FashionAloha from Hawai’i! Day 3: Sunset Beach

Dear Diary,

Today we ventured over to the North Shore of O’ahu to see what Sunset Beach was all about while a set was breaking. The waves were rolling in so strong that you couldn’t get in the water unless you had a surf board, and we watched at least one person break a board in the first half hour of being there.

Although it was dangerous — the waves are crashing over coral reefs — there were tons of surfers out. It was pretty awesome watching a legendary surf spot come to life!

Afterwards, we headed home to relax and chill in the hammocks around my sister’s house. Here are some pictures of the girls lounging about in one of our favorite Collective Concepts tops, cute vintage clothes, and Claire Fong fringe earrings (once again)!

FashionAloha From Hawai’i! Day 2: Daytime Dreamin’

 Dear Diary,

This is the second update of my five-day visual fashion diary in the sun of O’ahu, Hawai’i, and I’m LOVIN’ every second of it. Today we mixed chains, gladiator sandals, leopard prints, and even a gold leaf crown with (yes, yet again) Claire Fong earrings for original but yet totally obtainable style.

In the first shot, on Sierra, we have cut-off shorts with top and necklaces designed by myself. To recreate this look, check out the Guard Rail Denim Shorts (pic below). These shorts would pair nicely with any patterned and textured top, as well as with any of your favorite sandals.

Molly’s outfit is all about the Melted Heart Dress (pic below), topped with a few well-chosen accessories. Remember to mix and match prints with textures such as ripped jeans, and top it off with chains in gold for an original masterpiece of style!

FashionModel Off Duty: Frida Gustavsson

I want to introduce you to one of my favorite up-and-coming models: Frida Gustavsson. This 17-year-old, 5’11” Stockholm native is a self-proclaimed geek, but is a natural on both the runway and on film. In January, she walked for Valentino, Armani Privé, Elie Saab, Christian Dior, and Chanel in spring couture shows in Paris.

Frida is not only a force on the runway, but also off. Below are some example of her laid back, but chic, style.

FashionI Wanna Be A Chanel SNOW BUNNY!

As the scrims rolled up and revealed the Chanel girls on an iceberg in the center of the Grand Palais in Paris I can only imagine the sound of gasps echoing throughout the building. In a dream, Karl Lagerfeld envisioned his Fall 2010 collection shown on models walking through melting ice caps and, as if in a dream, the spectators in Paris watched as ice caps melted around a brilliant collection of clothes.

Karl Lagerfeld has put his Chanel snow bunnies smack dab in the middle of of the global warming conversation. Literally, as the models were walking through the ice caps they were melting and water was collecting on the cat walk. As they walked through the water getting their faux fur boots (yes I did say faux) wetter and wetter.

This is a very blatant reminder that yes things are heating up and melting away. In the meantime dressing for warmth couldn’t get more fun than these chunky layered furlicious outfits. As for innovation, Lagerfeld took knitwear to a new level, especially in the last white tulle chiffon knit gowns.

FashionFashion Factory: Viktor & Rolf

Viktor & Rolf have finally picked up where their Russian Matryoshka Doll inspired collection left off years ago. In that collection a model came out in an outfit that like a Russian doll that got smaller and smaller. This time an older model and a fashion legend, Kristen McMenamy, came out as if in a fashion show factory and was un-wrapped or un-dressed in order to dress the models coming out onto the catwalk.

The clothes were mostly spectacle and the show was all about Viktor & Rolf as they took visual precedence, over even the models. However, it was still a great show and reflected the importance of the assembly line and versatility in the production of modern fashion.
