Black cat socks!


Mm, I love my new socks!  Getting compliments galore already.  The purrrrfect way to brighten up my day 🙂

(Look for them at


Proenza Schouler

I’m not sure what’s up with the “pre-fall release” mumbo jumbo, but I absolutely love this new dress coming from Proenza Schouler some time soon.  It’s the perfect combination of secretary-ness and hotness.  I found it on the Fashion Gone Rogue site, go see the rest of the collection here.


Halloween & Oni-con

Well I have to let you all know that Halloween weekend was a blast.  My boyfriend Sam and I drove from Missouri to Houston, Texas so that he could DJ at an anime convention which is held there every fall.  That convention was called Oni-con, in case you haven’t figured that out yet… Here are some pictures of Samuel Benjamin cuttin it up for the anime raver kids:

We were fortunate to have 2 wonderful hosts who took us to an awesome Mexican restaurant called Cha-cho’s (I think I’m spelling it right..) which was heavenly.  The portions were generous, the flavors were perfect, and it was super cheap (except for the drinks, which were normal priced).  I have never had a more delicious cheese quesadilla with avocado in my entire life.  And just so you know, I had eaten 3 (count em, 3!) of those avocado quesadillas before we left, and we were only there for 4 days…  Oh and we also got fish tacos which were super tasty as well.  Just try not to drool on your keyboard too much when you look at these pictures  😉

Oh yeah, and I dressed up as Daria for Halloween.  Well, for part of the weekend I was Daria.  Most of the time I was a fox, rockin the Spirit Hood.  You’ll notice that Sam was wearing his bear hood as well.  Grrrrrrr


McQueen by Burton

The Spring 2011 Ready to Wear line for fashion house Alexander McQueen is a fantastic tribute to the art of fashion design, in my opinion.  The pieces are stunning in their attention to detail and outright beauty.  The entire line is like a walking/wearable fairy tale.  Burton does an excellent job of continuting the good name of Mr. McQueen, may he rest in peace.

And now, the clothes:

See what I mean?  And just look at those shoes!  Amazing!  Here is a closer look for ya:

All photos (except the last one) were taken from, and you can find the link to the review of the McQueen line  here.  The last photo was found on this blog which is the property of Ms. Spiridakis.  Check it out, she’s pretty awesome.


‘speak without words’

I have just discovered Canadian designer ErinAlexandraKlym (via and ohhhhhhhh man am I impressed!  Her pieces are beautiful and innovative and perfect for the coming fall season.  The Cat’s Cradle Dress is my favorite, I think.  But it is so hard to decide!  Which one is your favorite?

Here is the link to her Etsy page ::link::    Enjoy!


Meadham Kirchoff Spring 2011

Have you seen the clothes coming out of London these days??  Awesome stuff.  This is the Spring 2011 line from design team Meadham Kirchoff, and I want all of it.  Pretty please with whipped cream and cherries on top.  Lots of cherries. 

You can read the review from here.  Apparently, all of those lovely holes were not laser cut, but cut by hand.  This line is absolutely beautiful.  Plus, look at that hair!  Awesome!  Ok, enough of me babbling about it, here are some more pictures  🙂


Go Gaga!

I did not know this, but apparently Lady Gaga is the shit.  Seriously.  I just read an article about how she had a rally in Maine to support the repeal of discriminating “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” legislation. 

I mean, she is still a crazy lady, but now I know she is also a kick-ass person.
