Thanks
At her NYC boutique--contact info @ annasui.com

It seems to be more of an advance hold than an actual pre-order ...

I think the raspberry shoes would be a wonderful accent to those light neutral shades ta-ta.

For me for spring, I hope to buy a Junya Watanabe trench with puff sleeves. I'll post a pic of the one I'd like.

OK, so I thought you might be skipping the headdress ...

not sure what w/e means tho

The price point on the shoes is not too bad ... about twice the price of a designer shoe (or one pair of say D&G), and I kind of have problem feet because they're half a size different, have a very high instep that causes me problems with certain styles, etc. And if you go with exotic skins, her shoes can even be less expensive than off the rack. I'm sure her prices will go up as time goes on ... but I'm hoping there's an advantage to having a last already made for you

ta-ta,I agree that the raspberry shoes in that style would make for a very striking and pretty spring Gothic look with the colours and pieces you've posted.How exciting to be able to have this done!! .And what a great idea.

Helena very beautiful choices for you...I love the trench and the blue top,and I adore the entire last outfit incl the shoes.Who's it by, (the last two outfits) if I may be so ignorant?

I won't be buying anything...next season was a total disappointment for me and I haven't seen anything that I liked at all.

Also being in Hong Kong weather in the summer, it doesn't make much sense for me to be buying much more than simple t-shirts/shirts and jeans, and I think I already have enough of those to hold me until next fall anyway. Jackets like that Junya trench helena posted are nice but for me to invest in an outerwear piece it just wouldn't get any use.

Thanks, Quirky

Work has put me in a bad mood this week, so I went shopping tonight for raspberry lipstick and gloss It was surprisingly hard to find, and I surprised myself by buying KissKiss! Everytime I see it in magazines I think how ridiculously expensive it is compared to MAC

Btw, those outfits are Marni ...

^ Helena, I daresay that headdress would make your weekends much more exciting Even a boring trip to the grocery store or cleaners would become eventful

Some lovely choices Helena, I had saved the same trenchcoat pic for my virtual wish-list...until I saw the Tao jackets

These are a few items I would love (the necklace in pic #2)
