It's all about Cara D

She scooped the Model of the year award at the BFA's and there is not doubt about the fact that she deserved it! It was Christopher Bailey who utilised her beauty in SS12 Burberry campaign with Eddie Redmayne.  In 2012 Cara Delevigne sister of model Poppy, walked in just about every show during fashion week from Stella McCartney, D&G to Chanel. Not to mention her appearance on the Victoria Secrets Catwalk becoming one of the 'Angels'.  

Cara who describes her style as Tomboy and casual, is known to have a great sense of humour and not take anything too seriously. I love her style, its relaxed, not contrived and can be quite grungy. My Pinterest is full of snaps of Cara on and off duty, follow her on Instagram for regular updates @caradelevigne

As a glasses wearer, i am slightly biased, but has anyone else noticed recently how many people are wearing glasses? Since the thick, large frame came back in fashion, people aren't afraid to wear glasses. I came to realise that my rectangular 'secretary' style glasses where long gone when i felt slightly embarrassed to leave the house wearing them, i was then on the hunt for some new frames; having short-sightedness inherited from both sides of the family, i have been a glasses/contacts wearer for a long time and with laser-eye surgery out of my budget, my optician was delighted to help me choose a frame. 

I went for two frames, both different shapes but bold.

Wherever this trend has come from, wherever this trend is going, i like it.

Natalie Hartley Wears

I first saw this lady when i was interning at PR agency Starworks and she came to the showroom to call some samples out for a shoot. I immediately noticed her and her amazing bangs, its not often i admire someone's style head-to-toe, i usually deliberate in my mind what i would change if i were wearing it (i wish). This lady was rather intriguing- i later saw her at most shows i worked at and realised that she was.... 

Natalie Hartley, who is currently Senior fashion editor at Instyle Magazine and has previously worked at ELLE and The Sunday Times Style Magazine. I spotted her on Vanessa Jackman's Street Style Blog and after a twitter follow i realised that she has her own style blog 'Natalie Hartley Wears'... Much to my excitement i pinned my favourite outfit posts to my 'Style Inspo' board on Pinterest and here i am showing you all my appreciation for her style. 

After her recent trip on Rihanna's 777 Tour, which she has documented on her blog, here are my favourites.

More style snaps from her blog

Heavy Metal

1. Abbr. M Any of a category of electropositive elements that usually have a shiny surface, are generally good conductors of heat and electricity, and can be melted or fused, hammered into thin sheets, or drawn into wires. Typical metals form salts with nonmetals, basic oxides with oxygen, and alloys with one another.

It's time to wear it all over your body....
