This Way Is Up

I am so immersed in this online world that my inspirations flit through my head in a second whenever I see something. For example this dress constructed from vintage fabric reminds me of Harlequin, Miu Miu, Viktor and Rolf, and most notably Eley Kishimoto's Fall 2008 collection. I followed up the thoughts by revisiting those collections and now have plenty of ideas on how to wear this dress into the winter.eley, kishimoto, runway, harlequin, fall, 2008, dress, circus, fashion, styleeley, kishimoto, runway, harlequin, fall, 2008, dress, circus, fashion, style
The picture set ups were fairly equally inspired by this image, this image (seen at Picked Picks) and the massive hill I posed on itself. It's funny the images look flat, but I was lying on an extremely steep hill and I nearly rolled down it multiple times.harlequin, vintage, reconstructed, fashion, style, dress, circus, runway, inspired, photoshoot, photo shoot, concrete, parking, lot, cement, arrow, style, theclotheshorse, the, clothes, horse, daily, outfit, personal, blogharlequin, vintage, reconstructed, fashion, style, dress, circus, runway, inspired, photoshoot, photo shoot, concrete, parking, lot, cement, arrow, style, theclotheshorse, the, clothes, horse, daily, outfit, personal, blogharlequin, vintage, reconstructed, fashion, style, dress, circus, runway, inspired, photoshoot, photo shoot, concrete, parking, lot, cement, arrow, style, theclotheshorse, the, clothes, horse, daily, outfit, personal, blogharlequin, vintage, reconstructed, fashion, style, dress, circus, runway, inspired, photoshoot, photo shoot, concrete, parking, lot, cement, arrow, style, theclotheshorse, the, clothes, horse, daily, outfit, personal, blog

P.S. Yes, this is the third day in a row I have worn in these shoes. ^_^

Wow, it looks so much like it. I like the print. :]

bestie said...

oh, it reminds me of your other gorgeous harlequin dress.. the one that forever haunts my dreams..

..anyway. i'm glad you didn't end up rolling over the place!(;

AsianCajuns said...

I totally know what you mean by being totally immersed in the fashion internet world.

I love your dress - even better than the runway versions. And those photos are soooo fun!

Nadine said...

Now I think I might need such a beautiful dress, too.

Adiel said...

I would love to score a dress like this!
...and those shoes are great! Wear them as much as you want!

p.s. I finished altering that dress. I'm going to wear it today and post pictures some time in the next few days.

Sales Rack Raider said...

How I love that dress! With the shoes being so cute, I'd wear them 3 days in a row, too.

Very cool setting for your photoshoot as well. You must have a really good, steady tripod--I could sort of tell on the second picture (by the way the arrow is oriented) that you're on a slope, but if you haven't mentioned it, I wouldn't have paid attention.

Ca said...

Haha, if you love the shoes then keep wearing them! Oooh, I want a shirt with Harlequin patterns, but where to look?!

Sassy said...

You look great in harlequins and I love your pix!

Amelia said...

I love that dress! It really does look exactly like the ones in those pics. Lucky.

Inside the Cabinet of Wonder said...

i love these pictures!!

cupcakes and cashmere said...

that's so funny that it's nearly impossible to tell that you're on a hill. we all appreciate your dedication, these pictures are awesome!

pretty face said...

From afar, the dress looked like it was weaved, braided you know... but it's still very beautiful. And I love the way you've connected the images.

Dapper Kid said...

Love the geometric print and the photographs are wonderful!

Oriane said...

The three photos on the floor are great ! I like your style.

amie said...

i love how you style the photos!
do you take them yourself or does someone take them of you?

Mimi said...

The look reminds me a bit to circus but I really like it.I remember the Miu Miu bags in this patchwork style..I loved them.
Your dress is very cute.You picked a very good location for the pics :)

lisa said...

Pretty! Love the harlequin pattern and all the green hues.

Meggy_FFW said...

These are some of my favorite "outfit of the day" pictures I've seen of yours -- I think it's the coloring and the background -- fantastic! I can almost feel the warm cement. & that dress is gorgeous.

annabananna said...

Alya said...

Oooh! Really cute dress! It reminds me of the ones u mentioned as well..

miss vintage love said...

Im obsessed with white tights!

StrikeMatch said...

Great photos (as always).. Your photo shoots are better than some editorials I've seen! The harlequin/diamond print is really pretty.

enc said...

I can't believe the only thing I thought about was "I hope she doesn't get run over!"

What a great dress.

thetinylittlegirl said...

They never look contrived, just so natural but interesting at the same time.

Caro said...

lovely bracelets.. and the pictures with the pile are great :)

coco said...

I'm loving those shoes.
And I want to see everyone in Rodarte too. I don't think they will do Fashion Rocks though, although it would be AMAZING if they did.

Annie said...

Very cute and smart-looking. :]

Sarah said...

these pictures of you look like taken from a magazine!

Love your dress, such a unique style. And the photos are really cool.

Anna Pope said...

I love the harlequin-inspired print so much.

The composition of the second to last photo is very very nice!

Claudia said...

I love the pictures! And the dress ofcourse.

Penny said...

I love the pattern, and your photogaphy - it's always very interesting!

Jill said...

Lovely pictures as per usual. I'd definetly be scared to do poses like those on such a steep hill, but they came out great. Lovely print on the dress.

Sarah said...

ah whatever, the shoes look great on you! I think it's great that you don't feel you always have to wear heels because of your height, I know a few people who do and I kind of feel sorry for them because they look so uncomfortable. These flats in particular I think really work, it might be the cut or the color, but they're fab!

AlicePleasance said...

Beautiful dress and beautiful set for your pictures! I recently bought an Harlequin inspired vintage dress but it's quite large on the bust so I'll have to resize it a little before I could figure out how to wear it!

Milla said...

Adore, this outfit, adore.

susie_bubble said...

Love the print...works so well on you...

Tina :) said...

I absolutely love harlequin! My mom recently purchased one of Miu Miu's harlequin-print bags.
That is such a cute dress, I love the color theme!

copperoranges said...

VANESSA DATORRE and LEIRE URZAIZ said...

I love the pics and the way you have find the perfect look with the "arlequin" inspiration...

congratulations!!

Aretha said...

Congratulations! I saw your blogger of the moment logo and I just have to say that you deserve it! You have a very unique look and this post is no exception!

Farren said...

the dress you wore looks so similar to the above dresses you posted from the runway. it's insane! and it looks amazing on you! =)

Ashleigh said...

What a great photo shoot....don't worry about the shoes..I seriously have about 70 pairs and there are about 5 pairs that I constantly wear...the others feel left out :s...

Lauren! said...

What fantastic colors. I really like the composition of your photos? Who takes them? I mean, I would assume it was you, but I can usually see most of your appendages in the photos and they are often too freaky of angles to accomodate a tripod.

Lady Smaggle said...

This dress is fanatastic! You look awesome, I love it.

Jenny H. said...

yess tennis camp was exhausting!

aizat.cinta.goddess said...

yes!!it is fantastic

Pratishtha Durga said...

That's a really pretty outfit. Those shoes are lovely, and I can see why you'd want to wear them so often. At my end, I did some more shopping (I really MUST stop), and almost ended up buying one more pair of red shoes.

I can somehow see you so comfortably in the role of a fashion stylist. you are ever so resourceful.

atelier said...

each time I visit your blogs your pics are better and better! the shoes are the eye-catching part of the outfit, great look

Anna said...

your poses are always the best!
i've also been admiring miu miu's harlequin shifts.
swap links?

I heart milk said...

Ahhh that dress is really cool. the colors are amazing.

MizzJ said...

Original photos as always. I love the way the rich greens look against your skin and the contrast with your red hair. You kinda remind me of some sort of quirky elf that got lost in a suburb somewhere haha.

Caitlin said...

That dress is simply amazing.

ambika said...
