Never Make A Pretty Woman Your Wife

pics taken from AW13 Elle Collections
I don't tend to catch up on Autumn Winter trends until I pick up a copy of Elle Collections around this time of year. I like all of the trends to be condensed down for me in a manageable way so that I can take a day to digest everything and see which, if any, of the looks I will be buying in to. I haven't fully read the mag yet but have been unable to get past the spots on offer from Miu Miu as they remind me so much of one of my film heroines - Mrs Rachel Flax from Mermaids.

With black polka dots on pale pink and blue backgrounds I can only imagine that Miuccia Prada is a huge fan of the film too. And what's not to love about Mrs Flax? She has a body to die for, hair volume to rival Amy Winehouse, and mad cooking skills (star shaped sandwiches and marshmallow kebabs). 

I wish that I could find a dress like the pink polka dot one in Mermaids but I have searched everywhere and it is nowhere to be found. Instead I may have to settle with some polka dot accessories in a nod to this trend. There are plenty of spotty accessories to choose from at the mo. The Vans Wayfarers are a particular fave along with the Oscar de la Renta courts. 

How cool would that Primark dress look with the ASOS cat eye sunnies? Hmmmm late summer day look me thinks. 

If in doubt I think I'll just go for a little on trend nail art to brighten up my look. 

Who are your screen heroes?
