Marni for H&M

You might have already heard, but the next collaboration H&M will be offering us is one with Marni!! I am so excited!! This collaboration couldn't be more different from H&M's last one, with Versace. It will have all the cool, modern aesthetics of Marni's main line. I, for one, cannot wait to get some Marni prints in my closet for such a low price!

DIY inspiration

I found this image on chase.dakota and loved the dress straight away. Wouldn't it be a great DIY project? Would transform any old white dress into a seriously stylish piece!

Pierre Hardy x Peugeot

What a great collaboration! Pierre Hardy and Peugeot have teamed up to create a pair of shoes inspired by Peugeot's new concept car. These fabulous futuristic shoes are made from brushed metal and are very multifunctional: the heels transform into flats within a few seconds for when you start driving, and then when you want to get out of the car because you have reached your glamorous destination, the heel can come back out! Fantastic idea!

Clements Ribeiro on the high street

Clements Ribeiro's a/w 2011 collection was one of the stand-out collections of the season. Lots of editors fell in love with the eye-catching designs featuring and ombre of multiple prints. These quirky designs did not go unnoticed by the high street retailers, and there are now a few reasonably prices alternatives available.

Dune shoes on sale

I came across these three summer shoes in the Dune sale. What a perfect investment for next spring! They are all at least half price and I love their satin prints combines with the raffia platforms. These prints are going to be everywhere next Spring, I have already seen so many blogs showing spring previews from H&M, Kurt Geiger which include chunky platform heels with a print on satin. For example, the Victoria by Victoria Beckham collection features lots of these Miu Miu-esque heels. For the Dune ones above: clockwise from top left: Dune Warhol slingbackDune Miro cut out bootDune Tie Dye pump.

Oasis has some seriously fab sparkly jackets this season, which would be perfect for Christmas dinners and other parties! Throw them over any outfit for a bit of extra sparkle! Both are available via asos. However, if you want to venture outside, Oasis also has a few amazing coats. They all embody subtle sophistication and will get you through the winter extremely stylishly! They are all available from the Oasis website.

Yasmin Le Bon in Christopher Kane

A few days ago, Yasmin Le Bon attended a party in London wearing a very fashionable Christopher Kane dress. Although most of the press hated it, I think she looked amazing!!! It's my favourite dress from the collection and she wears it in such a sophisticated way. It's very daring, but I think she pulls it off beautifully. What do you think?

Gemma Redux rings

How fabulous are these rings?! They're by Bibhu Mohapatra x Gemma Redux. The rings feature geode minerals set in brass which has undergone treatment including a layer of saturated hues. The result is a totally crazy, quirky but beautiful set of rings! They would definitely make a statement, no matter what you would wear them with. They are available from Gemma Redux's online store.

Fashion Foie Gras for Coach

One of my favourite blogs - in fact, the blog that inspired me to start my own - Fashion Foie Gras got the amazing opportunity to design a bag in collaboration with Coach! The result is fantastic - an oversized tote designed especially for bloggers! The design is beautiful and classic and will go with any outfit. But my favourite parts are the handy little compartments that have been designed in! There's one so that you can always get your camera out quickly if you see something inspirational, and on the other side there is a handy flap so that you can always have a pair of flats at hand (although, if you want this and do not own this fabulous bag, check out After Flats).. These are only a few of the fantastic details! Find out more here.

Gucci style at Karen Millen

Everyone seems to have fallen in love with Gucci's a/w 2011 gowns. They are glamour personified, and the rich jewel tones make them perfect for the winter festivities. Karen Millen also have some beautiful dresses in a similar style and with similar colours, but, of course, at a fraction of the price!

Dion Lee skirt

Oooh I hate it when designers come up with such unaffordable, but fabulous pieces! When they feature prints like this, there is also no chance of a DIY.. Absolutely gorgeous printed skirt by my favourite Australian designer Dion Lee. Would be the fashion statement piece in any wardrobe!

SuShilla Tallulah collection

These fabulous bangles are by a brand called SuShilla. This brand has many beautiful pieces, which all look very exotic and are inspired by places such as Marrakech and India. However, the 'Tallulah' collection is my absolute favourite. It features pretty gems set in silver or gold. I especially love the pieces that feature that lovely drusy stone as seen above. The rings are pretty gorgeous too.. The collection is available here.

Karen Millen Flower Print Dress

Love this elegant satin dress by Karen Millen. It features a beautiful flower print which I cannot resist, and the detail at the back makes it very pretty! Available  here.

French Connection Perspex Clutch

I've really fallen in love with this perspex clutch by French Connection. It's tiny, won't hold anything and is 100 quid, but it is sooo cute! And it's perspex.. And glittery! What more could you want from a clutch?! Available here.

River Island sale gem print dress

Love this graphic jewel print on a red satin background. What a statement dress! Currently half price at River Island.

Fishtail Top Knot

Refinery29 recently posted about new ways to braid your hair. The one style I really fell in love with is this one: it is a fishtail braid top knot! You literally create a fishtail braid and then twirl it round into a high bun. The result is fab!

Polka Dot perfection

Polka dots have been taking the world of fashion by storm. We mainly have Marc Jacobs to thank for this trend. When I first saw his collections featuring spots, I wasn't convinced. But since then, high street retailers have convinced me that this is one of the best trends this winter! I have assembled some of my top polka dot finds for you. Above, the dresses: top left hand corner Polka Dot Embroidery Dress by Karen Millen, top right hand corner Karen Millen Polka Dot Back Dress, in the middle Warehouse Spot Mesh Dress, bottom left hand corner Motel New Zoe Dress in Polka, bottom right hand corner Asos Midi Spot Print Dress.

Karen Millen Colour Block Dress

This colour block dress by Karen Millen is quite simple, but there is something about it that I absolutely adore! The pattern and different colours, the fact that it's red on the inside. Perfect sophisticated Fall Colour blocking! It is available online here.

Reiss clutch

This fabulous clutch is from Reiss. It is part of a collection celebrating Reiss' 40 year anniversary. Talk about celebrating in style! It is made out of a black fabric, overlaid with a gold brass cutwork 'cage'. It's sturdy, eye-catching, works well with almost any outfit and because it's black and gold, you don't have to worry too much about getting it dirty. Sounds like the perfect clutch to me!

Color.Bugs Dip Dye

Everyone seems to be obsessed with Kevin Murphy's COLOR.BUGS at the moment. They are small pots containing a powderlike substance which you can rub into your hair for a coloured dip dye effect. You can choose three different colours, but when Dutch Blog Girlscene tested the COLOR.BUGS, they used all three, starting with the peach colour at the tips of the hair, pink in the middle, and purple at the top. I had to share the result, the three colours work so well together! Too bad it wouldn't work as well on my dark hair...

Amanda Coleman flower collection

This pretty, delicate necklace is by a designer called Amanda Coleman. It is part of the Flower collection, some of which feature gold coated or silver cow parseley figures clustered into circles, with a a white pearl in the middle. I love the effect, it makes me think of snowflakes! Another piece I love is the earrings from the same collection. Shop the collection here.

French Connection skirt in the style of DKNY

Spot the difference! The two on the left are by DKNY. The first is a look from the a/w runway collection, the middle is a colour block tote available on net-a-porter. The skirt on the right is from French Connection. When I first saw it, I was sure it was a direct copy of a DKNY skirt, but looking around now, I can't find anything similar. But it definitely has the same colour scheme going on! It's a great way to bring colour blocking into your fall wardrobe.. Available here.

Colour block nails

A while ago I posted a tip on how to delay having to redo your nails all over again when your nail polish starts chipping: add another colour on top for a colour block effect! Since then, I have been going colour block crazy over this handy top and I wanted to show you the results! I have been getting so many compliments! The first combination (above) resulted from when my Chanel Peridot started chipping, so I put Barry M Indigo on top. After that I combined Chanel Graphite with Bloom Molly, and most recently Mavala The Elle Orange with a Nails Inc colour similar to Savile Row. What do you think?
