Lets talk about Leo, baby

The logical thing for us to be blogging about right now is pre-fall.  The shows were incredible, as usual, and we will definitely address the wonders of Acne, Chanel, Erdem, Phillip Lim, Chloe and Balenciaga, among many other favourites, in posts to come.

As for now, lets talk about Wildfox.  Wildfox is "A brand based on love and having fun with your best friends! Wildfox is for the dreamers, for the lovers, for skinny dippers, for barefoot explorers, for late night chocolate eaters..." As quoted from their Tumblr (you can check that out here)

Their collections are fabulous.  See "Kids in America SS'13" and  "Star Crossed Lovers Autumn '12"  The latter of course, is our favourite.  The following pictures are sourced from Wildfox; marvel in the beauty that is this collection yourself.

And our most favourite shot..
Honestly, we had to physically refrain from captioning each of these pictures with ridiculous tween white girl cliches like "I can't even" because, well, we really can't deal with how great this collection is.

Romeo and Juliet is my favourite Shakespeare play and of course, one of my favourite films.  Coincidentally (or not so coincidentally , the love of my life Leonardo Dicaprio plays Romeo in Baz Luhrmann's 1997 film adaptation of the play.  So it's safe to say that this collection sent me spiraling down into love for Leo, again.  My 10 year old self resurfaced and honestly, my sanity is on the decline.  The love that we collectively have for Leonardo Dicaprio, both young and 38 years of age (he's still got it) is a joke.  I cannot express how much we're obsessed with him, I just-

Anyway, I hope you gathered that we have a lot of love and respect for both Wildfox and Leo.  Because we're really kind and ridiculously obsessed (we're only doing this for selfish reasons, apologies), lets do this for a moment..

when i find myself in times of trouble mother mary comes to me speaking words of wisdom and showing me this photo
this causes me both physical and emotional pain 
the amount of close ups in this film hurts my heart 
i really don't know where this post is going but regardless i like it because leo
i imagine it must be really annoying to be leo at times because any references to water in particular SINKING causes us mortals to think of jack dawson please forgive us leo it's definitely an innate reaction, reflex etc (plus gif leo)

O K so that's definitely not enough for one post, hope you enjoyed staring at Leo's face and appreciating Wildfox as much as we have.
