Well Rested...Rebecca Minkoff

As many of my readers know I have just spent a week on holiday and was away from the blog due to the extreme workload but I would like to announce that I am well rested and will be posting frequently again, "always leave them wanting more"- I don't really know who said that but it popped into my head. Exams start tomorrow and I ask myself am I looking forward to them? Hmmm I am well prepared...Who saw the Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2011 Collection? I DID! haha so here is my opinion on it and a few pictures of my favourite garments. If there is anything I love it is street style fashion, most people lack that sense of style and end up looking like clowns(the sad ones) but Minkoff captured the very essence of a 'cool' girl in this collection. From a metallic twill bomber with leather sleeves with drainpipe pants that have snakeskin patches on the knees to the ever so classy sweeping dresses in watercolor patterns with and sweaters that t ease the eye with a glimpse of the shoulder. I LOVE IT! Below are my favies hehe!


P.S if you can't see perfection inthis collection raise your fashion taste haha I am just saying...

Been Missed

EVENING FASHION JUNKIES! Just over a week that I have been gone, but as you know from my previous posts I am back at school so I have been really busy with the studies, infact I cut my study session by 15 minutes just to write this post hehe aren't you lucky...Also I have received many e-mails from readers wondering where I have dissapeared to...I have not dissapeared, I have just been occupied so in the mood of 'being busy' I will keep this post short.

Long weekend here in South Africa so I will be heading to the coast to soak up some sunshine in the wait for Spring! With holiday comes SHOPPING thus creating a nostalgic feeling of Spring Couture earlier this year...I am just going to post pictures of my favourite items by Alexis Mabille, but I promise to add my opinions on each later on.

It is creations like these that are a constant reminder to why I love Fashion and Couture so much...

Soooooo like it is back to school, back to the books and (uhgg) back into the uniform. I make the uniform work for me (hehe yes that was a bit of vanity) but it is true, you can't imprison my fashion expression (and that was the rebel in me)!!!! Inspired by the uniform I decided to post about a bit of a 'foramal' Winter/Fall look.

Allison Blouse

Silk DKNY skirt, dare I say more...

Gucci Python Clutch

Alexander McQueen Titanic Ballerina Pumps

Hope you like, why not pop a comment on your opinion of this look, do you think it works?
I guess this post turned out into another style guide haha.

Fashion Alert

It breaks my heart to go out and see people wear terrible clothing and then to have the nerve to walk around like they look better than everyone else! (YOU ARE NOT FOOLING ME), Pffft! It is Winter my fashion addicts and this is the one season we can all go crazy, experiment and dress to kill with the variety of clothing choices we have this time of the year...So here I have selected a few items to fix up and improve any shabby look you may have going...Pride ourselves in the way we look. "When we look good, we feel good. These are the fundamentals to emotion in fashion"-Shizi, being that said these items are amazing haha I love them and I think most people can pull the look off.

This elegant white ruffled jacket will give you a clean and edgey look while keeping you warm.

Why not colour block the white jacket with jet black skinnies to give you a sophisticated casual look...

Now have this t-shirt peeping through your white jacket against your black skinnies and we have the STATEMENT, this will stand out I assure you.

Refined rebel? I sure am, so be sure to add these rings to your look.

So the above, I leave you with...Follow these tips and you sure to be the one leaving a lasting impression..."Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman."
— Coco Chanel. Best said...
