Hinged Heels

These Donna Karen crocodile hinged shoes look pretty cool, but why would you want your shoes to bend the way your foot clearly can't?

Filippa K

I am always looking for a casual but cool look that doesn't look too boring and too Gap like. I still love a hardcore look but I think that these looks from Filippa K is a good base. Then all I need to do is add some hardcore boots, a leather jacket and a touch of studding.

Silver vs Gold

I am a silver girl all the way but when I see gold worn well I think it looks really fresh, especially during Fall as gold looks amazing with autumnal colours.
Are you a gold or silver girl or do you wear both depending on your mood?

Live British Vogue Photoshoot

I tried to rush to the Live Vogue Photoshoot at Somerset House after work on Friday but they decided to finish early. I just made it there for 6 pm but it was meant to go on until 9pm. There were many unhappy stylish 9-5ers there! If you were lucky enough to see the photoshoot through the glass wall you would have seen Nick Knight shooting Natalia Vodianova for a fantasy themed story. A friend of mine was one of the lucky ones, she sent me this photo.
The Somerset House will be having another live shoot on Nov 12 for Re-bel fanzine photographed by Bella Howard, get there early.

Pretty DIY Poppies!

What a beautiful way to remember on November 11 by handmaking your own poppy!
After my friend at work lost her father last year, she wanted an extra special poppy for rememberance. She now makes these satin poppies for her and her 87 year young mother who goes to church wearing it every year. She is creative but also very generous and gives to charity all year long!

If you are an X-factor fan you can also buy these satin poppies from Yarwood-White that the finalists wore last week for £35, but only £5 goes to charity. Surely, it doesn't cost £30 to make this poppy?

Simply Beautiful-Exclusive Elle UK Covers

If you subscribe to Elle UK you get a simplified version of their on-stand covers. I think these look stunning next to all the other magazines I sift through. I know that all the slogans are needed on the cover to get peoples attention to buy them, but to me, this simple cover would make me buy it instead. What do you think?

Lace up boots...Price Compare!

Ann Demeulemeester -£695

All Saints-£165

River Island -£74.99

This morning I wore my new River Island lace up purchase to work and a girl complemented me on my "All Saints" boots. I thought I would see how much money I saved from finding this high street gem so I did a little price comparison. I would say I did good!

Topshop Holiday Bunnies!

Do you remember the little coco bunnies from my very first post? Well, I wish I could post Fifi Lapin everyday because I adore these cute fashionable bunnies. Now Topshop is selling Fifi Lapin charity holiday cards with cute Topshop outfits on! My girlfriends are actually going to receive cards this year, that is if I don't keep them all for myself.
