i’m movin’ up and over to join all the other fashion people at blogger. i know it’s annoying when people change their url’s, especially if you’re as lazy as i am. i apologize, and i promise things look nicer on the new blog. now if you’ll just follow me…
no hard feelings wordpress, i just need room to grow. you know how it is.
since really delving into the world of online fashion [a necessity when one lives in a cultural black hole] i have developed a certain desire. i’ve found myself in desperate need of learning swedish, dutch, and danish. with all these awesome scandinavian fashion sites i constantly find myself in the predicament of “you look so cute but i haven’t the slightest idea what you are saying!” it’s truly an international travesty.
shopping, however, is a language which i consider universal. no matter what language you speak, conveying the message “I WANT THAT” is certainly do-able. and i want almost every item on youheshe‘s online store. youheshe is based in denmark, and carries everything from vanessa bruno and sass&bide to brands you’ve never heard of. the site’s design is artsy but clean and well organizd, something i am a total sucker for. cute clothes but disorganized site? i’m out. not a problem for youheshe, which organizes their stuff by designer, catagory, and then color. here’s a sampling:
american vintage dress arena 10 phantom ring
rika t-shirt dress rasta silk dress
sabrina dehoff bunny necklace malababa clutch
athé by vanessa bruno tank superfine tank
and here are some extremely practical danish words that i picked up:
naeste = next
sko = shoes
alle = all
tasker = bags
smykker = jewelry
any of you nordic kids, feel free to throw me some vocab words. :)
everything you need for a lazy summer afternoon.
[except SPF, of course!]
is it weird that going to h&m always makes me wish i were a boy?
i snatched this tee from the men’s section. :)
a nice comfy outfit to take a five hour AP test in.
so lucky magazine [aka an edited catalog of amazingly cute things i can’t afford] has this page on their website called “cute outfit of the day,” which i think is brilliant. basically it shows off how cool their staff looks all the time and serves as a big HA HA to all those nine to fivers with boring dress codes. here are some of my faves:
costume institute gala review w/ photos courtesy of style.com
wee ooh wee ooh, babe alert:
emiiiiiiile marry me hirsch

stammy in proenza schouler
lou doillon in marni

jordan dunn in bill blass w/ peter som
sasha in rag and bone
mary j. blige in micheal kors
cfda director steven kolb
rosie huntington-whiteley in burberry
daphne guinnes in l’wren scott with the freakishly tall l’wren herself
christy turlington in escada
gag, hate that song.
the results are in from the costume institue’s gala, and i have to say they aren’t horribly exciting. then again i am sitting at home on my computer in sweats blogging about it aren’t i? sigh…
[kidding of course, i always wear an oscar de la renta gown and six inch louboutin’s when i blog.]

seriously, is that not the coolest name ever? and the clothes! agh, so amazing. i wish my local borders carried more australian fashion mags. of course i’m always too cheap to cough up the cash for the international rags so i just devour them in store and go home with my five dollar anthem mag. i swear when i have some sort of real career i will have about ten magazines being delivered to my door every day. i’m addicted! :D now here’s some more from australian fashion week:
cute name? pink, black and grey? i’m in.
bird graphics and bare feet? hell yeah.
coolest name + coolest clothes ever? yesssss.
incredibley inventive and exciting? nah.
some incredibly cute dresses and shorts? aw yeah.
some weird samurai hair and one incredibley frightening model?
[seriously guy, no offense, but you scare the shit out of me.]
all is forgiven because of the bombass clothes.
so i’ve been checking out australia’s fashion week photos, [which has proven to be a surprisingly difficult task – apparently my computer and vogue australia’s website don’t enjoy each other’s company]. it’s definitely different from fashion on this half of the globe. there is a lot more playfulness in australian fashion. it seems to lack that uptight pretension you can easily spot in a lot of fashion from america and europe. i was especially glad to come upon ginger & smart while browsing, so i looked them up and was pleased to find that i liked their old stuff even better. [they even managed to make a maxi-dress that i don’t despise!] definitely an inspiration for summer dressing.
[can’t say i dig the obnoxious fringey stuff though…]
kind of different to see her looking so feminine, but of course she looks amazing no matter what.
