Lace Lovely

Reminiscient of Audrey Hepburn’s lace mask. Photographs from Chanel.

I’m just crazy over the nails and I’m going blue satin next. Had this cute moment at work when YN came up to me and identified the colour I was wearing pat-down! I do hers as well, right down to the strange names they give polishes. But I do so much with my hands, its getting harder to justify the expense, except that each time I get pretty lacquer…


Givenchy 2011

My favourite fall collection this year, actually belongs to Givenchy, which actually did something notverydifferent. Who would have known, something so alienesque could so capture my heart. Not every piece, but some of them are just breathtaking. Exclusivity and obsession.

Givenchy Fall 2011 Haute Couture – (12)


“I’ve always had a soft spot for Oscar de la Renta. He’s the king of uptown glamour. It’s a completely different aesthetic compared to mine but you gotta pay respect when respect is due. In this day and age of androgynous, genderless dressing where boys wear high heels and girls wear boy’s outfits, it’s nice to have another option from the other side where everything is glossy, magical, luxurious and very old-world aspirational.”

Staggeringly unforgettable.
