A Lot of Chanel Goes A Long Way

Let me just start off by saying that I love this girl! 



Rosa Cha designs are usually unique swim wear, but if its no longer summer us girls still have to have something to swim in right? The designs have simply been changed to better suit the colder weather that will be here in a matter of months and i'm loving the retro lingerie-inspired swim wear. The line shows off curves while still staying original and sophisticated and I think Chanel Iman definitely shows that in this campaign.

It's My Boyfriend's

Influenced by similar fashion trends the boyfriend jeans and the boyfriend shirt, the boyfriend blazer is quickly gaining popularity slowly, but surely. This new addition to the boyfriend family has found a new kind of sophistication that will definitely be kept around for this year and years to come. I've been on the lookout for this new desire of mine as buying it online via ASOS just won't do. I've been told that scouring thrift shops and the local vintage stores is the way to do it if i want a truly unique boyfriend blazer, and that's exactly what i'm going to do.

There are two simple rules to wearing the boyfriend blazer: 
1. make it oversized as a fitted blazer defeats the whole purpose of it being "your boyfriends".
2. roll up the sleeves to expose the wrists to get that feminine look
This look has been featured among many SS 2010 catwalks such as Araks, Charlotte Ronson, Cynthia Rowley and Boy by Band of Outsiders and i seriously can't wait to go hunting for one of my own.

Rings Are The New Necklaces

I've started to notice that rings are quickly taking over the jewelry world, with every detail in them maximized and modernized to fit whatever outfit. It seems that it's no longer completely necessary to wear long chains and heavy adornments. A statement ring by itself is enough. Jewelry extraordinaire Tamila Purvis from the Rosemont Fashion Week in Australia knows exactly how to go about making some pretty amazing statement jewelry, rings to be more exact though.

Even fashion and celebrity icon Madonna is coming out soon with some amazing jewelry from her new fashion line Material Girl. It's a family affair as this line (made by the original material girl herself with the help of her oh so chic Creative Director/daughter Lola Leon :) ) is choc-full of clothes, bags and jewelry that will surely have you humming that oh so famous song. Coming August 2010 only at Macy's!

Just Crop It

Been away for a while i know, but schools out (finally!) and i'm glad to be back! 
ITS SUMMER and boy, is it hott-as-hell! Yesterday, 2 hours before my annual July BBQ i had to walk out to the nearest clothing store to purchase a belt that i was going to wear for the event, only for me to change my outfit later on because of sufficient water damage to my dress, but anyways thats not the point. The point was that yesterday was an extremely hott day of 33 degrees farenheit and i didn't break a single sweat thanks to my crisp white crop top. :)

I love how on the hottest of days that these new forms of shirts can help you create your own breeze and its now clear that Calvin Klein is thinking the same with his new S/S11 collection sporting men wearing crop tops as well. Its just another piece of clothing that men have decided to add to their closet right along with today's women.
