Hôtel de Mode is now on Tumblr!


I know it's been a very, very long time since I last blogged. Unfortunately, I've been wrapped up in finishing university, graduation, full time work & the general chaos of life. I am still in love with fashion as much as ever & still a bit of a shopaholic as well. My break from blogging made me realise that my passion lies with beautiful images more than it does with words so I've decided to move Hôtel de Mode to Tumblr.

You can find my new blog at here.

I like to the think of the new Hôtel de Mode as a montage of all things fabulous - High fashion mixed with street style, quirky & inspirational quotes, stunning interiors & much more.

Please check out my new blog & become a follower. 

A big thank you to anyone who has been following me or who has sent me a comment - I love reading them!

Rachel Gilbert Spring/Summer 2011

Lusting over the Emmy Dress!

So sophisticated - Incredibly Blair Waldorf-esque

I wore this dress recently & I'm still admiring it hanging in my wardrobe!

Edgy yet sophisticated

Rachel Gilbert Spring/Summer 2011 Collection
I am loving the latest Rachel Gilbert collection. RG is one of my favourite Australian evening wear designers. Her designs are classic, yet contemporary, & made from luxurious fabrics. I love a bit of bling & RG always has a fabulous array of embellished gowns. Every season she creates the most fabulous sequinned frocks. So far I have two of her lovely dresses in my wardrobe. The first I wore to my 21st a couple of years back & the second I purchased recently from the current collection. I have my 23rd birthday party coming up - perhaps I'll add a third to my collection!

Check out the rest of the collection at Rachel Gilbert

Wow! That was my reaction when I came across this editorial on Fashion Gone Rogue this morning. May I add that I was in a law lecture at the time & I'm quite sure the lecturer could tell that I was more adsorbed in whatever I was looking at on my Mac rather than the words rolling out of his mouth. This ed is everything I love - chic black ensembles, LBDs, lace, sheer panels, pretty pink lips & cat-like grey smoky eyes. The Australians glossies have definitely turned it up a notch in terms of delivering excellent editorials of late. Can't wait to grab a copy of the September issue when it goes on sale tomorrow morning!

These pics of Anne are so gorgeous. She has an amazing smile & the cream outfits look fabulous against the British red telephone box & bus.

Neon pink + Turquoise = Fabulous!

I bought a neon pink Oroton silk scarf a couple of weeks ago and I've been given so many complements on what a beautiful colour it is. Nothing like a little neon pink to inject some serious colour to an outfit

 Still loving maxis with a split

Elie Saab Fall 2011 Couture | Paris Haute Couture

Season after season, Elie Saab is always one of my favourites, if my not favourite, Haute Couture designer. It's probably because I can't resist a sparkly gown. Loving this collection of stunning pastel gowns that beautifully embellished. Fit for a fairytale!
