Nothing like a bit of lace

Brown Shoes

Usually I frown upon brown shoes. One can't wear them with black, so that's a major pain. I used to have these brown flats with a bow on them and every time I wore them with a dress, they made my feet look like stretched out fudge chunks. Another thing that comes to mind when I think of brown shoes is: Birkenstocks! Not the best looking shoes in the world, but they're really good for feet.

So, I was browsing the Marni website the other day, and I saw a pair of brown shoes. The difference is... I didn't disregard these shoes like I would with any other brown shoe. I wanted these. Somehow Marni has managed to make me want a pair of brown shoes!

Look at this beautiful thing! The brownness looks like marbled caramel!

*GASP* I love it!!

Good time

Brazilian Girls' frontwoman has awesome style.
I would post one of their music videos, but now on youtube it's like you can't embed ANYTHING anymore! What happened?!

She claims to be inspired by Loie Fuller, pioneer of both modern dance and theatrical lighting techniques.

MoMa Accessories

The Museum of Modern Art's store takes the term "wearable art" to a whole new level.

These pieces of jewelry are made of out everything from oil filters to hand blown venetian glass.

These rings look incredibly realistic.

Can you see the resemblence?

Months later, I am still in awe of the Chanel Pre-Fall 2008 collection. Mostly the hair...

I want to wear my hair like that. With all of those amazing clips. For the rest of my life!

John Lennon was not a messiah,

But Yoko's hat was.

"Martin Margiela has been called the J. D. Salinger of the fashion world, and rightly so — he refuses to be photographed and will only be interviewed by fax."

I really want the Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen Influence book right now.

Le Fringe

I want zem.
Christian Louboutin fringe boots.

Sitting here on an almost snowy day...

listening to Bjork, looking at editorials from Russian vogue, and wishing I lived in Versailles.
