Celebrities/ Brigitte Bardot: The Collection

Well here I am reading my French Grazia, pretty chuffed that I can understand snippets of text. I finished the magazine but not before an advert caught my eye and nearly made me spit out my cup of green tea.

Remember... you heard it here first! (unless you read French Grazia!)

You see, Brigitte Bardot has brought out a collection. My mother was shocked, she thought Brigitte was dead! Evidently not. Brigitte Bardot the collection with be going public for RTW S/S 2012!

I'm expecting boho skirts and fun 60's pieces, I will keep you updated with the developments with the French icons collection!



Sadly I must inform you that the Brigitte Bardot I was so hyped a hoax! Or rather a great deception...The line in fact is an offshoot of the delightful Rachel Zoe's collection, completely inspired by the legendary singer Bardot.

Still exciting stuff!!

My last post was selected for the Independent Fashion Bloggers Links a la Mode, yay! There are so many great posts for last week so please check all them out. Congratulations everyone who got on the list!

Be Authentically You!

Edited by: Fajr of Stylish Thought

The IFB conference is over and the dust is finally settling. After a day of being immersed in the power and study of blogging, I’m left thinking about what I learned from IFB this season. Without a doubt, the unequivocal theme was to blog and be authentically you. From building your blogging tool kit to balancing it all, being unique and putting what you love into the blogging space is the best method to lasting blogging success.

Memoirs of a Geisha/ Oriental Edit

Good Morning! Back to school tomorrow, sigh...

I'm back from France after soaking up the last rays of summer sun; school has reared its ugly head. You would have found me at the poolside with a book in my hand, The Devotion of Suspect X came to a devastating cliffhanger with me begging for a sequel, but I then moved onto a classic: Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.

As you may or may not know, I am a bit of an Orientalist. I love Chinese and Japanese art, style and history. This approaching season, Oriental is back, and hopefully to stay!

Here are some of my favourite Oriental styled pieces of the season:

Runway Inspiration:

Miu Miu F/W RTW 2011 wool and sequin coat.

Ralph Lauren silk shantung embroidered smoking jacket.

Beading and sparkles play a huge part in this trend.
Chanel Pre-F/W 2010 Collection.

Hussein Chalayan Kaikoku A/W Collection

In Store:

Embroidered silk jacket - Topshop

Stripes and Checks

This fall, prints are high in style. Mix and match stripes and checks, in all colours and sizes. Especially dark autumn colours like mustard yellow, dark red, brown, black, dark green and blue, beige...

I really fancy something mustard yellow at the moment, I think it's really nice. At first I really hated that yellow, but the more I see it, the more I like it and as long as you know how to coordinate it with different garments, it turns out really pretty and chic.

Anyway I searched for some in store and runway outfits with some checks and stripes. I have a "L'Officiel" fall/winter 2011/12 collections magazine, it's got everything and it comes in really handy.

Playlist/ Song for Summer #7

Eeep!! I love this song! It reminds me  very much of The White Stripes music style. This is quite possibly one of my favourites for the Summer Playlist, out of all the amazing tunes we've had.

Please, please give this a listen. You wont regret it!

Little Sister by The Codeine Velvet Club by victorialee

This song featured in one of the channel 4 adverts for Gossip Girl, very fitting indeed!

Lots of love.
