Paper or Plastic?

I never thought I'd see the day when the bags I carry groceries and tomorrow's lunch would be dipped in leather and deemed chic. End times? Perhaps. I spotted the corner store shopper early 2011. It was designed by LA based designer/art director Hassan Rahim for Cast of Vices and it retails for just under $200. I think it's a pretty ill handbag, but I wouldn't oppose going down to the local bodega and filling it up with a 6 pack goodies. Purchase at

I've been obsessing over the Jil Sander bag since seeing it on the Men's Fall/Winter runway earlier this year. I browsed the net for a knockoff something similar and found some good contenders. It's a  gnarly bag, great for storing all types of things (if you only knew what I was thinking)... I also saw some lame interesting DIY bags. I'm now convinced Jil Sander wants to encourage the crafty cathy in us all as evidenced by this other very popular DIY. Unfortunately my crafty cathy has broken both arms, so yeah. You can get your hands on the actual bag for a cool 630 smackaroos at

Fall 2012 Couture Style Stars

Vika Gazinskaya, Miroslava Duma, Ulyana Sergeenko, Elena Perminova, Fall Couture 2012 by Mr. Newton

I feel like there needs to be one of those style quizzes to accompany this photo, "Which Couture style star are you?" or something along those lines. I can't seem to decide whose getup I dig the most at this moment.  Which style star are you?

I'm a jumper girl. Mostly because I like to stuff my face with foods that have strangers running up to me with questions about when I'm due. NAGL when you're not really expecting. Jumpers take care of that. You can literally have your cake, pie, cool whip, candy bar, soda, beer, wine and eat it too! Now, imagine all of that with a little bit of leather...

Not quite the kink I know you had in mind (not judging), but leatheralls! Get. IN. These were seen at Phillip Lim's 2013 resort presentation, and yes they are the I really dig how they're styled, and I will be experimenting very soon...

Not Stripper Shoes

I haven't blogged in so long that this feels sort of foreign. I don't know what to say. Really, I don't. So instead of saving this to my many many drafts due my lack of intelligent things to say about pretty much anything, I'll go ahead and tell you about my latest obsession, clear stripper shoes. We all saw this trend emerge on the runways of spring 2012, and I'll admit I wasn't really digging it. I just couldn't picture my big ass feet in clear shoes. It also took me back to 'the summer of 94 (I think) when I damn there died because my 2nd pair of  smelly jellies had fallen apart as I was running down the stairs. I'm sure I'll see that story on Spike TV real soon. These shoes have grown on me. I think my big ass feet could be happy in them after all.  Peep below.
