Rumi of fashiontoast. Walmart jeans, actually.
Sea of Shoes does harem pants:
Agh. She has amazing style.
CAUTION: do not use this much tanning stuff.
Who knows. Maybe that’s her natural skin, maybe it’s just the camera… but welcome to Oompa-Loompa Land.

Thank you, Stylish Wanderer!
Somarta // Fall 2009 (Japan Fashion Week)
Too bad JFW is so low-key and under-reported. As The Business of Fashion points out, that’s weird, because Tokyo is the most designer-obsessed place in the world. Ah: “The government now subsidises many of the shows with the idea of bolstering Japan’s textile exports. This government intervention, unfortunately, has had mixed results. Sure, the government subsidies allow many young brands to realize their vision. But in general, the week suffers from a lack of name brands. Comme des Garçons, Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanabe, and Under Cover all show in Paris, the de facto capital for global fashion.”

Cool jacket/dress (on the left):
A while ago – on the fall runway posts – I mentioned one model that I thought looked like Alice Cooper. So.
I am forced to eat my words, for this is definitely not Alice Cooper.
That’s Jamie Bochert in W and i-D and looking very un-Cooperesque. I still think that in the first photo, she looks a bit like that…
^ that one. (Marc Jacobs // Fall 2009)
Hmm, maybe a bit of celeb trash gossip. (Hey, everybody needs some!)
Bored? Peruse through 38 photos of the most luxurious (and in most cases, ridiculously extravagant) celeb houses on the market. Here. Hmm, maybe I should be a millionaire…
Rihanna‘s got new ink: a gun on her ribcage. But is it CoverGirl material? (Not so much…)
Kanye West is no more – nope, he’s changed his name to Martin Louis the King Jr, to fully embody MLK Jr and Louis Vuitton.
In Complex magazine.
He did say, though, “How the hell is a 29-year-old grown ass man acting like a little b—?” he asks. “How spoiled can I get?”
Kira Plastinina: do those words make you shudder? Cringe? Groan? Roll your eyes? Yeah, us too. But never fear, good news is here! All of her US shops will be closed by the end of this year.
Sorry, some bad news too: she’ll be coming across the pond for Parsons in 1 1/2 years. Agh. Although I must admit it’ll be good fodder for trashy gossip tabloids…
One of her many (although there are only 2 remaining now) US stores, perpetually empty.

Some sweet little doodles by Laura Laine around iconic fashion… icons, I guess. ICIs.
Cool, huh? See the rest here.
Lastly, a cool lookbook: Elizabeth & James.
Sorry my last few posts have been pretty uninspired – mostly just random cool stuff I find whilst perusing my hundreds of fashion feeds – I’ve been busy with school (sort of…), designing/trying my hand at sewing (!!), writing and editing my friend’s story, trying to rediscover the clean room hidden under the current disaster that is mine, and oh… going through roundabout after roundabout so as to not flunk my road test tomorrow – 8:30 am. The good news: it won’t be traffic-y at all. The bad news? I may not be fully awake. Oh well. Wish me luck!
