Fun photos

18/02/2008, inspiration, shopping

Admittedly, I am rarely inspired by modeling’s new faces enough to post, but after catching a first glimpse of the Argentinian Flo Gennaro in Teen Vogue’s Love Story editorial this month, I was fascinated enough to scrounge around on thefashionspot for more photos…the girl is amazing, with the sharp catlike eyes I’ve always been jealous of and a sort of raw energy that translates through in every shot.

What is it about Lula that makes me want to be blonde and 4 years old?

In a literally ancient issue of Teen Vogue, I tore out this picture and folded it up between the pages of one of my many inspiration journals. I later scanned it, regretting the foolish decision to mar it so. Folds and all, Carine’s beauty is mesmerizing, I wish there were more photos floating about on the internet of her in those days.

I look forward to Vogue Paris’ En Vogue feature every month. The items are always relatable yet inspiring, and the fringey boho accessories, denim shorts, and spring-appropriate boots are no exception. The spread also reminds me how badly I need an oversized brown leather bag…

I’m always weirdly gleeful when new Keira candids surface. She always looks comfortably cozy and masterfully layered while still almost managing to convince me she didn’t agonize over what colored beanie and which fabulous bag she should wear. I’m loving the medieval peasant-ish footwear too.

Lily Donaldson would have perfect taste in little black dresses.

And lastly, I just wanted to declare how much I miss Susan Eldridge. This photo sums it all up.

I love everything about this photo, hipster headband and all, it makes me want to wear bright, pop-py colored boho dresses and frolic in the sun.

Pink! For Valentine’s Day, you know. If only I were slithering about on a beach looking like a modern day Rainbow Brite.

The ol’ Topshop wishlist

14/02/2008, inspiration, shopping

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

I have a semi-bitter love/hate relationship with Topshop’s website…so many necessary items, but everything is always sold out when I’m ready to click through an order. I recognize that there are worse problems to be had, but still. I’m feeling relatively anguished over the fact that I apparently missed my chance to order the Maggie button-down skirt. How can such a simple item elude me so! And yes I tried on the Urban Outfitters version, and the extra small sat low on my hips, which it was probably supposed to, but methinks the entirety of the allure of this item is based on the fact that it be high waisted.

And the shoes! So many amazing(-ly weird) boots to be had! Just not sure if they’re worth like over $200. But talk about taking hybrid shoes to the level after the next. Quite sassy. Oh, and that’s the back of the dress (top right)…it was more interesting than the front.

Lastly, hmm it seems I am not the only awkwardly pigeon toed poser. I seriously don’t know why I do this, to the surprisingly large amount of people that have inquired. I mean I don’t walk like that or anything but I think it helps me to stabilize when standing still for a photo? Especially in heels? Maybe? At this point it’s so ingrained that it’s almost difficult not to. I tried.

The return of the preferred rich girl

11/02/2008, inspiration

Ally Hilfiger! I fell in love with her hippie-dippie-with-a-Birkin routine on MTV’s Rich Girls (why is this not available on DVD? I would totally shamelessly purchase!) and was saddened when I was no longer able to see her in all her headscarfed glory due to the show’s quick demise. Memories of watching her angst-ridden attempt to make a burrito and shopping for candy in a tiara, boa, and aviators stick out most strongly. The girl could almost rival Rachel Bilson for tiny brunette cuteness, and I’m weirdly enthralled by her chipmunky facial structure. Whatever she was doing since her reality TV sting (rehab? eh don’t care), she’s upped the style factor and I find myself lurking in her revived thread at thefashionspot semi-frequently. And can I also say how much I am entertained by the randomness of this quote from nymag?

Ally is a painter. “I do a lot of different versions of the number 8,” she said.

Awesome.
