Work Magazine

Finding this magazine feels like an early Christmas present. I'm an avid reader of TheFashionSpot and have been for many years, and whilst browsing it the other day I found such a wonderful new(ish) magazine - Work magazine.

Isn't that such a striking cover? The cover star is model Tasha Tilberg, who isn't as regular on the runways as she used to be, but she she still pops up in only the coolest publications. Just looking at this cover is making me want to get a septum piercing.

There's not alot of information about the magazine but from what I can gather it's a quarterly based art/fashion magazine, this is issue number three. It's also prooving difficult to track down a copy, for all of you in LA you can pick up a copy at the Marc Jacobs bookstore on Melrose (as if you need an excuse to go down there anyway!). Otherwise, you can order online via the website. If you have a a spare five minutes head on over to the website, and have a browse through because I'm so excited to see a a magazine like this, with one of my favourite cover stars. I can't wait to see how this exciting project develops.

Jewellery fit for a superhero

This has to be coolest collaboration I've seen for ages. Noir Jewellery + DC Comics! I'm sure everyone has an inner comic book geek side to themselves. I, for one, love Batman. I have done since I was a little kid.
These suitably dark jewels will certainly stand out from all the Disney jewellery around at the moment, and it would be a definite talking point.

Bat Girl Dome Ring, $300

Catwoman claw earrings $235

Supergirl necklace $500

And my absolute favourite is the mini Gotham city ring, it would look amazing with a dramatic black cocktail dress

Gotham City Ring $225

Fly on over to to check out the full range!

All wrapped up

I'm literally snowed in. There's a foot of snow outside now, and as the UK have been unable to deal with it I've been spending a lot of time online (oh and baking snowflake cupcakes!). Two of my favourite editorials I've found today, I just had to share here:

Metal Magazine 21
Julia Nobis by Can Evgin

The next editorial is from Russh magazine, and I know I post about this magazine alot, but it's absolutely brilliant, and so worth tracking down. If you're in London you should be able to find it in Selfridges or RD Franks.
Russh Decemeber/January 2011
Cassi Van Den Dungen by Will Davidson

These editorials highlight how beautiful masculine, oversize clothes are on such feminine models with strong features. It's an interesting trend that's emerging in some of the indie magazines. I was pleasantly surprised to see it showcased on the red carpet by Leighton Meester:

She looks so sexy in this look, it's slightly disheveled which works and I like the flowing curled hair. I'm going to be copying these looks, just as soon as the snow disappears, because there is nothing attractive about having to wear ten sets of layers all the time.

Back to Black

Sorry for the terrible lack of posts! I'm trapped in dissertation madness right now, but very much enjoying it. I'm in such a classic mood right now, but I'm also stuck just wearing black all the time. Luckily, Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen have really perfected how to mix different fabrics whilst making all black still look fantastically modern and put together. They seem to really be in tune with their style right now, and I love how luxurious and wearable this look is:

Oh, and want a piece of The Olsens style? Head on over to, where you can view Elizabeth & James online, and for perfect minimalism head over to to view the Olsens luxury label The Row.

Fur Sure

There's practically snow on the ground in England right now, it's that cold. So of course my thoughts turn to fur coats, I own a vintage fox fur coat with huge shoulder pads but I love seeing the way fur is styled. This editorial is from 1999 and published in US Harpers Bazaar starring Frankie Rayder (seriously, if you're not familiar with her work, check her out she's as sexy as Freja). I'm taking a trip to Budapest in December, and I'm fur hats and coats are going to be the only way to stay warm.

Something about Milan...

Frida Gustavsson at unusual source of inspiration.

There must be something strange in the champagne over at Milan fashion week, because my usual fvaourites; Jil Sander, Fendi & Prada were huge let downs for me. The biggest being Jil Sander, the shapes were unflattering even on the models and Anna Wintour spent the whole show tapping away at her Blackberry. For me, it's the most disspointing collection since Raf Simons joined the house.
So where did the great looks come from? I never though I'd say this but Roberto Cavalli and Dsquared2 are what I remember most about Milan. Believe me, it pains me to say this. Of course Bottega Veneta is never a let down, Alberta Feretti was stunning and Marni was wonderful.

(Dsquared S/S 11, Dsquared S/S 11, Bottega Veneta S/S 11, Bottega Veneta S/S 11, Maxmara S/S 11, Maxmara S/S 11, Roberto Cavalli S/S 11, Roberto Cavalli S/S 11.

I mean this Roberto Cavalli collection is just so...Shakira in the Whenever, Wherever video. Maybe after what feels like three weeks of minimalism at NY, London and parts of Milan I can find a Roberto Cavalli collection wildly fun. There's fringing! Sequins! Snake Print!. Another stand out is the wonderful make up, courtesy of the master, Pat McGrath. This has to be the most flattering and simple make up I've seen in Milan it made all the models look incredible:

I just can't help loving it, maybe my mind will change after seeing Paris.
