Fou or Chou? Fall Accessories by Dolce & Gabbana

First of all, I must admit that I was never the biggest fan of the design duo- except for a pair of beautiful, heavy boots I found for last winter in Italy. Looking at these pictures, I can't decide what to think of the new accessories for fall 2012.. They're kitsch, that's out of question, but can't a baroque looking/ lace/ buttoned/ gold appliqued accessory look really nice dressing up a simple outfit? It wouldn't be the first time fashion makes us go back in time, but this far, maybe a bit to fou for my own taste.

Oh and also, this shoe looks like a delicious birthday cake with marzipan and icing!!!



I like Acne. I like white. I like interesting fabric mixes. This all adds up for me to love this collection  and I curse anyone who disagrees! Available since mid April.

Wanted: Collier de Chien by Hermès

For quite a while now I've been obsessed with the entire "collier de chien" line by Hermès and I've decided to reward myself with a piece for my next good grade. I'm tending towards a belt, but can't decide on color and material of the leather and hardware yet- there are just too many options.. For now, I'm in love with the vintage, colorful, exotic skin versions of the classic, that go for a steep price of up to 15 500 USD (the blue alligator skin one). Will most likely end up with a plain black or camel though..


Dreams ARE Reality

Isn't it funny that the hours after posting about how floral patterns in nature inspire me for prints on a silk short, I actually find one that comes really close to what I'd imagined?
It's from BCBG, perfectly silky and I absolutely adore the way the flowers contrast with the blue, faded snake print of the short. "Add to Shopping Cart".

Flower Prints

I took these wandering around since the weather has become so beautiful. I love the color of the flowers and how they stand out against the deep blue and green of the backgrounds.
Really made me dream about perfect silk shorts with prints exactly like on these photos. I have them pictured exactly in my head, just never came across anything like them.. yet.


How Low Can You Go?

How do we know in what way/to what extent to display our femininity (cleavage) when picking a dress? I want to illustrate this very important but nevertheless difficult question- and its answers- by red carpet pictures taken at the Oscars and the Golden Globes 2012. In this first example we have the A) beautiful, B) skinny and most importantly C) small boobed bosomed Emma Stone and Charlize Theron. Both look absolutely stunning and not a bit cheap when wearing very deeply cut dresses and this is so because of a perfect balance of A, B & C.

Second case: J.Lo. She is pretty, no doubt. Also she might be curvy, but she's far away from being fat. However, her dress looks much less flattering because she does not fulfill C/ has a C (cup)!!!

For her, no categories! She's amazing. She looks so gorgeous and natural at her age. Period.

Pamela Anderson - Image via eonline.com
Hihi. I want to name this picture: D Cup And Up. Well, except that you can see ALL parts of her femininity, her cleavage is way waaaaaaayyy too deep.

Conclusion: the rise of cleavage should directly correlate, if not be causal with the decline of cup size.


Dree Hemingway Pour Sandro

The french brand in cooperation with Dree, Ernest Hemingways' great-granddaughter and successful model, has launched a collection of "All American Clothing" including many cropped t-shirts, jeans, shorts and dresses, featuring many native American details. Every piece "celebrates the American Style", as so accurately described by Vogue France, while at the same time remaining "faithful" to Sandros' French roots. All in all, a very well managed collection (but I love every piece of Sandro).
