bit of a slow month here on the "chic" front.
some of this may seem . . . repetitive.
in "these economic times"
i have become obsessive,
a new find,
the shoe label augustus
with a stunning assortment of roughed-up
reverse calf, hand dyed men's shoes
the sudden advent of rick owens
as seen in fur on the backs of influential fashion editors
(along with a rather glowing, gushy review of his fall line on style.com,
acknowledging that the younger generation "gets" his vision,
his wearability, and his brilliance with cut
that works on all body shapes and lifestyles,
regardless of runway theatrics)
when carine roitfeld wears you
(how much do you LOVE the bandaid on the knee with the forty thousand dollar fur?)
walking past a garage and spotting an older version of my car,
just back from being repainted.
the owner wanted to match the color from his VHS copy
which had faded down the original color to this:
navy leather interior.
shiver. and sigh.
another reason to love this city.
tim walked to register our cars,
and passed a lot where props from True Blood
were being unloaded.
how much YOUNGER does tilda swinton look
vs. kate moss?
how COOL is that?
you all scoffed when i predicted
men in leggings over on emascul8 last season.
you cringed when i mentioned the possibility of leather.
