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….

I have an unnatural obsession for ankle boots forming. It would probably be a bit excessive to get all of these but not impossible… Bring on winter.
1. Kors Michael Kors Divina suede ankle boots, £215
2. Topshop Aldgate Black Heeled Chelsea Boots, £62
3. Acne Black Pistol Ankle Boots, £370
4. Belle by Sigerson Morrison Crepe Platform Boot, $350
5. Madewell Suede Zipcode Boots, $188
6. Belle by Sigerson Morrison Suede Velcro Boots, $350
Enough of this muggy, sad-excuse-for-a-summer weather with some sporadic torrential rain thrown in for good measure already. Bring on the cold. I’m longing for sumptuous knits of the Acne and Whistles variety and ankle boots by Topshop and Kors Michael Kors.

The sun may be back but the September issues are trickling in and the sale stock is being cleared from the stores as our attention subtly shifts yo Autumn. The collection that makes me want to go out and get a pay day loan is Acne Pre-Fall.
The sumptuous oatmeal and navy thick and thin stripes – a winter update to the somewhat tired breton stripe and boxy tees are a sure fire way to a happy winter wardrobe.
It’s my birthday this week so I’ve set myself the task of finding a birthday dress to celebrate the occasion in true style. The reality of these credit crunch times is that I won’t be buying anything new as I have a number of items in my wardrobe with the tags still on. A girl can still dream so I got to thinking about what my ideal birthday party dress would be (if I had a limitless budget).
Every girl needs a good little black dress and I’d happily take this one from Acne. Especially if it comes with those shoes! Simple, understated yet sexy. The shoes really make this outfit.
You can’t go wrong with a Marc Jacobs dress. I’m loving the colour of this dress and I can imagine having a good old boogie in it.
This sparkly Balmain number is the perfect dress to ensure that all eyes are on me. Another good dress for dancing!
Erdem knows how to make dresses that women want to wear and I want to wear this! I love the simple make up on this too, the red lips look great. Simple, girly and not too understated.
Whilst I don’t think the styling in this image is the greatest, this Peter Pilotto number would be my number one choice, with black opaque tights and killer heels. It’s a little bit statement and a little bit look at me and that’s the whole point – my birthday only comes around once a year. Maybe if I start saving up now I can afford to buy it for next year’s birthday!
I’ve taken my head out of the clouds and gone shopping in my wardrobe. I’ve settled on a floral print number from H&M’s Divided Exclusive collection. Someone get me to the bar!
