style inspiration

September 10, 2009


immediately upon seeing these photos i thought, “what perfect style inspiration.” easy, chic pieces styled comfortably and simply. and i couldn’t be more over the moon about those wedges…i don’t think in a million, trillion years could i have too many wedges.

i hopped it on over to zoe and these are calling my name in ways i can’t even handle:

costume national sandy ankle boot

elizabeth and james cut suede wedges

chloe terry wedges

i think that my next vintage shopping excursion will be entitled “the search for the perfect sequin dress.” and then i will wear it constantly and feel fabulously every single time. i also LOVE those pink-stained lips. i don’t know why, but i never feel like i can pull off bright pink lips, although my complection is quite suited for it. in any event, these two models, plus those sick wedges make for some serious beautification.

wildfox — a site i really encourage you all to follow…these two women are sensational stylists and designers, and always have the best imagery for when you just need to look at wondrous things. loooooove them.

it’s allllllllllllllllllllllllmost the weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeekend!

stomping into a new month

June 1, 2009

i’ve been posting a lot of editorials and street style lately, so i thought it was time to do a good shoe post. as a chicagoan, the shoes i wear are highly dependent on our incredibly schizophrenic meteorology. our winters are epic, and can be highly damaging to important footwear, which means that important footwear must stay closeted during the incessantly treacherous weather.

but, now it’s summer. the closets have opened. and the good shoes will reign.

yes, an editorial photo…but how perfect are these boots? i would live in them winter, spring, summer, fall. i’m particularly taken with their slouchy nature, and, of course, the studs. i love a really wide, slouchy, just-under-the-knee boot. they’re so comfy, yet so sexy, and they always slim up the legs. not a bad thing. not a bad thing at all.

can you tell when i get on a blogging roll? late at night, when i start blogging, it’s usually because i haven’t had the time recently, and then i go overboard and blog for hours. those are some of my favorite hours of the week.

just found these photos on wildfox…if i had these shoes, i would never, ever take them off. i would live and breathe for them and wear them until they were dead, and then continue wearing them until it became socially unacceptable. i LOVE them.

wildfox found the images from a piece of paper beside the bed, which now i’m also in love with.

sigh, i wish that perusing blogs could be my full-time job.

photos by henrik bulow. check it. he’s brilliant.

cabernet, bruce willis, and some sexy sexy fashion

May 7, 2009

aggggh, i’ve been SO damn busy, i haven’t even had time to check out all the met gala photos, let alone do my daily blogging…isn’t that terrible? keeping up with the fash is time consuming work, let me tell you. sigh, if only the 24/7 fashion bubble world i dream of could become a reality…

LOVE this site: wildfox — they feature stunning photography, and i feel like everything they post makes life look like so much fun. they posted a fabulous editorial today that i just adore.

beware: as i sit here, enjoying a glass of cabernet and die hard 2 (i have a terribly ridiculous, unrelenting love for action movies. especially those involving the nypd…this also pretty much encompasses all bruce willis movies), waiting to meet up with a friend for martinis, i may just start streaming posts of things i find delectable. it’s been three days and i’m going through withdrawl. plus, it’s my blog, i do what i want.

xoxo, bitchesssssss

^ my favorite!

the tights in every outfit are to DIE for. i love the retro feel…the make-up, hair, perfect model, the clothes…it’s beautiful to look at. topping it off, the editorial’s name is so fucking adorable…i love it.

and, after the break…

April 15, 2009

Hello lovies! I was in the great state of Iowa visiting my family over the Easter weekend and, as you can obviously tell, took a small break from blogging and all things technological to bask in too much food, excess sleep, and coffee (et al) dates with dear, wonderful friends. I’m quite proud of myself in that I did not turn on the television once, and checked my email but twice (only to delete junk mail!)…but I’m very glad to be home and back in the swing of things. I am a creature of habit, after all…and one can only go so long without her blogging, magazines and trashy reality television (all of which was remedied tonight immediately upon my return).

And how lucky I was to happen up this photo shoot! A veritable homage to things I love dearly: fashion, seduction, and too many good times. Wildfox Couture is an LA-based line, inspired by all things vintage, peace and love. Cliche in some realms, but eternally applicable in all others. There is, after all, a hippie love child somewhere deep within all of us. Look on and love, as I certainly have. Their site boasts a fabulous blog, as well, filled to the brim with a mecca of evocative imagery (take note of their recent post’s link to vampire teeth on…god bless vampires).

I adore the lips, nails, pattern combos, and the candid photography. If you know me, you know that I prefer no picture to be “posed and ready.” If you try to get me to pose, you will get my “oh my gosh, i’m so surprised to be taking this picture!” face. I don’t smile regularly in photos. I either don’t realize they’re being taken, or I fake a candid. Therefore, I have a special love for editorials which seem to be capturing moments, rather than perfectly placing pretty people in pretty situations.

On THAT note, I was quite pleased with some magazine covers that were waiting patiently in my mailbox upon my return (bless my roommates for not checking the mail often…I always omit an audible “oooh!” whenever I see that my magazines have arrived).


Amy Adams. A goddess. She is one of the few actresses that automatically inspire me to see any film in which they are involved…whether I know a thing about it or not. She’s a stunning natural beauty, and I am thrilled to see someone play with that and do her up right, without taking away from her natural intoxicating appeal.


Drew Barrymore. Okay, what girl wasn’t inspired by her freakishly amazing autobiography (maybe just me…I was a…unique child)? But seriously. This underwater cover is just lovely. SHE is lovely. I am pleased.

Marie Claire:

Whatever…say what you want to about this magazine. Is it great for high, Paris Vogue, W style fashion? No. Does it have great articles, some pretty clothes, and is it perfect for gym reading? Absolutely. Is Rachel McAdams riDICulously stunning on this month’s cover? YES. As well as a marker of what we should all want to look like when we’re 34? Umm…without a doubt. Kate and I were discussing earlier tonight how she was like, 27 when she did Mean Girls…even though she was playing a 16 year old. Genetics have done this woman good.

On a final note, I’m so ready for Spring to have sprung. I waaaaaaant to buy the printed maxis and metallic flats that I plan on living in over the warm months. I just find it hard to do when I’m still relying on my winter coat. I don’t even love summer…I’m just looking for a little seasonal consistency here, please. If Spring will give itself to me, I will surrender to it. A fair compromise, I feel.

xoxoxoxo, lovies.
