Purchase of the Month or my new favorite UGG!

You would be surprised at the amount of anti-UGG comments I hear from diehard fashionistas (who think UGGs are just plain ugly) and health fanatics (who claim that UGGs are bad for your posture).....To fashionistas I say: if the stars of Gossip Girl own every UGG model imaginable...so can we. I'll worry about ten other unhealthy habits of mine, before I think of UGGs affecting my posture..whatever.

I bought my first pair of UGGs two years ago and never looked back. They are probably the second most practical and comfortable fashion invention since the chain bag. In winter I practically live in my UGGs!

As I completely wrecked my classic short black boots and my long pink ones don’t really go well with many outfits - I snagged a new pair yesterday: black Bailey Buttons. Although black is super practical and will go with everything, deep purple boots were just as nice . Can't wait to wear this newest purchase with my shearling jacket )P.

Look of the Day: Keira Knightley in Chanel Haute Couture

First off - I love Keira's new haircut! Chanel Haute Couture dress is perfection! Love how she paired it with satin platform pumps!

play time: or the toy bags of Fashion Weeks

Tommy Ton snapped this uber cute Chanel Kokeshi doll and unidentified Stitchy look-a-like bag (I suspect its by Giles Deacon) during spring/summer 2011 fashion weeks.

Hot Label Alert: Sandro

thanks to my French copine I discovered a very hot Parisian label: Sandro. As of last week Brown Thomas Dublin has a new consession on the second floor. It's edgier than French Connection and bang on trend like Zara, with prices starting at 120 euro for fabulous tops and dresses. I tried on pretty much every piece from their fall/winter collection. The highlights are wool mix blazers, fantastic skirts and leather shirts and wool mix dresses with full circle bottom. I highly recommend checking this label out. You can shop online. Alternatively, Sandro has shops all over continental Europe, London and Manchester.

Oddity of the Day: Jimmy Choo for Ugg

when this collaboration was first announced I was weirded out... and now I know why! Check out the latest Jimmy Choo creations for Ugg. These things are not only grossly overpriced but also tasteless. The above 'Mandah' - studded overkill of a shoe - retails for £695...I mean really? the entire collection is hideous...

Sonia Rykiel Spring/Summer RTW 2011

Sonia Rykiel Spring Summer RTW collection made me smile from ear to ear. Nathalie Rykiel's designs were a bit more relaxed and baggier this year, which I liked. The highlight was Nathalie's version of D&G underwear defile: models marched down the catwalk in stripy tops and hotpants :). I'm all inspired and will be wearing my Sonia for H&M colorful sweater dress tomorrow!

Oddity of the Day: Salma Hayek in a Turban

Salma often gets it almost right...but not quite. Like this outfit is perfect..except for her odd looking turban....Not sure what Salma was going for...but it didn't end well.

Economize vs Fantasize: silver stud ring

It's not the first time I blog about this Stephen Webster ring. I simply adore it! But it gets better: Kenneth Jay Lane's creation is a carbon copy of the superstud ring for a quater of the price...SCORE!

Style Hit or Miss: Bell Bottoms

MISS: Byrdie Bell

oh my ….Byrdie Bell hit a MISS jackpot with this one: slim fit, high-waisted, pale pink brocade bell bottoms with white t-shirt tucked in……there are waaaaay too many oxymorons in this outfit! I'm dying to get a pair of scissors and cut the bottom, chop the waist by 20 cm…or better yet…toss these pants away, coz nothing good can come out of this fabric.

HIT: Rachel Zoe

My favorite Mrs Zoe always looks relaxed and hip in bell bottoms. These bell bottom jeans are oldies but goodies!

Economize vs Fantasize: Lace-up Boots

Economize: Aldo £100
