Cardinal Sin

Heeeeellllllllooooooooo for the first time in many, many days. I sincerely apologize for the impromptu hiatus...But I've been swamped with stuff to do. But it's good to be back. Thanks to the faithful support, readers. You guys keep me going. Keep the love comin'! And check out all the songs on my music player...I hope to be a great source for both music and fashion in the coming months (:

I wanted to talk about the Cory Kennedy + Ksubi + Cobrasnake shirt.

I absolutely adore Cory and her style, know many people that know her and even hang out in the same places and with the same people she did before she became an internet star. However, I'd like to ask Miss Kennedy, what is this outrage? A t shirt with a picture of her and Paris Hilton for $100+ ?? I understand that these are limited edition and are a pretty big deal (seeing as they involve three of the most respected figures in culture), but I think they're a bit pricey. Cory isn't yet an internationally famous designer, nor are the regular Cobrasnake shirts this expensive. The shirt itself ain't all that bad, but I think future collabs like this should carry a smaller price tag.

It's that time of the year again...The fashion giants come out to play and they're here to show off their best. Here are some highlights:

Bruno Pieters

Bruno Pieters wowed the crowd with slim, menswear looks, working the runway with some tidy and classy pieces. Monochrome never looked better.


Playful, charming, yet elegantly sophisticated, Devastee's pieces are all a girl could want in her closet. Eerie illustrations and quirky colors complete this collection and brand it with an A+.


Bless No 34 excited the audience with their futuristic and chic looks, which looked disheveled and pulled-together at the same time. Complete with a warehouse location filled with sports cars and bikes, this show was one to remember.

A.F. Vandevorst

This collection was titled "Angels with Dirty Faces", which conjures for me a contradictory image. The husband-and-wife designer duo put the models in some lovely clothing, smeared their faces with ink, and pushed them out on to the catwalk. The result? Something quite impressive.

Gaspard Yurkievich

Just take a look at those vibrant patterns...Who can resist? With the theme of Paris in the 70's and its muses during that time, Yurkievich certainly does a wonderful job in evoking the extravagant, chic look that was iconic during that decade.

Isabel Marant

Isabel Marant is always a favorite of mine for carefully crafted pieces that add a dash of spunk to every outfit. This collection is full of pieces that are no different, as Marant goes mad for plaid. Which reminds me, if you're interested in scoring some Isabel Marant from past seasons on sale, visit www.creaturesofcomfort.us.

I really love your blog and wish you posted more. It's nice to find a fashion blog where the author doesn't think Mika is some kind of musical iconoclast. I mean, you actually seem to know music! And that's rare. Although, I'm sorry to say it, Nino Quincampoix is a bit drippy in a Ross-from-Friends kind of way, and his HEAD IS HUGE. Amelie, of course, can do no wrong in my eyes, so I guess he's the right guy for her! Love, in a dusky gold Montmartre light. XX
