Bonjour my darlings! I apologize for not updating at all this week, it is utterly unacceptable. Anyway, there is so much to talk about and so little time to talk about it! First of all, I haven’t even had time to look through the NY collections or the vogue that I got on Friday. That in itself is a sin. It’s not really, but I’m sure it is somewhere in the fashion world. Anyway, let’s see what there is to talk about. On Saturday I volunteered at a food bank which made me feel quite happy. Today I went shopping and bought a few AMAZING jackets (a fake Chanel jacket, and a lace and leather blazer), a pair of seamed leggings, a ruffled high waisted skirt, and a pair of flats.
Jacket : H&M
I realize it’s missing a button : I will sew a new one on
Sorry for the terrible pictures! I know they’re horrid but I promise there will be better ones soon!
Okay…the New York collections. The ones I have seen have been extremely different from the ones last fall. I feel as if the recession has affected these collections more so then those last year. Masculine dressing seems to be more widely accepted according to Marc Jacobs(Marc by Marc Jacobs ) , also according to Jacobs, it seems as if high fashion isn’t necessarily the complicated layering and details like it was last year. This year, layers and long cardigans, knits and graphic prints are all you need to look perfectly avant garde.
Alice + Olivia is probably one of the most inspiring and awe striking collections that I’ve seen (or actually looked through).Besides being perfectly Alice in Wonderland like it’s very lady like …but with a twist. The clothing itself isn’t necessarily the newest or most innovative, but that’s not what makes the collection stand out. In fact the opposite is what makes the collection so unique. The ability of the designer to make this collection a breath of fresh air…that takes talent.
Say safe, happy and healthy!
