muses and the a-pod

What's inspiring me this week....

Abstract Art
In my opinion, art is best abstract. Sure, being able to paint an object with detail is a skill; but I think that to be able to paint something without form or point, and to be able to draw people in, that's something entirely different.

Chanel Couture 2006

The beautiful mix of feminine and edgy makes fashion proud.

I love Jessica Stam and Irina Lazareanu and they both looked really good in this show. Except for Jessica's unfortunate closed-eyes picture.

Indian Beaded Shoes

Adds a little sparkle to any outfit. Actually, adds a whole lot of sparkle. Awwwwesome.

On the a-Pod...

Get it? Alison-pod. Say if you're name was Sarah and you happened to have an i-Pod you would call it your s-Pod. Clever, huh?

I have a "Creative Zen Touch" instead of an i-pod so I've lovingly dubbed it my Fraud-Pod.

I listen to Suddenly I See every morning while I put my makeup on and pretend I'm in The Devil Wears Prada. Then I get really depressed when the song ends and I'm not.
