Anne Fontaine

My new look on lookbook.nu was taken this summer in Paris at LaDuree on the Champs Elysee. I sported my new Anne Fontaine ruffle top and high waisted tap shorts from American Apparel. I adore designer Anne Fontaine for her ability to create gorgeous pieces for women of all ages. Myself , my mom and even my little Parisian grandmother could all wear her designs. Her signature piece is the white blouse, which she carries in all forms in her many stores.

Best Tim Burton Representation
Atwood_bonham
no shocker really, anyone associated with Tim Burton usually ends up on the worst dressed. They usually love adding insult to injury though, with "gloves" (more like pantyhose) and brit inspired garter belts??

Color me confused

I recently discovered Gilly Hicks, originally from Sydney, now owned by Abercrombie and Fitch. The store is so precious and solely geared towards women. The store layout is as dark and confusing as Hollister , but so much more fun and he blaring ultra-girly songs will make any boyfriend tagging along feel like the ultimate pansy. So round up your best girlfriends and head to Gilly Hicks asap!! They carry uber-cute bathing suits, sundresses, cardigans and a ton of lingerie !
My look below features a hot pink cardie and floral sundress from Gilly Hicks, Faux-croc bag from Henri Bendel, bow necklace from Tiffany &co, bow sandals from Zara and a fierce spiked ring from Francesca's.

                           The first two looks struck me blind, did they really have to be on stage at the same time? It made it so much worse! I guess its like a bandaid , just get it all out at the same time! Florence and the Machine's Givenchy gown really isnt that bad, I just feel it had such potential and it flopped!
