As you probably all already know, Jimmy Choo is doing a collection for H&M. The collaboration is exciting, but the items are not too innovative, different if you will. BUT I am definitely going to buy this bag, it is amazing, perhaps I'll buy the matching ballerinas. Love it. X
No, I'm not talking "The sound of music", I mean my 2 favourite things at this very moment in time. Which currently means: a song from the late, great Billie Holiday which I recently rediscovered on my ipod, and the latest 3,1 Phillip Lim show which I spotted in the header of Models.com.
1. Billie Holiday's "I'm a fool to want you".
Also known as the music from the latest Chanel No. 5 commercial.
Lately I've been hearing/seeing a lot about Alexa Chung's hit mtv-show "It's on with Alexa Chung". After browsing about the internet I found more and more pic's of her and her fashionable guests. Here are a few of my fav's:
With Olivia Palermo(check out her amazing shoes!)
With Karolína Kurková
With Stephanie Pratt
With Selena Gomez
All images are from mtv's Buzzworthy, where you can find all of the episodes, and details of Alexa'soutfits...even though I often prefer the guests' outfits over hers.
Sequins Sequins are the cheapest form of embellishment, and one of my favourites. When done right sequins can look absolutely fabulous, but if done wrong can look like an 80's trainwreck. (Nastygal vintage)
Colour Block I think c0lour block should be confined to dresses, they always look the best... although this Modcloth tee is quite fantastic . Colour block styles are easy because they don't need a lot of accessories etc. because it will look a bit packed. -I love this one by Alice+Olivia: (Olice+Olivia - Net-a-Porter)
Sweaters Yes, I know sweaters didn't get invented during the 80's, but there were significantly more people wearing them for some reason. I love versions with sequins/embellishment on them, as you might have noticed: (Nastygal vintage)
Stone/Acid wash Denim I really like stonewashed denim, it exudes rock chick but when paired with a powder pink top transforms into rock-chic, style I adore. Pair them with pretty much anything! (Nudie jeans - Needsupply)
As you may have noticed I haven't mentioned big shoulder(pad)s, I haven't because I define them as the "bad" fashion from the 80's. I truly dislike the exaggerated shoulder. Why? I don't know really, haha.
Whilst I'm writing this, wind is blowing ravishly and rain is pouring. Though I prefer the fall (clothing choices are more versatile), the weather which comes with it is downright depressing. This, and school has started. Which isn't a bad thing, completely. I do enjoy the feeling I get when I've completed something. But I also love sleeping late and awakening naturally, instead of by the sound of an alarm clock which has been buzzing in my ear for the last 5 tot 10 minutes.. Oh well, at least it's the weekend.
