As 2013 draws to an end and everyone looks back on the year; reminiscing and dwelling on could haves, would haves and should haves; I have reflected on the year in fashion. From fabulous handbags to the latest trends, new store openings and celebrity clothing lines, I have put together some memorable fashion highlights from over the last 365 days.
Starting with my favourite, my inspirations, my main man; Marc Jacobs.

Marc Jacobs leaves Louis Vuitton

After 16 spectacular years as Louis Vuitton’s creative director, Marc Jacobs announced that he would be leaving the French fashion house to focus on his own brands. Since joining Louis Vuitton in 1997, Marc Jacobs transformed the luggage brand and created something sensational. The announcement came at the end of Paris Fashion week, where Jacobs truly put on a show for his last collection with LV; making a memorable exit.

Orange is the new black

With a summer of bright and vibrant colours, orange was definitely a personal favourite. From a bright Celine bag and statement shoes to a pop of colour and a pretty summer dress, orange was very much “the new black”. Even as winter  approached, the trend continued in beanie hats, Kenzo jumpers and even a few fur coats.

Kate Moss poses for Playboy

As Kate Moss approaches 40, she proves to be younger than ever as she is shot nude for the cover of Playboy. To celebrate 60 years of the worlds favourite men’s magazine (and brand), the January/ February (2014) issue will feature Britain’s face of fashion. The Supermodel will also appear in a 18-page pictorial in the coming Anniversary double issue. So watch this space.

D&G are sent to prison

The fashion designer duo; Dolce and Gabbana were sentenced to jail for tax evasion. Although the pair were initially cleared on the charge in 2011, the case was opened again and the 2 were accused of hiding million (in euros) from the Italian tax authorities. As it stands Dolce and Gabbana have avoided life behind bars (until further notice)  due to their suspended sentences, as a result of a pending appeal. Once again, watch this space.

Suits up

From the catwalks of fashion week to the urban runway that is street fashion, 2013 has seen more and more matchy matchy outfits. Matching tops to bottoms, the trend is very classical yet extremely modern, with an alternative twist. Going for the boyish look, some of the trend involves the traditional blazer and trouser type of suit, where others  are slightly more up to date and refreshing; matching crops to bottoms.

Heres to the end of 2013 and welcoming yet another year of fabulous memories, once -in-a-lifetime moments and plenty of glitz and glam! Let the countdown begin and bring on Two Thousand and Fourteen.

So last Saturday (9th November) marced yet another special day; My Birthday!

The Perfect Diet Coke

The Perfect Diet Coke

My dedication to Marc Jacobs has me buying Diet Coke. I don’t even drink Coke. Even as one who always take the sugar-free, less fat, diet, lite, extra lite and what ever has the least calories option; Diet Coke has never really floated my boat. But celebrating 30 years of the sugarless Brown fizz (Diet Coke) and with Marc Jacobs as the new creative director, I was not about to walk passed these limited edition beauties without picking one or two or three up!

There are 3 different designs, one for each decade that Diet Coke has graced us with its presence; 80s, 90s and 00s. Personally, as a 90s baby, this one is of course my fav and just because its the nicest!

This is the point where i admit to my obsession and confess to my addiction. To be honest I can’t pin point what it is about Marc Jacobs but all i know is i love him and I am hopelessly obsessed with his simple yet elegant, fashionable and unique designs.

With Marc Jacobs on my “New York Shopping List” and having recently fallen in love with his new watch collection, I knew i had to come back with one. And like i said before, There is just something about the mini orange leather strapped, small faced watch that i love. These days i have a “thing” for orange, so I just knew this was the one!

Whilst the Dollar rate to the pound may not have been great, at 1.5 it was the best i was gonna get. Plus with Macy’s 10% off visitor’s card, who was i to complain.

I went for it

Its that “time” of year again. Literally. New watch season, and I love it. Of course i had to be the first to trail and test these new Marc Jacob’s watches. After all, where Marc is, I follow closely behind. Whilst I may have recently purchased A Michael Kors watch, I was torn and I am destined for a Marc by Marc watch, but had a last minute change of heart when it came to the rose gold beauty.

It is defiantly time to invest in a mini Marc. They are all too cute, to leave behind. But which one will it be?

Made from leather, these bright strap watches are perfect for summer and whats more, they feel so nice on. For some reason recently I’ve had this “thing” for orange but then that pink and rose gold link watch is too cute to say no to.

I will have to wait and see what my trip to New York brings. That and my finances of course. But if all fails, I’ve still got a connection in the business. #cheeky grin
