Coraline & Creepers

Long time no see, grasshoppers! I missed you!

Has anyone seen the movie Coraline? I watched it last week, and I found the animation absolutely breathtaking. The first half of the movie was completely amazing, and although I think the story became a bit forced or rushed or something in the second half, I still loved it. Go watch! 

I should also mention that Coraline's style sensibilities were excellent.

See? Girl was rocking a police hat so well it made me want to do the same. In fact, Daria wore a similar cap in March's Vogue Paris. Coraline also shone in a star print sweater that reminded me of Spring '08 Chanel, and I really loved her blue bob, which reminded me a bit of this street style snap of Katie Schillingford. Well done, Little C!

Also, I made this collage for personal inspiration maybe a week ago, but I think it's worth sharing:

Yep, I'm liking creepers lately. They are so, so hideous. I'm not sure why I like them. Yikes.

Because the collage wasn't originally gonna be posted up here, I didn't save the sources. Sorry, folks. But I do remember taking photos from Style Bubble,, Nylon, and The shoes on the bottom left are definitely Dior, and I definitely love them. I believe the top right is Nathan Jenden. The multiple ways these shoes can be styled is baffling, no? As is my terrible taste, because man these are ugly.

Mad Linkz, Yo

I know I've been horribly bad about updating lately, and I'm sorry. I have so many things I've been dying to show y'all (including the acquisition of a sweet faux leather jacket!), but I never quite seem to get around to it. Busy life and all of that. Anyway, I'll share some amazing links for now, and hopefully I'll have a post with some actual writing in it up soon.

♥ This is probably the best thing I've seen in a while. Seriously. I am absolutely blown away.

♥ Some crafty fashionistas have been hard at work lately. Care to make a hole-y scarf? A Wasson-esque harness? Some Alexander Wang-inspired chained jeans (another sweet option here)? Some kick-ass tights? A split belt? A braided neck scarf/necklace/thing? Yes?

♥ Missbehave is going completely digital. Sad! This means that you should sign up for their Weekly Newsflash if you wanna stay on top of things. Also, read their rad blog, will ya?

Style Copycat does a really great job of breaking down trends into different categories of photographic inspiration. So much eye candy it's almost overwhelming.

♥ The way these boots are styled pretty much makes my life. Okay, I exaggerate a tad. But they do look fantastic, no?

This photo shoot is so, so great.  Embroidered patches, buttons, and denim? Yes please!

♥ The jewelry here makes me happy. Although to be perfectly truthful, the jewelry here will always come first in my heart. (Just not in real life where my price range does not allow for it.)

♥ Oh, hello, sleek modern-day version of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz!

♥ I really love Ellen von Unwerth. Especially when she does shoots of Liv Tyler that look like this.

♥ I just finished watching seasons one and  two of Skins here. The show is great. Check it out, if only for Cassie's wonderfully dreamy/girly style.

♥ I've really been appreciating Fake Karl lately, and this comic is very fashion, hmm?

22 reasons to love Stockholm. 

♥ Is it just me, or does Danny Roberts get better and better? His work is always amazing.

Alright, that's all for now. Can you tell I've been saving up for a post? I am infinitely grateful for the tag system on Google Reader.
