what i'm loving : scarves - and a update.

its eloise checking in with you again for another post.
[ will be an eloise update at the end of this post ]
so i thought id be interesting to share with you what i been loving lately and this has been scarves. now i dont understand why but i dont own many scarves i have two so i plan to get some more at a later date. but anyway i think scarves are such a statement in your wardrobe - but what i have really been loving is wearing scarves in your hair like a headscarf or a turb-band which is a different way of wearing them ( sort of abit boho ish ) . so ive been trying to track some and i have my grandma on the case looking for some as she used to own some so she's looking for them for me - what a lovel'y 

so here are some scarves i have picked out from highstreet stores which i thought you may like so you can be cosy for this autumn winter. there will be links to the websites they are from so you can go directly to the ones you like with no fuss - aren't i so kind! 

So which one is your favourite ?

001 Update - so this is my personal little update which some of you may find interesting . . . had my minor op today on my foot - wasnt immensely pleasant not going to go into details but the burning was the worst part of the procedure which i had done without anestetic on one of them was bloody aweful but i sat through it nevertheless until i got to the car i had a little sob about it - now ive been told i must walk on my foot directly and should keep renewing bandage and that so currently got my foot up typing this post and hopefully i will be healed in a few days - perfect timing so everything will be perfect for my holiday when i'm going to italy *hurrah*

if you want to talk to me fell free to follow me on twitter and tell me what your username is in a comment below as i wont be able to see your tweets unless i follow you back and then we can talk as i love talking to all of you lovelies so much - can't wait to tweet to you soon.

navaho shoes on office - the costly trend.

so i was looking for some shoes for my new school- long story when this brand caught my eye 'navaho' on the office website. they specialise in native american inspired shoes and to me they are simply stunning. i love the colour scheme on the shoes and the cut of them if you will . i have picked my favourite ones out from the website. but to me there is a major downside to this brand - the price. ususally im quite generous and will allow a little over £25 max for general wear shoes but the top two beauties are £45 . which to me is silly money. as they hardly are cleanable material as they are suede and will mark easily so i dont see how they can be that much moeny. i suppose that what make a label a label - the heafty price tag.

i love the natural colour scheme on these and the fabric design on the front of them - they will add some vintage flair to any cool toned outfit worn. in plain english 'they're gorggeous'

these shoes also come in a darker colour scheme which i'm also loving

so this is the same shoe type as above but in a darker colour scheme. i love the blue and orange hues together looks so pretty. this pair will be harder to wear outifr wise but on the plus side they are less likely to show marks or dirtyness because of the deep colouring - still beautiful all the same.

i'm a sucker for these type of shoes and so i was immediately drawn into these shoes. when i first saw them they reminded me of somehting luna's dad would wear in harry potter 'sorry to all the magic haters . i LOVE harry potter and so i will talk about it as much as i would like. anyway i love the detailing on these and these shoes are so unique if only they was MUCH CHEAPER they'd be awesome. i think primark should do these shoes like these in the stores they'd be a huge hit with everyone.

its a shame because i really LOVE these shoes so much but due to my new school clothes + sportswear ( i had to buy 4 different pairs of trainers formy school - stupid restrictions and multitude of sporting activites)  i dont have the spare cash and ' i need a dollar dollar - a dollar is what i need' and a little more to be able to buy these autumn foot delights. such a shame . . .

what do you think of the shoes and the matching price?

trend alert : a passion for lace on Lanvin A/W 2011

taa dah.
i'm back with a post to you all about lace. this trend got its heritage from the minute Catherine Middleton stepped out of the car at West Minister Abbey in a Sarah Burton's exquisite wedding dress. with an imposing train detailed with  intricate appliques with hints of lace which cascaded down the piece. and this is what created the love affair of lace. 

now this affair was endorsed and re-created on the runway to fit the autumn winter trends. in this post i will be showing you how lace trend was incorporated on the Lanvin runway. i have picked out my favourite pieces and explain to you why i like them. 

i found this particular runway the lace detailing was particularly featured on very heavy-lace shifts - although there was the odd exception to the rule with some feminine lace cuts which were carefully applied  in a minimalistic view.

this is by far my favourite lace incorporated look from the runway as it is all entirely lace the way the shoulders have been roached in a waterfall manor it just stunning. finished off with some tribal inspired jewellery and some minimal leather boots and gloves. gorgeous although you wont be seeing me wearing that anytime soon.

next up is this gothic edgy piece. which features a turtle neck if you will incorporated into the dress - long time no see on Lanvin runway. a classic shift dress but with a twist with a single layer of lace to be sleeves and a classic leather belt to cinch in the waist and to sculpt to the wearers figure. a more wearable item out of the runway - i wish i could own .

lastly a certainly over board look to really feature this trend. a full over coat made of lace - lets just wish she doesnt pluck it! as you can tell the lace used in all of the Lanvin runway is circular floral patterns which luckily for us has easily been merged into hughstreet items aka topshop's latest lace crop tops feature this detailing.

Finally to finish off this post i wanted to show you the make-up looks used on the runway and also the hair trend which all the models had. 

the makeup as you can see a quick messy smokey eye with a marl grey and black eyeshadow messily applied in the signature 'box shape' from the outer third of the lid to the crease and finally blended out towards the end of the brows to really open the eye. then the rest of the makeup is minimal to balance the face with suspected a neutral pink lipstick like angel from m.a.c dabbed onto the lips and blotted for a wash of colour.

“We wanted the girls to look like they’d done the makeup themselves. To that end, masacra was applied (and re-applied) to each girl’s lashes, so that they’d look ‘cloggy and clumpy’ the makeup is not at all perfect—it’s all about imperfection.” said the stylist


Redken wool shake 08 Gel slush texturizer was used to roughen the hair to create an intentionally thick hair. this was then messily combed back and all the hair was plaited , but then leaving about a 2 inch tip of unbraided hair. any loose parts were shaken and simply left as the whole idea was imperfection is beauty - and indeed it was beautiful.

“We’ve downplayed very glamorous clothes with a very easy hairstyle. Alber [Elbaz, Lanvin designer] wanted ease and femininity, so we did a very soft, very simple, very girly braid.” says the stylist.

trend alert : the high slit skirt

*neee nawh nee nawh*
trend alert- the sky high slit.
Skirt - Asos £25

wow what a stunning look I’m sure you will agree.we’ve already been through the trend of the maxi skirt but now both designers and highstreet have added their own touch to this look by …. adding a slit to it. simple but yet effective.perfect for summer if you ask me making your legs more visible and letting a draft in …not so great in you live in the cooler countries *hint hint* uk you suck.

With this trend its not only for day wear it can be incorporated into an evening dress like this one has been done before but that’s why the clever people who think of these trend haven’t just gone for one slit in the skirt oh no they were more cool than that.

In some scenarios they’ve added two. To make it extra new and clever.don't over do it  highstreet please?!

So you’re wondering how can I achieve this look? Well lucky for you I have listed where the first killer skirt is from which is pictured in the photo above so you can wear this sure to tell me which one you like the best -day or night slit skirt look or both  if you cant decide .let me know in a comment below.
