Golden Globes

3 posts in 2 days! I am good to you! :P Anyways, here is my verdict on the best and worst dressed of the Golden Globes 2011. First off, Dianna Agron (yes, I am a Gleek) in this stunning J. Mendel dress, I always think less is definitely more and this outfit just proves it! There has been a lot of discussion about Sanda Bullock's new hair do, but I personally really like it, I think it makes her look younger, and her dress by Jenny Packham (a safe move as she makes beautiful dresses!) is really nice, a bit of sparkle but not too much that she looks like she is trying too hard. Next up, Eva Longoria, who in my opinion always looks classy, and continues to in this Zac Posen gown, I especially love the neckline, (as me and my flatmate were saying we like necklines like this! :D) Now on to the not so good ones, January Jones what ever possessed you to wear this dress, for me there's just too many cut out section and her boobs look like they will break free at any moment: not a good look. I know it is Versace but just because it's designer doesn't mean its nice! And for the absolute worst dressed of the night is Tilda Swinton in this Jonathan Saunders creation, for me it was the wrong piece to pick from the collection, Drew Barrymore wore a JS dress not too long ago and looked quite nice in it. For me the skirt looks like its not fully finished and they didn't have time to make a top so sent her out in one of her own shirts, it just looks very odd to me!

Birdies :)

River Island - £26.99

Warehouse - £22
Topshop - £10

New Look - £16.99

Warehouse - £65 

Topshop - £7.50

Another big trend that I have seen a lot on recently on the high street is birds! Here are a few pieces I have seen, although this is something I don't think I would buy into I can see it being quite popular, especially, the jewellery as I think it is a cheap way to update an outfit :D



This is my first blog of 2011 and I promise you I will try to post at least once a week (hopefully). As the stores start to get new items in for spring/summer (very exciting!) I have chosen a few of my favourite items and trends that I think will be massive! The main trend that has been on all the catwalks is 70's Style, yes lots of flared denims, tan accessories and boho. I have chosen a few items that I think fit this trend really well! (and of course are super duper nice! :D) The first item I came across was this beautiful pair of tan Topshop wedges, I just think they are beautiful, although they are £65 and will be way too high for a tally like me, they would definitely fit in nicely with the 70's theme, plus the fact that tan goes with anything! The second item is this floral print blouse from New Look at only £19.99, I just think it's really pretty and not only does it fit in with the 70's trend but also the trend for blouses. Even just with a pair of jeans I think a blouse makes a sophisticated outfit! And to finish, this cool jumpsuit from Warehouse priced at £55, I know it's a little bit kooky and takes a certain type of person to pull it off but I do quite like it and they are a simple way to look on-trend. :D
