Rodarte vs. Temperlay

I’ve got to say, when it comes to avant garde I go crazy over Rodarte and Temperlay. I’ve already shared with you my affections for the Rodarte style via Bullett magazine and Saoirse Ronan, but let me tell you its become a bit of an obsession. ¬†I am determined to skim past Rodarte for Target because truthfully they cannot expect that to satisfy my craving. Oh but before I do tell you, I must share yet snother set of beautiful pictures of Miss Ronan below..

and she¬†definitely¬†has that look does she not? She looks like a doll. Do tell me, am I the only one who saw her grow up in a day? It seems it was only yesterday she was a young tween at the premiere for Atonement! But now? She even looks young in her latest film, but looking at her outside that glass box or ‘fourth wall‘ sort of state, she is her own person. Which only makes her characters that much more impressive. She has that ability to be transformed. Something I do believe the true and deserving actor/actress would have. Oh but my opinions of Hollywood is for another day and all that wasted impressionism and symbolic character funding, but please do remind me to post on that topic later.

My words are not enough to explain the aspirations to be this sort of person. Yes i will tell you now I am my own ametuer-local-hobbying actress of some sort and i absaloutely love it. I have dreams- like all the rest of you- and I could like and die but I will say this over and over again- if there was the choice I would not just be one of the many but look at these examples above and see how the mind can work- ah sometimes I can hardly stand to see all this. Jealousy wells up inside of me. Now I cant say Im good because, well for

Favorite contant piece of Rodarte

many reasons but you know this is just not the place- not the time and all that hoopla. [My favorite piece of Rodarte is to the right here- and please do not get me wrong I am not obsessed with Ronan. She is lovely and passionate about her wonderful career but all we humans have out marks of territory. She did just so happen to be the one wearing my favorite piece it did indeed have nothing to do with her. Oh bless her heart.]

And ah, you see, it takes no time at all to turn yet another post of mine, intending other topics, into another mural of wishful talent and of my wanton. Okay but back to the topic of Rodarte and more so this time around, Temperlay! Temperlay.. well how do I put this?

 

Temperlay is a marvelous bound of workmanship, but¬†nonetheless¬†it is not nearly as captivating to my eye and particular style as Rodarte is. Though, they have amazing taste in color, and I compliment them on their shape in detail, It is not my favorite. They have their moments- oh boy they have their moments! of capturing my eye for their unique taste- but they also have their slow times of boring ventures and their pieces sometimes tend to well look like everyone else’s designs. But like I said, and below where I’ve posted in my opinion some of their best work you can see, they have their moments of craftsmanship and fashion¬†genius¬†just like Rodarte.

And I do think it is most important to see that they are therefore capable of creating works like these.

 

 

 

 

I really think below they went a little far, sort of copy-catting Louis Vuiton this year but oh well their models are working for it.

And so ends this fashion show, so have a sunny sunday, crossing our fingers for some snow here in Louisville.

Reverb Update!

 

There are always economic disadvantages in the obstacle course on our victorious parade through fashion paradise I call online shopping, but despite such, Id like to draw your attention to a few irresistible I picked out from Shop Style and Far Fetch. (Cheaper prices= Pixie Market [by slight])

Rodarte- Optic Woord Peplum Dress

This Rodarte Optic Wood Peplum is a favorite. I first spotted it in Bullett Magazine, worn by my favorite Irish actress, Saoirse Ronan.  The actress has been spotted in Rodarte many times prior, and I cant help but imagine she favors the brand.  This dress is such a beautiful design, I envy Ronan!

Ronan in Bullett

I couldnt help but notice the color choices contrary Ronan’s skin tone and hair. It compliments her whole figure very nicely and in the magazine (click above to see more) we see this peplum top paired with some high waisted trousers (another nice vice).

 

 

 

Yves Saint Laurent Vintage Detail Skirt

Oh and this next one! How I love Yves Saint Laurent! Their play with style and boutique makes me lick my lips! and something about the tie in the middle of this particular piece brings it all together and sends time back to stop in the 40s yet splash a little grandmother delima inside the wear. I love the style of the peplum folds and the creasing in them as well. You can see why I might think Im in love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope you enjoyed this small preview
