British Royal Mail has presented a collection of stamps which showcases the illustrated history of British fashion.  These stamps were unveiled in the year that Britain celebrates its Olympics and Jubilee year.

From the iconic Vivienne Westwood – harlequin dress that Supermodel, Naomi Campbell wore, to Zandra Rhodes gold ballgown, and a Hardy Amies suit from the forties, these stamps brought forth the best in British fashion !

Barbie & her Christian Louboutins !

Woah !  Wouldn’t you want these shoes designed for you too??

The master shoe designer – Christian Louboutin himself, created a collection just for Barbie ( so jeolous : P  ) The collection comes complete with his signature red soles, matching box and bag.  Sigh… Some women have it all.

My favourite will be the silver open-toe T strap heels and the red booties at the top !  Wished I had this collection of shoes for myself.

Look Taller Now!

Everyone wants to look taller, but not everybody dresses that way.  Here are some tips on how to look taller without wearing dangerously sky high heels.

1. If you’re on the petite side, avoid wearig chunky wide belts.  It cuts your body into sections and makes you look shorter than you already are.

2. Avoid large prints and knits.  Large scale designs can really dwarf a figure.  So, unless you’re intending to look flamboyant rather than taller, wear small prints insted.  Never wear large polka dots if you’re really small.

 

Featured above, from My Spirit Inc, is a tea dress in small dot print.  Fun yet not OTT .

3. Wear light colours.  Just like when painting a room, you use light colours to make the ceiling look higher.  Light colours dressing when used correctly, can create an illusion of being taller.

 

Featured above are apparel from Zara.  Not only do you look taller, light and breezy colours also make you look fresher and younger !

Fashion, Dolls, Fashion !

My first taste of fashion was my first Barbie at 6 years old.  Dressing her was a manic obsession and I could spend hours playing with my Barbie until my sister decapitated her …

Looking now at the Barbie Fashion Model Collection ( the most prestigious of all the Barbies ), I realise why one I could spend so much time over just a doll.  Its not just a doll, its a celebration of Fashion, Style & old Hollywood Glamour at its best

My picks of the BFMC :

1. Party Dress Barbie – in a frothy ivory party dress with full skirt.  Check out also the icy blue stiletto pumps and matching cropped jacket

2. Francie Fairchid – cousin of Barbie in 60s inspired styled shift dress.  Simply love Francie’s adorable, whimsical sense of fashion and style.

Must Haves! Maison Martin Margiela x H & M Collection

I love it when high fashion becomes affordable, don’t you?  Just looking at the latest H&M’s collaboration – Maison Martin Margiela will in no way blow your wallet away, or will it ? 

Some of my wardrobe must haves are the asymetrical dresses !

The H&M Red Asymetrical Dress I love …  But its once of those pieces that I’m not sure where to wear to ;P

Both H&M, Black Belted Dress and the Gold Metallic Asymetrical Dresses are pieces that I would wear for after office functions, cocktails.
