For as long as I have known about Etro I have adored their use of fun prints and expressive colors. Every season I’m mesmerized by the spectrum of swatches they have to use in order to create their pieces. Sometimes they may go overkill with all the damn paisley, but when they don’t, their shirts and pants are flawless. For this particular post I chose to focus in on the belt the model above is wearing. It may not look like much but I really, really like it. And I’m not that crazy about accessories. I don’t usually focus my attention on the “extras”, but I do understand their importance. Read the rest of this entry »

OH DEAR!

Goshers! I’m so happy! Project Runway is back and I’m crazy happy. I may have to force myself to watch every single episode, but I don’t I’ll have to much to stress about. Well, other than the fact that I’ll be starting school in a week. That may get in the way of my PR watching habits. Especially because I’ll be at American Uni. and my regular high school. Oh yeah…two schools.

The fear grows more and more every day I get closer to the first day of class. But I can’t wait! I’m so going to hang with all the college kids. Can you say poser much?


Gucci S/S ’10

To love Wintour or to not.

I had just been on a trip to Minnesota where I can only kindly describe most of the people that I saw as little houses-Ana Wintour

My god the nerve of the lady. I can’t believe she said that…wait, yes I can! But it’s okay. I still respect her. And I still love Vogue. If you haven’t watched her 60 Minutes interview yet then, please, watch it! It’s a nice chance to see some human in the lady we all think is a robot. A robot in Chanel! (Ooohh, I’m making that a song!)

Here’s the clip where she compares poor ol’ Minnesotans to houses:


Damir Doma A/W ’09

I’ve never seen a runway show so interesting, and trust me, I’ve seen a few! I mean, it’s not much, but that’s exactly it. The music is very chill and subdued. The same can be said for the clothes. The runway is dark and the music is darker. Enjoy.

A few things.

I haven’t been blogging as much as I usually do. I blame school…fer sure. To fill the void that’s been left by school work and laziness, I’ve compiled a list of all the things I wanted to post over the past week or two.

  • My first solo show has gone live: After about a months worth of waiting, my first solo show has gone up. I’m so happy right now. But I have one final thing to do before my show is complete-create an artist statement. Here’s where the show is on display: http://tinyurl.com/cxw8mj. Make sure you go into street view and turn the image 180°.
  • Next stop…Stonewall Dems: So at my school we have a thing called Fellowship. All fellowship is is a time when all juniors get sent to non-profit organizations here in DC. It’s way cooler than I make it sound! Starting tomorrow, I’ll be interning at Stonewall Democrats. I can’t wait.
OMG
