Oh My.

Karen's pair on WhereDidUGetThat

Fashion Chalet

Hot dang this is a sexy shoe!
Jessica Simpson's Dany Platform.
Jessica Simpson - really? Really?
I want this shoe, and I want it now.


Aldo SS2010 Campaign - Jessica Stam by Terry Richardson
As much as I love a sultry sexy campaign,
I can't resist a fun shoot with a really kitsch shiny leopard in it.
The pics, for me, don't really showcase Aldo's Spring Collection, but I'm ok with that.
The gold sequin jacket and the leopard are enough for me.

Twist and Shout

Alexander Wang Spring 2010
My hair is long, but I need it that teensy bit longer so I can have a rocking sexy messy plait like the models from A.Wang.
Talk about hair lust!

Stud Muffin

I'm really keen to inject a bit of stud action into my wardrobe now.
Add a bit of texture and edginess to my somewhat simple closet.
And because, well, deep down - I'm a real bad ass.
Ya right.

Second-Hand Lovely Jubblies

A silky type blouse.
It's a bit big, but nothing that a little waist belt can't fix.
I really should've ironed it before I snapped it.
Oh well.

This paisley blouse was R8.00.
R8 - for my foreign readers - is the equivalent to $1.
I don't even know what you can buy with R8.
Or $1.
I took a little drive up to the Hospice Shop in Hillcrest today.
Look at all my lovely goodies!
They were ridiculously light on my pocket too, so I am indeed a happy chappy!
Do you see the heart shaped clothes bundle in the last snap?
That's how happy I am.
I threw my treats on the floor and tossed them into a heart shape.

Another M.T.

Another score for the great Mario Testino.
Naomi Campbell, 1994 Glamour France

Happy Naomi is so much better than uber-bitch Naomi.

Kate Moss for Longchamp.
Hot mamma.
Killer clutch in that first shot too.

A. Wang

I kind of wish Alexander Wang's creations weren't so damn wearable and gorgeous!
Cos then I wouldn't be feeling unfulfilled and in need of at least one item from the SS2010.
That leather clutch thingy? Hello!!
This post is overdue by a couple of months I knoooow, but Wang is slowly creeping up the favourites list here, yes sir...

I'm so saddened to hear of the passing of one of fashion's most talented individuals.
It goes without saying that Alexander McQueen will of course be leaving an immense void in the industry.
What a creative genius, what a visionary!
Very sad, sad news.

Adorn Me

This online fantasy shopping must stop soon!
Look at what I 'bought' on the Fashionology site just a wee bit earlier.
Seriously though, who would deny themselves those armour rings?
I've been longing for one for so long now!
They're rather affordable too sooooo...
perhaps this fantasy shmantasy business will turn into a reality buy?
(And we all know those are the best kind of buys around!)
Let's hope.

Teacups and Whiskers

My nail polish is chipping and it looks kind of trashy.

Better go take care of it.

Oh, how I've let myself go!

All we hear is Radio GAGA

I never thought I would be a fan.

But God dammit she is just too fabulous not to be!

I'll admit her music isn't her drawing point - it's the outrageous outfits and the way she rocks a pair of Alexander McQueen's.

She's a bit of a freak, we all know that, but she's just fabulous to watch.

I just had a quick fantasy shop around Urban Outfitters, picking out my favourites above.
Aaaah, there's so much fun in adding everything to your basket and taking them as far as the checkout, and for a couple of minutes, pretending it's all yours!
The minutes after you realise it was all a game?
Well, those minutes aren't as fun.

Super Mario Brother

Just a teeny-tiny handful of my favourite Mario Testino shots.

Monday, 1 February 2010


Some snaps from the weekend.
Monochromatic outfits, cheap(ish) drinks at fancy hotels, sunshine, pub lunches, navy coloured nails, frozen coffees and movie with salty popcorn.
(Not all photographed, as I'm sure you noticed)
