Designer Logos

Artist Mike Frederiqo totally put a spin on the concept of "designer logos" and I think it's just great.

First of all, puns. (Get it, designer logos? I'm letting Anna Wintour slide in this case, because she's Anna Wintour.)

Second, I'm a huge fan of any kind of well-done satire, and applaud Mike's creative genius for maintaining the integrity of the people depicted.

In other news, Mike also has a SPONGEBOB collection, featuring our favorite porous sea-creature recreated as designers. So that happened.

Anyway, hope Wednesday is treating everyone well! I know it's doing me right! (I'm just a TAD hyper right now, does it show?)

Fall Textures

Fall Textures

I've been lovin' the monochromatic looks for Fall, especially a good head-to-toe black look with various textures.

As I get ready to pick out some new ASOS goodies soon, I'll be looking for deep reds, olives, grays, and, of course, blacks, in the following textures:

1. Suede: love me some good suede. Excuse me while I spend the rest of the day petting my shirt.
2. Quilting: probably my favorite of Fall's emerging texture trends. It's just subtle enough to be chic in that I-look-great-without-even-trying kind of way. (It also tends to be the cheapest of the above textures, so there's that.)
3. Sherpa: although LA doesn't really permit a whole lot of sherpa-friendly weather, it's still a closet staple for that one randomly freezing day in mid January (because there's always that one day).
4. Leather: always, year round, forever.
5. Fur: okay, mostly faux (who am I kidding, all faux) because ain't nobody got $$ for that.
6. Patent: mostly diggin' this texture for shoes, because everyone feels better with shiny, polished shoes.

Makin' my wallet do WORK this Fall.

Cheers to the extra hour of sleep I got today!

Happy Halloween!

This year for Halloween I decided to dress up as an old-timey detective (think Dick Tracy). However, without a proper trench coat, magnifying glass, or any other Inspector Gadget- worthy accessories, my costume was a little less than convincing. People guessed everything from Carmen Sandiego to a member of the mafia to Rachel Zoe (any of which I'd gladly be). 

In all honesty, I just really wanted to wear the hat. 

It's such a great hat.

Cheers to November 1st!
