think green

The first step for "thinking green" is by getting into character by literally wearing the colour. Donning flower earrings and caring for animals gets you bonus points of course.

Below is an absolutely stunning, STUNNING dress by Roberto Cavalli (want it so badly!) and a knit dress by Alice Lee to get you started.
I <3 owls.

If you purchase the April issue of Allure Korea you get a coupon for a "think green" canvas carry bag exchangable at your nearest OliveYoung store. I've already got mine, it's absolutely perfect for lugging around my textbooks.

Seoul Fashion Week A/W 2010

has already started. Crossing my fingers that I can make it to at least one show.
Bugger to all these tests.

Apparently when I was like five years old I somehow got my hands on my mother's make-up palette and sort of did this to my face, i.e. paint it.
Plus the walls like a true artist.
You'd think that early training would have considerably improved my cosmetic skills as an adult but total failure. Hehe.

This Pamela Love for Camilla and Marc bird claw bracelet reminds me more of velociraptor claws than a backyard bird. Do you remember them? I was totally terrified of the kitchen scene in Jurassic Park but that was way back in the day when I was in the single digits.
Someone should totally design dinosaur-inspired jewellery because they were such cool animals. I would so wear it, collaboration anyone? :P

Strike a Pose Clémence

I think this is the sort of photoshoot I would like to participate in given the opportunity whether I'm in front of the camera or behind, it doesn't matter. There's just something carefree and light-hearted about these images. I think it has something to do with shooting in the streets, though I wouldn't mind being in a natural setting such as wheatfield. Either way...

The April 2010 cover of Vogue España with Edita Vilkeviciute. She's wearing such a vibrant and energetic dress, kudos to the stylist who chose to put it on a front page.

I've just come back from the movies and I saw Daybreakers (2009), which was definitely just a cross between I Am Legend and 28 Days Later (the zombie film). I'm a bit of a Bram Stoker fan so I've watched A LOT of intreptations of vampire movies (yup- Underworld, seen that one too) and I have to say that I was a tad disappointed. I thought it was going to be sort of on line with Interview with the Vampire but the film didn't have much momentum and it was gory as heck which was a pity because I love watching Sam Neill act.

Karmen Pedaru @ Chanel Fall RTW 2010/11.

Most of the time I don't really "get" Chanel's runway concepts but I do appeciate their variedness and uniqueness. Remember the big gift-wrapped present, the aeroplanes and the barn?
However, splashing around in wet puddles wearing chic Arctic-wear is definitely my couple of tea.

I love Clémence's hats, she has an awesome collection of fedoras and wide-brims. It adds just that little more to her nonchalant hair.
All the straw is from the Chanel show, do you remember that particular collection?

no kidding, it's like a landing strip

Currently model crushing on Karmen Pedaru.
I'm just wondering, are all Estonian girls this pretty?
I also adore Carmen Kass and she's soooo beautiful too.

Happy WHITE Day!

Hey guys, I hope you're having a nice Sunday. I've just come back from a relative's wedding, it was a nice opportunity to glam it up in a dress and heels. Haven't done that in such a loooooong time. So much fun for a happy occasion!
But back into a tee-shirt and sweatpants when I'm at home for comforts sake. Plus I think I ate a little too much lunch at the reception :P
A bit of internet surfing and I end up on Clémence Poésy's tFS thread (I could spend hours on that thread) and I come across this picture.
It's a screencap from her latest film, Pièce montée (2010). I really want to watch this movie when it comes out!
She's literally wearing my dream wedding dress with just the right amount of lace. If anyone knows the name of the designer who made this heavenly confection please drop me a line in the comments box. If I never find out it will haunt me forever.

Sonia Rykiel for H and M

So.....I think it was the 27th of February when H&M opened its first store in MyeongDong, Seoul. I decided to check out the store on the following Monday hoping it would be a little less crowded. BIG MISTAKE. I waited for 20 minutes stretched out in an 100 metre queue then preceded to be engulfed by the crowd within the shop. Waited 30 minutes for a fitting room and then returned everything because none of the sizes would fit (all the racks were devoid of my size) and left the store because of oxygen deprivation. Ah, I did manage to grab some lingerie on the way out. They did have a nice underwear selection which was surprising. I was hoping to lay my fingers on some Sonia Rykiel for H&M but the collection was a no-show. Turns out that it will be coming out a bit later in Seoul. I've got my beady little eyes set on all of the outfits shown on the left of these pictures, especially the multi-coloured striped shirt.
Afterall, Sonia is all about stripes.

calling an early day

I am in total love with those red-bow Prada shoes.
I think Miranda has a bit of a Prada obsession judging from the many pics I've seen of her and her handbags.
We could be soul mates.

Kate Bosworth REALLY KNOWS how to rock a good dress.
I think I've seen one movie with her in it (that would be her role as Lois Lane) but I would seriously buy every dress she has ever worn on the red carpet.
Here she is at a Montblanc Charity Cocktail event wearing
Peter Pilotto.
She looks smashing!

When I think of the label, Pucci, I usually associate the brand with psychadelic prints. Now I'm not really sure what sort of direction Pucci is going but I definitely like it.
Sensational party dresses.
Scandalous but sexy to boot.

get me some shortcake

There's something very quirky and very Alice in Wonderland about these covers for Lula Magazine S/S 2010.
I think it must be those striped tights. They're so much fun!

Another thing to add onto my list of aspiring footwear finds. Striped tights and sheer fluoro/pastel stockings. I've yet to try the sandals-with-socks look from the likes of Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 & Prada Fall 2007.

When I find the right pair of sheer goodness, I'll be sure to post a picture wearing them.
Can't wait to see the new Tim Burton, Alice in Wonderland movie!

Woah, this image is massive! And I only wanted to share a picture of Miranda's fabulous hair.

She's such a cutie pie!
