Kalle Gustafsson

I truly apologize for the lack of dialogue. I started grad school today and my schedule runs from 8am-5pm everyday. Thus, I'll only have time to update with pictures while comments made by me will be a rarity. Please still enjoy the pictures that I'll be uploading daily. Have a wonderful week :)

Peter Lindbergh

An unexpected, sudden rush of color.

Tanya Dziahileva

She looks absolutely better with her locks let loose. Hair helps frame her petite face and provides a curtain of concealment for her jutting mini-ears. It also helps soften her intensiveness that she loves to flounce while on the runway. 

Why try to portray glamor bitch when you're not one. 

Cavalli knocks off Wang

Either Roberto Cavalli was feeling brave one day or Vera Wang is his bosom buddy. Blatantly screaming "knock-off," Cavalli's snake-themed jewelry is a heavy reminder of Vera's demure looking snakes that hissed their way down the catwalk this fall. However, I don't think Cavalli was successful in emanating opulence with his reptilian friends from the dry deserts of nowhere. 

The real deal.

Anna Kuznetsova

I love black + white.

These photos remind me of my two week stay in Greece and Turkey. Dodging people, aggressive drivers, and zipping scooters on streets dirty with the trash of neglect and taking in the blaring sounds of locals touting their wares was thrilling. Being in the hustle bustle of a city life different from the plastic cities of America was truly eye-opening and I could say nose-opening as well. It was my first real experience away from home and I'm proud to say that I came back seeing, hearing, and smelling new things. I complained about the heat and the constant walking we had to do but now I look back with nostalgia and appreciation of things foreign.

Erin Petson

Her work described as "bondage leaning glam-vintage", Erin Petson maintains mystery through her power stating, provocative images. I don't know much about art but I like the smudged sexiness of her drawings.

Su Blackwell

Don't you sometimes wish you didn't have to bother reading boring print? With the magic of Su Blackwell you don't have to. The book comes alive for you.

Eugenio Recuenco

Poor trailer trash chica has no companion save for a deranged donkey. At the early calls of dawn, trailer trash chica and deranged donkey venture out in dumpster town looking for overlooked treasure. Treasure that could one day free both from their fiscal misery and into a happily ever after.

Sadly, trailer trash chica had an affinity for vintage goods and would selfishly hide the finds from deranged donkey. Deranged donkey became fed up with the gluttony and left poor chica to fend for herself.

Trailer trash chica did not mind a bit. She loved her vintage junk finds and lived happily ever after by herself in a rundown van behind her parent's shack. What girl would choose a deranged donkey over her beloved obsessions?

Absurd story but I didn't want to post these lovely pictures without some text.

Agyness Deyn jumps off a building

Agyness is "free falling" off a fire escape in Pop (Fall 2008). Apparently jumping around in clothing didn't quite do for mr. photographer. Ryan McGinley, who seems to love naked people, had poor Agyness fly around in her birthday suit. I'm sure the neighbors got a wonderful view however.

Bad habits

This blog is not for personal rants but I really have to say that I must quit the bad habits that I have acquired over the years. It snags at my mind whenever I engage myself in the occasional drag with the boy but I've still kept at it the past few years.

One of my other bad habits is my indirectness when asking someone for something that I want (i.e. favors). It drives the boy insane when I mold my conversations into "beat around the bush" dialogue. 

I also have a bad habit of leaving things 1/2 finished. A minor instance of this is nail polish applications. I don't like wasting money by making trips to the salon so I usually groom and polish my own nails. However, there are days when laziness strikes and I end up leaving only one hand painted while the other one goes bare-naked for criticizing eyes to see. 

I'm late to almost everything. I underestimate the time it'll take myself to get out the door and the time it takes for the commute. Driving to school, appointments, get-togethers, church, etc is always an adrenaline rush. weee?

This doesn't fall under the category of bad habits but recycling is my obsession. I can't throw anything recyclable away. It's come to the point where I save my starbucks coffee cups to take home for recycling. I consider myself an environmentalist but I'm sure to others it's plain balderdash. 

Blah there's probably more but I don't want to bore your panties off (Lace or cotton?).

Dirrty Glam

Let's all run off into the inner depths of our closets and pull out the fall/winter clothing that have been beckoning to us during the summer months. Say goodbye to the skimpy bikinis that mercilessly clung to every curve and line of our bodies. 

I can't wait to layer my clothes to keep me warm from the frigid bite of the winter winds. I just wish I had a job to support my wishlist of knits and boots I've been lusting for.

Eva Mendes

Most days I don't like Eva Mendes. She never struck me as a note-worthy actress so therefore I'm not much of a Eva fan. It's really retarded though. I like Eva Mendes in her editorials. I guess you could say that's the only time I really like her.  

She really does know how to work the sex appeal in this photo shoot (ph: Steven Meisel).
