When the Rodarte AW14 collection ended with five sci-fi gowns featuring Star Wars, fashion editors were divided, some thought it was silly and a gimmick, others loved how fun and cool it was. I have to be honest I was on the fun and cool side. Sometimes fashion takes itself way too serious and I love that Rodarte do generally step out and do something different. Granted I can’t see the average Joe wearing these pieces, or even a celebrity on a red carpet, but they really are made for an editorial shoot and I love that Paper magazine for their

I adore Charlotte Olympia, not only does she produce exquisite designer heels and clutches, but she does so with such fun and creativity. Previously I have gushed over her whimsical fairy tale collection, I still have my eye on the ‘She Wolf’ heels, I will forever have the ‘Gemini’ flats and clutch on my wishlist, and how cute would any little girl look in the adorable Incy kitty flats, also it doesn’t hurt that my girl crush Diane Kruger is a huge fan of the brand. For autumn/winter 2014, the British footwear brand is inspired by the Far East, filled with
