This week's Blog of the Week is by another blogger I had the pleasure of meeting at the Blogger Picnic a few weeks back. I had only recently come across her blog, Tick Tock Vintage, but one of the things I instantly loved about it, besides the awesome fashion, was the adorable header. The bright and cheerful graphic makes the blog super inviting for some reason and sets the tone for blogger, Veronika's style, which seems to be the perfect mix of sophisticated and sweet. Unafraid of patterns, she loves to mix it up with funky jewelry and adorable hair bows. Read More
Urban Decay is releasing their fourth Book of Shadows (with time to spare before the holidays) and this latest edition features a few brand-new teched-up extras. The palette, which retails for $64, includes 16 eyeshadow shades (1o of which are new!), as well as a full-sized liquid eyeliner in Perversion (black), a mini Supercurl mascara, and a sample of their Original formula Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

Dita Von Teese, in my opinion, is one of the most stylish women in the world so it was only a matter of time before she started designing. She is set to launch her debut limited edition five-piece collection, Muse, later this month. The collection will feature couture-inspired detailing and, best of all, will be available in sizes 8-20. “Offering a collection that caters to women of all sizes is very important to me,” Dita explained. “Muse is designed to complement a multitude of body shapes, so every woman can celebrate her natural beauty and feel sexy in a gorgeous dress.

I'm not ashamed to admit, I'm a total Archie Comics nerd. When I was little, I spent my allowance on all issues I could find and have acquired quite a collection that I still dive into once in a while. I don't know what keeps me coming back, but when I'm looking for a quick, fun read, I turn to Archie and the gang. It's probably part nostalgia and part corny love for the characters. That's why I was pretty excited when my friend sent me the link to this awesome Archie Comic jewelry by Brooklyn-based designer GoodWoodNYC. Read More
Calling all compassionate consumers! Anyone who views clothing as a form of personal expression must check out the lovely vegan boutique Cow Jones Industrials. The beautiful, eco-conscious store can be found both online and at its brick-and-mortar location two and half hours north of NYC in Chatham, NY. Despite its rural setting, the shop has garnered quite a buzz thanks to its amazing collection of genuine non-leather, vegan apparel and a powerful commitment to ethical clothing practices, focusing on the well-being of our planet, our animals, and our selves.

I've been reading the adorable book "My Mom Style Icon" by Piper Weiss lately and with each picture and every story, I become more and more fascinated. I love old photos and to hear the back stories is an extra plus. As I pass each photo, I can't help but think, "My mom and grandma should totally be in this!" I had heard of this awesome blog a while back, but always forgot to submit so I figure now is as good a time as any to show the world my favorite style icons: two ladies I like to call Mom and Grandma. My grandma, Lorenza, seemed to have an enviable collection of dresses. Read More
  There’s a corner of vintage wonders called Billy’s Antiques where a friend of mine sells some amazing jewelry at amazing prices. I once took a street style photo of a girl who works there sometimes, Jasmin Rodriguez, and have kept up with her blog, Vintage Vandalizm, ever since. I love that her style sort of blends rockabilly, pin up, and classic vintage into a pretty modern look.  She reminds me of an early Dita Von Teese in that way, but what I really admire about both ladies is the commitment to everyday style.

There have been a lot of Marilyn Monroe inspired movies and/or photo shoots over the years with many celebrities trying and failing (cough*Lindsay Lohan*cough) to capture the complexity of Monroe, the girl and the movie star, but I have high hopes for "My Week With Marilyn." The film revolves around Monroe's first trip to Europe and a short affair with a production assistant named Colin Clark, who later wrote about the affair in a tell-all book that the film is based on. I'm a big fan of Michelle Williams and I think she was an unexpectedly amazing choice for this role.

Frustrated at the lack of fashionable options for plus-size ladies, everyones favorite bridesmaid and one of the funniest SNL  hosts in a long time (am I right?!), Melissa McCarthy, has decided to take matters into her own hands. “Trying to find stuff that’s still fashion-forward in my size is damn near impossible," she said. "It’s either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle. Read More
I know there hasn't been a blog of the week for a while now, but I'm hoping to get back on track to showcase some of my favorite blogs and fashionistas. I thought I'd start back up with one of my favorite bloggers, the always gorgeous Ashley of Fancy Fine. I recently had the pleasure of making her acquaintance at the Blogger Picnic during NYC Fashion Week and not only was she impeccably dressed, rocking a Laura Ashley original, but incredibly sweet as well.
