Hugo Naturals

I was at Whole Foods yesterday looking for face wash.
A guy working there suggested Hugo Naturals Shea
Butter and Oatmeal soap bar. He even gave it to me as a
sample! I have only used it one day and have already
seen major improvements. I highly suggest it as well,
it is all natural and smells amazing!

Shea Butter & Oatmeal $4.49

I want to get this one next.

Indonesian Patchouli & Sandalwood $4.49

Their website is not working but the owner has a blog.

Winter White

I am goin to start posting more outfits I wear. I have donated
and sold a bunch of things and am still in the process. I've kept
basics and a bunch of accessories.
I have been really busy sewing dresses I want to wear during
fashion week. I am pretty excited for my trip to NY!

These are my favorite pair of shoes. They go with ANYTHING
and add a touch of sophistication to every outfit.
They are vintage Salvatore Ferragamo in gun metal. My friend Lety gave them to me in the summer!
Thanks Letz!

Men with Style

I think these are all great examples of men's style. It shows
variety, uniqueness, and ideas you can work into your own.
These were taken in Milan during Fashion week.

He makes diet coke look hot... Also small details like the
partially tucked in shirt always make THE difference. The leather
bomber is a classic and roughens up the juicy lumberjack print.

Great example of layering. Love the electric blue color pop.
He must be wearing about three scarves and he wears them well.
Texture is added with the different tones of gray.

This blazer is great. I love his scarf!

I like everything about this!

I love the modern colored scarves added to a 70's
looking plaid. The unexpected colors work so well

This shade of purple is magnificent. The stripes and plaid
play so well with it. Military style always bring some sexy into
an outfit. Dress pants and sneakers are one of my favorite things
on guys. A great way to be stylish and formal YET comfortable.

Note the bags most of these guys have. Yes, guys can carry bags....
No, this does not look feminine nor is it called a purse. Just be confident
about it and rock a hot bag.

Metallic Jeans

I know I have not been mentioning much for the boys and this is me making up for it.

Raf Simons Coated Shiny Black/Magenta Jeans $319 Seven NYC
These are hot. We love Raf Simons and luckily these are currently
on sale! I suggest pairing them with basic tees or button ups. They
crackle with wear to give them a more distressed look. These are
the perfect jeans to add texture and excitement to any boring day.


Metallic Zip Hem Jeans £25.00 Top Shop
Silver will be big in the spring. Don't be afraid to rock these in the day time,
I would wear something ruffly to sweeten up the edginess. They can easily
pass for club wear so that is why I would pair them with a flowy, girly shirt.
Think ruffles, silk and pearls!

I read a weird story about Elisa from Project Runway. According
to her ex, she had amnesia. Read the whole story here.

These Burgers Are Crazy

Remember this crazy Food Fight collection by Jeremy Scott?

Fall 2006

I was pretty fascinated when I ran into this crocheted hamburger
dress. It is pretty genius and I wish I had my own. I love the
intricate details and the obvious hard work put into it.

It kind of brings the whole "You Are What You Eat" idea to another level
and in that case, I hope that patty is soy!

Check out other crocheted arts and food by Joy Kampia on her site.

Something Shiny For Your Inner Magpie

Usually glitter is nostalgic of Elmer's glue, construction paper and
the Spice Girls. Luckily, the latter has reunited and so has my love
affair with glitter! I have these fabulous glittered heels I bought in
a vintage shop in L.A. and I can't wait to start rocking them!

Miu Miu Glitter Sandals $290.00 Net-A-Porter

If you clicked on the link you were probably disappointed to see they
are mostly sold out. Luckily, I found this lovely imitation on Alloy!

Charles Albert Glitter Girl Heel $39.50 Alloy

Hey, for a fraction of the price these are pretty reasonable.
I am digging the silhouette and wrap around strap!

All that glitters is not... tacky.
