Put in a happy font. No seriously, please.

Posted on August 27, 2009

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: 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…

Kate Moss for Topshop – for you tomorrow.

Posted on August 27, 2009

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.

My new wardrobe.

Posted on August 25, 2009

My new wardrobe. Weeks ago I was in my wardrobe trying to get something from the top shelf, and the whole thing fell down. Part of the fitting was still in the wall. The rest of it was on the ground. Along with half my clothes. All garments have been sitting in various locations around the room (predominately floor, bed and beanbag), ever since. 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 it, and decided that I had to do something about it. Results? This shiny silver contraption that now holds many of my clothes (and boyfriend’s) in shop-like precision and colour order! Hoorah! I want to…
