Wild Cats!

This Autumn designers have gone wild with an array of animal print ensembles, namely leopard print among others. I must admit, at first I was sceptical as to how people would take to yet another fashion revival, or as I liked to call it at the time 'rehash'. However I am pleased to say I like what the designers have come up with! Much less 90's retro and more safari chic... Here are a few of my season favourites, designer and high street:

1. Carvela platforms - £110
2. Yves Saint Laurent scarf - £640
3. Christian Louboutin heels - £595
4. Miss Selfridge parka - £45
5. Christian Louboutin - £2,495
6. Jimmy Choo boots - £850
7. Topshop bag - £30
8. D & G print dress - £280

Warning: Don't wear all at once in order to avoid looking like a jungle junkie!

'Blake-ing' a Statement

Blake Lively was looking her usual uber-fashionable self, whilst on set filming for Gossip Girl season 4. Now even if you're not a fan of the show (but really, how could you not be?!) you have to admit that this outfit is totally 'relaxed-summer' chic:

The Knit Jumper I came across is from Debenhams, and at £10.20 is an absolute steal. I still haven't decided whether it is the exact one Blake is wearing, but either way it's lovely!

The jeans I found are from Topshop.. you can never go wrong with a pair trusty white skinny jeans.

Are you excited to see the return of Gossip Girl this summer?

Autumn Opinions

I realise I haven't posted properly in a while, for which I apologise! From now on I promise to return to writing my regular (and rather opinionated) blog posts.

Unfortunately I must start by making somewhat of a whiny point. But hey ho let's get the negatives out the way first... Well as you may or just as likely may not know, one of my fashion pet hates is the Kitten Heel! In my opinion these shoes are little more than flats making a laughable attempt at being, well, less flat. The essence of heeled shoes are to make us feel elegant and towering, and to make others think that our legs go on forever. Well that's hardly going to happen walking around in a pair of half inch kitten heels is it?!

So imagine my horror whilst flicking through key trends for Autumn, to find that these dastardly shoes are set to infiltrate shops once again! I say bring back power shoes, five inch towering heels, none of this modest woman rubbish! Runway fashion (I.M.O.) isn't supposed to be wearable or practical, instead something that is different and creates a spectacle. That's the joy of runway!

To conclude my point, incase you hadn't already guessed, the kitten heel is definitely a fashion revival I won't be participating in.

On a lighter note, one trend I am completely on-board for Autumn is the great outdoors/countryside fashion theme. Hiking boots (heeled of course!), parkas, shearling jackets, tweed, chunky knit etc. are all staple pieces this season. Wrapping up warm has never been so stylish!

DKNY AW10/11

Also, I'd like to share with you my shoe crush of the week. These are a gorgeous pair of lace boots from Topshop boutique. The detailing is just incredible, and the colour is very pretty and feminine.
