she moved the transparency and got yelled at, +10 points for the pathetic losers

Sorry for the lack of posts lately (gosh, really can't say that enough). You can thank my social studies teacher for that. And, HEY, if any of you feel like throwing on a disguise and coming to class to take my 200 point Revolutionary War test for me too, you are more than welcome!

Anyways, I'm finally doing Fashion Week coverage. I liked the obvious ones, like Christopher Kane and Luella, but when I came across these designers I'd never heard of I thought I'd post. As for the editing skills, bear with me, I am still trying to figure out photoshop.I'm not totally obsessed with any of these like I was with other collections I saw (more posts later), in all of them there are a few looks I love and the rest are sort of "eh", as indicated by my captions. What do you think?

Also, I know you are all as tired of me babbling on about Belle as you are of the lace trend, but she entered a contest over at Queen Gilda and seriously deserves to win. Best dance moves and MC Hammer impression ever, hands down. So as you're getting on your Groucho Marx glasses and brushing up on the Battle of Bunker Hill for me, please head on over and leave a comment for Belle!

lovely roundup - i just know the eley kishimoto tights will be featuring in my dreams from now on...

The Stylish Wanderer said...

Im fraid I really did not like Christopher Kane. I seem to be the only vogue-reading person who doesnt like that collection.
I thought elie kishimito copied marc jacobs fall rtw color schemes a little too much, but I do agree with you on the last collection.

Little Miss Quirky (a.k.a. Gabby) said...

Ooh, I really love Eley Kishimoto's collection, but I have to agree about the one dress and Lisa Frank folders! I used to be slightly obsessed with those as a toddler...

Tavi said...

I loved Christopher Kane, I'm a sucker for sequiny things, but it sure ain't everyone's cup of tee.
Ah, now I see what you mean with the color schemes. Man...yeah, the last dress in the top row of the Eley collage reminds me of Marc Jacobs a little too much...

Cakemaster said...

I really like Eley Kishimoto's line. Probably has to do with my affinity to colour.
American History sucks bawlz. I'm in AP us history (we call it APUSH lol) and it's like the worst decision everrrr. I'm actually supposed to be doing some hw for that right now....

Amelia said...

I love Eley Kishimoto, but I agree with The Stylish Wanderer that it's a little MJ-ish. Good luck with school stuff.

Knight Cat said...

ah, u.s histpry 1, i remember it well. if you do need help though, don't ask belle, we were in the same class and she did nothing but doodle and stare at the wierd androgenous video game character that was the backround on a computer screen, yeah.

Sydney Speel said...

kishimoto was really nice.

if you liked that, maybe check out abaete 2009 runway show.

Sam said...

haha, ben's making me do a post like this too. I'm not going to listen to him. =P

but anyways, I love Jaegar London's collection, it's amazing!

Coco Crush said...

I think your blog is awesome, your writing is really nice/fun to read!
Probably many asked it before but how old are you? Just curious..
Like the collections you choose, your photoshop skills are not bad at all!

beccajanie said...

I love your thoughts on the collections - very spot on/funny at the same time. And I do remember that lisa frank stuff and I agree that dress 5 is reminiscent.

jessica ann said...

mmm i love fashion week! i'm happy i stumbled upon your blog, you're so cute! xo

Tavi said...

abigail-all I do in SS is hum tony award-winning musical hits to myself. It really pisses my teacher off, and she sings ALL THE TIME. She gave a kid a detention for humming. Wtf dinosaur teacher lady?

coco crush-I'm twelve. Holler.
