Only Yesterday Was The Time Of Our Lives

I'm having one of those weeks where nothing, and I mean nothing, is going right. If there has been a way for things to fuck up, then they have consistently done so. So folks for those of you who are having a shitty week enjoy the above pictures, because who doesn't love a cute, fluffy, adorable animal?

One Foot In Sea, One Foot On Shore

Creatures of the Wind presented a Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection based on the concept of a sailor wife waiting for her lover to return home for sea. As a cynical romantic (which means I abhor happy endings, while secretly hoping for them at the same time) I'm sold. Add an understated, off beat elegance removed from the usual fashion week glossed over perfection and I'm a happy girl.

I Tried To Say That's Not The Only Way

There are numerous reasons why I'm a little bit infatuated with Prabal Gurung's Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection, but in the end it comes down to the details. The hints of hot pink hiding under red, the intricate lace panels, leather detail and zipper embellishments. For me, this is a sign of successful collection, when the small details are as important as the whole.

And I'm Walking With Spiders

When We'll Be Lovers, Lovers At Last

If anybody could successfully marry punk and a Mata Hari aesthetic it would undoubtedly be Jean Paul Gaultier. Behind the scenes images from his Spring 2011 Couture collection, which was quite simply perfect.

My Current Obsessions

I'm currently lusting after mint green and turquoise shoes of all persuasions. Wedges, peep toe and man style flats, I want them all. So Mum if you're reading this, the Messeca wedges (first pic) would be a lovely birthday gift (insert wink here). From top to bottom, Messeca Coroline wedges, Topshop Luminate platform heels, Jeffrey Campbell flats, Asos Pumpkin peep toes and Dolce Vita Marcela flats.
