Fall Girl

Hello Lovelies!
I hope everything is going well for everyone with school, jobs, life, etc. I've been so busy with school! I love it, it's just very overwhelming at times. Fall is in the air and I was inspired to create an outfit that was chic but modern at the same time.

I could just imagine myself walking down 5th Avenue in this lovely outfit! Just look at that beautiful ChloƩ Python Bag, isn't it fabulous! Pair the lovely satin top with some skinny jeans and sophisticated boots and you'll be a reincarnation of Ms. Hepburn herself.

Do you like this outfit? What's your favorite piece?
Give me your thoughts, let me know!!!


XOXO

Burberry Prorsum

Hello Lovelies!


It's been a while, school has been keeping me insanely busy as of late. I picked up a copy of Vanity Fair the other day because Lady Gaga was on the cover. I am fascinated by that woman, plus, her wardrobe is epic to say the least.

While flipping through the pages, I came across Burberry Prorsum's Fall/Winter
add campaign. The clothes are stunning!
Always classic yet still fashion forward, this collection does not disappoint.
I'm loving the retro-modern military vibe.


What do you think of the collection, are you a Burberry fan?
Let me know your thoughts and be sure to check out the entire line on
Net-A-Porter.com

XOXO

No Need For An Introduction....

Hello Lovelies!
It's been a while...again...do forgive me, I promise to do better.
I just came across this dress on net-a-porter
and I believe it's so beautiful it deserves a post all it's own.
Very rarely does a piece of couture take my breath away, but this gown did just that...
Without further ado..
the Oscar de la Renta Draped Silk-Satin Gown.

Indian Dreams

Hello Lovelies!
I'm so sorry it's been so long since my last post!
I promise I'm alright, I haven't died...
I've actually been quite the busy bee lately. I just started a new job and I've been working on my fall class schedule. I'll be taking a couple of archaeological classes
as well as a class on the history of Indian religion.
There's something so beautiful, exotic and seductive about India.
Everything is so colorful and spectacular with a history that is as complex and rich as it is deep.
I grew up in a town with an extremely large Hare Krishna population, the largest in the world, actually...so Indian culture has always been (somewhat) a part of my life. It is, to me, beautiful in every way.

Krishna and Radha

Bringing me to the topic of today's post...My sister and I have both
been on a bit of a Indian-themed kick lately. Bangles, Sarees, Choli, Mehndi; I just can't get enough!

Luckily, hints of Indian style are popping up on the runways and in department stores across the globe.



















Saree-esque draping, jewels and embellishments...I do believe I'm in heaven.

I'm a little pressed for time, so I can't upload all of the Indian inspired items
that I found, but I hope you enjoy these pictures.
Go out, buy yourself some embellished caftans, harem pants and bangles...
I don't think this trend can EVER go out of style.

Me, On Broadway?!

Hello Lovelies!
This post is WAY different from what I normally write, but I thought
it would be cool if I let you guys know a little bit more about myself.
You all know that I love fashion, but you probably didn't know that my true passion is singing.

(Yes, this is me in the picture and this is about the extent of my photoshop skills!)

I'm not on Broadway yet, but I had to catch your attention! :D
I started singing in church when I was 4 years old and started taking lessons when I was 12. Charlotte Church was my idol, I wanted to sound just like her. People always told me that I had a "big"
voice, but I was so shy, I never thought I'd be able to perform on stage. I started out singing opera and I know songs in 8 different languages.
My dad took the family to New York when I was 15.
While we were there, I saw Phantom of the Opera and it became my dream to perform on broadway.
As I got older, my confidence slowly began to grow.


I'm in college now getting a degree in Anthropology, I graduate in December. However, I still sing everyday. My whole life, people have told me I wouldn't make it and that singing is a stupid profession to persue.
But I won't give up on my dream.
I'm not on Broadway yet, but I swear one day I'll make it.
Here's a video of me singing Taylor the Latte Boy!




I just started using my youtube channel again, uploading videos of me singing. I wanted to share it with you all, my readers.
Let me know what you think and request songs,
I'd love to sing for you! Please share this post and my channel with your friends if you'd like, it would mean the world to me!

Has Megan Fox Had Plastic Surgery...Again?

Hello Lovelies!
Not too long ago, I wrote about Heidi Montag and her plastic surgery fiasco. It appears that I may have a new lady to add to my list
of women who've gone a little...shall we say, "knife happy".
Rumors of surgery are swirling after shocking pictures of Megan Fox appeared in the UK Tabloids Famous and NW.
























Her face, is absolutely terrifying.
She looks almost alien, as if her skin is stretched too tightly over her bones.
I'm not sure how credible these sources are, as I don't live in the UK and know nothing about these tabloids.
These magazines could be a step above The National Enquirer for all I know, but I simply had to write about this.


There is no denying that Megan is a beautiful woman...or at least,
she was. I'll be sure to follow up on this post as I learn more.
What do you all think? Do you believe the reports, has she really gone under the knife,or are these magazines better off used as something to
start a fire on a cold winter day?
(Ladies in the UK, please let me know if these magazines are believable or if they are complete garbage.)

Style Spotlight: La Roux

Hello Lovelies!
I've decided to start a "Style Spotlight" section on this page
to write about some of the most fashion-forward ladies in the entertainment industry today. I really love it when I discover a talented singer that I'd previously never heard of.
The more obscure the band, the better!
However, I'm not one of those people who freak out when those lesser-known artists go mainstream...(aka, when they "sell out").
I love it when these people and bands become popular!
To me, this new-found popularity means that there are more people who get to enjoy their amazing music.
This also means I can discuss the music I love with more people!



For example, I've been listening to Sia for ages.
(If you don't know who she is, be sure to check her out on youtube!)
I was ecstatic when I found out she'd be singing on the Eclipse soundtrack.
Needless to say, her popularity is probably going to skyrocket and she won't be the "obscure" girl I once loved, but it doesn't matter to me.
I'll keep on listening to her!

The same is true with La Roux.
I discovered her music early last year. As soon as I heard "In for the Kill" and saw her amazing style,
I was hooked.
This girl totally rocks my socks.
She completely owns her Pompadour hairstyle plus, her androgynous
clothing is classy, fashion-forward and intriguing.


Notice how she pairs bold prints with low key pieces.
A simple, tailored jacket works perfect
to tone down the statement pieces in her outfits.



Fashion and style are all about balance,
a delicate balance that can easily be thrown out of whack.
Loud pieces are meant to be the center of attention and should be
paired with items that complement them and don't draw attention
away from them.
Notice how La Roux manages to pull off the wild pants in the photo above.
The simple coat and sleek shoes are what make the outfit work.

Remember,
when putting an outfit together, only ONE part of it should completely
grab an observer's attention. If you opt for a bold shirt, pair it with simple
pants and minimal accessories...if it's printed pants, do the reverse.
Don't be afraid to experiment!
Fashion is all about expression, be yourself!




I love La Roux's music and style.
What do you think? Would you wear outfits like this,
or is this trend a bit too wild for your taste?
Let me know!
Also, if you have an artist or performer you'd like me to write about, shoot me an email!
I'd love to have your input!

My Oh Mi(ley Cyrus)!

Hello Lovelies!
Happy Tuesday, I hope you're all doing well and enjoying the fabulous summer weather. I just traveled down to Melbourne to
visit my friends at the beach and have a girls-only Eclipse Weekend.
The movie was amazing, if you haven't seen it yet,
quit reading this, get in your car and drive to the closest movie theater.
Be sure to drive like a Cullen on the way.



ANYWAY, on to what I'd really like to write about.
It seems like Miss Miley Cyrus has been turning up in the news quite a bit nowadays...and never for the right reasons.
I'll admit, even though I'm in my 20's, when I wake up on Saturday mornings, I'll eat breakfast and watch The Suite Life of Zack and Cody as well as Hannah Montana...Laugh if you want, but
I know you do it too!


With all the buzz surrounding this girl, I have to
ask a few questions:
1.What happened to the old Miley we know and love?
2. Why is she suddenly anti-pants?
3. Why would any parent allow their daughter to act this way?
4. Is anyone actually buying her CD's?


Ok, we get it, you can't be tamed.
You're almost 18 and you enjoy showing off your tattoos and pencil-thin body.
But seriously, have you lost your mind?!
Miley, bless your little pea-pickin' heart,
(as we say here in the south)
I do believe you've gone off your rocker.


It seems as though our dear little Miley is on a mission to experience
everything life has to offer by the time she's 18.
Since when did "growing up" become synonymous with "becoming a slut"?


Pole dancing, lap dancing, lingerie shopping sprees and faux-lesbian kisses... this girl is on a fast track to become the next LiLo.
(Get your SCRAM anklets ready)

What do you all think about Miley and her behavior?
Is this just a part of growing up or is she out of control?

New Obsession: Florence and the Machine

Hello Lovelies!
I just discovered this amazing singer, her name is Florence,
more commonly known as
Florence and the Machine.
Her voice is amazingly beautiful, she puts so much into emotion
and soul into her songs.
Plus, I love her style and her hair is gorgeous!




I got some pictures together of her in her amazing clothes, I also added
a link to one of my favorite songs, Drumming Song.
Have you all heard of her before, what do you think of her voice
and her outfits?

Oh Kurt, Where Have You Been All My Life?


Hello Lovelies!
I've made a life changing decision...I'm moving to England.
Seriously.
You women over there are so lucky, you have the best shopping, not to mention Lush Bubble Bars are like a million times cheaper.
Get me a boat and a handsome man to row it because I'm crossing the
pond and I'm not looking back.

Hercules- KG

What could have possibly led me to this decision?
Well ladies, I've discovered Kurt Geiger and his fabulous shoes.
He is now the love of my life, I shall die in a happy, shoe-induced bliss.
Not to mention, his website is having some
INSANE sales right now!!!!!
I'm also loving shoes by Carvela, which are also sold on the site.
I can kiss my paycheck goodbye because I have shopping to do.
Here are some of my favorites, go on the site and
let me know which ones you like!

You Look Like Victoria, Eclipse

Hello Lovelies!
It's Part 4 of my Twilight Outfit Saga!
Today, we're on to one of the main villains of the series...
Victoria.
She's extremely beautiful, cat-like, and has hair so red it looks like fire.
She's also exceptionally cruel and vengeful.
The beauty she exhibits on the outside is merely a cruel irony in comparison to her wicked heart.

I think every woman has little Victoria in her.
I mean to say that we all have something in us that makes us strong and mysterious...our inner femme fatale.
Let's tell the truth, Victoria is pretty cool...to say it bluntly, she kicks butt.
She's strong and can hold her own.
When designing Victoria's outfit, I wanted it to reflect her personality,
so I gave it a somewhat militaristic vibe. It had to be something that would hold up against excessive amounts of traveling through harsh
terrain but still look stylish.
The back of the cobweb shirt is amazing and I love the Raven Skull
and Om Necklaces. I added a fox ring because of it's symbolism.
To Native Americans, the fox represented an animal that could lure a person to their demise, just as Victoria destroys everyone she comes into contact with.
Here's the outfit I came up with, do you like it?
PS, if you like the Raven Skull Necklace but don't want to pay an
arm and a leg for it, you can find the exact same thing
on Etsy.com for as little as $25!
Plus, they're all handmade originals by artists around the world!
