Collective Soul


This is a little gathering of past collections that have struck my fancy over the last couple of days.
1st- Luella S/S 09. I love all of these pretty colors. I remember seeing a whole editorial of Luella's clothing and an interview with her in Lula and I just fell in love. The pretty lilacs and fun florals have really done something to me here.

2nd- Basso and Brook S/S 09. Im not really sure If I would wear anything here but the colors were absolutely astounding. All the origami pleating and vibrant oranges was absolutely incredible. Its insane to think that someone actually thought all of it up and made these garments.

3rd- Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 08. When I first previewed this collection, I didnt think much of it, however upon watching Glee, which basically the entire cast was outfitted in this collection, I changed my mind. The green houndstooth here totally stole my heart, as well as the dark structured coats and Off the Deep End black tee. What is that, a. leather. dress? Say whaaaa?

Wowwwwwwww!!! Those Basso & Brook creations are so amazingly VIBRANT!!!! And I felt similarly skeptical about that Marc by Marc Jacobs collection (compared to Fall '07 which I really loved) until I saw some of it in person.... (doesn't it ALWAYS happen that way? I need to stop seeing amazing clothes in person!!)

*sigh* so beautiful!

i saw your tweet on twitter about giving up blogging and you really shouldnt. !!!!!!!!!
the person who said you dress to mature for your age is a twat, when i look back at how i dressed when i was like 14 (7 years ago) i think SHIT what was i thinking and i think it safe to say you can look back and be proud!
plus whatever this karla thing is, its stupid, i havent seen her blog on her alter ego but even if you were taking inspiration from it i dont see how that is bad thing. designers and artist take inspiration from each other ALL the time.

keep being amazing

p.s totally rate basso & brooke !!!!!

I bought the 'off the deep end' tee in grey with pink writing because I was trying to break out of my wearing all black habit. Bit mistake. I psychotically loved that Marc by Marc collection. A couple of other designers did similar leather dresses at the same time. I remember seeing one by Vince on sale for like $300. I was tempted, but couldn't part with the cash for something I know I wouldn't ever have the gumption to wear.

Love the blog--big hugs! Don't worry about what people say. Just try to feel comfortable in your own skin--hard enough as it is.
