Happy Earth Day!

Today is Earth Day and I thought that a good way to celebrate is to apply 1 of the 3 basic rules to take care of the environment (REduce, REuse, REcycle).

Today I want  to REUSE and old item from my closet. I have an old jean jacket that I used to love but now it doesn't fit quite right on the arms. So I'm going to take out my scissors and try to pull out this look by Frida J. from FYNDIGT

It would be fun if you could reuse an old item from your closet doing some easy alterations and then tell me about it. We can all pitch in with ideas...what do you think? we can be fashionable and environment friendly at the same time.

In other subject, I finally watched The September Issue yesterday. Although I finished watching it very late yesterday, I felt eager to tell you my thoughts on the film right away. But I was just too excited. I think the only word that came to mind was WONDERFUL.

I think this is the best documentary I have ever seen. The editing was so fluid that I never stopped feeling like I was inside the Vogue walls, watching Anna very closely. Personally, I loved the friendship/rivalry relationship between Anna and Grace. I think that the difference in opinion between the 2 fashion goddesses made the editorials richer and more interesting.

I also loved how Mario Testino (who, by the way, is peruvian) had such a strong personality and took creative liberties when shooting with Sienna Miller.

It was just so amazing to see the dynamic between editors, stylists, fashion designers, models and photographers. It made me wanna jump into a plane, go to NYC and knock on Vogue's doors asking for a job doing anything of the above. It really is a wonderful , yet misunderstood world. As Anna said, "There is something about fashion that can make people very nervous" and that's probably why they mock it.

Am I the last to watch it?

I had been waiting for "The September Issue" to be shown at the local movie theaters, but many months have passed and apparently there is no intention to release the movie in my country. Today I had it with the waiting. I think I'm the only fashion lover that has not watched the film.
This morning, while I was working I started to download the movie and now I have it, I'm so excited to watch it!
I'll tell you my thoughts on the film tomorrow...I know it's late and everyone has watched it already but maybe we can start a fun discussion about it.

thanks for reading!

I'm in love...with the most amazing shoes ever

I'm so in love with these shoes. 
Milliner Phillip Treacy showed that he can design more than hats. And... OMG he CAN design such dreamy shoes! This is part of the collection that the irish artist made for Valentino. Tulle, cristal and stilettos. This is a romantic, elegant and dramatic combination.
I know I will be dreaming about this shoes for a long time. How do you like them?

PETER LINDBERGH: Designers' costume Drama

This is an editorial that Peter Lindbergh, one of my favorite fashion photographers, shot for Harper's Bazaar in September 2008. Even though this one is not my favorite editorial from him, I think it's interesting how he captures the different moods and personalities of the designers. I specially like Karl Lagerfeld confessing that he loves rap.
