Howdy all! I do apologize for the delay in posts when I’ve been trying to be SO good, but I’m at my parents house right now… and for those of you who have been following the blog for a while, that is a death rattle for blogging- the internet here sucks! Anywho, big announcement; I’M GOING TO NYC FASHION WEEK IN SEPTEMBER :D!!!!! I’m extremely excited! So, I figured I should probably look ahead to what I will be seeing people wearing while I’m there.

Ergo, here are my favorite 4 Fall 2010 Fashion Trends with the designer I feels epitomizes the trend the best; ’50s, The Cape, The Feminine Pant, and Clean and Bare.

Hope you’re having a great week!

’50s Prada

The waists are tight, the skirts are long, and the chests are showing.

Oscar de la Renta’s take on ’50s (It’s a tie)

Not really ’50s… but gorgeous none the less

CKing of Clean Calvin Klein

No thrills, no frills, just blain (plain an bland… new creation… I like it… I think I’ll keep it.) And who does understated-clean better than CK?

Balmain’s Feminine Pant

Unpleated and boot cut. Finally getting away from the man-trouser.

Yves Saint Laurent’s Cape

Perhaps a bit dramatic… but since when was fashion about being sensible?These two, slightly more unorthadox of a cape design. Definitely props for creativity.

I was extremely pleased and surprised by this month’s (April 2010) issue of Gentlemen’s Quarterly. I can’t remember the last time I flipped through their mag and got so many useful tid-bits from it. Maybe it’s just becuase I’m very much on the spring-bandwagon, or maybe they really stepped up their game on this issue. In any case, I’ve included a few iPhone (excuse the quality) pics of my favorite things from the issue. Enjoy, and hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
-Andrew J

Hands down my favorite pick from the issue- The Lands End Canvas grey chambray shirt. I already ordered mine this morning ha. I mean come on, it’s $60 for this awesome shirt!

I already have a pair of desert boots, but these Calvin Klein Desert Boots kinda rock. And most people just don’t know how comfortable desert boots really are! (I happen to be wearing mine today)

This piece they did over an “updated college freshman look”. I think many should look to it for inspiration. Please take special notice when they say to throw out the sweat pants in favor of these khaki’s.

Speaking of khaki’s. I’m going to be picking up a pair of these these slim-fitting khaki’s from Gap ASAP. Classic certainly seems to be a big thing for spring… then again, when isn’t it?

Priciest clothing pick from the issue, this Marc by Marc Jacobs polo which goes for $150.

Okay maybe I lied, I’m sure the Lacoste blazer is more than $150, but without a price included… who knows :)? I really need to update my Lacoste polo’s, but I miss the small croc, I don’t like this new big one.

I want to get either the Bulova watch or the Michael Kors one… which do you think?


Posted in Fashion, Life, Movies, Weekend Recap with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 15, 2010 by Me & Marisa

This weekend was actually pretty fun. Simultaneously busy and low key.
Friday: Worked till about three, then I figured it was a lost cause and took off for the evening. Met up with my friend Tyler at his place and then went for Margaritas and Mexican food at my favorite Mexican restaurant Tarahumara’s here in Norman. Their sangria margarita swirl is just about the best thing ever, but be careful… one and you are good, two; have fun standing up… I kept it to one ;). After that watched the Olympics opening ceremonies and then a few of us ducked out to go see Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. Only it was sold out, so ended up waiting around at the movie theater for an hour and then saw Valentines Day. I figured it was appropriate. Great movie by the way, and strangely enough didn’t make me feel sad about Valentines Day ha.

The Warren Theater, iPhone pic trying to capture how foggy it was… not very successfully I might add.

Saturday: Got up to watch the Lacoste fashion show at 9:30 (really early I know), only to have it never load for me on Facebook. Bah! It was really really gorgeous that day though so I got out of the house and went and drove around, grabbed lunch, did errands, and browsed the bookstore (my favorite pasttime). I also decided to get a little creative over the weekend so I picked up a Calvin Klein suit coat and started experimenting on it… That post will be tomrrow ;).

Sunday: Ah yes, Valentines Day. Hopefully you and your loved one had a very special one! I myself, being by myself, decided to have a Valentines Day  with myself ha. And looking back on it now, it was actually a very enjoyable one. First off I watched the Calvin Klein men’s show live. Then feeling inspired again I finished off a good portion of my Calvin Klein jacket, pictured below (still have some rough edges to finish off), then I went to the store, got myself some chocolates (a rather large box actually), made myself dinner that evening, music, candles, relaxed in the tub and then ended the whole night by watching Sunset Boulevard while coming to the conclusion once again of; They just don’t make ’em like they used to. All in all, a very good day and a very good weekend. Hope yours was wonderful as well!

In case you weren’t at the show, or just missed it on here are some favorites of mine, and some trends I picked out.  Calvin Klein is one of my absolute favorite designers as I feel the designs capture effortless elegance and class flawlessly. Hope you are having a wonderful Valentines Day!!! Weekend recap tomorrow.
-Andrew J

Opening look. Very traditional Calvin.

I was surprised by this suit, it reminded me more of something I would see out of the house of Gucci than CKM.

Calvin Klein seems to be jumping on the printed suit bandwagon as well. There was a white suit with a much… bolder… print, but I couldn’t capture it because it hurt my eyes.

I salivated over the two trenches they showed. Look at them, giving Burberry a run for their money 🙂

This was, in my opinion, the most intersting look that they showed… It was probably genuine leather, but it looked like some form of synthetic. In any case, it looked like a built in scarf on the jacket when it came down the runway… Very odd, but I kinda liked it.

And a suit made out of the mystery material. Also, not sure if you can tell or not, but the pants are TIGHT! Like really tight… like retro-how-did-you-ever-breathe tight.

Beautiful look.

The mystery fabric in black. I like this one.

I want this half quilted leather jacket ASAP. When does this come off the line?

The super high-back-of-neck thing was everywhere in the show. I really, really liked it. It was almost like a 1/2 turtleneck.

Fresh Faces…Different Places: Les Hommes
Today I bring you the male models that I feel like had a great year and are definitely my favorites. Did you think the girls had all the fun?

Vladimir Ivanov
Immediately when Ivanov starting modeling for Calvin Klein everyone knew he would be moving on to bigger things. Ivanov walked in 14 of the Spring 2010 menswear shows and has had a slew of magazine editorials. This guy is on his way to superstar status.

 Johannes Linder
This was Linder’s debut year and he was incredible. Walking exclusively for Jil Sander for the Fall 2009 shows and then in a large amount of the Spring 2010 shows, Linder dominated the runway and I assume we will see a lot more of him this next year.

Today we’re doing something we’ve never done before here on Me & Marisa, and that is having a guest blogger. Today the post is coming from one of my extremely fashion savvy friends; Nicolas Bebout. Nicolas has aspirations to go to work at a New York City modeling agency, so it seems only fitting that he would be doing a post on his favorite models of the year. Hope you all had a great weekend! I’m afraid I’m down with the flu :/. Take it away Nicolas!

Fresh Faces…Different Places: Les Femmes
Fashion may make the man, but a model is what creates the excitement…at least I think so anyways. I thought it would be a brilliant idea for Me and Marisa to have a couple posts about models that were outstanding this past season/year. So I pitched the idea to Andrew and here we are!

Abbey Lee
Perhaps my favorite female model that is making a huge name for herself at the moment. Lee is making her mark on the runway, walking in shows this past season for the likes of Givenchy, Gucci, Phillip Lim, Zac Posen and Lanvin, just to name a few. She has also made her mark in editorials, major ad campaigns (Calvin Klein and Gucci fragrance), and even walked in the 2009 Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Watch out, this girl is on fire!!

Anna Selezneva
A standout from when I saw her walk the Michael Kors Fall 2009 show, Anna Selezneva reminds me of younger Jessica Stam with her piercing eyes and ability to really take on whatever she is modeling. Selezneva had a great runway season for the Spring 2010 shows and is sure to be back for the Fall 2010 season.

Alexander Wang Spring 2010

Burberry Spring 2010

Hermès Spring 2010

Valentino Spring 2010

Maryna Linchuk
Maryna has created a great balance between editorial/covers and runway. She excelled in the Spring 2010 show season and creates a great presence when she is photographed.  

Christian Dior Spring 2010

Dolce and Gabbana Spring 2010

Stella McCartney Spring 2010

Gucci Spring 2010

Toni Garrn
Toni had a great year, especially in print. While Garrn walked in shows like Bottega Veneta, Christian Dior, Fendi, and Chanel, her print work is what got my attention. Major advertising campaigns and covers propelled Toni to more than just a runway model and I can’t wait to see where she shows up next year.

Alright so as I mentioned, this week is going to be my recap of fashion week for S/S10 (That’s Spring/Summer 2010), so I’ll get right into it. Here are a few of my favorite picks from Anna Sui, Calvin Klein, and Vivienne Westwood. Enjoy!

Anna Sui Spring Summer 2010
Anna Sui‘s name is becoming much more of a household one because of the new line she is doing for Target, however, her ready-to-wear line from the Spring/Summer 2010 fashion show displays why she is so popular. She merges together high fashion with easily worn pieces that you wouldn’t think twice about seeing on the street. I’m actually a little surprised here because going through the shows, I actually didn’t like the majority of her pieces, I thought they were too retro, or too busily patterned, yet to my surprise, I saved more looks from her than any other designer in today’s post. Her shoes really surprised me, they were awesome!
Vivienne Westwood S/S10Ahh Vivienne Westwood. Perhaps one of the most wearable designers out there today. Yet she never loses her quirky edge and is constantly changing up her line’s style. These are just a few backstage pictures taken by Dazed Digital, I may have to do a separate collage for her runway looks.
Calvin Klein Spring Summer 2010And last but certainly not least for today’s post, Calvin Klein, one of my all-time favorite designers when it comes to understated elegance and class. Not to mention, the house of Calvin usually sticks to the color pallet I like to wear most often. Great stuff from them this season. They had some very basic loose fitting dresses that I wasn’t crazy about, but then I saw these designs and all was forgiven. Great work Calvin Klein!
