I've just been watching the Emmys and absolutely loved these 5 dresses. I certainly don't have a theme going on between them and to be honest didn't really see too many trends occurring with gowns as has been in the past years. Looks like everyone is embracing individuality!

Yesterday my laptop was having melt down so I took it along to the Apple store where the technician said he would have to re-imagine my hard drive which meant I would lose everything that was not backed up. Thank goodness I had recently backed up all of my photos, but all of my music, emails and email folders and my internet bookmarks are lost forever. It seems ridiculous but so much time and effort went in to collecting a library of bookmarks for a range of different things and I think I'm mourning the loss of them. I can't even remember what 99% of them were but they had some relevance otherwise I wouldn't have saved them. At the same time as I'm feeling a little lost and depressed about losing all my files I have to wonder how reliant I have become on the internet and technology. The internet consumes so much of my time throughout the day and between my mobile and laptop I must spend hours a day looking at a screen. It's a scary thought really.

Recently a few people on my facebook account have been posting about Gangnam Style and to be honest I had no idea what it was, until today. This is not the original Gangnam Style but that doesn't matter to me, sailors in suits acting like total idiots is hilarious! There are moments when I may have blushed but in all seeing a bunch of guys in navy uniforms take the mickey out of each other is hilarious!

I'm always astounded at the variety of projects that designers have on their plate in addition to running their own fashion houses. For a second I tried to imagine what juggling so many tasks would be like and I just simply can't comprehend how on earth they do it! A very talented and organised team I would say!
The photo above prompted my minute or two off in to day dream land. Valentino is creating the costumes for the NYC Ballet's fall gala and they are as impressive as everything else he does! Pop over to The Cut and check out the other images behind the story. How I wish I was a fly on the wall in that studio!

At times I am totally a francophile and at others I couldn't dream of being back in London anymore, but Camille from Camille Over The Rainbow has the best of both worlds. One of her parents is French and the other is English. Listen out for her accent, it amazes me how she speaks with a beautiful English accent one minute and then French the next. Amazing!
