Ok so I am addicted to Pinterest. If you don’t know what it is look it up, it’s like an online scrap-book of inspiration. So I am toying with the idea of having a weekly or fortnightly pins favourites. Who knows maybe it might become a regular feature.
To the point, from pinning a pair of shoes that caught my eye. Purely because they had a pair of eyes on them I found out all about Charlotte Olympia. Specialising in shoes and accessories, I was floored by her bright patterns and designs. To pick a mere product was difficult but these I couldn’t ignore. She has done a collection of flats which represent each zodiac sign, and another featuring the Chinese zodiac signs. The ones I picked are called Birthday shoes Snake. As I was born the year of the snake. The elegant design matched with the colours and accent of the snake make them my new wish list of shoes.
I am totally loving the vibrant colours, patterns and texture of style at the minute. This next image I got from Fashion gone rogue. It shows images of Melanie Werner in a shoot for Grazia Germany, shot in Rio de Janeiro. I love the mismatch of clashing prints here. It’s giving me ideas. Also take a look at that view, with the Christ the Redeemer statue in the distant. Take me to Rio now please.
These two come from the Harpers Bazaar site, showcasing street style from the New York fashion week. Just look at all the texture and bold patterns. I am totally in envy of the cubed check coat and the cut out polka dot skirt. Wish list please.
I can’t really talk about pattern and texture without putting up an image of Olivia Palermo. This is an outfit she wore during New York Fashion week which was featured on Instyle look of the day. This outfit is crazy. In a good way. All that’s really missing is some tartan.. I’m kidding. I love the sweet polka dot top, and the bright pink Delvaux Tempête Cardinal tote. It just an awesome outfit.
Ok so I know what your thinking, very fashion orientated this time..yes yes they are, what can I say with the Fashion weeks now pretty much over, the amount of images that are just filling my brain are endless, I am in love with the new collections and style trends which are forming. So yeah just a tad fashion orientated.
But to the image.I am just in love with this, the stripes the pose, the hair, that BAG. the Chanel bag that has been on my wishlist forever. Everything is working for me. See the other images here. Carine Roitfeld gives the Chanel 2.55 bag multiple personalities.
