I first became interested in Alexander Wang when I was flipping through the February 2009 issue of ELLE Magazine. Little did I know that I had actually been viewing and enjoying Wang’s work for quite some time, first being exposed to his work by Teen Vouge and Erin Wasson. But in this issue of ELLE, I became absolutely in crazed with his shoes. They were so black with chunky details. My mother said they were “hideous!” but I would give my pinky to wear them, something my father said was “absolutely ridiculous to say.” But, I began viewing his runway shows and my opinion of him as a designer are very positive. He mixes a lot of feminine pieces with leathers and lace. A lot of dark with light. Incredible. I was on the Forever21.com website in March and I saw these fringe boots. My heart litterally skipped a beat because they looked just like the Alexander Wang boots I had seen in ELLE. However, to my dismay Forever21 weren’t carrying my size (I’m a size 10, happens SO often!!!) but I still think I should show you the similiarities between the two.
Can you spot which one is from Alexander Wang? …

Then there’s this jacket which I saw on Rihanna last month. I googled the jacket SO many times but I couldn’t find out who made it – Well today, I stumbled upon the jacket on Polyvore and ofcourse, Mr. Wang was the genious behind it and I just really want to make a DIY project out of this jacket for the fall. What do you think? Could you make this jacket yourself?
