We are pretty late here in Vancouver too, so.... THANK YOU @TEDORE. 
I loved all the looks. Isabel creates a resort collection that combines chic with casual. A bit of rock star with a softer edge. I respect this entire collection. I was being picky, and this made my cut. I do this because it feels like casting! ;)

Alicia Keys - Superwoman / THE MOST INTERESTING FASHION ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS OF THE SEASON ARTICLE BY ERICA CHIESI ON SATURDAY NOVEMBER 28TH, 2015 ~ www.thethreef.com

I have to go but I don't want to forget about this. These are my favourites, but I have more to say. ...I hope.

"Marni
Photographs of impact that aren’t only “advertising images”, but true works of art. Marni has called for its Fall Winter 2015 Campaign, the Anglo-American artist Jackie Nickerson, who portrays a proudly independent woman, with a strong character, yet thoughtful. The model, Marte Mei van Haaster, seems lost in thought, sometimes only part of her body is visible, as if the very center of the scene was somewhere else. Powerful images that characterize the design and sensibility of the brand."

Time Will Reveal - El Debarge / FALL 2015 MENSWEAR Marc Jacobs ~www.vogue.com

I like over-sized when styled well, but I prefer fitted and tailored. If I can tailor every special piece I own, I would. I would have my suits made to fit, my pants tailored to the way I feel most comfortable in, while still keeping up with a modern look. My dress shirts, ALL should be tailored along with suits and sport jackets. Marc Jacobs presents a look book that is not only inspirational but very wearable and stylish. 

My fave's...
THIS is my ULTIMATE FAVOURITE look of the series, this on and the next... 2

"The True Cost of ‘Fast Fashion’ Is Something Many of Us Didn’t Know"
"What’s it about? Where and how clothing is made now, especially as compared with the way the industry used to be. “Fast fashion” has created a world where we consume 80 billion pieces of clothing a year. 
And it’s about producing those articles of clothing with little or no regard for the workers or the environment." ...
Speaking of...I recently went to Nordstrom and my friend HAD to show me the price of PRADA rubber slip ons like what you wear to the gym, (think ADIDAS... the one's that are very common), in the shower or home, just kicking around. +$500!!!! Are you trying to insult us? WE are not stupid. Only stupid greedy people would buy that. 

THAT IS CRIMINAL!

Runaway - Kanye West W/ Lyrics / The Top 10 Men’s Shoes From Paris Fashion Week Fall 2016 ~footwearnews.com

"The Top 10 Men’s Shoes From Paris Fashion Week Fall 2016"

I have never been a fan of dress shoes. Even as a kid, I hated wearing them. I didn't know why then, but I do know why now!

Whenever I go to a department store or a 'shoe store'...or shop, I just walk along the selections until something pops out. It never happens. I try and I try, but I can't. Especially those ones that curl up at the end with all those whimsical detail in crocodile or some kind of textured leather...ew. I tried a pair on once and I swear to God, I couldn't help but laugh my ass off! I looked like some kind of joker...literally. I am short, 5'4". 

I have seen many guys with the same height, sometimes even shorter pull them off, or any kind of dress shoe, for that matter, and look good! When it comes to me I can clearly see that they're not meant for my personal style. They never feel comfortable and they make noise when you walk. I like quiet. So I'm thrilled we can wear sneakers and boots with suits and look so fine and appropriate. Here are my choices from the 10 provided. These are the 10 BEST from Paris Fashion Week according to http://footwearnews.com/2016/fashion/designers/paris-fashion-week-mens-shoes-fall-2016-runway-photos-187022/



RITA ORA - I Will Never Let You Down / Spring/Summer 2016 hair and makeup trends ~ www.cosmopolitan.co.uk...fun times.

Ok, there were 66 looks I admired and managed to sift out the ones I like. That simple. If you are looking for some kind of inspiration during that "half-way", period. Too long to be short, too short to be long. Do I want to go short? Shall I grow it out? Curly, straight?  Up, down, twist it around! Night, day? I HATE ALL OF YOU! #imbald

I really enjoyed reading about the inspiration for each look. Click the link. It's interesting. I'm so not a stylist or anything to do with hair and make-up....btw.
