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

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.

Ana Torres 2009 Bridal Collection

leave a comment »

The following dress has a classic basic style which looks lovely but is dressed up with the sun-ray pleats the whole way around the skirt of the dress. It elongates the skirt (and thus the legs) of the bride.The change of direction as the fabric is pulled tight around the waist helps to accentuate the small waist. Loving it.

I’m in love with the next dress because of the use of lace. It looks like very fine lace and that is one of my all time dreams for a wedding dress so of course I was drawn to this dress. The beautiful flow and falling of the skirt, combined with the golden embroidery and pearls around the waist, just top off the whole design. Dream design!

Terry Fox 2009 Bridal Collection

The bottom of the dress and the edging shown on the right side of the dress (the left as we see it) looks horrible. but the photo shoot is gorgeous and the bodice with matching jewelry is nothing short of beautiful.

One Teaspoon - Cavalry body Suit & Salvaged Recycled Short

OT6107 Cavalry Body Suit | $109.95

OT6200 Salvaged Recycled Short | $89.95

I don’t like body suits, but man I positively love this body suit by One Teaspoon in their new collection.

One teaspoon - Photocopy Bird A-Line top

OT6380 Photocopy Bird  A-Line | $69.95 

OT6140 Union Jacket | $129.95

OT6200 Salvaged Recycled Short | $89.95


I’m loving this Union Jacket in the Winter Collection and I think the signature print for One Teaspoon (the hummingbird) looks adorable of the singlet and paired with the cropped Union Jacket. Of course the most annoying thing about both of these is the pricing of them.
