Black Military Boots, £165, AllSaints
Rhianna was papped wearing the AllSaints Military Boots this week. Make no mistake, these are the real (AllSaints) McCoy. Accept no immitations (especially from Topshop or Office, for I will tear my hair out and you will waste you hard earned cash!).
These boots are best worn on their second or even third (from top) lace hole – this gives the boot a more slouchy style.

This week saw the publication of the ‘top 100’ in Drapers magazine. The top 100 looks at the biggest and most influential people/brands/retailers in fashion over the past year. Very proudly I can say that Drapers voted AllSaints NUMBER ONE!
Since summer this year, AllSaints have launched a fully transactional US Site with a DC in New Jersey, meaning all US sales are now in dollars and are shipped within the US. Furthermore to the Atlantic-expansion, a concession began the store roll-out within Bloomingdales New York, followed by L.A Robertson and Miami is very close to opening. In the new year there will be a flagship in New York and Boston will follow. Additional language sites have made shopping even easier for French, Italian, German and Spanish speakers.
It’s all very exciting and very well deserved. Well done to all involved atAllSaints; long may it continue!

I’m currently obsessing over the classic Gucci chain print! I got this red scarf about 5 years ago, I brought it out from the back of my wardrobe after seeing Cheryl Cole on the XFactor wearing the similar McQueen rope print top (below)
