"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."

Reruns become our history

Well. It's snowing. Again. Grrr, says I. Grr.

Anyway. I'm so insanely excited about Fall 2011! I'm going through some of the collections on Style.com, and I'm veeeery impressed. Hopefully I'll have a review or two posted by the end of the week.

I was a little angry, cuz I had to wake up early this morning to take entry testing for honors classes next year... Ewie. On the bright side, however, I'm going to Florida next week and shopppppping today. Oh, yeah. It's sort of depressing, I haven't been shopping in weeks!

Also. And interesting tidbit. We have to do this dance for graduation, and this is the video we are being taught with.

Afraid? You should be.

Just a little preview for the upcoming posts; I plan to be doing reviews on Diane von Furstenberg, Y-3, Malandrino, Alexander Wu, Tommy Hilfiger, Bogetta Veneta, and a few more, including Alexander McQueen when the show gets on Style.com.

All for now.

No name face

As you may or may not have noticed, this page has gone under a name/URL change. I figured it was time for a change of name, change of pace. Plus, I really enjoyed the picture that is now the title of this page.

Shopping today! I'm one of those people who gets so excited about their recent purchase, that they just swap what they are already wearing to what they just bought. Sometimes it just looks like a few different outfits attacked you, but today it actually worked.

Purchases of the day: Calvin Klein black fedora, and black jacket with ribbing details.

I was wearing a pair of black Urban Vibe super skinny jeans, black Betsey Johnson tights, grey Franco Sarto t-straps, my favorite floral Free People baby doll top, my usual outerclothes (grey abercombie down jacket, black and white knit Dolce and Gabbana scarf, plus my Coach purse), and my jewelry (silver and diamond ring from Kessler's Diamons, silver charm bracelet, silver Love 21 layered chain necklace). Just threw on the hat, and swapped out my bulky winter coat with the warm (but less bulky) jacket, and I was ready to go. It actually didn't look too horrible. Except, after three hours of walking around the outlet mall, I was hobbling in that my-shoes-are-killing me antifashion.

I also got my February 2011 issue of Vogue, and was happy to see some previews of Fall 2011 collections in the 'Gangs of New York' article. I have to see, I'm eager see what Ralph Lauren, Rodarte, and Proenza Schouler will be sending down the run way after seeing the 14 page spread featuring seven different designers, including Marc Jacobs and DKNY. Ralph Lauren's was definitely my favorite, with the lovely Victorian ruffles, lace, and crocheted dresses. Very romantic. I wanted to pick my good ol' copy of Pride and Prejudice.

Brava to Mario Testino, the photographer of these pictures, and stylist Grace Coddington! And, course, the designers. Can't wait to see what other great pieces are in their collections.

Tell me your secrets

My entire life I’ve been afraid of loss
Not actually losing something
But that feeling in your chest you get when something is wrong
When something is
Do you know it?
I don’t know when I first had that feeling
But as long as I can remember I’ve feared it
Through the years I’ve found the best way to avoid the feeling
Is to keep moving
To leave it behind before
I became flyaway girl
I flew fast enough that the feeling couldn’t catch me
But then I met you
You were something I’d never encountered
Ever before in my flights
And I found that we had some things in common
Every waking hour you were on my mind
I shed my wings
I didn’t want to run away
From you
But eventually, I had to grow those wings back
Not to run from you, but the
That followed your name like a shadow
At some point I stopped shedding my wings

And you became almost as dangerous as your name
I never meant to hurt you, see
But I’m flyaway girl
That’s what I do.

Picture 1, 2, 3, 4.
