I had a dream not too long ago (call it a nightmare if you will) where my ma threw a python at me.

My fear of snakes meant I bolted upright at around 3am and spent the rest of the night in a cold sweat. Somewhere in there I made a little midnight bready snack involving peanut butter and jam - you know to help me fall asleep ; p

Well if I could have woken up and seen these Prada snakeskin stunners things would have gone much better.

Lush! I'm still trying to track down which of the girls in the AnOther team put these up. Very tempted to pretend to need something from under the desk of the AnOther side of the office and see if I can spy these mamajama's up close. Oh and did I tell you they've only gone and asked me to stay on here at Dazed & Confused and offered me a job!!!

Praise the Lord indeed.

Yikes! I'm in trouble aren't I.

The whole of July and not even a single post from me.

My conscious is beating me up big stylee.

And now we're in August and I got the nerve to pick up my virtual pen and start writing... well I better make up for lost time.

Wow I've been away a pretty second but what a pretty second it has been.

After THE most amazing five days in Glastonbury I received the great news that I am starting as a Dazed and Confused Digital Marketing Intern tomorrow.

Mega! Seriously extra large.

Chuffed to bits.

So welcome back gang and let's get this blog back on the road.

The grand-papa of UK festivals is merely three days away now and with heavy rain clouds forecast looks like it's full on mud madness this year.

This photograph by Brain Walker is THE one. Beam me up Scotty! This gang is mega.

Wah! of the day to bring some joy before the weekend.



Seriously that Phoebe Philo kills me every season.

Well tailored, paired down luxe has always been a lustful area of fashion - my main point of reference 70s YSL and co, however what Phoebe does at Celine is present this to an audience that may have not been around during those hedonistic years of dressing.

Look at the colours, textures and pointy edges of the AW11 collection, it's so sharp it it's kind of giving me a nose bleed. And I love it.


Indeed, it takes a lot of confidence to pull of basics and precision tailoring with aplomb and style. In the early millennium we were bombarded with too much 'bling' (man I hate that word but it is the only way to capture that look) and it took a wave of designers to give us some respite from what was fast becoming crass and

Still sick of it? Go on take some fashion pills courtesy of Phoebe.

Now where's that Celine Pre-SS12 collection to kill me softly.
