Mon Favourite

Found this look from Alexander Wang's Resort line for the winter. It's the first look of the line and it is by far my favorite. Check out the expert pleating on the skirt and how well it goes together as it is connected to the vest.

In With the Nude

Especially for summer, when clothing hues seemingly get brighter, what color should the hues of shoes be? Nude. The newest thing for summer is to wear bright hues with nude or neutral shoes. This makes the color pop and keeps the viewer from being distracted from the clothing. For example, my dear cousin Evelyn wore a beautiful, classy magenta t-length dress from prom. The dress was not overly frilly, bedazzled, or in any way tacky, and what made the outfit well put together was the lack of distractions. Her pumps were nude ;) This is a prime example of how shoes can make an outfit rather than break it. remember not to go overboard with color this summer. Put emphasis on what is needed to be emphasized and stray from accessory distractions. One main solution to this is to wear nude pumps or sandals. Be in with the nude.

playing dress up

I found a doll today who was perfect to play dress up with! My cousin was such a trouper in letting me throw clothes and ideas at her! Check out for immediate gratification.

Why Not A Bigger Size?

American Apparel Doesn't Make Skimpy Painted-On Shorts in Sizes Bigger Than 6I was just reading an article on about how several garbs from American Apparel only come in xs, s, and m sizes meaning that those who are a 4-6 can buy the clothing. It is only the short shorts that American Apparel sells in these limited sizes. Even though I believe that this is an intelligent idea, as it keeps those who would have their back side falling out of the shorts from buying them, many find this to be a controversy. People have been asking American Apparel about the limited range of sizes and find a discrimination against those who would not fit into the xs-m sizes. Personally, I agree with those who respond backing by saying that a person larger than a medium would be saving themselves by not being able to buy such pieces of clothing. Even for the wearers of an xs, shorts such as disco shorts at American Apparel are cut so short that they could only be worn for certain occasions and to certain places. Funny story, I own these disco shorts ha ha! That's what drew me to this article, as I was not aware of the limitation on sizes. I have worn these shorts and can testify that they could easily become scandalous. It's a fine line between acceptable and unacceptable when it comes to wearing these shorts in public. When American Apparel comes out with such small pieces of clothing in only small sizes, be reminded that they design for the body type of a dancer. Don't feel discriminated against by the clothing either; only a small percentage of people are born with a dancer-like body.

Toilet Time

As I flipped through the pages of the latest that I just received in the mail, my eyes were immediately drawn to the newest Marc Jacobs ad. Model Jamie Bochert is standing in a toilet in this ad, in front of a stark white background, with pocelain-like makeup, and a long, flowing tulle dress on. The dress is lined with delicate black ribbings and is almost flush against the flat white wall behind her. With all of this I almost forgot that Jamie Bochert was standing in an old toilet with her legs knee deep in its bowl. Marc Jacobs always draws my attention with his oddly beautiful models and fuzzy pictures against the other airbrushed ads that lay within the same magazine pages.
