About Me

I am an individual stuck in a rut who loves to re-name her 21 cats in the cabin she lives in at the edge of that god-awful forest on the other side of China that no one can reach.

Ernest is to writing as is...

Dree is to style.

I must say I was exstatic to discover that one of my favorite author's great-grandchildren, Dree Hemingway, has entered the fashion industry as a model. Not only is she beautiful and has a great sense of style, she exutes such a cool factor. I'm so excited to see what's ahead of her.

(Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been having bloggers' block, if you could word it like that. I'll comment back later today or tomorrow)

I'm feeling like a criminal...

I actually got no gifts today except for some fudge from my friend. My mum said she wants me to go with her tomorrow to get my gift...wonder what it is.

But, whatever. I'm now sixteen. I'm happy. I'm listening to Downtown Train. Yet again, I'm happy.

Otherwise, I have no great big birthday post. Sorry kids.

I'll post something better this weekend. Like what I got. And other stuff...pinky promise.
EDIT (3/22/09):
Okay, here's what I got:
- A cell phone (!!! it's been 3 years! But, it isn't here yet. I'll see what happens)
- Diana F+ Camera (Yes, 2-3 years as well...I got the 35 mm back because I have no darkroom which would make it impossible to develop 120 film)
- Bob Dylan's Blonde on Blonde

Love love love...

These boots!

I see so much potential in these beauties. They could go great with a blank skinny pant and a navy blazer.

My birthday is on the 20th (sweet sixteen). If only I had known sooner...

Fashion Week F/W 09

So, being that I just came home from a horrific cast party (I had to see Shopaholic again at 3 in the morning. It was a horrendous movie, yet again. No one listened to me..."You're always such a harsh critic, Gin. Maybe it's good?" Everyone fell asleep.), I never knew that something like a "party" could be so tortuous. Journey blaring from the speakers? Having a horrible selection of movies?

Oh, by the way, we rented out a movie theatre for our musical cast party. It was so dumb.

ANYWAYS, the only reason I find myself alive right now at 6:51 in the morning and not being dead for about a week is fashion week. Or all fashion weeks. My favorites? I had some...

Alexander Wang really redeemed himself from his last collection, which I personally didn't like much. Now, he knows his own skin concernning design, and he'll probably stay comfortable in that skin for a long time to come. And hey, that's a benefit to all of us, right?

I was suprised by Burberry this season. It was so simplistic. Okay, it was borderline boring, but I, not wearing a color brighter than white, liked it a lot. I would wear a ton of pieces from the collection and can't wait to grab inspiration for my wardrobe from it.

I also really enjoyed Rodarte. The boots, I must admit, aren't really practical but beautiful none the less. And the clothes! The amazing clothes! Such a great aesthetic.

What are your opinions on Fashion Week[s]?

Oh, and I want to say I will be updating more often and hopefully outfit posts soon. I'll have to see what happens concerning school (aka Chemistry), but I'll finally be back.

(And if none of this makes sense, it's about 7 in the morning.)

I'm in the school musical. Yeah, right, I really don't have time on my hands. But, we opened tonight, and it was supposedly really good! But, whatever...my feet kill!

So, I've had this weird music revolution. It's so weird, but I thought I'd share 5 songs with you or whatever. I'm too tired to talk about Paris Fashion Week.

I Want You - Bob Dylan

Bizarre Love Triangle - New Order

The Shadow Waltz - (Guess which musical...I will love you forever if you do)

Gimme Danger - Iggy Pop and the Stooges

Back in the USSR - The Beatles (or just anything off The White Album for that matter)

I realize all of these songs were released before 1985, but what the heck: I'm in the wrong generation.

And since I'm so...old with my music, give me some suggestions. Hope to be back after musical and when I get my chem grade back up to a B!

A Monthly Review- February 2009

February went so fast that I forgot to post a Monthly Review.


Norwegian Wood- The Beatles
Let me go to say that The Beatles is my favorite band of all time. And I've been listening to them so much lately, and I've fallen even more in love with "Norwegian Wood." Besides "Because," it's my favorite Beatles song, and this video has some really cool rare footage of the band.
1) Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony shoes
2) Alexander Wang Croc Blazer
3) Boy by Band of Outsiders Pants
4) Herve Leger Dress
5) Jenni Kayne Glasses
Need I say more?
