Kate Moss for Longchamp

If you know me, then you will know that I idolise Kate Moss. She is a unique style icon with an ability to wear fashion with the London Look that I try so hard to create.

I recently read a biography on Kate and I know that she has always longed to further her career and move away from modelling, hence the major Topshop deal. Now she has worked with Longchamp and created a bag collection. It is ok. The bags look as though they are made from the most beautiful leather...but that is about it. Still, Kate can do no wrong to me.

PRISM specs

I don't need glasses, my vision is perfect unfortunately. Since the tender age of 7, I have always wanted to wear glasses and I still do. These spectacular spectacles from Prism make me want them even more.

Lethal Puzzle

Everyone loves a puzzle right? Fed up with incomplete puzzles, dull flower pictures and all things grannie- fied? Look no further than SHOW Studio's online store. Wow. There are some real treats on there. Goodies include a gown by Gareth Pugh (2009, £7,500), John Galliano's Union Jack scarf (July 2001, £25,000), the incredible Julie Verhoeven's 'Forget Me Knot' wallpaper (2002, £55) but ultimately what took my fancy was Steven Meisel's jigsaw puzzle. The past Italian Vogue Cover (December 2007) has been sliced into 1000 pieces. There are only 25 available and are priced at £475. Perfect for evenings in with a large glass of red.

Cross Stitch bitch

Cross stitching on the tube on route to work is the only way forward. I am currently creating a Banksy cross stitch. Answers on a postcard if you can guess what it is....

The snow may have melted away for now but don't let that stop you from attending 'Snow Day' at WAH Nails! Snow Day and other Stories is going to be a little solo exhibition held by the fantastically talented Jessica Penfold. See below for an interview with the said lady...I think I will get some Snow Day nails done whilst I am at WAH too...See you on the 21st January.

I heart Ebay

I love Ebay. I could trawl the website day in day out if I could. The bargains that are available now are obscene. If you are considering on selling you beloved vintage numbers to raise extra cash, then DON’T. Not unless you want to make a measly fiver for a fur jacket.

I shopped on Ebay before Christmas and last week my gorgeous shoes arrived in the post. Stuart Weitzman for Russell & Bromley shoes to be precise. They tick all the boxes for major SS10 trends. Cork shoe. Tick. Midi heel. Tick. Studs and diamante. Double tick. The only problem…they are a tinsy bit small. This is the only major flaw with Ebay. No trying on before hand. Anyways…I am gonna squeeze into them and suffer in the name of fashion.

Stuart Weitzman has his own label, full of stupendously high shoes, which are masterpieces. For over 30 years this man has been making and creating shoes to ‘make women happy’. Stu,you have made me super happy. I love my bargainistic shoes. £4.99 you say? Credit crunch bargain hunting done.
