Heroin Chic

Heroin chic, a controversial fashion trend became popular in the mid 1990's, it encompassed waif like models, frail and pale with sunken cheeks and dark eyes, messy hair, and dressed in over sized clothes but in a manner which often exposed skin. think Kate Moss when she was with Johnny Depp, Courtney Love, or Jaime King.
Depicting a 'glamourous' side to substance abuse, it caused a stir in the media, giving the fashion world a visual of models appearing strung out.
The trend gained attention serving as a vastly different look to the overly perfected and beautified models of the 1980's. This juxtapositon was stark.
The emergence of Heroin Chic in fashion photgraphy gave us the visual culture of aspects of society at the time,especially in the fashion world. The photographer Davide Sorrenti championed the look, shooting both Moss and his girlfriend Jaime King in this manner, Ironically he later died as a result of  heroin abuse.
Although it portrayed a very unhealthy image, there was certainly something sexy and unique about the trend. It was artistic and edgy. And I loved the photographs.

October Purchases

Topshop  'Ambush'

Penneys (Primark)

Topshop 'Abe'

Went on a bit of a boot buying craze in October. I am really happy with all of these items so far, I have already worn my Ambush boots from Topshop to death!! They are unbelievably comfy,even though they have a small heel, my feet are actually less sore wearing these for a whole day in work than when I wear my converse. Ah-Mazing . Think I'm going on a shopping free month for November....... try and save some money for New York and Christmas, both of which are approaching very quickly. Come on bank account , fatten yourself up!

Be Inspired

Miranda Kerr getting it spot on here. What a perfect Autumn outfit! Cosy and chic, she demonstrates how you can look fabulous in all black using a small pop of colour to catch our eyes with her rust red bag. Just gorgeous but what else would you expect from the beautiful model.

Apologies for the lack of posts of late, have been travelling a lot in the last few weeks and I'm off to Germany on Friday. Hopefully will be back in action next week!
Had an amazing time in London last weekend visiting my best friend! What an amazing city, everytime I visit, I fall more in love  with lovely London.

Style icon - Miroslava Duma

The beautiful Miroslava Duma first came on to my radar in 2010 while she was pregnant. She put together the most stylish outfits throughout her pregnancy, always looking effortlessly chic yet comfortable with a boho edge. Anyone who is an avid fashion blog reader will know of this Russian 'IT' girl, she is everywhere on the blogosphere. She's a former editor of Harper's Bazaar Russia and now writes freelance. She has her own blog buro24/7 where you can find her Looks of the Day. It's all in Russian but great for looking at the pictures!
