Jeffrey Campbell S/S 2011

It's no secret that I came from a small town, to say the least. Even though my hometown stakes a claim as British Columbia's "Northern Captial" it's seriously lacking in a few key departments. The first and foremost is fashion. Now I could write an entire entry, maybe two, on how much my town suffers from this and what I would change. But my point being, despite my town's obvious handicap I always considered myself to be on top of fashion trends and such with the help of the world wide web.

It wasn't until I moved to the big city that I realized how horrifically wrong I was. It wasn't until my first midterm exam that I even heard of Jeffrey Campbell via fellow classmate and fashion blogger Erin - La Fille Mystere. Shocking I know

But now I can say I'm in love! Although I could never afford a pair of the oh-so-popular "Litas" and standing at already 5'7"-8" doubt I could pull them off without looking like an amazon in the worst possible way

But one day I WILL own a pair of his fabulous shoes. And the spring 2011 video lookbook is my favorite I've seen in a while. The shoes are incredible, I love how this brand is paving a new way for shoes, creating silhouettes and heights I've never even dreamed of seeing. My top pick would be the ones being worn by the model standing on the tail gate with the dog or the floral litas. Definitely an inspiration to save my dollars this spring!

My favorite part of this video has to be when the girls "rock the boat" it's an old inside joke from my lovely little hometown <3 won

The Millinery Post

Well the semester has finally come to a close. Sorry for my inherent absence, it's been... crazy, to say the least. I have two more projects due, some catch up work and one last final.
Last Tuesday was my last Fashion Elements class. Although the course was ridiculously easy I'm going to miss it. I look forward to hopefully having the same instructor in the future.

What I would give to rummage through that woman's wardrobe! In our last class we went over millinery and she brought in an original Philip Tracey hat :D
For those of you ashamed to not know who he is, myself included, he's responsible for most of Lady Gaga's head wear.
Although her hat was much more "ready-to-wear" than Lady Gaga's it was really inspirational to see and a great way to finish the semester.

I thought I might share with you guys my favorite milliner, Piers Atkinson. I first found him through this recent editorial paying hommage to the works of Tim Burton.

After doing a little more research I completely fell in love with his work. Warning, the following is picture heavy. It was so difficult to pick favorites!

From the completely outlandish to the very appropriate for an evening out I definitely admire his creativity. It's crossed my mind a few times to try and create some unique head wear for my final collection. Something I've never tried before that's for sure.

Anyways if you'd like to see more of Piers Atkinson's work you can find it at his website here http://www.piersatkinson.com/
Over the Christmas holidays I will try and update with something more substantial

One day I'll be famous

This is how I would like to wake up every morning

Followed by a trip to Tiffany's ♥ 
But for now, an all-nighter with Starbucks Tazo Tea and a trip to the library tomorrow will do.
