As a respectable, but still amateur, fashion blogger I thought it would be convenient to post a selection of self styled pics.
Nothing special, just my first, shy attempt to cath my style vison on camera.
I'm wearing simple clothes - H&M kaky shorts&Panama hat, Brook's Converse-like trainers, a stripey sky-blue fitted shirt for outfit 1, and camouflage 2nd hand trousers ( 2 Euros!), NaraCamicie black waistcoat and Carrera sunglasses for outfit 2.
Stay tuned though, because in 2 days I'm having a kind of proper photo shooting session with 3 looks _ '80, nerdy and military _ LOL! We'll see what comes out of it and I ll show the pics asap!

Only the them is similar, nor the beauty or the intention and mood behind the shoots. Nevertheless, I was struck by the coincidence of having thought about, and done, those pics in April 2009, and that stricking outfits.
R.I.P. and you'll always be a great source of inspiration for the fashion industry.

Are you familiar with Lim, Sohee, Sun, Yenny and Yubin? Ever heard of the Wonder Girls?
K-pop icons and, it's the reason I'm writing about them on this bog, style mavericks? If not, here there is a brief up to date account about them.
- Supporting act for the Jonas Brother's U.S. tour last summer.
Dreamgirls inspired look for 'Nobody'
- Touring the U.S and Canada with their first world tour with the funky/retro song ' 2 Different Tears ' ( 2DT) , that came out in 3 langauges (English, Korean and Chinese).
From left to right: Yenny, Sun, Sohee, Yubin, Lim.
Check out Yenny stockings, Sun wedges&leggings, Sohee floral DM, Yubin tunic&pink DM and Lim platforms!
So, look out for the Wonder Girls on youtube and we'll keep following their music and looks.
For the time being...Wonder Girls FIGHTING!!

Just few words to give you an overview of the show and then the pictures will speak for themselves.
Location: a room of Musèe Rodin. Scenography: stems, leaves and petals tower over a total white background that some journalists described as Galliano's' little shop of horrors (!). To my eyes instead, it looked like a scene from Alice in Wonderland with those singing, merry flowers that she meets following the White Rabbit.
And Galliano too conjures up wonders and makes us dream with wide volumes on the waist and neck line, bright colours, gaudy combinations and refined tailoring.
In fact, thanks to Haute Couture, not only can we, ordinary fashion addicts, dream and be inspired, but above all research can carry on as well - into fabrics, prints, new shapes, colours and styles - and into tailoring skills and creativity that give 'sap' ( just to remain with botanics) to prêt-à-porter .
