I don't care what my teachers say, I'm gonna be a supermodel, and my hair will shine like the sea

It has been ages since I've updated this, my life has gotten so crazy and I've been computer-less. But, for the next two weeks I've got a lot of free time and a laptop so I thought I'd try to squeeze in a few posts. This will be the last post of 2014, and so I thought I'd share one of my favourite editorials from the past year, which incidentally came out just this month. But hey, Nicki Minaj just released her album this month and I think that it is one of the best albums of the year so maybe there's something to be said about year end releases, you know?

If you're a Jeremy Scott fan or just a fan of Moschino, you know that the Fall 2014 line was all about Barbie. I absolutely loved it because I absolutely love Barbie. Doesn't everybody? She's basically the most popular doll of all time. She's been around forever, and has been a source of fashion inspiration for lots of people. So, when I saw this particular editorial for French Vogue - I lost my mind. It's just so good!!!

"Panoplies" for French Vogue Decemer 2014

Panoplies is the french word for outfits. Sure, the outfits are AMAZING, but what really gets me about these "dolls" are the accessories. The beautiful Magdalena Frackowiak and Elisabeth Erm pose as Barbies, still in the box, for an array of high fashion brands.

The newest OPI collection (for September) is Peanuts (Charles Schulz) inspired! More specifically, inspired by the classic Halloween cartoon; It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! I am definitely going to get my hands on Good Grief and probably one of the sparkles, most likely To Beagle or Not to Beagle.

I'm currently on a friends' computer and I'm going to attempt to publish a quick post, because it's been a really long time.

Last time I was home, I received a copy of Fashion magazine that had been waiting for me - the September issue with Lana Del Rey on the cover. My mom had saved a copy for me (two, actually) because quite honestly I am devoutly obsessed with Lana. There was a lot of good stuff in that magazine. Something that caught my eye, was a clutch by designer Anya Hindmarch.

Pearl necklace by Cezanne, $28.00, available at my work, Hudson's Bay :)

Anya Hindmarch is a British handbag/accessories designer. I've only just discovered her, but after visiting her website I instantly fell in love. I especially love the AW 2014 collection, "Counter Culture". That's where the above bag is from. It's a rectangular clutch with a print of a vintage box of Corn Flakes! I love this so much. There are others, too; Coco Pops, and Frosties (Frosted Flakes). This entire collection, and the fashion show, had grocery store vibes. JUST like Chanel AW 2014, which was set in a faux grocery store and featured models carrying very ornate shopping baskets. For Anya's show, some of the models pushed regular shopping carts. I always love when food finds its way into fashion, so I obviously love both aforementioned shows. The magazine I saw it in, Fashion (originated out of Toronto) did their own shoot inspired by the Chanel show, in a grocery store in downtown Toronto. It was quite good, and very colourful.

There's something very pop-art-esque about incorporating brands into fashion and art. Like how Andy loved to draw and paint things like Campbell's soup cans or Brillo boxes. Making a bag out of old cereal boxes seems, sort of simple, but I think its fantastic in its own right.

And now, here are my favourite pics from the Anya Hindmarch AW2014 show:

I love this foil candy wrapper purse so much!
