Same Old Story With A Different Name.

So you may've seen the new PreFall Collections from Carolina Herrera, Valentino, Oscar de la Renta, Zac Posen, Dolce and Gabanna and Chanel on or the immense amount of pictures at Emma Watson at almost every single one of them (the new generation of fembot?)... but was anyone else as disappointed by them as me? there was almost nothing new and original, i swear i'd seen it all before, except Zac Posen, because he never fails. Here's two quick recaps for ya'll.


Worst. Hate. Least Favourite is an understatement:

....uh, that's just gross.


also, i've got a new playlist for you all to enjoy.
It's superlong because I don't plan on changing it for the rest of the year.
What I did was pick my favourite songs of the year that weren't off of my top 10 favourite albums because that's repetitive and you already know that I like the bands that I chose for my top 10 albums. So here it is:

Art Brut - "Pump Up The Volume"
off the album It's A Bit Complicated.
Beck - "Timebomb"
off the album Timebomb - Single
Bright Eyes - "Four Winds"
off the album Cassadaga
Charlotte Gainsbourg - "5:55"
off the album 5:55
CSS - "Alala"
off the album Cansei de Ser Sexy
Every Time I Die - "We'rewolf"
off the album The Big Dirty
Feist - "I Feel It All"
off the album The Reminder
The Hives - "Tick Tick Boom"
off the album The Black and White Album
The Jonas Brothers - "Games"
off the album The Jonas Brothers
Klaxons - "Golden Skans"
off the album Myths of the Near Future
The View - "Skag Trendy"
off the album Hats Off to the Buskers
Tegan and Sara - "Back In Your Head"
off the albums The Con
LCD Soundsystem - "North American Scum"
off the album Sound of Silver
Silverchair - "Straight Lines"
off the album Young Modern
Kanye West - "The Good Life"
off the album Graduation
M.I.A. - "Paper Planes"
off the album Kala
Maroon 5 - "Can't Stop"
off the album It Won't Be Soon Before Long
Maxïmo Park - "Girls Who Play Guitars"
off the album Our Earthly Pleasures
Radiohead - "Weird Fishes/Arpeggio"
off the album In Rainbows
Rooney - "When Did Your Heart Go Missing?"
off the album Calling the World
Shout Out Louds - "Tonight I Have to Leave It"
off the album Our Ill Wills
Spoon - "The Underdog"
off the album Gagagaga

I haven't actually seen these collections yet, but I love the Zac Posen purple high waist skirt and blouse combo, (possibly because it's all I wear these days) and also because it reminds me of the Miu Miu AW06 collection which has been one of my favourites in recent years.

and what is the deal with C Herrera? I find both her and her collections incredibly puzzling.
And well, the fact that she has Renee "Blah" Zellweger as her muse says it all, really.

PS, Damnn you music taste!
I saw CSS last thursday (fantastic, naturally) and seeing my hero M.I.A on sat. Will be singing along to Mango Pickle like a pro.
