There’s something so fresh about a white t-shirt.  It can connote so many different things — a stack of clean laundry, a tie-dye project begging to happen, something you grabbed this morning off James Dean’s floor…  Their potential is unlimited!  If I were marooned on a desert island, I’d hope to be outfitted in one.

– Motorcycle jeans, Domino
– White flip flops, Rainbow
– Headscarf, Emilio Pucci

The funny thing about fashion is that designers are a minimum of 6 months ahead of us.  One might argue that this fuels rampant consumerism, but in truth it takes about that long for new merchandise to be concepted, created, promoted, and work its way through the usual channels and onto shelves.  We’re just entering into Fall and already Spring 2011 collections have been highly anticipated, sauntered down runways, tweeted about, and now, summarized.  What Spring 2011 trends are you most excited about?  Or are you more about living in the present?

They say you can’t criticize a person until you walk a mile in his/her shoes.  But what if the sole criticism you had was about that person’s shoes?

Enter the Sam Edelman Zoe, source of much debate — both personally and in the blogosphere.  Modeled after Balenciaga’s Fall 2006 harness boot, it was all I could do to not succumb to their chunky, Clydesdale-like fabulosity.  On the third re-issue, my resistance finally wore down and I’m now a proud — and tall, holy hell! — owner.

When I was in 5th and 6th grades, all the coolest girls in my class dressed preppy.  V-neck sweaters, tartan plaid, Gap jeans…  “Mom,” I said, “I think I want to start dressing preppy.”

A few hours later, we sat down to watch America’s Funniest People, the awful spinoff to America’s Funniest Home Videos, the awful spinoff to Full House.  “Ooh I LOVVVEE her dress,” I gushed about the skin tight, off the shoulder minidress that Dave Coulier’s co-host was wearing.  Did I mention it was printed with multi-colour dollar bills?

Why I was taking fashion cues from an obvious fashion victim, I’ll never know.  But my instincts were right on.  Cause still to this day, I have problems pulling off American sportswear.  This is my ode to Michael Kors’s Fall 2010 Ready-to-WearDanielle Meder’s is much, much more compelling.  Thanks anyway, Bazaar, but I think I’ll sit out this trend.

Yesterday I blogged about my new Hansel from Basel socks and linked out to a style guide on legwear that included a photo from Rag & Bone’s Fall 2010 runway show.  “Who is that model?” I asked my very fabulous friend.  “It’s not Gemma Ward, but it sure looks like her!”

We couldn’t figure it out, and I almost forgot about it, until late last night I caught a few minutes of the movie The Strangers.  “Gemma Ward‘s in this?!” I exclaimed.  Unsurprisingly, my boyfriend, who subscribes to New Scientist and Civil Engineering magazines, replied, “I have no idea who that is.”

Many people might think 2 Gemma Ward sightings in 1 day is ironic.  They are mistaken.  But it is a strange coincidence.  One that threw my subconscious into overdrive.  Because I woke up around 4 AM after a dream in which I said, “Jessica Stam!  The girl in the photo is Jessica Stam.”

It’s not — it’s Sasha Pivovarova — who totally looks like Gemma Ward (further proof here and here).  But here’s an illustrated tee with all 3 of these lovely, dollfaced* ladies.

*Which happens to be Gemma’s name in The Strangers.  Nope, that’s still not ironic.  In fact, it’s decidedly unironic.
