Back to basics

Ahh everyone’s favorite top…simple but brilliant. And perfect for constructing a look when it’s @#$*&)@#* too hot to think. I love that it can dress down mostly anything (in this case monumental mirrored heels), and it’s a favorite with my first love, denim shorts. This is definitely an outfit that’s so simple it can be tinkered with in numerous ways and still be quite fun…Chucks, oversized vintage clutch, woven wedges, tights, studded anything, annoying hat, duh white tshirt, etc. I love basics.

And, my friends, it is a fateful day for me, I have scored a place on the homepage of The Fashion Spot. I’m more than a little stunned to see myself in the cover story flash animation alongside such internet giants as Susie Bubble. I’ve been lurking and posting there since..2004 or some crazy year, and sort of feel life would not be worth living without it. My frequent forum action has even caused fights with my boyfriend. Kind of sick. Not sure if I mean that in the good way or the bad way. So anyway, THANK YOU TFS!

Top and skirt, American Apparel. Bag, Lucky. Heels, Nine West. Necklace/headband, Banana Republic.

I do my fair share of internet roving and thought that I had peered at about every Paris fashion street style documentation that there was to be had, so when I stumbled across Dandyhorse I was rather delighted at being able to ogle more angles and immaculately disheveled looks. Though it’s kind of making me sick to look at all these photos of tights and jeans when it’s 90 degrees out, these are too good to not share. Now if only the site was updated more often…

Julia von Boehm is an eternal favorite..what a fabulous way to wear all black. Love how comfortable she looks in this gear.

This is sort of a fun interpretation of the motorcycle jacket/skinny jean/fierce heel combination which is pretty much the 07/08 uniform.

Gray is one of the few (only?) colors that I feel right mixing tones in. Those pants could have been so bad but they’re..not.

I think those were the ones I wanted. Hmph.

This is so Diane Kruger’s doing. At my high school there was this guy that everyone called Pacey because they thought he looked like this character. It was pretty annoying.

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld is one of those people where I just want ALL THEIR SHOES. I bet she’s a 7.5 too….

The doctor’s in

15/05/2008, General

So. The Doc Martens, yes? It seems there was much wonderment as to what I was going to wear them with, and I was admittedly perplexed upon receiving them. They’re so..ugly. I mean in a cool way but still they’re almost scarier than Uggs, and I will venture to say less flattering than the furry beasts too. But no matter! I was determined to figure out a way to wear them. Noting how unexplored this territory was, I went fleeing back to my favorites: floral, fringe, and light denim. I’ll leave wild experimentation to another day.

Experiment #1 involved that infamous Kate for Topshop dress since my favorite vintage black floral was drying in the sun, and a secondhand jacket turned vest..thing. Sort of ’90s grunge princess minus the tiara and glitter eyeshadow. I figured the colorful pansies would prettify.

Experiment #2 was embarked upon after feeling the first look was too era-specific. I decided that if anything could make a little black fringe dress work for day, it would be the boots in question. I inappropriately threw in a vintage rosary and the same vest. I feel like this is more me, though I definitely don’t feel like I’ve got my mind wrapped around the DMs yet.
