Cherry Blossom Girl

Going through my desk top and I found this picture of Alix, aka the cherry blossom girl, the photo makes me sad only because I spotted a very pretty white crochet/lace vintage dress at the thrift store a few months ago, I let it sit and came back a day or two later and it was gone :(. Anyway, I love this look on Alix.


The skirt and shirt are marc by marc jacobs, I did a quick search online and wasn't able to find it, but will keep you posted.

Just had to share, she has on what appears to be a boyfriend shirt that she is wearing as a skirt, paired it with dressier items and somehow it works.

SN: I showed my sister this pic, the following is our actual conversation:

her: that's an outfit?
me: yes.
her: who would wear something like that?
me: i think it's a neat idea.
her: you would wear it, huh?
me: yep.

As a matter of fact I may have to search through my dad's closet for a plaid/oversize shirt, if that doesn't work   I will be shopping through the men's dept. this weekend.

Just wanted to post Rihanna's courtside look at the NBA All-Star Game, very casual and cute in her olive green pants and cream colored sweater.

Dolce Vita for Target

So, I am not sure where I have been, but I was totally unaware that dolce vita had a line at Target. It's probably because Target doesn't normally carry my shoe size (12 in case you were wondering), but when I saw these boots on blogger Diana Kang's feet, I had to check them out. Lo and behold not only were they on-sale for $12.24, but they had them in my size! Check them out here I wound up buying them and these studded oxfords. Will definitely take pics and show them off when they arrive, but for now you can check them out on Diana's feet.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I actually made Red Velvet Cupcakes on Saturday with my niece, at that time I was supposed to take pictures and share with you all for Valentine's Day...however in an effort to make sure my niece didn't eat all of the homemade frosting...I totally forgot to take pictures. So, I scoured the internet for shots of red velvet cupcakes to share with you all. Hope you guys have a lovely V-Day.

And to top it all off a video by Igor + Andy which I thought was especially sweet.

The Gap

The Gap is actually one of my favorite places to shop for the basics, tees, pants, etc. (especially when those items are on sale). For the tall girl (like myself) they carry both a long inseam and a tall selection (though the long inseam works perfectly for me). Anyway, I was on the site today looking at jeans when I fell in love with their landing page's soft looks, pants done in neutral tones, flowy, romantic blouses and super soft looking cardigans. Will definitely go check these out this weekend.

my favorite look, i want pointy toed white pumps now

Super Bowl Fav's

 I must admit, I didn't actually get a chance to watch the Super Bowl yesterday, I was at the hospital where my uncle and his wife recently welcomed a new son. After a late Starbuck's run, I caught up on Vampire Diaries on my DVR. Luckily, my sister (who went to a SB party) told me about her favorite commercials. After checking them out on line, I had to agree they were pretty funny. They were the Bridgestone Tire commercials and the Doritos' commercial. Watch below and let me know what you think.

Alexa Meade

Nylon is one of my favorite magazine's, it's the perfect mix of fashion, art, music and culture. It's one of those magazines where I read every page (sometimes twice). This month, they featured women artists, one of them was Alexa Meade  a 23 year-old who worked as a press staffer for the Obama campaign, at first I thought I was just looking at an art painting. It turns out I was looking at a person that she painted and then photographed in a way that looked 2 dimensional, thus making her subject living breathing art. I was both blown away and inspired. Take a look for yourself.

These are the pictures I was able to add, check out her portfolio here.
