Spotlight: Alexander Wang Pre-Fall 2011

I love the casual cool and general badassery of Alexander Wang. It's one of my favourite brands and I would kill to own a piece. 

Inspiration: Mila Kunis

I was going to save my dress commentary for the Oscars, but this is too good to leave unnoticed. I LOVE this Alexander McQueen dress on Mila Kunis. (from the SAG Awards last night)

Spotlight: Chanel Haute Couture

I'm posting this a bit late, but here are my thoughts on Chanel Haute Couture Spring 2011. 

I love the classic Coco Chanel feel of the collection, with a modern twist. I'm not a huge fan of the silhouettes, especially the ones in the first half of the show, but I love the mixing of eras and materials that is happening here. I also like the skirt over the pants look that kept recurring way more that I expected to... it made me think of high school when I was too much of a tomboy to wear just a skirt so I would wear my jeans underneath as well. The collection is as beautiful and feminine as ever.

Spotlight: Andrej Pejic

Earlier today, everyone's favourite androgynous model, Andrej Pejic, walked the Jean-Paul Gaultier runway in Paris. He's strikingly beautiful regardless of sex, but what do you think about him modelling women's clothing?

Spotlight: Christian Dior Couture

I had another post planned for today, but I saw the photos of Christian Dior's Haute Couture show in Paris today and knew that I had to share them. The vintage feel with a few Disney princess-esque pieces is taking my breath away.

Inspiration: random

Hey guys! Today's been crazy; I paid tuition, almost finished the album cover, got called into work, and made mac n' cheese from scratch. I'm about to go out for the night so here are some inspirational fashion images for y'all.

have a great Friday night, everyone! 

Inspiration: Mary-Kate Olsen

Mary-Kate is by far my favourite Olsen twin. Her style is so unique and influential and creative. She always manages to look so amazing while still being grungy and totally badass. I feel like I've grown up with her (I've been a fan of the Olsen twins since The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley books and movies) and she is definitely a role model of mine. 

Don't get me wrong, I love Ashley too! I just feel like Ashley's a little too proper for me... she always looks very professional and polished and it's not really my style. 

Anyways, here's Mary-Kate!

What I wore: Jan 19

Yo bros. Sorry I'm the worst blogger ever, I've been doing homework all night and just realized I forgot to make a post today. Today I wore this American Apparel lace tshirt over a plain tank top. I hadn't really considered wearing this shirt with colour underneath but I love how it looks.

I promise I'll do some quality posts this weekend, love yaaaaa.

Inspiration: To Sew

A bunch of images that I saved to my computer a while ago with the intent of eventually trying to replicate them. I still haven't gotten around to it, but maybe one day. 

Sorry, but no credit, I don't remember where I found these photos.
