Alexander McQueen

I’m kicking myself for foolishly waiting until this weekend to see “Savage Beauty” at the Met, and now I’m pretty sure I’m not going to swing it—five-hour+ lines yesterday, and it’s rainy. And I have a head cold.

As an insufficient consolation, I’ve been dreamily looking around at the various photos I’ve got tagged around the web.

Did you see the show?

“[Though cutting, I try] to draw attention to our unrelenting desire for perfection. The body parts that I focus on change depending on the inspirations and references for the collection and what silhouettes they demand.”

Resort 2012


on the outnet

Vera Wang Lavender Bow Embellished Dress, $118 (Meet the Parents)

The Outnet not only has a great selection of massively discounted designer clothing and accessories, but their site is so cheeky and fun.  I love their DRESS ME feature – offers up pieces by important events, from first date frocks and bridesmaid dresses to weekend-in-the-country wardrobes and going-freelance workwear.

DAY Birger et Mikkelson Waistcoat, $240 (Fashion Trend: Embellish Me)

Philosophy by Alberta di Ferretti Tweed Ballerina Flats, $132 (Board Meeting)

Isharya Aster Filigree Necklace, $115

will you die?

Rachel Zoe is coming out with her own GOOP, called The Zoe Report.  Should be interesting.  It’s going to be hard to beat Gwynnie’s vegan recipes and spiritual advice, but I bet RZ has some goodies up her sleeve.

Anchors Aweigh

This past Saturday night I nerded out and watched this old Frank Sinatra/Gene Kelly movie, Anchors Aweigh.  (And if staying home on a Saturday night isn’t nerdy, then taking photos of your TV screen certainly is!)

It was great to see the cute boys, great fashion (fuzzy mohair with matching headbands and berets) and long-lost romance and dancing.  Swoon!

spectacular vintage

Decades of Style, found via Ready Made is AMAZING!  Besides the awesome vintage styles, you’ll dig up some long-lost shapes that would be so fun to bring back, like this 1920s ruffly cocoon Cloud Cape, the 1930s Sweetheart Overalls, or the 1940s Empire Waist Trousers.  Sublime!
