Emma Watson..BORING?



Miss E claimed to French ELLE that she thought her style was boring…is this girl for real? I am more than happy to take some of her drab clothes then…

Elie Saab Spring 2012 Couture.

Elie Saab never disappoints. He is all about delicate sparkle, top to toe lace and bows galour. The epitome of femininity. You know not to expect anything avant guarde but instead, all that is pretty. His cuts are always on trend but classic enough to never date, and this Spring 2012 Couture line does exactly that. The palate is soft and dreamy. Snow whites alongside apricots and soft candy pinks. He designs for the girliest girls that still want to look like sex kittens.

Some Sparkle...

Dessert Party..

Its a little early in the year to be thinking about a joint birthday party with my hubby as we are June & July babies, but I am just so excited to have decided to have a dessert only party. 

I am a real chocoholic, and my husband is a candy feign. So really, its ridiculous that we haven't had one before. 

A few years ago, on twitter, I discovered Amy Atlas, the amazing event planner that creates the most incredible dessert tables. So decorative inspiration won't be difficult..but how to chose a reasonable size menu, culling the endless list of treats I have come up with is going to be the real task! 

I will be sure to keep you posted on all my sugary plans,

Being the Gemini that I am, I have such a broad & varying sense of style. I can go from ultra girly frills and lace, to rocking biker jackets, to a wholesome Ralph Lauren shirt.

But one love that has stood the test of time has been BAMBOO.

It started with Tom Ford @ Gucci. It was all about the accessories. The amazing tied up shoes with a metallic bamboo heel that I still pine over  that were paired with really rich & luxurious looking bags.

And then, the bamboo obsession morphed into the interiors…




Absolutely LOVE the bamboo flatware..I NEED to buy a set STAT!







I think just one piece of bamboo would look fantastic in my flat, but how to choose!?!

Happy Friday!

Golden Globes 2012

It's difficult not to get a tad excited for an event that is so majorly focused on gowns and jewels. The Golden Globes 2012, have once again been thrilling for fashion lovers alike.

I found myself refreshing pages online for recently viewed celebs on the red carpet.

Once again, there were great triumphs & tragedies. But in keeping with my years positive resolutions, I have decided to show some of my favourite looks.

Amber Riley from Glee looked stunning in her strapless gown. No doubt it would be difficult amongst Hollywood's slim celebs but she is really holding her own & looks amazing.

Doesn't get much better than Ronney Mara in Nina Ricci, I am such a fan of what Peter Copping is doing there. This is just another of his amazing designs.And credit to Mara who wears in so stylishly, it's not easy to pull off something with a tulle-d bottom & bandage strapping. Its the simple hair & barely their makeup..amazing!

Gorgeous in The Descendants & stunning on the red carpet. What a gorgeous young girl & a beautifully sparkling gown. Love!

Never really a Swinton fan. Androgonistic looks aren't my thing. But I love the colour on her, the jacket with the billowy skirt is a great look, not too masculine & not too girly.

Emma Stone is one of my favourites. I'm always interested to see what she is doning. And this time, she hasnt disappointed me either. I love the strong colour, the dark eyes.

Evan Rachel Wood's dress has really had some mixed reviews. I loved it. I found it so whimsical and almost reminiscent of Marion Cotillard in Gaultier, Oscars 2008.

Natalie's dress is all about the colour, which is just beautiful on her. Also very Grace Kelly, you can't go wrong with that can you?

Last and most definitely not least. Zooey Deschanel! I have left my best dressed until last. Its with her cute little retro style that makes seeing her in a custom Prada that gives it that extra wow factor. I love that ow-so-now neckline, the beautiful beading and simple silk skirt. The hair and makeup is simple but flawlessly done & allows the dress to take a little more centre stage. This makes me excited to see what she will wear next time...also did you see her cute nails? It's a little bit of Zooey's quirkiness shining through..check it out on Instagram!    

Waiting for the Oscars..
