La Roux

Let's hear it for Super-Awesome-Female Tuesday!!!

La Roux makes amazing music (that i can actually stand, this is remarkable because i am veeriii picky about pop.)
and she's also amazingly fashionable....
aaaand she's also amazingly beautiful.
and im trying to think of a different adjective, but i'm drawing a blank.
here is a smidgen of the amazing that is LA ROUX (to be said in deep announcer-like voice)

What I'm FALLing for this season...

Plaid, Gingham, Tweed, anything with a pattern and TEXTURE on a jacket.

STUDS...on everything
Silence & Noise studded denim shirt
Bona Drag studded ballet shoes

Homegirl needs some tights! of the purple persuasion perhaps...
Overalls with tights and boots for the cold season closing in on us.

Oxfords. Any. Color. Any. Style. All. Amazingg.

Found backstage at Givenchy....

Isn't it ironic? Don't you think?
The designers push for toothpicks as models, 
yet this was posted backstage at one of the most exclusive brands in the fashion industry. 
(I have come to believe the bigger you are the pickier you are)

Tralala I love you Rover

So this is spring fashion show time, so you lucky readers get to sift through many many mannnnyyyy reviews of what the little people think of the big people.  Me myself personally am discovering that i am an emerging fan of Missoni.  I honestly didn't care much at all for the line, but their last two shows have really pulled me over to the knitted side of life.
Spring wasn't as wow as fall, but that's not to say i didn't enjoy what i saw immensely.

Two favorite looks.

You thought there'd be a part 2, didn't you.

Gucci-I suppose this is a post on white clothes. and this is the ultimate white dress.

Four Fendi looks. Dammit i am one jacket away from saying four fendi frocks. Damn you beautiful jacket! Love the draping, the asymmetrical sleeves, and the fraying.


DKNY-what i wear to school in the alternate universe of happy children in public schools (please note: this happiness is not induced by drugs or any other substance, they're just happy.)

Dolce & Gabbana
The Hair.
The End.

Not sure if this is Taboo or not.

okay so just up late because i went and got coffee at 10:30. Good ideas do NOT come in threes methinks. and i ran across THIS post on Knightcat.  This girl is seriously channeling my feelings on everything right now...anyways

5 best things about the post.
(think of this as an interactive activity, you read my comments and then can go look at the post and see if it fits together. checks it foo)

1. The movie Rushmore. (filmed at my school, wtf plotline, gotta. lurve. it.)
2. The picture of Natalia Vodianova (somehow in a black and white picture i can see color in her eyes.)
3. Pictures of people smoking. (if you are becoming annoyed by the things in the parentheses juuust buildabridgeandgetoverit)
4. The last picture (lola-it even has BABIES(no katchet not sad babies))
5. Chandeliers (my dream room has three chandeliers in it.)

Take Home-Basically just go look. because thats whats going on in my brain....creeeepy

So...BCBG Max Azria has been one of my favorite designer brands for......oh, just as long as I could remember, 
but after viewing the 2010 RTW, I was, to say the least, a smidge disappointed. 
Looking past the impeccable craftsmanship, gorgeous patterns, and a few interesting pieces, I found the overall show a bit trite. 

A few pieces I did enjoy:

Has everyone been channeling their inner Calvin lately, or what??

Anna Sui for Target....
I saw it for the first time in the store today, and to put it nicely,
I was UNimpressed.
Cheap designs for the price, materials not that great either...
Please tell me if I'm wrong...here

silly little musical side notes from Sateen

Call to Arms

People. for the sake of our nation, for the sake of aesthetics, please go look.

I love every part. the Native American styled tattoos, the way that the Mulleavy sisters make everything they touch infinitely more beautiful than anything in the history of human beings not being naked, the shoes, the tatters, the gingham. ALL OF IT PEOPLES, ALL OF IT!
its almost painful. srsly, gonna need to take some r&r to recover from the deep emotional shock.

psychologically trying to recover, Sateen

Hey this is a minipost, just want you guys to check out my
lookbook.nu site, and please tell your friends about us!

My day in so few words

Still infirmed. although barely so.
today i watched more Arrested Development
(changed my facebook status after every note-
worthy joke, needless to say status overload.)

I then started to browse, and stumbled upon
The Beautiful Life, the new CW show.  Its
not a startlingly profound show or anything
but i do adore the cast, and the first show
was quite enthralling.

DRESS!!!!!) also loved how i can now
recognize these things. you can learn a lot in a
year :)

Toodles Sateen

Ay Caramba

So i know a silly duck, and this silly duck lost it's camera...
anyways, so until i raise my funds...i shall have to satisfy the loyal readers with
*sigh* yes, internet only pictures.

alas this may not be too much of a disastre, because after all

so with that news
