Another Year Rolls By…featuring Rachel Zoe

23 Dec

No better way to end the year than by taking a look at one of my best designers of the year: Rachel Zoe. This lady is fast taking Victoria Beckham’s place in my heart. I love the way she stays true to her style, love love love that 70s influence, and the tailoring is heart stopping. Very sleek chic, very up my alley.

Her Pre Fall 2012 collection is stunning bar the almost-up-to-the-navel slits. I’ll always have furrowed brows about the excessive show of skin in fashion but what we do is pick the good out of the scandalous. Just like I said at the beginning of the year, I’ll say again, fashion is to cover up nudity not expose it. Well, we’ll keep blazing the trail in looking super fashionably modest, scouts honour, so help us God ;-)

Have a Very Merry Christmas and an AH-MAZING 2012!

For The Sake of Art: Dior Fall 2011 Couture Collection

15 Dec

Just for the sake of appreciating the workmanship and art that goes into creating these clothes, this is a beautiful collection. The exaggerated statement necklaces paired with them make for a very interesting combination too.

Don’t ask me if they can be worn that way in a real life situation though…that will depend totally on the wearer.

Cruise 2012 Shoe Collection: Christian Louboutin

8 Dec

As a confirmed high heels enthusiast, you would understand why I consider Mr Louboutin a genius when it comes to shoe making. I don’t agree with the man half the time, I mean, I didn’t say he was a shoe deity – much as he loves to think – specific ref. to the  YSL lawsuit. But hey, we agree on stunning foot candy, he just knows how to craft those heels.

The way they arch in perfection, the way he pushes the boundary of how high is high, bordering between classic simplicity and bejewelled beauty. With this collection, he takes mexican beading, metallic brights, jewels, studs and adds them to the mix. I’m particularly taken by the embroidered turquoise satin pumps, stunning.
