Layering for Fall

This is actually an outfit from back in October (when it was warm enough not to wear stockings) that I took waaay too many photos of and  trouble deciding which ones I liked. So like a mature adult I just ignored it for a while. :D
Anyways, here is a great layering outfit that I would wear to the office or a business casual school event.

Me in my kitchen looking really grainy, not sure why

I am wearing:
Jacket Handmade by me brown with a polka dot linning and even though I made it, its too tight in the sleeves
Shirt: Handmade by me, my own pattern One of the first items I drafted myself, the back is actually really cute but you cant see it here.
Dress H&M Its really light and the back is low, great for summer
Belt and necklaces: unfortunately I cant remember :S
Shoes Aldo birthday present from my dad, one of my favourite pairs, such great colours :)

yes I am falling over, the wall is helping me though :P

My messy apartment... please look at my armpit instead

Without the Jacket, still cute!

Sorry for the photo overload!

A Common Question

Often I have people ask me why I care about "fashion" because I in no way can afford the items I seem to covet from the runway and editorial shoots. On my last post a friend posted a comment that has inspired me to write an open letter of sorts, more of a one shot response, to all those nay-sayers:

Perhaps cars aren't your thing, but a lot of people will faun over the hottest new sports car regardless of whether they will ever be able to afford them, and no one thinks that is weird. Some of us like to imagine a world where we could wear an Elie Saab creation (and have somewhere to wear it ;P), its not so different in that respect.
For me its more than that, the runway really does inspire my clothing choices, even if I cant wear the exact outfit, I can emulate the colour or cut. A video that I've always felt speaks to how I feel, click the link bellow Meryl :D

So the gist: Its not about the individual item or what you can afford today, because everything is connected. You are part of the fashion world whether you want to be or not. All I did was choose an active role.

Elie Saab Spring 2012 RTW

I've become such a sucker for Elie Saab's flowing creations, and his Spring Ready to Wear collection is no exception. The colour pallet was beautiful (as always), bellow are my favourites (you may notice a theme) prepare yourself for some major evening gown beauty.

Does this look familiar to anyone? I cant for the life of me figure out where I have seen it before...

The movement is so awesome!! Love it.
