When going through Sasha Pivovarova's portfolio on, I fell in love with the striking colours in these two recent editorials in which Sasha has starred in.

This first editorial - for Italian Vogue March 2010 - I definitely think could have easily been inspired by the 1980's American comedy horror fantasy film Beetlejuice, that was directed by Tim Burton no less!!!
Is Sasha supposed to be reminiscent of what Beetlejuices wife would have looked like perhaps???

I just love love love the styling in this editorial for Interviews February 2010 issue. It's like they let a group of 30 kids run riot on this shoot with a huge box of Paper & Crayola. The outcome being a magical mix of colour, jagged edges with a bit of sparkle.
Who ever knew that graffiti & huge fake jewels could look so good!!!
Won't you agree?

If you fancy giving your dwindling, worn-to-death brogues a much needed makeover, why not get all creative & give them a second lease of life by embellishing them with anything from studs to rhinestones which you can pick up in any arts & craft shops. 

If you are not feeling that adventurous you could even just spray paint them a different colour - I sprayed my, not so white anymore, brogues a metallic silver - & voila you've got yourself a brand new pair of shoes  xoxo

Part II

In March just gone I had posted the images from Alexander McQueens last ever collection which was revealed to only a select group of editors in an ornate Parisian salon. 
The collection was Amazing & wait until you see these.....
Here are the close-up images of his shoe & handbag collection for Fall 2010 & they are just breathtakingly beautiful!!!
The details - especially in the shoes - are monumental. 
I just had to share these images with you, from the wing-embroidered & gold spike/jewel embellished platform sandals to his 'signature' skull dark brown leather bag - they are literally a work of art. 
I can only imagine the waiting list!!!!

A treat from the fantastic world of the blogosphere xoxo 

I am currently loving the fashion blog SRC783 by Christina Dietze (model/blogger) from Melbourne, where one of my good buddies has recently just resided to - We miss you Linda xx

Anyway back to the post at hand, is a blog that I am very much liking at the mo with an abundance of style musings and pretty pictures from the Aussie girl. 
Visit this site for pretty pictures and inspirations.

I came across this gem of a blog a couple of months ago & immediately fell head over heels in love with these extremely suave & stylish gentlemenStreet Etiquette is comprised of two halves - Joshua Kissi & Travis Gumbs - whom reside in the urban world of NYC. 

As quoted on their website their style inspiration mainly comes from, "our love for HipHop, Hood Art (graffiti) and most of all our love for incorporating different styles of fashion into our urban style."
In November last, their blog was given the official nod from the fashion world by receiving the lucrative "Best Men's Style Blog" by the Guardian UK.
And well deserved I say!!!
