So I've been woefully bad at keeping up my blog recently ... blame the london life! But NYFW is now in full swing and some of the collections are too compelling not to write about. So here goes!

First off I'm so glad that colour is still on the runways, after the seemingly uncensored colour stories of the summer collections this year, which I LOVED, I thought designers might retreat back into muted colour palettes to compensate for their extravagance.  Thankfully this is not the case colours sit happily next to blacks and beiges to keep them relevant for the winter.

Heavier fabrics like velvets and knits are used to off set the jewel colour notes in the Carlos Miele A/W collection, along with the anticipated return of fur on the runways.

I think this look is my favourite it just sits perfectly for me. 

I know it's a controversial issue but I will admit I'm a bit of a fur fanatic. It can turn any boring outfit into something that feels luxurious and special, which for me is the mark of a great piece of clothing, but you've got to sleep at night so vintage furs are the way to go for the ethically minded!!

Dennis Basso Is evidently a fur fanatic too, lots and lots of it in his collection...

Monique Lhuiller embraced intricate lace work, prints and metallic fabrics in her collection to create a striking yet feminine look.

 Just a snippet of whats happening I will bring you lots more!!!

So much has happened, moved to london, check, started new job at BCBG, check, brought LOVE magazine, check.

This magazine is more of a twice yearly fashion book and their 6th edition for A/W 2001 is no different. The Fashion editoral by Mert Marcus is a beautifully disturbing and macabre piece of art.

If you can get your hands on it, you have to get it. Also check out their website.

Took advantage of the sunshine this weekend and enjoyed some pimms with a friend at my house and the cornfield at the end of my garden drew us in and we felt we just had to take some snaps! 


 I'm wearing a knitted dress and shoes from zara, Floppy hat from monsoon.

I mentioned the label LOVER before. This dress has never looked better!!


Perfumes a very personal thing and I tend to stick to one when I've decided I like it , currently acqua di parma - magnolia nobile which is devine but eveningy. And until now I haven't had one that I like as much for the day. But tried this today and I've been wandering around smelling my wrist like a mad man, so think I've got to get it! x
