mini haul

Last week my friend kindly offered me this brown leather Chloé handbag and the Prada wallet below, because she knows what a fashion fanatic i am, and how could i say no :)

Retail Therapy:

Calvin Klein liquid liner, Big Lash mascara, VoV sparkle nail polish

Equip sunglasses

Factorie New York top [my favourite city in the world]

Just some photos of the damage i've done to my wallet lately.
This weekend has been 28 degrees on Saturday and 31 degrees today! It really feels like Summer and i would currently be lying on the beach soaking up the sun or in my pool outside if I didn't have this English assignment due Monday.

leighton meester: head to toe mcqueen

I love Leighton's ability to turn her fashion hand to styling the latest trends, and I'd kill for her wardrobe!

Leighton Meester at the premiere of her movie 'The Oranges' in Toronto, Canada.
She looked gorgeous in head-to-toe Alexander McQueen, wearing the white long-sleeved Broiderie Anglaise shirt and skirt from the Alexander McQueen Resort 2012 Collection. 
And did she stop there with the McQueen? Nope. The combination was adorned with a Cigar brown belt to cinch in the waist, Bone & Cigar gold accented white box clutch and Ocelot print curved heels, both by McQueen.

8th September, 2011 - Today is the official kickoff of New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 11/12! For all those wondering, NYFW is from the 8th-15th September. I know so many of my favourite bloggers who are in NYC right now for fashion week, and i'd just like to wish them all an amazing time, and I wish I could be there!
So Fashion Week traditionally begins with NYC then the list goes like this: London, Milan, Paris, Los Angeles, Japan.
Can't wait to waste countless hours on the internet and reading magazines keeping up with all of it!
Tonight is also the 3rd annual Vogue Fashion's Night Out, which is a worldwide after-hours shopping extravaganza, where shoppers can snap up amazing buys in tonnes of retail shops in the heart of their city. It lists the shops that are taking part in your city on the website, http://fashionsnightout.vogue.com.au/. But unfortunately i can't go this year because of other committments :( There's always next year!

It's the Peter Pan collar. They've been popping up everywhere for a while now, and the best thing is that they can be worn as bold or as subtle as you like. For some, wearing the detachable collar is as simple as layering it over an existing shirt for an unexpected contrast of colour and fabric. Others wear it like a  necklace buttoned up over a tank with a blazer thrown on top. Or of course, it may just come sewn onto the shirt you buy. I love how they give every outfit a clean, polished look. http://www.asos.com/ has gone absolutely insane for this trend, too!
And how could i not include three photos of the lovely Alexa Chung, she is the queen of collars afterall.

Here is my next Peter Pan collar purchase, the ASOS Leather Collar:

splash of colour

I got inspired by this tumblr - POSITIVITY to do this colour post. She started posting on tumblr in colour co-ordination a couple of months ago and I think it is extremely pleasing to the eye, however I don't think I would be able to do it! Anyway, here are some colourful photos to brighten up your day Xx
