Paris Fashion Week: Balenciaga

Fall 2008 Ready to Wear

I love love loove this! Amazing silhouettes just like he did last season but this time the pieces are much more wearable.
This is so sleek and elegant yet has a very feminine touch to it.
I'd say this is minimalism at its best, congratulation to Nicolas Ghesquiere.

Paris Fashion Week: Isabel Marant

I'm totally in love with every single piece of this collection. It's exactly my style and what I'd love to wear everyday. It's nothing really innovative or extremely fashion forward but definitely very wearable and pretty. If I had the money I'd make the entire collection my fall wardrobe =P. I especially like those Grey semi-opaque leggings.

Paris Fashion Week: Vivienne Westwood

Fall 2008 Ready to Wear

I always love to see what Vivienne Westwood comes up with, the collections are so much fun to watch and never boring. Overall the collection isn't really wearable but that's not what I expect from her anyway. Nonetheless there are some nice individual pieces.

Paris Fashion Week: Balmain, Christian Dior

Yay, Paris Fashion week has started! Paris is always my favorite..can't wait for Balenciaga, Chloé, Lacroix, Givenchy, Dries Van Noten, Hussein Chalayan, JPG, Labvin, Miu Miu...so many great shows in Paris <3

Balmain made a good start for Paris Fashion week. I have to say that I love almost every piece of this collection. It's so rock and roll yet glamorous.

I was quite disappointed with the Christian Dior show. It all looks kind of cheap and that make-up is just plain tacky. I picked out some pieces that I liked...still Galliano could do so much better >.<

Milan Fashion Week: Fendi

Fall 2008 Ready to Wear

What a fantastic collection from Fendi! The cocoon shapes are wonderful and those coats...fantastic!

My Beauty

So my Shop:Lush bags arrived last week and I've been using this one ever since it arrived.

I'm very happy with the quality, the leather feels wonderful and also the lining inside of the bag is nice. The only thing that I think might not be of such goo quality from the look of it is the hardware. For example the zippers are not that "smooth" if you can even say that..haha. I hope you know what I'm talking about. I haven't really tried out the other bag that I ordered, the black one. But I will post pics when I do.

Milan Fashion Week: Emilio Pucci

Fall 2008 Ready to Wear

I looove the shoes <3

Milan Fashion Week: Gianfranco Ferré

Fall 2008 Ready to Wear

Wonderful craftmanship, the draping, the shapes and the fabrics...love it all!

My new Cheap Mondays

I have a pair of grey Cheap Mondays that I got in Stockholm last year and I love them. I've been wanting to get another pair for a while and got these dark demin stretch ones yesterday. They're so comfortable and soft. I will probably get some more in Sweden in two weeks as the store that carries them here didn't have such a big selection.

Milan Fashion Week: Prada, Etro

Fall 2008 Ready to Wear

I love all the lace used in this collection and the transparent pieces. An outstanding collection in my opinion.

Fun, fresh and very wearable!

Milan Fashion Week: Burberry Prorsum Fall 2008 Ready to Wear

Burberry Prorsum + Christopher Bailey = ♥. Great coats as always at Burberry and wonderful dresses. I'm in love with that color palette and the cool look of the entire collection.

Rachel Bilson on TRL in Jenni Kayne

I adore her Jenni Kayne outfit. The combination of the very glamorous skirt and the casual shirt is wonderful.

shop lush order

Ever heard of ShopLush? They make Designer "inspired" handbags which you can order online. It's an affordable alternative if you don't have the money to spend $1600 on a designer trend bag. Well I ordered these two pretties:

1. Large Pleated Buckle Handle
2. Collapsible Stitched Adjustable

This is my first time ordering from the site so I'm quite curious about the quality of the bags. Can't wait for them to arrive, I've been wanting an oversized bag for a while now but never found one that I really liked. I will post pictures when I recieve the bags.

NY Fashion week

I've been so lazy with updating my blog...the last update is a week back! I can't believe it. Especially since NY Fashion Week started last friday (01 Feb). I've been following all the collections picking out favorites and saving pictures but somehow I never got around to post anything. But I think I'll do an update tonight and post some of my favorite collections so far. ^o^
