What I Wouldnt Do

Its quite ovbious and just like any other fashionista....I ADORE.....LOVE Christian Louboutin! Im not sure what I wouldnt do for a pair of these shoes. Probably not turn tricks....but they are total candy for your feet! OMG the spikes on VB's sky high heels...wayyyy glam punk! I love his simple black stilettos too. There is nothing quite like a fabulous pair of black heels that go with everything and make you feel so incredibly sexy. So if someone is looking to minus their closet of a pair of these....Im willing to take! Oh...I would consider killing for the sherbet stilettos;)!

Platform Heels

A long time ago I always thought that platform heels were only for dancers. Well I guess you can call me a dancer now as I'm totally in LOVE with them! I stand shorter at 5'5 and these babies give me the boost and length on my legs that I so desperately need! Sure....some may be too clunky for my taste but the awesome printed platforms would look killer with a skinny pair of blue jeans and a simple white vintage tank. The simple style platforms compliment many a spring/summer dress which normally you would think just to wear flip flops with those garmets. I found an awesome pair while on my usual hunt for vintage frocks. To my dismay they were way too big for me!:( I know someone out there will love them! Can you walk in these heels or do you leave it to the professionals?

Vancouver Street Style

Althougth not too far from us is a pretty cool street style in Vancouver. I do love their easy indie boho-esque look. Nothing like my previous style blog this style is more bohemian and comfy. Practical is the word! Relaxed with a hint of european makes their style one that I love. A white tee with vintage flats, a boho necklace and headband....we all knew it would work...why havent we pulled it off with this sort of ease?! I love the look because it looks as if they arent trying too hard. A fashionista can roll out of bed and throw anything on and have it look fab and easy. Props to you Vancouver!

Just One of Many

One of my many idols would have to be Karl Lagerfeld. Who wouldnt love all of his designs for Chanel?! I wouldnt say I was star struck when I saw him emerge from a black town car in Paris but more in awe. The girls next to me acted as if they just saw God! A fashion god would be more like it! The dresses I have picked from the haute couture line are different....amazing.....and jaw dropping. I love wearing things that are out of the ordinary. Making a statement with your clothes is showcasing your personality. These would definitely showcase mine. Are you bold enough to sport the look?

Bohemian and Hippie

I wasnt always a fan of the bohemian hippie-esque sort of look. That is until my senior year in high school. I became a full blown "fippie". I describe myself as a "fippie" because I wore all the clothes......went to all of the jam band shows.....partied all night (normal yes) camped.....traveled....but I drove a brand new BMW with grateful dead stickers all over the back. Fippie aka fake hippie. I have since changed. Not going to all of the shows, not camping as much as I used to but one thing never did change. I still LOVE the look...and the music! Its relaxed. Awesome colors, psychedelic prints.....who wouldnt love it! Here are some looks that I pulled from my shop on etsy. Love the boho hippie look or not so much?

Summer Suit Loving

It seems that more and more, bathing suits arent just for lounging on the beach or catching the best bronze tan ever....they are a total fashion statement on their own. Check out these insane anchor .....well are they bikinis or one pieces? I will call them my cut outs. Anchors are always hot when it comes to any kind of beach or boat occasion. I would totally kill for the purple leopard print one piece...serioulsy kill! I also love the Michael Kors polka dot pin up-esque look. That is my sort of summer and I have never totally cared for one pieces! Bad tan lines? Yes please! They are well worth it if this is what Im donning at the beach! Are you a bikini clad beach bunny or a onesie kind of girl?

Pixie or French Cut?

As you know...I teeter with my hairstyle all the time. Lately...esp since summer is coming up I have been fanagaling with the thought of a pixie cut ....or maybe staying still a bit longer with a french style cut a la Agyness Deyn. I love my longer girly locks but during the sweaty and hot summer season wouldnt it be easier just to wash and go? Not deal with the humid curly action that is my hair!? Do you think I would loose my girly sexy side with a short cut or do you think it would be a bold...more modern approach to the summer months? Are you short or long? Bob or pixie?.....and more so...why do you love your length?

Harajuku Street Style

In Harajuku.....they know how to make a fashion statement! Not sure if I love it or just do not get it. I applaud anyone who goes bold and strong with their clothes...makes the garmet fit to their personality and not the other way around. They have a sort of anime quality about them that does make it loveable. I personally think there is too much going on in one outfit that I would'nt have a clue of where to start! I am sure when they look at our street style they are thinking....why so bland?! I give them full props for wearing what they want...when they want. What do you think....love it....hate it.....educate me. Have a colorful weekend!

To Bang or Not To Bang?

I will admit....I am one of those girls who is always wanting to change her hairstyle. I dont stick with one regular color...which I guess would be my natural color. (I havent seen that in years!) I go from black....to buxom blonde highlights....from auburn to fire engine red. Lately though, I have been keeping one aspect of my hair the same....my bangs! I had them lite and somewhat feathered....swept aside.....and then a thicker cut bang. I did the thicker cut myself.....looked like I cut them with a broken beer bottle. Once they were fixed.....by a professional....I grew to love them. I have since wanted to grow my bangs out to have a "mary-kate olsen' kind of ...parted down the middle bohemian hair cut. I go both ways and am always changing my mind. One more problem...I have naturally curly hair too.....so I get a gheri curl thing atop my head when I dont straighten my hair. I guess the question I'm asking is......do you LOVE or HATE bangs....and why?

Favorite Accessory

I would say that my favorite part of an outfit and getting dressed up for a Friday night would have to be the shoes! I remember when I was living in Australia, I stayed at a student housing place. The building looked like a spanish haven......red clay shingles, white huge archways and a turquoise door. The rooms however were a little shabbier....not quite shabby chic even. To make my room one of the favorites amongst the girls who I was friends with, I lined the perimeter with all of my shoes. They were sooo colorful and it was a like a big walk in closet....LOVED it! There wasnt any closet space to house my favorite accessories aka my babies, so that was it. These are just a few picks of what we have up in our etsy shop and what used to line my room with in Australia. How about those Bruno Magli mary janes?! Happy Weekend!
