Kate did something right

No it's not her new line for Topshop, even though I think that what I've seen so far is great- I'll leave it to the other bloggers to tell you about that. I know that it is really old news but I just wanted to post this portrait of Kate Moss that was taken for the National Portrait Gallery. So I do think that she's pretty in a way but I'm still not a big fan of her dating Pete Doherty and partying like 24/7 when she has a daughter at home. Not to mention the cocaine incident...but I'm not even going to get into that. So bottom line, she's not in my good graces at the moment but I do really like these photos of her. What do you guys think.






My ideal summer outfit:


See by Chloé Bib Front Shirt $240
I know pretty expensive but isn't is so cute? I won't be purchasing it but you can DIY, but here's an alternative.


Damsel Sheer Baseball Henley $24


Citizens of Humanity Electric Guitar Mini Skirt $132


Rope Belt at Urban Outfitters $24


Tory Burch Silver Flats $195

Target Chic





So I went to Target the other day with a few of my friends and I was so excited to see that Rafé has done a handbag line for Target. those bags were so cute! I want them all... I have a few of his nice handbags that I inherited from my mom and I was comparing them last night- the ones from Target are made so nicely, I know, not nearly as nice as his line but he paid such good attention to detail in these bags (i.e. plenty of interior pouches and zipper compartments). So being a complete handbag fanatic I had to make a post about it! Here are some cute ones...


Zip Duffel Hobo $49.99


Embroidered Straw Clutch $29.99
And the great thing about this is that the little beaded strap is also removable so you can wear it as a petite shoulder bag or a clutch...whichever you choose. Also it has a really cool way of opening up- sorry to leave you guys hanging but I couldn't really describe it.


Printed Straw Basket Bag $39.99



Just some cute other things...well it actually kind of turned into a really casual outfit combination but whatever.


Linen Shirt Tunic by Splendid $144


Washed linen cuffed short by Jcrew $58
I just bought a pair of these- they are so comfortable! They are made out of a really great fabric and come in a lot of other colors. They also have that really cute little bow on the front!


Hemp flip flops by Rainbow Sandals $35
Ok so maybe not so fabulous shoes but I love these flip flops! The more you wear them, the more comfortable they become! And if you're not into hemp (I'm not really either but this is the only picture I could find online) they make them in suede and leather, both of which are equally as comfortable.

however if you're not into the flip flops. here is another pair of shoes i thought would look cute.

Encinitas Cross Skimmer $38

not a part of the outfit but I really like this as a beach cover up or maybe dressed up under a cute cardigan.

Striped Dress by C&C California $84

Not so much...

So I was in a store the other day, just browsing through the shoe section and I saw these Stuart Weitzman shoes. Hmm...how do I put this delicately? He kind of killed the whole PVC thing for me, even though I wasn't a big fan in the first place because having someone (or everyone) be able to see right through your handbag or whatever other accessories/attire you may be wearing has just never exactly appealed to me. But anyway back to the point... do you guys really think that he hit a homerun with these shoes? I'm just having some serious issues believing that they're going to be the next big thing.

Sorry if they're hard to see...it's a little difficult to find a good representation when the whole thing is pretty much clear. It kind of blends in pretty well don't you think?



Stuart Weitzman Lucite Wedges $298

Not to mention that they are really overpriced...$300 for a bunch of see-through plastic??


So I'm really sorry if any one of you guys really like these shoes because I am like totally dissing them...

Help our prayers be with them

Let's all pray for the 32 students killed and dozens injured at Virginia Tech early this morning. We should keep them as well as their families in our hearts and minds in the days to come.

How long is the waiting list?

Ok so I made this post like forever ago when the April issue of Teen Vogue (really liked that article on Willa Holland by the way, I'm in the process of making a post about her so check back in soon) came out but for some reason or another I never got to publish it...?

So simply, I am completely in love with this clutch from Nine West.



Nine West Clutch $85

Perfect scenario:
1. looks really expensive but is $85
2. was inspired by Marc Jacobs new collection
3. very chic

Only downside? It's out in May and from what I hear, there's a major waiting list.


Marc Jacobs Bag...the price?... I'd rather not say




See the resemblance?





So I would hate to create a new post for this but the other day I was procrastinating (just as usual...) and I saw this really funny and cool picture of Gemma Ward backstage somewhere. Even though everyone knows about her- I still think she is absolutely stunning and is my favorite model.





Again, a total random thing but I think that this little brooch from Marc by Marc Jacobs is quite nice...I'm always looking for something cute to spice up my boring sweaters and jackets...

Punky Moon Brooch by Marc by Marc Jacobs $88










They broke up??? I can't believe it! So sad- and I really liked Kate Middleton. So classy and elegant...not to mention she is absolutely gorgeous. But hey, maybe they're just faking it or something...hopefully :-)

Shopaholic's Summer Shopping List

The title pretty much says it all...


Flap handbag by Gerard Darel about $270
My favorite new handbag! I love these things, they are roomy and are slouchy (I tried to find a picture that demonstrated this but couldn't). Adorable! (P.S. Gerard Darel is a French designer and his bags are a lot more expensive over here in the states so I suggest that you try buying them off of a legit French website becaue once you convert euro to dollar, you'll save quite a bit of money. Take this from someone who learned their lesson.)


Outsiders Wayfarer Sunglasses by Ray-Ban $100
I've really been meaning to pick up a pair of these classics.


Reva Ballerina Flat by Tory Burch $195
These are so cute and comfortable! Not to mention they come in the prettiest colors ever! (P.S. these shoes are like the best sellers for spring and I barely got my hands on my pair but if you're interested, order them off of www.toryburch.com instead of a department stores websites because of their long long long waiting lists)


Beach Mini Skirt by Sanctuary $98
Nothing exciting, just a cute mini


Shirt Dress with Rosette Slip by Rebecca Taylor $415
Probably not going to buy this one (out of my budget) but I am definitley going to be on the lookout for something similar. I love the slip underneath with the flowers (or rosettes or whatever they call them now)


Navajo Thong by Jack Rogers $85
I seriously live my life in these shoes. I have like 4 pairs and the more I wear them, the more comfortable they become. Not to mention they come in about 15 colors and shades!


Teardrop Gem Necklace by Gorjana $105
This necklace is just so simple and cute!


Small Shoulder Buckle Bag exclusively at Urban Outfitters $28
Cute, small and affordable bag for going out at night


Waldo String Bikini by Ella Moss $106
Here bikinis are as cute as her clothes! (as if they could get any cuter)


Surf Spray by Bumble and Bumble $28
Perfect for those natural looking curls and/or waves that you always have at the beach but can never achieve at home. A favorite of Molly Sims.


Wire Wrap Hoop Earrings by Gara Danielle $92
Love these because you can wear them with so many colors!


Low V Empire Waist Dress by Splendid $122
I love the ruching under the bust and besides, you can never go wrong with Splendid.


Croquet Patchwork Madras Short by Jcrew $60
Perfect for just about anything. I just picked out one pair from jcrew because I didn't want it to be like overload but check out their website because they have some really cute stuff this season. Very very nice


Leather Jazz Shoe by Jeffrey Campbell $88
I really like the style of these shoes. I see Kirsten Dunst and Kate Bosworth wearing similar sytles all the time.

Channeling Larry King

So I was just randomly looking online yesterday and I found this outfit that (weirdly) reminded me of Larry King and his suspenders...I'm not sure if this is some revived trend (i.e. leggings) but I'm really into it


Suspender Shorts by Lauren Moffatt $277


Larry King


I just thought that I would include this cute little bag in here. In addition to red, it also comes in black and white.

Bonnie Bag by Kooba $295



Finally, Timbaland's new album "Shock Wave" is out and I'm usually not a big fan of rap music but one song on it is really good. It's called "Give it to me" and it features Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake. Amazing combination.
