Chanel Ready To Wear Spring Summer Collection - Part 1

its designer time!
Today i am going to be writing a post about the Chanel Ready To Wear Spring Summer Collectiomn for Spring/Summer 2011 . As you all know fashion season are so early in the years as summer is released in winter and vise versa. As this runway was actually made on October the 5th 2010- for this year's summer 2011. Very organised and ahead of schedule if you ask me.

But strikes me about this runway at Paris Fashion Week is that all not all just like the pastels. Its nice to see that black is back in summer with hints and graduated colour from a simple chiffon overlay to a detailed frock. I feel this particular runway for SS/11 is the best i've seen yet.

As you can see Karl Lagerfeld ( a german fashion designer)made an appearance on the
I will be two posts on this particular runway one for 'detail and accessories and the other for 'MAIN runway' . As i found there is too much to share with you on this runway so it would be better for me to split it up abit!

Onto the runway...

As you can see its not all pretty pastels and delicate edges summer has gone back to basics with a sharp, surreal edge which invites us all to have a intriguing summer. I love the sharp detailing on this piece and the cutting of the materials which emits sharp but sophisticated! Look as the shoes on this piece they are breath taking and co-ordinate perfectly without being too 'heavy'!

As you can see colour has made an appearance but is subtle and free flowing chiffon which i like which portrays summer is just a season of weather which comes and flows without rules or restriction and is free.Also i love the mix of materials and prints look at the detailing on the bag! It certainly adds 'WOW factor' to the ensemble. Finished off with some black leather dynamic boots and hinting at some biker gloves- what says EDGY more than this ?

Now we are getting towards the more colourful pieces from the runway. This piece is ruffled up to the max with free flowing layers and think printed material with an almost tuxedo folded front which oozes authority.With added 'punch' with a statement necklace which a perfect mid-length cut. Looking effortless this season!

Now here is one of the few pastels on the runway.Showing a more vamped take on the innocent coloured longline dress.What i love most is the ripped detail with has black lace inside.Showing that in all love there is evil and vise versa. Topped off with polished hair and eye popping smokey eyes.

Now what adds summer more than a parasol . This look does truly replicate summer how it should be flowing print material which clashing accessories . What i love about this is the feminine edges with a perfect cut frame to show the shoulder blade which is then taken in for the outer edges having water-falled around her figure. Finished with some minted platformed with ribbon detail!

What is more cute than having a bouncing baby boy on the runway ?! I was immediately in love on how polished they both look quirky and cool in the hot summer heat. The phrase ' like father like son ' comes to mind. Was truly a 'cute' and 'real' edge to fashion - showing you you can be any and every age to enjoy the art of fashion.

got your brogue feet up?

got your feet up?
The much loved brogue shoes have been revamped!
But do you think this update on the shoes are a bit too much?

Prada have designed some new season brogues for SS11 which have a heafty £510 price tag attached. The media is of the moment are going to new heights over them right now, but personally i'm not their biggest fan.

I can't see myself wearing these shoes. Mixing brogues with trainers soles/platforms is just a tad too much for me to handle. I don't think they look as smart and vintage as the original brogues we are all familiar with.

Like all things once runway has started a trend the highstreet follows so this is what our stores have come up with to follow the 'brogues update'

Topshop + Miss Selfridge Alternatives

As you can see the high-streets version are no-way near and bright as the runways which i like as i'm not a fan of bright colour bursts myself and i generally settle for original staples in my wardrobe.Also i like the fact that topshop have kept the ditsy embossing on the front of the brogue so they still have the same reference as the originals!

What ones do you prefer Runway OR Highstreet?

missing 90210

it's me again.
a little typo post of me explaining that i'm really missing watching 90210 ive seen all of season 3 and was wondering when season 4 is ready as i miss it so much and can't wait to watch to watch the characters in college. so naturally if you know me when i miss something i retrieve a million of photos on the subject i'm missing - so naturally here are my 90210 inspirational pictures.

so i will leave you witht the obvious follow up question- who is your favourite 90210 character and why? would appreciate it if you left a comment below telling me who yours is.

if you were wondering who mine is - first place has to go to annie. i love her style and flair and her character is so honest and loveable and i've found she's developed alot since the beginning and has a willing nature on the show - plus i love her hair! if you want to see a post i've done on shenae grimes click here.

threadsence - my little wishes

we meet again.
so i've finally mastered the art of relaxing after all of my exams are now finished. i'm now flicking through some vintage and indie inspired clothes websites as i always get inspiration from them. and i came across 'threadsence' 

just to let you know i have not been asked to write this or endorse anything i am not affiliated with this ban at all!

this website is so indie looking but also fresh looking which i love - but what i love even more is their clothes - naturally. for me my style is typically 'indie' i love the flowy casual but fancy look and i think i do honestly pull it off pretty well. i have the hair for it- just about ( still not fully content ) . What i've wored out over the years is the prints and colour i love to wear. this was proved yesterday when i expanded my wardrobe - added another rail and generally renovated the place. and there was a real trend on what i like - tan mustard yellow and black and some dark grey + navy. for print wise i go for snake skin effect and leopard - but i promise the ones i pick doesn't look slag-ish - so don't panic!

anyway bak to threadsence. i was so exited when i was looking through their clothes as i found some beauts- here they are :) I will include direct links to the items so you can get further information if you like the ones i like .

what the website says 

'Sheer, taupe colored, foxtail printed crop top with a relaxed fit. Open ribbon back detailing. '

 i love the colour and the style of this - i've never seen anything like it with this gorgeous back bow detail either!

what the website says

'Aztec printed tank top in tan and black. Sides slightly flare out towards the fringed hem. Relaxed fit.'

loving this so much - love the colours on the aztec print - can't beat a good mustard yellow/tan and black duo. The fringing is what makes t this season - don't be put off by it it will honestly set the rest of the look off for you!

what the website says

' Semi-sheer rust coloured button up top with a racerback-like cutout from behind. Longer length in the back as well to give it a unique and relaxed look. '

what's not to love about this top :
Great colour - check
great cut - check
a staple piece for any season - CHECK

Love this so much as it's so versatile and would compliment pretty much any trouser or shorts you wear!

what the website says

'Brass charm necklace with an engraved detailed key, fabric bow, orange gem, and more small charms. Includes orange gem dangling earrings.'

How charming is this necklace ? Its got everything i look for in a necklace - intricate detail , hint of colour , and last but not least the unique factor. no wonder this beauty was out of stock when i found it! But what i found out on threadsence is that they have n e-mail option which will tell you when the item you like is back in stock so you don't have to miss out on any beautiful pieces they sell - very clever indeed.

what the website says

'Nude colored sheer tights with "hansel from basel bon voyage!" in black stitching along repeated along the back side with a small sailboat.'

Usually i really don't like things like this but i don't know why but i love these maybe its because they're so simple and unique and honestly not too much. But whats even greater about these is that the writing is along the center which will make your legs appear thinner - marvellous.

So i could keep reeling off more items to my harts content but i don't want to bore you. but these are the key items on their website i love and they do truly live up to their statement - ' a unique and relaxed look'

What do you like from their website - and what do you think of my choices - let me know in a comment below :)

Until Next Time - follow my'deary if you got this far :)

Style Steal : Rose Byrne


a style hottie if you ask me who is currently waltzing over our screens in the movie 'bridesmaids' which was released on 22nd June. I've actually been looking forward for that movie to be released and hopefully i will go and see it with the bestfriend Aimee very shortly.I cant wait to see the film as Rose plays Helen who battles Annie and she truly believes she should be the maid-of-honour for her friends weddings. Got to love a girl with a bit of determination.Anyway back to the point Rose Byrne has always been a true style icon to me as she always manages to look smart and sophisticated whatever the role or haircut she has had. 

What role i mainly recognised her is from 'Insidious' horror movie - which to me was a nighmare'ish film which in-fact did give me an odd nightmare of my own - thanks weird producers for creating a sick movie designed to haunt the audience - good going on your behalf , it worked.

Some of you may recognise her from the roles she has played in 'X-men First Class ' here is a shot form the movie. She seems to just adapt to any role she has been given and that is what inspires me about her.
What makes me love her evenmore is that she is in-fact from Sydney Australia and i just love australian people , i've always got on with them my closest friends - neighbours are originally from there. i dont know maybe its their voice and laid-back attitude. i dont know can't place my finger on it exactly.

 As you can see from the following photos she has varied her hairstyle quite a bit and my personally favourite you can probably guess is the waved hair- stunning. Although she currently has a fringe i think not alot of people can actually rock it - but she does pull it off quite well although i think i prefer her with no fringe and simple mid length hair , plus it would be more of a benefit to her and she could pull off a variety of clothing styles . never the less she seems to know what she wants when see was at the Tommy Hilfiger's A/W 2011 show .  She traded in her cream dress for more suiting blouse and trousers - a very smart choice by her indeed.
 I LOVE her blouse in this picture and her make-up give her an ample enough of warmth for her to carry the look to her maximum potential.

Here she is at the premiere of X-men First Class . Doesn't she look stunning? I'm in absolute awe with her dress i love everything about it ; the lace , the colour , the cut - you name it i love it EXCEPT that plain fact - its not mine , damn you designers - high street hurry up and make me an alternative - pronto! If you know of any dresses similar to this tap me an answer in the comment s to this post-  i'd love you forever *if thats a good thing i don't know*

So 2011 has really been her year she hit three show stopping movies in three moths and each movie couldnt be anymore different. To me this shows how versatile she is and personally how can get to work  but still find the time to look fabulous!

She has recently been in in-style magazine and i had a flick-through her looks and what she had to say - she seems to know what she likes and has such a french day-to-day style . This is reinforced with her favourite designers and stores Zadig & Voltaire and APC. Here she is in this particular shot her rocking the latest trend and she fits it to a tee- much rather a dress actually. I adore the colour of the maxi and i'm looking for a perfect loose tee in this colour to throw over other shirts to give the perfect chic edge. The floppy hat just accentuates her very slender figure and sculpts her that little bit extra which screams 'french fever' which is her style all over.

So do you like Rose Byrne - let me know . . .

Can i have a scoop of pastel sorbet?

hi people.
once again a trend that never seem to tire out is the pastel sorbet colours - i've seen it pretty much all of my life and nothing really has changed with it. IT stays the same priceless colours every years with maybe i a slightly different hue or just cut into a different shape or the classic made into a different item - a scarf not a clutch!

So i have picked out some of the coolest celebs wearing the trend for you to have a nosey at.

Ashley Olsen - what a beaut' wearing a sorbet mustard jumper to chill the timeless look even-more topped with a over the shoulder black bag and a waterproof tied around the waist - thats one way to be prepared for british weather!

Kim Kardashian looking simply classic in a nude dress with cream accents carried out fully all the way to the shoes - a classic chilled treat which will never fade throughout the era's. A staple to add to your wardrobe for all skin-tones and hair colours!

Lilly Allen looking errrm not great if i'm honest - but whatever floats your boat i think they say!The dress doesnt flatter her figure and quite frankly make sit appear worse than it is .But by the lyrics of Miley Cyrus 'everyone makes mistakes , everyone has those days' - and yes i DID just quote her but suprisingly i'm okay with that!
The dress is a common example of a pink sorbet which always re-occurs from ascot to red carpet. grab one if your the playful type or leave it if you want a more sophisticated edge.
.    .    .
The one which melts my sorbet is Emma Green in the Baby Blue dress by Preen.  It is the *perfect* colour for her in both hair colour but also in her skin tone. Whilst we are on hair - i am loving her hair the fringe isn't too much and subtly adds a subdued edge to her character plus that colour - o.m.g i want it sooo much . 

She knows exactly how to top the colour of her dress off also with her balanced cool toned makeup. With minimal eye makeup with a black eyeliner rim to accentuate her light ice blue eyes. Polished off with a striking fushia lip to give the look her signature edge whilst adding a central point to her look.

I personally like the pastel look and i like endorsing it into my causal look via a layered shirt or accents in my jewellery but i could never pull off a whole look make of them due to my rockability edge.

So there we go that is how the celebrities rock the pastel sorbet look and how this look will quite literally will never chill out - sorry for the pun.

Do you like the pastel trend or not - let me know

field fantasy

another look i have crated on polyvore inspired by the surprisingly good weather in the UK at them moment. we currently have a heat wave *hurray* and i'm currently lapping up all the sun i can possibly get as you are probably aware britain is known for its prudent grey drizzle and hungover clouds - but today there is none in sight - marvellous!

please if you like this blog please follow - it would mean alot
onto the look...
so this look has a hint of floral to it via the shorts which to me just adds that print to make it light and airy perfect for spring and summer. this look is free flowing with the loose blouse and unrestricted footware topped off with a classy Pauls boutique bag which i have got an amazing dupe for actually from primark has the charms and everything and worth the cost of only £9.00 . But i couldnt find it on polyvore so i had to place the Pauls Boutique version on there.

Another trend i personally love is placing a lace or a silk scarf onto your handbag just looks stunning plus you have easy access to it if you want to put it on - simple but yet so effective.

Item List:

Top- Topshop £34.00
Shorts - Topshop £32.00
Sandals - Topshop £25.00
Scarf - Warehouse £22.00
Earrings - Topshop £6.50
Bag -Pauls Boutique £61.00
Necklace - Topshop £6.25

So would you wear this look - let me know
