making my list.

Posted in Dee-Luxe Editions, Fashion, Shiz I Love by Virgil Sparks on December 15, 2010

it’s been a bit since i’ve blogged, so i thought what better way to get back into the swing of things than a list of christmas presents for you all to peruse!

 

reading material:

Lanvin Book: It will look great in my apartment, as well as a fantastic source of inspiration… besides, i’m a total lanvinophile.

“The Art of Happiness” – i’m reading it right now, but i borrowed it from a friend and can’t highlight/underline/write in the margins, so i must own my own copy. if you haven’t read it, i highly suggest it, the beauty of simplicity of buddhism is slowly changing my life.

things to make me look cool:

Ray Ban Wayfarer: i’ve never owned a nice pair of sunnies… and since i didn’t get my lanvin ❤ h&m ones, these will do.

Prova Leopard Fringe Scarf: LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! need this in my LIFE!

lanvin:

Lanvin Alien Print Tee: love this color, and love cool tees.

Lanvin Black Satin Bowtie: cus i’m classy.

Lanvin Parrot Embroidered Cap: seriously? mazeballs.

bling:

 

Alkemie Deco Scarab Necklace: bug-a-boo!!!! and they donate to a charity of your choice!

Rosewood Cuff: i’m loving wood jewelry right now, and this one is ideal because bangles so often won’t fit my hands!!!

Seed Bead Necklace: my bestie amy has one similar to this in pink, but i LOVE this green! and it’s so big!!!! dying!

Gloves:

i’ve been searching everywhere for the perfect thin, leather gloves. i used to have an amazing pair of motorcycle ones but lost them at a pizza place on a friends birthday… yes, i had been drinking. now stop judging me.

Dents Leather Studded Driving Gloves

Kenneth Cole Chain Leather Gloves

Labour of Love Leather and Suede Gloves

i think that about sums it up for now. wouldn’t want to look greedy. though i’m surprised there’s not a bag on here anywhere….

my game must be off.

happy shopping.

flea.

Posted in Dee-Luxe Editions, Shiz I Love by Virgil Sparks on February 16, 2010

so, i’m in love with the amazing-ness that is the brooklyn flea market. if i had it my way, i would be there every day. the vintage is amazing, the selection of new works by local artists/jewelers is top notch, and the food is super tasty!

i got the above brushed, mohair/wool sweater in this awesome mustard. along with the slightly used (which makes it slightly better) dooney & bourke bag bellow.

i see all these homos and bros running around town with their satchels and clutches and i just want a little recognition for being the one to start this shit.

i’ve been using purses since i would take my mom’s old ones to carry around my toys on long car trips and to and from play dates.

just sayin’.

+J

Posted in Dee-Luxe Editions, Shiz I Love by Virgil Sparks on February 5, 2010

if you didn’t know, my “day job” is partnering with jil sander (the person) on a special line called +J at uniqlo.

this was my favorite piece from the collection. it took me a month to get, (not that it’s unreasonably priced, it’s just we couldn’t use our discount at first, and then when we could, we were always out of the size i wanted, since i wanted it a size up to be a little relaxed in the fit.)

but it’s tres chic.

no?

more black.

Posted in Dee-Luxe Editions, Fashion, Shiz I Love by Virgil Sparks on January 15, 2010

this week at my new job, we were required to wear all black for the launch of the spring +J line. (that’s right kids, i’m once again a retail ho; i’m now at the uniqlo store.) not owning a lot of black to begin with, i used my new discount on one of the already inexpensive (but surprisingly nice) cotton/cashmere sweaters.

i purchased the sweater 3 sizes too big, and my original intention was to put a pleat twist in the shoulder, to give it some interest, but after a couple of tries, i realized that while the shirt was slouchy enough in it’s width, it wasn’t long enough to give a nice silhouette. and the fact that it was already assembled, meant that the placement of the detail was always semi-awkward. so, upon the removal of the final attempts try, i accidently put a couple small holes in it while removing the seam. so i decided to go with it.

after 3 days and several hours of much hand work, i’m extremely pleased with the results, and can add another notch to my d.i.y. post.

my co-workers were smitten.

new. old boots.

Posted in Dee-Luxe Editions by Virgil Sparks on December 30, 2009

in the spirit of my new shopping rules and ‘uniform‘ dressing, i stole a pair of my father’s slightly worn work boots and made a slight enhancement with grosgrain laces. i think they came out pretty cool.

and thanks to my bestie laurel for the awesome christmas gift below. we picked it out together. i was down to two choices in the store, and i opted for the handmade, dyed coconut shell necklace, it’s really beautiful in person, with the varying tones and scratches.

I threw them together with a slouchy denim shirt, and a pair of long johns, both purchased from my recent trip to iowa. sorry for the low pic quality, i’m working on acquiring something with a little more oomph.

anywho, i think this is definitely  a step in the right direction for my evolving closet. how bout you?
