If I...

Summer's been pretty hectic! I've decided to dedicate this blog post to a special topic: If I...

If I had the long legs...

Her wonderful purple outfit and classic peep toe pumps are making me so jealous. Her style is to die for with the simple black clutch in hand.

If I were in Paris...

I've always wanted to visit France, especially Paris. I've always wanted to wear the classic black béret and carry a 2.55 Chanel bag. The girl in the picture doesn't have the Chanel bag but she has everything else. Flowy dress and simple necklace equals pure perfection.

If I was French...

No Doubt about it. I would be Anna Mouglalis. Not only is she set to be Coco Chanel in the upcoming movie about Coco, but she also models for the luxury brand as well. Everything about Anna just seems so French. Her sexy voice, the smoking, and her sense of fashion. So chic. God i love the French.

If I was 40 years old...

I would be Daphne Guinness. Style Icon & Glam Queen. She is the only person I could ever imagine to pull off a two-toned hair style. Did I mention she has a rockin` body after 3 kids? Oh she's wearing Chanel HC btw.

If I had to choose a trend I hate...

Uggs. WORSE. Uggs with shorts or "pink" shorts. I believe Uggs are hideous, no matter how warm they make you feel, they are fugly. Uggs should be wore as slippers and that means INSIDE the house. I would rather die then wear these fugly sheep slippers outside. I especially have no idea what people are thinking wearing Uggs with shorts! My thought is a person wears Uggs because its cold, then why would you pair them up with shorts? Its such a contradiction!

If I had to choose a trend that might be "in" forever...

There is just no way this scarf will ever be "out" of fashion. Everyone has this from Heidi Montag from The Hills (shudders) to A-list celebs all over the world. Usually, I`m not into the whole "skull" thing, but this scarf is an exception. It comes in almost every color you could imagine and matches with any ensemble. God I need one right now.

Well, I`m off to sleep and will probably post later this week, but for now I`ll just enjoy the pages of Vogue Paris with Daria. These editorials are wonderful.

Wang #17 - I'm back!

Finally back after a long month! I've been out of the whole fashion world and tfs for a month. Why? I got so sick of WAYWT. Hell, I'm sick of my own WAYWT. I needed to look at someting refreshing! But anyway, on my journey back to the fashion world I ran into this...

GROSS! Takashi Murakami x Louis Vuitton give birth to "Monogramouflage". Looks like Bape barfed all over Louis! As if the first collaboration wasn't bad enough! The only thing great about it was the cute ad I saw on youtube. The only monogram I would buy is the original canvas and the mahina. Enough said!

So other forms of art were enjoyed during my small break, especially interior design. One trend in both fashion and interior design now are probably mixing vintage and modern items in order to concoct a unique look.

So would you rather buy real vintage or a new item busted up and thrown around to create a vintage look (perhaps the option for the hygiene freaks)?

Wang #16 - First WAYWT and Rants

It's extremely hot here today!

First waywt. Don't kill me.

Anyway, for the past few years Abercrombie & Fitch has been pinpointed as the object of conformism and a store that sets up an "ideal" look or lifestyle for young teenagers. People cringe at the idea of Abercrombie & Fitch. I mean, when has one season not looked like the last? When will the moose or the words "ABERCROMBIE & FITCH" be taken off of the garments? Never. Why? For the consumers! If the company, including its other chains Hollister and Ruehl, is making a lot of money from the same shit, then why change it? Polos, tanks, short bubble skirts, cargo pants, and logo-infested T-shirts and hoodies...they're all working! Nonetheless, I pick up good basics and hoodies to wear to the supermarket here and the quality isn't so bad. Besides, every store/designer promotes a lifestyle or unique look and it's a shame we only have to draw out this company. Plus the ads have some pretty spicy men.

Sometimes the consumers/money is more important than the fashion and clothing itself (ahem. connection to Juicy Couture?). I get a little disappointed when I see a rich chav sporting Chanel and huge desginers in the ugliest, monogram-loving way ever. I could imagine Coco rolling in her grave seeing people sport her items that way. Thank God only the more chic people own the haute couture items. Anyway, I think "Damn! Not fair! If I had the money I could totally buy such better items." But, I think that goes for a lack of education in any field. For example, I'd buy a Sony T.V. after hearing that it's better than other manufacturers, despite having no knowledge about the actual chips and circuits inside. If I ever became a desginer, I think I'd make my clothing exclusive and special not because of its price, but because of the process needed to purchase my clothing. Membership would be required and in order to obtain membership, each person would have to send in a portfolio of their style and how they would wear my pieces. I mean as a designer, I would want my works executed with great sophistication and luxury on the streets, not my sunglasses worn with PINK sweats, Uggs, and a Juicy Couture bag. We've all see this combo. Don't deny it.

Oh my god, Patchwork Uggs! Jesus Christ someone hand me a trash can before I barf on my pet dog's grave.

Wang #15

Another icon has got to be Jackie Kennedy Onassis.

She embodied elegance and sophistication through simplicity, something I strive to apply everyday. And she popped out this fine man...

Damn the curse of the Kennedys!

Wang #14- 39 Days and Counting

I absolutely cannot wait for this movie to come out! This movie will be iconic. Of course, I`ve been a huge SATC for years and I absolutely adore the fashion. The movie might even have a sequel as well! It fascinates me so much how Carrie can wear so many different looks and actually wear them well. I especially love her outfit with the knee high socks. Gosh, I might just go out and buy some.
