it's kinda a big thing

So the latest, and very, news in our household is that my older sister is getting married. It's the first of four daughters, so it's kinda a big thing! My poor dad on the other hand has probably been dreading this day, in fear that there will be a domino effect, and as one wedding is already tres tres expensive imagine FOUR!
I once mentioned to this sister, as we both designers and work for ourselves, that if all else fails why don't we become wedding planners, its a very lucrative business and i mean after all how difficult could it be?!
Her answer to me was 1) she first wants to be married before starting to organize other people's weddings and that 2) when she does get married, I can organize it so she can see if I'm any good.
The past 2 weeks so far have been all about pinterest pinning, looking at millions of wedding sites, finding the perfect photographer, changing the date at least once and dealing not (yet) with a bridezilla, but rather momzilla!

here's a sneak peak of one of her pinterest boards.


The peacocks of the circus

We were once described as “black crows” — us fashion folk gathered outside an abandoned, crumbling downtown building in a uniform of Comme des Garçons or Yohji Yamamoto. “Whose funeral is it?” passers-by would whisper with a mix of hushed caring and ghoulish inquiry, as we lined up for the hip, underground presentations back in the 1990s.

Back home to Santa Cruz // Rodarte

Tie dye, acid washed silk and DIY crystal studding of an alpaca sweater; this collection is a product of the Mulleavy sister's imagination and memories of their younger days.
Where you come down on the collection will have a lot to do with how nostalgic you are for your own youth—that and your tolerance for fashions of the late eighties.
I'm still trying to decide what I think of this collection, but one thing is sure, their attention to detail is immaculate. 
Oh and lets talk about those shoes. I want you, you and you...please!

It's the start of lent today, and one of my things to do for the next 40 odd days is to blog everyday. They say it only takes 3 weeks to form a habit, so lets hope in this case it is true. It's not that I don't like blogging, it's just that I always put it off and before you know it, months have gone by and your blog is covered in dust and cobwebs.
New York Fashion Week is almost done, so I thought it best to start here, and catch up on the best show there is, street style.
