I Want LANVIN, not diamonds!

Sick sick sick!!!

I just think this video of Lanvin’s collection for H&M is so cute and funny.  Natasha Poly is so major. The whole schtick about wanting Lanvin, not diamonds or flowers is genius. Fashion should be fun, not so serious. I love how it’s so Lanvin:) That’s the most important thing. Fashion houses should stay true to their vision. And Alber Elbaz is all about consistency.

I just wish the jewelry were chunkier like these earrings and necklace:

I was also expecting them to do a piece like this necklace:

I don’t think the pieces shown in the video were exclusive to Lanvin, the whole pearl and chandelier motif is just too common. But I do know Lanvin has done pieces like them in the past. That was my only criticism.

Too bad we don’t have an H&M in Hawaii yet:(

Or else I would be looking for a necklace like this one in the store once the collection came out:

This necklace just makes me happy:)

On another note, I’m so sorry I haven’t been posting any new posts. School has just become so time consuming with mid-terms and final projects.

Here’s what I’ve been working on:

It’s not finished yet and it’s late. More pictures once I’m done:) Hope I can still get an A if I get extra credit.

Obsessions #1

Here are my current obsessions that I just can’t get out of my head.

Guess what they are? I’ll give someone a cupcake if they guess them right. I tried to make it really obvious.

I have tons more obsessions but these are the ones that popped into my head.

Hello Again…

It’s been too long since my last post.  I just felt like I didn’t have anything to offer the fashion blog universe (my term for the millions of fashion blogs that pop up every second).After a long hiatus, I feel like blogging again because my brain can’t contain all my crazy obsessions, wants, music finds, and, of course, fashion happenings that blew my mind while I was away from my precious blog.

So here’s what has happened in my life and in the fashion world while I was “away” from this blog of mine:

– SAILOR STRIPES

Yes, I sported horizontal stripes in recent months. Considering I’m not stick thin, I found a way to rock this look. I predict this trend will peter out pretty fast but it still won’t stop me from wanting a black and white striped cardigan.

– Military Green

It’s everywhere. Military green, I mean. Not Kim Kardashion, though some may argue that she is in fact ‘everywhere.’ Look at the military green Hermes Birkin. Bag envy big time! I’m green with it. Get it. HA!

*Note: Beiges, Khakis, Camel, anything neutral is in right now.

– Sweat Pant Chic

I WANT THESE! They’re Balmain Homme sweatpants. Approx. $600US. A quarter of the price of their jeans. Sweatpants are like man leggings. Worn over boots as seen above, so fresh. Talking about leggings, here are the new versions….

– Jeggings

Yes, those are jeggings. They look like the real thing right? Amazing. Wish they made them for guys…but the man bulge could be a problem. Told you military green was everywhere. Love the model’s hair…love her whole look actually.

– The Hair Cut

I’m not gonna lie. Rihanna was my hair inspiration. This is what my hairstylist friend came up with. I love how it came out, but I can love it a lil more. I’m going in soon to get the blond to white blond like the right pic of Rihanna.

–  Kate Lanphear for Eddie Borgo Jewelry

I DIED! I love this woman. Kate Lanphear is a style icon. Finally someone saw her as more than street fashion blog fodder. Now she’s the face of Eddie Borgo Jewelry. Her signature ultra white blond hair is perfect for this shoot. I wonder if she styled it too. Stacking bracelets on her arms is also one of her signatures. Look for her name in Elle US fashion editorial credits, and see what she can do. See more here.

– Pierre Hardy Colorama Graff Sneakers

The instant I saw these babies I WANTED them. They were made for the Autumn Winter 2010 collection. Alas, my budget for designer sneaker shopping is nonexistent.  And believe me, my heart is breaking. There are so many I want to get out there. Shoe post to come soooooooon.

– Rolex Air-King

The Air King is my favorite model of Rolex watches. It definitely looks like a Rolex and has the appropriate price tag, but it’s less flashy and more timeless. Leave the jubilee wristband for the old-timers. I first saw the Air King on Hypebeast, see here. If only the watch above didn’t have the bold numbers…I like the look of the one seen on Hypebeast better.

And…..

Can I just say I resent the fact that every wanna-be fashionista out there is grabbing up Alexander McQueen pieces left and right. If I see one more skull scarf on a fashion blog I might lose my shit!

Love all the people that took a peak at my blog while I was away.

That’s all for now.
Frankly, I’m tired of uploading stuff, blogging is hard work.

Here’s a quote from Tom Ford:
“From the time we’re born until we die, we’re kept busy with artificial stuff that isn’t important.”

So true…but so depressing at the same time. And that’s why boys like Sebastian exist. LOL!

Bye for now.
