Okay, so if you read my blog, you know I love Harold Lloyd, so seeing Onew who I adorrrrrre dressed in ways that remind me of him is mind-blowingly awesome. And damn if Shinee isn’t making me like florals… I want to steal half of their clothes (and not wear them all at the same time).

Oh, I’m here for this.
Let’s talk about Emilio Sosa, one of the finalists of Project Runway All Stars Season 2. I’m shocked I haven’t seen any Tumblrs talk about his finale collection, which was both political and shown exclusively on WoC. The theme channeled Aunt Jemima and Rosie the Riveter, and was named “Urban Plantation.”
Throughout the season, he produced some beautiful, interesting garments. I loved watching him progress and he continued to impress me (and more importantly, the judges). In his finale collection, Emilio showed us one of the most political collections to date for Project Runway. During the critique he says, “I wanted to show the entire collection on women of color because that was the first vision of beauty that I saw in my eyes.” So beautiful.
I just wanted to give him some credit where it was due, because I loved it and wanted you to see it.
I don’t watch Project Runway, but this is interesting.
I may be wrong, but I don’t consider Aunt Jemima to be an empowering character. I have, however, always found it fascinating how these headties seem to crop up everywhere… in a larger sense in African headwraps like gele, then in Haiti where they can look more like bows, to African American women in the past and present…
So I really want to get a faux fur scarf
Does anybody know where I can get one that looks nice? I saw someone on Instagram with a dark blue fur thingy, but I’m pretty sure it was real… and I definitely don’t want real fur.

This one’s pre-fall, but I’ll be doing the current fashion week stuff too :D
I want this whole outfit. Especially the shoes.
