I didn't want to get it because it made me look about 3 years old, but my friends said I looked Amish. And then I saw this floral top. I bought it, but got rid of the blue ribbon thing and am going to wear it as a dress, but its too short, so I'll wear tights underneath and a long cardigan over.
So now that is the last floral thing I'm going to buy... and I'll move on to another trend. not sure which one though, any suggestions? btw, I got the top from Valley Girl, its this cheap Australian shop that we used to buy clothes from when we were about 14, but my friends still shop there now, although no one likes to admit it.

Remember when silky kimono tops were really in? Aaaages ago. I noticed a teeny tiny little trend going on from the Spring shows, with Chinese collars. High necks, button details and puffy cap sleeves. I think it will still be a while before Asian is in again.
So by now everyone knows this is the girl who made Aggyness very angry by taking her nice old Burberry contract, but he fashion sense isn't bad either. Rosie Hungtington-Whiteley'a not edgy like Freja or anyone, but I like the way she wears her full length dresses.

What a lucky dog, getting a backstage pass to a fashion show and meeting Iekeliene Stange. Unfortunately I can't remember where I got the photo from, and don't know what show it is.

“The collection features some of my signature lace, embroidery and silk printed fabrics which have been intricately designed to make women feel they can experience the exclusiveness of one of my garments” - Collette Dinnigan.
The main problem was that the shoulders were extremely high, and the bust huge even in the smallest size... even makes the models bust bigger. This is not nessecarily a good thing.
It looks way better worn as a top, I think!
The other dress I tried on. This was even more annoying because the backless back was too large and couldnt fit around my back, and then the zip got stuck. My friend and I couldn't decide if the beaded stones were tacky or cool in a sort of ancient Roman way.
So argh, very annoying. It's a bit strange, because clothes usually fit me pretty well in the torso, and they didn't fit my friend either. That's the problem with diffusion lines... they're cheaper but they don't fit as well as a ready to wear piece!

Their spring/summer collection looks like a mix of the ss08 collections from Rag &Bone, Proenza Schouler and Chloe (note the Chloe shoes in the bottom right).

Heehee, those Maison Martin Margiela shoes are sort of the platform peep toe Louboutin's arch enemy. Rachel Bilson tried them out and looked gorgeous, but some thought otherwise and likened them to Paris Hilton's long, webby feet.

I don't care if people say JPG 'was inspired by' Alexander McQueen s/s for his couture show, he perfected the whole Bug's Life/Creature Comforts thing. Black and blue is genius, that dress was like wearable a ulysses butterfly and Coco does a great praying mantis!

This dressing table is way bigger than my other one so I dump all my ornaments, jewelry, makeup and perfume. I love my blue chair. I think I have a chair fetish.
And the dress!! I bought it last week at a thrift store and cut a big chunk off the skirt, it even looks vaguely Balenciagaesque now because of the freaky shoulders, and that's without the shoulder pads in! More pics of the dress to come soon!
