Style doesn’t have a ‘sick day’

October 30, 2009 § 5 Comments

Despite the fact that I feel like a lump of turd I still had to venture into the city at in insanely early hour of the morning to hand my Geography assignment in and getting my password changed for my school email. I was seriously considering putting my uniform back on but decided it probably isn’t a good idea to smell like dirty laundry. So, I faced my wardrobe with one mantra “look presentable, you never know who you’ll bump into” (yes, I live in hope I’ll bump into an Melbournian “blog-lebrity”).

Blue layered top: Lovelygirl

Tiered skirt: My own designs

Black pumps: Christian Louboutin

Rose cardigan: MNG

Tortoise shell sunglasses: Thrifted

Bow headband: My own design

I’m kind of cheating here since I wore flats for most of the time (my loubs were in my bag while I walked on the soggy grass on my way to school) and I had to take my headband off while it was raining.

Wish me well.

More headbands!

What better to do on a lazy afternoon than to listen to The Postal Service and make headbands on the front porch?

If I get enough requests, I might make and sell more of these (but don’t get your hopes up too high, I don’t have paypal or even an etsy. Express your interest in the comments of this post, they’ll probably be around $30 + postage (I know, I know, but think about it from my perpective! The minimum for most fabric is usually half a metre and everything is hand sewn).

I was pretty annoyed getting glared at because I was somewhat ‘dressed up’ at the RMI waiting room.

A friend to all is a friend to none

October 18, 2009 § 13 Comments

That’s what I’ve learnt this week. Although you try and try to please everybody, you can’t make someone like you or sometimes you just drift a part. So, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. There’s nothing better than spending a day with your friends, laughing uncontrollably down the street,  eating real Italian food at Pellegrinis, and spending hours at the bead shop to make you forget about the horrid week you’ve had. It’s probably not very interesting giving you a play by play so let the picture  speak a thousand words.

It’s probably been ages since I’ve worn flats on a weekend, and it felt weird, not hearing that ‘click click’ when you walk down the street (or have blisters when you get home).

T-shirt: Giordano
Black blazer: Lovelygirl
Floral skirt: My own design
Tights: Lavante
Bow flats: Joy&Happiness
Clutch bag: My mum’s/vintage(?)
Velvet headband: My own design
Bauble necklack: China

“Boredom is talent wasted” I saw this on a motivational website and immediately motivated me, so I made some ear rings from the trinkets I picked up from the bead shop. I’ve never really been an ‘earring’ person, I mainly stick to studs and pearls but I just couldn’t resist these adorable little cuties.

Also, here’s a little teaser of some of the headbands you’ll see in the coming weeks:

Best of S/S10

October 12, 2009 § 6 Comments

Best of New York:

Jason Wu, so feminine, so chic, and most importantly it was relevant and wearable!

 00080m 00330m

Zac Posen, yes the colours could potentially burn your retinas but the cutting was divine…

00020m 00070m

Marchesa, who doesn’t love Marchesa? It is the creme de la creme of formal wear.

00030m 00080m

Best of Milan:

Moschino, it was classic but not bland. The accessories were adorable, and that pearl embellished boucle jacket made my heart melt like butter on warm toast (sorry, just watched ‘confessions of a shopaholic’ BTW such a crap, stereotypical movie)

 00010m 00190m

Versace, it got me actually excited about summer, need I say more?

 00130m 00380m

Dolce and Gabbana. Three words, wow, wow, wee! Sexy and retro, but ignor the shoes, oh please ignore the disgustig shoes.

 00020m 00120m

Best of Paris:

Lanvin, sculptural, feminine, all out pure Lanvin!

 00010m 00180m

Christian Dior, I know I didn’t review this collection but I did love it, really, I did! Galliano added a dash sportif to his usual sexy concoctions. The delicate slip dresses paired with the trench coats were so divine.

 00020m 00430m

Valentino, again, I didn’t review it but this collection has rekindled my love for valentino. There was just something so stunningly beautiful about the ruffled semi opaque organza and gothic black lace.

Who were your favourites?

Chanel S/S10

October 7, 2009 § 2 Comments

-sigh- You know, I’m not a massive fan of Chanel, never really have been and I’m afraid until Karl decides to do something drastic or retire and a new designer comes a long I’m afraid I never will be head over heels in love with Chanel. There hasn’t been a collection since S/S07 where I have loved everything in the whole show, there are always elements that I absolutely hate but also elements I just can’t help but fall in love with. usually it’s the clothes I hate and the shoes/accessories that I love but this season it’s the opposite! The clothes were stunningly intricate, but outrageously not over the top. There were just enough classic, and elegant pieces to balance the cute, sexy, sneaky (probably isn’t the right word) chiffon dresses and thigh split dresses. The wooden clogs made me sick in the stomach, and the stockings… arhg COPY CAT Nina Ricci Fall 2007 (here)! There was a surprising lack of bags which usually is a bit of a life-line for me…

To be fair, I probably should consider the performance side of things because Karl loves to put on a show (yes, at none other than the Grand Palais). The barn set was very impressive, Lily Allen did a little song, not to mention the huge audience of celebrities and apparently “at the end, Freja Beha Erichsen, Lara Stone, and Lagerfeld’s constant companion, Baptiste Giabiconi, were literally rolling around in the hay together” (source-style.com) that in it self would be worth seeing!

What would you wear to the races?

October 6, 2009 § 8 Comments

Ok, I’m not too fond of horses but… come on guys, as if it’s actually about the horses, it’s just another excuse to dress up! As a loyal Nuff Nang-er and fan of the Melbourne GPO, I’m entering their competition for opportunity to win a 2 hour shopping experience at the GPO with your favourite blogger! I obviously would have loved to be selected as a judge as ‘one of the favourite bloggers’ but hey, if I win I would get $500 to spend, and who doesn’t love $500?!

So far I have no plans to go to the spring racing carnival so this is just some forward thinking:

 outfit for gpo comp

Cape: My own design

Dress: My own design

Clutch: My own design

Headband: My own design

Necklace (sort of hidden): Funqi

Shoes: Christian louboutin 

Wish me luck, I’d love to spend 2 hours shopping at GPO with the lovely Fashion Hayley!
