SHEER BLACK

Hey lovelies! Sorry I haven't updated in what seems like foreverrrrr but I've been extremely busy prepping for Montreal Fashion Week! I leave on Wednesday and I probably won't be able to update until Sunday so I'll leave you with my current wishlist: clean tailored pieces, sheer bodysuits, and black, black, black.

I've been obsessing over lace and sheer anything, specifically body suits and body stockings (think Ruffian Fall 2009 RTW). I also desperately need a new pair of beautifully structured black peg pants and more loose fit blazers. Pictured above is also my fav pair of YSL pumps, gold chains which are my number one go-to accessory, nerd glasses (I just bought yet another adorable pair yesterday) and of course, my signature lip color!

Top (L to R): Stella McCartney Louise dancing bodysuit, 3.1 Phillip Lim peg leg pants, nerd glasses, and McQ by Alexander McQueen black tuxedo jacket.
Bottom (L to R): Stephen Dweck chain bracelet, Dame Edna for MAC Cosmetics lipstick in "Gladiola", and YSL Tribute pumps.

I promise tons of fashion-filled pics from my trip to Montreal when I get home. Hope you all have a fabulous week!

  5. I gotta say, I usually only like one or two things from collections bloggers make like this. But I adore absolutely everything here.

    (and p.s. if you are willing to live with the knockoffs, a shoe brand in Aus does a VERY good imitation of the YSLS and they offer international shipping too)

    any shoe that can make me look six feet tall is fine by me, really .

  18. That is one hot outfit, you little minx! Prepping for Montreal Fashion Week eh? What you doing there??? Cheers for stopping by my blog - loving yours! (P.S. 'more' fashion designer friends? You DO have to introduce me ;))

    ReplyDelete
  19. ...ha ha. School-boy error. I just read further down your blog and noticed that YOU are the fashion designer :) Your dress is beautiful - I love the contrast between the structured shoulders and form of the dress, against the delicate floral embellishments. All the best Cx
