Fashionista Origami

Posted in artwork, creativity, designer, funk by fashionista514 on October 17, 2009
Why is origami so indefinately cool? Why is it even more appealling and insane when transformed into fashion? It seems to be one of those things that holds infinite amount of mystery and endless simplistic beauty. Making creatures, forms, geometrics and patterns out of a mere square of paper. Gives you inspiration to think of all the things you can do with other materials if Hilroy can become a lotus flower, box, or crane…
It seems designers have more than once picked up on this distinguished art, and applied it to their work. Pleating, definition and the creation of abstract forms seems to be a signature in Galliano’s work with Dior. Phillip Tracey makes glorious hats that borrow the sharp sophisticated edge from this refined oriental art. Gareth Pugh continues to shock and influence the fashion world with his formed bodices and surreal characterized models. Origami it seems can be interpreted so many different ways… from uptight, to fantasy.

Oh the infinite amount of ideas that spring out of everything and everywhere!

Hope everyone’s Friday is beautiful!

Love Package from Chrystina :)

Posted in contest, friends, friendship, funk, gift, giveaway, inspiration, lipstick, my man, prize, thank you by fashionista514 on June 27, 2009
So if you didn’t already know, I was the runner-up winner for the GORGEOUS and poetic Chrystina’s NARS contest/giveaway (out of 100 peeps yo – soooo amazing)!!! If you aren’t already following her beautiful thoughts, go IMMEDIATELY… RIGHT NOW to her blog

Whimsical Rose

Once you get there you will know exactly what I mean when I say that this girl is heartbreakingly beautiful in every sense of the word… she can find beauty in absolutely everything and her posts dictate personal strength, motivation, dreams and dilemma’s… all the while adding a fairytale twist to her every perspective 🙂 This is why I am addicted to her blog… it is her au naturale… raw art.

Alright, so enough with the sappiness… on with the show 😉 Look at the beautiful vintage card she sent me!!! Complete with a Barbie sticker to seal the envelope… loves it…

Chrystina shared some tips on how to “work it” in my new NARS Dolce Vita lipstick (will be posting pics verrrry soon), and quoted one of my absolute favorite scenes from Sex and the City (remember when Carrie is standing by the water fountain in the white dress with her hair all wild and curly…)

“Maybe some women aren’t meant to be tamed. Maybe they need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them”

-Carrie Bradshaw-

How true is this quote… I cannot even begin to explain… Some women can handle being in a relationship ruled by a man. Some can handle being suffocated and held down from achieving their dreams. Some can accept that no matter how devoted they are to their man, they will never see it returned. Some can put their lives on hold for another, only to find out in the end that their lives are already over.

I am proud to say that I am not, and never will be one of these women. I have found my wild match who, chases me actually, and keeps me reaching for everything I ever wanted to achieve. If one day he were to change, he would have been the one who had made me strong enough to not care, and just do it anyways :). Thank you babes – you have given me the priceless gift of self worth, confidence and “fuck the world, I’m gonna do whatever I want”

… like I said… priceless 😉

Alright, alright… seems today we are getting quite sidetracked huh?!?! Back to business once more…

So, as if a beautiful card filled with beautiful words and a NARS lipstick weren’t enough… darling Chrystina included this super funky/fresh red & black zebra print bangle!!! Groovy baby (that is my tribute to Austin Powers… I will shut up now…)!!! I LOVE THIS BRACELET! I can already feel it’s gonna be bringing out my wild (favorite) side… 😉

Thank you girl! Your package was so thoughtful and packed with a taste of your personality – tres cool… I consider this bracelet some kind of friendship bangle – def always think of you when I wear it.


For all of you who read this post and DIDN’T do as I TOLD YOU TO at the beginning (going IMMEDIATELY to Whimsical Rose)….

WHAT THE EFF ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?!?
***sorry… not meaning to be rude… I’m just dishing it out today***

Intricate Beauty

The GORGEOUS Agyness Deyn seems to be taking over the fashion world alongside conquering every look she comes across! This girls face is so striking it seems she can pull absolutely anything off!
Agyness played muse to Jean Paul Gaulthier for his launch of new perfume “MaDame”, which he mixed in her spirit. Young daring and beautiful.

We just can’t get enough!
