Matthew Williamson Resort 2012

Matthew Williamson's Resort 2012 is to die for. Inspired by the arts and culture of the Far East I am loving how he has combined neon accents with floral & metallic fabrics.
My favourites in the collection have to be the jewel encrusted, feather trimmed dresses and skirts for their ethereal quality. See the complete collection at www.style.com

Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty Exhibit New York

Last week I returned from a week in New York. Whilst there I attended the Alexander McQueen 'Savage Beauty' Exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Seeing McQueens's stunning dresses, shoes and head-dresses in the flesh was a very moving tribute to a true fashion genius. Photos were not allowed inside, however I did manage to sneak a couple before I was caught in the act.

Hot Buy - Christopher Kane Liquid Filled Clutch

I am loving Christopher Kane's Fall/Winter 2011-12 collection especially the coloured liquid filled clutches and dresses. It sort of takes me back to my school days when I had a pencil case just like this complete with a matching purse.

Lust Have: Jack Vartanian Handcuff Bracelet

Who would have thought a pair of handcuffs could be transformed into an object of desire? Well uber stylish jeweler Jack Vartanian has done just that with this fabulous rose gold hand cuff bracelet and pave diamond studded design. A favourite of Super Stylist Rachel Zoe, they don't come cheap, they start at $10,200 for the rose gold to 'price on request' for the diamond one so you may need to rob a bank to get the cash for them, but then why bother when you will be wearing the real thing.....although it won't be a glamorous.

Chic Eats - Papa Bubble Candy

I have such a sweet tooth I am surprised my teeth haven't turned into sugar cubes, that is why I could not resist these cute jars of Papa Bubble candy from their store on Broome St, New York. They don't just look pretty they also taste delicious. Better get an appointment booked at my dentist urgently.

Camilla Skovgaard - Resort 2012

Savvy shoe experts can spot a Camilla Skovgaard serrated sole from a mile away. The sharp, architectural detailing creates an edgy and bold statement that is so distinctively Skovgaard, any imitations wouldn't even come close! For Resort, Skovgaard mixes her signature sky-high pumps and booties with new updates in the form of unique cut outs and woven leather detailing. Her classic platform pumps and lace up booties in shades of grey, burgundy and blue, with the serrated soles of course, will be the perfect compliment to the bright colors and kaleidoscope patterns that dominated the ready-to-wear Resort collections. Though she loves her stiletto pumps and booties, Skovgaard knows that sandals are the footwear of choice for Resort. Our toes will be celebrating the change of seasons as they peep out of her ivory open-toed stiletto bootie or gold caged ankle strap sandal. The highlight of this collection is the "Plait" sandal bootie: with a chunky heel and woven leather detail in shapes of deep burgundy or crisp ivory, these work with everything from Bermuda shorts to boyfriend sweaters. Finally, Skovgaard knows that even the fanciest feet need a pair of flats every now and then. Her flat leather sandals with calf hair detailing are a far cry from casual flip-flips and are just as fierce as her serrated stilettos. The Skovgaard-clad foot was made for walking...and just about everything else! The full collection is available to purchase from www.modaoperandi.com now!!!!!

Delfina Delettrez Jewelry

If you love your jewelry to stand out from the crowd, your go to designer has to be Delfina Delettrez. I love how she manages to make skulls look pretty and skeletal hands look glamorous, her designs are not cheap but they are certainly worth splurging on.
