Everyone knows to look to Models to show us how to dress so we look towards the beautiful Jourdan Dunn who looks fabulously thrown together yet polished in Whistles shorts. Again Whistles was the label of choice recently where she picked the ultra luxe jumpsuit. Speaking of Whistles...have you checked out their advent calender??? Every day leading up to Christmas they offer deals & competitions. I've been entering everyday...its so exciting. Who needs a chocolate advent calender when you've got less calories!
Oh how much I love Whistles...let me count the ways....

How Amazing Are These?

These are YSL well named MOHAWK heels, as Tara would say...Fierce!

Oh my goodness is there actually a photo of this girl NOT looking immaculate and super stylish??? Doubt it.

If fronting the campaign for Matches’ own brand Freya was not enough Olivia (& her gorgeous model man) is starring in Mango’s latest photo shoot.

But my ultimate image of her is the Sartorialist pic of her with her Birkin & bike the definitive fashion mix.

Style Icon-Olivia Palermo

From the first episode of The City Olivia stands out in the fashion stakes. We may follow Whitney’s trials and tribulations, but it is Olivia who steals the show.

What I love about Palermo is her ability to ALWAYS look perfectly put together. In a period of thrown together Olivia is a breath of “Fifth Avenue” air.

The Return of the IT bag

Remember the Stam, Spy & the Betty? Well the IT bag has returned. This time round the bags are subtle and classic. The focus is more on design than statement….. time to start saving.

The major two bags of the season are the Fendi Peekaboo & Mulberry’s Alexa.

(Image sources:,,

The Fendi Peekaboo is the silent IT bag, slowly gaining in popularity. It is becoming the fashion insider's favourite. The front rows of A/W 2010 were littered with Karl’s creation.

It is Fendi’s version of the Birkin, which means a Birkin sized price tag, anything from $1,930 to $5,740….ouch!

The Alexa was the hit of last season but the fashion elite can’t get enough. Olivia has been spotted several times with a variety of Alexa’s. I predict that the Alexa will become a classic like the Bayswater, Birkin or Balenciaga motorcycle bag. So I might just have to invest in one soon….

Key pieces of the season: The Cape

No longer reserved for super heroes & little red riding hood, the cape is now the uniform of fashion. It has always been lingering in the background but this season it has propelled into IT status.

The cape dominated on the catwalks, Salvatora Ferragamo, Chloe, Hussein Chalayan, Celine and YSL to name a few. You need only look at the high street versions, (e.g. Topshop) to know that this is going to be a BIG trend.

But the proof of a real trend is seeing if it transcends from the catwalk to the streets. Style street blogs are filled with fashionistas wearing the item mixing it with their own unique style.

For best results ditch the red riding hood look by sticking to neutrals such as the color of the season BEIGE. To be on trend this season wear shorts (if you want to be the ultimate fashionista try leather, not for the faith hearted) and long stockings and boots.

Shoe of the season-DSquared Spine Shoes


The scariest/most fabulous shoe of the season has to these spine heeled shoe. They say that high heels cause major back problems for women and this must be is Dean & Dan’s attempt to poke fun at the medics. But even if your back can take the strain can your wallet? Because these are £1056.08 a pair.

One of the transitional pieces from last A/W the Cape is back with dominance. Whether you want furry, plaid, beige or graphic their is a cape for you.
