Leather shorts in 25 degree weather? Only a leather addict like yours truly. I know you’ve got one burning question for me: wasn’t your posterior uncomfortably sweaty? Indeed it was not. You’ll just have to take my word for it.
This Erdem blouse, by the way, is one of my most beloved items in my closet. It was a permanent fixture in my wardrobe rotation last summer, and I’m so happy to welcome it back. I’ll be wearing this blouse until it’s threadbare. Same goes for the
sweaty leather shorts by Pink Tartan.

Last night, The Met’s Costume Institute Gala saw movie stars, musicians, designers and models walk the most fashionable red carpet of the year. Though I missed the first ever livestreaming of the arrivals, I’ve gotten all caught up on who wore what via the countless photos on the internet, and have landed on my best dressed of the evening.
The top spot easily goes to Cate Blanchett in a feather embellished black Alexander McQueen gown – a showstopping combination. Following closely behind is gala co-chair Carey Mulligan in a sequinned Prada number and the most incredible ‘do. A risk-taking Diane Kruger, also in Prada, is a controversial pick with her voluminous purple gown and its feathered hem, but I loved it.
Rounding out my best dressed list are the stunning Rooney Mara and knockout Gisele Bündchen, both in Givenchy Haute Couture. Black is anything but boring when Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci is involved (let’s pretend we never saw this).
Did you watch the red carpet arrivals live? Which were your favourite looks?

Daria Werbowy, our favourite supermodel of all time (it’s a bonus that she’s Canadian), covers Vogue Paris‘ February 2012 issue…in a bedazzled Prada Spring 2012 swimsuit, no less.
And if the fabulous cover isn’t enough to get our fellow Daria fans excited, this little tidbit should: the supermodel stars in her very own 70-page editorial inside. You read right – 70 whole pages of Daria! We cannot wait to get our hands on this issue.

While we ever so impatiently count down the days until the August 11th launch of the Janie Bryant x Banana Republic Mad Men inspired collection, Jaime King apparently need no longer wait. The actress officially became the first to step out in a look from the limited edition collection when she wore the ivory lace cap-sleeved dress to the Carrera Sunglasses Escape LA event this week.
King’s styling of the dress, though, was anything but 60′s. Instead of a pair of sensible heels, she wore the very feminine lace dress with a pair of Prada Fall 2011 wing-tip platform espadrille oxfords. You’d never catch Betty Draper in this ensemble, but I’m loving it for all the same reasons I adored Alexa Chung in Erdem last month. The shoes are completely unexpected and bring just the right amount of edge to an otherwise very lovely, ladylike piece.

In case you’ve ever wondered how one styles a neon yellow lace skirt, Julia Sarr-Jamois has got you covered. The fashion editor of Wonderland Magazine showed up at the Milan Spring 2012 menswear shows last week in a variety of perfectly mismatched ensembles and this particular outfit, featuring one of my favourite Christopher Kane Spring 2011 pieces, was a standout.
Balancing the neon yellow with neutral t-shirt and booties, Sarr-Jamois threw on an incredible pair of Prada Minimal Baroque sunglasses too to kick the outfit up even a few more notches. And how about that midday sunglasses change? Too good.
The skirt is currently on sale at Net-a-porter. Or, give the equally fabulous oversized clutch a try instead.

This is an old photo of Miroslava Duma from The Sartorialist, but I simply adore her crocodile satchel. It’s the only Prada that’s ever remotely interested me – in fact, I’m completely blown away by it. One day, this gorgeous bag will be on my arm…nevermind the fact that it retailed for $17,500 and is way beyond my bag budget!
