Expensive Bag I Love, want and NEED!


This bag is currently my obsession. I am actually considering taking out a credit card to buy this bag! I can't go to sleep without thinking about it and i wake up thinking about it. It's from the Spring Collection and it's a Miu Miu Belted Leather Tote. I want the brown one sooooo bad. I love how it is simple enough to wear season after season, but the gold belt detailing on the sides give it a very edgy feel. It comes in White and Nut (brown), so for those of you who love it and can AFFORD it you can purchase it at Neiman Marcus for US $1080 but it is one beautiful bag to invest in.

Debate: Fashion Model's too Skinny?


I stayed away from putting my argument forward about this debate because i really don't know what happens behind the scenes in the modeling world. But after seeing pictures of models posted on a particular fashion and model forum, i was shocked to see how many girls were obsessed with super-skinny models.


The site I am talking about is a very popular one in which official top model images can be found. However, the girls and guys that frequent this particular site have started a new thread that worships super skinny models. They come together to post picture not of their favourite fashion models, but to compete to find pictures of excruciatingly thin models, some almost on the verge of saying "hi" to a brand new coffin.


A member would post a picture and fanatic members comment on how much they adore the model's arms, bones, elbows and yes their bony knee's as well. Many of the model's posted on this site are unknown models, however some familiar faces did pop up which does reflect negatively on the modelling and fashion industry and the power they have. Many regard these model's as "Thinspiration" and now the obsession with thinness has gone too far.

Mischa Barton Louis Vuitton Shorts!


When i first saw this photo, i wasn't surprised to see Mischa Barton of all people mixing and matching prints and styles, because after all it is apart of her eclectic style. But it annoys me when celebrities purchase such expensive clothing and still manage to look shocking. Mischa's red lipstick, stripe top, embroidered tank and decorative Gucci bag all make for one big mess! And a note on the shorts, I think Louis Vuitton is seriously lacking creativity lately, first it was the extremely overpriced patchwork bag with like 100 bags in one and then these shorts!

My my What a Furry bag!


OK, i saw this bag in a store recently and it's one of those bags that around 99% of people would hate! However, I'm not quiet sure. Although i doubt i will be raising to the shops to add this bag to my collection, i find it some what interesting. It different, its bold and animal friendly. This bag hold quiet alot and has alot of potential to look great provided you feel your look can pull it off. Anyways, if this is your thing, you can find cheap faux fur bags on Ebay or at FurOutlet.com

Nicole Richie -Chanel Python Tote


I just wanted to shed some light on this gorgeous bag. It's called the 'Chanel Python Tote' and is currently my favourite designer handbag. The colour, the texture and the size all work together beautifully...if i had that much money, this would be the bag i would have my hands on!

The Men of Sweden


The Sartorialist gave us plenty to smile about when he captured the essence of the new age fashion forward man in Stockholm Sweden. Swedish boys know what they're doing, with their impeccably sophisticated style which would give us ladies a run for our money. These men are so in tune with fashion and their personal style while still maintaining masculinity.


TRENDS FOR THE MEN


1) Skinny Jeans or Pants- Lean mean Skinny jeans are here to stay! With many men embracing this trend as it's a fresh take on the years and years of overly baggy jeans. Try ones that are looser around the top half while tighter around the carves and ankles.


2) Scarfs- Although it is heading into summer in Europe, scarfs always add a touch of class to any outfit for next winter


3) Military Jackets- Military jackets are structured, beautifully cut, and gold brass buttons will surely make others salute.


4) Wayfarer style sunglasses- These 80's style sunglasses are the hottest property in shades for both men and women in all colors. Don't like the trend? Stick to the cool 70's aviators or get youself a pair of bargain priced wayfarers on Ebay or the classic Ray Bans on Otticanet. In no time chain store like H&M and Target will surely make their own versions if you can wait that long!


5) Neutral colored pants- Brown, cream, beige, grey and white pants are a fresh look for the chillier nights of summer.


6) Great hair- Short, long or in between- Whichever way you like it, make sure you keep it in tip top condition and style it in your very own way.


7) Standout Sneakers- An awesome pair of sneakers can do no wrong. Get yourself a pair with cool graphics, bold colors or try them in the funky metallic trend! Vintage Nike have a great range. For the rest go for a classic pair in white or find a great pair of sandals for those hotter days.

Perfect match- Red Bags and White Shirts


The New York Times' Bill Cunningham notified us of two hot trends for summer as seen on the most fashionable everyday New Yorkers. The trends? Red bags and White Shirts. Summer has yet to roll around, but all the summer babies are in need of a fresh outlook and what better way then to get fresh then in a crisp white shirt. These separate trends however, make for a stylish chic ensemble with fiery red clashing with gleaming whites!

Crazy Over the Bindi


When the print Campaign came out for the Louis Vuitton Bindi sunglasses, i could not help but be engrossed in its unusually beautiful design. From the retro frame, to the unique quartz gem in the middle, the Indian inspired Louis Vuitton Bindi sunglasses were sure to capture (and cover) the eyes of many a Hollywood starlet. Few month's on we've got Beyonce, Gwen Stefani and Lindsay Lohan wearing these hot shades in various colors. Beyonce has made these sunglasses her statement "it" glasses while on her world tour. Gwen owns both the black and white ones, as seen in her film clip. As for Lindsay Lohan she wears these sunglasses from America to the Bahamas!

Trend: Utility Style Dressing


This is one versatile trend. Lately we've been seeing the return of the overalls with Rachel Zoe stapling the outfits onto her former client Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan, but Utility style dressing has taken on a whole new stance. With Doc Marten inspired boots stomping around as seen at the Chloe Shows, Overalls have also been present in all forms from skirts, to shorts to pants. Suspenders and Cargo Pants in Khaki colours also add to this Tradesman's trend. Glam it up with cute print cardigans, platform shoes and contrasting shapes.

Purchase: T-Shirt


You know how it goes...you go food shopping and you come back home with clothes. Its inevitable really, so today I ended up buying a groovy green T-Shirt for $15. I didn't need a T-Shirt but this one just screamed at me so i had to have it. It says "You Cant stop The Music" and it kinda reminded me of those House of Holland T-shirts which you can see on style.com and it will be a great everyday casual T-shirt.

Model Iekeliene Stange is Quirky to the max!


Iekeliene Stange is the current hot property of the fashion industry...and how could you blame the fashion industry for not loving this girl? Her elegant structure, beautiful elf-like features and kookie style saw Marc Jacobs immediately fall in love with her, and the rest followed. However, what attracted me most is her off-the-runway quirky sense of style. She will wear anything and everything that appeals to her...gold leggings, mini dresses, patchwork jackets, $2 market finds, ballerina dresses, military jackets and large 60's reading glasses (not used for reading however). It's inspiring to see how someone constantly in the fashion world can branch out and find her unique style.

Lindsay Lohan Sunglass collection


Sunglass Whore, Fashion Victim...call her wat you want, but i have officially regarded Lindsay Lohan as the owner of the Best Sunglasses Collection in Hollywood! Unlike Paris Hilton who also owns an abundant amount of shades, Lindsay Lohan knows how to wear them, and wear them good. Her range features labels such as Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Oscar De La Renta, Dior, Chanel, Gucci, Linda Farrow, Armani Exchange and Ray-Ban just to name a few....while i get my breathe back, sit back and envy...

outfit-Errands


Today i don't have uni so i decided to go run some errands. I have to go to the bank, return an ugly sweater i bought which cost a lot more than it is worth, meet my friends for lunch, head home and do a uni assignment, then go to the P!NK concert tonight because my friend bought me a ticket...isn't she nice? So all in all it's a jam-packed day. Anyways this is my outfit...comfy and warm :) oh and i did wear those wayfarer's i bought on ebay

On a more positive note!


This is one girl i love! Ashley Olsen has always been a favourite celeb of mine and never seems to do any wrong...i love how she:


  • Wears a piece of clothing more than once Ala the leather jacket

  • In my eyes, she rocks the Ray-Ban wayfarer's the best compared to the other female celebs.

  • Wears the same Jil Sander flats to do errands

  • And Totes around her signature classic Fendi bag.

Kirsten Dunst- Ray Ban & Cigarettes


Kirsten Dunst was looking like a true rockstar as she watched a tennis match. Juggling a coffee and cigarette in one hand, the actress looked super trendy in her large Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses. The sunglasses which have been seen on Kirsten Dunst and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are becoming one of the best selling sunglasses of this decade.

Look what my boyfriend got me!




Well the other day i received a package from FedEx addressed to me, and to my surprise i had opened up a brand-new pair of Versace sunglasses. My dearest boyfriend had bought me a pair of Versace after browsing Neiman Marcus online. They are quiet the sexy pair of sunglasses, anyways here's a photo of them i found online!

Fringe Benefits


When the Spring and Fall runways of Fendi, Prada, Thakoon had their models whisking around in all things fringe, it was inevitable that Hollywood's fashion followers would also pick up on the trend. Mary-Kate and J-Lo have been spotted with the tassel-like bags all around town. These bags personally remind me of a very frightening cowboy boots and flimsy 'Sienna Miller' dressing trend we had a while back that I'm not looking forward to anytime soon.

Bright colors put a smile on Victoria's Face


For those of who think that Victoria doesn't smile...well here is the proof that she does...looking super cute shopping to film her new "reality" TV show in a purple mini dress and at the Chanel Cruise show. Lets hope we see more of her smiling face around!

Current Obsession


These Christian Louboutin Gold Pumps made me weak at the knees...oh how i want...if only!

I guess i'll have to find myself a similar more affordable pair!

Dear me Britney!


Poor Britney...she just can't seem to grasp the whole " wear decent clothes" look right can she? Walking around Miami in a ridiculously mis-matched outfit. There's the hat, the hair extensions, the corset, the gold metallic bag, silver metallic shoes, sunnies and strawberry necklace...all make for one clustered outfit! When will Britney ever make a real comeback?

I heart Victoria Beckham


This is one hot outfit...i love how simple and sexy Victoria looks while shopping in LA. OK i have a leather skirt in black...but PINK! oh it is marvellous isn't it? Wearing her own line of sunglasses and chunky brown heels, she looks like one hot mama!

Jessica Simpson -Single and VA-VA-VOOM!


Jessica Simpson is officially back on the meat market after announcing the split with boyfriend John Maher on Friday. While dating Maher she was a Bla, but now were seeing our old Jessica come back sexier than ever...if she looks this hot every time she splits...she should always be single in my opinion!

Matching couples-Nicole Richie & Joel Madden


I have been seeing couples colour co-ordinating there outfits around town, but lookie here Nicole Richie and Joel "i was wish i was a real-rocker" madden, have decked themselves out in matching colors in an attempt to tell the world there still madly in "love"...Joel even got the sides of his head colored blond, while Nicole wore a black head band and the ever so trendy ray-bans. hopefully he'll get back with Hilary and she with DJ AM note: although matching is cute, its not a cure for a broken relationship.

Colored Jeans


Colored denim is fast becoming a popular trend with Levi's and Tsubi dunking denim in crayon and neon bright dyes. Don't call this a new trend, but more a recycled trend from back in 2005, were every punk rocker and celebrity such as Cameron Diaz and Rachel Bilson were splashed out in colored denim. Ashlee Simpson was first spotted wearing the trend this year and then came Fergie and now Victoria 'never-skip-a-trend' Beckham, has caught on. I haven't seen many catwalk examples of this trend, so im guessing its more of a street subculture trend. Although many rock followers and punksters have been wearing colored jeans for years, colored skinny jeans are set to be hot with mass fashion followers. Want colored jeans? go to mycatwalk or denimology sites to purchase away.

My Purchases-hoodie and pashmina


When i looked through my wardrobe i realised that i had so many hoodies in different colours-EXCEPT BLACK! So i decided on the way back from uni i would stop over at the mall and get some lunch and and a BLACK hoodie, not green, not blue, not purple but BLACK. Anyways hoodies aren't hard to find because everyone loves how comfortable they are. Hoodies are a fashion model's backstage staple cause their easy to remove and casual. So i scored my self one for $25, but while standing at the register i spotted a green pashmina...it was so soft and long that i decided to buy it for $5.00. It looks ugly in the pictures but it is actually nicer on!

My purchase


Last week I was browsing Ebay, not really wanting anything...until i came across a pair of 80's Wayfarers. I never wanted a pair of wayfarers purely because they remind me of the bad fashion sense my parents had back in the day. But when i came across these Gold and Dark purple Vintage wayfarers i had to have them! I don't know when I'm going to wear them, but they are pretty cool to look at and most people with that funky street style happening will pull them off perfectly. With the whole 80's vibe coming back i felt a need to have these.

Kate Moss- Runway to Real Way


For Fall the Versace runway fascinated front row viewers with it's bold choice of coloured fur from red to blue. This fur look was a stark contrast to spring's neat and proper parkers. It's big, It's bold and it's Bright! And the only person that can show us how to adapt it to the real world is Kate Moss. She donned the Parker last season and now she's sporting the colored fur. She tones down the look by teaming her hot pink fur coat with skinny jeans.

Celebs who caught my eye


In the past few weeks i some celebs have caught my eye for very random reasons. Fergie caught my eye for looking unusually hot with killer heels and a fresh face with none of that garbage she normally wears. On the other hand Kimberley Stewart and Lindsay Lohan decided to go for the cute matchy-matchy look with stripe tees, short shorts and oversized sunnies. Then theres' Chloe Sevigny who's style is always impeccable in my eyes. But from far away i thought the photo was with her wearing this pink dress was actually a photo of barbie...but sadly i was mistaken. The last photo is of Sharon Stone and Melanie Griffiths but when i first saw it all i could think of was, that this is exactly what Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie will look like in 30 years with one strangling the other (hopefully).
