Summer is officially is full swing and while I might be lacking in funds to buy all the pretty, summery things I love, I decided to make a “Summer Wishlist” of fashionable items that add some summer fun to ensembles lacking the colorful tights and cardigans of autumn and spring. I'm a total Fall girl who loves to layer, but getting creative with colors, prints, and accessories is what I love best about summer. I hope you enjoy peeking into my online ... Read More
While Mad Men won't be back till early 2012, if you're missing the fabulous style created by costume designer, Janie Bryant, fear not, you can still get a dose of it come August when her 65-piece collaboration with Banana Republic's creative director, Simon Kneen, emerges. Check out some of the looks below and my thoughts on some of the pieces.
I'm definitely digging the men's wear, I'm a sucker for a bow tie or sweater vest, but I'm not ... Read More
From art to photography, this fellow Kristina with a K, of KrisAtomic, is one talented lady! Her prints are beyond adorable and the only reason I've never bought one is because I can never decide on just one. Check out some of her awesome prints and paintings to buy here in her online shop. I think my favorites at the moment are the Miu Miu shoe and Catgirl Painting. Her blog itself is full of gorgeous photographs, clothing ... Read More
So I'm the worst at riding a bike. I know..seems so simple, but I wobble and shake and I'm ashamed to admit I cried when trying to get over various hills in flats that kept slipping off. I don't like fast rides, the out-of-controlness freaks me out, so the idea of fastness on a bike, maybe crashing or falling always scared me. Believe me, I know what a wuss I am, but this video gives me inspiration! My ex-boyfriend, an avid and frequent biker, recently ... Read More
I’ve recently come across two online sources that take issue with what is basically the infantization of women and women’s media. There’s The Daily Beast’s “OMG! Women's Sites Need to Grow Up” by Tricia Romano and there’s a blog post by Julie Klausner.
Both Jane Pratt’s highly anticipated site, xoJane.com, and Zooey Deschanel’s new collaborative site, HelloGiggles, are aimed at young women ages 16-35. As sites that call themselves the place ... Read More
I mentioned photographer Jamie Beck previously when I blogged about her fantastic CoCo Rocha cinemgraphs, but I didn't really get to talk about Jamie's photography blog itself, From Me To You. The photos are stunning and you really get a glimpse inside the world as she see it. My absolute favorite part though are her gorgeous inspiration shoots. She doesn't do outfit posts too often, but when she does, they are extra special. Under the "Daily Outfits" link on the ... Read More
Forever21 always kind of irked me for a variety of reasons: the sizes are strange and ill-fitting, they pretty much blatantly knock off designers, and their bags have random bible verses on them, which can seem a bit pushy in my opinion. Now let's add one more reason to the mix..they can't take a joke! WTForever 21 (while it's still up) is a blog run by Rachel Kane whose purpose is to hilariously and endearingly poke fun at the franchise's more ridiculous ... Read More
I blog a lot about fashion blogs, which I love and can't get enough of, but I thought I'd showcase one of the blogs I go to the most for entertainment news and fashion opinions I respect: Tom&Lorenzo. I only recently realized they changed their official blog name from Project Rungay to Tom&Lorenzo. It makes sense though since when the blog first began in 2006 it was primarily about Project Runway, but covers a lot more now. Even if you didn't ... Read More
This month, Vogue Italia has created a fabulous cover of curvy ladies for their latest June issue! Models, Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley all look the epitome of gorgeous gracing the cover and lovely Marquita Pring is added to the mix in other shots. The photos are both sexy and elegant. Although there’s sexy lady curves is the shots (remember the Superbowl/Lane Bryant fiasco?), the models still maintain a very high fashion, editorial feel ...

Blogger, Marlena, 17, is among the the fabulous teenage bloggers popping up over the past few years. With a shout out from the most well known of the bunch, Tavi of Style Rookie, Marlena's blog, Self Constructed Freak has been growing in popularity. Some of Tavi's recent posts actually seem to be taking some fashion cues from Self Constructed Freak. Marlena's mix of 80's punk and gothic, twee infusions makes her one of the most interesting ...
