Pre fall 2012 Favourites and Critiques

I still think the "Pre-Fall" trend in the fashion industry is a little excessive especially since the collections aren't that insane, special, or different but HEY I love clothing so I'm going to love some of the pieces. Most of the collections I felt were wipped together in a week so they were drapey, simple, and boring. They just weren't worth my time. 



Reem Acra

Another Reem Acra
This one is bound to end up on a star on a red carpet. 

I've never been a big stripes person so inevitable I don't like all that many Missoni pieces. This jacket on the other hand I adore because the stripes are muted and it is in neutral tones. 

Herve Leger by Max Azria
I love the little slits. They are perfectly placed. 

Another Herve Leger
I LOVE the harnesses in this collection. They include no metal wear that I can see in photos which makes them less bondagey and more high fashion. 

And ofcourse Dsquared!
I love these Canadian men. They create high fashion looks that when disassembled the pieces can be worn with jeans, sneakers, a tank top. The everyday girl can wear their clothing. I also love that you don't have to be a twig to wear their garments (perhaps excluding the dress shown above). 

Burberry Prorsum
This SEXY 1940s inspired collection is FABULOUS. I want every piece, including the mens garments to dress my boyfriend in.  The only pieces I could do without and that confuse me are the cardigans with puppy cartoons on them, but hey  the rest of the collection is so fabulous that I don't care that much. 
Another Burberry

Not exactly my Favourites:
Normally I love a lot of BCBG by Max Azria's looks but this season they took the aztec thing far too far. First off the aztec inspiration was overdone last season and the one before that, and a few years ago we had to go through the Mexican themes. I'm bored. 
Secondly why on EARTH would I want to wear an Aztec MooMoo when their calendar is the one that supposedly says I'm going to die in a year. 

Calvin Klein
I am shocked at CK's collection! Drab colours, drab cuts, draby everything. Were not in the middle of WWIII for goodness sake. What I am most shocked about is the fit of each and every garment. You can have military inspired garments that are still sexy or fitted but these garments all have something off about them. The photo I chose to include is of my favourite of the garments, and it still has miss shapen shoulders and sleeves. A lot of the other garments make the teeny weeny models look a lot larger than they are. 

Oscar de la Renta
The entire collection except for the outfit above was... MEH....
Boring, drab, H&My. A few of the jackets were made of different materials and sewn like a patch quilt. Not exactly the most expensive looks.

Holiday Dresses 2012

Roksanda Ilincic 2011

I thought I would share some fancy Holiday Dresses/ New Year Dresses for this season. I do love spending an evening oggling dresses I have no where to wear and can't afford :D

Im not sure who this is by, but I you have a formal event to attend this is VERY appropriate. 

Some trashy brand but HEY you cant go wrong with a cheetah mini on New Years if you have a hot bod like this model. 

I WANT. Not just for the holidays but for life. 

Zuhair Murad 2012. I live and breath for this mans dresses. 

I love exagerated proportions and I LOVE this colour combo at the moment (this EXACT moment, get back to me in a day and see what I think then...) 

Some J Hudson and the Blonds 2012. If I had time I would bedazzle a dress Just like this!

Marchesa 2011

Rachel Zoe Holiday Collection

Amazing Purse

This Purse is A- MAZE-ING. I want one, but there are SO many reasons that is impossible and a bad idea!
To name a few: It cost more than my kidneys would sell for on the black market
It is seethrough and I'd have lame things in it :(
and I get EVERYTHING dirty, so knowing me I'd fall face first in a mud puddle in this. 

Conclusion is: I'll just stare at photos of it

Final Danier Design Video

My Danier Design Challenge Video is now up online!!

Fishtail Trend

I have noticed a lot of fishtails on the red carpet, cat walks, and celebrity magazines lately. Its  a trend you can't help but love because its easy, practical, involves no heat, and keeps your hair out of your face. Plus its very easy to do once you practice a few times.

Here is a super easy guide on fishtails

A photo of it being done. 

A really funky fishtail. If you have coloured hair a fishtail turns out so cool!!

Celebs with coloured hair like it to! ahaha

I personally HATE this one. Far to FISHY for me. 

Another cool take on braids. I have a spiral braid in my hair right now. Your hairs is really curly and beautiful if you put it in while damp and take it out when dry. 
To do a spiral braid put your hair in two sections, twist both in the same direction, while twisting them around each other in the opposite direction.

Almost finished: Wool Jacket

This is my wool jacket project, but it's not entirely finished. It needs a final pressing, buttons, button holes, and custom painting. You'll have to wait to see what the painting looks like!

The buttons will be marbled grey with 4 holes. And theres a good size shoulder pad in this bad boy!
It also has cheetah lining. 

The skirt portion of the jacket zips off, as well as the pussy bow collar. Sorry I forgot to take photos of it without the bow collar. 

Draped Pink Dress

In my "spare" time I made this greek inspired pink dress. I had the 
-pink sheer draped material leftover from the Triumph competition last year
- silk (the top part of the underdress) from pants I made 
-a knit material from the Triumph competition used as the skirt portion of the underdress

The lace is all I bought for this, for a total of $15 and I have a little leftover

Ignore that I have no makeup on please!

Danier Jacket- Final Product

Here it is!! My WASPS inspired Danier Leather Jacket, made of brown lamb leather, flannel, and faux sheerling. The sheerling liner zips out, and the sleeves zip off of that so that it is wearable all year round.

BAHAHAHA MONET in the background!
