Barren Metals

I hate the person who said that you shouldn't mix metals. Doesn't collision always make more impact than blending? Gold and silver unite on a simple white and black canvas.

Heart & Sole



Time to discuss footwear. Post links to the most beautiful and awe inspiring shoes you have seen this season, and of course I'll try and beat that!



So far these are the hottest I've seen, but perhaps it's me being lazy!

Sex'd Up Gangbangers

Have any of you seen the new Jay-Z video featuring Kanye and Rihanna? I don't usually commend celebrities because obviously they didn't style themselves but I MUST give menton to the clothes that Rihanna wears. It's more costume / runway clothes rather than Ready-To-Wear, but my GOSH does it look hot! The video and some of the shots of her outfit are below :




I absolutely adore the chain links on that military jacket, and that ring! Omg I'll definitely be looking for it before my birthday....The glasses are hot too but I guess very impracticle, I don't think she can see anything.









Smoking! This shot is bomb.

What do u guys think of this style? And can anybody put a fashion designer on these clothes?

Making Time

Georgia O'Keefe [http://www.okeeffemuseum.org/] is an amazing artist but having studied her last year at my College, I kinda lost the appreciation for the artform of flowers. I've made time to rekindle my interest having taking some photos of my own (: Enjoy + Critique por favor!

I took thee photos with my phone so excuse the shoddy quality but have you ever had that feeling of wanting to take a photo but having no camera around? Well, the cameraphone was a substitute.

This is my favourite pair of booties for this season, it's completely un-winter like with the colours and reminiscent of Stella McCartney's S/S '09 drapery.

Corkboard Inspiration

Wonderful pieces for the coming months, however I would be living under a bridge if I bought them all. DVF is in its finest hour...check out their leggings and dresses. OOoo and I've put my two favourite lip colours for this season in there too <3
