Dolce & Gabbana Turns Up the Heat

Sunday, January 29, 2012

Alert: Dolce & Gabbana's chili pepper print cropped bustier and skirt.

I spotted this dynamic piece from the Spring '12 collection in my February issues of Nylon 
(p.40) and ELLE (p.100). Of course it caught my eye so I ventured off to see the rest of the collection and it did not disappoint. Sure, it's not what you would normally expect to be walking down the runway, but I admire it for the very same reason; no reservations and just all out with their imagination. I love the thick straps and form-fiting nature of the bustier and the width/flow of the skirt makes for a perfect item to walk and dance around in.Who knows if it's in any other magazines (which I'm sure it might be in), but all I know is that it's a fresh, fun and spicy print that I wish I could rock! Some may hate it, others may love it, and all I have to say is: Dolce & Gabbana, I love you.

THE Hat

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Hellllllllo! Let me start off by saying that it's so hard not to online shop....*phew* glad to get that loaded statement off my chest! Anywho, I've been obsessing and lusting after the perfect hat by Rag & Bone. I love this label and everything they offer, but I seriously cannot stop eyeballing this bad boy. The black floppy brim fedora goes with everything, so I decided to show you how you could wear it all 4 seasons long (Mom, if you're reading this: Look at how many uses I'd get out of it! *nudge*). I've also noticed my infatuation with the color black. I can't get out of my black clothes and it was so hard to add color for these outfits, but I tried! 
So here they are, enjoy outfits and admire that beautiful hat.

Head Gear

Thursday, January 19, 2012

I am a self-professed "messy hair" person. I don't like combing my hair, putting it up, curling it, flat ironing it, etc. I know this makes me sound a bit like Ke$ha, but who cares! I like the disheveled look and it cuts down my 'getting ready' time greatly. However, lately I've been on a headband kick to give my untamed hair some pizzaz. I think it's fun to rock statement head gear; definite alternative to costume jewelry. The beauty of all of this? You can make them yourselves (as simple as getting a scarf and knotting it a fresh, new, way)! Now, I buy all of mine and the cut off cap for them is $5.00, but if you're into DIY, you can get crazy cool outcomes. Don't be afraid to experiment with patterns, shapes, materials, etc. I might dip into the pool and have an attempt at making one...or a couple, but for now, here are some of my favorite pieces. Enjoy!
PS: I've been addicted to this tune, so I thought I'd share!

Wildfox | White Label Spring '12 Collection

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Another collection I've been eyeballing. I've always loved the Wildfox brand because of their quirky clothes, amazing cuts and reinterpretation of styles. However, this is my first time looking into their White Label and I am floored. This collection is right up my alley and I want it all - the hair too! (even though its been done so many times for recent collections of other designers, I can't get enough) There are so many pieces, but I just chose some of the ones that I am dying to get my hands on - can we say birthday present(s)? A girl can dream, right? Enjoy!

CHANEL Pre-Fall 2012 | Paris-Bombay Collection

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

I've been meaning to blog about Chanel's pre-fall 2012 collection, but the spark was in full swing once a lovely lady (Sarah H.) put up the video titled 'Details of the Collection'. Some people hate this collection and others love it....and I love it, too! I'm into the eclectic vibe, yet very 'Chanel'-like features it retains. Let's not get started on the sultry makeup and badass hair (dreads) and most of all the divine jewelry/accessories. This all feels very mysterious and seductive to me. The theme being Paris-meets-Bombay is refreshing and made for a beautiful runway. So aesthetically pleasing. So decadent. So Chanel. 
Enjoy some of my favorite shots/looks!
