Bumper Fashion Special No. 27

oooh wee it’s been a long time since i’ve done one of these. though it’s actually a pretty good idea to smash all the lovely interwebs fashion finds into one post because there’s just so much of it. so much of the goodness.

too many wonderful new things at la garconne to count. damn you.

Bumper Fashion Special No. 19

you know, i’ve been skimping on the bumper fashion specials lately, mostly because i haven’t come across a lot of summer stuff that i find very inspiring (especially since at least 90% of what we’re exposed to fashion wise is from the north, where they are now settling into deep winter – jackets, coats, scarves, layers etc). so if you’re a southern african like me (or any other southern cousin), you’ll be experiencing 30+ degree heat by now – and black tights are the furthest things from your mind. that being said, i’ve done my best to collect some summer goodness from around the web. note: i’m not counting the spring / summer 2010 shows, which i covered pretty extensively here, here, here & here

herewith bumper fashion special #22

lauren moffat spring/summer 2010:
probably the perfect summer collection

american gigolo
and for something slightly different, if you don’t follow café mode you really should – geraldine dormoy does an interesting series on the visual stylings in films she enjoys. her latest offering was american gigolo (which i haven’t seen because i don’t enjoy richard gere, but might have to rent now since it has the gorgeous lauren hutton in it). some stylish scenes….
