Gorilla Girl

Sorry for the recent slowdown in updates! There has been a computer tragedy and I am currently without laptop. Other than that I have been pretty busy these last few days working on some exciting projects-I was in New York earlier this week and it was a blast! I can't wait for NY fashion week.

Here are some pictures taken a month or two ago by Bret Sano-I borrowed my mom's Christopher Kane gorilla dress for this shoot :) Thanks, Mom!

Wearing Christoper Kane dress with Givenchy patent leather bondage wedges, vintage belt, and a Cassette Playa jacket.
I am OBSESSED with the flame jacket. Obsessed!! Such a good purchase.

Hopefully my computer situation is resolved soon! Until then.

i like how you've styled your mom's gorilla dress, especially with the sweet little mouse buckle...i think there's some wit behind that...!
those shoes are killer; i love seeing them- they are really versatile and ultra cool.

I am completely frustrated by this blog. With everything that is going on socio-economically, politically and otherwise, to come to this blog and be bombarded by images of an insanely wealthy girl is insane. I see one person responded to someone else's comment with 'mony doesn't buy style' and I disagree. It is easy to look at pictures and copy. Whether those shots are from Vogue 2009 or 1999, a copy is a copy of a copy. I just think it is a like strange that she does nothing but take pictures of herself and her shoes and whatever else she's wearing. You'd think there are other things to document in one's life, such as times shared with friends, school trips or college applications. And what is most disturbing of all is all of the blind obsession and envy from the women and men posting! I don't believe for a moment that you postres care as much as your eyes crying tears of jealousy do. That is what drives the interest in this blog, the constant desire to have what one does not have or is not meant to have. It is this same feeling of lust that drives our media, publications, etc... the scores of individuals with body image issues or in poor economic situations, constantly wishing to have what a select few do.

that jacket goes amazingly well with the dress.

"Exciting projects?" You mean more shameless self - promotion that will eventually be turned into lucrative deals with other companies beyond Urban. You are just a product of our nation's unfortunate obsession with "celebrity" and all that is "it." Wearing ultra - expensive clothes, using $2300 cameras for photo shoots and seemingly having the perfect life; it is easy to amass a collection of fans particularly when most are jobless, middle - class and miserable. I want to like, really I do, but I might have to agree with Marcella Vista on this one, you don't really do much other than flaunt your wealth, status and soon to be power. It is really too bad that this skyrocketing fame has to be given to you and not to hte dozens of other blogs that are out there, girls in the trenches just to look fab. You just have to present your mother's AMEX.

WOW the Kane dress is stunning on it's own, but with your shoes & everything you work it sooooooooooo well.

Photo of Midge

Yeah, I pretty much died when I saw the jacket. I mean, it has FLAMES on it. That screams awesome.

Photo of Angie

Holy wow that dress is so amazing it looks 3D! I'm not into the wedge shoes but I'd make an exception for those. Awesome outfit altogether.

Photo of hannah

you look so so stunning, as always :)

i was wondering if perhaps you could recommend some brands of shoes (heels particularly) that are relatively good quality for a girl on a budget. i know that generally you get what you pay for, but do you know of any heels that are well-made? i'm hoping for maybe in the $100 price range? i tend to buy a lot of cheap heels from places like charlotte russe and they are so uncomfortable i never wear them :( i have dozens and dozens of cheap heels i never wear, when i could have fewer that i DO wear. i just don't want to spend a lot of money without knowing i'm making a wise investment.

i would appreciate it if you could make some suggestions :)

thank you so much,
<3 hannah

Also, check out Mona Moore for its amazing sales. I just got a pair of Dries Van Noten heels for 80% off (marked down from $650 to $132)!

Lastly, Gilt Groupe has incredible sample sales off nearly every designer you can think of (recently got a perfect Alexander McQueen black jacket for 80% off): http://www.gilt.com

Instead of buying a lot of cheap shoes you hate, save up and buy one fabulous pair you'll love. Dries Van Noten makes fantastically stylish and supremely comfortable shoes.
