Kiiiinda RE-DONK, but kinda diggin' in a big way.
I just might be the only girl on the planet who doesnt' own a piece of Chanel. Having said that, I do look for the occasional vintage item on Ebay, but just can't seem to seal the deal. It just never fits. I have such respect and appreciation to the living legend that is Karl Lagerfeld, but I just am not a "Chanel Girl." I try. Having said that, I am in awe of the Chanel guitar and quilted guitar bag. They're real bad ass, but not so rock n' roll. Let's see a Wang version. Deal me in!

Today I went to Barneys in Beverly Hills for a Trunk show, where I was lucky enough to meet the hottest designer of the moment, (and most likely the next decade) - Mr. Alexander Wang.
He is to the 21st century, what Marc Jacobs was to the previous.
He's created a movement, and even more so, a lifestyle (Ugh, I know, over used term co-opted by corporate America, but it's true).
With his clothes you can go out for the night, sleep in them, wake up and go for your morning coffee, all without feeling like you're doing the "walk of shame." They are effortless and uncontrived, understated, yet make the biggest statement.
As a designer, he has a fresh and modern, cleaner take on the grunge aesthetic that Jacobs did, but with a little more edge and sophistication. Oh how I hate to use the word "edge", but in this case, it's appropriate.
If I could, I would live in Wang! And if that isn't enough, he was extremely sweet and sooooo humble. I met my friend and mutual adorer of all things Wang, Amanda Reno and her friend Nadia Lynn at the trunk show. Nadia was lucky enough to order a piece that will arrive in July! Lucky lady! Don't hate! Congratulate!

Well, kinda. Kayne & his posse roll bright & deep. This is a another take on the "black rainbow" right here. I really like the direction Ye has taken his music, dress & lifestyle, (minus his bloggng un all CAPS). Anyhow, what's fresh about his crew & this pic is that they all look like little boys that woke up in the morning & dressed themselves in, (fill in the blank__________ super hero set up) spider-man pajamas, a cape, & the ever quintessentiall cowboy boots.
(aka TI$A or Taz is so Arnold) has the dopest style, and is the one, I believe that Kanye is most influenced by. This guys is usually dressed head to toe in MCM which is some sick ass shit! Check it and him out here....

I kiiiiinda wish there was a pill that I could take that would suppress my longing for shoes. It often times feels crazy, because it really isn't going to end. There is always going to be another pair of shoes. I just need to accept this fact, and then convince my husband that I am not out of control in my wanting, longing and coveting of shoes. Until then, I will look to the sky and find the brightest star and wiiiiiiiish for these Alexander Wang beauties.
Mother's day AND my bday are just around the corner!!!!
