on my wishlist

I don't know what my current (by current, I mean for the past 6 months or so) infactuation with loose, drapey garments originated, but I'm loving this Circular Oversized Pullover by American Apparel. It's so simple (and I'm sure I could DIY it myself), but also makes a statement at the same time. And for only $40, I'm sure I'll get my money's worth out of it because I'll probably wear it everyday.

What the Hel

Mette 28
I came across this site (Hel Looks) over a year ago, and I just love the style of the people in Helsinki. It's uncoventional, edgy, and fun...all what fashion should be. They're definitely 5 steps ahead of American fashion. Oh, how I love European fashion!

Trompe L'Oeil

Wish you could turn an oversized black tee into an LBD? Or transform a simple shift dress into a sexy boustier dress? Well, with the Trompe L'Oeil Collection by young designer Rosalind Keep, all of your wishes can come true. Keep is getting rave reviews about this new collection, which is being called a "breath of fresh air" for "otherwise painfully boring clothing."

I don't know how I feel about this collection. Perez Hilton and I both agree that it reminds us too much of those God awful tuxedo shirts (remember those??). But it is fun, and screams DIY! Trompe l'oeil is chic and cheap!
