Christian Louboutins are back in nude and in every shade! From flat ballerina pumps, to stilettos, T-bar heels, sophisticated court shoes pointed and peep toes; Louboutin have a shoe for every woman and better yet, they all come in an array of “skin tone” shades! So with summer around the corner (I use the term “summer” loosely in the UK), you can go nude all over- well almost!

When fashion is inspired by art and art is inspired by fashion; its just one big cycle; and it will continue to go around, then come back round again!

A contributor to the De Stijl art movement, Piet Mondrian was (and still is today), known for his abstract compositions of primary colours (red, blue and yellow) in a black grid of vertical and horizontal lines, against a white background; Mondrian !

His classic compositions were also used as backdrops in the fashion industry, before taking the catwalk in 1965 in the form of an A-line shift dress by Yves Saint Laurent. This iconic “Mondrian dress” was debuted in the Autumn/Winter ’65 season in both a jersey and wool knee length style shift dress.

Since then, similar dresses and other garments alike have been re-inspired and reproduced. Some taking the runway like the infamous YSL piece and others straight to high-street stores or street fashion.

When the hot and sexy, yet oh so sophisticated Louboutins you want, don’t just have a “Red Bottom” but are red all over! – Plus, there’s a stunning studded shoulder bag to match!
[see what i did there?!]

Red Christian Louboutins would never have been my first choice, however these red Anjalina stilettos lightly embellished with gold studs, are gorgeous! Personally, I’m not big on the studs trend, but the few used here (rather than in excess, as typically fashioned) work to this particular shoe’s advantage. Its as if each stud was well thought through in regards to positioning and delicately placed on the beautiful red leather- and I love it! This is definitely the kind of style i’d go for, when it comes to a red studded heel! #WishList

We’ve all been there, done that and as a result, know how much it sucks. It’s ok from time to time, just don’t let it become a habit because that’s when it becomes a problem. I’d rather have the confessions of a shopaholic than regret of a sensible person! Wouldn’t you? With summer drawing to an end so are the sales, and if it already hasn’t AW collections are about to hit the stores.

So history doesn’t repeat itself, keep an eye out for that winter favourite, because it’ll be gone in a flash. With that said, some stores still have final clearance sales, so if an item you’ve had your eyes on is still up for grabs, go grab it while you still can or the ghost of fashions past will be on a new haunt! Just saying!

I know I haven’t posted anything Chanel related in a while, so this is certainly well overdue, yet I still do not know what to say. I quite literally am speechless. Truth be told, all I want to do is put up a row (or five) of the smiley faces with the red love heart eyes, since I’m pretty sure that’s what my eyes did-still doing in fact. This Chanel Boy bag is B-E-A-UTIFUL! There’s nothing else to it, it’s perfect. There’s no “I like it, but…” Or ” yeah, if…” to it, it just is. I like everything about it; the colour, size, style, detailing, material, even the box it comes in; I love it.

If perfection was a handbag, this finely crafted Chanel black leather Boy bag, would definitely be it. I can not fault Mr. Lagerfeld at all. For me, It’s the brocade style detailing that I adore the most; it gives the bag so much more depth, making it more visually appealing and unique. Why go for the traditional plain black or quilted classic in the Boy, when you can have this? The raised brocade texture without a doubt completes this luxury fashion accessory; representing Chanel at its finest!

Walking down the runway at Chanel’s haute couture show in Paris, Cara Delevingne had heads turning once again, as she wow’d the audience in Karl Largerfeld’s bridal designs. Looking extremely elegant in the delicately embellished bridal-style dress, the supermodel made her way down the catwalk in a feather headdress; followed by a page boy, also in a glamourous white suit. What surprised everyone most, were the luxurious, yet extremely casual trainers that completed Cara’s ensemble; as well as completeing every other couture outfit on the Chanel runway.

Pick of the day

Pick of the day

Forgot ‘pic of the day’ this is the bag of the day, or is it a jacket? what is it? Posted this morning by Vogue, via Instagram, I came across this. I don’t really know what to call it do be honest. But, it is in fact a bag. A classic red, Moschino handbag. Its interesting, pretty cool, but admittedly it does look more like a novelty cake.

 

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 it’s been a year! A whole Three Hundred and Sixty-Five days. Hip-Hip-Hooray!

A year ago today The F Word made its debut into the world; The World Wide Web, and since then quite a bit has changed. Not only has The F word had a facelift and reimage, but I myself have experienced some changes and moved on. The last year has been an eventful one; so eventful that The F Word captured, documented and hash-tagged every last detail.

Not long after my 21st birthday and having bought my first pair of Louboutins, I started this blog. Since then, The F word has seen chaos during Boxing Day sales, the bargain buys and a trip to Brick Lane all before ending the year with a bang. Leaving 2012 behind and strutting into 2013, The F word also saw the Marc Jacobs obsession blossom, Mr. Selfridge build his luxury empire, insight into Victoria’s Secret, Beyoncé’s world tour, 2 new fabulous watches, Marc Jacobs become the creative director for Diet Coke, along with multiple Marc goodies, plenty of other gorgeous designer wear, a rare dessert party, graduation, several interesting art/fashion exhibitions, trips to the Big Apple, Thailand and Malaysia and lets not forget the ooh so glamorous; New York Fashion Week and LFW.

As the 14th November marks The F word’s first birthday, I look forward to yet another fun filled year; with lots of glitz&glam, fashion, art, travel, cake, more fashion and even more cake!

Here’s to another 365 fabulous days- #Watch this space!
