Levi's

Malboro

Sorry for the duper rushed outfit! I was running uber late (rushed as hell apptly) for training.

Jasmine Di Milo

As we all know, Jasmine Di Milo has recently closed down her fashion line, prefering to focus on interests outside of fashion. I understand her, but I can't say I'm happy about it.
Jasmine gave us some beautiful collections, her pieces appealed to many different women. In my opinion, this because she offered quirkiness, but never forgo the glamor.
Jasmine Di Milo didn't get half the coverage I would have like her to, and I'll sorely miss her.

KATE'S LAST CRUSADE

images from Kate Moss' last collection for TOPSHOP just released, and she doesn't look too happy about it! not sure if she's sad that their relationship is over, or if she's underwhelmed with the clothes. yeah, not sure.

the collection will be released in stores on Nov. 2, and to gain a little more publicity for the occasion, topshop.com is posting pictures of Kate wearing one piece from the collection each day up to to the release date, appropriately called 7 Days of Kate. today is cape day.












what do YOU think of the collection?

that little grey sweater

activewear as ready-to-wear has been very apparent the last few seasons. we've seen slouchy sweatpants replacing leggings, heels have rubber spike soles for better walking traction, striped over-the-knee tube socks are slightly sexy now (thanks to the heels-with-socks trend), and then there's my favorite – the ubiquitous grey crew neck sweatshirt.

what was considered a raggedy, warm sweater you wear to sleep has now become the go-to staple to dress down a too-fancy look. the way that it's not form-fitting, the way it slouches, the way it fits just like your man's but better, the way the grey just goes with just about everything in your closet – this understated piece has infinite possibilities.

wear it with sequins, pair it with leather shorts. pile on chunky, sparkly necklaces, while you roll up the sleeves. rock it long as a mini dress over your favorite colored stockings, or cropped with high-waisted trousers or a maxi skirt.

if i can wear my Cheap Monday crew every day, i would. ..with black liquid leggings and any one of my booties/wedges. i'm a sucker for comfortwear.

some photos just to give you some ideas:

Outfit of the Day: When It's All About The Vintage

Yves Saint Laurent Bracelet (as this piece is only from 2004, I'm not sure if it's not just plain old, but too beautiful and too in tune with my mood to be forgone).

Miu Miu Shoes

Elsa Schiapparelli Bag (1940s)
Gianni Versace Dress (1980s)

Technology in style...
