I took out FOUR wisdom teeth on Tuesday (you would know if you follow me on snapchat) and I am currently in recovery. Taking out your wisdom not only means pain but also hunger and all I can think about is a good piece of avocado toast! But I am glad that I have the finale of London fashion week and the Brit Awards to alleviate my boredom. I would say that I have long been an admirer of their carefree and eccentric street style and their ability to poke fun and not take themselves too seriously. With that said, today I want to share with you a look that I have been seeing a lot outside both London and New York involving some fur accents.
Back in September I rocked this midi suede fringe skirt once and never really got to wear it again. A super hot item last year, I read that it was time to retire the dramatic fringe for 2016. However, I still see people rocking it on social media and some outlets even say that it is here to stay. I guess depending on how dramatic the fringe is, a good quality fringe jacket or skirt will probably stay for at least another season. If it was up to me , fringe would be a forever staple like a t-shirt or a pair of jeans because I just absolutely adore this style. So as we watch the new runway shows in London Fashion Week, let me take you back to AW 15 and revisit an old favourite of mine.
New York Fashion Week is ending today and I have been enjoying all the shows via my favourite bloggers on Snapchat. It took me awhile to get on the Snapchat bandwagon but now I am totally hooked and me and my girlfriend have been obsessing with all the filters and behind the scene access to the shows. My favourite has been Marchesa (ethereal as always), Michael Kors (Oh the feather details!), Anna Sui (psychedelic 60's) and the finale of NYFW with Ralph Lauren (love the neutrals) and Calvin Klein (super edgy). I also love the setup with Thom Browne and the presentation of Mansur Gavriel and Brother Vellies. What sets New York apart is that it showcases designers from all ends of the spectrum from street, contemporary to Oscar worthy dresses. I feel as if the shows are more fun and vibrant and the show-goers seems to have a good time watching despite the painstaking cold weather in the East Coast. I hope one day I would be there to suffer the cold and sit front row to admire all the sparkling clothes and accessories. Sigh.. A girl can dream right? But for now lets go back to reality and talk about an important winter essential- the turtleneck.
In January, I did a review on the Gwen Stefani x Urban Decay eyeshadow palette and raved about the lipstick samples that came along with the palette. I was so impressed with their creamy, pigmented and velvety texture that I decided to get a few when the entire collection came out. With an array of reds, a neutral and a vibrant magenta purple to choose from, you have no excuse but to bring out your inner Gwen and rock her signature bold lip.
Valentine’s Day always gives the perfect excuse to dress up and head out for a fanciful night in town (1). Whether it is with your significant other or even a group of friends, dressing for the Day of Love can be fun but sometimes limited to obvious colours or silhouettes. Unlike my last post where I celebrated Chinese Lunar New Year with a dress that deviated from the traditional red, I wanted to stay with the basics for Valentine's but shake it up with a feathery twist.
