Alexa Chung wowed in her outfit on the red (well, blue actually) carpet last night at the British Fashion Awards, an ensemble well deserved of the winner of the British Style Award 'for an individual who embodies the spirit of London and is an international ambassador for London as a leading creative fashion capital'. I was loving her quirky Kitty shoes by Charlotte Olympia (sister of model Alice Dellal) winner of the Accessory Designer Award. And... if that wasn't enough her dress and clutch were by New Establishment Award winner, Christopher Kane..... This was definitely an award winning combination. Kitty velvet and leather shoes £545.00 from, dress and clutch Christopher Kane S/S '12 collection.

Spot the difference

Whilst admiring (or in some cases hating) the looks on the red carpet last night for the British Fashion Awards 2011, I couldn't help but notice the striking resemblance between a young British Actress and a Slovenian London based Accessories Designer. Can you spot the difference? Hayley Atwell right and left, Lara Bohinc centre.


Cosy. Sexy. Effortless.

I've long been waiting (4 weeks), hoping and dreaming for Whistles to bring out another great long sleeve, knee length fitted dress after falling in love with their gorgeous Grey Drop Needle Rib Maxi Dress last month. This fits the bill perfectly, plus I got lucky with 20% off. The St. Christopher's Place store was offering 20% off nearly everything, new lines, items already on special offer and sale items, some already at 70% off! At the till I got distracted by all the shiny gold jewellery and decided I needed a long pendant, it even has a working whistle charm on it! Daryl Stripe Column Dress £110.00 and Gold Flat Whistle Pendant £30.00. Image

Winter metallics

Saw this treat on the way home last night on the Northern Line. I know that metallics are hot right now but this is chilling. If you want to re-create this look River Island has a pair for just £45.00. Borrow your boyfriends gym bag, your nan's shoes and dig out that pleather, faux sheep skin biker jacket from 2001 to complete the look. Frizzy ginger mane optional.


Versace for H&M

images from and GettyDonatella's collection for H&M finally went on sale today, I felt obliged to buy a piece and actually found something wearable that I like, this silk bustier for £69.99. Being a little lazy I purchased it online from the comfort of my own home rather than fighting the crowds on Oxford Street. It looked fab on the runway and on Emma Roberts, actress and niece of Julia Roberts, who attended the show in NYC last week. The only downside is that I need to get down to the gym, I bought the last one and it was a size 10. Oh well, I've been meaning to drop a stone or so, now is the perfect time, I've set myself a challenge for New Year!


Where were Kitty's lucky boots?

Kitty Brucknell's luck ran out tonight as she was booted off The X Factor after being in the bottom 2 for the third and final time. Every week she has been wearing her lucky Miu Miu inspired boots for the Sunday night elimination show, where were they tonight? It seems a change in footwear spelled the end of the road.

Liquorice digits

I hate liquorice, it's trendy magazine copy for saying 'black'. I decided to paint my nails in this sombre hue as part of my half arsed witches outfit at an intimate Halloween soirée I threw last Saturday night. The boyfriend went all out and decorated our flat in cob webs, candles and carved pumpkins. We nibbled spooky canapés washed down with terrifying passion fruit Martinis. I actually decided to try fake stick on nails by Cosmopolitan and then paint them black with Rimmel 60 Second Nail Polish in Black Out, never again. I found myself trying to prize off the painful nails at 4am after waking up fully clothed as a drunk witch in front of a blaring TV. 40 mins later they were off, leaving behind a bumpy layer of hardened glue. A week later and my nails are still ruined, I've been painting over the mess with the Rimmel nail polish, now I'm addicted to this new look, bit rock chick for me but I'm styling it out...
