My Current Obsessions

Maniamania, the kind of jewellery I imagine a New Mexico living, crystal loving, new age hippie would sport if they had been introduced to the design talents of Tamila Purvis and Melaine Kamsler.

Sweetheart Can Bargain

To be perfectly honest, the only thing I noticed about the Burberry Fall 2010 Ready-to-Wear were the divine, covetable and insanely wearable jackets. My biggest problem? I'm not sure which one I like best.

Oh Sam, What Do You Think Of That?

Grace Coddington, creative director of U.S Vogue, the very reason to watch The September Issue and the only reason I read U.S Vogue.
Lyric: Oh Sam - The Vasco Era

I Know What's To Come

Part tribal romanticism, part casual elegance and all sex. Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton bring their Australian style to London Fashion Week.

All About Quotations

As Long As You Follow Me

That face.
Lyric: The Ride - Joan As Police Woman

So Sweet, You Make My Mouth Water

I'm not usually a fan of Marchesa, but the latest collection by Georgina Chapman is so exquistie, so well executed, I've been converted.
Lyric: I Want Candy - Bow Wow Wow

Oh Please, Don't Drop Me Home

Perfect simplicity at 31. Phillip Lim.

One Day We're Gonna Live In Paris

The perfect cocktail dresses paired with perfect lace up boots at Prabal Gurung.
Lyric: Paris - Friendly Fires

I Can See It All From Here

Edward Scissorhands meets a streamlined New York aesthetic at Altuzarra.
Lyric: Written in Reverse - Spoon

The Rest Of The Nothing Of Anyhow

For me, the most impressive aspect of Nicole and Michael Colovos' designs is their ability to create not only a uniform aesthetic, but an array of well tailored separates that work in an already established wardrobe. The Fall 2010 Ready-to-Wear Helmut Lang collection avoids the drawback of instant fashion - inaccessibility - and creates clothes that are not only fashionable, but extremely wearable.
Lyric: The High Road - Broken Bells

Most Wanted

Currently wishing I owned every single one of Matina Amanita's 'Little Bird' rings from her Spring/Summer 2010 collection. So adorable and oh so covetable.

But I Run Too Slow

If you have the time and the inclination, I strongly suggest perusing the stunning images Tommy Ton (the genius behind Jak & Jil) captured from the Adam Kimmel Fall/Winter 2010/2011 fashion show. I would re-post the images here, but in all honesty the (horrifying) masks the models are sporting scare the absolute beejeezus out of me. All it needs is a clown and I'll be having nightmares for weeks.

Darling Heart, I Loved You From The Start

I love the simplicity of this dress, especially when paired with the silver heels. Calvin Klein + Kate Bosworth = ah-mazing.
Lyric: Hardest of Hearts - Florence and the Machine
