I think she's ready

And this is what I did in LA! I styled this video featuring Iggy Azalea, First and Rich from FKi, and Diplo. It features pieces from Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, Rick Owens, Balmain, Preen, YSL, Helmut Lang and more. The whole experience was awesome, hilarious, and surreal.

The silly test is done but I'm now off to L.A. to style a music video! I'm very excited because a. I haven't been to L.A. in a grown-up peoples sense (ie. not to Disneyland) and b. I've never styled a music video before! 

Wish me luck, pray that my L.A. dress is indeed appropriately L.A., pray that my pale skin doesn't fry in the harsh California winter sun....

See you next Tuesday! California, here I come.

See Ya in a Bit

I'm taking an extended cat nap, if you will, while I prepare for the lovely standardized test that will allow me to become the profession which will allow me to buy a lot of nice shoes. So wish me luck and see you in February! 

ps. I'll still be inevitably posting fashion-related things on Twitter @seeshetweets

2011 Best Street Style

My foray into style critiquing continues with a list of the best dressed style seen on the street in 2011. The following women best embody the phrase "all the world's a stage...." and moreover, inspire me to not wear sweatpants every day.

Caroline Sieber, for her 21st century
version of the pantsuit
Elin Kling, for her sleek minimalism
Elisa Nalin, for these sequin pants
Hanne Gaby Odiele, for making pajama
pants and a kimono look badass
Miranda Kerr, for perfecting the
model - and mom - off-duty look
Frida Gustavasson, for looking chic and
comfortable at the same time
Sarah Rutson, for being the model business
woman in terms of style and success
Shala Monroque, for always having the
most incredible combinations of
accessories and colour
Julia Sarr-Jamois, for the neon and the 'fro

And finally, of course...

Anna Dello Russo, for her never-ending
originality and confidence

Please keep inspiring us in 2012 
All the normal people out there

2011's Best Dresses

Because I fashion myself a mix of Joan Rivers, Stacy London, and Steven Cojocaru, I feel that this gives me the authority to compile a list of the ten best dresses of the year. The only description that would do these dresses justice is beyond enviable (nipped waist could also apply). So here they are, in no particular order as that would require too much thinking for my brain, which is currently on vacation. Beautiful dresses (and the women who wore them), I salute you!

Kate Middleton in Alexander McQueen
Zoe Saldena in Vionnet
Kirsten Dunst in Derek Lam
Miranda Kerr in Peter Pilotto
Emma Stone in Calvin Klein
Diane Krueger in Jason Wu  
Mila Kunis in Alexander McQueen
Clémence Poésy in Chanel
Keira Knightly in Valentino
Kate Moss in Galliano

You're In: Work Onesie

If you're fortunate enough to work at a place with a liberal dress code such as I do, then an essential part of your work wardrobe should be the work onesie (work onesie [wurk wuhnsee]: a jumper that is acceptable for the work place). Work onesies offer the ultimate level of comfort without making one look like a total slob in front of one's boss. And they're perfect for days when you're a little under the weather (such as the day after the office Christmas party) or when you simply feel like not being productive. The onesie I found below is from Haltson Heritage and I got it at 80% off from the Bay back in the summer. It has seriously changed my life. I no longer have to resort to leggings when I want to be comfortable at work. And gone are the days when I turn to my lululemons as a travel outfit (yes, the work onesie also functions as a travel onesie). Work onesies are a serious investment piece. 

(please excuse the awkward posing below - I don't do this often - and focus on the shit that matters, that being the onesie)


The thing that one must remember is that not every onesie can be a work onesie. Strapless onesies and onesies with spaghetti straps are not acceptable unless the top is covered up with a cute cardigan or blazer. Also, remember that onesies look a lot better when paired with heeled shoes (so no one can argue that you're not putting in effort). I'm sure everyone would love to sport the work onesie that Virginie Courtin-Clarins was wearing the other day however, not everyone can afford Louis Vuitton. So here are more reasonable work onesies that I found on various sites.
