Luxury=pocket friendly

After the much awaited announcement of Lanvin's collaboration with H&M, within a span of new weeks comes another scream from the House of Valentino. To celebrate its upcoming flagship store in Milan, GAP has teamed up Valentino to create a capsule collection. Creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli have used "iconic Gap pieces" as the basis for the line, which launches in late November.

The sad news about this collaboration is that the collection will be in stores only in selected stores limited to Europe. But for the american fashion bugs, there is always ebay i guess !

Messy Updos

I would probably be the last person you would come to ask for hair advise !
I have never straightened my hair on my own.
I could never curl them either
I haven't even combed my hair since 2 years ! Don't judge me now. I read somewhere combing your hair with your hands is better than using an actual comb. So now you know what i have been doing with my hair. 
MAX i could learn is to make a decent pony tail or tie a plait and now that i have chopped most of it off .. i really don't have to do anything really .. Bliss*

Day off at work, surfed through a few depressing pieces of news and finally sheer laziness lead me to these images.

I suggest when in doubt always resort to a Messy Updo instead of a boring pony tail. A few bobby pins with a hint of bling or some cute pin could add so much to look without looking like you put in any effort!
*I must be sounding like a magazine page for beauty and hair sections but in fact i miss my long hair now!*

Have a look at this video. I think its kinda cute :)

When you are a part of the fashion industry.. you need to see something new everyday.. to get inspired.. to wow on something everyday.. or just to satisfy our basic appetite to comment/bitch on a designer's new collection/ advertisement or just about anything.
Talking about "newness", the newest shows for Spring Summer have started and i am finally so glad they are coz i am tired of going to to round up to the same Resort collections over and over again .. *UGH, such a bore!*

Anyways .. So i am lovinggg PREEN ! clean lines, angelic colours and every garment on the ramp can be worn right from the catwalk ..
You have to have a look .. :)
