I lurve Project Runway! I'm totally confused as to where it's going and a tad sad it's home is no longer Bravo, but I'm just so comforted Tim Gunn will still be in my life, and Heidi's curious German accent will linger on, as well as her giant button bag. So anyways, Christian Siriano of season 4 was my ultimate favorite contestant and although I'm all about Jeffrey Sebelia and Cosa Nostra, Christian is like a fierce little nymph and we all have him to thank for trademarking and officiating the title of "hot tranny mess." I want to put him in my pocket, but I want him to whip me up a little fierce outfit first. Siriano's Fall RTW 2009 collection is just.... lush.... it just growls. His reinterpreted printed leggings, extremely placed stud and spike details, fringe bang clips, and lush, but neutral fabric, and intricate, body-morphing shapes, are just some of my favorite elements from his collection. Let me just add... those teal heals.... holy crap.
I usually don't go wild for the Target atmosphere; I don't like smelling corn dogs as I'm trying to buy towels, I don't like all the devil children who play hide and seek in clothing racks, and I hate spending way too much time looking for the mate of the only decent heel they have in size 9... BUT there are some things I like about Target; cheap sunglasses, garden gnomes, and of course, designers like Alexander McQueen and Anna Sui designing lines for regular, minimum-wage earners like myself. Anna Sui is the next designer up and I will be eagerly awaiting the line's launch on September 13th. Plus with descriptions like, "the elements of art, city, spirit, punk and glamour" I can only imagine what Anna Sui is cooking up with her Target line. Hopefully, it will include inspirations or the slight essence of herfall 09 line, which is incredible. It definitely beckons the Russian gypsy rocker bohemian in me!
It's official... I'm going to live in one of these. Seriously. These modern yurts beat those stupid hobbit holes any day! I would probably need a couple of them though, because my current wardrobe would most likely fill up an entire yurt. I was spending way too much time daydreaming about yurts instead of studying for my final tomorrow morning. I mean, talk about eco chic and low-cost living! These babies would be the perfect dwelling (minus tepees...hm i'll google search those later!) for summer living (Pacific Yurt Living).
These magical heels make everything in my life right. Jeffrey Campbell in general is a god and one of my favorites for shoes that are high quality, but comparatively affordable. If anyone thought unicorns weren't real...shut up.
