Touching face base

Really excited about the Fall coming soon... I'm on the search for the perfect boots. I will post pictures soon of findings.

In other news Rodarte Spring 2011 Collection is amazing and Phillip Lim of course. Can't wait for Paris!

Not yours, that's mine!

So how are you covered? Make something that no one has ever seen before. Not that hard, right?

Doesn't seem like there is much change with this bill that was passed. You can't copyright the strong shoulder, the pocket tee, or the bandage dress. But maybe you can copyright something new - if anyone can come up with something that is.

When you are bored with everything, sometimes it takes a designer like Yigal Azrouel to pick you up. C'mon Fall RTW, we have been waiting...

I need to boycott magazines for a month. This would be very hard for me to do considering all the Fall August issues will soon fill my mailbox with pages of thigh high socks, lace up booties, faux fur and musky winter perfume samples.

I need to draw inspiration from life, rather than what other's (editor's) ideas of fashion are. A few years ago I felt I had discovered something new, that the masses were yet unaware. Reminiscing, some of my favorite outfits were pieces I threw on mismatched and without planning that oddly birthed perfect creations.

I am set out to derive original thoughts from the beauty of people, nature, food, mundane daily tasks - life.

I know it is difficult to be 'original' today; the runways, department stores and shoulder pads from the 80's prove this but here's to trying.

The proud pair

One of my earliest (and very few!) memories of being poked fun at involve socks. Playing basketball in a very small town in Texas, I wore them proudly up to my knees when no one else did.

In college I sported legwarmers with heels in good taste, colorful tubes with sneakers to dance music parties or scrunched down with boots - I've always had a taste for the pair.

Seeing Chloe Sevigny's new line for Opening Ceremony has me smiling with loyalty for the leopard ones.

If you need some assistance and weren't always on board, check out Refinery's ode to the two.
