Of course, dogtooth has filtered down to the high street, with dresses and coats in topshop, new look, reiss, river island, next,wallis and many more. Dogtooth is a great update to your wardrobe, looking retro but modern, and you can't go wrong if you pick just one great piece and let it do the talking.

Moss' collection just seems overpriced and overrated, and yet you know it will all sell out immediately because everyone wants a piece of her.

I have news for you…
The latest trend for men, it seems, is the return of the ‘low cut top’.
What?! I hear you gasp.
Well, having scouted recent magazines, and noticing several guys donning the look on trains, tubes, buses and in clubs in and around Londres, I have noticed a definite influx in the number of men wearing low cut tops. This coincidence was then really brought to my attention in the fashion section of the 21st march 2009 edition of The Independent Magazine, available with The Independent newspaper on Saturdays.
Now, I always find the images very interesting and the models are usually of a very high standard in this particular publication so I usually try to grab a copy when I can, and the edition in question was no disappointment. Plus the model is cute :) - not that this will interest the majority of you men, sorry.
‘Necks generation’, was the title of the spread and the subtitle, “Bare that chest in style with unbuttoned shirts, scoops and giant V-necks”. Trust me, it's going to be hot for summer '09.
(Tops by Lanvin, Burberry, Prada, respectively.)
It’s a good look, in my opinion, but guys, remember to wear your low-cuts with confidence, and please, for the benefit of the ladies, avoid at all costs if you are in possession of a love-rug (we live in the 21st century, hairy chests belong to the 80s era, and aren’t as desirable today). FYI, these tops are also not so flattering on the man-boobs.
If low-cut is what you want, but you don’t have the stomach to flash your chest, accessorise with a light scarf (not a big chain – oh no), or a light jacket with a high collar. The look is complimented well by smart-casual trousers or straight leg/slim fit jeans – not so much with shorts. Aim for low-cut not wide-cut slashed tops, or you may end up looking a bit punk-ish – unless, of course, that is the precise look you’re going for, in which case WAHEY!
It’s summer soon, be happy!
Mei your day be great!

But eventually, after all the pictures of the "new" Jenny in the media, the transformation from Preppy to Punk has taken place this week. The change of Jenny's style is abit too sudden for my liking, and the new look isn't really my taste, but she truly appears individual in GG now. Dressed in plaid shirts, leather jackets, beanies and boots, Jenny now differs from Serena and Blair greatly, looking generally older and more stylish. Now we can just wonder...what style is next?

What do you think of Twenty8Twelve? YAY OR NAY?
What a killer pair of heels will do for an outfit... for your legs... for your confidence...
I'm a sucker for shoes, I have to admit, and not necessarily expensive ones [come on, i'm a student! Let's be realistic here!]. I live by the rule that I can't LOOK for shoes. I usually find the ones I fall in love with by complete accident. The romantic in me would say 'they find me'...
But now I have found myself lusting over a pair of shoes that will soon come to your attention, if they haven't already...
They are RED, they are STILETTOS, and they have been spotted on the feet of Miss Britney Spears...
They are Louboutins... Need I say more?
They are called 'Dillians' and versions of these in snakeskin and metallics featured on the Phillip Lim s/s 09 runway in heeled and flat versions, but to be honest I only really love these red ones...
Oh, to be Britney...
Check them out in their full glory in her new video 'If You Seek Amy' [click title] - about 58 seconds in.
[and the x-rated word play in her lyrics...? - IFF YOU SEE K ME - It's no wonder some radio stations refuse to air it!]
YAY or NAY?
Mei your day be great!

William Rast, the wonderful, wonderful produce of Justin Timberlake, showed it's Fall 09 collection recently at New York fashion week.
Most notably, for some, were the tassled boots for men...
I'm not sure they'll catch on... but the women's boots.....???
OOOOH I think we have a winner!!
This outfit literally makes me swoon!
The monochrome look is classic, and the detailing is feminine, yet edgy. Structured shoulders are pushing their way back in, featuring widely across many catwalks over the international fashion weeks; and this shirt, pulled in at the waist by the fitted skirt balances out the sharpness perfectly. I can't admit to being a fan of the native american tassles that every accessory seems to boast right now, but those boots.... I want!
One of the things I liked most about the mens' collection was the use of length and layering for the tops and shirts. Long black tees formed the staple look, flattering the denim that Rast is quickly becoming popular for, but these long plaid shirts really did catch my attention. Checked shirts have reached their popularity peak, and are beginning to get a bit old, but what a way to revamp the style! In muted and darker tones, William Rast has lengthened the trusty shirt, and created an easy day/night piece, that would look good with most casual/smart trousers or denim. Guys, remember that blazers are making a come-back. Seen on many designers' runways, it's an EASY way to smarten up an outfit for a party or if you're just looking to impress. If you're out to buy, then invest in a well-fitted jacket that sits well on your frame. Don't be afraid to ask advisors for their opinion to see if it fits perfectly - getting a professional opinion to get the right fit is always worthwhile. If you really want to make a statement, a double-breasted blazer jacket is sure to achieve that. Don't worry about it going out of fashion - we all know it will be back in the loop in a few years time!! (just don't put on too much weight in the mean time!) Jackets will always be a necessary and well-used part of a man's wardrobe.
Is JT going to become just as successful in the fashion world?
What do you think of this new collection and the items I've focused on?
YAY or NAY?
Mei your day be great!
