NYFW IN MY OWN NUTSHELL

A bit late in the game, but it is technically still fashion month so here we go!

Creatures of Comfort
The vibe of the look on the left just oozes cool. Basically the only thing you ever want to ooze, nawmean? And the color combo on the right is the most perfect grouping I have ever seen and never thought of. Not one color is repeated and it makes. so. much. sense.

Calvin Klein Collection
First off, those boots. Second and thirdly, those boots. Seriously you guys, time to get some more-hole Docs and thrift all the long sweaters out there. What an unexpected direction for CKC - all those knits and textures and grungey goodness. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better than last Fall (which I now have a piece of but more on that later).

Proenza Schouler
I don't even know what's going on with all these prints. What I do know is that I want to jump into all of them, like poltergeist-into-the-TV style but with all the joy (not terror). And I'm glad to see that the longer length coats are here to stay.

Rodebjer
What can I say, I love me some Scandi design. Rodebjer just knows how to strike that perfect note of dressy casual. A crisp white shirt and leather trousers, but done in the most undone relaxed way. And the thing that looks like it was pulled out of a drain but I still inexplicably want to wrap around my face? That's what you call Scandi magic.

Theory
One of the shows I was most curious to see after the drop of the Theyskens name. A bit less flair than the usual Theyskens shows, but just enough to hint at his presence behind the scenes, still directing the classic brand. Transparent layering twist on an otherwise classic business silhouette and a full blown weird ruffly vest situation (technical terms) that I will be stalking the release of.

The Row
No words. Well besides "no words" there are actually no other words. Besides maybe, "Mary Kate and Ashley, how about a personal order?"

Tibi
The crossover-scarf-as-shirt styling that spawned a thousand Instagrams. Now you know what to do when there are no clean shirts. The whole trompe l'oeil shirt-tied-around-waist-but-not-actually-a-separate-shirt thing has been done for a few seasons, but the top left look with the same fabric almost making it a twofer (look it up), is just. so. fresh. Or maybe it actually is two pieces and in that case please strike from the record what do I know anyway? Well actually, I do know that I will be emulating that bottom right look because ASIAN. *claps dust off hands and walks away proudly* (everyone confused)


...Maybe I will or maybe I won't get to the other city show recaps...

MYSTERY.

PROENZA SCHOULER SS14

me outside the Jeremy Laing show // ph by Le 21ème

As evidenced by this precious jacket (cardigan?) of mine, I am obsessed with all things woven. Whether mid century wall hangings or rare runway pieces, my greed knows no bounds. I want it all. If there's a party in the warp and a party in the weft, I'm there. So when I saw the Proenza Schouler show,  it was like those clutches were speaking directly to me. Pssst. Hey. Hi. Me and you, come spring?
And let us not forget the hardware of the sleeker, minimal pieces that balanced out all the shag. Great hardware will get you far in my book. Right up there with great shoes (no mysteries here). That aforementioned tailspin? Case. in. point.

PS143

How does one go about getting a wardrobe sponsor? If I am to attend my very first (and probably only) NYFW this September, I need to come correct with some heavy detention school girl vibes.

WHAT SAY YOU PROENZA SCHOULER??

FW12

I was all prepared to do a recap of FW12 so far (jk I wasn't), but I'm sure you've been desensitized to my laziness for a while now. Unless you're new here, in which case Welcome! and aim low with me! So I'll just tell you that Proenza Schouler was my favorite by a forever to the infinitieth power landslide.

I live for blogging. Don't you?

LITERAL


Theory bomber jacket // H&M button down shirt // H&M sweater // Proenza Schouler x J Brand jeans // Proenza Schouler shoes

It used to irritate me so much when people wore exact runway looks, but more and more these days I find myself inspired to do my own interpretation with stuff in my closet. I had always wanted these jeans but they were waaaay too much, so after finding them super discounted a few weekends ago I couldn't pass them up. I think maybe there was a subconscious plan to wear them with these shoes. Somehow it all ended up a little tooooo Proenza Schouler Fall 2010 for my taste, but oh well, I guess I got it out of my system.

VERY MUCH MELTING MY FACE


Proenza Schouler Pre Fall 2011 (still don't understand pre seasons)

Those ikat/baja/neon/what-in-the-world prints are exactly what I never knew I needed.
Spring is going to vomit color all over me. Can't wait.

Note to self: gigantic cholo shorts with proportions that make no sense whatsoever. ASAP!
