Apocalypse fa-shun.

I've only given this a little bit of thought.

If it is the end of the world, fashion is going to be the very LAST in what you're thinking about. Unless, its for survival techniques. Specifically, intimidation and camouflage. There are always two kinds of people in post-apocalyptic movies: foragers, and hunters. 

Personally speaking, I would be a content to forage and hide wearing simple camouflage clothing for the rest of my life. I would be content to avoid all confrontation, like a little turtle. No more high heels, make up or jewellery, just camo and the basics for me.

Iridescent VS Holographic

I've been having a little too much fun with Pinterest, and thanks to, I've learned about! You can make your own magazine with the ease of a few clicks, so here's mine on the difference between iridescent and holographic.

$55,000 for this?

I think that the Olsen twins have finally started watching Very Mary Kate. The girls collaborated with artist Damien Hirst to conceive, tah dah! Perscription pill bags. If you feel like you can't live without one, check it out here. At least some of the proceeds go to Unicef. Buyer beware, people (or crackheads) may try to rip the pills off your bag. I can smell the DIYs coming. Can you?

Dear Nicolas, you're breaking my heart.

As almost everyone already knows, Nicolas Ghesquière is leaving Balenciaga after 15 years of service. I couldn't be more upset! His Motorcycle bag was my very first (and last) designer handbag purchase, and that was only after I spent the summer of  '06 making poutine and freeze scraping gum off chairs at UWO's The Spoke Club. I minimum-waged my way to a supple red leather bag, which is now a little worse for wear. I broke a stud while dancing like a maniac, and replaced it with an actual piece of hardware. For SHAME!
