It appears that star-gazing is the amusement of the moment, with the beeb dedicating several hours of programming to live constellation watching with the oddly dishy Professor Brian Cox this week. And the BBC aren't the only ones inspired by the far-away galaxies this January; the fashion world too has it's eyes to the night's skies. To illustrate my point, feast your eyes on this amazing sculptural hem Christopher Kane party dress, complete with a dazzling galatic print. Kane's collection dropped at Net-a-porter.com this week, and unsuprisingly the above dress has already sold out. Shop the rest of the collection here, it's literally out of this world.

Happy new year fellow bloggers, I hope you all had a wonderful time over the festive period. I experienced my first white, snow-dusted Christmas in my 22 years of life, which was better than any present I could have been gifted.
The dawn of a new year always brings a new outlook on life for me, and this year I have decided it is the moment to seriously re-evaluate how I consume. Food, fashion, drink; we seem to be living in an age of over-consumption which I no longer wish to subscribe whole-heartedly to. Plus the VAT increase has forced me to realise it's time to embrace a new outlook of austerity. So my new years resolution is simply to buy less, and to purchase better quality goods when I do part with my hard-earned pennies.
Of course, that's not going to stop me shopping/ reading about/ fantasising about fashion. Top of the never to be fulfilled wish-list, the luscious blush coloured Mulberry Tillie bag, 795 of anti-austerity heaven.
