Happy Halloween!

30 Oct

I know, everyone’s been talking about Halloween for the whole week. Especially here where there’s the WeHo Halloween Parade and all sorts of craziness. I hope you’re enjoying the dressing up, the candy, the partying, and all that fun stuff!

Here’s a quick look at my costume:

I’ve been in a vintage mood these days, anything from the 1920’s-1950’s is really catching my attention. There’s a sense of poise, grace, and ease in the fashion of those eras….it’s like Old Hollywood glamour. Instead of the overt sexuality that litters the LA scene like snow on a winter’s day, it’s kind of nice to have options that’s more conservative and can be sensual at the same time.

I wanna be like those vintage gals from the blogosphere…Ranna, Keiko Lynn, and Sally Jane.  They’re inspirational with their styles, shops, and photos!

What Costume are you Wearing?

30 Oct

“Us men designers, we make costumes. Women designers make clothes” – from DVF interview

In light of Halloween, I thought it best to write about costumes and what better place to find costumes than at the Haute Couture Fashion Shows? Christian Dior has been a favorite of mine for couture, though I will probably never afford these items…but from the pictures and the stylings…it’s amazing! I mean, seriously, how can you create such beautiful garments? It’s like a work of art!

In the Fall 2009 Dior show, it seems John Galliano has taken inspiration from vintage lingerie and 1950s tailoring. In some of the photos, it’s like the models are missing a top…or a bottom for that matter. But in the end…it’s all about the lovely clothes and the wonderful details!
