onesie wonder...

I love this photo of Dorothea Barth-Jörgensen and Anna de Rijk, what with their youthful charm and exuberance... but in all honesty, I'm mostly drawn to Anna's jumpsuit. I love the fit, print, and effortless cool that it embodies. Paired with vintage shoes, bag and belt, this certainly does a cool outfit make...

Does Kate Moss ever look anything short of amazing? Seriously...

fashion adventurer...

And for my latest blog installment, conveniently dubbed fashion adventurer, I would like to give props to this fine lady for her considerable fashion balls. After all, how many twenty-somethings do you know that can rock a vintage oversized jacket quite like this? Not to mention those rad leopard shorts of hers, which give her look on-trend appeal. Add a white tee, brown flats and a basic bag, and you've got yourself a look to be reckoned with...

Italians do it better...

From fitted suits and crisp collars, all the way to luxurious loafers, Italian men know a thing or two about style... Mama mia!

outfit envy...

Can you say fashion feat five times fast? I bet this girl can... I love everything about her look, from her fitted white blazer and soft scalloped shorts, to her wicked anchor necklace and ridiculously cool platforms. And with cute bangs and a winning smile to boot, this girl has garnered some major outfit envy in my book...

How many people do you know of that could rock leather pants, an oversized acid wash jacket and leopard print wedges? Take a moment and try to answer honestly... Yup, that's what I thought- I don't know any either. Props to you Marianne; you're an inspiration to us all...

super chic...

I heart these photos of Yasmin Sewell, Vogue blogger extraordinaire and Chief Creative Consultant for Liberty of London... I like the whole androgynous vibe she has going on, what with her tailored coat and crisp shirt cleverly paired with a billowing skirt, flower adorned gloves and pretty little purse. I think she looks amazing here, hair and makeup done to perfection, with an air of sophistication and femininity about her... wouldn't you agree, mes amies?

seeing double...

Ok, I know I literally just posted on Hanneli, but this photo is simply too good to pass up! I'm completely in love with her vintage cut-out denim bodysuit (yes, bodysuit) and how she paired it with vintage jean shorts. Not to mention her brown belt which finishes the look, giving her casual duds a slightly more polished appearance. Say what you will friends, but personally I would like to think of this ensemble as something of a chic nod to the "Canadian tuxedo" in all of its two-tone indigo glory...

she's got the look...

I love this look on Hanneli Mustaparta, found on her fabulously inspirational blog, It screams powerhouse woman to me, evoking a sense of nostalgia for the 90's supermodel in all of her over-the-top glory. Here Hanneli rocks a self made turban, which she expertly concocted from a Zara Scarf, an oh so coveted Alexander Wang bra top, Acne shorts topped with a vintage belt, and a wicked Zara blazer. Finishing her look with a fierce pair of Persol shades, Hanneli looks every bit the part of a fashion blogger, effortlessly embodying what it means to be cool and in-the-know. I guess that's why she herself is photographed just as much as her uber chic blog subjects are...

damn, girl!

I came across this pic whilst checking out the fashionably fierce Karen Blanchard's blog, Where Did U Get That, and simply haaad to post this pic. I'm loving all of these bags, from her Alexander Wang leopard print drawstring, to her vintage fringe cross-body, and impressive DIY studded bag that was a thrift store find no less! Purses are pretty much my Achilles tendon of accessories, and having accumulated far more bags than I could ever store, I always feel bad coveting new ones... That said, I shouldn't feel bad for simply appreciating other people's collections, right?

outfit envy...

I have to give the lovely lady of Fashion Chalet props for this one... I love how she chose to mix prints here, pairing a tie dye skirt with a spattered top for a fresh, au courant look. Topping things off with a peacock-print headscarf (no pun intended) and anchoring the look with those bad-ass heels of hers, our little muse clearly knows a thing or two about mixing and matching. Now if only it came so naturally to the rest of us...
