Earlier last month, my husband surprised me with a birthday gift & a clue saying: "it was sold out everywhere & I had to search the world for it!" My eyes lit up, looked at my sister & we both screamed @mansurgavriel!! What a sweet surprise... Happy wife, happy life & definitely happy girl, happy bag!

DESIGNER LOVE } The first time we laid eyes on Ulyana Sergeenko's gorgeous dresses and ensambles, we were instantly smitten and fell in love! Ulyana's collection is a true reflection of her personality and you can imagine her wearing everything from head to toe! She's not only a talented fashion designer and photographer, but has also become a street style icon as well. We absolutely adore her and want to live in her closet!! =)

I'M SO IN LOVE with the Pre-Fall 2011 collections. This look in particular is from No. 21 - their entire collection is an absolute dream and I would wear every single look! It's definitely in my "dream wardrobe" list.
My favorite color combination is this color Blush Nude (nude with a hint of pink) and Black. To me, this color combo exudes romance, elegance, and glamour. This dress is simple, yet so pretty! Don't you agree? It's all about the details that makes it so special - the bell sleeves with gathering at the cuffs, the slight pleats/tucks draping down at the neck, and of course my absolute favorite detail of all... the bow at the neck. [Surprise, surprise!] =) I love this entire look - the hair, simple make-up with a defined eye (not sure if it's eye-liner or the lashes, but it's perfect!), the nude nails and shoes - completely effortless!
Note to self: Nude pumps are a must! Love!

TWO WORDS: absolutely beautiful! Can you tell which looks are my favorite? :) I love Jason Wu's entire Pre-Fall Collection and his brilliant choice of colors and color combinations. Jason always designs and creates a cohesive collection and thinks about his "woman" in every aspect - what she would wear from day to night, to the office, events, and special occasions. The looks that I "HEART" are my favorite looks that I would absolutely want to wear, and have in my closet... right now!
Here are some backstage photos I promised. I took a few snapshoots at THUY's Spring 2011 show. Check out Thuy's website and her online shop at www.thuynewyork.com.
Photo 1: Models getting last minute touch up's before the first look hits the runway.
Photo 2: I love this look! The pattern making of this jacket is amazing if you can see the details. I wish I took a photo of the back because the back makes it even more special! It has a harness!
Photo 3: One of my favorite dresses in the collection - a beautiful floral print sheath dress with hand embroidered sequin flowers on top! The details are absolutely beautiful and you have to see it in person to truly appreciate the craftsmanship.
Erin Fetherston - Resort 2011
Everyone is reviewing Spring 2011 Collections... but, I'm still swooning over Erin Fetherston's beautiful Resort 2011 Collection. I want to wear every single look in her collection. It's the PERFECT wardrobe for me! I'm madly, deeply, hopelessly in love, love, love. *sigh* This post is to be continued... =)
Rose Bryne on the cover of Vogue Australia, July 2010. One word - FLAWLESS.
One of my favorite looks on the runway this fashion week - Tao in Ports 1961 Spring 2011 Collection.
A girl's dream. This gorgeous Lanvin dress is perfect for a beach wedding or a wedding anniversary?!! ;)
I want these one-of-a-kind painted dolls of Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington by Andrew Yang!! He got their hair just right and I love how they're dressed in their signature looks. He's super talented. Definitely a big fan of his work.

Elle's Senior Style Director Kate Lanphear is a style icon in my eyes. I look forward to seeing photographs of her to see what she'll wear next. Although her style is edgier than most magazine editors + directors, she pulls off her look so effortlessly and I love examining her outfits and the way she combines her accessories and jewelry.
These are photographs of her modeling designer Eddie Borgo's jewelry for his Fall 2010 online campaign. The first photograph is my favorite!
I love Alber <3 =)
I'm loving Lanvin + Acne's second collaboration. Ance's use of Japanese denim and Alber Elbaz's signature classic style is a match made in heaven! I want to wear every piece! Can I look like that everyday please? Hehe.
