Stalking style




zero maria cornejo. a while back i stumbled upon one of her dresses and haven't been able to shake it. worse than that, it led me to investigate the line. then the designer. now i frequently check on what she's doing.

when you find something you like, do you buy it (or lust after it), and leave well enough alone, or do you turn into a stalker?

stalker, everytime.
And thanks editor, now I have someone else to stalk - her clothes are incredible. I NEED the top dress.

stalker. yes. I stalk for other styles are in that line, where the garments are made, and where the brand stands in the fashion world (as in what kind of boutique will i find them).

jakjak - aren't they lovely. original, realistic, beautiful.

uniform lady - you are a detective!

A stalker, definitely, and for the reason I said in the previous post's comments. If something works really well for me one way I confirm that is by recognizing that I immediately want more of it. Because it worked, it's a solution. I have the thought, "Now *this* is what I should be wearing."

I'll stalk and lust if I can't afford it. But usually stalk since I tend to fall in love with menswear, especially tragic when I fall in love with men's shoes.

Vildy said...

Ohh, I know what you mean, Candid Cool, about the men's shoes. I was coveting a pair of luggage tan antique looking men's oxfords I saw in an ad. I could probably wear them in about a 6 and would, but could never have afforded them.

oh dear lord, yes, to all of the above.

lust first. leave well enough alone to convince self of self's self control. stalk as innnocent expression of one's self control (see, one is NOT buying, one is stalking!)

eventually cave at barney's end of season 75% off sale when said item is still hanging on rack because what MAN would ever buy purple cashmere sweat pants?

what? you had to have seen that coming. . .

editor said...

YAY! landis, did you really buy them? i used to have that kind of luck at the barneys sale in l.a. (where there would be no competition for the things i wanted) because i wanted the east-coast items.

landis smithers said...

i really did. and i suspect it's the same thing, left coasters don't get the lanvin for men so much.

editor said...

well done! stalking AND buying (on sale, no less) = vicarious thrill for me.
ps enjoy your edge - others' lack of vision/style is your cashmere advantage.
excuse me, i have to go back to stalking now.
