Badgley Mischka, Nice to Meet Ya

Another post about favourite things. Every single January we are bombarded with statistics and statements about suicide rates in January, how it's the most depressing month, the poorest month, yada yada. One of my favourite ways to beat the post-Christmas & New Year Winter blues (because, let's face it, those are the best things about Winter anyway) is to start looking forward to Spring & Summer. Particularly wardrobe-wise.

This year I find this particularly exciting, because so many of the collections are just my cup of tea. (And you must know how much I like tea by now.)

Uptown Twirl recently did a great post about Valentino's S/S 2011 campaign, all chiffon and movement and embellishment and delicate details. It is in short, amazing. Find her post here.

This got me thinking about another designer's line that I'm very, very excited about, which I stumbled across on I've since heard that Rumer Willis is the new face of Badgley Mischka, but I'm not here to give an opinion on that. (And I can only apologise for the quality of that source - Badgley AND Mischka, seriously?)

My point is, I am seriously over-excited by every single piece in the Badgley Mischka line. I am in love. Here are some of my favourites (although honestly I'm tempted to just give you all of them). All images from


Now, I wouldn't say it's anything groundbreaking, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The pastels, the details, the nudes and tans, the accessories, the silhouettes and lines, and the fabrics really make this look kind of divine to me, in the literal sense. If I wanted to feel like a goddess, I would most certainly choose one of those gowns. I also love the more casual looks. And honestly, with the opportunity to spend a year in Singapore, what else would look as chic in that level of humidity?

If I could afford to, I would buy every single one of the items above in a heartbeat. They're just the right balance of the romantic and the tailored, the relaxed and the couture. I like to think they suit my rather feminine, girlie style whilst still being grown-up. And we all know how important it is to combine styles, right?

See the collection in it's entirety here. Honestly, you want to.

So I'm off to revise some more, but I'm thinking my new-found romantic interest will keep my spirits up for a while.

Ciao for now,
