Miu Miu S/S 10

I just can't get enough of this collection right now, it was just everything I associate with Miu Miu - girlish but not too cute, great accessories and some interesting party dresses all styled in the most interesting ways.

I love the new length of trouser Miu Miu used too, it's not too high on the waist but will be a great summer wardrobe staple.

I can't wait to see how some of the closing dresses are going to be styled in the months to come, if anything the back of the dress was more intricate and detailed than the front.


The shoes are equally amazing. Platform flowery prints really shouldn't work, but they do:

What's in a dress?

Once again I'm finding myself dreaming of divine dresses, but this time it's for award season. It may be a little premature, but the Oscar film season is just about upon us. I'm already looking forward to the new year and the Golden Globes/Oscars and myriad award seasons red carpets. I'm sure I'm not the only one who imagines exactly what dresses they'd select, and especially what designers they'd love to represent who just don't get enough love. With university work winding down I keep finding myself on style.com working my way back through the collections, and here's some of the dresses I just keep coming back to:

(L-R: Bottega Veneta, Bottega Veneta, Alberta Ferretti, Alberta Ferretti, Giambattista Valli, Sophia Kokosalaki, Hussein Chalayan, Fendi, Gianfranco Ferré , Donna Karan, Vera Wang & Calvin Klein)

Phi Fall 09.10

Now that the winter is fully upon us poor UK bloggers I really need to start considering warm winter wear. It's not the sort of thing you can look to celebrities for inspiration because they are ferried around in lovely warm SUV's and don't have to walk anywhere in the cold. I still haven't found many great winter outfits, it seems so very pointless to then throw a big coat over it (even if it is a Jil Sander for Uniqlo coat), don't you think? But Phi Fall 09.10 is definitely the direction I would like to be heading in.

It's all very Rihanna on a cold night out. So much black, leather, fur and zippers. It's just such simple perfection, and fairly easy to do on a smaller budget. Just love this look for winter.
