buttons

So couture was pretty much awful and i might review the collections later on in the week since i'm in a rush now (salvation army outing). Chanel was nice even if there was those wierd cullote suits and dior looked like a tranny quinces and valentino was a travesty that i do not want to discuss, and i never even liked the "refined, elegant woman" valentino.
I will definitley review rick owens and cdg menswear since they were actually good. Especially rick, i definitley need to crocodile and fur in my life (i'm being a bad vegetarian).
Anyways, salvation army last week brought some lovely things into my life. The jacket i'm wearing here is particularly eventful and has all kinds of button options. I'm ejoying the ann demeulemeester f/w 09 vibe coming from it but the sleeves kind of scare me. I think i'll just make it a vest or something. I also got a very exciting striped vest that has become a vest with tails which will make its appearance on the blog soon as well as this dress with pleats that now is a vest thing with tails.

outfit!

I'm wearing black pants from somewhere that sells clothes, black patent leather cr. martens, black sweater from cos, black mesh t-shirt from american apparel, white t-shirt whose wherabouts are inconsequential, thirfted jacket, black cardigan that i buttoned amongst the jacket

i have some thoughts about couture too. i did like some from dior... and valentino. haha.maybe the clothes were lost in the styling but there were some beautiful pieces.

I love the way you buttoned your jacket.

Ashley said...

That jacket is a sick find, I want to go to your Salvation Army! Mine never has anything... but you've inspired me to try again, in hopes of finding something even half as amazing as this.

I have similar sentiments regarding the Couture shows. Maybe it's because I'm expecting designers to go all out with their creativity (what better occasion do they have), but I can't say any show blew my mind like I was hoping.

Awesome jacket by the way! I love the asymmetric closure on the front and the button detailing. Why do the sleeves scare you though? I think they're fine...

I really like your outfit. That outer cropped jacket looks awesome - it looks like it was originally one of those 'cute' cropped women's jackets?
