HOT NEW FIND: Charlotte Olympia’s #TimePieceClutch

I have always had this obsession with time piece / clock pendants & necklaces, but here’s something new… a time piece clutch by Charlotte Olympia.

As I was browsing through netaporter.com I encountered this little baby:

Yes it is definitely a little out there and quite the statement piece. But should work well if you the ‘understated head-turner’ type.

Would you wear this clutch? Want to know your thoughts!

Live to Dye

My hair had been black/dark brown for years and I wanted to change my look for 2013 without having to compromise on my hair length. So I thought who better than Nabila to consult with.

I decided that I wanted this ‘dip dye’ thing. Not only because it’s hot right now but also because it can just grow out and I can easily chop the tips if it’s a disaster 😛

Here are a few pics of the process and then the final look.

This is where my hair was stripped because I had dark hair dye in it previously.

Here is the final look with a brown on the overall head and the color “milkshake” at the tips (about 4 to 5 inches)

Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Trends

Pleats Don’t Go

Pleats were quite the hit on the runways in 2011 and this season they continue to stay on the runway as a hot trend.

Orange Ya Glad?

Different hues of orange and tangerines have been appearing on a lot of major runways shows of ss 2012.

Block It Like It’s Hot

For those of you who don’t know the exact meaning of color blocking… it’s when an outfit or garment is composed with various solid blocks of colored fabric. Whether it’s monochromatic or with contrasting colors, color blocking is a hot trend this season.

Prints Charming

In addition to native and tribal prints, bold futuristic prints are also big this spring/summer.

A Tribute to the Iconic Style of the King of Pop: Michael Jackson

Not only did he produce hits that were larger than life, but also influenced millions of young children and adults with his unique sense of style that truly made him an icon.

He in fact was the “Man in the Mirror”, because every child, woman and man saw or wanted to see Michael in them, when they looked in the mirror.

For me his style choices always communicated a sense of child-like courage, regalness, rebeliousness, responsibility and in some ways almost a bitter sense of being a show man to the world and suppressing his own desires.

Everything he did became a movement in itself. Below are some of his iconic looks that really made Michael Jackson a style icon and drove the masses crazy.

Somewhat Disappointing:The Future of Fashion: Celebrating Five Years of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund – Fashion at the Park, Dallas, Texas

This was my first time attending Fashion at the Park (kinda like Fashion week for Dallas, happens every year at North Park Center,) so I did expect some good things because their marketing design, brand image and caliber of sponsors seemed very high.

This show the 8pm Saturday show.

“A runway fashion show to celebrate five years of the Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Fashion Fund – the fashion show will feature multiple designers who have been lauded as award finalists and featured in Vogue, including Doo.Ri, Phillip Lim, Michael Bastian, Marchesa, Thakoon and Peter Som.
Personal appearances include Marchesa designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, Thakoon Panichgul and Peter Som.”

The vibe was decent. They were heavily staffed. Show started with a pretty cool video about the struggling fashion designers and how CFDA gives them guidance and a jumpstart so they can run a successful business. However when the models started strutting out with the first designers collection, I kinda had the “is this it?” empty feeling hoping that the show would progress to blow me away. It didnt.

The models weren’t terrible, but not impressive (considering this is one of the biggest fashion events that takes place every year in dallas). Some of them had awkward walks. I did spot Chantal from America’s Next Top Model (cycle 9) which was pretty cool. But she happened to blend in pretty well with the rest of the rigid and awkward (and not in a good high fashion kind of way) models.

I mean… I know this is supposedly “high fashion” and the models have to have a pretty straightforward walk devoid of any extra “ooomph” but not to the point where they are making the designer’s garments look like sweats.

Speaking of the designers, my favorites were Marchesa and Philip Lim. That being said I didn’t really see anything that would bring out the “ooohs and aaahs” from me. These are supposed to be some promising designers with a bright future, but the clothes lacked opulence and class and just the overall X factor.

Even the runway shows and collections I have seen come from countries like Pakistan and India are far more impressive. Except they don’t get to have the formal training and academic edge like these designers do, and most of their work doesn’t get seen in the international market.

I mean yes most of this seemed like ready to wear and it wasn’t supposed to be overly intricate couture stuff, but it was missing something!

Again my opinion of the collections might be clouded because of the overall feel of the show with consisted of a not too impressive stage setup, OK models, and very commercial music!

To be fair, I’ll attend more of these to see if this was a one off thing or most of these Fashion at the Park shows happen to lack that allure that I was expecting to see.

But I must say, the appetizers were great, i thoroughly enjoyed the lamb and fish cones. And the cocktail servers quick and friendly.

I would definitely go again!
