I hate to be repetitive, but I had this image up on my Facebook wall and everyone seemed to love it so I figured it deserved a spot here as well. (It really is funny and true enough to be displayed twice.) I did a little hunting today and found out that the image is actually a t-shirt print from a clothing company in Australia.
AK commented perfectly by adding that "Disney also gave me unrealistic expectations about body type, prince charming, finding true love, and best friend animals that can talk...and a major one... Happily ever after."

I have officially never been so excited for a film as I am for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. I cannot think of anyone better that Tim Burton to bring Lewis Carroll’s story to the 3D screen. I have heard that this film adaptation is actually a sequel/extension to the original story and takes place when Alice is a teenager rather than a child and is returning to the Wonderland she knew from her childhood fantasies. Between Helena Bonham Carter as the terrorizing red queen, Anne Hathaway as the angelic white queen and the love of my life Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter I expect it to be nothing less than spectacular.
Some historical shots of Valentino and his collections:
- The Like performing at the top of the runway providing a live soundtrack
- The pink, green and purple streaks in the girls ponytails (I can totally see Topshop selling rainbow hairpieces for fall). With all the crazy birdsnest hairdo’s on the runways this is totally rockable, runway to street hair .
- Vintage inspired accessories, sunglasses and hats
- Amazing prints [looks 3,5,13] and interesting cuts [looks 10,14, 21] (2 things we can we can always count on Vena Cava for)
- Lots of Fur
I am so indescribably excited for the Alexander Wang show this afternoon. I promise to post lots of pictures and update on some of the other amazing shows I've been at in the past 2 days. Fashion week has been, as expected, a complete race where I'm constantly both coming and going, but I am so grateful to be able to be involved.
Blogging…sharing all my ideas and thoughts in cyberspace… can I do this? Well, I’m going to try. I guess there really is no better place to start then at the very beginning:
College was coming to an end and I found myself with 3 choices: Get a job, backpack the world with my friends, or go back to school…
You might think it a no-brainer. Paris, London, maybe Bangkok but when I got into Parsons School of Design in New York I couldn’t pack fast enough to get there. Packing of course was no backpack. It was drawers, and drawers, and drawers of clothes. Old, worn, vintage, and of course as many new pieces as my already seriously stretched budget would allow.
You see - I don’t just love fashion. It’s in my blood. My great-grandmother was one of the best seamstresses Cleveland, Ohio ever saw as one of the most loved alterationists at Rae Phillips, the elegant nameplate of fashion in the 1970’s. She could create or deconstruct a garment in her sleep. Next came my grandmothers who are each a walking fashion show. Neither has ever shown her face to the world with so much as a hair out of place. They live their busy lives in the coordinated splendor of immaculate outfits impossibly put together on a daily basis.
Like I said, I had no choice, It’s in my blood! So I set out for the trek from Toronto to the mecca, New York City and never looked back.
I’ve come to realize that fashion is many things. It is business, beauty, creation, color, finance, marketing, shock value, architecture, geometry and soul.
But most of all, It’s not black and white.
I hope to discover many new shades with you.
