The Funnel Neck Coat

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

Black Olli CoatWinter is undoubtedly the season to look uber-stylish, chic, totally smart and super warm. I always find that I never have a smart coat to make it through the blistering cold season with me. So I’ve been looking for a preferably wool mix, long, black and most important of all smart and warm winter coat.

Rick Owens Funnel Neck CoatTed Baker has a lovely military style, wool mix, funnel neck coat called Olli costing £230. The fitted, trendy coat is perfect to finish off an outfit for a lunch or dinner date, hard days shopping or unfortunately for most, a hard days work. Alternatively Rick Owens Lilies Padded Funnel Neck Coat is just as hip. The black wool, angora and cashmere coat is £520 and is perfect for the dress to impress, quintessential city girl.

The Ted Baker, Olli coat is available at www.tedbaker.com and Rick Owens Lilies Padded Funnel Neck Coat is available at Net-a-porter.


Diesel Chunky Knit Dress

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

Diesel Chunky Knit DressSuper chunky knits are filling the highstreet rails faster than ever and all the celebs are wearing them too. For a big statement look, its better to go for a bright colour or bold pattern. That’s why I’ve chosen this one from ASOS. The contrasting blue and red aztec stitching is an instant eye catcher.

It is made by Diesel and has a discreet metal branded disc on one of the cuffs. Knits are strictly for daywear only, so don’t try and pull one off for the evening. Now make sure you balance the oversized top with either skinny jeans or tights on the bottom, and for curvier girls, you should belt up with a waist clincher to create an instant shape. This chunky knit dress will set you back £120.


Odille Green Lace Lingerie

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

Odille LingerieI am a huge fan of Victoria Secret lingerie and have recently signed up to the mailing list for their season catalogues. I spotted what I think is a cute, feminine and sexy green pretty lace padded bra lingerie set. I decided as I was visiting the States to wait until I got there but was disappointed to find out they don’t stock the same items as the catalogue in the shops. Since then I had forgotten about it until I was browsing ASOS and found it there!

Odille is a new lingerie brand producing some sexy little numbers and this pretty lace padded bra and boy short set is just what I want. Priced at £22 for the bra and £12 for the matching boy shorts, this lingerie is a must buy this season.

Pedro Garcia’s Ballerina Flats

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

Pedro Garcia Icon Satin Ballet FlatsI first spotted the ballerina trend on a weekend break in New York and was a little apprehensive about the whole look. I love ballerina shoes but on ballerinas, so I tried them on but my friend didn’t quite feel it, in his words “NO”. So I left them, but now I am seeing the trend everywhere and the temptation has started. I love the ballet flats that have been around for an age but the actual slippers are so delicate.

Pedro Garcia Iris Satin Ballet FlatsThese Pedro Garcia Icon satin ballet flats
are adorable and in my favourite colour, green. They have a Swarovski detailed buckle that gives the flat a bit of glitz, cost £215 and also come in black at the same price. Alternatively these Pedro Garcia Iris satin ballet flats are just as cute, are a little cheaper at £135 and come in brown.

Both Pedro Garcia ballet flats can be found at Net-a-porter.

Sunday, October 21st, 2007

Martin Margiela KnitBe bold and daring with your knits this season! Just because its winter it doesn’t mean we have to dress dull and boring! Look at these fab knits; they’re great for adding colour and life into your winter wardrobe.

The first shocking pink knit is from Marti Margiela, I love the shape of this knit; the strong shoulders and batwing sleeves combined is a really striking look. Teamed with black tights, chunky platforms and finishing off with fuchsia pink lippy, be prepared to turn heads! The knit can be purchased from Browns for £545; they also have a great section of bold knits from the likes of Fendi and Cesari Fabbri.

A cheaper alternative can be purchased from River Island for £29.99; this knit also has the deep v-neck and the batwing sleeves, which is really hot for this season.

Mui Mui Jeweled Heel Pumps

Sunday, October 21st, 2007

Mui Mui Jeweled Heel PumpsWow, these bright red patent shoes are enough to brighten up anyone’s day. They have swarvoski jet beads covering the heel that make them stand out more than any ordinary pair of shoes. If you feel like your Autumn/Winter wardrobe is slacking then you need to get yourself a pair of these.

Mind you, they do cost £315,which for me is a bit much for a pair of shoes, but if its not for you then you need to grab yourself a pair. They will go with just about anything and will brighten up any outfit. They have been given the Lust Label in this weeks edition of Look magazine. Head over to Net-a-porter to bag your Miu Miu Jeweled heel pumps.

Kate Moss Lace CapeThe string of success continues for Kate Moss as her new Christmas collection is due to hit the stores both on the high street and online on the 25th October 2007. Hot on the heels of the previous sleek and stylish clothing range the next one is even better.

Think Victorian, black and grey and a whole lot of lace. Kate has followed much of her own style again with ultra skinny and ultra flared trousers that would be complimented by her gorgeous Asymmetric Leather Jacket. To not fail for the Christmas season there is a selection of party dresses too. The Spotty Bandeau Dress is cute and charming along with the elegant Vintage Grecian Style Dress in black. But my favourite, the Victorian Style Lace Cape is the item I am lusting after. I am a huge fan of Victorian style garments and this season is really working with my taste!

Scarlett for Reebok

Sunday, October 21st, 2007

Scarlett for ReebokIf your are a sporty chick but still like to look feminine and sexy, you have to check out Scarlett Johansson’s new Hearts collection for Reebok! It is a retro inspired sports collection that combines classic sports looks with feminine details.

I think this collection is really cute, perfect for a girly girl that has a gym addiction! Scarlett came up with the concept of ‘Hearts’ as she thought it was a very feminine character and a great logo to decorate garments in the collection. This cute little hoody is a great example of how the Heart logo has been printed onto a garment. This particular hoody comes in grey and a baby pink.

Heart HoodyThe collection also consists of some really funky footwear and clothing that I personally think are too good for the gym! So if you’re looking for a sexy but still sporty look, I think this collection is perfect for you!
