Alexander McQueen at The Met

On May 4 the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art will be unveiling its "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" exhibit to the public. I have not been to NYC in a while, and it has definitely been too long since I've been to the Met so I'm hoping I will be able to see this!

The collection will be broken up into five separate showcases, each with recurring themes; "The Savage Mind," "Romantic Gothic," "Romantic Nationalism," Romantic Exoticism," and "Romantic Primitivism." I'm so excited!

Inspired by the Dutch word for "to keep," BHLDN is the new extension of Anthropologie, focusing on bridal and special occasion attire and accessories. BHLDN was freshly launched on Valentine's day, and upon opening my email invite I was lusting over almost everything. The online shop boasts an intimate but stunning collection of unique, vintage-inspired wedding gowns, bridesmaid and special occasion dresses, hair adornments, footwear, lingerie, jewelry and other accessories.

With my impending wedding, this is the first of probably many bridal-themed posts. So if you are a fellow bride-to-be, have been planning your wedding since childhood or just love beautiful, inspirational pieces, I don't think you will mind ♥

Alexander Wang FW11

"We're almost poking fun at decadence and luxury." - Alexander Wang

There's no surprise that recent GQ/CFDA menswear award winner & New York fashion darling Alexander Wang was a favorite at New York Fashion Week. The proof is in the details.

I personally loved the collection- until the end of the show with strips of fabric all over the place. Just not my cup of tea. Everything else was gorgeous though, as I knew it would be.
What did you guys think?

Miu Miu Spring 2011

I've become quite accustomed to my often daily email updates from; these emails have quickly become my source for inspiration to accompany my morning coffee. So when Net-A-Porter tells me "it's time to sweeten up my look with Miu Miu" you can be damn sure I am going to listen!

Clicking on the link in the email, I'm instantly drawn to the soft blush pinks (my favorite color at the moment), the dusty blues, neutral taupes, and touches of grey; all perfect for Spring. What I love about Miu Miu is that it never fails to be lady-like, with structured satchels and suede peep-toe pumps, and adding almost-edgy details like animal prints and perforations. This season leopard print accessories continue to crop up in multiple collections, and I love that they are so versatile that they pass as a neutral.

Peter Som FW11

The shoes. That is all that needs to be said. I need some electric, Day-glo orange and green in my life.

Oh and perhaps some metallic blue trousers. Or a deep green maxi dress with a plunging neckline. OR a splatter print dress à la Jackson Pollack. You know, take your pick.

I realized I haven't written a blog post in like 6 months and that you guys have probably forgotten about me. In the time since I've blogged last I've graduated from college with a Bachelor's in Fashion Merchandising, started excessively baking like a crazed housewife, but most importantly I've gotten engaged!

So now that I am done with school and currently unemployed/job searching, I have nothing much to do except look at bridal websites and magazines and make sure my dream wedding day becomes a reality. But I also realized how much I missed blogging after taking a long, LONG break from it.

When I left you guys last August I just wasn't feeling up to fashion blogs. I was feeling uninspired, unmotivated, and out of ideas. I haven't even looked at a fashion blog since then. But then something inside me reared its creative head and I decided to not only sit on my ass but sit on my ass and take up blogging again. I decided Deranged needed a facelift- a new design, new colors, new direction.

So for all my readers that are still subscribed to this now-non-defunct blog, thanks for staying. I promise to be a much more diligent blogger this time :)
