I always love the shoes at Marni. here's what consuelo castiglioni brings us for fall 2009, my favorite shoes for the season. oh and the tights, I really like these tights. I love tights though, I will take tights with shorts or a skirt any day over jeans.

this is based on the abstract style of Richard Diebenkorn. the canvas had a layer of modeling paste and texture was added by gesso with a pallet knife. this painting is the abstract view from a south-facing window that over looks the highways.acrylic 12x16
I don't usually work with acrylics. not bad paints, I just prefer oils.

now that it is all over, here are my top 3 shows for Fall/Winter 2009-10
Commes de Garcons by Rei Kawakubo
I'm not a pink girl, but I especially loved the kiss scarves worn on the girl's faces. the thought of wrapping up in jackets, coats, and even blankets for winter really appeals to me. besides, I always love CDG.
Miu Miu by Miuccia Prada
I loved both Prada and Miu Miu this season. At Miu Miu, the big comfy coats paired with the bikini style bras looked nontraditional, and defeated the purpose of the wool coat, but lovely none the less. with the exception of the furry pair, I loved loved the shoes, especially the ones that matched the beaded tights.
Missoni by Angela Missoni
oh, Missoni, one day I WILL be able to afford you and all of your classic-patterned glory. really, with this collection you had me at the scarves. again, the bundling up in coats, sweaters, and scarves is how I want to look in the winter. if it ever gets cold here, which it has been lately!
what can I say, I have a type. but I don't know what to say about the light pink, because I don't wear it or like. if I find anything on the cheap that looks like any of this maybe with grey instead, consider it mine. the collections either showed bundled up, see through top, or hey, even both. I personally love all the excess layers, especially blankets and scarves.
side note- I know this has been so dead, but my camera is on the fritz. good news is I will have more lovely art up starting TOMORROW! come back and che che check it out, man.
