September 30, 2011 in fashion by Lauren

Keeping with the fall accessories theme of this week, online retailer Net-A-Porter has put together a guide to the hottest trends in bags for the new season – and with five to choose from, there’s sure to be one you love.

Check out the clever clip below and find your new best friend (I think mine could be the minimalist Marni Perforated Leather Tote). What’s your favourite style?

lusting for: sidewalks of new york scarf

September 28, 2011 in fashion by Lauren

Autumn is definitely on the way. There’s a crispness to the mornings and when I woke up 30 mins earlier than normal today, it was still dark!

I’ve already professed my love for cooler-weather clothing and scarves are definitely one of my favourite ways to fall-ify an outfit.

Kate Spade has some fabulous offering this year and I’m really taken with the Sidewalks of New York scarf.

Not only is it a map (and I do love to wear a map) but it’s 100% wool and it’s red, white and black so it fits perfectly into my existing wardrobe.

If you would like to add one to your own fall line-up, you can buy it from Kate Spade for $145.

(almost) at the movies: being elmo

September 26, 2011 in movies by Lauren

I was doing my weekly trailer trawl tonight when I came across a film that I simply cannot wait to see. I hadn’t heard about it at all before but I suspect it will be universally loved once it hits the big screen next month.

Being Elmo is the story of Kevin Clash, a boy who was teased for making his own puppets but grew up to create one of the most loved of all Muppets – Elmo. The film is narrated by Whoopi Golberg and it won the US Documentary Special Jury Prize at Sundance this year.

Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey will be released on October 21 in the US (no word on other countries at this stage).

lusting for: rodna halter dress

September 18, 2011 in fashion by Lauren

There’s been a lot going on in the Anthro blogging world over the past few days (Jewish Girl can give you the round-up) but regardless of what’s going on in the blogosphere, I have nothing but love for the newest arrivals at my favourite store!

I am particularly a big fan of the Rodna Halter Dress (right). It has shot to the top of my wishlist – I can see myself wearing it throughout the cooler months to all my special occasions, including all my Christmas parties.

It is made of gorgeous green corduroy and has a removable halter strap. I can imagine twirling on the dance floor in that full skirt and my fingers are crossed that it will be in stock when I get to London later this week. I’ll update with a review if it is.

The Rodna Halter Dress is available from Anthropologie for $158 (it was also on the European website last week but has now mysteriously disappeared).

Here’s one for my twihards – the longer, more revealing trailer for Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1 is here… and you even get a little bit of a glimpse of Bella’s wedding dress. Enjoy!
