New shoes new shoes!

New shitkickers by Elisanero. To aid my surviving any impending apocalypse. Awesome.

Unrelated: a small child I know recently asked, “Are you a witch? You only wear scary black clothing.”

Love these shoes. I can’t find them online, but you can find other (equally badass) shoes by the brand at Oak, LuisaViaRoma and Saks.

Coveting 11.3.10

I would like this bookcase, please. Thanks. That will be all. Oh, and an apartment to put it in too, please. Think you can take care of that for me?

Coveting 10.20.10

October 20, 2010

Shoot, October 20th already?! I need to get off my butt and start upping my game.  Enough protracted vacation and vague stabbings at productivity. Time has come for WORK.

But there is still room in there for a little frivolity before the buckling down.  Luxirare‘s leopard print jacket seems to fit the bill pretty well, featuring a use of the print and strong hardware that practically has me salivating. I’m a sucker for a good animal print.

Check it out.

Hardware porn.

Gets me hot.

That’s right.

And if you’re so inclined, there’s the matching camera bag! Bam.

Coveting 10.13.10

October 13, 2010

Dear Gareth Pugh,

If you could just messenger me over the following looks from your new collection, that would be great. You’ve even sold me on the colour white.

Smooches!

Alex

(Seriously, I would sell my baby brother for this jacket.  Sorry Charles. I love you and all, but I’m a sucker for asymmetrical closures and interesting peplums.)

Sleek, black, vaguely armour-like. WANT.

Disco cyborg. Hate the leggings, covet the dress.

This is so cool and android-at-a-Ren-faire-y. I want to twirl around in it.

I think my other brother might have to be exchanged for this jacket. Sorry, Max. Your charms are no match for metallic drapey awesomeness.

So, Gareth, what do you think? Do we have a deal? My undying love and two brothers in exchange for your awesome clothing?

What do you mean, it doesn’t sound like you’re getting much out of it?

So cruel of you, Gareth. I thought you were better than that.

[via where you will also find awesome menswear looks which I ignored in my selfish focus on my own imaginary wardrobe.]

And inspiration to revisit the collection thanks to Gene!

Hero for the day

May 20, 2009

In honour of my mother, who has read his books more times than I care to think about, and my dear coworker, with whom I am currently having a conversation about his awesomeness, the hero for the day is good ol’ J.R.R.

tolkien

I get it if you’re not into the whole fantasy thing or whatever, but I beg you to please reserve any negative opinions until you yourselves have invented several working languages, written books that have been consistently loved since their publication and made into epic movies, and been an adorable old man with a pipe to boot.

Lookit what my boyfrend bought me!

jams

I think we can all agree that he’s a keeper. I’m already scouring my brain for ways to wear them every. single. day. Screw you, pretty high heels. I have no need for you now that I have primary colours in my life.  After all, I’ve only been obsessing over them since January.

When he got them for me, I promptly rearranged my entire outfit, just so I could wear them out of the store. Because I’m five years old. And they are bright! And shiny! Not really, but if canvas COULD be shiny, they’d be more blinding than a Twilight vampire.

I love you, Joe Strummer. How cool is that jacket?
