Current Obsession: CoutureLab

A few days ago (I don't remember how) I stumbled upon an image of a gorgeous Ann Demeulemeester vest. My mouse clicked on it of its own volition, and I arrived at the CoutureLab site. Compelled by a propensity to obsess over things I don't need/can't afford, I cautiously clicked through the sparse but amazing collection of antique lace neck pieces (not plain ol' necklaces, thankyouverymuch), tulle skirts dusted with gold leaf, exotic printed gowns, and...

Work Style: Floral Prints

Screenprinted tee, Urban Outfitters; skirt, Warehouse; cardigan, The Limited; boots, Century 21; feather earrings, Anthropologie; belt, vintage. I'm not usually a floral print type of girl--give me blacks and grays any day--but I guess the combination of rainy April weather and warm temperatures is making me feel more princess than witch. Has the impending spring season had an impact on your style?...

Like, stuck in the middle of a cornfield in Arkansas lost. Yes, even...

Style: Menswear Inspired

Perhaps inspired by the Comme des Garcons/Like the Boys post from last week, I felt the urge to express my masculine side, which, much like my feminine side, involves scowling arrogantly, greedily stuffing junk food down my throat, and telling other people what to do. Trousers, J. Crew; oxford shirt, vest, and suspenders, thrifted; shoes, Charles David; Porkpie hat, Hats in the Belfry; Watch, Timex...

Style Psychology: Ugly, But Cool

Have you ever been attracted to something (or someone) you never would have considered your type? You know, something that doesn't fit into your usual style, something that doesn't "look like you?" I never bothered to take psych in college, so I'm not sure if this particular condition has a name, but I do know it's happened to me before.  I still regret not buying some of the ugliest rings I've ever laid eyes on (they...

Blogger Jewelry: Rare Jewels

Notice how I didn't use the over-used, incredibly predictable reference to jewelry as "bling" for the title? You can thank me with cash. I am heavy into jewelry right now, especially dramatic necklaces. Let's take a look at the lovely pieces recently seen on a few of my favorite bloggers: I love this combination of heavy gold necklaces, and the length is perfect. http://theseams.blogspot.com/ This vintage gold necklace is a great accent under blouses as it lies perfectly on the...
