Gosh Darnit! We love us some INNOVATION people. We love us some crusader's of personal style that are instigator's of fashion not followers! Peeps like this make the trends!

Girl you seriously made our day! This is what this beautiful lady had to say about her SMASHING look

"Here is my look! I wear 7ijab but I'm capitalizing on the turban trend by wearing it as such! It's a fun way to keep my hair covered. I've also chosen to wear a man's dress shirt as a skirt ala Dsquared! I hope this makes the cut! " (IT SO HAS GIRLIE!!)

The hottest 6 inches on any man.

Oh you dirty dirty readers you....
The hottest 6 inches are the from the top of the bottom lip to a few inches below the lapel.
 WE LOVE this ...keep everything in the details and a simple jumper and denim shirt pairing ends up looking fan-daba-dosey. Also this is shirt is not a high street purchase (Marc by Marc Jacobs) but this is a good way to get some mileage out of an expensive shirt. Pairing it under a jumper for winter, and over a white tshirt for spring, and as a shirt for summer. Great little the mustard yellow with the denim.

Winter Short

We love us some winter shorts...we actually got so excited by winter shorts that at one point in October (before our japan trip) we woke up in the middle of the night to write "BUY WINTER SHORTS-IN TERRY OR COURDORY" into our todo list.

Yes we are losers like that...

So we love these shorts spotted on a hottie fashionista...both the bag and shorts are from the awesome store that stocks some great designers! Love keeping it simple, pairing it with thick stockings and in Kuwait ladies this is the ONLY time you will be able to pull of shorts without getting stared at.
But still, do some of our more conservative readers find shorts and stocking offensive...before you all say YES...why are leggings and long tshirts (that cover all the non PG13 bits) ok but not shorts and thick stockings. Or for that matter...why are skinny jeans ok?

Spotted! Some fashionable worker types prowling the streets of Shuwaikh, Kuwait on their lunch hour (erm lunch half hour actually). A word on all the girls...freaking high street heaven! The boy on the other hand is a perfect example of "Undercover Kashkha" . This (STRAIGHT!) gentlemen saunters into the office so
inconspicuously with his D&G and his Prada, and his MULBERRY breifcase...
we want to raid his closet while he is busy at work clickitting and clackatting away on his keyboard. Is that bad? Does this make us bad people?
Um no. Because we tried to trade our japanese bowler hat for his Mulberry breifcase a few times and he refused...

The " is My New Boyfriend" Post

If fashion outlets/retailers can be likened to celebrities then is like our Gerald Butler or Megan Fox (reference dedicated to the three straight boys out there that read our blog).

AND GUESS WHAT?! WE got an email from them...they know who we are...
We want to cry and die of happiness...
We love you

And before you all get too green, it was not to give us free was just a thank you email.
We are so giddy.

Sock and Shoes-Here to stay.

Awhile back we had spotted hottie highstreetq8's rocking the sock and shoes look.  Many people scoffed at these trendsetters but now its totally normal, nay super CUTE to rock this look. Aww we love  it when our highstreet girls get the last word...hehe.
We love it with chunky sandals actually for spring, white socks with a little bit of frill on them, or if you are blessed with super thin thighs- then over the knee socks paired with anything from skirts to shorts.( but only if they are super thin, nothing cute about elastic cutting into fat deposits, stick with ankle socks if your not sure).  Perfect example of something that is soooo cute and yet so sexy. (All hail Japan's style ethos!)

Shoes and Socks: Aldo.
Dress, shoes and socks: Zara

How to Weather Leather*

A fellow highstreet-er and I had a 20 minute long coversation on how to pull of a leather pencil skirt to work. TA-DAA this is how it is done lovies!

It honestly takes a lot of class and an eye for piecing things together to avoid looking like an extra on "Naughty Secretaries Gone Wild" when you wear a leather pencil skirt . This outfit is sophisticated, multilayered and so insanely cool. It's spot on and trendy without looking cliché. We love how people manage to pull of trends like leather, animal print and studs in one outfit and still come out looking unique and special.

Good Job, you little angel puff of high street fashion you.

Leather Pencil Skirt: H&M

*how to weather leather? You wear it again and again and again and again.

Not too impressive you all say?
Leave us alone, it's Sunday.

Bluer then Velvet Were Her Eyes*

One thing we are going to miss from AW11 is the amazing things done with crushed velvet this season. Such a luxe beautiful fabric, and come on, one cant HELP but notice how nice it feels to run your fingers across your velvet blazer. Best paired with lace in our opinion as seen on this lovely fashionista. If you feel it is too late to partake in the velvet bandwagon why not go with a crushed velvet turban or velvet leggings paired with a basic tee and blazer for SS11?

Be careful though, nothing looks worse than cheaply manufactured velvet, and though many highstreet retailers are doing a pretty good job take a look at your item first. If it collects to much lint, if it has any indented streaks, or if it looks like it may fit better on a curtain rod then your hips ditch the piece all together.

Top: H&M
Skirt : H&M
Shoes : Topshop
Purse: Chanel

*ok ok we know this particular pic features burgundy velvet but we couldn’t pass up the chance to quote this beautiful Tony Bennet song. So, ya, THERE. :)

How to pull of slutface shoes.

Comme Ca:
White ankle socks and a cute nude pleated dress with bow-tie detail! This is how you pull off the highest of heels if your personal style is more cutsie and less red light district.

In other news do you all miss us? We sure did. Day jobs getting in the way, and to be honest we really prefer spring/summer to Autumn/Winter street style. After awhile all the blazers, scarves, gloves, coats merge into one homogonous uninspired blur. We are getting back to it since spring is right around the coooorner!

Nude Dress: Zara
Velvet Shoes: River Island
Ankle Socks: H&M
Necklace: Vintage Necklace from Grandmother.
