I think I’m a very bad fashion blogger because I don’t really understand the appeal of haute couture most of the time. I usually can’t be bothered when half the fashion blogging world is going mad crazy about New York Fashion Week/*insert random big city name here* Fashion Week. This is also probably why I prefer fashion blogs that don’t ramble on about inacessible pricey pieces that can’t really be worn off the runway (well they’re vintage-sided too) like Rhiannon from Liebemarlene.
Anyway here are 2 pieces for two high street labels that have caught my eye recently:
Penelope Cruz for Mango
I saw this picture all over the city area yesterday when I was out. I was mesmerised (well partly by Penelope Cruz and her lovely eyes). I love the rounded neckline and the little button at the top coupled with the plaid. Makes me think of those day dresses that were prevalent in the early ’40s and possibly ’30s during the depression years.
Babara Hulanicki for Topshop
I love the high neckline with the gathered bodice area, really makes me think of ’60s mod dresses. I love the fitted buttoned waist too (I’m such a sucker for cute button detailing) and the frilly skirt plus the soothing grey-ish purple (or purplish-grey) colour.
Ack, I really shouldn’t be drooling over stuff I’ll never be able to get ):
