Ask me why I love Oscar de la Renta

23 Jun

Well, it’s pretty obvious. With a collection like this, i give my undying love.

Oscar de la Renta appeals to me in every kinda way. Just take a look at this stunning Resort 2012 collection, featuring prints, patchwork, polkadots, quirky hats, chic shift dresses, crisp blazers, everything a girl wants.

The styling is super chic and he offsets the sweetness with edgy shoeboots and interesting cowboyesque hats.

Totally and completely Oscar, totally and completely head over heels in love.

Kelly Rowland is really stylin’ in her debut as X-factor UK judge. It’s feminine style with edgy accents, very accessible yet aspirational fashion. Watching this girl all season!

The Chanel Boy Bag

13 Jun

For all passionate lovers of Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld, this could be a very exciting development or this could evoke a temper tantrum, afterall, we’ve come to love our classic quilted bag and full chain strap. It’s the one we dream about and if we don’t have it already, hope to acquire in the sweet someday. That’s the signature of the Chanel label, Coco Chanel and the timeless Parisian chic style.

But hey we welcome change and this change is actually pretty, the new bag range from Chanel. Wise Karl Lagerfeld is quick to remind the many devoted fans of Coco Chanel that this bag is still all about her. This here is the most quoted part of Lagerfeld’s statement about the new boy bag, “Chanel used men’s underwear to make dresses; she had this boyish attitude, in fact it is the very spirit of Chanel. She got it from Boy Capel, the great love of her life, which, incidentally, explains why the new bag is called the Boy Chanel,” Hmmmm….yeah but we won’t stop loving the good old 2.55 bag ;-)

The new range is available in classic colours of red, grey, and ivory in glazed calfskin clutches, purses, and totes, they will hit Chanel boutiques this Fall with prices ranging from $2,500-$4,300. You might want to keep an eye on Chanel.com to get updates on this chic new development ;-)

Nothing beats the perfect shoe silhouette

9 Jun

I can’t believe i haven’t blogged in so many weeks! So so heartbreaking! But hey, it’s one day at a time i guess, never too late to jump right back in. I plan to express my fashionable side as much as possible from now on. Scouts honour!

So, my eyes dropped to the silhouette of my shoes today and i couldn’t help the fuzzy feeling. I love that beautiful arch at the sole of a shoe, especially when it curves into a slim and generously high heel. We’ll be going for a 5 to 6 inch heel there *wink wink*

It’s even more exquisite when it has an unusual shape, I love love love YSL shoes for that, Miu Miu has some stunning shapes as well. We all kinda agree that Christian Louboutin has nailed heel perfection to an art, so we’ll always pay homage to the maestro.

Wella! I decided to go-a-drooling and picked out some goose bumps worthy heels from these amazing shoe artists. Drool with me please, lol.
