Label: Alexander McQueen Collection: Spring Ready-to-wear 2013 Designer: Sarah Burton Trend: Bees and Honeycombs
The honeycomb motif is prominent throughout the whole fashion show; with circular or near-mosaic patterns/designs. A rather interesting yet innovative print! I mean, who would have thought of honeycombs on clothes?!
The pops of red color and near-to floral prints bring out the oriental feel of the outfit. Then, the belt gives shape to the model; and where the near-peplum feature gives the model even more shape hence accentuating her small waist.
Modernized Victorian Court dresses
I call these modernized Victorian court dresses due to its change in positioning of the different structures. For example, the 'corset' as a statement belt being worn outside of the outfit rather than as an undergarment. And the beautiful translucent material of the bottom is simply gorgeous, which shows the beautiful legs of the models!
Hey fashionistas! Sorry for not posting for such a long time, but I'm back with a new series: SHOE SERIES I will be picking new shoes for every post for this series, and create an outfit based on that pair of shoe! I hope you will enjoy this series! And we shall kick off this series with the "French-tip heels"! What are French-tip heels? They are high-heeled shoes that feature a front region that is of a different shade of color, mostly contrasting color of the other parts of the shoe. It is just like a french-nail! I think it is a very clever design as it creates structure to whatever you wear. It also creates interest especially if the 'french-tip' is of a very shocking or surprising color, like neon colors! Alright, let's get on to the outfit I created for a french-tip heel.
This outfit is built upon the color combination of beige and black, it is suitable for work and of course, formal events. Shoe featured by Gianvito Rossi That's all lovelies!

The best thing about www.thedarkhorse.com.au is the service. Not only do they gift box every item you purchase, no matter how big or small, the site offer a take home lay-by service for purchases over $100.
'Lay-by in the traditional sense meant you have to wait weeks before the item is paid off, the you finally get to bring it home,' explained Aleen Apanian, founder of the site, 'A lot of the times customers will forget about their lay-bys, or lose excitement of their purchase. My take home lay-by means you can pay off your purchase while you wear it, and it is a more budget conscious way of owning a special piece of jewellery.'
Upon check out, the customer pays a 30% deposit, with the remainder of the purchase amount to be paid over a 4 week period. said Apanian, 'As well as providing service of convenience, the take home lay-by system is about building a trusting relationship between my customers and I. I want to let them know they can enjoy their purchase now and pay me back later, like any good friend would!'
