The Chic Spot's Top 10

Here are the things that are currently tickling my fancy.

1. Jean Paul Gaultier's croc overalls at Paris Couture week.

2. Judith Leiber's Cupcake crystal-embellished clutch ($4295 at
The jaguar clutch also deserves honorable mention.
3. Lady Gaga's Malta press conference.
Favourite quotes include, "I'm inspired by fashion. I'm inspired by the moonlight. I'm inspired by sex and pornography and slasher films," and "Just get a good shot of my ass on the way out."

4. Chanel's wedding-style dresses at Couture week.

5. Sequined granny knickers

6. British hunk Freddie Stroma, who plays Cormac McLaggen in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

7. Underwear as outerwear...especially at Dior Couture.

8. Topshop's Fall 2009 "Marianne" collection (More pics here via nitrolicious)

9. Dover Street Market
Located on Dover Street in London, England, this shop, owned by Comme des Garcons' Rei Kawakubo, is a mixture between an art gallery, a museum and a couture store. Along with fabulous clothing from a wide range 0f designers (hand-picked by Kawakubo), port-a-potty changerooms, dinosaur fossils and cheetah heads are some of the few interesting things you will find in this five-floor shop.

10. miss rowe
Ashley Rowe is the go-to designer for the cool girls who have fabulous events to go to in Toronto. She recently had a customization event where customers could create their very own Miss Rowe piece during a 30 minute appointment. Now, the Toronto-based designer has just finished her Fall 2009 campaign shoot, with Fashion Television documenting the experience. Her site is currently under reconstruction, but you can check out her Facebook page to get a sneak peek of the Fall '09 shoot!
