August 17th, 2010 You know in fashion when trends for a season magically intersect with all the things you like and suit you and suddenly shopping is a joy rather than a drag? No, me neither. But I think my time has come! Honestly, I think I need a lie down. All images from a variety of august/september ’10 issues of magazines via the glorious Fashion Gone Rogue.

my nails!!!! :) 949 440 137 723 555 848 1103 1539 955 147 320 171 790 587 852 825 798 421 1009 233 207 642 411 663 404 433 407 1497 280 354 319 894 129 119 728 166 157 463 63 582 286 462 349 139 2078 1629 Tomboy Style Marchesa, fit for an Empress > Fashion show coverage Just when you thought there were no ways left for Marchesa to reinvent the breathtaking yet unique evening gown, we’re handed this collection on an ornate silver platter that came straight out of some exotic palace. The origami-like shapes found their way back in, while other pieces were beaded and draped like the processional garb of some ancient Empress. Odds are the red carpets will also be awash with the full lace one-pieces that brought the jumpsuit to a new level of formality and elegance. More images after the jump. Images:

Trendy vintage clothing - recycled vintage and new clothing... Urban Renewal by Mari Santos We're usually kinda "meh" about most T-shirt surgeries because we're just can't get into the hack'em, slash'em sartorial school of thought. Toronto-based Mari Santos, on the other hand, is such a genius with a pair of scissors we want to hitchhike across the border, kidnap her, head back south, and then set her to work against her will on the oversize T-shirts we seem to get for free by the pound. Except that it would probably be illegal. Which is kind of a bummer. Her ethos: "Taking something old, frumpy and ill fitting and making it into something new." More pictures below the fold.

The Blonde Salad Mary Mary Quite Contrary – HonestlyWTF It’s no surprise that the work of Mary Katrantzou is featured in V‘s upcoming ‘Discovery’ issue, featuring the next generation of emerging fashion designers. A relatively new designer, Mary has already made her mark with her simple silhouettes, emblazoned with hyper-realistic, richly innovative, bold colour prints. Her Spring 2011 collection is entirely printed with images of lavish hotel and stateroom interiors by digitalizing fragments of pages from vintage copies of Architectural Digest and The World of Interiors. Whether you dig her dresses or not (and I do!!), you can’t deny her talent and willingness to take a risk. (top image from here, bottom images from here)

Painfully High Fashion: 6 Insane Women’s Boots & Shoes It looks great, in a way – an elemental wire-frame woman’s shoe form, minimalist fashion brought to life in a simple, bare, elegant, modern and entirely uncomfortable high-heeled shoe design. Just imagine the pressure put by even the slimmest of ladies with every step on these few cold, thin metal supports. Ouch! Not much better, these high heels also from the Virtual Shoe Museum take the idea of open-toe design to the extreme. This style seems to have all of the downsides of tall shoe or boot fashions and none of the upsides afforded by them in terms of foot protection. Fashion masochists looking for even more painful designs might find something in this mix that fits their tastes, be it the lockable bondage shoes, medieval-style torture-device heels, spike-and-strap stilettos or the folded-square slippers.

Haute Design by Sarah Klassen: Graceful Gowns by Papilio I came across these delicate and sweet gowns the other day, and thought you might enjoy them as well! Photographed prettily by Marino Danilova, these dresses offer such a dreamy look...I haven't shared too many wedding gowns in the past, but I find I greatly enjoy those that are so special and unique, don't you? I couldn't begin to choose a favorite, though, I'm really liking the lightly gold toned dress as well as the detailed neckline and waistline of the gown featured on the left in the last image. Do you have a favorite? {Just in Case} A few features this week, to click... * Share your favorite style secret to enter to win this fashionable book!
