behold a marvel in the dark

Yesterday i was meant to attend a tutorial that started at 2, however i was running late to the class and ended up going to the city to shop instead.
I ended up purchasing another pair of naughty monkey boots that were on special for $10. I previously bought the exact same pair for the retail price of $30, and could not resist getting another for less than half its price. I purchased a simple mixed chiffon navy blue blouse at paper scissors for only $15, which was rather plain with a huge zip statement at the back which i loved. To add to my make up collection i purchased an inexpensive kabuki brush that had seemed to be the rave these day, just to test it out before i buy a expensive one. I also bought Rimmel eyeshadow trio in the 730 old spice. Both of these products were on special for $2.99, so it was a great bargain.

Recently I've been on a make-up haul, as I'm beginning to experiment with different types and shade of make-up. I've begun to have a love for eyeshadow and wanted something neutral on the base of my lids. I thought the Rimmel eyeshadow would do the trick with its nude shades however i found it not very pigmented. The color did not show up very well once applied to the skin and they seem to all have the same color tone. Though it was unfortunate they were that way, i am still going use them as a base for my brown colors in the future.

I am in love with Gareth Pugh!!!
I've only heard about this wonderful designer through an art website where he was confined to a small room and spent the entire time creating a slashed dress. I've recently decided to take a further look into the design and fashion aesthetic that Gareth uses and must i stress that its absolutely out of this world! He is one of the most innovative and clever designer (coming second from Alexander McQueen of course) that has a unique and extraordinary design aesthetic that stands out of any runway show. The way he uses and manipulates the fabrics creates a complex yet easy on the eye garments through the techniques of perfect construction and execution. Though his collections are classified by many as 'art to fashion' most of the clothing are very wearable and steers away from the notion of the idealistic forms in fashion.
The thing i love most about his design aesthetic, that somewhat inspires me, are his use of colors. I love the contrasts between the whites and black and the use of hints of rich and bold colors such as gold and blue to break away the link between light and dark shades.
Gareth Pugh is a designer added to my influential designers list as he has a bold and daring style that the fashion industry has not seen for years. The way he sells the products and the artistic collaborations behind his work is inspirational to me as a fashion student and as an art lover.
