Balenciaga Inspired.

( H&M Dress & Belt, American Apparel Tights, thrifted scarf)

I'm finally back from SPAIN!!! YAYYY!! I had an amazing trip, and I feel like I'm five shades darker. I'm happy to say that the Icelandic volcano did not cause too much trouble for me. Expect pictures / outfits from my trip soon! Although keep in mind that I was living out of a 15 pound backpack for 2 weeks thus I had a very limited wardrobe.

Anyway, I wore this outfit in Paris right before I left for my Spanish holiday - and just managed to put up the pictures - I know I'm absolutely horrible. Like many I've been absolutely obsessed with the Balenciaga F/W09 collection and I could not be happier to find that H&M has finally created a Balenciaga-inspired dress - although I wish they made the v-neck puffy shoulder blouse as well... oh well, I adore the dress nonetheless. (Haha, just rhymed.)

So my Ipod has been my life lately, and these are some tracks I currently love:

Sea Bear - I Sing, I Swim
Bon Iver - Re: Stacks
Ratatat - Mirando
Hot Chip - Shake a Fist
Broken Bells - The High Road
Apparat - Arcadia
Aphex Twin - Windowlicker

Also - Good Albums:

The Tallest Man on Earth - The Wild Hunt
Sea Wolf - White Water, White Bloom
Thom Yorke - The Eraser

Alrighty, hopefully another post in two days!! Fingers crossed!

Lessons in Flight

Okay, so it's official - I SUCK at updating my blog! I really will make more of an effort next month to update more. It's so hard to find people who are willing to take your picture / places to take a picture! The weather in Paris has been extremely awful - cold and rainy. Also I have to go from museum to museum for class, and it's hard to bike with my dSLR in my bag. I know I shouldn't make excuses, but I PROMISE that updates will occur more regularly in May.

Um, yes, I said May. My spring break starts on the 14th and I'll be spending 2 wonderful (sunny) weeks in Barcelona & Mallorca - but I won't be able to take my computer with me due to luggage weight regulations at the airport. Sorry!! I promise the 2 week wait will be well worth your time!!

Anyway, I took these pics right after I got out of my class at the Louvre. It was a beautifulllly sunny Thursday afternoon. I bought the tights at American Apparel YEARS ago, but I didn't think suburban Michigan could handle them. So I decided to give them a test run in Paris, I got a few looks, but I think overall they were only slightly out of the blue. Haha.

Discovered more new band obsessions - Nobody Beats the Drum & Four Tet (both electro). Listen to She Just Likes To Fight by Four Tet!! And the whole NBTD album!!
