Erdem. It's in the detail








Erdem Spring Summer 2012

Erdem is one the greats. Noone can outdo Erdem's prints. Like an expensive garden party filled with ladies and English roses. I think it's the epitome of the image women would like to project - the modern lady.

And Erdem is my fantasy wedding dress designer. Imagine the trails of Erdem lace! *Shudder*

BUT this is my absolute favourite -
not even supermodels can escape the hazards of walking in new shoes..

The Pippa Appeal

Will SOMEONE get this girl a new handbag please?


Pippa Middleton has a favourite bag. You know the one..that tan leather Modalu creation which is now pretty much synonymous with Pips. Unfortunately for her, it's noone else's favourite.

 
So I say to you, what about this Prada Python number? It's in the style of a briefcase, with a long strap and uber smart but BANG on trend

Prada, £3200

Too much? For a more gentle introduction to fashion, what about an upgrade to a Chloe Madeleine leather duffel bag. A far more sophisticated shape and an eye-popping shade of tan.


Chloe, £1250

If in doubt, start a blog..

So all I know about Olivia Palermo is that she likes to mix prints and has a thing for statement necklaces and leather shorts. Oh and she has incredibly shiny hair (seriously, this girl would sell more hairspray than Cheryl ever could). But what does she actually DO? You know, like on a day to day basis..how does she fill the time between breakfast and teatime? Well she's found herself a proper job! 
Well, not quite..

So she's just launched her new blog - surprisingly named oliviapalermo.com - but fear not, she won't have to work those manicured nails too hard! She has hired a team of fifteen staff, including an editor at large and eleven regular contributors, as well as someone to some arty drawings. So it should be more like oliviapalermo-and-other-contributing-editors.com then..



One to add to the reading list?

Beat the shop

This is why I am a firm believer in shopping around before you buy. So I found this gorgeous fox print cashmere scarf..



via net-a-porter.com

But naughty Liberty is charging a WHOOPING £25 more than net-a-porter. Granted net-a-porter charges a ten pound delivery charge (but it's next day with a shiny black box and bow trimmings) and Liberty boasts a prime shopping location..BUT STILL! That's another £25 towards the Boxing day sales fund no?

Let this be a lesson to all you savvy shoppers out there :)

STELLLLA!!

Stella is my kind of girl. If I could choose one girl to open and close my fabulous ready-to-wear collection in Paris..



The finale is an absolute killer. The contrasting print, trim and swirly paisley goodness with nude heels makes my heart sing with joy.

And as for the battle for the best dressed FRONT ROWer..

 Vs.

WHO DO YOU PREFER?




Alaia under 50 quid

Ok I love Alaia. 
Not that I can afford anything that has been touched by its magical fashion wand..however there is a way round this.


You can now have your very own pair of Alaia tights for a bargainous £50!! (Click here to purchase) Or you could buy around 25 pairs of very similar black opaques for the same sum. Maybe I should conduct a tights study. Primark vs. Alaia..on categories including number of bobbles produced and shininess. Hmm..
