WIW 31.10.11

Today I'm wearing my autumn wardrobe staple of my knee-high boots, my mustard cardigan and my navy dress with flower patterned bra section which I got from the Clothes Show at the NEC in Birmingham last December. I really wish I could go to the Clothes Show again this year but I'm so busy at uni, and the weekend that it's on I'm going Christmas shopping in London anyway :) I mean, the Clothes Show was good, but London is soooooo much better!! 

Have nice days y'all xx

J Crew s/s 2012

I really wish I could afford to shop at J Crew, as this label is so young and fresh. Although obviously being better produced than my clothes, my style is also quite similar to a lot of the looks produced by J Crew. I just wish there were some J Crew stores in Britain!

Marc by Marc Jacobs RTW s/s 2012

I'll keep this simple. Marc Jacobs has excelled himself with this collection.

Jean Paul Gaultier RTW s/s 2012

Not only do I adore the above looks, I really like the way in which JPG set this show out. He had the models walking down the runway holding numbered cards corresponding to the look they were modelling. Not only is this a brilliant idea, but the models seemed to have fun with the cards - messing around and fanning themselves with them - and thus looked like they were having fun doing the show. This is always lovely to see as for me, there is nothing worse when looking through photos of fashion shows, than models who look like they're bored, or couldn't care less about being there. 

Diane Von Furstenberg RTW s/s 2012

Ever since I watched the first season of Whitney Port's "The City" in which she works at DVF, I've been interested in the label. I really enjoy looking through her collections as her use of printed fabric always seems to go down well. Her spring/summer 2012 collection is no different, with the photos above being simply a few of an incredible line. 

Dolce & Gabbana s/s 2012

Dolce & Gabbana is not a label I usually enjoy perusing, and I must say that although I'm writing this incredibly short review, and I do like the outfits in the above photos, I wasn't impressed with the line as a whole. Apart from the first image, the fruit pattern fabric was simply awful in my opinion. None of the dresses were cut in a way that showed off the fabric, and the lines that had been sculpted into the dress deformed the print completely.

Dior RTW s/s 2012

Of course, Christian Dior is another VERY famous name in the fashion industry. The bohemian, floaty dresses created by the designers for the spring/summer 2012 line are all gorgeous. The prints of the dresses are so feminine and I'm really hoping that these feminine style prints show up on the high street so that I can join in with this trend!

Chloe s/s 2012

The blue pants in the first image are one of my absolute favourite items from all of the spring/summer 2012 shows. Although Chloe is not one of my favourite labels, I really love the casual and yet chic and tailored look of the new collection. The pastels work well with the bright colour-blocked handbags and I'm really looking forward to seeing what they do for a/w 2012 :) 

Chanel RTW s/s 2012

When looking through the latest shows, it may be predictable, but I ALWAYS without fail go straight for Chanel. There is a reason that Chanel is the most famous fashion label in the world. The dresses are always beautiful and sculpted, with tailored details that work well with the feminine image. J'adore Chanel!

Oscar de la Renta RTW s/s 2012

I absolutely adore the bright colours used by Oscar de la Renta in his spring/summer 2012 collection, but also in many of his previous collections. I always remember the scene in the docu-film "The September Issue" when the Vogue team visit Oscar de la Renta for a preview of his latest collection, and one of the dresses is an incredible vibrant orange. Absolutely beautiful :)

Carolina Herrera s/s 2012

Worn by the likes of Blake Lively, Carolina Herrera's gowns never fail to amaze. Her s/s 2012 collection is no exception, with the floral prints and floaty gowns bringing together a cohesive and stunning collection. Absolutely adore it :) xx

Bill Blass s/s 2012

Can't say I've ever bothered to look at any Bill Blasso clothing, but I'm so glad I looked at the spring/summer 2012 line on! Its so chic and beautiful. Definitely going to become a designer that I regularly check up on :) 

Anna Sui s/s 2012

I've always loved the floaty almost bohemian style of Anna Sui's dresses, but she's really excelled herself with her spring/summer 2012 line. For me, its not only the bohemian style, but also the beautiful patterned fabric used. I would absolutely LOVE to own one of her dresses, but alas, the cheapest of them are still $400. Maybe in years to come :) x

Alexander McQueen RTW s/s 2012

Sarah Burton's first show since the Royal Wedding took place during Paris Fashion Week. As always with the Alexander McQueen line, the dresses shown were quirky but elegant, with this season's main focus on feathers and ruffles. I must say, McQueen is not necessarily a designer I would name amongst my favourites, but following the beautiful work Burton accomplished with the two dresses for the Royal Wedding, I couldn't wait to see what she produced. And I wasn't disappointed! The dresses are sculpted, elegant, and yet fun! Above are my three favourite looks shown in the Paris show :)

What I'm wearing - 27.10.2011

I absolutely adore what I'm wearing today!! And its the first time I've worn most of this outfit too so I'm dead excited! :) Vogue UK's "look for this autumn/winter" is knee high boots, shorts, and a polo neck jumper. And look what I've got on!! The teal polo neck and the grey and brown chequered shorts are from H&M, and the knee high boots are the same as yesterday, new favourite shoes, from New Look. Have a fabulous day guys, I'm going home for the weekend this afternoon so may not blog over the weekend (all my nice clothes are here so I'll be wearing scruffs at home!) xx

What I'm wearing today...

Today I've gone for a bit of a mish mash of colours really, but ultimately I like the result - it may be due to me only having 5 hours sleep so forgive me if you think it's hideous!! I'm wearing my grey slouchy beret from M&S, my blue and white striped jumper from Primark, my olive/grey shorts from New Look and my FAVOURITE new tan knee high boots, also from New Look. What are you all wearing today? N x

Today I wore....

Sorry about the moody face in this picture guys, I'm majorly tired! Today I'm wearing my casual terracotta/tan blouse from Primark, my sequin beret from River Island, the comfiest trousers in the world, otherwise known as my flower print pallazzo pants from Quiz, and due to my tiny legs but majorly long trousers, my black wedged sandals from New Look. NOT a good outfit to be wearing when it decides to absolutely pour down in Canterbury when you're walking home from dinner, but amazingly comfy nonetheless! Hope you've all had good days!! N xx

Today I'm wearing....

Today I'm having a casual day. I'm sporting a breton striped jersey top from the Gap, black pumps from New Look, and my favourite black jeans, also from New Look. I've had these jeans for 5 years now and they're still in relatively good condition, and they're the comfiest trousers I own (bar my pallazzo pants!) They're a true wardrobe staple, much like a little black dress. I'm also using my cream and tan satchel bag from Primark, which is perfect for uni as the tan goes with pretty much every colour you could imagine and its the perfect size for some A4 paper, my pencil case and a bottle of water :) so yeah, sorted. Have a nice day everyone :) xx
