With the amazing Wimbledon men's final today, I thought I'd do a Tennis post. I love seeing all the TWAGs (Tennis Wives and Girlfriends) at the matches, with their blonde hair and massive sunglasses! Kim Sears (Andy Murray's girlfriend, on the left), Jelena Ristic (Novak Djokovic's girlfriend, in the middle) and Brooklyn Decker (Andy Roddick's wife on the right), always look utterly impeccable. The Murray/Federer match was amazing, and my opinion of Murray (which, admittedly, was quite negative) has improved dramatically after his speech at the end; I nearly started crying with him!
I've loved the Christian Dior AW12 Couture, Raf Simons has done a fantastic collection, as we all expected! In my opinion the full skirts and the feminine silhouettes are what made it amazing, the cigarette pants were fantastic too.
I love this summery picture of Audrey Hepburn, and Breakfast at Tiffany's has got to be one of my all time favourite films. I always cry when Holly chucks Cat out of the car at the end; I don't think I'd ever forgive someone who did that!
I went back to sixth form today, and being really nerdy, I am really looking forward to A2 English Literature; the course looks fantastic. You are able to pick your own book within certain themes, so I'm going to buckle down and read lots over the next few weeks (click here for a look if you're interested).
Has anyone got any good/favourite reads they would recommend?
Every season, without fail, I wait with eager anticipation for Elie Saab's show. In my opinion, although not the most varied of designers, the dresses he creates are some of the most magical I have ever seen. You can imagine them being worn by Russian princesses for an incredibly chic and exotic ball, with waltzes and dancing and champagne and stylish gentlemen offering their arms. Elie Saab, for me, creates a glamourous dreamworld in every single collection - just the feeling of the dresses would make you feel incredible, with all the sparkle and embellishment and chantilly lace. Oh my! I'm already envying the lucky celebrities that will wear these on the red carpet!
I am a massive fan of Mulberry and love their new campaign. Autumn is one of my favourite seasons and I love wrapping up for the cold, crisp English weather (e.g. rain as per). I like the 'Where the Wild Things are' vibe this has with the fluffy monster in the background and, of course, the bags are to die for.
I'm still a bit undecided about the Del Rey bag though (in the last image), most people seem to love it but I'm not too sure.
