Got Baggage?

I have completely fallen in love with this gorgeous luggage by Sarah Williams. The pastel shades, unorthodox shapes and secret drawers have got me hooked. I think I would be far too cautious to actually take these away with me though (think bumbling luggage handlers). To see these with even the faintest scratch would break my heart a little, instead I think I could settle with having them as an extra decorative addition to my room! The pink/peach one is practically a mini wardrobe in its own right!

Mad for Madwell

Alexa Chung's collection for Madwell is due later this year, and I'd quite happily buy it all! The whole collection is very much inspired by Alexa's personal style (some are saying too much?) and at an apparently ridiculously affordable price it's sure to be a sell out with the Chungster brigade. It's nothing innovative but it's very wearable and I love the fact that many of the pieces are vintage inspired. After seeing the Rodarte and upcoming Zac Posen collection for Target, and now this, I think it's time for me to get over to the States!

Model of the Moment - Abbey Lee Kershaw

Trend: Sheepskin and Shearling

Ever since I saw Alexa working the Acne flying jacket I've been obsessed with sheepskin jackets. Anyone who knows me will know that I have been searching high and low for the perfect sheepskin jacket for months! Alas Spring is almost here and a bulky sheepskin addition to my wardrobe would not be wise for the warmer months. Just when I'd given up all hope though, Fashion Week rolls around and to my great delight sheepskin is everywhere! I'm already excited for A/W 10 where I plan to buy sheepskin goods in their dozens....I may have to draw the line though at the Topshop Unique sheepskin eyebrows. That would just be overkill.

Back To School

Thanks to Alexander Wang, the side plait is officially cool again for those over the age of 9. And I think this is such a cute trend for Spring/Summer! Team it with super short floral dresses, a pop of pink creme blush and some bronzed limbs. For a great day-to-night look just take the plait out and comb through for super glamorous waves. No damaging heat appliances required!

Giving You More When You Only Want One

My absolute favourite song of the moment. Best listened to at the highest possible volume.
