runway to highstreet - givenchy fall 08

I know everyone has been crazy about the Givenchy Fall 08 collection but I have to mention it as well. I always adore Givenchy and the Fall 08 collection was so strong and captivating. It made me want to dress all black this fall. I really love the dark goth romance, it's definitely my favorite trend of the season.

200th post

Happy 200th post, dear blog!

On another note, I've been suffering from a bad cold for the past few days. I didn't go to work the last two days. My days were filled with countless tissues, watching Alias DVDs in bed, drinking tea, even more tissues, sleeping and watching TV.
I hate being sick, I'd rather go to work than stay in bed all day. It seems like a nice thing to do when you actually feel fine but when your head hurts like hell and you can't stand looking into a TV or computer screen for longer than an hour without getting dizzy it's not that fun.

But I'm feeling better now and I will go back to work tomorrow. I still have to blow my nose every 10 minutes though but I guess my co-workers will have to deal with that. haha.

runway to highstreet - rodarte fall 08

To me Rodarte's RTW Fall 08 collection is like Alice in Wonderland gone bad.
As the designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy already said "the connection between the Kabuki tradition and that of modern Japanese horror films." Horror films. Exactly what comes to mind when looking at those dresses. But at beginning the collection is quite powdery and dreamy, which is why I thought of Alice in Wonderland...with a knife..haha.

After looking at all these "slasher" dresses I think I definitely need something out of red chiffon!

outfit - feeling a little McQueen Fall 08 - ish

I got this black tunic at Zara the other day and have been wearing it like crazy ever since. It's made of wool and silk and feels really soft and light. The cut is also quite interesting, it's shorter in the back than in the front and the material drapes nicely if you wear it with jeans or a tight skirt. On Saturday night I wanted to try something different and paired it with a white petticoat. I think it kind of gives it a slight Alexander McQueen FW 08 look.

current Topshop cravings

Outfit: day and night

Yesterday wore this wonderfully simple and comfortable grey t-shirt dress.

Switched to shiny nylon leggings for the evening as it got a bit to cold for bare legs. I also exchanged the jeans jacket with a blazer which I belted with that incredible Burberry-esque Zara belt.

permanent vacation

I'm back from my 4 days trip to Nice (France). What an enjoyable time that was, I came back completely relaxed (who knew 4 days could make such a difference), tanned and many happy memories.

The city of Nice is, well nice ^o^ But it's almost a bit too touristic for me and the beach there isn't really nice. So we went to a beach in a small town maybe 15min by train from Nice which was way nicer.

Prada-esque lace

I haven't been shopping for a while and so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw all the new items at the H&M Trend section. They had a lot of fall stuff in already, including these wonderful lace pieces:

It's very very much inspired by the Prada Fall 08 collection which I really loved and so I couldn't resist and bought the rose/beige tulip skirt and the black top. The funny thing is I actually saw a beige lace skirt paired with a black lace top in the Prada store display just a few days ago, so I wanted to try the look myself by pairing these two pieces. I am actually quite happy with the outcome but I don't know if I'm going to wear it like that.

a better look at the skirt:
