17th Floor

Can't help but wondering from time to time if I'd be better off on that 17th floor
watching the dancers instead of being one
losing money instead of earning it
living the dream instead of still waiting for it.

Jil Sander/ Printemps 2010

Jil Sander

What an amazing transformation. I was thoroughly impressed by the development from last season to this one, as far as youthful, desirable pieces. Spring 2010 has remarkable silhouettes and an elegant simplicity reminiscent of a Chanel collection. Yes, Jil has mastered the minimalist technique in years past, however, I feel this season it is more accessible, i.e. the attractive womens' "pant suits" and the LBDs, yet there is still the abstract quality of Jil with the sculpture-esque details.

De La Chance

La monde est trop grande.
Elle a de la chance, pour nous.
Je suis pauvre.
Je suis toute seule.
Je suis artiste.
Je suis prete.

Warehouse Sale

One of the best parts about going to a huge university is the perks. A Frat put together this huge warehouse sale with clothes for cheap. While some of the stuff was damaged and not in good condition, there were the diamonds in the rough. My find was a French Connection coat, regualr $300, and I paid $60. Stealllll...

Turn the light out, say goodnight

No thinking for a little while,

Let's not try to figure out everything at once.

It's hard to keep track of you falling through the sky.

we're half awake in a fake empire.

Thoughts at 1:20am

1.) The contents of my fridge: Milk. Water.
2.) To remember not to tell your new boyfriend while making out: "Oh don't worry my last boyfriend couldn't get it undone either..."
3.) Two cups of coffee & peanut butter M&M's tonight equals no sugar tomorrow. DETOX BITCH.

He took me to Preen, and got all the stickers.

I want those shades of grey and khaki and cranberry.

Give me the whites and the blacks, and the chills and the thrills.

I'm ready for winter in the city.

Send me away.

Do your own thing, baby girl.

Buy only the shoes that give you butterflies.

Kiss only the boys who make you smile.

Go only the places you most desire.

Spend only your minutes wisely.

This is called living.

This is called life.

You know that it's only worth all the strife.

Heartache means you're doing it right.

Happiness means you've only lost sight.

It's a common imperfection.

PRINTEMPS 2010: MB FASHION WEEK NYC officially in full swing. I'm melting over the insane talent we've seen in just the last few days. Summary: Jason Wu caught everybody's attention with a to-die-for collection. Everybody is on edge waiting for Marc and Donna tomorrow. Seriously, I can hardly focus on school right now this is so exciting. I spose it would be even harder to focus if I actually was in NYC.

Unexpected favorites:

Benhaz Sarafpour - Wasn't very impressed with the last few seasons, but I like quite a few things from her Spring 2010.

Reem Acra - Never heard of the label, but it is my personal favorite so far. The jewlry is unbelievably gorgeous and current. Besides being the perfect level of classic and feminine for my taste, the prints are fabulous. Expect a history report on this name soon. I must be educated!

Rebecca Taylor - So easy to emulate. Current looks. Very young, XXIish. Some of the looks reminicent of a past marc season. Nevertheless, I dig.

Karen Walker - Feels like Reem. Again, jewelry is amzing. HATS; check them out.
