Dress up that LBD

12 Oct

I love net-a-porter, not just for the absolutely gorgeous designer ware, but for great styling tips.

They just did a feature on Rick Owens pieces, with lots of beautiful styling. This one caught my eye, it gives a sophisticated, sleek chic take on your classic lbd. It was called ‘Urban Sophistication,’ which is so apt for this style.

The Rick Owens LBD was teamed with satin thigh high boots -by Stella McCartney- and a draped leather jacket by Rick Owens. The accessories – crystal drop earring by Isabel Marant and leather and silver metallic belt by Halston – completed the sleek, polished, city chic look.

Don’t forget that gorgeous chignon updo and the smokey eyes.

I heart Tees

21 Sep

I love Tees, they sort of grew on me silently and before i knew what was going on i was scouring shops, markets, online, everywhere looking for unique tees. It started out with the need for something casual and comfy on a weekend, worn with jeans and flats. This would typically be the basic plain coloured tee, but then i moved on to the need for something with quirky graphics or some form of add on/embellishment. These days, it’s an obsession with the slouchy tee, with nondescript graphics, subtle alteration to the basic shape, an uneven hem would be great, bows would be lovely. Worn under a fitted jacket, accessorized with a long chain/pendant and the list could go on…

So, tees and i, we’ve come a pretty long way and it’s exciting when i discover something new and different.

Exciting it was when i discovered that my dear virtual friends at style.com are doing something fun with tees.  To celebrate 10 years of style.com, they got 10 designers to design 10 limited edition t-shirts using the symbol X as inspiration. It was a stunning display to say the least. 10 great designers, 10 great tees. I especially loved 5 of them
