Valentino Valentine?

Image
Ok so I am sat on the sofa watching a few of the runway shows from times gone by and have noticed that when it comes to Valentino I am sure of very few things.
1. Valentino dresses are THE most beautiful dresses in the world. 2. Ever since watching Sex and the City the movie I cannot get the image of the Valentino dress from the Vogue shoot out of my mind 3. I WANT IT!!

So thanks to my search into Spring/Summer 12 welcome to my whole new wish list of Valentino.

If only Valentino could be my Valentine! xoxo

Crazy for paisley

Image
Some might say that Paisley has run it's course but I disagree. Not only is it sweeping the catwalks this season with everybody from Dior to Chloe using Paisley within at least one item of their collections,it is still beautiful!

From Paisley dresses to skirts and mix and match prints to create the quirky geek chic style,you definitely need to get crazy for Paisley!

I am one of those girls who loves coffee table books! The nicer they look the more interesting I find them! I am a regular visitor to Urban outfitters to pick up any fashion or illustration books I can get my hands on. So here are my selected reads :)
Lauren Conrad - Style This is pretty much my bible.  It is my reference for getting dressed, make up..EVERYTHING.  I know a lot of people don't think Lauren Conrad has much say in style but I am a true follower!
Teen Vogue handbook.  What needs to be said? What would Audrey do? This gives an insight into Audrey Hepburns life, giving you the ideas on how to deal with  situation just like Audrey would.
This is the perfect coffee table book. Full to the brim with GORGEOUS illustrations!
Give them a read and you'll see what I mean!
