Quick shout-out to RunwayDaily for featuring one of my outfits a while back – vintage lace jacket, JCP skinnies, and GoJane lace-up suede oxfords (which, concidentally and regretfully, have become so worn down on both the heel tip and the actual shoe bottom that the right shoe is slanted outwards about fifteen degrees, thus making walking extremely painful… such a shame, as they were relatively comfy to begin with. Ah, such are the woes of shoe-lovers everywhere…)

How to wear lace up oxfords

The second photo reminded me immediately of Phillipe Halsman’s portrait (one of many) of Marilyn Monroe…

Sort of.

Ever had an interview for a job you didn’t really want? I have. Today.
I had one at this local ice cream place (because I haven’t bothered to apply anywhere else… yet… what can I say? I’m not keen on the idea of working during the summer. Babysitting? Pet-or-plant -sitting? No problema (the Spanish-grammatically-correct way). Tutoring little kids? Sure. Freelancing or copy-editing? Bring it on! But making over 100 kinds of ice cream concoctions and enduring cheerleader and poms people (the only kind they hire)? Umm, no thanks. So on the off-chance that I do get the call tomorrow, I honestly don’t know if I’ll take it.
Hmmph. Anyway. Haven’t done abs in… what, 2 days now? Comment triste, non? I feel the flab coming on… ecchhh.

Siiigh. Weird day, mes amies. With the school yeah winding down, I’m seriously catching the summer bug. I don’t hate school (I just think high school is a bit pointless and mindless), but lately I’ve definitely been caring less and less. Hmm. Summer, arrivez tres vite, s’il vous-plait!

I’m not a big TV junkie…. like, at all… but one show I’ve been watching is USA’s Burn Notice (Jeffery Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar). Basically, it revolves around a fired (“burned”) spy [Donovan] attempting to get back into the game. Meanwhile, he saves miscellaneous people. Gabrielle Anwar is his ass-kicking, model-gorgeous ex (and sidekick). She’s my role model, haha.

You know the economy’s looking great when a top exec of a Freddie Mac is found dead from hanging himself… and this just one month after the Chief Exec resigned. What depression? [NYT]
At least the markets were up today. Anyway….

Happy Wednesday/Earth Day! Woo hoo! Do something green today… and preferably keep it up. And no, I don’t mean just buying an organic tote (although there are some cute ones out there, that’s one investment I have yet to make…)

Ah, there’s nothing quite like a dirty, teeming mass of humanity gathering for 3 days of peace, love, and music. If I had a time machine, I would so go there. Really. Sometimes I think I would’ve been a better 60s, 70s, and 80s kid than a… 2000s kid. Haha.

VOGUE  Paris


World’s Most Expensive Suit retails at… $103,000.

The world’s most expensive suit will be unveiled at a party in London tonight. Designed by Alexander Amosu, the suit costs $103,000. So it’s perfectly sensible for Amosu to arrange for extra security to accompany the suit to the party, where it will be transported in an armored Range Rover. Amosu is also launching his new luxury line for men and women, with prices starting at $7,300 and topping out at $103,000 for the suit. The illustrious ensemble is a blend of vicuña, a rare wild South American animal related to the camel which only produces enough wool for shearing every three years; qiviuk, the world’s most expensive wool, which comes from the arctic muskox; and pashmina. They call this blend “Vanquish II.” Since no six-figure item of apparel is complete without shiny embellishments, the suit is finished with nine eighteen-carat gold and pavé-set diamond buttons. The designer is, obviously, untroubled by the economic climate. “We might not be catering to everyone,” Amosu concedes. “But the people who buy Alexander Amosu want to wear the very best suits in the world.” We can think of only one person foolish enough to purchase such an item: Real Housewife of New York Jill Zarin, who spent $16,000 on a bag that looked to be made of red cardboard and thought it was an understated way to celebrate her birthday.” (NYmag)

Lady Gaga On Trend Today, No Less Ridiculous

I’m slowly becoming enraptured by LG’s outfits. That hat is killer.

So you can't run your fingers through it.  It's still hot.

Dearest Johnny Depp is using hair gel. Mmmmm.

Brit model Claire Merry. Star Trek, anyone?

OK, I’m off to read more of 1984. A great book, I recommend it.

Since my hip is still messed up, I decided to walk on the treadmill and watch TV.
I lasted about one mile.
Walking is so boring! It’s slow and inefficient and it’s just not as physically satisfying as running. Why, oh why?

Style isn’t what but how you wear clothes. Fashion is the way you walk, talk, dance and prance.” – first issue of i-D (here)

While we’re both geeks, Adam is Twittering everyday, and it’ll be a cold day in hell when you see me Twittering anything.” – Jamie, discussing their [Adam & Jamie’s] geekiest qualities (here)

“Choosing a nail polish for your wedding day is about the biggest nail decision you’ll ever have to make” – FabSugarUK. Really? Is it that life-altering? I probably won’t even bother – it just chips off in a few days anyway. Naked nails, that’s me.

And now for something completely different… actual news, that is.

“TEHRAN — An Iranian judiciary official said Tuesday that the trial of an American journalist accused of spying for the United States had begun on Monday in secret, and that a verdict was expected within two weeks.
The journalist, Roxana Saberi, a 31-year-old with dual American-Iranian citizenship, was arrested in January and was initially accused of working without press credentials. But last week an Iranian judge brought the far more serious charge of spying for Washington.
“She is charged with spying for foreigners,” the judiciary official, Alireza Jamshidi, told ISNA, a news agency. “The first session of the trial was held yesterday, and she defended herself for the last time.” “ – NYT.

Agh, more conflict. And while a tiny, minuscule nugget of my brain says, “Maybe she is a spy”, the rest of my logical self – most of it, that is – takes over and says there’s no way the US would do something so stupid. Unless that’s just my US perspective. Or maybe a remnant of some Bush thing gone awry, or simply forgotten? But I doubt it. Either way, I sincerely hope things can get worked out, and quickly. That’s one place I would not love to be a journalist. Those people are brave.

And unnngh, don’t get me started on the drugs-and-guns situation with Mexico. Every day now, it seems to me, I hear another report of a cartel-related attack or more smuggled guns being caught. (I suppose the guns-getting-caught bit is good news. Relatively.) I think for a while now – and this may/probably is a generalization – people have been paying so much attention to situations like Iraq and Georgia and Israel that we forget to peek over the fence to check on the neighbors (or as the case may be, pull back the lace curtains, peer through our binoculars, and sip tea with our old lady friends. Haha.) The Mexico situation has gone unchecked (again, very relatively and generally) for some time now, and I strongly feel that it requires more of our immediate attention; not only from the government, but from the people and the media as well. The more we get involved and actively interesting in solving our nation’s problems, the more pressure it’ll apply to the government to take action.

I’ve just realised just how much I used the word “relatively” in the last paragraph. Well, 2. But the tone – and that of many other such opinion articles I’ve read – also seem to express a great need to put our views in perspective, take them from a wider angle. I don’t want to be construed as single- or narrow-minded, or accused as seeing things only from a stereotypical American view (we’re right, they’re wrong, etc.) And I suppose in the bigger picture, the Middle East threat is much more immediate. (And lets not forget North Korea!)

That’s something people today could use more of, I think: a general sense of perspective, taken with a dose of humility and a cup of reality. (Haha, I lost my train of thought there and forget my last word. It was a good word, too; fit my need perfectly. Oh well.)

WELL. On to more sparkly and fun things.

From JAK&JIL, Giambattista Valli. Mmmmm, je l’adore.

This guy from Easy Fashion really caught my eye for some reason.



These sweet fashion illustrations from MITICA FASHION ILLUSTRATIONS. I love them. Every time I see them, though, they make me want to crumple my sad little sketches into balls and throw them out the window into the rain. But I’m not an artist per se… I think once I get a fabric, I know what to do… and my simple drawings suffice for my needs; the real design is in my head.  😛


A particularly gorgeous one. Slightly GV-esque for me.

And hey, apparently Emma Watson is going to do Burberry’s ad campaign next season. Wow. (FabSugar)
She’s one that’s been on the edge of my radar… I’m not a huge celeb-style-stalker (haha, I stick with likeminded bloggers instead!). But she’s on there.

OK, bedtime pour moi. Bonne nuit!
