The Wanderer Returns…

12 Mar

Ok so I’ve been conspicuously absent since LFW, sincerest apologies. My reasons are two-fold, most of you know about the job situation. I’ve officially been made redundant now, subsequently I’ve been going mental trying to find a new job. Not an easy task with hundreds of people all applying for the same jobs 😦 All happened so quickly and unexpectedly, I don’t really have a game plan..toyed with working freelance, getting a permanent job and even going abroad. But mostly been stressing! Second reason is ‘blogger burnout’, I’ve totally cut down on looking at fashion stuff on t’internet and I didn’t want to put up half arsed posts for the sake of it. Seem’s like I’m not the only one though, there’s a great post on IFB Forums and I really am trying to snap out of it!

I’ve already started, by updating my Model of the Month (left) and random bits and pieces that I’m coveting, those Dune boots are on sale by the way! Model of the Month this month is Lily Donaldson, who triumphed at Milan Fashion Week. Milan was all about the established models, with newbies hardly getting a look-in. Anja Rubik opened for Fendi and opened and closed for Gucci, Natasha Poly opened for Cavalli and Blumarine and closed for Allessandro Dell’Acqua and Dolce & Gabbana. They were no match for our Lily though, who opened and closed for Versace and had the final looks for Alberta Ferretti and D&G. Good to see one of my favourite models doing her thing!

Talking of Milan, I know my absence has affected coverage of Milan and also Paris. I’m sure most of you eager fashionistas have devoured images already so I’m not going to repost images you’ve seen. Instead, I’ve got some cute backstage pictures coming in the next couple of days, along with posts on mary-janes, vintage dresses and a totally EPIC Fashion Fix. Looks like my fashion muse has struck, finally!

Fall into The Gap

30 Jul
That was probably my favourite ever tagline for Gap. Nowadays, the might be lacking the genius tagline, but they are more than making up for it with amazing faces in their campaigns. Fall 08 has been subject to much speculation, from everyone from Chanel Iman to *gasp* Scott Schuman. Division Street has just posted 4 adverts – Chanel Iman, Georgina Chapman, Lily Donaldson (yippee!) and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld. Can you imagine Carine Roitfeld shopping at Gap?!

Lily scores her first Vogue cover…

7 Jul
…as the fashion world’s eyes are awaiting the ‘all black’ Vogue Italia. Not Lily’s best photo, I love beautiful, ethereal Lily. Of course she still has cheekbones you could cut yourself with and those piercing blue eyes, but it’s a little same-old for me. I’m compiling a heap of Vogue Italia photos, so keep an eye out for a monster post coming soon!

Dolce & Gabbana Fall 08

29 Jun
Ooooh new Dolce advert pics! Is it just me or have the adverts been getting better over the last couple of years? Dolce & Gabbana have almost followed the exact same formula as their SS 08 campaign, shot by Steven Klein and featuring Jessica Stam and Lily Donaldson. They have decided to replace Gemma Ward with Caroline Trentini.

The Boy wasn’t overly impressed with the gorgeous Daria Werbowy, is he blind?! There are other amazing models out there, so I’m going to put up some more images. Who’s your favourite?

Sasha Pivarova

Erin Wasson

Gemma Ward

I never actually realised before, but they’re all blonde! I think I like Daria even more now, the gorgeous brunette stands out among a sea of blondes.
