From my notebook...

Lately, since there is winter break, I have had time to do more collages and read magazines so here are two, but I have plenty more to post.

Merry Christmas!

Earlier in December I went to a play, and wore this outfit. I am wearing: a random organic v-neck shirt, a gold and silver knitted jacket, an Alexander Wang skirt, and Chloe shoes. My hair looks so long here, but since I took these photos two weeks ago, I got it cut. Now its about 5 inches shorter! It is definately easier to manage though. Sorry for the bad pictures, I took these really quickly and didn't pick the right settings for the lighting.

Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2010

I loved the cocktail looks from this collection. They are simple, but they have special details that make them very special. The silver color of the first fabric is so pretty, and it looks as though it also has a sheen to it. The cut of the dress is so cute. I also love the lace dress, and the gray dress with the skinny belt is a simple cut and color but the way the fabric looks is very interesting. The last two dresses have amazing draping, these would be good to wear over and over again since you could simply change your accesories and appear to hav a brand new dress. For example the dresses could be worn with statement necklaces, with or without tights, flats or heels, and maybe you could add a cute jacket as well. These pictures are all from style.com.

Thakoon Pre-Fall 2010

I like the long fringe that is incorporated into several of the looks, and the floral patterns are very pretty, especially the one that is very bright, but I also like the blue and white pattern as well. My favorite looks are the last one, with the khaki skirt and blue fringe top, and the look with the thin black stripes on a white top and a black fringe skirt. I would wear any of the these looks from the collection, as they look comfortable and stylish at the same time. All the pictures are from style.com.

I really liked this, its a little creepy but definately amazing. Its so intersting the way they "hold" the clothes together in a way and work with the draping in such a beautiful way. Pictures are from style.com. This is from the Hussein Chalayan S/S 2010 show.

Outfit Inspiration

Frida Gustavsson's outfit is simple but I like it so much. This inspired me to pull out my vintage Levi cutoffs and black tights, and the red lips are so great as well. Pictures are from Stockholm Street Style and Altamira. If you click on the photos you can see much larger versions.

Gray at 3.1 Phillip Lim S/S 2010

One of my favorite colors for clothes is gray, although they can sometimes be a bit dull, I simply love the color for clothing. Its perfect because its not simply black or white, although some of my most worn outfits are all black. These are some gray pieces I wish I could have from the Phillip Lim show. The first look with the shorts and the slightly cropped short-sleeve button down is simply and dressy at the same time, the necklace is also amazing. The second look with the collared slip dress and sweater is very wearable, and can be dressed up or down which is a plus. Lastly, the sequin top and bow-tie trousers are more for evening, but the top could be worn with jeans and look great for day. These pictures are from style.com.

I got this from the New York Times website, when I first read this article I knew that this was my favorite part, I love all of these pieces of jewelry. I would wear any of these, and I find the bracelet with the blue squares particulary interesting. You can view a larger version of the picture by clicking on it.

Shoe Shopping at Neimans

I love these because they are flat boots and they have the tie that is right over the knee, I think these are amazing, even though they are simple.
These also come in black but i feel like the tan would be better to wear during the S/S, and my favorite thing about these is how they are geometric and have the sheer areas between the leather.

Dolce and Gabbana
The floral pattern on these is especially bright and I love the fact that you only catch a glimpse of it on the very thin straps of the sandals.
Miu Miu
Of course I cannot stay away from the sequins, but even better its a platform hell with multicolored sequins that are in such pretty colors.
Miu Miu
Now these might just be the coolest sandals ever, I cant imagine what they would be like to wear considering there isn't really a strap to hold your foot in the back, but they certainly are pretty to look at.
I really enjoy the details in these, especially the multiple stitchings in the platform and the snake skin bows.
Singred Morrison
These remind me of armour, and these are flat boots, a type of shoes I favor.
Tory Burch
These are reminiscent of slippers but in a dressed up way, and I really like the color of the velvet, also the monogram is a nice touch.
Yves Saint Laurent
One of my favorite colors for shoes and clothes is gray, plus braided/weaved detail of the straps at the bottom gives these shoes some interest. I also feel as though these are good to go from warmer months to colder months, since you could even wear tights with these.

So I was browsing the Neiman Marcus website and couldn't help but to pick out my favorite shoes. This are the ones I would love to own, but most likely will never, but I can wish, right?

Missing the Summer...

During the summer I just spent all day at the beach, and now that school is really starting to get hard I miss the summer so much. One day when i had nothing better to I painted this watercolor, by copying a picture in a book. I haven't yet decided if I like it, I feel as though she ended up looking a little odd, but I really love the colors. The Ray Bans in this picture are actually a pair of vintage ones that I saw online and added in. if you want to view a larger version of the picture just click on it!
