Emma Watson at the London ‘leg’ of Harry Potter and Half Blood Prince Premiere.


This week saw the wordly anticipated premiere of the latest installment in the Harry Potter saga: Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince. Obviously, the worlds media had it’s attention on the young starlets themselves, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger). The young actors have grown up before our own eyes and the awful pap’s had their very own field-day at poor Emma’s expense.

Emma looked perfect in a vintage Ossie Clark printed dress that unfortunately did not agree with the dreadful British weather….

Emma couldn’t hide her low, low neckline from the camera’s glare. What a ‘boob’… oh dear, bad bad joke. Could not resist!

I do feel very sorry for Emma, and indeed the other young actors, the pressure from the media must be horrendous. Emma has been absolutely slated from all angles, but hey, at least she wore sensible none offensive underwear, which can’t be said for the majority of ‘celebrities’ these days. I think Emma has made the right decision to go to USA to study and have the proper teenage-hood she deserves (although, lets be honest, she shouldn’t have to flee).

Overall, I think the famous trio looked great at the premiere and have definitely earned their status’ as national treasures! ;o

Alice has died – I need a new bicycle.

ALICE R.I.P: May 2006- June 2009.

It’s official, my absolutely beautiful little vintage bicycle, also fondly known as Alice, has died. Her chain broke on  a trip to Tesco and because she is an antique no chain is replaceable. Of course I am beyond devastated as she is my pride and joy, however we have decided to keep her as an heirloom and I am now on the search for another bicycle. Alice is also not replaceable and never will be, but alas I must move on, and frankly I can’t afford TFL’s ridic prices, nor can I tolerate their lack of actual transporting. Therefore cycle power it is!

I’m after a little shopper – Alice, to be honest, was a little too big for me, hence why I fell off (I couldn’t touch the floor when I was sat on the saddle), something like the below would be perfect! I’ve got the basket off Alice, so having a basket on the front isn’t a complete necessity; nor is colour because I’m likely to spray paint the new bicycle gold 😀

I can collect from London (and surrounding areas) and can pay cash on collection or you could even have a listing on eBay and I can pay via Paypal and have you send it via courier – whatever is easiest 🙂

These boots are made for walking and that’s just what they’ll do…


Yesterday we went ‘holiday clothes shopping’, yet I walked away with these amazing holiday-not-so-much boots! I purchased these beauts from Rokit on Brick Lane, after failing to find some sandals in either Blondie or Absolute Vintage. Also, notice the green pen marks! Must mean that their a sample! Amazing. I love them even more for it! It means they’re completely unique and individual! AND they fit like an absolute glove! 😀

If you know who made these into production do let me know! Unless of course they were never made and I have the original one-off!

London Fashion Week Round-Up: DAY FOUR.



London Fashion Week A/W 2009.

DAY FOUR: Monday 23rd February 2009.

So today saw the catwalk shows of Giles, Ossie Clark, Julien Macdonald, Luella, Erdem, Jasper Conran, Marios Schwab, Paul Smith and Louise Goldin… and does Jourdan Dunn just walk for EVERYONE now? She definitely is in massive demand! And why not?! Good on her I say!


Ossie Clark.

It was love at first sight with Ossie Clark‘s A/W offering. Keeping to the Ossie Clark signature 60s/70s style Avsh Alom Gur (Creative Director) has given, what I feel, the nicest, most wearable and ‘lovliest’ collection of the season. It’s a very “me” collection. I found it very difficult to whittle down all the images to the ones above, but I feel the ones above best represent the Autumn/Winter trend. Towards the end of the showcase we see a rather ‘bridal’ inspired few items which really intrigued me. Particularly love the last image above; this would just look wonderful worn by a modern bride wanting a vintage inspired gown. The collection utilises soft uncomplicated prints adorned onto pussy bow dresses and bell-bottomed jumpsuits. Think it’s safe to safe thick white tights are definitely going to be a big trend for A/W. Great! Love my white tights! Again, burnt orange is the flavour of the season with the colour splashed onto feminine blouses and caped coats. The rest of the colour palette looks at slatey blues, mustard and burgundy.

GILES.

I was left quite disappointed with the Giles Deacon collection. I really thought it would have been a more ‘wearable’ and a more commercial collection to coincide with the looming recession. Clearly he wanted to go the other way, and again, fight against the recession by producing a very art influenced A/W showcase. I cannot help but think this collection is inspired by 80’s Vogue (see the head gear) and creatures from beneath the sea however? Please do correct me if I’m wrong though! The last two images (above) are very reminiscent of a particular fish – a blow fish! Strange? Suppose not considering it is Giles, afterall. The big ‘rocket’ costume thing? What is that about? I mean, there is quirky, and plain stupid. C’mon Giles! There were one or two garments which were nice, and I do take a fancy to the ‘butterfly’ print seen on trousers and flowing dresses. But unfortunately, I have to say, thats were my ‘fancy’ ended.

Luella.

I quite enjoyed Luella‘s showcase. Enjoyed seeing Pixie Geldof walk confidently; it’s so refreshing to see a ‘normal’ sized non-model walk the catwalk. She looked really good! The collection was half military inspired with tweed and studding, and the usual Luella Tee’s cropped up. There were some opulent gold fabrics also used, but my favourite pieces were the more heritage fabrics and I loved the boyfriend blazer coat (first image). Also, absolutely adored the whole outfit which I’ve highlighed above. Love love love the tweed panelled skirt with t-shirt combo and puffer jacket to finish. Again, another ‘me’ outfit. Luella is doing so well, and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the stock hit stores shortly!

Our Docklands Apartment :)


Now that we’re looking for a new place, clearly it is only apt to share with you the current abode of which we have the pleasure of living in:)

When we decided to move to London last year, we also decided to finally get our own furniture! Which, to be honest, is quite a big thing! After renting for the last five years in furnished places we were desperate to get our own furniture and FINALLY be able to make our own mark on a place, really make it OUR OWN, and give it a personality. We had collected a few bits and pieces over the years, but its the big things like a bed and matress, coffee table, dining table and chairs we needed. So we drew up a massive list and off to IKEA we went…

Still getting it all together mind!
