Swimsuit Season

So, if you haven't noticed either in the magazines or when you step outside, summer is upon us. Here in Florida, it's so hot that you sweat walking out to your car. Even though I have been a Florida resident almost all my life, I rarely ever go to the beach, but the past two days I made the five minute trek to Siesta Key.
In honor of this big event for me, here's some bathing suits I think are adorable.

American Apparel Mix and Match top and bottom

Marc by Marc Jacobs

Anthropologie (one of the cutest one pieces I've seen)


Victoria's Secret (I think this is such a cute bathing suit, in fact I even have it in black, and I get tons of compliments on it, plus it was reasonable!)

Victoria's Secret (perfect for the white trend going on this summer)

Here's a few photos from the beach, I really need to go more often.

Wildfox Couture Fall 2010 VIdeo

Here's a video for Wildfox Couture's Fall 2010 collection starring Nicole Fox from America's Next Top Model. I pretty much stopped watching that show after Whitney, the plus-size model, won. However, I am very happy to see some winners actually doing something with modeling.

And here's Nicole with Tyra and during one of the ANTM photo shoots.

In honor of Memorial Day weekend...

Celebrate with some American spirit. Here's some photos I've noticed recently, apparently red, white and blue will always be in.

LOVE: Burberry Resort 2011

I am loving the jackets in the Burberry Resort 2011 line. I even like the snake skin patterned purse, which is really saying something since I tend to dislike animal prints.
I think my favorite is the last look in navy. What about you?

Sex and the City 2: Heavy on the Halston Heritage

*Warning Spoilers*

So, I went to the midnight showing of Sex and the City 2 last night. I am going to admit upfront that I was extremely tired, and upon waking up this morning, I don't remember much of the movie. However, I do remember lots and lots of Halston Heritage.

Let it be said that I am one of those girls who adores chick flicks, and that for the most part men think my taste in movies is atrocious, but last night SATC2 seemed heavy on the glamor and pretty light on plot. All the men were pretty much absent, and Carrie wore a whole lot of Halston Heritage. Now, we all know that Sarah Jessica Parker designs for them, but I felt like it robbed the movie of so many other outfits Carrie could have been wearing besides the very simple (but pretty) dresses.

Charlotte's personality was clearly absent, Miranda's was pretty shallow as well, and if weren't for Samantha, I think this movie would have been pretty dull. I gasped louder over the broken Birkin bag than I did over Carrie's short kiss with Aiden. However, it was Samantha's scene when she screamed to a whole bunch of Arab men that "Yes! She has sex!" (cue thrusting motions) that won the performance for me.

Otherwise, it was pretty lackluster in substance, I don't think this could have been shot in New York. It needed the glitz and glam of Abu Dhabi to put the "sparkle" back in the movie.

Here's a look at some of the Halston outfits I remember.

And I threw this one in because I happen to own that apron, so I was mildly excited when I saw it on the screen.

May Inspiration Board

I got inspired by a photo of a Japanese girl on The Sartorialist, so I put together this little color/inspiration board.

Even though spring is over in Florida (at least temperature-wise), it's still going on in other areas, and I think now is the time to get all the pink and girlishness out of your system before black takes over in the fall and winter.

Here's some dresses from Free People, some headbands from Urban Outfitters and a cloth-bound Alice In Wonderland book from Anthropologie. I designed the bike on Urban Outfitter's create a bike application. The Todd Selby book is one I am looking to purchase because I love his site and it's available online or at Barnes and Noble.

The background photos of the flowers were taken by The Cobra Snake from Coachella.

Enjoy the rest of spring!

Chanel Cruise 2011

Karl Lagerfeld put on quite a show in St. Tropez for Chanel's Cruise 2011 collection.

According to WWD, "The models disembarked from a boat and strolled barefoot in tunics, jumpsuits and loose trousers with a yacht-stuffed harbor as the backdrop, evoking the hedonistic, holiday spirit of this legendary town."

Crystal Renn and Georgia May Jagger walked in the show. Having Crystal Renn in the show is a big step for Lagerfeld, and also suggests that curves might be here to stay if even Lagerfeld is willing to cast plus-size models in his show.

I wasn't crazy about all the fishnet looks, but overall, I think Lagerfeld did a great job combining elegance with casual resort wear. What do you think?
