Rihanna can talk that talk and walk that walk

I've always been a fan of Rihanna, but with her recent album release 'Talk that Talk' along came this amazingly cool photo shoot as part of the digital booklet and it's safe to say the girl can take a pretty damn good photo too. Shot by Ellen Von Unwerth, I can't quite get enough of the retro/urban vibe of the shoot, with Rihanna casually pulling off the denim on denim, hints of grunge and 50's bandanna tied up do like it should be an obvious combination. I particularly love the effortless street setting, vintage film grain of the photos and all the opposing fashion.

So much so I'm seriously considering a desktop wallpaper upgrade... don't judge me..

Winter Favourites

Here are some of my favourite pieces from the high street this week! I seem to have caught the animal bug as un-intentionally alot of the pieces are embracing either the faux Dalmatian, feather or leopard print that has been taking over this season!

In particular, River Island's attachable faux fur print collar is one of my favourite items with it's ability to instantly inject some of this season's fashion and re-invent any basic coat. Perfect for those penny watchers amongst you!   

1. River Island, Dalmatian Faux Fur Collar, £13.
2. Oasis, Embellished Collar Top, £38.
 3. Accessorize, Owl Feather Earrings, £7.
4. Topshop, Klover Gold Trim Suede Slippers, £52.

Fend off the cold with an over sized coat, as bigger still remains to be better with androgynous tailoring and sharp finishes. Why not team with an over sized clutch as a statement accessory to complete the look!

5. New Look, Paperbag Skirt, £24.99.  
6. River Island, Oversized Envelope Clutch, £30.   
7.Topshop, Oversized Boyfriend coat by Izzy Lane, £220.      
 8. Republic, Glass heart and Tassel Necklace, £6.99.
