When in doubt, wear spots (especially when suffering fashion winter woes).

Clogs – At first these shoes seemed clumpy and cumbersome. I found it hard to picture them as anything but a clichéd Dutch traditional costume piece. Now I lust. I have visited Topshop many times in the hopes that a pair will magically fit me (I have teeny tiny feet). But no. It also seems that no other shoe shops in NZ have been stocking them yet? Maybe I shall have to wait for spring to set in for this bonafide over seas mania to set in.
Over the knee boots – Initially I couldn’t get the connection with hooker boots out of my mind. Plastic, skin tight, 10 inch heels with matching whip. But now I am officially swayed. Having seen them on friends of mine they are definitely not plastic, hookerish nor come with a whip, but strong, feminine and fab!
Temporary tats – introduced by chanel I was unconvinced. I thought the only way to get temporary tats was free with your bubblegum. I also thought the price tag of $78 (US) seemed a little steep for something that could rub off in the shower. Despite this still being true, I think they have achieved a look of delicate beauty and I would LOVE to find just the right occasion to wear one!

I have always thought I would have enjoyed being born in the Disco era. So I am very much enjoying its comeback in some much more stylish/wearable forms.
I want my next purchase to be of the glitter kind, but, dear bloggers, can I really convince myself of its use in my wardrobe?

Cleo used to be one of those secret affair magazines for me.
I never wanted to admit I would read the mag telling me how to lose 10 pounds while eating chocolate. But I did. And I loved it. Over recent years Cleo has fallen to the waist side as my magazine pocket money has been used up on lots of other 300 dpi delights.
But I have noticed it has recently updated its look. And I love it. Being a die-hard print media queen, the step away from trashy Cosmo style, to the slightly chic Nylon look has made a huge difference. Good move members of Cleo team, it looks like a magazine I would happily leave in my handbag to whip out on the bus.
So the other day, when I awoke at the ungodly hour of 7:30am (on a SATURDAY), to trek to my doctor, I came prepared with this months Cleo. Not only is it looking amazing (I am loving the Pixie Shoot). It has done a ‘designer collaboration’ with Karen Walker, a very interesting look into what Walker thinks are the fashion hits of the season and who are her behind the scenes go to girls.
Definitely grab yourselves a copy this month!
Chloe, I have always liked your name. I have often been less then impressed with her clothes (handbags are a different matter – have always fancied a Chloe hanging off my arm).
Chloe, I enjoy your fall season. It could do with a touch less multi coloured knits, and a sprinkle more gorgeously fitting structured dresses. But overall, I am fan.
That is all.

I wish. If she was, she would give me lots of free clothes and I would be a very happy chappy. Juliette Hogan is actually a very talented designer, and although her latest collection has been out for a while, I got re-drawn to it after a good friend of mine bought a cape of hers. It is beautiful. It looks well made, completely fashion forward, cute and warm. If I didn’t already own one cape, I would probably go hungry for a few months and buy one for myself.
Her collection is effortlessly beautiful and feminine, the perfect place to find a frock for your next do. Or really anything. I am very much looking forward to her next collection.
