Bazaar Report aw08 - Part 2

I'm really glad that many of you have enjoyed reading this Bazaar Report. Therefore, ready, steady, Part 2!

Long & Narrow can create a timeless evening look! Look at this sensual Bottega Veneta below! Together with a loose hair bun and a statement bangle, I will put on some 1930s elegant gowns in rich luminous ink colour! I'm thinking about deep purple or navy in silk satin - the sexy lighting will reflect on your amazing dress and create that speechless silhouette! Of course, I need to fix a serious date first....


Plaid & Tartan can create such a quirky and uplifting look! You only need to invest an signature piece that will last for years! I personally really love the Vivienne Westwood's creative blazers and Balmain's slick look.


Lace is probably one of the most romantic trends this season and it is my all time favourite! It can make even the simplest dress shine and feminine instantly! Oh my, that Prada dress is to die for!


I have never been so creative on colour, but I will surely give a try this fall! I will start with mustard yellow! I love to team it with olive green, various tones of grey and petrol blue!


Sleepy Hollow is soooo daring! It needs a good look in front of the mirror before going out to make sure "I'm fierce and stylish, not scary"! However, I may get some long chains and gorgeous blouses to start with. That Alexander McQueen below has just stole my heart...


I love hood for casual day look, but it may not be the easiest cloth for night! Unless you match really well, it may give a more sporty look than it is shown on the runway...

Bazaar Report aw08 - Part 1

I always find January and July very exciting. Not only there are sales everywhere, it is also the start of the new season. Particularly, I love the fashion magazines in July. Actually, I should say all the August issues. They are always 1 month in advance, right? I've just got my Harper's Bazaar - one of the best issues this year! So, I will try to update their Key Look Reports in the following posts for all of you who haven't got British Harper's available :)


I love Fierce Chic! The rock chic look goes more glamorous and sophisticated this autumn! The make-up and outfit are simply together and mysterious.


The belt-up look is my long-time favourite, since I got a vintage fur scarf from my mum. For me, this is the best way to wear it for a more day look - a new modern classic! I will carry on this winter.


I'm always a round-toe shoe girl, but I can feel pointed-toe is coming back this winter in a more dressy and sexy way... Then, I'm looking for a romantic pair, maybe I will get a pair of almond-toe platforms... yummy!


The structured silhouette is just amazing! It gives power into our winter outfit! I love both my slim trousers for a super long-leg sleek look and also my volume ones for my figure hugging cashmeres. Marc Jacobs has just created this perfect silhouette for Louis Vuitton. Girls, all we need is some simple clean make-up and a good wallet :)
