A Peek Inside My Closet...

So here's a sneak peek of my wardrobe. Pretty big (a girl can never have too many...everything!) but other blog's have done this post and their wardrobe's make me go green with envy! There's no particular organisation to my wardrobe but I have tops and cardigans etc. in one closet, trousers in another, shorts and leggings etc. below my tops, shoes and boots in a different closet! Spread out but I'm not a one for rumbling through my closet, searching for everything! My ideal wardrobe would be a walk-in one...isn't every girl's though?!!

Tops, skirts, dresses, jackets, jumpers and cardigans
16 pairs of trousers/jeans!
Shorts, jogging bottoms, leggings, hats, scarfs and bikini's!
All my shoes, most of them anyway!
Winter and Autumn boots and shoes.
 A pretty random post but hope you guys enjoyed it!

First New York, Then London and Now Milan!

I'm only into 'high-fashion' to a certain extent, like most people I guess. The key is to just look for easy separates (just buy the top and maybe not the shorts and shoes if it looks too 'high fashion') that would go amazingly great with other pieces in your wardrobe. For example, the brown leather top below by Prada I would pair with a white mini skirt and 60's boots. Sometimes people look at runway fashion and think 'who would wear that, seriously?!'. yes we've all said it at some point but just remember to look for stylish and easy separates. How's everyone's weekend so far?!! Bye guys!

    Watch the Runway Videos Here!

    Next Year (S/S 2012) is all about neon but paired with pastel shades and monochrome. This colour palette is great for those colour-shy people out there! Just try a juicy citrus tank-top with black leather shorts. Or even try floral bloom palazzo's teamed with a black blouse - anyway, get inspiration from the designers you love...

    The Best of the New York Fashion Week - Day 7!

    Oscar de la Renta and Rodarte

    Proenza Schlouler and 3.1 Philip Lim
    J. Mendel and Michael Kors

    Just A Quick Note!

    Don't you just hate getting wet in the rain?! I did, left school early to go to the orthodontist (it was sunny and blue skies then) and suddenly...yes, you get it. So I hid under a tree for a few mins then quickly hurried home. Then my Mum thought my brace appointment was at 2:30 when it was 2:00 so then we were late and well I think you can guess how my day went - oh and not to mention that I'm naturally a frizzy and so after torrential rain and wind, my hair weren't a pretty sight! So in future I'll take my phone, coat and umbrella! But I think a hooded coat is maybe more important (no need for an umbrella then!) than the rest so I decided to look at some of the best coats around and here they are...

    LEVI ' S, £110

    ASOS, £85

    NEW LOOK, £45

    TOPSHOP, £95

    TOPSHOP, £85

    All of these are pretty pricey but If you pick the right one - it'll last forever!

    Yay! I Was Right!

    Earlier in August I posted some photo's of me in monochrome (click here if you haven't seen it!). I don't mean to sound toooooo big headed but...I WAS RIGHT! Yipeeee! I predicted that come mid-season A/W monochrome will be back on the fashion radar. Just casually flicking though, only to come across their page (which is no longer up, that or I can't find it anymore!) on 'celebrities in black and white', and of course I had to click on it and I found loads of pictures of celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez wearing monochrome - I predicted it before they set it! So here's the pictures I came across...

    Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez, Emmy Rossum.
    Diane Kruger, Fearne Cotton, Kate Walsh.
    Lea Michele and two looks from Kourtney Kardashian.
    Taylor Swift, Madonna, Rihanna
    Kristen Stewart, Jessica Szohr, Jaime King.

    Thanks for reading, guys!

    If I had £200 To Spend On I'd Buy...

    Okay, so there's not many garments but there all very expensive. The colours and materials are perfect for Autumn so I'd love to invest in all of these but  I need £200! My favourite garment out of my selection is that stunning Aran Jumper - I''d wear it with a 60's flippy mini skirt and lace-up biker boots for a grunge and chic twist. One last thing, I love wearing bright (summer-coloured) coats as they make me feel happy and bright whereas a dull grey coat in the rain makes your mood grey like the weather!  Anyway, here's my pickieees...

    Sheer Silk Shirt, £75

    Aran jumper, £35

    Red Trench Coat, £60

    Skinny Cargo Pants, £20 (sale price)

    Hmmmm...and with £10 left - perfect! Thanks for reading!
