Full on, head over heels, in love with the utterly incredible jewellery from Lauren Wolf. My boyfriend got me the Silver Stingray Claw Ring for my 21st and I've been obsessing over her work ever since! The necklace shown above is a one of a kind recovered sunken treasure, 15th century spanish coin. Seriously. If that doesn't excite you then I don't know what will! I would happily adorn all of these pieces. If only my bank balance was a little higher! Santa?

A few snippets from my much needed night on the tiles! Went to see The Drums for two of my friends birthdays and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised, didn't expect them to be half as good live as they actually were. Bonus. Lot's of much needed catch up's, boozing and dancing went down. Now it's back to essay writing for the next few weeks. Unlucky.

One can dream.
I've been trying but unfortunately failing to get my paws on the Alex Wang 'Chenille' sweater for some time now and when I seen this litte look-a-likey in H&M the other day I couldn't believe my luck. Cropped, ribbed and panelled – everything I wanted from the ‘Chenille’ at just a fraction of the price. Oh and it's a got some festive sparkle, perfect!

Alexander Wang 'Brenda' camera bag in leopard print, 3.1 Phillip Lim Bralet (absolute must for my tiny boobs), House of Harlow necklace, Zara snake print purse, Gucci Guilty fragrance, Wang & Erin meets Zadig tanks and of course the Pamela Love arrowhead ring (you WILL be mine).
P.s. Sorry for my disgraceful lack of posts recently, I've been snowed under with uni work for the last few weeks and plan on being so for the foreseeable future. On a lighter note I'm taking this weekend off to celebrate my friends birthday, oh and I bought the most amazing shoes that I have to share with you all! I promise to try and find the time...there really aren't enough hours in the day.

While making my christmas list the other night I came across these beautiful crystal quartz pyramid watches by Unearthen. Every watch is one of a kind which I absolutely love, there's something special about wearing a piece of jewellery knowing it is completely unique to you. If santa doesn't bring me one of these lovelies (my list has quite a few options on it) then it's something I'll be listing over until I have one on my wrist. Oh, and that gift wrap...almost as pretty as the gem inside!

The latest and in my opinion greatest Low Luv campaign to date. Since the first collection launched I've been in love, but I have to say that this one is most definitely my favourite so far. Being a mega Wasson fan (I mean, what's not to love?) I'm obviously going to big this collection up, however it has to be said that even if your not as in love with the lady as myself, you can't deny her knack for jewellery design.
My favourite elements from this collection have got to be the combination of gold and silver (I've only recently started mixing up my metals you see) and of course those pyramid inspired antique coins. The christmas sales won't be seeing me this year, I'll be holding out for some Low Luv goodies.
Let's have you 2012!
p.s. A note on the campaign itself - Erin, sand and to-die-for jewels in black and white. Perfection.

Treated myself to these ALEXANDRA studded cut out booties from Topshop the other week. I wish I could say I've never had them off, but in all honesty my feet have been cosied up in biker boots and fluffy socks thanks to this increasingly chilly weather.
I can't believe it's almost November, where has the time went?! Dare I say it but Christmas time will be here before we know it along with a ridiculous amount of course work hand-in's for me to look forward to. Hopefully Santa see's all my hard work and slips some extra presents my way.

If your looking for a way to jazz up your knitwear then look no further than your jewellery box. I got the idea after seeing a little 'IRO' number with pierced detail in Urban Outfitters, however the price tag was a little steep for my student budget so thought I'd do a little DIY job myself. It's no 'IRO' but it'll do for me.

I first came across the work of Scott Campbell when my boyfriend was getting tattoo'd at his studio in Brooklyn in September. This is the kind of art that I adore, the kind that is simply out of the ordinary and leaves you completely in awe.
Campbell creates these mind blowing pieces by using lasers to cut sheets and stacks of U.S one dollar bills. The piece above, a two foot plus cube with a skull inside, titled Pièce de Résistance, was crafted from $11, 000 worth of U.S currency and is now worth $50, 000.

A blogger favourite and a terribly predictable post but there's certainly a reason for it.
Isabel Marant S/S 12 RTW, Paris Fashion Week.
Yet another flawless collection that I'll most definitely be trying to imitate on a student budget when the sun decides to shine again.

CHANEL, what else?! A few of my favourite looks from the S/S 12 RTW collection. 80 outfits were sent down the glossy white, under-the-sea spectacle. I mean, who would expect anything less? To top it all off, if that's even possible, Florence Welch performed her particularly fitting single "What the Water Gave Me". EPIC. Obviously.

Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl, also known as The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger. My model/style/couple crush for the past few months. Oh, and the music they make together is almost as beautiful as they are...listen and love
