Fashion Foie Gras I fell in love. I have been looking for the perfect pair of slippers for a while now, and it's been a tough journey: on the one hand, I love all the coloured/glitter/studded stand out versions, but on the other hand, I want them to be able to be my go-to flat, and so be a basic that can go with any outfit. These ones seem to be the perfect solution! They are a neutral colour, but with a neon lining! Perfect! They can even be made with your initials sewn on. It's a bespoke service where you can create your own online. I played around for a bit and mine came out looking something like this. Unfortunately they are not within my student budget, so I may have to wait and see if my lovely parents will get me them for my birthday! Check the site out yourself here.
Accessorize and it reminded me of Chloe straight away! It could have been featured on the a/w 2011 runway, it fits the collection so well! The bucket model, snakeskin print and combination of different fabrics and colours were all seen in the Chloe a/w bags. Although luckily, this one doesn't feature a snake head on the flap!

Doloris Petunia I knew what my goal is going to be: small, sophisticated gems that I can paint neon!

1. The new ombre: I loved a few new takes on ombre, such as at Armani (bottom right), where a space-y metallic ombre was presented. I also loved the beautiful shades of grey at Dior (top two images), both the layered ombre that builds up in each layer, and the sheer black to white ombre were subtle but modern takes on this trend.
2. Matching your loafers with your couture dress: or any dress for that matter! I couldn't believe I was seeing loafers at a couture presentation, but there they were at Valentino (bottom right). Looks in different colours had different coloured loafers, and the effect was really cute!
3. Hot pink with a gold statement necklace. I've always loved the combination of pink and gold, but seeing it in this Giambattista Valli look made me want to find a way to wear it now! The hot pink with the massive gold statement was an amazing look.

a while ago? Well Asos has come to the rescue with a much more affordable option, although also less fabulous (isn't it always the case?). It is still an awesome statement cuff that will add some glamour to a look! Available here.

I don't think anyone could have missed the Golden Globes recently, lots of blogs had a great round-up of all the looks. I thought it was a very well-dressed event, but there were two looks that really inspired me. They weren't necessarily my best dressed of the evening, but there was something about their looks that I wanted to bookmark for my own style. The first was Jamie King in Valentino Couture. She looked ethereal in her satin gown, it was a perfect choice for her. But what I'm obsessing over is the combination of satin and that lovely pastel mint colour! It is so beautiful!! I NEED something satin in this stunning colour! (Image via The Fashion Patrol). The second look that caught my eye was Kelly MacDonald in Lorena Sarbu. This was so much more than a sequin gown. I absolutely love the effect of the green and blue sequins together, it gave the dress such a modern, maybe even space-y, feel! I am not officially on the hunt for a dress with green and blue sequins to get a similar effect! (Photo via Instyle).
