New Year New Look

Christmas has come and gone so there should only be one thing on your mind now (with the exception of your plans to return the not-so-spectacular items you may have gotten from the distant relative) - "what am I going to wear on NYE??"

My suggestion is breaking the sea of common black strapless dresses with something more fun and vibrant. If you're worried that a coloured frock may look too day time then glam it up with some great accessories!

New Years Outfit

Dress - Lanvin
The rest - Asos

The one downside to looking great in this number is that you may have to put up with people coming up to you to say "Orange you glad 2012 is coming to an end?".

Merry Christmas!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas filled with fun, happiness, and well..prezzies :)

The Liebster Award


A couple of days ago I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Charlotte's Couture! As a new blogger on the scene, I was very excited to be recognized by another fashion blogger. The award is given to blog with less than 200 followers to help spread the word in the blogosphere. 

You'll receive the award from a blogger who has already received it. You are asked to answer the 11 questions given to you by the blog that has nominated you. Afterwards, you are asked to create 11 questions of your own for another 11 blogs with less than 200 followers. It's basically like a blogger chain letter.

Here are my answers:

1) What is your favourite item in your closet and why?
My Moschino belt. (Technically, it's not IN my closet..but I just love it!)
2) If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?
Disney World.
3) What are you aspiring to do?
Wear stilettos forever.
4) Coke or Pepsi?

Mrs. Taylor on FNL. She's so cool.
6) Who or what has made the biggest impact in your life?
No clue.
7) Describe your style
8) Who is your favorite designer?
Depends on the item.
9) What is your favorite trend?
Leather details. Leather jackets. Leather pants. Leather tops. (I feel like I'm Bubba from Forrest Gump talking about shrimp here)
10) What are you doing for the holidays?
Watch Project Runway marathons on TV.
11) What is your New Years resolution?
To finally buy that Louis Vuitton tote I've been eyeing.

Here are my 11 nominees:
8) Jessie

Here are my questions for them:
1) Would you ever rock a Canadian tuxedo?
2) If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
3) Would you rather eat chips for 3 days straight or cookies?
4) If you had twins, would you dress them identically?
5) Feathers or sequins?
6) Smokey eye or bold lip?
7) Who is your style icon?
8) Favourite TV show for plot?
9) Favourite TV show for fashion?
10) Flats or heels?
11) What do you consider as the worst fashion faux-pas?

Would love to read your responses so please leave a comment here when you respond :)

The End of Gossip Girl

Millions of girls and tens of boys tuned in last night to finally discover a secret so well kept that it battles the mystery of the Caramilk bar - who was Gossip Girl. And while the viewers sat on the edge of their seats with their headbands in place (bow always on the right like Blair once said) to discover the identity, there is no doubt that they were also wondering how the fashionable Serena and Blair were going to round up their 6 season run. 

With two weddings in one episode, it was looking like a wedding gown face-off. Blair Waldorf was definitely off to a good start in an amazing powder blue Elie Saab gown. Beautiful wedding gown fever came to a halt when it was time for Serena Van Der Woodsen to tie the knot in what looked like a gold lame/tulle collision gone wrong. Although I'm not sure how that collision could ever go right. I couldn't agree with @sparklequeen80 more when she said she looks like Glitter N' Gold Jem. Admittedly, I had to google what that was but just look at the resemblance! 


What do you think? Which wedding dress do you like better?

Need Now

Skirt: Alice and Olivia 
If it was up to me, I would be in a leather suit everyday. Ok, maybe not to that extent..but there's no doubting my love for leather!

Currently in NEED of a pleated leather skirt as a fun escape away from pencil skirts.

Crop Top Christmas?


With midriff being the new cleavage, questions have risen. How much is too much? And where is it appropriate? 

Tons of celebs have put their upper two abs on display on the red carpet. I wonder if they save money on spray tans by just getting half their tummy tanned..hmm..but can this trend be transitioned to real life events and soirees? Perhaps even the upcoming company holiday party?
