Twenty8Twelve, Looking Good

Twenty8Twelve by Sienna Miller.  Two words: Feminine and Frilly.  It feels very Gossip Girl to me, it's only missing the headbands.  I love the Black, White, Beige, and Navy color combination.  Very neutral, but chic.  The high waisted shorts are classic.  The high waisted skinny jeans would look amazing with a fitted tank or some sheer and billowy top.  The beige dress would look stunning with black patent heels, red lips, and doe eyes.  The leather jacket, though it's very expensive, will be great for fall.  I know, it's a little early, but it is an amazing fitted leather jacket.  The beige high waisted skirt is a great day to night piece.  Pair it with heels or flats.  Tuck in a deep v-neck tee or a black chiffon blouse.  The embroidered white cotton top can be paired with black skinny jeans for night or shorts during the day, you might be a little hot though.  The beige tank looks cute as worn on the model, with denim shorts, but it could be worn a million other ways too.  All pieces here are basic, but essential to ones wardrobe.  And even though they may be expensive, they will last a while.

Hey, Betsey!

You've got a copy cat!  Forever 21's knock is um, what's the word? terrible.

Song of The Day

Rude Boy Don't Cry- Bedouin Soundclash
Just as described on their myspace, street-reggae clash meets soul


Chanel, I love you.  The picture below is the Chanel Resort 09 Runway Show, nobody is as brilliant as Karl... only him.


Mary Kate

I'm aware that this is somewhat old, but I liked it.  Pictures from nylon magazine from this photo shoot are taped onto my inspiration wall right now (they have been for a while). :)

Song of The Day

Tegan and Sara- Nineteen



Winehouse, the icon.  Her extremely black wing-tipped (doe) eyes and HUGE hair makes her unique.  She has her own sense of style and can't be compared to anyone but herself.  
Want her look:
Ed Hardy Skull Sword Scarf [usually I HATE this brand, but I feel that it really works here]
Love Bird Earrings
Sheer Satin Blouse

She's always...adorable.  It's that easy throw-on, casual but cute style.  Effortless fashion.
To get this look:

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes

Aldo is looking pretty good right now, check these out.  Feminine and stylish.  Flirty and Chic.


dior ready to wear

Effortlessly chic.  I absolutely love the 2nd from the left.  It's just beautiful.  It's so simple, but so dior.  The basic black and white combination is completed with the whimsical hat and suspenders.  I love it.  I'm sure that I'll be wearing this look pretty soon, but with shorts instead of pants.
On a Side Note:  There's Ali Michael in the leopard printed dress.  In my opinion, she looks great.  The perfect model weight & size.

dior haute couture

this defines haute couture.

chanel resort 09

Stunning.  I love the color pallet.  The line is very in-the-now.  Chanel is always right on target.  My personal favorite is Taryn Davidson's look.


the fragrance is absolutely delicious.


what are they wearing?

What are they wearing? The look for less.

Lauren Conrad: dress
Rachel Bilson: 3/4 sleeve , jeans, bag, scarf
Hilary Duff: sweatshirt, scarf, jeans

Sex and The City

wayyyyyyy too excited.

Doc Martens

What do you think of DM's? They are prettyugly, but I guess there's a way to make them fashionable. They are a trend, but I feel that they can't be worn until fall, so why are they so popular right now?


Could alexander mcqueen spring 08 get any cooler?
The versatality of these designs actually works, somehow he made it cohesive. Genius.

Barneys: Rag & Bone

A Rag & Bone and Barneys New York Production, love the edge to it.



I love this ad for prada (found in Elle magazine). Not only is it eye-catching, but it's inspiring. The mixture of the colors and prints works fabulously and the sunglasses are stunning. Fashion is art.


"Dreams do come true, so dream big." -Jason Castro



Yes, forever 21 is copying urban! my proof (above).
They're doing it for a lot less, too.

Bohemian Chic II


luella's spring runway

It was geek-chic to a tee.  The use of the liberty of london print was impeccable and the colors were mastered.  Extremely cohesive.
And then, of course, how could I leave you guys out?  There's the look for less.

Highwaisted Anyone?

Huge trend right now--the high waist.  Tuck a blouse or woven top into your high-waisted denim and put on a pair of heels. Or wear with open toe flats, and tuck in a tank.  Throw on a few bangles or some statement jewelry and you'll look great.

DIY Studded Denim

What you'll need:
24 Gromets
denim skirt, shorts, jeans
a sharpie marker

Step 1: Separate gromets into 4 groups (7, 7, 5, 5)
Step 2: Space out gromets on to your denim pockets and choose a design that works.
Step 3: Push a gromet through the fabric (make sure that all 8 backs are through.)
Step 4: Take a closed sharpie marker and while holding one side of the gromet through the denim, push the sharpie onto the backs until they bend down toward the center of the gromet. This keeps the gromet secure on the fabric.
Step 5: Repeat for all gromets.
