I'm gonna need more hangers.

pre fall 2012 [theyskens theory]

i can’t fight it anymore. i’m a thigh-skins girl. sometimes oversubscribing to fashion feeds will make you sick and tired and always wanting. its nice to come back to a few of my favorites now and then and get reminded of the things i’ve always really wanted but never got because i get magpie sidetracked. leather/hot/silver pants are still very much those things. also, now i wanna dye my cowboy boots silver and wear more sheer maxi dresses when i get back to sweet ole texas. yeah, your baby girl is a lil homesick.

sirene 2012 lookbook [wildfox couture]

nothing, and i mean nothing, will ever stop me from loving this sweet, sweet saturation.

 

stine goya [ss12] :: cover dk :: sretsis [aw12]

something i’m looking forward to buying here: knits

something i’m looking for: long coats

something that makes me look forward: digital prints

more or less [nanna van blaaderen]

omgaaaaad i can not wait for weather that will justify excessively large knits. minus 10 degrees! 10! degrees! :D

i wish i could knit one of these for myself. must acquire loom. and flock of sheep.

egle cekanaviciute

augh omg. her entire collection. some of it is a bit undone, but all the elements are beautifully committed and connected to the integrity of the medical brace. this was what i was going for for my ideal ss2011 look. oh and those shoes. damn.

o’2nd fall 2011

slightly exaggerated and adorable styling. love tim walker for that, i’m venturing back into cute clothes land.

i just found out i’m going to korea next month. i’ll be staying for 6 months teaching english to little punks. a part of me is excited, a part is taking it as serious business, and a part is a tree that hasn’t soaked it in yet. i think i’ve just been waiting a short, but starved time for something to happen.

shirt [DIY thrifted] :: dress [vintage saks] :: tutu (worn as slip) [japan] :: boots [vintage candies]

so today, i wore this and totally felt like this:

ann demuelemeester [ss2009]

and it felt AWESOME.  i don’t mind that mine is a diluted version, though someday i’ll make you, you beautiful bustle-y thing you. i can’t believe i figured out another way to wear that dress i thought i had gotten so sick of. happyhappyhappy :D

celine resort 2012, jil sander ss2011

i don’t mean to stick my nose in the air and go all “so when i was in europe, i was all inspired-like” but i can’t help it, it legitimately did. i think travel anywhere does that for people.

pre-EU, i was super into looking pristine and bleached out, very jil sander/calvin klein, but after seeing that EVERYONE does the tailored minimalist look, i got kind of sick of it while i was there. i have this tendency to repulsively reject over saturated trends, even ones that i’m really into. i’ve bounced back since then of course, but i did get really into florals and leather jackets. not that i wasn’t before, but even more so now: they are solid favorites. the thing with florals is that i like them in a more graphic or abstract sense, no liberty prints or that hippie girl stuff. i need the pattern to be aggressive and bold, playing on outlines, cut-and-paste. i’m surprised the floral bit about jil sanders ss2011 didn’t take hold. whew!

the only thing is, i’m pretty sure these celine photos will be all over in the next few months, because it’s well, celine, or rather the PPP (the phoebe philo problem). so i might have to involuntarily black list them until everyone gets back on the color blocking boat.
