badass looks that are badass and have london accents

Totally diggin' LFW so far. NYFW was great and all being my first time there, but it's still by far not my favorite FW.

Rodarte (Hiiiii guys Tavi has so many stories about you it makes me die) and MJ are obviously pro, but London, Paris, Tokyo, Copenhagen/Berlin (ILY ANTOINE!) are the shit. We cannot deny this. They are the fecal matter of joy. I bet if they were actual fecal matter they would smell like brownies, they're so good.


1-3: Peter Pilotto - I was at Opening Ceremony when I bumped into Julia Frakes of Bunny Bisous/Paper Mag. Can't wait to teach at TVFU with her! But they had a rack of Pilotto and Rodarte... the Rodarte was on the floor, Tavi and I gasped a little. But the Pilotto! Holy shit! So beautiful in real life. I really love this collection, the shapes are something I already love to wear. And the clashing patterns are dope.

4.Antonio Berardi: I didn't expect to like this collection (gotta admit, I'm not a total fan of neutral colors. i got the jersey syndrome, sequins and patterns and tacky all around) but it was really nice. I'd actually wear a lot of it, it had nice structure and I could see someone offsetting the neutral colors with something obnoxious.

5-7. Paul Smith - TOTALLY IN LOVE with 3/4th's of the collection. It's like what I like to wear, only better and more expensive and BETTER. I aspire to dress this way. Also red is my favorite color. And the draping reminds me of the Bump collection of Rei's (shit, everything reminds me of that collection because it was the collection that got me into fashion.) but it's easier to wear.

8. Aquascutum - Didn't really like any other look but this. You know I am obsessed with that jacket. I'd wear it with ANYTHING. I am a harlot for two tone.

9. Basso and Brooke - Hi BB I want to wear everything in this collection I couldn't choose just one so I printed them all out and made a shrine of you on my wall but if fell down when I slept so I woke up to you and that is A OK WITH ME

me at fashion week

Fashion Week was fun! Met a super nice guy, he got me backstage at Y3 bc he was walking. Anyway, outfit post/randomness. Here's a shot from Everythingstlye.com I grabbed. Link from the photo - SO MANY AWESOME PICTURES.


Vintage purple blazer, vest, tshirt - Goodwill
Brooches - Reader's Gift & Goodwill
Vintage belt
Sequin Navy Harem Pants - Revasseur by Gilda.
Hooker Shoes of Epic Win and Babies Tears - I'm not telling you because then you'll buy it and I'm selfish and they're all MINEEEE HAHAHAHHA

I love these shoes. They have knuckle rings as the heel. See?

my shoes came!!!

Yeah bitches I win at shoe shopping. I love sex store shoes!

IT HAPPENED. Recap after homework.

FALL IS HERE GUISE. Or almost here... so stoked. Can't wait to go to some shows and grab some ideas for some diy's. Really looking forward to being able to wear layed black slips and orange tulle and plaid and orange necklaces and red stripes in the same outfit again WITHOUT MELTING! Fall is my favorite season and I can't wait to pull out all the stops again. Putting together an inspiration board for the first time in a long while is kind of like therapy. New season, new year, new ideas. I'm the kind of person that wears everything once, so having the motivation to finally remix items I consider staples (what, you don't think black tulle trenchcoats are a staple? you obviously don't have one) is really relaxing.

P.S Weardrobe reviews very soon! So pooped from unpacking. Dead.

Weardrobe NYC: DAY 1

So today kicked off the first day of the Weardrobe Conference! 21 bloggers came including me and it's absolutely insane: today we did photoshoots and just got to know each other with interviews and pizza and hanging out in expensive hotel rooms that smell of herbs and MONEY and GOOD LOOKING STRANGERS.

We're staying (Me, Tavi, and Brooke) in a double bed version of this room. It's really nice and I think I'm going to end up beating Tavi up in my sleep but thats ok because I am a fan of revenge and will allow her to throw hot water on me if i do so:

It's gorgeous! The whole hotel is gorgeous. Here are some pictures of whats been going on so far -- total insanity. Tavi and I will do a vlog this weekend to bring you guys up to speed and stuff.


Jessica from WhatIWore is so gorgeous and nice! Legs miles long, the photographer has obsessed with her and Brooke's glasses (slow and steady wins the race, SO JEALZ)

Sara, Amy, and Brooke being gorgeous and fashiony and whatnot


Cheap Monday swag. I thought it was originally scarves or something but of course I was pleasantly surprised. I grabbed the polka dot ones and some great grey ones.

Hello children! Belle is too exhausted and tired aka LAZY to write so she's fondling her Where the Wild Things Are figurines while I write. Clearly I am The One That Cares in our relationship.
(oh, this is Tavi btw.)

Oh, and about the jeans above, I thought they were ties laid out for my dad and Belle's dad because they have to share a room tonight. They are currently being old man-y over drinks, which would probably mean Lactaid for my father and something cool that says "I partied with Patti Smith and Freddie Mercury" for Belle's (he did. It's nuts.)
Goodies! Shoes, shoes, gift cards, shoes, jewelry, candles, more lovely things we'll all probably babble on about for weeks. Meh meh meh meh meh.

Yayyyy I love people.

It's like Christmas! Tim Gunn can be Santa Claus. This is because I watched an old season of Proj on the plane when I should've been sleeping/doing homework (the slash is necessesary as when I do homework I am usually 9/10s asleep.)

Ok, speaking of SLEEP, aka finishing Ghost World, I guess we must be off. TA TAAAAAAAAAA
Belle and Tavi and Brooke (in spirit)

in which i discuss the polarity of old women and my own huge ego

Wow, school starts soon. Balls. Despite the lurking horrors of senior year and college applications (Hiiiiii, Wesleyan, hiiiii I love youuuuuu) I promise to resume outfit posts and just make it seem like I actually give a crap about bloggings again. I know I lost like 10,000 daily views because of my laziness and I don't really care, but I just feel happier when I'm blogging actively.

Anyway, the amazing people at Rachel Roy emailed me a month or so ago (?) and said they'd like to send me a gift. Who am I to say no?! Anyway I got it in the mail a few days ago and it's gorgeous, perfect, lovely, ethereal, e



Also, in less than twelve hours I'll be jet setting to the "Big Apple!!!". Does my tourist excitement annoy you yet? Actually it's only ten minutes away from my house and I go in every week so it's not really climactic or anything in that sense but I'll be going to meet my favorite persons: Tavi and Brooke and the rest of the weardrobe conference girls!! Here's a hint of what we'll be doing:


breathe. calm. wave sounds.
