A Vogue Inspired Post

In the back of June Vogue, there were a few featured models (namely Gemma Ward, Hilary Rhonda, Sasha Pivovarova, Raquel Zimmerman, Caroline Trentini and Coca Rocha. But where is Daria??) I really liked the article because they were asked questions about their travels and I thought it was really interesting.

Just a side note, there were a lot of other pictures and everything that were in the article but it would have just taken up wayy to much room in the post. but check them out because they are great pics.

And just to amuse, I thought I'd make one for myself and I included some of my favorite questions. I'm sorry if some of the pictures didn't turn out very well, it's cloudy today and I was trying to take pictures in my room!

While I'm on the subject of travelling, I was browsing through the May issue of Instyle (one of my favorite magazines) with Jennifer Garner on the cover and I came across this cute short article on carry-ons. It pretty much left me drooling over practically all the bags they featured (I mean give me that black Chanel bag). Well here is the article in case you wanted to read it (if you would like to read the text, just click on it and it'll enlarge itself).

My pick for a carry-on.

Summer Serge Day Bag by Boyy $335
I really like this one because a) you can carry it 2 ways: as a tote bag or as a messenger kind of bag across your chest (which is great when you are wheeling a lot of stuff) b) there is a zipper compartment at the bottom if you want to put your books or magazines in and c) looks very chic (navy + white anyone?).

My pick for a suitcase.

Longchamp 22" Wheelie Suitcase $262 at
Longchamp makes such nice handbags and suitcases! I love how all their stuff is made from nylon so it is water resistant it also has a ton of pockets!

Anyways, next topic...

So I was thinking about doing a new thing with posts on the weekend. I was going to feature a clothing item, an accessory of some sorts, a shoe and a picture for each week. Here it is. But I kind of need some feedback about whether you like it or not... (and I obviously added a few more things in each category since I may not be able to post in a while)

Week's clothing obsession:

Express Cotton Shorts $40
This are just so crazy cute! The zebra pattern in hot pink is so adorable and the gold detailing on it makes it even better!

Secrets of Charm Ingrid Dress $270

Rugby French Terry 3/4 Sleeve Top by Splendid $104

Lux Indio Embroidered Skirt $58

Week's accessory addiction:

Moyna Clutch $189

Glenda Shimmer Bangle at Urban Outfitters $16

Fulham Lattice Earrings $64

Week's shoe must have:

Shellys London Fiji Thong $40
Remind you of a similar Marc Jacobs line??

Oh Deer! Santorini Flat $125

Faryl Robin Joy $149

Week's best photo:

ah Daria... haha

Week's Best Dressed:

Jessica Alba

Charlize Theron

Hillary Duff

Nicole Richie

Emily Blunt

Finally, last thing I promise. Does anyone else think that the metallic trend for nails is cool? Because I really can't decide... too star trek or neutral and pretty?

OK, so this is going to be my last post for a while (actually precisely about a month) because I am going away to camp for pretty much all of July. So unfortunately, no posting for me and I'm not going to be able to return comments! Sorry that it's been kind of back to back vacations... but I'm not going to leave you guys with nothing to read so hopefully this monstrous post that will last the whole month. Well I hope so at least because I spent a long time on it! Happy July, talk to you in August! (or rather blog with you)

Izzy said...

OHHH!Do i want thoes shorts. The silver nail polist is darling on one of my friends but i guess it's different on every skin tone.
Have fun at camp!

Moose on the Loose said...

Have fun on your trip! I love the spread that you made. It was really cute. I love your Lacoste trench coat and the cashmere hoodie. I've been thinking about getting one of those from J.Crew in a bright color, beige, or white.
I won't be able to blog for awhile either. I'm on vacation right now in St. Louis. It's just too too busy right now to put together a post. So, I just read and reply to other people's blogs!
Have a good time at camp! Don't get lice! Sing around the campfire and eat smores!

alexgirl said...

ohmygod! what an amazing post. I am practically drooling over here. You have fantastic taste.
As for the nail polish... I can't decide. but it might border on tacky, unless you can pull it off. And by the looks of it, you can pull it off!
Have a fantabulous vacay. I'm so jealous!!! Take pics.

alexgirl said...

ps- your ceiling mounting idea is wicked!! i just might have to try that. THANKS!

The writer of has written a superior article. I got your point and there is nothing to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not disagree with: Hard-ons and the need to take a leak in somebody else?s house are not a good combination I will be back.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
