Lately, I have been out of control busy. School and particularly work has completely consumed my energy, but my large employee discount and first dibs on cashmere and dvf make it all worth it. So much for indian summer however. Fall wouldn't be so bad, but the weather has been really rainy and gloomy. However, I had forgotten how much I love boots and coats and scarves and the fact that whatever is underneath doesn't really matter. So helpful. These pictures are from last month's Vogue. I've been behind on posting all my magazine finds, plus my scanner is craptastic. They remind me of what fall should be and it gives me a fuzzy feeling inside. Truly. This is also in preparation for harvest times and Halloween. Been living on lentil soup and coffee, reading magazines and using chap stick every five seconds. Guess I'm not minding the fall after all. My blessed gem has just informed me RODARTE is the next designer for Target!! Out of control, I cannot wait! Supposedly, it will be out in December (20th) and there will be around 55 pieces (the most so far for all the Go International lines). UHHH I die. Can't wait to see what their thigh highs will look like! Thank god, something to keep me going through the winter.

"We exist in the nervous bowels of Late Capitalism. In this age of disposable, plastic consumerism, I observe the late nights, the addiction, and the perverse. I am not a passive observer, but rather a reflexive participant. Where the disparate worlds of decadence and desperate necessity meet - the liminal spaces – those of consumption and addiction, I see the animalistic side of human nature, and it
gives scope to the contemporary Human Condition.
We are tourists in our own lives. We often miss the bits that are real."
Christopher Charlie Isoe, 2008
