Skate in Chic

Jayne Min

This is not how I remember skateboarding, she does look good though. Designers are going street in a new way by creating skateboards and longboards. I'm pretty sure that falling is much prettier when riding on one of these. Don't you think? It's like when you have to deliver not so positive news...it's always better to do it looking somewhat cute. Trust me, it works. This is a major DIY project. Hmm...

Losing You by Solange

Not only is this song brilliant but the video is filmed in one of my favorite places in the world...yes, Cape Town! All the colors in this video makes me kind of want to jump in there and start dancing. Lovely!

Maison Martin Margiela + H&M = November 15th, 2012

We talked about this when the announcement was made but it's definitely on for November 15th. I can't stop thinking about Maison Martin Margiela's collaboration with H&M. It may actually be one of the best ones so far. This is huge and very different as MMM is known for playing with unusual shapes as well as being a very exclusive fashion house.

Folake Kuye Huntoon

Ok, I'm loving Folake, designer and editor of Stylepantry. Her style is super gorgeous and get this...she's married and the mother of 3. Yes, 3! She looks awesome! I guess there isn't an excuse to ever throw on those mommy jeans, with the ugly no name sneakers tide so tight that it looks as if you're trying to strangle your feet. You know who you are...yes you do. She has this cool London chic thing going on, but I think she's in LA. Ok, laying off the espionage situation I have going on here. Check out her blog if you love fashion.

The Bare & the Beautiful

Christian Dior Fall 2012 RTW 

You know that dress that may become see through as soon as you step out of the house? That same dress, where the only way you're able to wear it is by first getting approved and checked by at least two of your closest girlfriends, preferably by individuals who are able to present sworn affidavits by their opticians in regards to their 20/20 vision. We all have one of those little monsters in our closets, if not several. Speaking as a frequent offender of the somewhat sheer dress. I'm beginning to think that I'm doing it on purpose...subconsciously of course. It's happened far too many times for it to be a "mistake". Hmm.

There is just something liberating about dressing a bit reveling and this is coming from a person who would wear a full length kaftan to the beach (not a bikini person). Since I'm not very big on cleavage maybe sheer is where I should put my efforts. I will definitely do some research on this matter.

Spotted, Gwyneth Paltrow at the Tracy Anderson event at The Standard in a magnolia light wool Alicia skirt from Misha Nonoo's Spring 2013 collection. Such a classic and chic look. I'm in love with how clean and easy this is. At times less is actually more.

A trip down memory lane...

One of the most important trips of my life. Not only was this the trip that put life in perspective for me but this was also the journey to some of the most important decisions in my life. Yeah, drama:)

Let's Accessorize


For this fall think blinged out cocktail rings, cuffs, and collar necklaces. It's always fun with a little extra umf and accessories are the best way to add flair to the simplest outfits. Since I rarely wear jewelry this is probably going to be a minor adjustment for me but all you crazy kids out there should definitely go for it!
