Peony Lim Pt 1 - Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Weeks

I have long kept an eye on Fashion blogger and stylist Peony Lim's style, but it was at the recent SS'12 Fashion Weeks that I really fell in love with some of her outfits, all glamorous and fun...and she is just too cute! And just look at her hair! Ok, enough of that, onto the outfits:

This one is my absolute favourite, the stunning print on that Anna Sui dress just makes me smile, the red pumps, the matching bold lipstick...all demanding anyone's attention:

I loved the oversized red 'flower' pinned to her side ponytail, matched by the Vuitton Epi speedy and cute heels (the denim smock is of her own design, and available in her store):

Love the funky sunglasses and floral jacket from Stella McCartney's Resort 2011 collection:

Not a look I would try on myself, but I quite like the headscarf on Peony:

Olivia Palermo - the real Blair Waldorf Pt 5: Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Weeks

I did not come across many photos of Olivia Palermo at the SS'12 Fashion Weeks:

It's probably just me, but I must admit I did not 'feel' this outfit, I felt it was 'forced' and not the effortless elegance I usually associate with Olivia...Maybe it was the earrings? Not sure.

I like the outfit Olivia wore to Marchesa, simple and elegant...

Miroshka Pt 2 - Miroslava Duma at the Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Weeks

Little Miroshka's fun style was filled with vibrant colours during the SS'12 Fashion Weeks:

The Prada Resort dress worn by Ulyana (left) is one of my all-time favourite Prada pieces...GORGEOUS! The red coat dress worn by Miro' is just so striking, love that shade of red!


Painterly fun.

So cute!

Christopher Kane neon...

Just love that silhouette

She even makes cameo accessories look fresh and modern...

Apologies for going MIA! Winner of Peut-être magazine giveaway announced...

Aren't the little tin suitcases below too cute for words? I received one as a gift from my sister's friend K, who is just one gorgeous gal, and they're filled with little Haigh's chocolate freckles/speckles!

Apologies everyone for going MIA once again. Last weekend I traveled to Melbourne to meet up with my sisters (one flew in from London, the other from Sydney), and after a few days there we returned to my house for the rest of the week for a whirlwind few days filled with food (and 1001 celebrations for my younger sister's 30th birthday), friends and a spot of shopping (and no, I did not buy a thing!). I had brought my laptop with the intention of posting, and extending the Peut-être Magazine giveaway, but alas, I can barely remember having a moment to catch my breath! I was hoping to share some pics of the last week and a half, but I cannot find my camera cable anywhere!

Now, onto the Peut-être Magazine giveaway, congrats to i.d. for winning your very own copy of the magazine! Thank you to all who entered!

David Szeto Autumn/Winter 2011 - A Touch of Hollwood Western Glamour

Ah, David, how I've missed you...

I had been checking your website and blog for the past few months, hoping for updates...and at last! It was definitely worth the wait...I love your Hollywood Western inspired collection. Ever present are the beautiful shirring, pleats and draping that I love, feminine pieces in jerseys, wools and silk cut on the bias, moving beautifully with the wearer (and I still cannot get over how inspired the 'moving model' is on your website).

Loved the narrow shoulders and looseness around the hips in the dresses, coats and jackets. As a fan of kimonos, of course I fell head-over-heels over the floral Japanese kimono prints, and the supersized scarves were absolutely brilliant as multipurpose shawls, ponchos and wrap skirts!

I'm so glad you're back!

This is one of my favourite pieces of the collection, the draped piece can be worn belted as shown, or thrown over the shoulder, love the contrasting colours and draping!

Love the contrasting white lining and buttons, the alpaca 'fur' sleeves afford beautiful texture to this coat, and the fabric itself looks so luxurious...

I don't know which colourway I love more, this gorgeous red or the first 'grey' (purpley grey to me), I'd love this red dress with a purple/grey belt!

Love that poncho/shawl and its trimming!

Look at that brilliantly interwoven belt (under and over the draping fabric pleated by the shirring above it). LOVE THIS!

Ah, this the zip trimmed hem of this coat.

The detailing on the shoulders, neckline and hem are just beautiful...

Taylor Tomasi Hill - Queen of Accessories Pt 8: Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Weeks


Interesting use of the humble white shirt - under the Balenciaga green skirt!

Look at all those green accessories, so fresh and fun!

I like the interplay of textures here:

My favourite part about this outfit are the slouchy cool of the Ann Demeulemeester boots:

Ah, loved seeing this floral skirt make an appearance again...

And with the ever-so-cool Kate Lanphear:

black + white

How does a simple oversized white shirt and creepers (not my favourite shoe in the world) look so cool on Taylor?

This black and white blouse below was teamed with two different skirts during the recent Fashion Weeks:

The green skirt again:

Ah, this is too cool...THIRD season of Fashion Weeks that Taylor goes to her trusty Dries Van Noten b&w geometric shirt, and it was brilliantly teamed with an equally b&w YSL skirt, how cute is that pocket?

Love this B&W top below!


Another stunning Dries Van Noten shirt, the detailing on the sleeves are amazing...

Must admit I am not quite the fan of the pants below, but Taylor pulls them off:

Gorgeous portrait by The Photodiarist:

Oh yeah, she's workin' it...

Bold and soft colours

Love the simplicity of this navy sweatshirt:

Hm...perhaps I should dig out my grandmother's crochet and revamp them :

Love how Taylor toughens this otherwise floaty blush/nude feminine dress with black accessories:
