Sushi Chic

NYC based designer Elise Overland showcased her fall 2009 collection this February 14th at the drive-in studios.  I have to ask myself why I haven't posted these earlier.  To be honest I haven't the slightest idea.  Photos with this magnitude of brilliance definitely do not belong sitting in a documents folder.  Therefore I provide you with a bit of daily eye candy for your viewing pleasure :)

I love the amazing array of vibrant colors and textures Elise incorporates into her pieces this season.  All the little details are just as lovely as well, such as the super chic zipper embellishments and pyramid studded leather gloves.  I would kill for the metallic purple lambskin blazer.

"Shimmer" was apparently the shows theme says Overland who was inspired by a cook book about japanese sushi given to her by a friend, Alexander Rower.  Elise was also quoted saying that she was going for, "the sophisticated rock & roll badass princess look"  She most certainly hit it right on the head with that one, don't you think?

Save A Shot For Me


I'm going bananas for the March issue of Vogue UK.  Not only does Lily Davidson grace us with her presence on the front cover but also appears in this incredible twelve page spread. Sorry for the lack of color in such recent posts but apparently I'm really into the black & white look these days.  Not only do I love the contrast between the two polar opposites paired together but I feel like it looks do you say?  Taken from the lovely lyrical workings of Outkast... "so fresh and so clean, clean"  Wow.  I just said that.  Let's get on with the show already, shall we?  Here are a few of my personal favorites picked out from the bunch...

Gimme every single pair of those shoes..puh leazzzeee.  This is so crazy, how could you not adore it?

Thinking About Inking

heart her.

Lately I've been spending the majority of my free time daydreaming about my next tattoo.  I know that there's a large chunk of people out there that are disgusted by tattooing, however, i think of it as a beautiful form of art and self expression.  The idea of getting a feather permanently inked on my body first came from an inspiring latin proverb, allis volat propriis. Translated into english it means...
"she flies with her own wings" 
I find this quote absolutely beautiful & very meaningful to my own life.  To me it symbolizes a sense of independence & strength. Strength to stand out from a crowd and be able to have the confidence to proudly say.."yes, not only am I a unique individual but I am also strong enough to depend on myself.  I don't feel the need to rely on others and I am a leader rather than a follower, i fly with my own wings!"  Initially I planned on getting a bird but I just think it's so common and cliche.  My search began and ended almost simultaneously when I immediately ran into a picture on the web of Erin Wasson in Flair magazine. Oh My Gah.  It was love at first site.  I knew then that a tattoo of a feather definitely had to fit somewhere into my near future. Now my only dilemma seems to be the placement.  I honestly can't decide where I should put it. I'm so confused.  I am loving the behind the ear look but I already have two wrist tattoos and I'm not completely sure if I want another one so plain sight.  This is where you come in.  I need some serious opinions.  The photos below are ones that are currently inspiring me. What do you think?  Be honest, I can take it.

Mac Attack

YES.  I finally got my Macbook Pro over the weekend and I am beyond ecstatic.  I've been playing around with photobooth for hours, I just can't get enough.  I've been lusting after this laptop since it's release date & now it's in the palm of my own hands.  I still haven't taken it all in yet.  I sound like a nerdy little geek and I don't give a damn,  I love electronics.  I'm going to teach myself acoustic guitar with garage band once I get around to actually buying a guitar.  Haha, baby steps.

Yesterday night I went to the theatre with a friend & seen "He's Just Not That Into You" ...soo cute, definately a must see.  I love how Gigi & Alex end up together in the end.  I hope one day I can be someone's exception, rather than the rule.

So how was everyone else's weekend?
