Favorite Fashion Moments

The best collections are the ones you can single out and remember, "damn that was a good one". For me, Spring 2010 was a season not to forget. I still dream about it!

Miu Miu - it's the ultimate alice in wonderland! the prints and the beautiful mary jane pumps were what I loved most about it. it had to be an editors favorite too because it was in every single fashion publication.

Viktor & Rolf - an editorial dream yet highly impractical and dreamy. i loved the cutouts and the ballerina style of it. i kind of love most of the things they do and this one just hit the spot.

Prada - how can anyone forget? the beaded dress made so many covers and everyone had chandelier shoe fever. I loved it but couldn't afford it so I bought cheap shoes online and tried to DIY. my laziness > my need to wear chandelier shoes so it never happened.

WHAT TO WEAR NOW: PREFALL

its been raining and after the rain stops it will be september and you know what september means - fashion week in new york! you could be wearing fall collection attire...but if you are sensible you will be wearing pre-fall.
my dream looks:
  • kate lanphear wearing anything leather from alexander wang or helmut lang
  • ADR in an emanuel ungaro or alexander mcqueen dress
  • carine roitfeld wearing exotic skins from celine or anything givenchy
  • taylor tomasi tossed in something orange from phillip lim or a balenciaga fur coat
  • christine centenera in a flashy print dress from proenza schouler or matthew williamson
  • miroslava duma wearing something sleek from the row or lanvin

accents of red

i usually am very adverse to the color red. i relate it to flashiness or bad taste. but this summer, i have been opening up to the color more - I like it as a point color here and there. I am not sure if it is a phase but I have always been keen to Dorothy's ruby red slippers and long skinny red wool pants. I also have a belief that there is are certain shades of red that look luxe or good on your skin tone.

I warmed up to the color much so when last year I saw this image of MIroslava Duma rocking a red-on-red suit. How comfortable and confident does she look? And beginning of Spring I had been pining for a pair of red jeans. I never found the right fit but look at these yet-to-be-released Wranglers, meow! I want now!
