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:)

London Fashion Week Round-up: DAY TWO.


London Fashion Week A/W 2009.

DAY TWO: Saturday 21st February 2009.

Today is the day I was looking forward to seeing… a few of my favourite designers were showcasing their A/W collections; including, Vivienne Westwood (especially!), Peter Jensen, UNIQUE by Topshop. What I am beginning to notice is the fact a lot of designers are playing their collections very ‘safe’. This is a direct result of the current economic climate; people are wanting to spend their money on much more hardwearing, simple pieces that will become wardrobe staples, rather than a one-off ‘party piece’.


Vivienne Westwood: RED LABEL.


-Daisy Lowe walks for Vivienne Westwood.

At first, I thought Vivienne Westwood had kept it a little too ‘safe’ with her Red Label A/W 09 collection; but after looking over at the photographs again, I absolutely LOVE it and cannot wait for it to hit stores. Theres lots of Viv’s signature textiles in there (tartan, harlequin, tweed, wool) and the signature shapes and forms. She hints back at the pirate era and heritage for this, very cosy, looking new collection. Daisy Lowe and Alice Dellal were amongst her wonderful models to walk the A/W 09 collection.

UNIQUE by Topshop.


UNIQUE looks to the future for their A/W collection. Not terribly sure how wearable this actually is; regardless of this, its definitely grabs your attention! The clothes are very art inspired with lots of decadent detail; I just cant wait to see the prices for this collection to be honest. A few hit and miss prints mixed with sequins and black dominates. The collection screams attitude, rave and technology as we’re faced with boiler suits, oversized hoods and quirky tailoring.

Margaret Howell’s A/W collection has left me a little confused… although, indeed, it is a lovely simple collection, it is very ‘light’, in the sense, that I feel it looks alot more like a S/S collection. Lots of shorts and sleeveless garments, not terribly practical for winter! The staple of the collection is however, knee high socks, a rather playful and endearing addition to the collection I thought. Some really nice tailoring and lovely ‘cruise’ pieces. A really nice colour palette of greys, white, slate, light blue. Overall, I really enjoyed this collection, despite the lack of thought for the English Weather!

Ms AS. Back A/W 09 collection is just beautiful. Imagine a spell-binding mix between BeetleJuice (the film!), Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas, all juggled up with a Wedding and then thrown backwards through the darkest night. The models looked majestic with pale white faces and white stockinged legs. Feathers play a key focus to the collection as well as Hallows Eve. Oversized knits are emblazoned with BOO! and illustrations, while the more sophisticated end of the collection boasts high waisted carrot trousers and complicated sheer blouses. Ann-Sofie is definitely one to watch for 2009!

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!

What is iOffer.com?


Just wondering if anyone (pref UK based!) has used ioffer.com? How does it compare to the likes of eBay??

How are you protected via Paypal? Clearly, if I was to buy anything, I’d only ever use Paypal regardless….

There’s so many things I want to buuuuuuuuy!

S/S 09 Vivienne Westwood Leather Goods… Love or Loathe?


Well S/S 09 is now well and truly upon us, and just before Christmas Vivienne Westwood launched the new style leather goods. I’m completely unsure about the new leather thrown onto the already classic handbags and small leather goods… so I thought I’d ask you what your thoughts were on the strange bevelled leather effect!

Also, what do you think of the new signature gold plaque inside the leather lining?
