Resort 2012: Bottega Veneta

So it begins…

Showtime again! To be honest I’m not the biggest resort fan. It’s all beachy and windswept and look-at-me-with-my-tasteful-straw-hat. I’m more of a winter/stunning gown girl meself. But I have found some nice stuff in my travels.

Mmmmmm… chocolately-brown-leathery goodness. I love this colour and this look. I want a skirt/shorts this colour.

I love this shape and the cut-out look in the metallic material creates a really nice effect.

I WANTS IT. I can’t figure out whether it’s just one piece, or two layered over each other, but it is perfection.

I’m not sure why I like this, or even if I like it. I’m still figuring it out. It would look amazing on Blake Lively though.

I love the structured-corset bodice look on the dress and the soft, muted colour of the jacket. Hate the fringe on the shoes.

It’s a swimsuit that looks like a cardigan. How could I not love it?

I have always loved those colours together and I want that bag like nobody’s business.

So floaty and wispy and pretty 🙂 Love that pink.

This looks like it moves beautifully, and that’s fairly impressive for a still photograph.

I love this painty, screen-printy silk look and those colours are perfect together.

Finally, some pretty dresses! Love the shiny, ruffled black.

IF ONLY I wasn’t short and nowhere near rich enough, I would have both of these and wear them every day. Like a boss.

Fall 2011 RTW Wrap-up: Brights

The reds are my favourite, they’re so so bright, neon-red; which I’ve always loved. This is also the reason I want these shoes:

Some Fall 2011 RTW Wrap-Up Posts On the Way, But First…

Jeremy Scott.


I cannot believe that I’ve never heard of this dude, ’cause he is awesome. Pop-culture + brights + an eclectic mix of stuff. Essentially this dude is Tavi in dude-form.

I’m not certain whether I love it or hate it, but it certainly makes an impression.

I love the bright colours and the bold prints.

Not sure about the fluffy stuff…

Fall 2011 RTW: Thakoon




I would like to start out by saying that all of the comic-book-coloured plaid is amazing, and every time I see it I imagine a friend of mine saying ‘LESBIANS’ (you know who you are).




My two favourite shades of the season, all warmly wrapped up together in wonderful picnic blanket plaid-y goodness. I actually think the dress on the right is a picnic blanket.




 If one were to wear the dress on the left with the shoes on the left and the jacket on the right (if it is a jacket, I’m still not entirely sure), one would look awesome.




I clearly like the print here, as I’ve got it twice. Prefer the cut on the left, but I love the shoes on the right.

I ❤ that jacket. I’m not sure whether I love that dress or hate it, but it’s certainly getting some strong emotions from me.

Fall 2011: St John/Z Spoke/Rachel Zoe

St John

When I think St John I think little dinky suits which are worn by politicians’ wives. Or by politicians. The Emily Gilmore-type look. I was very pleasantly surprised by their fall collection.
It’s Lily Van Der Woodsen chic. Yet another example of how leopard print can be classy. I love the grey ensemble as well, especially the gloves. 

Sparkly skirt! Sparkly skirt! With leather gloves! Caitlin likey!
Z Spoke by Zac Posen

Seriously beautiful models and great simple shapes. 


 Pair pretty pink dress with pretty black jacket and we’ve got perfection.

Rachel Zoe

I hate Rachel Zoe as a person. I think she’s a massive part of perpetrating the ridiculous standards of beauty which do a great deal of harm to a lot of people. S it kind of bugs me that I love some of her line so much. I feel better when I think about how amazing some of these clothes would look on people of all shapes and sizes (and how much Ms Zoe would disapprove).

SHINY. I want the top on the right so much And the shoes. And on the left: SHINY AND BLUE!

Gorgeous colour on those pants and I think the number of camel coats I’ve been posting says something about how much I want one. 
SOOOO pretty. Military style buttons/sleeves + pouffy wee skirt + brocade = ridiculously cute.
