I haven’t posted SS11 colorful pieces in a long time and now that Xmas lights are gone, I thought we might need a little sparkle to get us through this damn long winter…
These heels look like you could jogg in them and not even sweat, drive a sport car with them and not even crash it, climb up 6 sets of spiral stairs and not even miss a step, steal a kiss from your boyfriend and not even have to jump or break his neck… everything but walk on water or fly.
The New York Times Style Magazine describes it as a “screen-printed tote featuring a likeness of Hermès’s iconic Birkin bag”, which is pretty close to the original idea its designers, Roni Brunn and Olena Sholomytska, had in mind when they conceived it. The Thursday Friday duo wanted to design a bag that would be used for everything, including the groceries.
“We realized that we were using an extra bag to supplement our ‘real’ bags,” Sholomytska says. “So we ended up with a surreal design that references luxury but is ultimately an anti-status status symbol.”
It’s a bit like the straw bags last summer, that you could use for the beach, the city, the market, shopping… But as trendy as they became they never got close to be it-bags, which seems to already be the case for this Together Bag, as there’s a growing waiting list populated by fashionistas dying to get the new cool (and cheaper) “Birkin”.
You can get it in blue, red and camel for only $35.00. More details here.
Anyway, let’s not look for the sun yet, nothing better than confort fashion to cheer us up… Besides, that gives us time to get this belly back inside before we get to put on fancy skinny clothes.
I’m happy as a bird but I must admit I have a little crush on dark fashion, skull head and skeleton accessories… But only in small dose and with the right purpose. Check it out…
I just discovered a great website, LOOKBOOK, where anyone from anywhere can upload a photo of their look giving the details of each item… A great way to get style inspiration that doesn’t require to go through a thousand blogs and end up with the boring everyday look anyway because it’s too much work. I find it a really cool concept – even on a cultural level as they get daily posts from Osaka, Amsterdam, Warsaw,… Check it out!
A few days ago, I had a crush on one of Nicole Richie‘s looks, all from her second line, Winter Kate. I analysed more the picture and I managed to come down to ONE item that I would really die to have in my closet (very interesting exercice btw, more or less the same idea as “you end up alone on an island, you can keep just ONE thing – what do you choose?): her georgous blue velvet shorts.
Then I saw Alexa Chung created the same shorts for her collection forMadewell and got all happy on my fashion island… But where will I find my winter shorts? …
Unfortunately, I don’t have the answer to that question yet, but I’m working on it… Instead, I bought velvet black leggings, because they were 30% off and also because I thought if I’d get really desperate I could cut them shorts.
