Don't you just love Twiggy?

I'm an avid fan of Americas Next Top Model (its the best! Where else can you find the likes of Jay Alexander and Jay Manuel? ) and its back to Living TV on February the 4th for cycle 9. Isn't it just so annoying that everyone in America gets to see it before us? During the middle of cycle 8, I went on a fashion website and as it was in America, it revealed who had won! So, this time I'm not going anywhere near other websites during airing (well ... ) Anyway, I think Twiggy's been great on the panel and shes such an icon, becoming 'The face of '66' and the high fashion mod look. However, she's not returning for cycle 10 and is going to be replaced! Booo!

Don't get me started with the huge things Tyra wears on her head!

Go read!

I know that this post isn't strictly fashion related, but I felt too compelled not to spread the word about this fantastic book, We need to Talk about Kevin, which I just finished. The storyline is both gripping and thought provoking, following a series of letters that Eva writes to her husband as she tries to understand why her son, shortly before turning 16, killed 7 fellow students, a teacher and a cafeteria worker. The book asks the inevitable question of whether or not nature dominates nurture or vice versa. I was lucky to stumble across such a good novel, as shortly after Christmas I walked into WHSmiths and decided to buy a book at random, as I normally stick to the same kind of writing. I really urge everyone to buy this book! Go! Now!

I stumbled across this site and fell in love with this checker board shirt dress - around £42.50 ($85).

P.S Where has Ugly Betty gone? I'm getting with drawl symptoms!

You know what time of year it is ...

SALE TIME! Quite possibly, the best part of the Christmas holidays, although I can't say I enjoyed trawling through the racks in a shop crammed full of people the day after Boxing day. I had a great Christmas, apart from deciding to wear my best pair of shoes on New Years Eve and getting the left heel caught in a hole, causing the patent to be worn away. Thank god for the black marker pen. Two of my favourite presents I received are below:

Moshino Love perfume and an Eden filofax (practical and stylish)

But now, I'm pining for these sale items!
