Spring 2011: 'Mono-chromed' Looks

Miu Miu


Max Mara

Jil Sander


Costume National

Jenni Kayne

Proenza Schouler

A Spring trend I am definitely looking forward is mono-chromatic dressing! 

From Miu Miu's electric red lady-like dress to Jenni Kayne's soft two-toned violet number... I absolutely love these looks. Leading designer Spring collections make this trend look pretty and easy

I especially like this trend because instead of going out and spending loads for these looks, you can save by shopping in your own closet. You can get this mono-chromatic look by layering different shades of the same hue.

Holiday Wishlist

Yay for Holiday wishlists!

Yes, I maybe channeling your grampa... but for this next year I am going to expand my fashion and create a 'new generation' with my style... Sort of my own personal way of mixing old and new. 
(I confess... I also maybe channeling a bit of 'Mad Men'... new season please arrive sooner!! ha)

I absolutely loveeee these colors together! The crash of orange and burnt red warm up my holiday season and can be staple pieces for the rest of the year. Anyone that knows me.. knows I'm a sucker for fedoras... so this classic black felt fedora with a simple bow detail is a key piece for my wardrobe. Top off the look with layered jewelry and comfy men's inspired loafers and I'm set! OH and lets not forget the gorgeous tortoise Michael Kors watch.. I mean really?? That man's a genius! 

1) Wool Back Bow Fedora (Forever 21)
2) Orange 'Cambridge Cable Crewneck Sweater' (J. Crew)
3) Earrings (Alinari Stefano-
4) 'Tortoise Jet Set' Watch (Michael Kors)
5) 'Bi-Stretch Wool Minnie Pant' (J. Crew)
6) Leather Belt (H&M)
7) Loafers (Chloe Sevigny pick for Opening Ceremony- Bass)

Window Shopping: The Bergdorf Goodman Way


A few weeks ago, I was lucky to see these beautiful windows up close in NYC with my parents. If it wasn't for my immense hunger for our dinner reservation, I could very possibly still be there in front of Bergdorf Goodmans! I love how they made me feel as if I was personally invited to step right into their novel and dream. The amount of detail and talent the crew puts into each window is nothing less than remarkable. Its no wonder why hundreds of people come from all over to catch a glimpse of them! 

I hope these photos take you on a fairy-tale journey... as they did for me.

Take a look at this behind-the-scenes video! :)

Seeing Stars


Audrey Hepburn sending cosmic vibes in "How to Steal a Million"...

Carey Mulligan in Christopher Kane at a Vanity Fair Party...

'Bleach Aretha' Dress by Motel for Topshop, 39 Euros

Lady Gaga channeling the trend at the 2010 Grammys

'Silver Pyrite Cluster' Necklace by Giles & Brother

January Jones in Versace at the 2010 Emmys

Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte

Jeremy Laing Fall 2010

Another epic look from Lady Gaga at the 2010 Grammys

O.P.I. nail polish in silver and gold can get you an 'outer space' look for cheap!

Dara Ettinger 'Angelica Knuckle' Ring

A Holly Russell Design

'Super' Sunglasses 

'Two-Way Sequin Box Purse' from Topshop

ZARA Shirt


I absolutely love this trend! It definitely makes us all think twice about throwing out those old 'Star Wars' shirts... I first wanted to do a 'Galaxy' themed blog when I saw actress Carey Mulligan in a galaxy dress by Christopher Kane. 

Alongside Mr. Kane, Jeremy Laing is another designer that has brought this look down to Earth. Celebrities, like January Jones, have even accepted this cosmic style with open arms. 

But most of all, I think we all have to thank Lady Gaga for her outrageous galactic fashions. If it weren't for her unique style, we wouldn't have reached quite so high for these stars...

Dream Living

After living in Los Angeles for only a few months... 
I recently found out I got an amazing internship back in NYC! I am very very pumped but definitely bummed to leave my wonderful friends (and weather!) from this sunny state! 

Since searching Craigslist and countless NYC apartment sites isn't my favorite past-time, I decided to take a break from the apartment hunt and use this unemployment time to dream up my ultimate apartment. Below is the result of too much free time. 

(Even though these pieces are wayyyy out of my 'pocket change' range... I figure a girl can dream right?)



Animal Instinct: I plan on finding an interesting animal print piece for my room... 
I have my eye on this paper-mache Zebra head from Anthropologie.

Finding an apartment with beautiful exposed brick is like finding gold at the end of the rainbow!
 I like the industrial contrast with unique details like the giant mix-matched mirror and 
hanging work lights and the feminine dress form.

Sex & The City- Carrie Bradshaw's Apartment... need I say more.

Photo Freak: I really like how they covered the entire wall with pictures. 
I'm thinking about adding personal photos with different colors/frames to keep the eye entertained. 

Love the mix of rich mint green walls and pale pink cushions... 
not to mention the gorgeous antique trim along the wall.

~Creative ideas for the Living Room~

Wall Decor
(b, c, d, e)
Delicate wallpaper or I could go 'Carrie' style and use a light blue paint...

~The Bedroom~
(s, t, u, v, w, x)

Mix-matched knobs from antique stores can add character to any furniture piece. 

~The Bathroom~

~The Kitchen~

INSPIRATION: The 'Friends' Kitchen... 
I love the way they mixed different colors to create an 'eclectic cottage kitchen' feel.

(Basically I realized after I had created this magnificent apartment, I never really left the website... Soooo thank you Anthropologie for having just the right pieces... ha)
