SHOESS!!! I'm so excited! These are literally the perfect heels ever and I got them on sale! I have yet to find an article of clothing in my closet that fails to match with these shoes. I absolutely love the contrast between the light wood and the black leather which makes them pretty versatile in that you can pair them with something casual or formal. Madewell still has these shoes online in a burgundy and a gold color but only if you happen to be a size 11.  It's kind of a stretch but they remind me of these Alexander Wang heels that Shini, from Park and Cube, is always wearing/ featuring in her blog.  Hope you enjoyed this post! woot woot 

From filming Harry Potter, to campaigning for Burberry, to studying at Brown University and now Oxford University, Emma Watson has maintained a humble persona throughout the growth of her fame. Not only a super famous actor, she's also a prominent style icon and inspiration for so many people. Here's a quote from Emma Watson that I got from "Before, I used to insist on taking the bus or the underground as a way of rebelling against my fame. But, at one point, you have to give it up." I just thought that just really shows her personality and her thoughts towards her fame in that she doesn't take advantage of it, and I find that quite refreshing. I think she is just so beautiful, both in her appearance and personality, as well as inspirational.

It's more natural and stunning, I think[/caption]

Here’s just a few things I got recently from Urban Outfitters (which were all on sale!) that ended up being all black… hmm…First thing I got was a simple dress with a circle skirt that also has a superr cool criss-cross cut out right in the middle. I’d wear it with some super tall, chunky, wooden-heeled platforms that I own.

This “muscle” tee is a little “grunge-y” for my liking but it’s still really cool! The graphic on it is a little sketchy looking but pretty unique, haha. I think it’d look cool tucked into a flowy skirt, high waisted shorts, or maybe some skinny jeans.

Last thing I got were the “Coopertive canvas ankle strap skimmers” which are just super simple, pretty classic, and can go with a lot of outfits.

well thanks for readin’!


I originally found this on Refinery29: a Louis Vuitton ad featurin’ 22x Olympian champion Michael Phelps looking kind of angry, and I thought it was too weird/surprising/generally bizarre to pass up talking about it. But I don’t know what to say… I guess I’ll leave it up to you guys to stew in your own bathtubs of conflicting emotions.

I know it’s a long ways away until fall/it gets cooler (at least for Austin it is), but I’m really craving cooler weather and fall clothes! I love the darker colors, chunky sweaters, and layering that comes with fall fashion and how creative you can get with your style, much unlike the summer when your predominant life’s mission is to avoid heat stroke. Here in this set, I’ve put together a few pieces that I literally would die to even be in the presence of, like the Mary Katranzou intarsia sweater or the studded Alexander Wang bag and the Rodarte “Radarte” pullover which is possibly the wittiest thing I have yet to encounter in all my years. I’m also really digging (digging?) the gold Jimmy Choo loafers which is such a classic and statement piece at the same time, the geometric (?) print on the Helmut Lang leggings, as well as the ASOS beanie featuring two pom-poms arranged in two areas of the hat in which coincidentally create ear-like forms…hmm. I hope this has inspired you to get ahead of da curb about starting to think about the upcomin’ fall season and new trends! Fall needs to come sooner…

Three quite simple things I learned from the 2012 Dior haute couture show (which in itself was fantastic and I absolutely loved every single piece):

1. peplum and bustiers are the current hype of the style world

2. tie-dye can be chic and not just for summer camp

3. less is more: classic silhouettes + simple and dainty patterns = elegant fashion

This season’s Dior was absolutely brilliant! Quite minimalistic for haute couture, however brilliant nonetheless. I’m sure I could learn a million other things from this collection but these are just a few obvious ones. What do you guys think?

Okay so these are Steve Madden's Jazie oxfords in cognac that they're selling for $89.95: CHECK THESE OUT! I found an almost exact pair of oxfords at Target for $19.99!!! They're slightly different because they have a suede like finish and they're a darker beige color than the Jazie oxfords but I'm still super happy with my find! Target also makes the same oxford in black with a bright blue sole. YAYY
