Do you remember that first instant when you realized that you were starting to grow up? I think it first hit me playing with my little sister in the 5th grade. It was like Cinderella’s carriage turning into the pumpkin. As a wizard in the woods my wand was simply a stick and my ally, the sorceress commanding the spirits and flying away on her broomstick, was just my kid sister on her bike with a cape. The clock had struck midnight and the magic was gone. It comes back every now and then, but unfortunately the clock seems to strike midnight earlier and earlier.

It amazes me, the transition from New York fashion week to Europe. The trends of wearable fashion from New York are thrown to the wayside in favor of abstract art in Europe. Striking color, pattern, geometric shapes, and architectural design mark a new form of fashion on the runways of Paris and Milan. Clicking my way through the shows in New York had my brain racking for ways in which my wallet could meet my fantasies to obtain a certain turban or short, but with the Europe runways my calculations were replaced more with contemplation. I wanted less to steal the clothes for myself than to run and frame them on my wall. While one struck me more for reflection, I am not sure that this makes it better. I like to wear my clothes and inspiration comes from both - the body and the frame, so I guess this was just a ramble, but if anyone else is reading... what would you say wearability or avant garde?

Good song. This video is lovely and I love the way durbansweatheart from A Mermaid's Fashion Notebook described it, "it strays away from the chaos [of fashion week] and goes more into the beauty of it". I find new perspectives on Fashion Week fascinating, for there is so much more there than just the models and a runway.

Peter Pan

I am having trouble growing up, and I love how this lady paired a perfectly grown up dress with a crew cuts sweater.
