the doors (and one hallway)

thinking about color blocking and fashion’s night out (fno for those in the know, yo.) me walking around london last year looking for bright colors to complete my ensemble. that jacket was my jam last summer/fall — you may remem it from last years fno   boom! look at that. using fno like an fno pro.

 this year however i will be wearing items from i still love you nyc — as will my girlfriend Waichi who is spinning the beats over at Ilori (across the street from Chanel, you know, on Spring?)

heheehe.  I Still Love You NYC across the street from Chanel in any capacity is just blowing my mind grapes right now.

blown!

anyway — fno.  i’m on the list for the party at Moschino, there’s the Scoop party with my favorite man repeller, obvies i haave to see the always amazing Bear and Cameron at Oak, and Sun Airway are playing a couple songs at Unis… all at the same time!  let’s see, it starts at 6 and it’s — 4:46     !!!!!

that means i should probs go and get dressed, like, NOW!

Runway to Retail: Christopher Kane’s Celestial Compass

Christopher Kane Celestial Tees

i am absolutely obsessed with Christopher Kane’s celestial masterpiece of a collection, but the sky high price of $325 for a tee shirt is a little too astronomical for my blood (even if it is an ultra soft, gorgeously printed and beautifully draped tee shirt, why yes — i was visiting them recently at Opening Ceremony — how’d you know?!)  so i am super excited for Jeffery Campbell (our lord and savior) to bring us a down to earth price point shoe that lets a girl feel like she’s walking on sunshine — or galaxies as the case may be!

Christopher Kane Celestial Collectiongee — getting a girl one of these dresses sure would be a cheeky way to say

“you are my universe”

acid queen

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.

R.A.D.

i love this whole look (from facehunter) she’s so sexy and edgy and over the top in the most relaxed way possible.  the button up shirt with leather shorts and fanny pack slung across her shoulder.  the ring – i just called Mishka to ask them if they made it.  i am sad to say they didnt, but then we had a nice little talk about how maybe they SHOULD make a ring like this…  also.  check out that freakin weird ass bolo tie too… i think i may have to try to make something like that is so bad ass.
