dream shoes, true dream shoes

An ocean of sighs. Don’t think I’ve forgotten about you, Isabel Marant studded boots. Since I first clapped eyes on you weeks ago I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you. But I’d always assumed it was going to be doomed, unrequited love withstanding a sudden whirlwind trip to Paris: Marant goods are notoriously […]

リラックスするには落ち着く音楽を聞く必要があるかもね?今日のオススメはフランス語好きなmondialitoです。junko(vo)と笛岡俊哉(compose)のボサノバみたいな音楽を聞いてくつろげる I’ve a fatal weakness for the very lovely French language and apparently so does Japanese band mondialito. Composer Toshiya Fueoka met vocalist Junko in 2002 and mondialito was born. Boosting delicate vocals sung entirely in French, the gently acoustic electronica music has a certain special charm to it. Junko now lives in Paris (don’t […]

kimberly ovitz

Today’s massive fashion designer crush is Kimberly Ovitz. Having done stints at J. Crew, Chanel, Imitation of Christ, Ya Ya Clothing, and Twelth St by Cynthia Vincent, she launched her own line in Spring 2009. And she’s my age…! I’m head over heels for her gorgeously sophisticated, somewhat androgynous minimalist silhouettes. Am also seriously considering […]

motocross jeans

I’ve got a new rule for jean buying, which is pretty much that I can’t buy any new jeans unless they are somewhat unique (I have the same pair of Uniqlo skinnies in 3 different colours- though can you blame me, they’re as comfortable as leggings… even so, though…). Motocross jeans really fulfill this requirement; […]

y hello thar topshop aw 2009

Going to be keeping an eye out for a vintage purse, boots, and jacket I can DIY stud up in similar style. There’s something pretty ridiculous about that fluffy leather jacket, but I also kind of love it- a little theatricality to keep you warm when the weather gets cold. Check out the rest of […]

love at first sight

Girls, you know exactly what I’m talking about. The sweaty palms. The fluttery butterflies in your stomach. The flush that rises up your face. That squeezing feeling in your chest. I’m talking about love at first sight. Shoe love at first sight, that is. It’s pretty rare for me to plunk down and instantly buy […]

complex geometries

Montreal newbie company (started in 2005) Complex geometries is impressing me so far; novel, flattering shapes, surprisingly sexy unisex designs, simple colour scheme with occasional pops of bright colour. Wouldn’t mind adding a few of these pieces to my collection; bodysuit and hood in particular. I could eat, like, 5 cheeseburgers in that hood and […]

paul & joe fall 2009

August can’t come fast enough, as I’ve gone completely mad for this beautiful little leather dress from Paul & Joe’s Fall 2009 RTW collection. I’ve been debating for a long time getting a tattoo on my back similar to this design (minus the studs, head, and tail) and was pretty delighted to see something similar […]

spangle call lilli line

大好きな下北沢から素晴らしいバンドSpangle call Lilli line を見つけ出すv (ちょっちょっと変なバンド名だけど(汗)) シンガーはイラストレーター。ギタリストはフォトグラファー。他のギタリストはグラフィックデザイナー。面白いね!!!日本に住んでる時、このバンド知らなかった。残念ですね。このような美しい音楽を聞いているのはとても面白いし、リラックスする。ライブに行ければ幸せ者だな・・・ I’ve fallen pretty hard for this amazing little band, Spangle call Lilli line. Hailing from Shimokitazawa, one of my very favourite corners of Tokyo, this indie rock band is a blend of lush ambient downtempo rock, electronica, hauntingly surreal lyrics, and beautifully delicate, layered vocals. The band is made […]
