PARIS FULL OF GRACE: MISSING EVERY SECOND OF IT.


 While in Paris we'd work from 9am till 7pm-ish.

We got there, it was dark; we left, it was dark.

With our feet obviously killing us after spending a whole day standing, walking around hanging clothes back and forth (most of the times on heels or some sort of platform), we would get out and try to make something out of our evenings by having dinner in or out of the hotel, drinks, or anythingelse that would give us that extra Paris taste.

No matter what we did, and no matter how tired I felt, everytime I lied in bed I felt like I needed more hours to make that one day feel complete. And not exactly cause I was unsatisfied but mostly over-hyped.

But if I go through all these above I feel soooooooooooooooooooo so happy!

Not only was I once again surrounded by beauty 24/7 but I think I met my lost gay twin brother from NYC who's from Persia but who we asume was my latina sister in a past life. BARDIA BACCARDIA LET'S GO PARTIA IN MY CARDIA AMERICAN EXPRESS CARDIA IT'S NOT HARDIA GET SMARTIA. Sorry, inside work-joke.

BTW!!!! how SICK! do those "2" pants look on Suzanne on pic #9??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
she killed it that day.
Special thanks to her for helping make most of my pictures during the whole trip!

and how SICKER is my new denim Birkin bag-print a la trompe l'oeil??????!!! 
I still can't get over it. It's pretty much the only thing I bought together with that Hello Kitty japan-fever tee on pic #31. 

I'd love to write forever and share with you guys every single detail but as the beautiful Parisian bubble brakes, I need to go back to school tomorrow 9am sharp as a razor and I'm DEAD...although this morning in Brussels I slept till I felt like the world could see my collapsed face again.


For now I'll just let these babies talk for themselves.


Love y'all!

SHADES OF "G".



Printing right now what just became my new and first business card ever!

Right after my exams earlier...

as if sleeping for only four hours and waiting for a whole day to have a nerve-wracking presentation wasn't enough...

I rushed to my friend's house, Robbe Wieles, who's my hero at the moment! AND! the smart graphic designer responsible for these new shades of "G". Not only do I have a business card I'm dying to rub all over everyone's faces, but also a really good and PRO-looking portfolio and W E B S I T E !

I'm putting my all in this CV+Portfolio since I'll be hunting for an internship while in Paris! so please cross your fingers, toes, whatever twistable limb you might have so I end up somewhere amazing.

As for website, only need to make a couple of decisions about the site before we really make it public, but it's just there, waiting to be chosen! modified and published!

BOOM!


HI LOVERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

I've been so busy

and I think I'll continue to be for the next week but in the best of the ways! FROM PARIS!


 That's right, I haven't had time to spread the word around here but The Row invited us both (Suzanne and me) once again to be part of their staff during men's fashion week for their pre-fall 2012. So lots and lots and TONS! of new eye-candy for us not only cause we will have the chance to see their pre-fall /12 before any other french or international costumer, but also because those costumers are the ones coming in and out the showroom the whole day everyday, looking explendid...wearing the REAL DEALS!

This above is a picture of me, during the first official collection-check up at school earlier today for which I needed to have 2 toiles and 1 outfit already completely finished. Once again as much as I'd love to share what these three outfits looked like I think I rather not cause it's some serious IT material, but it's not IT yet.


Tomorrow early in the morning an appointment with BLEND magazine's online editor to give me all sorts of details about how the magazine's blog works cause *drums*  yes, I'll be one of their few online contributors from now on. So can't wait to get all the needed info to start rolling!

Afterwards! an unexpected meeting with a dear highschool finnish classmate!!!

Friday dinner with the lovely parents-in-law,
Saturday dinner with parents, sister and brother-in-law! + late drinks at Chloe & Acne partays.

Sunday, who knows, and the rest of the week will probably bring some more (besides real hard work at the showroom) I just don't know of yet! except for a possible appearance in a french film, as an extra in a parisian house-party full of beautiful youngsters. if you're reading this, and you'll be in Paris on january the 28th, then holler and JOIN US!

WAD THE HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


My baby on WAD magazine!

My boyfiend's fabulous alterego is the dog about to take over all of them stories real soon!!!!

J E A N  P O O D L E

I'm so happy for both, him and Christa van der Meer who's a close and dear school mate of mine. Next year she will go from being a school mate to CLASSmate as she makes a strong comeback from Stockholm, Sweden where she is now living as an exchange student.
Appearantly she's killing it and for what she last told me while being previously for a short amount of time back in Holland, she couldn't be happier of taking the decision to just leave and explore something completely new and out of her comfort zone.

There's nothing that can really beat the power of seeing your people's names on PRINT!
It just makes it all so real.

So glad to be surrounded by so many amazing talented people!

LOVE VS OWENS.


CAN U BELIEVE I FOUND THISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS?????????

And ok, now it looks as if I just find amazing things all the time after the post previous this one, but this happened already a while ago.

I was riding my bike on my way to school with my sis at the back (like the tick she is) and we were rapping some serious ASAP Rocky when I saw this bunch of leather all crumped up in the bushes.

Half wet, and half stinking like a homeless person, something at the back of my head told me this had some serious Rick Owens potential.

What do y'all think???????? is my subconcious totally sick and fucked up for letting me wear something that probably belonged to Courtney Love 15 years ago???

Or do you agree on the Owens appeal?


THE LOOK OF THE DAY.


I loved taking this picture so much today.

I stopped under the bridge were graffiti is legal near my house cause there was a nice IKEA chair, just like the one I have in my atelier, just thrown out on the street......in perfect shape.

As I picked it up, SHE passed by, with her ugly little cheery dog, a ciggie and lots of smiles for everybody........for no reason.

SO NICE!

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT COULDN'T GET WORSE.


CUSTOM MADE?

OR JUST MEANT TO BE?!

...that's another secret I'll never tell

you know you love me

XOXO

GHETTO GURL.

FLAMING RITUAL.


The beginning of a serie!

One of six self-portraits I will be making for my upcoming collection.
