PATIENCE, DEARS.




Your Colleen has experienced her first full month working in fashion & is running out of turbo, at least physically. Mentally? Conceptually? She's still an ebullient anarchist & ready to rhapsodize over this Marni oil-bled impressionist MASTERWORK.
Because it symbolizes all that is SO RIGHT with fashion at the moment.

Also,
behold my SS08 lookbook, finally amassed, reified, alive!

i am digging all the DVF colorblocks! well colorblocks in general.

i love the chloe criss cross! esp the black one.

that link is TOO MUCH. i love it...!

i really want to get a pair of oxford, but not booties. i kinda like this: http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp;jsessionid=C2FAD3A5E462E59C94FAB96E09A9B7C2.app11-node8?itemdescription=true&itemCount=60&id=14126767&parentid=W_SHOES_FLATS&sortProperties=+product.marketingPriority,-product.startDate&navCount=189&navAction=poppushpush&color=

so i'm still in chicago, just went shopping-- the macy's there is so much more high end than the 34th street!!! there's some marc by marc jacobs shoes... i ended up buying the KORS Michael Kors "Debutante" Cutout Wedge, which i've been lusting after for a while

lastly, i'm digging the whole art school prints... did you see the dries van noten collection, the one where the catwalk had girls with tangerine eyeshadow? with the mismatched prints? love love it.

girl, colorblocking constitutes the basis of my religion! HAHA. No, seriously, it's a huge influence over my style choices and in who/what I favor in the industry at the moment. And I loveee the painterly florals from DVN...I have one in my lookbook, actually. Have you see the Prada fairy collection? It's fucking incredible. All hand-painted and glorious. Miu Miu, Chloe, Marni, DVF, Balenciaga, D&G all did amazing impressionist pieces this season.

p.s. the oxfords you are after are called brogues. :) They are an emergent/sub-mainstream trend at the moment, so you should be able to find some cool options if you hunt around. try shopstyle.
