WHAT? THEIR COLOUR THEME IS ALWAYS - BLACK, GOLD AND SILVER...or you thought so...
Givenchy , whenever i hear the word it reminds me of 'Hard Rock, Soft Tailoring and heavily jewelled pieces....that's what Givenchy stands for right? well apparently not ...The couture collection , designed by Riccardo Tisci was rather girly..i dare to say ...and that wasn't all every time i look at the images- other collections keep popping in my head...like the feathered tassel detailed tops, with the sharp tailored suit just screammmmmsssssss ARMANI PRIVE to me.....or the long gowns ( except the ruffle one) are very Versace....or even the gorgeous ' pom pom dyed' dress ..Sonia Rykiel- Fall 2009/Armand Basi ( the pop pom shoes..).
Over all i think its gorgeous but the pieces do remind me of other collections, but then thers only so much you can design ...
I just hope Givenchy go back to their, 'cool' look, as i think it suited the brand better.....( remmember the heavily jeweled head pieces worn at last years collection....amazing...)
normally Givenchy makes my jaw drop , but sadly not this time...my hopes are up for s/s 2011...or is it too late ....OF COURSE NOT !

Enough of the Girl power for a moment..this is for all the blokes out there..you might wonder why I've posted a load of random pictures of very stylish guys, well its because I LOVE what they are wearing ..!
I stayed up till 2am last night 'fiddling with Alexa Chung's, Nicole Richie's and Carrie Bradshaw's wardrobes ' .
This website allows you to make collages out of anything and everything you can possibly think of , they have absolutely all designer and all items on there ( from Chanel, to topshop , h&m,Lanvin, McQueen , .............). You can also add music, text, background or import your own stuff in your little piece of art...this has to be my discovery of the year( with a little help of my friend)..not only it's an amazing time waster, it allows you to get inspired and imagine what styling is really like ,and to be honest girls , it hard !( took me ages to find the perfect black super high shoes for Carrie, i settled for L.A.M.B)

Whilst doing my daily browsing trough ASOS i came across this vintage looking satchel,with the short grab handle and soft crinkle texture it was an instant hit with me.
The best part?It looks so much more expensive than £28!( wouldn't you agree?). Although i already own a satchel that i bought 2 years ago from Topman in Oxford Circus, this one has that rustic fell that i love at the moment. There is a downside though , unlike my topman one this satchel is in faux leather, but it is less than half the price...
This has to be on the top of my wish list for buys next month, i just hope it looks as good in real life as it does in the pictures.
I also spotted these club master retro sunglasses and at only £10! they are sure to keep me happy during the sunny summer days , whether its in England or on my travels abroad.

I'm obsessed with the boho/hippy chic look favoured by the likes of Nicole Richie and the Olsen twins - flowery missoni vintage dress, massive chloe sunglasses, super high 'House of Harlow 1960 shoes' , hair in plaits and braids...and to top it off a vintage Hermes bag( btw the waiting list for hermes is 5 years ).
