Maison Martin Margiela H&M LookBook

Following the last few strong and successful collaborations, H&M and Maison Martin Margiela will hit stores November 15th, 2012.

So excited to present to you guys the look book from vogue.co.uk.

This collection will stay true to what this French Fashion house is known for, deconstructed shapes and exaggerated proportions.

Ladies can expect oversized masculine jackets, loose-fitting trousers, outerwear folded origami-style and dresses that drape loosely across the body.

My particular favourite is this amazing red dress.

So much drama, and the waist can be easily defined with a belt.

This line will grab attention with detail not prints.

Check out these cute glove bags and clear heel foot wear.

I also love these over sized masculine lines. I love being swallowed up by clothes sometimes, make me feel so protected.

But they will have tailored pieces too just to contrast everything.

The menswear is equally as covetable, with sharply-cut tailoring and coats - one that comes in white and features shearling detailing and another in two-tone grey and brown check.

Chanel SS2013 Beach Hula Hoop Bag


SHOPtalk at shopbop.com

Paris Fashion week is in full swing! Every year, this is when the fashion heavy hitters come out to play.

I am personally the most excited about Chanel! Lo and behold, Karl Lagerfeld delivers. I am beginning to think that guy does not know how to disappoint.

Check here for the full collection.

What stopped my heart this time is this bag!

The Hula Hoop Beach bag in white.

Look at how amazing it is! I have never seen anything like this. Karl Largerfeld, you have my heart forever.

This is totally a Poser purse! I would take it anywhere and everywhere with me.

And I will take that swimsuit as well. I like how the whole two piece illusion is being utilized in that piece. It helps the whole bikini stay in place but at the same time, it offers the fun feel of wearing a tankini.

If the purse is a little too big and impractical to for everyday use, he also did a mini version.

As well, some new material is introduced in a fabulous way as reflected by this green acrylic clutch.

Can't wait to see how these designs will trickle down to the shelves in their ready to wear versions. For a great source and reference guide on current ready to wear Chanel purses, check out Spotted Fashion's reference guide.

I for one, will take that beach bag exactly as is!

Parsons Student Show Round-up Round-up

Happy humpday everyone. On this typically grey Vancouver Wednesday, I would like to share with you some of my favourite pieces from the Parsons Student Fashion Show.

Fashionista.com rounded up their favourite looks at the Parsons Student Fashion Show, and I rounded-up their round-up.

Hence the two round-ups in the post title. I like repetition, but always with a purpose.

Let's start this thing off with a bang shall we?

This attention grabbing impractical but oh so magical piece is by Alex Perez Castells.

Alex Perez Castells women's wear for Parsons Student Grad Show, Parsons Student Fashion Show,  nude sheer dress with embroidered details and red tassle fringe, Statement Dress, Red fringe dress

To my best ability, I describe it as a sheer statement dress with embroidered detail and red tassel fringe. As impractical as it is, I secretly want to wear this to my upcoming work gala, in a more modest way of course.

Next, we shift our gears to a much more neutral speed. Though, not much less statement making.

Nina Na Ni women's wear for Parsons Student Grad Show, Parsons Student Fashion Show 2012, flowy silk maxi kimono and fur hand warmer, Silk kimono, Silk maxi, Olden day chinese inspired, Fashion Show

This piece is by Nina Na Ni. Even before I saw that she was Chinese I knew this has to have been inspired by Imperial olden day Chinese fashion. I have always admired the way they dress, glad to see it being brought to the present. That fur cuff just completely finished it off for me.

Sticking with the neutral tones but slightly ramping up the speed comes this light grey power suite.

Mary Beth Bachand women's wear for Parsons Student Grad Show, Parsons Student Fashion show 2012, grey power suite with tassled chain mail like top, Grey Power Suit, Power Suit

Work appropriate? I'd think so. Mary Beth Bachand's clean tailoring and attention to detail is amazing. This outfit can so easily be transitioned from day to night with the simple removal of the jacket. I can't even really count all the detailed elements put into that top. So delicate yet it looks so edgy.

This next dress I would absolutely wear in a heart beat, back round bubble included.

Danielle Frankel women's wear for Parsons Student Grad Show, Parsons Student Fashion Show 2012, Grey sheer amazingly detailed dress

Danielle Frankel is the mastermind behind this one. Perhaps I used up my descriptive words of being detailed for the last piece. But really, I dare you to take account all the elements in this dress.

I really would wear this as is, back bubble included.

This next one is simple yet elegant, an everyday dress almost.

Dwarmis Concepcion women's wear for Parsons Student Grad Show, Parsons Student Fashion Show 2012, peplumish grey chiffon dress

This Dwarmis Concepcion (awesome name award goes to...) dress is so on point. The first layer almost creates a slight peplum that adds an extra dimension of flirtiness. It looks like it would fit amazingly and flatter any figure.

Now we venture into LBD territory.

First, this all consuming maxi by Vivian Jiywon Lee. I love the leafy element on top. It looks as if the leaves are crawling on your skin alone.

The rest of the dress is multi-dimensional and flows amazingly.

Vivian Jiywon Lee women's wear for Parsons Student Grad Show, Parsons Student Fashion Show 2012,  black chiffon maxi with sheer leaf detail on top

Then I would like to move into another maxi dress, this time, a completely different silhouette.

Jin Kay Jin Woo Kim women's wear for Parsons Student Grad Show, Parsons Student Fashion Show 2012, Black maxi evening gown with satin lapel and chiffon cape

Another Korean designer, Jin Kay Jin Woo Kim created this chic and sophisticated mermaidesque gown.

I love the over length train that needs to be held up. Though not terribly practical, would make an interested conversation piece. I would try to attach it to a bangle and wear it on my wrist. Or just let it flow beside me and walk as if I am two persons wide.

This final little black dress is my favourite of the black dresses.

Jacques Zhang women's wear for Parsons Student Grad Show, Parsons Student Fashion Show,  little black cut out dress

Can we say negative space? Jacques Zhang really took the cutout trend to a whole new level. What is more amazing than making your skin part of the garment? It is tastefully done. It's not at all too provocative even though large portions of the skin is visible. I guess when it comes to matters of appropriateness, location location location also applies when it comes to clothing.

Since I came in with a bang, why not go out with one as well.

Bach Mai women's wear for Parsons Student Grad Show, Parsons Student Fashion Show 2012, blue silk top orange high waisted cape skirt grey gloves and coral thigh high caged platforms

This is what I call a colour blocking spring outfit. It has everything! Bach Mai's ingenious vision is expertly represented in this seemingly clashy ensemble. But au contraire, all these elements blends seamlessly. I would dress in this exact way, the high-waisted, high crotch orange high-low cape maxi is the Coup de grĂ¢ce and pair with those platform coral cage heels? To Die For!

I would love to own any of these pieces, needless to say. It pleases me that our fashion future is looking fierce and bright and exuberant.

Luck be a Versace

Trolling does pay off!!

Side note, Happy American Thanksgiving our neighbours down south.

I was somewhat disappointed after the 19th when all I could get were these babies.

In the end I decided not to keep them. Small chance I will be wearing them very often.

As luck would have it, yesterday turned out to be a great day!

As luck would have it again, yesterday was also my day off.
After I got dressed and posed for pictures thrice, I was ready to head out the door.

Outfit of the day

Vintage silver embroidered Noidiasolo shirt, made in Italy. From Salvation Army Thrift Store, New West Location



Forever21 leopard leggings. More leggings can be found here

Black faux shearling boots, similar ones can be found here

I absolutely love this top! It overwhelmed me the first time I put it on, but it quickly grew on me. I also have a incredibly difficult time refusing a thrift find.

Bows make me so happy

Since it is cold out, I donned on my down jacket and some awesome ear muffs, I was really ready to head out the door.

Flowers tickle my soul, especially when they can also keep my ears warm


The stroll to H&M was quite nice. The brisk air was nice to breath in. I did not mind it at all since my ears are kept very cozy.

I really did have the intentions to just do the refund. Until...

The next moments blurred really. I was over taken by excitement!! I think I tried on some heels and they kinda of killed my feet. But maybe I should just show you.

There she is, a thing of beauty.  The only item on my want list from the previous post I was able to get my hands on. I can't believe someone would return this. And I cannot believe it didn't get snatched up yet!
Let's see a family photo of my haul.
