Flashes of neon pink become interlaced with more and more dramatic black as this beauty shoot by Kendra Storm Rae (kendrarae.com) wears on. The makeup artistry by Aennikin (aennikin.de) conveys, visually, the shoot’s title: Sad Eyes, Dark Mind. Even so, we’re captivated by this variation on coloured liquid liner, the pairing of pink and black on both lids and lashes proving to be showstopping.
Leave it to an accessory brand that’s inspired by artists like Picasso, Mondrian and Pollock to come up with a shoe collection that leaves women drooling. We all love our shoes: by putting on a lovely pair of shoes, you change your entire look and Paris-based brand Aperlai knows this. Staying true to the brand’s identity, designer Alessandra Lanvin has come up with a collection…

The New Year is upon us - where did the time go? One more reason to celebrate with friends and loved ones, and one more reason to dress up and look fabulous. I'm sure you have all found your dresses already but I just passed by the store window of BCBG the other day. BCBG has always attracted me, there is something simple and ethereal about their dresses, and their cutting (for me at least, is superb).
Their dresses make you feel almost old hollywood glam or simply modern chic. I know they're rather simple, definitely something you've seen before, but talk about excellent draping! I don't know, there's something about them that makes me fall in love.
Love the velvet bodice of this dress!
This dress is actually much more beautiful in person.
Aughhh...I need to get this - look at that sleeve detail!
So simple, so lovely (especially the colour). Hm, I will advise you not to wear a headband that the model demonstrates...
Ok, kind of generic I know, princess cut blah blah blah. But the material! And a colour that would look great on all skin tones.
What are you doing for New Year's? &equally important, what will you be wearing?
Contrary to popular belief...Monday, March 23, 2009 9:05 PMHG and I did not get into a fight and decided to stop working together on I am Fashion and started our own blogs instead. (Even our mutual friends wondered about it!) We still email each other daily about the intricate details of our lives and random thoughts we have, and feel extremely empty when the other is away and has no access to the internet. When I freak out, she is the first person I call and she is still my maid of honor when I fantasize about my wedding. Our reasons for closing down I am Fashion still stands, though I do think that my later rationalization of it in this blog is a better articulation of how we feel.As for us continuing to blog even more regularly than before, I attribute it to the "newness" of our blogs. Starting a new blog is like starting a relationship. At the beginning everything is new and exciting as you get to know the other person and watch your relationship grow and mature. Every up and every down is a significant moment. Then the honeymoon phase eventually wears off and you reach a happy medium, where your relationship becomes a part of your daily life. With any luck, you will live happily ever after in this state with a few surprises here and there to spice up the norm. If not, your relationship will wane and you grow apart, eventually deciding that you are both better off parting ways.Clearly I'm in the honeymoon phase. We are starting to explore new things together, trying to figure out what works best for the both of us. Every new post is an adventure. Every comment and email is exciting. I want to spend every moment of everyday with it, checking on its progress i.e. stalking the traffic, the incoming and outgoing links etc. It's an exhilarating feeling that I'd almost forgotten about!Analogy aside, it is heartwarming to read everyone's encouraging comments and to know that we were able to leave a small footprint on some people's lives. We appreciate your support and remember that we've not left the blogging world for good. Come visit us some time at our new blogs -(Find the links to our new blogs in the post below). We miss you guys!
Blake Lively. Eva Mendes. Taylor Swift. Rihanna....just to drop a few names. Walter Baker's stunning styles have been spotted on all these leading ladies. His modern twist on classics are a cunning mix of sophistication and sass, making them regular headliners in magazines like InStyle, Bazaar, Elle, and Marie Claire. Add streetwise to the list of adjectives, as his Fall 2012 collection spotlights leather and leather detailing (strengthening a trend that began last fall with leather sleeves and all-leather pieces). Be wowed by Baker's mixed media moto jackets, leather-lapel blazers, croco-embossed trenches, and mod mini dresses detailed with leather cuffs and panels. Any one of these pieces has the power to create celebrity-worthy style on your street:
1. Walter Baker Heather Jacket: I have to say I love this jacket...and not just because of it's name. Skinny leather lapels and cuffs edge this menswear-inspired blazer. Done up in a rich emerald green, this blazer styles well over anything from a trouser and button-up to a color-drenched print dress. Jewel tones are the perfect way to embrace the cool autumn weather and transition easily into a winter wardrobe.
2. Walter Baker Patricia Jacket: Lovely in leather. This versatile blazer has a long slim body, fitted sleeves, and skinny lapels for a feminine take on a borrowed-from-the-boys blazer. Layer over a sheath dress for work, a skinny jean for play, and a mini dress for afterhours.
3. Walter Baker Susan Trench: As seen on set. Blake Lively wore this croco-embossed trench on the set of Gossip Girl...and boy, did it start some gossip. Nab this mix of class and sass for your very own. Its luxurious chocolate brown leather styles well over any autumn look, from work to weekend. Layer on a colorful scarf like Blake did to bring out the rich tones of this coat.
4. Walter Baker Cassi Print Dress: Fiery orange is tempered by cool blue and black and hints of crimson and mint. Baker's autumn plume print is not only fall-worthy, it's also drop-dead gorgeous. This stunning dress balances its mini skirt with a loosely-fitted blouse top and black leather cuffs. Pair with any black heel or dress it down with black tights and brown boots.
5. Walter Baker Cozy Sweater: Leather-less, yes, but this cozy knit is the perfect contrast to straightforward leather pieces like a pleated skirt or leather legging. Almost an ombre fade, this creamy knit has variegated stripes in buttery camel and soft cocoa brown. Cropped front with longer back and side zip.
6. Walter Baker Yasmin Coat: Mixed media. Shearling, leather, and olive green fatigue come together in one luxe jacket. Pair it back to leather leggings and combat boots for Rihanna styling or back to denim skinnies for a more streetworthy look. Detailed with a self belt and combat hardware.
7. Walter Baker Rachelle Dress: Soft gray is accented by beige leather panels on this marvelous mini dress. Short square sleeves and a straight-lined body make this mini dress extremely mod. Pair back to pumps or booties, tights and boots or sky-high stilettos, depending on the occasion.
