i don't like standard beauty - there is no beauty without strangeness. -karl lagerfeld

I'm not sure if any of you remember but i did a post about black models in magazines, or lack thereof, here and i recently came across another editorial with a black model and i love it. i like this one more than the other i posted about. this one to me seems more about fashion and less about black models in fashion. now let me explain that before i get a ton, well not really i only have a few followers haha, about how un-pc that sounded. the first black editorial i blogged about seemed, to me, to be more about black women and less about fashion, which is fine, i guess i just wish there wasn't a need to point out the fact that there are black women in fashion because they would always be there, one day *crosses fingers and get hopes way up* anyways, here are the photos, i owe you that much for reading my rant, hope you like because i did. 


WAIT! i have to mention those amazing miu miu peep toe sparkle boots. I want them so badly.

wanted: gold lv shoes


so i know these are from 2009 but i still want them. they are gorgeous. i wore a black dress this weekend and all i could think about is how amazing it would be if i have gold strappy sandals to wear with them. ugh, damn me and my cashless wwatallet.

icon: diana vreeland

While we say there are, they are  only a few eternal fashion icons, few people whose name and importance in the ever changing world of fashion will never fade and Diane Vreeland, my darlings, is definitely one for the books. The woman was discovered on the street for her style! How often does that happen? Looks sure, but style? Hardly ever, is you don't count that college student Kanye tapped because of his shoes.

She was a brillant columnist and fashion editor for Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.  There's a reason why people say that “she was and remains the only genius fashion editor,” that's not a quote people thrown around lightly.

Diana Vreeland was a genius and, to this day, remains an inspiration.


words to live by.

white hot


this dress is the reason why i love chanel. 

i really like blake lively's style but i think the reason i like it so much is because she's like a blank canvas for fashion designers. everything looks good on her because her look doesn't over-power anything she wears. what do you think?

dear jason wu, i love you and this is why.

wanted: light up chanel shoes


i know this show walked yesterday and i didn't say a thing about it and i attribute that to my not being able to focus on anything but elie saab, well that and the fact that i wasn't that impressed with the couture line, blasphemy, i know and i'm sorry. i wasn't really feeling the forty's feel, the boots, or the boxy shoulders, i thought it made the models look bigger than they are, and they're models! imagine them on normal people, but i digress because there were a few pieces i adored (mainly the two pictured below) and of course...the...(wait for it)...

 LIGHT UP SHOES! i want them so bad, it's practically a sin. i mean, look at those bad boys, they are amazing, and innovative and beautiful and eye catching and i know we've seen light shoes before, especially if we know 5 year olds or remember the jimmy choo's but these are so different; it's like a flashlight beaming from your toes! brilliant! LOVE/WANT/NEED!


what did you guys think of the collection? check out all of it here.
