This week I thought I would share a runway video of one of my favorite designers, once again the great Mr. McQueen. He was known for his incredibly theatrical shows, and here is a video of by far my favorite collection of his. It's from a show called "It's Only A Game," and was inspired by the life size chess battle at the end of J.K Rowling's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. "The game" is an East vs. West competition, the east being Japan and the West being the United States of America. The designs are heavily influenced by the design patterns of each country, and was an outlet for McQueen to express his love of Japan. So here you are: Alexander McQueen s/s 2005. 

Sacrifical Move.

Happy Summer everyone!

I don't know what you all do with your summer vacations, but I can tell you what I do: make do with what's around you. Which is why when I wanted to do something fun, I invited a friend over, we dressed up, and had fun with some glowsticks leftover from an old party. I quite enjoyed some of the photos from our evening, shown below.

Green blouse: Kimchi Blue, Black segmented skirt: Topshop London, Pearl bracelet: David Yurman, Studded pumps: Steve Madden.

Black suede and patent leather gold studded Steve Madden mary jane pumps. Nail Lacquer: OPI on Collins Avenue, OPI South Beach Collection. Surrounded by glowstick bracelets.

Just a fun summer night look I thought you would enjoy!
