CHANEL COUTURE SS10

Friday, 31 December 2010

Happy 2011! And what better way to bring the New Year in than with a spot of Chanel couture SS10? Obviously this is what I'll be wearing when the clock strikes midnight. Complete with heart-shaped hair.

NEW BOOTS


Yeah, I know, I'm a little late to the party but I finally caved in and bought the Stuart Weitzman 50/50 over-the-knee boots from Russell & Bromley. I needed some sensible boots that weren't my ancient Gap bikers to tempt me from wearing heels every day (not good - especially for my old lady feet).

Here I am (well at least the bottom half of me - I've been lying around sans make-up and wearing nothing but PJs - or at a stylish stretch a men's camel jumper and Isabel Marant harem pants - and eating Guylian praline sea shells for a week. I'm only ready to show my booted legs for now) wearing the bad boys in question with a leather skirt by Zara (sorry Proenza) and an Isabel Marant jacket, the rest of which I will reveal another time.

MISS LUCY LOVES

Monday, 6 December 2010

As you may know, I illustrate on a freelance basis so I'm often scribbling away of an evening on a commission or two. My latest project was rather special indeed, as it was for my pal Lucy and what's more, for the header of her blog, Miss Lucy Loves, which is one of my absolute favourites.

Her blog is a cosy place on the internet where I like to curl up and browse to my heart's content - there's everything from outfit posts to beauty reviews and more. Lucy herself is a total DOLL, by the way - one of those people with beauty AND brains. No fair.

Anyway, thanks Lucy for such an enjoyable commission!
