Great Britain Excursion

I have friends and family going to London this spring and they have been asking me what they should pack. Well, I think this J.Crew ensemble would be perfect for traveling overseas. Can't you just see this young lady perusing the stalls on Portobello Road?

Inspiring Vignette

The Coveteur recently did a photo shoot in Lousie Roe's closet (fashion expert and new face of Hogan). There was one vignette that brought out the green-eyed monster in me. I want, want, want this tuxedo blazer with black and red striped top, and check out those two-toned suede heels. I will definitely have to mimic this combo. Louise, remember that copying is the highest form of flattery.

Cacharel | Color Infusion

C├ędric Charlier's third turn on the runway for Cacharel was dripping in color. The pinks, reds and oranges are what really caught my eye. Gorgeous.

Mama's Got A New Bag...

...in 3-5 days, my new tote is on it's way from J.Crew. Whee.. I am over the moon, I can't wait until I get my new Jericho Tote.

New York | A New Perspective

Daydreaming about New York today. So, I thought I would share a fun video about Manhattan from the Girls With Glasses.

Jellies?

Well, I thought I had taken a firm position on jellies for adults, but now I am waffling on the matter since spotting Marc Jacobs Jelly Sandals. They are cute, but rubber shoes... really?

Yellow Accents

What's The Skinny?

Crooked Clothes

I saw a girl last night wearing an asymmetrical over-sized knit top that exposed one of her shoulders. She was so cute, I had to tell her. Recreate the look and get complimented in a Target check out line.

Nail Project

Another nail post, you can see where my head is at today. I keep staring at the teal blue polish now adorning my nails and want to try something new tonight. Lucky me I found inspiration on Erin Ever After a neutral take on ombre nails. Swooning.

Green With Envy

Bright, happy grass green nail polish, what an uplifting idea! I love the idea of ushering in warm weather with one of these novel lacquers.

Jeanious | Vision In White

Squeals of delight... that's what the sales staff at Bloomingdale's heard when I stumbled upon their display of white jeans. I love, love, love white jeans. I bought my first pair last summer with trepidation, but those fears went away quickly, my Gap Always Skinny white wash jeans not only flatter but go with everything. I am giving it one more month and I am putting them back into my wardrobe rotation.

Refined Beauty

A big thanks to This Is Glamorous for introducing me to the line Raoul. The clothes are so refined and what graceful silhouettes. Exhaling.

Reed Krakoff Jewelry

I created my own jewelry set out of Reed Krakoff's spring line. I think they would go beautifully with the Bernardo boot/sandal I posted earlier today.

Cowboy-Sandal?

Not sure what to call this, it reminds me of a cowboy boot, but clearly it's a sandal. I guess it doesn't matter what you want to call this hybrid shoe, it's still pretty sleek.

Regal Reds

Sophisticated little red dresses just in time for the Royal Wedding. The shape of #3 is inspiring.

Smattering of Sequins

Two J.Crew sweaters with just the right amount of sequins... and stripes!
Spangled Stripe Sweater | Merino Confetti Stripe Sweater

Lil' Sprout

The bright, light green of this Zara top resembles the little buds sprouting on the tree in my front yard. How much do I love this ensemble, especially the Kelly green pumps, let me count.

Print It, It's Perfect!

Cynthia Rowley's star outfit from her summer/spring 2011 print ad is a showstopper. From runway to print it retains its bold take on color.

White Hot

Out of my budget, but I can still look, right? The Alma MM Louis Vuitton bag is white hot. If you have this one, I am beyond jealous.

Lolita Shades

Why not get yourself a pair of 80's Purple "Lolita" heart shaped shades for the summer? If only I were 5 years younger, I would be all over these! Happy Friday!

Hayden-Harnett's Brass Bits

What To Wear This Fall...

Fall is 5 months away and I am already daydreaming about the fashions in my not so distant future. J.Crew's RTW Fall 2011 collection is subdued and sublime. Check out the mint sweater with Bordeaux pants and those red and navy striped leggings... so adorable.

Rodebjer

I stumbled upon the Rodebjer line on Shiny Squirrel and off I went to find out more. Carin Rodebjer, the designer, has gained a reputation for her signature look of contemporary fashion with sharp silhouettes. I am loving the blue silk kimono coat to pieces! 

Boogie Down Tuesday | Ting Tings

The Ting Tings perform an acoustic version of 'Hands'.

Natural Construction

A wood ring? Why not. K. Amato has the right idea with this golden leaf ring. I love how it speaks volumes with simple design.

Shattered Glass

This Cynthia Rowley top, appropriately named "Shattered Front Sequin T-shirt", is gorgeous. I am dreaming of wearing it with some tattered faded jeans and a cacophony of bracelets stacked up to my elbow.
