The palette the plate the playing on polyvore

It’s been a whole week of vacation and I posted nothing-no apologies. Because I don’t care that much.(and neither do you, for that matter)

I’m usually a “color color kill me if you have no color” person, but recently experienced short erratic weeks of minimal, monochromatic-ness. Though I’ve always been a fan of long lengths and avante garde, I never truly felt I could possibly subside on neutrals only.

To satiate my thirst, I have created Two wishlists-one for when I feel minimal and one for when I feel maximal. Like my sister Christina, I have a special fondness for the colorful bright prints of Dries Van Noten , and so around 60% of my maximal (no I did make that up-I used my less than $200 graphing calculator to calculate :D) wishlist is comprised of it.

Pink Miu Miu dress, DVN cropped blue jacket, Marc Jacobs teal floral skirt, Stella McCartney awesome dead grass skirt (yes I'm making the names up), DVN print trousers, DVN print gathered waist skirt (no that is it's name!), Miu Miu sparrow print pumps, Tom Binns red necklace, Juicy Couture blue pansy ring (don't kill me! I don't love it enough to die for it!) Oil Silk cuff bracelet ahh enough it's just random pretty jewelry. It's all there. . .

The minimal wishlist is pretty much all black and white. Last year this time, I had a problem with maxi dresses and the omniscent floral hemmed edges and bohemian style. But I really love the avante garde plain, simple, feel of dark plain dresses. It’s not really realistic that I’d layer up on those DVN prints in the hot hot summer anyway.

Penumbra black maxi dress, Alexander Wang white tank, Topshop beaded crop top, Deborah Marquit lace bra, Junya Wantanabe cotton harem pants, Camilla Skovgaard open toe killer sandals, Modcloth close toe pump ($35!!) Mcqueen, Kate Spade, and Svpply baubles.

And the inspiration was Camille, awesome girl she is!

Irrelevance: My Earnest Sewn (what kind of grammar is that?!) wax jeans came. . .and okay they fit but it’s not exactly the greatest kind of fit. And seriously what is this whole wax thing? I’m sticking to chairs. . . I’ll keep them though, considering they were pretty much free. And with the leftovers on my plastic card of $$, I purchased bright yellow tights, which should arrive soon.

I have another plastic card coming in to me in a couple weeks. I figure that I’m going to school next year, and that while immersed in academics, it’s a good idea to be COMFORTABLE, so I figure that I might hit upon some PRACTICAL pantswear- what do you think, high rise Earnest Sewns that might be unflattering or comfy Delias corduroys that might earn the disapproval of my sister pretty hot people and some organ within me? And yes I care what others think-it's what creates me. (Quite a philosphical conclusion)

The Dalai Lama likes Doc Martens. SCORE!

Good luck on your physics test from last friday before vacation, because you were sitting in the MFA looking up at the ceiling with the art class, Catherine!

  5. Polyvore... I really should stop using that site, it makes me want more clothes!

  6. i like the minimalist wishlist. because fashion is lies . . .

    also like the miu miu pumps though. but you could guess that.
