This sublime dress is one of Oscar's latest efforts. Fitting in with the 50's knee-length trend which stormed this season's catwalks, you can expect to see this dress on at least 1 A-lister in the upcoming months. The laced neckline gives a hint of sexiness, balancing out the dresses more demure length. It's romantic; the kind of dress you could loll around in on a late Autumn evening, watching falling leaves and petals fly to the ground...

This is an old picture- well, relatively old, it was shot for 'Teen Vogue' back in 2008- and yet I am still in love with the romanticity of the look, and inspired with the way it exudes undone cool. The leather jacket and expression of feigned indifference contrasts perfectly with the barbie girl bright pink bag, to the point where the outfit gives off the perfect aroma of effortless, youthful style.

"You don't learn style watching people on a runway. Fashion happens every morning when you wake up."Unfortunately I don't actually remember who this quote is by, but it's taped to my bedroom mirror.
"Life is too short to blend in." - Paris HiltonA very straight-to-the-point but nevertheless inspirational musing from the worlds' most documented airhead. Not so, it seems; Paris seems to be a clever and influential individual.

For most teenage girls $100, or £59.50, is a capacious amount, especially when you’re on a monthly budget of £20. But apparently not. According to ‘Teen Vogue’, the teenagers’ style bible, it seems that any credible fashionista should have no qualms at splurging out on £50 leggings, courtesy of the bank of mummy and daddy. (I certainly can’t afford it!) I for one have been a victim of the seductive glossy spreads before now, and convinced myself it was necessary to fork out over £200 in the summer for my outfits. I’m now rationing my toothpaste in an attempt to save some pennies, as the bank of mummy and daddy has decided that due to the recession, it has had to fold. And unfortunately, I don’t get any government bail-outs.

do love flicking back through old magazines, and stumbling across exquisite clothes I had previously overlooked. It's the type of fantastical fairy tale dress that conjures up images of forest nymphs running through the woods. I want this outfit!

Everyone in this world is unique. And everyone in this world knows it. The irony is that each person belongs to some kind of social cult, whether they realise or not, and are destined to forever be on the same wavelength as someone else. It seems that right now, everyone is desperate to jump on the 'original’ band wagon. It’s rather an elusive quest, considering the billions of people who inhabit the Earth. Take the Fashion Princess for example: half shaved hair, exquisitely dressed in a couple of ‘vintage’ pieces thrown together with a pair of biker boots and a kooky geek-chic bag. We’ve all seen them, stomping down various high streets as if on a cat walk. Totally Original. So polished, their look can only come from the millions of magazine pages screaming the latest trends, and all the subsequent pictures of celebrities in their ‘envisioned’ outfits. It’s all the same. Fashion has lost its diversity. We have become roaming sheep desperately in need of some form of leadership, happily handing our lives over to the dictatorship which is now fashion. We’re a real-life oxymoron: a generation of seemingly original unoriginal’s. Perhaps if we stopped getting so hung up on being unique, true individuals would be born.
