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.

If only, if only...

We had an early dismissal from school today. And no rehearsal...and no tests (well, physics--- I'm in regular physics, who cares?). I'M FREE FOR ONCE!

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:

Jil Sander shirt, Giles & Brother necklace, Philip Crangi cuff, Lanvin bag, Givenchy boots, J Brand jeans

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!

P.S. I love you.

P.S. I Love You...a great song (click here) and a horrendous movie.

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.

I die.

It's Fashion Week. Therefore, I must speak Rachel Zoe-ese, obviously. Duh. Of course.

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

Psychobabble all upon your lips...

Tigerlily - La Roux
Dangerous Animals - Arctic Monkeys
What Have I Done - Anna Ternheim
Til There Was You - The Beatles
Qui Est Cette Fille - Yelle
Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again - Bob Dylan
Suedehead - Morrissey
I'm A Cuckoo - Belle and Sebastian
Mis-shapes - Pulp
Pisces Fish - George Harrison

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.
