COLD SNAP

The weather has finally decided it’s winter and I am so confused! I didn’t think it was warm enough for my prized Burberry shearling but it probably is; however I also want a new oversized coat yet I have also seen an amazingly cute Zara duffle which must be mine!!!  As trend of the season, this years coat is especially important hence the choice – there’s dream world where Stella’s check wonder and outsized grey catwalk coats would have been draped across my shoulders months ago and Victoria Beckham’s navy check over sized has also been on my mind since first sight in February….whether I’m dreaming or not it’s such a hard life!!  Decisions, decisions…….

Russian Dolls

Miroslava Duma, ex Russian Harper’s editor and street style star is top of my fashion envy list.  With a wardrobe to die for, this girl knows how to dress!  The likes of Chanel (she is an ambassador), YSL and Stella McCartney are everyday staples for the Russian fashionista.

However, there is more to the street style starlet than you might think.  As Digital Director of TSUM, Russia’s most premium department store (think a modern Harrods), her latest project has called upon street style star Elena Perminov, designer Ulyana Sergeenko and Miroslave herself to take centre stage modelling the stores various AW13 collections.

The finished images look pretty amazing, not that we would expect anything less.  Needless to say the Russian’s have arrived and honestly, they couldn’t look better….

The sun seems to be fading day by day and as the end of August creeps closer, all I can think about is a new A/W13 wardrobe!  Already lusting after several pieces I’ve been racking my brains for ideas of how to raise money – the first being my birthday in just over a weeks time!!  Here are the pieces I’ll be dreaming of on the big day…..

The Met Ball goes PUNK

This year the Met Ball – the most glamourous, fashionable red carpet event of the year, broke the mould; challenged the tradition and went PUNK!!  What better way to celebrate this year’s New York Metropolitan Museum exhibition; ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ than inviting a host of celebrities/fashion legends to dress like an anrchist and stick safety pins through their Versace?!

However, after seeing the pictures I am a little worried about who actually received the memo!?  Sienna Miller looked fierce in her fully studded Burberry Prorsum leather jacket whilst Miranda Kerr accessorised with a dangerously spiky Christian Louboutin clutch and SJP even turned up showing her underwear!!  Special mention for Anne Hathaway who looked amazing debuting a punked up, bleached blonde crop to go with her vintage Valentino, Nicole Richie was definitely the punk princess of the night with Dree Hemingway and Leelee Sobieski rocking their own unique style – both showing true Punk attitude!

As for the guests who decided not to embrace the theme and arrived looking as ball gown perfect as ever….they just didn’t cut it; only the Punked made it onto my favourite’s gallery, these girls got it just right……..
