I was flicking through the Net-a-porter magazine and came across these items. I love the fresh colours and delicacy of the detail. Definitely fitting for your new spring wardrobe!

Rave all night!

These trousers are great for going out! These 'LumiPants' have LED lights built in so that they glow in the darkness. Now you can stand out in any crowd!

Alexander McQueen S/S 2011

Ooooo I love the new Alexander McQueen clutch bags!!! They include skulls that are typical of McQueen but incorporate a new edge of simplicity and opulence. I love the clutch enveloped in gold leaves which includes a knuckle duster style ring on the top for ease and style when holding the bag. I also love the nature and mortality theme running through the collection, especially these use of twig-like forms on the bags. Sarah Burton has definitely lived up to McQueen's reputation!

Bala-clever!!

As a southern girl living in Leeds, I tend to feel the cold a lot more than my northern friends who are used to the weather. I just came across these new balaclava's which I think are an excellent idea, especially with all the recent snow!
Andrew Salomone has created a balaclava using an electronic knitting machine to create a self-portrait. Now you can keep your face warm and covered while preserving your identity! Perfect!....Although, potential flaw, there are no eyeholes.... Ah who cares if you're warm?!

Vera Wang Spring 2011 collection

So I've always loved Vera Wang's work....like most girls I have fantasised about wearing a beautiful Vera Wang gown on my wedding day! I think it's the ease of femininity that comes from her work and the beauty of the drape and folds of the fabric across the bodies contours that makes her garments so special. The Spring 2011 collection incorporates this again. These are a few of my personal favourites...I wouldn't turn down any of these outfits!!!!

Sale shopping madness!

So i've been working at Next for the sale weekend and it's been hectic to say the least. I started my shift today at 6am and the shop was packed!!! It had been open since 5am! Who are these people who go shopping so early in the morning?!?! I guess it confuses me as I am sooo far from a morning person....

Anyway, I've been working on womenswear and homeware, but primarily menswear. During my shifts today and on christmas eve, I saw a number of lovely products in the sale that I thought I would share with you. Casual elegance....and all in the sale! Bargains!

Karl Lagerfeld's a dreamer too!

Everyone's heard of Karl Lagerfeld's infamous sets to display his latest collection. For the Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 collection, he created a spectacular ornamental garden for his models to promenade around to show off the new garments. The orchestra and setting created a truly magical experience to visualise the clothes in. I love the sophistication of the collection and the use of sheer fabrics to create a more feminine garment. These are a few of my personal highlights....
