  • Shredded White T-Shirt + Boyfriend Jeans

    By SP on September 30, 2011
    I finally have a shredded tee. Shampalove.com sent this one to me, and I immediately shredded it some more. I guess I could have worn a strapless bra, huh? Quite frankly, I really didn’t care. The grungier the better. Paired it with boyfriend jeans, and some accessories gifted by Peace Images. Love the ankh necklace. I wore the earrings here […]

  • Balmain Spring 2012 Collection | Paris Fashion Week

    By SP on September 30, 2011
    I always look forward to seeing Balmain collections, which seems to get better with each season. It’s a given that I can’t afford the pieces, but it’s beautiful to look and draw inspiration from. If it were affordable, I’d probably be in Balmain all day, everyday. I love the rock and roll edge for the spring 2012 collection. Congrats to […]

  • Balenciaga Spring 2012 Collection | Paris Fashion Week

    By SP on September 30, 2011
    For the shapes, colors, prints and outside the box thinking, I love Balenciaga’s spring 2012 collection. The sculptured silhouettes still appear wearable and sophisticated. The pants are incredibly well cut and look flattering. Also loving the blouses and color block dresses. And of course, we can’t ignore the shoes. Love, love, love. Enjoy.. xx

  • Paper Dresses by Matthew Brodie

    By SP on September 29, 2011
    Saw this Madame magazine spread and was immediately drawn to the colors and shapes. Was even more impressed to find out that these were “Paper Dresses” created by Matthew Brodie. He designed a whole collection of paper dress and crafted his own props and set. He said: “We really wanted to create something beautiful from a material that doesn’t normally […]

  • Louis Vuitton Cuir Indra Collection

    By SP on September 29, 2011
    I have been staring at this collection everyday since I received the pictures in my inbox. Finally decided to share. The Louis Vuitton Cuir Indra Collection was seen in the Fall Winter 2011 Menswear Show. Yeah, they are really for the guys, but you also know that I spent way too much time in the mens department shopping for myself. […]

  • White Aztec Print Blouse + White Maxi Skirt

    By SP on September 28, 2011
    I shared in this post A White & Glitter Affair that I’m not only craving white for fall/winter, but gold and silver as well. Technically, we don’t have winter in LA, but it’s fun to say it and enjoy the perks of each season. A huge thanks to Peace Images for gifting me these earrings and more. They are perfect […]

  • DSquared2 Spring 2012 Collection

    By SP on September 28, 2011
    First of all, can I just say that I have never see rain boots look so freaking sexy?! They almost remind me of these Givenchy pair I posted a couple of years ago. At Milan Fashion Week, DSquared2 designers Dean and Dan Caten paid homage to music festivals with their spring 2012 collection. DSquared2 duo reportedly had all the signatures […]

  • Aztec Print Obsession

    By SP on September 28, 2011
    If you haven’t noticed, I have a tiny obsession with prints and loud colors. OK, maybe it’s not so tiny.. Like everything else that it seems like I collect, clothing and accessories in aztec prints are inclusive. Thought I’d share my aztec print moodboard with you all. They will be in heavy rotation along with my whites and glitter in […]

  • Made in Africa: Lanre Da Silva Ajayi Spring 2012 Collection

    By SP on September 27, 2011
    Another favorite from Made in Africa Arise Show during NYFW,  LDA also known as Lanre Da Silva Ajayi is known for her structured vintage pieces. She mostly draws inspiration from 40s and 50s couture. I love her use of lace here. The color palettes, embroidered pieces and shapes are beautiful. My favorites are (1st row – pic 3 & 4), […]
