God I want this outfit sooooooo much! I love the long boots trend and I really want to get some, however the first problem is the whole hooker stigma if you don’t wear them right. Plus my home isn’t really a very big city and it’s definitely not concerned with fashion unless it’s the fashion trend of the moment (ie at the moment its tacky cheap gladiator sandals) or the fashion that costs a thousand dollars a piece and means you can poke your nose up at everyone.

The other thing is that it doesn’t really get cold enough for this outfit. That’s why I can’t wait to get to England or Paris next year for an exchange semester and I’ll be there in time for winter. It will be amazing! It would also make living in New York amazing as well when I eventually get there (which is where gossip girl is based anyway). 

I love winter. I love winter fashion.

I want those boots (they’re so much classier than all the ones I’ve seen – including on the internet) and I just want that whole damn outfit!!!!! Damn Blake Lively.

Fendi love

with one comment

jessica stam for fendi

This is a picture of Jessica Stam for Fendi and oh my gosh, doesn’t it look AMAZING!! I’ve noticed that Fendi use a lot of fur in their clothes, so I’m not such a big fan of their clothing lines, but I am, however a rather large fan of their bags. Fendi know what they’re doing when it comes to the bags. My particular favourite is the Crossword Patent Clutch $920 (pictured first below). Of course it looks better in black, but this version also has it’s own spunk and goes with the fashion line.

I’m also loving the bag that Ashlee Simpson has in the picture below – gorgeous and timeless all in one piece = brilliant. I’m also quite loving the dress that she’s wearing. Overall a very good look if you ask me.

Lastly, I’m quite in love with these Fendi suede lace up linen wedges. Personally, I even think that they look awesome in the orange colour… although they may be red and the colour is just wrong because of the photo. I think it would look better in the orange rather than the red anyways – especially paired with something like a thick patterned floral print press in purple and white with tiny bits of orange. (I can see the dress in my mid, but can’t remember who did it)

Gucci Dresses= hot.

gucci by Frida Giannini 2009

Above are the pictures from Frida Giannini’s (the creative director for Gucci) designs for the 2009 Gucci collection. I’m loving the leather jacket with the buckles. Leather jackets have definately been the “it” item for this winter and this one here is definately rocking. The black dress, although it missed the high season for the full length casual dress, this walks that line between casual and formal. The top of the dress and neckline are a different but sexy take on the full length dress and the flower print on the dress helps to dress it down just that little bit more. I’ve always loved flowy fabrics and the chiffon and draping on the dress is definitely no exception.

Rhianna is a favourite of Frida Gianni as well and at the “A Night to Benefit Raising Malawi and UNICEF” hosted by Gucci and Madonna in February 2008. I think the Gucci green dress she wore to the event is positively gorgeous and elegant. The belt adds that tiny bit of edge to the elegant dress which totally suits Rhianna.

I like this pink Gucci dress as well although I think that Rhianna’s hair and makeup sort of ruin the elegant look. I’ve never been a big fan of her short hair cut, but I think it looks quite strange here with the curls creating too much volume at the top, leaving the side and back looking cropped and boyish. While the eye makeup colour look awesome, they don’t really suit the dress and would be better suited to a night out clubbing. The lipstick is also definitely too light for the overall look. The brooch completes the look and brings the it up a notch and a half.

Herve Leger by Max Azria Spring 2009

Herve Leger by Max Azria Spring 2009

Who doesn’t  absolutely love the two dresses above? They have the short and harsh cut designs of a modern dress, and the lines and colours combined with the cut give it an almost futuristic sense, but Azria’s use of the lines around the waist i genius giving it that feminine touch as it accentuates the females naturally smaller waist and therefore helping to produce  curves! How marvelous!

the dress below is an older dress by Azria, but I’m totally diggin’ on how cute it is! Ashlee Simpson wore it ti the Mtv Video Awards in 2007 and I think she looks stunning. Her beach swept locks also suit the dress (probably more so than the carefree style of the model from the Azria catwalk). Although the model does have the waist looking smaller and as such accentuates the dress more lets face it.

Victorias Secrets Bridal Underwear 2009

victorias secrets bridal underwear 2009

I am so totally loving  the underwear ensemble above! I mean, hot or what?!? Of course the fact that Miranda Kerr is modelling it doesn’t exact hurt at all, but damn it’s still so cute and yet sexy! The one below is also pretty damn hot. I’m loving the bra and suspenders, but not the lace skirt thing so much. Definately a kinky night spent inside sort of thing to wear… or a “birthday present”… or wedding night. Whatever 😉

Mui Mui shoes to die for!

with 3 comments

mui mui shoes 3mui mui shoes 2mui mui shoes 1These shoes by Mui Mui are to die for. They’re both elegance and party chic in one shoe. If they were the same creamy golden all over then they would be ideal as simple wedding shoes that wouldn’t take away from the dress. Of course that would only be in the event that you didn’t have a snow white dress. 

For a golden cream coloured dress though, these would be tres tres magnifique! So lovely! Even with the black soles and heels, I think I would still use them as wedding shoes or at least at a black tie event – ie when wearing a ball dress.
