Cinderella’s slipper = FOUND!


Maybe if I buy these awesome perspex shoes from Marc Jacobs he’ll show up?

Soooooo much more comfortable than glass slippers – and you get a pair!


LOVE! Marc Jacobs transparent pumps $595

Reunited - phew.


NYFW: Best dressed celebs sitting FROW

Where there’s Fashion Week there are celebs. Here are some of the most stylish FROW fashionistas in our humble opinion! We can’t wait to bring you the LFW best-of.

Glam in metallics: Maria Sharpova and Dakota Fanning with Marc Jacobs

Pretty in print: Zoe Saldana, Abigail Breslin and Solange Knowles + Dakota Fanning and Natalie Portman look casual and kooky at Rodarte

The Glam squad: Amber Heard, Olivia Palermo and (OMG) Taylor Momsen

Jessica Alba, Rooney Mara and Emma Stone keep it bright but simple

NYFW: The 1990s are back (kinda) with Marc Jacobs

Once again, Marc Jacobs created another NYFW ‘moment’ but at this moment in time, apart from prolonging the rather tired 1990s grunge trend, we’re struggling how this one might translate to the high street as we can’t see the general public embracing giant furry hats.

Fashion writers have mulled over possible influences: The Cat in the Hat, buccaneers and pirates, Dionne from Clueless, Willy Wonka, Kurt Cobain, tramps, Jamiroquai and we can see them all – with a grungy edge.

There was also a flirtation with exaggerated retro shapes. Trying to strip away the more outlandish bits, pencil and lantern-shaped skirts in interesting textures were a recurrent theme as well as tricky cropped trousers and mid-length layers as well as grungy fur with the odd touch of pastel rave.

While I admire the creativity and Jacobs’ ability to be different, this show stuck out because it was more conceptual in a sea of ready-to-wear looks and *please don’t hate me* I prefer Marc Jacobs in his brighter and more easy-to-wear moments.

The skirt reminds me of the 1990s

Elle mag's mash-up

I do like the 90s furry coat

Dr Seuss much?

So many styles mixed into one chaotic look

Slightly Kurt Cobain?

Retro dress meets pirate boots and a huge furry hat!

Unlikely style icon of the year = Miss Piggy: 2011 retrospective

Honeysuckle pink was officially Pantone’s colour of 2011 and while we could wax lyrical about Kate Middleton in McQueen or Lady Gaga in very little (both influencing fashion in very different ways) we think that 2011 was Miss Piggy’s year! Let’s be honest – did anyone see that coming?

But why? Well there’s a new Muppets movie just released Stateside and the perky pig has in the past year, collaborated with Mac, got an InStyle editorial and sat FROW at Michael Kors’ show. Here are a few of our favourite Miss Piggy moments.

Cute dress shirt with mini piggys from Opening Ceremony. Around $180

Miss Piggy inspired Jerome C Rousseau to create these $595 pink beauties - not for porky feet!

Happy Birthday to me!

It was my birthday last weekend and despite being a year older (and wiser) I am unsurprisingly still addicted to many of the same blogs and as obsessed with fashion as ever.

So as I am a YouTube and blog ‘haul’ addict and I think you can tell a lot about someone from their sense of style…mine as you can see is slightly quirky…I thought I’d share some of my favourite presents with you (in a non-bragging way. I’m a seriously lucky girl!)

Birthday haul!

As you might be able to see, several of my gifts have featured in previous blogs – like golden rings, Versace x H&M and faux fur goodies. You’ll also know I would love a pug fashion dog!

Versace x H&M croc/palm skirt + Topshop shoes

Faux fur mini stole, horseshoe ring, Chanel lilac eye shadow, big furry throw for my bed + Marc Jacobs 'Daisy' perfume

Not pictured: Amazing crocheted panda earmuffs + heaps of chocolate 🙂

Marc by Marc Jacobs cashmere for under $100

With close-fitting jumpers set to be even bigger news in SS12, a neat cashmere sweater is a must – and Marc Jacobs has come to the rescue!

According to Nylon magazine, Marc by Marc Jacobs boutiques (there’s one on Mount St in Mayfair, London) will sell the reasonable cashmere – mini cardigans, jumpers, gloves, scarves and hats – for under the equivalent of $100. We’ll be sure to drop in and see if this is the case for the UK!

Cute crew sweater $82

Cashmere scarf $49 and available in lots of colours

Heavenly 7: Metallic dresses + more to die for

Everywhere you look there is a metallic party dress and the trend for metallics in less brash finishes is set to be strong in SS12…thank you Giles Deacon, Christopher Kane, Chanel, Versace et al.

Here are 7 heavenly pieces to get you through the party season (including a couple of ‘I wish’ purchases).

Stunning sequinned skirt £39.99 from Zara

Seriously spacey structured dress spotted in Cos (also has great perspex jewellery)

Pretty in pink lace metallic sleeveless top £28 from River Island

Ultimate golden party dress? Herve Leger embellished houndstooth bandage dress £4,230

V fashionable work of art: Marc Jacobs Iridescent paillette skirt £7,365

Kate Moss models for Louis Vuitton + parties with Fred

Marc Jacobs was on fashion form with his sixties-inspired collection for Louis Vuitton. Playful as you might expect, it was also elegant with some seriously skilled bead work and crocheting (we also really liked the roundabout setting).

The highlight of the show was Kate Moss in a stunning white dress. Voila!

Media Moi! Marc Jacobs + Kate Moss

She's still got it!

We love this fresh take on a 60s dress

Our fav dress?!

Fairground fun LV-style!

Moss was also out the night before to launch her collaboration with French jeweller Fred. See the ads and hefty price tags here.

Celebrity Watch! Cheryl Cole, Rachel McAdams, Dannii Minogue + Mollie King

From now on you can rely on Snap Fashion to bring you the most stylish celebs spotted over the weekend!

First up- The Saturdays’ Mollie King rocking the tricky leather trend whilst still managing to look cute. Apparently the band has got a deal in the US to be the stars of a new reality TV series.

Mollie rocks the leather trend with a 70s-ish twist

Cheryl Cole perfects ‘casual’ in hot New York with a panther print mini dress by Marc Jacobs and mini satchel by Ralph Lauren.

We love Cheryl's short and sweet dress

Rachel McAdams might have just finished filming Sherlock Holmes in London, but took a bit of British style back to LA with her in the form of this stylish trench coat and cute hat. We love the quirky leggings to freshen up a classic look.

Classic with a twist = stylish win

Meanwhile Dannii Minogue showed us how to do glamour with a seriously sparkly gown from her Project D range.

V glam for a book signing in WH Smiths!
