The Imagine Game: Let's Pretend

There a lots a versions of this game.

1. The first you play usually with a partner... "Imagine I woke up one morning with the nose of a pig, would you still love me?"- It is a game that never gets boring as the 'imagines' get sillier.

2. Next is the one you play when you walk in to Harvey Nicks, Selfridges or Viv Westwood's with nothing but your student loan to your name (or rather, your overdraft). You are clad in Primarni but this doesn't mean you are not looking hot. In fact, you are looking more than hot because you'll be damned if you're gonna walk around that shop looking like you can't afford, being sneered at by the snooty shop assistant. (This does not apply to all shop assistants- I must say the ones in the Liverpool Viv are lovely!) So, you imagine your bank account is filled to the brim. This 'imagine' is short lived and as you pass your card over and your heart starts pounding as you imagine how embarrassing it would be if it was rejected right now...one of those moments when you pray to God and promise that if he helps you out just this once you'll go to Church and pray to him more often and not just when you want something.

3. The last, I played when it was my 21st. I was treated to my lunch by my friend in the Selfridge's food court. As we scoffed our faces and discussed the joys of birthday celebrations and champagne drinking, a man dressed in a dapper suit came over. "Sorry for interrupting," he said, "I couldn't help overhearing that it's your 21st birthday..." before presenting me with a bottle of pink champagne! I couldn't believe it, but not wanting to look like an absolute nerd I took it in my stride, stayed cool, calm and collected and pretended this happened all the time. Yet all I really wanted to do was jump up and down and scream, "Did you see what this man just did? Did you? Have you seen my present? I don't even know him. It's not a cheap bottle either. And it's PINK!"

4. However, tonight I am imagining just one thing... that these babies belong to me!Michael Lewis- Doroteya £450

Margherita Missoni- Can I be you for a day?

When you are part of the Missoni empire I guess nipping out with greasy hair and bobbled jogging bottoms is just not Chanel but surely looking this fabulous is illegal?!

So I, with what seems to be every girl (and secretly every boy) I've ever known, am obsessed with Glee. 1hr of escapism that leaves you wishing that you could be a part of Glee club too. However, as much as I would like to think I am able to belt out any ballad as well as Mariah I know the brutal truth- I'm a horror. I'm now resigned to the fact I'm no Rachel Berry but who cares because with her retro clothes and quirky brooch collection I'm team Emma all the way- I'm even partial to a bit of antibacterial gel. With a cardi collection to make any Granny sick with envy- Emma is flying the flag for fogey fashion and no doubt will have legions of fans digging out a twinset and pearls in hope they can emulate her granny to geek chic-ness. Never have sweater guards been so cool and fastening up every button in sight, so sexy- how Will is able to resist her I will never know.

Frankie is fit!

Totally rocking her Henry Hollands- Frankie has stepped it up in the style stakes...just as I thought I couldn't be anymore jealous of her! I have a pair of the 'Mock stocks' myself but have yet to wear them. Will post some pics when I do...although not so close to this picture of Frankie. Tee :-)

This week I have been mostly stalking...Taylor Momsen

Gossip Girl's Jenny has been transformed through the years and just like the character she plays, Taylor Momsen can be described as a true style chameleon- and to top it off- no matter what she wears she is guaranteed to have a line of girls drooling over her latest outfit. She describes her look as 'Grunge-meets-Chanel and can often be seen sporting pretty floaty frocks dirtied up with a leather jacket. Great news for us, Taylor is now the new face of New Look and lets just hope they take heed of Miss Momsen and let her ecletic messy-chic style influence their new collections. All this aged just 16. Momsen- we salute you!
