Ma’am, your purse is open

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


It’s kind of stupid but I secretly like the wonkiness of these half-open-half-closed handbags. Fendi came first with its Peekaboo (now in umpteen sizes, finishes and colours), followed by Celine with this zippy number (above). It’s part of the whole ‘I’m so busy I just don’t care’ thing that’s going on and is popular with the type of girl that throws her coat over her shoulders because she doesn’t have a spare second to put her arms in the sleeves.

Club Monaco SS13 campaign by Venetia Scott

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Another gorgeous SS13 ad campaign, this time from Club Monaco, shot by Venetia Scott. Nothing ground breaking here, just a set of Scott’s trademark ‘about a girl’ studies set in New York locations. Quietly beautiful with a very slight whiff of Marc by Marc Jacobs about it (maybe in the casting?). I love how Venetia frames the model low down in the photo with lots of space above… Continue reading

How good are Kirsten Owen and co in Prada’s SS13 campaign?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

When it comes to ad campaigns I’m a bit of a realist. I prefer the classic portrait shot to the bells and whistles fantasy arrangements. So I’m loving Steven Meisel’s Prada ss13 campaign – gold standard models (go Kirsten Owen!), wearable styling (even the fright-shoes look good) and a nice plain background. All my boxes ticked… Continue reading

Eye candy: Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


British Beauty Blogger is reporting on the Spring colours for Clinique’s Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes. The colours and formulations certainly look appealing (not enough people do cream shadows) but I’m most entranced by the campaign photos. How pretty! If they’re actually packaged like this, I think they’ll sell a ton more…

Filippa K ss13 campaign images and a jolly nice jacket

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Filippa K is one of those labels that I see at press days but not really in shops. And as it’s pretty low key I don’t actively seek it out. But I love what I’ve seen for ss13, especially this softer version of an MA1 jacket with rose gold detailing, shown on Julia Stegner (one of my favourite models, look at that swanlike neck!).

Gap’s iconic portraits – when classic is best

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I spotted this great portrait of Rifat Ozbek by Steven Meisel (above) in a book in the Gap store. The book is Individuals: Portraits from the Gap Collection and is currently going for a song on Amazon. The book is full of portraits by the likes of Herb Ritts, Annie Leibovitz, David Sims and Meisel and goes to show that Gap has been doing for years what lots of brands are only just doing now. That is, photographing interesting people in a way that represents their own style. Continue reading

It’s a Bruce Weber Christmas at Selfridges (here’s the film, now buy the tee)

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

The best thing about this Bruce Weber for Selfridges Christmas video isn’t the eclectic cast of animals, kids and fabulistas, or the signature jazzy soundtrack, or Weber’s magical feel-good fantasy world that makes you want to climb into the screen and stay there. No, for me it’s the fact that you (meaning I) can buy one of the Bruce Weber tees for a mere £20 at Selfridges Wonder Room with all proceeds going to Kids Company.

Yes, Christmas just came early…

Sarah Murray and Marie Sophie Wilson model for Maison Martin Margiela X H&M campaign

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Just seen these ad images for the Maison Martin Margiela X H&M collection on KarlIsMyUnkle. Love them, especially the choice of models – Margiela has always been consistent is using an interesting, diverse mix of models. I’m sure this is London’s favourite casting agent Sarah Murray third down and Margiela favourite, Marie Sophie Wilson fourth down…

I’ve been Burberry-ed

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

It’s not often I post photos of me on this site because it’s not that kind of blog but I’m making an exception on this occasion because I know people like to see exactly who is spouting all this information and opinion every once in a while. Oh who am I kidding, I’ve been Burberry-ed! Continue reading
