I really like your blog. I stumbled across it from reading "What I Wore." The Great Gatsby and The Cather in the Rye are my two of my favorite books. And I love Franny and Zooey too. I'm really surprised though that you didn't style any of Holden's looks with the Buffalo plaid (like his Hunting Hat) because that is a big part of the book. Have you thought about doing Jane, Sunny, Allie, Stradlater (he'd be fun! He's basically a Chace Crawford ala Gossip Girl), DB, or Sally before? I think Jane would be a lot of fun too because she is also the "catch he wants to save" like you said.
I'm also surprised you haven't done Edward Cullen or any of the Cullens from Twilight. Those books are pretty big; it'd be cool to see what you think they'd wear. It'd be cool to see Nick Carraway from Gatsby too.
Thanks so much. I get a lot of comments about the buffalo plaid hat, but I figure since everybody knew this already it didn’t make sense. No big deal. I have thought about doing the others but just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I will never do a post on the twilight books. Good day.

I think I was the bad guy from the 80’s movie. And this concludes my coverage of NYFW. Thank you tumblr, it’s an experience I won’t soon forget.
Sorry, not into the tailoring on these pants. The plaid ones look quite like a pair of pajamas I have. Also, not digging that fur coat situation-maybe it’s just the picture but it doesn’t look like it justifies the price tag I’m betting it has.
Nobody expects Steven Alan collections to be particularly forward thinking. Overall, I thought this was pretty amazing—very clean lies, lots of layering but not in an overwhelming way. There were lots of playful prints in the womenswear and some very interesting knitwear pieces for men. I dunno, this is the way I dress all the time. Very Holden Caulfield, very.
So I may have covered this already but I used to intern for Gilded Age. I can tell you that the quality of these clothes is near unparalleled. Having said that, I’ve been keeping a close eye on what my old boss has been up to and when I finally got a chance to scope this out, I was thrilled. It’s a great evolution of where the brand has been and owns the American Trad more than anything I’ve seen in a while. I was particularly impressed by the outerwear, there seems to be a lot more thought put into it this fall than last. I won’t get to into the womenswear but it was a great compliment to the men’s pieces, I’d say it straddles the line of Opening Ceremony and J.Crew…weird. Good show.
Hey guys. It’s fashion week time, I’m stoked. Woohoo fantastic. I’ll try and keep up the usual posts here as best I can but expect a little bit of different content this week. Some collection reviews, some vids, some other stuff and whatnot. Glad to be here, you take care now.
So, this may shock you…but I love X-MEN. Gasp. Shock. Awe. Wah. I really need to do more superheroes on here and do forgive me for being brief today, life has been quite busy lately. Here we have Storm also known as Halle Berry. She can control weather and is pretty badass. Cool, done.

Hey everybody, fashion week is coming up…really soon actually. Just a heads up that I’ll be going as part of tumblr’s whole nyfw initiative. I am excited, thank you for your time and have a great night. Eat some chocolate, have a glass of wine, have two what do I care?
“There are a lot of elements about the fashion world that wear on you, like going to eight shows a day. And every time you walk in it is like walking into a high school cafeteria: who is wearing what and who is talking to whom and who is sitting where.”—Adam Rapoport, former Style Director of GQ.
A couple weeks ago I asked for some suggestions of Asian folklore for Textbook and got tons of responses, so thanks for that. The first one up is Ameonna, a Japanese rain spirit. Legend has it that she exists as a cloud in the daytime and rain in the evening. Pretty snazzy. Collection wise I was happy to hit up Tsumori Chisato and you know, Rodarte because I use them for everything. Hooray for rain spirits.
