Sparkle this Christmas 2012 with Warehouse...

So the sun has made yet another appearance to our seemingly non-existent summer. But is anyone else feeling a tad Autumnal yet? With high street shops brimming in tonal hues that echo the coolness of a late fall afternoon, I'm officially rebelling against the sun! And with the Warehouse Christmas 2012 Press Event held last week, my mind is in Winter overdrive - bring on those chilly months!

But by the time you get to the end of this post, I guarantee you will be in the festive mood too, thanks to the ever glamorous upcoming Warehouse collection.

Song of the Week: Timbaland ft Neyo...

I love this brand new song from RnB stars Timbaland and Neyo! Although the video got me hooked as opposed to the actual song....

Obsessed with: Rita Ora

She's this summer's biggest thing in music, threatening to push Rihanna right out of the spotlight by being Jay-Z's new number one girl! But aside from her quirky music and catchy song lyrics (I know you're all still singing along to R.I.P!) it's her style that has the fashion world in a frenzy. I've already done one post on some of my favourite Rita Ora outfits, but when I came across this website, I knew I had to promote it on my blog! is an amazing site featuring practically every outfit that Ms Ora is photographed in by the infamous paparazzi. But this isn't just a picture site. With a dedicated behind the scenes team, this tumblr page tells you what Rita is wearing, who she is wearing and, more importantly, where you can buy her exact wardrobe!

Rihanna for River Island!

Hot off the fashion press today is news that RnB star and trend setter Rihanna would be designing her very first clothing collection alongside high street retail giants River Island. The exciting news comes after images of Rihanna looking curvaceous and gorgeous in a skimpy bikini whilst holidaying on a yacht in Sardinia where released via Instagram and Twitter.

RiRi tweeted this picture of her cavorting in a skimpy bikini
and flaunting her curves whilst holidaying in Sardinia...

So will her collaboration with River Island see us all sporting tartan mini dresses and 'f**k you' boots a la XFactor? Or will it be full of distressed denim, slogan caps and knuckle dusters?'s going to be an interesting one!

Speaking of the exciting collection she's hoping to launch in early Spring 2013, Rihanna says

"I’ve been wanting to design my own collection for some time. River Island is the perfect partner for me to collaborate with and working with a British, family run business also really appealed to me. I find London really inspiring and River Island loves to have fun with clothes. I’m looking forward to working with them and creating something really special."

Always been a fan - Rihanna wears a
 River Island Rolling Stones tee...

River Island, known for adding an unusual edge to their high street collections (think studs, embellishment, fringing and distressed denim features to name but a few...) are just as excited as we are on the retail collaboration of the decade!

 "Rihanna is a style icon, from street to chic she enjoys her fashion. As soon as we started to work together we knew this was a perfect fit. Rihanna will be designing the collection and we will be sharing our fashion experience with her to develop a range her fans will love." Said Chief Executive Ben Lewis.

I'm predicting oodles of denim, shed loads of grunge and a touch of Rihanna swag that we all love - I wonder if there will be any 'umbrellas' in her collection?

Steal Sevigny's Style with Warehouse...

Now that the high street summer sales all seem to be in full swing, July is a great time to start spotting some of the early new season pieces hitting stores ready for AW12. And with the weather still making it's mind up about whether it wants to rain or be gloriously sunny, we can start investing in some upcoming season pieces right now! So step away from the bright floral maxi dress at half price because, let's face it, when will you be getting the chance to wear it? And try some brand new, weather-safe options on for size instead!

My favourite high street brand Warehouse have had their Autumn collection drops coming in to stores fast and so why not feast your eyes on these wardrobe must-haves?! New trend for Warehouse 'Sofia' sees playful printed tailored pieces matched with jacquard city shorts, giving a whole new meaning to the term 'city ready'! Totally inspired by the effortlessly cool Chloe Sevigny, think simple tailoring paired with boyfriend-fit shirts and over sized blouses. With a major focus in the collection surrounding the staple Mac coat, you will be rain proof for now and winter ready come Autumn all thanks to Warehouse!

So what are you waiting for? See my inspirational picks below to give you that AW12 Sevigny style that we're all dying to have!

Chloe loves a neutral short suit combo!

Chloe Sevigny loves to combine neutral colour tones in her iconic tailored short suits. Here, she adds a touch of animal print for an added edge. Warehouse are renowned for their consistent take on the animal print trend, updating it in new and unique ways season after season. Get her look here:

Textured Blazer

Animal Print Blouse

Textured Shorts

A Mac is a must during this rainy weather!

 Does this picture represent you this week? All over the UK umbrella's have been up and down, up and then down again as the rain messes with our daily lives! So why not make like Ms Sevigny and add a staple Mac to your wardrobe? A timeless piece that never goes out of style thanks to Burberry, but you don't have to pay mega bucks to get the look. Try this one from Warehouse, where fantastic quality material gives a tailored feel, set to smarten up any outfit and keep the rain at bay!

Classic Mac

Denim Shirt

Black Skinny Jeans

Black Belt

Travel in style with city shorts and a blazer...

Wondering how you're going to be travelling around London during the Olympics? As well as taking style tips from Chloe Sevigny, why not take travel tips too?! Proving that bikes aren't just for those sporting the luminous jacket ensemble, Chloe looks uber sophisticated in tailored city shorts and lightweight blouse! I adore a similar look from Warehouse - just add a matching blazer to complete your look on those cooler mornings on route to work!

Tailored Jacket

White Blouse

Tailored Shorts

Monochrome will be everywhere this AW12...

How sexy is this monochromatic styling? Ms Sevigny keeps it simple (black and white actually...!) by using a statement blouse combined with her tailored trousers. You can get an almost identical look with Warehouse - I love the pussy bow blouse!

Pussy Bow Blouse

Tailored Trousers

Clutch Bag
 As the fashion world resumes in following the style diaries of Chloe Sevigny, us normal folk can rejoice in the fact that we can get her look easily (and reasonably!) all thanks to the lovely guys at Warehouse! Shop online at or in a store near you.

Tatty's Song of the Week.

Aside from fashion and retail music is one of my main passions in life! I've decided to start posting my 'song of the week' on my blog, so each week you can see what I'm listening to and loving! I will pre-warn you that my music taste is quiet sporadic, so one week it could be a pop song, then the next week a rock anthem and, thanks to my recent holiday to Ibiza, there may even be a few house tracks on here!

Hope you enjoy this week's track by ex X-Factor contestant Amelia Lily. I loved her on the accent - her punky attitude and her husky voice combined seemingly created a star in the making. Her debut single 'You Bring Me Joy' has been released this week. There isn't a video yet, but I managed to hunt this version down on YouTube.

Yeaahh Boiii...

I can't get enough of all of the seriously cool Boy London products that seem to be creeping up everywhere at the moment! Whether its Rihanna hiding away from the paps in a BOY cap or the stunning Rita Ora clashing her eagle printed leggings with an embellished blazer, the product range seems to be a must-have for any individual with that sensational urban street style.

Head to toe in Boy London, RiRi's ahead of the trend...

Everyone's crushing on Rita Ora at the moment - check out
her Boy London tee!

A vision in white, Jessie J loves the monochrome palette...

Proving you can twist your Boy London tee by adding
smart tailoring...

With a recognisable eagle emblem that has been circling the underground fashion scene since the 1970's punk faze, Boy London went from being featured in a small-time boutique on the infamous Kings Road to an iconic label that represents London, freedom and pure anarchy!

An emphasis is placed on key silhouettes and shapes amongst a monochromatic colour palette, allowing the graphic BOY LONDON lettering to take centre stage. Heavily influenced by punk rock, the brand began to appeal to a broader subject range with celebs such as Madonna and Boy George getting in on the revolutionary label's fashion antics back in the day!
