If you are following me on Instagram than you would know that I am Palm Springing it this week. I chose to wear a relaxed denim on denim outfit fully embellished with gold studs for the first afternoon around town.

US Olympic Uniforms

Ralph Lauren x United States

Stella McCartney x Great Britain

Giorgio Armani x Italy

I have had so much fun watching the 2012 Summer Olympics this weekend and the uniforms are almost as exciting as the games. With so many great designs by the most respected designers in the fashion industry, the games are quite the spectacle this year.

Go US of A

 

 

With the launch of Karl Lagerfeld’s Olympic-themed collection at Selfridges in London Tuesday night, Karl calls this an exercise in laughing at himself. But that did not deter some of fashions finest from coming out to support the notable designer and his collection.

“The drama of this collection isn’t a drama,” the designer said. “It’s a joke. It’s an inspiration. In a way, it’s me. So I have to be careful not to get too much into it, because I don’t expect everybody to dress like me. That’s why I like this collection with the t-shirt to make a joke out of me, because I think I’m a cartoon.”

Ombre

We have seen the ombre trend everywhere this year: from hair, to jeans, and even accessories. It is a better/ fresher take on tie-dye and it is so chic. Wether you are DIY’ing this trend at home or buying it off the racks, ombre pieces should always have a place in your closet.

I absolutely love this Dsquared2 Fall/ Winter Campaign and I am particularly fond of the accessories. I can NOT wait to get my hands on those super embellished sunnies!

I’ve been wanting to feature these Pierre Balmain jeans ever since I bought them on super sale at Nordies (as seen on my instagram feed  here). They were the only ones left in size 23 … so I basically knew it was meant to be. The wash and the detail work on these jeans is amazing in person so I really wanted to play off of those elements when styling this look. I kept everything clean and simple but added a bit of edge with the accessories. Moving into fall, consider this a preview to my winter wardrobe.
