It’s still snowing here! Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing to be honest – yes it looks lovely, but it’s so cold and annoying when you’re trying to get things done. Anyway, it’s definitely a beautiful backdrop to outfit photos! I’m sorry I’m so wrapped up here but I’m so scared of the cold (I blame the Chinese genes) and it is freeeezing at the moment, so I kept myself warm in these pictures with my trusty panda hat, favourite new coat from Hollister and cargo trousers from Maison Scotch I got in the ASOS sale. The stars are so cute, and they look like little snowflakes here.

Another designer that does casual boyish cool so well. I am in love with all these pieces in the above A.Y. Not Dead looks. How awesome are those two-toned red leather trousers, that white satiny jumpsuit, the silver jumper, that white leather jacket, the – no, I just love them all equally. And the shoes are excellent too. That’s some awesome H2T styling right there.

House of Dereon by Beyonce and Tina Knowles

House of Dereon - Beyonce and Tina Knowlessource: http://www.houseofdereon.com/

Well I’ll hold my hands up right now and say I’m really not a Beyonce sort of woman. I just don’t have that swagger, that too-sexy curvaceousness, that24/7 glamour that she projects. So I definitely was not expecting the new collection from House of Dereon, her clothing line made in collaboration with mum Tina Knowles, to be my sort of thing.

Having now launched at Selfridges, I can now safely say that I was right. It’s really not my sort of thing. A lot of shimmery snakeprints and zipped hoody pieces, it’s pretty bold and bootilicious. However, a few of the pieces (featured above) are pretty cool and I’m already imagining how I’d work them into my own style. Suede high-waisted shorts? Yes please. Patterned leggings? Yes please. However, these are definitely nothing new or that original, so whether I’ll be popping out a few more pounds for something I could find on the high street is another question.

If you could have any celebrity design a clothing line, who would it be? I’m thinking Miranda Kerr or Blake Lively (as long as the latter has some sort of clevage-barometer in place. Yes we know you have great boobs, they look just as nice tucked away!)

Outfit: Wild Thing

Wild Thing Outfit

Wild Thing OutfitWild Thing Outfit

dress: Forever 21, waistcoat: ASOS, leggings: ASOS, shoes: Urban Outfitters, necklace (worn as bracelet): Bulgari

Well this post was timely. Fur waistcoat in the middle of the one week this year that is actually hot 😉 ! Anyway, this outfit is something that can take me from day to night, which is something I love as I’m often out all day and I don’t want to get chilly when it gets dark. This faux fur waistcoat is great as it’s warm but not too stuffy or hot, and I like having my arms unstifled by thick sleeves. As for the Urban Outfitters shoes, well they are killers! I definitely won’t be wearing them often, but I love securing the straps over leggings – a little trick to make your legs look longer, along with the massive heel of course!

Dress Up a Plain Top – Statement Necklaces and Scarves

I love a basic tee or strap top, but it can get a bit boring, so sometimes I dress mine up with statement necklaces and scarves. It gives some texture and detail to an otherwise plain outfit, and it’s such an easy look to wear. Above are some of my favourite statement neck looks. The designers are in order from top: Pilgrim, Tim Ryan, Nicole Fahri, We Are Owls.

I now want to move on to try statement earrings, having seen some amazing ones on ASOS that the models are rocking, but I’m afraid my teeny ears won’t be able to cope with their weight!

Digital Styling with Polyvore

Green notes, a dash of oriental and boxy shapesGreen notes, a dash of oriental and boxy shapes - items

Callum’s mega-busy with all sorts of stuff lately so I’m still waiting on him to edit the outfit photos and London Fashion Weekend coverage he’s done. I’m happy with the pics as they are but they’re going up on this blog under his name so he needs to be completely satisfied with them.

So whilst I’m waiting on those here’s some digital styling I did on Polyvore recently. This is what I’d wear if I was far more stylish than I actually am! The outfit was inspired by green notes, a dash of oriental and boxy shapes.

The Jumper

The jumperThe Jumper - Jewellery Details

jumper: French Connection, necklaces: Bulgari, Forever 21, Massimo Dutti

A few weeks ago I did a post about the perfect t-shirt. Well say hello to the jumper that goes with everything. This was a steal from French Connection during their summer sale – probably one of my favourite sales out of all the shops. I find it difficult to trawl through loads of jumbled clothing racks (er, sorry Topshop!), and so tend to do my sale shopping online, but FCUK sales are always well organised. This jumper was another one of those ‘got-to-have-it’ moments. The mix of silk, wool and cotton has given the fabric a really luxurious, soft-knit feel without being itchy or shapeless. The colour is great too – a deep, almost brownish charcoal-grey that looks great against bright jewellery like these necklaces. It’s such an amazing piece, I have to force myself not to wear it all the time!

Designer Crush: Burberry Prorsum

Burberry Prorsum Burberry Prorsum Burberry Prorsum Burberry Prorsum source: http://uk.burberry.com/

Forget Burberry London. Burberry Prorsum is where it’s at. More edgy, more inspired, more forward thinking (in my humble opinion). Out of the AW11 collection, their coats are the pieces to watch. If I only wore one coat for the rest of my life it would be the drop waist duffle trench jacket (last pictures). Coats just don’t get better than that. I’d wear it over a tiny dress, black tights and some coloured boots like these Dr Martins. Every single day.

On a different note, their SS12 show at LFW shocked many people with its collection of knits – have a look at it here. Very strange as all the other designers stayed true to the season with pastel colours, floaty textures and lighthearted prints. Oh well. Even if it is a bit weird I still love the collection. Plus, it would be perfectly to fine to wear in SS here in the UK since we pretty much experience winter all year round!

Aimee Song from Song of Style Polyvore Set

Aimee Song from Song of Style Polyvore SetMore blogger envy. Hope you don’t mind me sharing but whilst I’m waiting for the boyfriend to have free time to take some outfit pictures, here’s a great outfit from Song of Style. Changed the shoes a little as I’m just so in love with the fold on these Alexander McQueen boots but otherwise I love it all. Polyvore is so awesome, but so addictive. Be warned. It will eat you up.

Blogger Envy: Ebba Zingmark

Ebba Zingmark Ebba Zingmark Ebba Zingmark Ebba Zingmark Ebba Zingmark source: http://nyheter24.se/modette/ebbazingmark/

Uggggghhhh she’s just too gorgeous and too stylish. I both love and hate looking at her blog. Hate because it makes me think why can’t I have those clothes and why is my face not exactly like hers, but love because her outfits are a real inspiration. They’re on the right side of cutesy to not be too twee and I love their European flair. Can’t really pinpoint what it is about European countries such as Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Belgium and France but they have this aesthetic that runs through their fashion that I really like.

Blogger envy big time.
