Apologies


Giles aw12 photograped by me for Avenue 32

Hi my sweetest, I’m sorry that the posting has been slow lately, it is due to the final university project I am wrestling with. Sadly I have keep the posting on the low for the next two weeks. Blogging has never been a stressful thing but the idea of keeping up the dissertation writing and blog postings is become slightly overwhelming for me. I hope you understand but am quite sure you will - I have the best readers, some even in a similar position with me. So on that note a little ‘c u later’ from my part. I’ll try to slide in a few updates every now and then, in the mean time you can always find me on twitter. Oh and one last thing, quite a great thing actually... when I’m done with this final project, prepare for great things because you will from then on have me as a full time blogger.

Much love x

Gingham drops


Spur Japan April 2012

Kind of thinking about getting into big earrings.. these might be a good start. What do you say.. cool or is the cuteness making you nauseous? Visualize it more like picture two and not so much lace gloves and diamonds.

Aldo rise


courtesy of aldo

I’m all for high-street powerhouses teaming up with designers and when it comes to collaborations with up-and-coming, fascinating future talents - even better. And to add a bit more emotion from my part to the mix, we are taking shoes. I applaud Aldo for creating Aldo Rise - a collaboration with a selection of skilled young designers. The collections have been in stores for a few months now so it’s about time I talk you through my favorite picks!

Right now there are four designers collections for sale at Aldo stores worldwide and on Asos. Introducing my favorites.


gina tricot jeans
marni x hm hat
snö bracelet

Pajama striped pointy pumps by J.W Anderson! Please note the amazingly weird ‘rubber fur’. I think after seeing Mr. Anderson's full ss12 collection, pieces fell in to place nicely. There is a sandal version as well that made my decision very hard, but what can I say.. I love pajamas and so does J.W.


preen ‘giffee’ shoes
minimarket dress
lapponia ring

Then there is the printed Preen ones, I could not even dream of having a digital print placed so beautifully on a leather shoe without looking the tiniest bit tacky. Not exactly a shoe you would expect to see on the high-street but then again none of these really are. These have been going ME ME ME lately when I’ve been deciding shoes for my all white outfits. I listen and obey, you should know by now that my shoes are my best friends.


libertine ‘allor’ wedges
zara shirt
alexander wang pants
marni x hm hat

Third pick was the Libertine wedges. A. because I was almost getting uncomfortable with the low-ish heels in the previous ones and B. I still can’t say no to a wedge. A wedge with graphic graffiti-like paint-splatters in it? Long time blog readers already know how I feel about things painted white, ad on a high heel to that and I am a very happy blogger.

And last but certainly not least we have the boys favorite, sexy high pumps by Mark Fast. Probably extra sexy when worn with a bandage dress and mask which is what I did last week, but more about my fetish behavior later. The black shoes with cut-outs reminds me of stockings and are a lot less dramatic in the adorable mint, lilac and beige color that they also come in.

So do you agree with my picks? I would probably say no as I’m quite keen to move on to try every other style in the collections as well. Congratulations Aldo, keep this up and I think we can become were good friends and if you read this text until here you would know that I listen very closely to my friends.

In the process of '5 inch and up for Nelly'


Just came home from a successful launch evening of Nelly UK! I hosted a blogger night where I held a little presentation of my collaborations with Nelly. The most exciting one of them, of course my collection that I've been working on since end of last year. Trying on the samples made me almost tear eyed of joy but when I saw the tags with my little blog name printed on it, it hit me that this is actually happening. Launch planning to take place in August, so exciting and I promise to keep you posted along the way.

Thank you all who came down tonight and to you all for making things like this possible.

Smart packing


For once I managed to pack somewhat smart, I'm spending the next few days in Sweden to work on my Nelly collection! I saw the second batch of samples today and oh my it's exciting!!

I slept for an hour last night and think packing half a sleep was a good thing. Opting for some basics like Diesel jeans, LnA tees, my beloved Phillip Lim and some casual Surface to Air wedges.

Cherry leather

Not only because of the beautiful designs or endorphins the smell of leather gives me, I've fallen in love with London based leather brand Muubaa. My newest wardrobe acquisition is this amazing jacket in distressed cherry leather, do I need to say more?

A few words about neon nails...


photos by Shini

I found a few unposted photos from fashion week and though a few words about that neon yellow nail polish might be in order again. I've talked about it before and it's been popping up on blogs since it came out last summer. It is still a favorite of mine and the subject of question that seems to frequently come up in emails and tweets.

The polish is from the neon range at American apparel and still the best yellow my nails have ever experienced.
