Totally in love with this editorial in February’s Nylon Magazine. On point mash-up of Surfer Girl vs Raver Kid.
I had THEE most amazing lunch box in 3rd grade. The standard Thermos edition done in Barbie-themed pink goodness. The sticker graphic on the front was of everybody’s favorite plastic blonde in full blown 80′s prom glory (frothy formal gown that MUST have been inspiration for the SS2010 Victor and Rolf collection). The best part of the lunch box was this holographic mirror that Barbie stood next to. IT FASCINATED ME and eventually I ruined it because I picked at it so much. (Kids pick at stuff, dude.)
While I am never getting back that kick-ass lunch box, I AM STOKED about the Hologram trend that is POPPIN’ off and all the pretty/rainbow’d/shiny things available for grown-ups.
Since it’s Tuesday Shoesday, I’m narrowing this trend down to footwear. For your consideration, I’ve broken down my picks into two categories: VERY EXPENSIVE and NOT AS EXPENSIVE. You may choose accordingly.
NOVE TEE-WILDFOX COUTURE // HOODIE – ALTERNATIVE APPAREL // BUTTON DOWN – COVET // MOTO JACKET – SANCTUARY CLOTHING // JEANS – PAIGE DENIM // JEFFERY CAMPBELL LITAS – SOLESTRUCK
‘To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” -Emerson
I am openly addicted to fashion magazines.
It’s a known fact that I’m hard pressed to make it through a run to the drug store without grabbing a glossy on the way out. I HAVE TO BUY FASHION MAGAZINES. Even if I have five at home that I just bought and that I haven’t even read yet…
Today, I was standing in the check out line at The Grocery Store with my rice cakes and coconut milk and I was staring at the magazine rack, so pretty, so shiny, all lined up and beckoning…BUT I WAS STRONG! and was like, NO, MAGAZINES, I WILL NOT BUY YOU! I did good today, guys. Today was a good today.
SO, you can imagine HOW EXCITING it is for a fashion mag junkie like myself to get free ones at fancy, hip hotels like The Standard, where I stayed last month. They had V and W and this GIGANTIC book of all the Fall 2012 ad campaigns. ALL OF THE ADS. and then there was Bullett. HOOOWWWW had I not discovered Bullet* yet?
*Probably because I buy my fashion magazines at The Grocery Store. #limitedoptions #ishouldprobablysubscribetosomething
Anyway. BULLETT IS AMAZING! Every editorial is genius. Like, how good is this one featuring the F/W 2012 Dolce & Gabbana Collection. Peep it:

Since Halloween was ages ago in Internet time and it’s now practically Christmas, I’m taking advantage of this day the week to post a ThrowBackThursday post and show off my kickass Skelotor-esqe Halloweekend makeup from aforementioned holiday.

Huge thanks to Manja of Shining Faces for getting it and producing exactly what I had in mind. Complete with black glittery eye-sockets.

Deadly beauty might be my favorite kind. Gathering Halloween inspiration from this editorial, She Has Waited Too Long by French magazine, Ever.
