My New Handbag♥

Last week when I was in Belfast, I visited their three floor Primark. Some people may think that I would've gone crazy and bought tons but I actually only bought this bag (because I'm waiting until after my Dukan diet that I started today until I buy new clothes). This bag is literally my favourite bag ever! It can hold so much in it, and looks pretty nice! I don't know what I could ever do without it! And for only £10, it was a bargain! :)

RIP Amy Winehouse 1983-2011

We all know that sadly on the 23rd of July, Miss Amy Winehouse was found dead in her flat in Camden, North London. She will be truly missed but forever remembered for her iconic voice and signature beehive hairdo.

Yesterday, me and my dad went to visit Amy's house in Camden. I have to tell you, the love for this woman was most certainly there! There were loads of people there, and there must have been hundreds of bouquets of flowers and beer bottles and cigarette boxes alongside drawing and messages written on trees and road signs all around the area.

Fall 2011!

Hello you lovely people who have chosen to read my blog! Sorry I haven't blogged in a while but I just celebrated my 14th birthday and I was visiting Belfast for a few days. I got given  around £200 give or take once I've converted the dollars I got from my grandparents in Florida. I would love to spend that on clothes, but I'm saving up for a Lumix G2 camera so I can realise my dream of photography.

I hope you can tell that I'm trying to make my blog a little bit more personal and fun opposed to the reporter-like blogging I've been doing, and please try and give me any constructive criticism/advice on how to make my blog better because that would really mean a lot to me. 

Ok, back to the subject on hand! Fall collections for 2011! 

Layering textures and patterns: Designers mixed different patterns, colours and textures to create a very autumnal but bright and tribal feel to the designers' latest creations. 
Aquilano.Rimondi has played with different textures with the shiny gold material with the swishy frayed material at the bottom, and the jewels make a nice touch.

Bright colours: Bright colours and colour-blocking has been big for quite a while now and will continue to be popular throughout the fall season.

I love this maxi dress from DKNY! It is also a great example of colour-blocking!

Parkas: These are on trend at the moment and are incredibly useful in the cold English weather!
I love this outfit by Moschino Cheap and Chic! I love the dress and the fur hat really makes it exciting!

Multi-coloured furs (faux I hope!): Fur is big this season and it's being mixed with the trend of bright colours as well!
I love this white and red blended fur coat by Prabal Gurung! I love how it matches the dress underneath as well!

Sixties Influences: Most things on the catwalk and on the high street have influences from the year of free love and peace!
This Azzaro dress is beautiful! I love the arms on the dress and the pattern! The bow belt also makes the outfit along with the heels with the ankle strap!

Spotty love: Spotty patterns are totally on trend at the moment!
This Gucci dress is like the flowy blouses on the high street that I love! I love the big bow as well, it really makes the outfit stand out!

Suit and tie event: Tuxedos are the new dresses at prom for the girls! Fashion has taken more of a manly route and have seen fashion shows getting posher!
This girl would be the most fahsionable woman in the office! This outfit by Jason Wu just works and I love it!

All the fashion at the Net-A-Porter party.♥

Online fashion store net-a-porter.com held a party last night to celebrate adding Dolce & Gabbana to their list of designers, to join the many others, including Gucci, ChloĆ©, Burberry, Christian Louboutin and Miu Miu. Here are some of the outfits from the star-studded gust list:

Pixie Lott wore a white crotchet dress, chunky accessories and awesome nail varnish to complement her new short hair.

Alexandra Burke wore a pink crotchet dress, which I like but I would've preferred if it was a bit shorter, but oh well!
Image from sugarscape.com
Kelly Osbourne opted for a tougher look than Alexandra and Pixie by wearing all black.

Jaime Winstone wore this floral dress with those horrid blue velvet shoes and ankle socks. Personally I don't like her outfit at all, except for her hairdo and her earrings.

I absolutely love Bip Ling's outfit!

Pixie Geldof wore this animal print maxi dress, but it just doesn't really look right in my opinion. I'm not sure..

Zara Martin was rocking a country-girl look with this daisy print dress and boots.

Former Sugababe Keisha Buchanan was rocking her curvy figure in a bodycon dress!

Resort 2012.♥

Both established and emerging labels have been designing resort wear collections. If you don't know what a resort wear collection is, it is a collection aimed at high end stores that are sold around Christmas/New Year time aimed for wearing in the warmer climates of the world. Among the 40-something designers adding resort collections to their offerings this year were Prabal Gurung and Joseph Altuzarra. The things to look out for this November time would be tropical prints, pyjama dressing, bright-coloured lace and street-ready swimwear! Here are some of the pickings from designer's resort collections:
