Geometrical, clean, sleek, modern dresses with color blocking, combining jewel & muted tones, and patterns. I had to double check to make sure I was watching the right show.
Although the end of the show brought through the staple gowns we will surely see on the red carpet, the majority of the J. Mendel’s S/S 2012 line was quite different than lines past, but with the commonality of airy fabric and perfectly balanced to create a sophisticated sexy silhouette. Normally I dream of having one of his pieces for a fancy event I’ll never attend, but with this line, there are several pieces I can see wearing in many realistic situations. This is dangerous.

What I would wear to attend a day of shows during fashion week. Of course, since this is a day dream, I am a fashion editor with access to lots of amazing clothing… obviously. I have the lipstick and the nailpolish, 2 down, 6 to go! What would you wear?
Yay short week! I love me a four day work week. Tonight I’m heading to the Detroit Tiger’s game with some co-workers and have friends in town for the U of M football game. Don’t I sound super sporty? I like going to baseball games… but watching a college football game on t.v., well, I do it for the snacks. Meatballs, mac ‘n cheese, and beer, OH MY. Have a great weekend!
Sight: My bestest friend Lindsey, half of the amazing photography duo Lovella, launched their new site! Hurray for Lovella! Do you spy some wedding shots of yours truly?
Sound: Really excited for St. Vincent’s new album, Strange Mercy, to come out. But you don’t have to wait to listen to the full album!
Taste: Finally made my own taco season. Adios you gross packets! Just mix together the following spices: 1 tbps chili powder, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, 1/4 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1 1/2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper. And if you like it real spicy, add a little dash of cayenne.
Touch: The obsession with cute little post earrings continues.

The past two days have been cold and rainy. It’s Michigan, I’m hardly surprised by weather of any kind – at any time. But now that the weather is quickly slipping into Autumn, although it’s my favorite season, I find myself wanting to scream “HALT!” I’m not ready. Did summer even happen? I didn’t swim, bbq, camp, or picnic nearly enough to move on already.
Today I tried blaming Starbucks for the weather. Yes, Starbucks. I accused their stupid (yet delicious) pumpkin spice latte of bringing the cold with it. Don’t even act like they aren’t capable of such a thing.
So I have decided I am grabbing this beast called Weather by the horns. Camping doesn’t need sunshine and swimming, just bonfires and hoodies. Watch out REI, I’m coming…

These videos definitely make me wish I would have studied abroad in a great city. What an amazing experience! Did you travel abroad when you were young? (p.s. how amazing is the typography?)
