Today I'm wearing... All that glitters (26 March)


 And bling-bada-bing went the catwalks!  If you didn't get the memo, metallic is one of the hottest trends this season.  Whether it be embellishments, high-shine fabrics, foil prints, or just a bit of shimmer, go add some sparkle to your wardrobe!

Both above, Farah Angsana.  I love how different textured fabrics are played with here.

Oh and did I mention Eve's nemesis making a striking comeback?  Yes, last season was all about the leopard but now we are seeing the reappearance of the python-print and in a big way!

So I inevitably grew itchy fingers and took myself off on an outing to the Oriental Plaza here in Jozi.

And just look what I found!

So I got busy...

Today I'm wearing... 22 March - Seeing Squares

All above from Holly Fulton F/W'12
Geometrics, mirror-symmetry, aztek, 60's retro... this was the mantra of the prints that swept the runways of Spring/Summer 12 and have flowed into the looks for Fall/Winter.  One who took these prints to be the essence of her collection was Holly Fulton who left us with a desire for all things symmetrical.  

One of my latest crushes, Mary Katrantzou, mixes and matches paisley prints, geometric shapes and florals into an explosion of Spring motifs in an an effortless way only she can seem to achieve.  I am slightly fixated with her Spring/Summer range for Topshop.  Shift envy!!

From Milan to New York, everyone is seeing squares.

Today I'm Wearing... Sometime in Feb?!

Gisele for Versace SS'12

All above from the sensation that was Versace SS'12

I came across these photos on my camera which I took with the full intention of posting and then promptly forgot about!  Whoops!  So here is my testament to my obsession with the Versace SS'12 collection and all that is white, scaled, embellished and high-glam...

Bling bada bing!  Scalloped hems are key for this season.
