Why? Oh, Why??

I love Chloe Sevigny. Her fashion is always classic with an urban edge. Her wardrobe is pretty much what aspire too. Because of this, I patiently await her arrival on every red carpet just to see what she is wearing. Usually I am impressed and left desperately wanting everything she was wearing. That being said, I'm disappointed by her choice of dress for the Golden Globes.
Honestly, what was she thinking??

The color and cut of the dress do not flatter her at all. The color washes her out and the cut adds about 15 pounds to her midsection.
How do you feel about this gown choice?

Lip Saver!

Every girl has that product that they absolutley can't live without. I have a few myself: my blowdryer and straightener are my bestfriends (after my shoes), I have worn the same perfume since I was twelve, and I wouldn't dream of changing my skin care routine.

One winter time essential is a good lip balm. Normal lip glosses don't do anything for my dry, cracked lips. I've never been one to enjoy slathering Vaseline on my lips, so I had to find another alternative. My dry lips rejoiced the say I found Crabetree & Evelyn's Jojoba Oil lip balm.
I stubbled upon this product by a complete accident. I borrowed out of a friends bag and I've been using it ever since. Its naturally moist without that shine. Its a natural texture and lasts all day. The smell is nothing to write home about, but it really works.

Under the Sea

I'm sorry I haven't been updating much. I've been struck by the inspiration bug and have barely lifted my nose out of my sketch book. I think some of the things I have come up with are pretty good, which is new, usually I think my work is crap.
Jill Greenberg's photo collection called Underwater has been a huge inspiration to me. Aren't they beautiful? I love the movement.

Spring 2010 Best of: Pumps

Earlier, I decided I would share with you, lovely readers, my top picks for the Spring 2010 shoes. I had to put this on hold because of the holidays but now its time to finish it up! I have shown you my favorite boots and flats for the season and today is pumps.

The range of different styles this season is crazy. There were girly pinks and patent leather next to studs and snakeskin. Yet each shoe was so unique and beautiful.

Stuart Weitzman- Python Printed Studs Open Toe Pumps
I love the mix of different textures on this shoe. The snakeskin with the studs should have been too much but somehow looks just right. I'm right on board for the whole platform trend this season. I'm super short, so the more height the better. This heel looks manageable while still avoiding chunky.

Lanvin-Patent and Suede Pumps

The structure of this shoe was what drew me in. I love the swooping motion of the sides and the color is so vibrant and exotic. For some reason I picture wearing these on some seaside vacation.

Giuseppe Zanotti-Patent Leather with Rubber Platform Pump
I love the simplicity that these shoes offer. The color is classic while the shape is modern and updated. I love the idea of the rubber platform and I think these are the perfect replacement for your basic nude pumps.

Fendi-Lycra and Plexi Peep Toe Pumps

These were my favorite from the bunch. Like I mentioned before I am a huge fan of the platform trend and I have always loved clear details. I'm also in love with the clever placement of the Fendi logo on the back of the plexi platform. I think its an unusual shoe but very forward and when worn right could be very beautiful.

Saddle up!

So I've mentioned before that I have been searching for the perfect pair of cowboy boots. I'm not sure why I want them but I feel I need them to complete my shoe collection. Petty excuse to buy more shoes? Yes, most likely, but what the hell!

At first I thought a pair of Frye boots would be my best bet but I never found a pair that I felt were my style. I searched high and low and had pretty much given up my search when I saw these Jeffery Campbell on shopbop. They are the perfect pair for my style. The gray color will ensure they I can match them with most of my wardrobe, and not ruin them in the muddy weather that is so abundant here. I'm expecting them in the mail any day now!!
