Paris Fashion Week SS08 Wrapup IV

Last Paris Fashion Week SS08 post! Gosh, it's been such a busy time of the year I haven't had the time to blog about as many designers' collections as I would like to, but here are the last few collections.

Nina Ricci
This is one of the shows we've been all waiting for. Olivier Theyskens totally got my attention when he said the theme was on 'a group of girls you'd see on the street in the early morning coming from a ball'. I mean, in my imaginary glamorous world, one of the scenes I would picture myself in is exactly that -way to steal a girl's heart!

This season's look has still got last season's wavy, feather-added hair going on. While this collection is not as stunning or wowing as last season's, I still am in love with a lot of the dresses. I love how these silk dresses look so effortless, simply but not boring. SO chic!

Another thing I love about Olivier's Nina Ricci, the romantic, gothic element. Like that outfit on the left, it's sort of dark, yet still so pretty. The one thing we all recognise now is the long dresses' trains -they remind me of waves 'wishing and washing' behind the dress-wearer. Absolutely divine!

Another brilliant collection by Alber Elbaz. In my mind, he's the designer that started the trend of silk clothes and bright-coloured clothes. Unfortunately, Lanvin is one designer brand I can't afford anytime soon...

Very sophisticated and elegant.

This collection was mostly dresses -a lot of them suitable for parties.

These dresses are fun, glamorous with lots of luxurious details. If only I had all those parties to go to...

John Galliano
Usually I don't care much about Galliano's personal collection. OK, I probably still don't care that much, (not really my style.) But the theatrics of the show really caught my attention. It's not every show that the models don't look stoic and seem to be actually putting on a show.

A modern take on the elegant, flapper style.

The dresses are so dramatic! One dress I see potential in is the dress on the left -it's prints are light and pretty, and the dress itself looks totally wearable. I hope to see it in real life next season!

Ooh no, I just realised I haven't blogged about YSL! Oh well, just remember to go check it out yourself! What did you think of these collections?

Paris fashion week is definitely the best, no doubt about that.

Lanvin / GLAMOUROUS!! Love it.

Olivier Theyskens should totally marry me? WE LIVE IN THE SAME DAMN COUNTRY! Okay so I guess he doesn't live in Begium anymore. WHATEVER. He studied in Brussels.

John Galliano is a genius. The show is always so...spectacular!

April brings news about developments in a quest for healthy Christian Louboutin
, most specialists would argue that " healthy Christian Louboutin Sandals
" is an oxymoron – a combination of contradictory words. Wearers know that Christian Louboutin Pumps
twist the big toe. Even Christian Louboutin Boots
of the more sober kind –can ruin a day.

lida is a new diet that creates an 11 day meal plan according to your tastes. Each day will have some kind of a theme. You will not have to count the amount of calories you consume or portion your meals. Rather, you will be encouraged to eat until you are satisfied with lida daidaihua but not the point of being stuffed. To illustrate clearly how daidaihua works, you might eat fish, chicken, fruit salad and cottage cheese for one day. You can eat as much as you want provided that you stop the very moment you feel full. Don't be worried about slimming capsule though. The entire day's meals consist primarily of proteins while it doesn't include that much carbohydrate. This kind of formula of lida slimming is important for one to lose excess fat without having to lose muscle as well. When you take in too little calories, your body will burn muscle and not fat.
Karl Lagerfeld, who took over the creative leadership of Chanel bags in 1983, released a Reissue Chanel Wallet in 2005 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic classic replica Chanel handbags . The Reissue is exactly as Mademoiselle Chanel designed it in 1955. It has two chain straps, rather than the chain and woven leather strap, and the double C clasp has been replaced with a Mademoiselle lock.
