Summer's Here

The most simple yet perfect summer outfit from Topshop inspired by Stella McCartney spring/summer '08.

It's All In The Details

I love street style blogs and one of my regularly visits is the blog Emma's Closet. The owner is Emma Nygren, a twenty-year old Sweedish girl. Her style is just unbelievably cool. Her outfits are always daring but still not over-the-top. I love it when people can achieve that effortless look, because I think that you shouldn't look like you spent hours picking outfits even if you did. The thing that caught my eye, were the details. Her clothes aren't all designer or vintage, though she mixes that in too. She shops in cheap chain stores like everyone but somehow manages to not look like everyone else. It's the details, her incredible eye for style and pairing that you couldn't have thought of.

Balmain's Summer Dress

I'm in love with this dress from Balmain's spring/summer collection.

The florals, the colours and the dreamy, flowy shape = gorgeous!

Alexander McQueen Shoes

The shoes from Alexander McQueen's fall/winter 08 show are officially on my wish list. They're edgy and fierce. They're sky-high and have got this mysterious vibe because of the leather and the black colour. I love the small details and I think they are a new version of the current ankle boot trend.

Prada Bags

Aren't the Prada bags from the spring/summer collection just divine? I mean the colours are amazingly beautiful and bright. Sienna Miller is among the celebs that have one.

I also like the fairy bag. It's got beautiful drawings made by artist James Jean. It's gotten rather popular and sold out in two days in Neiman Marcus.

I was really excited to see the bags for fall, but was kind of disappointed. They were only in black, brown and beige and the ones with the lace are just not something I would wan't to carry around. The ruffles give it nice detailing, though.

Crazy For Curls

I completely adore curls at the moment. Not crazy curls, more laid-back, casual, small waves.

This photo started my curl-mania. It's from the H&M spring campaign. It's just something about the volume but they still have a no-effort style to them.

3.1 Phillip Lim / Christian Dior / Viktor&Rolf

I've tried getting curls that kind of ended like small waves with lots of volume. You go to sleep with braids in a wet hair and then take them off in the morning. The braids have to be tightly braided, and start as near the roots as possible.

Pink Jeans - Two Outfits

I haven't posted a lot on this blog, but I'm going to post often. It's going to be short posts with wish lists and my opinions on all things fashion.

I'm a huge fan of Urban Outfitters and I spotted these neon pink jeans and put together two outfits.

I love the Jesus tee with matching Converse.

The tie dye tank is perfect with the ikat printed scarf.

Balenciaga vs Topshop

I spotted a dress on the Topshop website a couple of weeks ago and I thought it remindend me of Balenciaga's SS08 dresses.

It's got the same idea - they've got similiar shapes but the Topshop one is more wearable and suitable for 'real life'. The prints are different though - the dress from Balenciaga has a floral pattern but the Topshop dress has an ombre techinque. It's great to catch Balenciaga's look for less.

Nicole Looking Gorgeous

Nicole Richie at the Broad Contemporary Art Museum Opening Gala on February 9. It's her first public appearance since the birth of Harlow, and I think she looks absolutely stunning.

She's maybe a bit too orange in the face. I like the hair though - really relaxed but still pulled together.

That clutch is so stylish. The colour is amazing, it's great with the creamy tone of the dress.

I also like that she kept jewelry to a minimal, with just a cute 'H' neckalce and a gorgeous ring. Her style is way much better than back in the Zoe days. Rachel has the tendency to overstyle her clients (and herself), so they always look like they're trying too hard.

Look For Less

I love finding cheaper versions of designer pieces. It's just something about the feeling knowing you're getting a luxurious look for less. Of course you can never find them exactly the same, but sometimes the difference is so minor, that people don't notice the real thing from the fake.

Forever 21 have the Alice Ankle Boots (on left) for only $21.80. These are in burgundy, but they're also available in black. Then on right we have Christian Louboutin Lapono Shoe Boots from Net-A-Porter on $775. They're also available in blue. Of course you can never fake Louboutin's, because of the red sole and they have a luxurious touch. These two are not the same but they've got the same style and are similiar in many ways.

You almost can't spot the difference between the Platform Peep Toe Shoe from ASOS and Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Mary Janes. But you can spot the difference on their price tag. The ones from ASOS (also available in red) cost $57.03 and the YSL ones are $660. To name a few, Victoria Beckham, Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Lopez, have all been seen wearing the YSL pumps.
Bluefly have the Tribute Mary Janes in black suede on $528. They also have Yves Saint Laurent Ankle Strap Platform Pumps in the same style as the Tribute Mary Janes. They're also $528.
