Loves & Lusts




One. Purple enamel skull clasp bangle by Alexander McQueen (£145) The cold weather is coming, and you know what that means, dark evenings, black dresses and a little bit of goth attire (for me anyway.) This bangle is the perfect British addition to a dark British autumn evening.
Two. Dazed & Confused : Making it up as we go along book (Rizzoli).  For their 20th anniversary they’ve decided to make this absolutely crackin’ looking book. Featuring some of my favourites, Chloe Sevigny, Kate Moss and Bjork, the book chronicles Dazed & Confused since the beginning. I bet it’s a visual delight. Want.
Three. Lace Mesh full skirt from Topshop (£40.00) It might be dry clean only but it often baffles me at how many items of clothing I own that are hand wash or non machine washable so it’s a problem I can deal with for this pretty skirt. Romantic and lovely.
Four.  Lace collars. Pretty collars have been everywhere. I particularly love the lace and peter pan ones for autumn/winter. Detachable collars are a god send for little plain dresses. Like jewellery you can mix and match them to change your whole outfit.(Unattributed photo.)
Five.  Nan Goldin for Jimmy Choo. Famous for her raw documentary photos, depicting partying, sex drugs and all that lark, Nan Goldin has moved away from such things for her collaboration with Jimmy Choo. The new ad campaign features  beautiful peacock like colours and similarly beautiful models displaying this seasons shoes.
Six. Blouse on Top Dress from Miss Selfridge (£39.00) Clean, simple, sheer and covered at the same time. Split down the back, can be worn casual or dressed up. Perfect mutli functional dress? Probably.
Seven.  Make up byLOOK magazine. Basically, it’s their job over at LOOK to know what’s in fashion, right? So they’re make up research knowledge is going to be second to none. Now they’ve made their own make up line which starts at £4 for eyeshadow and goes up to £18 for a Glow Kit. The packaging is simple and classic and I can’t wait to try it.
