Bac in Zac.





I was watching an old episode of fashion file the other day and they were showing Zac Posen's Spring 2008 collection. I fell in love all over again and wanted to go back in time. Also I've
been in Winnipeg all weekend (which has been fantastic) and it was plus 9 today! So lovely in fact that my mom and I opened the sunroof in her car and cranked the tunage. Photos of the weekend to come soon...
And spring/summer, baby girl, I've been waiting for you. I'm welcoming you with open arms, high waisted shorts, jean jackets, and any footwear that does not require socks.

I'm just gonna guess I'm not the first one to use that clever title but Stella McCartney tore up the catwalk with her fall 2009 RTW collection, which debuted in Paris yesterday. The collection was classic McCartney with her beautifully structured and tailored garments and those to-die-for boyfriend blazers. I'm particularly obsessed with the leather boot legging combos, Egyptian detailed pants, and the blazer/jacket with the lapel going allllll the way down to the hem. Jeez those McCartney's are a talented father/daughter duo...

ps Did you figure out the title? You can do it. I know you can.

FALL 2009 RTW/ Victoria Beckham

I wasn't going to bother looking at Victoria Beckham's 2009 RTW collection but I came across this amazing dress (specifically the shoulders) and was SHOCKED to see it was by none other then Posh Spice. 
The rest of the collection was fairly posh-less but I found a couple more black beauties in the bunch.

Collared greens.

I made this free standing, pleated collar and I love how it turned out. I wanted to play around with it a bit so I tried it on a few outfits on a mannequin and tried placing the collar different ways like lying it flat and standing it upright. I'm excited to wear it for realziez and perhaps dabble in creating more in different colors and fabrics.

DIGITAL VERSICOLOR.

On Friday I went to see Glass Candy play and it was great show. This was the third time I've seem them in the last year (they def think I'm stalking them...) and once again it was a fantastic show. A band I'd never heard of Night Jewel opened for them and they were really good. There music is kind of chill, and sway-ee with a disco, dreamy feel. Kirsty picked up the record and we've been enjoying it on the daily ever since. Oh yes and I bought a record player a few weeks ago which was very exciting. I found some gold mines at VV boutique including the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, a Tears for Fears album, the Big Chill soundtrack and a bunch more. Music really does sound better from a record player. It feels like your more a part of it. Like your in the band even. Anyways here are some pictures from the show!






I wore this bodysuit to the show that I recently bought and not only is it one sleeved (which I love) but it also has a nice, juicy shoulder pad. 
Diggin' the fringe. Aw yeeeeeeeeee.
I then got inspired and thought I should have some fun with shoulder pads and I went to town at fabric land. So when you see me on the dance floor I will be the broad with the big shoulders. Aighhht?
Ps to all the Winnipeg folks I believe Glass Candy will be passing through around mid March. So keep your eyes peeled and your disco shoes polished.
