Etheral. That is the first word I can think of to describe this photo spread. Or perhaps celestial; other-worldly; or even dare-I-say, neon? Really, it doesn't matter how you describe these photos, because they are just an amazingly beautiful blur. Enjoy

Looking hot for Fashion Indie

The vintage store that I work at, 1 of a Find, has been getting a lot of wonderful press recently. The Critical Shopper, a New York Times column, gave us a rave review this week and the lovely Samantha Lim, editor and chief for Fashion Indie, stopped by to model some of our best looks. The clothes look amazing on her and they beg to be shared. So share I will!

Who needs Chuck?

Leighton Meister is my favorite Gossip Girl. So it is nice to see her looking stunning in L'Officiel China. I love the luxurious color blocking (which is often done wrong, usually involving spandex). But Leighton looks great, adorned in vibrant silks, satins, and loaded up with baubles worthy of Cleopatra.

This is also a big improvement over some regrettable styling choices in Nylon. I'm just really confused by the reflective tape on her leggings. What's going on there?

Lindsay being Lindsay

Once I went to a showing of I Know Who Killed Me and I was literally the only person in the audience. True story. It was just me and a decapitated Linsday with a nonsensical plot. This story is both embarrassing and creepy. Anyway, I kind of love the bitch.

This Looks Really Fun

Remember in grade school when all the kids stood in a big circle and tossed up a big parachute and then ran underneath it? It felt like you were swimming in a psychedelic puddle. This photo is one of those kids all growed up.

Lady Gaga Art Pt. 2

Apparently it is a very hip thing nowadays to host contests for Lady Gaga art. As you might remember, I did a post on Dazed and Confused's Drawn This Way and now New York Magazine is getting in on the action. Unlike Dazed, this is an unauthorized contest, resulting in more offensive and therefore more interesting interpretations.

Bourgeois Lady Gaga
"The mother of American feminist identity, Louise Bourgeois, considered the spider the ultimate mother figure. In turn, Lady Gaga is considered the ultimate mother to her "little monsters" William Ivey Long, Costume Designer (Hairspray)

Baby Gaga
"The dress is composed of live, squirming infants... they're always in motion - and the neediness of the consuming public. They're clingy!"
Ariel Schrag, Author

Little Monster Sound Suit
Nick Cave, Musician
Cynthia Rowley, Designer

Gaga in Bloom
Janie Bryant, Costume Designer (Mad Men)

Infinity Gaga
"More than just a new look for Gaga, I think we just want to see more of Gaga.
How can we get more Gaga?"
Vanessa Davis, Illustrator

Lady Cleft Lip
"Lady Gaga obtains a cleft lip from a cosmetic surgeon to spread her message of universal tolerance. What if you could change the life of a Diva?"
Tim Hensley, Author and Graphic Artist

Gaga of the Ephesians
"... Spurning mobility for a portale mountaintop, a thousand headed Gaga creates and destroys herself...."
Molly Crabapple, Artist
