The Row x Toms shoe drop in Honduras

I love this video of the Olsen twins and Blake Mycoskie doing a shoe drop in Honduras.  If you're having  a bad day, watch this, I guarantee it will put a smile on your face.

VMA Black Carpet

I hate to say this, but after watching the VMA's last night my suspicions have been confirmed.  Musicians don't dress well.  All right, sorry if you're offended, but for the most part it's true.

I adore Nicki Minaj way more than the average person, but her outfit was disastrous.  There was something weird about watching Jessie J sing in a chair with a bedazzled leotard and cast.  Lady Gaga didn't rock her normal avant garde fashion, so she's out of the game.

Britney Spears has never been a *sophisticated* fashionista, Selena Gomez was channeling Dracula's bride in her pre-show outfit, and Katy Perry's yellow block on her head was too reminiscent of the Dior Couture show that I also didn't like.

OK, sorry for the rant, but that leaves us with the likes of Beyonce (WHO IS PREGNANT MY LIFE IS COMPLETE) in Lanvin, Katie Holmes whose outfit I actually would wear except maybe not to a nationally televised event, Zoe Saldana who isn't a musician and thus has fashion sense and the Teen Wolf girl.

Resort 2012: Favorite looks

As always, the season passes, and I haven't posted all the collections I loved.  This time though I decided to pick 11 (I couldn't chose 10) designers that I hadn't posted about yet and tried to pick a couple looks that really stood out to me.  Basically, I just pick outfits that I would either personally wear or if I saw someone on the street, I would think wow, that girl can dress.  Let me know if you had other favorites!

Alexa Chung for Madewell Fall 2011 Video

Ohhh my gosh, I am getting so excited for September.  This is going to be THE month for awesome collaborations like the huge Missoni for Target line that comes out Sept. 13 and now the Alexa Chung for Madewell line that comes out Sept. 22.  Her first collaboration with Madewell was awesome, and from the video, this one is looking like it is going to be equally as great!

OBSESSED: V Magazine's backstage photos from fall 2011 couture

Hope these photos from Fall 2011 Couture get you excited for the upcoming NYFW shows, they are absolutely stunning!


My six favorite September issue covers

As I'm sure you all know, there are a ton of fashion magazines out there, and with September being THE month for magazines, it's hard to know which ones to invest in.  These are my favorite covers and my favorite magazines that I have either purchased or am going to once they come out where I live.  (Not pictured is the Heroes version of V Magazine that has a huge spread styled by Carine Roitfeld that I cannot wait to see!)

What are you favorite covers??

OBSESSED: Bambi Northwood-Blyth for Muse

I have seen photos from this shoot floating around on Tumblr for some time, but seeing the full spread is making me even more obsessed with this gorgeous shoot by Tim Barber for Muse.  Bambi Northwood-Blyth looks stunning!

Glee for Fashion's Night Out

Sorry for the hiatus everyone, but thanks for keeping my blog afloat!  Are you all getting ready for Fashion's Night Out?  Check out this great video of Glee singing "Fashion."  What I would give to take in the FNO festivities!

Photos from Madonna's film W.E. for Vanity Fair

I have a feeling Madonna's film about American socialite Wallis Simpson is going to be sartorially amazing.  Check out these gorgeous photos for Vanity Fair.

Tanner Hall Trailer

I love this trailer and am hoping it will be an awesome movie.  Not only did Diane von Furstenberg's daughter Tatiana direct it, but Diane herself designed the costumes.

Emma Watson for i-D

Yes, yes, yes!  This is a short but sweet photo spread of Emma Watson in my favorite magazine i-D for pre-fall 2011.  Enjoy!

Dr. Martens Fall 2011 Lookbook and Video

I am totally obsessed with the fall lookbook and video featuring Agyness Deyn for Dr. Martens.  The theme is "firsts" and my first pair of Dr. Martens came from my dad when I was around 12.  They were loafers, and seven years later he bought me the boots.  Thanks dad!  When did you get your first pair?

Kate Moss for Vogue: video and wedding decor photos

As I said in my previous post, these photos from Vogue make Kate Moss's wedding look even more spectacular than I originally thought.  I adore the decor and the little details she incorporated for her big day.  Check out this lovely video of Marc Jacobs, Mario Sorrenti, Camilla Nickerson and Candy Pratts Price discuss how awesome Kate is and how fun her wedding was, and these photos of the decor I found on Wildfox Couture's blog are absolutely stunning!

Fall hair styles for back to school

Here in Florida, school starts in a little over a week and I am bumming pretty hard.  It's going to be my last year as an undergraduate which is bittersweet because I have to figure out what to do with my life now and I just don't feel like going back to another hard semester.  However, on a lighter note, I have a goal this year to get better at makeup and hair and that being said, here's four looks that I saw on the runway for fall that I am totally obsessed with and want to try out!  I am going to attempt to do them in the first few weeks of classes and post pictures, what's your favorite?

(Also, I know they are incredibly simple looking but that's the kind of style I like and I am not very good at doing hair :X)

Gorgeous side-swept hair from Rodarte Fall 2011

Trend Alert: Into the Wild

There's two prints that I've noticed everywhere and been obsessed with this fall and that's panthers/wild cats and deer.  Check out some of these affordable and not so affordable ways to rock this style this season!

Kate Moss for Vogue: Photos from her wedding day by Mario Testino

Here it is finally!  The gorgeous photos shot by Mario Testino of Kate Moss's "Mosstock" wedding weekend have finally been released on for the September issue.  Her wedding looks even more stunning in these photos than it did when pictures were first released.  The flower girls and bridesmaids look amazing, and Kate, wow, she looks beyond beautiful!  Enjoy, I know I did!

Frances Bean Cobain by Hedi Slimane

Whoa!  Frances Bean Cobain is a babe!  Check out these gorgeous photos of the daughter of grunge legend Kurt Cobain and the notorious Courtney Love by Hedi Slimane.

Missoni for Target Preview

I had a feeling I would be more into the housewares part of the collection than the clothing considering I am not the biggest fan of the Missoni line on it's own.  If you're into bold and colorful prints, you're going to die over this collection... what do you think?  Will you be running out to purchase the Missoni bicycle?  I think my favorite article of clothing is the men's looking (might actually be for men) sweater and I like the patterned quilt.

Rodarte for Opening Ceremony Fall Collection

OK time to quote Rachel Zoe... "I die!"  Rodarte's new collection for Opening Ceremony is absolutely stunning, I am guessing the prices will be high, so I will just drool over them on the Internet!

i-D Pre-Fall 2011 Covers

I posted about how obsessed I was with Lindsey Wixson's pre-fall cover, and now here's some more to join the ranks with her.  Enjoy!

Gisele Bundchen by Emma Summerton

Dream Fall Look

I decided to create my dream look for the fall on Polyvore.  It's not the most affordable look considering it's comprised of a Proenza Schouler skirt, Alexander Wang top and a rather expensive ring.  However, the nail polish, the bag and the boots are pretty affordable.  What's your dream fall look?

Lollapalooza 2011 Street Style

Check out these awesome photos from Lollapalooza, I love the style the people rocked there and the photos Vogue posted.  Enjoy!

Julia Restoin Roitfeld for V Magazine

 Like I said, today is kind of Carine Roitfeld Day with so many new things being released on the family like her work for V Magazine.  However, I am totally obsessed with Roitfeld's daughter Julia.  She is absolutely stunning, and I love these pictures of her for V Magazine online! 

V73: The Heroes Issue Preview

Somehow today is going to be themed Carine Roitfeld day, so if you don't like her, I suggest you probably not read this post and the next one.  Since quitting Vogue Paris, which was an incredibly big bummer to me, she has been busy working on projects for Barneys, V Magazine and her own biography, so here's a look at the previews for the upcoming Elizabeth Taylor themed September issue with Mario Testino.  I can't wait to get my hands on it!

OPI Touring America Fall Collection

Oh man, I will definitely be investing in these colors when I get home.  The collections came out Aug. 3 and features a lot of perfect dark colors for fall and some good bright colors for those of you who prefer pinks and corals.  I think I will probably end up getting Get in the Expresso Lane if it's not too close to Suzi Loves Cowboys from the Texas line, Road House Blues, Honk if you Love O.P.I. and I Eat Mainely Lobsters.  What do you think?

Photo Journal: Seattle, WA (part one)

First off I want to thank everyone for keeping my blog alive while I've been traveling.  I really appreciate all the views and encourage you to leave me more comments!  Also, with the new school year coming up, I'm looking to add something a little different to my blog to make it more original, feel free to leave me ideas!

Here's a look at some photos I took in Seattle, which by the way is an amazing town that I would be happy to live in some day if I thought I could ward of seasonal depression.  When I was there the weather was totally perfect, and the skies were cloudless every day.  The locals say it's the summers that make up for all the cloudy days they get throughout the year, and I have to tell you, if Seattle was as beautiful all year round as it was when I was there, it'd definitely move into my top 10 list of places I'd like to live some day, a list I might be adding San Francisco too as well.

OBSESSED: Lindsey Wixson for i-D pre-fall

If you haven't already figured out I am totally obsessed with i-D magazine.  I think it's just a really awesome publication that strives to be different, and I am still reeling from the gorgeous covers they put out in the summer.  Now we're getting into pre-fall, and I can't wait to see who all makes the covers because they put one of my favorite models Lindsey Wixson on the first one shot by Terry Richardson.  What do you think, awesome or cliche?

Karl Lagerfeld's Impulse Macy's Collection

Here's the lookbook to Karl Lagerfeld's Macy's Collection that will hit stores Aug. 31.  I think the collection might be slanted more toward the working 20 something girl, which is not really my style, but you can bet I'll be getting one of the Lagerfeld T-shirts just because they're awesome and happen to be the most reasonable in the collection that ranges from $50 to $170.  However, I am all about that Peter Pan collared black and white dress, just to go on the record.  Hopefully the collection will live up to its lookbook when it hits stores.  What do you think?

America's Next Top Model's All Star Season Promo Pics

America's Next Top Model is finally doing an all star show.  While I wish some models like Kim and Mercedes were on the show, I am pretty happy with some of the choices and I'm sure it's going to be drama filled because all these ladies have incredibly bold personalities.

ANTM isn't known for boosting model's careers, but I am pretty sure none of these ladies are going to make it big in the industry considering a lot of them are in their late 20s now which is the equivalent of being 50 in models years.  However, it's sure to be a good season, and I'm rooting for Allison and Laura because I remember them having a lot of potential.  Who would you like to see win?

Drew Barrymore directs Best Coast's "Our Deal" Music Video

Starring Chloe Moretz, this video directed by Drew Barrymore is adorable. While we've seen it before sartorially, it doesn't mean it's not good. Think The Outsiders meets Grease meets West Side Story and add Chloe Moretz doing a lot of running and looking good doing it.  Enjoy!

PS: How cute is that boy?
