although, does the model's posture remind anyone of a meerkat?
the above and below dress is PHILIP PREISWERK for central saint martin's graduate show. loving the color and the fabric. however not so sure on the what looks like patches on the bodice. but love the stripes across the face....
Mr Prieswerk seemed to be a rave with the reviewers who all included his work across a series of blogs, newspaper articles and in deed the mothership...vogue.com. his mad sculptural ball gowns did seem to lift the spirits and blow away the competition. eye catching, a little bit crazy but very very stylish...i like! i do have to ask, though. the last dress with the puff shape...where would you wear it????!!!!
phoebe English was another designer to watch with her interesting head pieces such as the one above. quirky. I like the gold detail on the skirt too.
this was the only thing i was not sure about. I dislike the string vest and feel it let the interesting shape of the skirt down. the string vest is a bit Gwen Stefani in her hollaback days....
check out an earlier blog on her thigh high laser cut boots......erm, has she been raiding stringfellows for style tips. note to RiRi, those ladies are paid to wear that garb (and paid for some other nasty stuff too) so, maybe, we should leave the professionals to it?
give your mate Kanye a bell, i'm sure with his new job at GAP he could sort you right out with a nice blouse or some capri pants (thats what I imagine GAP sell because i would never shop there- please)
oh rihanna, do go back to your stylish roots and prove me wrong. we have all had our moments of style vomit enducing outfits (cheryl cole's pathetic birthday dancing on ice disaster anyone?)
please say this is a once off.
COME BACK TO THE LIGHT RIHANNA!!!!!
anyway, i do love her. she has the balls to be different and a bit mad and more a bit of a weirdo. so, why not! lets all do it!
the collection is highly wearable. were as (I'll be honest ) i've never been into Evans (the clothes are horrible) this would change my mind. the clothes are in a range of 14 - 32. and decently priced. so for those of us who are a bit bigger and still like a sequin, it's perfect. the right mix of beth ditto and evans.
First we talked about Beth's frustrations in never being able to find fun must-haves," says Lisa Marie Peacock, head designer for Evans, whose team apparently spent weeks last summer tailing Ditto on the festival circuit and talking to her fans about their clothes and where they shopped. "Beth arrived with loads of cute little sketches and a suitcase full of amazing vintage clothes that she'd begged, borrowed and stolen over the years. She was even involved choosing fabrics and prints."
There are cunning little tricks in the collection to ensure a good fit. The high-waisted leggings have reinforced waist panels, so won't have to be yanked up every five minutes, and the stretchy domino dress is made of double fabric. "We tried every piece on a size-16 model and a size-22 model, then Beth would try them on too and jump around a lot."
right, erm, how to start with these. right, these look like something you would find on the sale rails at topshop. ( with three quarters of the price slashed off, in every size and lots of them) they are manky. While I am not the biggest fan of the dip dye trend. (because it was last summer and everyone from river island to primark ripped it off and did it badly)
I have to say, shocked. these are stella mcartney. dear lord...is this what it has come to?
it looks a little bit like a fifteen year old was let loose with a tin of bleach and an afternoon off from school with the promise of a school disco to go to and no new clothes. seriously??? your telling she made these? with what, a smirk on her face? a giggle? a pint of gin in her hand????
i'm really sorry that this site can sometimes be a big annoying that it has to be opinion but i refuse to lick a designers arse if i don't like bits of a collection....
hey, I may be a bitch, but at least i'm an honest bitch................
the curious thing about topshop jackets (no other jacket mind) is that they tend to go walk abouts. i don't mean a fashion mugging or a simple desk theft (R.I.P. my beloved duffle coat) but, they tend to move of their own accord.
that aforementioned jacket and my duffle coat used to disapear for months on end and would reappear as if nothing was wrong. my duffle once went to galway without me. stayed for a week and then came home (a friends car) and it also went to germany once with me but stayed in another hotel. the cropped jacket went to a house party, liked it so much it didn't come home for a year. it got back finally a bit worse for wear in june.
(party was in september) the jacket looked half shagged out!!!!
does anyone else have these issues with their topshop (only topshop) jackets?

Apologies to Madonna Lucia for robbing the pic above but, when I go to an event I like to cover it for the blog. So off I went to the new Confessions night in Scotts bar last saturday. With my best Miss Penny dreadful attire on ( which is backcombed hair and some glitter) and I have to say I was tired, i was sore (from my new past time of jogging) and i was in a bad mood ( too many mojitos the night before) i was in no humour. HOWEVER, upon arriving my bad mood was lifted, the music was good, the layout and decor of the pub was brilliant - they had a fecking pole - and the crowd was amazing! I had an amazing night. the only small problem was the over 21's door policy (the boyfriend is under 21 - i however am old) but they still let him in which helped us avoid a scene.
I got a go or six on the pole and am happy to report i am still HANGING! from it!!! the poor boyfriend had to put me to bed early sunday and give me a massage to stop me from moaning. (which I do all too well) but all in all. I do reccommened this club to anyone which I think is running every second week, because its a great laugh!!! prepare to be dying the next day though....... and don't drinking mojitos the night before....just a tip.....

me. on the way to dublin. rocking a topshop leather/pvc mix jacket and a vintage looking scarf. Totally caught off guard with the camera. but you can also see my chain necklace and black dress. Dublin was amazing as always. I have to report on the top five trends I observed while there :
Bloody topshop sale has hit. and i am totally broke. here are my tip offs for a top sale shop.
