6 Of The Best Shearlings

I think I'm justified in saying that the Aviator Shearling jacket is the most desired, sought after item for every fashion lovers A/W 2010 wardrobe. And although we would love a Burberry Prorsum Aviator, our purse strings just won't stretch! So after some internet trawling I've found a Shearling for just about every budget.

Black sheepskin flying jacket Topshop £325

Brown leather aviator jacket ASOS £110

Brown faux sheepskin aviator jacket Next £75
Black shearling jacket Aldo £59

Black sheepskin PU flying jacket Topshop £58

Synthetic leather biker jacket Uniqlo £49.99

Outfit Post

When the idea of starting a blog first came to me, i was excited about being able to share my outfit choices with you all and having my outfits on record. But it has been so much harder than i anticipated. As I'm currently living alone i find it hard to have my photos taken. No one seems to be available when required. The above shots were an experiment with my cameras self timer, a mirror and a long arm!

Outfit consists of white vest top (H&M), ex boy's cardigan (Fred Perry), leggings (Primark), headscarf (Charity shop), necklace (Alex Monroe) and ring (YSL)

“Hollywood’s Bling Queen”

Trawling the internet to cure my morning boredom, i came across Melinda Maria's jewellery.
Known as " Hollywood's Bling Queen", Melinda's jewellery is highly popular with many celebrities, including one of Boho style favourites, Vanessa Hudgens. Vanessa is such a fan of the range, she has a ring named after her. The "Vanessa Pod Ring - Blue Topaz" is £65.00 (middle photo). I also love and have seen Vanessa sport the "Mini Pod Bangle - White Diamond CZ" £90.00 each (top photo, shows bangles in bulk).

Melinda's jewellery philosophy is -
"to create beautiful, high quality jewelry that looks real, but is actually fine crafted costume jewelry. High fashion designs, carefully selected materials, and the craftsmanship of some of the best jewelers in the world come together to create stunning pieces that can be worn by celebrities on the red carpet or anytime you want to feel beautiful".

Laid Back Style at the "Big C" Screening

Two of my favourite style icons, Sarah Jessica Parker and Olivia Palermo at a Hamptons screening of a new US TV show "Big C" Sat 07th August. Both are incorporating a piece from my A/W inspirational colour palette - Coral and Khaki. I love the cut of Sarah Jessica's khaki blazer and feel Olivia's coral top is set off by her lush brunette locks. It's great to see them both in flats also, showing you can still be ultra fashionable when not in heels!

Winter Booties!

Every season requires season "Staple's". For A/W, as I've previously mentioned, top of the list is the shearling aviator jacket. But i always have Winter boots. Last year's were -

Office Mahiki Boot £90.00.

And the Next Biker Boot £60.00.

A/W 2010 is all about the Chelsea boot, or riding boot -
ASOS ALESHA Suede Platform Chelsea Boots £65.00.

Next Chocolate Chelsea Clog Shoe Boots £60.00.

I like the fact Next are trying to incorporate two trends into one, the clog and the chelsea boot, but i prefer the over all shape of ASOS's version. I'm still a sucker for a stiletto heel!
