Trend Watch: Studded Shoes

Studded shoes are a new and up and coming trend that I have started to see come through with the A/W fashion. No longer are studs only associated with rockers and punks but has been incorporated in to fashion in various ways, such as coats, bags and now shoes.

A while a go I did an "I want" post on a pair of Topshop blue studded shoes that I instantly fell in love with, so we all know I am already on board with this trend. But I have searched the rest of the high street to see what is available.

So here are a few of my favs:

Fashion Union Burgundy Kirsty Studded Shoe boots, Miss Selfridge Edge Black Stud Lace Ups.

River Island Black Studded Peep Toe Court Shoes, Topshop Vectra Studded Slippers.

Topshop Piston2 Gold Stud Court Shoes, River Island Studded Platform Heels.

Thursday: What I Am Wearing!

What a glorious day in London we are having! The sun is shining and the weather is... hot!

I am loving it and I finally get to show off my Cuban tan :) and also squeeze in as much summer clothes as I can.

So I am keeping this post short and sweet with what I am wearing today....I even have a little picture for you :).

Today I am wearing a Primark maxi dress that brings out the child in me with a picture of mickey mouse on it, my favourite jewelled sandals that were a present from Ethiopia, my 'work' bag which is a beige and burgundy satchel from Primark and a sleeveless denim jacket from New Look thrown over.

What do you think?

Website Watch: Fashion Union

While I was on holiday I spent most of my time lazing on the beach reading fashion magazines (as you do) so whilst I was flicking through I discovered new websites that I haven't seen before. So today for my website watch I will be looking at the website Fashion Union.

I'm not sure how long this website has been around for, but it seems to be on the up. It carries it's own range as well as other well known brands such as TFNC and Rare. They even have their very own online magazine similar to ASOS. Their collection is great and has this seasons trends at affordable prices... so it is definitely worth a look:

I have gone through the website and picked out the items which have caught my eye. I am particularly loving their range of padded jackets..Enjoy!

Black Hollie Padded Jacket, Black Nicole Buckle Wedge.

Blue Closet Pleated Skirt, Blue Jean Ponti Flare Dress. 

Blue Tess Quilted Coat, Blue Joan Ponti Skirt.

Camel Max C Dress,   Cream Rare One Shoulder Butterfly Dress, 

 Orange Dita Cape Top, Nutmeg Kylie Oversized Star Print Tee.

Pewter Maya Studded Heels, Stone Ella Quilted Jacket.

Jill Sander for Uniqlo (+J)

From the 1st October you will be able to get your hands on the new Jill Sander range for Uniqlo, going by the simple title of +J.

Jill Sander is a well known designer who focuses on the finest materials and luxury items and these are the elements she brings to her Uniqlo collection. She has designed a collection for both men and women featuring everything from coats to accessories. The range as mentioned before has a luxury but comfortable feel to it, at a higher price range than is usual for Uniqlo but when you see the pieces you will understand why.

The quote that goes alongside this collection is "Luxury will be simplicity, purity in design, beauty and comfort for all, quality for the people, basics are the common language, the future is here. +J". I think that says it all!

Here are my favs:

Down Short Parka

Wool Down Coat

Westfields in Stratford City

I am very upset that I missed the grand opening of the new westfield in Stratford, another massive home to all our favourite high street shops and more. I heard it was crazy busy and it took over 4 million pound on its first day. I won't have any time to go and see it, seeing as I am on holiday tomorrow (yippieeeee) but as soon as I get back I will do a full post on the new westfields.

But for now here are some real and artist impressions of the the new westfield... enjoy!

Stylist Magazine: Fashion is Power

Wednesday Wednesday Wednesday....the hump day of the week as they call it, half way there till the weekend. One of the things that brightens up my Wednesday mornings, is picking up a copy of Stylist before I go underground. But this morning to my delight, I was treated with a bigger, glossier, fashion filled issue. Amazing!

I encourage all Londoners to go out and get a copy, because not only is it a great issue but because of the three different 'Fashion is Power' front covers you can collect. On the front cover is the beautiful model Alex Wek rocking the fetish trend and a fabulous fashion spread inside the magazine.

So until you pick up your very own copy (or 3) here are the images from the fetish spread and front covers to wet your appetite...Enjoy!

Campaign Watch: Rihanna for Emporio Armani

Another campaign watch for you to feast your eyes on and this time round it is the 2011/2011 Emporio Armani campaign featuring Rihanna.

Emporio Armani campaigns always follow a similar theme of edgy black and white photos with a well know celebrity fronting the brand, either in their range of underwear or jeans (or both). Rihanna is big at the moment and appeals to many different people, but could also bring in a new market to Armani. In the campaign she is sporting a blonde pixie cut wig, which makes her look very different but still looks good.

Here are some of the images from the campaign...Enjoy!

River Island Beige Leopard Print Bag, River Island Beige Snake Print Cut Out Bag.

 River Island Navy Dog Print Bowler Bag, Topshop Dalmation Print Tassel Bag.

 Topshop Leather Animal Print, Topshop Leather Leopard Clutch.
