Look 4 less | Isabel Marant | Lauryn Blouse

The only designer who could make a Western style outfit look insanely cool and fashionable would have to be “Designer of the moment“, Madame Isabel Marant! Her Fall 2012 collection had a clear Western/cowgirl theme going on and even though I probably wouldn’t wear a head-to-toe look from that collection myself in order to avoid looking like I am disguising myself and trying too hard, there are definitely a number of items which I wouldn’t mind having in my wardrobe. I’m not sure what to think of this particular yoked cowgirl shirt though, especially not after seeing the hefty price tag!

If you’re an Isabel Marant fangirl on a tight budget, try this Marant-inspired shirt by Dorothy Perkins to get the same cowgirl look. It’s not a 1:1 copy, but the inspiration is quite obvious to see here. Currently on sale for only $29!

Christian Louboutin Supra Fifre Thigh-high Boots

Thigh-high boots are dangerous territory because they can easily look…well, wrong. Think cheap-y and stripperish! But let us not judge too hasty here because over-the-knee boots can also look super hot and fabulous. Case in point? These Christian Louboutin OTK boots. The black suede tones down the Pretty Woman resemblance factor by quite a bit while the lacing detail gives them a vintage Victorian feel.

These are thigh-high boots done right, but oh, €1,335 for a pair? I think I’ll have to pass this time!

So you want Louboutin style but for less – a lot less – right? Well, worry not, Berskha has got you covered. Don’t be fooled though, the boots are from a past season. Anyway, I love the way that blogger Laura Ruiz – Ármodi  wear them.

Came across these Louboutin inspired faux suede OTK boots by JustFab. What do you think about these? Yay or nay?

Alexa Chung: three looks wearing the navy sweater.

Revered as the street style poster girl for wearable-chic style, I find myself incessantly trailing shots of Alexa Chung to inspire my everyday attire. I adore this it-Brit’s ability to perfectly curate an outfit for any occasion. Leave it to Alexa to brilliantly rock a navy sweater around town three different ways.





World’s Longest Social Scarf

The Woolmark Company is giving wool lovers the chance to make history by setting a new
world record for the World’s Longest Social Scarf.

Recently launched, The Woolmark Company’s ‘Wrapped in Merino’ campaign which runs on
a microsite and on the We Love Wool community, aims to connect people in social media as
they collaboratively design a giant virtual scarf. Each participant creates their own section
of the scarf, adding their photo and customising the scarf design, before sharing it with their
friends through Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.

Participants automatically enter the draw to win one of eight fashion prize packs, including
Net-A-Porter vouchers and soft Merino wool scarves.

Merino wool is a unique fibre, loved by fashion and apparel designers for its quality and
versatility. The campaign aims to give users a hands on experience with this fibre as they are
given the opportunity to design and customise their own personal scarf.

The campaign will be run through the ‘We Love Wool’ Facebook page launched by The
Woolmark Company in June 2011, which has recently celebrated 100,000 fans! The thriving
community provides consumers, retailers and designers alike a touch-point to connect and
discuss all things wool.
