David Koma SS12...

I'm slowly rounding up my favourite collections from London Fashion Week. David Koma has been a fully fledged obsession of mine for oh...around...2-3 years? Way before Chezza and Bey jumped on board.

You take one look at this and think. Yep. Everywhere will be selling sheer leggings with tribal cut out prints, and sheer dresses with the boob area cut out. Then you can all say, oh yeah Amelia said that would happen. (or not as the case may be!)

Who has spot any emerging trends? Apart from pastel shades...I can't wait to do my seasonal trend round up. Yeah buddy!

Meadham Kirchhoff SS12...

Meadham Kirchhoff are fashion's wild child. Unpredictable from one season to the next, where the only recurring aesthetic is amazingness. For SS12 Meadham Kirchhoff did roccoco on ACID! Like the whole collection was based on one phrase - let them eat cake - and so an array of cookie cutter pinnys, dramatic pastel furs, marshmallow tutus and goldielocks curls strutted the catwalk amongst a balloon filled runway.

Honestly get a look at this in full! In other news, I'm still up for that Cosmo Blog Award! Established Fashion Blog - Whodda funk it! (And get a load of Donna Ida in Best Brand Blog too! Woop)

Mary Katrantzou SS12...

Mary Katrantzou appears to be filling a Luella shaped hole in my life. The beauty and creativity of her collections are awe inspiring to a point of thinking - how? Katrantzou's vision is second to none, the patnership between print, colour and cut is unlike anything on the London Fashion scene. It's safe to say i'm in love.

Watercolour florals in a popping poster palette, with puffed out silhouettes and soft tailoring. Asymmetric hem and necklines return again with the mini replacing the midi lengths. See more here.

Do you love Mary as much as me? Or am I just being overly patriotic?

Cosmopolitan Blog Awards!

To top off a stressful month I have just found out i'm shortlisted for a Cosmopolitan Blog Award!!!!!

I'm so overwhelmed. Especially as I will hold my hands up to not giving my blog the attention it deserves for the past two months, well I am BACK I tell you! Now, the competition is very very stiff - and whilst there is no way I could beat the likes of Disney Roller Girl - I would appreciate your vote all the same you lovely lot. And in return I promise to deliver the best god damn fashion blog you ever did see!

Lots of love to you all X

Hot Trend Alert for SS12...

Last 'summer' (can we even call it that?) was about the ACID brights. And plenty of 'em. Next year it seems as though palettes are muted and toned down to adorable candy, pastel shades. Take Phillip Lim 3:1 for example, blocking his sherbet tones with crisp whites in softly tailored, loose pieces. I can see this trend all over the high street. What do you think?

The Shade Parade...

From one insanely naff advert to one insanely amazing one...this is the new advert for Chanel nail polish and! Why has no one thought ot this before??? Just watch...

So flipping good right? I've just watched it about 4 times in a row! The finger dancing actually creates an illusion of dancing legs. Plus, is it just me or does that song remind you of Matilda?

Not so magical Emma...

Errrr hello! I'll explain my absence a little bit further on down but I just HAD to share the new Lancome perfume add with you. Now, I like Emma Watson as much as the next Potter obsessive but this advert is totally naff. Let me elaborate:

1. Music sounds like they've bought it from one of those sites where you don't have to credit the artist.
2. She's trying to be Diane Keaton.
3. HOW many times has this story been told before?

How dissappointing! I expect better of you Lancome and some originality at least! It's not that it's a terrible advert (cough cough) It's just...trés cringe.

Anyway, hello. If you follow me on Twitter (and haven't unfollowed from my pretty boring tweetage over the last few weeks) then you will have seen my plans of a blogging bank holiday were ruined by unforseen circumstances! However, my quota of depressed tweets for the year has been well and truly filled and i'm happy to announce i'm back in the game.
