Vogue Edit Fevrier 2012

I ambitiously bought French Vogue this weekend, armed with my french dictionary app. So far I have got as far as the pictures! Here are my three favourites - Dior, Jil Sander and Hermes. Really getting me excited to go to Paris for fashion week next month!

My friend and I have come up with a new concept, which we will be naming 'treat month'.
We are both shopping / clothes obsessives, but have been known on occasion to make some pretty poor decisions. For her, the poor decisions extend as far as owning approximately 15 plain grey tshirts - but not actually liking any of them - and constantly lusting after a satisfying closet of T by Alexander Wang basics. My issues lie much deeper however. My wardrobe has been described as a charity shop, ridiculous, and plain hilarious to name but a few insults. What can I say, I'm a fan of colour and print, but unfortunately not always of the tasteful kind! I am an impulse shopper, the kind H&M lure in with their vibrant window displays, which in reality would only suit a hipster 14 year old.
Treat month is going to change everything. Our lives will suddenly transform, and we will soon be the chic, sophisticated new generation of fashion superstars we have always wanted to be. Well, unlikely...but I'm sure some long term investment pieces can be no bad thing, right? BASICALLY, the idea works simply.... every second month we buy something really nice as soon as we get paid, and live on a (major) budget for the rest of that month. That way, we will have 6 nice things by the end of the year, and 6 months full of exciting adventures and wild nights out!
All in all, it is a win win situation - liver gets six months of rest from partying for the year, and we get 6 amazing pieces of clothing!

For our trial run of treat month I have short
listed my options below;

What to choose?!

Celine Lust List

Today I spent my Sunday browsing everything I can't afford in Selfridges and at the shops around Bond Street. It has definitely reaffirmed my complete and utter adoration for Celine. If I could only own one thing this season it would without a doubt be the full range of print above. Looks like my H&M copies will unfortunately have to suffice for now!

First Post

Possibly the most daunting part of starting a new blog! But I am going to keep it short and simple (and probably spend too much time obsessing over font colour/size/style than actually writing!).

I have been thinking about writing for a long time now, and have decided to make the most of a cliche new years resolution - to do something productive with my spare time. I would be curious to know how many people sign up to blogger in the first week of January full of good intentions and then never log in again. Not going to lie, I have been a culprit myself and have more than one empty and sad blog URL containing no posts. Not this year's on!

Below, some of my favourite things from 2012 so far:

Michael Kiwanuka - the ideal Sunday morning voice, perfect British soul music.

I have always been a hater of yellow. My wardrobe has never contained even a glimmer of yellow, and this time six months ago I could have confidently said it never would. I think it is time to eat my words...
