london calling

in honor of my fabulous weekend in london, here is english rose alexa chung, who seemed to be the inspiration for every girl i saw on brick lane.

a little while liebmarlene vintage had a post about trying to find alexa's perfect leather clutch. well, i think i might have discovered a reasonable facsimile:

this was my uniform the whole trip, to try to blend in with the locals:

i really loved london. it was great to get out of paris (the first time i've left in four months!) and see some different sights and colors than the relentlessly chic, appropriate streets of paris. i love paris, but being from nyc, i was beginning to miss the eccentricity and wild risks and, well, colors, that make fashion so fun. though i'm not a huge fan of the tacky and overblown, my time in london has made me realize that life can get a bit monotonous without it. and, having ended up at pony step-- some ridiculous club in hoxton square where be-glittered club kids in spandex and eccentric costumes lined up by the hundreds looking like a rainbow bomb exploded at a halloween party-- i think i've got enough wild colors to last me through my last few tasteful, aesthetically perfect months in paris.....

kamel,

avec pleasir! en fait, je suis à paris jusqu'à fin juin.....
et quant à moi, je suis une étudiante de la peinture. mais, toujours puisque j'étais une petite fille, j'ai aimé la mode, et j'ai créé vêtements pour moi-même. quand je suis arrivée à paris, et j'ai vu style ici, j'ai voulu devenir une partie du monde de la mode et pas seulement un voyeur....et alors, j'ai commencé un blog.... et....ici je suis.....

Chung is one darling kitten!

I just have been to Paris a while ago, but was a bit disappointed about how similar most girls there dress. I had such a fond and stylish memory of Paris from years ago, however, style has shifted elsewhere, I'm afraid. At least so I think.
