Look Book it's all about the "HYPE"

I have been obsessed with this site called Look Book, its such a great idea for finding style all over the world instead of relying on street bloggers to find it for you. I will say that the street bloggers find more expensive taste in high fashion cities but Look Book allows anyone to show it off in one place and you can vote on the "Hype" for your favorites.

WHAT IS HYPE? users show their appreciation for styles they like by voting up, or adding "HYPE" points to their favorite looks. Along with how recently the look was posted, each vote helps to determine which looks are showcased on the HOT page—the more a look is hyped, the higher up it appears.

Here are a few of my favorites but seriously I really could post all day... so many on there, I suggest you take some time to look through the archives. Another plus is everyone is so good looking... so adorable, and I say adorable because the majority of the contributors are between the ages of 13-22. It's amazing how times have changed when I was 13 what to wear was the least of my worries.

Dear Creatures

A friend of mine told me that I might like this designer because I'm a huge fan of Jumpsuits/Rompers/Playsuits whatever YOU call it I love them. So I went to the site to check out the spring collection and I actually already know of Dear Creatures or at least have seen the clothes in various places.

I love the pieces although most of the styles are a little to cutesy/girlie for me to pull off, but that doesn't mean I don't like it on other people. Apparently Zooey Deschanel has been the best press for Dear Creatures, the actress has been seen wearing the clothes all over the place... movie press junkets, out and about town and already in two different commercials (I like the dress Zooey is wearing in the picture on the right). Regardless it looks like Dear Creatures is well on the path to a great and bright future.

Here are some images from the Spring '09 Look Book... and that romper is pretty darn cute.

I actually love the Autumn '08 collection more than the spring '09... This dress below I adore but sadly I couldn't pull it off, I love that style even better as a blouse, now that I would wear!

Marc by Marc Swim Look Book

Just a little taste of Marc by Marc swim (who doesn't love him?) I think the ruffle top two piece is always a cute idea but I'm not crazy about the ruffle bottoms, I would pair the top with a solid bottom. My personal favorite is the kissing fish one piece... mmmm okay okay and the shoulder bow one piece but I can't get away with wearing that.

Swim Want

I think I finally found the perfect one piece for this summer. I used to work for AA as a corporate merchandiser and last year one of the girls I knew designed and made one sample of this suit. Last summer she was wearing it at a pool party and I absolutly loved it, so hot! Finally they put it into production and I have to get myself one, that is if it fits me right. Find this one piece at American Apparel They are having an online special 15% off all swimwear but hurry it ends on the 26th.

Shoes on Ebay

I posted two items on Ebay last night before I passed out. I have a lot more things I should be posting but without my camera and somehow a little house elf stole my measuring tape its hard for me right now to list anything. I might just hold onto everything for the next Sale in LA, I'll keep you posted about details on that one.My Ebay Page

Swim Won't

Ok time for me to be an asshole right now, maybe its the heat induced headache I've been dealing with all day but normally I try to keep my (negative) comments to myself.

With the weather starting to warm up I'm on the swim wear prowl and I stopped at 80's Purple for some browsing... now I'm not posting this because I like the swim wear, I would just like to take a minute and point out the photographer's horrible work here. The lighting in the photos is decent but look at the way he/she was posing the models! These girls are not bad looking but the angle of the shots and the poses just make the swim wear look unflattering... am I wrong? I think they need a re-shoot. I'm sorry but the last one just cracks me up, and you might notice a little "toe" action in the second to last one.

Spring & Clifton

A taste of the Spring/Summer 09 collection. I've been a fan of Spring and Clifton for about five years, I still own some of the earlier knit work sweaters the designer/owner Michelle Zacks started her company off with. I don't think I'll ever get rid of the knit sweaters, they are timeless designs. Every trip I made to NY I would make sure to stop by Michelle's little boutique to snatch up any one of a kind sample she might have, sadly my trips to NY are few and far between these days.

If I was not broke I would buy all of this. Check out Spring&

Moustache May 2 weeks away

I myself am a huge fan of guys and moustache's always have been (don't know why my father never had one). For me the sleazeir the better but I always get a kick out of my guy friends and their insane handle bar moustache growth. So for those of you ladies (or dudes) who can't participate in growing a crazy fun stach then here is another fashionalbe option for you other than drawing on your finger with a Sharpie. The Moustashe ring! Sooo cute, I love it. So in honor of Moustache May I suggest you buy one they are only $45... and for those who love contests (and who can grow upper lip hair) check out Moustache it looks like they do their website yearly and the 2009 site isn't up just yet but check it out anyway and see last years submissions.

Where to buy the ring? Straight from Melanie! On a great site called Super Market HQ that has a ton of other wonderful independent designers and artists.

Fashion and Art always a beautiful mix

PRADA toilet made out of cardboard and thermal adhesive

CHANEL guillotine mixed media

CHANEL chainsaw made out of cardboard and thermal adhesive

Tom Sochs creations might mean that Prada is a shit box or that CHANEL is a tool for pain and destruction?... I have no clue I'm the worst at reading the hidden meaning in one's art. I just know I love it and think its amazing, and I plan to get the CHANEL chain saw tattooed on my little body somewhere. I've always wanted a CHANEL tattoo mostly because it's my last name but I never wanted the CoCo logo and I'm sure you can guess why... EVERYONE has that! I thought about just the name in bold but now that I have seen this... I can say "Fuck me gently with a (CHANEL) chain saw".

Check out more of Tom Sochs work it's all pretty amazing, even the Hello Kitty crying. Tom's Site

Selling: My Bike

Poor thing has never been used. So sad I know what a waste, she's a 56cm fixed speed with no breaks (thats why I don't ride her). Along with the bike I do have a mini tire pump that can straped on, a set of hand brakes and wire but I had ordered the wrong sized brake calliper so that's the real reason I never added the brakes. I want to sell her for what I paid which was $300 being that the bike is brand spanking new or give me your best offer. Please take this bike off my hands I feel like an asshole for having it as an art piece in my living room. If you are interested (or know someone who might be) hit me up
