Watering Down

omg i've been so busy i haven't had time to update. i haven't gone shopping in three weeks, and although i've watched shows like The Hills and The City, and the final episode of ANTM, I haven't had the time to screencap those and write stuff about them.

So enough about me, and to shoes!

Christian Dior Fall 2007

Ok, almost everyone should know that this is one of my favourite collections from Dior since I had a picture of the ad in my file for almost a year. And of course, if I like this collection, it's pretty obvious I like the Spring 2007 Couture collection from Dior too, since this is pretty much the same, but watered down.

Watered down version.

Anyway, I found this picture while reading thecookiejar. I remember being obsessed with this pair of shoes because they had them in almost every colour and they were hot favourites with magazines. (and i had the ad in my file, always remember that!)

Can you imagine how disappointed I was to see that? I remembered playing with the green pair in Dior 2 years ago (they were selling at half price) and I don't remember the heel being so short so i don't know.

SO POINT IS: Shoes should be painful and pretty and for people to look at. If you want comfort go look at crocs or uggs or whatever.

ok since i'm at it let's compare what i have in my wardrobe to runway pieces. erm, almost all of them are from the marc by marc jacobs spring 2008 collection (another favourite of mine).

ANTM: Hawaiian Hip-Hop

America's Next Top Model Cycle 13: Hawaiian Hip-Hop

This episode is kinda boring if you're expecting girl drama and all. But if you're like me, and you like watching the girls dance, then you're in for a treat. I really loved the challenge, where the girls did the Hawaiian hulu-hip-hop, and of course since they're not really dancers, it was fall-off-your-seat funny.

The City: Friends and Foe-Workers

source MTV

Drama ensues in The City, and another city. The girls are, coincidentally, all sent to Miami Fashion Week. The star for this episode has to be Kelly. It's like she ate five children and she's still hungry.

'Desperate Housewives' Recap: The Grudge

Desperate Housewives Season 6 Episode 7: Careful The Things You Say
source ABC

Desperate Housewives is one of Word-Vomiting's favourite shows, and we feel that this week's episode is kind of underwhelming, considering the fantastic episodes we've been getting this season. We do, however, learn that Angie is a great cook, and she's taking Katherine's old job. How very Italian of her.

Maison Martin Margiela "Watch"

I've been pretty obsessed with this "watch" by Margiela but obviously I'd never pay EUR250 for that. So the next best thing would be to ask my dad to make one for me (he makes watches) but I haven't gotten around to that.

Anyway, how cool would it be to wear a watch with that? So you'd look like you're wearing two watches but there's only one, you get the idea.

I wish I could afford to spend £565 on shoes but obviously I can't, so the next best thing would be to post it here so I can look at them everyday after visiting my shopping baskets at those websites.

'ANTM' Recap: Free-diving

America's Next Top Model Cycle 13: Dive Deeper
source LA Times

I really am a sucker for reality television, mainly because of the fact that I take great delight in the misfortunes of others. Hence, imagine the look on my face when Sundai vaguely mentions she grew up in foster care. She promises to share the full story of her plight if she makes it to the top 4. It's probably a very juicy story as she mentions, "Get tissues." Cue sad music. Cue close-ups of Sundai's face. And then the camera cut to her sucking her thumb like a vulnerable little girl. We are only 3 minutes into the episode and emotions are already blowing out of proportions.

Wasting Money Online

The stuff i ordered online previously have finally arrived. So after finishing all my school work, I braved the rain in a ~chic wolf~ outfit (oversized grey sweater, really Missoni F/W 2009) to collect my shoes that came in a huge ass box.

ASOS Leather Perforated Lace-Up Shoes worn with green socks from Uniqlo

The shoes were a size bigger but they fit well and they're comfortable. And they were only £23. Gee, my ankles look so tan.

Other than those shoes, my stuff from Etsy also came on the same day, but they were small enough to be placed in the mailbox so i got them on Tuesday night when I came home from school. Coming home to packages are so exciting, it's almost as good as getting an orgasm, just saying.

The tuna can brooch was really nice but it wasn't a pin at the back so I kinda ruined it when i tried removing the clip. Dang. And the corsage pin thing was kinda different from the picture so I screamed "SCAMMERS!" when I opened it.

My mom's reaction to the corsage pin was "I'll show you how to make one when i find some cloth on Saturday." lol love it.

The Hills: I'm Done With You

Seriously, how many times have we heard "I'm done with you!" or "I can't do this anymore!" from Audrina.

source MTV

In this episode, there are many of those classic bitching scenes which are so typical of The Hills.
