giant post of wonderfulness and color

In school I did a semester-long project on Roberto Cavalli (it was designing a show 'experience' through the Castel Sant D'Angelo in Rome - random! but i should post images from it - very fun.) Anyway, I- I who do not usually like pattern or lots of color- love everything about him. Honestly, I'm not sure how much of his clothes I would actually want to wear...but I love to look at them. Its just so...much - in a very awesome, gorgeous, loud way.
Enough rambling- I was excited to see the inside of his new home in Italy outside Florence. Its just him. The colors, the patterns, the absolute sexiness of it all. Article by NYTimes via Fashion Copious.
Next up - one of my favorite editorials I've seen in a long time (and its six years old!) Alice in Wonderland with model Natalia Vodiovana in Vogue December 2003, photographed by Annie Liebowitz. via Wet Behind the Ears.
I'm in love. And Karl is there.
And last - on a little shopping trip in Iowa City in the Spring, I picked up this dress - and promised at outfit post. voila...

I love that dress! I wish I could pull off ruffles. I saw a cute dress in a boutique today, but I ended up just looking like a clown.

Oh, and I love your bangs too!
