Good afternoon fellow fashion fiends,
The past few days,those of you who
know me personally, have heard I’ve been jonesing for some serious sunshine.Thus, I’ve been lust-dreaming for the March-April-May months.Spring time brings all things great, cute baby animals, MY BIRTHDAY(March 4th,I accept cash and Jimmy Choo), and PATTERN PATTERN PATTERN.While I do love me some winter carlisle, nothing makes my mood shine like some bold colors,ridiculous shapes, and major designs. suffer greatly
So here they are babes, my fav ten looks for SPRING11
1.Carven (Madame Carven you beautiful slut, my gratitude for your art is never ending)
This baby’s got night’n-day written all over it, and I would rock this through an entire celestial rotation.Who doesn’t love a good pair of hearing-heels?You say bow, I say orejas.
(Dont know spanish? Google translate that shit.)
2.Anna Sui (As in, “G, do you spend more time drooling over hemlines and hairbands then history homework?” Sui, Sui.)
A little background on yours truly: It’s said my mommy’s mommy and her mommy and the mommy before hers and all that mommy’s family were some really bad ass Basque(The Basques (Basque: euskaldunak, Spanish: vascos, French: basques) as anethnic group primarily inhabit an area traditionally known as the Basque Country(Basque: Euskal Herria), a region that is located around the western end of thePyrenees on the coast of the Bay of Biscay and straddles parts of north-central Spain and south-western France) gypsies.Which explains two things, my striking Pyrenees facial features(HA), and my love for all things whimsy, wispy,see-through, and gold(that shits gypsy, right?). Anna Sui’s Spring 11 RTW line is the embodiment of all these and more. Seriously, hit the nail on the head. From the sandal wedges,to maxi-quilt skirts and peasant tops to the feather detailing, its all to die for. I juggled between featuring this look and one of her minis(personal fav style for any time of year), but the little gypsy-queen in me won over.
Okay, lets just get something straight. My family and dearest friends aside, I love Chanel more than every single person or thing on this entire planet.Chanel is legitimately my all-time favorite brand, and I know about a million girls and girly men out there are saying the same thang, but it’s well deserved.
Also,Karl Lagerfeld is the most attractive 80 year old man to ever exist.(He’s not actually 80.)
Noted, Karolina Kurkova kind of has the best legs ever, but even those of us not blessed with great gams would easily win best dressed anywhere-anywhore-anytime adorned in these ultra-short short short’s,(so much short!), draping neckwear,and ultra-fresh
fresh fresh’s Chanel-esque suit pattern.Im seriously having a border-line meltdown right now.
If I could just walk in her peep-toe ankle booties for one day….
Side-note: I kind of have a thing for not wearing pants. Don’t expect those things to end up here very often.If I could wear a sequin-covered boyfriend blazer, a black bodysuit, and Madden platforms all day every day, I would.
4.Dolce and Gabbana
I know, I know what I said about color and spring and yada yada.
But cooooomeee ON are you seeing this madness right now?The jacket, dress, bag, and shoes are all flawless.
Perfect TEN for spring.
I know what you think.
You think that putting Miss Pivovarova in anything(including a jamaican ruck sack) will make me love it.
I legitimately love this particular ruck sack,It’d be perfect for beach bumming in Bali,Freedom Riding( SHOUT OUT TO MY BEND-ITES), or even a good pizza-beer night with the buds. Don’t matter to me, fab is fab anywhere.
The designers for Rodarte,Kate and Laura Mulleavy, got sunshine in mind with this gold-warrior mini.This girl is so ready to battle off the winter time.
This look by far is the mellowest in a line full of carnival colors, check-marked tights and heart blouses(literally.) Westwood is the baddest when it comes to over-the-top glam(which I love about her). But this 70’s inspired mini, in its gorge-simplicity took my breath away.Exposed shoulders, light edges around the knees. Perf.
Guys, Morticia Addams needs a spring wardrobe to. Posen, being the sweetie pie he is, was happy to oblige.
This look is head to floor drama.From the feather shoulder pads to the ruching at the thigh.
Let’s give Coco Rocha a little round of applause for being totally stunning always while we’re at it.
(And yes, I know, I have multiple-style-personality-disorder, but great is great, and variety is the spice of life.)
Karen Bonser, Topshop’s head of design(for pieces that really make the men hop on outta yo bed, topshop.com. Also happens to be one of my most visited sites) somehow managed to bring the seventies, eighties, and a patriotic motorcylce gang all together to one big(mini) party of an outfit.
Do I really need to say more? BANANAS for christs sake.
I thought I would finish up with a not so springy-look, and show you couture clowns what my winter-wardrobe would be in my own personal Utopia.(Seeing as winter’s here for like another bajillion years, might as well dream per-season.)
Black and white bustier-body suit,matching jacket, and chacos.Ahhh, heaven.
But that’s all for now babies, if you need me, ill be the one in the fur and short-short’s doing a sundance in the middle of campus.
(Spring, I’m ready for you bitch,so HURRY THE EFF UP).
Kudos/props/cred to wikipedia for the fab article on us basque-ites,style.com for the pictures, and hugs to Layna-bug for helping me edit my shit.
(Minus the bottom image, you can thank photo booth and my hot legs for that one.)
