coming soon to theaters near you...

firstly, i'd like to say thanks to everyone who leaves comments for me! i love reading all of them. :)

anyway, i know it's a little late, but i've decided to do a mini-series on spring trends and such. (not one big post because i'm lazy and that takes too long, plus i like the instant gratification of typing something then immediately hitting the "publish" button.) it'll probably span the next few days/week.

just to clarify, to me, there are two types of trends. there are trends that are flaunted as the "hot new thing" of the season in all the magazines, which are usually toned-down versions of what we see on the runway. most people don't know that, or even know which designers/collections the original idea came from. the other type, what i think of as "fashion blogger" trends (as i see very few people in real life wearing these), which are exactly what was on the runway, but in a do-it-yourself type way. an example would be this lego hair pin thing...

a la marc jacobs spring runway show circa 2008...



a la fashion blogger is mental:

if you want to know how to make one yourself (and don't trust yourself to be able to do it on your own-but seriously, how hard could it be?) (those are famous last words, i tell you...) she has instructions here. hmmmm.... can you guess what i'll be up to this weekend? i give you 3 guesses...

it's like a secret message to other people who follow fashion closely- strike that, almost obsessively- saying something like "hey! i'm not a sheep either!" of course, it might get you a few stares from the mere mortals who aren't in the know, but isn't it cool knowing you're almost part of a secret society? ish...

anyway, check back soon for more! ;)

Haha, I was considering one for prom in the colours of my dress and shoes but wouldn't really assume that it would go down too well with the masses!
Thanks for your comment. xxx

True there are trends on the blogsphere that you don't see out in real life.
