Dear ....

Dear Junya Watanabe,

came to the office today and i really would like to keep it Please Please Please?? reasons why below.

a) its a sample and i fit it! do you know how Many samples fit fat girls actually fit in?? none therefore I should have fun cape coat scarf thingy it will increase my considerably low self esteem.

b) i never get anything free if i had this i'd stop making the sad face in the picture and i'd behappy and you would totes want that right??

(C) if i had this i would make a concerted effort to get on jak & jill , satorialist, facehunter etc etc i'd even brush my hair maybe put on some heels, this in turn would be excellent advertising for you earning you more big bucks and thus paying for cape coat thingy.

s i've demonstrated above i would really benifit from having this piece so if you can just let mekeep it that would be great.

Many thanks

Question Time part 3

So here we go again, this time we have the everyone's favorite fashionista Julia Frakes I love her for so many reasons, Her enviable sense of style, her way with words ( Julia contributes to several magazines Lula, Vogue Girl Korea, 25 Magazine, Vogue Nippon, InStyle UK etc) and her lovely scummy Tumbler called Yes! a bunny stream of conch its full of oh so cute images, interviews and fun stuff that makes a girl feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Name: Julia Frakes

Age: 20

Location: New York City (downtown)

What do you do? Fashion writer, model (represented by Next Model Management - Special Bookings), stylist

If your life had a theme song, what would it be? Perhaps "17 Pink Sugar Elephants" by Vashti Bunyan. Although my mum told me that she originally settled on the name "Julia" from my eponymous Beatles song on The White Album.

Who was your first crush? Conan O'Brien.

Best year you weren’t alive for? 1776, 1976.

What film makes you all romantic? The Big Sleep with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall; Franco Zeffirelli's Romeo & Juliet and Jane Eyre (with Charlotte Gainsbourg); Léa Pool's Lost and Delirious; and admittedly Nora Ephron's You've Got Mail.

When's the last time you felt nostalgic? Listening to Fleetwood Mac always reminds me of my childhood: specifically driving in my mom's old green Land Rover to the horse stables or to Miller's Orchard to pick up apples and gourds and pumpkins in the autumn.


Possession: I would never consider her a 'possession' per se... but without a doubt my roly-poly adorable ragdoll cat, Daisy. What an amazing listener.

Smell: Coastal Maine. On the fragrance front: Le Labo's sprightly Ambrette 9, Penhaligon's sentimental Bluebell, L'Artisan Parfumeur's fleeting Cote d'Amour and Byredo Parfum's subtle Blanche.
Candles: Ladurée's Amandine, Alexa Rodulfo's Bois Blanc and Cire Trudon's Spiritus Sancti.

Guilty pleasure: Stephen Jones hats, Rachel Maddow, Bill Maher, One Lucky Duck's raw vegan "ice cream", collecting an altogether insane amount of bizarrely herbally candles, jamming out to staggeringly profane music in my car at equally profane volumes.

Cake: is melt-in-your-mouth delectable from Pure Food and Wine near Gramercy Park.

love is... in the words of William Shakespeare: "love is a spirit of all compact of fire"

God is... awesome, all-pervasive... and entirely relative; surely not without a sense of humour.

You is... not taking myself too seriously.

Fashion is... all in the moment.

I'm back

So after a few weeks of angry emails, multi tasking and basically trying to do six things at once. I've finally come up for air .

Here is a brief rundown of what i've been doing.....

I helped on the Louis Vuitton Archive exhibition which is currently on Bond street It was jolly good fun. I also went to the party saw Donna summer died. Saw Carine Roitfeld dancing to Donna summer died twice I then got very very drunk.
A day later I went to some ray ban launch, I couldnt tell you for the life of me what it was for, i did However drink a lot and see the new york dolls and get some free shades = awesome

Then on Tuesday i went to the CSM graduate Show twas super fun lots of things to see my fave was Alex Mullins i heart him.

on wednesday night was the amazing Margiela Exhibition at Somerset house G&t mini hamburgers and a brass band Bliss highlights
  • seeing Daphne Guinness looking amazing
  • Having some random dude say " i love your t shirt" no one ever likes anything i wear So that was lovely even if he was mocking me.
  • mini hamburgers.
  • cheese table YUM.
  • oh the Exhibition check out this man wall

Thursday was the LCF graduate fashion Show sat next to the lovely steve from style salvage we were hoping for a member of girls aloud to be the celeb guest but it was edith bowman zzzzz Clothes were ace though. "The we woz robbed" prize needs to go to Amber Siegel her menswear collection was a dream and she deserved collection of the year.

right that's all So far i'm sure there's more but I've forgotten.
