Funky Christmas Gifts!

We all know someone if its yourself, a friend or a family member who either gives of receives a very fun novelty clothing gift! They can be anything to a fun in your face knitted jumper from your Nan or a pair of socks or even a pair of novelty under-ware from your lover! Most of the time you hate them and only ware it for that day before its thrown into the back of your wardrobe! 

This year I received a pair of novelty socks from my Mum theses were knitted but were in fact bought from a shop (Matalan) these shocks were made to look like reindeer Rudolph to be precises they had very nice pink pom pom for the nose, but the real head turner was that they had built in toes this when worn looks very peculiar! Although its strange and kinda weird to look at I just love them and will be wearing them through out the winter season in fact I am wearing them as I sit here writing!
They aren't your everyday fashion statement but I just adore my socks! 

I would just love to know if you got any fun or slightly strange novelty clothing and feel free to upload a picture too!

The Guide to Accessories!

Accessories are one of the most important part of an outfit! It gives it The outfit that little something!
I think that write now chancy oversized jewellery like bangles so so in and I just love them! Also long gold neckless's are very in with quirky things at the end such as bears!

When it comes to bags and every day life then I think a small over the shoulder bag is perfect and is so write now but if you are going out then an oversized clutch bag is the way to go! I think matching your shoes with your accessories is very important and finishes of the out fit perfectly! If you are wearing something classy though stick to the classic elegant neckless and earrings with a couple of brackets will do the trick I think this works the best with Silva then match the shoes with what colour diamonds you have used in the neckless earrings bracket together! If you uses 
this guide you will never go wrong!

Statement Blazer

This seasons are so in and can really make an outfit look sophisticated. Also a blazer can really bring an out fit together and give the outfit an all round look. 

This season a blazer is one of the must have items in your wardrobe, a blazer could also be apart of you party outfit this month for Christmas or new years! One outfit that I think looks fab is a long blue blazer with the arms rolled up to elbows and a pair of short shorts finished of either with a big statement handbag, across the shoulder handbag or even a clutch and a couple of long gold neckless's. 
A great part outfit with a blazer could be a mid length dress (I think it would nice with any colour but i am going with pink this time) with a long black blazer a oversized clutch some killer hills and a long gold neckless again!

Another I just love witch I just adore is the long sparkly blazer with a plain (made silk or even chiffon but it doesn't have to be) top and a pair of sparkly short shorts from witch I think makes a perfect Christmas-ey outfit. This outfit I just found out Nicole Sherzinger is total rocking in black sparkles! 

Wear these with a plain top and some long gold neckless's and then add some chunky bangles and an oversized clutch bag and of course a pair of major killer heels!

Ages and Ages ago I said I would upload the research I did on Yohji Yamamoto work well now I can Finally do it (hopefully it looks okay!) His work is really Inspiring and should really take a look at some of his collections! 

A Day in a Life of a Fashion Designer: Yohji Yamamoto

Few other professions depend so much on keeping on top of fickle popular opinion and watching what competitors produce. The life of a designer is intimately linked to tastes and sensibilities that change at a moment’s notice, and he or she must be able to capitalize on or even better influence those opinions. Designers reflect society’s sensibilities through clothing design. You have to know just about everything that’s been done before so that you can recognize it when it becomes popular again,

A bit about Yohji Yamamoto:

Yohji Yamamoto, born 1943 is an internationally known Japanese fashion designer based in Tokyo and Paris.
Born in Tokyo, Yamamoto graduated from Keio University with a degree in law in 1966. His further studies in fashion design at Bunka Fashion College led to a degree in 1969.
Yamamoto became an influential fashion designer after making his Paris debut in 1981. His commercially successful main lines, Yohji Yamamoto (women/men) and Y's, are especially popular in Tokyo.

Yohji Yamamoto: Career
Yohji Yamamoto is a Japanese designer. He designs and sells contemporary fashions.  

He officially started his career in 1972. 
He Designed  custom clothing Tokyo, from 1970; formed ready-to-wear company, in 1972; showed first collection, in Tokyo, 1976; launched men's line, 1984; Yohji Yamamoto design studio in Tokyo, established, 1988; also opened Paris boutique; collaborated with a film Notebook on Cities and Clothes, Berlin, 1989; signed licensing deal with Patou. His life as a fashion designer isn’t just designing fashions he plans fashions and the runway it’s self. He also adds the finishing touches to other creations and make sure they are up to standard.
She has recently opened an exhibition in the V&A; this is because he is recently opening his first shop in London.  

What makes Yohji Yamamoto’s “his”,
Yohji Yamamoto’s work is contemporary and in way slightly gothic. Most of his work is dark and normally flowing. In this he adds flashes of colour in to it as well.
His label and logo is called Y-3. Which Started in 1972 and debut in Paris in 2003.

Exhibitions, Books, Fashion Shows and Shops
In the Victorian and Albert (V&A) was Yohji Yamamoto’s first solo exhibition. In this exhibition it celebrated the work of Yohji and how he made his work unique. It explains how he uses different sorts of prints, materials and types of clothing to make something different. It also explained how he often didn’t finish of seams and parts of the garment to create an unfinished look. Some of his garments for men were very different in the sense of he used lots of “loud” floral prints and sometimes makes skirts for the man. Yohji Yamamoto also had a number of different exhibitions dedicated to him over the years as well.

Yohji has a few books which help with this research one book had a section dedicated to him in “Modern Menswear” he has also written a auto-biography called “My Dear Bomb” another book he helped with which celebrates his work was called” Fashion Memoir Yohji Yamamoto” .


Yohji has shops all over the world:
·      He has one in London, Conduit Street
·      One in the USA ,Grand St, New York,
·      Also  Antwerp, Belgium
He keeps a set theme throughout his shops as you can see:
Which is very modern and is black and white.

Fashion Shows:

Yohji runs unique and “fun” fashion show that show of his contemporary fashions. He takes part in most of the fashion weeks around the world and puts down new fashions every season. He normally has different themes to his fashion shows but uses similar sorts of styles in away that’s very different.

The Clothes Show Live! 2011

On Wednesday I went to the last day of the clothes show live. This was the last day of the event and most certainly the best day to go. this is because everything you buy is discounted loads it was amazing how cheap things were! even brands like Paul's boutique was discounted soo much! The High light of the day has to be the fashion show! Theme was a night a department store and there was so many great outfits there was also a whole host of celebs like George Lamb, stars of hollyoaks and the boy band from the X-Factor as well as many more! In the main part you can pay very little money (£3-£5) to get gift bags full of make up magazines such as ELLE and every day items. 
In there you can do anything from shopping watching a concert on a smaller stage, eat loads of crap or even having a drink the bar! It really was a great day and would defiantly recommend it for next year!

The Party Season Must Haves!

The party season is finally here and trying to find the perfect part dress is even harder than every this year as there as so many different trends and styles available! I think for this time of year a sparkly dress is very important. 
Some of the styles I just love is the figure hugging dress to really show off your sexy curves! Also floor length dresses are really in and are hitting the red carpet this month more than ever! Another great trend is the pleated flared skirt of the dress lace features are also hitting the high-street every were as a must have feature!  To finish of a fantastic party look you need lots of accessories and a lavish pair of hills and a clutch bag! 

This Dress worn by Taylor  Swift at the american Music awards is a perfect example of a party dress; sparkly, floor length, and body hugging though I think she should have worn a neckless with the strapless look. I think this dress is absolutely amazing!

This dress from oasis is gorgeous with the lace design and the pleated skirt makes it a must have this Christmas!
I just adore this dress with the elegant lace at the top and slightly pleated skirt and the two materials work in harmony with the belt bringing it together this dress is one of my favorites. this dress is from the online shop BooHoo.

This dress from lipsy is embellished body hugging dress showing of those curves with the lace to give it that something else it really is a perfect party dress.

Some of my favorite shoes are from and will go great with the lipsy dress which are also available in black.

Hollister Delights!

I went to the shopping center blue water and one of the places I was eager to go was Hollister there was so much things all really nice things in there that I couldn't get enough of. But one thing that caught my eye was the very wright now knittted cardigan! which I just loved! They sold out fast but I was lucky enough to get the last one! I just love it and I will be wearing all the time! I think if you get it now it would be worth the price as its quite a good investment because you can wearing through out the winter month while being in fashion and being warm at the same time!

Sorry this post was meant to go out a few days ago but i had some technical difficulties and i will be doing another post later today!

WestField Shopping Center

Yesterday I got the C2C train and then the underground to the new WestField in Stratford. I was surprised how small the shopping center was and how there wasn't the three main department stores: Debenhams, BHS and Houses of Frasier. I was happy with the other main shops like New Look, Forever 21, River Island, Topshop, Miss Selfridge,Dorthy Perkins and Holister (Which I didn't go in due to the stupidly long Que to get in!). 
I was also delighted to see their was a few interdependent one off shops which may and I hope will expand!
The Food court was fine but really hard to get a seat and not enough coffee shops for such a busy and I mean busy place!
I didn't buy Much I only bought from new look and I bought:

I also bought a neckless but couldn't find a picture.

Over all WestField was okay but didn't live up to expectations of what they had advertise. It was hard to find your way around and not enough places to eat or grab a coffee. The shops were nice but I was disappointed in the lack of department stores.

Go up and have a look for yourself and tell me what you think!

Versace for H&M

The news is out that Versace has designed a line of clothing and accessories for the high-street shop. I have taken a look and it looks fantastic! 
All the pieces are unique, contemporary and innovative and are perfect for the up coming party season and hits all the main trends this season.  There are lots of fantastic party dresses which would blow away the red carpet press as well as our always favorite classic party dresses! If you are feeling out there then you should try the loud, bright and statement print which are used on the tights tops and other staetment pieces. If you like the rock chick then take a look the fab leather jackets which are all right on trend and I just I love.

Statement Spots

Spots the spots are in this seasons and they are BIG! 

Spots are hitting the high street and there everywhere from top and blouses to well boots, But if used right are fab! Don't over do the spots put on a spotty chiffon blouse with some skinny jeans and a long gold neckless and and spotty hand band tie. Which would look stunning!
