PS. I'd like to make a shout out to my papa bear, Happy Birthday! I could not have succeeded in my life and be where I am today, if it was not for my daddy.

Red Carpet Fav's from Screen Actors Guild Awards 2011


NY Mag couldn't have gotten it more right. Cutie Patootie, Hailee Steinfeld in Prada, Mila Kunis in Alexander McQueen Resort, January Jones in Carolina Herrera, and I had HAD to add Dianna Agron in vintage Chanel Haute Couture. Favs! Who were your favs?

Nicki Minaj SNL

It's Nicki overload, and I ain't sick of it yet! BARBIE fo' LIFE! (she tots brings out the inner monsta in me) and this just goes to show that she's got acting potential. just sayin'

Flippa K Spring 2011


Just thought I would include some inspiration from Flippa K's Spring 2011 line. Can't wait to invest in an Khaki suit soon!


She's still cray cray, but I still love my barbie. That intro....priceless.

Lulu & Your Mom in SF

I read Lulu's blog daily and I was happy to see she did a blog entry on San Francisco, being that I am from the bay. Check out her coffee, shopping, and thrift spots here.

It's Official.


I'm graduating in exactly 5 months!! On Saturday, June 11th at 9am to be exact. Although I'm a bit petrified for life post grad, I am happy to say I think I'm more than ready...just need to lock down a job. I also wouldn't mind interning again, but I definitely would look to continue working towards the fashion industry. If no internship, then I'm looking at working and studying for my GRE's for graduate school or an Executive Buyers program in New York with Saks. At least I have options? AHHH!!!

Karmen Pedaru for Vogue Nippon March 2011


Is it me or can you see Anna Dello Russo rocking each and every outfit in this shoot?!! She's so guilty!! And that picture of Karmen in Prada smiling looks eerily like Anna, doesn't it? LOL. Anyways, I love Karmen in this editorial she did for Vogue Nippon. It's super fun, chic, and a bit edgy. Do you see the same lobster head piece Gaga wore a few months back? I'm also seeing a lot of Gucci making head way on covers and on the first page of an editorial. Go Frida!

Gangs of New York for Vogue US


I love this race/gang/best designers of NY editorial Grace did. Asians in Proenza? Blacks in Rodatre?! GENIUS! The editorial also includes some of my favs including Abbey, Karlie, Joan, Hyoni, Arizona, Jourdan, and Fei Fei.

D&G Overload


I love how eclectic D&G always is, but sometimes it's too much. This season's graphic tees made me want to hurl, but besides that I really enjoyed those slim brown pants, short trench, skinny orange belt, the plaid and even the coca-cola sweaters (perhaps I'm biased because I'm a coke fan). Other then that, I thought the collection was mediocre and your average D&G. They need to bring Chad White back on their runway! Anywho, I love me some Simon Nessman, so I thought I would include their Spring Summer 2011 ads. YUM. Speaking of their Spring Summer 2011 ads, don't the clothes look amazing? I want that double breasted white suit and those floral printed pants and blazer. EKKK!

Toddlers & Tiaras

This show is ridiculous, but I can't stop watching it! There's something about little girls looking and strutting like barbie that freaks me out, but I guess it makes great television. What has the world succumb to?!

Isn't Michelle Trachtenberg's costume the BEST?!?!?!?! It totally reminded me of this show. Who would have thought to be a giant version of a littler beauty pageant queen?! pure genius!

3.1 Philip Lim Mens Fall 2011


I am in love with Philip Lim's Men Fall 2011 collection. How amazing is that printed green suit? It tots reminds me of Marni, but better! I love the leather jackets, the black bags, those sweat look trousers and sweaters, and the shoes. This collection is def one of my favorites for the Fall season. What do you think? yay or nay?

Jamming To...


Adele 21/ This whole album has been on repeat for the past 48 hours and I haven't gotten sick of it yet. I'm in love with Set Fire To The Rain, Turning Tables, Take It All, He Won't Go, and Rumour Has It. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

Ellie Goulding/ First heard about her through my friend Jamal and I can't get enough. Especially this one song called Under The Sheets (Chiddy Bang Remix). But her album is great nonetheless and I can't wait to see her at Coachella!!


Yelle/ Even though I can't really understand what she's saying in 80% of her songs, I still love the beats. Who doesn't love French pop/techno?

Mumford and Sons/ Never really knew who they were until I came home and my sister couldn't stop blabbing on about them. From then, they've also been on repeat. I love how mellow, soft, and whimsical they are. I think Timeshel, Dustbowl Dance, Sigh No More, and Little Lion Man. Great album, highly recommend.


The Black Keys/ One band I'm definitely looking forward to seeing at Coachella. If you couldn't tell already, this is kind of a giant Coachella album listening play list I've made for myself in order to prep for all the excitement in April! But yes, I cannot wait to see the Black Keys! I mean, who doesn't love TIghten Up?!

Robyn/ I've listened to her for a long time now and she's definitely a person I'd like to see live. I think her acoustic versions of her song are incredible. Indestructible, Hang with Me, Dancing On My Own, You Should Have Known Better, and Criminal Intent are the best of both part one and two of Body Talk.

Paul Smith Mens Fall 2011


I absolutely adore this collection for Paul Smith. It's wearable, chic, and trendy at the same time. What I like even more is the older men we're getting on the runways, which I've been seeing in Givenchy, Thom Browne, Yves Saint Laurent, and more. Anyways, I think strong colors are going to be a huge trend this fall. I love that orange coat, that sky blue double breasted suit, the sport coat, the knits, the trousers, and everything in between. I WANT I WANT I WANT. -_-"

Givenchy Mens Fall 2011


Is it me, of the men for Givenchy always ethnic/exotic/albino looking? Either way, I likey. I love what looks like thick woo, the structure in the coats, the pop of fur, and those surprisingly thigh high lace up sneakers (even though I would never be caught dead wearing those!). I'm not too sure how I feel about the rottweiler print, but it is different. I love that shirt/jacket Paolo is wearing and those glasses look divine.


Prada Spring/Summer 2011 Video Campaign

I'm sure this was one of many favorite spring collections for many people. Who doesn't love Prada's spring/summer 2011 video ad campaign with Ratatat playing in the background? Tots perf.

anja-rubik1 anjasasha1

You know if you read my blog, that I would HAVE had to post this blog some time or later. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Anja Rubik & Sasha Knezevic together, they're practically my favorite supermodel couple! I think they look phénoménal in this spread they did together for Vogue Russia. love.

Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2011


This is Sarah's second collection for Alexander McQueen and I think her pre-fall 2011 collection is pretty safe. Although I do feel like I see some Yves Saint Laurent references with the structure of some pieces, who doesn't use structure? Sarah's play on hues like red, blue and black are great, especially with the military-esque coats. What do you guys think of Sarah's collection, did she nail it again? And what's up with the random hot pink piece? For more of Sara's collection for McQueen, click here.

Clémence Poésy for Marie Claire US


I remember seeing Clémence in Paris this past summer when she was filming scenes with Ed WEstwick for Gossip Girl and even then she was absolutely gorgeous. I also remember seeing her at the Chanel Haute Couture show, but nonetheless she was such a little French darling. I love her Bridget Bardot look in this spread she did for Marie Claire, I love the sexy, flirty, yet innocent look because she can play that type of character quite well. What do you guys think? For more of Clémence, click here.




It'll be my first Coachella and I'm happy to say that I'll actually be spending my birthday there! I am beyond stoked, time for me to whip up an inspiration board! Any outfit ideas?!

Lovers for Vogue US February 2011


I remember posting a few supermodel couple themed blog entries last year like Coco's wedding and my obsession over Anja and her man, Sasha, but I thought it was a very creative idea that Anna did a Significant Other shoot in her Feb issue. I think Anja, Coco, Alessandra, Bonnie, and Angela's SO is just as gorgeous as they are. lucky biotches. *sigh. The little anecdotes at the bottom of the editorials are super cute, I suggest reading them.
