Underwater Wonderland

So if you're one of my regular followers, you've probably noticed by now that I'm just a tad obsessed with all things Chanel. I know, I know, how cliche Evana, be more original - but it's Chanel! What's not to love? Karl Lagerfeld is an amazing designer, and one of my biggest fashion inspirations. And with a collection as fabulous as the new 2012 Spring Summer Ready-to-Wear, it's easy to see why.
The scene was set in Paris, the city of fashion, on a stunning recreation of the ocean floor; an immaculate white landscape of seaweed, stingrays, sharks and shells, creating an optimistic, bright and fresh idea of fashion, rather than the desolate, post-apocalyptic feel of previous collections. It was a masterpiece: deceptively simple but never dull. Youthful and light silhouettes floated down the runway, some looks maintaining the luxurious air of the house's classical, untouchable designs, others being the very image of elegance without pretension.

The collection is obviously an extensive one, so I'm just going to include my favourites. To see the collection in its entirety, click here. Leave me a comment below with your thoughts on the collection, your favourite outfit/s, whatever! Oh, and Happy Halloween everyone!

Lazy Sunday/Inspo Post

It seems that in the little rose-tinted bubble that is my life that Sundays are the only day where it is acceptable to walk out the door with bed-hair, flats and tights, and drape yourself in an oversized sweater. It's an amazing feeling, really - I feel so at ease and relaxed. So just a quick blog post today, bit of inspiration as well if you like, and see you tomorrow!

A (Fashion) Addict's Dream

At my now much-loved school (never thought I'd be saying those two words so close together), all year 10 students have a week near the end of the year to take up work experience at a business in your area of interest. Obviously we have to organise it ourselves, but thanks to my just-discovered supposed family connections, I landed a week at Shop Til You Drop Magazine!!!

So naturally, any self-respecting fashionista is going to want to look her best for the job of her dreams, even if it's only for a week. So I've been tossing up some ideas and looking to the experts for inspiration. This is what I found. x
