Not usually one for jumpsuits, but I am really loving this one by Govil … must have!
Yes, Dee & I are still alive! Sorry for being so absent from the world of blogging … but with Dee’s CPA exams and my busy work schedule, its been hard keeping up. But alas, here we are again 🙂 Love the cover of July’s Vivi, so we thought we’d showcase some of our favorite summer trends from this month’s issue. 1. Ruffled and Tiered Crop tops 2. Mix & matching prints 3. Pearly accessories 4. Embellished Cross-body or shoulder satchels.
I must say, we can’t help ourselves from obsessing over Mercury Duo’s Spring/Summer 2010 runway collection!! The concept of this season’s line was “American Retro” – with a bit of a modern and edgy twist … and who better to personify this than the american pop phenomena known as Lady Gaga. You can see how her quirk and funk has inspired the runway. Love or hate Gaga’s fashion sence, you have to admit she sure adds drama and flare that we crave. Take away the extravagant white hair pieces and neon metallic body suits, you can see some really pretty and wearable pieces for summer. Pieces to point out are the feather skirts (LOVE), floral ruffle dress, and the ruffle 3/4 sleeve dress accented with the belt. Imagine being there for the actual show (at least we get to see Lady Gaga concert in August!!!) … I can just hear the “Rah-rah-ah-ah-ah Roma, Roma-ma GaGa, ooh la la”

While I was rummaging through my closet, I came across this Egoist cropped jacket from my first trip to Tokyo and remembered why we loved this brand so much … classic and cute pieces that last. Known for their uber cute and stylish sales girls in Tokyo, Egoist’s S/S collection has that bit of boho glam and summer chic-ness. Faves are the lace cardi, eyelet brown shorts, white ruffle top, and most of all … the white crochet romper with hood (last picture). It’s perfect for the hitting the beach this summer!
During our recent trip to Tokyo, we fell in love with a lot of pieces from Murua’s Spring/Summer collection …one of them being the long black maxi on our tokyo post, which is happily hanging in my closet to be worn over n over again this summer 🙂 Murua’s runway collection is filled with those amazing edgy chic pieces we fell head over heals over, such as the floral mini skirt, the leather and mesh combo leggings (look 2), the lacey tops, and floral corset just to name a few. Only regret … not buying it all!!
