3.1 Phillip Lim: Pick of the Day

Sometimes on these hot summer days you just want to roll out of bed and look great without a second thought. This brings us to the beauty of dresses! A wonderful pick for the summer is this 3.1 Phillip Lim navy blue dress with a luxurious gold design around the collar line and a light cotton material to keep you cool. The dress is available at the AlOthman Online Outlet. I think it’s a great choice and an even better bargain. This effortlessly chic dress is also available in green. Check it out here.

Visionaire 58 – A Tribute to McQueen

Visionaire 58 - A Tribute to McQueen

Visionaire, the limited edition fashion and art album, pays homage to the genius that is Alexander McQueen. The issue, which was supposed to be planned between the designer and Visionaire before he passed, is titled Visionaire 58: Spirit – A Tribute to Lee Alexander McQueen.

The album includes work from Nick Knight, Steven Klein, Mario Sorrenti, Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, and even Lady Gaga, all paying tribute to McQueen.

Visionaire 58 will be available exclusively at Alexander McQueen boutiques and colette Paris.

Le Blog De Betty

I recently found this cute little French Blog called Le Blog De Betty. The blogger is an adorable, typical young french girl who has fun dressing up and styling herself day to day.

I’m not regularly enamored by her choices, as I don’t find them to be all that inspiring, except when I found this look. I adored the way she paired a fancy taffeta bubble skirt, with a soft everyday grey t-shirt, and those shoes!

The black satin, ribbon tie, ballerina a la vixen shoes twisted my heart! I then read on to find that they are made by none other than the ever romantic Alexis Mabille.

Sweet surprises!

Collette Dinnigan: Pick of the Day

It’s hard to find a good quality bikini that’s also unique and cute! This brings me to my Collette Dinnigan pick from our swimsuit selection online. I really liked the mix of colors and the ties on each side.

My favourite part of this bikini, however, is in the detail. Next to the flowers are small “Australia” stamp images- a reference to the designer’s native country. I thought this was so adorable. Check it out here.

Another Australian native is Sass & Bide, which is this weeks featured designer on the online outlet. Enjoy!

I received a new Resort 2011 lookbook in my inbox, and the second I looked at the first image, I knew it was Giles.

From the dramatic proportions to the wild prints and the enigmatic colors there was no doubt that this quirky collection was his.

I am particularly in love with the blue and silver doll print of the gown which I find to be sweet yet sinister at the same time.

I also recently read an article about how to Giles-ify your manicure.

Check out how his signatures eyeballs made their way form the collection (seen on the bag here) to our nail tips.

Loving it!

Surfing Style

Ask me if I like that Surfer Girl style and I will give you a straight up- NO!

But lo and behold, someone has actually changed my mind- a surfer girl gone chic!

Check out this little blog by the name of Trop Rouge.

This girl, Christina, is gorgeous with her full outrageous hair, her pouty lips, and spectacular laid back vibe.

From mixing prints to adding in ruffles and sheerness, this little minx gets her personal style all right, even though always always barefoot.

Emulate her fabulous Summery style by incorporating the girly bathing suits from the AlOthman Outlet with basics from Elizabeth & James and the surfer chic collection of Proenza Schouler.

Sass & Bide: Pick of the Day

Sass & Bide are known for their punky aesthetic, but they still know how to make a sexy dress. We just added the brand to the Online Outlet and there are some very cute options to choose from! My pick for today is this curve hugging grey dress that is rouched down the sides. The design makes it very alluring but the casual material keeps it modest. Check out all of the Sass & Bide collection online.

Courtneys Style Archives

Courtney Love.

Those who don’t know her- she is a rocker, singer, and lead singer for the Alternative rock group ‘Hole’. oh, and of course her claim to fame is the wife of tragically lost Nirvana front man, Kurt Cobain.

Now, she isn’t someone I would look to as the best role model, however, in recent news she has spoke about cleaning up her act and becoming the woman she had previously failed to project to the world.

And so, out of this comes her latest venture: a blog by the name of “What Courtney Wore Today”

Yes, dear readers, this troubled star is showing us how she chooses to style herself day to day. Now call me cruel, but reeeally!?

Uber style bible WWD has already wrote a piece on it as has The Guardian.

Impressive…yet still. Odd.

Take a gander at the blog, what are your opinions?
