From left to right:  Justin Ropers, Demonia Creepers, Frye chelsea boots, Pleaser Adore 1020 and Pleaser Xtreme 1020.

STEPHANIE & AXL

Earlier today I was out in the city melting while dropping off resumes.  I went to three different boutiques so I had to pick a single outfit that made sense in each atmosphere.  It was a bitch, I was sweating like a pig.  Summer is always a challenge for me - it's nearly impossible to look put together and remain comfortable.  All of my summer appropriate options are painfully casual.

Lately I've been fantasizing about a summer wardrobe consisting of unapologetic head to toe prints, some prime examples being House of Holland S/S 08 (best ever) and S/S 09.  The obsession began when Liz got a dress from the Stephanie & Axl collection (see it here).  I've seen her wear it so many different ways, and I don't think I will ever get sick of it.

SUCH A PLAYA

I tried on Cassette Playa's oversize printed silk charmeuse tees at Seven the other day.  They're ridiculously comfortable, and Cassette Playa always has the sickest prints.  It's been my number one obsession for a few months now.. eventually I'll have to get my hands on one of their tees.

UHU GARETH PUGH

Today at Seven we got a shipment from Gareth Pugh.  The first two photos are what I wore today - cash print mesh cardigan made by me, tee courtesy of Blood is the New Black (SO cute), April 77 jeans, Demonia creepers and a Maria Francesca Pepe choker.  The warped checker print top (!!!) is one of my favorite pieces - high impact, comfortable and easy to wear.  We also got in a few of the mirror finish polyurethane pieces, but the long vest is definitely my favorite piece - it can be inflated (check out Gareth Pugh's S/S 11 short film to see it inflated), but obviously looks just fine on it's own.  The last photos are Gareth Pugh's scythe ring which was originally from his S/S 10 collection - they retail for $165 and sold out fast last time so get your butt down to the store soon if you want one.

"Androgynous Pratt student documents his outfits that run the gamut from everyday college kid to flamboyant club kid. Anyone who throws on a pair of Balenciaga platforms or 9" fetish stilettos to cheer himself up is pretty awesome and entertaining in our opinion!"

TOPSHOP INSIDE-OUT BLOG
"Dressing up is what William loves to do most. This young designer from New York doesn’t dress for fashion but just to have fun and enjoy himself like the big kid that he is. Both adorned as a man and woman, his blog isn’t your common “check-out-my-outfit” type blog. It’s a journey into NYC’s crazy nightlife with party outfits straight from the young creative/transvestite scene. Juggling Timberland homemade platforms, tie-dye t-shirts, camo baggy trousers and an orange furry jacket, his looks are absolutely bonkers-awesom, leaving us wanting more everytime. We strongly recommend that you check out his collection too . Made from Japanese anime babe-printed fabric, it’s pretty darn cool."

LYNN & HORST
"I strongly believe in the comeback of Manga and will further explore its use in contemporary art and fashion. Most probably, 'sexualization' will become a core motif. In the first instance, I'd like to draw your attention to the reanimation of Anime by Dripping Lazers."
