runway: Dior Spring 2009

All I have to say is Oo-la-lah! The fantasy present in Dior's Spring Collection is truly to die for. The exaggerated neck lines are a perfect complement to the over the top drapery of the fabric. A little Midsummer Nights Dream...

runway: Chanel Spring 2009

This Spring look for bold textures and prints. But don't forget the sophistication.

Typical Friday Night

Sexy & Silly

The peep toe ankle boot is for all you cali ladies. It is completely adorable, paired best with skinnies or a lil' black dress. But seriously, for my fellow East coasters, they just seem pretty fucking silly. I mean, I am working hard enough to keep warm here I don't need holes in my shoes!

Spring-Summer 2009

My favorite campaigns for spring/summer 2009. If you know me at all, you know one thing, I am all about the black and white!

Claudia Schiffer for Yves Saint Laurent

Heidi Mount for Chanel

Giselle Bundchen for DIOR

Just a few of my favorite looks from the Grammy's. I know its been a few weeks, but seriously check out this genius shit. Clean lines & wonderful hues.I don't actually wear color, but I appreciate it. 


California & Brooklyn

Swear to god, can you imagine the wardrobe that I need to have to live comfortably in both of these places.

If your BORED, your BORING.

This statement is so far from the truth. I am bored, yet I don't believe you could call me boring. Shit,  I spent the evening painting, catching up on fashion week, cooking chinese, and watched some bad television, and still, I was fucking bored as hell. I hope no one else had this unfortunate experience of unsatisfying activities today. Seriously.

Dirty Martini

The fact of the matter is......a Dirty Martini is the shit. It is the perfect cocktail. Simple, tasty, hangover free and nonfat. My Mom and I were out getting cocktails the other night, and I ordered a Dirty Martini. She was all "Arlin that's not lady like".
I am sorry but I disagree completely. The fact that the alcohol s not masked by a bunch of fruity juices and garnishes, reminds you as a consumer that, that shit is alcohol! You can't get dance on the table drunk unless you really want to. I feel that being able to realize when your shwasted is the most important part of consuming alcohol. Otherwise you wake up in the morning with a bad fucking head ache and no money in your wallet.

San Francisco-Brooklyn

The other day as I was driving across the Golden Gate Bridge on a perfect sunny California day. I cam to the realization that I have lost my edge, the reason why I get up in he morning has been lost. Jaded, I have been unable to be inspired, yet, I am surrounded by magnificence both in San Francisco and Brooklyn. The fashion, music, cultures and tenacity of the people in both of these cities that I live in is fabulous, and so here I want to share what I experience daily from my environments. Hopefully this will remind me why I get up in the morning and inspire others to live on the edge too.
