daze off.

oaaafff. i have had a busy fall so I was super thankful to have 2 days off in a row. here's what i did..

i had a dyeing date with my friend maureen. she helped me dye all my silk chiffon and organza for my thesis. the blues turned out beautiful, there are more blue-green gradation tones that you don't see in the picture.

we redyed this one, so it turned out more vibrant. think ruby-red. 
the color palette seems a little primary here, but in context they are layered in long silhouettes along with silver or navy chantilly lace and transparent latex. 

oops. i baked this deliciousness too. parmesan and cauliflower cake/quiche

my friend/star lester has another amazing story in the december issue of elle. i LOOOOVE this spread. it's for real WO.MEN. (as she would say.) there are so many showstoppers in this story. the leopard look with cartier ring and givenchy shoes, the westwood look, this versace picnic set, the ysl jumper with the moschino clutch (BUY right in your face!), and ALL of the hats (especially the black croc- it's everything!) so i ate my delicious baked good with some arugula and enjoyed lester's spread.

 lula sometimes falls asleep standing up. so cute.  she need atleast 20 hours of sleep a day or she just isn't herself... fernando can barely hold open his eyes either.

 i never considered myself a leopard person. but i am really feeling the head to toe leopard. it's so cunt. not sure how it would translate on my man body...but it's chic none the less. 

anything with a witchy vibe automatically gets my vote. 


am i wearing this yet?


i absolutely love riccardo tisci. i think his designs are just what we need each season, his techniques are sick, his aesthetic is right on, and he gives every time. there was a recent story in W about him which you must read; i just think he is EVERYTHING. 


to be a fashion illustrator you need to have charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent. miss tara dougans has all of that and more. wb. 
i'm living for her illustrations!
