Female seeking clever, witty, and conceptual writers. You dont have to be eco- friendly or politically correct and the internet works just fine. I'm not going to lie, my Thursday nights have become a complete bust! I have resorted to Clash Of The Choirs with the likes of Michael Bolton (I didnt know you could make a reality show about that shit) NBC, CBS, hell FOX writers where have you gone? I know its not you, is it me?! I like ginger in my tea and by that I mean, Conan, my love, where are you with your illustrious bouncey hair and pale irish skin??? As a result of this strike people like me are writing!

Honestly, I don't think anything gets me more excited then fine men, er, menswear. Tailoring, color, and a clear direction are at the heart of the creation of a collection. Luckily for us, Brand Pimps and Media Whores are presenting the second installment of the Capsule Show in New York in January. This is an industry tradeshow that every budding company as well as established lifestyle brand will have thier eye on. BPMD has taken the top premium independent menswear designers and will be setting up shop at the Angel Orensanz Foundation Center. The neo-gothic space will serve as the landscape for the most progressive movers in the menswear market. The unique thing about this show is that up and coming designers will be in the building alongside some of the best in the world. Not only is this a fresh approach but it is being brought to you by a group of people that are focused on bringing streetwear to the next level. By the way, the list of designers are the damn truth when it comes to influential design. The last show was great and we are looking forward to the next phase. Brace yourself. There are some newcomers to the room this time around and we're proud to see that Bijules NYC will be in the building.
January 22-23, thats a Tuesday and a Wednesday from 10-7pm.
Angel Orensanz Ctr. located at 172 Norfolk Street in the Lower East Side

It has just been announced that Tim Burton will produce and direct an adaptation of the Disney classic, Alice in Wonderland. The film is slated to start filming in early 2008 and will combine live action and animation to create a 3D motion picture. Burton is promising to stay true to the Lewis Carrol story. "The stories are like drugs for children, you know?" Burton said. "It's like, 'Whoa, man.' The imagery, they've never quite nailed making it compelling as a full story. So I think it's an interesting challenge to direct." Alice in Wonderland is a fantasical journey that takes the viewer on adventures through a dream. We are really excited to see what Burton turns out.

NEW ALEX PARDEE
He just unveiled 30 new works in Portland, Oregon on December 6th. The same day as my girl, Sarah's birthday. I've got alot of those this month. Anyhow check out his blog for latest information.
Karl Lagerfeld citing Amy Winehouse as his inspiration for his latest collection. Really? The toothless junkie with the obnoxious beehive? Even Victoria Beckham has cited Winehouse as an icon as of late. How can you give icon status to someone who has been around for less than a year or so? Not too chic, however, the adorned beehives that went down the runway were exquisite. I just don't see them having much life after the catwalk. All in all the Pre-Fall 08 collection fused together beautiful fabrics, giant jewels, layers of texture, and signature English flare. Chanel did turn out some great looks and here are a couple of highlights. Check out more of the collection and a review from Sara Mower at Style.com
Dear Urban Outfitters:
As much as you are tired of seeing me, the feeling is mutual and unfortunately I will be back tomorrow because the coat I bought as a christmas gift for my sister is missing a button and itchy. Also, I'd like to thank the staff member at the west philly store for rumaging through my purse and treating me like a common criminal, thanks betch love you too. Lastly the models on the website need to eat 1 to 7 cheeseburgers. that is all. thank you. I also do batmitzfahs and sweet sixteens.
