B as in BALENCIAGA

September 29, 2012 § Leave a comment

Before the Balenciaga show, the head designer Ghesquiere said ‘this was the most sensual collection I’ve ever done’. I’m in love with the CRISP boxy cropped top in tweed and the draped gorgeous skirt in the second image. So well done.

FACE THE DARK

The other day I went into a Sephora store. I was looking for a dark berry/burgundy lip stick.  I found a LIP STAIN from Sephora whose color I really liked. – A sales girl approached me and said ‘you’re blond and you can’t wear such a dark shade.’ Well, let me tell you – I think I can. Fashion is about doing the unexpected and also doing whatever feels right from your point of view. Face the light and the dark. Do what feels right to yourself. One more day to go until Hammock and sunbathing time. Whoop whoop! / Cream Lip stain ‘Dark Berry‘ by SEPHORA, MANGO leggings, CHARLES DAVID heels, CELINE bag, F21 shirt and earrings, Vintage sunnies by AMERICAN RAG.

The intricate wicker weave detailing on those dresses is fascinating! Focus on wide shoulders and short hem lines. Those leather men’s trousers look great with the cropped, drapped white top. This is one of the top Spring 2013 collections from PARIS so far! Great job, Olivier Rousteing!

WHITE over HAZELNUT LEATHER

I love to hunt for narrow-fitted leather pencil skirts at American Rag. The sheep nappa leather of this particular skirt is so soft and has such a rich hazelnut color. It is somewhat empowering to wear leather apparel. Even though it must only be accepted as office attire in the fashion industry! Lucky me. / VINTAGE bag, ZARA White T-shirt, American Rag sunnies and leather skirt, CHARLES DAVID booties.

These grey FRINGE BOOTIES by Charles David work so well with a monochromatic outfit. Let the booties do the pocahontas talk./ White suit jacket and black shorts by ZARA, H&M trend white blouse, AMERICAN RAG Vintage sunnies , CELINE tote bag

I got these bold celine-inspired square sunglasses at AMERICAN RAG this afternoon. I think statement sunglasses look best worn with a basic white T-shirt and red lip stick. / CELINE bag, self-made Jeans-shorts, White T by ZARA, CHARLES DAVID heels, JCREW snake belt.

LA isn’t really the right city to wear heavy knits – I’ll keep on dreaming of these heavy over-size knits anyways! Especially the BURGUNDY KNIT is on on-trend with it’s fading dark coloration. Grey jersey sweater with a silver leather clutch. Unbeatable love affair. Currently craving these ACNE boots. The calf hair+velcro detail is so sharp.NEON colors continue to be strong for Fall 2012. Love this one in tumbled calf leather with black heavy zipper.
