I know that the most honoured guests at the Bafta's in LA last week were Kate and William but how much did Zoey look like the queen of kitsch in Oscar de la Renta? It is definitely not the first time she has managed to wear cute outfits, like this one she wore to the premiere of '500 Days of Summer'.
How is it so that when it comes to putting a masculine but flirty outfit together, those girls in the Far East just do it better? A couple of weeks ago I spotted the most amazing pair of Dr Marten boots that I may have ever lain my googly eyes on in Urban Outfitters, Kensington. They were a black brogue boot version. I asked where the lady had acquired these comfy gems and of course they were a limited edition pair from Japan. The picture above, taken in Covent Garden market, I think demonstrates well the laid back casual chic of teaming together brogues with a girly edge. The tights are a good contrast to the print scarf which adds a flash of colour to the outfit. Top marks I say.
Another sweet thing in Covent Garden is the CyberCandy shop where all kitsch lovers descend to stock up on their hello kitty Pez or Jelly Belly beans. No self respecting hello kitty fan would eat any other snack. Another kitsch haven in Covent Garden is David and Goliath. I love how you can dress so unashamedly in cutesy outfits with speaking cupcakes as your bed is the only one to see the outfit.
Another fashion trend which please me this week is print clash. You cannot get away from prints in the shop at the moment and I do think it best to team floral print tops with bird print trousers. The more wrong it seems the better it is in my opinion. Naturally I have been wearing my print trousers with Doctor Marten boots as the weather has been so terrible. They seem to be the antidote to rainy and windy conditions with intermittent sun. In Cath Kidson they have introduced a gorgeous new range of bird print bags which are very classy, durable and grown up. Mine is the laptop case.
