One Look, So Much Inspiration

3 Apr

Fashion is so much about creativity and expression. It excites me to no end when I see someone wear something beautiful in an unexpected way. Doesn’t happen every day, so I have to celebrate it when it comes along. I happened upon this yesterday…

On a completely separate note, I found this quote on Pinterest and it makes my heart skip a beat. This is a life note like no other…let’s use the whole box of crayons!

Jil Sander’s Spring Colour Burst: Simply Stop and Stare

20 Jan

To say I am besotted with Jil Sander’s Spring collection will be a sorry understatement. Asides from holding the fashion pack in awe with the ‘minimalist meets maximalist meets kaleidoscope of colour meets couture’ show in Milan, the collection combines many elements I love and find sooo attractive.

Plain white tees + full sweeping skirts + gorgeous bright colour, so simply but exquisitely put together. I am craving every single skirt from the collection!

Asides from the fact one piece from the collection has already made it’s red carpet debut with Kate Bosworth,

you just know that this is one collection that’ll be featured over and over in editorials till we make the transition to next season.

Harper’s Bazaar has done beautiful justice to it already with Fashion’s bright spot, the editorial also features an interview with the genius designer Raf Simons.

I wait with bated breath for even more breathtaking editorials (pardon the pun, lol)

Style item: The 50’s inspired full skirt

9 Dec

Must be the dizzying effect of the raging 50’s trend but I’ve had the full skirt on my mind for a while. I’ve been on a subconscious search for the perfect one and then I found a stash. Once again Zara presents a range of options for an item I’ve been pining for. Up goes Zara in my ‘favourite shopping spot’ rating.

Quite clearly, there are so many ways to style a full skirt, you could dial up the glam by pairing with a sequinned or silk blouse, high heels – preferably shoe boots – and the right touch of accessories.

Keep it simple and stylish by pairing with a tee or jumper, tights and brogues. The options are limitless, as suggested by the stylists at Zara online.

This black one is just perfect because it offers maximum versatility and I love the band at the waist.
