The transitional in between


I seem to always like
anything
transitional

I think
the awkward
freshness
appeals to me

When I'm thinking of clothing

Seasonally
I prefer
spring
and fall

Historically
I love
Regency 1810-1820

Now

I prefer Marc Jacobs' Resort line
to the summer collection of 2009
What a surprise!!
its something transitional

I think this designer's collection
is a great example
of more to come
in this century/decade
soft and hard silhouette/textures
put together unexpectedly
and large scale
complicated techniques
done with printed textiles

Pass The Bubbly Please

Ah. The New Year is upon us - where did the time go? One more reason to celebrate with friends and loved ones, and one more reason to dress up and look fabulous. I'm sure you have all found your dresses already but I just passed by the store window of BCBG the other day. BCBG has always attracted me, there is something simple and ethereal about their dresses, and their cutting (for me at least, is superb).

Their dresses make you feel almost old hollywood glam or simply modern chic. I know they're rather simple, definitely something you've seen before, but talk about excellent draping! I don't know, there's something about them that makes me fall in love.


Love the velvet bodice of this dress!


This dress is actually much more beautiful in person.


Aughhh...I need to get this - look at that sleeve detail!


So simple, so lovely (especially the colour). Hm, I will advise you not to wear a headband that the model demonstrates...


Ok, kind of generic I know, princess cut blah blah blah. But the material! And a colour that would look great on all skin tones.

What are you doing for New Year's? &equally important, what will you be wearing?

Yes, two.

They are comfortable ... and I love, love, love them.

Steve Madden - Legion


INC Brook Riding Boot - mine are chocolate brown and aren't so shiny.


Oh sales how I love thee.

Merry Christmas To All, and To All A Goodnight

Merry Christmas everyone! We hope you had a wonderful evening and a beautiful day! Were in good company with family and friends, wrapped up warm - or dressed downright cool! - with good food, wherever you are!

This spread instantly made me want to layer up with colours and scarves - I actually decided that I had too much black in my closet! Is that even possible? Love the fresh faces and the braided hair. What wonderful winter inspiration - take the look of fall and bring with you into winter, enough of the dull greys and the generic black. I can't believe I just said that.

Happy Christmukkah!

Something to drool over on this special day....Yes, I'm in love with red pumps! But just to add some variety, these are not Louboutins (remember the Turkey day pumps?), but from Stuart Weitzman. Dear Santa.....

Happy Christmukkah everyone!

Psst! I heard Bloomies is having a big sale on the 26th!
