“Nude”

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Long time, no post.

Over at my regular blog I’m focus-monthing and November is cleaning shit out.  This includes old bookmarks.  I had a folder full of links for a post (now terribly out of date) regarding the “nude” nail and shoe trend and how shitty it was that “nude” meant “beige.”  So I found a bunch of great nail colours that would be skin-tones for various awesome ladies, bookmarked them about a million years ago and forgot about it as I got to busy to fashion-blog.  But! Since I want to clear out my bookmarks, you get an out-dated post. Woo! But I like the idea still.  Let’s just jump in.

Grace Jones. Revlon’s uncomfortably named “Hot for Chocolate” and the J. Renee Delisa in T. Moro.

Milla Jovovich.  Zoya’s “Tasha” and the Enzo Angiolini Studded in Light Pink Leather.

Rosario Dawson. Essie’s “Very Structured” and the LAUREN by Ralph Lauren Zabrina in Polo Tan Kidskin.

Christina Ricci. Sally Hansen’s “Sheer Me Now” and the Baby Phat Chance in Taupe Patent.

There. Those bookmarks have been put to use.

Maybe soon I’ll get back into this.

Seen About Town: Wearing what you damn well please

Friday, June 11th, 2010

I have a notebook from the Dollar Tree that says “Fashionista” on it and is the silliest pink. This is where my commuting sketches go now, as it is perfectly appropriate.


I see this girl pretty regularly and I think she was dressed up that day. Hella rocked it though.


She made her train, by the way.

Then/Now: Socks & Heels

(though it’s being treated as a new trend, socks and heels have been noted on catwalks since the Spring/Summer 2008 show, at least)
