gene pool did good

When the gene pool got together on Edita Vilkeviciute they sure didn't leave anything to chance. They threw everything they had into this girl and the result? Well its good a one.

She reminds me just a fraction of Erin Wasson minus the undeniable edge (I think its the eyes?) and just a little of Claudia Schiffer circa a time when she was channelling Bridget Bardot (the pout perhaps?).

Either way she sure is something and if photos proove that she is using her down-time to hang with the likes of Karl then you just know she is onto a good thing.

a step off the runway

I have always been a big advocator of what goes on behind the scenes, on the streets, and off the runway. It's not that I don't appreciate the goings on, on the catwalk, because I do, I really do. But there is just some magic about the street side aspects of fashion week, isn't that where it all really comes to life? London has not failed to disappoint so far and so I sit and observe in awe, the floods of images that flash up on my screen daily.

We have our street chic Alexa Chung in what looks to be a Burberry trench and LBD, we have the ubiquitous Agnes Deyne in a monochrome vest dress, we have platforms a plenty (mostly of the Acne kind), we have the Model, street side with a menthol in one hand and a lookbook in the other, we have the fashionistas with no name clutching the one designer piece they own and are hoping will be their ticket into the after parties, we have the pretentious posers who we outwardly hate but secretly love and lastly we have ourselves a little Peaches Geldoff because what would be London Fashion Week if she or her lesser known sibling, weren't at the forefront of our minds?

if i were but a mere male

If I were but a mere male I would want to wear Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2010...and a bit of Burberrry too.
I would want that Acne plaid shirt. I would want hair like that and friends like those. I would wear my vintage Nikes, my brogues and my hiking boots with pride.
And I would think Macauly Culkin to be a pretty cool dude, but Bob Dylan even cooler.
