Miroshka Pt 4: Miroslava Duma at the Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Weeks

When asked to described her style in 3 words, Miroslava used 'quirky eclectic experimental', it sure is, and she seems to have a ball doing so, with bold colours,  Since having her now 2 year old son, she now appreciates flat shoes, hurray, good to see I'm not alone!


On to exciting news, I'd like to thank all of you who entered the Shopbop giveaway.  A winner was randomly selected and I am about to email you, Kalin

Congratulations on winning your $100 Shopbop Gift Certificate!

Songspiration: Smash - Stand

Since I am currently obsessed with this song, I thought I'd share it here.

Is anyone out there a 'Smash' fan? My sister told me about this TV show months ago, and being a huge musical fan, I couldn't wait to watch it for myself.  Ever since watching the first season's finale, I promptly hopped on the computer and have been playing this song over and over.  It is just so beautiful, the melody, the actor's voices, the choir, and the lyrics.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do:

What do you do when you’ve done all you can  
And it seems like you can’t make it through  
And what do you say when your friends turn away
  You’re alone  
Tell me what do you give  
When you’ve given your all  
And it seems like you can’t make it through  
Well you just stand when there’s nothing left to do  
You just stand  
Watch the Lord see you through  
Yes after you’ve done all you can  
You just stand  
Tell me what do you give when you’ve given your all  
and it seems like you can’t make it through 
Well you just stand when there’s nothing left to do  
You just stand  
Watch the Lord see you through  
Yes after you’ve done all you can  
You just stand  
You stand and be sure and be not entangled in bondage again  
Stand and endure 
(God has a purpose) God has a plan  
Tell me what do you do when you’ve done all you can 
and it seems like you can’t make it through  
Through the storm 
through the rain 
through the hurt  
and through the pain  
I’ll hold on  
I’ll be strong 
God will step in  
It won’t be long  
After you’ve done all you can, you just stand

Off topic:

Don't forget, you only until the end of next Monday to enter the $100 Shopbop giveaway!

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

Street Style at the Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Weeks - Stripes

As you may know, I admitted early on that I am a humungous fan of stripes (especially a la marinière). Following on from the last Street Style post(s) on stripes being worn during Fashion Weeks, it was great seeing them again during the Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Weeks: 

Those Maison Michel lace bunny ears are just too cute! (shame Lil' J#1 won't be sporting those anytime soon)
Check out the Rag & Bone Newbury boots! Still loving my pair!
n.b. The 'compilation' photos of striped outfits are from The Sartorialist, and were not necessarily taken during the Fashion Weeks. 

Thanks to all who have entered the $100 Shopbop giveaway!

 If you haven't already, you still have until Monday 29th of October to do so HERE

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Yasmin Sewell - The Girl from Oz Pt 7 (at the SS'13 Fashion Weeks)

The new Blogger continues to exasperate me, and is seriously impeding my ability to post! I must be the only technically challenged blogger out there, and I am not usually that technically challenged!  Anyway, I was already in awe of Yasmin Sewell's style, but am more so now that she is a new mom.  One of my favourite looks she wore is that billowy green blouse, absolutely stunning!

Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 Pt 1: Dries Van Noten

The new Blogger is still driving me nuts, apologies for the bad layout of the pics below.  Apologies also for going MIA for so long.  I have finally 'surface' from my work for Issue 5 of Peut-Etre, and am incredibly excited about it, can't wait to share more with you all when the time comes!  At last...I get to post about Dries' SS'13 collection.  

Plaid! Ok, so I must admit I am a big closet plaid fan...and Dries managed to make this mannish fabric so ultra feminine! Master of mixology, he mixed the prints up brilliantly! Some pieces I liked more for the fabric or print rather than the shape, and vice-versa. Needless to say, I absolutely LOVED this collection!
