The Versatile Leather Skirt

Hi all,

As you all know, AW'11 is seeing the return of the Leather Skirt which is one of my favourite pieces this year. It's definitely a must due to how versatile a chic leather skirt can be whether you are going for the pleated, a-line or pencil skirt.. one of those wardrobe staples which you can easily throw on and mix and match with other items. I am going for leather in the brown or black simply because it shouts ultra elegance, especially the black.

Some personal designer favourites of mine for the season...

I am loving the cut detail hem in Ksubi's and the cuteness of the Alice + Olivia skirt. The Michael Kors interpretation is definitely something that will catch your eye on the street. Less is more with the clean and elegant A.P.C skirt.

And lets not forget the high street. I'm currently loving River Island's pleated black leather mini skirt.

Emphasis on the word "mini" there as I am quite petite so happy days (even though I will be heartbroken to see £75 go out from my account). Funny how I'm trying to justify the cost of it even after this post of All hail the Leather Skirt!

Please leave your thoughts in the comments! (And convince me to buy this skirt)

H&M at Selfridges, London

Feeling spontaneous! Two posts in one day ;)

Attention all Londoners! H&M is officially coming into Selfridges at 9.30am on the 25th August 2011. It will the stock the very best of H&M with an "edited" selection of the latest key pieces for the season. Bit of a slight steal of Topshop's famous "edited" concept no?

This means that I won't have to filter through all their "cheap" items to get to the ones worth buying! You all know what I mean when I mean cheap, I'm sure. (Don't get me wrong, I <3 H&M).



Fashion Capitals of the World 2011 - I'M BACK :)

Hey all! It's Monica here I am back (if any of you remember me I'm sure you won't but that is ok! :]) after a long few un-inspiring months. I have been blogging via tumblr (check it out here ) however as far as my actual blog was concerned, I began to have writers block and lost the inspiration. I am officially back to writing so be prepared for fashion/style news and inspirations as I see it. As from this post it is a new leaf so it may be different from my posts in the past.

I am starting with talking about the new and updated official Top 10 Fashion Capitals of the World as voted by Global Fashion Monitor. Having been born and bred in London I am proud to say that London is THE No.1 fashion capital of the world this year (well deserved I must say). They say it has been heavily influenced by our fabulous style icon Kate Middleton and Alexander McQueen who have both been huge in the media spotlight all over the world for the past year. Who knew the media had THAT much power, pwhoar! Milan has at last come back to the top 4 which is definitely where it should be (how on earth it was below L.A last year is beyond my comprehension).

Barcelona, Singapore and Berlin also made it into the top 10 which is news to me only because I have never really known these capitals to be that huge on fashion culture. Having said that, Berlin is fabulous for their street style; being very edgy and urban. I have been to Singapore many times and there aren't a lot of inspired fashionistas on the streets at all. Even though there are great streets for shopping. P.S. this is not a hit on Singapore I love it there :)

Here is the list along with their rank last year (taken from Fashion Foie Gras):

London (3) HOORAY!
New York (1) 
Paris (4) 
Milano (6) 
Los Angeles (5) 
Hong Kong (2) 
Barcelona (10) 
Singapore (15)
Tokyo (14)
Berlin (18)

What are your thoughts? Surprised? Pleased? Not so pleased?
