BEST LOOKS FROM FASHION WEEKS

Think the scene outside of the fashion weeks was even better than the shows themselves this season. Cool it girls & fashion editors show us how to style up our looks with no fear! Lots of neon brights & prints, huge envelope clutches, piles of chunky bracelet, ethnic details etcetc...These girls definitely have a headstart on Spring 2012!

Mad for Kate! She is sooo cool!! Kate Lamphear, fashion editor for ELLE


Leelee Sobieski  & Alexa Chung in Proenza Schouler


Leigh Lezark, looking very elegant

BEST OF SPRING 2012: JASON WU, PRADA, J MENDEL

Amazing colours, dramatic skirts,  preppy, poppy, and soo wearable.!
This season's collections in general have been disappointing, maybe because there hasn't been too much of the OTT stuff, just very very wearable stuff. Some would possibly even say mainstream. Hmm.. not that I mind.. But I am pretty sure we will see plenty of knock offs down the line..

BEST OF NYFW: PROENZA SCHOULER

I like the PS guys because they're very consistent. They bring these new techniques & fabrications to their collections, and yet each time, you can always tell it's their style. They may use a similar color tone, lots of prints with black based backgrounds etc, but it always seems different to me. Plus it's always so ladylike (those skirts that end just above the knee!) but with such a cool edge and never boring , any girl can still wear it out. This is a brand legacy in the making!!

BEST OF NYFW: 3.1 PHILLIP LIM

Icy cool minimalism. Funny I always had the impression of Phillip Lim being a very funky dark navy/gold/embellishments kind of label, but lately it's just been all this minimalist color blocking stuff. It's very Californian for sure, very cool and very easy to wear. No weird crafty accents circa Proenza Schouler Fall 2011 RTW that everyone seems to be copying. Badly, I might add. This is.. refreshing!

BEST OF NYFW: VENA CAVA

Best in style. Quirky 40s kooky vintage feel. Love the glasses, the cool leaf shaped prints, the colour palette (orange is such a Vena Cava colour), ribbon tie details.

BIRTHDAY MONTH

Hmm.. okay, is it bad that I'm slacking off so much these days? I promise lots of new dresses in my shop soon. But I've also been enjoying my birthday month of September, hanging out with friends & going to random events. You probably won't guess what age I turned, but it's pretty significant I guess! Can't say that I've ticked off all the items on my list, but not bad so far!.. xo

HANGING AROUND TOWN

What I've been up to --

WORK! getting samples made.
Hanging around with friends at cool cafes at Duxton.
Going to art museums and such. Typical stuff.
