For the past few months, I've been so busy that I've barely had time to eat or sleep, so of course I haven't had time to go shopping! Normally I make up for this by shopping online, but I haven't bought anything to spruce up my wardrobe - online or otherwise - for about six weeks. I'm starting to feel the urge to shop!

I've also just had a look at Shanghai Tang's A/W 10 press release.

The designers have focused on rendering beauty from destruction, using beautiful prints (to translate the dense network of highways) and vivid colors (that liken to satellite views of crowds of people and cities).
My favorite pieces from the collection -
Here are my favorites from Net à Porter (if I were to buy all of the following, the total would be just over £10,000. Whoa!)
