Animal Instinct

No, I’m not talking about prints, but actual animals on clothing! What did you think of the Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci F/W 11 menswear collection? I love that Rottweiler sweatshirt that Liv Tyler wore to the Givenchy show in Paris.

Anyway. I saw that Balenciaga also had a dog portrait on one of its pieces in the F/W 11 womenswear collection too.

So what’s a girl to do? How does this tee compare? Too weird?

Or I could just save up $440 and fight off the skinny boys for the Givenchy version. :P

Swimsuits? Go to Australia.

My poor travel buddy - how I dragged her to very shop in Sydney, Australia looking for the best of the best of Australian fashion. She knew how much I coveted Zimmermann clothing.

Once we, I mean, I located the Zimmermann store, I simply marveled at all the wonderful, artfully designed pieces. The swimwear - one-pieces and two pieces - had beautiful prints; clearly, this is not your mother’s 80s swimwear. Well, Zimmermann did use an 80s swimwear staple in its collection - the monokini - to its advantage. Never did the monokini look so good.

Anyway, check out the this collection from Zimmermann. Trust, you will want one a piece for yourself.

I think one-piece swimsuits are sexy.

It’s true! I do like one-piece swimsuits. Modesty aside, I find maillots quite sexy. A specific cut here and there reveals more than a skimpy bikini. I’m all about the subversive. ;)

How to create a dream

Coco Chanel was the ultimate innovator and trendsetter and had a discerning eye for practicality. But you all know this. Marvel at the craftsmanship that dedicated to assembling the most iconic bag since 1955.

Liu Wen as an Urban Cowgirl. I think the Southwest is beautiful, but with Liu Wen in it? Even more so.

So much pretty color. I would love to rock any of these looks (maybe except orange - doesn’t look good on my skin) anytime.
