Observations from a Construction Site!

Ever wondered where those trends we embrace come from? Its been known that designers often get inspiration from just taking a stroll down the street, and observing what people wear.


So there i was, taking a stroll (in our surprisingly cool weather) and i decided to share with u, my blog-mates, what i saw

Exhibit A: Neons


flashy trends of 08



flashy louboutins



workin it



Exhibit B: The Scarf AKA "the kaffiyeh" XD


a look mary kate has been seen in several times



a trend we all liked, till rachel ray totally killed it




et voila


- to inspiration! xx
