Today I'm posting some pictures from V Magazine. I really loved this cool and modern editorial with an array of strong prints and very bold colours. The idea of moving images is great because you can view the outfits from all different angles and I also think is funny how small movements can really catch our eyes.
See you soon.

I hope you all have been well. Today's outfit post is also a new buy, which I could not resist!
Well, it all started a couple of weeks ago, when I passed by Topshop and started browsing through the sales racks. I saw some of these aviator sheepskin jackets but I was not on spending mood that day, so I didn't really look for one in my size to try it on. A couple of days later, I found a gift card for Topshop with full credit on it and like magic, the spending mood truly came back to me. I desperately needed of one these jackets as soon as possible!
They had it in 2 different finishes, one was black suede and the other was grey leather and the latter was the one I wanted! The question was would they have it in my size with the end of sales going at full swing?
That night, I checked on the website and they had it but I wasn't sure if the size was gonna be right and if I could add my voucher as part of the payment, so I waited until the next day and checked on the website again. Unfortunately the grey ones had already sold out, luckily I was near Topshop and managed to go there pretty early in the day. I managed to find one in my size and happily bought it.
The timing has been perfect, as it is getting very cold and it is freezing in London. I can't get enough of it and I have worn it for many days in a row. Today, I went for a strong aviator look with some pieces borrowed from my boyfriend's wardrobe too. (cozy)
I was wearing: Jacket and Scarf : Topshop, Cardigan: from my boyfriend, Cords: Cheap Monday, Boots: second hand, Sunglasses: Ray-ban.
See you soon.

Hope you all been well. First of all, I wanted to say a big thanks for all my new followers, I am so chuffed so many of you are supporting the blog!
So today, we are doing some window shopping... This is the Mayfair branch of the Lanvin shop in London.
They have recently done their windows and I love the brightness of it. The mannequins look great in glossy paint with huge wigs to match, looking very similar in expression to ones used on the H&M/Lanvin collaboration.
Hope you enjoyed.
See you soon.

I am loving some of the new Pre Fall 2011 collections and today I am posting 2 really cool ones, Alexander Wang and Preen, both never fail in attitude and give us plenty of inspiration for the cold days ahead!

I have always dreamt with a beautiful, functional and spacious closet. Well, who hasn't? A place where you can display your shoes and bags proudly, with plenty of room for all you clothes, hat boxes, jewellery and a chez lounge... sighs.
The celebrity closet! The dream of any girl. Christina Aguilera's has a burlesque cave with an impressive collection of shoes. Other shoe lovers are Jessica Alba and Eva Longoria both with classic wooden closets. Christina Ricci and Miley Cirus both opted for pink and bright rooms, boutique like rather than a conventional closet.
Mariah Carey's closet, looks more like a shop, or shall I say a 'maison'?!? It's quite unbelievable really!
The cosy and yet clean white closet belongs to Georgia Chapman, from Marchesa. (I am eyeing that Chanel bag on the corner!)
Actress Olivia Wilde. Another shop like closet, but the mirror and chandelier are romantic and bring some life into the room.
From one Olivia to another, our lady of style, Olivia Palermo.
I was expecting more of her closet to be honest, something classic, such as Jessica or Eva's. I love the carpet, it's fun and I would have it. The rest of the room looks like it's from Ikea. Maybe that is not so bad, take it from Ms.Palermo, keep it simple and anyone could have the celebrity closet too!
Kimora Lee Simmons, she has a mini bar, plasma TV and loads of leopard print. Plus 35 custom made Hermes bags and 500 pairs of jeans.
Paula Abdul, may have a 5,000 square feet closet, but it looks a bit tacky with those cheap sunglasses displays.
A simple life with a simple but pretty full closet for Nicole Richie.
Full of mirrors, posh and a very sumptuous boudoir for Paris Hilton.
Hope you enjoyed!

Video blog today!
OMG! I completely fell in love with this new video from Dior!
It's all about the new make up collection called "New look gris Montaigne" which is a beautiful collection all in grey tones and this video is so amazingly shot that really makes you desire (even more) to be a Dior Lady.
See you soon.

The colourful prints were inspired by sweets in the sweet shops. Funky T-shirts with muffin print for example get mixed with sequined trousers or jackets and even with faux fur.
Always using pastel colours and feminine prints on their collection. This time around inspired by Japan, so soft flowers and beautiful Japanese inspired prints were used. The colour of the season, camel. The South hemisphere seems to be following the same trend as us this winter.
Detail of the DIY jewellery. Broken pieces of china combined with crystals were used as necklaces.
A beautifully made collection in grey, black and white. I love the embelishments used here, a lot of beads, net, transparency and draping on this collection, which is right up my street. Ohhh and the shoes are amazing, I would love to have a pair too.
MARIA BONITA EXTRA
Another beautifully made and feminine collection, a mixture of silk camisoles and harem silk suits which are beautiful. Another favourite look of mine is the sequined short in nude, they which is gorgeous. I love the fact this collection is very neutral with a colourful twist on accessories, such as those great ballerina shoes.
Channeling Maison Martin Margiela big time, it's time for wig jacket on the Brazilian catwalks.
A youthful collection with beautiful maxi dresses, some hand printed fabrics with a pinch of grunge and Missoni.
See you soon.
