runway to highstreet - givenchy fall 08

I know everyone has been crazy about the Givenchy Fall 08 collection but I have to mention it as well. I always adore Givenchy and the Fall 08 collection was so strong and captivating. It made me want to dress all black this fall. I really love the dark goth romance, it's definitely my favorite trend of the season.

200th post

Happy 200th post, dear blog!

On another note, I've been suffering from a bad cold for the past few days. I didn't go to work the last two days. My days were filled with countless tissues, watching Alias DVDs in bed, drinking tea, even more tissues, sleeping and watching TV.
I hate being sick, I'd rather go to work than stay in bed all day. It seems like a nice thing to do when you actually feel fine but when your head hurts like hell and you can't stand looking into a TV or computer screen for longer than an hour without getting dizzy it's not that fun.

But I'm feeling better now and I will go back to work tomorrow. I still have to blow my nose every 10 minutes though but I guess my co-workers will have to deal with that. haha.

runway to highstreet - rodarte fall 08

To me Rodarte's RTW Fall 08 collection is like Alice in Wonderland gone bad.
As the designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy already said "the connection between the Kabuki tradition and that of modern Japanese horror films." Horror films. Exactly what comes to mind when looking at those dresses. But at beginning the collection is quite powdery and dreamy, which is why I thought of Alice in Wonderland...with a knife..haha.

After looking at all these "slasher" dresses I think I definitely need something out of red chiffon!
