Head of the Crew

Some sweet looks courtesy of J.Crew

As a lover of twitter...ok read addict ( I follow every fashion editor under the sun so this week was treated to many a twitpic of the J.Crew AW11 presentation. J.Crew is an amazing company with beautiful classic American basics. The AW11 collection did not disappoint, the colours for this fall collection are so right, amazing brights, cool trews and layering porn galore, I want it all.

It's a shame you can only get hold of J.Crew in the UK online, at with Banana "snore" Republic sprouting up on every british highstreet why the hell not?! So I'm shamelessly campaigning for at least a couple of J.Crew's in London. Who's with me?

Nothing like a Dame

We are guilty of bestowing those in hollywood as fashion icons, but when talking about Elizabeth Taylor and her style iconic is beyond fitting. Forget Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba and Natalie Portman, they may all be great actresses but aren't they all dressed by LA super stylists? Elizabeth Taylor lived and breathed glamour, she was the definition of hollywood style, no one can argue with that.

This is what an icon looks like. R.I.P

The Gap in my wardrobe

Obviously everyone in the world of fashion (including myself) has been lusting after the Spring/summer Gap mary-janes. I want a every colour-way that will probably never get released...what more can I say,the countdown to their April release has begun. They will be mine.
In other Gap news the AW11 collection images have surfaced, I am always so impressed with Gap, the styling is so slick it makes you want to buy everything. The injection of leather in this collection makes it feel modern and tough. Gap has come a long since the 90's logo hoodies. Oh and Joan Smalls looks the business in that tan bomber. Future purchase picked.

Floral Bursts and Colour Inspiration

Jigsaw obviously felt it was their time to blossom since the weather has peaked in the last few days and during my typical Bath shopping mooch I headed to the gorgeous refurbished old post office Jigsaw store and was more impressed with the VM than the clothing (although I did spot a rather arresting straw hat that caught my eye... ) Straw hats aside, the crazy bloom arrangement heads really made my day (and evoked a bit of a surreal Viktor and Rolf feel) all the colour reminded me that I need to stop dressing in navy, denim and khaki 24-7. Dreary colours do not a stylish fashion girl make, saying that I ended up buying a black skinny knit midi dress from Gap, but it's hot and black is always cool in the summer...Yeah right.

Channeling my inner J to the LO

I'm not too keen on posting pics of myself but I had to show off my new hat. You can see though why right? Anyway lately I am developing a serious hat fetish. Got this beauty on a street market in Bath for a tenner. Chic bargain dontchathink? It is my new Spring companion. Truth.
