Look at this mysterious GQMF

Allow me to reiterate:

Look at this mysterious GQMF:

Did you think I, as a blogger, would able to NOT acknowledge the next levs~ness that was CdG spring/ /summer '10?! If you thought that then you are sadly mistaken. When I saw this collection, not gonna front, I may or may not have dropped a tear.

Question: Is love too strong a word for someone you have never met/ /couldn't fathom meeting, even in your WILDEST dreams. (of course I dream about fashn, it's like totes all I think about. NO I DO NOT DREAM ABOUT THAT DUDE IN MY GYM CLASS, lol wut gave you the slightest inclination?!)

Clash of galaxies
An image from the Hubble Space Telescope shows two galaxies merging into one beautiful mess known as NGC 2623. The picture, based on data acquired in 2007, was released on Oct. 13.

What does this have to do with Comme des Garcons you ask? It has everything to do with it. They are both completely unexplainable natural phenomenons that blow my mind. so there you have it. I just made a connection w/ the universe and Comme.

A peek into the mind of a genius, you guise:
When I saw this I thought, "Belle could DIY that. Then I remembered that I have no talent whatsoever, except the fact that I am an awesome improviser person.

What mainly caught my attention was the fact that Rei seemed to revert back to the basics, I should let it be known that this 'digging into the archives and coming up with the most timeless shit ever', actually reaffirmed my love for her. (as if there was ever a doubt)

Did you notice that:





I need to own that jacket. I foresee it being a best seller. "So classic, so COMME."

Hey look, another picture of outer space.
The hair at CdG reminded me of the colours in this photo, so this serves as that and a break in between the brain numbing awesomeness.

Four of the galaxies are interacting in a gravitational dance. Isn't this awesome? I kinda want to photoshop myself into this picture busting out some 'killer moves' (air quouts because the only thing that my 'moves' kill is my dignity. but whatevs)

Um, purple is my favourite colour. did you know that, Rei?! *smiles manically*

We're chaineeeeeeeed

Shoe lust part deux. (well not really since I've done like 3 'shoe lust' post here and here) Me thinks this should be an ongoing thing.... Yeah? Yeah. If you know me then you know I have been collecting Nike Dunks and other especially awesome trainers since I could walk. So out of all the things I talk about on this here blog these post mean the most to me. Also I should add that I covered THOSE Chanel light up heels in my first ever 'Shoegasm' post way back in March of this year. They are so dope. I wonder whey ppl are just now fawning over them? Hmmm...

Awesome kicks by ???

These are the most beaten up/ /amazing kicks to ever exist. EVER. I believe that if I owned them they would become my 'go to trainer', like to slip on and just go places... I don't necessarily know what places I would be going but I know it would be awesome.

I know I'm not the typical 'Versace girl', but I can't help but love these. They remind me of the curtains in my nan's (aka grandmother) tea room. Which of course brings back lovely childhood memories and so on. In short, I apparently can make connections with Versace heels and my childhood. FUCKING GLAMOROUS.

I gather that if you don't own these (me included) your life is significantly less fulfilled. I mean I don't want to be the person to say 'ZOMG I LOVE THESE' but uh, ZOMG I LOVE THESE... Oooops! Couldn't help it.

Alexander McQueen
All I can say is, "Try to copy this Steve Madden" Although I should add that I'd simultaneously give Steve Madden the middle finger whilst patting him on the back, that is if he could pull this off.

Converse x Missoni
Did I mention I'm a sneaker head? Oh.. I didn't, well I am. So its kind of a given that I love these kicks. You could wear them so many ways since the tribal print has the diff colours included.

Diet Butcher (Slim Skin boot)
I've noticed that 'work boots' or industrial boots have been getting play in some editorials and showing up on more ppl on streetstyle blogs. I really dig this trend, and I can just borrow my Dads old work boots FOR FREE as opposed to buying from a store.... but if I were to buy from a store I would purchase these.

Casely-Hayford Spring ‘10
Uff, these are so cute! Don't you agree? Of course you do, why wouldn't you. Its like the epitome of a good shoe.

They are a goddamn ROLLOVER STUDDED COMBAT BOOT. nuff said.

Louis Vuitton
So I should say before I type anything that I am in no way a 'label whore'. You kinda have to love these... plus the fact that I saved these in my file labled 'Shoe Lust' (you see I am not making this shit up, a file on my computer actually is labled Shoe Lust) under the name 'Louis Vuitton omg these are seckss'

Nike Liberty Milkfed Dunk Hi

Remember when I said 'I collect Nike Dunks' well these are Nike Dunks, and these are a part of my collection...
Say hi to them, they will say hi back. They're very friendly, you know. (I do admit that I am slightly strange. So What.)

I am not worthy. These particular YSL booties are that of the wonderful Childhood Flames. and like I previously stated, I am not worthy.

Vivienne Westwood Bondage Boot
Just. Look. At. Them.

She insist she got more class, we know.

(I wrote this whilst listening to some rap music, so if I use confusing/ /out of date slang please pay it no mind)

More maniacal crazy dress time! Yay! I really thought about this selection and wanted to choose some especially gnarly combinations. Is insanity a theme? because there's surely alot of that going on with these dresses below, if the dress wasn't especially drastic/ /dope/ /miraculous then I excluded it. 'nuff said.

Bora Aksu
I haven't seen this brand getting attention on other blogs, which is totally absurd considering this was one of my favourite collections.
Things that make it awesome: a.) the cut/ /silhouette of this dress is really QT! b.) the detailing is otherworldly. c.) I could see this featured in like a Tim Walker editorial or something equally whimsical. ABCs biznitch!

threeASFOUR is always exciting to see, the entire presentation makes this brand one of the few highlights at NYFW. I also really loved the makeup situation. Okay, with that said, I should mention the reason I posted this: THAT. DRESS. (do you like my creative use of caps lock? I'm sure you do.) It's all ~flowy and stuff. (a peak into the mind of true intellectualism, you guise.) No, but seriously, the fabric utilized allowed for the dress to hang in a way that made it 10 times more elegant/ /awesome than any other ldb.

Peter Pilotto
Peter Pilotto is amazingly talented, It's truly a shame it took this collection to bring his awesomeness to my attention. but like how could you deny that this print/ /silhouette/ /colour usage is not the best thing you've ever seen. Don't you dare say it's not! (fear my exclamation point!) (lol)

Is it just me or does every dress Marchesa makes (yay alliteration) seem like it could be in a goddamn fairytale? Me thinks that chick Cinderella would rock this well. I hear pale pink (moar alliteration!) frocks go great w/ glass slippers.

Toni Maticevski
Question: DID YOU NOT JUST DIE WHEN YOU SAW THIS? ....sorry to break it to you but if your answer was 'no' then there is no way that we can be friends. sorry. that's just how I roll. I mean, this is kind of perfection in a handbasket. A few parting words: TULLE CLUMPS ON TOP, EVENING DRESS ON BOTTOM.

Peter Pilotto (again)
This man can do no wrong. I love how this dress reminds me of like the surface of some awesomely awesome undiscovered planet...or something... and then its like 'whoa! out of nowhere some shimmery metallic situation'.
If that made no sense to you I say in short, this makes me happy.

Josh Goot
Simple, yet awesome..... simply awesome? Yes indeed.

Charles Anastase
Despite the whole 'reminds me of a ~chic toga' thing going on I just can't help but love it...

I haven't seen anything more perfect. I have a feeling detail shot of this would blow my mind. Me thinks sea foam green should be used in delicate little frocks more often!

Toni Maticevski
Did i mention that I absolutely love anything made by Toni Maticevski? Allow me to reiterate: I love anything by Toni Maticevski. Point blank, end of story.

severe and delicate looking dresses

....and here is a post in which I go on about dresses (even though the chances of you seeing me in one are slim to none, I'm a jeans and t-shirt kinda gal)

also uh...no bigs...Just me RETURNING to The StReeT Chanteuse after a month long affair with my tumbelog. The affair meant nothing. Just lots of rampant foto uploading and very few words. For me having a Tumblr is sorta mindless, no thought is really involved. (I'm not speaking for all tumblrs because I know a few I check on the regs and there are some awesome themed tumblrs as well, like Elvis Depressley and I Am Voldie Fierce, for instance) When did I promise to post consistently?! No... I didn't, but I'm sure if I make a promise I'll probs just end up breaking it. I mean that's what promises are made for, to be broken... I believe either a very wise or very foolish person told me that, either or.

Basso & Brooke
(This collection of my favourites are in no particular order, so If you're offended by the fact that I have Basso & Brooke first and not like Oscar de la Renta or Marchesa just know that I have plenty more dresses to showcase and fawn over)

...so obviously I fell for the print, but mainly I liked the mix of the bold colour palette w/ the nude underlay. NICE WORK.

Tadashi Shoji
Look 4 from Tadashi Shoji had me all wound up. I really loved the intricate ruching and just overall coolness of this dress..... SEVERE FO SHO'

Basso & Brooke (again)
I like the length of this dress, it's like.... more severe~ness for the eye to soak up. Almost too much, but then again not too much. ya know?

Charles Anastase
I think this could be simply put as 'I like what I like'. Granted this dress might not be all that severe, but it is plenty delicate. So in short, it fits in. (p.s. I'm a sucker for tulle, and especially red tulle against beige)

Antonio Berardi
I've seen this silhouette before, but since it hasn't been overly done I was glad to see it again. When I say 'glad to see it again' I mean like as in one of those distant relatives, you know the type, who rarely visits but when they do you know to expect one of two things 1.) a wicked nice heirloom that they dug out of their attic and set it aside just for you 2.) they will give you and your siblings a whole 10 bucks to DO WHATEVER YOU WANT WITH (10 bucks each equals big ballin' back in the 90s). Also the jewel encrusted bodice situation doesn't hurt either.

Sachin and Babi
Just a cute and quirky little number, perfect for something that I can't quite describe but I'm sure it involves a clown.

Flowy-ethereal-godlike-miraculousness. Yes, that is how I describe this dress. Got a problem with it? no? didn't think so.

Frank Tell
Am I that far into the post where I can just say, 'whatever is happening here, I dig it' and leave it at that? gosh I hope so. because that's all I got, its a secksy little dress with a sort of awkward construction but I think I would party in it.

John Rocha
This reminds me of what a brides gown might be in like the 60s? Am I reaching?? I don't know... it doesn't have a vintage feel to it but I do get kind of a free love and flower power~y vibe (holy shit I italicized 3 times in this sentence. I am on a roll!) Def not a traditional bridal gown, maybe modern?

Michael Angel

sorta a pseudo Rick Owens silhouette going on here... not exactly but kind of a little bit. anywho I LIKE IT.

Obligatory Luella dress, hahaha j/k. I really did like this dress. Despite the kitschy feel I think it was executed tastefully. Plus, need I mention, It's Luella after all. She can do no wrong.

Viktor & Rolf

Holy Shizballs. Nothing can touch this. *cue MC Hammer song* *insert me dancing awkwardly*
