oh taylor...

It's not secret that I dig Taylor Tomasi A LOT. These photographs of her in Paris for the Spring 2010 runway shows have been sitting on my desktop for awhile now, and as much as I'd love to keep them to myself, it's Christmas so I'm sharing. Her style makes me want to take risks with my wardrobe which, in the past, has been something I've found particularly difficult to do being that I'm not a huge fan of change. Nevertheless Taylor's shorts are speaking to my soul, and every other part of my being for that matter...I want.

Wouldn't that be a fun DIY project? Where's my wallet? I need a bedazzler ASAP! [stockholmstreetstyle]

Buzzfeed gathered the best protest signs of 2009, and they're pretty awesome. I can't believe you actually see some of these at gatherings that are meant to be somewhat serious. My mind is too busy laughing to formulate a thought for me to write, so all I have to say is: HAAAAAAAAAAAA! [thedonutproject]

you obviously have too much money.

I'm cheap. I'm cheap, but I'll spend retarded amounts of money on the things I love...like shoes...or bags...or shoes. Anyway. I've never been a fan of frivolous spending; if I do end up spending a lot of money on something it's because I know it will gain value over time or because it's impeccably made. When I saw this 24k gold pencil created by Korean Daisung Kim, I wanted to puke in my mouth a bit. Not only is the pencil carefully covered with 24k gold shavings, but it's so astronomically priced, thinking about it makes my eye twitch. People who purchase things like this, I have no words for...[designboom]

Someone obviously has too much time on their hands...

It gives me a headache to think about Pre-Fall collections simply because I just got done digesting the Spring 2010 shows and presentations. Time moves very quickly, and designers waste no time being a million years ahead of us all, but good LORD Fall 2010 already?! Burberry Prorsum's Pre-Fall collection has been the first to catch my eye, probably because in the past I've lusted after many of their products (mostly the shoes). Inspired by the military, the collection is full of cinched wastes, aviator jackets, and strong shoulders. Although this is all beautiful, I'm ready for a closeup of those shoes - because I'm probably going to be lusting after those for at least a year...[wwd]

patricia fields x the keith haring foundation.

Costume designer/super stylist/boutique owner Patricia Fields has teamed up with The Keith Haring Foundation to present a collaborative collection of clothing and accessories using the artists iconic images. The collection of scarves, clutches, and a few dresses is currently on pre-sale at the Patricia Fields online boutique. Keith Haring passed away from AIDS and other complications in 1990, but I've seen his artwork live on not only in museums (that's obvious), but also in fashion and pop culture. I mean seriously, you're pretty much a big deal when Jeremy Scott prints your work on one of his motorcycle jacket and Rihanna looks amazing in it. Legend. [patriciafields]

givenchy and some other stuff.

For their upcoming issue Ten Magazine decided to drape Kinga Rajzak in all things couture. Valentino, Chanel, Dior, Balenciaga, and of course Givenchy. Since Givenchy is by far my favorite design house, and Riccardo Tisci can do no wrong in my eyes, as soon as I saw this I knew I had to post it. [fashiongonerogue]

108g gives it's consumers the power to colorize their wide range of garments to fit their mood and lifestyle, thus giving said consumer the ability to customize each order in any way they chose. You can select products ranging from flannel jackets, cashmere scarves, bamboo fiber tees, and silk dress, then choose from over 100 distinctive colors for your purchase to be hand painted by 108g's in house artist. It's like doing arts & crafts without actually putting in work. Of course 108g is all the way in Paris right along with Colette, but pretty soon they'll be opening an online shop. Can't wait for that! [180g]
