Style Icon Thursday- Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Hey there. This is Brian, and I am guest blogging for Mallory's style icon Thursday. I volunteered to do this post, and hopefully I will do a few more in the future.
I decided to do Joseph Gordon-Levitt for my first one because he is a smooth looking fella, and also because he was in Angels in the Outfield, which is an all time favorite movies of mine. Mallory suggests I have a man-crush on him. Don't believe her. His popularity has exploded since he starred in 500 Days of Summer with one of Mallory's favorite people, Zooey Deschanel. His style sense is radical, and he seems to be dressed up most of the time. If I ever get around to buying a suit, I may base the style of it from something he has worn. 
Good sweater with the tie and dress shirt under. 
This is something I do often when dressing up.

One of our favorite movies, 500 Days of Summer.

I'm not one for long jackets, but this one is legit.

I don't know why he's smoking here. Grossology.

I 100% dig this jacket.

I like the basic striped shirt under the suit jacket.

This suit has a vintage style to it.

I don't think he can grow a full beard.

In Inception, he wore a suit all the time. The slicked back, greasy
hair is not cool though.

I see angels.

That's it for my first guest post.
Enjoy it.


Spring 2011- 3.1 Phillip Lim

Here I go with another spring show!  The things I enjoy about this collection are the unexpected and somewhat girly details, the detached collar, the cutouts (super big for spring!), and the shoes are fantastic.

3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2011 ready to wear:

I love these pants! Also love the dress below so much!

Back to my experimental design presentation!
Yours truly, Mallory


Where did fall go?

Here in greater Cincinnati it was in the upper 70s Saturday.  Today it was about 55 degrees all day.
I like fall, but I don't like this sudden jump to early winter.
I would have been perfectly happy wearing a coat on campus.
I wore a really cute outfit today including a vintage dress with a strawberry print and rick rack trim.
I was just so cold and bummed when I got home that i took off my oxfords and curled up on the couch for a nap.  Shame on me for not photographing it.

Here are some highlights from last fall:

making s'mores with my cousins!

Chicago with Brian, Lauren, and TJ!

nephew at the pumpkin farm!


Lovely costumes for all! Lauren and Tj were Jack and Jill (I made her jumper and bow), and I did Brian's zombie makeup.

I'm hoping it gets back to the mid 60s here soon for pumpkin hunting, more productive crafting (like yesterday!), making more s'mores, and getting in a few final bike rides.
I'm still not sure what Brian and I are going to dress up as this year.


MPMF and Renaissance Festival

Friday Brian and I decided on a whim to go see O'Brother play at the Midpoint Music Festival downtown on Fountain Square.  Our friends Michael and Austin showed up after I took these pictures.
O'Brother's music rules, but I don't necessarily love the singer's voice.

Genius of Water

On Saturday we got Caribou Coffee.
I think I'm liking them better than Starbucks.  I hope that's not sacrilege.
I especially love their cups.

Then as a family we went to the Ohio Renaissance Festival.
It's extremely campy but still pretty great.

Dad testing his strength

 Sisters in stocks.

Sarah took and edited these last 4.
I'm sure she has more she hasn't shared with the fb world yet.



On Saturday night at the last minute we decided to go back to mpmf and see Colour Revolt.
They were one of the best live bands I've seen.
Brian and Michael kept saying that both of the bands sounded dirty in the best way possible.
The rest of the bands we happened on were pretty bad, and when we went to see Pomegranates the venue was 21+.
I turn 21 in 6 weeks and 1 day, and Michael is a year younger than me.
Oh well!


Art Journaling

So, art journaling is one of those things that I always just assumed I wouldn't have time for.

I'm more of a list kinda girl.  I also have quite a few incredibly large inspiration albums in my iphoto.
I have ones for vintage garments, handmade accessories, interior, childrens wear, menswear, handmade clothing, shoes, pretty art, and lingerie.

So, today during our first class of my Experimental Design course our teacher has requested we start an art/inspiration journal.  I'm really excited because someone is making it mandatory I do somthing I've wanted to for a long time.  I'm really having a hard time with the thought of chopping up my Nylon and Vogue magazines.

Here are some journals I admire:

(I like the vintage pattern cutout)

I am now going to take a nap because I have another 2 hours before my next class!
