It's been 15 years since Elle Woods entered the halls of Harvard in Legally Blonde and with the news that Legally Blonde 3 is in the works it's time to take a trip down memory lane and share what life lessons Elle Woods taught us.
1. If you exercise you won't feel compelled to murder.
2. Always be confident. The 'bend and snap' works every time.
3. When Elle felt ready to give up on her dream Professor Stromwell didn't let her. So next time you are about to quit remember this...
4. When you set your mind to anything, you can achieve it. Harvard Law? Piece of cake.
5. Always be yourself, that's your secret power. Orange is definitely not the new pink...just saying.
6. After being sexually harassed by Professor Callahan, Elle proved she's more than just a pretty face by taking his job. "Hey you, you are in my seat."
7. Elle refused to let a guy dictate what she was capable of. Dump that Warner in your life and find yourself a Enid instead.
8. Make a good impression with just a hint of scent. It could get you the job of your dreams.
9. Most importantly, believe in yourself! Elle pushed herself to achieve her goals.
VOGUE APPROVED - TASSEL EARRINGS
The must have accessories to wear this season are earrings and tassel earrings are having a big moment. They are perfect to dress up any outfit and can make a simple outfit into a glamorous one. The popularity of the statement earring this year is huge and we have seen them on fashionistas across our Instagram feed and it looks like it's not slowing down anytime soon.
Styles like tassel earrings are the new standard for fashion girls and style icons Olivia Palermo, Rihanna and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have been spotted wearing these crafty and decadent earrings.
The poetic vibe of tassel earring lies somewhere between retro jewelry, recalling 30s pendants, and contemporary pieces that experiment with unusual materials. Coming in a myriad of hues, shapes, floral motifs and beads that make these earring truly trendy.
Wear them with a denim jacket or, as seen at Sachin & Babi or Versace (the latter for FW 2018), with a little coloured dress, bare shoulders and tassels in line with the straps.
We'll be pulling our hair back to show off our Amalfi Tassel Earrings which come in 3 different colourways.
We'll be wearing these all winter, perhaps to put a little spring in our step on dreary days.
Which colour will you be wearing?
The Neutral Pair - for the girl who likes to leave the accessorising for the weekend which includes brunch dates and trips to the markets.
The Coral Pink Pair - for the girl not afraid of taking risks in the fashion scene. Colour brightens up her style and reflects in her bubbly personality.
The Bold Red - for the girl who is a trendsetter, her style icon is Iris Apfel and reads VOGUE on the train to work.
These are things I love, things I've worn. I get more compliments on accessories than anything else. I think they're kind of like herbs and spices. They give zest and zing to an outfit. ~ Iris Apfel
Winter MUST HAVE - LEOPARD COAT
Everyone needs a little bit of leopard print in their life whether in a form of shoes, accessories, top or a jacket a little hint of leopard print can go a long way in your wardrobe. Showcased in A/W 17/18 Tom Ford, Victoria Beckham and Max Mara featured Leopard print in some of their designs, all of the first row rejoiced when they saw this pattern hit the catwalk!
We also rejoiced too when our latest new arrival The Monroe Leopard Print Jacket flew into our office. This coat is a statement and can be dressed up or down, leopard print is a neutral which you can wear with anything. Channeling my inner sixties side of style looking chic as Anne Bancroft in 1967 film The Graduate I layered this coat with a simple black high neck knit, culottes and red boots.
Make this coat yours! You won't regret it!
Will the world, ahem, hear you roar?
Get on this trend asap....
Before you push this trend to the side, let us do the run down. Furry handbags are one of Autumn/Winters unlikely contender for handbag of the season! Yes, you read right people. Handbag Queens, Victoria Beckham and Kendall Jenner have been championing this teddy bear trend and we could not resist in jumping on-board the ‘we want it too’ train! We have just dropped the Stardust Faux Fur Bag in two colours black and grey.
No longer will faux fur be just on your coats and the trim of your sweaters, this furry and soft bag will be gracefully sitting on your arm and officially deemed worthy as well. Sling one of these fuzzy and soft bags on your arm and prepare for people to stop you on the street, asking where you got it!
If you are feeling unsure on what kind of outfit goes with a furry bag, the sky’s the limit! You can match this bag with anything, from casual jeans and cardigan weather to that cute LBD you have handing in your closet.
FYI we’ve done the rounds at the autumn/winter press days and faux fur bags were everywhere. They’re going to be huge people!
Are you sold yet?
Still unsure? Take a look at some street styles around the world.

TRENDING: RATTAN BAG
If you have been scrolling through your Instagram feed lately you would have spotted the Rattan Bag making an appearance on your favourite fashion bloggers and style icons. This year, the straw bag trend is queen when it comes to accessories. Personally I am obsessed with this trend and adore the natural, coastal vibes about this trend which has me thinking about warm days along the beach. The bag will also translate well into the colder months.
This style of bag is the perfect go to before heading out the door and one of the best things about the straw bag, is that it instantly makes your look feel fresh for whatever events you have planned. Dress it up for a wedding or pair it with your denim, dresses or anything in your wardrobe– you really can’t go wrong!
It’s chic style at its finest, and your arm’s best accessory this season. If you’re going to buy one bag this summer, make sure it’s one of these!
