Rookie No More

Tavi Gevinson

It amazes me that she's only 15! 
I found these pictures of the one and only Tavi Gevinson while she was attending last weeks New York Fashion Week. Tavi looks all grown up! Her style evolving as she grows but staying true to her personality. Tavi is considered a veteran in the fashion arena rubbing shoulders with the elite such as Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs, and the Mulleavy sisters from Rodarte. Her resume is quite impressive for someone who hasn't even finished high school. From regularly posting her thoughts on her blog Style Rookie to becoming founder & editor-in-chief of her own online magazine Rookie. She's even lent her voice to upcoming animation film Cadaver with Christopher Lloyd and Kathy bates. Wherever does she find the time? This is one teen who truly is comfortable in her own skin. A shining example!

Industrial Chic

Dream Rooms

I bought my 2 bedroom apartment two years ago and I find myself being more drawn to interior style rather than wearable style. This might be because my wardrobe is overflowing and all I can do now is decorate my home. After all your home is also a reflection of your personal style. So these days I find myself in homeware stores going gaga over furniture, nic nacs, and paint colour! I even find myself on a Friday night with a glass of wine watching renovation shows! 

Since I've bought my place I've redone my kitchen and courtyard (I promise I'll post some pictures up soon). Next on the DIY project is the upstairs bathrooms. But I simply can't decide how to style it. Flavour of the month is Industrial Chic - which I think I might start restyling the rest of the apartment as well. How cute are these  as great inspirational start points.

Hmm I think I'm also a huge fan of teal! That settles it, the bathrooms will be white, grey and teal!

I Think I Saw A Puddy Cat

New York Fashion Week

Yep, it's New York Fashion Week right now, which means street style at its best, despite the cold. Though this type of weather does bring out the best in layering options. 

While flipping through the numerous photographs seen from one blog post to another; site to site; there is one trend, nay, one piece that I keep seeing worn by some of my favourite trend setters:
The Opening Ceremony x Glamour kitty cat sweater (available in black or white). This cute little piece isn't even available yet to buy - NOT UNTIL TOMORROW - FEBRUARY 15, 2012!! So get ready! I personally would want one in black; and with it only being $99 I think I just might get in line.

Tribute To Elie

Elie Saab

It is award season for the glitterati; red carpet fashion is in full swing. It also happens to be wedding season again in my little world, with another dear frien
d getting married in March. Which means couture couture couture! So in the spirit of jaw dropping gorgeous gowns I thought what better way to share with you my favourite pieces from renowned fashion house: Elie Saab

The Spring Summer 2012 collection was recently shown, and as each season approaches (especially this one) I am left amazed once again. Let's get lost in the beauty, the delicate detailing, and the divine privilege of being a woman!

I know it's not a gown but a jump suit - but it's still Elie Saab.
