Chesley Mclaren's clothing line Demoiselle. 
Spring 2008. 
A modern 1800s look. 
Chic, innovative and inspirational looks. 
I love these outfits. 

A simple red dress with an adorable white ribbon in the back. 

I love this purple empire coat. It reminds me of something a pirate would wear or the men during the 1800s. 

A beautiful lace dress with a bright red lace under. 

The dress and the coat are my absolute favorites. The dress is so simple and delicate and the coat is a beautiful color and the design is amazing.

singing in the dead of night
Take These broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly,
Into the light of the dark black night

-The Beatles

Paul Smith

I am in need of some new wardrobe for fall/winter. I have been looking for some inspiration for some new outfits and i have found Paul Smith's fall/winter 2008 collection. Here are some pictures from his Black collection. 

This outfit reminds of Annie Hall, but with a skirt. I love it, especially the bag. 

These are some pictures from his 'Paul' collection.

6 things that make me happy

i was tagged by poeta fit, non nascitur, thanks i love doing stuff like this =)

the rules are, mention the person who nominated you, list 6 important things that make you happy. tag 5 blogs. state the rules. notify them with a teeny comment on their blog that they have been nominated. =D

1) a single red balloon. 
i really like the movie Le Ballon Rouge and after watching a few times i loved the concept of just having one single red balloon. 

2) jazz music. 
listening to jazz artists like Benny Golson, Miles Davis, Art Farmer, and Thelonius Monk reminds me of new york. i can imagine walking around the city and passing central park and it puts me in a good mood. its food for my soul. 

3) old movies.
black and white, musicals, silent films, i love them all.

4) The song "My Favorite Things" 
When I was younger I loved The Sound of Music. 
"brown paper packages tied up with strings, these are a few of my favorite things"

5) Red velvet cupcakes. 

6) The Philippines.
Every summer growing up my parents would take me to the Philippines for vacation and i would spend my whole summer there with my entire family. Its my second home and i miss it and my family very much. I still can't believe I turned down a chance to go to school there for 4 years.

Distant Places

I am itching to go out and travel. I always get this feeling of wanting to go out and see the world. There is this strong uncontrollable urge in me that I can't explain. I just want to pack up and go.

I just want to fly away and leave everything behind me. I want to see the world. I want to see every inch of it. 

There are so many beautiful places to explore and visit. I want to explore and go to places that people can only image to visit in their dreams. I want to make my dreams into reality.

There is this hunger in me that wants to bask in all the wonderful different cultures. Its like I have this unsettling soul that just needs to constantly change her scenery and finds fulfillment in different places, other than home. 

My head is just spinning thinking about it. Traveling is so addicting. Once you have had a taste of what life outside of your home is like, you will want to see more. There is so much to do, so much to see. 

I have traveled many times before and every time it feels amazing just to be out and about. Just experiencing a whole range of eclectic cultures feels exhilarating. Visiting beautiful country-sides, walking through a crowded city, sleeping in hotels that have been there since the time of Louis XIV and just riding on a train to a new destination completely different only a few hours away. 

Traveling is what I love. If I could just pack up and leave right now, I would. I need to experience so much more.

Coco Chanel

I watched the Lifetime channel movie on Coco Chanel Saturday night and I must say Chanel is definitely a wonderful designer. Though the movie did not have the best dialogue in the "professing of love" scenes with its stereotypical lines, for an introduction to the life of one of the world's most inspiring, innovative, fashion-forward designers, it was good. 

Just watching the movie, I became inspired and wish that I could create beautiful garments that many people adored and loved. Chanel was an amazing designer who was so ahead of her time. She did not care if her clothing was so out of the ordinary that people did not understand it. She did what she did because she loved what she was doing and it was her passion.

I love movies like this, that show these amazing and talented people who show the world their amazing creations. 

I am even more excited for Coco avant Chanel movie starring Audrey Tautou (one of my favorite actresses) which is suppose to come out next year. Something to look forward to in the future.
