I'm such a girl. A big tall girl to be precise. Hovering around 5ft10, possibly more (it's true, I have never measured myself) the first (well, sometimes second) thing I would change about myself is my height. The ability to 'pull anything off' is suppose to be a positive factor of great heights, but not when you have the lumps and bumps that I do : ) My will to be shorter doesn't really encompass the fact that I am practically the same height as the hubby, (he really doesn't mind!) but my will to wear the most lust-worthy shoes without hitting my head on door frames! I often reassure myself that I'm lucky I cannot bring myself to wear or buy the stillettoed sculptures, I must save a small fortune daily, but my do I want to! My resolve is to start low and then the only way is up! So be nice- that's not a wobbly giant, it's just me.

"I like your face, even without make-up"

I woke up to this on a post-it note that my husband had left me knowing I am trying to curb my make-up addiction. Albeilt unsuccessfully. I don't seem able to recognise myself without a bit of colour in my cheeks... and all the rest! Alas, I totally worship at the altar of war paint.

3D technology has quickly moved beyond the darkness of the cinema screens, (despite still seeming like a novelty to me!) and has acquired the backing of fashion giant, Burberry. Formidably bolstered by flourishing sales, the British fashion house has taken the groundbreaking initiative to stream its AutumnWinter10 collection, showing shortly at London Fashion Week, live at selected events in New York, Paris, Dubai, Tokyo and Los Angeles. This incredible news seems advanced to a tech-novice such as myself, but unquestionably incites absolute excitement about the potential of fashion's future. I came across this editorial, which would have blown me away simply for the phenomenal styling and electric hues without the incredible 3D angle. If this is the way magazines are headed, let's hope Burberry reproduce 3D glasses laced with their supreme style.

RaRa, Biker Boots, Leopard Print Socks!

Living in London I spend at least 9 months out of the year yearning for sun. (The fact I brought sandals a couple of weeks ago is ridiculously premature, especially as I never leave home without at least one pair of tights on... but they are so lush!) My defense against the chill (without resorting to chunky knit jumpers that quite frankly leave me looking like The Bulk) is to layer up as many vests, long sleeves, t-shirts and fine knit cardies as I reasonably can, not to forget the tights/leggings/socks/leg warmers/boots combo- trying to keep warm and semi-stylish is enough of a challenge without attempting 'sexy' too! In "pash moments" it almosts becomes comical when layer upon layer is strewn off still without success of discovering a flash of bra. However! In the coming months there will be no problem discovering the fanciful item- in fact you won't be able to miss it, and that is so the point. I am willing for the weather change so I can wear a girly bra top with a boyfriend blazer, alla Berardi, to achieve the fashion irony that tickles me so.
