In my opinion you need to have a statement piece in your wardrobe – it can be a great pair of shoes, statement necklace, amazing rings or a bag! Valentino designed this stunning feather crystal embellished clutch for a luxury statement piece. Its beautiful pink leather, black and white feathers, and a bead embellishment makes for a stunning accessory. The crystallized birds perched at the top of the clutch complete the look. This amazing bag would look elegant with any evening outfit for a glamorous cocktail night out. Price: £2,380 available at net-a-porter.com
Some people may say it’s ugly, overpowering but it’s a statement piece and it has to be different to an ordinary clutch – but that’s only my option. What’s yours? Justyna xx

Shoulder Pads! So we have seen them before but some designers like Rachel Freire took them in her collection to a totaly different level. Entitled ‘Fashion Noir,’ collection can’t help but scream fierceness. I bet Lady Gaga would love to wear them :)What do you think? Justyna xx

Unfortunately that’s true! For the past four years we have seen thirteen collections which truly showers Kate’s style and personality. I think that this coming fourteen collection will be one of her best ones! We will see beautiful maxi dress, bohemian style tops, jackets and vintage inspired jewellery range. All that will be available on the 2nd November. Great news is that from next year she will be designing limited edition drops and a new label, ‘Iconic Kate’, which futures re-released beautiful pieces from the previous fourteen collections.
Kate also teamed up with Brighton-based Topshop concession Orelia for a jewellery range too. We will see pendants, cocktail rings and star necklaces inspired by her tattoos and her passion for vintage-chic style. So worth to wait another year to see that! Have a great weekend everyone! Justyna xx

I love cakes, who doesn't! But if you want to make someone’s birthday super stylish and super special why not to get a personalised cake for your fashionista friend? Chanel’s been always my favourite label but having a cake in a shoe or a bag shape that sounds superb to me! So if your special day is today – Happy Birthday! Justyna xx

Behind the scene video with Anne which you must check out!
What a wonderful photo shoot! I am getting those update emails from Vogue and as soon as I saw those pictures I thought I will share it with you guys! What a beautiful shoot of Anne Hathaway in the Art Nouveau dining room of the real Maxim’s in Paris; photograprhed by the famous Mario Testino. She wore amazing dresses by Miu Miu, Oscar de la Renta, Caroline Herrera and many more great designers. I love the mood of that shoot - so stunning and I think Anne has done a great job and proved to us again that she is not only a great actress who we truly love but she is also this super stylish girl.

I mentioned that great news on my blog already but........a preview image from the Lanvin for H&M collection was just released! Hurraaaa, how exciting! The models, from left, are Hannelore Knuts, Jane Schmitt, Tati Collitar, and Natasha Poly—all shot by David Sims looking amazing in the fabulous dresses! The one-shoulded puff dresses, ruffled LBDs, textured trenches, and tuxedo tops are exactly what we'd hoped Alber Elbaz would diffuse for his H&M collection. We have to wait until November until the full collection of images are released (that's 30 pieces and 15 accessories for women, and 25 pieces and 10 accessories for men). Luckily November is just round the corner so bring it on! Justyna xx

What an amazing place! Lauren Santo Domingo (Contributing Editor of Vogue US) gets an inside look at the Gramercy Park, Manhattan apartment of model Coco Rocha and her newly wedded husband James Conran. She purchased this amazing place three years ago and with a help of interior designer this place looks amazing. I love the mixture of different colours and textures; in my opinion stunning!

**Fall/Winter 10 - Lace Trend** by on Polyvore.com
Wow - Anna Del Russo rocking this trend! With that body you can girl! Amazing!
To me this trend is a triumph of feminity and elegance and most of us can pull this trend very well. It’s easy to style and gives a lot of variations to our day or evening outfits. I will definitely add a lace dress to my shopping list for next month! Lol Justyna xx

My perfect camel coat! by featuring a Polyvore
This colour is going to be on every girl’s radar this Fall/Winter. So loving the camel colour trend! Nude was a massive trend for this Spring/Summer 10 but camel is going to be the KEY neutral piece in the colder months which will form the anchor for all of your outfits. This season we are going to see everything from wool skirts to cotton tops to leather dresses and bags all being made available in varying camel tones, which means you can pick and choose just how much you want to incorporate into your F/W outfits. Chloe being a major backer of mixing camel tones to create the “new nude” for winter. Tailored camel pants, light roll neck tops and the staple overcoat all made an appearance, were some of my favourite looks from all the variations we saw in the previews. Nicole Farhi was also a strong backer of the trend, marching models down the runway in belted camel coats which gave them that all important womanly silhouette.
In my opinion whether you invest in the ultra-hot camel coat, a well-placed accessory, or simply a camel sweater to pair with black, brown and denim, it's a classic colour worth owning. Perfect for the office as well as when you really need some sophistication in your life. So ladies let's do some shopping! Justyna xx

To me this trend is the best come back from all the F/W 10 trends. If you want to add some chic for a nightime date or event, then simply throw your cape on over the top of a statement dress, match with heels and clutch and you have an elegant look with an added edge and high fashion feel to it. Plus it will show off just enough flesh on your bottom half to keep eyes firmly on you. Try to keep detailing subtle, and it will allow you to pair it with any item you have in your wardrobe in order to create new outfits and looks on the fly as the new trends develop. Capes came in all styles, shapes and sizes, which mean there is bound to be one which matches your wardrobe and flatters your figure. Have fun ladies! Justyna xx
My Femme Fatale moodboard
My trend report prize
Last weekend on Sunday, 3rd October I attended the Fashion Workshop organised by TopStylista (www.topstylista.com). The workshop was run by two amazing ladies; Chantelle Znideric, Award winning Personal Stylist and founder of TopStylista and Mandy Deal, Fashion Stylist.
I must say I was hugely impressed with the way they designed the workshop. It was a mixture of theoretical and practical aspects of fashion styling. Knowing that it was only a day workshop, we covered a lot of topics during the day. Mandy and Chantelle explained in detail how to get into this very exciting ‘Styling World’ with a few key tips. These were namely how to build your fashion CV, how to get into the internship jobs and how to assist on fashion shoots. We also learnt how to use a clothes steamer and how to dress a mannequin – and trust me there is a technique to that too!
Prior to this course, they asked us to prepare the Trend Report for Fall/Winter 2010 which was great fun. We all read the glossy magazines and keep on checking on the latest trends but digging out all the info and putting a report together was great practice. I have picked the following five trends: Leather, Lace, Cape, Camel colour and Military trends as my key Fall/Winter trends. I absolutely love the lace trend – so feminine and elegant. To my surprise my trend report won the amazing price - ‘Atlas of fashion designers’.
At the end of the workshop we received this very exciting task to build a fashion mood board. I used the lace trend to create mine and I called it – Femme Fatale. By using a combination of lace items with simple black fitted jacket and heavy make up, I aimed for the sophisticated and elegant look.
I can fully recommend the workshop to anyone who is trying to break into Styling World. Mandy and Chantelle did a fantastic job with sharing their knowledge and experience with us and I really hope that one day I will be able to work with both of them. Justyna xx
