pieces of ART

Shoes are my most favorite thing to admire. They truly can be works of art. That are meant to be admired and not worn. These are Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte. And I would not wear these, I would be terrified to ruin their amazingness. The only place they could be worn is on the set of a Lady Gaga music video (like the Alexander McQueen masterpieces she wore in Bad Romance).

flipping through my bazaar the other night i immediately stopped the moment i saw this photo.

the dress is exactly the cut/color/everything i've been obsessing over lately and the pink shoes just put this ova the edge!

marchesa, milly, oh my!

Alas Fall Fashion Week 2010 in NYC is coming to a close. But these two collections still have me droooooling. The Marchesa gown, the one with all the black and white tulle almost gave me a heartattack. There is NO PLACE I would EVER have to wear such a dress, but it is truly a piece of art and I would buy it to just put on display and admire. The white feathery dress with the black waist is sorta similar to some of the Jason Wu dresses I loved. Hmmm. Let's hope h&m or topshop come out with an awesome knock-off!

While the Milly collection had a few distractions, namely: hot pink tights, green tights, and plaid pumps (I happened to like the berets the models were sporting), I loved the classic French inspiration of the collection. Very school-girl-eque. And I also happened to like the white tights, a little kindergarten cute, but still well done. That said, I think white tights should be left for 5-year-olds or girls with model proportions, juuust sayin.

and i think that will wrap up my runway posts for this fashion week.

who said diamonds are a woman's best friend?

i'm pretty sure you can have two best friends (we learned this in elementary school) and i'm pretty sure dog would be woman's other best friend! talk about someone who will never leave you and always unconditionally love you. makes me miss my puppy at home.

dear H&M...

YOU need to sell online in the United States. The market would be HUGE. Topshop sells online, so c'mon now... (acourse, this just may be my selfish American side coming out as well)
So since I wanted to put off studying a little longer, I decided to look up what other countries could buy online, which was really hard because the site was in other languages, like Finish, German, Swedish and Norweigan. I picked to look at the German store because I figured their language might be the easiest to navigate (I mean the german word for elbow is elbogen). It wasn't too bad. Anyways, I found these SUPER cute dresses that I HAVE to have. And I found the shoes right away, "schuhe"!!!! The ones I like cost 19,95. Whatever that means. Going on foreign sites is like a little cultural lesson, I like it! So then I went to the Norweigan page hoping that they would have a different selection, but to my disappointment it was the same page, just in a different (more confusing) language. But the Norweigan word for shirt is "topper" which I found kinda funny.

layered to a T

FIRST OFF. I would just like to say I loveloveloveloooove fall fashion week. My eyes are having themselves a feast this week. Sorry for the bombardment of a bajillion runway pics. The week is almost over but until then I am going to indulge myself!

These are a few of my favorite looks from Rebecca Taylor's show. All perfectly layered for fall. With feminine touches that I adore, I should add.
By the way there were many more looks of hers that I loved but I thought that might be too much runway for today...

the bangs.

i love erin fetherston. and i loved her aw10 just as much as i loved her ss10 collection. for fall 2010 her muse was Nico and while she did have some pantsuits thrown in there she stayed true to herself with ever-so-perfect flowy dresses.
particularily love the last little number. the bodice is so cute!
but MOST OF ALL i loved the bangs all her models (and she!) were rocking. makes me wish i had the face shape/perfect hair thickness to do it. but of course i don't.

black and white and amazing all over

so many accessories so little time.

think pink

Valentine's Day weekend just ended. And I wore pink the entire time! Which is such a deviation from the black/white/shades of gray norm. First I wore my new Indah dress to a (anti-)Valentine's Day party with my friend, Maja who goes to Carrol College and I will be visiting in two weeks!!!! Dan asked why I was wearing curtains, but then ever-so-nicely said that they were "cute curtains". Sunday morning, Dan and I went on a Valentine's date to Mickey's Dairy Bar on Monroe St. It was a heydey there, apparently lots of people like to go out to breakfast on Sunday mornings. Anyways I ordered ONE strawberry pancake and their portions are so large I only ate half of it. (Of course I finished the rest when I got home). We also ordered one of their famous shakes. Mint-flavored! I am still full 9 hours later... Oh and I wore my new Marc cardigan that I got at the winter maxwell sale at Bop. Love that it's so bright.

Oh and that's a pic of my British Vogue. I had to put it up because it's pink and purple!! So festive for this weekend. + olivia

alice + olivia makes my favfavfavvvvv little party dresses. i am so excited to see which of these shopbop gets! i would wear every. single. one. of. these. adorrrrrable.

velvet, thigh highs, oh my!

Especially that little dress and that GIANT tote.
Marc Jacobs tote, YSL ring, Milly bathing suit, Gianvito Rossi ankle strap heels, Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses, Jeffrey Campbell ballet flats, Lauren Merkin clutch, Jessica Simpson platforms, Rebecca Taylor dress.
