Topshop Tuesday

Topshop Tuesday, Fall Edition

  • These are my top picks from Topshop this week.  I need a new pair of knee-high boots.  These are perfect because I can dress them up or down and the heel is thick enough to walk in.  
  • That red dress is calling my name! 
  • Can't go wrong with stripes.  I love stripes.  I can wear this with a structured bag for a classic look.  
  • There's something about those ankle booties that I'm diggin.  
  • I haven't found my perfect peplum top until now.  Lace makes it even girlier.  
  • Paisley and I go way back. =)
  • That bag screams Fall.  Love it.  
Which is your favorite piece?

Let's Experiment!

My hair is what I call blahh.  It's my own fault cause I don't take the necessary time to style it.  I've always been a wash and air dry kinda gal.  This Fall I want to try something different.  Here are some ideas I found. Tell me what you think.

I want to try the sock bun wrap.

100 things (Part 4)

Hello! I know I haven't blogged in a while but it's been carazy busy.  I'm very excited because I I finally received my new camera as an early birthday gift (thanks dad).  After weighing my options, I leaned toward a Canon Rebel T3.  Can't wait to post some new photos.  Here is my fourth installment of the 100 things series of my favorite things that make me happy.

Animal Print, Lace and Oxfords

Marc Jacobs Fall 2011  Definitely in the market for a lace dress this season.lace oxfordsOxfords  oxfordszebra jacketlace lace lace laceFall animal print

                 Navy Lace     Lace Oxfords     Printed Oxfords     Zebra     Black Lace     Cheetah

This post is dedicated to the Independent Fashion Bloggers (IFB) project#61.  The challenge was to create a post detailing my inspiration for Fall fashion (my favorite season).  Uncommon and IFB are working together to create a Fall inspired IPhone case.  Check out the details here.  This is my first time participating in any IFB project.  Wish me luck =)

  • Animal print is my all time favorite trend for any season.  It's become a classic.  Both zebra and cheetah coats in these photos excite me.  They're fashion forward yet you can pair them with anything and look chic.
  • I chose lace and oxfords because I like the feminine vs masculine vibe of the neutral oxfords in the second photo.   Oxfords are a must have for Autumn.  I will pair them with dresses, trousers, jeans and skirts this Fall.  The lace gives a feminine twist to a otherwise masculine look.  Fashion is about mixing trends, prints and texture.  It's what makes style fun.    
  • Just as oxfords can be girlified, lace can be toughened up by adding the right accessories and shoes.  A black long sleeved lace dress is on my Fall list for holidays.

This is needed on a Monday morning.  

  • If you woke up on the bright side of the bed, smile, compliment someone, take pictures,call your best friend...spread your happy.
  • If you didn't want to get out of bed, try something new today.  See a movie, take a whole lunch hour and actually enjoy it.  Do some online shopping (I'm a bad influence).  Do anything that makes you happy.  It'll cure your crap mood.  

Have a wonderful week full of random moments, smiles and love =)

Rock Steady

No Doubt is one of my favorite bands.  So, you know I was ecstatic to hear their new single, Settle Down.  The first time I listened to it I felt iffy cause I didn't really connect to it.  Then I watched their segment on E! and listening to them express what the lyrics are about made me want to give it another try.  Pressed play and the second time was the charm.  I am in love with this song.  Good vibes and strength is what I take from it.  Can't wait to see them on tour next year =)

For those of you who like No Doubt, what's your fave song??

CatWoman: Leather Lust


This week I saw Dark Knight Rises.  It was amazing!  Storyline, action, and costumes were pretty great.  At first, I wasn't sure Anne Hathaway would pull off Catwoman.  I was presently surprised.  She brought a deeper level of character and charm to Selina Kyle.  I won't spoil with details...watch the movie.

Read this interesting article about the character of Catwoman played by Anne Hathaway. Warning! Spoilers included. 

I usually obsess over a movie for a while if I really enjoy it.  So, I thought it would be cool to post ideas on how to incorporate a lil leather into your wardrobe...
