CELINE SKATEBOARDS

29 Sep

What would cause an otherwise sensible girl who has never (properly) stepped foot on a skateboard to pull out her wallet and purchase not one, not two, but THREE skateboard decks? Call it obsession, love, addiction, whatever it is, I’ve got it. bad.

It all started with an unforgettable collection by Celine. Followed by an impossibly cool ad campaign. Then one of my style icons, Christine Centenera, rocking them all over the place. One of my favorite musicians, performing in this (women’s) top at Coachella. 

So when Jayne of Stop It Right Now created these Celine-inspired skateboard decks nothing was going to stop me from scooping them right up. Nothing.
It’s as if all of 2011 was just a sequence of events leading up to this moment purchase! (Like I said, obsession). Now begins the overly anxious wait for the postman, you know that feeling.

What on earth am I going to do with three unusable skateboards, you ask. Well it might go a little something like this….

STYLING TIP:: THE HALF TUCK

28 Sep

elin kling half tuck street style

I haven’t tucked my shirt in since…. well probably since it was mandatory! But next time I wear a collared shirt (which I can’t stop wearing lately) I’m definitely going to be rocking the half tuck. There is something so stylishly undone about it. 
And anything Elin Kling does is fashion brilliance.

I’m absolutely loving all the COLOR this fashion week season. Both on and off the catwalk. Colorful and feminine is the name of the game, have you seen Dolce & Gabbana yet?? Genius. If not, I’ll probably have to do a post on it tomorrow. Along with the announcement of my giveaway winners!

MILAN FASHION WEEK:: PRADA

24 Sep

PRADA SPRING 2012 FASHION WEEK backstage PRADA SPRING 2012 FASHION WEEK PRADA SPRING 2012 FASHION WEEK sunglasses

“Italian men have two loves in their lives: women and cars.”
Miuccia combined everything sweet – roses and pleats and jewels, with the very literal inspiration of vintage cars. Skirts feature flames like those painted on old sports cars, the sunglasses look like car fenders and the shoes look like Matchbox stilettos. Any other designer and this is might be gimmicky, but no doubt Miuccia’s car creations will be EVERYWHERE this spring – editorials, Anna Dello Russo’s feet, everywhere. 
Question is, when Topshop starts selling car fender sunglasses, will we be buying them? Or will they look like we stole our little brothers’ Disney glasses?

WHAT SHE WORE:: POPPY DELEVIGNE AT LFW

22 Sep

Poppy Delevigne was a standout for me at London Fashion Week. From her Christopher Kane gorilla dress (which still looks good!) to her green Sass and Bide blazer. And all topped off with her red Ray-Bans — points for anyone who can rock red and green in the summertime. You might also know Poppy’s sister Cara, also a model, I’m sure you’d recognize her if you frequent Asos (Cara has caused me many an Asos purchase!) in addition to being the face of Burberry.

I wouldn’t mind a few of their genes 😉

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK:: RODARTE

19 Sep

rodarte spring 2012 VAN GOGH rodarte spring 2012 rodarte spring 2012 CUT OUT rodarte spring 2012 STARRY NIGHT VAN GOGH rodarte spring 2012 STARRY NIGHT VAN GOGH

Van Gogh. 

The dreaminess of Starry Night worked into the dark, romantic silhouettes of Rodarte. I’m just confused as to why this didn’t happen before now!? Along with Van Gogh’s sunflowers artfully erupting all over sundresses and full retro skirts. It’s a match made in starry heaven. The construction is exquisite in that Mulleavy sister way, like those cutouts in the front. I’m so in love with how the swirly girly prettiness is juxtaposed against the dark panda eyes of the models. Rodarte, you beauty!
