Sitting in the Waiting Room


This outfit was definitely inspired by Comme des Garcons - not in the actual 'design' sense, more in the "I just felt like wearing polka dots and brogues today" sense. (I know shit-all about design, people. I just like to wear clothes.) But while we're on the topic, I can't even extol in words how much I enjoyed the Comme S/S 2010 collection!


The hair reminded me of those Juicy Couture ads that are always in Teen Vogue, and the clothes were so intricate and pretty. Plus, I have mad respect for flat shoes on the runway. That's the way it should be!

P.S. -What's with these colourful leaves? Fall is here, dudes! And not a minute too soon.

emily said...

i'm in love with polka dots too. usually i prefer stripes but so many designers put them in their s/s collections and now all i want to wear is them!

Haha, Deftones is definitely not a band I'd seriously listen to now. They were purely a middle school band. And the bust cast event actually sounds really cool. I thought it was pretty funny that you had that.

I love the polka dot dress and am really excited about fall as well. Unfortunately the leaves haven't really started changing here yet. :(

Elizabeth said...

I really like those white brogues (and the ones on the runway) - and I always feel a little bad about liking those Juicy Couture ads whenever I see them, but I do love the crazy pastel-colored hair.

Danielle said...

diane said...

You sure weren't kidding, very similar looks. I like the way you dressed down that dress.
Almost forgot, awesome the way you caught the vibrant color of those leaves.

Damsels said...

hahaha you are so funny .. honestly make me laugh ... i hate people who take it too seriously ... but love polka dots and brogue ..
gosh comme de garcons is my number one favorite designer

Mimi said...

umm would you mind if i just stole those shoes and not give them back ever ever never? kay thx, bai.

(ps. i know shit about designers too, but as long as we see what we like, and wear it with style and confidence, we can pass it off as "Oh, right, Mr. Designer X here has inspired me so much with his/her Design X." hahaha :P)

Jess said...

Crazy awesome. You look so great in polka dots!

i think i may have to visit the comme store in chelsea and just sort of sob and try to touch things while the sales people give me odd looks.
also brogues are the best! i think i need moreof them. they are so comfy and rain proof- very important.

I love those Teen Vouge ads, so wrong its right!
Did you see the Taylor Momsen one?I thought you might be into it , her being a "young Courtney Love" and all.

I second flats on runways! We need to see more of that.

I am loving the polka dots in this post - yr dress and those shorts in the first runway photo! Yay, so great.

P.S. Ha, I wished I made that last post of mine up! But no, it really existed. It's part of an episode of a cartoon called The Venture Bros. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this show as it is fucking AWESOME. It's such a crazy show about super villains plotting against this incompetent scientist named Dr. Venture; it's extremely well done and HILARIOUS. The creators are huge Bowie fans so there are Bowie references throughout.

Diane said...

D'oh, I forgot - here's the actual video clip of the Bowie scene that's in my post.

Becca Jane said...

I love your polka dot dress, and I also loved that Collection. I agree - flat shoes on the runway are awesome

B a la Moda said...

Nice outfit! The brogues are super. I love the color the most. White goes with anything, right?

Stay awake. ;)

Sitting in the waiting room. But, but why does no one flag up that that Commmes des Garcons model should so be sitting in the waiting room? I mean, she is particularly skinny - is she even still alive today? I was enjoying the blog up til then, loving your aesthetics. Just a bit of a shocking skeletal image there...sorry.
