the whole world's gone off the wall

it's been five months since the king of pop left us.
i think this calls for some serious eye candy.

R.I.P P.Y.T.
we love you.

ooh la la.

yes, chanel no. 5 may remind many youngins of their seventy year old grandmother, wrapped in countless layers of pearls and fingers coated with diamonds, but its new covergirl may give it the fresh, modern splash it's in desperate need of.
classic perfume meets classic beauty, audrey tautou.
she's delightful, no?

psychedelic furs.

and so, fall begins! tis the season for scarves, coloured skies, pumpkin pies, bobbing for apples, and, let us never forget,...FUR!
along with thakoon, karl lagerfeld, and other various fashion gurus, fur coats, vests, and shalls have topped my autumn 2009 "must purchase" list---just as long as i can find one that doesn't limit me from pursuing further college education.

i apologize if i've offended any dedicated PETA followers, but these beauties were just too lovely to ignore. if you're going to splash your fair trade coffee at any part of me, please just aim somewhere other than the coat, for the love of God and all mankind.
regardless, i have one message for both PETA and non-PETA supporters:
don't freeze to death this autumn and winter- buy some fabulous (faux) fur!

and have a great week.

who is it?

first and foremost, i'd like to take this chance to apologize for the nearly two month long break from blogging.
with many new turns of events occuring in my life lately (ie: family matters, an overload of work shifts, an internet connection at home made primarily of horse manure, & michael jackson's "death"- i'm still not convinced, by the way), i haven't been able to keep up my end of the blogspot bargain: updates! so, my fellow dedicated followers of fashion, i'm at last...getting around to it.
oh, in the list above, i should've added one more contributing factor to my recent neglectful ways: my beloved camera finally croaked. well, i guess the word "beloved" is a slight exaggeration; i hated the thing. it was an obnoxious pink brick. good thing christmas is only.... 4 months away? "Mommy..."
lately, i've taken a liking to simple, yet both structured and airy pieces. take loose fitted t-shirts paired with a shoulder padded blazer, black leggings, and a sharp pair of platform cut-outs for example. the loose tee gives the look a playful, casual feel, yet the entire look is pulled together thanks to the structured jacket and platforms. as soon as i purchase a new camera, i'll be sure to post a picture of my new 'look'.
some random inspirational pictures i recently came across:

a pair of neoprene pencil skirts, by combhard. their geometric look proves that fashion is art, no? they have somewhat of an architectural feel, and i absolutely adore them.

not much of an update, i know. don't fret, though! an outfit post is just around the corner.

it is time for my beauty sleep, loves. endless steamy dreams starring karl lagerfeld await!

to all a good night.

a lil bit uh this, a lil bit uh that.

nice! another week flown by without any outfit posts! sorry, dears, but i've been a busy girl. who can say 'no' to a whole lot of random inspirations, though? not me.

fashion fiction? superheros? iggy pop, lucious boots, AND andy warhol polaroids? this post has 'inspiration' scribbled all ova its face!

she sends shivers down my spine.

this week has been filled with an overload of work shifts, parties, and cigarettes. unfortunately, there's been about zero time for outfit posts. don't fret, though! a frenzy of fashion photography is on its way for all your darling pupils!

a fresh start.

yes, i did delete my last blog "fashion frenzy gets me higher & higher". i'd like to think of that one as my practice round; it was my first blog and now that i have a blogging history, i'm expecting this one to be even better.

for instance, i'm going to post more outfit updates on this blog. i'm getting a new camera soon, so i'll get to put it to good use.
what better time to start than now?
my recent lookbook addition:

Vogue Paris May 2009:

i'm heading to chicago next week so watch out for lots of outfit posts!
have a spectacular week, darlings.
