Chloe Sevigny is arguably the ultimate cool-girl icon.  She’s worked with some of the most defining fashion labels of our time and her eclectic style has transformed and matured in the public eye over the years - yet she has always stayed true to herself.  I really love the collaborations she’s done (and still doing) with Opening Ceremony, but I think my favourite ‘phase’ of hers is still her brief flirt as creative director at Imitation of Christ – back then she really was my Numero Uno style icon.

Everyone has at least one fashion phase in their life they’d rather forget, but it seems this girl was simply born into cool, even in her humble beginnings as a fashion intern at Sassy magazine – how adorable is she?  Click image to enlarge.

Perhaps most endearing of all, however, is that despite all her fame, she’s still credited by many as one of the most down-to-earth girls in fashion.

I've made a new friend.....

...she sleeps in a bed of chiffon I made her.

I've been fascinated with geometric shapes and patterns since I was a kid, and it seems this love only gets stronger with age...  

Geometric prints and silhouettes have enjoyed a spotlight in fashion in recent years, spearheaded by the ethnic/boho trends and architectural/futuristic cuts and tailoring.

Alyson Fox is an illustrator that satiates my appetite for colourful geometric patterns.  Don't you just wanna take a big bite out of these?  Yummy~

Just when you were thinking how criminal it is that these beautiful patterns can't be worn to adorn the body...Alyson teamed up with jeweller Verabel - famed for their revamped vintage lockets - to create the Verabel x Fox range of patterned lockets.  I want <3

Flights of Fancy

A couple of days ago I saw photos of Katy Perry sporting a gorgeous swan print dress.  Loving the dreamy print and colours!  Turns out the dress is by none other than the queen of fairytale creatures - Emma Cook.

Most of the time KP gets it pretty wrong, but credit must be due when she pulls a gem like this.  Plus, lest we forget, she was the lass spotted in Risto's lightning kaftan!

Swans have been quite the fashion muse of late so it seems - Hailee Steinfeld in Miu Miu SS11, Florence Welch in Givenchy Haute Couture, and of course the ultimate swan queen Bjork - rocking Marjan Pejoski's swan dress at the 2001 Grammy's.  I'll never forget this adorable perfection is topped off with her egg-shaped clutch!  Bless~

Mike Gonzalez

Wait, why hasn’t this guy blown up already?!   

Sure, he may have been one half of Mike & Chris, but out on his own he's sure proven his immense talent with his first two absolutely smokin’ collections. The current spring collection is no less stellar.

Hot. Wearable. YES. 

The Great Firewall of China has upped its game big time amid the recent uprisings - meaning my trusty VPN service WiTopia, whom has served me so well over the past few years (heart you), has fallen victim as their last gateway was blocked last week.

This means I've been locked out of my blog (amongst other things) since my last post, until now - thank you Freegate! You see, blogging is quite the delicate operation round these ways.

Ah well, just another day in Middle Country...

My transformation into a warrior princess is complete.

Actually, my armoury could do with the addition of this Pamela Love cuff...

...and a manicure.

I love me a good sky, cloud, planet, star, and pretty much every and all astronomical wonders.

Greek Sky is a fantastic site featuring loads of stunning images and a dynamic forum offering plenty inspiration.

As if the title image isn't inspired enough...

This next curious image was borne from the site's forum and is a total labour of love - the photographer painstakingly camped out for 24 hours straight and composed this image from over 500 photos.

Vitamin C

Overdosing on this vitamin never hurt anyone, or so I've heard. Go on and prescribe me a potent dose then, fashion week!


Making turtlenecks sexy is no easy task, my friend.

Homeboy's the total darling of fashion right now - I certainly can't argue with pieces this wearable...

Pretty much magic wand fail - though somehow this oddly awesome deconstruction offsets the hyper-polished look well.

Oily stickers much?!  My mind is blown.
