Addiction thirteen: AUGUST ELLE

I’m loving the August issue of both UK & Spanish Elle magazines.

This picture of Erin Wasson taken from the fashion shoot in Spanish Elle is AMAZING! Absolutely everything about this shot is fantastic from the gorgeous tulle dress styled with the wickedly cool ankle boots and denim jacket, to the location in front of the truck station! It’s these combinations of contrast that I love.

I’m also loving British Elle’s cover shoot of Lily Allen by Rankin. She looks very cool, sexy and her eye make-up is to DIE for, I only wish I could do something that incredible to my eyes.

They’re both currently on sale but hurry up and get them quick before they go!
I’m also excited about the September issue of Elle UK, out August 4th, as I hear Emily Blunt is on the cover and I LOVE her!

Addiction twelve: THE SOLD OUT ITEM!

Why do you always want something that is sold out? I have fallen in love with the Opening Ceremony pleated trench coat seen on Blake Lively AKA Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl (episode 3.19 “Dr. Estrangeloved”) and Rose Byrne AKA Ellen Parsons in Damages (throughout series 3).

What I love about this trench coat besides the amazing cut is the charcoal felt collar. It’s a great twist on a classic item. I recently spotted similar (i.e. charcoal felt collar) but by no means the perfect match by DKNY and Celine for their Autumn/Winter 2010 collection.

If anyone spots a closer match or a second-hand one please let me know!
