Stained Glass Patchwork

I would eat green eggs in ham, Sam I Am, I would eat them in a box, I would eat them with a fox if only if only I could have this dress.

Next in Line

images: interviewmagazine
When I was five years old my mom and I plopped on the couch for our Friday night pizza and a movie and she put on My Fair Lady. From that instant on, I was obsessed with Audrey Hepburn. I spent each Friday after that scouring Blockbuster to find a new Audrey film I had yet to see. I learned every song, every line until I had Audrey down. Still to this day classic movie stills hang in my closet to inspire me with her quirky grace and poise.
When I was seven years old my mom and I plopped on the couch for our Friday night pizza and a movie and she put on The Professional. Surely I was too young to see such a film, but I suppose she didn't mind too much. That was when I first saw Natalie Portman. She was maybe 12 years old, skinny and lanky with a dark brown bob--just like me! I thought she was the epitome of cool.
As time as passed, I've seen more and more correlations between these two actresses leaving me to the conclusion that Natalie Portman is the closest thing we'll ever have to another Audrey Hepburn. Now, you may care to disagree, but I think that together, these women represent the essence of classy cool.

On a completely different note, I am looking to add some new features to Dirty Laundry so stay tuned! Until then, you can check out s'more DL here.

Not exactly sure why (maybe the pose and pants?) but this man reminds me of Yul Brynner in The King and I. A huge compliment in my opinion.

I know everyone and their mother are talking about these Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte shoes, but it's for v. good reason. Look at them!

Comfortable because it's familiar, excited because it's something new, Halston has me floating up to cloud nine.

NY Fashion Week 2

images: style
With the exception of a few pieces from 3.1 Phillip Lim, I've felt like some of the collections showcased on the runways so far have been on the safe (or dull) side. With both 3.1 Phillip Lim and Michael Kors, usually two of my favorites, it looked as though the models were on their way into the office.

Wink, Wink

I have no words to describe what I am showing you. Just sit back, watch and do comment. I would love to hear what you have to say...

Before I submit to you yet another excuse (although honestly I'm still lacking inspiration), I will acknowledge that every other blog I've read today offers the same one: school is now is session. Since school has started, and even before that (naturally, in the life of gi), things have been flowing in non-stop. Thursday, after a long day of school, I zoomed back into SF to help out at an event for my internship. SPIN Magazine threw a party for G by Guess and it was fabulous! Loving every minute, it further confirmed that I am headed in the right direction! Plus, my hard work also scored me a ticket to SF Outside Lands. And on continues the busy busy week--but trust me, I am not complaining!
I attended Outside Lands last year and had a complete blast. This year proved no different. Rockin' out to the good tunes of The Morning Benders, Matt and Kim, Atmosphere, M.I.A. and Tenacious D (to name a few)...ahhh. Above are some photos I really like from SPINearth's coverage of the event. Click on the link if you want to see more!
