On friday my mum had to do overtime at work, my dad was at a company meeting and I was abandoned in the middle of Melbourne city at about 8:00pm, a lot of the small (ish) boutiques that I frequent were closed and after my unsuccessful trip to the big department stores I was hugely disappointed with commercial Australian fashion (that I could afford) and was not about to visit the memory again (plus I was in school uniform), so I went my merry way to Borders! I was again disappointed by Australia Vogue and Harper’s, so I started flicking through Vogue Paris and Vogue Nippon; none of which I could understand so I put them back and bought an overpriced latte, on my way back to the ‘international magazines’ section of Borders I spotted ‘it’: Vogue Collections Printemps-Ete 2009!
It has officially replaced my last copy of Vogue Collections magazine as my most prized possession made out of paper. I really don’t care for the people who say “$44.95? On a magazine? Did it come with anything else? No? What’s wrong with you?” but I am liking the sneaky peeks from fellow fashion obsessed train commuters.

was thoroughly disappointed with this whole collection. The DVF I knew and LOVED was colourful, ‘garden party-ish’ and above all very polished. But this? What’s with the dark gloomy colours? Where are the wrap dresses? Has DVF really sunk to the ‘hobo chic’/'getting dressed blindfolded look? WHY THE LEGGINGS?? Has Diane and that little man gone over to ‘the dark side’? Oh and, pom poms? Pom Poms? POM POMS? POM POMS IN YOUR HAIR?
I want the old DVF backkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m in love with the Autumn palette Donna Karan has adopted for this collection; oranges, greys, beiges and black suit her designs so perfectly. This collection is so lady like and just superb for the office (yeah, I know I don’t work but I just felt as if I had to say it whether it applied to me or not)!
PS. How awesome does Vlada (Roslyakova) look with red hair? I’m now urging my friend Phoebe to dye her “strawberry blonde hair” red.

When my friends thought Alexander Wang was all the rage, I thought his designs were, well to be honest; shit. But now I can understand why, his designs represent ‘the cool crowd’ and as the time has past, the ‘Alexander Wang girl’ grows into a woman, her style matures and she is pretty damn sexy!
Alexander Wang has sucessfully documented the maturing of a girl to a woman through out his collections.
This season was fantastic, I loved the ‘cut-out’ dresses and the really well fitted blazer. But I’m not quiet sure about the ‘over-the-knee-lycra-80′s aroebics club-shorts’…

Alternate title could be “Lacoste goes chic”. Lacoste is known for its sporty and colourfulness but this season it has had a complete turnaround, with its pastel palette, jumpsuits, structural pieces and heavy knits, you can’t help but feel some “Stella MacCartney-ness”. For me, the most outstanding detail is the shoes, I’m not sure if they’re thigh high boots or a combination of matching shoes and socks but they are divine!!! If only I had the legs to pull them off…
PS. I no longer have time to make fun collages anymore.
