I have not looked at very many resort shows yet, but I saw Mary Katrantzou this morning and it is SO GOOD. I love her prints, especially the florals mixed with hard grid lines in this collection. Here are some favorites:
Look at that draping! or maybe it's just printed! I can't tell! :)
This is my favorite.
I love how the print continues onto the sheer bottom of the skirt, it looks so cool
Hey! so after months of abandonment, I am going to be a good blogger and write and post regularly and all that jazz. Lately I have been paying attention to fashion and fashion blogging, so here are some outfits from today & yesterday : From yesterday
h+m dress, forever21 tee, bass shoes
I feel dumb posing so I smile like it's the first day of school
You can see my amateur draping skillz with my t-shirt, which requires bobby pins to keep the sleeves rolled up and to cinch in the waist ( VERY high tech :)
Homemade barrette I made
Closer-up. also unsure of why some photos became washed out, I didn't edit anything, but I kind of like it.
top was a gift unknown brand, forever21 jeans, bass shoes
Recently I really like outfits with multiple prints
Once again my camera washes out the background, but hey, let's pretend Juergen Teller is taking my picture!
The real reason I like this shirt is for the back of it
It feels both dorky and conceited to post pictures of myself, but.................. I'm gonna do it anyway....xo, catrine
I recently watched a superfabulous movie called Amelie. It is in French and I had to watch it for a class, but it is one of those beautiful art-y films so I didn't mind watching it for school. It is super quirky, (sometimes people in framed pictures wink and start talking), but I appreciated the weird parts because overall the movie is unconventional and sad and funny all together. Amelie is the main character (..duh..) and she barely says a word the whole movie. I won't tell you too much more because I think any explanation could ruin it. Go watch it! Here is a trailer:
1.The movie "It's a Wonderful Life” --This is a Christmas movie but if you went by Christmas without watching it, DOUBLE back and see it. It has Donna Reid and Jimmy Stewart in it and it is the epitome of goodness.
2.Alexander McQueen --(If you don't know) He was a fashion designer but even if you don't care about fashion his shows were so theatrical that you cannot help but be both petrified and in awe. The clothes are always so freaky and beautiful and haunting and sad. Example 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54AHS2mKjqI
3.“Who Am I This Time?” by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. A short story. It's pretty tame for Vonnegut but I read it once and it never left my brain.
4.The song “The Man Who Sold the World” by David
Bowie. Nirvana does a cover of it too.
