A piece of Kate

As of yet I haven't bought anything from the Kate Moss collection at Topshop (boo!). I wanted the black off-the-shoulder dress but was unable to find one as it was so popular! After browsing the site, literally two minutes ago, I've found some things that are both affordable and effortlessly stylish - just like the woman herself.

P.S Has anyone seen that picture of her recently in a £2000 vintage dress that she wore to an Awards Ceremony and then by the end of the night it was ripped to pieces?

Its Dior Couture

I loved Heidi Klum's recent outfit at the Emmy Awards. Its very 'old hollywood glamour'. I also thought that the the Dior Couture 2007 collection was AMAZING especially this look (the pearls are great, ditto the dress)

What I want, what I really really want

Here's the top things on my wishlist at the moment:

1. A waiscoat. I've been searching for one for what seems like AGES and I just can't seem to get one in the right material, fit and at the right price. There were some nice ones in New Look but they were Halter Neck style which I didn't like. The search continues!

2. A good mascara. This is a tricky one. I've tried so many but I've yet to find the one. At the moment I have the Memoirs of a Geisha one (I think its Max Factor) which is good but I'd like to try the new Rimmel one with the really thin brush (well, its more of a stick).

3. A winter dress. One which I can wear with tights and high patents in an oh-so-casual way when really you've spent hours getting ready. Possibly a shift dress.

4. The October edition of Teen Vogue. I got the September edition for the first time and loved it!

On the plus side, I did get some 'winter' shorts which I will wear with opaques and ballet pumps or heels.

Betty Jackson - key trends

I'm a big fan of Betty Jackson - the clothes are amazing! I've been looking at her fall collection (although the second picture is from the summer collection) today and love the chunky knits, T Bar shoes, masculine tailoring and high waisted trousers.

Ugly Betty

I really enjoyed the Ugly Betty series that was on Channel 4 a while ago and was really sad when the series finished but it will be back soon. Seeing the running of a fashion magazine was great and I know, it was a total copy of The Devil Wears Prada (unfashionable worker goes to a top fashion magazine yadda yadda yadda - how did they get away with it?) but you've just got to love Betty! Her clothes are weird in a cute way and that little 'B' pearl necklace she wears always makes me smile. And oh! her nephew Justin! He is hilarious! Anyway, I thought that Amanda's, the secretary, style was uber cool and so when I found this dress I just had to do a post about it. Its a Vera Wang corsage dress which you can snap up at £1,300 (no chance of 99.9% of us buying it then!) And how about these Pedro Garcia Ninette heels which are £155 to go with it?

Oh, Diane!

Diane Von Furstenburg has been producing some great pieces that I would totally die to own. I've selected a few of my favourites so I can sigh at them and wonder ... what if I owned that chiffon dress? Or that gorgeous blouse? A girl can dream!

Black is the new er ... black

Black is coming back with a bang! Not to sound morbid or anything, but I love the colour black on clothing because its so versatile and its slimming too. Black with embellishment on it is another huge trend and New look have some great affordable pieces. Heres my pick of the best black clothes avaliable now.

Slash Neck Tunic: £30, Topshop. Tie Neck Short Sleeve Blouse: £38, Warehouse. Modern Embellished Tunic: £65, Oasis. French Connection Swing Mac: £130, Oli.
