the 17 year old supermodel is my idol. all i aspire to do is to be like her. not only is she the number one supermodel right now and has walked the most amazing runways, and been in the most beautiful shoots, but she still keeps a down-to-earth personality and doesn't let the crazy-superficiality of the business affect her. karlie, you're amazing.

words can only say so much...

i cannot believe that Alexander McQueen has passed away.

runway after runway, he provided the world with what was more than fashion: with what was vision. raw. sometimes, crazy. of course. no one would have had it any other way.

not another collection, not another beautiful piece of art to be inspired by. and amazed.
there will never be another Alexander McQueen.

his work always stood.
rest in peace.

that's all i have to say for now.

fresh beats.

the scents pictured here: gucci envy me, versace pour femme, victoria's secret dream angel's wish, Juicy Couture, and the new Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne.

just click on one of the names of the perfumes to get to a place where you can buy them
hello everyone! i'm absolutely stunned at how long it's been since i posted last; i am sincerely sorry. i need to stay on top of this stuff. i've just been really busy lately.

anyhoo, perfume. is amazing. I just ordered a new scent for myself and the package just came in: yves saint laurent parisienne. i smelled it in Vogue and thought to myself, this could be it. i love it, so much. so so so so so so SO much.
but there was an article in the february issue of vogue about perfume and finding a "signature" scent recently, and i decided to do my own take on their perfume shoot, where they had different new, personal scents arranged face down on glass and shot them from below. it looked really great, so i decided to try it myself with some of my favorite scents, and here it is.

"that perfume had always been the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accesory of fashion, which heralded your arrival and prolonged your departure." -a great quote from Coco Chanel, which i also found in the article.

i really love the beach. the beach and sunsets. does it get (much) better than that?
this is a beautiful, satin, brand new, jumpsuit (did you say jumpsuit? why yes i did) it's from urban outfitters, and even though i'm not sure where else i'll wear it, i LOVE it.
anyway, these are more lovely photographs from my elope(ing?) to a small strip of florida with my friend (and photographer) jen. she is amazing, i know.

happy new year.

looking back on some of my favorite 09 collections...just fall. and i have to say, 2009 has been a great year...there are moments in 09 that i know i will never forget. and although i'm looking forward to 2010, i am going to miss 2009.
and my number one fall 09 collection of choice would have to be: rodarte. rodarte has come a long way and i think that their 2009 fall collection was no doubt a huge success for them. also, i love that these thousand-dollar beautiful pieces inspired a collection of beautiful rodarte clothing we all can love: the rodarte for target collection.

secondly, i was a huge HUGE fan of the fall 09 moschino collection!! full of beautiful, dark florals. i wanted to burst. and some of the outerwear, was...incredible. a lot of silky/satin looking fabrics, and some beautiful velvet. the crimson red popping out in several looks. i truly loved moschino fall 09...

in third place, is chloé fall 09. a lot of people said it was okay, but not the best chloé collection. i thought otherwise. i thought it was amazingggggg... i was going through the collection, looking at each look, just dying. did i mention the awesome mixed fabrics??or the fantastic shoes i saw with each look? i wanted to wear it, all of it. it was gorgggggeous and it really spoke chloé to me...

number four, marc jacobs, well...of course. marc jacobs somehow always manages to steal the show. cool colours, cool fabrics, cool mixed media on a few peices. also, just some really great design aesthetics. the pieces weren't normal, they weren't boring. and the shoes were great too, take a look at them when you scroll through.

okay, fifth for me was D&G. i saw that dress in the middle with the bows and the silk and the tulle and i fell in love. i looked through the rest of the collection, drooling. it was amazing. the look on people's faces if you wore any one of their pieces to some high-end cocktail party, ahhh. and those JEANS i WANT THEM. the ones with embellishment, oooooh yess. and there was even some QUILTING. with a dash of military. i'm on board...

the sixth, prada. the colours they put together, genious. the girls looked like they were blindly walking around a dark wood. it was gorgeous. and i'll never forget those kinky over-thigh-high waders...

seventh, betsey johnson. it was a collection that was childish and ridiculous and for that reason i LOVED it. the kooky colours, the kooky mixes, the kooky kookiness. crazy poppy florals and pastels. except is was also sexy...i don't know how to explain it's strange euphoria. just observe it...

and finally, in 8th (yes i know "top 8" is a pretty random number of favorites. that's just what i picked, these are my 8 favorites.) is balenciaga. i love balenciaga, almost always. fall 09 was filled with drapiness and ladylike pieces. and you've got to love those shoes. and those patterns on their silky dresses... with random pops of colour...

well that's everything. i hope that 2009 was as good for you as it was for me. and don't hesitate to give me your top eight :)
