*oh so coco... #modelmonday

Hello darlings,

Today's #modelmonday post features an editorial from absolute fave of mine, none other than Coco Rocha!

This Canadian beauty, known for her extreme posing skills, has such an expansive career, from being discovered at an Irish tap dancing competition, to being dubbed by Vogue as part of the new crop of supermodels, she certainly has come a long way.

So, as you struggle out of bed this Monday morning, and need the inspiration to get you through the week, look at these absolutely ferocious [in a tribal way] images from Ms. Coco.

Hello my pretties,

So, it's a new year...with new flare and lots to celebrate.

Big things are happening this year *fingers crossed*...

...starting with me resuming my blog.

After a few months of some tech difficulties, I decided to give it another go and keep this bad boy alive!

So, let's pour some bubbly [like these models], get dolled up..and start this year right!

To 2015!

*the other chanel... #modelmonday

Seems like one of my absolute favorite models is back to work.

After taking a hiatus [I'm actually not sure that she did; regardless] she is back on the scene!

And, with a name like Chanel Iman, you know she's destined to be a formidable fashion force.

“If I could, I’d have strawberry pancakes with whipped cream every morning, but during the week I eat fruit, yogurt, cereal, eggs, toast, and, of course, oatmeal.”- Chanel Iman.

Here's her amazingly chic cover story for June's edition of Harper's Bazaar Russia.


Isn't that last shot just gorgeous? I love it!

[Can't believe she's younger than me! *grumble*]

*waking up

Hello kiddies...

...and welcome to the new site!

Who would have thought that a "simple" website migration would be so time consuming!

Alas, it is finished [for the most part; just a few minor adjustments to make] but, with a number of unfinished posts and NYFW coming up *bites nails*, no time like the present to get up and running!

Just to get back into the groove of things, here's a funky fresh throwback editorial entitled 'Haute Tension' featuring one of my all time fave models, Natalia Vodianova (who has recently been named the fifth highest-paid model of 2014).

Isn't she gorge?!

So much more to come, so buckle up!

And have a great day!

*R15; next up, burberry

Ok, so I have a confession to make...

I am really, really liking the Burberry brand.

I don't know what it is; maybe it's the fact that they're moving away from that nude-checkered pattern that the brand is known for and into a more...colorful territory, but something is speaking to me, and it is saying, "I'm fun, I'm playful, I'm luxury."

Christopher Bailey, Chief Creative and CEO at Burberry, seems to really know what he's doing, steering the 158 year old brand in a magnificent direction. Recently, we've seen a unique use of materials-from shiny metallics to see-through plastics- and while, the clothing still retains its luxe feel, designers have taken that and added a fun ease to it, experimenting with new, bright colors and textures.

Love these textured skirts!..and the length=sophistication

The classic elements are still there- the British feel, the longer silhouette, even the "Burberry Trench,"- but this time reworked in a fresh, modern take.

Ruffles, ombre AND leather; what more could you want?

*Buy or Bye?!: @rihanna

Darlings, Queen B reigned supreme in our last edition, but now it's time to put your voting fingers to use again.

Queen of controversial outfits, and ex-queen of Instagram, Rihanna, covers the July/August issue of Harper's Bazaar Arabia.

While the title "The New Modesty: Cover up in Style" suggests a bad girl gone good, we all know Rih loves to bare it all.

Do you believe this Bajan beauty and recent CFDA Style Icon Award recipient has changed her ways? Or are you not buying it?

...harem action realness...
I think she slays...but it's not for me to decide.

Let your clicker do the talking.


*R15: from the top, A. Wang

So kiddies, it has indeed taken me quite a while to compile and document my favorite resort collections which I guess I will quickly run through, showing you my favorite looks.

First off, we have A. Wang. A relative newcomer to the fashion scene, Wang first gained notoriety for winning the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund competition in 2008. Since then, he has, in addition to maintaining his own line, been hired as the Creative Director for the fashion powerhouse Balenciaga and successfully demonstrated impeccable tailoring skills and innovation when it comes to design.

His offerings for the 2015 Resort collections are no exception, with Wang, showing progression in his work and featuring his own urban, street flair with a tongue-in-cheek nouveau approach to tie-dye.

Wang said he was preoccupied with the idea of care instructions and things being ruined by washing, colors running and such, and thus, a laundromat setting was the designer's ideal setting when preparing the lookbook.

And, while not all of his clothing may be to my liking, none can deny that he is has a unique perspective when it comes to clothing.

What do you think?

I'm diggin' it...hehe
