Oh dear...

In keeping with the Proenza Schouler's SS10 look of neon ombring, we've seen many a celeb try their hand at this tricky trend.  First Lauren Conrad added a few purple streaks to her infamous Californian mane, we've even seen Katy Perry go from black, to blonde to bright pink (which by the way, I'm absolutely loving!)..... And then I saw this....

Oh dear Kate Bosworth, one of my favourite blondes, has went and done THIS. I can't put my finger on exactly why I hate this so much, maybe is it that her hair is too thin to carry this look off? Or is that it looks like a D.I.Y job.... hmmmmm.

Anyway Kate, please return to your gorgeous blonde locks soon!

Peace and Love

Why don't you Ask Moda?

Hi all,

I've been an immensely lazy blogger recently! I've started working a second job as a hostess so I can save up for the big move to London (next July, but hey! The early bird catches the worm, or so they say!), so I simply just haven't been able to find the time :(.

I've also recently been asked to be involved with an exciting new styling venture called ASK MODA as a blogger/ community leader EXCITING STUFF. It's an interactive styling style where user can post outfits and get instant feedback from the community of fellow style enthusiasts. 

So here's a scenario for example, say your in Topshop, trying on a dress, and your just not sure, take a quick snap and upload it! You'll then get advice from like minded fashion lovers. You can do it anywhere, in your room,in the car, at work. Fashion advice is now only a touch away!

The product is still in the development stages at the moment, but its launching in the next few weeks,and are looking for BETA testers to try the program out.Interested? You can sign up your name and email address at ASK MODA, and have the chance of winning a £50 voucher for H&M, it's really that easy! Follow us on twitter too @askmodaHQ.

Show some support!
Peace and Love

A final farewell to Amy

I'm still in complete shock as a type this, but I'm sure as everyone knows, sadly, Amy Winehouse passed away yesterday at the tender age of 27.

Although the cause of her death is still to be confirmed,it was no secret that Amy battled with some very powerful demons during the past few years. Drink and drugs were,in the end, the demise of this beautiful and talented young woman,who sang about true, honest heartbreak like no one else.

What a waste of such young and amazing talent.

My thought are with all Amy's family and friends.

RIP Amy.

Love FP xx

#26 Barcelona Wish List

Hi Readers,

I'm off to Barcelona in 3 short weeks time with my wonderful friend Paula (Catalonia better watch out!!), and I've been far too busy organising my placement for Fashion week, getting my blog up and running and working to even think about the eagerly anticipated annual HOLIDAY SHOP!

I've been looking for a few different signature pieces, as I'm pretty sure I'm Topshop'd up to the eye balls for the foreseeable future. I've been a huge fan of NASTY GAL, and online vintage store which is based in LA, for a while now, and have had my lustful eye on these pieces.

Heavy Metal Silk Top $88

Shredded Tee $66

Rainbow Daze Dress $128

I also came across this beautiful dress from the brand Reverse on LOOKBOOK.NU courtesy of Nicola Kirkbride.

I've managed to hunt this dress down for a reasonable £29.99! It's as good as mine!

I'm going to start a 'Today I'm Wearing' part of my blog pretty soon! So hopefully I'll be beaming these outfits down to you pretty soon!

Love FP xx

#25 Stacey Marie Laws

I've known Stacey since we were four years old, back in the good old days of primary school. She's graduating from Northumbria University today with an excellent fashion degree.

This year's been something of a dream for Stacey, after a lot of hard work,  her collection returned back to the North East receiving rave reviews after showing at GFW.

Stacey's collection, Feis, takes inspiration from sportswear and more particularly motorcycle clothing. Her designs have a hard Gothic feel which still boasts femininity at the same time. Her look book is stunning, model, Frankie Cunningham, was the perfect choice for this shoot with her porcelain, Gothic looks.

A big well done to Stacey. She honestly deserves every success in the future.

Love FP xx

#24 Anne He

These beautiful photographs are from sixteen year old Anne He, yep, SIXTEEN! Her taste is impeccable, for her images to have such an editorial edge at such a young age. Her work is exceptionally inspirational, check out her blog in the link above.
