She's sent me some real good treats there. Including Eve Lom, Neals's Yard, Chantecaille, Nude, Caudalie. And did anyone notice the NARS lipgloss in there?! I was literally gobsmacked! It's in shade "Bad Behaviour", an uber glossy deep red.

So a BIG THANK YOU to Amina for those treats. I can tell I'll throughly enjoy using them. :)

And now onto Amina's post.

"A/W Trends 2010

With this years autumn/winter fashion already in play its pretty hard not to be on trend. Here's the key focuses in a nutshell.

Its all about minimized vs maximized - a real mix of textures this season.


On one end of the spectrum key trends draw light on textures such as velvet, knitwear, tartan, animal prints and even fur.

Long patterned socks with shoes - high heeled hikers to be exact. Speaking of shoes - Chanel paired over sized knit jumpers with huge furry boots on the catwalk - Yetis for thought? and the thigh high boots are in this season too.

Even though it all screams loud, the other end of the spectrum keeps the focus more towards the tailored look. Think structured shoulders, girls in tux, the city slick look. High waisted trousers are in, they are very tailored so forget the flairs.

Its not hard to see why military style has worked its way into this season too.
Burberry is big as the trend setter - camel is the new black and as you may have already noticed, aviators are big on scene now. Ditch the short skirt because its all about long skirts below the knee length. Its no longer a fashion faux pas to show off the skirt from under your coat - Marc Jacobs himself made a show of it. Cross between the two realms by throwing on a chunky cardie, popping on a pair a of brogues and grab yourself a satchel bag to go geek chic this fall.

The cape has made a comeback, and Parker's are big - think sports gear but glammed up.

Don't be afraid of coats with short sleeves, just grab yourself a pair of super long gloves to keep warm and look trendy. There is an emphasis on curves for a change this season as some of the major designers even had healthier sized women to showcase the tulip shaped dresses, skirts and coats.

Oh and don't put away those Maxi's just yet, pair them with a pair of hikers and dig out that Parker and your on point this autumn to make that transition into winter. Ditch the big belts for skinny ones, tie it in a knot on the ends, this will update any look in an instant. Finish off your outfit with a fur trimmed bag or an over the shoulder bag. Finally, Give your feet the break they deserve, switch up your stilts for some sexy kitten heels.

And a tribute to Alexander McQueen who's work continues to be showcased - designs shown on the catwalk displays ingenious tailoring and the most intricate designs - absolutely mind blowing pieces - R.I.P McQueen.

What do you think of the current trends? What stylistic pieces will be making there way into your wardrobes...or not even? Oh and hop on over to my blog for current trends on makeup and hairstyles.
