Im the kind of person who will put together an outfit, get obsessed with it, and wear it 3-4 days in a row. Its not until my mom or sister say "isn't that shirt getting dirty?" that I realize I need to mix it up. This week I wore this outfit to school and work ahah
- Black beanie - not sure??
- Leather jacket - Diesel
- Black shirt - The Row
- Watch - Cartier
- Jeans - Diesel
- Bag - Gucci
- Shoes - YSL "The Rolling"
Tamara Mellon speaks out about shoes, sayings she lives by, and what is next for Jimmy Choo.
"The sayings I live by are 'Feel the fear and do it anyway,' and 'Don't sweat the small things'."
So, what's next?
"I would love to accessorise a woman completely - fragrance, watches, scarves. There are so many accessories, so that's on my wishlist," Mellon said, noting however, that something along the lines of a diffusion range was not on the cards. "We wouldn't specifically do a diffusion line of shoes but we have started to do a jelly thong which is more accessible."
Pierre Berge, former partner of designer Yves Saint Laurent, made some comments that have attracted a lot of attention within the industry. When asked about the state of the current fashion industry he said, "Italians don't make clothes, they make spaghetti. Versace is nothing and now that he's dead, it's less than nothing. And Cavalli's no good either." He also said the his former partner, "detested fashion, style is what he liked." You can see why his comments have been getting so much attention!

On her mom getting rid of her old seventies clothes: “I got so upset when I learned she threw them out. I want them! She wore the most amazing clothes in the Eighties too. She had so much Azzedine Alaïa. And the shoes! I’d walk into her closet and she’d have every colour of pumps imaginable. I remember my favorites were magenta and turquoise.”
Sure, the new designers kept the template, but something happens when a designer retires: the audience expects to see a new beginning. If I were the Permira guys, I’d be worried if all I heard was how fabulous and “very Valentino” the show was. What is it going to look like next season and the one after that? It’s going to look exactly the same. Nothing is going to change. And that’s the kiss of death in fashion. I’m a little surprised that Giammetti and Valentino are letting their egos get in the way and are supporting this approach. They’re smart guys. But I can’t think of one label that has survived by repeating itself. Look at what Tom Ford did at Gucci, Lagerfeld at Chanel, Galliano at Dior — they all set off a little bomb and started over with the bits that interested them. Not the whole thing. And a new audience found them. Maybe Chiuri and Piccioli will loosen up. Maybe they will think for themselves and not like respectful students in the school of Valentino. And maybe the don will finally let go.
Jessica Simpson has received some bad publicity lately about her weight. I think she looks fine, but then again, she is wearing a parka...Anyway, she looks good with her Marni boots, Vuitton bag, and Dior sunnies. Eh, she doesn't have amazing taste, but she looks nice.

She is promoting her dVb dress line she said, "Forties and Fifties underwear played a big influence on the collection, but the inspiration is me. I have tried every one of the dresses on, lived in them, to work out what feels right. I hope the silhouette is what every woman wants to wear."
