Found this beauty on the side walk the other day.  Pic by me.

Can’t get enough of sun flowers.  Pic is also by moi.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!





More blue please!

I’m predicting a trend that blue is a new black.  And marble is a current favourite. This pic makes me giddy.
Keep warm and dry everyone.




Colours and Patterns

11 10 2011

There is nothing like mixing patterns and colours into your ensemble.  It will make you feel so alive and beautiful.  Take a chance and run with it.  After all fashion is suppose to be fun and experimental.  Life is too short to be afraid of colours and patterns.  Throw away that box and live your life freely.

Shot by Tommy Ton during NYFW.  Found via Style.

Wishing you a bright vibrant Tuesday.





Prediction

18 09 2011

I have been spotting cameo inspired jewels lately.  Wondering if I might have a second career as a fashion fortune teller.  I think the collective consciousness is at the forefront of this influence.  Take a look at this prediction via NYFW.  All photos from streetfsn.  Which by the way is a fantastic street style blog.  A bit more intimate than the more famous ones out there.

So excited to have our Caitlin in the shop today.  Please stop by and say hello to our lovely C.  She could help you find the most perfect pieces to cheer you up on this gray rainy Sunday.  Wishing you a delightful weekend.





Half Pass Three

4 04 2011

We used to stack multiple plastic Swatch watches on our wrists back in the day.  Years later, the trend has returned but this time more mature, ladylike, and much more sophisticated than my teenage year.

P.S.  Thanks very much everyone for your sweet birthday wishes.  I’m very touched by your kindness.  Thank you.





Neon!

There is so much ultra cool neon colours everywhere in Asia during my recent trip.  Fantastic!  Here is some inspiration.

Yummy and refreshing pallette.  Lovely images via streetfsn.

Have an amazing Wednesday!





Chanel Pre-Fall 2009 Collection

25 12 2008

My friend Salwa has been telling me about this Chanel collection.  I only now have a chance to check it out.  Also my friend Jessie of Pattern People bloged about this collection as well.  I love love love this “Paris-Moscou” Russian inspired collection.

03m

One of the best work from Karl Lagerfeld.  “A Russian Uniform”

Are those tall boots or leather leggings?  Either way it is amazing!

21m

The pattern on the dress is quite beautiful.

29m

I adore this look.  Lagerfeld’ interpretation of the classic Coco Chanel’s suit.  So modern and timeless.

54m

The embroidery work on this piece is delightful.  Many hours of work gone into making these pieces.  All hand done.  I truly appreciated that Chanel still supports the French embroiderers, milliners, goldsmiths, and shoemakers.  Their skills are incredible!

58m

Just stunning.

The head pieces are the work of art.





Return of the Grunge Era and Doc Martens

27 11 2008

I have been spotting the plaid trend everywhere in Tokyo.  The 1990s is back for sure.  Fashion is a funny time machine.  Hopefully this nineties revival will be a bit more refined and more chic.  I can’t take the over sized lumberjack plaid flannel look.  I also have been seeing lots of Doc Martens on my latest trip and on many fashion blogs from all over the world.  They are back!

I think this look is such a cool take on the eighties and the nineties.  Lace, leather jacket, and of course Doc Martens.  I love how she layers all of her pieces and the big scarf added a nice touch of volume.  This is from Stockholm Street Style fashion blog.  Thank you for the image.  Check out their blog here.

I also think that Doc Martens got their big push when the famous British model Agyness Deyn wears them everywhere.

Marc Jacobs really captured the mood of the era so well in his 1993 collection for Perry Ellis.
