come side with me

Anything that Alexander Wang does is never anything short of amazing. And whilst his spring summer 09-10 collection had everyone buzzing at New York fashion week, it really was his catwalk braid that set the tone for the new season.

Hit the blogs and you'll find every budding fashionista sporting the teased plait to Wang perfection.
Don't get me wrong, I do love it but as a hair-out kinda gal I'm issuing a warrant for the return of the tousled side part. Nothing excites me more than pictorials of the uber cool Alice Dellal in all her grunge glory with strategically placed side part, tousled just enough so you can glimpse her dark roots and wonder if she has just crawled out of bed.

Braids are of the moment, but the side part will always be epic.


  1. I love it, but I often find it hard to get enough volume at the roots...

  2. i love the top in the first picture,
    and the leopard jacket!

    love annie <3

  3. i love that grey knotted look dress, i'm a bit obssessed with grey, need to branch out!
    I wish my hair was long enough to braid!

  4. so simple but so effective! sometimes i wish my hair was long enough to pull of the tousled side part, but the three last photos are still stunning for us short haired girls.


  5. Pretty much everything about this is perfect!


  6. ooh great pictures, I'm completely fanatical about the side part right now!


  7. Hi, I love your blog, and the pictures! ^^
