Amish Country

WHOO HOO! PICTURES! Sorry for taking so long, school is sucking my soul!

Anyways, work holiday party this weekend, partied hard. Also got an amazing little dress that my friend WObangs gave her Amish stamp of approval. So of course there were photos taken... and here they are!

Fuck yeah, gorilla head!

The Happy Amish Couple.

Okay, couldn't come up with some witty name for this post so I was quite blunt.
Lately, I have had a thing for socks. Mostly inspired by the Dior ads with Karlie Kloss, I must have a wide array of cute socks for the winter. I want every colour and length so I can layer them and have them match every article of clothing I own.

That is all. Photos will hopefully be ready tomorrow.

Cell Block Tango

Besides having no life (courtesy of school) I have no way of taking photos for here, so posts are going to be sparse the next little while.
However, I did manage to get a couple of pictures of my sister wearing a necklace I made for her. It is a pretty sweet piece made up of an old chain, a cell block key and an antique bullet. So now for PICTURES!!!

My sister is kinda cute.

Keep an eye on here, I do have a few other jewellery pieces in the making at the moment that I will be selling.

Back to School

Sorry for disappearing there. Funny how uprooting your whole life and dragging it across the country with you will do that.
Anyways, I know it is a little late, but I started school last week. OMG PICTURES!

As you can see, Bill is very happy in his new home!
School is great, by the way.

I'm back!

I apologize for disappearing there, I finally have real internet!
Just a little update on New York Fashion week, I've been watching videos from the runway and let me just say... very disappointing so far.

I'm usually intrigued by Rag and Bone, but their spring line was a big WTF?!?!?! for me. What was up with the bondage tops?

Jason Wu was sophisticated as always. His dresses were great, his suits a little blah but a really nice consistency.

Diane Von Furstenburg is my hero. She makes chic so effortless. The colours, the bold patterns, the draped figured... so wonderful!

Watching Prabal Gurung, I was searching for a theme, but alas is was much to mish-mash for me. The colours were amazing, and they worked nicely together. But then the contrast of the black and white pieces were a head scratcher. And the dresses with the fringe skirts were ummm... interesting.

Darling Alexander Wang really brought it this time. I loved the interesting shapes he created and the new life the breathed into classic pieces. And I love seafoam. Love love love seafoam. The small hints of metallic were a really nice touch to the pieces because the didn't overwhelm. Overall, an A.

Derek Lam has never really done it for me, and this collection was no different. The pieces are nice and they go together well. I just have a hard time picturing them with any other garments.

Never been a big follower of Altuzarra and their Spring collection hasn't given me any reason to. Can we please get over animal prints for now? And I'm pretty sure most of these pieces have been done before.

Big Jill Stuart fan and her spring collection wonderful! I love her creative take on classic pieces and used of muted neutrals and soft patterns.

Thakoon was so boring I couldn't even finish watching the video.

Richie Rich was just a blast to look at! Even though I wouldn't wear most of the stuff, he makes the show into a huge theatrical event. With him, the mish-mash of garments is what makes him so unique! The royal blue baby doll is an adorable little party dress, and I do want the nude splatter dress. What makes the show complete though is the cast of characters who model the clothes. They are so entertaining, and who doesn't love Ellen?

And then there is always old faithful: Marc Jacobs. Not his best line, but finally something original. I especially loved the lack of WHITE. I hate white. And this homage to the forgotten fashion era, the seventies, is wonderful! Love the big floppy hats, the mixing of bold yet muted colours.

I'm hoping for more as the week continues...

From the most subtle barrette to the most extravagant of bejewelled crowns, head pieces are a total must have for fall. There is a massive variety of pieces so everyone is guaranteed to find something to suit them. Feather fascinators, silk turbans, native headdresses and even a few new approaches to the tiara; something to complement any style.

Marie Antoinette - the original Lady Gaga

Okay, Ms. Antoinette was a little more subtle.

Olivia over that Original Seed has many other inspiring photos you should check out.

I am personally investing in a native feather headdress. What will you wear on your head this fall?

Rainy Day

When I was little, my best friend has this dress that I was very jealous of. It was navy blue with white flowers and I always wanted to wear it. So when I recently came across this pair of vintage shorts with the same fabric, I freaked out. I knew it was meant to be! So now for... PICTURES!

It started raining on me =(

My heels kept sinking into the wet ground. Not fun.

Top - American Apparel
Shorts - Vintage
Shoes - Vintage
Sunglasses - Vintage
Ring - H&M

Tomorrow is my last shift at Fashion Crimes. I'm preparing for an ocean of tears.
