Baby V!

So in light of the "fabulous" High School musical three coming out this month, i thought i should do a post on my favourite style icon....
Vanessa Hudgens.
So you may scorn at the fact she is in high school musical, but you have to admit this girl dresses fabulous. I definitely admire this girl for being a normal healthy weight for her age, unlike a lot of starlets these days, apart from the photo scandal, i do think she is a great role model.
Whilst gracing the cover of Lucky Magazine this month, she was on the cover of the September issue of teen vogue. I do adore the colour scheme, it was fresh and bright. I do wish they had left her hair down.
She also has/had a mediocre singing career, unlike her hsm fame.

Could I Per-Suede you?

I love Suede boots,there is something about them that are ultimately chic. After looking around at the new boots online here are 3 faves!
Uggs, $130, are a must have in winter, they are great for stomping round the house, walking the dog ( when its not muddy!) and shopping. Trust me once you have worn them you never go without, kinda ugly ish but super warm and snuggly.
Minnetonkas! So cute and fun but go with everything. $98 but there is always a 10% discount floating around from UO! Nicole Richie and Lauren conrad are huge fans!
I also love these by Steve Madden "arizonaa" boots$109!

Little J!
My how you have transformed since the first season of gossip girl. Poor little jenny Humphrey has turned into a rocker chic.
When taylor momsen came on to the tv screen, people liked little j's Innocent kind of annoying character but over the season jenny shed this look.
circa 2006- Taylor with brown hair! Well this concludes that she looks so much better blond.
Then came the rise of not so little J, stealing Blair's crow. She cut her hair, stole her friend's moms dress, made enemies with Blair, dated a gay guy! not bad for little j!?
Flash foward to this month! You can just picture it!
" Ha have you seen Taylor's new hair" -Jessica Szohr " Stop it your making me giggle"- Leighton Meester
" Sorry but i couldnt help but laugh"- Jessica Szohr
" Stop it you guys, im trying to keep a straight face "-Nicole Fiscella
" Can you hurry up and take the picture, i cant stand to listen to cackles any longer" Taylor momsen
5 secs Later.....
Taylor storms off, to the loo to look in the mirror, while reassuring herself this is a good look for her.
Ok so a little bitchy, but the new look is so BAD!
P.S sorry about the lack of updates, to put it mildly i had severe writers block! but I'm back, bad and ready to blog!

You gotta be joking!

Either mary kate and ashley are playing with the world or they are screwed up! Simple basics for crazy prices, its even worse that lauren conrads overpriced line

Cotton Peter Shirt $490!

"Saddle-shoulder" Tee, cotton/cashmere blend, $450

Modal Tee $275 - modal = rayon!!!

Cotton Pants $700

Now maybe these prices are more fitting for gucci or chanel, not some celebrity line.

So today i decided to try out some perfume in my local Boots, damn i love that store. I tried Juicy Couture's perfume and Rock n Rose by Valentino. I didnt like the juicy couture perfume as it smelled of old lady on me which is suprising as you would think juicy couture would channel a fresh and young demopgraphic? I loved Rock n Rose by Valentino, its fun and fresh with an air of sophistication!
I still dont think its the right perfume im looking for, i want a sweet, warm smelling perfume like Britney's Fantasy, miss dior cherie or Escada sunset heat.
Any recs?

Fashion Books i adore

Fabulosity:What it is and How to get it- Kimora Lee Simmons
This book gives an insight into the fabulous world of Kimora Lee Simmons, it's not just a style guide infact most of the book is either biography of her in the modeling world, all about how to get fabulously, Finance , self confidence and how to dress like her. The book is a wonderful insight into "Chinky Giraffe"'s ( read the book and you will get the chinky giraffe comment) life and diva and outlandish fashion is a light and fun read which will give simple tips like how to walk like a supermodel, always send thank you notes and not to spend frivilousy.
Personally this is a favourite of mine, which i always refer back to when feeling sick ( Guess why this book came up, yup that's right i have a cold) and is a fun staple that every girl should have in her wardrobe,Whoops! i mean bookcase.
That extra half an inch, Hair Heels and Everything In Between- Victoria Beckham This book is another personal favourite of mine, with tips on where to buy the best tank top, on dressing for special occasions, everyday wear, accessorizing, make up and making the most of your wardrobe. Its not a book to be taken too seriously and even the fashion goddess admits she still loves uggs and applies fake tan when David's away.The Book is friendly and witty, which makes the book easy to read and hard to put down, with fabulous illustration, fun pictures and if a little shallow but i think its a fun book to have. Next on my list to buy: Fashion Babylon The Goddess Guide A to Zoe!

first mani/pedi

After many years of painting my nails myself, I decided to get my first manicure/ Pedicure? Usually I do it myself on a Sunday night, with a little bit of pampering, removing and swishing on nail polish then applying Clingfilm to my feet after slathering Body lotion. I loved the whole pampering thing, the lady doing my manicure and pedicure at the same time was fabulous, it’s not as simple as painting your nails and shaping. It’s the little things that make the cost worth it, the foot spa which massages your feet while the lady is massaging your toes with your best girl friend next to you gabbling away.

After the shaping, filing and cutting of the cuticles, it was finally time for the painting of the nails. I chose a bright orange polish for my feet ( OPI Brights Power) and a lovely soft but rosy pink for my nails ( OPI dozen rosas). I instantly fell in love with the orange pop of colour. Overall the manicure lasted 3 days before chipping which is not a great amount of time but nail varnish doesn’t tend to stay on my nails for a long period. I think I will get manicures in the future, occasionally say around Christmas and Birthdays and maybe parties but it’s definitely a treat.

I adore OPI anyway so I would recommend it to everyone who does home mani/ pedis!! I will do a tutorial in the future about my clingfilm feet!

Teen choice awards.....

If i was going to the teen choice awards, i would wear this on the red carpet!

Standing Still

Although Fashion magazines, such as Vogue or Elle report new trends each month and the runway creates new trends.
Has Fashion actually moved on from a couple of years ago?
The Tunic, Gladiators, Skinny jeans and the volumous tops are still here to stay despite being popular for nearly two years!! Fashion seems to be stuck in a time warp, with no real hugely popular trend sticking like this lot!
Like the boot cut, the flare and the straight cut jeans, the skinny jean has become a modern day classic and is going to be hanging around for a while. Your thoughts?


Where all the blogging action happens...

I got this really cute knit in t.k maxx, i've been wanting a zebra print top for ages! It was orignally £95, which im not sure i would have paid that.

New Juicy Shorts! They are great in summer, i have a blue pair also. The colour is called lee and i bought them from ShopBop. New Juicy Pants, So cute and fun for lazing around! Abercrombie and Fitch hoodie! So cute and comfy although a little too warm for summer. Which i hope to wear like this^^ Ep " blaze of glory" season 2, the oc! Which is one of the best shows ever.

When lights go down

It's 5am, I've been awake since 2:45am after falling asleep at 11:30pm. I'm incredibly itchy and swollen after eating curry and can't sleep.
So what did i decide to do?
Blog of course!!
All is good in the hood, finally shipped my "myus" order, so lots of goodies will be winging my way very soon. Not exactly fashion stuff, but some cute items never the less. An abercrombie hoodie, a pair of juicy pants and shorts, 27 dresses dvd, ipod armband for running! Which all should be here by Thursday!
Herve Leger
Am i the only one who is entranced by his dresses?
His bandage style dresses, seem to look fabulous on everyone, fitting tightly, showing of or enhancing curves.
Kim Kardashian is a huge lover of Herve dresses and is often seen wearing them on the red carpet, they fit her body shape perfectly, showing off her curves not hiding them!

How fabulous does Megan fox look in this pink number, a pair of open toed black louboutins would have looked far better than pointy gold heels which do not seem to go with the flow of the outfit.

Ignoring the fake boobs, fake tan and fake hair colour, isn't the dress Victoria Beckham wore to the Marc Jacobs show so amazing. I could see this dress looking darling on Rihanna.

Quote from Net-a- "Hervé Léger was a huge fashion hit in the '80s and pioneered the body-con look, which has returned to the fashion spotlight in recent seasons. The label was relaunched in 2007 with BCBG designer Max Azria at the helm. His designs are a modern interpretation of the signature bandage dress and have already earned a host of stylish celebrity fans including Kate Bosworth and Keira Knightley."

Personally I adore studs, although I don’t wear them often which is also the case with most jewellery. Although I should do, as they are a simple way of adding chic-ness to your outfit without overpowering it, which can happen with hoops or dangly earrings. I love the way studs can pull and outfit together or add a bit of style when running to the supermarket in sweats. They are all about having fun.

These super cute studs are from claire's and come in most letters. The best part is they are only $5.50.

Juicy Couture Studs for $52 which are pretty neat and will go with anything.

Forever 21's rose plastic earrings are ever so darling and will look great in summer. $3.20!
