A lesson in daytime sequins


Gala Gonzalez shows us the perfect way to make sequins work for day time - with casual neutral basics and a beanie.  Of course, this perfect shade of dull bronze sequin is always a winner.

Kooples


I'd quite happily spend all my time in these looks from the Fall Winter '12 Kooples lookbook.
Shearling leather, that perfect grey sweater and a split maxi. Oh and that Bardot chic hair finishes the look.

Sequins

































I need some Christmas sparkle.  It is the time of year where you can get away with covering yourself in sequins after all.  This Topshop Unique gold sequin t shirt is perfect.

Street Chic


A pencil skirt with a twist, a long-sleeved body and some classic heeled pumps make the perfect silhouette.
All the better if nude and snake are involved.

Instagram


You've got to love Instagram.  It's great for snapping things on the go for inspiration...or even just things I want to buy, and the new web profiles mean that I can now check my photo moodboard from my laptop as well as mobile.

Leather Peplum

 

So as I was minding my own business doing some Christmas shopping I noticed that H&M have restocked this beauty.  Combining two of my favourite things - leather with a peplum - I am not so sure I can resist second time around...

Glitter and Pink

 
 

Famous for her pink hair that has attracted the likes of Vivienne Westwood and Maybelline, Charlotte Free is the perfect choice for this glitter beauty editorial in Marie Claire UK's December issue.  Pretty!

Leather Love


Cara Delevingne is often spotted around in this leather jacket with the most amazing quilted biker detailing on the arms - and who can blame her. Love!

Style Icon



I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Columbine Smille has the most impeccable sense of style.  She always manages to look chic and cool, and works proportions, textures and colours together perfectly.

Winter Chic



Fur and leather grounded with a simple palette of black, nude and white = winter chic.
A good ankle boot usually finishes off the look to perfection.

Stone Cold Fox

Founded by Californa girls Cydney Morris and Dallas Wand, Stone Cold Fox takes inspiration from vintage designs and brings them up to date with modern cuts, splits and cut outs designed to show off the best parts of a woman's figure.  The result is highly desirable eveningwear which manages to somehow combine an old school glamour feel with an up to date cool.  There are also some great and totally wearable day pieces, like the split polka dot maxi skirt above.

Cydney hand sketches and paints each design idea before it goes into production and every piece is made when ordered, using sandwashed silks, burnout velvets and delicate lace fabrics the girls design and treat themselves.

Check out Cydney's personal blog where she collects together design inspiration.

Winter Fur


Sometimes on those crisp winter days it just seems right to add some colour pop to classic staples of black leather and grey knits, and what better way to do it than with a furry coloured scarf and colour pop bag?

Mulberry Knit


I love this rich purple berry angora knit from Mulberry.  When it comes to winter, I have a serious obsession with fluffy knits.  They look great with everything, especially a tailored look to give it an edge.

And for this Christoper Kane leather and shearling jacket - I have no words...

If you don't already check it out, see What Elle Wears for style inspiration from the staff at UK Elle Magazine.  I'm hooked!

Jon Rafman

I visited the Saatchi Gallery this weekend and saw Jon Rafman's fantastic exhibition, The Nine Eyes of Google Street View, named after the nine lenses mounted on a Google Street View car and featuring weird and wonderful outtakes from around the world.

If you can't make it down to the exhibition, check out Jon Rafman's tumblr here.

White


Still on the lookout for that perfect white jacket.  The problem is, I'm not sure exactly what the perfect one looks like.

I have hat envy - a beige fedora like Gala Ganzalez' is high on my wish list for winter.
