Printed Trouser Lust

I am dying to buy a pair of printed trousers, preferably tailored and ankle length. I think they are the perfect summer staple; if your brave you can wear them with a clashing print, or if like me, your not so brave, a simple white tee. Another thing I love about these trousers is that they come in a full range of prints, shapes and materials suited for all weathers. I'v got my eye on the Whistles pair below (if I win the lottery), or for a cheaper option the ASOS paisley print number!

Elizabeth and James FW 2012

(Images taken from

It's safe to say the Olsen sisters have an eye for style, and their collection for this seasons Elizabeth and James is stunning; I'd wear every single look. I would describe the collection as a modern heritage, mixing quilted leather with sharp tailoring and softer fabrics. The colours make the perfect palette for fall, but I'd wear them any time of the year! Now I just need to save a couple of thousand pounds . .

Item of the Week

Shorts - $18.00 from

I am in love with these shorts, and I think they have been styled perfectly for the look. The delicate lacing and aztec print are the perfect mix for summer, especially when teamed with a neon racer-back vest. This style short was huge last summer and I wasn't able to get my hands on a pair, but I am all for re-living this trend!

Burgundy is my new favourite colour. I recently bought a dress from New Look in this colour, and it was such a good find: it's in a chiffon material, with a detailed open back and long sleeves. I would wear burgundy with colours such as khaki, black, navy and grey, by just adding in a small detail like a bag or some leather shorts (looks amazing when tanned!). And if you can pull off a burgundy lip, go for it!

Winchester Fashion Week

This is the second year WFW has run, and I am lucky enough to be apart of it this year. I am in both the events and journalist team, meaning I have to help plan events from frock swaps to catwalks, and write articles for the up and coming magazine. 
I am also a contributor to WFW's new blog, and my first post is up on the site, so check it out!

Item of the Week

LRD's (from left) - £ 22.50 and £26.00, both from ASOS

I have been lusting over these two LRD's  from ASOS for so long now. They are both the perfect shape that I want, a simple tee with a flared skirt; and I am loving this colour at the moment - its bold, yet that simple shape makes it so it is not too OTT. Now I need to make the decision about which one I want . .

Lea Michele cover for Prestige magazine

Lea Michele looks stunning on this months cover of Prestige, which is mainly due to the gorgeous Dolce & Gabana jewelled corset she is wearing. Michele is always one for looking glamorous on the red carpet, and due to the popularity of Glee she has had many a chance to do so, but I think this corset is more beautiful than most, and suits Michele's petite figure perfectly. 
I'm not going to lie, I am a sucker for cheesy American TV.

Item of the Week

Aztec Bralet - £12.00 from Topshop

This is perfect statement piece to wear on a night out, or under a casual vest for the day. I have recently been looking for new pieces to wear out in the evenings, and I think this would look perfect with a bright skirt (or if you wanted to play it safe, black) and some chunky heels. What's even better is that its only £12!
