getting dropped from def jam must really be hard

where’s waldo?

i don’t even know how to spell her name, but that one was a little too easy.

If you do, remember the secret of a travel wardrobe: color coordination. If everything works with everything else, you’ll always look put together without having to spend time thinking about it. If you keep the accessories to a minimum, there’s less to carry.

rockin’ some shades

she’s no lolita, but it’s tough pulling off those glasses without looking like you want to seduce humbert humbert.

and like there’s only one beyonce out there- well until ms. b turns 30- i’ll admit that there’s probably only one of these ghetto fab kelises out there too.

we’ll see how long this particular blogging run lasts

new day. same excuses, so let’s get to it.

in an unmemorable article in this past weekend’s ny times book review- an english major still needs to make some use of that hefty education- there was a phrase that struck out. it went along the lines of “the combination of aesthetics and the erotic”, and while it was in reference to a book on- what else?- erotica, it of course makes perfect sense when applied to fashion. case in point- the new louis vuitton ads.



well at least a little bit. this one on the other hand makes the billionaire boy’s club member look like a cheap version of diana ross. as if diana ross could get any cheaper.

heads up on the reading material

before it’s in vogue, it’s in fashion week daily. ok, well this one isn’t going to be in “vogue” but the mag’s sally singer is researching a piece on MisShapes and downtown nightlife for the “atlantic monthly”.

apparently it takes a visit by sienna miller for someone to pick up on the tres ehhhh hipster phenomenon.

it’s gonna be a crazy ride

vogue tells us to expect the unexpected for alexander mcqueen’s new label mcq. but what’s so unexpected about the man not wanting to put logos on his clothes.

img

“I can’t have people walking down the street with a big McQ [logo] on them,” he says. “It’s vile, innit? I won’t put my name over everything just to bring in millions of pounds. It would do more harm in the long run.”

that era of the mall girl wearing a shirt with calvin klein or dolce and gabbana emblazoned on it in oversized letters has taken a backseat, at least for now. when celubutantes like lindsay lohan hang on the arm of the creepy kaiser and spout out how much they like marc jacobs or proenza or insert fashion favorite here, no one’s gonna be satisfied with the three letters McQ. way to be on trend alex.

the times gets snarky

another lohan- and simpson!- snub at the cfdas. and no, we’re not talking about anna wintour’s ire at the red-head’s (is it even red nows?) constant bathroom breaks. eric wilson in today’s not so interesting article about the event in the “times” did manage one bright spot.

img

Ms. Lohan and Ms. Simpson, in a white lace minidress from Michael Kors, may rightfully have confused the event with a charity dinner for impoverished fashion designers, given the scant bits of cloth they were offered to wear.

oh, that oscar wilde wit. just kidding. this guy does a better job at being funny. but nevertheless, there’s nothing like a gay fashionista putting a long island girl in her place.
