Spring/Summer 2010 Fashion Weeks

Hi ladies and gents,
I just wanted to tell you have done no reviews of the Spring/Summer 2010 shows in all major cities (New York, London, Milan, and Paris - in that order) because I have not super LOVED any shows.
I hope the Lanvin show is killer (like it always is) so I can write about how amazing THAT one is.

Update: Can you believe I put Spring/Summer 2010? It is the FALL/WINTER shows that are going on right now. There is just so much white, fluffy, snow on the ground that all I can think about is summer! Oops!

What I Am Loving

Today I randomly thought about how much I loved this dress. The frock (worn by model Elsa Sylvan) is from the Lanvin Spring/Summer 2008 collection (in which designer Alber Elbaz received a standing ovation. I love the rich hue and ruffle sleeves of this dress. I WANT! I love how the simple strap shoes compliment the rich design of this dress.

H is for...

Hello chillin's,
Do you all remember way back when I was doing the ABC's of fashion? Well, apparently I am on the letter H. Hmm... This is a good way to get inspired to blog again. Yay!
Okay, so I would like to have H be for model Hyoni Kang!
I think Hyoni is so adorable.
A Teen Vogue favourite, Hyoni has posed for many fashion photography shoots for the magazine. A couple that stand out are a back to school editorial where Hyoni is photographed in a cute outfit with a messenger bag:
Cool and crisp Teen Vogue style.
Image from If it is not allowed on The Look Book, off it will come off!
and another picture where she is highlighted as a newcomer model in one of the Teen Vogue Fashion at Work (which come every November) issues:

I love, love, love, this Alexander Wang (Fall 2008?) sweater. The sweater looks so luxurious paired with the crisp white shirt and both of the zippers by the shoulders add an interesting detail.
I love Teen Vogue so much, honestly!... I could have a blog dedicated to how amazing the magazine is! (Future post? :) I have to stop jumping around when I ramble. Seriously. Anyways... Hyoni is from Seoul, South Korea, and won the Ford Supermodel of the world contest in January (2008?) ?
Update: I lied people. I kept on searching for Hyoni in runway shows (mostly 3.1 Philip Lim and Marc by Marc Jacobs, then just added the shows in which I saw her that I looked at. OOPS. Sorry. Forgive me?). From before: A few runway shows that Hyoni have been in that stand out are 3.1 Philip Lim Fall 2008, Fall 2009, and Spring 2010.
Thank you for reading and stay tuned!

The Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2010 Fashion Show

Dearest fashion lovers,
The fashion industry is presently within the Fall/Winter 2010 fashion shows. Sometimes I do not feel like perusing the Winter shows, but looking more at the Spring shows (for the same year) because it is SO cold out, I just want a little taste of summer!
I totally overlooked the Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2010 runway show. Sorry Ralph! Talk about pure glamour. Love.
All images via If these images are not allowed on my site, off they go! This dress is so gorgeous I cannot even contain myself. I love this dress. Oh, I love it!
This dress is kind of perfect. So simple, yet so glamourous. I would love to wear this outfit!
This dress is so simple, but so lovely. I love how the ruffle-y shape at the bottom of the dress is so flowy and free.
Don't you just see how these pieces (and the whole collection, for that matter) just ooze glamour?
Consider me sold.
A quickie but a goodie ( I would say :)
Have a great rest of London Fashion Week, my friends!

The Fall/Winter 2010 Shows

Dear readers,
I hope you are having a lovely fashion month. I almost cannot believe that we are in London fashion week already! How did that happen? I wish I was at the shows. I will make my front-row dreams come true one of these days!
You are probably wondering where ANY show reviews are. Well... I kinda have not super LOVED that many shows, and I only want to post shows that I super love. I am not sure if anything will ever compare to the Valentino Spring/Summer 2010 show. Boo.
How about you all? What are your favourite shows to date? I would love to hear from you!

Hi lovelies!
I am undergoing some redesign construction on my site. This means there will be some playing around with visuals and fonts, and things might be not how I like them from time to time. I want to get this blog feeling more "me" if you know what I am saying. Any input/feedback is greatly appreciated!
Thank you! (and for your co-operation :)
Love Jill

Blog guest/Romantic style...

Heading Forward

Hello my fashionable lovelies:
I need to share with you my latest fixation. They are Jennifer Behr headbands. Jennifer Behr and her team of talented workers hand make, toil, and stitch, all of their pieces at their studio and a network of studios in Brooklyn and Manhattan in New York.

This picture is from If it is not allowed on THELOOKBOOK, I will take it off!
This picture from the Fall/Winter 2009/2010 Jennifer Behr hair collection is the silk rosette headwrap which I LOVE. How crazy beautiful is this headwrap?! This particular item actually sold out because Blair Waldorf from the CW Network's hit show Gossip Girl wore it on Season 3 of the show.

This picture is from If it is not allowed on THELOOKBOOK, then off it goes!
This gem is from the designer's Spring/Summer 2010 collection. I love this hair piece as well.Please visit Jennifer Behr's web page at You will not be disappointed by her romantic, beautiful, creations.

The Death of a Legend

Photograph of Mister Lee Alexander McQueen is from It this picture is not allowed on my blog, then off it goes!
The fashion industry is devastated about the passing of a legend, Mr. Lee Alexander McQueen, who was found dead at his home on Thursday, February 11, 2010. The cause of his death? Tragically, suicide. Most have you have probably already heard of this news but I have been so crazy busy I have not been able to post this awful news. Alexander McQueen, who was a brilliant British fashion designer and creator, discovered by Isabella Blow (who also committed suicde in May 2007 ;( will surely be missed by an industry he contributed so much too. Rest In Peace, Mr. Lee Alexander McQueen.


I am back to blogging everyone. I have to blog because I love blogging to much. Comments please!

Serious Thinking

Dear blog readers,
How are you all?
I want to connect with you. If you read my blog, PLEASE let me know! I want to hear from you! :)
I must tell you all that I have been seriously thinking about not blogging anymore. I just do not feel like people read my blog, and as of yet, I do not have a way of knowing how many page views I get. Sigh.
I initially started blogging to have a voice, and to vent fashionable views but sometimes I just feel like blogging is not what I should be doing. Blogging is time consuming, and I am not sure if people even read this blog, even if they ARE "Followers".
So, next time you vist, do me a favour: let me know how much you love my blog if you want to see it continue to have posts.
Love always,

Asian Print/Streamlined Chic Inspiration... Guest/SELF STYLED!

Dear blog readers,
I am so excited to present to you a SELF-STYLED shoot in which I photographed, styled, AND got the opportunity to do hair and makeup. Love.
I love Holly's gray leggings with her gladiator sandals. Holly's flower hair piece brings out the pink her shiny (I would say Asian inspired :) dress. I wish you could see the print on Holly's shirt better... the print is pretty subtle. The metallic-ness of the dress is in place of more accessories that would have been in the outfit.
Isn't Holly gorgeous?
I think this is a weird camera angle but it just kinda works.
