Klat_Candela_Novembre_04

The November Candle. Well, that’s the literal translation of her name. Married to Italian architect, Fabio Novembre, Candela is a self-proclaimed vintage lover, part-time model and full-time mom. She is one of Grazia Italia’s ‘It Girls‘ and as of today, inducted into my Eurotrash People blog of fame.

Givenchy Antigona bag alligator tommy ton

One of the highlights of Toronto Fashion Week this season was ogling The Parsons Reject‘s accessories every day, and trying to figure out ways to distract her so as to five finger discount that Givenchy. But I guess a picture’s worth a thousand dollars, in this case. Cheetah spots and alligator skin. I see a red sole peeking out from under her shoes, too. Could they be Louboutin? And of course her super luxe accessories juxtapose her ripped boyfriend jeans, à la Eurotrash. Thanks, Cassandra, for keeping the street style really unattainable this World MasterCard Fashion Week.

Doris Day and Rock Hudson. Marc Jacobs in jammies. Teddy bears. If there was ever a time to draw inspiration from the boudoir, the transition from late summer to early autumn is utterly apropos. As my friend Jill would say, “It’s nesting time.” But instead of piling on cumbersome knits that render the silhouette that of the Michelin man – not a Michelin star – I used the good sunshine and humidity as an opportunity to bare some skin. No flannel nightgowns here, just silky slinky short-shorts in a soft paisley print and a vintage blouse. I added a muted rose-toned Rebecca Minkoff 5-zip purse and round, oversized sunglasses to keep it chic. It’s all very Miu Miu, don’t you think? Read the rest of this entry »

Stockholm Streetstyle 

Who can ever get enough of ADR? Here she is yesterday in Paris just doing her thing. Incidentally, she must’ve got the Tehran Times memo about covering up and swathing in patterned scarves. I love her kaleidoscopic fusion of florals and geometrics, colours and black and white.

Sass & Bide’s Heidi Middleton at home.

A Eurotrash moment from a summertime somewhere. Maybe from my past, maybe in my future. Love runners as primary mode of transportation whilst ensconced in a long black parachute skirt and a biker vest. My interest is piqued by the statue just right of our leading lady; two ladies, both swathed, side-by-side yet centuries apart.

If you remember a few weeks ago upon my return from New York Fashion Week, I posted about an elusive “pink lady” who I saw there but had no idea who she was. Since, I’ve not only found her blog, My Empirical Life, but I’ve added her to my list of Australian style blog inspirations (the ever-growing), and had a little exchange with her over instagram (i heart social media!). Now it’s time that Tanja Gacic was featured on my blog as an official Eurotrash girl, don’t you think?  Read the rest of this entry »

I’m the featured blogger on The Luxe Life Blogger Roll this week talking all about my 90s inspired Toronto Fashion Week look. Check out the article I wrote and the outfit I styled here: The Luxe Life. 

I’m wearing Nine West shoes; Zara tartan pencil skirt; ELA white star clutch; 7 for all Mankind motorcycle jacket; Karen Walker sunglasses.

Saw this girl walking around after the Karen Walker show in the Meatpacking district. She looked just as regal in real life as she does in this photograph with her monochromatic pink outfit; the bag, a satin Fendi with interlocking F’s. So chic. She is a vision in pink! Incidentally, I have no idea who she is. If anyone knows, please leave a comment.

UPDATE: Her name is Tanja G and she is the blogger behind My Empirical Life. She’s also a blogger for Vogue Australia. So, you see folks, all it takes is a great pair of shoes.

The possibilities are endless. Nighttime reveals latent dreams of couture and high heels. In my mind, it’s the spark of excitement – dressing up to go out like a transformation from monotony to fantastic. I asked myself who I wanted to be that night. A lady with lots of secrets. A leather dress that stuck like a second skin. A disguise. A reprise, even. For I’ve been here before, acting out a venomous slither of long legs and black lashes through the night.

Taking photos around Tribeca after the Sass & Bide show on Tuesday, at The James Hotel rooftop, finally, and earlier, kicking it around Grand Central Station after the jam-packed Diesel show – which we didn’t get to see thanks to Kanye West’s ego taking up five seats – we had to watch from outside the Vanderbilt Hall due to overcapacity regulations. But like I always say when things don’t go quite as planned during Fashion Week, “there’s always next season”. Sass & Bide was spectacular though and I must say my futuristic outfit proved for the perfect street style photographs. I’m wearing a leather Caitlin Power dress, Nella Bella Morelle Clutch and Dolce Vita shoes with transparent heel (on trend). Metallics, plastics and leather. A high ponytail is the only way to complete this look. And of course, a cupcake from famed Magnolia Bakery.  Read the rest of this entry »
