Product review

Stella good that even paying full price for vegetarian shoes seems A-ok.

American Apparel Tri-blend romper in any color they make. Next best thing to being naked. Actually, way more comfortable than even being naked.

House of Holland tights. Don't ask me. Somehow it just works.

Express bralettes. ALWAYS been a fan of their intimates line.

now that luck is found our feet won't touch the ground

row 1: Chrissie Morris , Charlotte Olympian , Dolce & Gabbana
row 2: Charlotte Olympian, Acne

Ever since I purchased the Alice +Olivia for Payless wedge bootie, I've developed a new appreciation and and undying love for the heel that unintentionally becomes much more of a statement maker due to its art deco appeal. Let me just say the Chrissie Morris stingray inset wedge...extravagance at its best.

Hands down, Givenchy S10 has been my favorite collection thus far.

Every. Single. Piece. I need in my closet.

The only thing better than the clothes is what I have deemed their 'ace bandage' wedge. You know...the one you wrapped around your sprained foot. Except Ace never looked so good.

Spring 2010

What I love most about Rodarte is that when other designers are erring on the side of practicality due to the economic downturn, they obviously are anything BUT practical.

I think their Spring collection is so imaginatively brilliant (as are their other collection concepts) but I could definitely see a fashion-don't if put in the wrong hands. Which is why I preferred their more 'structured' pieces (especially the one with leather cage accents) as opposed to the other pieces in the collection that were too 'cat tore up your dress' looking.

And let's face it, anything with tribal tattoos is just cool in my book.

In my personal style, I don't do cute and I definitely don't do pink. So it definitely takes something special to make me give it a second thought. So playful and so vibrant. The rest of the collection is a little bit mod and the polka dots almost make it feel a little bit pin-up-y. I'm in LOVE with the short, playful silhouettes.

When I think of Donna Karen, I can't help but think of middle aged women in professional (but stylish) business suits. But her Spring collection has me catching my breathe. Obviously my favorite have GOT to be the wispy floor-length gowns that totally float on clouds. Damn, that woman can DRAPE! I'm also loving the idea of a nude chiffon accent.

we were never meant for do or die

i consider myself a pretty quiet person. which probably explains some of my more outlandish outfits as merely a form of my own outspokenness. but more and more i'm coming to realize the underrated appeal of a really badass 'statement' leather jacket. as you can see, my obsession with fringe doesn't just stop with hair...and i happened to score a leather fringe jacket for $35 yesterday, marked down $40 from its original price.

i swear i'm just one lucky SOB when it comes to thrifting.

watched the september issue last night. i won't ruin it for those who have yet to see it but in retrospect i came to several realizations after watching the documentary. the main one being that fashion is probably one of the biggest oxymorons there is. it is everything and yet it is nothing.

dior does indie

i'm lovin the 2009 dior campaign with giselle rocking the haphazard WTF bang. this is one of those rare times when i can really identify with the fashion industry. glad to see they are making the dull knife bang trim fashionable. and i thought i was just saving money.

the first day is always the worst. the right side always ends up longer. always.

the day before tomorrow

(Urban Outfitters crop top, Tripp neon yellow skinnies, Crown Vintage caged boots)

the reactions i get from these neon yellow pants are about half and half, ranging from genuine compliments to rude laughter (as if i couldn't hear them right behind me). unfortunately the true highlighter potential didn't come out in the photos, but i assure you they are much more electric and obnoxious in person.

all i gotta say is anything remotely resembling the YSL caged bootie should automatically qualify as a statement shoe. i purchased these beauties at the same place i got the studded Gucci- look-a-likes. DSW, people. and i found them both marked down 40-50%. oh-so recession friendly.

p.s. thanks for the wonderful comments on the shots from my last blog entry. i'm sure w.ill will more than appreciate it and just might make the running around in 90 degree heat worthwhile afterall.

do you collect the souls you've lost in the top of your dresser drawer

(Thrifted denim vest/suede wedges/metal mesh purse, BCBG tank, Target floral skirt, Givenchy thigh highs via Ross)

for some reason i've just been busy. and thus behind on my posting.

looking back at these photos has already become nostalgic for me. i finally drug myself to the hairdresser for a long overdue haircut. ended up cutting off 10 inches for the sake of Locks of Love. but apparently my hairdresser tells me i have to mail it in myself. i should really try to take care of that soon. until then, i have my hair sitting in a plastic bag just chillin in my car. kind of weird.

alice + olivia x payless sweater wedge boot

Sunday, August 23, 2009

motorcycle chic

(Ebay backpack vest, Alice + Olivia x payless boots, Alexander McQueen gloved clutch, Herve Leger cutout dress, Deena & Ozzy glove, Urban Outfitters fringe earrings, Alkemie shell cuff, Alexander Wang boot, YSL ring)

Holy Cow, learning photoshop was a real bad idea.

For the longest time I had ONE half glove in my purse. Dont ask me why or where I misplaced the other pair. But having a glove permanently attached to ur clutch is pure genius.

emmanuel limon

Emmanuel Limon from from Stylelikeu on Vimeo. is making its way around the blogging circuit. it's kind of interesting to see which video people pick as an extension of their own taste.

i gave the girls a fair try, i really did. but steel plated boots, DC pants, hardware necklaces, ugly glasses, and mother f-ing cowboy spurs... definitely style like me.

slummin it at the 6

"We are such stuff as dreams are made on " Shakespeare

(DIY cutoff thrifted shirt, BDG jeans, Ebay motorcycle boots, Ed Hardy tiger belt)

I got totally stoked over this periwinkle door. I haven't been this excited over a color since back when I discovered lavender roses and more recently my Tripp neon yellow skinnies.

The belt was one of those WTF purchases that you just look back on and wonder what the hell you were thinking. For some reason, it just called to me. Hey, at least it doesn't have rhinestones on it.

the new beater

i've always had an obsession with the union jack symbol. Combine that with some def leppard and some strategic cutouts and you've got the new rock n' roll beater.

everything here is vintage or thrifted except my chloe padlock bracelet.

i'm totally in love with the stackable watch look. found these 2 particular watches at value village. let's just say for $2 each, any expectation of functionality kind of goes out the window.

my newly acquired silver basket weave ring from a small market place in austin featured here with a whole wheat garlic spinach calzone. both taste bud tantalizing.

minty fresh

(Thrifted salvation army blouse and belt, Tripp leopard pants, Calvin klein pumps)

It just seemed mathematically correct to add this prim and proper mint green blouse with some punk ass leopard pants.

on the 23rd floor

We took a trip to the 23rd floor of the Hilton downtown. A-mazing.

(DIY studded Value Village bustier, BCBG tank, dad's vintage pants, Zigi Soho platforms)

I initially zoned in on these platforms because they were too cool for school, pushing the heights (literally) into stripper-dom. It was only after the fact that I realized they're total knockoffs from the Balenciaga '09 resort collection. I'm sure W.ill got more than a couple of chuckles watching me stumble around on probably my highest pair of heels yet.

marley and me

(Macys striped cardigan, thrifted goodwill marley tee, target lace leggings,
steve madden studded booties)

so i was randomly browsing alexander mcqueen on ebay and there was a random listing for the mcqueen x target studded shorts that was using one of my photos from my blog. um, i guess i'll let it slide. i feel so used.

one of my classmates deemed my signature hairstyle 'pebbles' as you can see in the last pic (from the flinstones of course!). i never thought of the resemblance, so cute!
