Alice Dellal for Chanel

Chanel's latest tantalising campaign has been released, this time for their newest must-have; the Boy Bag. Fronting this luscious piece is the even more luscious, Alice Dellal and may I just say, she's doing it very well.

I'm loving the combination of obvious Chanel charm and 'off-beat Shoreditch kid' that Dellal does so well.

Shot by Karl himself, this is definitely a campaign that I can't stop staring at this week.

A few of my favourite things

I have a fondness of finding out-of-London antique shops and markets for treasure. It's always better to head out of London as you find the best pieces and the prices are so much better (who wants to spend £50 on an apple crate from a vendor on Brick Lane? - not me).

Here are a few of my favourite pieces...

Paint it Black

How much am I loving this mullet-hem dress? Loads, that's how much. I bought it during March's trip to NYC and am currently enjoying wearing it over black jeans by day. 

Here's some Rolling Stones for you, happy Wednesday...

Prada presents: A Therapy

I love it when high fashion and humour come together. From last year's brilliant Lanvin video to Prada's latest short film: A Therapy, which has been released today, what's better than seriously well dressed laughs?


Directed by Roman Polanski

Starring Helena Bonham Carter, Ben Kingsley

So Instagram is about as huge as my love for outlandish clothing (that's a lot). Therefore I won't bother going through the motions of explaining what this is. It's great and that's all I need to say. Here are a few of my Instagram posts (does one call them posts?) from May...

Temperley Ophelia SS12 collection

Today, the news has come that one of my favourite British designers, Alice Temperley is launching a new store in Mayfair. Temperley will open on 27 Bruton Street, in November 2012 and will be six floors of Temperley heaven, playing home to all three collections, ALICE by Temperley, Temperley London and two floors of Temperley Bridal.

Speaking of Temperley Bridal, way back in January (yes this is a tardy post) I was lucky enough to go to the Temperley Bridal press launch of the SS12 collection- Ophelia, and what a collection it was...

I'm lusting after this cape big-time.

View the collection online here.

I have no words to express just how brilliant this is...'s just brilliant.
