Be a Wild Thing… to the MAX!

This year for Halloween, instead of opting for the traditional college slutty girl costume I was going to go for something original, something of-the-moment, something fun…I was going to be Max from Where the Wild Things Are! I thought I’d find that perfect onesie (who knows where!), a cute little gold crown and I’d make a pair of ears. After looking at one of my favorite fashion inspiration (I say, inspiration because rarely can I ever afford anything in the store) websites, Opening Ceremony I found my costume! Spike Jonze (director of the movie) teamed up with Opening Ceremony (the clothing store) to create a Where the Wild Things Are collection. I was elated! I’ve loved the book ever since I was a little kid and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the fur onesie the models on the website were sporting! One problem: the onesie is $610!!! I’m sorry, I know Opening Ceremony is expensive, but $610 for a onesie! That’s ridiculous! The entire collection is adorable (all the fur is fake, too!), but there is no way I would ever pay that much for something I would wear on only a few occasions.

Anyways, moral of the story…1) See Where the Wild Things Are in theaters October 16th, 2) Make sure to listen to Wake Up by Arcade Fire nonstop before the film comes out and 3) If you’re planning on being Max for Halloween go to Joanne’s fabric store and make your own damn onesie!

With Providence being only an hour away from Boston, I for one can’t stop thinking about the fact that Hermoine Granger/Emma Watson is that close to me! As we all know Emma Watson is currently a freshman at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. Emma is attempting to attend Brown as a normal college student. The only problem…well, apart from the fact that she is a movie star and the face of the Burberry ad campaign, she also managed to take these beautiful pictures for Vogue Italia!

Let’s just say this upfront, I’m a sucker for girl power movies. Charlie’s Angels, Spice World, it maybe a little embarrassing, but I secretly love them!  The newest girl power flick coming to theaters is directed by a former Angel, Drew Barrymore. Ellen Page plays the lead actress in what looks like a comedy about coming of age with the help of some roller derby. Are you guys going to go see Whip It ?

Look at how gorgeous Diane von Furstenberg was when she was young! She’s still gorgeous now obviously, but these photos are amazing!

Beautifully damaged…

Movies seem to influence the way I view life. In many cases, some of my favorite movies are ones where the main character is incredibly beautiful, but seemingly damaged. Like the sisters in the Virgin Suicides or Nikki in Alfie, people’s faults are beautiful.  One of my favorite design duo’s (as you should already know if you read my blog) Rodarte’s Spring 2010 collection was inspired by the same message. They had the idea that some could be both “scarred and beautiful.” While they used many of the same draping/wrapping techniques, the new prints are far for tribal than ones they’ve used in the past.  I have to say as a Rodarte fan, I’m not so sure I love the collection. The pieces at the beginning are a little to intense for me. The open skin in the first few pieces is supposed to represent a woman pulling herself back together while exposing her wound. A little heavy for me, but nonetheless beautiful. If anything their collection is more interpretive than wearable.
