Fashematics: a map of designers' inspirations.

I'm going to be the first one to say (and don't laugh guys, because I'm not even lying): Fashion and Math excite me.
Figuring out equations can be brutal. But to me, it's fairly easy! (not that I don't struggle)
All it really takes is execution.
You can even probably compare the two. Given x + y, x being as absurd as a crab, all you need to do to solve is execute it. Designers sketch so many different styles, but they don't matter on paper until they make it concrete, physical, pieces.
Then, you have a wearer. She can have the finest brand names, but what if it just isn't cohesive? Home girl better execute!

But anyways, is there really even a need for an explanation of why I love this site?
I just compared my LOVE for math to fashion.
Johnathan of Fashematics makes it simple for you.

Hope you had a great weekend, guys!

The semi-transparent layers kind of reminds me of Geraldine George's work, which I love.
The first one being my current twitter background:


What an innovative concept for an editorial!

I dig her style!
She really is growing to be one of my favourites.


Who want's to shell out 5 bills on this headband for me? :)

I got love for the Piv

The choice in clothing is definitely mysterious. But THIS is why I respect the Piv so much. Breaking boundaries, breaking stereotypes, and a good hearted person.
Love and peace!

- Lol

We can always atleast try to be happy.

This picture is so inspiring.

Kids in Couture by Ryan McGinley

Kids in couture, the title is pretty self explanatory.
I can't even imagine what elementary school me would do in these clothes!
Have you ever played dress up?
When I was younger, I loved playing with Barbies.
Dressing them up, putting the shoes on their permanent high-heels only shoes, and then plotting high society affairs for them.
Growing me and my cousins would always play dress up wearing my best clothes, doing out hair, and making up fake names and accents.
When I grew a little bit older, I made my little cousin my doll.
I had a theory that the toys you played when you were younger reflected the future for you. Other than the obvious future doctor playing with a plastic stethoscope, I had these precious memories that helped me LOVE fashion.

The kids in this ed are so lucky, so blessed, and it looks like they're having a lot of fun.
I wish, when I design clothes, that the people wearing them feel just as or look just as happy as these kids.
Sometimes a garment is more than a a garment. Each piece with their own personalities that match with people of the same style.

Killer Loubies

These are ferosh.
The "classic" 50's red soles juxtapose the studded glam of the bad ass punk rocker in the 70's.

Reptile Textiles

Source: Garments (Jak and Jil), Shoes (Fashiontoast)

Seems like reptiles are taking over the (fashion) world.
Animal prints have long since been a trend, but style documenters, Rumi Neely and Jak & Jil have taken it a step further by bringing back the croc skin and scaly textures.

Christopher Kane's collaboration with Topshop has introduced a highly coveted minidress featuring one of these reptile creatures.

And Alexander Wang, never one to be behind, has his Lara combat boot.

If you're feeling this trend, these two items are for sure some fashion staples you'd like to collect.

As for me, I'm broke. & I'm still in love with little cheetah print things.
I'm slowly building my faux snake skin collection, though! :)

All my love <3

I could not have picked the more perfect color, or shape to designate on this shoe.
They definitely have a personality of their own!

We are (b)Lazers

There is something about cuffing your blazer that fascinates me. This might explain why I am so particularly obsessed with the lining of a blazer.
Up until recently, the blazer is seen as "business wear". Something so conservative as a blazer paired without the other half of the suit, can ultimately show such a playful approach to fashion.
Q: Do you ever stop and think, "Why would a businessman roll his sleeves up?" or "What's under that stern exterior?"
A: To show your polka dot lining of course!

I would love to buy a nice wooly blazer, or reconstruct one to fit me well. Boyfriend blazers are seemingly difficult to find without having to spend more than $150 on. When I do find one, however, I'm for sure sewing a floral or heart patter in the lining!

Feelin' lit, feelin' light.

With fashion blogs, it's easy to get carried away.
For example, in my many attempts of starting one, I've ended up making every fashion blog into a "blog blog", writing the personal, little and irrelevant details of my everyday life.
Why? Because fashion is my life. It's become part of my lifestyle and everything I do.

Anyways, I'm just going to keep this blog relevant to the fashion industry because lately I have been forcing myself to plan my LIFE basically, what with course changes ending soon and my high school life moving past myself in a surreal blur. That being said, I've decided to atleast try to chase my dreams of making a living within the fashion industry. Hopefully this blog will help me realize what my priorities are.
I'll try to update as often as I can! I mean, I enjoy it so I will obviously ;)

Right now I'm just tweaking and perfecting what seems to be the "layout uniform" for all fashoin boggers, "minima default" lol! A header will be up soon keep your shirts/jumpers/panties/ on.

All my love <3
