Zac Posen encourages you to get out and vote (in an awesome outfit, no less). This is the best thing I’ve seen all morning (ok, so I guess this is basically the first thing I’ve seen this morning, but whatever).

Stuck in my head: Signs by Bloc Party.

A New Project!

So, when I became interested in fashion oh-so-long ago, I pretty much assumed my new obsession and the resulting huge amounts of knowledge I obtained over the years would be pretty much incredibly useless. But it might just come in handy this year (and beyond?)! I’m super super super excited to announce that I’m embarking on a new, amazing project! I found out this morning (when I was rudely awoken 5 am, but that’s another story) that I am one of two head coordinator interns for Stanford’s Charity Fashion Show! The funny thing about Charity Fashion Show this year is that it will be the biggest fashion show on the west coast! How awesome is that?? This is because 1) SF fashion week died, 2) LA fashion week is kind of going down the tubes, and 3) we’re upping the scale of our show a LOT, complete with 1,000 person tent, 70 ft runway, etc. etc.

So basically, my job will be to help the two amazing head coordinators organize the entire thing, with an emphasis on the production side of the show (the other head intern is focusing on the enterprise aspect). This means I will be doing a lot of incredibly different tasks, things like helping with photoshoots, calling designers to convince them to send us samples, all the way down to those normal intern tasks like taking polaroids and packing and returning samples. I’M SO EXCITED. And, guess what, I will keep you posted about it the entire time, so you can share the magic, because I fully intend to mine this incredible experience for all its worth! Hahaha YAY! So get excited and get ready to hear about Charity Fashion Show EVERYWHERE soon, because it’s going to be HUGE.

And Next Year’s Theme Is…

Looks like the Met just announced the theme of next year’s Costume Institute Gala: “The Model as Muse.” The exhibit will be open from May 4th- Aug. 9th. Looks like we’ll be seeing a whole lot of models on the red carpet at the Gala. Oh, and guess what, Marc Jacobs is honorary chair! Wonder if he’ll wear a skirt or heels…

It’s the Citizens Band, in all their crazy ridiculous freakshow glory! I want to join a troupe of insane musician-performers, toooo. So much better than doing problem sets about production functions.

Yesterday I wore my ridiculously shredded (as in, they look like I passed them through a paper shredder) jeans, and I kind of wanted to giggle maniacally the entire day from the sheer ridiculousness of it. They were just so much fun! They felt kind of like shag rugs for my legs! Am I a total freak for wearing something that I could so easily imagine on one of those “don’t wear this or you will be shunnnneeeddd” pages where they black out your eyes because your outfit is so embarrassing? OF COURSE I AM. HAAAH.

Grey Preen. Because I love grey (if that wasn’t already patently obvious), I love how amazingly comfortable and drapey it looks, and did I mention I love the grey?
