*Fall 2012 Trend Alert: Orient Express

Sigh. Definitely been a while since I featured a "Trend" post on the blog and I figured might as well get them done while these trends are well, still trends! Haha.

Today's agenda: Oriental!
2012 has so far seen a massive interest in the East, predominantly with the Asian nations. While it may be because China is set to become the dominant global power in the next few years, or it may just have to do with globalization, or even the amazingly vivid inspiration provided by such a rich and colorful culture....whatever the reason, the exquisite luxury of the orient is back!
Louis Vuitton, Dries Van Noten, Zac Posen and Osman are just some of the designers using floral fabrics in their kimono and cheongsam inspired pieces.

 Take a look!

Think it's hard to pull off? Celebs do it without looking too literal....[with the exception of Katy Perry]
Top Row L-R: Fan BingBing, Elisa Sednaoui, Katy Perry, Audrey Tatou, Dakota Fanning
Bottom Row L-R: Olivia Palermo, Katy Perry, Dita Von Tesse, Liya Kebede, Katy Perry

Paired with basics, these pieces can add pop to any outfit. Timeless and chic with a modern interpretation. Who wouldn't want to dress like that?

After all, isn't the modern woman a woman of the world?

Lots to do kiddies. Constantly working. #endofsemesterstress

Have some pretty.

That last one should definitely become my motto. Sigh.

Morning kiddies!

I know it's been a while since I've posted and I really am being a delinquent blogger..but this week has been so utterly hectic for me...

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about you guys. I have thought about you every day that I didn't post...but school work, unfortunately, comes first...

Anyway, second set of papers in, and I've got about two weeks before the crazy starts again.

As a result, all I want to do right now is catch up on my missing sleep, which is another reason why I've been pretty neglectful of the blog.

Now that I'm rested, some daily pretty?

Can you guess the theme? :)
Life is something to do when you can't get to sleep.-Fran Lebowitz

If you can't sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It's the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.”-Dale Carnegie

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”-Dr. Seuss

“Man is a genius when he is dreaming.”-Akira Kurosawa

*la vie en rose...

Bonjour kiddies!

In a very French mood today, as I've the amazing opportunity to wake up in Paris!
A gorgeous city of culture and romance, and fashion capital of the world, I'm sure to find loads of inspiration here!

Hold on to your seats beautifuls, lots of posts to come...

*Remember, remember...

Remember, remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason, why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, guy, t'was his intent
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England's overthrow.
By God's mercy he was catch'd
With a darkened lantern and burning match.
So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.

And what shall we do with him?
Burn him! 

So, it's Guy Fawkes' day and, as most of you know, we celebrate his failure to bomb Parliament by [none other than] setting off fireworks!

Hence, firework themed fashion! Seems fitting right?
MSGM F/W 2012.
MSGM F/W 2012.
Gorgeous, simple, but eye-catching. Cute, no?

*Trini To The Bone


Hey kiddies!

If anyone wants to see where I come from, or what I should sound like please, please, please check out this video. It makes me insanely homesick and super proud to be a Trinidadian.


Maybe I should do a post about Trinidad??

Ew. It's been super rainy for the past few days here in England. And, if you think that's enough to get you depressed, imagine how I feel! As a result of the dreary weather, I have been perpetually lazy, curled up in bed, trying to stay warm. *insert massive hot chocolate craving here*

Naturally, I'm gonna turn this frown upside down, and blog about it!

So... *drum roll* wonderfully depressing rain editorials!
Haha, just kidding! They're inspiring, in their own way and, although I love the sun and warmth, coming from the Caribbean, these pictures make me want to get my brolly and a pair of rain boots and go splash in some puddles.

What do a Hindu Goddess, a primate, and a skinless corpse have in common?? They've all been Heidi Klum's Halloween costumes!
With hurricane Sandy ravishing the East Coast of the US, many of the Halloween festivities had to be cancelled. Most notably, the New York Halloween parade, which was cancelled for the first time in 39 years, and Heidi Klum's annual Halloween party! *sad face* due to the hurricane dubbed "Frankenstorm."

Thus, in honor of Ms. Klum's dedication to the holiday, I have decided to feature the past 12 of her elaborate costumes, including the one she would've worn this year, as today's 'Daily Pretty!'
Top Row L-R: Lady Godiva, Betty Boop, Sexy Alien, Red Witch, Black Witch, Eve's apple
Bottom Row: Black Cat, Goddess Kali, Crow, Transformer, Skinless Corpse, Cleopatra

What's your favorite? I personally LOVE the Transformer from 2010. #amaze

*p.s. If any of you are reading from the East Coast, or have friends or family there, I hope everyone's alright. Stay safe. Stay warm kiddies!
