Fashion illustrator Jennifer Lilya, who recently was announced as one of CUTOUT mags top ten fashion illustrators *ROUND OF APPLAUSE PLEASE* is about to make use of one of her many other talents - collaging.
The other day I was snooping around Facebook - when I came across this wonderful photograph on my news feed:
Aren’t they beautiful!!
If you - like me would LOVE one of these in your boudoirs (or house to you normal folk) then fear not as Jennifer Lilya is soon to be including these lovely items in her etsy store! *YAY*
MAKE SURE you keep track: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jenniferlilya
From looking at other photographs on her website, I have concluded that if you arm a talented fashion illustrator with piles of magazines - your left with beautiful collages here, there and quite literally everywhere!
Wouldn’t you just love your walls to look like this? You’d certainly have the most eclectic, eccentric and fashionable house ever!
For more pictures and news on Jennfier Lilya’s collaging visit her website:

If your feeling brave enough, post a reply with a photograph of one of your collages!

I wont sit here and lie (woulda,coulda, possibly shoulda - but the inner GAGA in me loves them!) These ladies, are the definition of sexy shoes - *basking with my new found lipstick feminism*
First things first, sorry for being a bad blogger - I haven’t had a chance to blog in a couple of days - so I’m going to make it up to you today with a slight blogging overload.
Basically Ive been researching trends, and there are quite a few micro trends that take my fancy right now. Unfortunately for me I just don’t have the funds to invest in all of them - so ill blog about them instead!
First things first -This is why I have chosen to blog about the following micro trends:
You may have noticed that these are all animal related micro trends - why? Well because animals are apparently where its at this season.
Yay for animal farm I guess.
So here’s the deal: none of the outfits from below add up to any more than £100… unless you include the indulgence of shoes - if you’d like further info on any of the prices etc. then feel free to give me a little mail. Enjoy.
If you ask me fashion is all about having fun. So with the dalmatian print (above) add a Disney print tank top (in season)to lighten up the uber glam mood. team it with leather look leggings (or trousers), a denim jacket and a bright coloured faux fur stole over the collar - very in vogue I promise. The secret to this look?! Keep it simple and stick to dalmatian print, but that doesn’t mean you cant use lots of it… go crazy and let the animal inside loose.
I found that the best place to shop leopard print this season is Warehouse- don’t be put off by the prices, because you are paying for quality here… and leopard print is a micro trend that’s always on the radar.
To get the look right without risking looking a bit like someone off the cast of a chavvy soap opera *cough* Eastenders *cough* then make sure you mix the intensity of the print: by this I mean have some fine lepoard print on your coat, and a larger version or a totally different version of the print on your accessories - just keep it simple by sticking to the same colour.
No last but not at all least, we have the Bambi look. This one has been favoured by celebs such as Donatella Versace and our British sweetheart Cheryl Cole.
Rather than joining the flock of sheep however, wear this look with a twist by wearing a printed Bambi t shirt / sweater rather than a Bambi print dress. It looks funkier, and you’ll be rocking a trend rather than simply joining in on one.
Team it with some tweed shorts (and tights - since we are after all nearly in December dears) and a faux fur Gillette so finish off the Bambi vibe. If its a little too plain for your liking then add a little colour with a fabulous shade of hot pink lipstick (make sure its matt - not gloss, and you’ll be right on trend this season) BRAVO.
So there we have it, a few micro trends right from our British high street to keep you looking uber fash.
I know I probably say this in every post - but remember fashion is all about having fun - so dont be too shy to experiment with your look.

Before I start this post I would just like to point out that I KNOW I keep rambling on and on about glitter, metallics, sequin etc. - but the reason is purely because texture (including all of these shiny sparkly things) is in fashion this season BIG TIME.
If like me, you love fashion but cannot afford to by a new wardrobe every time a new trend comes by, then you’ll love this.
It involves my two favourite things (that most girls should like - no matter what style your into)… lipstick and glitter.Capiche? That’s it.
Just take a look at these photos I found on a search across some uber fashionable blogs on tumblr:
What a great way to blow a kiss huh? Beats lip balm any day!
If reds a little to plain Jane for you then opt for a fun girlish colour like pink!
This one is definitely my favourite. Colourful. Glittery. Fashionable. Fun.
You like?! I thought you would.
Anyway on to the point… here’s how to achieve the look:
Master the look by practising first, and experiment with different colours: think cerise pink and orange. You may also want to very lightly layer / dab a clear gloss over the finished look to stop the glitter wearing off during the day and night.
Another alternative would be to mix real glitter with clear lip gloss. (edible glitter would leak dye through the gloss whereas real glitter will simply mix in) Then paint it over your red lips to create the finished look.
If you’d like to give it a try with edible glitter then you can find a great selection of colours here:
Good luck. And remember - fashion is all about experimenting… so go crazy girls!

So we all know that metallics are in fashion right? (You better be nodding your head) - but what we all may not know is how to carry it off as part of our everyday look. *Surprise surprise* in some offices, it is in fact inappropriate to wear shiny silver trousers.
ABOVE: MODELS at the JASON WU show last year rocking some ‘golden locks’.So here is a little idea to get you thinking outside the box when it comes to all things gold and silver this season.It began as a micro trend last year - but this winter, its certainly back to make an impact.
How to get the Look:
You can add this trend to all sorts of hair styles, all you literally need to do is to paint it on - no hair dye, just a bit of gel and glitter.
All you need to do is get your hands on some coloured gel - what colour totally depends on the colour you want the glitter in your hair to be, so if you want gold get some gold hair gel, if you want to be daring get some red… I’m sure you understand.
Your then going to need to get some matching glitter that you can mix into the gel and sprinkle on top… so again the colour of the glitter you want totally depends on the your personal colour preference.
You then need to style your hair - shove it up in a top knot, tie it in a plait… the choices are endless.
Mix in some glitter with the gel, and then paint it onto your styled hair wherever you want it.
Sprinkle on some more glitter over the top of the gel to get the finished look.
Although Jason Wu used coloured gel - I personally think it would look just as good, if not better with clear gel… and multicoloured glitter?!
So I saw this on my friends blog the other day. Its cute, its true and even if it wasnt - it looks pretty. BRAVO.
So first things first:I absolutely lovedthis outfit as soon as I saw it… all hail Rihanna.
For those of you who dont know me personally - you should know that I am slightly obsessed with all things Rihanna. She is a musical genius, fashion icon, a role model for all success aspiring young women out there - okay so enough of the praise. Anyway, even if I wasn’t a
fan major fan, I would still have to bow down and give the girl a round of applause for this ensemble!
She was seen wearing it earlier this month leaving an exclusive club in London. Okay, I personally wouldn’t wear this to a club, but it would make such an amazing outfit to match a bitter breeze on a cold winters day.
I. WILL. HAVE. THIS. OUTFIT. BY. DECEMBER. - enough said.
Rihanna’s new album Talk That Talkwill be out on November 12th 2011! - Yes I AM overly excited. And YES I AM overly excited to see what stage outfits her new album brings with it!
