The search for animal chin

Those crazy kids at Finnish label CTRL just sent out their latest lookbook for SS12 and the tomboy in me thinks it's pretty damn awesome. The Animal Chin Collection came announced with a description in engrish, and I had to nod my head when they boldly proclaimed it their "strongest collection to date." Yep, sure is! The boyish cuts and micro-prints (I need those yellow cheetah pants) have done did it for me. Check out the full mens and girls lookbooks here.


Man, halloween can be a stumper. I have a lot of awesome ideas, but am limited due to a combo of laziness and budget. A few of my ideas though rely on the "hair" being the main selling point of the costume, like an ice cream cone or dandelion. In the process of researching, I rediscovered the Spring '08 show from japanese designer mercibeaucoup, where models donned puffy pastel hairpieces in shapes like bows, stars, and bunny ears. I'm definitely inspired.. whether or not that will motivate me to go all Edward Scissorhands on a wig is yet to be seen!

You know when you're walking on ice-covered sidewalks in the winter and you carefully plot out each step to choose the baldest spots on the concrete? Yeah, that sucks. You know what doesn't? Clear heels. It's like walking on ice...without walking on ice.
