RVCA love

25/07/2008, General


T, H&M. Dress, American Apparel. Shorts and pants, RVCA. Wedges, Chloe. Cuff and glasses, vintage. Tights, Target.

A reader commented that she always has millions of questions as to how my photos come about. Well today, it pretty much went like this:

R: Let’s go take pictures with my new shoes!

C: Okay. If we go to Trader Joe’s afterwards.

Mmm yes. So we drove up to a dirt road we drove by this past weekend on the way to get Mexican food that had seemed somewhat promising. After a couple test shots we decided it wasn’t working out, so on the way home we saw this old decrepit restaurant and stopped there instead. Perhaps I shouldn’t unveil the mundanity behind Fashiontoast but well there it is.

A while ago I received an email from the extremely kind Josh from RVCA, saying that he had been following my site..we’ve kept in contact and some crazy exciting stuff is on the way. He and design director Kristin were also sweet enough to send over a very generous amount of clothing, which I received today. I have no idea how it happened since I have a pretty hard time finding pants for myself, but the black skinnies fit me ridiculously perfectly, and I am obsessed with these weird little black lamé running shorts. We all know that Erin Wasson is debuting her line for RVCA soon…I honestly can’t wait. The blending of her personal style and one of the best surf/skate companies around is going to be golden. Until then, I imagine this editorial is the closest we can get to hold us over.

Edited to add: check out Erin’s blog on the RVCA site here.

One of the best parts about blogging is you never know what kinds of inexplicably awesome emails to expect. I can’t even express how delighted I was to open an email from Danny Roberts, the insanely talented illustrator that runs Igor and Andre. His work is a seamless fantasy-like blend of ethereal, powerful, and moody, with subjects ranging from fashion models to fairy tales to infinitely expressive portraits of friends. It’s apparent that Egon Schiele is one of his most admired artists in the slightly sinewy, distorted quality of his work, but without the grotesque tendencies that Schiele was known for. Okay enough rambling.

My favorites: Chanel half-tints, character sketches, fashion illustrations, blue eyed siren

Blazer, H&M. Jeans, vintage. Heels, Nine West.

These are likely the craziest jeans I have ever seen, let alone actually worn. There’s so much going on with them – the skinniest cropped leg, ridiculously high waist, and lattice cutouts at the sides, all executed in a delicously ugly/awesome acid wash. All they’re missing is…nothing. I was doubtful as to whether I could integrate them into my style, but I tried and I think I am in love. Anyway, what is fashion without wanton experimentation? I’ve been trying to wear my older shoes and bags lately to, you know, spread the love – I forgot how ideal these Jessica Simpson ankle boots are. I couldn’t care less about her recent delving into country music, but I must say I’m grateful for the production of these shoes.

Sorry it’s been quiet here the past couple of days, my boyfriend and I have been busy having one of the best weekends of recent history – don’t worry, we went a little photo crazy and I have a little over a zillion photos to sift through, resize, and post. The last two here are a preview from today’s session, can’t wait to put up the rest.
