Rodarte


Recently, Rodarte has caught my eye. I have become extremely fond of the unique knits and absolutely stunning pieces produced by Kate and Laura Mulleavy. All pieces that come down their runway are extremely different, and each eye catching. Rodarte is doing a line for Target which is coming out December 20, and I can't wait to see what these amazing designers produce at such affordable prices.

As the weather gets cooler, its time to buy winter jackets

Living in Wisconsin, it tends to be quite chilly from November until March. So I am making a headway on finding a perfect winter coat. I'm posting some of my favorites here...

Grunge Is Back



Remember Marc Jacob's oversized grunge sweaters? Well the look is back again. Big sweaters and printed knit fill the fall trend guides. Some of my favorite looks this fall involve big sweaters and boots. It's all about being comfortable this fall and winter!

Fashion Week Continues...

...with amazing spring pieces! Rosa Cha showed a bright and polka-dot filled swim suit line. Cynthia Steffe showed a line full of ruffles and florals, which I am quite fond of! Charlotte Ronson's spring line was absolutely amazing, with a punk vibe, lace, and a mostly black color scheme. Christian Siriano of Project Runway showed a "fierce" collection filled with vibrant long gowns. Vivienne Tam's collection reminded me of the 70s, filled with butterflies and natural colors. Derek Lam showed bright colors with beading and sequins; such beautiful pieces! DVF's show, as always, absolutely amazing! She is such a fashion god! I can't wait to comment on the rest of the shows this week!

The first shows of Fashion Week were quite amazing. I really enjoyed Ports 1961 and Mara Hoffman. Mara Hoffman showed some really amazing dresses down her runway. They were bright and made from truly unique textiles. I can't wait to see the rest of the shows this week!

Senior Pictures

Over the previous weekend, I took my senior yearbook pictures. We took them outside in a field of long grass and at an abandoned copy shop. The pictures turned out really great, and I put together some nice outfits for them. I wore a floral dress and double buckle belt, and my friend's floral top and white cutoff shorts. The photographer, Megan, was really fun to work with and had some creative ideas. I am looking forward to seeing the rest of them.

The September Issue

"Fashion is a religion. This is a bible."

MySpace Codes

R.J. Cutler's film, The September Issue, delves deep into the life of Anna Wintour, the editor and chief of Vogue magazine. As everyone knows, the September issue of Vogue is filled to the brim with fashion and trends, therefore it tends to weigh in at nearly four pounds. The movie takes us through the journey of Anna and her crew during the completion of the September issue itself. Fashion Week, photo shoots, journeys to Europe, and staff meetings are all included in the strenuous process of completing the issue on time. The movie delves deep into the conflicts between Anna and Vogue's creative director Grace Coddington. Both women have taken roles in Vogue for over fourteen years. The movie shows the crazy process of creating the September issue through showing designers and their pieces and editors and their work. Anna Wintour is the center of fashion, and she can decide what is in an what is out through her greatly deserved influence. I am looking forward to seeing this movie come out. Be sure to see it when it on September 11th in select cities!
