'Last Friday Night'

The beautiful people at O.P.I have got me all of a fluster; just a lick of paint and I'm flaunting my Katy Perry alter-ego- well my nails are at least...

The Katy Perry for O.P.I collection comes in 5 sparkly sweet shades, (with a fierce cracking black topcoat that Im dying to get my claws on), and I'm lucky enough to give a test run to one of my favourite shades before it hits the stores in the New Year!

Like all O.P.I varnish, this stuff it TOUGH and built to last; it may seem thin at first, but a few rounds later and this glitteryglue is here for the long haul! Perfect! I've opted for 'Last Friday Night'; apparently Katy's Fridays reflect as much glamour as the Heart of the Ocean, and are packed full with enough glitter to feed a fairy for a lifetime...as this shade proves....




My eyes are actually permanently fixated on my nails, I don't even think the photos do the colour justice, its like staring into a pool of diamonds or some shit.
This collection just has to be everyones first purchase of 2011!! 
But up until then....festive finger tips with the O.P.I limited edition Burlesque range will do jussst fine!

Kimono Inspiration!





'La Geisha' in November's French Vogue is truly inspiring for the current edgy-Asian inspired trend. Think delicate Japanese style florals, wide kimono sleeves, silks, bold feminine colours and lashings of attitude to pull off this ulta-geisha look! Freja Beha's energy mixed with Terry Richardson's super seductive photography hits all the right spots!
Feast your eyes, Feed your Geisha.

Freja wears; Kyotokimono , Kimonoya, Givenchy, Miu Miu, Ralph Lauren

Feeling Floral?

Yeah, and frilly...



As we all know, by the time Spring'11 rocks around we're all gonna be in full 70's flow. It's going to be massive, smothering us all in vibrant prints, crochet knits, tassels, flairs and the brightest boldest most boho maxi's you can get your paws on. Take influence from the style circles that the likes of Chung and Moss move in, never failing to provide the rawest boho charm, and shake it up with a mix of dazzling studio 54 stylee glitter and glamour. However, until i find my perfect flairs and my pleated maxi skirts, I'm hung up completely on Christian Diors SS11 couture collection...turning his models into a blooming marvelous array of outlandish marching flowers. Feeling inspired by the bold acts of colour and structured feminine shapes, Im whipping out loud floral bloomers and pink-orchid frills...just to brighten up London's grey skies. 

Both blouse & bloomers are Vintage...Amazing purple lipstick, limited edition by M.A.C

One Starry Night in East London...

...The air was crisp and everything sparkled!

In particular, skirts and hair bows adorned with gold lace and glitter! Feeling inspired by the weeks fabulous news; engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton (could anything else have actually  happened this week?!?), I set out to dress like a princess, whilst the rest of the world ponder their own engagement.  

Princess Belle, (yes, Disney princess), does dainty and delightful like no other. I'm whipping out the golden floaty flouncy skirts for the whole next week in total tribute.

Tiny Winter Tartan & Top Heavy Hair.

It's cold. It's really really cold. Already taking inspiration from Vivienne Westwood's AW10 collection with the tiny tartan number (crimson red rather than hot pink, sadly), teaming it with textured romantic ruffled shirts and high as the sky updo, all i need now is some heavy hearty knits...and some avant-garde yet completely cosy boots....
Maybe something like these would be PERFECT....
Vivienne Westwood, Shearling Lined Pirate Boots.
£480, available at Urban Outfitters!

Guess I know what's on my Christmas wish list. If I can wait that long.

Peace Out! Wrap Up! xo

EspaƱol

My last slice of summer-pie!

There's something vivacious in the air out there, whilst feeling free and letting loose- beaming super sunkissed pins and draped in light floaty fabrics.







Most of all my little advocates.
