"In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different".. Coco Chanel. I shall live and die by this quote. Be who you want to be, not who someone wants you to be, it honestly is the difference between being happy and not. I aim to blog about fashion and all that surrounds it.

KG, Kurts killing me Gently..

London is a place that will always hold secrets in every little corner, it's only recently that my subconscious became conscious as it drew me in rapidly to Kurt Geiger in Covent Garden.. Aladdin's cave for any shoe addict like myself.

I've only ever graced the entrance of the store due to my skittish excited tendencies around all things beautiful but this day. This day I descended the huge staircase into a mirrored wonderland.

Nearly every angle was a mirrored wall, which at first I thought a assistant walked clean through a wall, yet you turn the corner and, WOW. The layout is just beautiful, there's not many other ways you could present such beauties so well. Even the accessories on their tiered cushion pedestals, every little detail was clearly planned.

Cutest little bracelets ever! I really want the bottom one...

Somehow I restrained myself.. Like never before! I left empty handed, yet it haunted me all day and night. If you haven't visited the Covent Garden store, you really must. I know it's been there ages but... I love it!

Meerkat mischief

Just casually perusing through River Island whilst watching telly and these Uber cute pj's are top of my list due to having just turned my white ones pink in the wash!!!   Although I think I may be tempted to wear the jumper in public rather than for bed!!

That's all. Just wanted to share that!    Simples ;)

Have yourself a very merry/yellow Christmas!!

Christmas is coming, with being just over a month away things are are starting to get bright and sparkly! When I was in London the other weekend, the street lights weren't yet about.. But gradually creeping nearer to swarm the night sky like a ten million fire flies....

Anyway, Selfridges was there. Already adorned in its brilliantly vibrant, Pantone 109 yellow, ribbons. All VERY exciting. I love Selfridges windows.. The front is so vast, between each one it's like a guessing game. And then you get to the end, and turn the corner just for the last few!!! This year. Oh god, they're after my own heart, gigantic sleigh sized stilettos, they aren't Louboutins but still they are amazing.

The smallest of details are taken into account, from the tiny train tracks laid amongst the havoc of gifts to the little wooden draws sliding open and closed on mechanical hinges. Tiny glistening reindeers lined up to the stacks of red upholstered stools.

The beauty about Selfridges is that it doesn't just stop at the enticing windows, once you enter the walls I continues to amaze you. From the current displays of designer 'pudsey bears', that may I add, the Burberry one is adorable, to my favourite area of the shoe apartments. Even the enormity of the escalators overwhelm you.

There's a few photos, with a fair bit of glare, my apologies. So you must go and see it all for yourself. You won't be disappointed!

Ps, thanks to the security man that let me take some photos and stepped aside for them! x

Santa's new ride!

Burberry Bear! Too cute.

Coco Lagerfeld..

Recently I was up in town doing my rounds of exhibitions that I had collated up to see, one being the Chanel Little Black Jacket at the Saatchi Gallery. My, was it heaving! Essentially because they were handing out free prints to everyone there as well as free entry!? I was amazed. It's not often you get free entry to amazing designers exhibitions but a freebie too! Resuulltttt

It was great seeing people from so many walks of life in a iconic piece of clothing we know and love. From Sarah Jessica Parker, Kanye West, Anna Wintour. Models, singers, actresses.. They all graced the walls several floors up from the bitterly cold street outside. With little blurbs on the walls and separate rooms holding the surprise of even more beautiful shots pinned delicately to the walls with fine pins.

My favourite area was that of the dimly lit room with huge printed glass panels propped up with spotlights shining directly onto the speckled paint. The creaking from the glass moving as you walked passed admiringly was a little off putting but they looked amazing.

If you didn't see what the Saatchi Gallery held, you really did miss out, but here's a few just for you :)
