Wake up

10 very fashionable needs

During my daily surf through fashion related websites I run into the most stylish and to the point must buy guide. Style.com has the perfect fall recap. I want it all.


1. something faux
From Roland Mouret's crocodile-effect leggings to the fur-print silks at Hermès, designers were faking it all over the runways. Nobody did it better than Stella McCartney, whose animal-free cupro jacket had Beth Ditto asking, "Where can I get that?"
2. over-the-knee boots
With their staggering sex appeal, thigh boots shot to the top of Fall must-have lists. These strappy, slightly S&M hip-grazers earned Rodarte's Kate and Laura Mulleavy first prize in the high, higher, and highest stakes.

3. something sexy
Sure, designers sobered up this season, but there was a supercharged undercurrent pulsing through the best collections. Stefano Pilati's straight-out-of-a-Helmut Newton-photograph leather bustiers at Yves Saint Laurent had tongues wagging.
4. color
There's nothing like a little bit—or a lot—of hot pink to remind you that it's not all doom and gloom out there. Enter this fuchsia dress from John Galliano's Orientalist-themed Dior collection.

5. something draped
From Givenchy to Haider Ackermann to Gianfranco Ferré, it was Madeleine Vionnet's moment at the collections. And it wasn't just dresses that got the drapery treatment; witness Viktor & Rolf's attention-grabbing clutch.
6. a leather jacket
Having finessed his signature brand of tough chic for seasons now, Phi's Andreas Melbostad is the de facto leader of Fall's biker gang. No surprise then that his shrunken, short-sleeved leather motorcycle jacket is such perfection.
7. a strong-shouldered jacket
Credit for fashion's current shoulder obsession goes to Balmain's Christophe Decarnin, whose peak-sleeved blazers for Fall look destined to become every bit as coveted as Spring's hugely influential "tennis ball" jackets.
8. something surreal
Elsa Schiaparelli was a muse to many at the Fall collections, but Comme des Garçons' Rei Kawakubo went surreal in ways no one else did. How? This trompe l'oeil jacket is as wearable as it is witty.

9. a decorated leg
Bare legs made a comeback. Still, hosiery lovers have plenty to cheer about, with Doo-Ri and Zac Posen showing ornamented tights. Leave it to Miuccia Prada, though, to turn them into semiprecious commodities as she did with these bejeweled numbers at Miu Miu.
10. something studded
Any urban warrior worthy of the moniker—and the phrase got bandied about plenty this season—needs some studs in her wardrobe. Alexander Wang is the tough chick's go-to guy for his high-waisted cigarette pants with metal rivet tuxedo stripes


Hair gone wild

Bright and Shiny

How about adding some color in your outfit and start feeling the summer, take a look:

(by the way Leighton has the perfect take on the sheer trend)

Leighton + Kate = fuchsia madness

As I'm not in the US and we are still doing summer here I'm wishing for some cold



Big craving

So I'm not sure this is the best way to start but i been longing for some leather leggings and it seems like Carmen P. (credits Altamira) has mastered the look:

isn't her look screaming "i don't care"?

and how about a leather jacket as well?

note: we are not wearing both items at the same time

The one

My first. This will obviously be about fashion and style in general, stay in for outfit inspiration, fashion editorials, great clothes, makeup wonders, and some other stylish things.

get your senses ready...
