In My White Tee

I'm fascinated with the versatility of a plain white shirt. The can literally be, anything you need them too; fitting perfectly into any and every occasion. This is how I play with a white shirt. Little scandalous, daring? Maybe. Plenty of fun? Yes!

Much has been made over Taylor Momsen's barely there bottoms, by tweeters, and gossip sites alike. 
Here's my take:
Though she's just sixteen, and I'm sure she got into a fair amount of parental trouble for her looks...I think she looks great!!!!!
I've long been an arbiter of her personal style and attitude. Fashion pushes boundaries! And that's exactly what she's doing! I just pray this doesn't turn into an unfortunate "young Hollywood" gone crazy" situation. So my advice is to keep it, but keep your life tame and sane girl!

Where are they now: Eloise

Every year, at Christmas time, my sister and I watch Eloise at Christmastime. It's become a holiday favorite for us. Even still, I never wondered what happened to the little actress that played Eloise. The other day, watching the Teen Choice Awards, I saw this beautiful actress named Sofia, and it turned out to be none other than Eloise herself. So I dedicated a set to her! Here it is!

My Boy Lollipop!

"The only two choices for women; witch and sexy kitten." - Miranda Hobbes (Sex in the City Movie)

- Indeed you said a mouthful Miranda! And if I have my choice, I go the way of sexy kitten. Because what's wrong with a playful, sexy women, a la Claudia Schiffer or Brigitte Bardot? Nothing! Thats what!


I like to be in America, O.K. by me in America Ev'rything free in America, For a small fee in America

Recently, I've noticed a decline in the caliber of photographers in American fashion magazines. Not just in the artist them-selves, but in their work. Gone are the days of innovative, envelope-pushing photography. Where have the Steven Miesels and Richard Avedon's of the industry gone? The only magazine that still pays homage to the days of serious photography is Vanity Fair. And God Bless them for it!

Vanity Fair this is for inspiring me!

Well It's a Soft Shock, To Your Soft Side, Summer Moon

It's back to school time lovelies! Just two days ago, my local Wal-Mart began showing tell-tale signs of Autumn's silent approach. As if that weren't enough, everyone who's anyone has debuted their pre-fall collection. I don't know about you, but it's invigorating! I've always loved fall shopping, something about this season represents a new start, a challenge, a rebirth of self(that almost always begins with a rebirth of wardrobe.)
So, here's my BTS list:

Black Leather Jacket
Burgundy Leather Boots(Wedges) - Because burgundy goes with both black and brown
Two Button Down Shirts - One plaid, one Country Club blue
Dark Wash Skinny Jeans - from Forever 21

- I'll be sure to do a review of the fall collections soon!
As always enjoy!

And I Just Can't Get Enough, I Just Can't Get Enough

Chicks with attitude of always held a special place in my heart. From the very first scene in 10 Things I Hate About You, to Hollywood's new bad girl, Kristen Stewart. But one of my all time favorite disaffected youth is the Queen of Rock n' Roll, Joan Jett. Her days in the Runaways made for some scandalous performances and the beginning of a career, millions both love and admire. For my inner bad girl...

Lord, I'm tired of the Way That I Am, In Your Love I Want To Live Instead

This set just impresses me visually. I love the pink, lavender, and red. It's an interesting mish-mash of colors! 
To me it feels like a fashion party! We've got Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, Mary-Kate Olsen, and skinny, skinny models! Enjoy!

I first noticed Alexander Wang's potential as an influential designer, when he'd yet perfected his casual decadence. His aesthetic was still rough around the edges, but his clothes breathed an energy that stood to help invigorate the fashion industry. Years past and collections later, Alexander Wang has built a name for him-self with celebrities and editors and fashion youth alike. At the time, there's nothing like his uncomplicated design, neutral colors, and sumptuous fabrics. Plus, he's just a whole lotta fun!

- Enjoy!

ACNE: Newest Brand To Love!

ACNE: The company best known for their denim is debuting their first ready-to-wear collection and it's so chic it hurts. I was sold the moment I saw that brown and black leather biker jacket. Its simple, yet distinctive; with pieces that could easily last you from now until eternity, and they'll be just as painfully stylish in the year 2080 as they are now.

I hope you enjoy! The availability is below: 

Opening Ceremony: Opens August 8th, New York City.

The Men Have It!: 2009 CFDA Awards

Usually, when I review an event, I find my-self taken by all the beautiful outfits the fabulous women in attendance have concocted; fascinated by shoes, bags, jewels, and furs. That preoccupation often leaves the men, flying staggeringly below the radar. But this year's CFDA event proved, once again, that there is a first time for everything. 

While I can't begin to understand the pressure that dressing for CFDA awards brings, I was colossally disappointed with the frocks, New York's finest dawned. I was however, delighted to find that the gentlemen pulled up the slack. They were dapper, quirky, tailored, and even amusing! So much so, that they swept my favorites list, crushing the opposite sex's competition. 

Congratulations men! To my ladies: There's always next year.

"Look at her Prettier then Halle and 
Thicker than Janet" - Hurricane Chris

Usually when I name a set, the 
title reflects whichever lyrics 
are on repeat in the ipod 
that is my mind. 
The words and set don't 
typically correlate. 
But Hurricane Chris' song 
"Halle Berry" seemed more than 
appropriate for this homage to 
Marilyn Monroe and 
Scarlett Johnansson. 
It's sexy, uniquely feminine, 
and a little dangerous.
I hope you enjoy!

As a general rule, I'm anti-Lindsay Lohan. There's a falsity about her that tugs on my ever lasting nerves. Also, she never manages to hit the nail on the head in her fashion. Actually she never manages to hit the nail at all. Her style is more akin to banging holes in the wall. But since there are exceptions to every rule....

This one's for you Lindsay.
