lanvin dudes pleats.

alber and lucas made me look real stupid. honestly 20 hours after damning pleats forever i was watching this video of the lanvin mens show in paris.

these dudes put tons of pleats in the fall 2010 collection. here are some examples of awesome looks with pleats. how wrong was I?

how awesome is this jacket?


another set of street style photos with emmy from urbandelicious.
she is wearing: vest and sweater express, shorts pac sun, leggings and clutch bcbg, boots bebe, rings forever 21 bcbg and vintage.

Here is what she said about this particular look: Snake and Skulls.

"my obsession with snakes and skulls continues, and somehow i inadvertently combined about three of my faves in this outfit. i'm still torn if i am in love with the matte nailpolish (i have owned it in the glossy version for a while and wear it year round)- to me it almost looks like i dipped my nails in wall paint, but i could possibly be doing it wrong. or possibly applying it as i am running out the door, which is why i end up looking like i used a 2 year old child as a manicurist. i decided to wear my favorite boots again, which stand up surprisingly well to the slush/snow/salt/puddles that populate the area as well as carry my new favorite lucite clutch. all that aside, busy weekend where i was successfully able to avoid more football, dance party until 5am, and still fit in a completely productive work schedule."

monday grab bag.

i've been looking for sweet vintage suits. the biggest buzzkill is when you try a jacket on... it fits great. but then you look at the pants. pleats and cuffs. as of right now i cannot see myself going back to ever wearing pleats. they just dont make sense. however these pleats are totally awesome. this photo is part of a three picture series from tommy ton of jak and jil check out the set here.

hot chip's new album one life stand gets released in a couple weeks. but i couldnt wait. this track is amazing.
hot chip - we have love.

some more totally awesome street style with emmy from urbandelicious.
-skull shirt h&m, cardigan banana republic, sweatshirt gap, leggings bcbg, shorts pac sun, boots sam edelman, purse cynthia rowley-

here is what she says about this look:
my favorite weekend outfit on yet another typical cold, gray january day. i have what appears to be an extreme sensitivity to cold, and yet if i get too hot you can pretty much guarantee you will hear me complain as well, so when i have a day off work i tend to throw on as many tops that will keep me warm and deconstruct from there. i guess it doesn't help that my leggings are ventilated and only serve the purpose of enhancing my outfit rather than keeping me warm. piles of shirts, piles of rings, a big cozy hat, my favorite shoes, and a purse big enough to fit anything i may accumulate during the day makes for the best weekend wardrobe.

dries fall 2010.

B&N's favorite street style model. Emmy is a totally awesome local chick that i've had the pleasure of kicking it with. we met up in broad ripple and took some photos of her totally sweet outfit. check out her sick blog at urbandelicious. the first of many sets of emmy to come. stay tuned.

emmy is wearing: scarf alexander mcqueen, shirt and jacket express, jeans arden b, boots bebe, jewelry masha archer, forever 21, and vintage, clutch bcbg-
first time posting a clear image of myself, i'd like to apologize to the B&N nation. i'm wearing: hardwood classic by the franchise pacers hat, h&m circle scarf, burberry tie, brooks brothers shirt, zegna blazer and i made my red belt.

Here is what Emmy says about this look:
beginning the new year with my all time favorite scarf again, showing that it can be just as versatile for the winter as it is during the summer (whatever it takes to convince myself that it was a "must have" purchase). also had fun editing my usually huge luggage sized purses down to the bare essentials to fit in my lucite bcbg clutch. with all my belongings on display, i have to keep it minimalistic.

mcqueen fall 2010.

alexander mcqueen from milan. if i had to describe these looks in three words... armadillos, ninjas, and suits.

beard of the week: Andrew Wyatt

peep his beard in this group photo of Miike Snow. he rox the vox. the swedish producers bloodshy and avant worry about everything else.

really feeling this track- Miike Snow - Silvia. i do not understand the song or video, but the overall sound is totally awesome.

if you need more face/beard time with Andrew check out the ever popular Miike Snow video Animal.
