I totally have Daria on the brain, since I'm currently in the midst of a marathon. So I figured I would make some icons of my beloved show from my youth. Feel free to use, if you like. :)

Leave me a comment o' randomness; your favorite quote, a funny Gif, what you think of my livejournal, what color shirt you're wearing, and I'll respond with five questions you can answer in your own LJ leaving with them an open invitation for other people to give you comments o' randomness. Then you can ask them questions and before you know it we'll all know everything about everyone.

My Q&A )
xjubesx: (BTVS // Buffy Season 1)
For those who don't know, Mayle is a really awesome fashion label created by former model Jane Male. The line began in 1999 and has worn by countless celebs. The label is known for making garments with a playful, feminine and youthful look.

Sadly, the label closed up shop in 2008. Even after its departure, popularity for Mayle continued to grow in the form of a cult following. I admit, I am a bit obsessed with this beautiful clothing line. It's hard not to catch Mayle fever when you see the exquisite detail that goes into each garment.

I will be updating this post as my closet continues to grow with items by Jane Mayle.

The Tide to Go Pen saves the day, once again! My Mayle blouse arrived today. Right away, I saw two VERY noticeable marks on the blouse. The blouse is silk, and therefore dry clean only.

Before writing the seller, I decided to first see if I could get the stains out. So I made a quick trip to the store and bought one of those tide stain removal pens. I've used it before and it worked Miracles, so I hoped it could do the same for my Mayle blouse.

When I got home, I proceeded to conduct emergency stain removal surgery, being careful not to damage the delicate silk in the process. Sure enough, it worked!

I'm so glad too! This was my first Mayle piece, and I REALLY didn't want to send it back. I like it too much! :D I'm not even gonna contact the seller about the incident. There is no need since I was able to clean the blouse without any problems. :)

Not sure if I've posted this before, or not. So I figured I'd do it anyway. :P

Favorite designers & labels: Rebecca Taylor, Clover Canyon, Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, D&G, Isabel Marant, Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, Mayle, James Perse, Free People, Diane Von Furstenberg, Rag & Bone, J. Crew, Elizabeth & James, Juicy Couture, Valentino, Chloé, Collette Dinnigan, Nanette Lepore, Betsey Johnson, Vince and Jenny Packham.

How would you describe your style?
I would probably have to say classic and feminine. I try to stay clear of fads and gravitate more towards pieces that can be worn for years to come.

Who is your fashion role model?
That would be a tie between Sarah Michelle Gellar and Anna Paquin. They both have excellent taste in fashion and always wear the cutest outfits.

Under the cut at the bottom, I have posted some detailed photos of my Marc Jacobs Pansy Print Dress (which I purchased fully knowing that it is a fake, but it's a damn good looking fake if you ask me lol). Request made by [livejournal.com profile] bells_love

For those who don't know, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Pansy Print Dress is most notably known as one of the outfits Ashley Greene's character Alice Cullen wears in the film Eclipse. The actual dress is VERY hard to come by, which is why many fans of the dress, such as myself, are willing to pay for replicas / fakes.

If you would like to request a post of detailed photos of something from my clothing collection, feel free to comment below and ask. :) I know it can be difficult at times to try and match up these items when searching for them on ebay and such. So I would be happy to help by showing what the specific details of any of my items look like. :)

The flash on the camera makes the dress look a little washed out, but I assure you that the colors of the dress are much richer in person.
