Never too much black.

I have been thinking recently- maybe I wear too much black in my every day choice of outfits. Is it okay if over 70 percent of what you wear is predomenantly black?

Maybe my fear of wearing too much of this morbid colour comes from sharing a room with a goth once in my teens. During those dark times, I remember making a sincere promise to myself that I would never want to look like a goth.

FANNY AND JESSY have made me want to wear black even more - their genius use of different black fabris can look ultra chic and although there are hints of punk goth I like to think it is more lady Ga Ga.

Here are some of my favourite looks by F and J.

When I grow up I want to be Twiggy.

Twiggy a legendary icon, her look revolutionized the perception of feminine beauty and pushed the fashion industry to modernity.

Take a trip to 80s DISCO
we love the 80s, it's flirty, fun and colourful, 80s is a recurring theme in the fashion scene and i doubt the trend will disappear from our wardrobes anytime soon.

Reasons why i love Alexander Wang

Californian born, Chinese-American designer Alexander Wang has brought fierce urban chic to the New York fashion scene.
His clothes are for confident women who are not afraid to experiment, for women who want to look elegant but urban at the same time, women who are not yet ready to fully commit to the dull everyday working suit but want something more edgy.
Wang successfully re-interpets everyday women's clothes into something sexy, chic and contemporary that is so wearable providing comfort at the same time.
Below are my favourites from his Spring 2009 Collection, which shows a hint of the 80s with beautiful cuts and bold colours.
Still under 25 years of age and presenting his 7th collection this year, i cant wait to see what he does next.
