i want lots of clothes and f* loads of diamonds

It's officially Couture day number 3, and i couldn't resist posting two outfits from ] Jean Paul Gaultier. It's so theatrical and eccentric, that at first viewing on The Fashion Spot (By the way does anyone hand out invitations? It's getting hard for me to find the information i want without the log-in!) i fell in love, and the link fell straight into my favourites pile. The sheer (almost cage-like) wedding dress is pure fashion magic, and the feathered shoulders are just the right couture twist on the exaggerated shoulder trends of the rtw collections. Seems like the couturier's have heard my blogging plea for innovation!

pictures, the fashion spot
And now i'm going to be really irritating and change the entire theme of the post to my recent tags. From my gorgeous blogging BFFL, Lottie, I've been tagged the 16 questions about me post, and well, here it is, the definitive fashion guide to Moi!

  1. I'm a cheap skate. I buy all my clothes either in the sale or i use one of my many discount cards to get money off.

  2. As i've ranted on about in the past, i have a fear of bright colours. I like to dress subtly, just focusing on nice fabric or textures...

  3. I only own about 4 pairs of shoes. One pair of super low heels, one pair of lace pumps, one pair of converse and one pair of over the knee boots. And all you bloggers with your amazing shoes give me serious withdrawal symptoms!

  4. I find the fashion on the Hills and The City inspiring. Its that laid back LA look, okay?

  5. I am obsessed with organising magazines. I've started a fashion inspiration folder like the lovely Jamie and i'm infatuated with it...

  6. I keep my Vogues and Elles in seperate piles on my bookcase all in monthly order...

  7. I have a small fortunes worth of fashion books. And yet i haven't read almost a half of them yet!

  8. I find Chanel always inspiring, even if the collections are usually very repetitive. Its the pearls-on-black look!

  9. I even plan my outfits when i do P.E in school. Silver converse and topshop cycling shorts anyone?

  10. I've never watched Sex and the City. But i did adore the film.

  11. I don't really have a 'trademark' style. And i don't really want one yet. I'm having too much fun experimenting!

  12. I love adrodgyny. I've got a very boyish figure so it seems to suit me...

  13. I've wanted to be fashion editor of Vogue since i was 11. And i still do.

  14. I have 3 coats, and i alternate the days that i wear each one.

  15. I'm attracted to things that are so tacky that they are amazing. Snakeskin heart shaped bag with chain strap = Yes Please!

  16. I only really watch London fashion week. With the exception of Couture and a bit here and there of Paris.

And then i've been given the 'Fabulous Blogger Award' from amazing bloggettes closeup, and also from the amazing international ♫ Vii ♫. This is so sweet of you guys, thankyou!

This goes out to everyone that commented my last post, you guys made my day!

I love Gossip Girl - its just fabulous! are you team serena or team blair?

"I don't really have a 'trademark' style. And i don't really want one yet. I'm having too much fun experimenting!" - I guess me too :)

Kay said...

He seems to have pulled back a bit on the eccentric front whilst maintaining the innovative spirit you were talking about... I like it! I only really pay much attention to Paris and London, Milan in particular rarely interests me.

Also I really like your blog so I added you to my links section - and I'm pretty selective so feel proud (:

Rabenschwarz said...

great post, love the title and the bride dress.

adele said...

wow, those dresses are amazing. couture week was pretty laidback as they go, but there was a bit of extravagance that i missed!

Valentine said...

I enjoyed reading your random facts! and I agree with you about Chanel.. I used to not like the designs as much but I gave in and saw how wonderfully classic and yet forward they are. Pearls on black are here to stay.. haha.



dapper kid said...

Congrats on the award dear :) And I loved the JPG couture, it was wonderfully creative and on the good side of crazy! Oh and I totally keep my Vogue and Elles in order by month, I hate having messy shelves!

Toothache and Vinyl said...

hahaha, one of the main reasons why i watch The Hills and The City is to see all the cool clothes:)
