Hanging on the Telephone

Today I dropped my phone in water....while I am attempting to drying it out, I am pretty sure it is gone from this world. The timing was not great (when is losing your phone ever convenient?), but luckily my two year contract just ended so it was time for me to get a new phone. I caved purchased an iphone. What is the most important decision an iPhone purchaser needs to make? What case do I get! Here are the top contenders:


Help me choose! If you have any suggestions of ones I would like, let me know! 


Something New and Something Blue

Alexander Wang's Resort collection is out....words can not describe my excitement! Pops of color and print this time around...I can't get over the leopard print and the blue.

If you aren't obsessed with my selection check out the entire collection. Trust me, you will fall in love: Alexander Wang Resort Collection 2012

Heels and Height

I got hooked on watching re-runs of the Rachel Zoe Project a few weeks ago. It is really easy to watch an entire season in a few weeks because there are only about 8 episodes per season. Now I have seen the show before and I tend to go back and forth on liking Rachel Zoe (her assistants on the other hand I fall in love with immediately. Jeremiah, Taylor, Brad, Mandana....). What I will say about her is that she does have a very distinct aesthetic, which I like. When someone has a certain style that I can associate with them I tend to really appreciate signature styles whether I with agree with it or not.
  Rachel Zoe's signature has blossomed into her own brand that encompasses a wide variety of looks that are distinctively her. Watching the show I came to appreciate that no matter (8 months pregnant or not) she wore her "tranny heeled" boots.

It might just be a direct result of having a Rachel Zoe Project marathon, but now I am thinking I want some Rachel Zoe-esque boots:
Audrey Platform Booties - I love the embossed leather

Brigitte Suede Over the Knee Boot - The extreme height of over the knee and the platform is great

Leopard Print & Stripes Are Essential

Finally I have achieved adding a few of my much desired items to my closet.

1) Leopard Print Mohair shoes - booties to exact!

If you read my blog at all you know this has been an obsession for quite some time now. I am going through a phase where I am in love with heels and wedges, especially those that are fall inspired (aka boots). I am 5' 7" so I am lean towards the taller end of women, but nothing gives you more of a power trip than being even taller if you ask me. Can't talk down to me if I am towering over you, now can you?

2) Striped 3/4 Sleeve Shirt - (from Madwell, and basically everything they have is on my "must own" list)

I opted for the blue and white, though it came in a very attractive mustard and white stripe too. I wanted all three color options honestly, but this will do for now.

Want, Need, Love

Recently I saw the movie Like Crazy. Naturally, I was in love with it before I even saw the movie based on the soft lighting and the fantastic movie poster.
Apart from enjoying the movie I want, need, love the clothes in the film...well, like crazy. A series of great sweaters, soft and laid back knits, a line skirts, and floral prints made up the wardrobe for the movie's lead heroine. If you don't love the movie you will love the wardrobe.

Everyone's Favorite

As a self proclaimed lover of white t-shirts (and sometimes, I am a sucker for shirts with sayings): This t-shirt struck a cord with me:
My Favorite Tee

Free People does not normally capture my attention. Often I love their catalog because the shots are beautiful, but overall a lot of the styles are a little too "hippie" for me. I am however in love with this polka dot blouse:

I have been looking for a great polka dot piece (they are everywhere!) and this might be the one to make it to my closet.

Style Influence of the Day: Virgin Suicides

You could watch a Sofia Coppola movie on mute and still think the film is stunning. Coppola's movies are visually stunning and she clearly has a great respect for stylization, which I love.

Here is a tribute to my style influence of the day one of Sofia Coppola's most beloved films Virgin Suicides. The film has been a fashion inspiration for many and continues to be influential even though it has been more than a decade since the film was released. Makes me want to wear floral prints and check out the latest Rodarte line.
Did I mention that it is one of Kirsten Dunst's films? Hahaha, Kiki's style influence is everywhere what can I say. 

You Can Take It With You

A New Bag! I love a new bag discovery, I really do. Stumbled upon this amazing find at Opening Ceremony:
This adorable bag is by Florian Denicourt. I am not familiar with the brand particularly, but I like what I see. The little leather bag tag really sells it for me along with the classic satchel shape. The bags comes in various colors and I suggest you check them out.

Take A Hit

Opened my mailbox today to a lovely surprise: the latest J Crew catalog. I happen to be one of those people that loves catalogs. I know its a little old fashioned, but I am a bit of a print enthusiast.
J Crew always has beautiful images and this season's marketing for their coats that come in wonderful pop colors really stand out.

Brightly colored coats are everywhere this season from the inspiration that came from the fall runway shows. J Crew offers several great silhouettes to classic coat options in a wide variety of pop colors this fall. Not to mention J Crew's coats are at some great price points. Check out these other brightly colored coats that I am obsessed with (yes, they are slightly less affordable).
Celine - I used to have a picture of this coat up at my desk at work. I love everything about it. Never has orange looked so chic. Then again Celine can do no wrong.

Rag and Bone - I have repeatedly posted about this coat. The wool motto jacket has a little bit of edge to it and I love the playfulness of the bright color

The Row - Sleek and chic defines the row and while the brand usually doesn't do bright colors I love this bold yellow coat

She's A Lady

I have a soft spot for Miu Miu. I love their feminine looks, even though usually that is not something I am particularly drawn too. They consistently turn out strong collections and I love the prints they use every time. As you might know already, I also enjoy their ads and spokesperson selection quite a bit. While I am fantasy shopping here are some Miu Miu goods I would enjoy.
 This dress is so lady like I just adore it. Sophisticated, but still feels young and retro.
 I am not one for glitter usually or pink. However, I have seen these shoes in numerious editorials and I can not stop staring at them. Gorgeous to the extreme. Even with out the flash I am obsessed with the curved heel.
 Okay, who really needs this iPhone case like this? I kind of just love how decadent it is and the great pop colors it comes in. Why not?
 Chic and timeless. Love the light color. The bag has an element of utility and gracefulness.
Basic pumps but I love the pop of color and the sude that looks heavenly. 
 This dress is just plain cute and looks like you could wear it every day.
Miu Miu has some of the best prints every season. Love the simple silhouette and the sweet print.
