We can add another face to the recent influx of Dominican models. Meet Rose Cordero. At 16, she's just getting started but she's signed with Wilhelmina and apparently has an exclusive contract with Burberry Prorsum. She's really beautiful! Hopefully we'll see more of her.

I've been reading comments about this shot, and the general consensus is that folks think she doesn't look good here. In my opinion, she looks no worse than the dry modelbots who are all the rage now. Not to mention that she's been doing it since these girls were babies. But enough about that...can we talk about her outfit?! I must track this skirt down ASAP! I love the washed denim and the pleated panel in front. Plus, the navy and gold color combo is tops. I've been mad for stripes as of late, so this is right up my alley. The orange in her necklace works perfectly as well.

There's something about short shorts and high heels that has me chomping at the bit for warmer weather. I know it's not a new concept, but it's not a look that I've attempted before. My legs are one body part that I love so I'm going to really show them off this summer. No boobs or booty to speak of, so I gotta work what I got.
There was something off about this past fashion week that seemed a bit off. I couldn't put my finger on it until I was looking at this show with my friend Kyrk this evening. I'd commented that the models didn't look as good in the NYC shows this time. He responded that maybe the designers are using cheaper models...the recession special. I don't know if this is the truth, or if the current trend are these extra bland, interchangeable modelbots that we've seen clomping down the runways. But it sucks either way. The clothes are supposed to be the focus, but the models are supposed to bring them to life! 99% of these girls are DOA...dead on arrival. They don't make the lines appealing! I never thought I'd say this, but bring back the GLAMAZONS!

Orange juice and cayenne pepper marinated pork chops with green beans and fresh parsley. I'd cooked at my friends place. I bought the same dishes and silverware from Ikea when I moved into my place a few months ago without realizing it.

I'm all for chicks with knobby knees, long arms and square faces, since I happen to say "aye" for all those things myself. Her specs are the bomb dot com. When I can afford it, I'm going to get a sharp new pair myself (I can't see worth a damn...contacts have been the name of the game)
I am a bonafide Kate Lanphearophile! A friend introduced me to her a while back (thanks Kyrk!) and I am utterly hooked. She has a very distinct, crisp yet undone style that I love. She manages to look the same, yet different every time she's photographed. Not many people can make spikes chic! Her accessories are always just right, though she doesn't seem to wear earrings. But it works for her. And she seems...gasp...NICE! Bless you Mz. L!

Side bar: I know this isn't fashion related but I couldn't cook my way out of a wet paper bag a year ago, and I've been slowly teaching myself. I take photos when the plate looks especially appetizing...
1. Slow cooked pork tenderloin (I didn't have any strings beans left)
2. Fusili with red sauce, peppers, and baked chicken breasts.
3. Fried chicken with string beans and biscuits (Trader Joes biscuits are the bomb dot com)
This is my absolute favorite dress from the Fall 09 Herve Leger collection! I think the shoes in the second photo are Giuseppe Zanotti, but I need to research to be sure. I can see me in this outfit now...
UPDATE: I was right about the shoes! Giuseppe Zanotti
Remember when you were little and riding in a car or on a bus, and you and your friends or siblings would claim cars and houses that you passed? Black Benz...MINE! Three-story brick tudor...MINE! Well I'm not little anymore, but I'm calling this place...MINE!!!
Here's the rest.
Hello, hello! Welcome to my very first post, on my very first blog. My name is Devan, I live in Brooklyn, and I'm a fashion blogaholic. As is usually the case with these sort of things, I'm tired of creating files on my laptop, brimming with photos of clothing that I love and sharing them with no one! So, again welcome to my closet in my head! Enjoy!
