project runway.

so i know this is old news - but i dvr pretty much all of my shows...and i just watched this one.
i REALLY wanted althea to win! dang it!
i would have worn (for the most part) everything that she made!
while, i must admit, irina makes some pretty good shit...i just...dont like her.
so today, we shall have an althea post:


you know - i read once that youre never supposed to apologize on your blog for missing some posts here and there...that youre just supposed to go on like there was never a break...soooooo, after explaining that youre not supposed to leave said message - here is todays post:
as mentioned before - i have a little magazine problem. i buy and i buy - to no end. and i can never part with them. and while i havent quite fixed that last build-up problem - i have just remedied my wallet-gouging issues (no pun intended)
i finally subscribed to the magazines that i spend $5 a month on.
here are some fabulous pictures from some fabulous magazines.
nylon - their covers get me every time.
people style watch - is it weird that i love magazines featuring "airport style"..?

elle - fabulous fashion and pictures.

country living - im constantly dog-earing this magazine.

crochet is the new black.

i am in love with what i have found through bliss. im currently loving anything crochet, so when i first saw the picture of my surely soon-to-be-owned earrings, i sighed a little. and spent many a time gazing upon the beauty that is TaniaNovaCrochet. i must buy at least 7 to wear each day. crochet earrings are my new 'days of the week underwear'.

top 5...thursday.

so, this is going to be the top 5 shoes that i must buy now. clearly more immediate than the average top 5 favorite things...that usually last a lil' longer...but i want these now and im going to share that with you.

1 - wanting these so bad right now...and i will get them, because they are fabulously mossimo from target.
2 - im rather enjoying these zipper shoes from steven, that im sure i will only wear for a season - but it will be one beautiful season.
3 - any kinda toms shoes are fabulous, really, but im loving their new ones with laces. i want to buy a ton - what with their amazing one for one thing they do. *side note: i get made fun of cause i love their commercials everytime i see heartwarming!
4 - of course, as you know, i love me some lamb.
5 - i am also buying these converse on my trip to target.

fashion time.

my latest venture to my gmail has led me to urban outfitters''s my shopping list:


back from vacation and in wanderlust mode.
and i dont know why it has taken me this long to do a norway wanderlust, considering norway is my all time travel obsession that has yet to be actualized. *side note: ive traveled a lot and i have no idea why i have yet to visit norway, being that its #1 on my list and i have a town full of relatives and i started my norway travel fund (of $20) when i was 11.
sigh...some day.
faux day shall be today:

i would visit all of the "so-norway" towns.

i would not (hopefully) be confused by norwegian restrooms.i would celebrate the culture the non-tourist way. i would eat smörgåsbord pretty much every day. (yes, i know its originally swedish) i would take a picture with all the vikings. i would explore the (neutrally)-colorful bergen.i would add to the sign at trollstigen (the troll ladder).
i would send home loads of postcards in ginormous excitement. i would stand on the wedged boulder at lysefjord. i would judge my next destination by wooden signs - cause i love me some village signs. i would enjoy some last day dessert of kransekake. i would fly home in my new hoodie.

top 5 wednesday

so, i stole an idea from champagne and marshmallows and i give her full credit!
she's started doing a top five tuesday and i love it.
i have an obsession with making lists. theyre all over. i write at least one [of some sorts] a day and then i find 7 in a purse or pocket a month later. (usually, only half crossed off)
so, i think wednesdays will be my top 5 day. (altho, please forgive me if im off a day here and i have a [slight] hard time sticking to dates.)...(also, my taste's change rather often, so i may have a top 5 of the same thing a month later *wink*)
today - my top 5 favorite handbag designers (stemming off of my last post)

1 - marc jacobs, by far.

2 - l.a.m.b.

3 - chloé

4 - louis vuitton (i prolly wouldnt buy one unless i came into a good amount of money, but they're so classic - its worth the money)
5 - b. makowsky (either a hit or a miss with me, but when its a hit - its a smasher)
