Wild Flowers

I'm usually not the biggest fan of Nylon, but read it because I have a free subscription. I received the March issue yesterday, and for some reason I found it so much more delightful than usual! I devoured it joyfully.

My favorite photo shoot was the dreamy Wildflowers spread. It had an beautiful ethereal quality that made me think of Lula Magazine. Here are some (crappy) scans of the flowery photos.

Gorgeous, right? I must get some flowers in my hair stat.

Some blossom-studded options:

1. Embellished Flower Barrette
2. Orchid Hair Clip
3. Teen Vogue DIY with Erin Fetherston
4. Wild Rose Hair Clip
5. Leather Flower Headband

25 Things to Do With Fashion Mags

I just wrote an article for Got a Crush, and I had so much fun writing about it (it really got my creative juices flowing!) that I feel I have to share it with you.

Anyway, here is the article:

"25 Things to Do With Fashion Magazines

by Kori Perten

A lot of people are of the opinion that regular magazines are being usurped by blogs and online magazines. I strongly disagree! I adore blogs and the online fashion world, but nothing can replace the glossy glory of a tangible fashion magazine.

Not convinced? Here are 25 great things you can do with fashion magazines.

1. Read them. Kind of a given.

2. Tear out your favorite pictures and hang them on your wall.

3. Get your favorite pictures blown up to poster size at a printing store and give them to your friends as gifts.

4. Paste pictures of your favorite trends into a notebook for fashion inspiration.

5. Cut them up and make a collage.

6. Cover thick bangles with words cut from a magazine and spread paint glaze over them for a glossy finish.

7. Make a magazine library full of your favorite issues.

8. Scan intriguing editorials and post them for discussion on the livejournal community foto_decadent (

9. Keep a folder full of articles that make you feel beautiful.

10. Fill a folder with articles full of things you plan to try; a healthier diet, tropical spa, or nail polish trick- anything that intrigues you! And then try them.

11. Write a blog that analyzes magazine photo shoots and styling.

12. Collect the little beauty samples that come in magazines. When you have obtained a large amount, put them in a basket and give them to a friend for pampering.

13. Photoshop your picture into magazine photo shoots so that you have an interesting background. Susie from Style Bubble ( does this regularly with great results.

14. Glue magnets to the back of words cut from magazines and stick them to your refrigerator.

15. Find vintage magazines in libraries and on Ebay to learn about the fashions in days past.

16. Keep a magazine in your purse to flip through in waiting rooms and (discreetly) during boring lectures.

17. Paste pictures you love to the top of your dresser and cover with glaze.

18. Submit a letter to the editor and (possibly) get it published at the front of the magazine.

19. Apply for a job or internship at your favorite magazine.

20. Sniff the inside of the magazine, because fashion magazines tend to smell delicious. (That’s not weird…)

21. Hide post-its with cute notes on them inside a magazine before lending it to a friend.

22. Study the poses of models in ads and photo shoots, then practice in front of the mirror. Switching between difficult poses can actually loosen and strengthen your muscles, not to mention the posing will make you feel like a million bucks. The posing may also make you feel slightly foolish.

23. Use magazine photo shoots as inspiration for your own photo shoots.

24. Wrap presents in magazine pages for unique wrapping paper. Recycling magazines like this is better for the environment than buying wrapping paper.

25. Swap your old magazines at places like

See? Fashion magazines can help you get in touch with your crafty side, define your personal style, and cheer up your friends. Plus, recycling them is good for the environment! I’m sure there are many other fashion magazine-related activities that I didn’t even think of, so be creative and have fun!"

Well, that was the article. At first, I just wrote down things I personally did with my magazines (I call myself an active magazine reader because my magazines always end up torn up and written on), but gradually I had to think more and more outside of the box. It was fun! Now I might have to go do some of these things.

What do you like to do with your magazines? Do you have anything you'd like to add to the list?

Jumeau and Old Navy

A reader asked for a picture of me with my new Jumeau bag so that she could get a better idea of the size.

Well, dearies, your wish is my command!

I'm taking the opportunity to show you my new Old Navy purchases in addition to le bag.

Here I am wearing my new Old Navy cardigan. It was on the clearance rack, and for only $15 I couldn't help myself. Cute, no? For the curious, I'm also wearing an Old Navy tank, black pants from Zara, and the Jumeau bag.

Here is a tank I purchased from the Old Navy urban explorer collection. The collection had a lot of stuff I really liked, but it just felt to early to be stocking up on summer items, so I only let myself buy one thing. I love the mixed prints on this though, and there are cute wooden buttons down the front. I'm also wearing Old Navy cargo pants I've had forever and my Jumeau bag.

I actually don't own much from Old Navy, but for some reason I'm representing in these pictures.

Jumeau Bags

Not too long ago, I received an email from Jumeau bags offering me two free bags to review. I responded with excitement. Jumeau has four collections in the Fall/Winter '07 line - the Institution Collection, the Now Collection, the Commando Collection, and the Green Collection. I was especially drawn by the Green Collection, because although it feels a little out of my means to always buy green, a bag "focusing on natural materials such as organic cotton, bamboo and natural dyes" seemed right up my alley.

So I picked the Keri bag from the Green Collection, opting for a cool blue acid wash color.

The second bag I picked out was never delivered (I don't know what's going on with that), so I'm not going to talk about it.

Anyway, here are my thoughts on the Keri bag:

I like it. It's not exactly my taste (as in I would probably not pick it out in a store), but I'm kind of enamoured with the dark acid wash effect. I gave it a test run today on a trip to Old Navy (more on that later), and found it very satisfactory. The bag is extraordinarily roomy, with plenty of handy pockets. The strap is comfortable, and doesn't slip from my shoulder the way the straps on other bags tend to. The fabric is quite sturdy, and I can tell that the bag is extremely well made. It will last for a long time, let me tell you that.

My only complaint is that the bag is on the heavy side. It's large enough to hold a ton of stuff, but I find myself avoiding filling it up because any extra weight will result in some shoulder discomfort.

But maybe I'm just a wimp.

Anyway, the bottom line is that I'm happy with my Jumeau bag. For more information, take a look at the Jumeau bags workbook, or got to

Poisoned Femininity

Aah, it feels good to be back in the blog loop. As I sift through the 1000+ posts awaiting me on my Google Reader (I think my homework is in danger), I am slowly getting back in that comfortable place where I know what's going on in the fashion world and blogosphere.

One of the wonderful posts that awaited me when I arrived home last night was Gala Darling's ode to the "Neogoth" look. It made me want to play with some of the elements of the look. The ideas that interested me the most were:

"Neogoth is about texture. Wool, silk, lace & leather. Wood, plastic & lacquer. Without texture there is no neogoth — just someone wearing lots of darkly-hued clothing. Some people wear black to hide themselves away, minimise themselves, appear invisible. Neogoth is about doing the opposite: making a statement, dressing it up, putting in an effort & looking fabulous."

"Colleen of Panic Industry coined the phrase “poisoned femininity“ to describe a lot of what she sees on the catwalk at the moment, & I think that is worth incorporating into the whole neogoth thing. It’s not just clothing, it’s about feelings & mood. It’s about playing up the elements of mystery, drama & intrigue. It’s about being delicate with a dark edge, being unexpected & a little sick around the edges. Kind of like that broken dolly thing from the 90’s, just more grown-up. "

I'm throwing away the "uber-modern" bit and adding a bit of a fairytale edge, so I don't know where that takes me. Into the realms of "normal goth," perhaps? Into a completely different area of style? I neither know nor care.

But I was inspired, and I experimented.

Note: I had some fun with this photo shoot.

I took the "mystery, drama, and intrigue" bit to heart, and kept texture in mind. The first look was all black, with a velvet skirt worn as a dress over a top that draped rosettes over the front. The second look involved a black top and deep, wine-colored skirt.

I think my pale skin and dark hair lend themselves to this style, but anyone could rock it.

I also think it made me feel pretty great. Maybe I'll let my dark side shine through a bit more in the future.

Hello From New Hampshire

I'm holed up in the coziest of houses, with a blazing fire casting an orange glow on frosted glass panes. With snow fighting its way inside on rugged soles, my style has reverted to gray fleece pants and flannel shirts, and my hair is always down to shield my ears from cold. When I put on my motorcycle boots, I felt kind of like a lumberjack.

I say this in the past tense because my motorcycle boots broke yesterday.

I'm very upset. Apparently one should not put their trust in Charles Albert.

I've tried to include some slightly fashion-y elements in this post, but with the scent of smoke wafting delicately through the air, I'm too deliciously drowsy to think much about I'm wearing.

It happens to all of us, sometimes.

Well, I'm not completely out of the fashion loop. I can't help but reflect on the fact that the rosy glow my cheeks get from a long walk beneath fairy tale-frosted pines flatters me more than any application of blush could ever do.

Take that, M.A.C.

I'll be home by Friday, ready to embrace fashion once more. Hopefully the Forever 21 sale that I read about as I scrolled through the subject lines of my email messages will still be going on then.

Up, Up, and Away!

I'm off to New Hampshire for the rest of the week!

I'm hoping to find internet access where I'm going, so expect (maybe) the occasional post.

I have some fun things in store, like product reveiws, plans for a second Blogging Society Challenge, and that kind of thing, so keep reading...

For the meantime, content yourself with my articles on Got a Crush and the wonderful blogs listed on my sidebar.

Something feels wrong.

I was musing to myself that I would love to dress like this woman come summer.

Then I looked at the caption:

"Prostitute, Calcutta."


It's funny how style is perceived, isn't it? When I think of prostitutes, I think of fishnet stockings and raunchy outfits, not a delicate lace dress and sun hat. This woman's outfit is more Keira Knightly in Pirates of the Caribbean than Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, and I would wear it for a stroll in a garden, or maybe a day at the beach.

And I would not expect to be treated like a whore.

Perceptions, perceptions . . .

Polka-dotted & Chic

Don't these Lela Rose for Payless pumps look so classy with the neutral outfit?

I love this look.

I never realized that polka-dotted pumps could actually be chic.

Echo, Violet & Claire

The Francesca Lia Block obsession continues. I checked Echo and Violet & Claire out of the library, yesterday, and I devoured them each in a few hours. Nothing can live up to the beloved Weetzie Bat series, but I can't help but marvel at the beautiful language and imagery that is characteristic of Block's books. I'm also slightly enamoured of the fact that the characters always have unique and edgy fashions that seem to fit their personalities perfectly.

If you haven't guessed it by now, I'm sharing fashionable Francesca Lia Block quotes again. Get ready for inspiration!


♥ "Her eyes seem naturally kohl-lined, her hair naturally hennaed. She is not particularly into fashion. She only needs a few gauzy dresses that she makes herself and some bare Grecian sandals that lace up her long amber legs. High-priced fashion would be a waste on her; it would be extraneous."

This quote makes me want to wear gauzy dresses and Grecian sandals. It also makes me jealous of the woman the quote is describing, at least appearance-wise.

♥ "On weekends we took drives along the coast, jogged in the hills, went to museums and flea markets where I bought deteriorating silk slip dresses from the forties."

Not only do the slip dresses really fit the character, but I find the whole idea of wearing vintage slip dresses to be sort of fairytale-ish.

♥ "...all my vintage stuff was ghosts..."

Love this line. Describing "deteriorating silk slip dresses from the forties" as "ghosts" is just perfect.

♥ "L.A. is a beautiful prostitute with bougainvillea-blossom-pink lips, hair extensions to her waist, stiletto heels straining the muscles in her calves. Promising opiate dazzle if you pay enough."

Okay, so this isn't really a fashion quote, but it makes me want to paint my lips "bougainvillea-blossom-pink."

Violet & Claire:

♥ "The girls in the Red Cherry were tremendous. Emerging from clouds of red smoke, they looked like superfreak goddesses with the longest legs and manes of synthetic hair. I was just wondering if any of them would be interested in sharing their stories when ESMERALDA . . . rolled up to us in her wheelchair. Her makeup looked like cake frosting applied with a spatuula, and she wore a cherry-red bubble wig. Her emaciated, twisted body was sheathed in a revealing black cocktail dress, and there were spike heels on her gnarled feet."

What an interesting image! You can put on all the glamorous clothing and makeup you want, but it will never hide the real you.

♥ ". . . a hugely muscled six foot tall bleach blond African American trans slunk over on sinewy expresso legs in shimmery sheer cream stockings."

I suddenly want to have "sinewy expresso legs." I guess I'll settle for "shimmery sheer cream stockings," though.

Let It Rain Hearts

Look- it's my dream umbrella! In the perfect world, I would buy it and hope for rain on Valentine's Day.

Sorry for the lack of posting. I'm trying to catch up in school after missing a week with the flu.

Also, to those who suggested I check out the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, thanks so much! I spent a long time perusing the website, and I am in love with how whimsical it is! I'll have to place an order sometime soon to scoop up some samples! And then I'll review them, of course . . .

Anyway, with Valentine's day coming up, I was just wondering . . . do you guys dress up for Valentine's Day? I always try to wear something tiny to get in the spirit - a heart-shaped necklace, or maybe a red skirt - but I never go all out. I'd love to see your Valentines-y outfits if you do! Red and romantic is where it's at!

How Funny

I was just musing to myself that this Urban Collection vintage bag reminded me of the new urban safari-themed Old Navy Collection.

Then I looked at the description and realized that the label was "Old Navy Cotton."


Maybe Old Navy's "new collection" isn't so new after all . . .

Let's Talk Perfume

I recieved an excerpt from a certain book about perfume in my Victorya Hong goody bag. I'm not allowed to quote from it or anything, because this isn't the final published copy, but I will let you know that the book was called Perfumes: The Guide by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez. It was extremely informative and fun. Here's a post on things about perfume you've always wanted to know, which I've been able to put together because of the book. A bit of my personal opinions are, of course, included.

First of all, why buy perfume?

Well, because you enjoy it. Buying for the sole purpose of attracting the opposite sex is not such a good idea. Firstly, you're going to be the one smelling the scent all day, so you sure as hell better like it more than your boyfriend does. Secondly, the smell that drives men wild happens to be bacon. Studies have proven it.

What is the best way to shop for perfume?

Know that sales assistants are given to promoting the most recent fragrances, which are not necessarilly the best. If you want to sample something older, ask for the best in the line, or a perfume that is like nothing else. Then you've got a conversation that can prove very helpful.

Most people don't have the stamina to smell more than 5-10 fragrances in a go. Make sure to spray them on little cards to smell, not on your skin. When you find something on a card that you'd like to get to know better, spray it on yourself. Then leave the fragrance part of the store. Go out for lunch, go shopping, do whatever. Pay attention to what the perfume does on your skin. Does it vanish quickly? Does it bore or annoy you? Or does the scent remain wonderful? If you still love it after a few hours, buy it. Fragrances are constantly discontinued and reformulated, so snatch it up while you can.

What should you know about wearing perfume?

There seems to be a common misconception that rubbing a perfume into your skin can "bruise" it. Nope, not the case. It's perfectly okay to spread it gently onto your skin. What you don't want to do is rub the perfume so vigurously that the scent evaporates before its time.

Another thing that I hear mentioned a lot is that perfume smells differently on different people. This isn't hugely noticeable, but there is some truth to the matter. Individual skins mainly seem to affect the top notes, so by the time it's reached the middle notes, the perfume will smell the same on everyone. Of course, the oiliness and temperature of a person's skin will vary from person to person, so the rate at which the scent evaporates will also vary.

I've always wondered if perfume goes bad. It turns out that it depends on the perfume. A small number seem to take a turn for the worst after a few years, but most seem to have no expiration date. However, if you want your perfumes to last for a long time, keep them away from sunlight, which will cause the scent to evaporate.

I hope you learned a lot. I know I did! I also learned about some perfumes I absolutely have to try, like:

♥ Rue Cambon by Chanel: Apparently floral, amber-y, and wonderful enough to be given 4.5 stars.

♥ Bagdley Mischka: Delicious and very fruity.

♥ Black by Bulgari: An interesting blend of amber, 50's florals, and rubber? Sounds strange, but its supposedly magnificent. I want to try it.

♥ Chinatown by Bond No. 9: To Luca Turin, it smells like the corner of a French grocery at summertime, where the scent of floor wax meets the scent of ripe peaches.

♥ Jicky by Guerlain: The basic idea is lavender and a smoky, creamy vanilla, but it contains a lemon cheescake-y note and french herbs.

♥ Osmanthe Yunnan by Hermes: A mixture of osmanthus flower, which smells like suede and apricots, and and tea, which lends a milky sweetness to the skin.

♥ Tommy Girl by Tommy Hilfiger: It's underated because of its cheap price, but Tommy Girl has a tea base with fresh florals. I love my Tommy Girl 10, so I imagine Tommy Girl smells great.

Is there anything else I should know about perfume? Have you tried any of the perfumes on my "must try" list? What's your favorite perfume? Do you have a signature scent, or do you like to mix it up? Spill!

For more of my thoughts on perfume, check out the rules for wearing perfume that I wrote about here. I was very proud of that post, at the time.

Fabulous Street Style

Stylesightings just did a post of fashion week style that took my breath away. Such amazingly fashionable people! Such creativity! Such genius clothing combinations!

See for yourself:

It shouldn't work, but it does. Those shoes are fabulous, and I love the bag. The fantastically patterned dress looks so great with the leather jacket, and I adore the scarf headband.

Those tights! Where did she get them? Can I have a pair, please? Also, that draping on the dress - pretty, right? I'm thinking I might be able to recreate that...

What can I say, I'm a fan of torn stockings and lace-up boots, especially when mixed with lace.

Not Your Grandma's Loafers


I have something to admit. I've been lusting over (cringe) loafers. Before you write me off as someone with bad taste in footwear, I'd like to point out that pretty, feminine, candy-colored loafers are the ones catching my eye. Loafers like these:

1. Bianca sailor girl suede shoes, $49.90 ♥ 2. Isaac Mizrahi silver driving moccasins, $20.99 ♥ 3. Charlotte Russe heart loafers, $18.99 ♥ 4. Hot pink vintage loafers, $28.00

Of course, I can't help but adore the more expensive blue suede ones, but they sadly aren't available in my size. However, the cheep Charlotte Russe ones are awful cute. I'm loving the chains with the little hearts!

So, what do you think? Can loafers be a "fashion do" after all?

Teen Vogue seems to think so:

Note to self: Pair loafers with white tights and a sweetly whimsical ensemble. Cute preppy boy optional.

Hehe, I feel fashion savvy. I may need to place an order at Charlotte Russe ASAP, because I've been house-bound with a nasty virus and am feeling woefully in need of something cheer-inducing.

Prada Video

Weird but amazing.

A Man A Plan A Canal Vena Cava

I love Vena Cava. Not only are the clothes beautiful and wearable, but the designers are so nice and down-to-earth! I had the opportunity to meet them (okay, so I watched a presentation they made) earlier this year, and I thought they were great - inovative, committed to their work, creative, and fun.

That's why I'm so glad to see these pictures, which give a look into their creative process.

The Stuff of Dreams

I've come down with a nasty virus of some sort, which leaves me ample time to loll on the couch and look at runway pictures from the most recent shows. Unfortunately, my pounding head has failed to allow me to take much pleasure in this. Flipping through gorgeous collection after gorgeous collection, my usual "wow!"s have been replaced with the uninspiring hack of my cough.

This morning, about to give up on fashion week until a healthier date, I clicked on's coverage of Rodarte.

And paused.

And dropped jaw.


Ethereal gauze, artfully mangled yarn, and tattered fishnets abounded. Jewel-encrusted eyes glared from pale fingers; spike-laden shoes threatened to impale anyone who dared cross their path. Although the colors ranged from blood reds and blacks to soft beiges and ice blues, the mood on the runway was as dark as the models' lipstick.

Rodarte's Fall 2008 collection is alluringly otherworldly. These outfits would not look out of place in a mermaid's grotto, enchanted forest, or sorceror's tower. In fact, I'd like to point out to Stephie that the first gown pictured here would probably be worn by a vampire bride.

But enough with the supernatural wearers. I would wear these too, were they not so damn expensive.

I love you, sisters Rodarte. I'll take the entire collection, please,
And wear it when the moon is a ghostly gallion, tossed upon cloudy seas.

Yes, that was a Rodarte couplet with a bit of verse stolen from Alfred Noyes' The Highwayman. I felt the occasion deserved it.

Happy BlogDay!

I have just realized that as of yesterday, my blog is officially one year old!

Happy birthday, dear bloggy, happy birthday to you!

A lot of amazing things have happened since (and because) I started this blog - I've met so many amazing bloggers, developed a (growing) following of over a hundred feed subscribers, begun working at, attended NY Fashion Week, attended Teen Vogue Fashion University, discovered Lula magazine, further developed my personal style, become more fearless in my fashion choices, and found many fashionable girlcrushes to admire.

So, thanks to all my amazing and incredible and infinitely stylish readers for sticking with me! I love you all, I love blogging, and I hope this blog will continue to grow and improve.

Goals for this next year of blogging: Find new and interesting ways to dress, meet more wonderful bloggers (maybe in person?), attend Boston Fashion Week, attend more than one show during the next NY Fashion week (perhaps?...this one is out of my hands), attend TVFU again, and find a truly unique blogging voice that people enjoy.

I started this blog for me, but now its also for my readers. Does anyone have any advice/constructive criticism they'd like to give for this next year of blogging? I will accept presents and virtual cupcakes as well. Seriously.

I will now gift my blog with a birthday card, 'cause if I don't, who will?

Ahem. Let's pretend that wasn't the dorkiest thing ever.

Happy birthday, blog!

Urban Saffari

It seems that Old Navy's urban saffari-themed H&M-esque collection has finally arrived!

I actually really like it.

I've always been a sucker for interesting prints.

What do you think?

Jovovich-Hawk Preview

A very pretty smattering of Target ads in the latest issue of Teen Vogue alerted me to the fact that Target has finally released the Jovovich-Hawk preview photos!

As expected, the line features floaty, feminine dresses with a whimsical edge. Hopefully they will be as lovely in stores as the appear online.

A Trip to NY Fashion Week

Hello, hello, hello! I'm back from NYC!

Victorya Hong's show was an interesting first experience at fashion week.

My friend Monisha, who accompanied me, and I got all dolled up and ready. Here you can see us posing with the world's smartest (and cutest) four-year-old, who didn't come with us to the show. He wanted to, though.

The detailing on my shirt (as well as the length of my legs) is kind of lost in the picture, but you can see the beauty of Monisha's dress, which she found in her mother's closet and cut to a short length. You can also see our intense excitement!

We braved the NYC subway and the torrential rain to make it to the Altman building, where the show was taking place. We checked in, and the man at the desk told me there wasn't a seat for me (or Monisha.) I was a little annoyed about that. I mean, I realize I'm an 18-year-old with barely any presence in the fashion world, but when I'm invited to something, I expect to be provided with a seat at the very least. I don't know if that's standard or not, though, and a lot of other people were seatless. Monisha and I managed to snag two back row seats just as the show began.

Our distance from the runway resulted in kind of crappy pictures, but you can get the idea.

I really liked Victorya's collection. You could see a lot of menswear inspiration, but the clothes were still inherently feminine. They looked loosely fitted, comfortable, and easy to wear, which is something I prize in clothing. Most of the looks would be appropriate for a day at the office, a shopping trip, or even a night out. Very, very wearable.

Judging by the enthusiastic applause as Victorya poked her head (bearing a sweetly ecstatic grin) out at the end of the show, I'd say a lot of the crowd shared my opinions about the clothes.

As everyone stood up to leave, I looked frantically around for Susie Bubble and failed to find her. I had so been looking foward to meeting her, so this was a huge disappointment. Sightings of Christian (from the current season of Project Runway) and Jay (the winner of a previous season) managed to cheer me up a bit, as did a glossy black goody bag that I collected from an abandoned seat in the front row. Was this appropriate fashion show etiquette? I don't know. But it was just going to be thrown away, and I wanted it. So there.

We went off to a restaurant to kill sometime before the afterparty, but my Chronic Fatigue decided to hit full force at that point, and it was the least I could do to drag myself to the subway and catch a ride home.

The next day was spent visiting with family and walking around Soho. I have decided that I want to live in an Anna Sui boutique someday. It was love.

Forgive me if there are any misspellings in this post. My spell check stopped working and I'm too exhausted to think straight.

Farewell, grasshoppers!

I'm off to NYC!

I'll be back sometime Saturday or Sunday with lots of pictures and stories to share.

P.S. I have decided on a super-secret fashion show outfit. It is fabulous.
