Tracy Reese - i love this collection for its knee length socks and its mix of silk and wool. oh and the cute little beanies.
Vivienne Westwood - she is fashion. a little crazy at time, but her draping is insanely good, and i love the big messy hair that went down the catwalk.
Akris - dresses + tights = love. plus the entire collection was a gorgeous array of chocolate, black and wine colours.
Balmain - rock chic all the way. so much sparkly black went down the catwalks this season, but i love how balmain did it
DKNY - red and lots of it. structured tailoring all the way.
Chloe - its like vintage couture. beautiful colours and amazing cuts. a lot more hardcore than chloe usually is.
let me know which is your favorite...
Carolina's shows are always elegant and feminine, and she always improves. Loads of silk, fur, sparkle, cinched waists, 1940s references, chic updos, cigarette pants, dresses, neutral makeup, tailoring, intensely deep colours and black tights.

I took him for a huge run around one of our favorite places nearby, an old settlement/fort, with gorgeous views of the countryside.
he's now in need of a bath, because he ran in so much long grass its got stuck to his coat. he was so worn out, he was breathing really heavily. its nice for dogs to get so much exercise. plus he met up with a couple of other dogs and had a good sniff on the way round.
i took my lovely wimbledons on the walk too :)
it was a gorgeous morning, and the sun was in both blue sky and clouds, on and off. there was a small breeze because the place is quite high up...it was relaxing.
next shoes, topshop leggings, next dress, new look jacket, m&s bag, wimbledon sunglasses

for only £7.50 (!!!!!!!) i bought these 4 things, which should have cost me £80:
oh and the very reason i went into town: my prescription sunglasses, which means i can now see in the sun without having to wear contact lenses. they're wimbledon frames, which are simple, classic and chic (in my opinion!)

I got a delicious cherry pastry, and mum had an apricot danish. Both so delicious :)
I decided that it was about time I tried a macaroon, and so I bought two. One pistachio macaroon, and one raspberry. There were 95p each, bargain! I was not disappointed, I love everything with almonds in it!

of course its no substitute for actually being in a dressing room, but it is fun :)
I went to matalan yesterday too. and there were a lot of shoes that were absolutely amazing. after my neutral shoes post, i found two gorgeous pairs of neutrals. Each pair of shoes cost between £16 and £20. Wowee!
The wedges were the most comfortable, and the black zips the most uncomfortable. I think they are all beautiful, but I know heels will just go towards the back of my wardrobe, because I am already nearly 6ft tall without them!
Which is your favorite pair?

Stella McCartney Mesh Basket Sandals
These are all found on www.net-a-porter.com . I love that site! Yes its all designer, and expensive. But its also very very beautiful :)

Having a great day so far. Had a superbly early night, and woke up pretty late too. Awesome. I feel rested and ready for the day. Got loads to do today, prepping for some kids drama and then actually running the club. Woah.
I have been watching Elle's Street Chic Episodes all morning, as well as some of my other favorite youtube channels. I love these episodes for spying real wearable fashion style.
Hope you are all having a great day!
