Alexander Mcqueen

Fashion Week will never be the same without Alexander McQueen. His vision was just so amazing and unique. Here are some of my favorite Mcqueen Looks.

love the soft fabric of this dress. I love how its very soft but yet still very artichetural and the leather adds a toughness. I also love the hair and makeup, Abbey's hair is like a vine across her face.

Daily Picks

I'm starting a new thing called Daily Picks, which just are clothing, makeup, books, songs and basically anything that I like or thought was really cool.

Forever 21 sweater- I love this military/ marching band inspired sweater. the details are not too flashy and is not that hard to pull off but is still super trendy. http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog_name=FOREVER21&category_name=promo_nautical&product_id=2071914543&Page=1#

I am really suprise Hollister and Abercrombie have been becoming alot more fashionable and trendy. I love this vest. The color of the sequins are not to over powerful and tacky.

Song Pick is Halloween by Meg&Dia. I actually heard a cover of this song on youtube by amy colalella. This is such a beautiful song written about Megan's friends feelings after her friend that passed away on Halloween day.

Filippa Hamilton

I was absolutely amazed when I saw this ad for Ralph Lauren. Ralph Lauren always stood for classic americana. It was a brand that was easy to wear and had the ability to make women feel good about themselves. I was so surprised that they would even think of releasing such a ridiculous ad. First of all Filippa Hamilton is a gorgeous women with the perfect body, there was no need to Photoshop her dramatically at all. If your going to photoshop someone at least have a decency to do a good job. This ad is hideous, her head is larger than size of her hips ! I'm disappointed that Ralph would allow such a ad and even release it. The worst of all is Filippa Hamilton revealed that she had been fired for being to large. This girl is 5 10" and 120 pounds, how is that to large in any sense ? She even admitted her self that she did fit into the clothes, maybe not as perfectly as Ralph Lauren wanted it. Poor girl, she has been with Ralph Lauren since she was 15, now 23. In an interview with the Today Show, Filippa Hamilton said that she felt betrayed because she felt Ralph Lauren was her second family. Best wishes to Filippa Hamilton, she is a beautiful model, and I hope others of the industry realize that.

Polka Dot Tights Continued......

So my lovely dad decided to take me shopping at my local mall, which is completely useless because the two only decent stores are Gap and American Eagle. So while browsing American Eagle for some basics , I came upon the swiss dot tights, that I have been searching online for. They were 12 dollars, which isn't bad since online I been seeing around 8-13 euros. So I decided to buy them along with the cutest dress, which I will do an outfit post later.
