Everything you need to know about this photo is self-explanatory.

“In fact, Donatella’s (Versace) inspiration for the Spring Summer 2010 was Alice In Wonderland, as it just happens we’ll get Tim Burton adaption of the famous book same time Versace Spring Summer 2010 hits the store.”

I just love the pastels, prints, and the geometric shapes (not to mention, those daring, sexy cutouts!) Donatella  have come up with this summer. If you haven’t already, you can also see the fashion show with just a click of a button below. 😉

Video feedback: I think some of the pieces of the collection could’ve been showcased with curvier models. And speaking of models, I don’t know if it were shoes or something, but some of these models cant walk! They looked stiff and somewhat unnatural. 😦

Ahh yesss….Finally it’s that time of year again, summer. And what really put the icing on the cake is that I’ll be out of school for four months! New York, here I come!

I was making my rounds around my fellow bloggers blogsites, and I stumbled upon this on stopitrightnow’s blog on blogspot. She even painted her nails which were inspired by the gorgeous MIU MIU’s Shoes.

Cover Story: 2010 marks the ninth year of the Affordable Art Fair New York City and there were over 70 world-renowned galleries that attended the showcase from all reaches of the globe including London, Vietnam, Toronto, Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, and San Francisco. The annual event served as a casual venue for new and established collectors to browse through paintings, drawings, sculptures, video, photography, and limited edition prints. The great thing about this particular fair is that it was developed with the younger art buyer in mind, so the setting is always approachable, and the contemporary art featured ranges in price from $100 – $10,000.

The event kicked off on May 5th, and ran through May 9th. A number of fashion-inspired pieces were featured in the exhibit, some of which are pictured on the fair’s website (http://www.aafnyc.com/). The collection was such a wonderfully curated mix of emerging artists that I spent over three hours making my way around the fair, browsing and speaking with the various gallery representatives. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about some of the most promising talent on the art scene, and 75% of the artists features sell their pieces for under $5,000.

In two weeks, school will be over. In two weeks, Summer vacation will begin. In two weeks, I will be moving out. Two weeks, why cant you come any faster?

I guess I can hang in there.

There’s three things that I love about this: Strong Shoulders, Rompers (Preferably Jumpers), And that fashionista that can pull it off! Chic.

Wow, how ironic. It reminds me of my previous post, ‘Fashion 360’ on how fashion comes back over time. When I saw this, I had to post this on here. They said it was the other culture and world events whether it was economy, that the culture of fashion mirrored America’s journey and now — expressing our experience of a moment in time.
