Sexy Things: Alexander McQueen Python and Leather Cut-Out Booties

Yes, I have an admiration of all things 'McQueen'; which ultimately could lead to a deathly addiction. I tend to associate McQueen as very sought after and very luxury high-end. Something about Alexander McQueen's clothing and accessories intrigue me, and this is the reason why I chose another item of the very popular fashion house as my sexy thing. Oh yeah, I'm talkin' about the python and leather cut-out booties!

F/W '11 Trend: Pony Hair Handbags

I know what you're thinking: summer isn't here yet, and so why am I discussing about Fall/Winter fashion already? Well, that's the thing with the fashion world. New seasons always arrive early, and it's a good thing, since we all need to know what's going to be IN the next season. What's one of the things that will be IN next season? Surprisingly pony hair.

Black is Back

The 2011 Billboard Music awards was held last Sunday May 22, 2011, and the red carpet was filled with plenty of celebs wearing black dresses. Remember a time when black was out? Well apparently, black is back in!

Boy Chanel Collection

Channeling a different look and design from their usual classic quilted flap handbags, Chanel has come up with a new handbag collection called "Boy Chanel Collection". Even though the designs are different than what we'd expect from the coveted luxury fashion label, the new handbags exude an elegance, timeless and sophistication that Chanel is best known for.

Sexy Things: Alexander McQueen Limited Edition Savage Beauty Scarf

One of my all-time lemmings is an Alexander McQueen scarf. Sadly, I cannot justify buying a scarf that is $300+. Maybe I should start investing in one?

Speaking of the TNT 20th Anniversary event, this was what I wore that night. I really liked this outfit, since I mixed and match different things and just put it together. I literally just thought of what to wear the night before, and it came out like this. What do you think?

Constance Jablonski and Liu Wen in Alexander McQueen

The MET Costume Institute Gala was held last week and the theme was Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty in honour of the late designer who committed suicide last year. All of the celebrities, models, and top fashion figures attended the event in full style and there was no disappointment.

SSS: Naughty Legs

T by Alexander Wang shirt/H&M skirt/Miu Miu flats/Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity handbag/ToyWatch

This picture was taken at one of my favourite places to hang out with my mother: Sherway Gardens. We are there almost every week! This mall is really lovely. It has a family feel to it, yet it is very sophisticated. I love how this mall is not too packed, so you don't feel like you're suffocating strolling from store-to-store.
