My Wardrobe Favourites: Vivienne Westwood Red Label Skirt.

Red Label Hitched Skirt – £280, purchased from Vivienne Westwood Boutique, Newcastle, June 2008.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label hitched skirt with brown orb side button and signature lining. This is my favourite piece of Viv, but I’ve only worn it once – ever! So if there was a reasonable offer I may be willing to sell, as long as she was to go to a good home:)

Topshop AMELIE Boots Vs Gucci BABOUSHKA Boots.


My two favourites:) Amelie Topshop Boots and my Classic 2.55 Chanel Bag.

I wanted these Amelie boots for soooooooo long! I finally managed to get a pair that were on the last chance to buy section – size 3! Could not believe my luck! FATE. Absolute fate!

Anyway, I saw a graphic from last year Gucci Baboushka Campaign and saw a verrrrry similar pair of my Amelie ankle boots…


Gucci Baboushka Ankle Boots: RRP around: £980.00.



Topshop Amelie Boots, £75.00.

Obviously I’m going to be a little bit biased here, but I have to say, I think my boots are much much nicer than the original Gucci ones. The studs are way more subtle and sophisticated…

What do you think in the Topshop V’s Gucci war here?

Graduate Fashion Week, 2008.

Northumbria University were one of the top 5 Universities in the country to walk the Catwalk at this years Graduate Fashion Week. It’s nice to see my old University getting some recognition; it’s nice for people to be able to read my CV and actually know where/what Northumbria University is! AT LAST! rofl. 

I thought it was brilliant that Vogue.com even showcased Heather Reid’s (from Northumbria) capsule on their front page; see below image.


-A design by Heather Reid, Northumbria University. 

The event kicked off yesterday and will showcase a weeks worth of cool and very likely controversially edgy designs from the up and coming graduate talent. 

Vogue.com said, “Louise Simmonds (Northbrook College) drew on the drama of the Italian renaissance to create tumbling ruffled and pleated collars while florals inspired Hannah Townsend’s (Colchester School of Art) bloom festooned and very wearable dresses, and Emily Bell (Northumbria University) brought us the cutest seaside collection of homeware pieces entitled Squawk.”

How exciting! I can’t imagine how good it would feel to be mentioned by VOGUE! I’d dream of that. So a very well earned pat on the back goes to the above girls! Well Done!
