Chanel's SS13 Collection

I've been a bit out of the loop over the holiday period, too much turkey and a assignments to finish off! So i was doing my fashion research on vogue's website yesterday and I've fallen in love with Chanel's new couture collection, if you haven't already seen it, it's like you're stepping into a Mid Summer Nights Dream, the contrast of the feminine structured suits and and the floaty dresses to the dark gothic make up and hair accessories is inspiring, especially in such a romantic setting. 

This is my favourite dress from the collection, it looks like a costume from a Shakespeare set, I want it as my wedding dress!

New Year, New Trends

Now I have always been a Summer kind of girl, but I can't help but love winter fashion! Thick fur coats knee high leather boots, I just love it. Now I have been noticing a new winter trend creeping into the high street shops, blue. But not just any blue, Electric blue. It's such a rich colour, originally blue fabric could only be afforded by the monarchy because of the striking colours, it was not easily accessible. Maybe this is why bright blue is seen as so expensive looking and beautiful, especially in satin, I would cover my house in electric blue satin if I could! This is why I love this dress so much...

This dress is from Topshop £56 and well worth it! It looks absolutely stunning on, however I now have nothing to wear it too! But if I were you, I would invest in a lovely blue dress, the colour suits everyone and lets face it, it is beautiful.
