if i only knew your name i'd go from door to door

I have no excuse for being such a flaky blogger. I promise to come back with more WIWT posts and more fashion analysis. I'm kinda on a self-imposed social probation (on top of a shopping ban - I'm turning into a hermit) so I haven't really done much besides work on my top secret project.

Here are my two favorite lines from NY Fashion Week. No one else found these two to be that exciting, which means one of the following:
- I have bad taste.
- These lines are too weird.
- These lines are too safe.
- ...once again, I have bad taste.

I'm such a huge fan of Kirsten Dunst, and I really thought she's such a fitting child for Boy by Band of Outsiders. This line is rather safe and maybe a bit too wearable. But there's really nothing I love more than menswear on women. Pantsuits, shortsuits, ties, blazers, bowties... I really love the dress in the middle. It looks so soft and comfy and so femme fatale at the same time.

I'm always a huge, huge, HUGE fan of Yohji Yamamoto's anything. The man has a touch of brilliance that simply cannot be duplicated. I mean, who would have ever thought that sporty flapper was ever possible (far left)? Everything he makes for Y-3 has the potential to work from the office to a walk in the park with the dogs. I love the whimsical white skirt in the center and those little hats are TOO MUCH!


  1. Haha, you do not have bad taste!! I liked Boy by Band of Outsider's stuff because of it's menswear influences, very cute! And Y-3 was okay to me, but I have to agree about the Yohji thing, he rules.

  2. Oh and I read somewhere that Sarah Palin was trying to (or did?) ban James and the Giant Peach from Alaska. Along with a bunch of other books like A Wrinkle in Time and The Color Purple! WTF? *Sorry if you like her! :)

  3. i liked y-3! i liked boy by band of outsiders for like a day because it was like the 2nd or 3rd day of ny fashion week and then when i saw everything else i was like ugh?! mediocre. but, i loved y-3. =)

  4. Wow, I did not know about some of those things you wrote about Palin, like the dinosaur thing. Geez. But you can rant to me anytime, I like hearing some passion! :)

  5. I LOVE Yohji, he is a 'visionary', if I may sling that term in. I loved the Y-3 collection, a perfect blend of catwalk and street fashion. And even if the Boy by Band of Outsiders is 'too wearable', it just works, I really like the collection :)

  6. I'm a huge fan of Kiki too <3

    And i was so pleased to see her model the collection. You're right, it is completely wearable (which is prolly why i liked it so much haha). But the blazers + shorts combi, makes me want to try it out and wear sucha get-up when i go meet my clients.

    You reckon they'd freak out? shorts!
