Where The Wild Things Are x Opening Ceremony

When I heard that Opening Ceremony was collaborating with the movie Where The Wild Things Are, I was pretty skeptical. I mean, have you seen the trailer? It looks awesome, but no fashion to be seen. Well, I guess that I didn't see what Opening Ceremony saw. This collection is AWESOME. Weird, yes, but awesome. Just look at this stuff:
Douglas Motorcycle Jacket $565
Douglas Military Jacket $635
Bull Shawl Jacket $635
Ira Full Skirt $290
Carol Flare Coat $575

Alexander Mini Skirt $220

I want everyone of these pieces, but they wouldn't really be appropriate for Southern California weather I think...
And BONUS! All the pieces are made of faux fur so they are animal friendly!
If anyone buys something from this collection let me know because I would love to see it!
Have a great Tuesday everyone xoxo

Better Days

Kind of outfit post! Actually more like shoe post-ish. This was from last week when I had my migraine and I was just kind of chilling and laying low.

Shirt: Forever 21
Jeans: Current/Elliot
Shoes: Charlotte Ronson

I am still trying to decide if I like these shoes....I can't return then so I better like them! They were uber-on sale at Shopbop and I just wish they had them in an 8 instead of the 8.5 I got. I practically broke my ankle walking around in them but I think when I tighten the straps they fit waaaay better and I won't die.

Also, I am really into making jewelry lately and I saw that Carly over at Chic Steals did a DIY of the Tom Binns rhinestone earrings that I wanted to try.  Here are the real ones:

And here are mine:

I didn't follow her directions at all so mine came out a little different but I am very happy with the result! I had to change them up a few times but eventually I got them how I wanted.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!!

Giveaway Time

Wow, it has been forever since I last posted!! It is not my fault, though, because I have been out with a migraine.  It is weird, usually my migraines last one day, but this one just kept going and going no matter what I did.  And I thought that was so odd...then I find out that my lovely mother tricked me into drinking DECAF coffee every morning, instead of my usual caffeinated kind (the good stuff), so my 5 day long migraine was due to lack of caffeine.  Unfortunately, I am now weaned off of caffeine, and had some diet coke which then brought the headache back, so I must say good bye to my beloved:

But honestly, now I know what it must be like to detox from drugs or something.  I literally thought I was going to die.  I have had headaches almost every day since but they have been getting less intense, so hopefully by not drinking any caffeine they will be gone.  But, as usual, my mother is the source of all my pain....

Anyway, now on to fun stuff.  Yellow Goat is having a giveaway where she is giving TWO $50 gift cards to her etsy shop.   She has the CUTEST things there, one of my favorites is the Sugar and Spice necklace...so cute!
All you have to do is fill out a short survey about her blog and you're in! Enter here!

Savvy Mode is having an AMAZING giveaway for this beautiful black diamond necklace...Diamonds!!  Enter here!

And finally, Dream Sequins is having an AMAZING giveaway a Coco Chanel book! Soooooo awesome!  Enter here!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!  I will try and get back to regular posting asap! :)

"...One Man is a World in Miniature" - Albert Pike

I am a complete sucker for anything miniature. That is why I was obsessed when Sephora came out with all of their sampler packs of different products. BUT, at $40 for about 6-8 samples, I didn't really feel like buying them. So imagine my joy when I was browsing Sephora.com (which I do on a regular basis haha) when I saw that the samplers were on sale for half their price! Instead of ordering online, I decided to check out my local Sephora because I wanted them right away instead of waiting a week, and picked up 2 of them:

They are AWESOME. There are so many cute little things in them, and at $20 TOTALLY worth the money.

This Perricone Skin Smoother alone is worth the $20 paid for one. The sample is a lot bigger than I thought it would be, and it will probably last for a few weeks.

And this cute organic blush is a really pretty gold-y color that makes your cheeks look so dewy.

And best of all, everything fits neatly into a nice small package!!

Now I am off to work today, Happy Monday everyone!!

Project: Runway

Today was the Jillian Lewis RTW Spring 2010 show in NY, and since my friend works for the PR firm that put it on, he got to be there and I am super jealous, BUT I decided to write about it.  
I was a big fan of Jillian when she was on PR a few season ago.  I thought all of her designs were so beautiful, wearable, and feminine.  It seems like she has continued along that vein with her new collection.  Here is a taste of some of my favorite looks:

The LBD: Here is her beautiful version of the sheer black dress trend, and while this basic style has been seen before, I love the detail on the sides and think that this silhouette is gorgeous. (Btw, don't the model's shoes look exactly like the ones I wore here?)
Ok, basically I am obsessed with this model's hair, and the dress is cute too!
This is a classic Jillian Lewis coat.  I LOVE IT.
Awesome shiny blazer and awesome leggings. 
This dress is amazing. I love the color and all the detail work.
Hey look!  It's that girl from Bravo's Make Me A Supermodel!  Haha anyone else watch that show??
Those leggings are soooo cool.  I want them.
Cute casual look.  I really like the design she made on the tanks, she has it in black, too. 
All pictures from WWD.com
I so wish I could have been there and am jealous of everyone at NYFW right now.  Hopefully one day I can be there as well!

Btw, I am sooo excited because tomorrow night I am going to a special screening of "The September Issue" a whole day (! haha) before it is released!!  I am so excited and can't wait to write about it, I have heard such great things!

Gone With The Wind

Happy Labor Day everyone!! Today my best friend C and I went out to lunch because we haven't seen each other in weeks and her birthday is in 3 days so I had to give her my present!

As you can see it was super super windy...which made the weather cooler FINALLY, but I had a tough time keeping my hair out of my face!

I'm wearing my new Twenty8Twelve shorts that I talked about that I ordered from Gilt. They finally came last week after about a month. I don't think it's really fair that they make you pay $12 for shipping and then you get it a month later...kind of a rip off if you ask me...but oh well, I love my shorts!

And how cute is C's hat?? I am obsessed with it and want one, but I think my head is too big sadly :(

Now I have to go finish up some homework for school tomorrow, have a great last few hours of the holiday weekend everyone!

Confessions of a Shopaholic

Ok first off, let me apologize for my absence...the past two weeks have been CRAZY busy, with school starting and I was dogsitting and had no internet...it was ridiculous!
But now I am settled into my school routine (unfortunately) and can fully say that this semester will hopefully be pretty good!  I love all my teachers and (most of) my classes.

Anyway, tonight was my mom's birthday and so my family and I all went out to dinner, and it was sooo hot that I needed to wear something comfortable.  I didn't wear these shoes to dinner just because we were at a country club and I didn't feel like getting too dressy and wearing heels, but I just bought them last week and am IN LOVE.
Aren't they super cute??

I kind of want to wear them all the time.
I also do not know what has gotten in to me lately, but I have been shopping and spending money waaay more than usual.  Maybe it's because I am working more so I like to treat myself, but I have bought three pairs of shoes in three weeks, which is usually unheard of for me!  Now I have my eye on a pair of over the knee boots but I don't know if I want them in suede or leather...any suggestions?

Hope everyone has a great long weekend and I promise to become a better blogger from now on! :)

oh  BTW:
Does anyone know how to make it so the whole picture fits on the page?? For some reason some of mine show the whole picture, but the shoe ones get cut off! Help!
