Inspiration for my week.
Yeah, I really need to look like a man who dresses up as a gester-esque thing.
But, who can't love David Bowie...
Oh, and read Tavi's 100th post. She pretty much says what I believe in; absolutely genius. READ IT.

Here's the deal: I think I liked London Fashion Week a load better than New York. Less of the big names and more of the crazy side of me.
And plus, they took risks and decided not to hold back their thoughts.
So, favs in alphabetical order (mucho OCD)?
Charles Anastase, Christopher Kane (kind 0f, it was so-so), Eley Kishimoto, Giles, House of Holland (I'm still a tad bit undecided on that one), Luella, Peter Jensen (especially near the end with the tulle babushkas), and Topshop Unique.
I LOVED CHARLES ANASTASE! It was so great. I've heard about other people loving it too (ah-hem, Belle), and I just thought it was so genius with the huge glasses and the dresses. My favorite outfit was the most simplistic: jeans, long-sleeved shirt, sheer button-down. It was so me (I'm addicted to cardigans now; my school is way too cold).
Luella (obviously) and Peter Jensen were my other two top favorites. Luella's collection was so awesome and happy. I loved the red lips (I'm a red lips kind-of gal), and the hats were brilliant! She is the designer I've liked the longest (since 6th grade, baby!), and I always can depend on her for a great collection.
Peter Jensen was just average up until the end. One of my favorite outfits I've seen throughout this whole season was when the model was wearing just an oversized blazer/cardigan (no can tell), a white mini dress, and a huge clutch. It was so simplistic but yet so chic. I would but that outfit just then and there.
Though I loved the hats, Temperley didn't sell me. But, she always makes great hats which covers for a semi-boring show.
So, your opinions on London Fashion Week? I'd kill to hear them.
And if anyone's like me (a huge Anglophile) and liked the week as much as I did, TELL ME! I would be glad enough to relate to someone for once.
Oh, and what was up with Alexa Chung modeling for Vivienne Westwood? And 3 LOOKS! Though I love Alexa and hate her at the same time (only reason: she's dating Alex Turner), I was just suprised. I know she had a modeling career prior to being on Popworld and all that, but I though she left that in the dust...
Hope everyone had a great week!!

So long New York Fashion Week. It was great seeing you...
But, really, I guess I'll say it wasn't my favorite Fashion Week of all time. I truly loved maybe only 4-5 shows maybe due to my connection to the style. But, some were ehhh.
And so many disappoints. Seriously Alexander Wang? Could you make my heart shatter into a zillion more pieces? I was so saddened along with being severly heartbroken.
But, I loved Boy by Band of Outsiders, Rag & Bone (ah-hem, look below), Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, Proenza Schouler and 3.1 Phillip Lim (it's in alphabetical order above). There were some others that were good too, but they didn't leave THAT much of an impression on me.
The hair and makeup that I loved the most was from Proenza Schouler. I would TOTALLY do my hair like that, and I need an orange-red lipstick similar to the one in the show. I think it looked amazingly awesome.
And what are your opinions on Fashion Week? Anyone? Anyone?
(I must apologize for the lack of updates; I hate that place called school.)

Dear Marcus Wainwright and David Neville,
I could yell at you both for reading my fashion mind and translating it onto the runway without telling me, but your collection is amazing beyond belief. I am in love way in over my head with it. The leather, the zippers, the androgyny...it was at the point of orgasmic. AND THE TUXEDO JACKETS!!
So, I love you both. Words cannot even begin to describe how happy I am...
Most sincerely, Your Secret Admirer
PS: Could you send me the yellow leather jacket, the jeans with the zippers, and the blue shiny suit? Thanks.
(Oh, and Zac Efron on the cover of Teen Vogue? I literally said, "Gag me.")
