Stylesightings 7

It should go without saying how utterly obsessed I am with this girl’s ensemble.

For one, she is absolutely stunning – the effortless beauty that simply radiates from her entirety is inimitable, a look that every woman seeks but not every one can successfully execute. The combination of the individual elements is impeccable in that nonchalant way; again, effortless but done. The floral corset is such a lovely way to add color and bring out the inner coquette sans the potential misunderstanding that you are, in fact, not a stripper. And paired with high-waisted, tailored paperbag shorts?  G e n i u s .

I loves it. Yes. I love it so much that proper grammar’s inability to express the full extent of this obsession is replaced with ill grammar. It works. For me.

Did I mention that I die at the shoes? I have been looking for a pair of lace-up/buckle-up wedges and/or heels, a bit like the Chloe for Opening Ceremony ones (that everyone but I seems to own, *pouty face*) – if any of you do have suggestions, do leave them in the comments! Extra kisses for you, darlings!

ATTN: I do apologize profusely for any unanswered emails – it will always be the excuse: sadly, I do not have enough time to answer every single “what to wear” request, so do look into the archives to see if your question is repetitive! I spend half the day dancing, the other half working on projects/summer work/college apps/dying of exhaustion ):  I do wish I could answer each and every one, but please understand that though I love this blog & you darling readers so so much, I do have prior commitments and priorities that rank above this. Understand that I am not ignoring you, I simply have too full of a plate at the moment. From here on forthward I will only be taking about 1 – 2 requests per month.

I do hope you understand – I am simply overwhelmed at the moment with the number of requests flooding in (I am very much flattered though!) in addition to the incoming year’s work! Thanks loves (:

    I find myself adoring the juxtaposition between girly and grunge contributed by the floral bustier. The wispy locks framing the face are also quite inspired. Love! 🙂

    Hey darling, how are you??
    Wow – that outfit is fantastic – and the girl looks like she could be related to Scarlett Johannson 😉
    Coming to the Chloé Sevigny for OC boots – Jeffrey Campbell did some gorgeous shoes, very similar. Caroline Feber was/is wearing them. Do you know her blog?
    Here is a direct picture link:

    The leather jacket is indeed very fall and the painted floral corset reminds me of Dior’s Spring Couture collection.

    Love that juxtaposition!


  22. 25 August 2009 2:25 pm
