Circle Of Friends




Circle Of Friends (1995)

I loved Minnie Driver in this movie. I remember watching this when I was much younger, I couldn't get over Nan's betrayal of Benny...definitely one of my favourite movies of the 90s.
Also starring Chris O'Donnell and Saffron Burrows.

Olivier Theyskens

I absolutely adore Olivier Theyskens work. He translates femininity impeccably; from his suits to his couture-like gowns which he sends down the runway at ready-to-wear shows. Tulle, ruffles, dreamy evening gowns, beautiful clothes; no one does quite like Olivier!

After starting and subsequently closing a self-titled clothing line, Theyskens was appointed as Rochas' creative director in 2002. A few seasons down the line, he parted ways with the fashion house but was soon snapped up by Nina Ricci as their artistic director. Unfortunately, Olivier presented what would be his last collection for the label in Fall 2009 (a stellar one at that), as his contract was not renewed. He has since been replaced by Peter Copping.

Although there has been speculation that Theyskens will design for Halston, nothing has been confirmed and we are yet to see anything from the Belgian born designer.

Blog Notes

paris2

This shot has nothing to do with this post really, I just wanted an excuse to put up a picture of this beautiful Parisian sunset...*deep sigh*

I digress...

I recently removed my old commenting system and reverted back to blogger, somewhere in the process, I lost all my comments...*insert sad face*

I guess I should look on the bright side as most people who tried to remove the offending widget from their blogs had all their comments now posted in their names...I'm thinking seeing 'OMG, I love your blog' posted by you on your own blog is pretty bad although I'm still trying to decide which is worse...

So without being more dramatic than I need to be, please leave me loads of new comments to make up for the ones I've lost...

Wedges Are In

wedges are in
Top (L-R) : Ashish animal print platform wedge peep toe boots, Charlotte Olympia suede ankle boots with striped wedge, Chloé two toned wedged ankle boots
Bottom (L-R) : Balenciaga wedge deck shoes, Burberry Prorsum suede boots, Acne 'Atacoma' lace up wedge ankle boots

Wedged booties to be more specific! Wear with tights and cosy knitwear as it gets colder...much more comfortable to wear everyday than normal heeled boots!

Connie Corleone

connie_corleone

While The Godfather III was not really the strongest of all the three installments, I feel as though Constanzia 'Connie' Corleone (played by Talia Shire) never really came into her own until the final picture. More self assured and assertive than before, her style has also evolved and her clothes are more elegant and fitting than in I and II.
