Tomorrow night marks our last night on the town before we all head off to college. Look out for us at Scandals circa 11 pm. I'll be in Dolce...

Project Runway to Hell

The overly hyped new season of PR debuted on Lifetime tonight. I'm viewing it right now actually. I figured it would be lame, and I was correct. Somehow, Lifetime has managed to do what it does best. It has taken a show steeped in good taste, great talent and some genuine sincerity in its purpose, and turned it into what should be a fall commercial for Sears.

Is it just me or are the designers a little less than memorable? I found both the personalities of each, as well as their designs, to be stale, dull, and far from being worthy of landing a tv show. There was one dress that I enjoyed. The designer, I can't remember, but as soon as it came out, i said "that's the only good one", and as it turned out, all the judges agreed. The only flame still burning on this show is Tim Gunn's quirky one liners and Michael Kor's gay panache. Heidi should be fired, even though the show is her own production. She's blah, and we all know she doesn't really wear the designer's clothes any other time than when promoting the show. And I also find it pointless to even have this show anymore. None of the past 5 season winners are even remotely relevant in the fashion biz. At all. This show is not really about scouting out tomorrows fashion genius anymore, but instead about clamoring on to as many ratings as possible. Just like any other reality competition these days.

The only highlight from the premiere? Lohan, of course. She came out, got a wild applaud from the contestants (as she should; this will probably be the last time any of them will ever work with her, thank God). She was well poised and better spoken. She knows her shit. She IS fashion. Much more than this low-grade knock-off show of something that used to be much more interesting and relevant. I'm sad to say, I will no longer be watching project runway.

UPDATE: the designer i liked was Christopher. It was just mentioned on the screen.



Thanks be to Jesus

Fashion God/ Devil Anna Wintour is scheduled to make an appearance on David Letterman on August 24th, promoting the new (and amazetastic I'm positive) new Vogue themed documentary, the September Issue. I can't wait. Maybe there will be some eye scratching. But not hers of course; they will be covered in oversized Prada shades. Aaahhh.


CoCo Perez...

Good Lord. Hell must have officially froze over, and Coco Chanel is probably rolling in her grave. Perez Hilton has officially made a fashion website in the same style as his regular blog, perezhilton.com. Ok, I love his regular blog; I read it every day...not even gonna lie. But, with that being said, and I don't care if he is gay, there is NO ONE less qualified to have a fashion blog than Perez Hilton. The poor queen is constantly bashing high end fashion, fashion ad campaigns, and always commenting on the shallowness of the whole deal. So why does he have his own blog all about fashion?? I don't get it. And the name? Cocoperez.com. Ok, please don't refer to a style legend in your blog title. The name Coco should NEVER EVER be that close to the name "perez" in the same sentence. And the welcome video? Its fat ass Perez setting in his closet dancing to Gaga's Fashion. It's revolting. And it's shameful. Uncle Karl would not be pleased.

If this is the new face of fashion, then I'm sure it's time to switch my major.


Oooh Laaa Lohaaan!

My take on Loho's newest cover from Spanish Vogue.

School Shopping is OHficially Done!

I move to school in less than 3 weeks, and I'm proud to say that I'm finally done making purchases for my upcoming Fall wardrobe. Ok, so I'll be honest. I've spent more time thinking about what I will wear to class than what I'll study in class. I guess that's why I'm a fashion major. This summer has been nothing short of an intense shopping boot camp. I've scouted out deals online, found fabulous pieces in stores, and made list after list of this Fall's personal Must-Haves. I'm happy to say I'm finished now, and I'm even happier that I start wearing my new clothes in just 2 and a half weeks. Of my purchases, here's my Final list of newly loved items:


Fendi Logo White/Green/Blue pants
Prada black straight leg jeans
Versace white logo jeans
Stephen Sprouse for Louis Vuitton legging/pants


Tee's by: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Ann Demulemeester, John Galliano, Alexander McQueen and Lanvin


Burberry Trench Coat
Givenchy vest
Dior dinner blazer
Misc. Vintage seersucker blazer

Fendi Belt
Dior belt
Versace belt
Stephen Sprouse for Louis Vuitton high tops
Louis Vuitton tennis shoes

Bags and More:

Louis Vuitton cosmetic case
Louis Vuitton Damier tissue box
Louis Vuitton Damier Geant messenger
Balenciaga weekender bag

Plus, some nice button ups from Burberry, Dior , Yves Saint Laurent and Jill Sander

Overall, I'm lookin forward to what will hopefully be a very memorable, and stylish, sophomore year of college.

Stephen Sprouse Overload?

Ok, so I know the Stephen Sprouse for Louis Vuitton collection is several months old by now, I admit I'm still in a buying frenzy for the colorful line of everything from tee's and tunics to beach towels and leggings. As of recently, in preparation for the upcoming school year of course, I've managed to wrangle up 3 pieces from the collection. My first was the zippy wallet in lime green. I paid $150 for it, and considering it retails for well over $600, I figured, what a great deal. My next purchase were the men's high top sneakers, also in the lime green print. Price? Lets not go there; they were a tad bit more than the wallet, I'll just say. And just this evening, I made what I'm sure will be my final purchase from the collection. It's the piece that I first wanted, but couldn't decide whether or not I should buy it. It's the leggings, or as I'm going to call them- the pants. As a man, it takes balls to wear them, but not too much, otherwise they'll show right through the spandex leggings themselves. I purchased these in a simple black and white. I'm going to be wearing skin tight bottoms; the need for a neon draw to my bottom half is practically non-existent. I've had enough of Sprouse now. I don't think I'll go into withdrawals, but I guess we'll see.


Lindsay Lindsay Lindsay!

Some new shots of Lindsay Lohan's ad campaign for European fashion label Fornaria have just been released, and let me just say...they're amazewack! She looks just beaut in them. Stunning stunning stunning. Her hair is, as Perez may say, faboosh, and she seems to make the clothes like they belong on the runway, permanently. Here's to Lohan, yet again.


Prada Look Book Fall 2009

The new Prada look book has offcially been released, and let me just say- it's amazing! The photography is beatuiful; abstract stills at their most glamourous. It's a tad edgy, a bit off the wall, and all Prada. Enjoy!
I'm so glad I ordered Prada pants last night!


Quirky Doonan

Simon Doonan has a fantast new interview with WWD, which is posted on their site. I love Simon; his personality, his eccentric way of expressing himself, his work for Barney's, and of course- his style. It's interesting to hear straight from the genius himself, how he has single-handidly created the legendary advertising scheme based on caricature, pop culture mirroring, and side-show antics.
