I WANT THIS OUTFIT!!!

with one comment

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.

One Teaspoon 2009 Winter Collection

leave a comment »

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.

Ruth Tarvydas Spring Summer 2009 “Hollywood” Collection

leave a comment »

Another posting for the Tarvydas Collections. This is from the “Hollywood” Spring Summer Collection of 2009.I chose to post this dress because of the detailing on the front of the dress around the neck line. The picture really isn’t that good and doesn’t show off the dress properly because the model is so pale and as a result the dress doesn’t stand out, but I have seen it before on another girl wearing it to their school ball and it looked amazing. It would look positively stunning in either a dark but bright red or royal blue with silver detailing, or in a darker purple with golden detailing.

Ruth Tarvydas Autumn Winter Collection 2009

Ruth Tarvydas Autumn Winter 2009  - #3434

I’m loving these two dresses (above and below) by Ruth Tarvydas. They’re both part of the new Autumn Winter Collection of 2009. I’m loving the fabric choice of the top dress and the details around the strap and neck line. I am positively in love with the back of the dress below as well. I true Tarvydas style the beading and chain work in the detailing would most likely be extremely heavy and weighty, but it looks so marvelous, so who cares right?  After all, us females suffer for fashion all the time.

This dress here is another favourite from the collection. Generally speaking I don’t like the whole metallic thing or completely beaded and shiny dress sort of thing, but this along with very few other things has become an exception to my usual disliking. I’m also loving the loose hanging material at the bottom of the extremely low cut backing of the dress. I’m not a big fan of the new craze about the low cut backings… but that’s mainly because I personally can’t pull it off. The style is actually really sexy though.

Zuhair Murad 2009 Spring Summer Collection

with 2 comments

These are just a couple of the dresses from the Zuhair Murad 2009 Spring Summer Collection – my favourite ones of course.

The photography for these dresses, both above and below, is the style I love to see for the maxi dresses with lots of fabric. It looks awesome and you get to see just how big the skirt is.I love the pattern and colour of the dress below in particular. As much as I like the backing of that dress as well, I adore the above dress’s neck and waist line – the tucks, folds, draping, and to top it off, the added patterning. They both remind me of the versions that I have seen produced by Kookai in the 2009 Summer Collection.

The use of colours in the dress below are beautiful. I usually absolutely hate brown and blue being mixed together, but this looks exquisite – especially with the soft fabric and draping. It’s beautifully emphasised with the lines of the folds at the top of the dress and the knot tie over.

Generally, I hate both metallic dresses and sequined dresses. However this seasons rise in use of sequins for party dresses has made me begin to appreciate the more classier styles of it. This dress below by Zuhair Murad, is beautifully done and manages to looks classy and sophisticated without the usual tackiness that I usually relate to shiny over the top pieces.
