Blue Jean Baby

There's something to be said about the perfect denim or chambray shirt. It's so versatile and fits like a second skin when it gets to that perfect worn-in stage. Demonstrated three different, amazing ways below.

Birds of a Feather

As you all know, i'm inexplicably obsessed with models. It's nice to know that mystical creatures stick together.

Miss Vogue

Speaking of winter whites, Vogue Paris does a simple and stunning display of how well the luxurious non-color can work for evening. The gorgeous Nadja Bender shines.

Strung Out

Holy shit you guys, it's so cold right now. While i'm used to sub-zero temperatures, it somehow feels colder than back home (where it's currently -40C/-38F), even if it's not. This is the coldest i've experienced nyc yet and it's my 3rd winter here. Not cool. But to look cool, do like Maryna and grab a leopard fur coat.


Weekend In Review

A few worthy snaps of this past weekend. We had our annual regifting party on Friday, which was yet again a very successful affair. I channeled my inner Martha Stewart and whipped up one of my specialties, my infamous banana pudding (it's actually the Magnolia recipe, find it here). But i also decided to try making oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies, which were probably some of the most indulgent things i've ever made. Find the recipe right this way! Other highlights include a delicious brunch where you can see me showing off my gorgeous newly inherited ornate earrings from my grandmother, as well as beautiful weather conducive to long leisurely strolls and very casual sunday attire.

If you're interested in getting some of the items i'm wearing, see below, in order of appearance:

South Bound

I'm extremely excited because this Friday i will be on my way to Texas for the very first time! I'll be in Austin for 4 days, which i'm so looking forward to exploring. Now i'm thinking about what i should be packing and checking out the weather for what to bring, so i've got these few easy looks on my mind. Do you guys have any Austin, TX tips? Send them my way!

Fall in Paris

I hate to rehash the past, but i just found these unpublished paris photos from last fall on my desktop (my desktop is a ridiculous mess, sadly) and i can't keep them to myself! For more paris reminiscing, click here.

Shine Bright Like a Diamond

Happy saturday you guys. Hope everyone's having a nice weekend. Nothing like sequins on Karolina Kurkova and sheer sparkling panties on Kate Moss' cheeks to inspire on a saturday night.

I'm really enjoying Karolina Kurkova's understated off-duty style. It's caj and chic, but simple, which i find quite attractive. And feels effortless -- right up my alley.

All white had a moment last spring and certainly, it will carry over to the next season. It's so fresh and chic and truly just classic and beautiful. See below for how to wear your whites without looking like you work in a hospital.

Beautiful Girl

Like any girl, i love playing around with makeup and beauty products, but truth be told, the look that pulls me in deep is the bare face. I don't kid myself into thinking i can actually pull it off (my skin's not that great and my hereditary dark circles could be categorized as a serious condition), but with the right makeup, ironically, it's definitely something i try to achieve. I'm secretly loving the no mascara trend and being a natural blonde, the effect is even more striking, although i've yet to take my in-home attempts to the streets for a test drive. Blame it on years of piling on the eyelash gunk and the fear of looking like a cancer patient by going sans, but maybe this spring when i get some extra color in my face courtesy of mr. sunshine, i may muster the courage. And while it's hard to rival a young model's natural beauty, one can still aspire to look like the fresh faced flowers they are. Below, some natural beauty inspo through Josephine, Frida and Kasia.

I am completely head over heels (pun intended) with these amazingly gorgeous, beautiful, perfect to the bone Gianvito Rossi sandals. OBSESSED.
