Anyone who knows me will know that New York Fashion Week is like my Christmas. I have been glued to every and any online outlet for the designs since the shows kicked off. One of these days I will get there and be witnessing it all first hand. One day…..
I couldn’t wait to see the Victoria Beckham show as I think her designs are amazing. Needless to say the catwalk did not disappoint. Diane von Furstenberg and Michael Kors are also firm favourites of mine. So here are some of my top picks from the shows so far, I hope you enjoy 🙂
Diane von Furstenberg
Oscar de la Renta
Herve Leger by Max Azria
I particularly admired Peter Copping’s designs for Oscar de la Renta, which did not disappoint despite the late namesake not being this year’s creator.
The FROW’s style was also particularly admirable as always. I will be doing more on some of their looks later in the week.
I’m a big fan of Miranda Kerr. I know it’s difficult for a top model to look bad, but I do think that she rarely puts a foot wrong in the style stakes. She’s constantly rocking a polished, chic look that somehow still looks effortless. Thigh high boots are everywhere at the moment and this is a great look to not only showcase the trend, but your pins too! Thigh highs can be a tricky trend to pull off in a classy way but this look is incredibly stylish and actually wearable too.

The LBD has long been a style staple for every girl. This is particularly true in the run up to the festive season. With numerous parties to attend, it can sometimes feel like you are running out of looks and outfits. The classic black dress is always an option that will save you any stress. It is and always will be a classic, stylish look.
There are so many different styles, shapes and looks that a black dress can create. There literally is not one woman who cannot wear a black dress and change it to her own personal style. I have chosen the Top 10 Black Dresses currently available and perfect for the party season, I have gone for a range of different styles in the hope that everyone finds something they like.

Investing in a black dress is always a smart choice in my opinion, if it is good quality you can literally have it for years. Perfect excuse to go shopping ladies!
“I’ll stop wearing black, when they invent a darker colour”
Black is one of my favourite colours to wear, I think it is so classic and timeless and a good quality black piece is always worth an investment! Never has there been a colour that is so versatile and can be worn with anything, by anyone. How many times have you struggled to find shoes / jacket to go with an outfit and ended up opting for black? If you’re anything like me, then quite often! I think black works particularly well throughout winter and in the run up to Christmas. Let’s be honest, if it’s good enough for Audrey and Coco, then it is definitely good enough for me!
Here are some of the best black pieces currently available on the high-street and online at the moment. I have a feeling this will be a recurring feature on my blog in the run up to Christmas as there are always new stylish offerings being introduced.
Yesterday I was off sick from work and my day basically consisted of undertaking two activities; coughing and procrastinating! My procrastination combined with the almighty Google led to my lusting over Nicole Richie’s style. She is the perfect combination between casual grunge and sleek chic! Long gone are her peroxide extensions and ill fitting tops, they have now (thankfully) been replaced by structured monochrome pieces and clashing prints. Her sun-glass collection is also one to be envious of! I absolutely love her ever-changing hairstyles too. It seems that she is using it as an outlet to showcase her now inner wild child.
