J. Crew Fall 2011

J. Crew's Fall 2011 lookbook has been unveiled for the chic masses! It's another hit with dramatic lengths and great combinations of bold and neutral hues (love bolds + neutrals). Pieces to die for include the cranberry wide leg trousers, teal trench, and that great red-orange zip-top tote. The menswear line is wonderful as always as well, including some as per-usual perfect plaid collared shirts and jackets-a-plenty to make any man look nice and tailor-made. Drool on my friends.

Not Your Grandmother's Loafers

Hello! Sorry for my hiatus! The dreadful quarter for Winter 2011 has finished and I have completely recovered through spring break! I make the great two-hour trek (jokes) back to Atlanta tomorrow to gear up for Spring 2011! I'm taking two more tough classes (Production Design and Web Design) so we'll see how it goes. This quarter, I'll try more to be on top of my blogging game!

I came across these insane but kind of whimsical needlepoint loafers on the internet, obviously. For two decades, By Paige has been cranking out some ridiculous footwear to call attention to your lower digits. We all have an inner grandpa/grandma, so unleash him/her!

These loafers will set you back about $150, but you can save them till that time you're at Chick-fil-a at 7 in the morning with your pals (the elderly congregate at Chick-fil-a that early where I'm from) and playing insane amounts of golf or shuffleboard! I always like a good investment.

McQueen at The MET

Sorry I've been so vacant from the blogosphere. This quarter's been crazy and I've been working on a movie book project protraying The Fantastic Mr. Fox typographically. It's been challenging nonetheless, and I've been struggling, considering it's not at all where I want it. I just need to carry on and make it work! (Tim Gunn is apparently resonating in my thoughts)

Today, I read through my reader subscriptions and came across something quite lovely. From May 4th through July 31st of this year, the MET will be hosting a retrospective of sorts of the late Alexander McQueen. 100 pieces of his work from 1992-2010 will be displayed.

I'm going to New York sometime this year, and hopefully it'll be in that time frame! Nothing would make that trip more memorable than seeing McQueen's pieces in person. Just thinking about seeing the armadillo shoes up close makes my heart skip a beat!

This way for more information.

I'll be back in full swing once this next week is over. Till then readers!
