Fausto Puglisi Fall/Winter 2013

This is the first Fausto Puglisi collection, including Ungaro, that I've sat up and noticed. Its got a Versus without the Versace tackiness vibe to it, and made me regret throwing out a lot of tartan over the years. It only juuuuust stop short of being too trendy (please God, give me the good grace not to smack caps off peoples heads), but keeping the shapes and embellishment pretty simple and adding in daggy Dad Tommy Hilfiger stripes tones it down perfectly.

Here's what Esty thinks:

Chloé Fall/Winter 2013

This will be the first in a serious of fall season wrap up / get the look posts. Since I browse fashion shows with an Etsy / Svpply tab open at all times I thought I may as well share them with you, because it means if you buy these pieces, its stops me from doing so and my credit card will thank you.

Unlike many other high end brands that do "simple", I would actually save up for an investment piece by Chloé (except a handbag because I cannot be trusted with expensive things that aren't attached to my body in some way - I will leave it on a plane or at some bar and I will cry). This is because they do it so mind-blowingly well - the perfect balance of feminine and masculine, old and young.

While I wait for enough pennies to roll into my savings, here's what Etsy is tempting me with:

Really Tough And Sporty And Fash Blawger

Jacket - Vintage from the Red Light Clothing Exchange, Shirt - Supre, Skirt - Zara, Shoes - Windsor Smith
Photographer - Lucy Alcorn

This is actually a look that I really liked on paper - casual on the top, party on the bottom, denim and neon, very "bloggery". Then I put it on, and realised that this doesn't suit me and has absolutely no relation to things that I would wear in real life. The reason I even own these shoes? I bought them for Melbourne Cup. The fact that I was even at Melbourne Cup in the first place makes zero sense, so these shoes make -10 sense on my feet.

So this post is really just to say you will never see anything like this again, because I don't dress like this ever and temporarily lost my mind.

I'm still going to put it up on though. Whatever. Eat me.

What's Black And White and Red All Over?

Skirt - ASOS, Sweater - Retrospec'd, Shirt - Ben Sherman, Shoes - Qupid from GoJane and my dumb face! I'm not great at riddles. This is the outfit I wore for my 24th birthday. I didn't fall over in these shoes ONCE and I was very proud. Also this cake was made for me:

Steve Buscemi putting on lipstick aside, this jumper is one of my favourite basic black items and I've never found anything to match it - lightweight and mid sleeve, so you can wear it all year, high neck so its perfect for collars, and cropped length so I can wear it with my collection of harry high pants and sally circle skirts.

Would Turn For - Anne-Catherine Frey

I like to think I have original style that is unique to me, but then I come across people like Anne-Catherine Frey who dress EXACTLY how I would want to - not a shoe, accessory or hair out of place - and I think maybe style can never really be original (as much as we'd like it to be).She even sounds like me:

"How do you get dressed in the morning?
Very quickly, because I always wake up too late. Very quick, very easy, very comfortable, very basic, but I never forget my signature shirt collar."

Favourite weekend activity? Sleeping!"
(from Telegraph UK)
A woman after my own heart. She makes me want to grow some eyebrows.

I'm usually a bit scared of yellow with my firey old mop of hair but this pastel suit seems to work.

Geometrics, Etsy Style

Left to right scrolling down: Portugese cropped jacket - They Roared Vintage, Guy Laroche jacket - The Stitchkeeper, East German vases - Love My Vintage Bazaar, 50's skirt - Shop Reinvintage, Jean Paul Gaultier top - The Stitchkeeper, Swimsuit - Alea's Closet, Periodic table poster - Hey Mom By Promise, Necklace - Gili Life Collection, Wine rack - Rust Belt Threads

This post should really just be called "Shit I Want From Etsy", and I guarantee there will be a lot more of them. I love Etsy. I sometimes wonder why I ever buy things that aren't from Etsy, to be honest. I'm going to say Etsy one more time.
