i think i have three styles that are in heavy rotation right now...

bohemian gypsy-late 70's YSL...righ colours,purple/burgundy/orange/rust, suede, tassles, fringe,gold/brass hardware, boots...culottes,full skirts, paisley print, chiffon

urban warrior-androgynous...ann demeulemeester, cdg, motorcycle boots, straps hanging, leather, black/white/olive/grey...cropped cargos...more for winter

pirate-ruffled minis, vests, flat sandals, leather cuffs, raw edges, ruffled shirts, los belts, cropped pants-marni

for fall though i'm starting to feel something else-there is a story in sept vogue called about a boy...i cannot tell you how much i relate to that story...all the vests and ties and scarves and tweed trousers-KNICKERS!!! with boots...oh lord...i'm going to have to buy a whole new set of clothes now for that look...

it doesn't seem to end...

ignoring the troll usually works best...they get bored if there is no one to fight with since they feed off anger..they're the ones who lose...going through life full of anger and hate...

i used to be like that but i flutter between classic and boho but usually a mixture of both. I wear loads of classic pieces as a base then team them with boho accesories-griecan/roman belts, leather bags, uggs, gilet, slouch boots, cowboy boots, thong sandals, etc. It works for me.

Halleluiah!
What have you girls got to do? You can't prove that i am either a troll or a Softee, so you'd better shut up! Smart choice! I'll give you that...

And softgrey... regarding your favourite styles of clothing I only got one thing to say... --
pirate - urban warrior - gypsy... this does sound schizophrenic...

For fall I'm feeling like adding some tailored dandy inspired pieces to my wardrobe. Of course I'll mix them up with my jeans and tees and stuff to make it youthful, but I'm feeling a bit more mature and elegant with my style lately.

And I know what you mean grey, just when you think you've pin-pointed your style you see or feel something new and just have to add it into the mix.

exactly...you described it perrfectly spike...

maybe i should re-organize my closet by style instead of by separates?...what do you guys think?...

with a sepearate area for basics that go across the board...i think it would be easier to get dressed that way...

hmmm....

That actually sounds like a really good idea.

I definitely agree with you as well Spike. For fall I am thinking very "dandy" but with a dirty edge. (think of the chimney sweeps in the Galliano mens show) I have issues with things looking too clean and matchy. I will be wearing rich colours and textures, but will probably have a lot of frayed edges in there somehow.

By the way, if you have the dough I would definitely suggest checking out McQueen's collection. It is very well tailored, and should be sort of a collector's item (being a first men's collection after a break).

Oh I know, I wish I could afford some of the McQueen pieces. There was actually an edit and article about his men's line in the new GQ.

Really? Which issue? I haven't looked at US GQ in years. Maybe I'll take a pick just to compare what they show against what's in stores.

I gotta say SG, I love it when women have a variaty of styles to fit their mood. It really is one of my favorite things about women that dig fashion and dressing.
ALways loved when my girlfriends did that! Viva le Schizochic!!!
