Miss McCartney

So I said I wasn't going to buy anymore magazines, but of course I lied (bet you saw that coming). Sienna Miller graces October's UK Vogue, so for this I'll make an exception. Now I don't exactly count myself as one of her fans (the only film I've seen her in is Stardust, and she had a smallish part), but I'm an ardent admirer of her fashion sense (wish I could toss on a [faux] fur gillet, some ripped tights or leopard-print pants and not feel like I escaped from the circus). And while I find this cover a little garish (maybe it's, I don't know, all the obnoxious giant PINK FONT EVERYWHERE), I still plan to scoop this issue up. What was it that sold me? Not Sienna in all her blondeness (though the publishers may try to weave their wicked spell)... it's Sienna in Stella McCartney.

Stella Stella Stella.If I had a big pile of money in my backyard to swim around in like autumn leaves, I'd spend it on Stella McCartney's luxury knits and killer (vegan) boots (after donating a whopping portion of said cash to the World Wildlife Fund and orphanages, of course). She has such a knack for imbuing basics (essentials!) with unexpected modern updates and works with a neutral pallette that's simply sophisticated, never boring. I crave her black and white basics and blush-colored dresses, her striped knit sweaters and drool-worthy handbags. And, oh yes, did I mention? Most of her line is organic (all of it is vegan). Stella makes me happy.
Slouchy white top + skinny black pants + bright clutch. Done! A high-waisted skirt to go mad for...
A fun take on navy with scream-worthy shoes. Eee!Kate Hudson is so gonna wear this little gold number...
But I am so craving this trench. Sleek! Shiny!

Check out the full lookbook from her latest resort collection here.

It's fitting, then, that last night I had a dream I was her mama... Linda. And I was lovingly watching Paul in concert. *_* It may sound sick to some of you, but trust me, it was lovely. Not at all creepy! I swear.

Plus Linda and I have a few things in common...
Veggie love. Cameras. And some pretty decent music. ;)

The champagne dress in the collection is just beautiful! And I used to own a high waist skirt like that one there. Style coming back again.

Sienna looks gorg, but ya, the hot pink, block lettering is a bit much.

Love Stella McCartney's line!

stella mccartney was the first designer i ever really paid attention to - i think i noticed her when she designed for chloe. she's so creative and yet sensible (as in her lines translate to real life well) at the same time!

Hahahha....the bright pink font IS annoying! I never really paid attention to Stella McCartney. But now I can see why everyone loves her..... Anybody can wear her clothes! Especially me... :)
