Summer Outfit Number 1

So here's an outfit I'd like to put together if I could afford it:

All Saints Bikini

Topman Cotton Shirt

Topshop Shorts
Topshop Necklace
Topshop NecklaceGap Belt

Accessorize BeltAccessorize Cuff
Accessorize Bangles

Office Wedges

If I could get my hands on an outfit like this, I would wear the bikini top under the shirt, with the shirt unbottoned except for a middle button, sleeves rolled up and one side tucked loosely into the waistband of the shorts . I would also wear both the belts layered loosely over each other, the cuff on one arm and a couple of sets of the bangles on the other arm. I would wear both necklaces together, but I especially like the leaf one - it's very pocahontas-y and practically personifies the look I am going for this summer.

Kate Moss for Topshop

Oh my God, I am totally lusting after these dresses from Kate Moss for Topshop:

Especially the first dress. It is absolutely beauty incarnate and I want it so badly. Trouble is, I don't particularly have £150 to buy it, nor do I actually have anywhere to wear it either... It's too pretty just to wear to go shopping.

Louboutin Galore

Okay, so in light of many of the runways for Autumn/Winter 2010.2011, such as Betsey Johnson, Holly Fulton and Alexander Wang, I have decided that yellow and tan shoes are definetely one of the ways to liven up the otherwise gloomy palette. Here are two of my favourite pairs by Christian Louboutin:

Now, I know these two pairs are from his current Spring/Summer collection, but with these colours, they'll carry me right through to autumn...or at least they would if I could afford them.

Here is my inspiration to buy yellow shoes for this autumn winter:

Betsey Johnson

Alexander Wang

Holly Fulton

New banner, take 2

Woo, another new banner. I swear, I will eventually make one that I am happy with...

Ok, so I know lace is very A/W 2009.2010, but I absolutely adore the stuff. I'm in quite a romantic, fairytale-ish mood today (no idea why), and I think lace personifies this to the fullest extent. It's so dramatic, yet womanly. I love it :) And I especially loved Valentino's lace masks for last winter season:

In fact, I love lace so much, I really want my wedding dress to be made out of it. Here are a couple that I love:

New banner

Haha, I was just messing around on a new picture editing programme I downloaded today called Gimp and my banner is what I created. I've never used this type of programme before, so my effort isn't amazing. Oh well, I'm going to try and try again until I've got a good one, but for now this one will do :)


I finally got my hair cut and I'm so happy. I got my side fringe turned into a full layered fringe and I absolutely love it. It's so different to every haircut I've had so far in my life, and I was looking for a bit of change.

That's the thing about hairstyles/cuts. They can change you so dramatically. Even just changing your parting can make a world of difference. I get so bored with my hair so quickly that I often have to think of quick ways to change it.

I wish it would hurry up and grow a few extra inches though 'cause I'm getting really tired of my hair bending because it rests just over my shoulders...

To fur or not to fur?

I read a private message (thanks William_St_Girl/Gail :-) ) I got on the forum Fashion Spot just now, and it was about a topic I find really interesting in the ethics of fashion. Fur. Is it right to wear it? Is it okay to scarifice innocent animals to look good? Does it make you a bad person if the feel of fur gives you thrills like no other clothing can?

A while ago I was going through my Grandma's cupboard and I came across some of the most beautiful items of clothing I have ever seen/felt. They were a hat and scarf, and unfortunately they were nade of real fur. Now, my Grandma is seasoned enough to have aquired these items before it was somewhat of an issue to own real fur. I, obviously, am of the generation that are scared that they will be kidnapped by the scary PETA extremists if I choose to wear some of the beautiful fur items that are around.

I am an animal lover - I love most creatures big and small, furry and feathered, hoofed and pawed, but I still like fur. Fur was the only type of clothing available for thousands of years, and even when other fabrics were introduced, furs and leathers were still the fabrics to turn to when the weather turned cold and wet. Fur and leather provide the best protection against both of aforementioned factors, it's why the animals have it in the first place. As I eat meat also, I don't see why I shouldn't be able to wear the byproduct of that process sometimes. And if it makes me look good, then so be it.

Now, I don't agree with the very inhumane methods that are maybe used fairly often to acquire fur, but I do still fundamentally like fur. I like the feel of it, and the look of it, and how warm and cosy it is, but i do think it would be amazing if someone, somewhere in the world could develop very real looking and feeling fur that was widely available. However, until that groundbreaking moment arrives, I think people should be able to wear what they want and not be berated for it, after all, it's a free world, right?

Also, the fur look is big in fashion nearly every winter, and it was big at catwalks such as Chanel (who used at least some fake fur, I'm not sure whether it was all fake), and it looks really pretty.
