do you double denim?

been seeing it all over the place. loves it! looks fresh which is an amazing feat since it's june and all.. though it has been raining like eh-va-ry day. so maybe it was function as much as fashion.

anyway, check his:

fun nerd glasses

varying shades of denim (kind of essential to pulling this off)

slight cuff to the jean

perfect on everyone canvas shoes... which may even be a light blue... hmmm.. lemme put on my glasses...
either way, flashing back to 6th grade and my raging keds obsession.

once again i've been harassing strangers at my subway stop.. but-what can i say? bed-stuys gentrified yo...

i dont have an it bag....

but if i did- this chloe black leath-ah, worn by bluefly model elyse, would more than totally suffice. yup sure would...

so i felt like a snark-monster from the last post so i'm putting this up to make amends. but the sometimes and the nevers are the realities of always/sometimes/never ya know? anyways...

doesn't everyone look smashing in their white tees and jeans? i love how they each, using basically the same outfit ingredients, are entirely unique and look 100% themselves. sidenote: why are both the fellas holdin' a drank?

white tee shirts + jeans= always classic
whether you want to go retro classic workman, laid back garconne chic, or cool urban ..uhhh.. guy.

animal print: one's doing it right, one's doing it wrong. granted, it's not a fair fight...

i love expressing my inner feline as much as the next gal but i have to put leopard (and it's other jungle friends) firmly in the sometimes lane. lest you think im body snarking on the civilian, heiny-hatred would = self-hatred round these parts so that's not it. my problem lies with the cheap faux fur, weird crop length of the pants, and boots with said crop. hey at least nobody (except my mom) is still worried about the whole no white before memorial day thing right? speaking of, i'm so looking forward to this much needed long weekend.


the rest of the story...

so as i mentioned.. i went to my pal alison's house, not only for the champagne and two bite brownies, but mainly to ogle the clothes (that she designed) at her trunk show.

her very charming apartment has a similar aesthetic to her clothing: whimsical and dreamy yet sophisticated. the sale was open to a select grouping of clientele, most of whom either modeled in her fall presentation or styled it (moi).

and of course she had plenty of cute friends for me to harass for pics:

all in all, i learned about knockout nail polish, ate chocolate, and made some new friends. now if i could just figure out how to put pictures "after the jump" so these posts wouldn't be so long...



so blogging is hard work yall.. to post not only timely, relevant content but also in a visually appealing manner is def quite the challenge. more posts to come-promise! oh, the lil' deer above is from designer alison lewis's super cute apt. i recently went to her trunk show and snapped pics of her and her cute friends so i can't wait to share that with you.


call me crazy but...

kinda right? c'mon, squint your eyes a little. i think this may be her best angle. posh that is, adriana doesn't have a bad one.
