Chanel Couture 2010

I refuse to show any restraint with photos for this post....


I really don't think words can justify my love for this collection. The pastels, the heart shaped hair (that reminds me of My Little Pony) the sixties/alien vibe...the stunning silks...the crazy Karl gloves...and the polish. I'm really digging the silver polish.

Basically, it just deepens my obsession with Chanel even more, when will it ever end?

Charlotte Gainsbourg's new album IRM, is brilliant. Written and produced by Beck, my favourite tracks are Le Chat du Cafe des Artistes, Time of the Assassins and Le Collectionneuse...I wish I could speak French, it's probably the nicest language to listen to, don't you think?

Go here and here to watch her perform a couple of the new tracks.

I should probably pluck up the courage to see that film she was in, Antichrist, though something tells me it won't be as chilled as her music is...

Birthday Treats

I thought I would share some of my favourite birthday surprises...

Delicious Patisserie Valerie cake.

Yoshitomo Nara card from Flora, entitled 'Missing in Action' and 'Orange Fizz' Chanel nail polish from Sass.

Alex Monroe Bumblebee necklace, set against my new Asos dress.

I was thoroughly spoilt by Fiona, who bought me a metallic Green Marc Jacobs keyring, a cute lipstick pen and a lovely Marc tote that will be perfect for spring time sprees...I love its slogan: 'Jacobs By Marc Jacobs For Marc By Marc Jacobs In Collaboration with Marc Jacobs For Marc Jacobs By Marc Jacobs' ...try saying that double time!

Couldn't wait to see Viktor and Rolf's S/S 10 collection off the catwalk, Dazed didn't disappoint!

My new Whistles 'Ladoga Lurex' sweater has made me very's one of the few things I managed to find in the January Sales, £40 down to £25!! Apologies for the rubbish photography. It reminded me of Alexander Wang's Spring/Summer 2010 collection....

Birthday Bunny

It's my Birthday today so to celebrate I thought I'd post the Comme des Garcon themed Fifi Lapin that popped up on her blog today. What a cutie!

I am 23 now, so much has happened in a year but as usual I don't feel much different...only perhaps a little annoyed as 23 is one of my least favourite numbers (37 being my most hated)'s something to do with odd numbers I think. I'm coming down with a cold...good thing I had my Alex Monroe birthday bumblebee necklace and Patisserrie Valerie cake to cheer me up (photos to follow soon if I can get some nice ones)!

Some of my favourite winter looks...

Can I call you mine?

...July Flame - title track of the new album by Laura Veirs which has been getting rave reviews this week that I definitely can't disagree with. It's just the kind of music I love listening to on a lazy Saturday afternoon, check it out, if only for the cute split pin puppets!

Patent Pennies

My Kate Kanzier Penny Loafers arrived today!!!

I wish it wasn't still icey outside so I could give them a test run.

You should really check out her site, there's a great sale on right now and plenty of affordable pretty little shoes!

Real Vs Fake

These are the latest additions to my nail polish collection...inspired by the below manicures my friends and I were treated to at Chanel during Vogue's Fashion night out a few months ago! I've been living in Rouge Noir and have found the perfect fake version of the Chanel Jade polish that sold out...good old Barry M!!

This marks the start of my blog becoming a little more personal...I'll try my best to include some snapshots of my favourite things this year, bear with me though, I don't have a DSLR and it may take a while for me to get into the whole visual merchandising side of blogging!

Atacoma II

Though they are pretty amazing, I've started getting bored of seeing the same old Black Acne Atacoma wedges everywhere... still, I'm looking forward to seeing the new grey version gracing the feet of the blogging elite sometime soon!

Charles Anastase

OMGCharlesAnastaseforJoseph?! Sorry this picture is kinda poor quality, but you get the LOVELY gist...

Rodarte Report

Rodarte for men is now being stocked at Opening Cermony.
The line is aptly named Brodarte, ahaha.
I wish I could have been in America for their collaboration with Target last month...tho I'm unsure I would be able to cram myself into the Junior sized collection!
I may have to settle for this copycat by Whistles instead:
