Pretty things from ... In Style August 2011

TLG has been sick since the weekend (ear infection, poor thing!) and we made an impromptu visit to the local library. While TLG roamed around the bookshelves, I grabbed a few magazines and relaxed.

Miranda Kerr is a hot mama on the cover of August's In Style.

I enjoyed reading the cover story. Miranda seems so grounded despite the glamourous life she lives. And I love her post-partum body! Look at this:

This is from 2009:

Her body is more womanly now. I hope the curves stay.

This shot is beautiful - I love it.

Now onto other pretty things. Here are some lovely dresses from Australian designers:

Ginger & Smart

Alice McCall

The dress on a model:

Sara Phillips

The model shot:

Colour blocking is such a fun trend and it's easy to wear too. I have not heard of Sara Phillips before. I like the look of her Spring 2011/12 collection Luxor. There are some fun pieces and judging from her previous seasons, the prices are reasonable too. Next time I'm at the Strand I'll look out for her clothes at the Corner Store.

When I'm searching for the model shots above I noticed that the designers have online stores with previous seasons' stocks on sale (here and here and here). I don't think I need any more temptation with shopping! There are my picks from the sale items.

Ginger & Smart Shattered Sleeveless Dress (from $465 to $233)

If they have it in my size I probably would have bought it.

Sara Phillips Kimono Cutout dress ($140! down from $390)

They do have one in my size but I have zero occasion to wear a dress like this. Someone go snap this up!

I'm not done with dresses yet!

Not 100% sure about Penelope Cruz's Pucci dress but it's captivating.

Eva Green in Nina Ricci - so feminine and dreamy

This is from the same Lover collection I wrote about in July's marie claire.

I wished I looked as glamorous as Kristy Hinze (in Sportscraft) when I was up the duff with TLG.

Onto bags. I'm not an Oroton fangirl but this tote looks bright and fun for summer.

The Oroton website doesn't have one in yellow yet but a pink one is on sale for $210. It is a good size and a good price - tempting!

The next bag is definitely in the lemming catagory. Behold the YSL Muse Two Medium leather tote:

I like this colour combo but I love it in purple (Net-a-Porter US, $1250).

And the latest collaboration between Longchamp and Jemery Scott is a hoot!

Now it's time for some bling. Love the colours (the Anton Heunis necklace is my favourite and it's not even my style).

I want Salma Hayek's earrings!

Want an easy pop of colour? Try one of these fun cocktail rings from Lotus Mendes.

I'm keen to go to the Love Lace exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum starting on 30 July. Anyone want to join me?

P.S. I'm not responsible for any spending by CCM readers after reading this post :-P


  1. Oh goodness, what not to like about this post? Loving the colour blocking, those candy rings! ah. You shall be responsible for any purchases :P

  2. Miranda <3 gosh I wish I picked up this mag when I was out this morning, damn!

  3. Looks like a decent issue of InStyle for a change!

    I have to say the pink Oroton bag isn't as nice in real life. It's a bit basic frankly. They had it in lots of colours and although the leather is nice the shape and style is a tad nothing really.

    I do love the purple YSL though...

  4. Oh - and if you want the Oroton bag, use the code SALE20 at checkout for an additional 20% off! Sale ends tonight though...

  5. Miranda sure can rock a red lip!

  6. Sara Philips dress is gorgeous. And yes, Mrs Hinze and Miranda change the attitude about pregnant women's looks.

  7. Thanks for the recap of Instyle - hope TLG is getting better

  8. I'm sorry to hear about TLG having an ear husband has one too but for some reason I don't feel the same sympathy LOL.

    Miranda is stunning as always...

  9. @mallhaciel and @sassandspice - Thanks! TLG is AOK now, Mr C is still affected by the cold though.

    @Kitty - thanks for the feedback and the discount code. I haven't even used my new Kate Spade bag yet so I'm not planning to buy another bag any time soon.

    I love all the comments ladies - they make me very happy :-D

  10. I think Miranda Kerr is so stunning! Gorgeous collections of shots here :)

  11. Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Appreciate it

  14. I believe everything composed was actually very reasonable.
    However, what about this? what if you were to write a killer headline?
    I ain't suggesting your content is not solid, however suppose you added something that grabbed folk's
    attention? I mean "Pretty things from ... In Style August 2011" is a little plain.
    You could glance at Yahoo's front page and see how they create news titles to grab people to open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about everything've written.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
