Even Amber Rose wearing a Givenchy panther print bomber jacket couldn't cure my obsession for Givenchy AW11. My inner Mowgli is just itching to get out.

The amazing Fausto Puglisi makes dresses so divine they'd put Cleopatra to shame. Think Greek goddess with a dash of Julius Caesar's battle armour with a pinch of Studio 54.
These dresses aren't for the shrinking violet, they come in an assortment of sherbet colours but at £7,000 a pop they aren't your typical pick n' mix.
As I'm writing this, I have coconut oil slathered in my hair. If you've faced the age old problem of not being able to grow out your hair then I highly suggest using this. This is a method mainly used by our Indian and Middle Eastern friends, both seem to have lucked out in the hair department. So this year I welcome you to try it with me and put down your straighteners, break up with your colourist (probably the hardest breakup you'll ever have to go through) and de-friend scissors. You may smell like you've entered a Miss Hawaiian Tropic competition but at least you should have beautiful, strong and healthy hair by the end of it.

I have scoured the globe high and low for these puppies in a 39. It was always going to take something extraordinary to get me roped into the whole idea of wearing velvet slippers. The idea originally seemed like a way of rebranding Hush Puppies which are almost on par with crocs. Having said this, beautifully soft raven black velvet (unlike the scratchy faded kind seen on slippers in a nursing home) with studs and a crest have totally won me over.
Sadly my epiphany looks to be fruitless as they're sold out. Blast.

Seriously considering getting a grill. Not the kind worn by 50 Cent in a stretch Hummer filled with enough girls to leave Hugh Hefner hanging his head in shame but something I can slip in to add a bit of je ne sais quois to my daily dress and boots combo.

I have recently developed an obsession for simplicity. Not just in clothing but in all aspects of my life, I've cut down on wearing jewellery, makeup and loud clothes. All I seem to want is straight hair, bare skin and 2 Valentino and 2 Roland Mouret dresses. How simple is that?

Christian Louboutin bags have never remotely interested me. I thought it was zero bang for plenty of bucks. I am generally more swayed towards classic bags I can justify with the good old excuse of being able to give them to my daughter one day.
Sadly for me, once I saw Louboutin's Mini Sweet Charity bag swinging off someones shoulder I knew I was hooked. Impractically small with an impossibly long chain they are so wrong that they are right especially when worn during the day.
Now the hardest decision is where to start my future collection, I'm leaning towards the tiger raffia or offensive gold watersnake.
Frightening to some, wonderful to many. Pierre Hardy's wedges in saltwater taffy shades belong on my feet winter, spring, summer and fall. Not only would they look smoking hot with cut offs and your fathers old gym tshirts (preferably washed) but they'd look equally as banging with black tights and an oversized sweater dress.

After getting myself into a financial cul-de-sac due to my inability to say NO to Alaia this probably isn't the smartest post.
This is quite simply the most beautiful selection of Alaia that I have ever seen. It has blown every other piece out of the water. Hopefully Moneysupermarket.com will accept my plea to take out a bumper sized loan to supply my wardrobe with the glittering gold, delicate, a-line dresses it so badly needs.
Isabel Marant makes the best sneakers in town. A concealed 3inch wedge heel provides all of the answers for the age old dilemma of comfort versus aesthetics. If Beyonce can manage an entire dance number in one of her highly choreographed music videos then don't doubt that you can bounce up and down the street wearing these bad boys without any toe pinching, blisters or potential bunions.
Excluding a Christian Louboutin give away, these are the answer to every shoe maniacs prayers.
