A Mini Sock Fashionista

28 May

Source: Who’s That Girl

If you didn’t read this last Sunday’s Style in the Sunday Times, then you missed a golden opportunity to appreciate a young fashionista in the making. Ophelia Horton is only 13 years old, but she’s started her own fashion blog “Who’s That Girl” which is not only amusing, but showcases a unique fashion perspective and writing style:

Some people are seriously lucky. They have a knack to stand out in the crowd like a (eye-) candy in a bunch of fruit…

The fact that she had incorporated over-the-knee socks into her ensemble caught my eye, but her quirky posts, brimming with personality, kept my attention (which is difficult to do). Kudos Ophelia!

Yuma Koshino: Spring/Summer 2012

19 Dec

Metallic sandals and colored socks? Somehow Yuma Koshino makes it work by adding pops of color to neutrals and mellow prints. I feel like she’s raided my grandmother’s closet and suddenly made it cool again.

I especially love these beige open-toe knee highs. Where can I get them? Perhaps they were just one of the designer’s flights of fancy, but if I can’t find them I’ll definitely be making them.

Welcome the Wet Look

19 Sep

The English autumn weather has struck with a vengeance and I’ve seen nothing but rain for days. I figure if I’m doomed to look doused, then I might as well make it work from a style perspective. Thus, my investigations into the “wet look” have uncovered these juicy finds.

Style Inspiration: Prabal Gurung Fall 2011

30 Aug

Yesterday Sarah Jessica Parker turned up at a press conference for her new movie, “I Don’t Know How She Does It,” in a cream and black number from Prabal Gurung’s Fall 2011 line.

It’s causing quite a stir in fashion circles and nobody can quite agree on whether it’s chic or unbecoming. However, love it or hate it, I’m more captivated by the use of bold colors, interesting visual textures and bandage legwear in his Fall 2011 runway show.

Here are some similar options online if you love the look:

Wildfox Knows How to Rock Our Socks for Fall

25 Aug

I was blown away by Wildfox Couture’s Fall 2011 Lookbook. Not only are the socks sexy and feminine, but they pulled their inspiration from vintage t-shirts, groupie allure and the romanticism of pure rock n’ roll. There’s something so playful, innocent, and yet extremely bad about these images. LOVE!

Two other non-sock images that I adored…
