Handbags are taking the stage right now, with a fresh take of the clutch at the forefront. I love how such an impractical piece is being expanded upon. With the color blocking or translucent trends of spring, the oversize clutch has the ability to tie together any outfit in the coming season.

I'm starting to play with my new American Apparel Maxi Skirt. I've really liked the maxi trend lately, so I think it will prove to be a good piece with alot of versitility - we shall see!

Dior Uproar

The House of Dior is built upon the values of Monsieur Christian Dior - to "not only to make his clients – indeed all women – more beautiful, but also to make them happy, to help them dream...to bring out the best in all people."
John Galliano's mistakes this past week are a disappointment to the brand, and all those who admire his amazing work. There is no one with such unique and boundless ability with clothing and creativity, but racism is unexusable. I in no way excuse his actions, but I do believe in second chances if he can handle the situation correctly. The beauty of his Fall RTW 2011 Collection reinforces the outright tragedy if this was truly Galliano's final line for Dior. christian-dior-rtw-fw-2011-runway-001_144906715589christian-dior-rtw-fw-2011-runway-026_144924530362

Watching Vogue

Being sick has got me watching alot of movies lately, so of course re-watching The September Issue was an immediate must. Whenever I do watch it, I am reminded of how much I love fashion. Anna Wintour is the ultimate fashion power - she is smart, influencial and so good at what she does, the "pope" of this religion that is fashion. She inspires me.


"I think what i often see it that people are frightened about fashion. Because it scares them or make them feel insecure they just put it down. On the whole people that may say, the mean things about our world I think that's usually because they feel, in some ways, excluded or, you know, not a part of 'the cool group' so as a result they just mock it.
Just because you like to put on a beautiful Carolina Herrera dress or a pair of J Brand blue jeans instead of something basic from K-Mart it doesn't mean that you're a dumb person.
There is something about fashion that can make people really nervous."

NYFW: Street Style

New York's Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear has ended, and did not disappoint. There is so much to talk about, but first off, I must salute the amazing street style that all the lucky attendees displayed. Here are some favorites.

Maxxed Out

Today I decided my new maxi skirt would make its debut. Paired with a little red, heeled lace ups and an elfy-looking bun I just called it a day.

Couture Spring 2011

Couture collections are so inspirational and are a vessel for such strong messages by designers. I'm loving Chanel's colors, Dior's vintage vibes, and the delicacy of Valentino.

Golden Globes

Despite the bad jokes and awkward presenters, last nights Golden Globes award show did showcase some shining stars. My favorites included Emma Stone, in an impeccibly simple Calvin Klein, Angelina Jolie, in a chic Versace, and Anne Hathaway in a shimmering Giorgio Armani Privé, which all showcased the popular high-neck and open back.

Celine Pre-Fall 2011

I am fascinated with this collection and all the contrasts that it highlights and pulls together into a cohesive collection. I love the differences color block, knit and plaid as well as the drastic textural range of the fabrics. Oh how I would just love to cuddle up in the brilliant white sweater with a latte right now..

Go check out the entire collection here.

Today I recieved some amazing news - I have been accepted to San Francisco State University, my number one choice for college next year. I am thrilled that my dreams are coming true, and I cannot wait to move to SF and study Fashion Merchandising this fall. I have an exciting new life ahead of me!!


Flair for Flare

There are a variety of things about the Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2011 collection that I adore, but the flare pants are absolute genius. I was sure that after fifth grade I would never touch a flare pant again, but instead, I am mesmerized at the long lines and interesting silhouettes that these create. I now am dying to venture out of the skinny jean/legging fit and try a pant like this, but who could make a pair as great as these?

Black on Black

It has been a chilly first day back to school after winter break. I find black to be a very trusty color; all my favorite and warmest pieces are in black, a timeless and versitile neutral. And by varying the textures (leather I love you) and styles, an all black outfit can be sleek and chic with little effort at all. All the black in my closet makes for a good fall back when my brain is still foggy at 6 in the morning..

Two thousand eleven

Although it has only just begun, 2011 promises to incredibly exciting, as I am graduating high school and (hopefully) going away to college! My biggest resolution for this year is to take more pictures, especially outfits, and figure out Flickr. I hope you all had a fun and safe New Year's celebration and good things for the coming year. Good luck on your resolutions! xo
