Party Feet!

Tomorrow will be my mock birthday as I'm leaving London a few days before my real birthday so I picked the next most suitable date.
Bought some gorgeous shoes to accompany my dress. Photos will be put up but for now, take a look at these beauties:

What you think? Tried to get knockoffs of the Givenchy's in the last collage I posted but this is as close as it gets.

Dream

Autumn is reminiscent of Spring dreams.

Blissful Preference

Strangely drawn to Carolina Herrera's S/S '10 collection it's definitely her colours that make it work for me, it reminds me of being back in Brazil.

My prediction for next season: Even though Maxi dresses were a previous trend, [and I don't think we're in for a revival considering the tailoring we've seen lately] I think the focus for next season will be the jewel colours ala Herrera, generally seen in Winter months, and now to be played off with one piece of neon. [will definitely collage this later today]

My First vlog

Ta-da! I remembered to fill you guys in today with a quick fix of 'whats in my bag'. Tbh the contents of my bag varies on which one I'm using. I have bigger bags which bare more crap in them lol.

Comment please & subscribe to the blog! Yes i do look a hot mess but thank god this isn't a beauty blog otherwise i'd be letting the side down.

Equestrian Winter

Even though the equestrian trend was a major hit last year with the riding hats, crops, boots etc. it seems the style still lingers even in high street fashion.

I'm going to invest in two pairs of boots this month to kick start the Autumn fashion and so I'm thinking for my first pair...should I go horsey?

For a day look the Aldo boots are perfect. I could pull them off with a cable knit jumper dress with wool tights or bring in the harems, silk shirt and black waistcoat [will blog this collage]


So what do u think? Balmain and Givenchy have both done the 'hooded' heeled boot this season but this is the best adaptation I can find to wear at Uni.


Left to right: Balmain Crystal animal-print boots, Givenchy Leather Gaiter ankle boots

Please drop any suggestions should u think theres more to the boot 'hood' fashion I haven't seen!

BLOG APOLOGIES!

I have so much to be sorry about! I have not blogged properly for ages, and when I mean properly, I'm talking Fashion content or any glossy photos for your viewing. This will change believe me, because I'm going through some huge transitions right now, so my blog life has been caught up in the process.

I will be leaving London. I'm now going up North to a little town called Keele to fulfil all my academic dreams. When you're as urbanised as I am the change is too overwhelming, which is why I've had to take time out to conquer the fears of life in the countryside!

I will be living in a house with a few new people, so I'll most definitely be blogging about my new room and the more 'greener' surroundings of Staffordshire. On top of all that; London Fashion Week is happening JUST before I leave, and having put a huge deposit down on the house, I doubt I can afford to attend :( Also, my birthday which is on September 29th has now had to be pushed forward 10days to accommodate the fact that I'm leaving on the 26th.

Below is a few snaps of what my University looks like...I have to have to have to paint the landscape when I get time even though portraits are more my thing.







Back to the subject of fashion: I really wish I was invited to attend London Fashion Week as part of Trade or VIP. Do any of you get invited or know what calibre of person is invited? [minus Celebrities]. i mean it really sucks if you ask me, that Celebs would be invited when half of them don't appreciate the craftsman ship of haute couture/runway fashion! Psh...

Hopefully one day London will recognise me as a blogger worth the invite! Speaking of which lucky Super-bloggers Karla [karlascloset.blogspot.com] and Rumi [fashiontoast.com] were invited to attend NY fashion week, so maybe I just have to step my game up to get where they are...
...mind u being an inconsistent Fashion blogger does not help!


OOOOHHHHHH another big big change in my life...I HAVE A MACBOOK PRO! It's so chic and minimal. Definitely must invest in a big bag for this beauty [will do a follow up blog for this].

Meet MacMurphy:


He's running the new Snow Leopard OS. I feel so Sex & The City but I might retract that if my boyfriend reads this and starts teasing me.

Will promise to Vlog, write and pester your dashboards with my good word.

New Look

So I've been contemplating all summer what I should do with my hair. My boyfriend loves it and like most males he loves the whole long, dark, curly haired look especially because I'm hispanic. However it'snot the case with me: I'm dying for a change whether it be with colour or length or the general style.

HELP ME! Comment me your suggestions based on what u see of my face and style. Post me pictures of celebrity cuts if anything. I really need other peoples help because I'm not comfortable taking the leap without some more female advice.
This is the latest of Moi from Saturday;
