Believe you me, metallic nails, eyes and yes, even lips are going to explode for AW 2011-2012. I don't know about you, but I will be sporting a heavy silver lid the second temperatures drop and fall creeps its way in.
Let me first confess something to you... If fashion was a religion, I would convert... and my deity of choice would definitely be Tommy Ton. (For those of you who are reading this and don't know who TT is... you should probably check yourself before I wreck yourself.) Anyways, TT is so fuggin talented and I recently read an article about how he got started and it made me feel like high-fiving him right through my computer screen. He has the ability to see fashion the way very few are capable of; he looks beyond the styling and past the complete outfit, honing in on the smallest, most intricate details. These details are sometimes so minute that even the girl donning them might not even realize the apocalyptic decision she made when dressing that morning. These little intricacies and subtle accents are what make fashion so fascinating. With your body as a blank canvas, the opportunities, mixtures and styling concoctions one can conjure up are ENDLESS.
With photo cred to none other than TT (and Nam of STREETFSN... he is also amazing FYI) Here are few detail shots which truthfully give me an itch to decorate my wrist like an evergreen in December. I really love the mix of brights and neons with grungier metals, so unexpected but complimentary at the same time. BUT, I want to know...how do YOU feel about this new trend? Are piling on colorful bracelets strictly for the "Summer Camp Counselor"?... or is this a cool and chic new way to splash youthfulness in your wardrobe?

These three girls steal my heart every damn time. I met Ruby when she was about 16 years old... I hired her for a fashion preview for Louis Vuitton here in Los Angeles. I immediately knew she would be HUGE, her attitude is soooo cool and her look is sooo translatable... unreal to see how far she has come, well deserved success always tastes the best!
Side Note: I know I haven't posted in a while but, it is hard to talk about anything in light of what is happening in Japan. I would like for anyone who is reading this to keep perspective on their own lives, there is an entire nation bearing devastation far greater than any bad day you might be having. PLEASE, text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate and continue to keep Japan in your prayers, they need everyone, everywhere to do everything possible. <3
Not gunna lie, I am a total closet tech geek. I am strangely intrigued by computers, programming and technological devices so I guess this outfit was inspired by my inner dweeb and of course, THE NEW IPAD which I am hoping appears in my mailbox very, very soon. (hint hint)
although most of us would like to think that street style photos are captured with natural, swift perfection. There is a little more to it than that as the infamous Anna demonstrates below.

I am vibing the shizzle out of Calvin Klein circa 1990s right now and I can't help but
feel hope there is going to be a second coming of that CK cool. (Especially with all these new ads popping up which display some of fashion's most recognizable faces in an attempt to reignite the love for the brand's signature fragrance.) AND, as you can probablyyyyyyyy see from my last, ever so galactic post....I am also vibing the shizzle outta space cadet chic.... So, my only request to the fashion gods is that this futurist style + CK cool make a love child with the feel and attitude depicted in the pics below. Eatchaa heart out.
