Kate Moss for Supreme Spring/Summer 2012

I’m sure you’ve all seen the hype already. Kate Moss. Supreme. Yada yada yada.

I’m usually late on all the trending topics…TRENDING…ugh…I hate hipsters…Anyways, this was one topic that has a special place in my heart.

I DIED when I heard this was coming out. Being in Hawaii, I was afraid I would never see the tee itself in the flesh. Even the thought of bidding for one on eBay induced cold sweats late at night while I scoured the internet for clues on when it would be released. I already have THREE tees of her in a multitude of her infamous paparazzi or editorial shots. So I just thought this would make a nice addition to my collection.

Lo and behold, I see a couple of them, in black, grey, and white, on eBay. WAAAAay before the Supreme website even said they were available! So I had no choice but to buy one.

I HAD TO HAVE IT! Thank gawd, for the BUY IT NOW option on eBay.

For the small, itty, bitty price of $ 146 US.

So you can only imagine the girly shout and subsequent dramatic gasps that ensued when I got this in the mail today…

So happy right now. I can’t wait to wear it. Calculating impact of wearability on which day as I type. Get it?

That’s all.


The 35K Croc Backpack

The Row Crocodile Backpack

This beauty is part of the debut collection of bags from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s super-luxe line, The Row. And like the clothes, consisting of high end basics for everyday life, the bags themselves are very minimal. And the bag above retails for $35,000 USD.

At prices like that, I’m sure these bags will remain exclusive and highly sought after. Like Hermes Birkins and Kellys, these are statement bags. They say, “I’m super RICH, deal with it.”

In fashion, over-the-top prices are the norm. So 35k for a backpack is just  another among a sea of like-priced items. Crocodile is notorious for being crazy expensive. They only use the underside of the crocodile, the belly, and only can use the part of the hide that’s unblemished. Then treat it with god-knows how many chemicals to get it super soft, a precise color and gloss. And then cut out the raw pieces of the bag by hand and handsew it all together.

And that’s what goes into the price of the 35k bag.

There’s no point in complaining and wondering why a bag costs so damn much. Get over it. I can’t afford it and I’m sure few can. It’s part of the prestige.

But it won’t stop me from coveting it. It’s so damn beautiful.

Here’s Ashley toting a version of the bag:

It’s not black, it’s a dark ecru. So I’m guessing it’s either an exclusive or a prototype. Gawd, I’m so jealous. GAH!!!!!!

It’s even been criticized on Fashion Police! The show’s one of my many guilty pleasures and I adore Joan Rivers. They dogged on the bag but I love it anyway.

I have to say this though, the bags seem familiar. Basically, they look like bags I’ve seen the girls carry. Particularly Ashley Olsen. She’s been seen carrying this vintage Fendi Croc tote for years.

It’s obvious where they got their inspiration from.

The bag is said to retail for $9,000 USD.

And The Row top handle totes remind me of Prada’s Saffiano totes.

Regardless, the bags are gorgeous and their origins are just as beautiful.

Burberry Prorsum Spring Summer 2011 Gladiators

I loved Burberry Prorsum’s Spring Summer 2011 Collection. The studdedleather jackets, the motorcycle-pant inspired trousers, the down-to-basics colors, but the showstoppers for me were the GLADIATORS.

Yes, others have come out with their own men’s gladiators before. What made these special?

They were perfect. In my opinion, they were the perfect balance of classic gladiators, masculinity, utility, and fashion. They weren’t girly. I don’t have a problem with ‘girly’ things, but these didn’t make me feel too gay, is what I’m saying. As a homo, I can say there is a thing as being too gay.

Anyway, I thought these were cute on the runway and stored that information in the back of my mind until recently. Fast-forward to now, these babies are SOLD OUT in stores everywhere. Too bad, I want them like CRAZY. I would do anything for a pair that fits perfectly. I want no other gladiators. I won’t settle for anything less. They have a shorter version of these floating around but they just don’t cut it.

They retailed for approx. $700 USD. They probably go for some absurd amount on eBay. Wait, don’t go there on the chance they’re for sale. THEY’RE MINE!!!!!!

I’m kidding;) I checked and some asshole is pricing them for the ‘Buy It Now’ price of $2,450 USD. STUPID. Btw, they’re a size 7 US.

I can only dream of owning these now. This always happens to me. Let’s hope I find a pair or something just as good. If I do, I’ll buy them first and have the honor of telling you guys about it:)

Hermès Tribu

The above photo is just insane. It’s like an Hermès orgy.

I just die for anything Hermès.

I get this weird sense of awe and shock when I see anything from the brand, whether it’s a Birkin or Kelly held by a rich bitch at the mall or the HIGHLY coveted accessories like the Collier de Chien bracelet that’s owned by any fashionista who can afford the $1025 price tag.

I’ve wanted the bracelet above ever since I discovered who Kate Lanphear was. To those who don’t know, she’s a fashion editor/stylist who contributes to Elle US. She’s fierce. And has one of the most coveted collection of accessories in fashion.

Can you spot the bracelet? See what I mean about the arm candy. SO ENVIOUS.

I can only dream. And dream I will:)


ZOMBIE (boy)

He’s known as Zombie Boy, albeit reluctantly.

“Zombie” was his name as an artist, “Zombie Boy” was coined by some journalist.

Meet Rick Genest aka Rico…

He’s tattooed over 80% of his body, the rest he calls a “work in progress.” I’m curious as to which parts those are;)

He’s appeared on two Mugler shows, Mugler ads, walked alongside Supermodel Jessica Stam, starred in a Lady GaGa music video, and a film with Keanu, some scenes even with the actor.

Like most people I thought his tattoos was paint at first. I mean, can you imagine the amount of pain he’s gone through? All for the sake of his art.

That deserves some respect. I think he’s beautiful.

I LIVE for Jessica Stam. She ain’t fazed by him. She’s a true Supermodel.

These ads for Mugler are sooooo BEYOND.

I think this is the best part of the ‘Born This Way’ video. Lady GaGa met her soulmate.

I’m so into Mugler right now. I want everything from Nicola for Mugler!

I thought Nicola Formichetti was only styling Mugler. I couldn’t believe he was the new Creative Director! AMAZE-BALLS!

Here’s a picture for a shoot he did for East Village Boys, my new favorite blog:

I’m loving this look. From the turtle neck, to the studded jeans, to the thick soled boots. I want it ALL! All by Mugler, of course.

There’s an interview asking about his origins, his career, his art, his instant fame, his relationship with Nicola, and what you can expect from him in the future. Typical interview stuff:)

He’s my newest obsession.

Go here to read it. Pretty interesting stuff.

I’m all for embracing each others’ differences and unique-ness.

Stay educated, people! Ignorance is death.

Polariod Girl aka Kate Moss Tee

Kate Moss is fucking Ah-May-Zing!

Now that we got that out of the way, I don’t have to explain why I’m so desperate to buy this tee from hipster capital aka Urban Outfitters.

At first, I thought, ‘No, it can’t be her.” But then I took a closer look…

IF THAT ISN’T KATE MOSS shoot me in the face right now.

I’m kidding but I think it’s her. So I want it. And it’s only $24. Plus shipping it’s $34 total minus Tax (UO orders to Hawaii are Tax-Free), still cheaper than other tees I’ve bought that have her visage.

Unfortunately, my card isn’t getting authorized by UO. It’s not from lack of funds. I’ve called too but it still didn’t work. Customer service doesn’t know why either. Therefore, no Kate Moss for me. Alas, I’m getting help from my friend so I should be getting it sometime soon.

BTW, this tee is also available on the Deter Clothing online store, black comes in Small to Large and white from Small to XL. Too bad they’re shipping sucks. It’s $28 for the tee by itself on their site, plus $20 in shipping alone to Hawaii. Plus Tax, it comes out to over $50 from ONE tee.

Way too much. So until I can get a friend to buy it for me, no Kate:(
