All I Want for Christmas

"I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself you see."

Burberry Creeper knock-offs from Jeffrey Campbell, I need you.

Been a while.. so much has happened... working on uploading vintage items to my etsy, but my job in the fashion industry has consumed my life. Not complaining at all. hopefully getting on that soon.

The holiday season is here! My favorite time. Check out my amazon wish list for inspiration. Half practical / half complete and utter nonsensical wish list items.. haha. I'm constantly adding new things.

Comic Con


This past weekend I attended Comic Con at the Javits center. In normal circumstances, I'd be scared off by these types of events, but my friend's boyfriend was selling his toys at a booth so I decided to help out and see what all the craze was for. It was a good excuse to act like a cartoon for a few hours, although I'm seriously contemplating dying my hair all blue (or pink? we'll see. . . ). It weirdly wasn't as dorky/scary as I thought, and Hello Kitty was everywhere. Comic books, pop art and Japanese pop culture was in excess, which ended up making the whole trip well worth it.

Inspiration: Kurt Cobain

Getting inspired by menswear, when I never really thought twice about what mens' fashion is really about. I usually prefer if a guy is nonchalant and not obsessed with fashion, but still looks fashionable and chic. Not sure if that can exist, but it sure does seem like guys who are best dressed just sort of flop out of bed and get dressed with an uncaring attitude, but still look amazing and unorganized-ish-ly put together. Men always look so comfortable too, right? which is definitely one of my fashion goals for fall...

anyway... Kurt Cobain best describes what I mean. He will always be a huge source of inspiration.

I saw Drive last night and I am so obsessed with it. It's perfect. It's neo-noir, dream-like and almost meditative with slight bouts of violence thrown in to keep you in check.. my ultimate film. and watching Ryan Gosling for 100 minutes on screen was amazing for obvious reasons...haha.

The sort of fairytale theme song played throughout the movie was probably the best part of the film. If you're into minimal modern '80s synth sounds, this is the best:

Just when I was starting to get kind of sick of seeing Litas everywhere, these come along. I might as well give Jeffrey Campbell my wallet at this point..

Betsey Johnson

Betsey Johnson was one of the first designers I became obsessed with a while ago when I first started getting into fashion. I must say I've outgrown her style, but some pieces are just so cute and romantic and feminine, that I can't help but divert back to her every once in a while for inspiration. and I always make it a point to browse her store if not for a minute or so whenever I go to the mall... out of habit, if anything. I was really impressed with her Spring 2012 collection, though!  I especially love how some of the pieces are simple with just a slight bit of edge, aside from her usual extremes. Probably because it was inspired by lingerie, since so many of the pieces are sheer and white and extra romantic. love.

It's officially fashion week here in New York, which means I'm obsessively refreshing style.com to see the latest of the latest collections that have been displayed... so far I'm loving these pieces from Vena Cava, gaga glasses and all.. too good. It's also the most vintagey collection I've seen so far, aside from maybe Steven Allen which is probably why I was drawn to it in the first place.

It always comes down to the shoes for me, though...  typical.
