Equestrian Gem

Front row from Eudon Choi's A/W 11 show at the Vauxhall Fashion Scout...The collection was beautiful, very wearable with an equestrian twist. I want the whole collection. NOW. Eudon is definitely one to watch. Giddy up. x M

My heart belongs to London at the moment. And maybe David Gandy (who unfortunately is not waiting at home for me tonight.) Definitely maybe next year.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Koma Chameleon

I'm going to pull an all-nighter tonight..and not because I have deadlines or some beautiful man to keep me up. No, I will instead be sitting hunched over my Macbook like an über geek waiting for Topshop's latest designer collaboration with David Koma to hit their website.

I have to say, (controversial as this may be to insult the darling of the masses,) I wasn't a fan of Cheryl Cole wearing a Koma dress on X Factor, in fact anything Cheryl Cole wears is a fashion death knell for me. However if you look beyond the Cheryl effect, Koma's designs are to me what fashion is truly about. 

Beautiful, sculptural and walking art in a dress. Fashion is art, art is fashion, and I like the fashion chameleon effect. One day I can feel like Audrey Hepburn in a tailored lady like dress and the next putting studded pixie boots on and leather trousers, I fuel my inner rock star wife. And I always notice the difference in my mood and persona when I am wearing heels versus battered converse. 

Fashion ultimately should be fun, and feel like dress up everyday. Who wants to take themselves too seriously?! Look at Anna Dello Russo. Granted, walking down Oxford Street in some of the outfits she wears might draw a few looks but ultimately fuck it, who cares as long as you are having a fabulous time whilst doing it. And, I would happily give up my first born to be described as a fashion maniac by Helmut Newton.

So, I will be joining other fashionista's in the digital witching hour frantically pressing refresh and burning a hole in my plastic, to own a piece of Koma...Now I just have to decide which beauty to buy, eenie meenie mo... 

P.s - Fashion month is finally upon us. I am violently happy.

This Is Not A Question

Something that made me smile on my tube journey to work this morning, whilst whiling away the time looking at pretty pictures...and oh so true. Who needs family when you have Céline?

French Fancy

I have been awfully absent from blogging, but Dec was filled with parties and January seems to have disappeared into a blur of work, moving and hibernating. Anyway I am back, from outta space...You know the drill.

So two words for a Wednesday: Pierre Hermé. Selfridges Food Hall. A-mazing. The counter is a riot of colour and each macaroon tastes even better than the first. And the first was heaven incarnate. There goes my pre Fashion Week diet. God, I wish I was French.
