Finally hit the 5000th hit mark (Yayyy!!!!), kinda wish I had something new to show you guys, but unfortunately I don't.

But as a treat, here's 20% off at American Apparel:

Chanel Iman for H&M Magazine, Holiday 2009, by Terry Richardson.

I'm usally not really a fan of Miss Iman, but I can't help but love this shoot, especially the pearl necklace, I hope that's the real deal and not just some crafty styling.

What happens when you mix this:








with this:

.........


Well it looks a little something like this:
A little bit of the Jeffery Campbell Tick boots, meet the Topshop x Ashish Zebra wedges....

....Seen on the feet of The Harijuku Barbie herself, Nicki Minaj, on the set of a video shoo, which was a big surprise, I don't really think she does them much justice to be honest, but they're definitely very interesting.

I'm not sure if these are just a new, unreleased colourway of the JC Tick shoes, or if her stylist got a little stud happy and DIY'd these herself, but there's something in me that actually makes me really like them.



^^^I've had this song repeat for the past few days, who would have thought Nicki Minaj+ Dubsteep would end up like this (apparently this a demo for Rihanna, I could definitely imagine her on this )

I-I-I Go Hard.....

19 November, 2009

It's been quite a while since I've posted, and I have no excuse other than the fact that I have been extremely lazy, and haven't really felt as if I have much of worth to post, but hopefully that should change over the next couple of days.

But the past few weeks, Rihanna's face has been everywhere and for once her choice of clothes really caught my eye, (yes she dresses nice, but that's cause she has a stylist + a ridiculously large disposable income readily available to her +designers who would willingly give her free stuff) most of her outfits are crazy expensive, but kinda lack imagination, so I was pleasantly surprised to see her in clothes, that us poor people could actually afford. They're not as intriguing as her usual outfits, but it's interesting to see how well she's able to pull off more affordable/ "regular" pieces.



First off was the H&M Trend (peach label) jumper dress, I actually saw this in store and I didn't think much of it, but I liked the way she's paired it with the army boots and the fishbone necklace, not too sure about the LV bum bag though. The dress is still in store now, can't remember how it is, but I'm sure it's less then £40.




Another favourite was this cut out detailing LBD from Australian designers Funktional for £58 at Shop Nasty Gal (one of my favourite online stores, it's a mixture of Vintage items and Independent designers), it's another one of those cases, where a little a bit of detailing can make a huge difference to the everyday LBD. But something about the straps bother me, I've never been a fan of halter necks, but I guess it doesn't look too bad here.

Long & Short of it....

I think by now, we're all more than aware that chain harnesses are once again the new in thing in fact with ear cuffs, shoulder guards and even shoe chains, popping up all over Etsy and and the fashion blogs, it seems that body jewelry on a whole is set to have a huge comeback.

I've been loving all of them so far, but the thing that has really got interested has been Leg Cage, (yeah they sound about a weird) but they're one of the most innovative things I've seen in a while, although I'm still not entirely sure how you even get them to stay up, or how good they'll look on someone with the thicker legs, lol, but they can be made to fit, and would look over tights or leggings. So far, chainsoflove is the only person I've seen selling them, but I'm sure they'll soon be popping up in UO by the end of the year.




Love The Way My Ear-Rings

01 November, 2009


So after months & months of waiting I finally got my hands on these badboys, a couple of days a go, the King Tut earrings by Melody Ehsani (pictured above), and they were defiantly worth the wait, I've so many people have come up to me and asked where I've got them from, they are definately my favourite piece of jewelry ever, and it reminded me that I never actually got round to posting the finished product of the Fall 2009 Lookbook.

The collection contains loads of statement necklaces, over-the-top rings, and (my favourite) large, large earrings. Right now I would love to get my hands on any of the earrings and the gun chain ring, and the FUCK U necklace, just because I'm a sucker for anything with explatives. The new collection can be found at her site, whilst previous collections, including the King Tut Earrings can also be found on her site and at Karmaloop.com.












She's also releasing her second shoe collection at the beginining of next year which should be interesting, although I don't find her shoe collection as innovative as her jewelry it should be nice to see what she's got.

Alexa Chung for V Magazine shot by Sharif Hamza

Never been a fan of Alexa Chung, but you can't help but admit that when she keeps her mouth closed she's quite beautiful. But I have always been a fan of this lace Stella McCartney jumpsuit, and all of it's many variations. So this picture is a little bit of perfect.

(And in other news, I just got a new laptop which means I should be able to post more often again, all though Internet access is a bit dodgy at the moment)

Kinda OT.....

26 October, 2009

I know this isn't strictly fashion related, but how cool is this! It's called Snow White's Revenge, it's basically a re-working of this picture that popped up online a while ago, I, personally was not too keen on it a bit too childish for my liking, but I am in love with the reworked version, basically Banksy x Disney, complete with bandanna and driving gloves. this time instead of being tempted by the apple, she's stealing it...I like it, but then again I'm a fan of any vinyl's which incorporate the apple logo in it's design, just like this Magritte inspired piece. This is defiantly going to be the first purchase for my MacBook. You can get here at Etsy, and I think there may be a few on Ebay as well.

All Day I Dream About Shoes (Adidas x PPQ)

23 October, 2009



The first shots of the Adidas x PPQ collection has been released, they don't seem to have brought anything new to the table clothes wise, we've already seen most of them from the PPQ LFW show, as I said before all a bit blach. But they seem to have brought out some exciting new shoes, which look a bit more intresting, espically loving the cowprint loafers and the knee-high boots. I do hope this isn't the whole collection though because if it is,it's quite dissapointing, i love the overall looks and styling of the shoots, but I don't really think any of these peices have a wow! factor when they're on their own.

ASOS have just priced down their YSL Tribute Sandals "inspired" shoes to only £8! Not really a fan of them, but honestly, for £8 you could do a lot worse.

SLC We Love You!

It's that time of year again, Student Loan time!!! I know this isn't really where my money should be going, but I haven't gone shopping in months and months, so I went a bit mad in on ASOS and Colchester high street the other day. First thing was this beautiful work of art/monstrosity of a bag from River Island (looks much better in person) I really can't decide what I think of it, but I still can't help but fall a little bit in love with it.






Next off was ASOS, managed to do quite well there, got a few things that I've been waiting to go sale for ages (I hate buying things from ASOS for full price, it just feels wrong) including the denim shirt (£12, was hoping it would get down to under £10 but it's looking unlikely, and it's still better than paying £30+ for the one in the women's section), the white sleeveless shirt(kind of summery I know but I'm still glad I got it)reminds me of something Lauren Conrad would wear, and last but not least the tropical floral backless dress, I've been a fan with it ever since I saw it in the ASOS magazine, and fell in love with it once again when I saw VV Brown wearing it, but wasn't to sure how much wear I'd get out of it for £45, and then at £32, but at £18 there's no reason not to buy it.
And I finally got myself a knuckle-ish ring as well, this should hold me over until i get enough P's to get a Melody Ehsani one.



Also got my second favourite thing ever, this tweed oversized blazer from Miss Selfridges (looks kinda dodgy in this pic but it's the best thing ever, I love it) wanted this for agesssss, and it was on sale, so I'm very happy.

Also had my first proper go at vintage shopping in Colchester, can't remember the name of it, but I managed to get this really cool sequin blazer with XXL shoulders for £18



There were a few other stuff as well, but I don't really want to bait up my wardrobe online, lol.







U Ain't Shitt...

MTTB have just re-realised the "Boy's Ain't Shit..." tees at Karmaloop.com, their available in white ($30) and black($35, strange). I just ordered this along with the Dime Piece x Cassie tee, can't wait to get my hands on it, gonna be walking around campus with all sorts of expletives on my chest, lol.

Fingers cross they bring back the "my girls rock..." tees as well.

Boom, Boom, Shake Shake The Room!!!

Whilst the majority of the Christopher Kane/Topshop collaboration may have sold out almost everywhere, there are still some C. Kane inspired prints to be found on the highstreet, namely from H&M, this t-shirt dress has eerily similar ascetics to the nuclear, post-apocalyptic prints found on Mr Kane's resort 2010 collection.
I actually really like this, it's kind of a mix of the Resort 2010 collection, with the Topshop alligator t-shirt (minus the alligator), andhey've managed to make it much more wearable, which is always a plus.

Seeing that actually made me go back and re-asses the 2102 Resort collection, I wasn't particularly a fan of it at first, thought the colours were to muted and depressing, and weren't really that much different from his animal prints from the previous collection, but now I'm staring to fall in love with it, especially the biker jacket.
No idea when the tee's going to be out in stores, other than it's from their Autumn collection, but I'm guessing that if it isn't already out now, then it should be in stores soon.

I have no idea where this is from and who the model is, but I just love it. But if any one could ID this for me I’d be forever grateful.(I have a feeling this may be a white model in blackface....hmm, not too sure how I feel about this)
Sorry for thre lack of post again, back at uni with no laptop, and posting on the uni compters is very long at the moment because they don't seem to like blogger :-(

This definatley gives a new outlook to the "giving someone the cold shoulder",this is another 2BD creation, the shoulder detailing on this is nuts, studs, buttons, gems, spikes, everything and anything you could wish for, it's there. (sorry for the crappy pic quality, using paint at the moment.). Another example of the re-invention of the LBD, amazing what you can do with a lot of time and a little imagination.
I just hope that they make these into detachable shoulder pads, they would look great on a blazer or even a floral dress.
