Long Live McQueen!

The fashion world has been in shock with the death of Alexander McQueen. He was the designer who took the biggest risks and never cared what others thought. I really admired that. I loved his designs because they were quintessentially English. He will be missed dearly. Here are some of my favourite McQueen outfits.

I really wanted this dress from his Resort 2009 collection. So chic and with the smoke print, added the element of cool. I was so jealous when I saw Sarah Jessica Parker wearing it!

Federation Rules!

Been checking out the Federation online store and I found this dress. It's freakin' awesome! It reminds me of the Nirvana smiley face. I might go and check it out in a shop before I buy it online. Sometimes clothes look cool on a model but when you try it on, it looks totally wrong! I get it all the time with my height. I guess not all of us can be blessed with long legs. I have a couple of Federation dresses and they all fit like a glove so I'm guessing this should be ok. It looks like it suppose to be worn loose which is awesome! Loose clothes suit me. Oh and the price is a steal at only $108!

Peace and Heart

Grammy Winners!

Sometimes the Grammys are hard to watch but this year I enjoyed it. Maybe because there were a lot more performances. Here are some of my favourite Grammy moments:
Green Day win Best Rock Album for "21st Century Breakdown".
Green Day's kick-arse peformance of "21 Guns" with the cast of "American Idiot".
Imogen Heap finally wins a Grammy! She was robbed last time. Here she is pictured with her Grammy. Winning Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical for "Ellipse".
I think Stephen Colbert is f**king funny. Here he is with his Grammy which he won in the Best Comedy Album category for "A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All!".

I know these were probably not the Grammy highlights that people expect. I'm so over hearing how great Beyonce and Taylor Swift are. The whole world gets it. I have nothing against these two artist but there is more to music than all the commercial stuff. Imogen Heap deserves her Grammy. She's so original, is a great songwriter and she isn't as well known but she is just as deserving of recognition. That's all for my favourite highlights.

Peace Out!

Green Day win at the Grammys!

I'm so happy that Green Day won a Grammy! Their album "21st Century Breakdown" won for best rock album beating out the likes of U2 and AC/DC. "21st Century Breakdown" is a concept album just like "American Idiot". It's not as political but the messages are just as powerful. I definately recommend the album to anyone. Plus Green Day deserve recognition. They work so hard and are great live! Oh and I just love what they're wearing. Very smart! Tre Cool is definately working the pinstripes!

Rock On!

Notes and Outfit

The weather is turning sour. Where has summer gone again? Crazy weather = staying inside and doing something productive like jotting notes. I have an endless supply of notepads. Too many to count actually. I'm currently loving this Hello Kitty one which I bought recently. I haven't really bothered to dress up nicely today. Actually I don't really dress that nicely. I like the casual , I kind of got out of bed look. Today I'm wearing a leather jacket from Just Jeans, plank bow ace tee by Federation, jeans by Lee and shoes by Annapelle.

Peace Out!
