Little Black (Asymmetrical) Dress

Went on a date w/ hubby awhile back and wore my fave Little Black (Asymmetrical) Dress

We were swinging by the mall and I had some socks I was considering returning, so please pardon the randomness in my hands. Hubby told me all the stuff I was holding would ruin the photo...he was right! I should have listened! lol

All the photos of my stay in New Zealand are up on my visual diary.

fashion crushes: Katie Gallagher & Jen Kao

Two of my favourite fashion loves at the minute are Katie Gallagher and Jen Kao. I wish we heard more about up and coming designers from other countries in the UK, but I suppose it makes sense to promote local talent, which is what inevitably happens. What's interesting about the - I guess you'd call it the global fashion industry - is that different styles have seeped into different markets. These two designers, but especially Katie, look more like they came out of the St Martin's machine than RISD (Rhode Island School of Design).

Katie Gallagher only showed her first full collection this year - S/S10 in September 09 - and it's pretty fabulous for a first collection: incredibly focused and beautifully finished. The thing I really love through is that she doesn't dabble in side seams. Which is cool. Her pieces don't have any side seams whatsoever, only curved seams that wrap and mimic the body. I mean, when was the last time you saw a straight edge on a woman's body. Exactly.

FC #2 is Jen Kao. She went to Parsons and NYU and launched her label in 2007 (the pics below are all from F/W09). The thing I like about the work of both girls is that the designs are sexy and fitted without being trashy and that they are easy and sheer enough for layering (which I suck at so anything that helps me in that direction = bonus points). Sort of powerful meets pretty and I like that. It's a good feeling when you get all dressed up and you know you look good, not slutty, just fierce, fierce, fierce.

Unarosa's Holiday Collection 2009

Unarosa's Holiday Collection for 2009 inspiration is all about the 80's trend. Boyfriend jackets, bold shoulders, shiny trousers - all made to relive the 80's fashion with a modern, classier look.

Neutral colors like gray, black, and white dominate the collection. With reasonable prices ranging from Php 665 for a basic top and a cocktail dress for Php1,590, pieces from Unarosa's holiday collection are must-haves in your closet this season.

80's Glam
An oversized off shoulder shirt and shiny tights complete the 80's look.

Classic Contrast
The masculine structure is styled with the classic shift dress. The feminine figure is draped with the jacket, giving the legs extra mileage for show.

Peaked Shoulders
The bold shoulder is emphasized with a bare neck. This look will get heads turning.

Modern Victorian
Define the torso, cinch the waist and boost the bosom with the modern corset. The bustier is layered over a white button down shirt, heightening the female figure.

Cold Shoulder
The classic shift is updated in this season's trend. The fabrication of this faux snakeskin gives this look an extra boost.

Power Layering
A sexy high waist matched with a woven shirt draped with a knit vest completes the look. Power layering spells corporate chic this season.

Curvy Duo
This is a classic 80's look. A loose top tucked neatly into a skinny trouser. This combination is both elegant and sexy.
