so I was thinking...i haven't changed my look in a while and i think im ready to. most of last year i had blunt bangs which i loved, but they were hard to maintain. i was inspired by the beautiful camilla belle. i think that i might bring them back, after all, i can always grow them back out. just took so damn long. but now that i'm without them i feel like my face is missing something...

on a separate note, i want to discuss new mercedes benz fashion week which ended last thursday.  i wasn't able to watch all of the shows live, but hopefully as i go over all the shows i'll be able to give my reviews on here, though they may be a little delayed.

marc jacobs: usually i admire his designs for their fantastical, playful qualities and the story lines behind his shows, but i was disappointed to say the least with what i saw come down the runway for his fall 2010 collection. drab and lifeless are the two best adjectives i can find to describe this collection.  all pieces were very practical and office-conscious, possibly a reflection of the economic times and the demand for wearable pieces.  i was particularly not a fan of the mid-calf hemlines that seemed to dominate.  he threw in the occasional sequins and fur trim, though even though pieces were boring in shape, construction, and silhouette. overall it was boring, safe, and aging. why marc, why?

you can see the collection for yourself here:
