Rick Owens Fall 08 (style.com)
Fur is wrong....fur is atrocious......damn fur feels so good on skin. No matter how hard I try to hate fur somethings about it just stand out at things most of us want to attain. Fur, can say to the would different things. Fur has the ability to make a person look tragically rich but if worn with the right amount of irony, fur can be fabulously tragic. I think the trick is to wear fur as if it were another piece of fabric or to wear it, knowing the satirical quality of something that ostentatious.
I think that's why love Rick Owens or for that matter the Furrier that he design for Revillon. While in the hands of a more traditional designer fur might seem stale and dull. But, when seen through the eyes of Rick Owens pieces of fur become elegant and primal creations; unconscious of the fact that they are pieces of dead animals. Tortured femininity is a cornerstone of Rick Owens designs. The women who wear his clothes look like warrior queens when traipsing down streets and catwalks.

It's almost time for school to start. Summer is almost over for me and I am excited. Tank tops and short were cool the first month but southern heat doesn't leave many options open during the summer and so I am ready to start wearing sweaters and pants again. I keep wondering what I need to be looking for, for fall. A few things are on my staple list and others are in the "dream" file.
- over sized sweaters and cardigans
- jersey t shirts for layering
- rugged boots
- A new scarf
- leather driving gloves
- wool shorts
- black jeans
- a pair of ray bans
- something with fur trim in it
- YSL Johnny Boots

I have the sudden urge to buy a fanny pack. I'm thinking that maybe if I get one that is as ironic and luxuriously disgusting as humanly possible the look will be so wrong it will work.

Happy Birthday 30th Betsey Johnson.........well not the designer. She's way older than that. She celebrated the label and collaboration between her and her business partner and CEO Chantal Bacon at her Soho store surrounded by friends, family, and fans.

I have a serious love for Converses of all kinds. And these are just so damn pretty!
These are done in collaboration with MC Lupe Fiasco for the RED program.
