recreate



mr. newton + my own eztextiles collage

some of you may remember that when i first told you guys about EZ TEXTILES...
my friend helped to launch the site, which is a dream for fashion fiends + designers!

it is the world's largest online library of production-ready, royalty-free digital textile designs, which makes the once time consuming + costly process of buying + converting textiles designs, now a quick + easy process. subscribers to the new website can freely search, visualize + build personalized design collections for apparel, home furnishing + virtually any other creative project.

i finally got a chance to play around on the site + got lost for hours creating different designs!
i decided to take the ├╝ber inspiring streetstyle shot above + attempt to recreate it using the EZtextiles system-- being on there is seriously amazing + addictive.

make sure to try out the SITE with the free trial subscription! oh and check out their BLOG too!
if you make any cool recreations or designs of your own- share them in the comments!

les petites f/w 2010

Pink Pony



i was extremely touched when RALPH LAUREN asked me to be a part of
the 10 year anniversary celebration of their PINK PONY campaign.
PINK PONY was started to help raise awareness of cancer + to raise funds for research.
as some of you may know, my father was recently diagnosed with cancer so this
endeavor + my choice to be a part of this campaign is a personal one.

100 bloggers were asked to help raise awareness by photographing
themselves wearing the classic RL polo bearing the pink polo icon.
my photo is above, but make sure to check out all the fab bloggers involved HERE.

I hope you will join us in this fight against cancer and support PINK PONY!
There are many ways to get involved:

- shop the PINK PONY collection- 10% of proceeds support the fund.

- a charity buzz auction will run on CHARITYBUZZ from October 1st to October 21st.
100% of proceeds from the aucution will benefit the Pink Pony Fund

- text PINKPONY to 501501 to automatically donate $10.

- spread the word!

thanks guys! this really means a lot!

ADA

ADA

I love the ethnic references in Ada's look: the velvet jacket, the tassels and the bowler. I can't place my finger on the precise inspiration, but I know it works. Have any ideas?

style crush: gemma arterton

Michael Kors S/S 2011








attending the Michael Kors show was a definite highlight of nyfw.
i went with Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere + had a great time-- she is a doll btw!
it was fun to people watch in a crowd full of fashion's elite while waiting for the show to start.
the collection was classic + the soundtrack was great- we were dancing in our seats :)
i adored the pops of jewel tones (especially in the textured skirts) + loved the belts.
my favorite look from the collection was the gray sweater combined with the beaded pants ♥
the highlight tho was seeing karlie kloss do her signature walk with that smirk on her face.
had some camera issues, but i managed to get some iphone shots which i mixed in...
if you haven't already make sure to check out the whole collection HERE.

Girls just wanna have fun

ECESUKAN

The song, is one of my favorite dance tunes. And once it comes on, it usually means that I can be found high kicking somewhere on the dance floor. And no, alcohol does not have to be involved. And no, I'm not a particularly good dancer. In fact I've been told on two different occasions that: you're not a very good dancer, but boy, you really look like you're having fun. Hey, if it brings joy to others.... When I saw Ece Sukan of Vogue Turkey in this Preen dress, the song immediately popped into my head. Pan down to her mile-high legs, and I am panicking. My high kick is rendered a mere skip, flicker of the legs. But she sure is inspiring. Tonight I'll be in my bed room with any hot pink article of clothing I can find. Well I guess it will have to be in my hotel room, in my new Prada sweater as I'm at the airport heading to Paris!!! Viva la Francia!!!

derek lam s/s 2011


























i was soooo upset not being to make it to the DEREK LAM show this season...
fortunately, i was invited to the showroom to check out the collection first hand!
of course i immediately fell in love when i saw the collection online,
but getting to see every look up close + personal made me fall even more in love ♥
it is amazing how much of the details are missed just seeing it on the runway.
for those of you who haven't seen the whole collection check out a great video of it HERE.
anyway, just wanted to share some of my favorite looks from my visit.
i know there are a lot of pics-- i just couldn't narrow it down!
hope you enjoy!
