Mulberry Del Rey

After being introduced to the talented Miss Del Rey through a fabulous friend of mine, she can do no wrong in my eyes. I Love Her! Her album is unquestionably good and despite several shaky public performances (show me a singer that hasnt had one) her album confirmed her true talent, for me at least! Her album met mixed reviews, and she has since said she has yet to confirm if she'll record another (my heart breaks) her fashion credentials this week have however been confirmed! Taking seat front row at the Mulberry Show this London Fashion Week, clutching a limited edition bag named after her.

Is there a higher honour??
For my 21st I was lucky enough to receive a Mulberry handbag, I count this as one of the proudest moments in my life (I'm a fashion student, so shoot me) so I know to the full extent how exciting it is to own a Mulberry. But one named after you! A whole new level of excitement. I very much love the classic shape, which is why I have a Bayswater and also a reason why I love the new Del Rey bag. Its classic with a twist or as the important people at Mulberry put it...

"Lana has mastered the style of Old Hollywood, mixing it with an edgy sense of fun. This contrast appeals to us: we love mixing eclectic references with classic details in the way that Lana does. The Del Rey bag is infused with this idea, combined with the easy sensibility and English common-sense practicality of our heritage icons."

However they put it, I'm sold, granted I don't love it as much as I love the classic Bayswater, but its definitely in my top three, (the other is the Hobo bag in case you wondered.) So Congrats Lana on this amazing honour and congrats Mulberry on one of the best Front Rows this Fashion Week.

Lust of the Week

After receiving my Rose Gold Michael Kors Watch for Christmas, I've been wanting to add more Rose Gold pieces to my jewellery collection, I've been a fan of the jewellery designer Monica Vinader for sometime now and this weeks Lust goes to her Rose Gold Friendship bracelet, its beautiful, however there is 30 different variations, available in Rose Gold, Gold and Silver, so it would be rude to just get one, when I could get loads and stack them! Here's three I'm lusting after...
Rose Gold - Calm - £115

Silver - Peace - £85

Gold - Luck - £95

Michael Kors Fall 2012

Michael Kors has to be one of my favourite designers and his fall collection showcased this month in New York Fashion Week cemented his place in my top 5 designers.
I LOVE everything about this collection especially the knitted bodies (very D&G 2010 - my favourite catwalk collection of all time, to date.) I Love the rustic-luxe cabin aspect of the collection fur trimming everywhere, yet glamorous with the nod to the roaring 20's with the drop waists and embellished dresses, with a sprinkle of 90's grunge thrown in with hard lace up boots. The man is a fashion god and I want NEED every piece of this collection.

These are a few of my favourite looks....

What do you think? Love? Hate? Need? Want?

Burberry S/S 2012 Campaign

How Hot is this Advert?

And how cute is this Advert?

Love Burberry and Love this Campaign!

Best. Ever.

Dior Spring Couture

I was convinced I'd posted this weeks ago (worst memory ever) I know its a bit dated now, but the dresses are too pretty not to post!

How Beautiful are these dresses from the Dior Spring Couture Show? I'm a sucker for anything girly and I love the fact that the dresses are in shades of black and grey not typically girly colours, they'll fit in my wardrobe colour scheme perfectly, just the price tag now to figure out...

Victoria Beckham

Sure I'm not blind, I can appreciate this fine specimen of a man


I would much rather talk fashion over a coffee with his wife!

I have been a huge fan of Victoria Beckham since her Spice Girl days however since her image over haul to fashion designer and Icon my love for her has grown from strength to strength. Her fashion collections never fail to impress or inspire me, she has a dreamy husband and perfect children. What's not to love??
Since the birth of baby Harper Seven, my obsession with her has grown, Victoria's flawless and now theirs another little style icon in the making! At this New York Fashion Week, she showcased her eighth collection for her own label which met rave reviews and the best front row of any fashion show, Anna Wintour and David Beckham! 

The designs as always were beautiful, the 22 piece collection was inspired by her day to day life her sons football jerseys, the hats her husband wears, all mixed up with military detailing. Here's a few of my favourite pieces...

However the true star of the show was baby Harper Seven, the adorable baby made her New York Fashion week debut on her daddy's arm. Adorable.

 Handbags have been one of the most successful pieces in her collection since she added handbags to her line back in 2010. This show she added a special addition to her handbag range, the Harper! Clearly in awe of her youngest she named the two front pocketed bag after the latest edition to her family.
