High Fashion - High Street Fashion.

Below is my interpretation of Dior's AW10 look using Topshop.. for £126. Obviously it is not going to be a replica, as if it were Dior wouldn't have done it.


Coffee Crepe Wideleg Jumpsuit £50, Metallic Cracked Pewter Chain Strap Bag £26, Disc & Bead Feather Drops £25, Nails in In The Red £5, Lip Stick in Blush £7, Eyes in Good As Gold & Potion £6.50 each, all Topshop.


Dear Santa.

Father Christmas,

I have been extra good this year, just unable to save enough for this necessity. It is expensive but that's why I am leaving you an extra mince pie.

I have included a picture for extra ease in shopping and to omit any chance of error.

Silver Style.

Premium Silver Mini Ornate Metal Satchel, £50, Topshop.

This. Bag. Is. Am. Az. Ing. I want it and I want it now. Every boring piece of clothing I've shoved to the back of my wardrobe can enjoy a rebirth thanks to this bag. It could be one of those 'aslong-as-I-have-this-bag-I'll-never-have-another-outfit-crisis' bags. And it would never get old and tatty, because then we would just call it an antique. It could save the day like the mini knight in armour it is. Have I gone too far yet? I do tend to do that.

A Little Loveliness.

My latest perusal of the internet unearthed these lovely pieces.

I love this dress but don't think I have the shoes or bags to dress it without going leather over-load.

You can never have too many tee's which are as equally stylish as it is comfy.

Just because it's time my lipstick collection was expanded and following his latest works of art, who better to expand it than Tom Ford?

Private Blend Lip in Black Orchid, £35, Tom Ford

Cute but arguably a little glitz and glam for me.

Who doesn't love a timeless piece that is enough to brighten any Winter wardrobe?

Too Cuff To Bluff.

I'm liking cuffs at the moment. In particular, cuffs on shoes. I think they're an easy way of turning a relatively boring or simple outfit into something more exciting. I would wear them with ankle skimming jeans, cropped chino-esque trousers or a pencil or leather skirt. But nothing that comes within a few inches of the cuff in question. Below are a few pairs which have tickled my fancy.

Every time I see Rihanna's video for Only Girl, I love the outfits in it a little more. I have always loved Rihanna's style as she has got the 'fashionable yet not a follower', 'gorgeous but not girly' look perfected. She is feminine but in a masculine way, and I think this has only got bigger and better since her incident with Chris Brown. A lot of the items below would look sickly sweet if they were part of a matchy-matchy outfit but how Rihanna has been styled in both the video and for her performances of the song have, what I would consider to be, the perfect balance. The video reflects this well with it's balloons and flowers contrasted against military boots and dark make-up. As a result I had a little look to see what I could find. Now, I'm not saying I wouldn't look quite as good parading round in an underwear set, but all the same I wanted to find some.

And to go underneath any of these dresses a standard tutu will do the trick. For one of her outfits she has a long, tulle skirt which can be found in most dance shops or even better, you can get one made cheaply and you get to choose the length, colour and how many layers it has.

Finally, the reason for this post; Rihanna - Only Girl.
