Well, with a new year (and new decade) comes new inspiration. I think recently, I've become really dark or whatnot. Now, I'm drifting towards androgynist-- as in oxford shirts, cut-offs, etc. I also like the idea of adding a classic touch: red lipstick, feminine jewelry. Here's my inspiration for the next year.

I really abandoned this blog, didn't I?
I'll comment back ASAP.
Hope to talk to you all soon!

I don't think my style can be more properly epitomized in 3 photos. I definitely need to invest in more oxford shirts and when spring arrives, more denim shorts. The black tights ordeal is already covered. Oh, and I need the red lipstick too!
So, yeah, who has kind of disappeared off the face of the earth? Me! I've been overwhelmingly busy with school and Fall Play (it opens in 5 days!). And my grades are straight B's...with one roundable A (in my hardest class, what the heck). So, another unexpected hiatus might soon come.
But, I'll comment everyone back, and thanks for still reading. Since yesterday, which was the first time I checked my site in forever, I have had 200 views. Really? Wow!

I'm currently watching Flight of the Conchords. "Sally," if any of you care.
But, anyways, Paris Fashion Week is just around the corner, and I was thinking what I would wear if I was invited. Or just to any fashion week in general. But, I thought that you have to balance comfort and chic. You're running around all day! So, here's my idea:
First of all, I always feel comfortable in a pair of jeans and an over-sized oxford shirt. If I have the choice to wear that pairing everyday, I would without doubt.
And who could pass up the opportunity to wear Givenchy boots?
I realize this post is REALLY late. So please bear with me!

But, yet, it's also my declaration of love to Proenza Schouler's Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough for their AMAZING S/S 10 collection. Aren't I just that brilliantly, IQ 150-clever for that name?
But, WAIT! It has color? Tye-dyes? Multiple colors way out of the spectrum? And Gin, you like this? I mean, let's put this bluntly and in all caps: IT'S THE TOTAL OPPOSITE OF ME.
But, just look at how interesting this collection is. It's rebellious and cool at the same time. Plus, the sunglasses are out of this world. Don't we all need a break from Ray-Bans at some point?
The collection has a mix of tribal accessories (how L.V. S/S 09), a large cube of acid, and a whole lot of relaxation. I made fun of my Civics teacher for wearing his jacket around his waist intentionally on a field trip once (yes, I can be cruel with lack of sleep). But, here, it's just so...cool.
Even though the white dresses borderlined straight-jackets (I'm not scaring off the human race by posting them), I give a standing ovation for P.S. I have never been so wowed by their collection. Just amazing.
By the way, changing the playlist. I don't think you can listen to "Run Run Run" so many times without having to run away.

Really enjoyed Erin Wasson's collection. Except I live in New England. Cold. Most of the time. And my body's not that much of a wonderland. I feel so uncomfortable showing off my abs like Freja in the first look. But, otherwise, super fantastic. (And Irina's pixie cut? Kind of sorta AWESOME.)
When I first saw this, I almost screamed. I LOVE! J'DORE! ME ENCANTA! (Sorry Spanish speakers, can't do the upside down exclamation point.) I'm wearing this to prom, enough said. Or if I suddenly get invited to some chic event in place of an awful school dance, then yes. (I hate dances.)
On my old blog, City Chic Please, I wrote a love letter to David Neville and Marcus Wainwright. Yet again, they have read my mind. They design so much to my aesthetic, it's creepy. I would write another love letter, but that would be really overdoing it. (Oh, if you want to read my former love letter, click here.)
Please bound and gag the tacky beach setting. But, the clothes were really awesome. Not as great as the S/S 09 lookbook with Kirsten Dunst. I still liked this collection though.
Will. Wear. This. Outfit. AH! This wasn't my favorite A.Wang collection (I'm a big fan of his early collections), but I loved the whole twisted Americana feel to this one. And I will put my hair in a braid sometime soon. Kind hard---my hair's curly. But, the battle will be on!
I've been so busy lately from school/fall play (director! whoohoo!)/family stuff that I'm pretty much collapsing from stress...hence me being a week late on this blog post. Just as a warning, it might take as long for the next post too.
And Brit, if you're reading this, I will forever miss NYC Art Style. RIP

Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again - Bob Dylan
Basically, I'm so busy! If I don't update for a while, don't worry--- I'm alive! Just not on the computer.
But, hopefully, you'll enjoy the playlist. I'm somehow going back into the vault to look for better music. Some of this stuff I listened to a VERY long time ago, but it's still good. If you're looking for fashion on here, I'm saving all the fashion stuff for Fashion Week. Be patient.
And thanks for the wonderful comments...and for tolerating my obvious talent on Microsoft Paint, of course.

a) NO ARCTIC MONKEYS ALBUM IN BOOKSTORE! I like to buy the CDs in the bookstore, so I have it on hand. If I know I'll never find it, I'll buy it online. But, I was very upset on August 25th to find no "Humbug." Boo-hoo.
b) One of the things I hate about bloggers, fashion bloggers specifically, now-a-days is the desperation to be famous. And I've seen this a lot. They'll start dressing to what they think is "avant-garde" (note the quotation marks). I know a lot of bloggers have recieved from fame (case in point, Tavi and Jane), but nobody can be like them. If we all were famous, that'd be, well, dumb. I hope I don't sound as though I want an equal class society or something! It's just that you should be yourself and not cater to others in order to become famous.
c) Last year, this girl, who says like more than necessary, in my school found Paramore to be her ultimate love and decided to add bird's nests to the sides of her hair to look "scene." Figure A describes it.
Now, it seems as though she found Cory Kennedy and tries to be like her.
I don't mean to poke fun. But really, don't follow what other people do. Cory Kennedy is not a fashion pariah. Hayley Williams most certainly doesn't one either. Follow the beat of your own drum. Be a Ringo Starr. Or Phil Collins. Or something...
I really hope I don't sound like a bitch. I'm not. I have a lot on my mind, and why not write it on here?
I also hope you enjoy my obviously protegic paint skills.
And thanks for all the comments! Sorry it took a while to get another post in!

a) Isn't Diane Kruger just too cool? (even though she is a Twilight fan)
b) Doesn't Alexa Chung have the most AMAZING guests? I mean, Trinny and Susannah were on the other day! I love them! (And if you don't know who they are, here's the Wikipedia link: x)
But, the best guest of all...
Ah, he's just too beautiful, isn't he? (And if you ask who he is, I'll be upset.)
(Yes, I do know he's dating Mickey O'Brien...don't remind me...)
And thanks for the nine comments while I was gone. If you were wondering where my sister attends...I won't tell (oh man!). But, let me just say this. She goes to one of the best public colleges in the US (a "Public Ivy"), and it's located in Virginia. Pick one of the two. You have a 50/50 chance of getting it.
Also, school starts on Thursday (jeez, summer ended quickly!), so I'll be updating way less. Sorry guys!
And...guess what? I'VE BEEN GIVEN AN AWARD!
*cue "Eye of the Tiger" theme*
Yeah, the fantastic Lydia of Fine Grime has given me a Circle of Friends award! Thanks Lydia! You're pretty awesome too!
But, who shall I pass it on to? I would give it to everyone (seriously, I would!), but i'll pick Brit of Nyc Art Style. She's been a blogging friend of mine since my Xanga days!
Hope you guys enjoy your last week or two of summer!

I hate to say it, but whenever I see AA's Disco Pants, I think of Big Bottom from the movie, This Is Spinal Tap. I know everyone would die for these trousers if necessary, but you must admit-- the pants are exact replicas of Derek Small's pants there (far left with two-handle guitar). Take the reference however you want...I don't think it's either a compliment or a insult.
But, like Almost Famous, this is a great rock/music movie. It's just so funny and hillarious.
Anyways, thanks for the TEN comments. So happy!!
Also, I'm leaving to drop my sister off at college. I'm leaving Wednesday and not returning until either Saturday or Sunday. I don't know if i'll update in the meantime, but if not, this is goodbye for now!
Oh, and hope you enjoy the new playlist. I made it without realizing it's all 60s. If you hate the 60s, get out of here.

So, lately, I've been watching a LOT of Harold Lloyd films (*points to man above*). And yes, they're mostly silent. But, he was a famous silent actor in the '20s and starred in a lot of "talkies" after its creation. But, really, the films are fantastic. I just love them. My favorite is The Freshman, which is so adorable. And I love Joblyna Ralston, who starred with Lloyd in many of his films, including The Freshman.
But, Harold Lloyd basically was the inspiration for this. I also thought of someone reading a newspaper, like the picture above. I would have added some issue of NYT or something, but nah, it's good just the way it is.
Also, if you guys want to watch a clip of The Freshman, click here: x.
Edit: I found this fantastic blog post about a girl who used to be pen pals with John Hughes. This really opened my eyes about how much greater he actually was and made me miss him more than I really do. RIP John Hughes. Click here to read.

Bob Dylan & George Harrison; Neal Cassady & Jack Kerouac; the Lisbon Sisters; Rick Owens; Iggy Pop; and Julian Casablancas
So, this is really steering away from "fashion blog" per say. But, I've lost total inspiration, for now. Stick around and there will be a...turn around, I guess.
Friday, July 31, 2009
I know this is a fashion blog, but I really am interested in a lot of things equally, such as music, art, literature, and movies. Oh, and the taste of candy, haha.
And as you can see, no Beatles/George Harrison. You guys should already know I love them/him already.
Oh, loved and appreciated the feedback from the last post! I really appreciate it.
What are your current loves and obsessions?

Sorry for not updating lately. I've been so busy lately! I went to Harry Potter at midnight. Awesome, and yes, totally worth it.
Oh, and if you were looking for new music, sorry; less than half of it was recorded after 2000. Give me some new music to listen to!
