LFW

Basso & Brooke Autumn/Winter 2010
The collection is all graphic prints, I love them but I do feel I wouldn't be able to pull of such a look, especially as most of the material was some sort of descendant from Lycra! oooh not a great look for anyone with some fat underneath their skin.
It was nice to see some colour for such a drab time of year. The dress in the middle (as pictured above) has the most amazing open back and that alone would sell the collection for me definately!

Alexander McQueen Dies


"British fashion designer Alexander McQueen has been found dead after taking his own life.

The 40-year-old committed suicide just three years after his close friend, Isabella Blow - who plucked him from obscurity and helped him become a star - killed herself.

A source at McQueen’s office this afternoon confirmed his death, saying: ‘It is a tragic loss. We are not making a comment at this time out of respect for the McQueen family.’

His death comes just days before the start of London Fashion Week and weeks before he was due to unveil his new collection at Paris Fashion Week on March 9."

Topshop Rant....


When I saw the new Spring/Summer collection for Topshop I was......how do you say.......shocked!

It is by far the most terrible thing I have ever laid my eyes on and it burned my retinas to a cinder! I hate it more than anything in the world! I realise I might be being a tad over dramatic but seriously who is going to wear the above dress? (which is not only see-through which is disgusting in itself but is actually probably the best of the collection) or the below dress which you can see the bottom of the models breasts and she is a size 0 with flat boobs! umm ok...

The whole thing is a disaster and if anyone actually buys this shit I am going to have words! I normally stick up for Topshop but their designers have taken drugs and spun around for a while because small children in pre-school could conjure up better ideas!!!!!!

It's hideous and pretentious and unflattering and NOT NORMAL! I thought Topshop were supposed to be for the everyday fashionista, but I don't care who they are they really should sack the designers on this one! BAD BAD BAD......

rant over!

Emma Watson for People Tree


I think I was expecting something quite different for Emma Watson's new collection at People Tree. This particular dress I feel is the best out of the collection, it has the most flattering shape and also comes in the opposite colour (dark blue with light grey trim).

The rest of collection is quite basic and has a sort of Crew clothing feel but with a younger more appealing take on it.

People Tree are a fair trade organisation who only make their garments in organic fair trade materials.
This does make them somewhat more expensive however not over priced for what they offer. This Moira Contrast trim dress is £45.

See what you think. Please make comments below.
