This is public school. If I can keep the girls off the pole and the boys off the pipe, I get a bonus.

the sartorialist
Ever since I saw this photo from the sart I've has my heart set on bell bottoms. Really, I'm quite tired of skinnies at the moment. This look is a breath of fresh air, especially the light jean + floppy hat + blouse combo. I've scanned a few vintage and thrift stores for a pair, with zero luck so far. So naturally my next step was etsy!

I really love the idea of cream lace ones or even the paisley ones. I think i'm going to try and snag the plain ones for starters, wish me luck!

I saw it in the store in KC(boo stl not having a store... seriously whats up with that?) when I was visting a college yesterday but unfortunately I had no cash. Also these dresses( here and here) from Nefertiti! I seriously need a job ASAP!

she’s either got a horrible cold or has been sniffing glue.

In order to learn as much about the industry as I can I've decided to do a weekly bio/interview/ informational piece on someone that caught my eye. I think it's fascinating to learn how people got their start and just how other people live. First up is
Edward Enninful
Edward Enninful is a stylist and the fashion director of i-D, a position that he has held since he was 18. He was born in Ghana but moved to London with his family as a teen. He first got his start when he was discovered at age 15 as a model. He started at university but left for his position at i-D, which he has held for 17 years. He is also a contributing editor for Italian, American and L'uomo Vogue. Enninful has worked with the worlds best photographers, including Stephen Meisel, Mario Testino, Annie Leibovitz and Terry Richardson. He has also styled numerous ad campaigns for major fashion houses such as Lanvin, Dior, Alberta Ferretti, Versace, D&G, etc. Damnnnn. Theres also great piece on him from the new york times here.

i'd never marry a republican

This kills me. The best part is when the peta activists storm the stage & get dragged off. And karen elson seizing on the ground at mcqueen...


Hope you had a fantastic weekend!

p.s. In honor of VeganMoFo I think I'm going to link one of my favorite vegan bloggers or recipes every post. I'm not trying to convert y'all to veganism, just trying raise awareness! Today we have: OhSheGlows. OSG is run by Angela Liddon, an amazing vegan bakery owner from Canada! She is such an amazing foodie, with fantastic photography to go along with her delectable creations. Here's one of her makes-me-wanna-salivate recipes: Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies. yum....

the hanukah bush

Good morning loves! I stumbled upon this jewel on raych's blog and it was way too good to pass up. Fashion bloggers + christmas(errr holidays) is a fantastic idea. It kind of got me excited for the holidays for a second, though I usually can't get in the spirit till the christmas stations start up again. It think it was all the gaudy jewels and fabrics that I adore...

have a happy day!

p.s. Of course I haven't decided on a college yet(still gotta finish those damn essays and apps), but I'm really considering majoring or minoring in art history! I started thinking about this last week and I think I would love it, and it would be a perfect

I really love the simplicity of the shapes and the intensity of the colors; they really punch up a basic item and make it stand out. I just really can't get over those hues! A lot of these seeem like they may be pretty easily thrifted; a lot of the shapes seem quite basic. Spring'll be so much fun, clothing-wise(per usual), I can already feel it.

hide your kids hide your wife

So basically, Alber Elbaz is a fucking genius. This video is too much for me to process right now, i just love it. Hopefully it comes to the STL or i'll be ebaying this shit. Actually thats a lie, ebay is too much of a hassle with "designer for" collections.

p.s. U2 IS COMING TO ST.LOUIS. I've been freaking out the past two days!

I don't need the help of a man to keep things running.

Guess who's back? The last month and a half of not blogging have honestly been a perfect break. Fall is just the busiet time for me! But I've never felt more disconnected from the fashion world and I'm ready to dive back in.
I'm really hoping to start fresh this time and do things a little differently, though. I'd like to be more organized and consistent and just more orignal.
One of the new segments I would like to start is a weekly etsy piece featuring new designers or artists that I'm loving. First up is Blue Bayer. Blue is a self taught artist who works out of his Lower East Side studio in New York. Is it just me or is his work a little reminiscentof Pamela Love? The best part is that a lot of his pieces(depending on the metal) are under $50 or $100 bucks.
