Studi! Studi!

Finals week has hit and the student body is a jittery mess of venti frapps & highlighter flash-cards

I stumbled across these pictures during a spell of Attention Deficit Disorder while avoiding my Italian cram sesh.  

Pretty sure if I had Kloe Kardashian's digs I'd be a little more enthused about settling in for a night of freetranslator.com. No?

Real OG.

Dollar day at Salvation Army did not disappoint. I came away with a bag full of fabulous steals including this classic black felt fedora.  Part of me wishes men still wore these every day... 
a la sexy prohibition era gangster. 


Add hot rollers, brick lipstick, and winged liquid liner and voila! Vintage vixen.

glam-crush

I must say it was love at first sight... even in a long blonde wig with elf ears.  
When I saw the fall/winter ad campaign for chinese lux label Me & City I felt the same love-struck buzz.

Dear little miss Miranda Kerr, 
did you really need to be a VS angel AND pull this one off the market?  Some girls just have it all!

Smart, chic minimalism at its finest.








Gotta love the girl.  
See her FINAL collection (Autumn/Winter 2010) for Topshop here.  

I would show the most recent campaign video but I love this one more.  Totally gorg.  
An oldie but a goodie.

give it a whirl.












Anja Rubik, Anna Jagodzinska, Kasia Struss, Magdalena Fracowiak and Monika Jagaciak by Cameron Krone for Viva! Moda, November 2010

Loving the resurge of flirty flared skirts made modern by cutouts, leather, and statement heels.  So twirl worthy!  The converging of childhood ballerina princess fantasies and the more chic sophisticated girl you've grown into.

Day-Dreaming about...








My aspiration is to one day have a real place to store the stacks, piles, boxes, and hangers of clothing that envelop my teensy bedroom!  A glamorous girl can dream

Mr. Big: We're getting married. Should we get you a diamond?

Carrie: No no, Just get me a really big closet.

Portland Mornings.

This is the lovely view from my little Cosmopolitan Gem's new Studio apartment in the morning.  We listened to jazz and had a little impromptu photo shoot before heading out for a stroll with cups of hot coffee!  

I'm missing home and all my dear ones already...
