Loving these simple drawings with bright, summer frocks and accessories. Also loving how each outfit is tagged with spontaneous summer adventures like biking the Brooklyn bridge or lemonade on the high line. Perfect date outfits!

I’m embarrassed to say this, but I had no idea the Met Gala was themed… All these years, I had no idea! It took the most obvious of themes to make me realize how naive I’ve been – how could I have missed 2006′s ode to Britain, or 2011′s homage to the late Alexander McQueen? Ridiculous. But it won’t happen again, because naturally I’ve informed myself a little further. The Met Gala isn’t just about celebrities in beautiful, avant-garde dresses (or so I thought), it also celebrates the opening of The Met’s Fashion Exhibit at the Costume Institute, which this year is celebrating Punk: Chaos to Couture.
True to form, New York’s fashionistas embraced their inner punk last night and wore some beautiful pieces.
You got to love Sarah Jessica Parker’s mohawk, she turned punk into full-on glamour. Black, edgy cat eyes were all the rage, and new-comers Ashley Greene and Nina Dobrev did it best by keeping their lips neutral and jewellery minimal. But let’s be honest, there’s no doubt the award for best punk-wear goes to these four ladies below. Look at that hair!? It screams attitude. As does Cara Delevingne’s fierce look.
Of course, I’d like to pretend I’d be brave enough to wear a bad-ass punk dress, but I’d likely opt for a sweeter one, à la Michelle Williams. Even Ivanka Trump attempted punk, so surely I could do it too. Have you any favourite looks?

I’m finally back in the city, which means I’m anxious to trade in my factory scrubs for some chic city wear. I love the bright colours and patterns from this season’s collections. The mix of stripes and bold flowers in J Crew’s outfit (no.1) is perfect for a weekend brunch date, while Club Monaco’s yellow collar (no.4) can dress up a plain white tee or maxi dress.
Since I’ll be back in the office soon, I’m also on the hunt for some light dresses. Some might say I’m a little conservative when it comes to office wear (er, maybe conservative for the creative world) but I just can’t imagine wearing yoga pants or boobie tanks to work. I once worked at a company whose receptionist wore short shorts and sky-high heels to work, and I always thought it looked incredibly unprofessional. Call me old fashioned, but I’m a believer in dressing for the job you want, not the one you have.

The blogosphere is buzzing with excitement over Emerson Fry’s Spring 2013 debut today, so much so that their server crashed due to the high traffic. Lucky for me (and you!) I had a chance to capture a few of her beautiful pieces, and I can’t stop gushing over them… Wednesday can’t come soon enough!
A little bright loving from Nasty Gal this Friday morning. Their February look book is making me wish Spring would magically arrive this weekend… Oh, the things I’d do to spend a full day in the sun right about now!

Department stores may be filled with fancy undergarments for Valentine’s Day, but it’s Collette Dinnigan’s collection that I covet. Collette knows what makes a woman feel beautiful, and her intimates inspire confidence and sexiness – the perfect combo for a classy Mademoiselle!
