Dior Couture Fall 2010: Things I Love

So the Fall 2010 Couture shows just happened in Paris... Givenchy, Armani, Chanel, Elie Saab, and more. But I think hands down the most amaaaaaazing collection was from John Galliano for Christian Dior. Amazing.

The whole collection was floral (as was the set) and you got inspiration of petals and colors and textures. The models had their heads wrapped in cellophane (like a bouquet perhaps?). And their hair was flipped and high and beautifully styled.

I've pasted a couple of my favorite looks below:

Total brilliance!

Chair from Canada: Things I Have

Falling into more of 'design' than 'fashion', here is a new chair I bought for my bedroom.

I walked passed the store OK over the weekend and saw the chairs displayed outside, in a bevy of colors. Gray, blue, green, and of course my favorite... yellow! I couldn't resist! I stopped by the store three times that day (luckily it is around the corner from my house) to look at the chair and then finally had to buy one.

Knowing me, it wasn't much of a decision on which color to get. I loved the brightnesss of the yellow and knew immediately it would sit in the corner of my bedroom (as pictured below).

The salesman told me it is made in Canada and that the design has been produced since the 50's. The plastic seat just fits onto the ring-shaped frame, and then you are set to sit.

Now, yellow was my first color choice but I may go back and get more of these chairs. Then the quandry will become, what color is next...

In the meantime, check out OK's website for more home and gift inspiration:
