Blending In

Whilst doing research for my 2013 AW range (AKA online shopping) i stumbled apon this super fresh site specialising in printing some of the funniest quotes & excerpts around.

But the best part is the process – chose the  quote you want on your shirt, choose from 5 different styles followed by fit options within those styles, as well as a heap of colours. You literally get to design your own piece, i did and i had a blast (Keep your eye out on my FB or Instagram to see what mine comes out like).

All items are printed on 100% cotton American Apparel clothing, are well priced and come with cheap as chips international shipping.

Trending – Quilted Leather

This is one trend i can really get behind, especially now that the cold is creeping in!  There are oh-so-many ways to Integrate quilted leather into the current grunge look and make it your own. So, what are you waiting for?

Met Gala 2013 – Best & Worst Dressed

IMO,  no one hit  ‘Style’ on its proverbial head this year.  In fact i spend most of the time horrified. i believe they all missed the memo stating that standing out isn’t necessarily the same as standing out, if you know what i mean.

Anyway, here are my picks for best dressed…

Proof that spikes are still trending..

Cam shows us how to be different with out going over the top.

Miranda doing cut-outs like a boss, although ever so slightly underweight.

Mrs Timberlake joins the punk craze without going overboard. Love it.

I think this is the best i have ever seen Kristen look, she may have actually put some effort in to this one.

slide_295897_2416895_free

This one will get mixed reviews i’m sure, but i like it.  Her hair and make up work perfectly to let the dress do all the talking.

Giselle rocks out in this metal mini

Unsure how i feel about this one, i love the hair and the edgy look Anne is channeling, it’s just the feathered sleeves that are throwing me…

And my picks for worst dressed…

Miley-Cyrus-Met-Gala-2013

I LOVE SJP as much as the next gal but i believe this headpiece to be hideous.

slide_295897_2416528_free

Pink overload..

I’m sure you have all seen this pic by now. Talk about your matchy matchy. A bit of a neckline may have helped break this up a little.

Where to begin? Was this a costume party and i wasn’t aware?

Mads has stepped into a time warp and thinks it the 80’s again.

Kelly Osborne is said to be an authority on fashion these days… um…

slide_295897_2416911_free

Well, that’s everyone  i believed to be noteworthy this year. Each for their own reasons.

 In a way celebs are like  catwalk models, their outfits are overly elaborate to expose the style of the season, but are not wearable for us normal humans.  Safe to say, punk is in, but lets tone it down a little, yeah?
