Alexander Wang's Prisma Skeletal Bags

Alexander Wang. Two words that make up a minimalist's dream. I don't think I've encountered anything less than magnifique, or anything I wouldn't wear from his line.. Until I came across this.

Looks like the normal Prisma edge but on a diet.

Sure, it gives a little touch of hardware here and there but one I think isn't needed. Looks bony (hence the name skeletal) and about as functional as teaching your cat how to eat fine dining. I'm not saying that the normal Prisma hardware is functional but at least it doesn't look like it's on a hunger strike.

Chain Boots by Chanel

These Chanel boots are from their fall/winter 2013 collection. I've seen these boots on pretty much every fashion blogger there is, haha. I'm not a fan of them at all. Let's hope it's not the kind of dislike that forces me to reconsider my opinion and ends up in me liking them. Let me just say that if they weren't Chanel, I don't think people would go so insane for them cause they'd be too grungy or trashy for some people but hey, you see how that CC logo has got you hypnotized?! I would appreciate them as a form of art or a novelty piece but besides that, they'd pretty much be impractical. That's what I think anyway. Plus I have fat ankles so strapping them down would make me feel like my ankles are in an episode of The Biggest Loser or something.

I'm still on my personal endeavour of looking for a pair of cream/black leather espadrilles. The fact that it took me so long to actually admit how much I liked it was probably the reason why I couldn't find them anywhere. They're pretty much sold out and out of season.. but here I am.. on eBay. Everytime I see a Trapeze & espadrille combo on Instagram, I feel like slapping myself because somehow they look so good together! To me, anyway.

Elie Saab PFW 2013

If you've been reading my blog for some time, you'd know that I am a very big fan of Elie Saab. The man is a genius. He is in a class of his own. I doubt that there will ever be an haute couture designer that I would favour more than him. When his show at PFW went live about two weeks ago, I wasn't able to catch it because I was busy studying for my final exams. But once I saw the photos, I fell in love immediately, like I normally do with his designs.
