Dior at Harrods

Evening everyone!

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and not been to overly consumed by the snow! It's so horrible out, it's hard to believe this time last year we had a first form of warmth and this year we have snow! I'm over this weather now and ready for a well overdue 5 month heat wave!!!!

This week me and my partner in crime Doreen went to the Dior exhibition at Harrods and the Dior Cafe.

Now, if you follow me on twitter you'll know me and Doreen met Natalia Vodanova by complete accident when she walked in for the Dior party. And my god she's just perfection, sweet and so down to earth, she even loved the bag we were fawning over!

So we were definitely excited to visit!
We went to the Dior Cafe firstly, for afternoon tea and some much needed bubbles!

Matching Chanel bags, maxi and jumbo outing :)

Every part of the menu was designed by the Dior team to reflect the Dior restaurants that are placed around the world. I cannot fault it at all, it was pure perfection! It's not the biggest floor space but i think it makes it extra special! Definitely book ahead!

We did want to take cupcakes home, but sadly it was the wrong day as harrods had an order of 800 boxes the day before for a wedding! AND there was a waiting list for them, I've heard and seen it all now ;)

So the closest I got to Dior cupcakes was a photo....booooooo!

After our lovely lunch we went on to the exhibition and it wasn't overly crowded and I loved being able to take photos and enjoyed posing up a storm....

Charlize Theron's J'adore Dior dresses

Me and my love Doreen <3

Dior started the houndstooth trend.

Raf Simons dresses, Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence. 

One of my absolute favourite dresses from the first Raf Simons collection worn by the face of Dior Marion Cotillard.

Deconstructed Lady Dior bag.

The beautiful Audrey Hepburn dress (she was TINY!!!)

Just trying to lift Natalie Portman and a chair up....not biggie!

Just loved the lighting in the Dior booth! Just putting our order in for a giant Lady Dior to go....

Tadaaaaaaaa! All ready to take home! Now you have a box big enough?!

Has anyone else been to the exhibition and the cafe?! Did anyone buy any of the limited edition pieces made for harrods?!!! I would love to know!

More importantly, which fashion house would you like to see  Harrods collaborate with next?

Thanks for reading my loves!

From Paris with love

Hey guys!
Once apologies for my absence! After 3 weeks of living in Paris and enjoying living life to the fullest (I lived, breathed and slept fashion! Thanks Chanel) but I am back and despite having a massive Paris come down, all is well! I didn't do much sight seeing as i was constantly working but managed to take some snaps when doing some errands.....

And I also arrived to the motherland.....

My boys justice, Gaspard and Xavier!

Going to the 10th anniversary Ed Banger party/ gig was just perfection and a night I will never forget! Made some brilliant new friends, met guys I've idolised for those 10 years and went roller skating on the shoulders of a god! Ahhh Paris, I cannot wait to come back to you!

So the beautiful people who do read this, I promise to be better:) I know I always say that but I mean it :)

Whilst I was away, my mum (quite possibly the reason I love and adore fashion so much) treated me to some absolutely beautiful statement necklaces from New Look and Primark.

These are the ones from New Look

And my absolute favourite.....

And the 2 cutest and unlikely finds from Primark

What I love about these necklaces is that all have had amazing compliments and I've constantly been asked if they are high end like anthropology, COS, Danijo etc! But in reality they range from £4- £20 and by far beat any of the statement necklaces available in Topshop for double the price! Never doubt the power of New Look and Primark!

Let me know what you think of the necklaces or if you've seen any other cool ones! I love hearing about amazing finds!

Thanks for reading guys <3
