For All My Plaid Lovers - Dries Van Noten's Spring 13 RTW Collection

As a long time lover of plaid, I approve this collection!

This collection has a bold mix of sheer plaids, textured florals and flashes of metallic; all doused with a grungy edge. This is the kind of cool that we all wish we could easily exude. Love it!

Prada SS2013 - Toe Socks Anyone?

DVF x Google "Through Glass"

When I first saw the images of DVF and her models wearing the Google glasses, I thought, okay, just another endorsement/product placement thing. No biggie. But now, after seeing the DVF (Through Glass) video, the whole thing is just so undeniably cool.
