I see red.


There was lots of red in the street style at Milan fashion week this past week, so here is three of my favourites. Red is classic, it suits just about everyone, brings a pop of colour to every outfit and generally you can’t go wrong with red! My two favourites are the red skirts, the length is so lady-like and the lace is gorgeous! Red is the colour of the week, I just bought a beautiful red clutch – love!


Three’s a crowd.

In the world of fashion there are three women, who, for the past few years have all been, at times, the queen of fashion. As the photographers gather around the fashion shows, during the numerous fashion weeks every season, they are all after the latest shot of Anna Dello Russo, Carine Roitfield and Giovana Battaglia. They are the fashion forward editors, directors and stylists that although older than some of the other sort-after street fashion objects, they always manage to stand out and command the attention of the photographers. Dello Russo and Roitfield are veterans of the fashion world, Roitfield’s pin-straight hair and piercing eyes are a regular fixture at fashion weeks, while Roitfields unusual head-pieces and body-baring outfits are almost another fashion show in themselves. Battaglia is still a long-standing member of the fashion squad, but newer than her two counter-parts, she also happens to be dating Roitfield’s son, Vladmir, she is also a former model, thus making her perfect for showing of the latest fashion must-haves. So of the three who is the dominant one, who wears the biggest style must-haves, who demands the most attention? All three, each in their own way, seems to be on top at some time.

Best hair and make-up of NYFW: Rodarte.

The beauty looks of NYFW were all stunning, each unique and inspiring, but the hands-down winner for me was Rodarte. The look was very simple, romantic and at the same time unique and individual. This only added to the stunning collection from Rodarte. The faux bob is definitely a new hairstyle trend to try out soon (star hair accessories optional).


Mary Katrantzou.

For those of you who wish you could afford Mark Katrantzou’s latest collection right of the runway, but have sadly had to deny yourself this pleasure as the price tag is slightly too high, you need not despair. Who else could save the day in this situation but Topshop? As of February the 17th, Mary K’s collection with Topshop will be available online and in-stores. The trademark prints and silhouettes are all there, but the price tags are down from her the normal five digits, with her dresses in the three digits, but other pieces starting at about $80 (Australian dollars). Although for me, Topshop is a trip to Melbourne away, I will most definitely be online scoping out which Mary K dress will be my next fashion purchase. When a high-end designer collaborates with a company that sells lower priced pieces, I get so excited. My excitement isn’t just because it gives me the chance to look as though I’m wearing designer pieces (but at half the cost), but because I think it shows that the designer finds more joy in their work than the money, clothes say so much about a person, who they are, where they come from, but although everyone has style  not everyone has a huge bank account to fund their fashion obsession, hence my joy at Mary K’s Topshop collection. Happy shopping!

My computer decided to have a little episode and not upload the pictures into my last post properly, so here are the two I didn’t include in the previous post.
