Ohu

ohu |ˈəʊhuː|noun ( pl. same or ohus NZa working party.
Today's Fashion Brief will be Naeem Khan.
This man is a brillant dress maker. I LOVE formal dresses and beading and would live in them if I had the money (and the attitude!). Ok so it's my alter-ego, leave me alone.
Mr. Khan is Indian so he KNOWS beading and elegant fabrics. I loved his Fall 2013 Collection - I would wear almost everything that he sent down the runway. Quite impressive.
Here are my absolute favourites, since it might bore you to put all 47 looks here...


















WE LOVE YOU NAEEM!!

Today's Fashion Week Brief is  Rachel Zoe.
I fell in love with Rachel Zoe in 2008 when her reality show on Bravo came out. Um she is awesome. I love her style, personality, drive. She totally rocks in my book.
Here are my favourites from her Fall 2013 collection!
One variety of hers was a relaxed and comfortable look. This is one example - an oversized knit sweater with baggy leather pants. Love the pants!


Super cool hippie suit; looks like suede? Impeccably tailored and the result is beautiful.

LOVE these leggings. She also did them in black. So cute with the buckles at the bottom.

LOVE these boots. I think she also did them in black...

I'm a sucker for white and these white pants with blazer are KILLER.

Not a fan of this print, but I love the design of these pants!

The photo doesn't do this outfit justice; it was gorgeous on the runway. The scarlet color is divine.

Though this is a relatively simple look, I decided to put it on here because it just looks so classy. I like that she's putting a long-sleeved shirt under the dress rather than a blazer over the dress (for cold nights). And the collar is really pretty.

Again, same shirt, which I really like the gold design, but this time paired with black leggings  and over-the-knee boots.  This is totally a go-to outfit for me.

Love this simple look with the medium heel stiletto. The pants are awesome.

This look is so sleek to me. It's classy and kick-ass.

It's kinda weird at first and I'm not sure how the back of the grey shirt looks (how it connects with the turtle neck), but I think this was put together well with the cardigan and I would wear this any day.

I think this is a jumper suit. I usually loathe jumper suits but this one I could do. The ankle-length pants and sleeveless v-neck top with upturned low collar turns it into a "cool" jumper suit.

THANKS RACHEL!!
