you guys know how much i loved celine s/s 2010 and resort 2010. so much so that i subconsciously must have been manifesting my two favorite looks from those seasons (in my own budget, fetish shop ways) when i went out on saturday in my new leather shorts. or, i'm totally delusional, whatever. YOU DECIDE.
acne t / ebay leather shorts / ghana bag from chrissy / sambas
the shorts ended up being fairly oversized, but i'm still pretty into them. as laia pointed out when i visited her on saturday, the oversizedness makes the zipper (aka the fapperkeeper) significantly less porn-y and i agree. plus, because of the elastic waist, it's easy to play with the proportions of them and make them look slightly different depending on how they fall on the hip/waist.
plus, it's really easy to clean jizz of leather with just a couple sprays of fantastik. win-win-tie.
so so so sooooo into the digital flower prints at jil sander spring 2010. it's like a cross between the flowers on peter saville's cover for new order's "Power, Corruption, & Lies" and the amazing supersaturated hypercolors for his covers for their "Technique" and "True Faith."
ugh, SO GOOD. gonna buy the fuck out of them when they come out, trust.
the two style boners together remind me of some kind of beautiful sartorial frottage/fashion mutual j/o.
been reading this amazing book on disco and its impact on fag culture and all i can do now is listen to diana ross's disco songs. seriously, AMAZING. i mean, i LOVED the supremes and i LOVED mahogany but i guess i didn't realize how good her disco shit was? so let's take a second to appreciate this fantasticness. i've been playing this on repeat for DAYS:
i mean, so TYPICAL of me, right? but whatever I'M OUT AND PROUD. ugh, i am THIS CLOSE to dressing like a clone for the summer.
i had a pretty rough week at work last week so like a good CARRIE, i went shopping to help me remember that i get paid to handle rough weeks. i stopped in jil sander and finally picked up my dream shoes because they were finally on sale (40% off, motherfuckers). i didn't even have to maim any babies.*
anyways, here they are, and they are perfect:
the white outline totally totally makes them:
just enough visual interest mixed with classicism to wear to the office or a business meeting or what have you. i'm PRETTY psyched on them. so is my teddybear:
* speaking of babies, i dragged adam to go see "Babies" yesterday because it was so hot outside. can i just say, was the white baby even necessary? as in real life, by far the least cute of the bunch. although i did like the part where she was [SPOILERS!]slamming on the door to get out of a daddy and me earth-mother-jam session[/SPOILERS!].
