vogue italia via fotodecadent

a. i love this editorial in this odd way...
b. i'm sorry i've been so bad about blog maintenance since coming back for ny. this is the first time i've had to myself in days it seems....and it will be shortlived since i'm out to a movie and then three birthday parties this evening (why does everything happen all at once?) it is nice to be busy and see friends though. so nice.
c. this is completely unrelated and irrelevant but there was a very cute boy with long curly hair at this party i attended last night. verrrry cute. apparently he has a girlfriend. (who are these alleged 'girlfriend' characters anyway.....i mean really.)
d. it's 80 here. 80 degrees. it's also february. just saying.
e. i'm stopping my list of useless information but i've been enjoying making lists lately.

the end.

oh, chateau

several things, why does her hair always look perfect? it can be ratatattatty and look fabulous and frankly, mine wavy looks like a hot mess. (you should see it right now...) is it just that she owns the bad look and makes it look good (check) or it she just has magic perfect hair (check)?
ohh, perfecttshirtdressmoccasinsandchanel.
oh, mk.


jak&jil, lanvin ring

i have never seen a ring more perfect for you. you and kate need to be bff.
//can we please be bff with her?
as a small point of interest, dd and i saw rachel zoe last night at dinner.
she's not nearly as scary in real life.
also....rodger with a d was with her. HA.

the only gossip girl

post proenza, at erin wasson via stylesightings

if you ask me..

i'm sick today and my throat hurts and breathing is hard and it's stupid

and i got stressed out about even staying home since i just got back from are sparse these days. hopefully i'm okay for now. the economy is scaarrry.

and with sleep and water i'm feeling a bit better, hopefully the trend is up.

it's on the list

so i'm pretty much in love with this harput's own piece they've titled the 'swacket.'

it's so very versatile and the shapes and spaces it makes are beautiful.

and click your shoes



just another day in paradise

so in an attempt to a. not have to rewrite the details of my trip and b. follow some almost always prudent josh-advice, i have opened up my moleskine to you. this is a first (as far as i know...) and it feels quite scary, since i write for myself, to myself. i'm mostly banking on the fact that no one will actually take the time to read this (as colorful as it may be, sprinkled with rodarte, and phillip, and chloe) and that it (as far as i can remember) is not one of my crazy-obsessive rants. only fashionandnewyork obsessed here. and damn, that's a good feeling.

so let me run through the points you might be most interested in ::

I MET PHILLIP LIM. if it wasn't enough that i got to go to the showroom, touch the entire f09 line, even try some of it on, and eat a beautiful salad while tall and beautiful ladies modeled what we pleased, I MET PHILLIP LIM. he came over to speak to susan, i was introduced by Wen, his lovely and kind partner in crime, and he walked us around the room showing us his favorite pieces (all of it really). i was in pure and absolute heaven. and i kid you not, phillip put a belt on me. i thought shaking his hand was enough, but the man practically dressed me. i'm getting carried away for highlights, so if you want to read details about how kind he was, refer to the above photos. (i got some pretty beautiful photos of the showroom and an adorable snap or two of mr lim himself but i'm debating whether or not it's okay to post for now they'll lie dormant but i do ohsohope i can share the beauty with you.)

FASHION SHOWS ARE THE BEST THINGS EVER. I went to Milly, and while it was no Marc or 3.1, let me tell you, it was a high like no other. the room fills up with flashes and chattering and people until a man comes out and pulls the tarp back from the runway. the lights go down. the lights go up, the music pounds, the models stomp out. CHILLS. the energy is insane. i need to do it again and again and again as much as is humanly possible.

the rest of the trip was entirely amazing, and i'll post a few photos of odds and ends tomorrow but for now i'm heading to bed, i am running on four hours of sleep and up much later than i anticipated. still running on a newyorkfashionhigh.

i'm back!

ladies and gents!

my trip was the most fabulous wonderful fabulous thing ever.

i have photos of some pretty amazing things (if i can show them)
and details of some pretty amazing experiences.

it may take me a few days to get back up to normal speed, but bear with me in the interim.

i am SO EXCITED about life and newyork and fashion it's too much.
i hope it's contagious :)

manhattan is for lovers

via lolita

all the sun in the massive onslaught of fwphotos is DECEIVING.

it. is. cold.

i will probably look like an odd little bundled creature this week since i live in barely-there tshirts, jean cutoffs, and tiny ballet flats. eek.

as a point of housekeeping, i won't really be around this week....
but i'll be back!
hopefully better than ever :)

i'm flying!
