Louis Vuitton at Paris Fashion Week

So previously I have had no admiration, lust or desire for Louis Vuitton - I've never understood the hype especially surrounding those monogrammed bags! However, I've just viewed the S/S 11/12 Paris Fashion Week show and my goodness (as I tweeted to Marc Jacobs) it was simply spendid! I am definitely a convert after that show - the colours, the lacy/laser cut flower patterns and the feminine structure of the clothes was all wonderful. Even the bags I deem wearable ;)

Oh! and to top it all off Kate Moss finished the show wearing white just like a blushing bride..

Here are some pictures of the collection:

Leopard Print

This French website that I discovered through a listing on lookbook, sells some to-die-for shoes! 

Leopard Print is so classic and can be elegant in a Mrs Robinson fashion
(as opposed to Nicki Minaj doing leopard print). 

Grey Crew-neck Sweater:
The sweater comes in 4 different colours.

Black Cropped-Trousers:

The ankle grazing length is perfect for showing off boyish brogues.

Leopard Print Loafers:

Also on the Net-A-Porter site they had this link to animal print related items
- clearly a winter accessory staple.

Incredulous Invention

Joanna Montgomery, 23, graduated from the University of Dundee last year with a BA in Digital Interaction Design  and has recently launched a creative gizmo designed to connect long distance lovers; Pillow Talk.

The way it works is that each person has a ring sensor they wear to bed at night, and a flat fabric panel which slots inside their pillowcase. The ring wirelessly communicates with the other person's pillow; when one person goes to bed, their lover's pillow begins to glow softly to indicate their presence. Placing your head on the pillow allows you to hear the real-time heartbeat of your loved one. The result is an intimate interaction between two lovers, regardless of the distance between them.

So gonna try this out :}
