Vogue's Fashion Night Out!

This Wednesday is Vogue's Fashion Night Out across multiple city. I will obviously be attending the London event. It is a great experience to do some late night shopping, drink free champers, eat macroons, listening to the East London Cool DJ sets and freebies. I am already piling a list of shops to hit especially ones with weird and wonderful events on. My eye is on the following:

Chanel - Free manicure
COS - Macroons and Champers darlin'
Christian Louboutin - Mad Hatter's Tea Party with Photography
Coast - Cupcakes and Champers again Darlin'
GAP - Photobooth wearing head to toe in denim. I sense a 80s double denim look going on.
Marc Jacobs - Free Marc Jacobs BANG t-shirt to the first 200 visitors.
River Island - Cocktail bar and photobooth action
Aquascutum - Oysters
Topshop - photobooth with chance to win gift vouchers

The list is endless but they are some of the nights out I decided to hit on. More details can be found below at Vogue's Fashion Night Out.

See you guys there!

My Autumn Trends

Recently in the press, I read about all what is hot and what is not for AW 10. To be honest I find this all overwhelming and how young women are meant to rush out for the latest trends. I am sorry, I was still not convinced by Vagina hHigh boots last year. They looked great but slightly impractical for the slightly tall challenged. Here is my list of my staples I ALWAYS wear during this season.

1. Fur collars

My personal opinion is that vintage fur collars attached to any jacket or coat, already increases the aesthetic value and updates a tired look. It brings a luxurious look and personally fits in with my style well.

2. Scarves - Granny and Tartan

I own a few scarves, but the main one that is always a staple in my wardrobe is my trusted granny scraf one that easily provide volume to an outfit and the tartan scarf which adds a bit of English heritage to any outfit.

3. Tailored camel and grey trousers

Great for work and provides a different look to the usual bog standard jeans and tshirt look. I am personally not a big fan of just jeans and T-shirt plain Jane look. I must admit I have been caught in those sort of outfits but I stress it is a pure lazy day. I am not a trouser person but I believe in well cut pair of trousers in a interesting non black but professional colour works wonders for an outfit. They smarten any t-shirt.

4. Red Beret

Any friends who read this will know I am always seen in my red beret during winter months. I do enjoy wearing hats and tbh when the big chill comes again this December - January I will be prepared for the weather with my lovely red beret. It is rather useful for friends to find you in crowd of people as well. :)

5. Riding Boots

Classic leather boots that NEVER ever go out of fashion. Must have.

I am now bored of listening to my own rantings. Have a nice evening.

Reinventing the Wheel

I have been busy with my current Office based job, which unfortunately is not based on fashion and have banned all networking sites. I am currently thinking of a new direction to take this blog as I do not have time to collect, resize images of clothes I like, take pictures of my daily wears or my new purchases.

Therefore, currently brainstorming a new direction to take this. This may resort to a look into office wear and the City lifestyle which I feel not many blogs talk about. Or I may be thinking of new ideas such as setting a new challenge for my wardrobe. It currently fills with suits and smart wear. All has changed since I started this, when I thought I was going to be near unemployable in a recession and needed something to do during the days of unemployment. This is now not the case.

I leave you guys with a favourite song of mine...

Pride and Prejudice

Sorry for being off the radar but been overwhelming busy with work and trying to balance that with my social life, has made no time for blogging.

Spent the Saturday in the lovely town, Bath. I adore the Georgian houses and gardens that Bath has to offer, as well as the Roman Baths. I do recommend visiting this quaint town.

I dressed very smart for the very smart town. I do not normally wear trousers, but I love these trousers as they are quite casual but smarter then jeans. It makes me feel very grown up and I am starting to forget about my dizzy bright colours I wore not long ago in my teens.

I am wearing Grey T-shirt from Monki, Cream Trousers from Uniqlo, Vintage Cardigan, Vintage bag and Vintage Belt.

Flash a Hungry Smile

New title of Mystery Jets new song. I am loving it, in time for summer tunes. Reminds me of frolicking in the fields of the my home town Buckinghamshire. How I miss the countryside and your imagination going wild. With ideas of making a little forest den covered in fairy lights with butterflies whizzing around.

Love the imagery below, I want dress lights in my den!

Oh Master Bates!

Sorry for the slight pun here but any British kids in their twenties will remember the children programme Captain Pugwash with Master Bates and Seaman Staines. All very delightful British puns aimed at 6 year olds. Nice!

Shamefully my weekend was not filled with these puns, one may say a rather dull weekend then. However, me and some friends decided to rent a pedal boat in Hyde Park (girls and boys half an hour is suffice, as one hour you really will be doing laps around the lake). My friends brought cake and coffee, I gauged myself in sushi. Wanker snob much? I think so, all I needed is to drink straight from a bottle of champers darlin' and we will be all set for some wanker posh toff marlkey.

Ship Ahoy! (My friend's breasts are about the size of my head...)

Badly attempting Lady GaGa Bad Romance dance here...

Outfit: Sunglasses - H&M, Breton Striped Top - Uniqlo, Shorts - Cut off an old pair of Topshop Jeans, Blazer - Charity Shop, Fur Collar - Paris Vintage Shop, Tights - H&M, Brown Bag - Car Boot Sale and Floral Head Band - Spitafield's Market.

Have a beautiful week lovelies!

An Single Lady and Her Tom Ford Foolery

Following my vieiwng of An Single Man, which I highly recommend to watch if not to see Colin Firth beautiful acting, but the gorgeous cinematography and the fact Nicholas Hoult looks absolutely lovely in the film even if he is slightly tango-ed.

Here is my attempt to gain geek chic. I am also apparently advocating Koppaberg as well as some Tom Ford Geek Sheek Glasses. All I need is beautiful boy brushing my hair to have vice versa photo to Nicholas Hoult advert.

p.s. Velvet Leotards are totally hot hot hot!!!

p.p.s. Big thank you to my friend who has taken a lot of my intoxicated antics this week. I am on massive detox now and not in good time with St Patrick's day. :(
