Don’t Rain On My Parade

21 Nov

It’s cold, wet, and windy, and it seems everyone is fighting off a runny nose and cough. Here is a pick of my favourite winter essentials:

L719 Lulu Guinness Birdcage-2 Birdcage_CMYK_300dpi_cpAs this blog progresses, you may realise I have a strange love for ‘animal’ accessories/clothing/jewellery. This quirky Lulu Guiness birdcage umbrella £32 is bound to put a smile on someones face while it’s raining.

Okay, so this may have been from their A/W 2011 collection, but I couldn’t resist putting Burberrys’ rain cape in here. I find the bold black lines make this cape look rather Chanel-esque too, which is a plus.

I remember loving these from the first time I laid eyes on them- Hunter ‘Regent Apsley’ wellies £145. The quintessentially British look to these are perfect after this year of events, such as the Olympics and the Queens jubilee.

A huge trend a the moment is coats with leather sleeves. I particularly like this River Island biker style coat with leather look sleeves £75.

Victoria’s Secret Annual Show

15 Nov

It’s probably the only fashion show that men enjoy just as the ladies: the annual Victoria’s Secret show. The models gracing the catwalk in all their angelic finery included Lily Aldridge, the increasingly popular Cara Delevingne (I’m still not sure if I like or dislike her eyebrows yet?!), and a couple of my favourites, Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel. British model Jourdan Dunn also made her VS debut, which is no mean feat for someone who was discovered whilst shopping in Primark.

Although the whole event is rather cheesy on some level, one can’t ignore the amount of work that must go into these outfits. Ok, so they may be a bit OTT but I would love it if these were for actually for sale!
