Throwback Thursday

It’s Thursday! So a perfect excuse for a fashion throwback, and this week we are heading back to the 90’s. From double denim to dungarees, the decade blessed us with many fashion  faux pas & phenomenons, but nothing quite as fantastic as tartan being on point.

I have always adored a good plaid. Who knows if it’s my distant Scottish roots or the nostalgia of my first school uniform, a little red kilt (I will find a photo for everyones amusement), but to this day I’m still completely in love with the idea of it. There’s no better time of year than to pull off a cute tartan skirt (summer and spring you would only look silly, and winters a wee too nippy to have those pins out). Here’s some must haves I plan on snapping up.

Now where’s that Clueless DVD…


“Wear it Pink”

Jennifer Garner co-hosted The Pink Party in Santa Monica last Saturday (looking as divine as ever in Dior). It is a fantastic event set up to raise money for women’s cancer programs in the States, in nine years they’ve made over $9.5 million. Lots of lovely Hollywood ladies came out to show their support for the cause.

Giuliana Rancic, Brenda Song & Marcia Cross rocked black court shoes and gorgeous outfits on the pink carpet.
