I may have a love for burgundy lipstick and burgundy laptops (though it runs at a snails pace), but I have only one burgundy ensemble in my entire wardrobe. On the hunt for new pieces, I compiled the outfit above.
Beautiful textures, a mix of sugary sweet and warm tones, and a lace collar to peep out from one of Martina Spetlova’s most beautiful jackets. With so much going on, an outfit like this begs for super-straight hair tucked behind the ears.
Shop The Look:
Alexander Wang Nikola heels
Pastel colour block satchel
Martina Spetlova patchwork jacket
Lace detail denim shirt
Velvet skater skirt
Bed Head Control Freak Defrizz & Smooth Serum
Not going to lie, guys and dolls – I’m feeling a little bit like David Bowie right now.
Fashioning yourself some “Alexander Wang by Linda Farrow-esque” pointed cat eye sunglasses have that effect, I suppose. I doubt you’ll be seeing my eyeballs for a while.

A/W 2012 was one of my favourite ‘model seasons’ to date. Mixed in with the supers were a plethora of up-and-coming beauties: from Zuzanna Bijoch (above) to the i-D cover model Lina Zhang, there was a lot of fabulous werk happening in New York, London, Paris and Milan. One model even walked 73 shows! (See below)

Though all of the talent nominated were more than deserving to leave the 2011 CFDA Awards with tropy in hand, I could not be happier with last night’s results. What a perfect group. (Each category’s winner is in bold.)
