It's amazing the detailing and time that goes into all of Alexander McQueen's work - see firsthand the backstage toils pre-runway show in this video posted a couple of days ago. McQueen's spring/summer 2012 look was all about femininity and opulence, and of course the perfect tailoring that he is known for.

Take note: Perfect proportions, drapey tops and sexy heels complete her everyday looks. You can't go wrong with a good leather pant as well - she makes it look both classic and rocker in two opposite outfits.

Throughout high school I was such an accessory girl, always wearing a slouchy beanie or beret and a scarf of some sort. This fall I have yet to find my go-to finishing touches (minus a leopard scarf that I wear with EVERYTHING), though this thick knit cable beret from Bop Basics has me obsessed.

Outfit: American Woman

american woman
Marc by Marc Jacobs Victorian tee, TEXTILE Elizabeth & James Jimi low-rise flared jeans, Dolce & Gabbana Green Leo Pumps, Givenchy Nightingale, Chanel vintage necklace, Topshop lipstick in "Nevada," Nars Monoi Body Glow II, Kevia Rococo stone cluster ring. For further details, click here.

In all seriousness though, the other day at work I was given the opportunity to hold this bag myself (the Givenchy Nightingale). I mean, let's be real, I see ridiculous designer purses on a pretty much daily basis at my job, even crazy purses that I've only seen online I sometimes see in the stores where I work, but holding one of these bags is a totally new experience.

Everything from the quality of the leather to the craftsmanship is intricate; no joke, it was the most comfortable purses I've ever held. There was thought behind everything which proved the logistics behind the price. (Hers had this awesome strap of woven leather with some badass hardware).

Anyway, just one of those experiences that excited me immensely and probably makes people roll their eyes. Guess I'm just superficial that way.

Minka Kelly: Work Inspiration

I'm currently in the process of moving out, and with that for me comes starting fresh. I am trying to gut my closet and re-work my wardrobe, and I need some casual but still chic looks for work, as that's where I spend most of my days. Minka Kelly looks super cute but stylish in this outfit that I'll be channelling for summer 2011.

Alexander Wang Large Emile Tote

My search for the perfect everyday bag has officially ended with the arrival of Alexander Wang's latest beauty: the large Emile tote. In the most supple pitch black leather (that would only get better with age and the rugged use I would put it through...), it is the perfect size and can easily be dressed up or down.

One little problem...I may need to boost my bank account for this $984.89 it is quite the investment. Buy it for me here.*

Elizabeth & James Spring 2011 Lookbook

Honestly, I will honestly always attest to being a fan of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Childish straight-to-VHS movies aside, the twins are extremely business-smart and know their fashion. The few pieces of their luxury line Elizabeth & James that have circulated through my store are always well-tailored, made of some gorgeous fabric, and are the perfect mix of classic and trendy.

This season's lookbook is so inspirational for pieces that will take you from the end of spring to the end of fall. Boho is always a highlight with MKA, in their love of flowy fabrics like linen and untouched cotton. But draping and bagginess aside, show off some leg this summer with the Herve Leger-inspired "Celeste" skirt, and the girly "Charlotte" dress, both available in seafoam green, which will go perfect with your mid-July tan.

UNIF Clothing Spring/Summer 2011 Video Lookbook

I first discovered this brand on the Nylon website, and with their 90s inspired grunge feel diluted with 60s wild child fare, to be expected. Are u punx enuf? Lil' Wayne is (get his hat here for $95), and for perfectly slouchy graphic tees at $49 bucks a pop, you can be, too.

The Weeknd - House of Balloons

So, I've been gone from the blogging scene for a little bit, had a busy week full of ups and downs, and my head's upside-down. Just thought I'd share what I've had playing on repeat all week long; they're called The Weeknd (yes, missing a vowel, just pretend it doesn't phase you).

Already with over 17 000 "likes" on social media website Facebook, The Weeknd's first mixtape "House of Balloons" has people in a frenzy over the sexy, dreamy R&B-electronic blend that just sounds so good no matter your mood.

Each song on the cd tells its own story, the ups and downs in 20-year old Abel Tesfaye's life, or maybe someone else's. When I heard he used samples and lyrical references from some of my favourite artists (Beach House, Aaliyah and Souxsie and the Banshees, to name a few), I was even more-so impressed. It's truly soul music with no limits; tragedy, depression, raw pain to melancholic euphoria (is that even possible?). The Weeknd is purely real.

Straight out of Toronto, The Weeknd already has A-list fans, from Canadian rapper Drake who regularly tweets his lyrics, to superstar music magazines Billboard and Rolling Stone.

I know you really want to listen to this now: go to and download it for free.

I love it when I stumbleupon cool new websites (and yes, stumbledupon is another one). A few days ago I found, a website where you can pick out your wishlist from endless things that show up as you scroll down the page, and as your taste changes (depending on what you click) the list of items that pop up changes, to suit your taste and personal style. Also, you can post fashion, interior design, art, EVERYTHING inspires you, and follow other people. Check it out here & add me! I'm shesinfashion.
