Marc Jacobs SS15!

After a long line of celebrity endorsed advertising campaigns for his Marc Jacobs label, the fashion designer has taken a more innovative stance for his SS15 advertising campaign for his second label Marc by Marc Jacobs. 

Quirky detailing, playful embellishments and stand out patterns are what gives Marc by Marc Jacobs that fun youthful edge. Appealing to those looking to make a statement with their outfit choices whilst building a wardrobe of overstated designer pieces. For the SS15 Campaign Marc put traditional methods aside for the second time and cast his models from straight from his phone through social media app, Instagram! 

To enter with the chance of taking part in the photo shoot, you had to upload your style shot with #castmemarc. Oh & then you need to actually stand out, out of the 100,000+ images that were uploaded. In the end 11 models were chosen from around the world, including; London, America, Switzerland and South Korea. Take a look at the full campaign on

Barbie: Moschino vs Wildfox

As a girly girl brought up in the 90's of course my bedroom was filled with Barbie dolls, cars to take them to the beach and not forgetting the Barbie where you could change their hair colour? When Barbie made an official instagram earlier this year- I was ecstatic to see a childhood icon still going strong and having an impact on our day to day lives. Earlier this week Moschino revealed it's SS15 catwalk collection, hugely inspired by Barbie and if it hasn't featured on your Facebook and Twitter timelines prepare to be amazed. After launching their AW14 collection in February straight from the catwalk reveal they decided to take the same approach he same this time round. Buying is exactly what people are doing with lots of pieces already out of stock.! As part of Vogue's #FNO I popped into Selfridges last night and saw some of the bags for the first time- absolutely stunning! However apart from the iPhone case the collection isn't exaclty affordable... So I am here to save you with one of the latest lookbooks from Wildfox which also plays homage to all things Barbie. The bad news is however, rumours are the Wildfox collection won't be available until January, but if you can't afford a piece from the Moschino collection (the majority of us- don't worry) Wildfox is a great option when the collection lands. Let me leave you with my top picks from Moschino SS15 and let the countdown begin for the Wildfox collection.

1. Moschino SS15 Jumper, £379
2. Totally Moschino SS15 Crop, £205
3. Moschino Mini Skirt SS15, £224
4. Moschino Leather Bag, £1,050
5. Moschino Rucksack, £422

Jewellery: Mean Girls Collection

I cannot quite believe that it has been a decade since the release of Mean Girls, back when I was only 13 years old! Ever since it has been common knowledge that "you can't sit with us" and on "wednesdays we wear pink". I actually remember one of my friends creating a Burn Book inspired from the film, needless to say this caused lots of teenage problems.

To celebrate the milestone Stella & Bow are launching a Mean Girls inspired range entitled 'The Burn Book Collection'. Each piece is inspired from the film and named after a Mean Girls character. It's hard to pick a favourite piece as I love them all but I think it has to be the best friends necklace and cute pink stone bangle. What I love most about the collection is the pieces are subtle, delicate yet humorous and alluring. The only pieces I don't like are the friendship style bracelets are perhaps aimed towards a younger market. The collection is due for release in February but is available for pre-order.

Ok so looking back at my New Years Resolutions I realise how optimistic blogging '7 times a week' really was. The truth is I was working in a dead end retail job and blogging was my only creative freedom, where I could escape in between endless cover letters and job applications. At the moment I barely manage one blog post a month, but things have changed and I am working full time for Celliana, and run the social media for Timeless Luxe and Mary Handy. Time really is precious.


Happy New Year everyone- make this your year!
