"Maybe i would become a mermaid... i would live in the swirling blue-green currents, doing exotic underwater dances for the fish, kissed by sea anemones, caressed by seaweed shawls. I would have a doliphin friend. He would have merry eyes and thick flesh of a god. My fingernails would be tiny shells and my skin would be like jade with light shining through it. I would never have to come back up"

The other day I went to Bloomingdale's, and just about died in the Marc by Marc Jacob's section.
Porquoi? (Why?) Parce que.... (Because...) The awesome colors The splashy designs The mix of fun/playful/creative The lines, I'm not sure why, his designs just seem very linear to me The cleaness of his designs The font...yes, the actual Marc Jacob's font...I love it
And here is the video of the fabulous Spring 2010 collection! I am loving the colors and mismatched patterns, the models all look like they come from an amazingly sophisticated kindergarden class in a dr. seuss book...the creative energy is absolutely incredible.
I should say that I definitely think the newer versions of them are better. With more elastic at the bottom so it's runched, and in capri style...I think the pants are just too much fabric falling everywhere.
There's that one book by Sarah Dessen, where one of the characters is constantly going "sah-wooon" when she talks about falling in love. That word has always seemed so awesome to me, so dramatic, so extravagant...so when I found out about the American graffiti artist, "Swoon" I had to look more into her, and when I saw her work...I was blown away.
I love these cutouts!
The tiny details in this picture are incredible!
Isn't it incredible how realistic this face looks? The emotion in the eyes is so striking.
Also, this is a fabulous video on an installation she did at Honey Space. I've literally watched this video everyday for a week now, I love looking at the flickering candles, the beautiful wall art, just the way everything is arranged is so amazing.
I can't quite remember when I first started obsessing over jumpers and overalls. I remember wearing overalls ALL THE TIME as a kid, I even had a ridiculous pair in first grade that were pink and corderoy. crazy.
But more recently, a more sophisticated version of these kiddy favorites have been appearing all over! I'm still looking to buy a jumper, but I did find a pair of amazing Chip & Pepper overalls this summer that I finally wore to school today. It's so exciting to wear something nobody else is walking down the halls in!!
So now instead of doing my math (ughhh), I'm jumper shopping! Here's a few of my favorites....
A girl who likes to love and live and laugh and sing and dance and wear glitter and stay up too late and watch movies and read and write and eat ice cream and travel and shop and design and wear mismatched socks...this is her adventure.

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"
