Let's Talk COUTURE

The only other thing that gets my heart pumping this fast is the treadmill. I live and breathe for Couture and lucky for me (and you) the Spring 2011 Couture shows have hit gay ole Paris once again. Cue the high-pitched squeaking sound. Eeek! Okay, okay, now that I've gotten that out of my system here are my absolute favorites...

Christian Dior

 Elie Saab

Park Here

Yesterday, for the first time in months it seemed just warm enough that a scarf and multiple layers of sweaters didn't seem necessary, so Jamie and I took to the local park between grocery shopping and the gym to do a little shoot. The outfit had mixed reviews, judging by passing giggles I got from the Brooklyn Youth as school let out and I paraded the streets in my vintage '50's number and hat. Hey, I liked it! I hope you do too.

Milan: Boys of Fall Twenty Eleven

Menswear for Fall '11 is hitting Milan right now! Usually I'm not much for the men of fashion, but I decided to have a look just to educate myself and boy, oh boy, oh boys was I interested! Here are a few of my favorites thus far...

The Outing Club

Ah! It's a new year and again I have taken way too long to post. New Year's resolution? To keep procrastination at a minimum. Okay, okay and maybe hit the gym like my mama done said. Not that I really believe in resolutions, I like to look at the New Year more as more of a fresh start rather than a wish list of things I'll say I'll do and never realistically accomplish. What I'm really aiming for is more photo shoots, to get my ass back on that sewing machine and maintain a happy, healthy attitude. That seems reasonable, right? With all of that said, here is a little shoot I did yesterday with my brother... I hope you like it!
Happy New Year!
love, bits
