Sighhh, Christophe Decarnin..

I'm still obsessed with Balmain A/W 2009.

When he speaks of tulle, I start drooling thinking about Sunday morning, picking up Rodarte for Target. I. Cannot. Wait.

My boot addiction continues.

These boots make me think of Emmanuelle Alt for some reason, maybe the toe shape/(faux)suede? I just don't know if I like black or brown better..., $30.80

And these aahhhhhbvious Balmain knock-offs are highly desirable to me..but I wish they were suede., $79.99

Why does Bebe keep putting out sick shoes? It's embarassing to like something from Bebe.

Plaid flannel.

Lately, strangely, I've been craving a plaid flannel cape. Capes, in general, have seemed enticing to me..must be the change in seasons. I've yet to wear my black fleece AA cape, but I'm working up the courage. I'd like to find a plaid sheet or something at a thrift store and fashion it into a cape. My sewing machine lies dormant in the corner of my tiny, tiny apartment, but we're warming to each other..

A confession.

I was perplexed by those infamous Balenciaga harness boots upon their unveiling back in 2006. I thought they were hideous, but Mary-Kate rocked the shit out of them, and I thought..'maybe they ARE cool'. Then the Sam Edelmans were available from Victoria's Secret. I considered purchasing, but thought they'd never get the wear they deserved, I wouldn't wear them nearly enough to justify buying. Then they weren't available, and I kicked myself repeatedly (you always want what you can't have?). Buzz on the blogosphere this season was that the Sam Edelman 'Zoe' boots were put back into production and would be available from select sites. I waited, checked sites, waited, waited. Found. Urban Outfitters. And just in time, because when Geri posted this picture, I almost died. I might be getting the boots for Christmas... :)

Just to let you know.

I've already posted this on facebook, having stolen it from my best friend's facebook, but no mag piece has ever made me happier (that's probably incorrect, but still). I started knitting these last winter. I died when Chris Bailey sent them down the Burberry runway. I love that they're catching on, but I really hate the term "infinity scarf"...reminds me of the one MK Olsen picked up at Intuition or somewhere tacky in LA all those years ago when she paraded around NYU looking homeless. I'm not knocking that. It was one of my favorites of her fashion phases. However, that one isolated scarf bears no relation to the snood/cowl I am currently infatuated by.

Artistic inspiration.

I will totally be attempting white skinnies/brown Fryes.

I think part of the reason I love Freja so much is because I feel like you could photoshop her head out, swap it for Alison Mosshart's, in any candid pic of her, and it would work. That's NOT a bad thing.

Once I'm done knitting projects for the ones I love, I WILL be making myself this hat.

I just fell for Kate Moss all over again.

Crisis averted.

So I've had this black fleece cape from American Apparel, and not a damn clue how to wear it or what to do with it..without looking like some kind of wannabe-superhero. Thank you, Natalie Portman, for figuring it out first.

I might have a Chanel problem..

Fresh ink..

Halloween decor on my porch..

Aaaand some new art in my apartment..

(and a little YSL for good measure..)

Oh..and at a baby shower last week, they had diy onesies, so, naturally..

Glorious weekend.

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing "Valentino: The Last Emperor", "The September Issue", and "Coco Avant Chanel". Happy as a clam, I am. And I've never been more motivated to hone my [relatively non-existent] sewing skills..


There are two reasons I love this photo.

1. This is clearly Emmanuelle Alt + spawn.
2. Babygirl kissing momma's hand? Sweetest gesture everrrr.

Those magazine broads.

Giovanna Battaglia. That COAT. Ugh, love.

Ahh, Lanphear.

I knew those jeans/boots were Emmanuelle Alt without even reading the caption.
