Chanel Couture Fashion Film, Automn – Hiver 2012

Every little girl has a dream. For some it’s ponies (I fell into this catagory), for others it’s boys. But not-so-little girls have big dreams too. Dreams that include Chanel Couture. Ok, so maybe this is a teeny bit of a generalisation but I challenge anyone NOT to worship at the altar of Karl Lagerfeld after watching this mesmerizing Chanel fashion film by Director, Trevor Undi! Oh to be a millionaire and attend lots of fancy balls…

J.Crew Fall 2012

A few months ago I claimed that I wasn’t going to post any AW12 campaigns as you’ll see them in fash mags and on billboards anyway so what exactly is the point? As you’ve probably noticed, my resolve lasted all of five minutes and once I’d got over my whole ‘summer hasn’t even started I don’t want to think about autumn’ silliness I decided I may as well share them. Of course, my dilly dallying means that most of these shots have been languishing in my inbox for a few weeks so they’re no longer exactly breaking news. But a) you can never see too much of a beautiful image and b) all the campaigns I’ve chosen to feature have had a little something special about them. In the case of labels such as Gap and Tibi it’s been an inspiring choice of model that sets their campaign apart, while Mulberry and Burberry‘s new season shots are just too stunning not to write about. I’d say that the fall 2012 campaign from J.Crew falls somewhere between the two.

LPA Loves… Sephora by OPI

After my A-MAZING bareMinerals make over the other week, I’ve decided to get more ‘in’ to beauty products. After all, I love dressing up and brightly coloured things more than your average five year old so why shouldn’t that extend to my face? Having worn the exact same makeup look for the past two years – powder, mascara and a slick of black liquid eyeliner if I’m feeling really wild – so I’m taking baby steps. Going from basically nothing to full on red carpet glam could very easily go wrong so I’m beginning my induction into the world of all things bright and beautiful via a lower risk route… Nails. In true five year old fashion I’m a total sucker for anything sparkly so when I laid eyes on Sephora and O.P.I’s glitter-tastic nail polish collaboration it went straight to the top of my wish list. Are they or are they not, cute enough to eat?

Diesel host FRIENDS gig and party


I have to say, Diesel certainly know how to show a girl a good time. Cupcakes, prosecco and a live performance from Brooklyn based band-of-the-moment, FRIENDS… Sounds like a recipe for a pretty fab evening, no? Following on from the success of their last private gig and party a couple of weeks ago, Diesel decided to host another stylish soiree this Wednesday.
