Thought of the day

"It's better to be stylish and cold, than warm and frumpy."

The world according to Derek Blasberg. I love him.

Will you be buying...

Tom Ford's new Private Blend lipstick range? The colours look sumptuous, the packaging divine but retailing at £35? Unless this stuff can make me look like Carolyn Murphy with one application I'll be sticking with MAC.

Just another reason to love LDN

A red-head Rapunzel must have been waiting for her Prince in the unlikely setting of Soho's Beak Street the day i took this photo. Gotta love The Big Smoke...

Outnet! You broke my heart

To say I was excited about The Outnet sale is the understatement of the decade. A £1 sale for Net-a-Porter's old stock is tailored made for the thrifty fashionista and the thought of getting my hands on some spindly heeled Miu Miu's or a breathtaking Fendi gown had me positively giddy. When my email came through at 7.23am confirming I could get in to the sale I sprang out of bed. Unfortunately some things just aren't meant to be, I had difficulties logging on and The Outnet server was seriously over worked, so I had to say goodbye to my Miu Miu dreams...To that girl who exclaimed on Outnet's twitter she got an Erdem gown for a quid. I salute you.

Dodgwa Fash-wa: Trackie Bs go couture

So when Alexander Wang shows something on a catwalk it's safe to say it's gonna catch on. The sport-luxe trend is EVERYWHERE this season, even more than all those pesky fleshy hues and I'm kind of loving it. Having purchased a grey Gap off-the-shoulder sweater this weekend, which compliments my sage peg-legs, I'm positively in enamoured with the look. An off-the-shoulder top isn't exactly difficult to pull off, fashion tracksuit bottoms on the other hand...

I have to admit, I've been wrestling with the notion of tracksuit chic for many months. I love an open-toe bootie and think they look great with harems, but harems made from sweat material?! It all seems just a step too far. All I know is that I don't want to look back on Summer 2010 and feel the same way I do about looking back at photos of myself in a rip-off juicy couture velour tracksuit c.2001, J to the LO I wasn't...Although these Whistles sweats could convince me otherwise, so i'm preparing myself for fashion shame as we speak.
