Had a pretty crappy day today, which is a lot to say since today is Monday. My wonderful day started off with some guy jumping off into the tracks and D train was suspended "until further notice." Which means I had to walk to a bus stop to get on the N train and transferred at Atlantic-Pacific for the D train. Which also means that I was 25 minutes late to global hist. And for English I had to do that group presentation for The Bell Jar, in which I was Esther Greenwood(don't ask how that happened). I didn't really do anything much besides sitting still and saying a couple of lines. but I still got pissed off. This paragraph probably won't make sense to you at all, unless you live in New York or have a particular strange taste for rants so just skip ahead.
>> Nothing like Hanneli Mustaparta in an editorial to cheer up your day. Even though I'm not the biggest fan of her style or her blog, I've always love the way she could energize almost everything. The former model and now style icon wore a series of quirky ensembles for this Tank Magazine editorial, wearing resort-ready prints and bright colours. Egh, she pulled off that Jason Wu neon dress so flawlessly it hurts.
Been going through my "inspiration folder lately and I found this photo of a young Mila Kunis and lots of flowers. Which means that it reminds me of Meaham Kirchhoff's spring collections, especially the 2011 and 2012 ones. Whenever I saw teddy bears lately I think of Meadham Kirchhoff, or worse, Ted the movie. Just when you thought it's another chick flick about romance and crap it turns out to be about an overly-sexualized teddy bear.

Streetstyle-wise, most people seem to be wearing oversize coats with skirts of different lengths. Maybe it's just another backlash of the fall 2010 lady-like trend, but it's refreshing not to see any messy just-out-of-the-pool hair around. One of my favourites was this girl wearing two layers of bright stripes and a short leather skirt. Somehow she managed to pull off white ankle socks and blue stilettos. And the girl in the middle was sporting a reverse ombre!
Found this picture of Sky Ferreira for V Magazine, and girl was I in love. She's just, you know, casually portraying Madonna flawlessly. Not present-day Madonna, more like the 80's-at-the-top-of-her-game one. Not that she is not, but I love "Express Yourself" and "Vogue" much more than, say "Give Me All Your Luvin'."
And just to end this awful post on this awful day already, I recently rediscovered everything Florence + the Machine did in the past 2 years. Practically everything on Ceremonials is the same, which is exactly why I love Lungs much more. Needlessly to see, one of my favourite music video is "Rabbit Heart(Raise It Up)" because it's actually much more complex than it seems and it's like a twisted version of Alice in Wonderland.
