To go along with this weeks playlist and colder weather - I've paired up songs with clothes! All the songs have to do with body parts, and the clothes are meant to cover that part up (lol this is not supposed to sound perverted). Anyways - Enjoy!
1. Arms - Seabear
2. Bubble Toes - Jack Johnson
3. Collarbone - Fujiya & Miyagi
4. Four Left Feet - The Ditty Bops

My friends and I had a party last weekend for no good reason and I offered to bring a cake (its pretty much expected of me now). I asked what it should look like a someone said a smurf (I think they were joking) but I actually did make it lol! I tried to dye in inside blue, but it was a yellow cake, so the inside was looked green haha but it was still good!
...love that song by the White Stripes, and yes fall is here! I love the brisk weather, the colors, new clothes (I'm actually going fall/homecoming dress shopping this weekend). So to kick off the new season here are some autumn things:
Decorated cookies from Eleni's Bakery in New York (she ships too!)
Some pictures I took of nature last year:and finally here is the week's playlist - Autumn-esque of course!
1. Time - Ben Folds 2. Save Me - Aimee Mann 3. Title and Registration - Death Cab for Cutie 4. The Minnow and the Trout - A Fine Frenzy 5. New Slang - The Shins 6. Cat Piano - Seabear 7. Where is My Love? - Cat Power 8. By Heart - Sylvie Lewis 9. Wolves - Josh Ritter 10. Kingdom Come - Coldplay
As, most of you can tell by now - I am very inspired my movies. When I saw the Ralph Lauren SS08 Show, I could not help but to think of Audrey Hepburn in "My Fair Lady". The blacks and whites, frills and exaggerated hats just immediately brought that movie to mind. My favorite scene is at the horse race and EVERYONE is in black, white and grey (here is a link to a clip of that scene) and each woman has a unique hat on. Also, the background of the runway was painted like a horse race, as was the backdrop to the horse race in the movie. I don't know exactly if I would wear each of the RL dresses, for they look to old for me (except the simple black one) but they sure do serve as an inspiration! No wonder practically every girls fashion icon is Audrey!
Marc Jacobs (one of the most BIZARRE shows ever!) and Tracy Reese also caught onto the trend:
1. Sunny Sunday - Leona Naess 2. Sunday Night is Fair - French Kiss 3. Tuesday Morning - Michelle Branch 4. Tuesday - Telepopmusik 5. Waiting For Wednesday - Lisa Loeb 6. How Can It Be - Forever Thursday 7. Friday Night - Lily Allen 8. Saturday Morning - Eels 9. Saturday Night - Kaiser Chiefs 10. (Looking For) The Heart of Saturday Night - Madeleline Peyroux
Sorry for the spaced out posts lately - I will get better about it, I promise!
Thanks to Cotton Candy's Whimsical Delights Blog - I have discovered the fabulous Tokyo Spring Fashion Week. Among its unique designers, I discovered a new favorite : Mayumi Sasaki for Lyrics M. The runway was all covered in moss and the girls looked like they were dressed to have a picnic in the English countryside. I loved the straw hats, faded colors, delicate fabrics and unique shapes. The collection also reminded me a LOT Marie Antoinette when she had built her village and spent her time frolicking around! Next spring, I'm thinking vintage straw hats, lace, khaki, and hippie-ish/English countryside touches.
Rag & Bone even caught onto the trend:
Also I read about this play in Teen Vogue and the poster captured my attention and reminds me of this look I'm talking about:
1. On the Table - A.C. Newman 2. Let's Go - Little Miss Sunshine Soundtrack 3. Transparent Things - Fujiya & Miyagi 4. O Pamela - Nouvelle Vague 5. If Looks Could Kill - Camera Obscura 6. I Won't Be Left - Tegan and Sara 7. Slow Cheetah - Red Hot Chili Peppers 8. Yours to Keep - Teddybears 9. All the Way - Frank Sinatra 10. The Angels Hung Around - Rilo Kiley
If you love Garden State or other Zack Braff soundtracks, then you will love Searbear's debut disk, The Ghost That Carried Us Away. I love the violin and romantic feel to it, yet it sounds modern and mystical (not in a new age-y way! no!) - some even harvesty (love the odd adjectives?). It makes you wanna skip around or walk quietly through the woods at night. I recommend the ENTIRE CD - you wont be sorry!
and who could resist a band called Seabear - how cute, right?
