The Fruits Have It!


For the Most part, lately I’ve been feeling spring, thinking about summer, and spring all of the same time. Half of the year, i live in a sub zero temp (called Iowa). I am so tired of this whole winter (i mean seriously how many times have you heard that on Facebook?) I’ve been thinking a lot about the freshness of spring, and what can be more fun than fruit, (personally I’m obsessed with fruit bags) I’ve complied a bunch of fun fruit bags and a few clothing items, for you to to dive into, to get ready for your spring + summer wardrobes (long live spring with its freshness) and (summer with its endless Yard Sales + Estate Sales….). Remember, if your out and about to don’t hesitate to put that fun print or bag in your step.

Comparing “american icons to alex icons”



This weekend has been real, busy for me as i am finishing up school for a bit (before spring break you know that time where people go to Florida, and get crazy on MTV) I cant help my mind goes back to #MFW for those of you who don’t know Jeremy Scott, he was just named the creative director of Moschino . Jeremy is rather known for his larger than life prints, fun type of items, and really “over the top” way of going about things. I’ve heard quite a few people discussing this collection “as tacky, a down grade to Moschino (which has been around since 1983). Few others have classified it as fun, a bit of a fun side with Moschino, thats what Jeremy Scott exudes. This F/W 14 is all about Iconic, icons that we all know and associate with. Especially in my marketing class we talk about Positioning a lot (which watch me make my teacher proud and talk about it, “positioning is creating a image of your product in a consumers mind, different from your competition”). As Americans we generally think of when we think of food, McDonalds, (one of the largest burger fast food joints in america , can we please talk about how much i love their ice cream) and thats what Jeremy Scott did, he took something everyone recognized as that- and ran with it, to make Moschino a brand everyone associates with. He “positioned” iconic labels already into an iconic label. In this last Sunday it was my first Sunday as an what i call an “official midwest blogger” which i felt hey, this is a real thing what, i met with several girls and i felt a bit out of place because my style isn’t like all the others but hey i thought with Jeremy Scott in mind and his recent show id chanel some of my own icons (like perhaps the California raisins or donald duck ring a bell?) …lets have a look shall we.
