What is your favorite thing about boutique by Forever 21? I love how each piece feels lovely and special but not fussy. You can dress them up or layer them over more casual pieces for a truly unique feel.
Behind the Scenes look at Vogue's December issue, with Annie Leibovitz and Grace Coddington. The Arts issue features cover girl Cate Blanchett, and a Hansel & Gretel inspired fashion editorial featuring Lady Gaga and models Lily Cole & Andrew Garfield. The issue hits stands tomorrow! I can't wait to get it!
One thing I love is to is sit in Barns & Noble and grab every fashion magazines there is and read them all, stare at all the pictures and tune everyone out, especially because I get no magazine while at school I've been dying! and missing out!
After seeing that wonderful short film with all the Chanel clothing and accessories made for V magazine that i posted a couple of days ago, I had to go buy a copy of the magazine! I immediately fell in love with it, as do I with any fashion magazine. V magazine caught my eye with the huge pages, colors, and wonderfully chosen fashion ads, and photo shoots. I also very much enjoyed that Natalie Portman was on the cover, and had the most beautiful photo shoot of my life; edgy, raw, masculine and beautiful all at the same time.
Theres pages of collages of celebs at parties with/for V magazine, articles about new up and coming artists/musicians/models/fashion designers. Along with all of this, there was the interview with Alexa Chung I have been dying to get a hold of, along with amazing photographs of her. See the article/interview here
What was my favorite part of the magazine? The "Pin me up, pin me down" photo shoot, based off Pin up girls - done the modern way.
Thanks to Topshop's facebook page I just died a little, some of the pieces Ms. Audrey Hepburn has worn are being auctioned off over three days in December. I know everyone loves Ms. Hepburn and would die for these clothes, which is why I'm about to hyperventilate!!!! You can see all of her clothes and accessories being auctioned off, as well as vintage Chanel bags, shoes, and other designer dresses/clothing. I'M DYING! Take a LOOK!

In the 1950s and 60s, boys and men were obsessing over iconic sex goddesses Marilyn Monroe, and Bridgitte Bardot. Born in Paris in 1934, the fashion model, actress and even singer first appeared as a model in the early 1950s; appearing on the cover of ELLE magazine in March 1950. She went on to appear in many different films, perhaps best known for her controversial role in Roger Vadim's And God Created Woman in 1956 and her starring role in Jean-Luc Godard's Contempt in 1963. She even went on to have a small singing career. But Bridgitte Bardot is probably best known for the icon she has become. A fashion icon along the likes of Marilyn, Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O, she made the monokini popular and the "Bardot" neckline was named for her. Her hairstyle, a sort of beehive, has become associated with her. Guys wanted her and girls wanted to be her. John Lennon and Paul McCartney idolized her and even Andy Warhol painted her in 1974. To me, she embodies a look that I've been obsessing over lately. She's fierce, but still has something sweet about her; sexy, girly and edgy all at the same time. She's the type of woman that can kick your ass in a dress. (And she still is kicking ass - she's now an animal rights activist.) She's a huge icon to me, I mean, what's not to love?
I recently came across Sonic Fabric, this awesome fabric company makes fabric out of 50% recorded audio cassette tape and 50% polyester thread. The fabric ends up looking metallic and shiny, and the best thing about it? It's actually listenable! You can make a listening device and listen to your fabric or if it's something already made, your clothing!
Every day I receive the Zoe Report in my e-mail, and "I die" a little. Rachel Zoe sends out an email to her subscribers letting them know about a new item in the fashion world yet to be discovered and can be the new trend, she explains why the item is great and then goes on to usually show you an item similar that is less expensive. Here's what the e-mail looks like,
it's a pretty great way to know what's in, or what's up and coming
I'm shaking with anticipation to see An Education Thursday for my one year anniversary with my boyfriend, I fell in love the minute I found out it took place in London during the 1960's, it was plus for me to find out it was a love story of a teenage girl (played by Carey Mulligan, who reminds me of Audrey Hepburn and Zooey Deschanel) and an older man (Peter Sarsgaard). The costumes are simply amazing, take a look.
Lil' J even has a trendy middle name. Watching Gossip Girl last night I was very happy that Jenny was more in it than recently this season. Her outfits were amazing, as usual, and I loved her cotillion dress! I wish I still had occasions to get dressed up for like prom in high school. Although I never wore a full length gown for proms or anything, lately I've had the urge to wear one and I'd definitely wear this. Also The Plastiscines performed at the Cotillion! A while ago I did a post about their EP and now they're full album, About Love, is out and it's very good; I definitely recommend it! Plus they looked just as amazing as Lil' J.
I loved this dress but I couldn't find a better picture.
Ahhh I can't find who this dress is by but I will let you guys know if I do!
