my friend, luke, showed me a website yesterday - it's called roiworld and i am absolutely obsessed..
basically you pick a collection/theme/celebrity, the wardrobe pops up with a mannequin and you can style, style away!
first i styled my girl/fashion crushes - zooey deschanel, jessica stam, M.I.A., lady gaga and princess riri.. then i decided i needed an avatar, so i tried to make one that at least resembled me slightly (it was kind of difficult as you can't change the hair colour and apparently all brunettes have horrible taste in clothing). i was pretty chuffed with the final result, until i started getting comments on it..
"she looks pretty serious" and "change ur hairstyle and take off the glass become more beautiful".. i hate being insulted, especially in broken english.
anyway, here's the avatar in question, plus a few others i put together..

what started out as a post about a couple of pairs of miu miu shoes from the spring 2010 collection has now turned into a full run-down of the show..
inspired by the survival of innocence and heavily print-orientated, the collection features cats, swallows and reclining nudes splashed across hyper-feminine, cut-out silhouettes. clasically restrained shapes in black, white, pastel pink, baby blue and a hint of red, are reworked with just the right amount of flesh and a smattering of sequins, beads and crystals thrown in for good measure. even the hair and makeup had me swooning!
it's sugary sweet with a definite schoolgirl vibe, but also kind of reminds me of old western movies, showgirls and fairy floss..
