Want. That. Coat.

It seems British Heritage brand Daks have enlisted Paul and Leah Weller as their very own Style Council (Bad joke, soz). The father/daughter duo were seen out and about in London this week shooting for the Brit brand's latest collection. Expect rustic red tones, tartan and turtlenecks with a mod twist.

The latest trend to try this winter is the hair tucked in trend. Have you tried it yet? Tuck those ends away under a jacket, turtleneck or statement necklace and you're good to go. Pretty easy really. Obviously a trend derived by the accidentally stylish or people who are constantly in a rush...what's next? Chipped nails? An odd socks revival? Well if the likes of Mulberry, Chanel, Hermes and Belstaff are doing it you know it makes sense (and as long as you've got at least shoulder-length it's completely cost effective too).
See below for how to wear tips.
This trend screams effortless and works well with relaxed polo neck jumpers teamed with a tailored coat draped over the shoulders. Or try something a little more jazzy with a statement fur coat. But the general rules are...basically anything with a neckline will do. Oh and hair, you have to have hair.
See below for how to wear tips.

The music industry's very own Marmite. Love her or hate her she's got us right where she wants us. Talking about her. Here are ten of my favourite Miley Cyrus funnies taken from my favourite place - the INTERNET.
1. "Miley Cyrus is releasing a new fragrance called "Twerk", its just Billy Ray's tears in a bottle"
2. Hank and Marie from Breaking Bad watch the VMAs
4. Wrecking Ball Vine
5. "Drugs are for idiots. I'm never going to be that person."
6. Mufassa Billy Ray...
7. Greg James doing Wrecking Ball

You know when your wardrobe gets to that stage where you have so many clothes yet NOTHING to wear. That's me right now. My clothing options are either black, baggy or blah. A big eBay session is in order - out with the old and in with the new. Seeing as I can't quite justify splashing squillions on designer clothing I'm doing the next best thing. Yes. That's right. I'm photoshopping my head onto model bodies and hunting the high street for the next best thing.
APOLOGIES IN ADVANCE: IMAGES ARE (very poorly) PHOTOSHOPPED WITH MY BIG HEAD!

Go radiantly in rouge with this ASOS selection of red dresses.

OK first question...WHEN is the coca cola advert out? Everyone knows it's the ultimate indication that the holidays are indeed coming. Second question....have you seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert for 2013? Or to take it's actual name "The Bear & The Hare". It's my favourite so far. It might be the disney-esque feel, the kindness oozing from characters or Lily Allen's singing but warm and fuzzy feelings are definitely ignited.
I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!

My biggest celebrity spot in life has to be a rare sighting of the one and only Kate Moss. But you know when you see a celebrity in real life and you think "wow, kind of lacking several inches in the height department..." compared to pictures?
Well since seeing a picture of L'Wren Scott, AKA Mick Jagger's bit of stuff, it got me thinking how tall are some of these fashion designers? And the way my brain works this equals major exciting blog post material - similarly to when I pondered over the stylishness of said designers.
Bonus points for Price is Right HIGHER/LOWER chanting.
Kicking off with Marc Jacobs who enters the height chart at a respectable 5ft 8"...
No that's not an infant...It's SJP with 6 foot 4” L'wren Scott towering over her.
Stella McCartney stands at a slightly average 5 foot 4” with RiRi.
I have to say I was surprised by this one, it's the ever controversial Karl Lagerfeld at 5 foot 10”.
And taking it back to the old school it's Coco Chanel who stood ever so elegantly at 5 foot 5".

Did you know it's nearly 20 years since Clueless was released (1995)? Seeing as the 90s are SO ON TREND RIGHT NOW - oh hello crop tops! Oh hi there backpacks! - it got me thinking...this film is just, like, totally timeless!
A legendary piece of cinema which may have been created a lifetime ago (18 years is a definite lifetime) but in my eyes the wisdomous words of Cher, Dionne and sometimes Travis are still so relevant to today's population. Case in point.
Cher: He does dress better than I do, what would I bring to the relationship?
Cher: Would you call me selfish?
Dionne: No, not to your face.
Cher: Anything you can do to draw attention to your mouth is good.
Cher: I want to do something for humanity.
Josh: How about sterilisation?
Travis: I joined this program and there's steps. There's... uh...
Travis: Yeah, how'd you know?
Cher: Wild guess.
