I'm doing it for the thrill

So I FINALLY got to see the September Issue - it wasn't scheduled in Michigan but some how one of the locally owned theaters got hold of it! It was absolutely fantastic. I adore Grace Coddington, her work is phenomenal. Her past modeling pictures were exquisite - and she has such an eye for styling. I loved to seeing so much of Anna, its nice to know that behind those fierce sunglasses lies a real and genuine person. I would definitely recommend this movie to everyone - regardless if you're interested in fashion or not. It's gives you a fantastic view of the industry, and the sheer influence of Anna's views is unbelievable. Its definitely on my to buy list.

I've changed my polish for the fall (its getting pretty chilly here)

I'm wearing Vendetta by Chanel - its a lovely shade of dark shimmery purple.

I bought a feather skirt yesterday, and I am SOOOO in love with it. You'll see it soon I'm sure!

I've got a huge econ exam this week - so I'll be back in a few daysss!!

you and me we'll just fly

( Zara top, Target Vest, Vintage skirt, Crown Vintage heels )

I know you guys are sick to death of seeing these shoes, but I'm completely smitten by them. They've practically been glued to my feet ever since I had bought them. I also know that you guys are probably really sick of seeing this Target jacket as well, but it's such a great layering piece, and makes everything look good. I should be going shopping this weekend, hopefully I'll finally hunt down a great faux fur vest!

I've also been getting really into green polish - both pastel like Chanel Jade, and a rich emerald like OPI's Here today Aragon tomorrow from the Espana collection. Hopefully I'll be able to snag both of those on my shopping trip. Right now my nails are a nice shade of charcoal in OPI's You don't Know Jacques. It's starting to chip though, which means I must change the color!

Onto LFW news, I cannot get enough of the Amanda Wakely SS10 collection! It's very modern cleopatara. The necklaces are amazing!

Oh, and ps. if you enjoy reading my blog, it would really mean the world to me if you could follow me on bloglovin' or twitter. <3

Hello Fall!

(Topshop dress, F21 Sunglasses and necklace, H&M belt & tights, Aldo heels, Banana Republic Bangle)

I cannot tell you how excited I am that summer is officially over. For the past two weeks, I've been yearning for all things fall: crisp mornings, hot cider, colorful leaves, chunky scarves & light jackets. No offense summer, but fall just provides more sartorial options! And in celebration of fall, I plan to buy myself a pair of black bootie wedges a la Ann Demeulemeester. I'll let you know how my quest goes...

grand finale!!

And I present to you the final edition of my NYFW coverage! I hope you enjoy your weekends - mines going to be filled with lots of schoolwork. Already! Ridiculous.

Sorry my fashion week coverage has come to a halt - I'm so caught up with school at the moment, but I promise I'll be back soon with my favorites from the rest of fashion week! I'm so bummed that I'm not there right now, but I really can't miss school either. Oh well, hopefully one day I'll be able to experience its wonders.

Here's a quick outfit update, I know my tiny room is not very scenic, but its the best I muster! Sorry these posts have been so sparse, I'm absolutely swamped with work from school! More later, I promise!

In other news, the Christopher Kane collection for Topshop is absolutely phenomenal! Too bad there's only ONE in the US!!

arent those leggings to DIE for!?!?!

Day three: Adam, Alex, & Jeremy

Day Three was absolutely fantastic! I love all the sparkle at Adam,Alexander Wang, Richard Chai, and that sequined swimsuit at VPL. I'm also really into those silky pants, I desperately need to get my hands a pair. I'm also very impressed with all the footwear on the runways - the studded booties at A.Wang are perfection, and the colorful strappy numbers at VPL are the perfect touch to any summer ensemble. I hope you guys enjoy today's collage! Have a great Sunday!


Here I am, as promised, with the second installment of my NYFW recap, sorry its up so late, I didn't get up till like... noon today. I love those days. Its a long one, but here it is!

I absolutely love the layering at Rag&Bone, it's definitely something I'll be experimenting with this fall. The sheer ruched leggings at Charlotte are fantastic, they're so girly but the studs toughen it up! The feathers at Jason Wu are just pure genius, I want one of those pieces RIGHT NOW. I'm also a huge fan of the sheer flowy dusters we've been seeing at Vena Cava and now at Erin W. The shoulders at Preen are phenomenal, and the cutouts are Yigal are just plain sick.

Also I'm trying to catch up with my outfit posts, I wore this a few days ago when it was raining, and thus, chilly. It only reminds me that I need some good layering pieces. Ugh.

See you again tomorrow!!

Happy NYFW!!

I spent the majority of the day moping about - absolutely miserable at the fact that I'm in Michigan, not New York. Ugh. College. I'm so excited for it to be over. Not only did I miss the first day of fashion week, but I also missed out on Fashion's Night Out. Which sounds like just about the coolest event ever.

Like an addict going through withdrawal, I could not keep myself away from Twitter, constantly checking back to get my hourly dose of NYFW & Fashion's Night Out happenings. Thank you fashion bloggers for twittering, I'm totally living vicariously through you guys. Sighs. Its so sad to think that I was there less than a month ago.

When I was finally done with my self-pity, I decided to make it my goal to give my readers DAILY updates during NYFW. I hope to get looks from the major collections that walked everyday. It'll make me feel like I'm there.

Thus without further ado, I present you a recap of day one of NYFW!

Tune in tomorrow for more updates!

fall florals

(F21 Cardigan, Topshop Dress, BCBG heels, Club Monaco Necklace)

I know that fall florals are a bit cliche, but I really like the idea of transitional looks, and I do think summery prints and thick knits are a great combo for September. I desperately need some long cardigans and chunky knits, but I'm currently lacking funds. It's very annoying at the moment. I picked up this frock a couple of months ago in nyc, and I recently spotted it on Sienna Miller!

I absolutely ADORE Essie's Neon Collection and I thought it was only fitting to celebrate my last week of summer with electric yellow nails. I LOVEEE the shade, I would totally wear it all the time!

I was bored with my very outgrown "lob" so I decided to get a cut to change things up. I've always adored Gweneth's blunt angled bob and I finally had to courage to go for it! Although it is very upsetting that my outgrown bangs weren't long enough to complete the look. Oh well. You win some you lose some.

Currently Channeling

I was listening to Madonna's new single, Celebration, and I instantly had the urge to wear bright pink shadow and backcomb the hell out of my hair. I love the Alexander McQueen shoes with the blue polish - its perfect!(thanks Jak & jill for the amazing photo). I don't know if many people saw the Topshop Unique collection but it's probably my favorite show of the f/w 09 season - those sequined harem pants are absolutely genius! There's also the cover from Madonna's first album, which was was absolutely divine, and she's still got it 20 years later!

zipping past

(H&M jacket, top and jeans, Aldo Shoes, Dior Sunglasses)

My friend got me these phenomenal shoes for my birthday and I wore this outfit to a lovely brunch. I cannot get enough of them even though they're ridiculously high and I have difficulties walking - oh well, practice makes perfect!

I just realized that I'm like a walking advertisement for H&M - I should go into H&M rehab, but its just so difficult!!! That place is heaven for college students lacking funds! It also doesn't help that their fall collection is amazing.

So heres a short rundown of my current must-haves for fall:
1. Thigh High Boots (like Rodarte)
2. Faux Fur Coat
3. Pointy Shoulders (a la Balmain)
4. Thick Knitted Tube Scarf
