Hervé Léger: The Show, Styling and Size Friendliness

Once again, Hervé Léger provided the audience with the typical, bodycon looks.  Ranging from below-the-knee dresses to shorter pieces and some body suits, there really isn’t that much of a deviation, save for a few select styles (namely the fringey… Continue Reading

BCBG Max Azria Runway: Not Short Girl Friendly – AGAIN

I think I’ve had it with BCBG Max Azria – the runway pieces, anyway.  They sell them at many their stores – especially in higher end neighbourhoods – but the pieces are almost never wearable, unless you look like a… Continue Reading

Embellished Tops and Bishop Sleeves at Tory Burch

Presented off site in what looked like a hotel ballroom, glamorous looks were definitely expected, whether it is colour saturated or basic black.  It’s always best when designers don’t over-do the black for their fall/winter lines, and this was definitely… Continue Reading

Gorgeus Deep Shades at Carolina Herrera Don’t Disappoint

I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed by Carolina Herrera.  The looks are always gorgeous, with season-appropriate colours, and is always lady-like and grown-up.  And this continues for the Fall/Winter 2013 season.  Shiny, sparkly embellished, many made with silk, abound… Continue Reading
