My Hatred Of Ilness & Other Shocking News

HEADLINE 1: I am ill, and its summer.
Yes, that's right. I'm ill and it is summer. Just halfway through a perfectly normal week, out comes the old flu/cold virus. In summer. How on earth can you catch a cold IN 18 DEGREES!? That's what i want to know. I'm in bed feeling all sniffly while everyone is outside. Life's a cow.
HEADLINE 2: anya hindmarch bag not eco-friendly?
ok, so this is what i read in the paper today so it must true but apparently the so-called Anna bags are not eco friendly. According to the DAILY MAIL, the bag was made by cheap chinese labour. Sounds awfully dull, but still rather shocking.
HEADLINE 3: BOOHOO.COM.. my new fave website.
How cool are these? And for under £10 each, i think they are worth getting. I got this lovely link off LOOK magazine, and having checked it out there are loads of great purchases to be ordered off this cool Internet store. I loved the way there was loads of rock inspired pieces, as i am a self confessed rock chick. :)
They remind me of lindsay lohan too, which can never be a bad thing.
HEADLINE 4: Alexander Mcqueen catwalk spring/summer 07 review.
i do love Alexander's shows, and this was not one to disappoint. It was a beautiful show, and the models paraded down the catwalk under a huge crystal chandelier to live opera music, with a real vintage/classical feel to it. The clothes, although not exactly my taste, were effortlessly sexy without being in the least bit slutty, and had some amazing volumuous ruffle dresses. The models were all styled wonderfully, with ghostly make-up and spider webbed hair, along with huge floral hats and hair pieces. Although, my favourite pieces have to be the shoes. They were just so unique, but yet simply designed. Interesting, but classically shaped. You get the picture. But what amazed me is that they made clear plastic (a big trend that i hate) look good. They accessorise the same shoe lots of times to make it completely different, and all looked gorgeous. I also loved the court shoes, as they were just a classic shape, but with a higher toe so they look more quirky.

I love Alexander McQueen too and I'm totally agree with you , his SS/07 collection was perfect . Love the makeup , the hair , the location for the fashion show , the surroundings and ...the clothes . Dresses are so romantic , so poetic and the shoes with the flowers ...love it !
