As I’m still waiting for my pretty new laptop to arrive, the only upside to my ancient desktop is the multiple thousands of tunes I havn’t listened to in ages. Like this one for example…
I dj/copromote a night called Trainwreck on Fridays in Pod. Here is the website if you wanna peep. I play mostly soul music in the Chocolate Bar, and Orlando, my dj partner in crime plays mostly hiphop. Sometimes we swap tho. Tonight I really wanna play…..
and then this…
and also i’l defo be playing this…
and here is a remix i heard a while ago that i quite like
Happy Friday. Hope to see some of you there.
I recently got all my hair chopped off for a hair competition thing. *SOB* I cannot wait for it to grow back so i can have my hair like this…..

I am also loving Galliano’s military/equestrian/French thing he’s got going on for Autumn. Delightfully whimsical and fierce at the same time. Nom.
This is the image that made me want hair like this. Altho maybe not so much the scissorhands. I also like how Gaga’s barnet is a hint of grey. Think I’m gonna hide from hairdressers for the next few months.
I LOVE Karl Lagerfeld. I have worshipped him for a long, long time – I see him as a man capable of absolutely everything. So, I am particularly disappointed with his latest outing at Chanel. I’m not sure if this is a sartorial in-joke or something, but the Yeti look is having a major moment, not just chez Chanel….but man, he really took it to the extreme……
Unfortunately, mixing shaggy fur with heavy bouclé does not leave the most elegant of silhouette. Even with my favourite look, I don’t quite know whether I actually like it, or whether I was just so glad that it was better than the rest. Well, no, I’m pretty sure I like it. But I definitely don’t love it, and by Chanel standards, I only barely like it.
Also, and this might just be me, but my main gripe with this colletion is the bang of narcissism off it. I love KL. I love his look. I love that he has managed to mix it into the Chanel aesthetic very successfully for many seasons to create wonderous fashion. But this season he seems to have hit the wall. What he showed instead was a parody of his persona, with a twist of Napoleonic styling…At best this collection seems unconsidered or just plain taking the piss. At worst….well, I dont think I can bring myself to say it. I’m sorry Karl. I love you but I’m very, very disappointed.

i’v been useless over the past couple of weeks, between trips to NYC, broken laptops, crazy deadlines & a general air of all-over-the-place-ness. i’m not excusing it, just saying…….
anyway, i am in the middle of browsing through the fall 2010 collecitons and a number of issues are arising already. some of these things i agree with, some i do not.
1) the yeti coat
2) an over use of animal print
3) scarlet fever
4) navy & black
5) the midriff returns
6) summer colours for winter
7) the pantsuit kicks back
8 ) 70′s trouser shapes
and i’m only on the letter B!!!! realistically it will probably be a week before i get through them all, and a while more before i have an opion to share. I’l leave you for the moment with a look that i like from what i have seen, even if it is very Gucci from the Tom Ford era…actually, that’s probably why i like it…
