Oversized Tops

I had a real dickhead moment the other day! Check out the song if you don't get me. I noticed Stella McCartneys doing the same oversized top thing. Pretty sure Urban Outfitters has a few going...

Pure Xmas Magic – Artscapes Tops

So the traditional way to get into the Christmas spirit is to wear a cheesy Christmas jumper with Rudolph the Reindeer on it or some snowflakes and a tree etc, and while that is a pretty awesome way to celebrate the festive season, I’ve found another way, namely, an Artscape Christmas edition top.

The tops come with little sequins and added details that give them a sort of 3D effect, not to mention the great mise-en-scène i.e. Rockefeller Christmas Tree. I found the tops on QVC (random night time channel surfing!), and thought they were rather cool in a kitsch-so-awful-they’re-actually-amazing kind of way. Much like those ‘ironic fashion statement’ Christmas jumpers I was talking about in the intro to this post. What do you think?

I could keep copying and pasting for hours but you get my point right. I love them, fashion hotpot.

70s Porn Tache makes a comeback

Guys are rocking 'taches again. The research says that 'the hairiness of manly men is found more attractive during tough times because it appears to symbolise security'.  So, having a moustache during these 'times of austerity' may mean more women for you.  Hehehe...that tickles.


Is Facial hair the new checked shirt?

Have to say - I prefer Prince William with a beard and tache....

80s style perm

New trend alert: Rihanna debuted some new hair last night at the American Music Awards and I’m loving it.  I think this style’s a keeper – do you?

I definitely see overtones of Whitney or Flashdance in this hairstyle plus she’s toned down the fire-engine red and made the hue slightly darker so its not as harsh.

Snoods, Druid Hoods, Hooded Scarfs, Scoofie's - whatever you call them...?

They've been around a year and a half, but snoods etc. are really taking off this winter.  I keep seeing a select few rocking them....Not bad.

Buckles, buckles, buckles

I have a pair of ‘those’ shoes. . . the ones that everyones been going gaga over. I’m talking about the CHloe buckle shoes. Seaofshoes had a pair a while back and i was more than ecstatic to get my hands on my own pair.  My sis has already tried to nick them – not happenning.

Long johns and thermal underwear

The cold snaps had me reaching for my thermals, my merino wool thermals to be exact.  You can pick some up at M&S. Highly recommended.

Beard update!

So June 15th, I was rhapsodising about beards (male facial hair not Katie Holmes) being back in vogue, and All Saints lookbook further proves my point:
