‘Onesie Fever’

In Uncategorized on May 23, 2011 at 11:59 pm

According to Peter Alexander, everyone is catching onesie fever this winter. Now I dont normally give advice or ideas for men or the men in your life but for this I will make an exception since I know that deep down it is a guys wildest dream to own a onesie. Available from Peter Alexander stores and online. And don’t worry, there are leopard print onesies for the girls!

Lover at RAFW

Rosemount Australia Fashion Week has come and gone again. One standout for me was “Lover”. These are my top 3! Im loving the use of bright red in this collection to give it an oriental feel. The red heels dress up a beautifully cut dress.

On the Steps of The Met

In Uncategorized on May 8, 2011 at 8:42 pm

In the fashion world there is no party invitation more desired than one to the Costume Institute Gala, or “Met Ball.” It is strictly reserved only for Fashion A-lister’s. This year the Gala paid tribute to Alexander McQueen and his designs, with many of the attendees dressed impeccably in McQueen. These three are on my best dressed list:

1. Jason Wu and Diane Kruger (in Jason Wu)

2. Thakoon with Mia Wasikowska (in Thakoon)

3. Miranda Kerr in Marchesa looking like the Angel she is with Orlando Bloom.. But what gets my really frothing are those amazing Nicholas Kirkwood heels!

The Dress!

My apologies for not blogging more often, I have been in Sydney! I was also at a 21st on Friday night when the Royal Wedding was happening,  that didn’t stop me from google-ing the dress as soon as I found out it was Alexander McQueen. I thought Kate looked really beautiful and for all those that want some in depth info about this dress its all on the official wedding website.  Which has everything from where the embroidery was done to the design aesthic and pages uniforms.
