til next time

A rather fun and delightful end to my NYFW...Jeremy Scott FW 10. Makes me kind of wish I were a pop star or perhaps a lady of the night.

as if

I absolutely have no business spending a dime at the moment but if someone gave me a bunch of dimes and told me that I had to spend them on something utterly fabulous, I would go to Opening Ceremony & swathe myself in all. of. this.

NYFW always leaves me feeling a little hungry for stuff.

fall ten

Been covering NYFW this season mainly from my desk chair. This is usually the case, but I have tried to make it to a few shows & presentations I was excited for. No breaking my back snapping photos and running around crazed this time, just a bit of oohing and ahhing in excitement for what my wardrobe will look like in the fall.

collective heartbreak

I don't think anyone really knows what to say or how to react to this news.

clogs! (blame karl)

I found a pair of Rachel Comey Halla clogs on sale this weekend and I'm pretty smitten with them. They make me close to six feet tall. Another recent acquisition is this huge and amazing necklace made by the Vamoose. If you're not already familiar with her Etsy shop, definitely check it out.

We've reached the time of the season where winter clothes generally feel like boring, old news. Spring lines have it the stores, wishlists are racking up in my head, driving me crazy. (I need this jacket!) Absolutely jealous of the Southern Hemisphere at the moment.

So it's Groundhog's Day, the day when everyone lets out a collective groan at the prediction of 6 more weeks of winter. I know I said I didn't mind the cold, but some sun and fresh air is sounding mighty good at the moment. I'm nursing a nasty cold, high as a kite on Dayquil, and can't breathe. Okay spring, c'mon. Help me out.

It's the little things though. Like just finding a pair of MiH Marrakesh jeans on Yoox for 9 bucks. Nine! Amazing. There's still a pair left in 28 if anyone is interested. All of my jeans are of the super skinny variety and after my last post, I was yearning for a pair of 60's/70's inspired bellbottoms. MiH's seem perfect.

After ordering, I found their Spring 2010 lookbook. Girls with long, messy hair looking quite relaxed on soft patches of grass in the warm sun. I'm sold. Take me there.
