Missoni at MFW

If I could've gone to one show this season, I would have wanted to be at Missoni. 
I love this collection. The bold prints screamed Africa, where the shapes and textures were more of a nod to Mexico. The collection as a whole shows the evolution that has taken place since the last fashion week.
J'adore!

LFW wish list 2

A selection of my favourite looks from Antonio Berardi's collection. 
I want about 99% of the collection, so it was hard to narrow down what to show you.
The opening look. 
Rosebuds were everywhere in this collection.

New tailoring shapes were the backbone of the collection. 
I love the unfinished hem on the skirt too.




I LOVE this jacket. 
It was also in white, black and silver. 
I need all four :)

The finale piece. 

I'm so excited to watch the Burberry Prorsum show online in just four hours time!

LFW

I'm even more gutted this week that I can't be at London Fashion Week.
I know a few people who are going/been invited, but I have to enjoy it through the internet.
Here's my favourite looks from PPQ RTW last night :)

This gorgeous print was all over the collection.
I can't really decide what it reminds me of yet though.
I especially love the bags with the print on.
They are officially on my wish list!!!




I also love the burnt orange dresses and  playsuits.

NYFW - Preen

Another one of my favourite fashion houses have shown already at NYFW.
Preen, like Thakoon, and elements of Victoria Beckham's collection features explosions of whites and silvers. 
This pale palette is showased in minimalistic designs and cuts but with a little extra. Think pleats (picture 3) and ruffles (2) and interesting apron-like extras on their trouser suits and shift dresses (1 & 6).

NYFW

My favourite Victoria Beckham pieces from her spring 2011 RTW collection. 

I'm really sad that I'm not at NY fashion week. Instead, I have to look at all the collections on style.com.
As you should know, I'm the biggest fan of VB. 
I was really excited about the unveiling of this collection as its the biggest one she's done.

The bags are also designed by miss VB herself, and the shoes are once again by Brian Atwood.

Morning blogosphere! 
Not a lot has been going on in my little world recently. 
If you follow me on twitter (if you don't, I forgive you, just click here), you may know that I won, with 500 others, the H&M UK competition last week which was a £100 voucher.
I'm super excited about it because I've never really won anything (apart from a PS1 game from a cereal box when I was like 10.)
Straight away I downloaded the H&M app for my iPhone.
It's a really cool app btw. It has this feature where you can add things you like to your 'wish list' and it totals all the prices together. Great for a budget.
The voucher came on Monday so I haven't had a chance to spend it yet, but I probably will tomorrow. 
Stay tuned my lovelies :D

[NEWS]

So the news on twitter this morning is that Lanvin are going to be designing a collection for H&M.
H&M have been teasing their followers for the past week with video clues. 

 
The collection will be revealed on 2nd November and  in stores on the 23rd - I've already put it in my diary. :P
(Lanvin haven't confirmed or denied this yet.....please let this be true!)



What are you hoping to see in the Lanvin/H&M collection?

EDIT: Lanvin have now confirmed that they are designing for H&M.

OMG!

How is it September already?!?!
None of the things on my 'August To Do' list have been sorted out.
Well, apart from one thing, but more about that later. :)

I haven't been a very good blogger recently.
Job hunting, baking and other stuff that I just can't talk about yet have been getting in the way.
So yeah, my mind has been elsewhere.
Although, I managed to do a bit of shopping the other day. Treated myself to some Topshop goodies. A little out of my price range atm, but what the hell.

The rest of the week is going to be full with trying to become a stylist/merchandiser.
Any advice would be much much appriciated. :)
Also, follow me on twitter :)

(if anyone wants the recipe, I am happy to share.)

Sorry again for the rubbish posts recently.
