Anthropologie gift book

‘Tis the season to buy overly expensive gifts for your loved ones, friends, acquaintances, office mates, neighbors, neighborhood cats and strange secret santa requests. If you’re looking for brilliant, fashionable gifts at a slightly elevated price, hello! Anthropologie houses everything you could ever want to put under any kind of tree or stocking. I’m not looking to spend large amounts of cash on a single gift, but these photos and products are beautifully unique and I couldn’t help but showcase them. If anything, this is an inspiration gift book- gift lookbook.

Spread that happiness, girl. xx

Lingerie dreams: the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

My mom and I have a tradition, a wonderful tradition, of watching the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show together. This year was gorgeous, of course. So many fresh faces and all of my favorites walking the runway in lingerie I wish they sold in stores.

The gold wings at the beginning were breathtaking. My favorite were Karlie Kloss’s because they were closed, as if she were about to take flight. A metaphor perhaps? I wasn’t a huge fan of the Exotic Traveler portion of the show, but the stage was amazing. By far, the 2014 Fashion Show has had the best set. I was beginning to become slightly disappointed after the Pink walk, but when everyone came out in black, lace, ultra-sexy outfits, it made up for it all. Lily Aldridge’s black feathered wings! Amazing.

Oh, my favorite part had to be watching Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima walk in the $2 million bras almost caused a tear to fall. They’ve been modeling together since they were 15! And now they’re walking together as two of the most influential Victoria Secret models ever.

I’ve never been a fan of Taylor Swift, but thanks to VS, she may have gained another fan.

To more lingerie inspired nights. xx

November at Free People

Knits, lace, velvet, crop tops, faux fur, ridiculously gorgeous necklaces and hair styles that I have to try (the rope intertwined with the braid?!). Free People is officially my inspiration for all things fall. If only their items weren’t so pricey. I may have to just draw inspiration from their gorgeous pieces and find other versions at stores that won’t leave me crying at the checkout.

Too much inspiration right now, especially with Delta Spirit playing in the background. xx

#Revenge Fashion

RevengeSeason4Episode1EmilyThorneDress1RevengeSeason4Episode1Fashion RevengeSeason4Episode1NolanOutfit RevengeSeason4Episode1EmilyThorneDressRevengeSeason4Episode1EmilyThorneDressRevenge aired the premiere of their fourth season tonight and the fashion was amazing.

My obsession with Revenge began when I came across the first three seasons on Netflix and binged watched them to completion. Emily (nonchalantly wearing a gorgeous, floral silhouette) and Nolan (casually being carried in on a throne) are by far my favorite characters, and may have the best fashion choices. The outfits on set have always captured my eye, but tonights episode made me even more aware of the perfected styles of each character.

To another wonderful season of Revenge! I can hardly wait until next week. xx

Circa 2011, Julien Fournié Haute Couture collection had some designs that were bloody amazing. I’m not a fan of blood, yet these designs are gorgeous and unlike anything I have come across. Many works of art that contain blood come across as vulgar, to the point where you can’t look at it for too long. Yet this outfit, as well as the accompanying make up, has so much detail, and the expression the model holds while she’s wearing the dress goes perfectly with everything the designer/artist was trying to portray. Lana Del Rey also goes very well this this dress. I believe a movie script could be made just based of this Julien Fournié gown and Lana Del Rey’s voice.

Halloween has already begun in my world, which includes fashion. xx

Florals for spring

“Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.”

Miranda Priestly, florals for spring are groundbreaking, when they’re stitched on the designs of Michael Kors. All of the designs from his spring collection were delicate, beautifully made, and most importantly, realistic.

Dresses, skirts, blouses, all within the reach of the average human. Femininity and masculinity combined and created outfits that perfectly balanced day and night, while other outfits were purely feminine, embracing the purest of colors and the petals of flowers. Poetic. Poetic is a fine word to describe the Spring 2015 collection from the ever inspiring, Michael, Michael Kors. xx

It was difficult to find a trend for Spring 2015. Just kidding, totally playing, there is a trend here. Black and white is coming back! For spring! Next year. There were so many black and white outfits accompanied with asymmetrical skirts, blouses and dresses. However, once I hit Oscar de la Renta, and his gorgeous, colorful collection, it instantly made me happier. Coming from someone with an entire closet overflowing with black, whites and nudes, the burst of color was welcomed and I shall dedicate a post to his fantastic line. So many colors! Ah, so gorgeous.

As for the street style, *begins a slow clap*. Such a variety of looks, and all quite casual. I loved seeing the crop top trend, and I secretly (well, I guess openly now) hope it never leaves. I have way too many crop tops and it would be a shame to only wear them in the vicinity of my apartment. My favorite street style look would be Lily Donaldson. She makes fashion look effortlessly chic and sexy.

As I stated before, we’ll be seeing you soon Oscar. xx

VMA fashion wins

Black leather and barely there tops seemed to be all the hype on the red carpet for the VMAs. I adored Lucy Hale in her black, leather crop top and Victoria Justice’s black Lublu Kira Plastinina skirt was amazing and completely unique. When Iggy Azalea stepped out in a silver, skin-tight, Versace gown, I was satisfied for the night. I felt as though I had a glimpse into the future of fashion. xx

My favorite Emmy looks

JanuaryJonesEmmysRedDressSofiaVergaraEmmys2014RedCarpetSarahHylandEmmy2014RedCarpet
Well, I started this post with my favorite red carpet looks from the Emmys, but after going through fifty pictures, I only found one look that I absolutely adored. The gorgeous January Jones in a red gown by Prabal Gurung. The list would be longer if I went based of the person wearing it, but I strictly stuck to what wowed me aesthetically and here it is!

UPDATE: I was about to publish, but then I came across Sofia Vergara and Sarah Hyland. I can’t believe I almost forgot one of the most fashionable women out there. Sofia killing it in a Roberto Cavalli gown and Sarah Hyland make the crop top look amazing on the red carpet thanks to Christian Siriano.

Onto the VMAs, and more risqué looks. xx
