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.

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.

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