Stella McCartney's very successful experiment with snakeskin has led to an explosion of the print on the highstreet and has also seen other designers carrying on the trend this season with Chloe using a lot in their A/W'11 collection. You can find snakeskin print absolutely everywhere on the highstreet at the moment from shoes to leggings, dresses and bags etc. Needless to say with any print less is more. The aim is to have a little of the print mixed with neutrals or block colour. So if your wearing snakeskin shoes don't overload with a bag and if your wearing pants don't wear a snakey top too. My snakeskin shirt from StyleStalker is so easy to wear. I love that it's slightly sheer and that it's shorter at the front than the back (fishtail), which is great when you wear it with a leather mini.

Can you believe that it's Louboutin's 20 year anniversary! To celebrate this the display team in Barney's New York put together this amazing installation. Pretty cool isn't it?

I have been a fan of James Long quite a while now. Another Fashion East protege he concentrated on Menswear until he debuted his first Womenswear collection about 6 months ago for A/W '11. It certainly didn't disappoint. His strengths lie in grungy luxe knitwear. Keeping it more a muted on the catwalk James seems to really indulge in colour for his Asos collections. This is my favourite jumper that he did for his last collaboration with Asos. I call it my happy jumper. When I put it on I can't help but feel comfortable. I love it's blend of different coloured and textured wools, it's grungy holey look and how it looks like I could have knitted it myself.

I am just mad about this new Italian watch company called WeWood. Made from 100% wood these watches are Eco friendly and are a perfect marriage between design and nature. The companies motto is " One Watch One Tree One Planet " and they promise to plant a tree for every timepiece sold. WeWood is partnered with American Forests which is one of the oldest non profit conservation organisations who this year alone will plant 4.8 million trees in 43 projects across 10 countries. The price point for these watches is between Euro 90 and Euro 100, there are 11 pieces in the collection and they are available in date or chrono and a range of wood colours from beige to black. I think they would make the perfect Christmas gift for a significant other. Friends of mine Ida and Aurthur are now the Irish distributors for this cool brand, so I will keep you posted on where they will soon be available to purchase in Ireland. I can't wait. xxxx
Ricardo Tisci really knows how to dress a woman. In today's World women are required to be fierce to survive. Our clothes are sometimes worn like armour. Although we try hard to look fierce sometimes we want to just look cute too. This look from Givenchy really sums up how every woman wants to dress. Beautiful but fierce. Just like a panther............. Grrrrrr!
To recreate this look you could try and find a panther tee like this one below from Ebay and a satin skirt this the one below from Oasis. xx
