A Picture Speaks a 1000 words

Ahh how excited was I to see Alexa in a new up do, her face looks flawless, but as you trawl down the picture hmmm  the admiration stops.

Her legs appear to be on the verge of snapping off.  I know she has always been a skinny billy, but really this skinny I think not.  I hope the cancellation of It’s On With Alexa hasn’t caused her to forget to eat :-(.  I could even be over reacting but Alexa Alexa Alexa you look beautiful but pleeease sort out the legs.

Stunning Alexa

Invest in a nutritionist or sack the stylist or both?



So Posh is at it again (just this time we care)

A look through any of the fashion mags or even websites the BIG story is VB is wearing ballet shoes.

Ok so if you read her book you would have definitely concluded she was no advocate of ballet pumps, but I am guessing the bunion and 5 inch heels were no longer working for her as she had previously envisioned.

Personally I have never been a fan of VB’s style,  love her hair but find her look very polished and blah, I prefer the rolled out of bed and I still look gorgeous look.  Yet the fact she is wearing pumps is a big deal! And I have to admit I kind of prefer her this way. I just wish she would eat an ounce of fat, would be soo much cheaper than the fillers she will need to fill those hollow cheeks.

But let us not forget when she does casual she does casual well (and is when I fall in love her), and has worn flats before so why is this instance sending the media crazy.

Maybe this is why, we are so used to her looking like this:

Our usual VB

But dont you just LOVE her like this:

The ballet pumps that will send shops going crazy!

Victoria at Wembley looking lovely

Do you think she gives the true flatinistas, Kate, Alexa & Co a run for their money and are we going to see every fashion mag coveting flats as the in thing now/  Even though they have been around for years for any woman who understands the importance of beautiful looking feet 🙂

Do you even care?

Is it a big deal, are you going to trade your heels, or is this simply  media hype ?

Thoughts flatinistas xoxo.

To Wear or Not To Wear The Cycling Short?

So we have reached that point again, the shops swarm in the spring/summer collection when I would say England doesn’t even experience a smidge of Spring until about April, so please keep selling thermals its cold outside!

However, across my winter collection travels, I have been seeing a slight, emergence of cycling shorts, the similar trickle effect I witnessed with playsuits three years ago, so I can sense this one being HUGE not right now, but next summer or even the summer after.  Although the trend is really reminiscent to me of my pedal pushers wearing days  *hangs my head in shame*.

This look is the type of look I think applies to the key phrase ‘wear what suits you, not wants in fashion’ but although most of the cycling shorts I am seeing resemble my old p.e lesson attire , American Apparel and co,  I have seen some really cool fashion forward ones.

Motel was the same brand three years ago that earmarked the best playsuits and I think they have done the same with the cycling shorts.  However as much as I love Motel, I kind of feel they eventually get  lost amongst the Topshop’s of the world once the trend really goes mainstream but hey lets wait and see.

I will definitely be adding this pair to my collection to wear with a baggy tee and wedges for a little drink in a South Beach Bar (oh to dream).  However most on the runway were worn under skirts, so I will be interested to see how us mere mortals transpire this trend.  I know Alexa, Agness and Fearne will be rocking cycling shorts soon with their converses and flats and cannot wait how they add their sense of ‘Britishness’ to the trend.

I am won over by the ones above also, but what about you lot.  Do you think some trends are best left on the runway or will you be coveting your luscious pins in these cycling shorts?  Thoughts stylistas…xoxo

Vogues Best Dressed of 2009

Apart from the end of the year bringing another set of New Year resolutions, further proclamation of who will not be following you into the New Year, the end of the year is always made more exciting by the declarations of the fashion critics’ worst and best dressed.

So how excited was I for my BIGGEST style crush to be crowned Vogues best dressed woman of 2009. I personally couldn’t think of a better candidate. Can you? Love Love Love Alexa’s laid back dressing and style!

However, a couple of shockers from the list:

Cheryl should not have been above Dannii this year.  I guess it kind of shows  that once your the nation’s sweetheart that is where you will remain.  But I am sorry but Dannii trumped Cheryl in the style stakes THIS year, Cheryl has been bringing us the same style since she invested in a proper stylist (still love Cheryl nevertheless).

But the further I got down the list, I realised the absence of two of the most stylist girls to hit the planet.  Even Style.com stated that this decade would have been incomplete without these twins; they put their mark on fashion in a serious way.   So I am a little surprised as to why they did not feature, they should appear every year as their style gets better and better. Do you agree the Vogue list is lacking without these two?

So as Vogue didn’t salute them, I will do so myself:

So heres to another year of sheer fashionolicity.  I am soo excited as to what Alexa and co (and newbies) have up their sleeve for the next year and even decade.  Do you agree with Vogues list?  Do you feel there are people who need sacking or adding to this list? Thoughts please??
