More scans from HUGE magazine. I've cropped some stuff out due to bad photoshopping and laziness.

Thanks, I bought it at Ver-sayce

While flipping channels several nights ago, I came across the movie Showgirls. I was never tempted to rent it, so I am so glad I got to catch it on TV. It's so awful, it's good. If you're into camp, strippers and the sleazy side of Vegas, then you must see this movie.

Also, worth mentioning are the costumes. If you like fringe, studs, leather, and motorcycle jackets, then you also need to see this movie.

Amado Garoto Armado

Picked up some magazines last week including HUGE magazine. Here are some scans from your truly. This ed makes me want to find my DIY tophat, when I was a goth lolita 3 years ago for Halloween. It also want those suspenders. I've been looking for one like those since my last trip to Japan. Anyone know where to find them?

She's A Vamp

While cleaning my computer I came across some photos of Maila Nurmi aka Vampira. Here are my favorites. I have to say I think the 2nd one is my absolute favorite.

*I saved these photos from the net as I found them, so I don't know who to credit. Sorry!

Oh I can't wait to see the shoes on

Every time PFW rolls around, I get antsy for the CDG gang to show off their stuff. Rei, Junya and Tao rarely disappoint me (especially Mr. Watanabe).

The Comme Des Garcons line always inspires me. Although I don't find it nearly as poetic as her bride collection, but beautiful nontheless.

Junya Watanabe is hands down one of my favorite designers. His ability to balance avant garde with utility, romanticism with edge, and extravagence with minimalism never fails to astound me. I swear it took all of my might to not clean out his store while I was in Tokyo about 3 years ago (this was when he did the collection with the trench coats and crazy spiked wigs). Luckily nothing I could afford fit. I'd give my left arm to pick his brain and watch him work for just one day.

Tao Kurihara is also amazing. I'm not the biggest fan of how her collections are styled but her individual pieces are usually strong. I'd wear any of the dresses below with some silver doc martens. I'm also a big fan of the skirts on the right, and the top in the middle.

Just Can't Get Enough

Hopped on over to to see close-ups of the Nina Ricci shoes. I have 2 pairs of Nina Ricci platforms and they're actually very comfortable and easy to walk in, so it makes these shoes even more tempting. I swear I need the hot pink. I NEEEED.

I <3 Olivier

While everyone is going gaga over Balmain, I've been oggling Nina Ricci's latet collection, and possibly Olivier's last for the label. I'm sure you have all seen the latest Gareth and Balmain collections on numerous blogs, so I'll stick with Olivier.

Olivier Theyskens is someone I've been following for awhile now. First designing under his own name, then under Rocha, and now Nina Ricci. I love this collection with it's hard edge and amazing towering platform shoes (the shoes totally remind me of Luxirare).

PS: These shoes look promising, unless they're pants with boots attached. In which case, I retract my comment.

PPS: I told myself I wouldn't focus on new collections, but unfortunately, I have no access to my computer with all my archived collections, scans, and saved images. Hopefully, I'll have a more original post soon.

Pucci is one of those collections where I would judge if I wanted to see the rest of the collection based upon the first picture on style. One look at Pucci's brightly colored patterns and I was off to look at a different designer. The general look was never my thing. But they've undergone a tremendous face-lift thanks to their new designer Peter Dundas.

I personally like this collection a lot, but I can't decide if it's because I'm surprised as hell, or because it's really actually that great. Probably somewhere in between. I'm don't really know much about Pucci since I never really liked the look, but I feel like this collection might alienate its clientele. But then again, I was actually thinking about how Pucci, among other design houses, would utilize the prevailing trends seen in this season's fashion weeks. I suppose I got my answer.

I've separated the photos because I was having a hard time editing. I've separated them into general categories: fur, dresses, prints, and random shit. Click the pictures to make them bigger.
