The Outnet, the designer discount site by Natalie Massenet (founder of net-a-porter) is scheduled for launch in April 2009! The site will feature "a lineup of more than 200 luxury brands including Christian Louboutin, Alberta Ferretti, Chloe, Oscar de la Renta, Diane von Furstenberg, and Herve Leger when the proverbial doors open, a mix of merchandise from past seasons, classic pieces, and bestsellers resurrected from designers’ archives, all with average discounts of 40 to 60 percent." Though no specific launch date has been announced, The Outnet is now taking members!

What a perfect thing to look at on a Monday morning. I think I just may be in love. White & silver, embellished dots, gold chain. This bag was made for me, dears!
I totally apologize for the delayed response to all of your lovely messages. I am having the most busy/stressful/no time to breath start to the week ever. Between getting multiple cups of coffee and earl gray tea, studying like a mad woman, and trips to the fabric store there has been little time for blogging. I have an economics test tonight and a textiles test tomorrow. Oh the life of a fashion student. Wish me luck!

Winston Chmielinski's figures are landscapes: visual metaphors that reveal an alternate significance only in the eyes of a willing signifier. The disconnect between what is perceived and what is seen, or in the case of Winston’s portraits, the self that is reflected, and the self that is felt, can only be sutured back together in works that first fragment the physical plane—a concentration of color in one face, a plague of shadows on another—in hoping to catch (through these intentioned cracks) a fleeting glimpse of the unsheathed self. If one can chart out a surface’s entirety, even as an assemblage of seemingly incongruous pieces, will he thus render it wholly inconsequential?

I cannot deny it. am a true girly girl at heart. Love stories, hair bows, jewels, tea parties, lipstick- cheesy as it sounds, I love it all. I think that personal style is directly represented by people's interests, hobbies and outlook on life. It continues to amaze me and inspire me of how different this is from one individual to another.
On a side note: today I had a meeting about this west coast study tour where we will be visiting Los Angelous and San Francisco. I have been beyond stoked about this trip, but the meeting today really got me excited. Especially once I found out that a trip to the American Apparel factory will be in store. I can't wait to see firsthand how the production works.

I had been looking for a men's watch exactly like this for forever. I wanted it to look vintage-y (like this one), metal links (like this one) and to not be $500 + (like this one). I found this at UO for only $42! Of course I had to shell out an extra $10 to have it sized as it was about 10 times too large for my bony wrist, but since it was such a bargain in the first place I didn't really care.

As I suspected, it has gotten very cold, once again. Honestly, I am completely okay with this. I do not think my winter clothing have been able to be used to their full potential in such a short amount of time. Plus, there is nothing better than putting on your favorite ugly sweater.
PS- My current camera is completely falling apart. I will be getting a new digital one soon, 400$ or less. Any suggestions?
