2010 Fashion Trend Spotted: Polka dots!!

This perky print has been, ahem, dotted around a few places and is finding its way onto everything from dresses to socks this season!
This long sleeve spot crepe dress can be teamed with a pair of opaque tights and a pair of ballet flats.
Perfect for the breezy days with a pair of tights and cute flats.

I'm not one for hareem trousers but if there I were to ever find myself in a situation where I was wearing a pair, this is the top I would team them with, this and a pair of fabulous heals!

It's Faux!

I have decided that the year of 2010 will be for experimenting more with fashion, normally I just play safe and wear things which I know work for me and people are familiar with.

I've always wanted a leopard print fur coat and think that they can definitely be stylish when combined with the right items of clothing, regardless of what anybody else says!

The oh-so-stylish Alexa Chung fights the freeze in this 3/4 length faux-fur coat.

Other stars that are also following the trend; Nicky Hilton, Mary-Kate Olsen, Kate Moss (from left to right, respectively) and Alexa again!

Layering it up on the runway, Dsquared2 Fall 2009. Who would have thought a printed t-shirt, a plaid shirt, a denim jacket finished off a beautiful cropped leopard print jacket would look so efortlessly chic, certainly not me!

My "IT" bag

Ruched at the sides, 80s esque-chain handles, tassel detail to finish off the look, what more can one need in an "IT" bag. I've officially fallen in love, died and gone to retail heaven.

Hi, Society!

It was a happy day for Gossip Girl fans when Blair and Chuck finally put aside there differences, commitment phobias etc and decided to finally admit they belong together, ahhhh don't they look sweet....

As well as the striking ensamble she has put together -who knew green and yellow could go so well together?! - my attention was immediately focused on the headband she chose to don that afternoon.

Having trouble making out its greatness? Take a closer look....

No doubt it costs a ridiculous amount of money as most of Blair Waldorf's items of clothing/accessories tend to fall in the £5000-£10,000 range, now if your mother happens to be a successfuly in designer in NY then this should not really be perceived as a problem but if you're like me; a poor student with very little money then the words improvise and alternatives should come to mind. Topshop has done just that and it comes at a mere price of £8-00. If Blair Waldorf wasn't fictional, I'm sure she'd approve.

I have found the ultimate winter accessory...

....and it comes in the form of a headband!! Look, look, isn't it just the prettiest thing ever! My mother very cleverly (smart woman that she is) pointed out yesterday that I am somewhat limited when it comes to winter fashion due to the fact that I don't own very many winter clothes. I am normally all for layering a la Olsen twins. now layering is normally fine and keeps me feeling lovely, snug and warm but it's colder than ever now and it's time now to accept that the harsher weather conditions require warmer clothes. So, I have decided that the oh so cute head band will be my first item. With accessories as chic as these, one will probably praying the sun to stay away for as long as possible!

I made a wish and it came true!!!

Evidently (see below) it was only yesterday I was gushing over the lace dresses and feeling slightly bitter about the fact that I had missed out on a lovely purchase. Cry no more, cream lace dresses are back in stock-oh yes!! Hmmmm only problem is, do I *need* more clothes, can my visa card handle another bashing? Ahhh, seize the moment I say, it is Christmas after all....

All That Lace.

Okay, okay, so I guess I'm having to swallow my pride. I think it was early summer when I read that lace was going to be huge fo A/W09, I may have even caught a glimpse of a few items. The laced accessories, I had no problem with. I even contemplated on buying a lace scarf but then never got round to it. The dresses on the otherhand I did not warm to at all, they were just too goth-esque for me, especially black lace. I am now all for lace! The skater dresses topshop have are adorable, team with a pair of opaque tights and cute tan ankle boots and your on your way. I am just a tiny bit upset I missed out on the cream laced skater dress-boooo.
