....Pyjama Party 2

Cardigan - Topshop
T-shirt - H&M
Necklace - H&M
Trousers - H&M
Heels - River Island
Bag - Mulberry Mitzy Tote

….Ahh pyjama pants, so comfortable and extremley confusing to the opposite sex!
I love these trousers, i bought them last summer from H&M, a print that almost makes you go cock-eyed and a gorgeous icy bluey green. (thats a real colour honest)
Whenever i wear them i feel like it looks as though i’m wearing pyjamas, until yesterday i thought i was maybe alone on that thought….that was until two males on two seperate occasions made comments along the lines of – ‘look at her shes got her pyjamas on’
Me and my friend laughed, maybe they thought i would have felt abit silly or embarassed, i was instead kind of pleased with myself! Ahh yes, the joker becomes the joke-e!!!
I highly recommend dabbling in the pyjama look, you might feel liberated, or maybe a little crazy, but either way i’m sure you will be amused by the crazed looks you will receive from the male species :)

...Heaven Sent

....Today saw the end of Couture Fashion Week with Valentino's delightful collection closing the shows. There have been some beautiful collections, from Chanels 150 shades of blue to Valentinos delicate florals...but the real winner for me - Elie Saab
Absolutley divine gowns, elegant, show-stopping, the type that belong on the red carpet.
Heavy beading and embelishment, gorgeous pastel shades and a sheerness that makes them look ethereal.....beautiful!

 Blazer - H&M
Shirt - Ralph Lauren
Jumper - H&M
Trousers - Zara
Bag - Zara
Shoes - Zara


Heels - River Island
Bra - Calvin Klein

....There are certain items which form the foundations of a perfect wardrobe. 
A good basic black bra or should i say a great basic black bra and a pair of black heels, two which are key building blocks needed day in day out by almost every woman.
I acquired two pretty perfect versions of these items recently - a CK bra , a present from my best friend - perfect fit, great under clothes and sooo flattering i want to wear it as a bikini! And a pair of pointed heels which i scored by chance in the sale at River Island. I have a similar white pair from Zara i bought last year and have been searching for a black version ever since, finally i can call off the search!

....Kurt Geiger recently showcased a little taster of their Spring Summer '12 collection in the February issue of British Vogue....and it is divine!
The Ad Campaign featuring supermodel Anja Rubik is also up on their website now, previewing the top pieces for the season ahead.
- Pastels, neons, metal toe caps, prints, bags, shoes, jewellery, the collection ticks all the right boxes for SS12 accessories.
Kurt Geiger seems to have really stepped up its game in recent years, their designs are becoming stronger by the season, they have incorporated bags and jewellery into the mix and their ad campaigns are featured in the likes of Vogue and Elle.
There are definitley a few pieces on my wishlist from the collection...the mint green metal toe mules are everything i want in a summer shoe (I recently posted about the amazing Louis Vuitton pointed mules of a similar design See Here) and the white metal toe design are also high up on my list, i wouldnt mind that small neon pouch too!

....Pitti Uomo

Mens Street Style At Pitti Uomo, Florence

....Pitti Uomo in Florence has kicked off and as always, like clockwork, you can rely on the amazing 'NAM' of StreetFSN blog to provide inspiring street style coverage.
I love Pitti Uomo, it always brings the cream of the crop in mens street style together, like one big catwalk parade of sartorial splendor. 
Its nice to see gentlemen incorporating the AW11 and fresh SS12 trends into their outfits, double breasted suiting, greyscale palettes, heritage style checks, roll neck jumpers and of course their own twist.
Its reassuring to see there are still well dressed gents in the world and maybe it isnt just a thing of the past.
Cant wait to see more coverage, keep em coming NAM! (Head to StreetFsn for more of Day 1)

....I am finally back in business! 
Not having a laptop since Christmas Day has left me feeling like i have been bound and gagged.  I have so much to share and dont really know where to begin.
I guess i should start from where i left off which is the run up to Christmas. 
I had an amazing christmas period, quality time spent with the people that mean the world to me.
I received some amazing gifts and i even splurged on a pretty amazing gift to myself - A treat for working myself to the ground this year. (I will share pics soon, a little clue...her name is Lily)
I am off to Edinburgh for a few days now to celebrate my anniversary with my beau.
