Hi, we've (or really, I've) been out of the loop recently but I guess it's cause we've all been busy. And I haven't really been keeping up with fashion. :(
Anyways, for lack of a better update, here's some stuff I tried on at AX and Zara a few weeks ago.
Excuse my face. I had to (not really, I had one I could wear!) pick out a dress for my Management society's Mentoring Program High Table Dinner and being the loser that I am, I walked into AX, cause I can totally afford the stuff...I personally like the black one better. But the teal is a nice color!
Of course, since I'm getting a dress, I might as well go and buy a shirt too, using the excuse of how I have to wear a suit for presentations in class. I ended up getting the one on the left. But I really want the one on the right too. The only problem is that it's see through.
In the end, I got this dress <3. I look pregnant < / 3.
Hi tryabiggersize! It's been a while and I just wanted to let you all know that I'm alive and kicking, and still want things I can not afford. I am on urbanoutfitters.com because it's raining outside and I have nothing better to do than make myself feel worse by browsing at dresses I'll never own.
I'm talking about the exhibition that I mentioned before, The Golden Age of Couture: Paris and London 1947-1957. Sadly, photography was not allowed due to copyright issues, so I will do my best to find some of the stuff online!
Homage to Munkacsi Richard Avedon August 1957 (Coat: Pierre Cardin) The poor quality of this image does not do the original version justice!
Dovima with Elephants for America Harper's Bazaar Richard Avedon 1955 (Dress: Christian Dior) Even with two large elephants, the model steals the spotlight!
Afternoon dress for Princess Margaret Designed by Jean Desses Around 1951 Image Source: The Vintage Fashion Librarian The pleating detail in the bust is exquisite. I want this dress!
Evening Dress (Robe du Soir Longue) Designed by Jean Desses Material: Chiffon Around 1953 Image Source: The Fashion Spot There are hints of Greek elements in this dress, which would be due to Jean Desses being Greek! This is a beautiful dress but I'd prefer it in a different color.
Pérou evening dress (far right) Designed by Christian Dior 1954-55 from the autumn/winter collection, Ligne H Material: silk satin embroidered with gilt & silver metal thread Image Source: V&A Museum I couldn't find a proper image online, so this is the best I could get. This dress is quite breath-taking. It took 600 hours to complete the embroidery. Gotta give credit to Brossin de Mere, the person who did the work!
Anyways, this post doesn't really explain how great of an exhibition it was, due to my lack of photos. But the exhibition is moving on to Australia soon so if you're in Australia, you definitely need to check it out!
Badgley Mischka Spring 2010 Ready to Wear Collection I must say I was rather disappointed when I saw this collection. There are a few pieces I like, but the best look of this season in my opinion is the second dress. However, it still doesn't beat their Fall 2008 Ready to Wear Collection, which has to be my favorite of all their collections! Here are some of my old faves:
That black dress...!!
Not to forget this finale look!
So yeah, I liked the Fall 08 RTW collection a LOT more!
