love at first sight.

max kibardin shoe booties. seriously: want. want. want. they've knocked every other shoe i've been lusting over out of the ball park. and they're on sale! ...for $650CAD. i'm fairly positive the only way to solve my problems is to get a sugar daddy. also, despite this self-imposed month-long shopping ban, i am continually searching online for shoes every day. sigh.

status meeting.

okay, i cheated. i wanted to wear these bcbg paris shoes, but wasn't going to ruin them by walking in them 9 blocks each way for a short status meeting (company's logo is finally getting somewhere). i actually wore this outfit with my blue wrap sweater and white havaianas. i quite love this top i bought from a japanese shop called "shibuya" in melbourne last year (worn over a cotton h&m spaghetti strap dress).

last night, while going through bags and bags of old clothes to donate, i came across some clothes my sister wore in the early 90s. some of the stuff i wouldn't have touched with a 10-foot pole even a couple years ago, but now i think they're seriously amazing! i'll try to share some photos soon.

ling yali.

vogue china april 2009

i wanted to share these amazing pieces by ling yali i found in an issue of vogue china last month. sorry for the horrid scan (click for larger image). the magazine is quite a monster and hard to lay flat on a scan bed. i am so in love with the vest in the bottom right hand corner; such a work of art.

here are some photos from ling yali's yl-l f/w '09 show at shanghai fashion week in april:
