london calling.. and i never felt so much i like!

giles deacon, gareth pugh, todd lynn, christopher bailey.. (do me daily) are all the designers that i have been obsessing over lately. i don't really seem to be craving the romanticism that have been getting all the rave for this spring, but i seem to be wanting the tough, sexy, rocking look. anybody with me? one glimpse of thoes giles deacon shoes in his spring collecion and i knew i would fall in love with the rest. and how could that gareth pugh possibly not stand out with his wacky, outrageous, dramatic designs? if not a fan of high-dramatics, perhaphs you should check out todd lynn and his simple, clean-cut, rock style- he designs for rockers such as mick, keith, bono and manson- sounds good? and last but not least, christopher bailey's designs for burberry prorsum always seems to be a success. his fall collection is one of my favorites so far this season- really you should check out the whole thing for yourself, it's very pleasing to the eye and will make you wish that he would be so kind to give his whole collection to you. okay this is a really hard (kind of fantasy) question, but i can't help but ask now that i've brought up the topic- if you were to choose a designer, dead or alive, to give you a wardrobe make-over who would it be?! would it be alber elbaz, mary quant, coco chanel, phoebe philo - oh the possibilities are endless, at least in my imagination.

if you happen to have three grand..

(what was once $4705 is now knocked down to $2823)
it wouldn't be such a bad idea to spend it all on this miumiu hand-painted dress. but oh boy, even while wearing the gorgeous dress and feeling gorgeous, i know that the big three and triple zero will be countinuously flashing in my mind. would you ever be willing to spend so much on a piece of clothing? how about a bag- it's ridiculous how expensive some of thoes are, but yet so gorgeous and tempting..
i love bleached jeans and i might even be bold and purchase white jeans for this summer. lovely bleached chloé jeans for $192.
chloe 3400, 2040
if you don't want to spend the three grand on that miumiu dress, then you should consider spending it on this beautiful chloé leather jacket, selling for $2040. and then you could spend the rest of the money on..
pirate boots
vivienne westwood pirate boots! $411, $611 at styledrops.com *sigh* i want you so bad

today is a snow day and i am feeling nautical.

for some reason, the idea of sailing on a summer day is very appealing to me. i don't really like the open sea, fear of sharks, drowning, etc., so i've always dreamed of going on lake michigan, which i got to sight this past summer while visintg chicago (northwestern uni)- absolutely beautiful. so now, sailing is on my things to do list before i die, has anyone gone? i used to dislike nautical/sailor clothes, thought they were too plain, but it seems like it's all i've been lusting after lately. so it'll definately be one of the trends i'll be including in my wardrobe this spring/summer.

i'm really falling in love with thoes chanel shades and t-strapped wedges, and that prada head turban is really growing on me now.

that bag.

ever since i spotted this bag, i've been salivating over it. maybe most of you are thinking, what's so special about it?- but i just love the simple and uniqueness of the bag. it's really the little details that makes me love the bag even more, look at the design of thoes straps! and plus, i am so tired of seeing thoes brown chloe-like/hobo bags that everyone in my school seems to own. oh, and don't even get me started on thoes hollister totes. anyways, after spotting keira with the bag, i seem to have fallen even more in love with the bag- and i am extremely jealous. i also want thoes pink chucks of hers (i have never owned chucks, don't hit me!)

my exicitment, it's overwhelming.

ny fashion week has officially started! check out the rtw fall07 collection from bcbg max azria, douglas hannant, nicole miller, rag&bone and yigal azrouël. be sure to keep checking back cause there's so much more to come!
rag&bone; favorite looks were both worn by irina. love the tough-military feel to the outfits and thoes shoes on the right- i must buy some for fall.
yigal azrouël; very loose and casual. it's usually all black and grey for me in the fall, but the green and mustard yellow combination is one that i will be trying out.
looks like things brightened up a bit compared to last years

out of the black.

snejana no more?

when her name is mentioned, one thing always comes to mind: skinny. she has been accused so many times of having eating disorders and suffering from anerexia- just look at her legs! most people say that they don't like her because of how skinny she is. i personally like her as a model, and wish that she would be able to continue her career on the catwalks. but there have been numerous rumors going on that she will be close to absence on fashionweek this feb. yay or nay? what other models do you think are going to dissappear?
i-d horror issue
one of my all time favorite of snejana's work was from the i-d horror issue. beautifully done, stunning picture.
