Suffer for Fashion

My friend, who has been to Coachella five times (sooo….jealous….) was saying that there has been a shift in the audience, with (apparently) lots more neon-ness. London nu rave is finally making its way over here, I guess. Call it the Aggy effect. It’s too bad. A couple years ago I had a period of neon obsession, complete with highlighter yellow sneakers, but I’m not so into it anymore.


Lanvin + Acne?

Alber Elbaz makes jeans? Considering I pretty much worship him and his huge bowties, I’m pretty excited. Too bad it doesn’t come out until next year, and the price point will be on par with the ready-to-wear. My wallet is not going to be happy with me.

People Listen!

After my first and only lengthy discussion about fashion with a few of my friends, one of my friends told me yesterday that she bought a grey top of some collared variety (she wasn’t sure what kind of collar it was, but was sure I would know if I saw it). We had talked about how much I love grey, and the top she bought was probably the only grey article of clothing she owns. It seems that my inexplicable obsession with grey is infectious. Over the course of the year, my roommate has started wearing more and more grey. I would say I’m a trendsetter, but that’s just way too pretentious, so instead I’ll just be happy that I’m not a complete rambling fool. It’s funny how things happen like that. You talk about what you’re excited about, what you’re thinking about, and you don’t know if anyone is going to listen, but you might just end up affecting someone. And besides, grey isn’t a trend, it’s a way of life!

Fringe Benefits

I tried this Phillip Lim dress on in Neiman’s a couple months ago. I LOVE it. Fringe can be so hard to wear, but after trying on this dress, I’ve really been into it. I’m toying with the idea of sewing fringe onto a t-shirt. If only I had a sewing machine in my dorm room. I could make myself a navy blue shirt with black fringe. Mmm. Dark colors. I don’t care if the weather’s getting warm. It makes me want to wear brighter colors, but my real love is still black and navy blues and greys. Ugh I love that dress. If only I had a reason to get it.

Alexander Wang for Uniqlo

I so so so wish I was in New York right now, for one reason. Alexander Wang’s designer collection for Uniqlo is out!!! Alexander Wang is one of my favorite designers. And he’s from the Bay Area! That makes him even more awesome. He even went to a high school whose tennis team I played when I was in high school. I’ve already written about his fall collection, but I can’t say enough good things about his work. I wanted that grey tiger intarsia sweater from the spring collection soooo much. His collections’ color palettes usually consist of grey, black, and white, which I love. Yay dark colors! In any case, I am seriously lusting after his new collection for Uniqlo, and I really don’t know what to do about it. WHY DON’T THEY HAVE UNIQLO IN SAN FRANCISCO?!
