stegosaurus in yo' head, in yo' face, in' yo' soul.

I am being bombarded with awesome editorials here. If my printer could cry it would demand a break or something; I've been printing out scans for the past half hour. Shh....don't tell my dad, he'd probably cry at the 'waste' of ink.

I don't think wanting to hold these editorials in my hand is a 'waste'....

Vogue Italia 04/2008, Karen Elson by Craig McDean
What do you think of Caren? She could have been suitably creepy in Chronicles of Narnia, she's got a signature look and it works for me here. I'm looking at the clothes anyway so I could really care less. Ignoring the fringe. Eugh. This is what Spring should be. Whimsical but fierce. I love, love, love everything about this shoot ignoring the weird bangs that make Karen look like....well, not as good as the clothes. The entire spread reminds me of a watercolor come to life.

I'm going to experiment with stripes and chiffon now. When I think of Spring, I think of pastels, chiffon, and legs all around, but also combat boots and leather jackets, cigarettes and tulips. I think this editorial encompasses the carefree, colorful aspect and that's always lovely. Plus, it's really easy to recreate this look. Some things I found on Ebay...

  1. 80s vtg floral strapless ruched sculptural party dress from PLAYGROUND VINTAGE. I'm not going to like the end price, but I think such an ontrend and outrageously awesome dress such as this would merit a high end price. Not like I can fit int an xs anyway.....I'm looking at you, Zoe!

  2. Vtg 60s White Floral LACE Mini PARTY Sun Dress XS from hippogorillagiraffe vintage. Very pretty. Very liebemarlene to me, actually.

.....does this dress remind you of Balenciaga or does it remind you of Balenciaga?
