It Was A Foutain Of Dreams

One of my favourite aspects of the couture collections is that while the clothes are breathtakingly beautiful, in general, they are fantastically unwearable. How can you not love an industry that produces beautiful artistic and at times unwearable designs? The above images are from the Givenchy Spring 2011 Couture collection.

But I Waited My Whole Life For Just One...

Chanel Spring 2011 Couture collection. As always, Karl Lagerfeld produces even more exquisite, lust worthy clothes. The man can do no wrong.

Wishing You A...

HAPPY (belated) AUSTRALIA DAY! I hope all my fellow bloggers and Australians had a fantastic day off (if you're boss was so kind) and did all the usual Australia Day festivities - barbie, backyard cricket, Triple J hottest 100 and maybe cried a little when Australia lost to England (wasn't the Ashes bad enough?).

I Want To Be Forever Young

If, like me, you grew up on a steady diet of Disney movies, The Baby-sitters Club and JTT (if you don't know what that acronym is for, save yourself the pain and don't ask), then this post is for you. All I'm going to say is Claudia Kishi all the way... oh and Kristy - I knew it.

Most Wanted

Panelled lace chiffon long tee dress by Shakuhachi. Quite possibly the perfect dress and my new must have.

It's Like A Sugar High Whenever You Come Around

This image is just too gorgeous not to be re-posted. Nirrimi from We Live Young is insanely talented and routinely takes incredibly beautiful photos. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend taking a look at her blog.

On Scraps And Pieces Left Behind

Originally I was only going to post the Rose Dharma dress (first pic), but the more I looked through the Stone Cold Fox website, the more I wanted. Now all I need is the combined wealth of a few small European countries to fund my fashion related dreams.

You Float Like A Feather In A Beautiful World

I have the shopping bug (well I have the shopping bug all the time, but Christmas + post-Christmas sales = happy times) and it seems everywhere I go I'm surrounded by things that I need to buy right this very second. The above dress (first pic) is a recent purchase from Sportsgirl (on sale, of course), which is a chainstore copy of the Camilla and Marc Cherry Frock (second pic). I'm in love. It is perfect in every possible way - art deco print, shoulder pads and a price that is insanely cheaper compared to the C&M version. Is the Sportsgirl version quite as lust worthy as the C&M dress? No, but I'm happy nonetheless.

New Buys

You may remember I asked for your opinion here about whether I should purchase the Shakuhachi lace and mesh cropped tee or lace and mesh dress tee dress. Well after much procrastinating I decided on the cropped tee (above) and am now looking forward to its speedy arrival.

All The Corners Gather Up The Crowd Tonight

Now I don't actually have any fireworks on hand, so imagine the above babies are the real things... ready? Happy New Year! I hope eveyone's 2011 is filled with love, laughter and beautiful things.
