Skinny Latte With Extra Cream...

Coffee breaks between work at this time of the year can only lead to two things. Show stalking and online shopping.

The generous 10 minutes is long enough to fill up the shopping cart but unfortunately not long enough to oggle at the slender models strutting down the catwalk of the global Fashion Weeks and carry on serving customers in a calm manor.

The hype at London,Paris, Milan and New York has swamped my twitter with updates from industry intelligence WGSN to aspiring classmates. The tweeters successfully completed an asumptious aim of a) making me incredibly jealous and b) sending me off to net-a-porter to delve into a dreamland of online shopping.

On the plus side, with the sunshine and melting temperatures of SS12 hibernating, focusing on developing my wardrobe into a juicy sunny delight as opposed to a steaming hot chocolate has taken priority over filling my drawers with frilled skirts and fur-fabric mixes.

Here's a taste of some brights that make even the greyest of Brighton sky's look like a Moroccan sunset...

Jet hues.

Despite my previous post, i find my online basket filling up with more and more shades of black.
Surprisingly, over the past few years it has become a colour associated with summer just as much as winter as im sure a lot of you will agree.
Thought id pop on a few of my fav black outfits from past summers...

Dare Devil

Pretty pastels to popping brights, print phenomenon to masculine minimalism. The nineties revival that tried so hard to squeeze its way out two years ago has finally emigrated from the forecasters files and onto the plastic hangers of the high street, injected with fantasy and imagination. This season is shockingly versatile no matter how shallow or deep you paddle into your comfort zone.

Here are a few beauties from across the trends I've got my eyes firmly fixed on...

Perfect with ripped high waited denim shorts and an impressive collection of chains around the neck and a cluster or studs around the wrist (net-a-porter)

The fringe binge continues (River Island)

Utterly fab and perfect with any outfit, any occasion! (Missguided)

I need this. Perfect match with my white denim GAP dungarees i am aching to get out!! (ASOS)
