Longest post ever!

Hello Paris '99ers! I realise that due to my absolutely dismal discipline when it comes to blogging some of you may think that I had stopped, but oh no, all is well here at Paris '99, the sun is shining, the champagne is flowing and the clothes are plentiful! I give you the mother of all posts, a load of new arrivals, to take you through to the next post which will certainly come sooner than this one! xx

Alexander McQueen lace applique silk blouse, need I say more ;), divine. Sz 42 (Fits 8-10-12) Now SOLD

Wow, Chloe buckle closure small leather bag with two compartments and though unseen is on a long leather strap with metal hardware loops and buckles, perfect for across the body in summer, and of course winter too! Now SOLD

This jacket shows what an amazing cut with a bit of detail will do. Jean-Paul Gaultier long line blazer with black pearl necklace detail. The necklace clicks into the larger stone and can be worn open or doubled back on the neck. The little ribbon detail provides an excellent balance, just so Gaultier! Now SOLD

Jean-Paul Gaultier Femme acetate/polyester blazer, silk lined, Sz It44 (Fits Aus 10-12)

Bam! Divine Givenchy vibrant orange dress made from swirling silk and finished with an edgy corset back. This one seriously won't last.
Givenchy Paris silk dress, Sz 36 (Fits Aus 6-8)

Stunning Versace Spring 2001 printed cowl neck dress. If this is not the 'dressonification' of summer colour I don't know what is!

Gianni Versace Couture printed viscose dress, sz It44 (fits Aus 8-10)

The fabric has to be felt and the finishing details have to been seen to really appreciate this jacket by the unfortunately defunct New York label Tuleh. It is a sturdy duchess satin which really gives strength to the boxy design and when worn with a skinny jean and clashing hat is a perfect autumn fashion jacket. Love it! Now SOLD

Tuleh New York double breasted 'pea' coat in duchess satin, sz US6 (Aus 8-10)

Back to Versace, this amazing printed patent leather evening bag with metal frame and chain is going to be stunning on the amazing woman who bought it literally the minute it touched down this morning. With plenty of space and a weight to be reckoned with its simply covetable! Now SOLD

Is it tweed, is it boucle, is it a houndstooth, a herringbone, a check? I can't tell you! This is a really intricately constructed fabric that eschews definition, apart from the fact that it is amazingly used in this perfectly fitting Michael Kors skirt suit. The jacket fits like a glove the has little rounded cap sleeves to just accentuate the shoulder line, while the skirt is just so lady-like and completes the look. With black pumps Carli Bruni would be jealous!

Iconic Junya Watanabe destroyed denim jacket. Intricately constructed to swirl around the body in a snail like manner is this jacket from the untouchable Japanese master Watanabe. I like his work as regardless of the bombast, stiffness, or volume of his work, it always relates back to the female form and as such is amazingly flattering. Gorgeous! Now SOLD

Junya Watanabe Comme des Garcons pieced denim jacket, sz S (Aus 8-10)

From one fabulous jacket to the next, is this Veronique Branquinho collarless skinny fit jacket with what can only be described as three perfectly folded pleats taking up the job of a lapel. I have matching pants for this jacket too, they will be uploaded soon in a pants special post.

Back with the warmer weather pieces, this Marni silk chiffon 'dry flower' printed top is gorgeous for layering, and the drawstring detailing can be left loose or gathered tightly for a complete change of mood.

Keeping on cute sheer printed numbers is this simply gorgeous Roland Mouret back button gathered shoulder blouse with its abstract print. I love this top for its youth, allure, sexiness minus vulgarity, all the things for which Roland Mouret is known! Now SOLD

Roland Mouret back button silk blouse, sz UK 8 (fits Aus 6-8)

And to leave you on a positively summer note are these Pierre Hardy architectural peep toe mesh pumps with stunning heel, perfect for the hot days that seem to be here to stay.

Pierre Hardy structured white mesh heels, sz 40 but fit more like 39.
