hollow as O in god

i do not expect you to get me, i know i can be complicated, i don’t get along with many people.
when people ask me what my favorite color is i answer grey. because it is. i know it’s a shade, not a color, but it remains the “color” that i like the most.
i don’t like the thought of growing older, i don’t want this body i’m living in to become old and useless, although i’ve always felt more mature for my age.
I find music the way to express my feelings, Im not into Pop, or RnB. I prefair music with more meaning.
I like walking alone into the night. Listening music. Smokin fags.
People that hurt or betray me don't realy get my forgiveness. I find it difficult to respect older people just because of their age. In my opinion Respect is something you gain, and not something you demant.
For me Love= to pain, who ever you love will betray you. Im considering my self done with relationships.
I find my self really open minded. If someone doesn't do something that can physicaly or mentaly harm me i don't see a reason to not like them. I trust people too much and thats why i usualy end up hurting.

A close reading of. Taylor Swift’s we are never getting back together

0:00 — I am way too old to be listening to songs by Taylor Swift.

0:02 — …Seriously, I’m gettin’ too old for this shit. I’m so Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon right now. (…On an unrelated note, my favorite Danny Glover quote from the Lethal Weapon movies is this: “…It’s just been revoked.” Why even say that after shooting someone? Who are you talking to? The dead guy? Yourself? But I digress.)

0:05 — Also, I am well aware that I am only finally listening to this song a year or so after it was released. This is what happens when you get old. It’ll happen to you. I only just heard “Call Me Maybe” for the first time a month ago. Catchy song. I predict that it’ll be a hit.

0:07 — Okay, so we are all well aware that this song is about Jake Gyllenhaal, I guess. So that’s nice. Let’s just agree to know that we all know that and I move on. On an unrelated note, I used to write about movies and shit for a living, and trying to spell the Gyllenhaal family name was the bane of my existence. Also: “Scarlett Johansson.” That one was a surprising pain in the ass to spell. There are many ways to spell “Johansson” wrong.

0:15 — I guess I should pay attention to the actual song.

0:20 — You know that hipster glasses are over as a concept when Taylor Swift starts wearing them.

0:37 — So far, as revenge songs go, this is no “Cry Me a River.” I am convinced that “Cry Me a River” is what caused Britney Spears to lose her shit for a decade. Have you seen the live version of that song? It has a FULL GOSPEL CHOIR. If someone released a number one song with a FULL GOSPEL CHOIR about how I was a lying, cheating ho-bag who cried fake tears, I’d lose my shit too. Just like Britney did.

0:40 — Taylor Swift’s walls seem to have woven yarn all over them. I don’t know if this is an actual trendy design thing that people do, or if it’s just for the video. I don’t have a joke here, I just wanted to emphasize that I notice things like yarn walls in videos.

0:48 — AAAAH. THE BAND. AAAH.

0:55 — No-oooo…

1:00 — YOU GO TALK TO YOUR FRIENDS TALK TO MY FRIENDS TALK TO ME. …Catchy! But Jesus Christ, the band.

1:03 — The guy in the bear costume.

1:04 — I can’t even…

I mean; I’m just sayin’.

1:10 — “…Like, ever.” I don’t know why, but when Taylor sang this, this is the thought that automatically popped into my head: “Well, so much for Western Civilization.” Not completely sure why I thought that. But then, I don’t want to over-analyze these things too much.

1:12 — I just realized that this video is all one extended tracking shot; like the video for “Stay” by Lisa Loeb and Nine Stories. Taylor Swift: the Lisa Loeb of a new generation.

1:20 — “And you/ Would hide away and find your peace of mind/ With some/ Indie record that’s much cooler than mine.” Not totally su-uuure if I would be bringing this up if I was Taylor Swift. In addition to being stunningly bitchy, it’s… not really a good area-thing for her to bring up; her music’s lack of coolness like that. Also, so what was her hypothetical boyfriend supposed to do in said situation? Get in a fight with Taylor Swift, then go home and listen to a… Taylor Swift album? I mean, his only real options were to listen to something that wasn’t Taylor Swift, and most things are cooler than Taylor Swift, so, um, yes.

1:49 — I feel like Jake Gyllenhaal is really justified in doing whatever in retaliation for this song. I mean, maybe Taylor’s in the right, maybe he’s in the right, who knows. But still, once a song is released about you, you’re totally justified in striking back with — in his case — a shitty indie movie with a thinly characterized bitchy character named Swaylor Twift or something. So. I look forward to that happening.

1:51 — No. The guy in the bear suit again. Just no.

2:01 — Wait. The guy next to the guy in the bear suit is worse. Much worse.

He’s the worst person ever.

2:15 — Aw. He gave her his scarf. That was nice. Yes, I’m on the side of the asshole boyfriend in this video.

2:16 — How much longer do I have to write about this song for? One minute and twenty seconds, apparently.

2:22 — The time before when I heard this song, Taylor Swift was doing this song live for New Year’s, and she did the terrible spoken word part live too: “So he calls me up and he’s like ISTILLLUVYOUUU.” It’d be really hard to convince me to do that live. It was awkward. It was embarrassing. I hope they paid her a lot for doing it.

2:36 — Never say never Taylor.

2:38 — Aaaah! The band! This video is like brief seconds of bliss between the band appearing.

2:45 — I’ll say something nice about Taylor here. I like her enthusiasm. I like that she’s not afraid to dance dorkily in her own video. I like that about her. Really. That is not sarcasm.

3:03 — Is this video going to end with a twist where they do get back together???

3:04 — Nope.

3:14 — Well, that’s over. Or almost over. HEY TAYLOR WINKED AT ME.

Right. The rest of the video is just buildings and things. In summation, this song is okay, but I think Taylor Swift is crazy, but then, 20-year-old people are pretty much automatically crazy, so there’s that. Also, Taylor might not be… that smart. Or maybe she’s sneaky-smart. I dunno. All I know is that she dated John Mayer; and John Mayer hit on my friend Jessica once, and Jessica said the process of talking to John Mayer was “excruciating,” and that he was the “dumbest, dumbest person.” Which must also mean that Taylor Swift is mildly not so smart herself, if she dated him and all. Which means that Taylor Swift is sort of dumb. But that’s not a joke. I need a joke with which to end this essay. I don’t… have a joke here? Um. Well, insert standard expected joke here about me never ever doing this again. …Like, ever.

Balenciaga Menswear Spring 2012

Balenciaga 2012 Spring Menswear

Nicolas Ghesquière has spent seasons making sportswear sportier and pushing ever farther into menswear’s future. For Spring, he threw on the brakes, temporally and conceptually: He reintroduced the Balenciaga suit. It can’t surprise any label fans that he can cut a very good one. These were two-button jobs, slim in the waist, through the arm, and down the leg, in wool-mohair blends. They were shown, like almost every look, with white turtlenecks as layering pieces for a slightly sixties spin.

Evergreen standards reappeared as is Ghesquière’s wont, this time in vivid new colors: bombers in teal neoprene, jewel-tone jeans, and reversible leather-nylon jackets in contrast shades. Color-blocking of a more direct variety appeared on cotton knits, laser-cut for added sharpness. You got a hint of that, too, in leather belts that zippered on to (and fully off of, if you like) sweaters and tops. Here they were left dangling half unzipped (an analogue, almost, to the flyaway shirttails from the house’s Spring 2011 women’s collection). It’s a done-undone look no man of the sixties would have considered. A reminder, in other words, that despite a neater, tidier season, you’re still at Balenciaga. 


After a million Years…

Yeah ive been away for a long time i dont really care to be honest. After several months of emotional roller coaster, i think im ready to get back to the Tumblr train. do expect more things because they are coming soon. :)

"I can’t imagine living in seclusion… The beautiful thing about New York is, you have to expose yourself to other people the minute you step outside the door. There is no choice. And I love that.” - Sarah Jessica Parker

Be your own Fashion Guru: How to find your own sense of style.

Don’t panic if the catwalk shows and the new styles flying into the shops have left you confused by what you should be wearing.

My new book reveals that the secret to looking fabulous is not about slavishly following fashion or looking like a supermodel, it’s about finding your own style.

I’ve realised that anyone can be “in fashion” simply by following the rules of the season.

.

Jeans and a black dress will take you so far but accessories maketh the woman

But style is personal. There is no herd to follow. There are no rules. There are no seasons.

Style comes from within, from knowing who you are and who you want to be; not from wanting to be somebody else, or wanting to be thinner, shorter, taller, prettier.

Many of the most stylish women in the world have not been great beauties - think Lauren Hutton with her gap-toothed smile or Barbra Streisand and her Grecian nose - but have drawn from an enormous amount of self-confidence.

They made us think they were beautiful simply by believing it themselves.

All this sounds great in theory, but finding your own style can be a daunting prospect.

Which is why I’ve come up with some style basics that will have you looking - and, most importantly, feeling - fashion fabulous in no time.

Take control: You can be your own fashion guru

How many items in your wardrobe do you actually wear?

How many of those make you feel good about yourself? And how many times have you looked in that wardrobe and said: “I have nothing to wear!”?

Your wardrobe should contain only amazing choices - it is much easier to be inspired when you see five remarkable pieces than when you see 25 pieces and 20 of those are unremarkable.

Pick key items and get rid of the rest, even if it is the “must-have” item of the season, or you spent a week’s salary on it in 1999, or you wore it every day of your teenage years and “can’t bear to part with it”.

If it doesn’t look good on you now, it shouldn’t be there.

Start by throwing out anything you no longer wear or that doesn’t look good on you. Be ruthless.

It’s easier said than done, so make yourself a deal: for every 20 items you chuck, you can buy one killer piece.

When you’re buying, buy the right size.

Don’t buy a smaller one because you’re planning on losing weight, or because you don’t like the idea that you’re a size 16.

And be wary of bargains.

Paying £100 for a pair of jeans that cost 200Euro is a great deal.

But if you are never going to wear them, don’t need them, or don’t even particularly like them, that’s a very expensive deal.

Steer clear of trends.

If everyone is wearing bright yellow mini-dresses but you don’t look good in yellow or minidresses, why buy one? Wear what suits you and what makes you comfortable.

Comfortable doesn’t have to mean boring. Don’t play it too safe.

You should wake up in the morning and be inspired by what is in your wardrobe: 20 black skirts tend to offer little inspiration; one white beaded vintage skirt offers a lot.

THE BARE BONES

Now you’ve cleared out your wardrobe, it’s time to invest in the bare bones, if you don’t own them already.

These are essential staples that go with almost anything and never go out of style - a blank canvas that you can layer on to.

The Little Black Dress: Popularised by Coco Chanel, this is the ultimate blank canvas. Slimming and flattering, it’s simple enough to make you look effortlessly stylish, yet sophisticated enough to make you look endlessly elegant.

A Classic White Shirt: It has a crisp simplicity that makes it practical and unpretentious. Jackie Onassis paired hers with jeans, Uma Thurman went for black trousers, and Audrey Hepburn teamed hers with a long skirt.

Cashmere Cardigan or Round-neck: Cashmere instantly imbues luxury when worn over anything, but is also incredibly sexy when worn alone, a la Marilyn Monroe.

A Trench Coat: Not just for rainy days, a trench goes with almost anything. Best of all, it makes you instantly mysterious. Wear with big sunglasses to really channel your inner spy.

Denim: Jeans are the most versatile item. Simple and practical, sexy and perfect, rebellious and elegant, they can dress anything down and make even the most uptight items look relaxed.

A Man’s Watch: Women’s watches tend to change according to trends, but a classic man’s watch is timeless and looks great on a woman’s wrist. It makes a statement and breaks the rules in an unexpected but subtle way.

Diamonds: You can’t go wrong here. Perfect for day or night, casual or dressy, winter or summer, with other jewels, or not. Fake is fine.

Ballet Flats: For driving, mad dashes for flights, the first day of the sales, or any occasion when you have to give your heels the boot in the name of practicality.

A High-Heeled Pump: Sometimes you want outrageous, impractical, bold shoes. But sometimes, a reliable classic black high-heeled pump that won’t clash with your dress, or prospective in-laws, is what’s required.

A Great Bag (or four): Statement bags are great, but you also need the classics: a tote or shoulder bag for day and carrying almost everything; a clutch for night and carrying around almost nothing; a medium-sized handbag, with a chain-link strap, for those times in between; and, treat yourself to a must-have - Chanel, Louis Vuitton Speedy, Gucci’s Jackie O, or the Hermes Birkin, just because …

THE DRAMA

Now you have your basics, it’s time to inject your own sense of style with some truly fantastic pieces - a decadent, oversized cocktail ring, a vintage beaded dress that fits you perfectly, a leopard-print coat - spend your money on these one-of-a-kind, dramatic pieces.

Don’t just go crazy for the trends. If you do happen to fall in love with a trend, buy it now but wait a few years until it is “out of style” to wear it.

The best time to buy is when you are travelling - something exotic that nobody else will have back home and can usually be picked up for next to nothing, because while fashion may be expensive, style doesn’t have to be.

Ironically, it is often the people with less money who seem to understand style best.

Maybe because they cannot slavishly follow trends, or because they consider purchases more carefully, or perhaps because they perfect the art of mixing expensive items with cheaper finds.

So check out flea markets, H&M, Uniqlo and vintage bargains (cheapest of all when “borrowed” from your mum’s wardrobe).

As well as mixing Mango and Marc Jacobs, think about other unusual juxtapositions.

Unpredictable is what is going to make you look different.

Try diamonds with ethnic beads, stripes and checks, leather and lace, masculine with feminine.

It takes time and trial to perfect but these “imperfect” mixes are what style is about.

THE FINISHING TOUCHES

Basics and drama will take you so far, but accessories maketh the woman. Start with shoes.

Blahnik, Louboutin, Vivier, Choo and Alaia can all be depended upon for a perfect quality shoe.

Even if you have to save for years to afford a single pair, do it.

Perfect shoes deserve perfect feet - chipped polish and cracked heels are not a good look.

Toe cleavage is often overlooked but it matters - two cracks only should be on show (i.e. only showing the divide between your first three toes).

Don’t go too high; if you can’t walk, you will look ridiculous.

And be wary of teaming very high heels with a very short skirt - hardly anyone can pull this off without looking like a tramp.

Other accessories should be equally carefully chosen - they pull an outfit together and tell the world how cool, elegant and sophisticated you are.

Think Jackie O and her sunglasses or Audrey Hepburn and her scarf.

Choose accessories as you would friends, seeking out the ones that complement you, make you feel confident, and stick by you through ups and downs, men, and extra pounds.

The key is keeping it personal - your grandmother’s pendant or a bracelet from Mexico - and keeping it tasteful.

Think big necklace or big earrings, not both.

Your wardrobe of finishing touches, should also include a good tailor who can make anything look expensive by making it fit you perfectly.

So get them to revamp older items, shorten trousers but keep the same finish and turn vintage finds into one-of-a-kind keepsakes.

Finally, remember style is not about being perfect.

It’s the Kate Moss factor. She never looks like she is trying too hard.

Something is always a bit off: her hair is messy, her accessories don’t match, her shirt is rumpled. Yet she always looks amazing.

Perfection is over-rated.

Looking like you’re always ready for a photoshoot is not style. Looking like you know how to live, how to have fun and how to let your hair down is.

Lara Stone by Hedi Slimane

Lara Stone by Hedi Slimane

A splash of statement denim is the focus of this Fashionista’s groovy outfit. Paired with a tough pair of boots, perfect for surviving February showers in, the grey floral print brings denim into the spring season. This trend has been going strong since last spring, proving that making an investment in a pair like today’s Fashionista might be a smart decision for your wardrobe!

This look is kept wearable with the tones of the denim, floral can look sophisticated as well as pretty when worn in these grey shades. The key for updating any floral denim pieces for this year seems to be keeping the rest of the outfit minimal, in contrast to spring 2010’s love affair for double denim. This Fashionista has done minimal proud, with an oversized white tee and black boyfriend blazer.

These are the key pieces that trends, such as floral denim, can be incorporated into. To bring out that overused term, they are the investment pieces! Floral denim can be found in all the high street favourite shops, the abundance of it can be somewhat daunting. But keep an eye out for the special pieces, it could be a dress, something that Topshop does ever so well. Or, for the ultimate in floral accessories, look no further than Cath Kidston, the queen of pretty prints. Herwebsite mixes many classic denim pieces with quirky floral accessories.

How to Stay Fashionable On a Budget

With fashion trends changing on an almost everyday basis, you may wonder how individuals who don’t have a lot of money still manage to stay in style. Many fashion trends are also influenced by what’s worn on the red carpet in Hollywood and what is on the runways. Many of these designer brands are often pricey and not a likely possibility for an individual living with a tight budget. It is important to know that even if you have minimal funds you can still be in fashion.

  1. Know the trends. Before you can be in style with the current trends, you must know what the new styles are on the runways and in Hollywood. When you see these new trends, apply them to your body type and choose what styles are the most flattering for your shape. It helps to think a season ahead and purchase items that you feel will last a while.
  2. Invest in a pair of black slacks. If you’re going to a nice event or if you enjoy going out, you should always have a pair of flattering black slacks on hand. No matter what kind of blouse you pair with good-looking slacks, it will always look great. Understand it is worth the money to find slacks that make your body look good.

  3. Have your perfect jeans. Finding jeans is usually very difficult. You have to worry about cut, waist line, how high the rise is and if you feel comfortable in the jeans. You may have to try on many pairs of jeans before you find the jeans that suit your body type. Since jeans are a versatile clothing item, you can transcend them from a daytime look into a dressy evening look. Therefore, it is likely you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck with a great pair of jeans.

  4. Shop the sales. Many stores put items on sale that have simple flaws and some items go on sale because new items have arrived. No matter what season it is, you can find basic clothing items on the sales racks. These items can carry you from one season to the next. In addition, you can even ask for an additional discount at the register if you choose to buy a damaged item. Many stores will give it to you in order to finalize the sale.

  5. Don’t underestimate accessories. Accessories can range from vintage jewelry to knockoff diamonds. No matter what accessories you choose, they can add style and a personal flair to your wardrobe. In addition, you can find them relatively cheap by hitting local garage sales, flea markets and swap meets. Consider staying fashionable on a limited budget a challenge and give it your best shot. Good luck!

Kaelen Farncombe SS 2011

This is the Toronto native’s second collection since launching her brand in 2010. (There is also a FW 11/12, obviously her third collection) I saw this while flipping through the April issue of US Elle magazine and fell in love with the simplicity of the few looks that were featured.
