2007: Better Than 2006

It is New Year's Eve, my dears! Tonight, we should all step out in four-inch heels, dance to cool music, drink champagne, and wear short little frocks like this:

Of course, I myself will be doing none of the above, as I will be at Paige's house with a bunch of our friends. For your information, we will probably play Twister, listen to some lame alterna-pop (All American Rejects, anyone?), and watch Disney Channel. I will be wearing some ancient jeans with a patch in the butt and some three- or four-year-old Chuck Taylors, paired tastefully with a gray tank top, which is cut in such a way that it inevitably reveals my bra straps every time I wear it. Yeah, I'm pretty sure tonight is going to be a blast.

I know, I have been horribly negligent.
Here is a pretty shoe:

Steve Madden, $70.

Merry Christmas!

Karen Walker

I was thoroughly let down by most of what designers had to offer for spring. All the shows were long ago and I have yet to write up a single one. However, there is a certain designer who has been getting better and better as the seasons progress- Karen Walker. I am quite fond of her superhero-inspired fall collection and have taken liberal amounts of inspiration from it when getting dressed in the past months:

I didn't like the collection quite enough at the time to write a post about it, but now, looking back through it, I wish I had. Piled-on neutrals interspersed with delightful shots of electric colors and patterns... an absolutely ideal fall wardrobe. Anyhow, I digress. What I really want to talk about is her spring collection. Take a look:

This is exactly the sort of stuff I like... A flippy denim miniskirt and argyle cardigan paired with menacing black boots; a hastily belted pink taffeta prom dress; a diamond patterned sweater tucked into a short tattered skirt. You'd think the whole girly-with-a-spin thing should be really tired, but Karen Walker took that and made it new again, and I totally love her for it. This collection is just so boppy and pleasant and now I can't wait for spring!
