today i'm wearing...

a lia sophia crystal bangle and essie really red polish.

i was inspired by the vogue uk blog
"today i'm wearing..."
which features a daily glimpse into the
outfits worn by fashionable people in a not so "i'm on a photo shoot"
kind of way. really cool.

ooh la la

we all know that nail polishes are not created equal, even after you've
spent your time and money at the salon they still manage to chip
[i smartened up and now do them myself] but
deborah lippmann polish
has this weird staying power that makes it worth
shelling out what may seem a pricey 18 bucks for some nail paint.

the cherry on top are the fun shades like this glittery "ruby red
slipper" a cool alternative to your typical french red [it has a black base!].
and if this shade doesn't work, you can always opt for a "bad romance" with
a darker Gaga-inspired plum.

belles & baubles

i thought i'd walked into an estate jewelry sale yesterday- nope,
it was yet another lia sophia red carpet collection designed by
nylon magazine style director dani stahl- how she manages to design collection after
collection in between shoots? i have no clue,
but very happy that she has it figured out, cause i'm in love.

the new collection la belle rose II had all the women in the room
shamelessly drooling over the table of baubles trying everything on
from crystal-dripped chandelier earrings, to gaudy ivanka trump style
bracelets.[don't be afraid ladies- it's all costume jewelry, so you
too can drown in jewels].

**santa, one of everything on the wish list pls.**

take note: tina kalivas


tina kalivas is no freshman
to fashion but she definitely has a fresh perspective. she works
with a community of afghani's on her creations. i absolutely love
this embroidered bra- the colors, patterns, everything about it.
and i want to dig in her treasure box of crafts below.

the perfect pout

i just received this MAC mailer featuring their pro longwear lustre lip
colour and i am loving it. the only way i can think to describe it is
chocolate covered cherries. it's a range of deep burgundy's with a creamy
brown undertone [very '90s]. i saw this color all over the runways
[ysl, marc jacobs] for spring, which is more refreshing than your typical nude.

the mulberry

if you've been wanting a mulberry handbag (one of the many alexa chung's
been rocking)as bad as I have, now's your only chance to get the $1200
"bayswater" bag for $50. they finally launched at target yesterday
10/10/10, and it's definitely one of the best accessory collections yet.

the perfect army

I was in the army&navy store and it sent me on the hunt
for a military green polish when I left. I finally found
"the one"- Zoya in the color "Shawn." I can't wait, it's
perfect for fall.

Nature Needs Heroes

Timberland hosted an editor's outting on governors island filled with food,
planting, and biking (i now want one of those old school townie bikes in grey),
to launch their new "Earthkeepers" eco-conscious shoe collection. my favorite-
a dessert storm-style boot (above)in that classic timberland tan. i have visions
of wearing with rolled up overalls, and maybe one of those monochromatic jansport
back packs the guys were wearing (I discovered a little backpack trend throughout
the trip which you'll see in my next post). anyway, if you haven't visited the
island by now, please do, they're having an art fair until the end of september.

target x dolce vita

i can't seem to keep up with all of target's collabos these days, which is why
(on a fun saturday morning trip) i ran into the clothing and shoes section and
stumbled upon these baby's. dolce vita for target studded oxfords for $29.99,
super cute (even has a cushioned sole!).

my thing is- if you're going to go trendy might as well make it cheap and cheerful,
since chances are you'll be over studs by next season. let's be real here.
