Image from Elle magazine, April 2011
I am a loyal subscriber to virtually every fashion magazine in the U.S. and when I say loyal, I mean loyal. In fact, in order to justify my magazine consumption, I tend to force myself to inspect every single page (and actually read every article) although “force” is kind of a harsh term, since its actually always a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
This month, while reviewing one of my favs, Elle, I came across this picture of Emma Roberts. My first thought: Love the Burberry Prorsum jacket. Love! My next thoughts: (1) Is that a giant safety pin in her ear? (2) And who is the genuis behind such a creation? (3) And I absolutely need to have it. Now. Apparently, it is a Tom Binns Design. If your taste in fashion is anything like mine, your welcome.Read More
Zara Skirt and Shirt, Sam Edelman Shoes
Spring wardrobe essential #1: Neutrals. This is my take. Is this skirt from Zara not fabulous? What’s more, its leather! Perfection I tell you. And what better way to add some spice to a toned down neutral look than with a pair of leopard print heels?
This is what I like to call my “going to the stables” look. Nevermind that there are no stables in my distant future. Nevermind that I really don’t even like horses all that much (ok, I’m actually scared to death of them) and I’m clumsy and irresponsible in the way that makes me prone to unfortunate situations like stepping in horse manure, which always sort of takes the fun out of just about everything horse related. Surely, if I really had a legitimate engagement at the stables, I mightn’t be in heels and a short skirt. But that’s irrelevant. Fashion always brings out the little girl in me who loves to play dress up. If I’m going to an event, in my mind, getting to pick out the costume is always the best part. I guess for me events only exist as opportunities to showcase great clothes. Is that normal?Read More
Good. Bad. Ugly. I want to hear from you. Early and often too.
“Most people dream of swimming pools. With me its closets.”
True fact. Naturally, one (closet) will suffice if its custom and in excess of 500 square feet. Oh, and I’m not sharing it with anyone (FYI future husband: separate bathrooms and closets are mandatory; separate bed(room)s are discretionary and depending on specific circumstances, i.e., do you snore? But that is neither here nor there).
Other information about me worthy of public disclosure: I do not snore; I have never tried hot coffee and I never will; Haribo gummy frogs = not so secret way to my heart; I am obsessed with baby anything, which includes, but is not limited to, human babies, puppies, kittens, ducklings, cubs, chicks, etc.; When packing for vacations, my sunglasses repeatedly seem to occupy the vast majority of my suitcase space and have been known to take up even more space on the way home. Obviously, I love sunglasses. And handbags. And shoes. And dresses. Ok. You get the point.
