Am I behind on the times? The J.Lo Line is wearable?

August 25, 2006


Plaid Coat

While getting an early start on my peacoat shopping, I ran across this adorable black and white plaid coat by who? Yes, by J.Lo……now, I’ve never been any kind of fan of J.Lo but hey, this coat is only $165.00 and it’s mad cute — So I’ll be glad to wear it. Looks like Jenny from the Block has some good designers on her team because the Sweetface stuff has been looking pretty great lately, too.

Metal School: Fall 2006 gets Metallic

August 24, 2006

Judging by the Gucci runway photo above, more than just robots, strippers and Elvis impersonators are going for the metallic, gltizy lame’ look this Fall.

A perfect example of this futuristic fall phenomenon is actress Sarah Lind, who recently showed up to the ‘Snakes on a Plane‘ premiere decked out in this confusing outfit made up of tuxedo jacket, over the knee boots and silver American Apparel Leggings.

The metallic/lame’ trend is obviously not for the faint-of-heart or those who like to blend into the crowd. Here are some other people who have been gettin’ metal and going for the gold lately:

Audrey Kitching
Alternative Model Audrey Kitching

Peaches in Gold Lame
Everyones favorite Electro-Slut Rapper, Peaches

Okay, so maybe it is still mostly robots, strippers and Elvis impersonators wearing this trend. I don’t care, I like it anyway and I’m not afraid to end up on the “Worst-Dressed of 2006” list!!! So expect to see me wearing some of this stuff soon. hahaha.

The Science of Sleep

August 22, 2006

Hello, please stand by for the following non-fashion post.

The Science of Sleep

I am so excited, I’m going to pee my pants. The ‘Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind‘ guy (Michel Gondry) is back with a new film starring two of my favorites: Gael Garcia Bernal and Charlotte Gainsbourg. It looks FANTASTIC. Go watch the trailer on Youtube or the Science of Sleep website so you can pee your pants too.
