halloween inspiration

If you're looking for some Halloween inspiration this year and are tired of the ugly monster / Mean Girls 'total slut' options, why not take it up a notch in chic vampy clothes (black silk, crushed velvet, leather, lace and sheer fabric) and let your makeup do the talking, as demonstrated below (styling by Carine Roitfeld and shot by Mert & Marcus for Vogue Paris October 2010). In love with that crucifix and handprint. Top marks for innovation, chicness and simplicity.

winter obsession

I am so obsessed with this Christopher Kane S/S11 shade of neon lime/acid yellow for Autumn/Winter. I bought this lovellyyyy fluffy angora jumper from H&M in my favourite shade a couple of weeks ago and have worn it with my faux leather leggings from Zara (sorry there's not a pic of me in the outfit!). This winter I'll be using splashes of neon to brighten up drab winter outfits - I love the contrast of summer colours on heavy winter fabrics.

Other brights I'm crushing on:
Acne angora jumper

Hearts & Hands @ Urban Outfitters coat

Cambridge Satchel Company

American Apparel Neon yellow nail varnish
