My style icons #1

Kiernan Shipka

Kiernan Shipka is best known forplaying  Sally Draper on the Mad Men series. She golfs, she cooks and she sings. Her inspiration is none other than Grace Kelly. This 12 year old girl has more style than any adult I’ve ever seen. Whenever she steps out for a red carpet her outfits are gorgeous and are appropriate for her age; something that is very rare for a girl her age in  Hollywood and all over the world. I am in complete awe of her and how adorable she is.

At the Young Hollywood Awards 2012 wearing Miu Miu

At the Ralph Lauren Girls Collection wearing Ralp Lauren

At the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party wearing an Opening Ceremony dress

At the première of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’  She is absolutely perfect here

If these pictures haven’t convinced you then maybe this video of a peek into her wardrobe might. She is so eloquent, right now I would die to be her. So I guess you can say that this is a friendly reminder that Kiernan Shipka is 12 years old and dresses better than you.


Shoes #1

We all know Carrie loves shoes and it happens that I do too. So every once in a while I’ll be posting pictures of drop dead gorgeous shoes. To share my love for them.

It is a fact well known that Carrie Bradshaw loves her Manolo Blahnik’s and who can blame her? I for one love beyond life itself Sergio Rossi. I always find his shoes to be so feminine and elegant. I tend not to like platform shoes (more on that in another post) and really like any designer that do not or at least very rarely do them. Therefore I give you Sergio Rossi – Oniria

Leather sole, contrasting trim, ankle strap this is music to my ears. Aren’t they just perfect? If you are interested in getting your hands on these beauties you can find them here

Fashion faux pas: Bodycon skirts

When it comes to fashion, one of the things I hate the most is seeing women wearing bodycon skirts. I firmly believe that people who wear these kinds of skirts are taking the easy way out. It is in no way, shape or form a piece of clothing that can be deemed fashionable.

In my opinion I find them vulgar; yes I said it. I see tons of girls and young women wearing them at a bum skimming length. If I wanted to see your ‘derrières’ while on the tube or during my lunch break I’d ask.  I have to admit that I do own ONE bodycon skirt. I bought it a long time ago (I know that is not a valid excuse). I wore it a few times before deciding that really it was not for me and definitely not worth the hype.

I do not understand women who wear them, and if you do please help me to understand. Where is the fun in wearing something so tight and short? And even more important, where is the class? You have to let some things to the imagination ladies.

What is strange is that I don’t mind bodycon dresses. I even think that for clubbing they are the best things to wear. But the skirts just make me cringe. Maybe because of the way people wear it. In any case, bodycon skirts are a no-no in my books. What about you?
