Christmas Window Displays in London

Happy New Year !

My new years resolution is defiantly to blog more and keep up to date with postings. I have set up a another blog which you can find here/ levinevictoria. Which will be more for showing things to do with uni. I have found that I can't leave this blog so I am going to use this one for everything and anything I find interesting. 

I thought I would do a little post on the trip I had up to London during christmas for my Birthday. There were some beautiful window displays this year and I thought I would share my favourites with you. 

Victoria Secrets 
Been a huge fan for years now I think they put on great catwalk shows. I thought that the outfits for this years 2012 show were amazing. I was lucky enough to go and see them on display. 

Love the wings :) 


Tiffany&Co had miniature window displays. I decided to post this up as I thought they were really cute. I loved how everything was in miniature especically the little turquoise presents. 

Ralph Lauren 

Loved these window displays. I love the white theme running through each of them. Made me feel like I was in a perfect white winter wonderland 

I also did a post about the Harrods christmas window display here. Its on my other blog has I helped on the Jenny Packham Rapunzel dress.

Sugarhill Boutique's New collection and Christian Louboutin show

Before I start I would just like to say sorry that I haven't posted in a while, however for some reason it hasn't been letting me upload pictures? Anyway!

I am a very lucky girl as last tuesday my lovely friend Kirsti invited me to see Sugarhill Boutique's new A/W 12 collection. The new collection is absolutely gorgeous. The collection shows a range of garments from cute little dresses, skirts, coats, tops and even jumpsuits and playsuits. Personally I loved the little animal prints which Sugarhill Boutique have designed. There are many different prints of animals such as fox's, penguins, rabbits and there are even prints of wolves and bats which I think are perfect for an autumn collection especially as Halloween will be coming around soon. I found the whole collection lovely and  I think it will fit really well with autumn/winter season coming up. I can't decide which is my favourite piece as I find it all beautiful and exquiste. I will defiantly be purchasing a few of the items I saw that day! :) 

I even got a lovely gift bag which had a LookBook catalogue of the whole new a/w collection, a gorgeous scarf/sarong and a lovely turquoise bracelet. 

After visiting Sugarhill Boutique my friend Kirsti and I went onto the underground and stopped off at the Design Museum, where the Christian Louboutin exhibition was showing. It was amazing I loved every shoe. I wasn't allowed to take photos so I havent got many photos to show but the exhibition is well worth seeing :). 

Loved these ballet inspired shoes 

If you drop by my blog I would love to here any of your lovely comments you many have ! :)

Chain Headband

Good evening, today the sun was out a bit finally which makes a change from all this bad weather we've been having. I thought tonight I would upload some photos of a new headband which I got a few weeks ago when the weather was really hot ! I admit the photos I have taking are not the best of me but I was in a bit of a hurry to take them. I love my new chain headband I think it looks very oriental which makes me love it even more :) ! I am fan of the floral ones however I don't think they suit me as much. I feel the chain one suits my style a bit more :).  I got the headband for only £2 from Dorothy Perkins. 

 Chain Headband is from Dorothy Perkins 

 I got the crop top from New Look in the sale a few weeks ago. 

I went a bit colourful on the eyes by mixing pink and green with a black gel liner 

Eyeshadow: Purple and Pink from a Rimmel eye palette 
Liner on top: Maybelline Black Gel Liner 
Liner on bottom: Kohl pencil by Barrym green 21 
Mascara: Thick and Fast Black

H&M to collaborate with Maison Martin Margiela?

 Hello my little fashionistas I have some exciting news. When exploring the web today I came across an article about how H&M is collaborating with Maison Martin Margiela this time to create a collection. However from the article it has not defiantly been confirmed! 
Below I have added a few images of garments from past collection from Maison Martin Margiela. From looking at these I am very excited to see what will be created. 

 Hmmmm.... I wonder was will be created for H&M.

A few years back Maison Martin Margiela teamed with Damiani to create a 14 piece jewellery collection. I think that the collection was beautiful. The jewellery was big and junky and would stick out and make a statement when worn. 
I am keeping my fingers crossed that Maison Martin Margiela will be doing a collection with H&M.

DIY Headband Tutorial Inspired by D&G

I had this old black velvet headband lying around so I decided to customise it a few weeks ago.  I was really pleased with how it turned out.  So decided I  would post up a little DIY tutorial on how I did it. I got my inspiration to make the hair band from Dolce and Gabbana's headbands (picture at the end). 
You will need a hairband, superglue/fabric glue, cottonwood bud, scissors and some cart bits I've used an old broken pearl necklace and to add a bit of gold I used a southern comfort necklace which I got from a club one night lol :). 

 I cut the string between the beads to get one individual beads. I then played around what sort of pattern I wanted to along my headband. 
 I then got the glue and for a more accurate and easier application of the glue I used a cotton wool stick to apply the glue onto each of the beads. 
 I kept going until the band was covered in beads from one end to the other. 
 I decided to add a few gems to mine at the end to make it appear more full and to make it a bit more glamorous. I really like how the D&G one has been cover with little gems and charms. I also love the black, gold and pearl combination.

I will hopefully have a post of my headband with an outfit very soon, so stay tuned. I would love to hear your comments and thoughts of what you thought of my DIY tutorial. While the summer is hear have a go !
