Frida Giannini is obviously my home gurl

Hi, I'm The Style Outsider, you my readers i.e Mom might not know this but i'm sixteen, (mom i hope you know i'm sixteen) so as such my source of income is the money behind our family's living room couch. Penney love anyone?
Anydittle, due to this fact my clothing budget does not have enough coins to support a purchase from this seasons Gucci collection... BUT MAYBE YOU LOVELY READERS COULD BUY SOME STUFF AND SEND ME PICTURES SO I CAN FEEL JEALOUS? (Not product placement, I swear! Really. I just like living vicariously through people on the internet.)
This season, Gucci's head designer, Frida Giannini decided that art deco was the happening thing and created a collection that was simply drop dead gorgeous. But not even that, it was more like what happens when a panda runs away from a zoo and goes to New York and becomes president of the world! You know? Yep. Of course you do! You think about these things all the time.

Don't ya just love Style.Com's detail's section? Cause gurl, ya kow I do! Oh Lawdy!

Gareth Pugh and I are in a steamy hot love affair

But no seriously. Have you ever wanted to date a designer? Like, not in the nice friendly way but more in like the Yo-dawg-lets-have-hot-steamy-love kinda way? Well if not... Um... Ummmm.... Okay moving on, Gareth Pugh's(GOD's) spring 2012 collection is like sex. Sometimes it causes diseases, but it's fun up until that point! And continuing with that sex analogy this collection screams desperate hoe. The hoe being me, and the men who I do nasty things to are the clothes. (I HOPE GP, oh yeah abbreviating, NEVER READS THIS!)
Maybe it's not as dramatic before, (unless you count the fact that these girls strutted their stuff with their FREAKING boob's and vagina's showing, under the leather rib working of course) but it's still quentisetial Gareth Pugh. His girl, a glamazon with a dark warrior edge always inspires, sometimes confuses, but without fail provides a constant source of inspiration. Gotta be honest, I have a little man boner for Gareth Pugh and his clothes. ESSPECIALLY HIS SHOES! OH GOD THESE SEXY SHOES!

If it wasn't for my non-existent source of income I would without a doubt buy these sex mongers. My feet would be having serious toe gasms if I wore them.
And lastly, for the girl (and me) who can't wear this outfit,

due to the nudity 'issue' I think the best bet would be to combine, and bear with me a black button down. The contrast between the super charged Beyonce warrior and the masculinity of a simple button down would be striking! Or ugly... Who knows!
Goodnight interwebz.

Guess Where I've Been

Besides the obvious, (IN FRONT OF THE TV WATCHING RACHEL ZOE, DUH!) I spent last weekend frolicking in the land of the fashionable, I.e FASHION FUCKING WEEK! OH MY GOD! but no really, the style outsider, in true outsider fashion decided that at fourteen, an old age for a fashionista, that it was time for fashion week. So two years later, and four seasons in I can say that fashion just keeps on getting... Chifonier?
The fashion shows I attended, (Jill Stuart, HONOR which really should be renamed to OHMYGODWHATISTHISSEXYNESSJESUS, and ADAM, which also should be renamed to ADAM LIPPES LET ME HAVE YOUR BABIES, and many more) were filled with chiffon, silk, pastels, and blown up granny florals that were reminiscent of an axe-murdering grandmother. Sexy. I love me some wrinkly ladie boners. And this was only at the tents!
Over in the land of Milk Studios the worlds youth bumped rears with fashion and it really shows. I want you to imagine neons, LOTS OF NEONS, in fact the number of neons present for the modern women is equal to the amount of scarves I have. Hint: the number is above 50 and below 52
And that was just New York!

See how much I love you guys! I post ugly photos of me just for you, my lovely non-existent reader. taken by ouch magazine.

Having A Lim Moment at 1:35

So when insomnia hits you at1:40 in the morning there are many things you can do. Some people enjoy writing, others enjoy reading, I enjoy During these random and often annoying bouts of insomnia I tend to surf the collections page for designers who I haven't heard of. For example a few nights ago I found out about Dsquared and that was a moment to be sure.
Tonight though I re-discovered 3.1 Philp Lim. Lets just say i'm having a serious Lim moment right now. (The last ten words out of my mouth have been, and I qoute "OMG. THIS. IS. BANNAS. I. AM. HAVING. A. LIM. HEARTATACK.)
It started out simply; I clicked on the link and thought, "oh that's nice. Chic miniamlsim... WAIT, WAIT WHAT IS THAT THING HE IS DOING WITH THE LEATHER! I CAN'T EVEN!" And from there I was clicking away. I can't describe the feelings I was having, but I can paint a picture of my face.

Okay I promise to stop making Rachel Zoe references!
But anyway just look at these:

To be honest I feel bad about picking just a few photos from his entire work. To be honest each piece, even if sometimes they seem a little confused and over worked are beautiful. I recommend to anyone reading this please click this link and spend a little time. He's the best.

Can We Talk About Cool?

"You came into my heart
So tenderly
With a burning love
That stings like a bee"-The Supremes

Okay now that I have your attention can we talk about cool? If cool was to be defined as a physical object, I think it would find itself nicely packaged in a Christopher Kane collection. I mean maybe its my inner geeky self, (one who secretly looks at the stars and thinks of deep intellectual thoughts such as, "IS THERE LIFE OUT THERE?" or "WILL WE ONE DAY BE LOOKING BACK AT THE STARS... ON A DIFFERENT PLANET") or maybe it 's the fact that I have always had a deep and unbinding crush on anyone named Christopher but in this humble sixteen year old opnion, christopher kane is nothing less then the coolest dude ever.
First look at that asteriod galazy printed resort collection he did a little while back.

Ignoring the drag queen inspired, Carrie Bradshaw wearing shoes this resort collection was fantastic. Period. In the words of the holly style god Rachel Zoe, "I DIE!" Like, I want to think of intelligent witty comments about the beauty of these clothes but all I can think of is like. So... LIKE LIKE LIKE LIKE LIKE LOVE LIKE LIKE LIKE. God I sound like a pre-pubescent school girl waiting excitedly to get an autograph from J baby, or as he's known more widely Justin Bieber....

I need sleep... Goodnight interwebs. Keep yourself busy; stay away from naughty things!
