kris van assche looks like he's finally comfortable with his dior appointment. this collection has an effortless fluidity i found lacking in previous collections. this looks fantastic! so he had some big shoes to fill but now i'm saying hedi who? (if only i were thin enough to wear any of it!)

i don't love paying $20 for glossy fashion mags, but this one looks like a must have from another magazine coming out mid Feb. an ode to the lovely rei kawakubo/CDG is making it worth the price for me. i can't get enough. (read the preview here)
this spread has also intrigued me to search out more work by the photographer Lina Scheynius
and while we're on the topic i thought these looks from Dries Van Noten's menswear fall 2010 show was another nod to the aforementioned designer/brand. (photos via wwd.com) agreed? XO JS

maybe it's the time i've had off, but seeking modern comfort seems to be a daily task. i could live in these amazing knits by xavier brisoux.
the modernity and simplicity of the silhouettes make them oh-so dreamy.

i never expected to be so inspired by what is deemed a tourist destination here in the bay area. it had such a heavy presence, and i wanted these photographs to reflect that. i also imagined what it must have been like to live in the hole without any light, does one find out who they really are through isolation? the thought and aesthetics of the place were truly inspiring.

Can't wait to sample the Series 2 fragrances by Six Scents.
i'm sure they're all amazing, but WHISKEY CARAMELISE, you have my attention.
anyone have a favorite from series 1?
which one do you want to try first?

there's been talk of this fragrance for years. it's interesting that the release is coming out on the heels of Margiela's exit. it seems true to the brand and can't wait to smell/own it.
i usually think the pre-fall collections are a bit of a snooze fest, but mr. elbaz just might change all of that with this amazing collection. the styling is spot on and out of control, i love everything about these clothes/photographs. here are a few of my favorite looks via style.com
this is the stuff dreams are made of.
just may get back to sketching fashion.
so much inspiration.

is it time to kick out the Mach 3...it's been oh so good to me over the years. But I might be willing to switch it up for this one from Baxter of California. I've tried other products of theirs and have been quite happy!

front man from sigur ros is branching out on his own.
like the last album, i find the sound a lot cleaner and honestly a bit harder to stomach,
but still quite enjoyable.
you can get a new MP3 here.
