It Backs a Rack

A backless bra. Why didn't someone invent it sooner?

Halloween in March

Reminds me of Minnie Mouse.

For some reason, fish come to mind...

I quite like this jacket/dress.

In the funny business.

Rubix cube print!

This jacket intrigues me. Can you unbutton the red-lined flaps?

I'd wear it.

Love the sass. Grr-rar.

Remedy This

Dear friends,

If you lost ro-sham & had to wear this American Apparel pocket romper, how would you make it your own in five or less ways?

I think I'd:
+ add on a slouchy, chunky gray sweater
+ wear black tights underneath
+ belt the waist
+ teeter on some chunky heels

The Week Unzipped

Can you believe it's March 23 already? This week:

+ According to a poll conducted by the British department store Debenham's, the number one fashion invention is the Wonderbra. While I don't think that specifically the Wonderbra is the number fashion invention, I do think that bras in general are pretty helpful. What do you think?

+ Apparently clothing company Edoc is producing a line of t-shirts based on a mystery story. Pricey but still a cool idea.

+ Ali Michael, how old are you? I'm pretty sure she's shy of being eighteen, but wowee zowee, check out this month's Italian Vogue editorial. She really is gorgeous.

+ "It's not what you know, it's WHO you know." Unfortunately, it's pretty true stuff, especially in the fashion industry.

+ Check out's top ten new designers.

+ Any Kevin Devine fans out there? Check out this off-topic, but still amusing video of him dressed up as an Easter Mogwai. Happy Easter! :)

Into: Knuckle Dusters

Where can I find affordable versions of these dainty knuckle dusters?
They are lovely. And suppose it would hurt if someone tried to hurt you.

Of High Mirit

Adrien Broom Photography

I love perusing the nooks and crannies of it's as if there are secrets waiting to be uncovered. If you've gotten a hold of this month's issue of Nylon, you may have read a blurb featuring the designer Mirit Weinstock.

For her Spring/ Summer 08 collection, she asked five random photographers via Flickr to take photos of her garmets. No rules, no boundaries, no requirements. I think that creativity unleashed turns out to be a pretty wonderful animal... (My personal favorite are Lee's photos.)

Check out her site to learn more and to see the photos.

Darlin' Won't You Let Me Cut Your Hair?

For the brave and the bored, here is my hair time line.


I've pretty much had long hair for most of my life. This photo was taken on July 11th.
Apparently, a couple days later I a) chopped it off , b) added a reddish tint to it, and c) refused to take a good picture.

I pretty much held onto my haircut until October of '04. That's when I decided to get my bob on. Pictured below is me being a silly little fifteen year old.
Around Christmas time the bangs grew out, so I kept them side swept.


No big changes until June '05. I jumped back to square one and chopped a lot of my hair off.
A couple months later (August?), I defined my hair a little, going a little shorter in the back and longer in the front.
Later that month, I was bored with the lack of color so I got light brown hi-lights... I was really happy with this hair cut.

By the same month next year, my hair was close to getting back to its original black state. I didn't let that happen and decided to get blonde highlights and bleach the bottom half. Here's little wannabe me with a sad ponytail (back & front views).
This is what it looked like down (also back & front views).
Homecoming in October.


Come January, my hair grew out a little and unfortunately started puffing out only at mid-length (that was a bad explanation, but I think you can see for youself).
Don't remember what I did, but by April it wasn't that bad.
Later in April, Senior Prom came around. I cried this day because I asked my hairdresser for a head of curls and obviously didn't get that... I ended up being at peace with what I had, though. It also didn't hurt that yours truly was prom queen.
When I went to college in the fall, my awesome hall mates bought me this wig that I was obsessed with.
I braved a lot of ugly stages and finally let my hair grow back again (all the highlights by now are mostly gone). This was in November.


I chopped it all off last week.
Initially, I looked like I was a 12 year old boy. However, I've been getting comments like: "You look like Peter Pan!" (that's a good thing to me) and "You look older!" (which is super super nice to hear after everyone's said that I look like I'm 14).

Fin. For now. :)

+ Check out's top ten list of Fall faces. My favorites from the list include Jourdan Dunn, Malin Ones (both shown above), and Kamila Filipcikova. Do you agree with the list?

+ also compiled a list of their top ten favorite Fall 2008 RTW collections. Click here to find out who made the list. (Sorry to give it away, but how on Earth did Marc's uninspired collection make it on the list?!)

+ posts about what to wear to a job interview. I think I'm going to keep this link for future reference.

+ I bet some of you (if not all) are familar (if not obsessed) with The Style Bubble. Well, guess what? She made it onto the World's 50 Most Powerful Blogs! Awesome.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Me + This Necklace = Match Made in Heaven

I am coveting this super sick necklace by Oath (also on their quirky line up: bobby pin earrings). Come on baby, light my fire.

P.S. I would apologize for my cheesy post titles but I'm not really sorry about bad puns.

The Lion, The Witch, & the Wardrobe Remix

I've been MIA from Wardrobe Remix lately, so I decided to play a little catch up. Can I just say: Hot damn! -these people really know how to be effortlessly cool.

I'm digging the slouch factor in 2-5-0-3-0-1-now-in-1 0437's ensemble. Equalling loving her Threadless tee. C'mon, how cool is she?
Another effortlessly cool outfit put together by jasmin a.

The Clothes Horse is a given. I was particularly taken by the bold colors- check out that sweet sweet floral print. Sometimes floral prints really remind me of ugly couch covers, but not in this case.

Loou really knows how to pull of those shorts.

Wow, never have I encountered such a classy stunner. I like the clean, white stockings against the shiny shoes.

For some reason, today I'm associating effortlessly cool with trousers and scarfs.

I am a sucker for all the above: a crisp white blouse, the peter pan collar, the paper bag skirt, cute as a button hair, and of course, the shoes-- which are, by the way, not the same!

Can You Handle It?

It's already a hectic week. Forgive me- I don't believe that this post is a filler. I really did find this man intriguing!

The Week Unzipped

Short and sweet this week...

+ As if I don't already have a hard time walking in heels, Miu Miu has to torture me by making these funky stunners unaccessible in a lot of ways (ie. affording them, capability of me walking in them, etc.).

+ Remember Jaslene from ANTM fame? See her strutting down the Project Runway runway.

+ Confession: I can't swim. In fact, I'm sure I look like a total idiot even attempting to. I found myself living vicariously through these photos.

Hurrah! Not only am I a thrilled fan, I'm also a proud mama. Thanks for sticking with me, everyone. :)

Nose Goes

I really want to try CB's I Hate Perfume. The quirky scents, which range from "In the Library" (I'm quite curious about this particular one) to "Memory of Kindness" apparently smell exactly like their name. Christoper Brosius' perfumes are alcohol and gender free. He writes, "While certain of my scents are more popular with one or the other, I do not define scent by gender. I prefer to let people choose for themselves." Also, he encourages layering the scents-- I wonder what "In the Summer Kitchen" and "Winter 1972" would smell like together...
