We don’t know what it means, but it’s Prada so that’s quite normal. What we do know is that it’s stunningly lovely. I’m particularly enamored with that eye make up…

To round up a couple of days worth of accessories indulgence we look at the trend for weeny bags. Not the most practical, but still a very elegant look. In our streetsyle shot of Susie Bubble, from LFW, you can see she’s opted for a second, more functional bag along with her super sweet, colour blocked, mini bag. That’s probably the reality of this accessories option, unless you are super disciplined and minimal- or have a boyf with big pockets…

I was out doing a bit of retail researching on Friday when I was tempted in to Primark by these two looks, straying frighteningly close to the original inspiration. To be honest the prints may be close, but the cuts, silhouettes, base cloths and execution are far from inspirational- but what do you expect for these bargain prices!?

We just had to share this with you, spotted in the window of Prada yesterday. This wee fella is teeny tiny, yet still she’s packing a rather impressively large style punch, heavily accessorized with some of Prada’s finest jewels as well as those saucy fishnets…
We spotted these looks from Prada‘s pre-Spring collection in their Bond Street windows just the other day. How gorgeous that colour palette? Well, its so gorgeous we had to have a go at pantone matching it for you. Our first colour palette post for some time, but worth the wait, wouldn’t you agree?

If you’re wondering what to get for me for Valentines Day, you could do worse than wrapping me up either of these sumptuous jewellery options. Okay, if you’re considering your Christmas credit card bills, then I suggest the Lanvin pendant (its available on Net-a-Porter), but if you’re in a budget busting mood and beguiled by how very delighted I will be, then feel free to go for this ever so plush presentation box from Prada. Wowsers!

As it’s party season, we’re being utterly spoilt by some stunning frocks out on the high street right now. The classic choice is, of course, the little black dress, and here are some of our favourites. From high end to mass market, this has got to be the fashion equivalent of a ‘sure thing’. These don’t look faddy, but they are all fashion relevant. Tempting enough to make you feel like you would really be missing out if you didn’t make a purchase, but with the longevity to be one of those things you could pull out of your wardrobe for season’s to come without feeling too out of step with the fashion moment.
According to fashion retailers, it’s most definitely party season. Now, you may not feel much in the mood to celebrate, what with Euro zone melt downs and the cost of living spiraling out of control- but there is one thing that fashion does very well and that thing is to encourage escapism. Oh boy, if we ever needed a touch of escapism its right about now! So, we say slip on some sequins and channel your inner disco ball. It won’t save Greece, but it will dazzle you into a party mood for the night.
We thought last Winter was a max out on sequins, sparkle and embellishment, but this Winter has raised the spangle quotient even higher. Take your pick from silver and gold, bold brights a la Dolce or more subtle darks inspired perhaps by Marc Jacobs. If your in the mood for a show stopping frock or a more minimalist approach, there are so many fabulous options out there, for every budget to choose from. Here are our top picks from this month’s deliveries. Enjoy!
To round up our week of highlights from our Autumn ‘Accessories’ report, today we go a little wild. Its all about animal inspired looks, from skins to skin prints, full on fur to real reptiles. We were anticipating an explosion of snakes across the fashion world after Chloe’s stunning snakeskin printed Autumn ’11 show, but the leopard spot is still holding its own after being a firm fixture for season upon season.
There’s lots of real fur out there too, some of which we have featured already in our first look at Autumn- check out the post here. We have added a couple more looks in with this selection. If you suffer from chilly kidneys, Miu Miu has the tres chic answer, and it seems that YSL is the first stop if you are after a fur balaclava… As usual, we’ll stress that we are not at all supportive of real fur and these would look even better if they were faux.
