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.

Nasty Gal always knows what I want.

There are increasingly more and more people on my facebook that have and always putting up status's encouraging friends to 'ask them anything'.

For those of you that don't know what is, its kind of like twitter but instead of lots status updates people ask you questions and you answer the ones you want to. Basically like a constant interview. The interesting part is that the person asking the questions is anonymous. Ah-ha! Stalkers paradise.

This makes me a little uneasy...lovely people I know have been asked nasty questions or just been given a point blank nasty statement about their lifestyle. Of course nobody has to see that unless they decide to answer. The people I know have bravely decided to answer these prying cowards protected my anonymity. Maybe to put rumours to rest or simply just answer the question, these reasons I don't know.

Now I assume the Formspring people only 'advertise' for people to ask questions about them on facebook and maybe I am beng naive but again assuming all the people you are 'friends' with on facebook would be nice to you then wouldn't it make you wonder who the hell these nasty people are? And also start to wonder who else is thinking the same thing. I mean they probably have had a bitch about it with their mates...and are their mates friends of yours too? For me this could possibly open up a whole new chapter of insecurities...I know we are not suppose to care what people think but deep down no matter how secure I think we all do a little. And we have all done silly things in the past and I have had my fair share and wouldn't want these possibly being brought back up.

I have seen some bloggers do it too, which I can understand. People want to know where they source their information and learn more about their favourite bloggers. I am not sure if any celebs are doing it but I am sure their PR agents will be getting them to do it soon enough.

I thought about doing one for this blog but then then its everybody's game to get the nasties in. Maybe I am being pessimistic or maybe I don't want to know what some idiots might think. Whatever it is I do like it for my own nosy ways. I have yet to ask questions, I just like seeing and being surprised and sometimes shocked at what people ask. I am very curious to see what I would get asked but as for making one myself? EH NAW!

More Please.

I love Tavi, wise well beyond her fashion years, and annoyingly she knows soooo much more than me at only being 13 but as much as I admire her creativity and indivduality in her dress sense, it was more granny than chic. However recent outfit posts by her I am really loving. I want to see more!

Wearing Kingdom Of Style Tee!

Army Dreamers

I have talked about grunge luxe label TV before. Just had a wee look at their s/s10 collection and I want it all! Unfortunatly all the online stocklists have not got them in yet and their online store is in the middle of being set up. Boo!

LOVING a matching set.

Riot Grrrl.

Fraser from Spill asked me to model for his project depicting a typical yet modern riot grrrl fashion sense, the project examines the riot grrrl movement and feminism as well as the lgbt community and how they are discriminated against. Luckily I have some clothes that are riot grrrl-esque.

The Enchanted Palace.

On the 26th of March Kennsington Palace is getting a couture makeover from designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Stephen Jones and William Tempest. The palace will be transformed with installations inspired by the princesses who lived there.

"interactive theatre, intimate storytelling, soundscapes, haunting film projections, and a series of intriguing clues hidden throughout the historic rooms, revealing tales of love and hate, surprise and sadness, secrets and jealousy."

Aminaka Wilmont has created a 'dress of tears' an Vivienne Westood a dress for the rebellious princess and William Tempest's trompe l'oeil dress that will "appear to vanish and merge into its surroundings."

Tickets are £12.50 and it ends Jan 2011.

Who wants to come with me??

Power Dressing

Came across this photo from and editorial from Numéro 86 Sept 2007. I love it, it reminds me of a sexed up super hero and I was reminded of my friend Oliva on the front cover of Bizzare Magazine last year.
