Neon – the future is bright

I’ve got some great news for you my stylish readers. The future is bright! At least this spring summer in fashion. Remember me going on about yellow being everywhere on the catwalk during last fashion month? Well that wasn’t the only colour that was going to be big. And by big I mean huge! It’s neon! This trend keeps coming back ever since Christoper Kane interpreted it marvellously. I’ve done the hard work for you and found three great dresses in neon pink (what else?). There are in three budgets so there is something for everyone.
Of course one of them, the middle one, is by the man who started it all – Mr. Kane. I love the simplicity of that dress. It’s very versatile and can be dressed up or down for many occasions. You can buy it at Matches for £655.
Number one – on the left – is by McQ by Alexander McQueen. I have seen it many websites, but the cheapest option was at £182. Do shop around as you can save lots of money. Again it is simple but dressier. I love it. And it comes in orange too, if pink isn’t your thing.
Last by not least – on the right – is a very dressy, evening option by Stella McCartney. For £1795 you can buy it at MyTheresa. I am also loving the clutch they styled it with, by the same designer. I have featured it on my blog before.
As you can see, with neon dresses, it’s best to keep the rest simple. Neutral accessories and maybe a bit of gold jewellery is all you need. So how do you like this trend? Are you going to be sporting it?
Have a stylish day.

Party feet – Matches sale

It’s a sign that we’re still deeply in recession, if so many sales are starting before Christmas. Even from many big labels and retailers. But let’s look at the positives. You can treat yourself and save money whils at it! On Friday the Matches sale started and it’s usually a good one. So for my today’s Party feet post I’ve picked the six best shoes I’m lusting over, giving Santa a week to pick the right pair for me. The list includes great nude flats that should be in every woman’s wardrobe, animal print sling-backs by YSL and those pink beauties that are my shoes of the season! Love them, now they’ve been reduced I think I’ll have to buy them no matter what!
Have a stylish day.

McQueen exhibition in London

I am very excited about this! I count myself as one of the biggest Alexander McQueen fans. I so wanted to see his Savage Beauty exhibition at New York’s Met museum I booked flights to NYC in no time. But due to unforeseen circumstance I couldn’t make the trip, therefor missed the record-breaking exhibition. I was sad and to be honest couldn’t understand why it didn’t take place in London (Lee’s home) in the first place. I wasn’t the only one who thought McQueen should be honored here and was glad to find out there are people out there doing their best to bring this must see exhibition here.
One of them is Melanie Rickey the editor-at-large at Grazia Magazine. She started a petition on her blog, that was signed by more that 2000 people so far (me one of them), but that wasn’t it. She did more and it’s all looking positive.
Read all the details here, where you can also sign the petititon. The more signs the better!
So fingers crossed and hopefully we can all see this display of McQueen’s magnificent work in London soon.
Have a stylish day.

Museum of London

It’s no secret, that I love visiting museums and galleries. I find it inspiring, broadening my knowledge and a good way to spend free time. Recently I paid a visit to  the museum of London. As you can probably expect from the name, it’s a museum dedicated to London and its history. It goes back to first world’ war and how has London developed and changed since then. It also looks at its fashion and how it was influenced. I took a few pictures but if you have an opportunity go and see it, because it’s really good.
Have a stylish day.

Mila Kunis – style inspiration

To be honest, before Black Swan, I didn’t know anything about Mila Kunis (shame on me!). But since promoting the Oscar tipped movie and wearing a string of amazing outfits whilst on promoting tour, I took a notice of this beautiful actress. And I have to say at yesterday’s Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, to me, she was the best dressed. And in my top five at Golden Globes. Now I can’t wait to see what she’s going to wear to Oscars. Her red carpet choices very varied and I really like that. Whilst she wore some safe outfits, last night’s Alexander McQueen dress was quite daring and Golden Globes Vera Wang’s green gown was quite playful too. So well done to her. I’m hoping to see more of her off duty looks as well as I wonder what’s her personal style. Stay tuned.
Have a stylish day.

Tribute to the master

I am planning another trip to New York, this time for spring, and was excited to hear about the upcoming exhibition in the MET museum. The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art will honor the memory and vision of the extraordinary talent  Alexander McQueen through a retrospective exhibit opening May 4th 2011. If you read my blog regulary, you probably know that I’m a big fan of his work, and was shocked and deeply saddend by his unexpected suicide earlier this year. I can’t wait to see this 100-piece exhibit, that is promising the show the best of his career, starting at Givenchy, his own  label, and pieces from a show that were revealed after his death (read more about it here). Of course you can expect a review from me after I’ve seen it. For now I’m bringing you a few pics of famous pieces created by the creative genius.
Have a stylish day.

London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week must be one of the most exciting time of year for all fashionistas. New York, Milan, Paris.. they’re all great but there is something about London you won’t find anywhere else. No wonder geniuses like Alexander McQueen and John Galliano all started here. Londoners like to be different, original, quirky, innovative when it comes to fashion.
That’s why I was very excited to be a part of it. Yesterday I had the opportunity to work backstage at Mulberry show and did I enjoy it!! I met the creative director behind the label Emma Hill, who is lovely and really down to earth.
The collection was amazing! I loved the fresh minimal make-up and simple auburny hair. And of course the clothes and accessories!! The new purple animal print Alexa handbag is on my Christmas wishlist.
And the front row didn’t dissapoint either. Among the stars attending were Olivia Palermo, Cat Deely, Alexa Chung to name just a few..
Here are some exclusive backstage pictures and you can see more on my facebook fanpage.
Have a stylish day.
