freja by tommy ton for

favorite model hands down.
love her.

wednesday treat!

hey, kiddos!
so they put what appears to be the whole dead man's bones album up on their myspace
and it's pretty fantastic.
i saw them live on friday
accompanied by a special marionette show and the silverlake children's choir
and ohhhh it was great
we sat on the floor in the front behind detective gordon's kids
and across from devendra (who is quite small in real life...) and kat dennings
anyhow, the real show was not the crowd
but the little kids singing and dancing
the spooky puppets
and the oh so handsome men and women running the show
check out the album today on myspace
and buy it soon!

sweet as pie.

luella ss10

so many of the collections i've seen have been lovely but without a common thread.
the thread here is strong.
nothing groundbreaking, perhaps (because so many collections are...cough.), but the proportions interesting - slightly off in a few places and i like it. a little wide, a little short, they play with a woman's shape in a curious way.

and if i don't get my hands on that black heart dress i just won't know what to do with myself.

thanks to the lovely reader who pointed out the collection!

prada ss10

even though some of the models frighten me...
i like the prada collection.
mostly though, the lip and pigtails are amazing.
i need to find this lipstick.

the hair (and the braids at the wang show...) makes me sad i don't have long hair anymore.
but then i remember my hair looked fairly ridiculous in braids and pigtails.
and i like it now.
so nevermind.

this dress is so sweet.
who makes it?

2000 years remain

karlie kloss . french open . vogue us . oct 09 .

just getting through my october vogue and fell in love with these couture shots. styled by the fabulous grace coddington ... the dior is to die for. you could walk down the aisle in the first look. if the aisle wasn't in a church and you weren't (pretending to be?) a virgin.
or something.

which reminds me (ahhhhaaha)
'are you religious?' // 'i guess i'm a nonpracticing jew' // 'ha well i'm a nonpracticing virgin'

[also, listen to this]

The Wolves (Act I and II)

surreal surreal surreal

"I'm at a point where I no longer have a deep desire to share my music with anyone, having spent many years imparting my songs to the public. Although I have great respect for the social dynamic of music-- that it should be shared with others, that it brings people together-- I now feel something personal is irrevocably lost in this process. Now, while I refuse to act wholly on this impulse (I refuse to take my audience for granted in spite of my mood), I'm still trying to find the value of the song in private."


opening ceremony + spike jonze present

opening ceremony x where the wild things are

i, like every other sane creature on this planet with a childhood and even a remote access to pop culture, can't wait to see the beauty that will unfold on october 16.
for now, i will instead swoon over this collection.
all faux, all amazing, all furrrrr.

these three are absolutely melting my heart.
all the texture!!
