i absolutely love Christopher Kane’s spring summer 2011 it has as much neon, lace (real and laser print), texture and volume a girl could want while still remaining minimal, modern and refined.

heck yes

omg so remem when i was all like “i still plan on wearing weird mash ups of prints” etc.. (yeah Carrie, it was like 3 hours ago.) well.  Erdem HAS IT.  and sometimes i think i am crazy for wanting to wear things so drastically all over the place!  so.  print mixing.  lace mixing.  crazy times with quirky florals, washed out prints and odd color combos.  AAAAAND they are in super minimal silhouettes!  omg. i am so excited.  i am so freaking about the button up you have no idea.  boobies feel so vulgar lately – high necklines, buttoned up collars, necks themselves being the focus are straight where its at.  (because of the small size of my line production doesnt end until next month, but when it does – YOU will freak.)  gee – am i excited right now?  i tink i ams!  woo hoo!  WHITE AND IVORY!  NAVY AND BLACK!  WEIRDNESS!  LACE!  oh my.

silly me…

im not sure why when i am in London i feel more free to wear funny/weird/different clothes than i do when i am in nyc.  this is one of the fashion capitals, yet i still wear my black on black go to pieces, my same ratty tank and cut offs, and the 3 fave items of the moment that are usually a little more fun, but are still kinda whatev to me…  idk, maybe y’all would disagree.  maybe its this humid sticky disgusting weather in manhattan that makes me cringe at the thought of fabric on my skin.  maybe its too many clothes in my closet to be able to see clearly and use any imagination when dressing.. i have to say, cool weather plus minimal garment choices do equal fun times.  so.  who knows, maybe ill get rid of a bunch of stuff (yeah right) and hold my breath till fall.
