OK, I actually need to sit down and breath after finding this new story out. Are you ready for this? Topshop have collaborated with their funky fashionable fashion friends and have given the public a chance to stroll into the Oxford Circus store to actually hire out an amazing dress from your favourite celebrity for your Christmas parties! I know you maybe thing "god this is gonna cost £££'s"... But not really! Because its only £40 a day!

Thats just a small list of fashion freaks who are taking part, there's a lot more of them! Fittings start from today (26th Nov) until 6th December, then from 7th Dec until 23th Dec wannabe renters can have any of the dresses! I still cannot believe this. I feel like Xmas has come all at once!

So Kookai have opened their new store in cute little Marylebone Village. Situated just off busy Oxford Street in St. Christophers Place I went along to their press day which was actually loads of fun!

Kookai have moved away from their tiresome old image after appointing luxury boutique PR firm DeVetta PR. Kookai's client base is very easy to tell by their collection, they are trying to reach out to a strong, independent, free-thinking woman by attracting her with strong fabrics, fine detailing and their "industrial chic" style boutiques. Kookai have gone very Parisian chic with their new collection which I found quite classy but fun at the same time. Firstly, we saw a lot of golden embellishments...

Boyfriend blazers with smart shorts...

Tribal inspired jewellery...
And what a surprise... The English Trench!


Disneyrollergirl featured the Oasis preview on her blog which instantly caught my eye. The blogosphere has gone crazy over these new pieces designed by recent graduate Rosalind Keep. The price point is around £35-£40 which is a real high street bargain and I have to say this white tee below is totally going to be snapped up by me when it's released! The release date is said to be in December, so what a perfect xmas present...


I was truly blown away by Mcqueen's SS10 collection when I was watching the video. It made me wish I was there. Could this be the future of fashion? As I was watching it from the start, it made me think about how far we have come with the fashion industry from the days of Coco Chanel and Christian Dior.

Designers in our generation are not only pioneering but so unbelievably mental it makes me wee a little! I totally j'adore it! Alexander McQueen's show was something that I am sure a lot of designers watched and thought "oh god, how am I meant to top that this season?" Everything from the big industrial machines with the camera's, the psychedelic feel you get when you glance into Mcqueen's pieces and the edgy platforms that make women look so 2050! Love it.

Style Icon: Carine Roitfeld

Born to a Russian father and French mother, Carine Roitfeld had style flowing through her veins since the day she was born. Her presence on the front row of every major catwalk show in New York, London, Milan & Paris is without a doubt something that could never be forgotten. Her impressive CV includes French Elle, consultant and muse for Tom Ford at Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent for six years. Dubbed as "Anna Wintour's biggest competition" this style icon can certainly put together a look more flattering than Wintour herself!... (Yes, I said it). As much as I love Anna Wintour, there is something that always lacks in Vogue US.

However, when you open up Vogue Paris, it's a magical moment, every page is a story, every image makes you fall in to a land of make believe and fairy tales. Every page IS fashion.

Sea of... Dresses

Meet fashion blogger Sea of Shoes. Hailing from America, I think this girl knows how to Werq it! I'm absolutely loving this dress she bought from Ebay, styled brilliantly with Givenchy wedges. I personally think its a totally hot look and the dress is just utterly beautiful, loving the colour, texture and print!

Vivienne Westwood Red Label

There I was, sat along side I Want You To Know at Vivienne Westood's Red Label S/S10 show during LFW in September. I was ready to go with excitement pumping through my body, I just wanted the show to start. As much as I loved Viv's show as a whole, one thing kept bugging me whilst I sat through watching it- The constant celebrities being slapped in my face.

Don't get me wrong, I j'adore celeb culture and I feel like it is now a huge part in everyone's lives. Celeb's sell just like sex sells, but one main culprit in this show that had me scratching my head was Lisa from Big Brother 10. I don't understand her presence and to a certain extent made the whole show look and feel tacky.

The whole night in general felt like a Z list celebrity cocktail; It was just wrong. Famous faces from Marvin Humes right through to Boy George sat front row and even to this day I still have no clue why? I would love to know some of your views on this?

The Little Black Dress

Coco Chanel introduced in 1926, since then 'little black dress' has been the epitome of timeless fashion. US Vogue's creative director Grace Coddington could not be seen without one in 'The September Issue', and it represents all things simple, glamorous yet sexy.

Even though a little black dress may seem boring to some, it still is one of the most must-have items in every woman's closet. Something that will always be in style is a knee-length (right above, or below) sleeveless sheath. The best thing about black dress is that you always have room to accessorise it, either with a bag, statement sparkly earnings or even killer heels.

I feel that a statement black dress is slowly being forgotten about and I would love to see more of them on the catwalks and out on the streets.

US Harpers Bazaar

I think she is beautiful.

That's All.


Ever wandered how the Hermes Birkin is made? I found this video which I have to say was extremely educational. Watch this especially if you think a bag is just a bag ... "It's not just a bag, its a Birkin."

Lego Catwalk

Fashion has always been about being playful, inspirational and pushing the boundaries, but the JCDC Lego collection has broken every style boundary there ever existed and invented some really cool wearable and catwalk pieces.

Here we see the revival of the 80's. The colour, the texture, the fittings are all uber cool and it wouldn't shock me to think people will be bring colour back into their wardrobes after watching this even when colour doesn't really exist this season!

But style is about individualism right? So go buy yourselves a lego kit and start creating!
