*edit* Competition is now closed.
Give-away item is the Chanel Chance Eau de Toilette Twist and Spray Perfume. New, still in packaging.
This was a gift, and as I already have the original and the newer version of the Chance perfume, I have no need for this. The bottle is slim and is perfect for those of you who likes to have a little perfume touch-up when you're out or on the go. I'm a person who doesn't like to carry too much when I'm out so I have no use for this.
The give-away competition ends on 00.00 GMT 11th April 2012.

I wouldn't claim this as a new trend as the 90s revival trend and grunge style has been back with us for some time now, but it's definitely the look I try to emulate this Spring. It's extremely casual and versatile. I own a couple of key denim pieces ranging from denim shirts, gillets (DIYed from a denim jacket) and shorts. I'm now in search for another vintage denim jacket, preferably from the 90s.. and, the bigger, baggier, the better.
So I will be off to a few vintage stores this weekend, so fingers crossed.
How do you guys wear your denim pieces?

I'd like to share with you guys iconic London cult label, BOY LONDON. During the 80s, it provided punks and new romantics exactly what they wanted. Boy London were worn by Boy George and Pet Shop Boys. More recently, it has been seen on Chloe Sevigny, Rihanna and Jessie J.
I can't wait to order mine soon, I'm pretty decided to pick the T with the eagle logo, preferably in black, with sleeves. It's a very simple T, which I think is great to do lot of mix & matching. I can already picture denim, gold chains, platforms with this iconic little T. ahhh.. I can't wait. :)

During my quick trip down at Forever21 I picked up a white faux leather sleeveless jacket. It was all crinkled up in a heavily worn vintage way; I simply couldn't resist. Also these chunky gold chain caught my eye, I've been trying to get my hands on some gold, 90s-esque tacky looking chain for a while now. I've been telling myself to pick some up the next time I'm at the local chain and accessories suppliers, but I just haven't got round to that. So finally I've found them after keeping my eyes peeled at Topshop, H&M and other similar high-street stores.
I don't think my personal style leans towards the Rihanna side, nor do I usually google her for fashion inspiration. But I must say she has pulled off several looks with the gold chain pretty well. From 90s cool-kid, to sporty, to a more vintage approach, and teaming it with leopard print.
Personally the latter is my least favourite, I actually prefer young Willow Smith's approach more. Which is your favourite look?

Gareth Pugh AW12
The two individual designer and design house has produced a very monochrome collection for AW12. I love the fur and tassels from London designer and one of my favourites. The collection started off with structural pieces which then grew more towards his signature style of body-con looped tassels pieces. I liked the first 20 or so looks, but the latter was rather simple and safe for what I usually expect from Pugh. And for that reason, I only selected my favourite looks here (you can see the rest on www.style.com).
I loved the first few pieces in the MUGLER show. Pristine white mixed with fur and tassels accompanied by a head-mask hat; which reminded me of Alexander McQueen's SS'05 "human chess" collection. The collection then transcended to the more MUGLER style. The shapes and silhouette again reminds me of MUGLER's debut collection under Nicolas Formichetti's direction.
