Now We're Talking Fashion....


Nicolas Ghesquiere took the biker jacket to a whole new level for Louis Vuitton this season.
This coat epitomises the meaning of a true visionary ....and this coat is a vision in all its splendour.

Leather coat £5,300




Dior: this is part of Raf Simons final collection for this fashion house and it can be said , he is going out with a BANG!

This fresh and smart collection makes Spring feel edgy, layered and yet light. And those shoes have my name written all over them....

Wool sweater: £930
Cotton dress: £1,750
Patent leather shoes: £850


So grunge and oversized is back....and at the forefront of Hedi Slimane's collection for Saint Laurent...I like this look myself  and am always happy for it's revival.

Mohair sweater : £780
"Faux-georgette" dress : £3,135

There can only be One : 4711

Most of you must remember the one and only original :Eau de Cologne 4711....
My dad used to splash that stuff into his hands and rub them together and the smell still lingers on my mind.

Just like Badedas...remember that blast from the past? Does this bubble bath even still exist?...hmmm...something to look into.

But back to this....4711 has a revival! 
I picked up this little trick from a magazine I read;

"....hairdresser Adam Reed recommends splashing a cotton handkerchief with 4711 and rubbing it on your roots...as an instant refresher and hair cleanser..."

Who would have thought of it!

Apparently it also works wonders if you have overloaded your hair with product...I tend to go a little wild with hair serum on my fringe and it just dries in a clumpy, greasy mess...So rub 4711 into your hair with your hands and it should break the product down.

It apparently can also be used to break down the dye colour stain one tends to get along our hairline .....

To be tested.


One last little tidbit:

Now this I found amusing :....apparently if you are not a dab hand at creating the perfect extended line of eyeliner along your eye...open up your wallet, remove your Amex...and use it to guide you in the right and straight direction....
Any credit card will do...heck even your Harrods rewards card, Waitrose....Boots?...

Here we HOBO again....


We have been down the Hobo path together and in the past...yet in fashion, the past is forever present and what goes around comes around.

Coach brought bag the Hobo bag for this season and I am super jazzed to say that I purchased it in green when I was in NYC at the end of summer....So imagine my unmitigated joy at seeing it in Coach's ad campaign ...

It is a super bag, light and practical and sits oh so snuggly on the shoulder that I don't even have to consider using the over the shoulder strap that can be attached to it....
...to be honest I find the strap to be a little on the slim side, liking a bolder strap to make more of a  statement. The "statement" Coach's wee strap makes... is one of  discomfort and insecurity.

So...moving on to the images:
