The Mode Museum in Antwerp is holding an exhibition celebrating black within clothes. 'BLACK. Masters of Black in Fashion & Costume' examines the many shades of black, it's history with clothes and what it has symbolized through the centuries such as mourning and luxury. Antwerp has a special relationship with black as it was famous in the 16th and 17th century for dying everything black. Featuring Ann Demeulemeester, Olivier Theyskens, Dirk Van Saene, Givenchy (Riccardo Tisci), Chanel and Gareth Pugh.

I love black and even though the sun was shining today and I had a slight urge for a white shirt and blue jeans combo I couldn't do it and the old faithful Black was worn instead in the fashion of a cut up baggy t-shirt and a leather skirt.

So who wants to take a trip with me? x

It's Witchcraft.

I think I have fallen in love with Wildfox all over again. Their Fall 2010 lookbook has this romantic and playful version of The Craft going on. Awkward but beautiful school girls discover their powers and get up to mischief. There is a little story to go with it if you look here. The styling and set design fits in so well with the story and the best thing is there are soooo many photos. No I lie the best thing is that the 'witches' are styled up with Jeffrey Campbell and Litter SF throughout. Their lookbooks always look so much fun. Oh to be involved in them would make me very happy. I hope they bring out a video to go with it like they did for this season.

I Couldn't Help It.

OMG how much do I want this easter egg!

£60! From Hotel Chocolat the The Milk Chocolate Ostrich Easter Egg.

'With two mammoth shells cast in 40% cocoa milk chocolate textured with cookies, crispies and chocolate chunks. Together with a dreamy selection of pecan and macadamia pralines, melt away caramels, solid chocolate slabs and more'

Yes I will be working on easter eating this wearing bunny ears!

It's Nearly Easter!

While all of you are gorging on roasts and chocolate I will be!

Easter this year could be a more fashionable one due to the chic bunny ears that have been since Louis Vuitton AW09 and Maison Michel made popular. I think it took a while for people to catch on but now everybody from Lily Allen to the Olsens, Gaga of course and even Madonna have been out wearing them. The bloggers have done diy jobs...I said that I would but of course didn't! Just last week getting on the tube I sat across from a woman in her mid 30's wearing a white shirt, leather trousers and teeny tiny tuxedo jacket killer heels and a pair of satin bunny ears showing that it isn't just for editorials and the young (madge doesn't count). Tophop have got their own, Maison Michel have a new one for SS10 and I think over the spring people will be a bit brave and there will be lots more bunnies on the streets.

More Bones.

I have been eyeing up this Nicomede Talavera necklace for months convinced I wouldn't show it until I hav made myself a wee copy. However getting hold of real bones of the right size is hard and expensive.

Bony Legs

Nasty Gal always knows what I want.
