Fishtail braids have always been a mystery to me.

The Ultimate in Cool

Via Studded Hearts
Erin Wasson looks like the epitomy of cool in this shoot, so much so that I can't help wanting to be her just a little bit every time I look through these pictures. What's even more interesting is that a few of the shots had a little bit of a Carrie-Bradshaw feel to them (Maybe it was the cigarette held nonchalantly in one hand...?).

After seeing this movie up on the homepage of Bloglovin for a few weeks now, I finally decided to check it out. I am a huge fan of Aimee's blog, Song of Style, and love her style. This video is adorable!

Also, I'm in love with this top:


If this top were mine, I'd pair it with a pair of flowy pants that tighten around the ankles, or a pair of high-waisted shorts.

Sunshine, Bright Colors, Beautiful Clothes

Via Threadsence LookBook
Looks from the Threadsence Summer 2010 LookBook. I love the bright pops of color...and the high-socks-with-shoes look.

Giselle? Is that you?

Via Studded Hearts

Roberto Cavalli recently released their ad campaign for Fall/Winter 2010, featuring Giselle Bundchen...I think. Is it just me, or was her face insanely retouched? Considering Giselle is one of the most successful models (not to mention one of the few remaining models that is a household name) of the moment, I'm not sure why retouching her face beyond recognition was so necessary. Face aside, the photos are quite beautiful, especially with the fire in the background.

I love photo shoots that look wearable. I love the lace shoes, heart tights, and knee-high ruffled socks. Oh, and the large bow.

I Heart Ronson for JC Penney


I'm pleasantly surprised about Charlotte Ronson's line for JC Penney. It's actually completely shocking to me that anything this nice could come from JC Penney, but then again, I am judging it off of the only JC Penney's that I ever visit (A poorly maintained location in rural Maine), so maybe that's not the best example for comparison. Anyway, highlights from this collection are the tights, leopard print shoes (and the black ones, for that matter), the shorts in the second picture, and the floral skirts. There's actually not too much to dislike about this collection, although I can't say that I would wear most of these items the way they're styled. But hey, if they look good individually, I'm willing to look past the styling. Check out the collection for yourself here:

Catching up...

Via The Sartorialist

This post is more about catching up on a few random pictures I've collected over the past few weeks. As for the dress pictured above, it was love at first sight.


Speaking of dresses I'm in love with... this dress by Mango looks like the perfect summer dress, but also looks like it could be worked into your fall/winter wardrobe as well. Ah, it is so beautiful!

Dreaming in Plastic

Sooo cool. I love the mix of plastic with reality.

Ah, Youth.

Via Studded Hearts
I love the effortless and carefree feel of this shoot. Fashion shoots at times can be so serious and extreme (which, don't get me wrong, I love), so it's refreshing when one comes along that's more fun and keeps it simple. I also love that the photos' primary focus doesn't appear to be the fashion and styling, and that the woman being dressed so well is just an afterthought. Okay, so I could go on and on, but I'll just end it by saying I love these pictures!

Chanel Iman for The Block

This photo shoot (shot by Doug Inglish) speaks for itself-it's beautiful, magical, and straight out of a fairy tale, one that I wish I could have read as a child.

Gary Pepper Vintage

During my usual Drink-my-coffee-while-simultaneously-catching-up-with-the-20-blogs-I-follow routine, I stumbled upon a video of behind the scenes footage for a shoot by Gary Pepper Vintage. It was an adorably candid video that followed one very well styled girl throughout the photo shoot, and is definitely worth a view, if only to listen to the song they used (which I HAVE to find out the name & artist of!). Check it out here:
For those that love the styling and clothing, check out to follow their blog. Lastly, a quick look through their lookbook is highly recommended. I really, really love that delicate pink lace dress in the second picture.

Drum Roll Please....


These might actually be the most beautiful shoes I have ever seen. The alligator patterned leather, the bright blue heel backing, the mural on the heel...there is nothing about these shoes that I don't love.

Also, the picture below is from the Harper's Bazaar Japan August 2010 issue, and while the shoot with Patricia Schmid was wonderfully decadent, this picture caught my eye because of its optical illusion-esque effect.

Video Ad?

Rodarte recently released a video for S/S 2010 line, done by Jason Last + art director Jaime Rubiano. When it comes to art, I love anything that strays drastically from the norm. This video definitely fits that description, and it's worth a view. This video does raise an interesting what-if though: What if all fashion lines released a video for their collections, along with the normal magazine-run ad campaign? Showing the clothes in a video shows them in a different light than is seen in a fashion show, and at the same time gives the clothes more life and movement than a picture. Something interesting to consider.

Visit to see the video.

So Inspiring

1. These are stunning. 2. Besides that, I'm speechless.
