Pinkie’s Fashion Fix
R.I.P. to the “Queen of Disco” aka Donna Summer… music lovers around the world received the devastating news yesterday. At the age of 63, Ms. Summer passed away from cancer… causing my mother a mild heart attack (as I was born to single “The Woman in Me”. Seems in such a short period we have lost some of best musical talents to grace the world… may they R.I.P. and may their music live on!!
H&M AUTUMN 2012 MEDIA PREVIEW
As much as I love to hate H&M (you know what I mean)!! Nothing makes me happier than getting to sneak peek all their goodies before the masses. I was super excited and delighted by the offerings for the Fall/Winter 2012 collection. Once again H&M does what they do best, serve up a stellar collection of minimalism injected with the just the right bold elements.
Sparkle and bling are some of my favourite things… so natural I was in love with the sweater, skirt and even harness dripping in gems, pearls, and gold.
And just to tone it down a notch- a day look that still shines with the luster of the gold skirt and warmth of the chunky mustard cardigan.
We all know prints are here to stay… from floral prints to patterns – loved them all!!
I sooooo needs this sweater and they having the matching leggings- can you say outfit!!
Who say’s shorts are just for summer!?!? Sleek, futuristic and metallic the perfect combo for a killer shorts suit.
As always the best part are the accessories that I would cut of body parts to own.
Once again the pearls, gems and gold are talking to me!!
Sooooo need these silver penny loafers in my life.
This is MY must have accessory from this collection… I will kill for it.
I’m not a baseball cap kinda girl, but this may change with this hat…
When didn’t forget the gents as H&M always keeps them fly and fresh.
These may not be for every guy out there… but I still think a few could own these suede and leather pants!! Shoot, I want a pair.
Even the men get treated to a lil sparkle and shine (in a man appropriate way).
Boy the accessory game for the men is proper for F/W ’12.
These leather gloves – can we scale these down for the ladies??
Bow ties for everyone.
These boots are a MUST for the men for F/W ’12… I’m just saying.
Of course H&M has to tug on my heart strings with too cute kiddie clothes.
SWAROVSKI FALL/WINTER 2012: KINGDOM OF JEWELS
For F/W ’12 Swarovski continues to bring us their classic, heritage and style with a combination of modern day elements. With the collection entitled “Kingdom of Jewels” one could see why, with aristocratic touches of days past with a fusion of modern day bad ass.
Can you say, I’m SEXy and you know it!!! Perfect for the today’s modern woman.
Love the colour and the massive crystal doesn’t hurt.
What time is it?? Not sure you can tell with all shine.
I always love the funny lil characters.
Modern elements of rocker chic are infused with old world charm for the perfect “Rock Royalty” look for the men.
Do I need to say anything more.
Keeping tradition alive they can’t forget their classic figurines that we all know and love.
Walking in a winter wonderland with these cheery pieces.
For all the Hello Kitty lovers out there if you got a cool 10K this too can be yours and FYI only 80 exist on the planet…. or you can just settle for necklace.
