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.
have been quietly obsessing over this colour scheme for a while. decided to call it sherbert. yes, i know the correct spelling is sherbet – but i pronounce it sherbert. and since i am making up a colour scheme i may as well make up a word, too. it’s somewhere between art deco pink, peach, salmon and dusty rose… i guess it’s all of them combined.
i recently received a lovely email from Sandra Lemp, the designer behind lingerie collection Le Boudoir. Now – i’m not the kind of girl who indulges in fancy underthings (i’m more likely to hang about in grandpa pyjama pants than a negligee) and i’m also not one for very frilly, lacy, racy or complicated underwear. but the minute i saw Sandra’s collection i fell – hard.
reassessing my wardrobe right now – in my head, that is. hypothetically. if i were to win the lottery or discovered a giant diamond in my garden… this is what i’d spend that money on.
uh… wow. making all other lookbooks jealous.
