dazed and dazzled (gag gag gag gag gag)

edit: imagevenue was being stupid, i reuploaded them. apologies!

Since I've been pestered by many a-lurker through AIM to post something for today, I guess people actually do read my blog other than those who--

HAHAHAHA another one pestering. Boo.

Anyway, on to the material. I have subscriptions to three magazines. Wired, New York, and Alternative Press (well, manage to get them eventually so that counts). I would love a subscription to NYLON, i-D, FRUiTS, or Elle Korea, Lula, and then I happened upon Dazed & Confused. I am in love with the latest issues spreads.

I'm particularly infatuated with the menswear editorial. I printed it all out and now it's gracing my wall of ever-growing editorials and inspirational photos. It's not interesting background wise, but that doesn't mean the styling doesn't kick ass. Isn't it fantastic?

Thats a rhetorical question. Damn right it's fantastic. The fact one of my favorite male models is gracing Dazed's shiny glossy pages also helps. I mean come on. Adrien is ridiculously good looking. Presenting to you, Shanty Town.

Other edits I liked:

Flower Power. Jordan is such a BEAUTIFUL model, I really want to see more of her on the runways. Alien blondes kind of piss me off with their never ending army of replicas. This is why I prefer Japanese RTW's more than their counterparts--they tend to use more Asian and African American models.

I'm saving the best for last, however. Presenting...


So many ideas and flowers and spring and ahhhdhfdsf I'm fast becoming an illiterate mess if I'm not so already. I was going to write a post up on Dries van Noten's last runway alone, but this pretty much sums up it's wonderfully bold chaos. If you're going to do a pattern, I say do it bold and they went for it. I check out their past season's RTWs and I really do adore their Fall and Spring 08. And those shoes and socks in this photoshoot... it's easy to do and pretty! I can't wait to wear my floral tights with sandals. Also, if those knee protectorcapthingswhateveryoucall it remind me of my pink racing bike. Also the fact I always get called a hooker on said pink racing bike. Good times.

And that last shot? It actually made me want to buy the Balenciaga. So what if it looks like a spacesuit? IT'S A RAD. SPACESUIT.

Overall the entire shoot reminded me of Stephanie and Susie for their amazing usage of florals. Also, the poses screamed Steph in a good way. Hah, I really feel compelled to wear every thing I own floral tommorow and just ignore the fact my cold SUCKS.

p.s If anyone can send me an invite to become a member of the fashion spot, I'll love you forever and send you brownies and bow ties.


Baggy jeans, I HATE YOU. You make butts disappear everywhere, when I could be looking at very agreeable butts. WHY?! You don't deserve to be $158. Go crawl up into a corner and starve yourself, you poor excuse for clothing.
