New Topshop Finds.

New in this week at Topshop there are some beautiful finds. 
I have to say the new shoes in stock are gorgeous from the creepers to the subtle scalloped shoes; which will take you day to night without the painstaking heels.

I suppose I'll have to get saving. 

slightly impractical but still..   Rose Glitter Eyemask By Lilly Lewis For Topshop  £22.00
 I love my jewelery and truly believe it can transform an outfit.
Get feisty with these cute Fang Stud Earrings only £5.00

Update an LBD with this gorgeous orange Double Drop Collar Necklace priced at £15.00
Poppy Red Fit And Flare Vest Tunic would look gorgeous with the matching red velvet boots.
Skater dresses are the must have right now and this fitted dress is only £20.00! 
If you like the colour pink but aren't brave enough to wear it on a night out in the tragic event of looking like a ten year old no fear with this black and pink top. 
Wear the fang earrings with it to give it a rocky edge.
Vanessa Vest by Motel**  for £22.00

 Box Bags are so versatile and ladylike like this Green Contrast Bow Lady Bag.
 It also comes in a coffee colour, however this one is my favourite.
A charming piece at £25.00
 I need these in my life!!  well done Topshop. 
I love scalloped hems and what better idea then MONIQUE Black Scalloped Suede Pumps for £28.00
Flowers are create this season and this Black Daisy Embellished Shell Top for £42.00 is so cute!

Paint it blue with these bold MOTO Cobalt High Waisted Hotpants for £32.00 
 Team these with rolled up chinos or high waisted shorts (alike the pair above) for that indie cool look with these KARMA Off White Patent Lace Up Brothel Creepers are £55.00
I love the red colour for these ARTWORK Red Velvet Lace Up Ankle Boots for £75.00
 Bring that party dress a whole new meaning in this Lace Ballerina Dress by Rare Opulence** 
£158.00 a splurge but an investment none the less..

Beckham for H&M.. David Beckham that is.

Yes you heard it right, David Beckham who has had no experience at designing gets his own body wear range at h&m. 

A very strange choice with his last attempt at a  collection in 2002 failing miserably. The range of children's clothing DB07 for Marks & Spencer failed to take off.

It is expected to be a seasonal collaboration however i do see the pictures of David in underwear being the draw in for customers.

Fair enough Victoria doesn't but I have to give her collection props but not over designers like Sarah Burton, Mary Katrantzou and Giles,etc..

Glamour Magazine Article

However it's all about the Versace collaboration, 
SO excited!

Donatella who had rejected the idea of a diffusion line years ago has state it is an 'Iconic Collection':

"Where Donatella will raid the archives of the Italian fashion house that was founded by her brother Gianni in 1978. "

I have to say the collection looks gorgeous with bright colours and studded leather dresses.

The H&M menswear, womenswear and homeware  which will go on sale on November 17 th (consequently a day after my birthday)

It will be shortly followed by a pre-spring collection that will be available online from January 19th.

 Unlike the Lanvin collaboration the Men will be able to get there Designer tags on.

Fishtail that plait.

I love the Fishtail plait and can now manage it on two minutes.. boom!

(It took me an hour my first go. - Practise DOES make perfect)

First decide your parting, one sided is easiest..
       ..Divide your hair into two bunches (keep in your hands don't bobble),
       ..then take a SMALL section from the left bunch furthest side and wrap under the other bunch then swap.                            ..Take a small section from the far right and cross over to the other bunch carry on wrapping and crossing..
       ..When you have finished secure with a band (any colour you want)
     ..then mess it up with slight backcoming on the ends and tousling to untighten the plait.
   .. then for abit of something extra take the ends of your hair and fold up near the band and secure with a hair grip.

For added oooomphh get the crimpers out and crumpled your roots and ends for catwalk gorgeousness...

Sure mines slightly messy but its sort of 80s one sided grungey cute.
Also, wear a long earring to the opposite side of the plait

I think they look fab and will be wearing them on the beach in zante and sporting them for uni this a/w...

Definatley my new quick fix for hair.

By the way it can make you look seriously young, hence I'm nineteen and look ten.

The voice of Smurfette took to the blue carpet on this kitsch, sparkly and pretty creation.
(Ironically the definition of Katy Perry.)
Can't wait to see the film!

Also what do you think of KP's new blonde locks?
It seems the new craze is blonde. 
Do you think she copied of Cheryl?
