For ages, I have wanted a Juicy Couture bracelet, and finally, whilst in Boston, I bought myself a Juicy Couture charm bracelet. Now all I need are the charms, and here are my favourites which I hope to add to the bracelet sooner rather than later!

Edinburgh Charity Fashion Show 2

My second post on the Edinburgh Charity Fashion Show continues, and I am using this post to showcase some of my favourite outfits from the night. So without further ado, here is the collection by Liam Freeman. I love the royal blue contrasted with black. The fact that only two colours were the palette was a risky choice, but the tailoring and use of constrictive fits contrasted with slouchy designs make for a very interesting collection.

I absolutely love this jacket- the blue leather
panelling is unusual and is a nice shock of colour.
The fact that it is leather gives it a racy, S&M feel too.

I love the slouchy yet fitted tailoring of the top,
whilst the pants with the blue stripe could have
looked like racer pants, the fit of them make them
sleek and very sexy.

The different textures of this dress and the
constricted look of the dress are very in right now.
I love the leather shoulder detail.

When I see this, I think of Top Gun. And I mean that in
a sexy, chic way! It's baggy, yet fits the curves to perfection
I also love the black pockets.

Edinburgh Charity Fashion Review One

The first in my series of reviews of the collections at the wonderful Edinburgh Charity Fashion Show. There was a lot of black featured as well as a heavy palette of neutrals with a wide variety of different materials and textures working together and layered to create unusual outfits that suited the rock-ish theme. The first collection that I shall review is by Anneliese Hatt, a 2011 graduate from Nottingham Trent University.

I love this coat, the lattice detail looks like
it's somehow crocheted leather, and the lack of
sleeves gives it a dominatrix feel, something that
still resonates from A/W 2011.

The slouchy blazer is something that can be worn with so many outfits, and I particularly like the layering of different neutral colours. I also love the detail of the neckline being a necklace of what are like belts- a very unusual feature.

Although a black chiffon sheer blouse may not seem
completely out of the box, I really like the cut of this one
making it seem quite loose-fitting and the silk panels give
it a more expensive look.

Sheer, black, sexy, and edgy would be four words
to define this collection.

This silk number would be very versatile, it could be used during the day paired with tights and boots and can even be worn at night for casual drinks paired with a sexy pair of black heels or colourful heels for a pop of colour. Accessorize with a clutch and load up on necklaces.

I love the sheer neckline and the use of
flower print on it, making it both feminine
yet very edgy. A classic LBD made with a twist.

Edinburgh Charity Fashion Show

As some of you may already know due to my constant rants on Twitter, I have been immersed in hunting for flats, (thank God for Citylets having an iPhone app, I'm on it about a dozen times a day), but on Thursday, I decided to take a much-deserved break from trawling the streets of Edinburgh for flats by attending  the Edinburgh Charity Fashion Show. As I got myself ready for the show which is run by students, I must say, with the sleek and fantastic attention to detail to the eclectic variety of collections, I've never been more proud to be an Edinburgh Uni student! The show was set in an old lecture hall of Edinburgh, as dim blue lighting set the scene with a bright white catwalk. The bar, which was set in an old biology lab and was aptly named The Lab,  had bartenders in white lab coats offering refreshing concoctions and trays of cupcakes and free candy, this fashion show was certainly not restricted to your visual senses. Over the next few posts, I will be featuring my favourite collections from the show.
