Marni x H&M is coming…

Posted in Collaborations by Nneoma Ulu on January 29, 2012

The first ad for the upcoming H&M collaboration with Marni has surfaced featuring British actress Imogen Poots. Likely to be shot in Marrakesh where the Sofia Coppola shot the campaign video, Imogen is lounging in a leopard-print filled room wearing a shiny paisley ensemble. The collection drops in stores on March 8th and I cannot wait.

Preparing for the slopes

Posted in My wardrobe by Nneoma Ulu on January 29, 2012

I’m getting ready for my first ski trip since my teens and all I can really think about is keeping warm. At the moment I’m thinking the solution is cashmere so I’m on the hunt for affordable jumpers and dresses.

I’ve found some great ladies knitwear basics by Pure Collection but I’m keeping my eyes peeled for some neon cashmere jumpers too.

Bomber jackets are back. Yes, you heard it here. But this time, they are colourful with prints. I’m on the hunt for the perfect one and this week I’m taking inspiration from this combo as snapped by Tamu McPherson – the pleated maxi dress and printed bomber. Oh, the excitement. I can hardly contain myself.

Dreaming of Spring

Posted in Celebrity Style by Nneoma Ulu on January 18, 2012

Jessica Alba is my unlikely fashion hero today. I’ve never really paid much attention to her style – she plays it safe and always goes for the “pretty” look but this outfit could be the start of great things. The perfect combination of a bright orange Acne jumper, floral ankle grazers and that gorgeous Doo.Ri coat, ideal for spring. I can’t wait till it starts warming up so I can ditch the opaque tights and wear some floral ankle grazers like Jessica’s and that coat is firmly on my wish list.

Jessica Alba you are now on my radar….

2012 Golden Globes: Who judges the judges?

Posted in Awards by Nneoma Ulu on January 16, 2012

It’s awards season and the best and worst dressed lists are doing the rounds following the Golden Globes. There were some notable wins (Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams, Lea Michele) and some surprising disappointments (Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Sarah Michelle Gellar) but rather than the usual round-up of who looked hot and who didn’t, my Golden Globes spotlight falls on two well known fashion commentators – Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne. Now, I’m an avid watcher of E! Entertainment’s Fashion Police led by the harsh yet hilarious Joan Rivers with her band of questionably stylish co-hosts – Kelly, Giuliana and the dashing George Kostiopoulos and I pay particular attention during awards season to catch their honest and candid reviews of the red carpet victors and losers. However, it strikes me that two of her panel often get it so wrong when it comes to dressing for the red carpet…

Giuliana always goes for floor length numbers that accentuate her long, lean frame which works for her. Sadly, this dress looks like she’s wearing a neck brace… and the heavy-looking lace detail seems just a little bit much for her slight frame.

Oh Kelly, what saddens me about this attempt is the potential. The colour of her custom-made Zac Posen number is perfect for the red carpet but there is something so unflattering about the fabric and the anglular silhouette that just doesn’t work. And Kelly, that purple/grey rinse in your hair is just not working. Fingers crossed these two get it right for the upcoming Academy Awards… or they are at serious risk or losing their fashion credentials.

Is it me or is it getting colder outside? I’m loving Hanneli’s take on winter dressing as she embraces Spring’s pastels trend teaming it up with winter whites, a pop of colour and some tough girl boots. Dreamy.

Chloe + Elle

Posted in Awards, Celebrity Style by Nneoma Ulu on January 15, 2012

Two red carpet events, two girl crushes. Chloe Moretz in Proenza Schouler at the People’s Choice Awards and Elle Fanning in Rodarte at the17th Annual Critic’s Choice Movie Awards.

These tweens are definitely ones to watch.

Company Magazine: A blogger love-in?

Posted in Cool stuff by Nneoma Ulu on January 14, 2012

Alexa Chung covers the ‘new look’ February 2012 issue of Company magazine and whilst she looks as great as ever, it is the new layout of the magazine itself that caught my eye.

I picked up a handbag-sized copy and devoured it pretty quickly on my train ride home, with it’s great layout and it’s personal feel. The pages are packed with fashion picks from Company’s fashion team but also the magazine’s readers, which gives it a really personal feel. It features bloggers throughout with a couple of blogger specific features (including the one below) but interestingly, it almost feels like a blog. It’s full of street style inspiration and high street suggestions for updating your wardrobe.

Company’s love for bloggers doesn’t end with the mag but also extends online, with their upcoming Style Blogger Awards proving that the mag loves bloggers just as much as bloggers love the mag.

Company mag has always been one of the magazines that I pick up occasionally but the new layout and blogger friendly content has me hooked. I’m definitely a Company girl!

I’m taking inspiration from Anna Wintour this week. I wonder what she’s thinking…?
