fish belt and tutu skirt:


docs + tie dye maxi + drop cross earrings =


so its not my style, but I love each piece. The skirt length bothers me though - it just looks like the designer couldn't decide whether he wanted a floor length or calf length (which is the most unflattering of all). Love it from the knee up though.

aesymetrics and leather.


I love the different proportions here - especially the leather pants.
Doesn't that necklace seem like a cheap looking downtown version of the Gucci one from last season?
Nude nail polish colors are big for fall and showing up all over the place as people phase out of summers neon shades.

Teenage Dreams - Katy Perry

You think I'm pretty
Without any makeup on
You think I'm funny
When I tell the punchline wrong
I know you get me
So I let my walls come down, down

Before you met me
I was a wreck but things
Were kinda heavy
You brought me to life
Now every February
You'll be my Valentine, Valentine

Let's go all the way tonight
No regrets, just love
We can dance, until we die
You and I, will be young forever

You make me feel
Like I'm livin' a
Teenage dream
The way you turn me on
I can't sleep
Let's run away and
Don't ever look back,
Don't ever look back

My heart stops
When you look at me
Just one touch
Now baby I believe
This is real
So take a chance and
Don't ever look back,
Don't ever look back

We drove to Cali
And got drunk on the beach
Got a motel and
Built a fort out of sheets
I finally found you
My missing puzzle piece
I'm complete

Let's go all the way tonight
No regrets, just love
We can dance, until we die
You and I, will be young forever

You make me feel
Like I'm livin' a
Teenage dream
The way you turn me on
I can't sleep
Let's run away and
Don't ever look back,
Don't ever look back

My heart stops
When you look at me
Just one touch
Now baby I believe
This is real
So take a chance and
Don't ever look back,
Don't ever look back

I'mma get your heart racing
In my skin tights jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight
Let you put your hands on me
In my skin tight jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight

You make me feel
Like I'm livin' a
Teenage dream
The way you turn me on
I can't sleep
Let's run away and
Don't ever look back,
Don't ever look back

My heart stops
When you look at me
Just one touch
Now baby I believe
This is real
So take a chance and
Don't ever look back,
Don't ever look back

I'mma get your heart racing
In my skin tights jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight
Let you put your hands on me
In my skin tight jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight

hermes, scalloping, and a chanel envelope:


I like the way you hold an envelope clutch- much better than holding a normal clutch. That scalloping detailes on the shorts make them so cute-sy that it really doesn't matter how short they are, you won't look inappropriate; they really stand out against the black background.

Versus designer, Christopher Kane's own line. I'm still mad at myself for not getting one from his Topshop collection.
Imagine all the kids you could scare off in this.



I love the idea that everyone who walks by you gets a little insight into who you are via what's in your bag. I also like the crystal closures. The perfect summer bag for the beach or the sidewalk.

a little birdie told me...

I always love randomly spotting a Chanel tattoo on someone on the street. I would just like to say that I ordered mine like 2 months ago and they still haven't arrived. That makes me nervous.


Stalking Stockolm:

some of my favorite outfits from the archives of Stockolm Streetstyle.
today its gross outside, so i'll be reading the archives of the website and posting a lot of my favorite looks. All photos are from the website.
Stockholm StreetStyle is my favorite street style blog (besides garance dore) simply because they have so many pictures focusing on the detailing of each piece and they are very up to date on the trends right now with all the newest things off the runway like the miu miu prints and chanel tattoos. Its your own little window into heaven.


taylor pulls off the stripper look:

Not only does newly 17-year-old Taylor Momsen wear a tight dress (which i like with the studs), a visible black bra, a garter belt, and stripper heels - with a slot that says 'tips' you slip dollar bills into - but she also smokes on stage while performing onstage with her band The Pretty Reckless. Listen to her band, its siiick. Especially 'Zoombie' and 'Make me Want to Die' I can't wait for the music videos.
I kind of love how bad ass she is, or wants to be anyway.
Happy 17th Taylor.

The End of Dior, and femininity?

"an icon of the great couture era... a dream and an escape from reality." - Viktor & Rolf

This iconic image of Dior's 1957 collection where he had combined the collection to be a look of all of the most popular silhouettes of the 1950s. Women used to look so ladylike back then, especially compared to what we wear today. I'm sure that if Dior were to look into the pages of any fashion magazine today he would have had been appauled. With our short shorts, boxy boyfriend blazers, chunky wedges, and tiny crop tops. For the most part, we've moved past pretty and elegant and onto cool and edgy. But to be honest, its better this way. Its so much easier to be able to dress smartly and be comfortable in everyday lives while still being able to wear gorgeous clothes. Right?

Christian Dior Spring Summer 2008 Haute Couture

Very strange, but kind of beautiful in an 'alice in wonderland' way. I always admire the way haut couture shows dare to do their model's makeup for the runway. The reason most brands do the couture shows are to get more media/editorial attention and then make money off of their lesser priced lines and perfumes so they can afford to take risks. The models look otherworldly.
Bejewled eyebrows might be a bit much if your not lady gaga, but sticking rhinestones along the rim of your eyes could be just enough glamour to work in your life.

blogcrush - afterDRK

(H&M dress, D&G shoes)

Sabrina's blog, afterDRK , is headed by one of Andy (of style scrapbooks)'s best friends and although her blog doesn't really compair to Andy's its still a good read with lots of pretty dresses and great shoes. afterDRK may have just started last November but he blog is already leading a strong following. She does a lot of traveling, she takes her camera everywhere, and is worth your time if you have some to spare.
Basically, she is the Veronica (of chiara) to Andy.

The dress above is one of my favorites of hers, not only because of the sick print but because of the creative way she is wearing it. Its actually a maxi-dress which she tied up to not only look like a short dress, but a really cool short dress. Perfect for all of your old maxi-dresses, while they're on the wrong edge of fashion right now. The neckline is great as well because it gives you something to look at up top without having to wear a necklace which would have been too much with the pattern.
Although I'm not a huge fan of the shoes, I would have pared them with wedges to make the dress more day wear. Either way, Sabrina is gorgeous. Tons of girls would kill for her smile.

I am obsessed with those Acne shoes.

"thrown on a nude blazer and I'm on board."

I still really want a pair of these ears. not to 'playboy' are they?

Each of these pieces alone would be very basic; but when thrown together, they make a great summer to fall transition look that is not in least bit boring, but also not too overdone. I'd take dotted tights and sequin jackets over a bikini any day.

Heels in the snow? glamourously adventurous.I love the way Sabrina tied her scarf around her head like that so it actually looks cool and hippie-ish.
