Summer shoe obsession.

May I present to you a great example when everything goes wrong except the shoes.

I’ll die for those babies. Absolutely gorgeous in every way. Even the color is amazing. God, I have yet to find who is it by. Anyone?

We promise it wasn’t because we were lazy.

Actually, that’s a lie. We were. Plus the IT people in Jemma’s company were being anal about non-work related internet usage and blocked every fricking site that is interesting. We have dark periods like this once in a while but then out of nowhere they would suddenly unblock everything and life at work would be good again. Do any of our PP girls work in companies who have implicitly anal IT people like mine? I hope they are monitoring me right now and reading this you anal bastards.

So what have happened in one month? Whaaaaa? It’s only been a month?
H1N1, we regret that this whole sad disease thing is caused by something that is pink. Our apologies. PS. Did you color your masks pink yet? pig
Rihanna loves her ass. No joke. Have you seen her latest photography obsession? She caught herself on camera pitching her own ass from a weird angle.
Heidi became a Pratt. Worst decision ever in her life.
– The tweeting phenomenon, honestly who does not have one? Even if you don’t you’ll still say that you do because it’s DEE thing now.
Twilight DVD allows us to replay every single scene with a shoot of Robert’s eyes 10 gazillion times.
Lucy’s random shoe obsession (I think she mentions the word SHOE at least 5 times a day everyday the past month)

PP fans (if there are still some in existence), please don’t unfan us.. promise we’ll work harder? 🙂

Wilfred.

logo

Date: Feb, 2006 (when the brand first launched)
Setting: Aritzia, Vancouver (sold exclusively at)
Key Event: Jemma laid eyes on Wilfred for the very first time and immediately fell in love
Reason: Wilfred’s Cashmere & Virgin Wool Coat (in every color)

Wilfred is an in-house clothing brand sold exclusively at the Vancouver based retail store and the designer behind this brilliancy is Tenille Magnuson (age 23 – 35 with a career based mind but creative and style conscious, just like her targeted customers). She is also the brain juice behind the Talbula Babaton line – one designer for two lines in the same store? No worries, there are visible differences between the two, Wilfred is more tailored towards our fashion-forward girlies whereas Talula is more on the professional side,, fashion forward it is!

Recently (like a few days ago), they launched a website for this baby. I love Wilfred, he’s the best and you got to see it to believe it. His looks are great for any body shape and are incredibly comfy and can be dressed up or down. God, so many perfect qualities, I might even marry him.

From Jimmy Choo’s 2009 Spring Ad Campaign
Something about the picture that is so sexy. Is it how the heel is creating a line in her inner thighs? No idea, but everything about the picture makes me want those shoes! So this is what good advertisement does to you.

psychadelic hip-hop chic: Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse

Back in 2001 when white graffiti graced the monogram speedy, it was pretty damn iconic.  The collaboration between Marc Jacobs and Stephen Sprouse, a fashion designer and artist of the 80’s, was remarkable.  They sold out instssneverfullpinkantly regardless of the fact that some folks didn’t think of it as a classic enough style to use the next year.  In 2006, Marc used Steven Sprouse’s infamous graffiti images again for more bags, shoes, and scarves, which sold out so quickly that to this date I still don’t remember seeing them. 

Eight years since their first collaboration, Marc Jacobs milks his success once again by launching another limited edition collection in tribute of Stephen Sprouse, who died in 2004.  This time, the iconic graffiti is rocking bright ass “day-glo” colors of the 60’s – shocking pink, limelight green, and sunburst orange, and Marc has added a twist by also using Sprouse’s neon colored rose motifs alongside the graffiti.  There’s something so modern and badass about the roses nowadays, probably to do with all that Christian Audigier / Ed Hardy ssflatsgreen1influence.  The product range is also so much larger with the patterns gracing the Neverfull (love it, can’t live without it) MM ($1360US), Speedy 30 ($1310US), glow in the dark leggings (should be around $400US), patent pumps and flats, and even a Skateboard with case ($8250US available only in NYC flagship).  Is it just me, or does graffiti smell like a soon-to-be classic in the Vuitton world?  Soon it’ll probably be a regular with shelf space next to the monograms.

In our opinion, Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse is so damn delicious.  I hated how Vuitton is so common and prevalent (not to mention all the knockoffs), but this ART/BAG collection made me love it once again with the psychadelic colors and hip hop chic.  I mean, was Marc high or really high when he decided to make those genius glow in the dark leggings?  What’s more is that proceeds are donated to Stephen Sprouses scholarship and Free Arts NYC.  How thoughtful!  Now you can help others, collect art, and look hot all at the same time.

So, would you splurge for it?ssleggingsgreen2
