Links Out are one day late, and I can’t believe how busy I’ve been this past week. Unfortunately the next 2 – 3 weeks don’t look that much better. With a bit of luck I’ll be able to squeeze in an outfit post and I have a new feature coming up called ‘Snapshot Scrapbook.’ I’ll let you imagine what that will include. 🙂
Katy Perry’s California Gurls is one of my favourite music videos. Even if you aren’t a fan of the song, you have to admit that the aesthetics are pretty amazing. Take a look at this concept art for the video. Gorgeous!!
While I’m on the topic of Katy Perry, she recorded a spoof of ‘Hot n’ Cold’ with Elmo for Sesame Street. Unfortunately parents didn’t like the cut of her dress and the clip was cut from the show. You can watch the video here.
Issac Likes on the darker side of male modelling. Good read.
Why are so many things broken? Seth Godin talks about things that are poorly designed, broken on purpose and why they are that way. Seth Godin on things that are ‘broken on purpose‘:
Jimmy Choo shoes are not good shoes, they’re not good at being shoes. They’re good at something else. So don’t complain if they hurt your feet. They’re broken on purpose.
This chick has seriously amazing style, and she lives in my city! Go and visit Marcella of Fashion Distraction.
This shoe is beautiful. The things that are coming out of Sweden keep blowing me away.
Not That Kind of Girl on being The Kind Of Girl Who Throws the Neg.
I’m going to go ahead and veto The Neg for any future seduction attempts. While it’s devilishly effective on women, I’m not convinced the approach translates well across gender lines.
I had an article published on Social Media NZ titled ‘Why Fashion Can’t Afford to Ignore Social Media.’ I might re-publish it here although it would be a bit outside the usual scope of this blog. If you’re interested please check it out and leave me a comment.
Gala Darling responds to the question, ‘How important is the name of your blog?‘ Timely, too! I’ve been having thoughts about changing the name of this blog to something fashion-related, but at the same time I like that this blog is sort of my ‘home base’ because of its name. What do you think? Answer this question in the comments section!
Until next week!
