Tavi...In a Bike

A gratitious post today, even though I'm still sick and hacking away at the stuff in my lungs:
How cool is that?  I'm pretty sure my parents would have never let me do that when I was smaller. Our bikes didn't even have baskets attached to them.  It's great that Tavi Gevinson is getting positive attention.

P.S.Go Tavi for rocking that hat/bow at the Dior show!  If someone gives you a present, APPRECIATE it.

Buenas noche todos!

Design Mish Mash

I love design blogs.  Photography, art, fashion, paper goods, furniture, the works.  Unfortunately, I don't get to see a lot of blogs that reflect my aesthetics.  However, sites like Etsy and Shiny Squirrel do:

Such a cool video!  Also on The Clothes Horse.

Amazing, both the dress and the photography.

 Such a pretty print.
There!  I've been sick for a while, so it's mostly images from other blogs for now.  When I feel better (and have more time), I'll rant about my life again.  Until then, enjoy!

Zac Posen for Target

  Dang, Target.  You're on a roll this year.  With all these limited edition collections, you'd think Tasrget was moving up-scale.  Then you hear about a temporary plan to make Target stores more like Costco, cutting higher-end merchandise and introducing more necessary items like towels and packaged food.  Why?  Cool stuff for cheap is also a neccesity in this economy.  Anyway, they did a good job on the winter Rodarte collection, and I'm expecting similar quality (or at least good designs) for the Zac Posen for Target collection.  When I saw the lookbook on, I was not dissapointed (yet).  It's more colorful and ready for summer, and gives me a chilling-on-the-beach-in July vibe.

I love that dress.  I've been wanting a denim-look dress for a while, and that looks so slouchy and casual.  The belt is interesting too.

The raincoat is an unique addition.  I like the lines of the coat, and the contrast with the black skirt.
Will anyone be looking forward to this collection?

Heavy Machine: Woah!

I don't really like to obsess about shoes, because most of them are really expensive/ not practical to walk around in, but occasionally I do understand when people do.  And I have.  Right now, it's HEAVY MACHINE, after I found it on Style Bubble:

If I could run walk in high heels, this would be awesome.  How amazing are these shoes?  Cool design, funky shape, a standout.  End of shoe obsession rant.

Inspiration + Infatuation

I was busy with sickness and school the past few days, and I was feeling a bit uninspired on what to blog about.  In an act of desperation, I turned to some wonderful blogs and photos.  On style rookie, The Clothes Horse, and Fashion Pirates I realized they had all posted on inspiration.  Such as, what is inspiration?  How does something influence you or inspire you?  Something that influences me:

from UK Yahoo
Sherlock Holmes.  Victorian England, dapper gentlemen, practical yet elegant clothing/accessories.  A modern touch on a classic in the movie, with fighting and skilled manuevers.

 Turns into this:  My Christmas present for myself.  I bought the face form Magnoliasupplie on Etsy, and used the chain to match it.  I wore it to see the movie!
Some more influence, this time from Teen Vogue:

from Teen Vogue
The name of that slide show said it all: Rebel Chic Fashion.  Edgy, clean, but colorful.  Everything is expensive though.

from FRUiTS magazine
What can I say?  I like street style.  I very much enjoy seeing non-models pull off what they want to wear.  I like color, especially since it is so foggy here.  I like contrasting elements too.
Overall, I'm not sure whether is is influence, inspiration, or just interesting to look at (but for your information, my bet's on all three!) but it's fun looking at culture + fashion.  I needed a break!  What do you think about this?
