29.01.2011- tba SS11

I've posted before about my love for tba's designs, and, when I saw these images from their SS11 lookbook, I just had to share:
Not only are all the individual pieces from this collection beautiful (I especially love the Sam Tunic in the fourth picture), but the way each look has been styled…

26.01.2011- Swan Song

In the unlikely event that Black Swan mania has passed you by (alas, a suddenly busy week has stopped me from seeing it yet), this beautiful editorial from Vogue Russia more than confirms that ballet is certainly having something of a fashion moment:

Although the Black Swan references are perhaps a …

25.01.2011- Versatile Blogger Award!

The lovely Laura, from Emerald Green 88 has passed on a Versatile Blogger Award to me, thanks Laura!


Apart from swimming certificates and a really lame prize (and by 'prize' I mean plastic trophy) which I won at school for doing well in my GCSE's, this is the first proper award I've…

20.01.2011- Rokit Designers Guild

I've written before about my absolute adoration for all things Rokit, and this month they are launching a really exciting project which, as well as nurturing new talent, pays tribute to the lasting appeal of vintage and classic design techniques. Rokit Designers Guild is an initiative establish…

18.01.2011- Don't leave me hangin' on the telephone

When I saw Jessica Stam on the cover of the February edition of W Korea, as photographed by Catherine Servel, I was instantly reminded of Debbie Harry...

...with the platinum blonde hair, pale skin and smokey eyes, it's not hard to see where the inspiration for this cover shoot comes from. And, …

17.01.2011- Starry Starry Night

On a rather gloomy Monday morning, here's some red carpet glamour from last night's Golden Globe Awards (aka an excuse for me to post about my favourite dresses!)
 Natalie Portman, winner of the Best Actress award for Black Swan, wearing a gorgeous blush pink gown by Viktor and Rolf. 
 Claire…

16.01.2011- You should be dancing....yeah?

The impending release of Black Swan, which opens in the UK on Friday, and centres upon a production of Swan Lake, has got me thinking about other films which feature iconic dance sequences. I can't wait to see the ballet scenes from Black Swan, especially after reading about the rigorous traini…

13.01.2011- Butterfly, flutterby

As well as starring in Mulberry's latest campaign, Lindsey Wixson is also the face of Alexander McQueen's SS11 advertising:

I thought these pictures were simply too stunning not to share and I adored Sarah Burton's designs for spring/summer when they were debuted at Paris fashion week. …

13.01.2011- C is for Cookie!

Last week I tried a new recipe from my lovely Hummingbird Bakery book, this time for double chocolate cookies. Whilst January usually ushers a period of resolution to get healthy/go to the gym more/eat less rubbish, my logic is that it's futile to even attempt this all the time the seemingly ne…

08.01.2011- Mulberry's Secret Garden

When I saw Mulberry's SS11 collection from New York Fashion Week, I adored it. The feminine, flowery pieces really stood out, as did the pastel colour palette. This week, we got to see more of the collection as Mulberry unveiled the accompanying ad campaign, shot by Tim Walker, starring Lindsey…

05.01.2011- 'Do I really need another pair of shoes?'

I wrote this piece back in August for a competition ELLE magazine was running, and didn't post it here straightaway for fear I might jinx my chances of winning (and because I'm always massively nervous of sharing anything I've written 'proper'). Of course the closing date for th…
