Rachel Gilbert AW12 Preview

Rachel Gilbert is a brand that has just got onto my radar and I couldn’t be happier. The designer hails from Australia and her collection comprises of floaty shirts, pleated skirts and stunning embellished dresses.

It’s her foreign roots that makes this Autumn Winter Collection quite astounding to Brits, as she makes no allowances for the climate with her pastel hued collection that sparkles under the light with intricate beading and adornments on every available area. I love her collection- the floaty skirts and tops are incredibly wearable and the colour palette makes them look so light and airy.

When it comes to evening dresses we’re talking serious glamour, and Rachel Gilbert has this is spades, creating dresses that flatter a woman’s shape and are very red carpet worthy.

Nails Inc Metallic Collection

I’m a huge fan of metallic nail varnishes as I love how they catch the light and make fingers super reflective- and they’re sooo much easier to remove than glitter varnishes.

To be a true metallic shade you need to really catch the light- think tinfoil for the nails- and I’m happy to say this new collection fits this remit well. They don’t have an ultra shine, as they have more of a chrome finish, but I like how this gives the nails a more subtle look, rather than a in your face mirror finish.

Darling Clothes AW12 Bag designs

Darling is a brand that likes to give back to its customers, and they’ve created a range of beautiful bags and purses that will have your mouth watering.

This is the second season they have EVER created bags and I have to say I’m impressed. They have mixed soft leather with patent to create an array fo designs, from slouchy handbags and large totes, to cutesy clutch bags and embroidered satchels. They have a really cute array of coin purses and prices are very reasonable, from £30 and up for some really high quality stuff.

Created in 2008, Darling keeps getting better, and their bag line is just a small exciting sign of things to come. Nadia Moraes is the founder and designer and  the designs all have a slightly retro feel to them, from small details such as the pretty lining or the cute way that clasps are aligned. The tone for the brand is ‘English Vintage’ and this has been captured with class. Let me know what pieces are your favourites!

MAC Hey Sailor Collection for a nautical time

I love anything nautical, so the MAC Cosmetics Hey, Sailor! range is perfect for me. This new collection offers up a selection of playful shades and adorable packaging, and not only do they look great, but they are also incredibly versatile and perfect for summer. The collection provides and abundance of colour and bronzing shades and  I’m excited to share this with you.  The collection is only available for 8 weeks, so it’s ultra limited edition and the dates you can get it are from 3rd May 2012 – approx 30th June (dont’ have my calendar out- sue me!)

I love how they’ve managed to have the nautical theme running through every product and the blue and white stripes are really attractive looking- especially on the lipsticks, as it makes them stand out that extra bit more.

Diptyque Rich Body Butter Review

I love Diptyque candles, as not only do they smell divine but they conjure up showcases at London Fashion Week (they like to douse the halls with these candles) so good memories are very related to the Diptyque scent.

What people might not realize is that they also have a healthy bodycare line, and I’ve been testing their Rich Body Butter. It comes in a stylish glass pot, which has a nice weight to it, and has a really rich texture. It’s a thick cream that takes a little while to absorb into the skin, but the delightful scent of rose makes you enjoy rubbing it in, and its infused with argan oil and organic honey to make the skin look supple and soft and smell delicious.

Mood colour changing nail varnish

 

When I was younger I adored mood rings and would stare into their liquid centre thinking the colour could somehow predict if I was going to have a good day, or *gasp* tell me if I was’introspective and thoughtful’. Girls were teased if the mood ring revealed they were in lurv, and though I’m old enough to know how it works now (basically based on body heat, sorry to ruin it for you) I still remember how excited I’d get when I’d play with mine.

The Colour Changing Mood Polish doesn’t promise to reveal your mood, but will give your nails a cool two tone gradient effect. It’s a cute way to get value for money (two varnishes for one) and to keep track of your heat/ mood changes throughout the day.

Irregular Choice AW12 preview

Irregular Choice are a long term favorite brand of mine as they have such a playful edge to all their designs. I’m in love with their new shoe styles for the coming year as they effortlessly blend flowers and embellishments with interesting designs. Some of the highlights that stand out are shoes with a New York skyline printed on them and flower corsage heels which turn an everyday pair of boots into something that really stands out.

They also previewed a lot of great looking accessories for the coming year, and really put their bags on my radar. I love the look of the circus tote which features lions and elephants and their metallic clutches are equally adorable as they showcase monogrammed cats and a variety of contrasting metallic colours. They also have a little known range of accessories that include headwear and sunglasses and their cats eye glasses are adorable.
