Happy Halloween!

This is the classiest Halloween window display I have ever seen. Touches of gold rats, spiders and frogs are scattered throughout the display. Not a shade of orange in sight in this window at Diverse

Fashionable Wedding

I don't remember where I found this photo but I have been saving it for my not yet in the future, future wedding. I love that that it is a white houndstooth print and I absolutely loove the spiky headband.

I finally did a search and it is from Givency's Couture collection from Fall'09

Cover Up

The Snood. I have wanted a cozy cover up ever since I saw the Missoni AW09 show and now that there is a chill in the air I went looking. I found mine at Zara for £19 and I cannot take it off, it is so cute and cozy and I love the look when you pull it up like a hood.

H&M's higher end, sophisticated, structured, soft and cool line COS has been my favourite shop since I discovered it a year ago. Now they have an equally cool and clean website and magazine showing their new line, an article on the media shy Grace Coddington of US Vogue and some cool art. I have picked out my favourite pieces and am ready to go shopping on payday, thank goodness the clothes are also reasonably priced!
Check out the website and you will want to add it to your favourites asap.

Louboutin says Barbie has "cankles"

First Barbie is too skinny, now her ankles are too fat. Christian Louboutin is redesigning Barbie's figure for Barbie's 50th anniversary, I am guessing it it to make his shoes look better on her. These top designers always need a skinnier than skinny model don't they? The shoes will come in mini Louboutin boxes though! He is designing three slimmer ankled Barbie's which will probably cost a fortune to go with the price of his shoes.

Sorry my little coco bunnies, I was in China for work, Dongguan to be exact, so I have not posted in a while. I was staring out my office window one day, dreaming of going back to the hotel for a nap which just happens to be in these photos, when I saw the silhouettes of these two beautifully contsructed shoes shining through the smoggy China air. It lifted my spirits for the afternoon reminding me that I work around gorgeous shoes all day long.

Disco Cavewoman called Balmain's Spring 10 look, "Disco Cavewoman", it sounds like something StyleMixer would spit out.
The Spring 10 Balmain show still had big shoulders which is great because the structured shoulders make women feel powerful (and also slimmer) so I hope this look lasts for a while.
This jacket looks like the softest, most perfect fitting, perfect signature shouldered Balmain leather jacket. I want it now but unfortunately it is way out of reach. I will just have to wait for All Saints to hopefully replicate it next year.

Do you have designers block? randomly connects two words together as you press the MIX button to create your new concept.
Today it gave me Garage Ninja, Victorian Symbolism and Metal Metal. What will you get?

Sweet or Gross?

I guess it is all depends on your past experience with birds whether you think the new AW Aquascutum ad campaign is sweet or gross. I showed this to some of the girls in my office and I either received a grimace or an awww cute. One girl said it depends if the birds are doves or pigeons. Well, considering that this was shot in Trafalgar Square in London, I'm going to say they are dirty pooping disease ridden little pigeons.
There is a video on the Aquascutum website here that shows you an archive campaign from 1955 shot in Trafalgar square with pigeons, I guess this was meant to bring back a classic ad, but to me all I can think of is how angry you would be if this bird poops all over your £1000 trench.
