Fashion Fix..and Me!

Ok so it’s taken forever for me to move house (I have a lot of shoes..!) and get my internet sorted (multiple trips and conversations to clueless B&Q, Comet & PC World staff) and just as it was getting sorted, I went and fractured my elbow. Personally, I blame The Boy. Yes, the same The Boy from way back when. Safe to say its been a roller coaster few weeks, but now the dust has settled and I shall firstly impart (some) wisdom and (mostly) observations from my chaotic weeks:

* Iceskating is not fun and harmless, you could end up fracturing an elbow!!
* Cute doctors do exist. No, not cute, make that scorchingly hot doctors.
* Perhaps, just maybe, it might be time to give flats a while again
* I feel allergic to black again, bring on summer brights!
* In fact just bring on summer, I’m shivering as I type

* Rabbit also like eating Oreo cookies and party rings!

Ok enough of that, and onto some real stuff. My new job is going great, online marketing for one of the top retailers in the world, so not too shabby if I say so myself! New place is going well too, have run out of clothes/shoe room but have ordered more addition to the 2 wardrobes and 2 chests of drawers I’m currently using. So all in all, ticking along nicely despite a couple of huge blips. I have missed you all, and have missed blogging and tweeting tremendously so I’m probably going to over-blog to make up for it! And, no time like the present right?! So here’s a probably slightly random Fashion Fix, while I find my blogging feet again. But fear not, there will be more to come pretty much everyday this week, including pictures from the Chanel Fall 09 campaign!

V-ow Magazine editorial

I think it’s from a V Magazine editorial, with Kate, Natalia, Claudia and Daria. The images have stunned me…Kate kills it in the Margiela jacket.

V Man’s also got it goin on…

Ashley Olsen is an editorial for V Man, looking sultry and sexy and a brunette!

Agy stars in Uniqlo campaign

To be honest, I couldn’t care less about Agy, really not my most favourite model. The shots are alright, nothing more nothing less. Do any of you disagree?

Iman Ostracised.

“I did feel a bit ostracized. You suddenly represent a whole race, and that race goes, ‘Well, that person does not represent our ideals of beauty.’ For lack of a better term, it becomes what it was like during slavery. One had the field n— and the house n—. There was this notion that I was chosen by white fashion editors to be better than the rest, which I am not. I did not like being thought of as the house n— whether it was spoken or whether it was understood. It always left a bad taste in my mouth. I call it ‘the politics of beauty’ because fashion can sometimes be an assault on one’s identity.” Iman

In Brief:

Move over Sienna: Apparently Sienna’s status as Matthew Williamson’s muse is over, Leigh Lezark is the new muse on the block.

Fiction about ‘reality’: Lauren Conrad has a new book out. About a girl who moves to Hollywood for a reality show. Right…
