Aim High

How deliciously put-together is this look? It's so elegant, yet so effortless at once. Viviana sure knows a thing or two about style.

Footwear Fever

These Proenzas are my latest shoe obsession. Get them here.



Chloé's pre-fall collection was one of my favorites. Seriously exquisite.



These images are so glamorous and so far away from reality that i was immediately drawn to them. It's crazy how fashion from decades past can seem so fresh and modern today. The editorial was also styled by one of my favorites in the biz, Katie Mossman.

Four Corners

I'm in love with this coat! I blame my weakness for anything Navajo...



Kate is always sartorial perfection.

I bought this dress in Paris when i lived there after falling in love with the Burberry fall 09 show. I had never experienced with this length of dress before but i was smitten - never thinking it would become the new standard. So let's give Burberry the real credit for starting this trend, an entire year before the whole Prada and Louis Vuitton craze. Oh and again, Burberry kicked off the shearling rage, so basically this outfit is all kinds of Burberry love.

Dress - Vintage
Eyelet tights - MaxMara
Shoes - Alaïa

Absolute flawless layering.



I daydreamed about it being spring when i woke up this past Saturday morning. It seems like so far away... This picture makes me think of summer, raising any sort of anticipation i may have had to the next level.


Every Glance Is Killing Me

Stunning editorial with impeccable styling. Everything about these images feels so refreshing.

Isn't this picture just a pile of marvelous?


Gold Rush

Kind of really feeling glittery gold at the moment. These two items are golden. Literally.

Back In Time

Casual, 70's-inspired and perfect for the fall season. I know, i know, i'm still going through outfits from 2010, but it's just because i have them in stock and i don't like to post too many outfit shots at once on the blog. Just enough for you guys to get a rough idea of what my personal style is like, assuming that you care! ♥

Like Sugar To My Heart

Visually arresting. The colors! The vibrancy! A feast for the eyes - buffet styles.


The Professional

I know, i know - Kate... Again. But how could i not when she looks this good?


No Day Like Today

On a scale of 1 to 10 i give this photo a 20. There's nothing like capturing a moment, especially when the moment looks like this.

Center Stage

So i recently took up ballet and i have to say, it's amazing. I also ransacked the dance store this evening and went a little ape with all the outfits. I'd been wanting to do ballet for years now and i finally took the plunge! I highly recommend it.

One of my favorite Kate Lanphear shots. Love her in a more feminine look, she looks amazing.

Where the Cool Kids Hang

Just booked my trip to nyc and my anticipation cannot be contained, so i'm sharing the info.


Style and Grace

So amazing on so many levels.

I've been going crazy for coats with leather detailing. Whether it's the sleeves or the pockets, i need something utilitarian that mixes leather and canvas. I found this Club Monaco coat in a January magazine (but i can't seem to find it online!), which means it must hit stores soon... i have a feeling it will be mine!

Total Look

I love this photo. The mix of elements is so complimentary, while Mary Kate's dewy skin never ceases to amaze me.

Before the blizzard, obviously. A streamlined look, just like i like 'em, taken right before heading out the door to go to work.

Sweater - Zara
Jeans - J Brand
Coat - Club Monaco
Shoes - Nine West
Fur scarf - Vintage

Buffalo Stance

Kind of really into the pink as of late. Could spring be calling?


New Girl In Town

I'm obsessed with Arizona Muse. Can't wait to see her career blossom.

Easy to Please

I am in love with this dress. It looks vintage yet modern and it's perfectly in tune with the 70's revival. I've actually been looking for something like this for years: white eyelet or lace... Dainty and sexy with no ounce of vulgarity and the perfect amount of edge if styled properly.



Such an alluring image. The angular lines are broken up by a soft, dewy complexion and a flaxen mane.

So the holidays are over and it's back to blaring reality, otherwise known as the anticlimax of the season. I had the best time in Vancouver, thanks for all your wishes. Hope you guys had a great new years! What did you guys do??


True Gem

Ruby Aldridge has amazing style. It's the perfect blend of casual and chic, masculine and feminine, rock n roll and country.
