Economize vs Fantasize: Lemon print dress


Economize: Primark: appx £15

fruit prints are a major hit this summer but I won't be splurging on one-season wonder frocks by Moschino, Stella McCartney or Prada....Primark comes to rescue with this gorgeous summer dress!

Michelle Obama's bold fashion statements



I remember when Michelle Obama met the Queen for the first time, there was all this talk about her breaking the protocol by bearing her shoulders...big woooop. So last week Michelle came back and she was bearing her shoulders not once but twice :). I love Michelle's bold fashion statements and absolutely adore her Black Ralph Lauren gown paired with Tom Binns necklace. She is, no doubt, the first lady of fashion!


The Perfect Wedge: Jimmy Choo Snake-print espadrilles

These Jimmy Choo snake-print espadrilles have got to be the perfect summer wedge! Super soft and comfortable and would go with any outfit!

Everyone's wearing Isabel Marant Jackets

Isabel Marant Jackets on net-a-porter.com

Katie Holmes, Zoe Soldana, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Natalie Portman, Blake Lively, Gwyneth Paltrow


I wouldn't mind bagging one of the above fab jackets by Isabel Marant! You can dress them up, down, and they will look equally fabulous! Net-a-porter.com has a good selection. I think I'm temporarily done with my obsession with Chanel tweed jackets :).

Now you can get a piece of David Koma at Topshop. This Georgian born designer started making waves after both Beyounce and Cheryl Cole went for his signature bodycon dresses. Topshop pieces are very similar to his RTW collections.

Deirdre Harte knitted necklaces


I came across these fab knitted necklaces at Better Fashion Week pop-up store in Powerscourt Shopping centre. I liked Deirdre's knitted sweaters as well, but these neck pieces made a major impression. Will be sure to follow her work in the future.

Lady Gaga is the most powerful celebrity according to Forbes


So Miss Gaga is officially the most powerful celebrity in the world according to Forbes. This status is based on earnings, mentions in media and popularity on the Internet. I thought powerful celebrities are meant to inspire us. Other than jamming to Gaga in the club and occasionally doing the "Bad Romance" RARARARARA dance routine with my gfs, I'm not all that inspired. Thankfully, my psyche is somewhat stable at this point in my life and I can appreciate Gaga for what she is: monster epotage based marketing machine, which propelled her to success. Hoping this celebrity is having a positive impact on all the teen girls and boys around the world. Then again, Justin Bieber is number 3, and I am inspired by his success story...baby baby baby oh!
what a fickle world we live in....

I Want I Want I Want: Givenchy Moroccan Sandals


Earlier this week theOutnet.com was selling Givenchy Morrocan Sandals...hold your horses, they were all sold out within an hour :(. I got nothing left but to post the pics and admire this art form from a far!

Oddity of the Day: Shoes with floating Goldfish

ummm I wasn't sure at first if this poor goldfish is alive...or least meant to be. It appears that fish is plastic. Regardless, these are some odd looking shoes.

Look of the Day: Color Blocking in the Sun

Color blocking in the sun

Constance Constance on my mind....I was day dreaming about Hermes Constance bag and built this look around it...


Gwyneth Paltrow collaborates with net-a-porter.com



I'm liking Gwyneth latest stint with net-a-porter.com. She posted a range of exciting spring looks on her blog, all pieces from net-a-porter.com. They are all on a pricey side but oh so chic! Check out all of Gwyneth's picks here. On a side note...could this woman get any fitter??

Oddity of the Day: Flat pack moon shoes

Want a pair of carbon-fiber footwear, designed to walk on the moon? I could totally picture a die-hard fashionista like Daphne Guinness parading in these platforms....At least they are not defying gravity like her last pair.

Style Crush: Shu Pei

Chinese model Shu Pei is my latest style crush! I love how she recycles her Celine Boston tote and Miu Miu loafers in all of the below outfits. Shu Pei's trick is to stick to classics but jazz them up with killer accessories!
