Voluptuous Velvet

Velvet is having a big moment in fashion this Winter (thank god I kept my trusty velvet leggings from last year).

From bandeau dresses to asymetrical dresses and even the odd maxi, velvet seems to be everywhere.

I simply adore this velvet maxi dress from ASOS for £65.00, it ticks the boxes for velvet and the short/ long trend that is very A/W2010. Also this dress seems to highlight curves in a Jessica Rabbit style.

Another favourite of mine is this orange velvet TFNC dress for £45.00. The ruched detailing of this flatters curves and the colour makes it a very unique look. Team with some skyscraper chunky heels and you have the perfect party look to take you through Winter.

Gaga fashion doesn’t come cheap

Lady Gaga wowed everyone in her regal Alexander McQueen dress at the MTV Video Music Awards.

However, anyone hoping to try to imitate her royal Gaganess best be ready to sign over their bank account.

This Alexander McQueen dress with similar pattern to the one the Bad Romance singer wore can be yours for just over £7,000 from Matches Fashion

Guess I will put it on my Christmas list and see if Santa is feeling highly generous this year.

Furry Creature Fashion

Winter again, time for scarfs and woollen hats.

Last year Katy Perry had a fashion love affair with a River Island bear hat that eventually sold out.

Fear not if you didn’t get your hat last year – River Island has introduced some new furry favourites to tie you over until spring.

So whether you want to keep your ears snug with a racoon or a bunny rabbit head down to River Island now and pick up one of these snug cuties. Prices from £12.99

I got mine last year and believe me I shall be working this one again throughout winter – Also, putting it over your face never seems to get boring!

Take a hike

As the seasons change so do our footwear choices.

The gladiator sandals are now hidden away waiting for Summer to hit once more and it is time to bust out the old Winter favourite – the Boot.

After months of the Biker boot being a fashion fave, a new unlikely boot style is now in vogue –  the hiking boot.

Before I lose you and you think I want you to take a trip down to Millets, I can reassure you this boot is damn fabulous and is already all over the high street.

With fierce heels and laced-up studs, these boots certainly won’t fare well on any fells but the shearling trim is a nod to the aviator trend without having to invest in a pricey flying jacket.
