"V winter MMXIII obsessions: all___________ everything"
i loathe the word trends or the idea of following one; but, i’ve taken a liking to the matte top coat nail polish trend. but, then i realized my obsession doesn’t stop there….all matte everything.
II. japanese designers
i’ve had a thing for the peculiar commes des garcon founder, rei kawakubo, for some time now; but, i'm realizing i’m quite fond of most japanese designers. it’s something about the construction and tailoring…all japanese designers everything.
being from the south i’m instantly drawn to a trap beat, or anything associated with the south in general…all ratchet everything.
IV. faux designer
i’m certainly not the richest person in the world nor am i the poorest; but, i find the outlandish price points of designer tees absurd. instead, i’ll opt to pay a reasonable $50-$100 for….all faux designer tees everything.
during these unbearable winter months, i plan to hop aboard the breaking bad bandwagon….all netflix everything.
