This post may be a little irrelevant; though it's a lengthy one to catch up on my extremely busy month.
Truthfully, I've always been a little envious when bloggers mention their mothers being their fashion idol. My mother never had much of a stylistic trait; that is, until I saw these old photographs of her my age. There's something about the way the rustic hues of nostalgia capture the true essence of her mother's past; don't we all wish to be a little like our mothers?
Albeit my mother's old wardrobe didn't inspire today's outfit, I definitely felt this modern hippy vibe going on. I'm trying to whip out as many Fall/Winter outfits as possible before the bipolar California weather heats up again; I somewhat miss my dark colors.
- Tunic: Christmas present
- Tights: Loehmann's
- Shoes: Macy's
H&M just announced that they are teaming up with Rei Kawakubo, the head designer of Comme des Garçons. I was almost in tears when I found out Christmas is coming early this year (James / Ted, I KNOW you read this. It comes out right before my birthday, I can't hint it enough), probably the best collaboration to date. I'm a bit torn that CDG will be going commercial, I mean, look at Stella McCartney after her debut at H&M..
Yet I'm curious and excited to see how this turns out being that Rei has to translate her absolutely gorgeous constructions to price point. She can only go so far with cheap fabrics to carry out her signature designs conceptually. Either way, it's excellent that she's offering her designs to be more accessible for her fans. I just hope I'm not disappointed with print screen tees..
Last but not least, my boyfriend gave me his Polaroid camera not too long ago and I went absolutely crazy with it when my best friend (who goes to school in Canada) came down to visit me during her Spring Break.
