Circle, Circle, Dot, Dot ...

I suppose this is the best I could really hope for. I've had absolutely no time to myself for almost a month, which inevitably means no time for blog posting, either. I suppose it's also typical that the one night I have a spare moment to post, my ever-ringing cellphone and Facebook instant messaging are also vying for my attention. Oh, and the sound of my mother nagging at me to get my chores done. Like I said, typical. There's so little free time in my life that I haven't even had a chance to read the latest editions of not one, but three different fashion magazines. Oh, VOGUE, Harper's BAZAAR, and W ... please remember that I do still love you!

Anyways ... between school, homework, my job, and driving my sister wherever she demands to go, I still have found the time to be intrigued by some of this season's beautiful cut-out patterns. I know, I know; it's a trend long pored over and I know that it has been discussed to the point of boredom, but I'm not talking about the typical cut-outs that subtly emphasize an outfit. I'm talking about the ones where it is actually the outfit that is the subtle part.



Perhaps one of the most talked about crazy cut-out designs is this ballroom gown by Viktor & Rolf. It was worn by Katy Perry at the MTV Europe Movie Awards, thereby causing quite a stir. I for one absolutely adore it! It's one of my favorite dresses as of recently; maybe when I'm finished with my prom dress, I'll hack gaping holes into it. At least I'll be on trend!



This Les Copaines jumpsuit also caught my eye immediately. It's not every day that you see an entire outfit held together by holes! What a fantastic color against the skin, too. I can hardly imagine any outfit sexier than this one that wouldn't require a rating of MA. Love it!



Marni, Marni, Marni ... how I adore you. This outfit is a bit of a reverse-Les Copaines, but nonetheless just as gorgeous. I love the silhouette it creates against the body. Quite intriguing, no?



There is only one thing I can say about this fantastic Alice and Olivia dress: support the second amendment, because this dress is the best way to bare arms!

Oh, how I hate to stop writing, but I must. There's so much I need to get done right now! I apologize profusely for not sharing my opinion on the fashion world as often as of late, and I promise I will try harder to get more posts up! There is just one more thing I have to touch upon before I depart. I would like to hold a moment of silence for this month's Harper's BAZAAR cover, because it is flat out the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I'm honestly thinking of having it framed.

  12. That Victor & Rolf collection was insane. I'm still amazed how they managed to keep the structure of each dress with those huge cutouts. Love that editorial pic! But I do have this thing for giraffes :)
