How Exciting!

Some things I'm excited about:

-I was finally able to purchase a really great navy vintage blazer! It fits perfectly and it pretty light weight, which make is CA wearable
-Urban Outfitters has tights 2 for $20. I bought a blue/grey pair and a heavy purple pair
-Alexander Wang's upcoming diffusion line
-Comme des Garcons upcoming H&M line
-Thakoon's upcoming Target line (was the alexander mcqueen one just a rumor?)
-The latest issue of Bazaar which not only has Alber Elbaz dresses as James Bond, but Karl Lagerfield admitting to loving rap
-I went to the library and came back with lots of goodies: Books that have biographies of most of the influential and important designers throughout time, and biographies on: Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Katherine Hepburn, and Jackie O.
-About a week and a half ago I visited the FIDM (fashion institute of design and merchandising) with Alena and Michelle (sadly Jessica was unable to join us!) and found my dream school. Seriously one floor holds Kelli's winning look from the grocery challenge on this season of Project Runway, AND an entire wall of Christian Dior ORIGINAL sketches complete with pattern samples, dating back to the 30's and 40's. The only thing separating us was a piece of glass. I decided that I MUST go to this school! ...and convince my mom to somehow let me go...
-September is quickly approaching... we all know what that means: Fashion Week(s)!


And what I am not so excited for:
-I probably won't be able to post agian until after Sept. 19! I got into some trouble with my parents (which i kind of ironic that out of ALL my friends, me, the innocent one, is in trouble) and am banned from electronics for a month! My parents are out of town this weekend so I snuck on. It wasn't anything major; I said I was going to the movies, plans with my friends changed, ended up not going to the movies, didn't call my parents, parents mad at me for lying. So I will have to find a way to see all the spring shows, since I am not allowed to use the computer. This means my lunches at school will most likely consist of being in the library pouring over elle.com and style.com.

Some inspiration to hold me over:













Just saw (most of) How to Steal a Million (must finish it soon!) and the clothes are to die for. I wish I could find more pictures of it!


This was the best scene, when Audrey is in disguise and is wearing all black lace, including this stunning eye mask:
