the first lady looks AMAZING in this marc jacobs fall 2010 dress. so great to see such a stylish first lady again--we all miss jackie o. michelle obama is no laura bush (thank god on so many levels) and she continues to impress me as time goes on. keep up the good work, mrs. obama!


"I think New York women have such style, and it’s not about money, it’s just the look and the pace and the activity. And in L.A., they’re very beautiful and they all look exactly alike, which is good because if we go to war they’re all in uniform. " --Joan Rivers ♥

Alexander McQueen Spring 2011 RTW

on february 11, 2010, the world lost a brilliant mind. nine days after the death of his mother, lee alexander mcqueen hung himself in his home in london. his funeral was attended by the likes of sarah jessica parker, bjork and daphne guinness. i found myself very emotional when i knew of his passing--almost as if i had lost a friend. maybe this makes me a headcase, but i think that it goes to show that clothes do resonate in emotions for some people who are passionate about them. sarah burton, mcqueen's long-time assistant, was named the new creative director after mcqueen's passing, and i can think of no way to better continue his essence than appointing someone who has trained and worked with mcqueen for many years.

mcqueen's tendency to evoke these kinds of feelings in people came from the magic that were his designs. his ability to construct pieces that simultaneously enforced structure while maintaining femininity is unrivaled by any other brand. i absolutely love the dresses he crafted, especially ones with impeccably symmetrical patterns. 

Rest In Peace Lee, you are missed more than you know.

Jimmy Choo

Jimmy Choo
Jimmy Choo by AmandaQBerrill featuring chanel jewelry

while browsing the internet this afternoon in a feverish attempt to further procrastinate my internship paper (7-10 pages... wtf?!?), i came across a jimmy choo sky patent hobo bag giveaway. yes please! the requirement was to "like" the site's facebook page, and then post on their wall what you would pair with said bag. so to hopefully differ my entry from others', i opted for a visual description rather than a written one. i love love love this bag, i think it can go with so many things. i paired it with various jimmy choo heels, and i would rob someone for those embellished wedges. i also love vintage jewelry, and i was so excited to find this vintage chanel bracelet. i want this bag tremendously. fingers crossed everyone.

what a whirlwind these past few weeks have been. an extended thanksgiving break, PRII campaigns, and boyfriend visits have really filled up my blogging schedule. hardly ironic how my favorite season of the year is always the most hectic. we have some catching up to do, readers. but for now

i am in desperate need of a chunky knit jet-black scarf.
