okay, be prepared for a MASSIVE these things! since i haven’t posted anything since tuesday (gasp) that means i have a load to share with you. the motherload. or rather, mother lode – because all these things are golden. hey?!
i’ve been holding back on posting about the NYFW spring 2012 shows because i always go completely overboard and end up basically re-posting the whole of style.com over here. so i decided this time that i would pick only 4 pieces from some of my favourite collections – outfits i would actually wear / dream about wearing. jill stuart was the toughest to pick from, she really knocked it out of the park with this collection.
i had fun making these. in photoshop… not by hand.

yesterday i had a jaw on the floor moment when i saw the lookbook for the debut collection by Ulyana Sergeenko spotted on Lisa’s blog (do you read Lisa’s blog? you should). you may know Ulyana from street style blogs, as she is often seen at various fashion weeks around the world. i didn’t even realise that she was a designer – but the collection is 100% her. especially when she was spotted in this red dress and wore these shoes, not to mention this little get up.
* the giveaway is now closed * congratulations to Laura! *
this is the first time i have ever done a giveaway on the blog – a pretty momentous occasion! and who better to kick off the giveaway fun than something special from Of a Kind? literally, very special. each week Of A Kind releases a limited edition item in a small batch, which is designed elusively for them. that means you can be one of only a few people in the whole world who has a one of a kind piece.
i’ve been following Tavi‘s new online magazine Rookie – “an online publication for teenage girls featuring writing, photography, illustrations, videos, and more” – since it launched this week …and i’m actually pretty jealous because i wish something as smart as Rookie had existed when i was a teen. readers are in for a treat just going by their list of contributors (many of whom i recognise from flickr and around the internet). one such person is Petra Collins who i posted about earlier this year – she styled & photographed this editorial for Rookie called School Spirit.
