Cause Me Pain, Hedi Slimane

I just died when I saw these striking images from Vouge Hommes International, Spring/Summer 09 issue. The editorial is called Super-Models and was shot by Hedi Slimane. Then again, I just love Hedi Slimane and his work. To think, I was in his presence on more than one occasion, and never got to formally meet him :/ ahh well, my day will come I suppose.

They Really Like Me!

Last night was the Substance/ Mountaineer Spring 09 awards banquet. We ate food, dispersed awards, and announced the new editors for next fall. The first set of awards were for 'Best Blog', and I am very happy to say I took first place, along with Michael's Lifestyle: Food and Wine blog . I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it :) and I am exciting to only continue to develop Haute Campus. 

I also took home second place for "Style 101", and Aldo won first place in photography for my spread in "The Rites of Spring". I've already expressed how much I love working in the journalism program and I can't wait for fall semester to bring you something even better for Substance Fall 09 (and I am also considering writing for the Mountaineer) as well as trying my hand at broadcast journalism. But for now, lets enjoy the summer!

In Motion

The world seems to spinning faster than ever, doesn't it? Another semester came and went and I can hardly believe its summer (although this weather would have you thinking different). So to help capture the essence of life in motion comes this series from photographer Lee Strickland. Don't blink, or you'll miss it.

School's out for summer!!!

No more pencils
No more books
No more teacher's dirty looks

ok, ok, so maybe I didn't get any dirty looks, but I made it through another set finals and I am looking forword to another action packed summer! Tonight is the Substance banquet, tomorrow is Stephanie's birthday, and then last minute preparations before I leave to Mexico City in a week! Also some exciting things happening to blog which I'll let you know about as they develop...

So what am I wearing? Patchwork madras shirt from H&M, navy flat front chinos, and tan suede bucks from Calvin Klein.

Suckers for Sneakers

Recently I've been shopping around for sneakers for my Mexico City trip at the end of the month, as I don't think a pair of leather moccasins will translate very well with a full week of sight seeing. Jack Purcell sneakers have always been my favorite but the two pairs I have are pretty beat up. I was looking through their website and came across these guys. Jack Purcell LTT converse in seersucker. I kinda liked the idea at first but now I'm wondering if they maybe a bit too country club cool (in a bad way). So what do we think? Suckers for sneakers or sneakers for suckers?, $65


The day has come! The highly anticipated release of Substance magazine spring 09 is finally here (well, at least I was highly anticipating its release). Being on the magazine as fashion editor this semester was an amazing opportunity and I was lucky to work with so many creative people. Pictured above are the pieces I put together for this issue. If you're ever on campus make sure to pick up and read all 62 pages of pure glossy glory.

Richard Avedon: Avedon Fashion

World renowned photographer Richard Avedon is responsible for some of the most iconic images in fashion photography, a homage to his work is paying payed at New York City's Center for Photography with an exhibition of nearly 175 photographs, titled "Avedon Fashion 1944-2000". The exhibition is running until September 6th. Another reason why I wish I lived in New York

Current Obsession: Tickle me Paisley

Is paisley making a come back? wether it officially is or not I could care less, but I am all about these paisley shorts from Jcrew. The first two pictured are  the Club Short made from a exclusive mill in Italy which Jcrew claims "[is] known for making some of the worlds best prints and patterns". The last pair is a board short with a beautifully orchestrated color combination that can bring out the summer spirit in anyone. Perfect for mojitos by the pool.

Starting at $78, available on
