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 www.magnums.net
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)

Tagged!

Well it appears I've been tagged by Uber Chic and Sarissa and I don't really know what to do but whatever here it is!

Game Rules:
Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to then report this on their own blog with their 7 things as well as these rules. They then need to tag 7 others and list their names on their blog. They are also asked to leave a comment for each of the tagged, letting them know they have been tagged and to read the blog.

Anyways... getting on to the point of the post.

1. I have an addiction to wearing my cowboy boots. But I don't really feel all that bad about it because I got them before Dukes of Hazzard came out and before Britney post babies started wearing them.

2. I really wish I could pull of black nail polish but unfortunately I can't.

3. I think that 'Little Miss Sunshine' is probably the best movie ever made, I'm not even kidding.

4. I am seriously obsessed with the show '24'. I'm not even kidding, I've bought all the seasons and I've watched them all at least 3 times.

5. I am insanely scared of bugs. Spiders, cockroaches, caterpillars (even if they eventually become butterflies, they still gross me out)... etc.

6. When I was younger, I used to always want to be one of the Disney princesses.

7. If given the chance, I will seriously eat Nutella as if it's my job. (and even as a joke, my friend gave me a collector's edition jar as a Christmas present)

And the fabulous tagees (who I'm tagging) are...
Plain Jayne
Life as a Fashion Addict
Cup Cakes for the Wierd and Wonderful
Lama Drama
Say Yes to Clothes
Très Très Chic
Peace Love and Fashion

So I felt like I had to include some kind of fashiony thing in here so here it goes...

Look familiar?


Rhinestone Bowler Bags at Intuition $95 vs. Marc Jacobs Version


Forever 21 Dress $23 vs. T Bags Dress

Here are a few of my favorite looks from the week,

Eva Mendes


Jessica Alba


Ashely Olsen


Alexis Bledel


Cameron Diaz


Dolce Vita 40's Oxford $98
Now don't these just remind you of some kind of shoe worn in the 1920's or something? The bows are adorable!

Also, I kind of went on a shopping spree at target and I got these really cute shoes as well as a few other things... but my friends thought they were hideous but I think they are pretty cute. Thoughts? I really don't know what to do...


Rafe for Target Sandal $24

Post on the way!

I'm Back!

So I'm back after a veryy relaxing and fun vacation. I had a great time and if you want, here are some absolutely gorgeous pics I took...




Anyways, I'm really busy right now with unpacking and trying to get my stuff together so a post is on the way and I'm working really hard on it but in the meantime, here are a few cool things that I really like! Enjoy!


Bubble Car Coat by Vince $325
I know, I hate to be posting a coat for god sake when it's June but this one is so cute! The silhouette is adorable and I love the big buttons... I want it really badly!


5-Tier Dress by Alice + Olivia $264
Very very very pretty dress, I love the tiers on it because it gives kind of an early 1900's vibe.


AH Jewelry Peacock Earrings $105
These are so much fun! For some reason or another, I really like feathers on my jewelry so I realllyyyy like these. The color is so pretty.


Lightweight Stretch Twill Jacket by Marc by Marc Jacobs $298
Love the big buttons and 3/4 length sleeves and for some reason this jacket kind of reminds me of one that Keira Knightley was wearing in the latest Vogue shoot.


Beige Beads with Fligree Medallion by Drew Necklaces $95
These necklaces are so cool! I saw one in Instyle and I loved it so I went on the website (www.drewnecklaces.com) and I realized that they are made by a sixth grader living up in New York! She goes to flea markets and ebay to look for charms for her necklaces (which are all one of a kind by the way) and then she handmakes them. So unbearably cool and all the necklaces are reallly pretty and unique!


Veronica Slouch Boot by Frye $298
Sorry guys for whoever doesn't like boots but I absolutely adore them. I pretty much wear my Frye boots and cowboy boots (I bought my cowboy boots before Dukes of Hazzard and before Britney post babies) all year round.


P.S. by the way, sorry for my last post because the date on it was July instead of June but for some reason, my computer thought it was July so I think it automatically changed the date. But I've gotten that fixed and I wanted to tell you guy so you don't think I'm going crazy...
