Yay, it's that time of the year again. holiday season is the perfect excuse to experiment with fashion (not that we need an excuse to do that but you catch my drift) and we can wear sequince,crazy hair accessories and all the glitter we can find without feeling stupid. but it's also the most stressful time of the year...at least for me. because there are so many parties and at some point, i just don't know what to wear anymore. i do love this look. it's elegant and sexy. but the oversized blazer turns the sexy down a notch. since the outfit is all black, i thought it would be fun to add a pop of color to the nails to give this look a suprising twist. this is for the casual fashionista that doesn't want to look overdone and doesn't like to look like she's putting to much thought and effort in her look.

out of this world


Intergalactic prints at Christopher Kane Resort 2011 collection

i love how christopher kane's collections are always whimsical. his clothes inspire me to step out of my fashion comfort zone and try new things. i love the detail of the stardust and insane cosmic explosions. i just wish the price for a piece out of this collection wasn't so insane.

curvy chiq

ysl palais pump nordstrom: $720

i can't get over how cool these shoes are. with minor changes, ysl took a simple pump to a whole new level.
Even though the curved heel thing has been done before by Dior and Prada, i think yves executes it best.
these suede beauties are also available in darkgreen, yellow and blue.
and there's a wedge version and a version with shaved goathairs on the heel.
but i thought i'd show you the simplest versions... and the prettiest to be honest.

balmain groupie


patterns, lines, power, sexuality, shimmer, edge, excentricity, femininity. balmain has it all. this designer speaks my language. i went absolutely gaga over his fall 2010 rtw collection. it has everything every stylish woman should try to translate to her own wardrobe. like, the shoulders. you have to have at least one top/blazer/bodycon dress with bold shoulders. those won't go out of style for at least a couple of years. but if they do, who cares. it makes your waist look super tiny. and i decided that i'm going to keep wearing them anyway. a deep v-neck tee or dress will elongate your neck and will slim down your body's upper half. maxi dresses have officially promoted to evening wear. just make sure the dress has a sexy thight fit and some sparkle or sequince.

since we're not all heiresses, i suggest you try to get inspired by these pieced and translate them to your own wardrobe. and since big labels influence high end stores. i'm sure you'll have no trouble finding what you're looking for.

festival season

Vice
laying in the grass, hearing your favorite band play, eating home made sandwiches, meeting new people, appreciating your surroundings and enjoying the sun. That's what festivals are all about. i'm not going to tell you what to wear this time. because no one cares what someone wears at a festival and neither should you. wear clothes you can afford to lose and enjoy yourself.

effortlessly fashionable

www.fashionistass.web-log.nl

to all you normal people with normal lifes and normal jobs, you know, the ones that stare in disbelieve when someone actually buys that 1600 dollar bag.Don't feel bad if you can't afford these things. style has nothing to do with money. and fashion is something to be inspired by, not something you should completely copy. if you have style you find the best things in trift stores, you get dressed in 15 minutes in the morning and people compliment your outfits all the time, even when you don't feel like you're wearing anything special.
now, thát's stylish.

battle of the sizes





V magazine, Models.com
pictures by Terry Ricardson

a typical model with a size 4 on your left and a model with a size 8 on the right. does it really make a big difference when it comes to modeling as we are made to believe?
why do designers make us think that their clothes will look better on thin people?

your size doesn't make your clothes look good. but your personality, excentricity and sense of style. that's what i think.
