The Dress!!!


OMG love it, Nicole Richie's Marchesa Wedding Dress.
Not what i expected her to wear; had images of a demure, simple, slightly fitted dress. But she looks like a princess. The high golden bun taking her hair off her face, shows off her natural beauty. They look so genuinely happy, congrats to a great couple.

Fish Pedicure



There is nothing better at the end of a hard days shopping, than some much needed TLC for your feet. So on that note my friend and i visited the much publicised Aqua Sheko "fish therapy concept spa" on Holland Street, London (just off High Street Kensington)
On arrival you are taken over to foot sink, there the staff clean and prep your feet for the fish. You are then led over to your tank. At first the sensation is weird and a little freaky! But once the fish's excitement dies down you can relax and enjoy the tickling sensation as the small fish nibble your dead skin on your feet and ankles.
As we had chosen the deluxe package we had 30mins in the tank then a 15min intense foot massage with oils. The whole experience was wonderful and my feet felt baby skin soft!

Top of the wishlist!


After a long search for a suitable "everyday ring", i have descovered the HEART RING IN 9KT ROSE GOLD by Jordan Askill ($185 Australian dollars). I first came across the ring in the My favourite things: Christine Centerena section on the Jak & Jil blog back in Aug. The jewellery designer is seemingly a close friend of Christine's, the fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar Australia. Santa?!

Dsquared2


Delayed reaction as the show was in Milan on Sep 27th, but i had to comment on Dsquared2's Tom boy, school girl, geek chic look. A style i am personally loving right now.
Designers Dean and Dan Caton sent the models out in round geek glasses and deep tans, the perfect canvas to display there low cut waistcoats, tailored hotpants, dark denim shirts, and pretty summer dresses, some of my favourite picks!

Only The Best From Beckham















Well Victoria Beckham did not disappoint with her fifth collection at New York Fashion Week.

Choosing to present in New York rather than London (as it is closer to home now she lives in America!), Mrs B showcased the collection of 26 dresses to a small gathering in a mansion off fifth avenue, consisting of a few select editors, retailers and stylists.

The Spring Summer 2011 collection has been very well received by fashion critics, perhaps due to the fact she banned the use of size 0 models, making the dresses more representative of the "normal" women's form.

The dresses speak for themselves, a combination of spring like neutrals and bursts of summer brights. The accessories were minimal, not to take away from the dress itself, although there was the introduction of bags. The looks were finished off with Brian Atwood shoes, Victoria's personal favourite.
