i caught deerhunter a few years ago opening for yeah yeah yeahs at a strange venue called club cinema in pompano beach, fl that was rumored to be owned by johnny depp. bradford cox was wearing a
bright green fuzzy jumpsuit that reminded me of childhood PJs. i was entertained. but now? i am enthralled.
deerhunter's halcyon digest just released today but i've been playing it over & over via NPR's website. below you can hear the three tracks that have risen to the top for me thus far. hope you dig. if you don't, we're breaking up.
giorgio armani was a vast sea of midnight blue, inspired by the allure of exotic places. turbans, harem-esque pants, fitted pants under dresses as you see so much in india. all in a rich, moody indigo.
hope you held on to your harem pants, am seeing them sprinkled throughout fashion, fashion everywhere. whenever i wear any such item with far-off-land leanings i want to do yoga poses & eat spicy foods.
in a total lucky mag-esque random look comprised of my "vintage" floral cardigan from boston proper, bright yellow target tank top, victoria's secret silk pant, forever 21 tassel necklace.
i caught the burberry prorsum show today online & while the live stream had its glitches, the whole concept blows my mind. there was a time that we wouldn't get to see what happened at shows until months and months and months after they took place. now. you can see them immediately. like you're on the 1st row & that rules. while the show began with almost classic trench coats (cool quilting and leather accents gave them an edge), it gave way to deliciously acidic splashes of color. a strong moto focus. eye-popping animal prints. luxe ruching. and WOW me metallics. yay yay yay, london continued to save spring '11. #effwhiteminimalism
in a scandalously annoying knit mini-dress.
(annoying because it hiked up constantly, had me tugging it down all damned day)
