What a wedge!

leave a comment »

I am seriously hyperventilating, BIG TIME!  

I have a love for shoes, maybe a better choice of words would be obsession.  But after seeing these Charlotte Olympia for Peter Som Spring 2011 wedges, it just got a lot worse.  Crazy for, obsessed with, dreaming of are all not enough to explain what I am feeling.  Waiting til spring will be a true killer, especially when I am waiting for these must-have wedges.

The black and nude lace is my favorite but the blush lace is more spring appropriate.  Can you see the frill on the top part of the heel! The wedges are feminine mixed in with a little bit of naughty, every girl’s dream.  

My hunt for these will begin from now and I will get my hands on a pair!!

Favorite Looks from Day 1 of NYFW

leave a comment »

Below are some of my favorite looks from Day 1 of NYFW.  I don’t think an intro is necessary in this post other than, I couldn’t be more excited.

I love this Lyn Devon look because it is both feminine and masculine at the same time.  The cropped trouser is a spring take on the fall trouser trend.

This look makes me picture a modern-day GatsbyI love the cropped cardigan with a maxi skirt.  The volume created by the hat is to die for and it is organic too.

The styling of the outfit below is fabulous.  Who doesn’t love black and white?  The layering of the skirt and the belt add a tough edge to white blouse.

The willowy white boho dress with rockin’ boots and a huge collared jacket make you really think that mixing and matching does work.  I totally picture a model strutting her stuff in Stockholm in this outfit.

And for the O.M.G. moment of the day, Nicholas K styled his collection with a belly dancer belt inspiration! See below what I mean!  It is tied the exact same way and I am crazy for the inspiration coming from my roots.

Springing into Summer

(Forever 21 dress, Zara cropped cardigan, Miu Miu bag, and Christian Louboutin pumps, jewelry from all over)

Spring is almost over and the summer is kicking in, full power.  Taking on prints this summer season is a huge hit.  My Forever 21 dress is a couple of seasons old but the colors and the print look on trend.  The cream cardigan is my favorite Zara purchase of the season so far, actually that and a pair of shoes which I will wear soon.  I love the femininity of the cardigan with its delicate sleeve details.  Then I accessorized my outfit with gold earnings, bangles from all over the place, a beige Miu Miu bag and camel Christian Louboutin heels.  My cardigan is the only item of this whole outfit purchased this season.  So dig through your closets and I am sure you’ll find different items to wear that are stylish and on trend this season.  

Mango’s Spring 2010 Ads

After hating the Fall 2009 Scarlett Johansson campaign for Mango, I have come to love the Spring one.  It reminds me of the Fendi Spring ads; the dreamy, soft lighting, whimsical photography.  I am also usually not a fan of Scarlett herself, but she looks absolutely stunning in the shoot which defines this spring’s feminine trend.  What do you think?

Look of the Week: Hung on Hanneli

leave a comment »

This week I decided to feature Hanneli Mustaparta, a model, MTV VJ and fashion blogger, who hailed the fashion world from Norway.  I came across the tall beautiful Norwegian while reading the Vogue bloggers feature and that is when my obsession with her blog began.  

Since the Coachella Festival was held this past week and many cool vintage outfits take over the blogosphere, I chose to pick my favorite Coachella look. Hanneli’s look for the festival was the definition of spring fab yet somehow working well with the “hippie” look of the festival fans.  Here, Hanneli is wearing Catherine Hammel shorts, Nina Jarebrink Shoes, Selima shades and vintage Venice tourist scarf.  I also found the second picture, on Style.com, where the model is sporting almost the exact same attire, but instead of a cashmere sweater an American Apparel tank top and she switched her Nina Jarebrink bag for a Mulberry.  I love how the outfit is all cream’s yet the textures and shapes add style.  Be inspired.

Ps.  I decided to add this picture as well, another Coachella attendee that I thought was pretty cool.  I just couldn’t resist to keep it to just one!  I love the Catherine Hepburn/Brigitte Bardot look she is going for.  AWESOME VINTAGE ROMPER!

My Favorite Spring/Summer Bags

leave a comment »

While I have to admit that I am much for of a shoe girl than a bag girl, the shoes this spring are way too bulky for my liking.  So I decided to share with the bag ladies my favorite spring/summer bags. 

My absolute favorite bag, created by none other than Derek Lam, is original yet versatile.  It can be carried on your arm, your shoulder, or across the body.  At the same time, because of the cream and chestnut brown base, it can be worn with the latest spring trends of military, neutrals, and blushes. 

The Celine Boxy tote took over fall fashion week carried by leading fashion magazine editors.  With time, it has come to be one of my favorite new bags, simply because it is different.  We haven’t seen this shape and size for a while.  Celine also created an amazing box across the body bag in a fabulous midnight blue, so props to Phoebe Philo. 

The Miu Miu cream deerskin tote is a perfect spring classic, only if you can keep it clean.  If you can’t, and prefer black, then I would suggest the Mulberry Alexa which is very similar in style. 

For evening bags, I suggest the Judith Leiber clam shell clutch and the Alexander McQueen python clutch.  The clam shell clutch is perfect for a destination wedding while the McQueen clutch is more unique for a fashionable night out. 

Finally, the lust over bag, the craze of bloggers across the world, the Proenza Schouler PS1.  You can find it in different shapes and sizes, but my favorite is the large camel crocodile bag.  All I can say to myself though is, dream on.  Maybe one day!
