The Gold Studded Leather Jacket

Inspired by: The gold studded leather jacket in Zara, Katie Nehra and studs and spikes! Studded Leather Zara Jacket by ayeshadandizette  For some time now I have been debating whether to purchase Zara’s black leather jacket...the one embellished with gold studs...I am expecting everyone coveting the studded leather jacket trend to know this exact high street version, inspired by LA based designer Katie Nehra’s Simone label. In recent months the Simone leather jackets has become many a celebrity's go to jacket. You barely see Nicole Ritchie in the press without her extreme lapelled studded jacket...in fact she has two, one black one white.  If someone offered to buy me one of these $1080 leather Simone jackets I most certainly would not say no, however, that’s not happening and I happened to have fallen head over heels in love with Zara’s high street rendition.

Inspired by: PRINT-CESS Mary Kantrantzou

Winter Sale Shopping – Essentials

Winter Wardrobe Addendum So...we near Christmas time slowly but surely and the sales are even closer on our heels. If you haven’t completed your winter wardrobe just yet, then the sales are the best time to make your wardrobe addendums. Don’t waste time buying anonymous garments unless you really need them. Polo necks, black t-shirts and vests can always be bought for less than £10 in shops like Zara, Hennes and Primark. There’s no point wasting sale shopping money on garments that remain relatively cheap throughout the season and aren’t making much of a statement. Look out for garments that might be considered a ‘Trend Piece’ that could possibly disappear this time next year. Gucci RTW- a/w 09/10 Sequined embellished garb, Blazers, Leggings and Evening tops - I always refrain from having too much going on on the upper part of my body – particularly in shiny, light reflecting materials, which can risk making you look like a sparkling elephant. I would look...
