Who doesn't like to play dress up? Bojana picked up on this, and gave the chance to a "select few" bloggers (dahhling) to do so and have a valid excuse.
If you've never checked out her blog POWER RANGERS GO!, (which I highly doubt) you really should. She always has fantastic ideas for posts, and writes with such a funny and confident style.
There, that's my dose of karma for the day!
Yeah and me and Clemence Poesy are totally tight and shit...

Diane Kruger has recently shown everyone her "style capabilities" and this outfit is no exception. The tee is folky and humble rather than fussy. Usually I'm not a fan of the jeans-in-boots look, but Diane is possibly the only person who can get away with it because she seems to understand that they need to blend rather than contrast. Top points for the bag, it's the right mix of scruffy and luxe. And Ohh, thats not..is it? Is she wearing a headband?
Thandie Newton and Kate Bosworth both graced the red carpet in this pink preen number, in the space of 24 hours, but Kate always looks her best when she keeps things simple, and body con certainly compliments her. Helena Christensen is the ultimate MILF in my opinion; she has that girl-on-girl stare, which is pretty much similar to the attitude that Chloe Sevigny exudes.

I've heard so many nightmare intern stories that I'm hesitant to say any designer at all! I don't come from a design background, so it would be in a press relations role and with that in mind, I'd love to work for really new designers like Danielle Scutt, Justin Smith (a milliner) or designers that are established but not huge like Jens Laugesen or Jean Pierre Braganza.
What is the most loved item in your wardrobe?
It's a 1920's kimono that isn't actually Japanese but a piece of French chinoiserie. It was a find at Clignancourt market in Paris. It's very delicate and sort of falling apart. I'm trying to figure out a way to wear it as a piece of outerwear without it getting battered too much but I like to wear it around the house with a dodgy t-shirt, frilly shorts and shoes that are waaay too high.
Tell them to tone down the slap.

Balenciaga's fall collection, a firm favourite for many brought the urban tribal look to our attention. Those jodphurs and those scarves. Proenza Schouler seem to have added to this look, and given it a new spin for 2008. They've added African Safari elements without resorting to beige khakis, which is always inevitable and extremely cliched. They have got rid of those usual features and created something fresh and interesting that deserves a new name so that it isn't assosiated with flash in the pan "mini trends", like Nu Rave or Neo Blaah.

Casting one LMD (little mustard dress) from Reiss as the star of the show, I have created a weekends worth of outfits, all very different, for a variety of occassions, using pieces from my wardrobe. The dress is fairly new, I spotted it in the sale, and received it for my birthday (that's my birthday, not DC's!) You Brit bloggers may have spotted it before in the shop, but for those who haven't, its made of silk, making it hang beautifully, and is the most beautiful decadent, mustard yellow colour. In a wardrobe full of other dresses from H and M and Topshop, this is definitely a "grown up dress".
Just seen, a bright peek of the dress around the neckline. Reeboks for stomping around the art block and the suede skirt to wear and inevitably spill paint down, but worn anyway for "sensible" flirtiness.
Yeah, because I go to these all the time... Worn with a circus inspired theme of an old frilly, gold blouse from Spitalfields Market and a pair of colourful 90'S kids glasses as a humourous antidote to wayfarers. (I have no idea where they came from, but they have always been around..)
4. Saturday Night. An autumn evening by the bonfire.
Worn on a crisp autumnal evening snuggled by the bonfire with blankets and friends. For grunge factor, I paired the dress with my oversize plaid shirt, wooly knee socks and faithful beanie. It's like the pretty, rich dress is Marissa and it's been tainted and influenced by Volchok.
Worn simply, under a long graphic tee from all saints. The fabric of the All Saints tee is pleasingly "maleable" after being worn, and can easily look baggy, which compliments the smart look of the dress, perfect for lying about on the sofa on a sunday afternoon.
*(Thanks to Elle, Buttonsandstars and Penelope for the suggestions!)

Last December, I compiled my first
At a glance, the general model "theme" seems to be pale and interesting, eastern european, with a few all americans thrown in for good measure, oh, and the odd ozzie. Lara Stone is the current winner for me, hands down, purely for her chilling, stony stare and incredible cheekbones. Though next week, could be a different matter... Let me know your favourite!
I've spring cleaned the likes of Tanya, Hye and Coco, because although I still love to see them strutting their stuff, I wanted to pay homage to the new generation.

September the first is Discotheque Confusion's first birthday. The last 12 months have flown by so quickly, but at the same time, it's pretty funny looking back at my older posts and comparing them to the posts that I publish now. To mark 365 days (so far) of the blog, I'll be 'hosting' an exciting week of posts because everyone loves an extended birthday celebration, don't they?
The collage above is made from magazine editorials that were around at the time. If any of you are feeling especially geeky, and feel like telling me which magazines they're from (September 2006) then go for it, and you can have an extra party bag (ahem).
I'd like to thank my parents, my manager, my ballet teacher, my singing teacher, my violin teacher, my synchronised swimming teacher, God, and my fans...
And without going all Halle Berry, I want to thank all of you who read this, because reading your feedback and funny comments always makes me smile, and gives me a reason to do this. Especially Coco (best blogger buddy, ha), Cool Like Chloe (I'm absolutely gutted that her blog came to an end this month), Alluretone, FashionOrgasm for all inspiring me and being cooland of course my first readers (dusk&summer, I ♥fashion, fashion? yes please (who I'll always remember as my first "encourager", even if she went M.I.A.).
Also thanks to those readers who don't comment, I know that dulcie reads, but isn't a blogger for example, it would be great to hear from you all more often, I'd love to know who you are!
I'm planning on recreating one of my old posts (whooa, circa 2006, retro..) so let me know if you have/had any favourites and do let me know! I'm also giving you free reign on deciding what will be the finale post (next saturday) so let me know what you want to read. It could be about Models of the Moment, Muses, Celebrity fashion hits/disasters, IT Bags...anything! So scibble away and get creative with your comments.
I know there are lots of other anniversaries (is that the plural?..) coming up, like My Teen Vogue and Coco's Tea Party, so happy birthday y'all!
...but most of all, happy first birthday D I S C O T H E Q U E C O N F U S I O N !
