to infinity, and beyond

Helllooooo. I was at Knott's Scary Farm yesterday, and yeah, it was scary.

I want to start off by highlighting a couple of my personal favorite labels I can't live without. Click pictures for bigger size.

First is... KAREN WALKER!
Quirky, fun, yet classy, Karen Walker defines street chic. Her stuff can be worn on the street casually and also works at fancy places at night. From eyewear, clothing, to jewelry, Karen Walker immortalizes fashion with unbelievable style. Go Karen! These pictures are from her Fall 2007 ready-to-wear collection.

My second favorite is the more obscure, KTZ, short for Kokon to Zai.
Idolized by hipsters everywhere from London to Japan, KTZ sets the standard for avant-garde fashion. Graphics galore! Kokon to Zai is actually a chain of I believe two shops, one in London and another one in Paris. They carry brands such as Tsumori Chisato [love her!], Vivienne Westwood, Alexandre Herchcovitch, Raf Simmons, Gareth Pugh, Bernhard Willhelm, and others, as well as their own KTZ brand.

Moving on.

COATS! I live in Los Angeles where coats are rather unnecessary. But it's fun to wear them nonetheless and have people staring at you. If you live somewhere where it's actually cold during winter, consider these as your must-haves for the season.

Mayle $940 tweed Vera coat
3.1 Phillip Lim $655 Hunter plaid coat
Whyred $695 Moss coat

Lover $595 Colorway cape
Lyell $690 Tina Tripp coat
A.P.C. $458 Duffel coat (with removeable hood)

Item of the day is.....

Eley Kishimoto $850 Galaxy print ruffle neck dress
available at Creatures of Comfort on Melrose Ave in Los Angeles

I'm really into minimalist clothing these days.. Like Dior Homme by Hedi Slimane, Helmut Lang, Jil Sander, etc. One designer that really pulls off the minimalist look well is Ohne Titel. From all black, to a mix of colorful prints, this designer's approach to style is sure to sweep even the most adamant of skeptics off their feet!
The collection consisting mostly of black was the Fall/Winter 2007 collection and the other two colorful looks were recently featured on the runway as the Spring/Summer 2008 collection.
