I kind of really ❤ these. Yes. ❤ them. There is no other way to describe it. I just…<3 them. And they have my size. And they are on sale. Hmm…


Even M.I.A. Designs Clothes?

I just found out that the awesome M.I.A. designed some form of clothing that is now sitting in boxes at her mom’s house. Interesting. I can just see all the hipster high school girls in their American Apparel bandeau tops and neon leggings flocking to have a piece of it. I love her music (I went to her concert last week), but really? Why is everyone and their mom/sister/great-aunt/goldfish suddenly designing clothes?! She says she was “inspired” by her recent Marc by Marc Jacobs campaign. So because she has worn MARC and Juergen Teller has taken pictures of her, that makes her a designer? A bit of a stretch, I think. But who knows, maybe she can make awesome clothes as well as awesome beats.

Stuck in my head: pretty much every Beirut song. (because the concert was absolutely life-changing)

“The ‘L.A. Look’ needs to go away forever, please. If they banned fedoras, tacky sunglasses, blazers over T-shirts, leggings and Kitson, Los Angeles would become a nudist colony.” –Elizabeth Spiridakis for Very
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. (sorry SoCal people. It’s just funny.)

On Monday night’s Gossip Girl finale, Serena wore this pretty tiered Ralph Lauren dress. But what I really like are the gloves. I’ve been trying to find a way to wear gloves and not look ridiculous. But she beat me to it. Rawr.
P.S. Georgina loses!!! YES! But I still hate her because she still ruined everything.

“I can’t bear it when designers go on about inspiration … If a girl wants to wear it and feels good then who cares?” –Marc Jacobs (who should have tootally been an answer to the Jeopardy category famous people whose initials are ‘MJ’. gah.)

I guess in the end it’s true, isn’t it? But sometimes it’s fun to have a cool story behind a piece of clothing.
