question;

Anyone know what show this picture is from? Found it on a forum...

Any help would be appreciated-this is such an amazing look, I really want to see the rest of the collection.

Oh and today-babysitting duty. Might as well dress up...American Apparell dress and Margiela boots...and my octo-ring by Antonio Paladino.

Notice anything different?

I'm smiling in my picture today-CAUSE I DON'T HAVE BRACES! Friend me on my Facebook (new to it, not many friends :P and talk!

You can't see it in this picture but Michelle Lamy (Rick Owen's lover and former designer herself) has a gnarly grill! It's part of her look I think, which is cool...mine never looked as good. Check out those bangles! Knicked the picture from the fabulous Diane Pernet (http://dianepernet.typepad.com)

Michelle Lamy has really cool style, I wish there were more pictures of her. My mom used to wear her clothing label a lot but doesn't have any of it any more-she says it's extremeley similar to Rick Owen's slinky knits from his Lillies line. Perhaps she is more influential on Rick than she's given credit for...I want to know more about her, her style is superb.

Today: Y-3 top and skirt, Dries Van Noten patent sneaker wedges, eBay'd vintage butterfly belt

Favorite vintage pieces-part 1

A few nights ago my mom and I took some of our favorite pieces of vintage/thrifted clothing items to style-and took pictures! On Monday my mom and I went to a Goodwill that has unsually high volume of vintage asian jackets, which sort of fit into the luxe robe look that I posted about a few posts back. I've been working these pieces around a Fall 07 Miu Miu skirt that I got at our Neiman's outlet during a sale. I wish I had up-close pictures of the fabric (it's so cool!) but I just sent it to the tailor to be taken in a little.


Thrifted satin coat, H&M tank top, Miu Miu pleated skirt, Chloe shoeboot

Here mom is wearing her sixties studded Givenchy shift. It was a great find on eBay. She wears it over Hysteric Glamour jeans with Prada heels.

This angora sweater I'm wearing was about to be trashed by my mom's friend-it was rescued and bought to me and is now one of my favorite cold weather pieces. The angora is so luxe that it looks like a fur coat.


Worn with Miu Miu skirt, sequin tube top from UO, Margiela boots

Mom just got this vintage Chanel jacket from eBay-paired again with Hysteric Glamour jeans and Givenchy lace up heels.

Those are just a few of the things we tried on-later I hope to do another post full of my favorite vintage things-there are so many waiting to be worn in the back of my closet.

Happy Fourth of July to American readers!

quick outfit post!

So I don't have much time to post right at this moment, I'm about to go to Northpark with my mom and my sister and my little cousin-I have a lot of family in town right now. But I was just going to post this quick outfit before I head off-will update later tonight! :)
In this picture I wear: a vintage crinoline from Pandemonium vintage store in Dallas, Adidas cardigan, some Fendi pointy toed flats circa 199

Here's a picture of the shoes, they are really cute....just SUPER hard to walk in!

Yeah, ironic how I don't have a problem walking in six inch platforms (do you know that is how tall my Marni criss cross platforms with the lucite in the sole are?? six and a half actually) but I'm hobbling around in my mom's 3/4 inch tall slides.
