The holiday season is here! and as much as i hate sounding like my mother i cant believe its December already! with grey days looming ahead and work pressure taking its toll i'm trying hard to stay inspired and reminding myself of all the things i love doing specially at this time of the year...a hot cup of black tea on a cold night....dark chocolates in bed!....plum cakes around Christmas and off course staying in and watching Hollywood classics! :-) i'm smiling already! and a little bit of personal style never hurts so right now i'm all about 'borrowed from the boys shirt'! i plan on adding a tuxedo jacket and some swagger and i'm all set to brave the end of another year! ;-)

Jasun wu somehow has a knack of knowing exactly what women want to wear to feel confident and beautiful! with the start of fashion week (yaaay!) there's a lot for me to look forward to as i'm closely following all thats happening (thanks to the world wide web!!! ;) jasan wu was always one of my favorites and i knew he was the one with staying power and he proved it with his spring 2011 collection which was not only mature and edgy but also proved that Wu knows the pulse of his audience...the collection was inspired by the seventies and the forties and comprised of floral print dresses and multi-petaled skirts,chiffon blouses and fluid high waisted beige pants etc..the shoes that the girls wore on the runway and what they carried in their hands was worth paying close attention to,they were from his first accessory collection!!! i would say his spring 11 collection is a must watch and this 27 yr old wunderkind is here to stay! full power to him! :)

It just seems like yesterday when summer had just started and i was busy shopping for all the awesome spring/summer trends (pastels/floral tube dresses/chunky wedges! etc) and before i realized we're nearing fall!...in trying to prepare myself for fall fashion i came across some fresh fall denim trends which will give us all a fresh new perspective on blue jeans, what was interesting to note was that each of the new denim trend or cut was actually a classic recast in a new light.
The crop 50's style denim in slim straight cuts/dark wash with zippered ankles are back! also seen on the ramp was the denim in fall saturated colors like velvety eggplant,deep olive (my personal fav!) and antique gold.Also making a comeback this fall is the skinny cargo jeans which are much sleeker than the old boyfriend cargo style and far more flattering! So i guess we have enough reasons to experiment and find our own new denim go-to! :)

One of the prominent trends of Fall 2010 is fifties inspired fashion...last year was all about the eighties but this year is about going a little further back in time and enjoying all that 50's fashion had to offer....think circle skirts, Capri pants,ladylike accessories, big hair, bow bedecked pumps etc the list id endless!..this trend was seen on the fall runway of Fendi, Louis vuitton and Isabel Marant to name a few...my personal favorite was Isabel Marant who did the whole 50's sexy siren look to perfection....i'm looking forward to trying some of the 50's inspired looks this fall and i know its going to be a lot of fun! ;-)

"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only.Fashion is in the sky, in the street, Fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, What is happening". COCO CHANEL.
Coco Chanel is one woman who never stops inspiring me, she not only dared to dream but even changed the way woman dressed and thought about fashion back in her time.I look upto her for inspiration and i'm always awed by the way she thought so ahead of her times, her ideas were so modern and progressive they'll always be relevant.Here's to the amazing woman that Coco Chanel was.. :)

I had bought Eat Pray Love- the book a while ago when i saw it on the stands and read amazing reviews about it not to mention Julia Roberts who stars in the movie based on the book highly recommends it! i finally got down to reading it only today...it could have a little to do with the fact that it rained all evening...perfect time to cozy up with a hot cuppa and a nice read!...here's hoping:)
