enough of that orb!

At the last London Fashion Week we were lucky enough to run into countless models running from show to show and these were our favourite encounters. Natalia, Lily and Freja left me speechless so we thought it only fair to share our fabulous up close and personal photos. I hope we are as lucky in Feb, I am already counting down the days for the Fashion Weeks to begin!

Alexander Wang SS10 Ad Campaign

The SS10 Ad Campaigns have been coming through thick and fast much to our delight. One of the most anticipated was of course Mr Alexander Wang, with his army of followers staying strong after his perfect SS10 collection, the campaign could only be gold. The laid back sports wear, the cut out detailing, the animal print highlights, fluffly plaits cascading to the side...oh Wang you know what makes us giddy! Joggers teamed with heels popped up on a few of the runways and I can not wait to experiment.
I love that Hanne Gaby Odiele is in this campaign, she was on countless runways and yet not in many editorials or campaigns. Her look is unusual but I find it refreshing. (And FYI she was the funniest/friendliest model we met at LFW! Go her!)

Oh Lily where to begin. I have always been a fan of Lily Donaldson, she's an english rose so hey maybe I'm biased. But no matter who is the 'face of the moment'  I always come back to her classic beauty. The above images are truly inspiring and don't even get me started on her off-duty model style! I hope you guys agree.
Who else is seeing the remarkable Kate Moss resemblance in the last image? Stunning!
