Why couldn’t they have done something like this?!

I just saw this on Style Rookie, the fashion blog by 13 year old kid-with-style Tavi (THIRTEEN?! WHAT?! She writes so well! How can this be?! If you haven’t seen it already, check it out. Seriously. It’s amazing) and I had to repost it.
This spread is from the September issue of Vogue Paris:
Ignore how hot Sasha Pivovarova looks for a second and direct your eyes to the right. That pinky mauve abomination to the right. Um.. “oh”. Tavi is right. What. The. Fuck. From someone who is into fonts, and into Vogue, I just do not know what the f*ck the Art Director thought she was doing when she used “Curlz“. It’s so blatant. You get the privilege of being the ART DIRECTOR of VOGUE PARIS and you use CURLZ?! WHAT?! I don’t even own Curlz. That swirly mis-balanced piece of sh*t of a font is reserved for PC users with no imagination, you know, the kind that use rainbow coloured Comic Sans in their documents to ‘fun things up’. Ohh it makes me so angry!!! Oh Carine, how could you let this happen?! And while I’m ranting, why did they put “On” and “A” on separate lines?! It makes me fricken uncomfortable.
Put on a happy face? I will NOT thank you very much.
So Kate Moss’ AW09 Collection for Topshop launches tomorrow. All around the world, girls are simultaneously reaching for their credit cards. I can just imagine the bedlam in store. Anyway, I had a look at the collection and I have to say, as an aside to the clothes, I really like Kate Moss in the shots. Look at her face. Look at the hair! The way it moves! Anyhow, with regard to the clothes, I like some of them… I don’t like that whole butterfly/batwing thing she’s got goin’ on but I am down with the coats. All the pics below.
So few weeks ago I wrote about my good times at Crane Brothers, and the custom shirt that was ready to be picked up. Today I am writing to inform you that it got picked up and it is awesome.
Boyfriend chose a dark green check, small collar, barrel cuffs. I approve. I like the green. It’s like a hunting green. It makes me want to dress him up in a hunting hat and brown leather boots.
He probably won’t let me.
A while back, I heard about some crazy ‘Department Store’ coming soon. I didn’t know what it was and should have asked my hairdresser but whatevs, all is unveiled in this post at Isaac Likes. It sounds awesome.
Weeks ago I was in my wardrobe trying to get something from the top shelf, and the whole thing fell down. I don’t know how it happened! Okay, so I don’t want to go into the details but I am pretty much saying I broke it. Part of the fitting was still in the wall. The rest of it was on the ground. Along with half my clothes. Ever since, all garments have been sitting in various locations around the room (predominately floor, bed and beanbag). Grim. It was all going okay until Saturday when I had a breakdown. I couldn’t take it anymore, couldn’t wait for the Landlord to fix the damned thing, and decided that I had to do something about it.
Results? This shiny silver contraption that (after an hour of constructing) now holds many of my clothes (and boyfriend’s) in shop-like precision and colour order! Hoorah! (I secretly want to get many of these and group like clothes on separate racks – creating a room of shiny, categorised goodness – but that might be going too far). The organisation of the clothes on the floor lead to a re-organisation of all the rest of the clothes and I have started on the shoes. It was AWESOME. Some would say this was anal and not a good way to spend your Monday night, but I like to think of myself as ‘particular’. There’s nothing like reorganising a wardrobe (with matching hangers) to help with that minor OCD I’ve got goin’ on. Ha.
Before and after pics after the jump.
