This coming Saturday the 30th of October, I will be attending Buy My Wardrobe – a London fashion recycling event where fashion’s finest invite you to buy their wardrobes.
You will be able to purchase pieces from the wardrobes of stylists, designers and industry insiders, collectively known as the ‘wardrobe mistresses’ (pictured right). Each mistress will have her very own boutique-style space to display 50 to 100 pieces from their cupboards. Confirmed Wardrobe Mistresses include: Francesca Salih, Stylist for Net-a-Porter; Lou Hay, Designer at Matthew Willamson; and Sammi Brown, Great Grand-Daughter to the Marks & Spencer Empire.
Some of the treasures up for sale include: Jimmy Choos for just £120 and Louboutin pigalle shoes, originally £375 for just £150. You may also discover the Gucci shoes and limited Edition Burberry coat which are pictured right.
Kal Di Paola, Founder of Buy My Wardrobe, says of the event;
“This event is not just about offering remarkable savings of up to 70% on retail prices; it is also about creating a new way to bring environmental concerns – fast becoming part of every woman’s consciousness – into the regular shopping routine.”
The event starts at 1pm, on the 30th October at Adam Street Members Club, London, and entry costs £5. VIP tickets are also available for £20 which includes a champagne preview hour, starting at 12noon.

Monday Make-up Spotlight…
Statement Lips At Fendi
Fendi’s Spring / Summer 2011 collection (pictured above) popped with striking lip colours that just make you want to kiss! Shades of fluorescent melon, cerise, and fuchsia were hand-mixed by Make-up artists to achieve these luscious statement lips. Hair was straight and left down while eyes were left natural; drawing all focus to those spectacular lips! So don’t shy away from the make-up spotlight; make your lips hard to miss!
Dark Eyes A La Chanel
Season after season nothing says sexy like smoky, dark eyes. Chanel perfected this look, bringing drama, edge and mysterious beauty to its Spring / Summer 2011 collection (pictured below). Chanel’s Global Creative Director of Make-Up, Peter Philips, used an emerald tinged onyx black shade on eyes. Hair was perfectly neat while lips and cheeks were kept natural with just a little rosy shimmer. When emphasising the smoky eye, expect a dark, alluring summer!
In The Pink At Nina Ricci
Going pink from lash to brow, Nina Ricci’s collection was all about the eyelids (pictured below). Pretty, feminine and whimsical; the make-up and styling perfectly accompanied the look and feel of the collection. Mascara and eyeliner were kept to a minimum, drawing you in to the models’ lovely big eyes. Porcelain skin and messily swept back hair also hit just the right spot. For oh so pretty lids, make it pink!
What darling make-up looks are you excited to try or simply cannot live without? xx

Stefano Gabbana not a Stella McCartney fan
In a recent twitter conversation, Stefano Gabbana expressed his feelings toward Stella McCartney. Replying to tweets about McCartney with a Twitter friend, Gabbana finished their conversation with ‘Yeah, she’s upcoming after 15 years doing nothing!! Hahahaha’, ‘Aaaaaaa …… I see you appreciate nonentities!! Bravo!’. The awkward exchange was translated from Italian and has been circulating online.
