dream catcher

{mania mania, wildfox, pamela love, fashion toast}

I guess my lack of sleep has sparked my recent dreamy inspirations…ouija boards, witchcraft, prisms, feather-like objects, cool-looking rocks, frizzy haired girls holding sparklers, astrology (oh wait, that’s a permanent obsession) etc. etc. It has also sparked my desire to take a ton of hallucinogens and dance naked at a music festival. I’ll let that one sink in with ya…anywhooo, found this amazing video back in December and thought this was the perfect post to put it with…



Props to Aldo

Aldo Spring/Summer 2010 Campaign

{Jessica Stam and Boyd Holbrook
shot by Terry Richardson}

Props to Aldo for hiring photographer Terry Richardson!…one of my favorite photographers. His pictures are usually super raunchy and raw…which I love. For Aldo, he kept it innocent and playful…which I also love (but maybe a little less).

Speaking of PROPS!! That’s my favorite thing about this campaign. It reminds me of when I was in elementary school and I REALLYYYY wanted a lip phone. I put it on every Christmas/birthday list for about 5 years but gave up once cell phones rolled around. I still want one…..also loving the skull and the cheetah.

Here’s the campaign video….

So impressed with Aldo for doing something cool.

it’s a family affair

Growing up…my brother, sister and I were COMPLETELY different. My brother played rugby, my sister read books about dragons and I put on a pair of tap shoes and a tutu. Fastforward 2010…My brother: fashion design major…my sister: obbsessed with Alexander McQueen…and I, well, you already know. Crazy how things work out, right!? Here’s where it gets even better…we are now a family of BLOGGERS! My brother started his this past weekend….Style Deviant…check it out!! Combine fashion/music/random with his clever wit and VIOLA…a great blog is born! …..we just need to get my sister in on it…trust me, it’s in the makings. I’ll keep you updated!!

Speaking of fashionable families….The Ronson’s know what’s up. I can’t help but compare my family to them…2 sisters and a brother, HELLO! And they’re all style savy!! If only my family can make it to their level!!! I don’t need to give you a bio on this fabulous-o trio (who DOESN’T know who they are)…but I will give you some pics to quench your fashion-thirst!

Samantha

Mark…yum yum

I couldn’t have a post without some designer actionnnn. Speaking of Miss Ronson…here’s some of my favorites from her Spring ’10 collection.

And here’s a little music!! Mark Ronson- Diverson


fashion in wonderland

It looks as if designers took a little trip when creating their collections for Spring 2010. Either that or they were anticipating the upcoming release of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Whatever sparked the inspiration (drugs-movies-astronomy: you decide!), it is evident that intergalactic/psychedelic prints are a MUST for the spring.

{Versace}

{Proenza Schouler}

{Goot}

{Basso&Brooke}

{Balenciaga}

Here’s a little music to get you in a trippy/space-y mood!

when I grow up, I want to be Françoise Hardy

Françoise Hardy

French singer, actress, style icon and astrologer

Style Moments

{HELLO metallic jumpsuit}

{Bold maxi, waist belt, bauble necklace… perfection}

{high waisted shorts and ruffle neckline= french chic}

{fur coat. nuff said.}

{she would be able to pull this off…jealous. jealous. jealous.}

{black alligator jacket, can I have you?}

Can one person have everything? Looks, talent and style? Not to mention she’s French, which makes her even more perfect….and an astrologer!!! (astrology=sick addiction of mine). So, to put it simply, I want to be her when I grow up.

Check ittttt…..

After watching that video… you want to hide under a rock…don’t you?

good morning, charlie

Charlie Le Mindu‘s collection makes me über-duper excited. After seeing some of my favorite performers wear his pieces, I had to do a little research myself

{click for peaches and gaga wearing Charlie Le Mindu}

Let me give you a little update on my life. Last night,  I had a scathingly brilliant idea. I decided to wait outside of the GaGa concert (ticket-less) and mingle with scalpers in hopes to make my way into the monster-ball. Unfortunately, the premise was scalper-free….but did that stop me? Yeah right.  Since there were no scalpers to bargain with, I moved on to the next best thing: doormen. With a little flirting and a wad of cash, I WAS IN!!!!! Yes, I bribed my way into the Lady GaGa concert- and I’m proud of it!! AMAZINNGG CONCERT- hence, this post.

I can talk for decades about how inspirational GaGa is, but I will spare you the rambling and focus on one topic. WIGS! Thanks to Miss GaGa, the monster-wig queen, I stumbled across the brilliant Charlie Le Mindu. I saw his Spring 2010 collection awhile back and became OBBBBSSESSSED. I’m a hair-mogul myself (yes, I used to cut everyone’s bangs in the girl’s bathroom back in the 8th grade)..so seeing someone with unique hair expertise is so refreshing, especially since it is applied to high fashion. I’ve always wanted to blog about him but never felt that spark of inspiration that is required for my posts.

Thank you, Queen GaGa, for entrancing me with your performance and making this post possible. Love, your little Monster.
