Rosie for Autograph

Apart from the odd pair of knickers from Topshop, I buy my underwear exclusively at Marks & Spencer. I find the quality, choice and comfort of their underwear unbeatable. So I was very excited to hear that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has launched a range with M&S. It's so great to see such a well-known British model teaming up with a long-established British shop.

The range is absolutely stunning, with beautiful detailing and in delicious colours. I will definitely be buying the silk teddy and, knowing me, one of every bra and knicker design! You can view all the items available here.

Do you like the range?

A/W '12 Trends - Catwalk to closet - MILITARY

Military is one of the few trends that I'm not really feeling. As a redhead, I clearly love all shades of green, but I still feel that the military trend has been overdone. If you ask me, the key here is to think outside the box. I will on no account be rushing out to buy a khaki jacket with pleather sleeves, nor will I be donning an oversized camo jacket.

The military trend is something to buy in to subtly. Topshop Unique set the tone here. Make the most of the structured jackets available at Zara, as well as the basic tops in muted tones at ASOS. And grab yourself a faux sheepskin collar from ASOS for instant aviator chic!

How will you be working this trend in to your daily style?

Much love, Bemsy x

A lovely inspired item or a knock off that's a little too similar to the PS design?

A/W '12 Trends - Catwalk to closet - BAROQUE


Rococo-inspired prints

A/W '12 Trends - Catwalk to closet - BAROQUE

For me, ASOS and Motel Rocks have the best options for fulfilling your baroque dreams. If you aren't feeling too brave, accessories are a great way to incorporate this trend in to your normal outfits.

Will you be rocking this trend this winter?

A/W '12 Trends - Catwalk to closet - GOTHIC


This is the first in a series of posts where I will aim to share some of my favourite catwalk-inspired items for each A/W trend.

A/W '12 Trends - Gothic

Of course, you don't have to go all out gothic. Often, a hint of a trend works well with the basics in your wardrobe. How about a leather skirt with a crisp white shirt and a cross necklace? Or jeans and a tee with the JC Studded Holy Cross boots?

How will you style the gothic trend this season?
