Pick Me Up.

OH GOSH. School's started. We're into Week Two. This is something I can do. (Yes I can, yes I can, yes I can!!!) Cross Country, possibly a play, homework, and MAKING THINGS.
I'd better do that. EEEE.
So, because I have crap to do, here's something quick.

1. Matt & Kim Cameras.
I've been feeling crappy about the future and what not, and there is nothing like some New York to help me out. (Wicked Single art, too!)

2. Alexa Chung for Madewell.
Now, I don't want to rain on everyone's parade, but all I'm seeing is high-end Goodwill. Now, I'm not dissing Goodwill, because I absolutely adore them, my local Goodwill, and it's amazing finds, but for Madewell? For Alexa? I was more impressed with the previews. I found them more interesting and sartorially satisfying. Maybe they were just styled better. Maybe I just missed a few items that are already sold out.
But I do like:
The Aimee Fisherman-Knit Sweater.
Great lines. I love the shortness and medium chunky ribbing and details.
I'm on the fence about:

The Annie Blouse
It's nice. I'm a velvet fan. But doesn't it remind you of this dress she wore on It's On with Alexa Chung? (I miss that show.) Which I believe is Betsey Johnson. Correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm also on the fence about:
The Greta Coat
The sleeve length kills me. Great color though. Also, great inside lining.

But I do love:

The Silk Margot Skirt
You can't deny Annie Hall genius. But I'll grab it at Goodwill.


  1. So... I said I would comment.

    I am really tired.

    I like the Matt and Kim song. I agree with the fact that the artwork struck me. Plus, all of the songs on Grand sounded similar (although they rocked). It's nice that this one is different.

    I also agree with your Goodwil comments. Haha! And I can't decide if the Annie blouse is sexy or not.

    Sweet dreams!

  2. There's another l at the end of Goodwill.
