Your One & Only Pleasure- All Decked in Lace & Leather!

As A/W fast approaches, our attention is turning to finding the most essential A/W wardrobe piece...the Leather Jacket of course! ;)

Check out our FAVOURITE picks (so far!):

BB Dakota


Cartersville Leather Jacket, $138- Shopbop.
Beautifully distressed leather, asymmetrical cut & extremely soft. Available in Taupe & Black. This jacket is GORGEOUS.


Jeanette Veggie Leather Jacket in Black, $50- Revolve Clothing.
Veggie friendly and still uber stylish. A complete bargain at $50. Currently on Pre-Order. Order now as this is sure to sell out fast!

Soia & Kyo


Sugar Leather Jacket in Espresso, $415- Revolve Clothing.
In such an incredible colour, Espresso is the perfect alternative to black. With added length & a sexy slim fit, this jacket is definitely one of my favourites.

Topshop


Multi Stitch Leather Biker, £140- Topshop.
Undoubtedly the hawtest leather jacket in Topshop right now, the detailing on this jacket is beyond awesome. Completely sold out online, I will definitely be scouring my local Toppers for this bad boy. How Rockstar!?

All Saints

All Saints are the masters of the leather jacket. They have been making the most bad ass leathers since...Well, forever. I have the knack of spotting an AS jacket a mile off. These little beauties last an eternity & only get better with age. Definitely an investment piece! Here are my total favs:


Harris Leather Biker Jacket, £450- All Saints.
Slim fitting, overdyed leather jacket influenced by classic biker detailing with quilting at the front and back yoke. featuring individually sourced vintage patches, dull nickel dome studs and traditional strap and buckle fastenings at the hem.


Lana Leather Jacket, £295- All Saints.
Simple yet effective. Made from pre-washed, garment dyed and crushed goatskin, I absolutely adore it. Yummy!!!


Owain Gilet, £325- All Saints.
A studded biker gilet, a la Gaga! I NEEEEED this more than anything^. The Owain gilet features AllSaints sourced, vintage Indian blanket panel at the back yoke; the panel is hand embroidered so each jacket is unique. SOLD.

Which is your favourite!? It really is SO hard to choose...Can I haz them all peas? ;)

Friend Of Mine? YES PLEASE!

Australian designers are FAST overtaking our obsession with the US posse so imagine my excitement when I saw another hot new collection from down under to hit BunnyHug.com - FRIEND OF MINE!

Friend of Mine is described as 'Confident, sexy and just a little bit tough, blending feminine edge with a relaxed look that a girl can make her own.' I know we say this everytime but that kinda sounds like us!

These are a few of my fave pieces, some of which are available NOW at BunnyHug.com but there are TONS more to appreciate in the collection, I hope BH are stocking up!

Straight away, I ADORED this red dress with the stripe sash - BH PLEASE?!!


I can totally see myself working it with my black and white KG's and my cheetah L.A.M.B. oversize clutch! SIGH!


Silk Sophia Dress, £285 at Bunnyhug.com


White Anikan Drape Dress, £195 from Bunnyhug.com


Silk Chloe Skirt, £175 at Bunnyhug.com


Grey marle Jersey Drape Skirt, £105 at Bunnyhug.com


Cheetah Print Bam Bam Pants, £149 at Bunnyhug.com

Seriously, I need Friend Of Mine to be a friend of my wardrobe. But that ultimately means making it an enemy of my wallet. Oh the pain! Check out these styles too, MOAR CHEETAH?!


My little heart can't take much more! Bunnyhug.com PLEASE get my red dress in and these amazing cheetah print 'Stardust leggings' and 'Carolina Bodysuit'?!

I love it when a collection makes me feel so excitable, and when it's actually reasonably obtainable from this country is even better! Bunnyhug.com certainly is a friend of mine ;)

J - any friend of mine is a friend of yours.

Girl Crush Alert! Jessica Lowndes Wearing Joan Hornig (Charity) Jewellery.

I have the HUGEST girl crush on Jessica Lowndes. I love everything about her. She's beautiful, talented & has the most gorgeous wardrobe.

The 90210 beauty turned up to the the Audi/Chopard Emmy Week Red Carpet Style Kickoff (August 23rd), in a ring and earrings by the philanthropic jewellery designer Joan Horning. EEEEEK!


I adore Joan Hornig Jewellery. Created in 2003, purchasers are able to buy gorgeous pieces of jewellery & direct the profits from each sale to a charity of their choice, in their honor, by following the steps outlined on the official site. Sales to date have generated substantial contributions to over 500 different organizations across the globe.

That's right, all profits from each item are donated to charity!

Jessica looked absolutely stunning. I think it's so important that celebrities support charities and what better way to do it than showing up a red carpet event wearing Joan Hornig. With JH, you don't have to compromise style for a charitable cause.


The collection is exquisite & if you make a purchase, know that you, as a Joan Hornig jewellery wearer, are in the company of some of the most generous and caring people in the world.

The designs are meant to derive pleasure not only from the jewellery, but also from the meaning of giving back.

Please head to the official website to view the entire collection. Also, be sure to follow JH on facebook & twitter too! Such a fantastic designer & so many fantastic causes.

Treat yourself like Jessica and make a difference.

And the Winner of the Remember Me & Rimmel Mascara Giveaway is......

.....VERONIKA!

We love Veronika's total fangirl answer - it's jam packed with Rob titbits and we can tell she has BIG LOVE for him!

First off, huge snaps for singing one of our fave Rob songs, 'Never Think', to him - so cute! And of course, we LOVED the kidnap and torture route Veronika took - I mean seriously, making him watch Zac Efron movies and singing Miley Cyrus songs?! All RP fanz know of the dreaded comparisons with Zac in the early days (can you really imagine Rob punch dancing and show tuning?), and as for Miley's opinion of Rob? Ahem. Psssshhhhhhhhhhhsssssssshhh!!!!!!!!!

So congrats to Veronika! Please email us your shipping address using contact@thestylerawr.com or you can DM us via Twitter, whatever is easiest for you! :)

Thanks to everyone for taking part!

French Fingertips, Red Lips, Bitch Is Dangerous....

Yeah, so I took this opp to get one of my fave Britney lyrics up in here!
Because this season, we're thinking of being your one and only pleasure, all decked in lace and leather! Well, leather anyway. And not always real leather at that! Yes that's right, leather and leather look/pvc trousers are IN for AW10 ladies (and gents, we know Russell Brand loves his S&B Rats!), so here's a rundown of my fave styles right now!

First off, the basic style. Plush do a straight up faux leather legging complete with topstitched seams to make them look authentic, for a fabulous $70 from Shopbop.


Similar to these but with hot zipper ankles, is an unexpected, but gorgeous pair from Quiksilver! The Sheath Leggings in Oiled Black are pretty yummy at £60!


It's no secret that we ADORE Sass & Bide (Tara has the original Black Rats) so they HAVE to feature here, their PVC Black Rats, £130 at My Wardrobe, are super secsi and very flattering - I want!


Next up is the super stylish brand Alice & Olivia , with a really cute pair of faux leather front zipper leggings, $198 from Shopbop! A&O also do real leather leggings in various styles but these are just as cool at a great price, and no cows were harmed in the making of this garment.


Next on my list are my ABSOLUTE FAVES, the Work Custom Jeans Mamba Leggera pvc zipper style for the FW10 collection. I can't find anywhere that sells them yet but WCJ stockists include Black Label Boutique, Revolve and Singer 22 so EYES OPEN! WCJ is you are reading this, I'm always happy to, ya know, make sure everythings legit and working a-okay on a pair if you need a tester ;)


And finally, if you feel like a splurge, you can't go wrong with this pair of Current/Elliott The Legging Leather Pants, a whopping £745 from Net-A-Porter! Classic cool, these will NEVER go out of fashion, and thank god at that price!


So what do you think? Will you be rocking the leather/faux leather/pvc trend this season? I know I will, and I don't want to sound smug (even though I clearly do) but I still have my pair of faux leather leggings from last year that I've started working again even now before the sun has even waved us goodbye! They'll do until I can get my butt into a pair of those Work Custom Jeans Mamba Leggera's - YUM!

Topshop's 'Leopard Jeans' Make Me *RAWR*!

If you follow us on twitter, I'm sure you would've witnessed my numerous tweets about my LOVE for the Topshop Leopard Printed Skinny Jeans.

Yesterday I threw caution into the wind and purchased these little beaut's from my local Toppers!


Leopard Printed Skinny Jeans, £45.00 -Topshop.

Ive been lusting after a pair of Leopard jeans for quite some time. J & I LOVE the Rebecca Minkoff, Sass & Bide & One Teaspoon versions, BUT I couldn't quite justify the dollars.

I almost fell off my chair when I spotted these completely affordable Topshop ones.

Look at me:


I'm wearing them with a black Topshop Burnout Zip Back Vest (these are my new favourite tanks), my Mojo Leather Studded Wrist Wrap/Belt from EC One & my trusty black boots.

My behind.

I'm in love with them. I got a few dodgy looks from some Oompa Loompa girls in the fitting room & even the Sales Assistant raised her eyebrows when she asked "Are you keeping them?".

BUT I'm a girl who knows what she loves & true style knows no boundaries. They are super soft & I love the light print because it's not too in your face! What do you think? ;)

Jade's First UGG's - A Celebration!

SO, I've never been a big enough UGG Australia fan to actually buy a pair, sure they have intrigued me for all these years and I've watched ALL of my girlfriend's indulge in several pairs but they've never really been for me. There's something about the associations with those hideous fakes that cave in on themselves, and the chavtastic teens that wear them, that has just put me off. Until now.

Rubber Sole had this pair of 'Lo Pro Button Jersey in Heather Grey' on sale for just £49.99, I'd never seen them before and I instantly fell in love! I have always had a long standing love affair with grey marl jersey material, I find it so versatile and flattering in any form and when I noticed that these boots folded over to reveal a fun, hot pink stripe - well my brain got to sorting through the potential outfit ideas using the contents of my wardrobe, and I had to have!



I wore them for the first time yesterday and I have to say, they are super comfortable and I adore them! I'm not sure if I'll be buying the traditional suede styles but for now I'm happy with my funky little numbers and I even find myself a noseying at the same style but in denim!

Rubber Sole have a great selection of UGG's here and some great sale prices too, why not use our 10% off discount code stylerawr and get yourself a bargain too!

J - UGGalicious baby.

Leyendecker Fall 2010- The Formation Of Rock!

A few days ago Leyendecker updated some Fall 2010 pics on their Facebook page.

I have to share these photos with you because they are AMAZING.


The collection is called 'The Formation Of Rock'.


A fantastic collection with a wide variety of prints & textures. Their signature Tie-Dye print is still present in this season's collection.

No surprising that the animal print pieces are my favourite! Leopard goodness!
Edgy & individual, Leyendecker is for women who want to stand out in a crowd, no room for 'same-y' fashion followers! It's unique and for the uber cool.

Playing with vibrant colours & distinctive designs, Leyendecker doesn't take itself too seriously but is consistently strong & bold.


You can stare some more at this Fall 2010 collection on their official website,as well as check out previous collections!

They are stocked by all the coolest stores, including Revolve Clothing, Intermix, Singer 22, Saks & Shopbop!

You can follow them on twitter and also on facebook for all Leyendecker news! If you're a blogger-aholic like us, then they also have their own blog so check them out!

Leyendecker= fashionably-extraordinary ;) T XoX

X Factor Fashion, What's Cheryl Tweedy Wearing!?

It's X Factor time again- OH YES!

What do I love more than the hilarious auditions and the possibility of Mr Cowell finding the next international superstar!? THE FASHION.

I spotted this gorgeous necklace on Cheryl earlier tonight and just HAD to know where it was from:


Fiona Paxton, Surat Jewelled Necklace in Silver, £175 - Accessories Online.
Statement screaming bling. I LOVE it. I don't think there's anything by Fiona Paxton that I don't love...Worn with a simple top/blazer, this outfit was ultra eye-catching.

Another outfit that caught my eye was this HAWT leopard dress:


Source: 1

Pink Label London for Charlotte Olympia
, Leopard Dress- £325.
Christian Louboutin, Volnay 140 Python Sandals, £1035- Net-A-Porter.
Cheryl looked fierce in this gorgeous ensemble. I really need her wardrobe. Please? ;)

Leopard print will certainly be ruling the Highstreet Jungle this A/W. It's even hotter than ever!

I really cant wait for more X Factor fashion next week, what will Chezzers wear next!? EEK! Something I NEED I'm sure. HAWT.
