pretty things worth posting -

in no order,
with no reason to the rhyme,
some pretty things to peruse,
for my lovely ones.
the ascent of the classic supermodels at the metropolitan ball:
the model that was (sorely) missing:
(rumor has it she did not attend in solidarity with alaia, who was snubbed by wintour in the show.  brilliant. and in keeping with the "i don't get out of bed for less than ten grand a day" girl.)
anna della russo on the streets:
nothing says "soak it up, bitches, i'm the fashion director of vogue japan" 
like feathers on the streets of paris.
kate lanphear, or "la lanphear", queen of the accessory:
reasons why i want to be a woman, sometimes:
and yes, i realize my choices qualify me for life as a socialite.
or a whore.
i'm ok with that.
reasons why i'm glad i'm a man:
rick owens trainers
boy pics on the web for other boys.
paillet pants:
inspired eyes:
looking back at this, i am apparently deep in a "glitter" phase.
a special hallelujah out to my new favorite fashion blogsite:
this one's got me coming back daily for new pics.
it's fashion with a capital F.
it's "if you don't know, don't bother"
it's perfect.

Hey there!

Found your blog through your website after doing a little googling and just wanted to give major kudos for producing one of the most beautifully assembled series of tv-spots I've ever seen. I'm referring particularly to the Buenos Aires ones—they're absolute perfection.

I was writing a blog entry the other week on Old Navy's (sort of) timeline of advertising trends, and after reminiscing over the Spring 2008 campaign thought to myself, "oh man, I need to find that behind to scenes video for the name of the creative director or someone!" And here I am at your blog (a while later... I can be such a procrastinator)!

It's really a shame that ON has reverted to its old ways (original logo, kitschy advertising, poorly-fitted fleece pullovers, etc) because for a while there I looked at them as an up and coming fashion-forward discount/family stores. There's no excuse why fashion can't be family-friendly, comfortable, affordable, AND nicely designed. A few places have figured that out (like Target) and for a bit there it seemed like Old Navy had too.

I think that's about all I have to say, haha. Sorry to go crazy with this book-length off-topic comment!



PS: If I could say one thing to Old Navy it would be: No more supermodelquins! Please, ON, please! My eyes and ears bleed everytime they come on. Bring back spots like the ones with Lights (who I am now a die-hard fan of with thanks to the ad campaign—she really is a talented girl!) and Ingrid Michaelson. I'm begging you!

PPS: On-topic with the entry: the Leopard print heels... YESSS!!!

jakandjil is the best.
and I think your shoe taste is justified considering you've not spent too much time tromping around town in them :)

I am in deep, deep, drooling love with the strappy leopard heels.

Me-ow, baby.

I'm completely addicted to jakandjil too. Love the ADR in Lanvin shots up now.
