Would you dare?

We've had henna tattoos by Chanel which were largely popular if slightly tinged by the price tag but for many fashionistas one-off by-products of fashion, they have no limit to the cost of the newest trend or style. Dior has attempted to take the concept of affordable and noticeable designer fashion and rework it to make it available to the general/high-st consumer at more reasonable prices. Copying the tattoo concept of Chanel would be flattery at its highest, yet slightly pushing the boundaries of 'cheating by stealing anothers idea'. Next stop: contacts. Contacts?!

Christian Dior has made the bold move to create contacts which can be worn by anyone at a low price for affordable fashion. In a range of up to 3 colours each contact has gold lining with a small CD in the corner of the contact. But, look carefully or you might just pass them by. Can you imagine photographing Alexa Chung wearing these on the front row? Hm...

Interesting, makes food for thought.

Miu Miu

My love for Miu Miu has always been expressed deeply in my blog and this seasons collection is no exception. From the moment I saw Carey Mulligan sporting that gorgeous lilac flowery dress in May at the Met Costume Institute Gala before the collection had even been previewed I knew I had fallen in love with Miu Miu...again.

She looked so chic and cute with her pixie-cropped hair that I automatically knew I had to see more of this collection even if it was just on her.

AND to top this collection off, it has featured on 2 July covers can you believe it? Well I can and I'm not surprised. This months Elle features Lily Allen wearing the purple dress as seen:

I cannot believe they have featured Lily twice this year as their cover star, but she pulls this dress off well and as soon as my Elle arrived last week I was thrilled they had chosen this dress for her.

W magazine also features the yellow/mustard coloured dress on the gorgeous Eva Mendes as shown:

Why are you so amazing Miu Miu?!


ACNE (slight gasp and the following sound of ahhh), the cult swedish design studios of ACNE continue to astound me with their perfect clothes, furniture, shoes.. the list goes on.
Having a slight mad obsession with ACNE as we speak and obsessing over their latest SS10 and AW10 collections. I went to Harrods last week and upon spotting ACNE's section I tried on all the clothes and the shoes as I had seen on Elin Kling of Style by Kling blogger -

So upon seeing them I immediately had to try them on and also screech squeals of delight at the fact that they were in the sale from £570 to £342!! BUT no I couldn't have them. Must get a job first...

I am also obsessed with ACNE's jeans with 3 cleverly placed metal plates over the jean leg.

They don't yet have the jeans up on the website but this is a similar pair found online at

I am now a transformed ACNE lover. They are opening their London store this July 15th and I will be blogging all the way when they open the store which will contain clothes and furniture.

My top 3 favourite pieces of this collection have to be:


Maxi skirt - £380

Sheepskin jacket - £1140


Tie-dye jeans SALE £153

Untill the 15th July, you can buy online at or
