My New Favourite Design House: HALSTON HERITAGE.


Legendary American label Halston launched its hip diffusion line in 2009, and has since garnered a cult following amongst style-setters like Sarah Jessica Parker and Chloë Sevigny. The epitome of Studio 54 glamour, Halston Heritage evokes the brand’s timeless appeal reinventing archive pieces into effortlessly elegant silhouettes. Do like the original high-living Halstonettes, Bianca Jagger and Anjelica Huston and get retro-chic in asymmetric jersey dresses paired with oversized totes and clutches in silver, orange and cerulean.

James literally bought this XBOX 360 Arcade console for the latest and greatest Grand Theft Auto release. He also bought Grand Theft Auto seperately. He’s selling both together as a neat package on eBay. He has completed GTA and subsequently has no need for this XBOX now (we’re not console players, apart from the Wii, but that doesn’t count!) So yeah, its ACTUALLY brand new!!

So please please PLEASE help us in our funding for our big bad move to the big bad smoke!

Clearly this package is well sought after, still! So get you bidding guns at the ready! [Please pass on the details of this auction to your family/friends/related parties! Thanks!]

Kate Moss for TOPSHOP: The Launch, Today, Tuesday 18th March.


Since my previous post on the range, Here , the range has launched….

I didn’t manage to have a look at the range, DESPITE being at work all day today – but I have to say, its realllly disappointing from looking at the TOPSHOP.com website.

The preview image showed the ‘Top Five’ items…

I really liked the look of the embroidered dress, 2nd left. But the dress looks really shapeless and much whiter on the website. I would have preferred it to look like the above image really, it looks much more vintage-y and quirky. The dress below looks rather like a dress from H&M to be honest, and with that in mind, theres no justification for the £60.00 pricetag.

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP Embroidered Tunic Dress, £60.00.
As far as I’m aware this tunic dress didn’t even come into stores this morning;I have a feeling it’s going to be a repeat of the Spotty One-Shoulder Dress from the very first collection… where we only got a few sizes in each colour, and they leapt from the shopfloor as fast as they came in, leaving everyone sitting on eBay for hours on end!

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, Daisy Print Tea Dress, £60.00

As for this dress, as always, it looks wonderful on Kate, and especially so in Ibizan sunshine! But as before, it looks cheap and not work 60notes. Infact, I’d go as far as to liken it to Primark!

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, Yellow 50s Style Dress, £45.00.

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, Aqua 50s Style Dress, £45.00

Now this dress I REALLY like and hope its in work tomorrow still. I’m torn between the Aqua and the Yellow though! Which to go for! They’re both lovely and perfect for a Summer Wedding I’m attending! I can’t decide at all, I don’t have a single dress thats Yellow, or Aqua, so I need an informed decision I think…

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, “IBIZA” Sandal, £25.00

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, “IBIZA” Sandal, £25.00

These sandals are really good value for £25.00, they’re 100% leather and will go with everything. At least theyre on par with Topshop anyway.

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, ‘Top Hat Tee’, £20.00


-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, Spotty Bandeau Dress, £150.00

Yes you read right, £150.00 for the above dress! I don’t understand why, apart from it probably being from her Limited Collection (around 250 pieces are made and that is it… each piece is numbered). But STILL. I can guarantee that ASOS.com will have a copy in the next couple of weeks….

I’m quite attracted to this print, for some reason… I’d probably wear this t-shirt if not for the low cut neck line, I much prefer round higher collars.

I shall indeed have a good look at the collection tomorrow in ‘real life’ and hopefully my doubts will be reversed! But as a customer be aware you are limited to purchases through the range; one item, in one size, from each category. In other words, you can only get one dress for example, in one size; this is to reduce the amount of items ending up on eBay for instance, and to be fair to all customers, considering the limited amount of sizes available in stores.

The Americana “Star Print” trend.



As you’ve probably seen, the new print trend on the street is the americana style stars; upon dark backgrounds. Kate Moss wowed the crowds and her public at her 34th birthday last month in Chanel’s ensemble. Her hair (most probably styled by her personal stylist, James Brown) was reminiscent of our dear Carrie Bradshaws curls. Kate also proved herself to be the star of the show with the star print theme following through to her face makeup. Moss, glamorously stepped out of her taxi in a beautiful faux fur coat and wedged heels and gracefully stepped into her party held at London’s fantabulous PUNK nightclub in SoHo; this is where Smash and Grab is held by the Queens of Noize.

However, this isn’t the first time the Chanel outfit has been out on display, Claudia Shiffer (below), was the first to wear it for a magazine shoot last year.

-Alexa Chung also wears Chanel, NME Awards (?)

So where can you purchase some star print to begin your way with the new trend this season? Well as always, ASOS.com is my first point of call online – its cheap as chips, and the quality is excellent!

-Star Print Tea Dress, £38.

Just like the print as seen on Kate Moss!

-ASOS Petite Star Print Tea Dress, £30.

I really think this print is similar to the ‘Clover Print Dress’, found in Kate Moss’s last collection from TOPSHOP.

-Alexander McQueen Lurex Star Intersia Knit CardiStar Print Jumper, £229.00

I absolutely adore this retro inspired jumper, I think it looks brilliant teamed with some simple skinny fit jeans! I think it’s a great idea from ASOS to provide a ‘Premium’ service also; other designers include, TWENTY8TWELVE, Chloe, Betsey Johnson, Christian Dior, PPQ and YSL just to name a few!

And not to leave the men out…

-Mens Star Print Tee, By Revolution, £30.

-Star Print Bandana, £5.
