DRESS UP YOUR DEUCES

REMEMBER MY POST FROM JULY ABOUT SUPER DESIGNER MELODY EHSANI? WELL, SHE'S BACK WITH ANOTHER ANIMALISTIC CREATION. THE ARMOR-DILLO RING. THIS BABY, AVAILABLE IN GUNMETAL, GOLD OR SILVER, CLEVERLY COMBINES MULTI HINGE DETAIL THAT IS DESIGNED WITH JOINTS THAT BEND WITH YOUR FINGER. IT WOULD WORK SO WELL WITH THAT 'COME HERE' HAND GESTURE HUH!

PLATINUM DIVA

THE 'WHY DON'T WE FALL IN LOVE' SINGER AMERIE, SORRY AMERIIE, NOW SPELT WITH A 'DOUBLE I' HAS DECIDED TO DOUBLE THE HAIR DYE DOSAGE TOO AND OPT FOR A PLATINUM BLONDE HAIR DO. IN A RECENT INTERVIEW WITH RAP-UP.COM SHE EXPLAINED:

“I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO GO PLATINUM BLONDE, AND I FIGURED I’D FINALLY JUST DO IT, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT INSPIRED ME ARE PHOTOS I’VE SEEN OF CHILDREN IN THE SOLOMON ISLANDS. THEY ARE VERY BROWN-SKINNED, AND A LOT OF THEM GROW WHITE-BLONDE HAIR NATURALLY. THE CONTRAST IN DARK SKIN TONE AND EXTREMELY LIGHT HAIR IS REALLY BEAUTIFUL TO ME. SO I JUST WENT FOR IT!”

SO THAT'S THE METHOD BEHIND HER MADNESS! HMM I WONDER HOW I'D LOOK WITH A SPLASHING OF BLONDE...

FOR FEET'S SAKE

SOME OF YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD BY NOW ABOUT THE GLORIOUS NEW SHOE GALLERIES IN LONDON'S SELFRIDGES' AND IF YOU HAVEN'T THEN I SHOULD REALLY HIT YOU WITH MY SHOE - OLD SCHOOL STYLE. BUT REALLY, WITH OVER 4000 SHOES ON DISPLAY FROM OVER 150 BRANDS, IT'S THE BIGGEST SHOE DEPARTMENT IN THE WORLD AND IS SAID TO CHANGE THE WAY YOU SHOP FOR SHOES FOREVER. HMM. RENOWNED ARCHITECT JAMIE FOBERT DID A PRETTY DAZZLING JOB TOO, CREATING AN AREA THAT COMBINES INDULGENCE WITH MASTERFUL CRAFT. COME VISIT, OOH AND AAH, TRY ON SHOES WITH NO OBLIGATION TO BUY - PISS OFF THE SALES ASSISTANTS AND EVEN TAKE YOUR FAVOURITE SHOE OR FRIEND (OR BOTH) INTO THE BOOTH FOR A SOUVENIR SHOE SNAP. 

PS. I HANDPICKED 4 DELECTABLE SHOES FROM KURT GEIGER AND DECIDED TO MAKE THEM A PART OF MY IMAGINARY FASHIONISHA FROZEN YOGHURT COLLECTION. HURRY WHILE STOCKS LAST.

SHE CAN OUT LACE YA

KIM KARDASHIAN WAS SPOTTED SHOPPING (OBVIOUSLY) IN MANHATTAN THE OTHER DAY LITERALLY TIED UP IN A PAIR OF BONDAGE STYLE 'SNAKEBITE LEGGINGS'. SHE TONED DOWN HER DAYTIME DOMINATRIX LOOK WITH A CASUAL BLAZER AND GREY TEE. MAYBE THERE'S A WHIP IN THE BAG FOR WHEN NIGHT FALLS?

IT'S A FASHIONABLE WEEK

THE CELEBRITIES WENT IN TWO BY TWO, HURRAH, HURRAH! NO, I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT NOAH'S ARK, I'M TALKING ABOUT THE LONDON AND NEW YORK FASHION WEEK WHERE ALL OF THESE LOT DON THEIR MOST FASHIONABLE FASHIONS IN THE SAKE OF WELL, FASHION. HERE'S SOME OF MY FAVES - INCLUDING AMBER ROSE IN SOME 'AMBER' COLOURED SHADES, TEAMED WITH A MONOCHROME PRINTED HOUSE OF HOLLAND JUMPSUIT AND DITCHING THE HEELS FOR A PAIR OF NIKE JORDAN'S! WHAT A WAY TO SHAKE UP THE FRONT ROW.

HORRENDOUS EMMA, I THINK NOT

SATURDAY NIGHT AFTER A LEMON MERINGUE PIE COCKTAIL AND ON OUR WAY TO A BIRTHDAY PARTY IN KINGS X, I SPOTTED A YOUNG LADY ON THE PLATFORM IN FULHAM BROADWAY STATION. MY TREND ALERT SIREN WENT OFF AND I NEEDED A SNAP ASAP. IN HER COLOUR OF THE MOMENT CAMEL JACKET WITH CHUNKY SCARF, THROWN OVER AN ANIMAL PRINT JUMPSUIT AND ROPE DETAIL ANKLE BOOTIES, SHE WAS EFFORTLESSLY CUTE, CLASSY AND COSY. HER NAME WAS EMMA AND SHE THOUGHT SHE LOOKED 'HORRENDOUS', ERR NO, MY NAME'S FASHIONISHA AND I THOUGHT SHE LOOKED TREMENDOUS. 

RE-CREATE EMMA'S LOOK (FROM L TO R) RIO ANIMAL PRINT JUMPSUIT AT BOOHOO, PLEATED SWING COAT AT ASOS, CHUNKY KNIT SCARF AT NORDSTROM, AGNES SIDE TASSEL ANKLE BOOTS AT TOPSHOP, AND BLACK CARVED SADDLE BOX BAG AT RIVER ISLAND.

LA BAMBA

I'VE BEEN MEANING TO MENTION, LAST TUESDAY WHEN I SHOULDA BEEN RETIRING TO MY BED I FOUND MYSELF TOTALLY SUCKED INTO THE MOVE 'LA BAMBA' WHERE MUSIC, AMBITION, SUCCESS AND TRAGEDY ALL PLAYED A PART IN THE LIFE OF YOUNG MEXICAN-AMERICAN RICARDO VALENZUELA - BETTER KNOWN AS RITCHIE VALENS. RAISED IN A POVERTY STRICKEN AREA, THE TALENTED SINGER SHOT TO FAME AT JUST 17 AND HAD A STRING OF HITS - ONLY TO DIE PREMATURELY IN THE PLANE CRASH THAT ALSO CLAIMED THE LIFE OF BUDDY HOLLY. YOU KNOW THOSE MOVIES WHERE YOU  KNOW YOU'VE HEARD THE SONGS BUT YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHO SUNG THEM - WELL IT ALL CAME TOGETHER HERE. LA LA LA LA LA LA BAMBA IS A CHILDHOOD FAVOURITE OF MINE THAT STILL GOT ME UP AND DANCING AROUND THE LIVING ROOM WAY AFTER MIDNIGHT. HERE'S A BIT OF A RATTLESNAKE...

MAN SHOE

MENSWEAR INSPIRED GEAR IS TAKING OVER THIS AUTUMN/WINTER AND I GUARANTEE YOU CAN'T STEP OUT WITHOUT SEEING A PAIR OF BROGUES. CHARACTERIZED BY THEIR TOE CAP PATTERN, THEY ARE GENERALLY LOW HEELED AND MADE OF LEATHER. THE CELEBS HAVE KINDLY DEMONSTRATED THAT THEY'RE AVAILABLE IN A WHOLE ASSORTMENT OF COLOURS - I MEAN I OPTED FOR A WARM MUSTARD COLOURED 'KENTISH TOWN' STYLE FROM OFFICE. YOU CAN PAIR THEM WITH A TEA PARTY FLORAL DRESS OR A GEEKED UP, TURNED UP, SKINNY JEAN/TEE COMBO. SHIFT OVER LADS, WE MEAN BUSINESS. NOW EERM, WHERE DID I PUT MY BRIEFCASE...

BATTLE OF THE SEXES

THE STARS LINED UP AT THE NOKIA THEATRE IN LA ON SUNDAY FOR THE EAGERLY AWAITED MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS, BUT WHO STOLE THE SHOW, THE LADIES OR THE GENTS? I GOTTA SAY THE GUYS DIDN'T DISAPPOINT THIS TIME (BAR WILL.I.AM), ALTHOUGH MAYBE I'M BEING A TAD BIASED AS THEY'RE ALL A BUNCH OF CUTIES (BAR WILL.I.AM). I LIKED NICKI'S NUDE JUMPSUIT THE BEST AS THE REST WERE JUST TO FLOUNCY AND FEATHERY FOR MY LIKING AND DRAKE PUT THE MAGIC IN BLACK MAGIC WITH THE NEAT SUIT AND FUN SHOES. IT'S ALL IN THE SHOES YOU SEE, HE GETS POINTS FOR ATTENTION TO DETAIL - SOMETIMES YOU JUST GOTTA WORK FROM THE BOTTOM UP!

FREAKY TRAINERS ON FREAKER MAG

THE CUTE AND QUIRKY JEREMY SCOTT TEDDY BEAR TRAINERS I BLOGGED ABOUT BACK IN JULY HAVE MADE THE SNEAKER FREAKER MAGAZINE COVER THIS MONTH. THEY CERTAINLY MAKE AN EXCITING STATEMENT (IN TRUE JS STYLE) AND I'M SURE WE'LL SEE THEM IN A MUSIC VIDEO/FASHION SHOOT ON A 'COOL' PAIR OF FEET SOON. BUT THIS COVER MAN,  I WANNA BLOW IT UP AND HANG IT ON MY WALL, WHAT FUN. 

AVIATION NATION

IF YOU ONLY BUY ONE JACKET THIS SEASON, I’VE HEARD IT SHOULD BE AN AVIATOR JACKET. LIKE A LEATHER FLIGHT JACKET, BUT REDEVELOPED WITH THE ADDED COOL (AND COSINESS) OF A SHEARLING COLLAR, THIS IS THE JACKET THAT’S ON THE FASHIONISHA ‘WINTER CHILL’ WISH LIST. BRRR. WE CAN THANK BURBERRY FOR SHOWCASING THIS TREND HEAVILY ON THE FALL 2010 RUNWAYS AND THE HIGH STREETS ARE NOW FULLY STOCKED. FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, TOPSHOP £325, UNIQLO £49.99, AND MATALAN £30 - ALSO MISS SELFRIDGE HAS A FUR VARIATION FOR £60. THINK TOM CRUISE TOP GUN AND TAKE FLIGHT!

ANOTHER NIGHT OUT, ANOTHER AA POLISH

THIS TIME IT'S AMERICAN APPAREL'S 'MALIBU' SHADE, WHICH I THOUGHT WAS TOTALLY FRESH AND TROPICAL. TOOK IT OUT ON MY TOES OVER THE CARNIVAL BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND (HOW CONVENIENT) ALTHOUGH I DIDN'T QUITE MAKE IT TO THE NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL (HOW SAD). TO MAKE UP FOR IT I FOUND A SIZZLING COMPLEMENTARY PHOTO OF BEYONCÉ AND ALICIA IN RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL, SHOOTING THEIR YET TO BE RELEASED 'PUT IT IN A LOVE SONG' VIDEO. THEY'VE DEFINITELY GOT THAT TRADITIONAL CARNIVAL STYLING GOING ON AND I'M LOVING ALICIA'S DRESS WITH THE BIBLICAL REFERENCE OF THE VIRGIN MARY ACROSS THE BACK. AMEN TO THAT.

THROW IT IN THIS BAG

IF YOU'RE A REGULAR READER YOU SHOULD KNOW BY NOW THAT I LIKE ME SOME JEREMY SCOTT AND THIS PLAQUE BAG IS NO EXCEPTION. ONE WORD, ADORE. CHAIN HANDLE AS STANDARD, SOUNDS LIKE I'M SELLING YOU A CAR, THIS IS AN INSTANT STUNNER. EVEN THOUGH THE LOGO IS SPLATTERED ALL OVER, IT DOESN'T ACTUALLY SCREAM 'LABEL JUNKIE' BUT RATHER JUST ADDS PERSONALITY TO A RATHER SIMPLE BAG. HEY I'VE GOTTA SAY, IT'S A BAG WITH BAGS OF PERSONALITY.
