IRO - my - hero

my obsession seems to take a new lengths as the days go by. I have been meaning to share this fashionization awhile back but here a handful of looks from IRO's fall09 and spring10 lookbook.

i love the simple-ness, chic-ness, and slight edge to all these looks. push and pull with masculine and feminine ideas.

what i wear these days (literally sporting the grey jacket over and over again):

low-slung trousers say relaxed but still very put together.

what i will be wearing shortly (when weather permits):

shorts are flirty but not too tight that they are inappropriate.

what i aspire to pull off:

leather is sexy baby.

simple staples:

me and thigh-high anything goes hand in hand.

my spring inspirations:

neutral palates done well.

color theme?

my recent purchases: do you see a running theme?

i don't really know myself if it is a conscious decision or not when i shop but i have been obsessed with this beige/taupe color to complete my nude look.

my friends and family have actually identified me with this color as well. in january i received the chanel particuliere nail polish (pictured below) from my roommate AND my sister. both of them mentioned that it reminded them of me. i love the idea that people can be identified as colors. which color would you be?

you twisted trench!

of course every gal dreams of owning a beautiful classic piece that is MUST in any woman's closet (in my opinion, clearly): the burberry trench.

being a plain jane gal myself- i absolutely love the simple and classic cuts that burberry has consistantly provided to us throughout the years. but OH me, oh MY!! i am thoroughly impressed with the burberry prorsum spring '10 collection of a slight 'twist' (pun intended) on the classic tradition.

here are a few notable:
1. twist on bottom:
- elegantly tailored to look like a skirt and trench-in-one! to DIE for!

2. twisted shoulders:
- i absolutely LOVE the strong shoulders here, done with such feminine ideas of the nice pleats/layering + the softness in the purple color! definitely reminiscent of balmain but still very subtle while maintaining true to burberry. also highly coveted!

other fashionizing desires:

3. twisted nude dress:
- i always love a nude dress that is simple and makes you look fabulously naked without actually being naked. (reference- SATC "naked dress")

4. twisted skirt:
- this skirt is an art piece in itself. although the skirt may appear to have delicate drapery- it is very structured. i love the illusion it creates. you can pretty much pair it with any blouse, simple T, camis...etc etc. basically i

how it looked on the runway:

i applaud you mr. christopher bailey. you did good.
