1. There is a new muse in town. She is Spanish and could be described as a cross between the current reigning ingenues, Cory Kennedy and Valentin Fillol-Cordier. What makes this femme special to me is that she decorates her eyes with rhinestones like the club-goers of Reykjavik (and yours truly, on occasion) and can pull off mustard coloured tights like nobody's business. Ladies and gents, meet am_lul:
2. Penguins! They seem to be everywhere at the moment. Perhaps it is just a matter of paranoid perception, but not since living in South Australia (where small, flightless birds known as fairy penguins toddled around the beaches) have I seen so many of these creatures. I just bought penguin toys as presents for cousins after seeing not one, but two feature films starring the adorable Arctic dwellers, and then last week I switched my wall calendar to "December" and was met with the stare of a fuzzy penguin chick nestled comfortably under her mother. Most recently, I came across this dress while perusing the sales at built by wendy. It would be tricky to pull off in a chic rather than cute manner, but I'll take silvery penguin over olive ostrich any day.
3. The pink tinted "milkmaid" look is in for spring 07:(as illustrated to optimum effect by Scarlett Johansson for Louis Vuitton)
