This Week I’m Loving… Thom Browne Dachshund bags, Boy George’s tour style and more!

Thom Browne has done it again… totally and utterly bowled me over! This man is GENIUS! Back in January I gushed about his pre fall 2016 collections, which featured his very own little Dachshund, Hector, not only in the flesh, but rendered in leather as fabulous bags and clutches, and also embroidered onto jackets, skirts and tops.

And he’s BACK for Resort 2017! But this time, Hector comes in all different pastel colours! OMG. It’s just too much!

Not only that, but take a look at this all-animal cast of pouches: from crabs to whales. And talking about whales, LOOK AT THAT HEEL!!!

Boy George is on tour at the moment in Australia, and his stage looks are giving me LIFE! I’m already a big fan, of his music and style – I reckon we could probably swap wardrobes and still look like ‘us’ – and his stylist, David Thomas, has created this special naughts and crosses print for George. They’re really embracing it! Long line shirts, long line suits (you know how much I love a long length), trousers, hats and even shoes to match!

OBSESSED!

Another David Thomas original on the right, and the left is a look custom designed by Ashton Michael, an LA-based designer who has dressed everyone from Ariana Grande to Adam Lambert (another of my celeb style crushes!). Shop his current collection here.

News that the Diana Vreeland beauty brand is expanding has just hit the internet! As if the existing nine fragrances are completely amazing already, three more will be added this July.

The OUTRAGEOUS collection will take three of the current fragrances – Simply Divine, Outrageously Vibrant and Daringly Different – which will be remade using parfum absolute which is a higher concentration of oil than standard eau de parfum.

Outrageous Daringly Different, for example, is a gorgeous oud, using iris, which was inspired by Diana’s trips to Morocco in the ’60s.

These will be more expensive than the original nine, mainly because using an absolute is pricier. But I bet they are SO worth the money! I can’t WAIT to smell them!

That’s it for this week!
