Mary Kate

That absurdly awesome bag almost distracted me from her awesome shoes.

Jeffrey Campbell

Dammit Jeffrey, you've done it again.

Francoise Hardy

Alexa Chung claims Hardy to be a style inspiration. "She always looked sexy without wearing ass-skimming or boob-flashing clothes." I agree with Alexa- I am impressed and inspired by those who can look sexy and alluring without revealing too much. Appearing sexy does not mean exposing yourself. In fact, by doing the opposite, one can appear sexy and mysterious by leaving the rest to the imagination.

Pamela Love

Pamela Love from from Stylelikeu on Vimeo.

Although I do not know many jewelry designers, Pamela Love is definitely one of my favorites. She incorporates everything I love: brushed silver, Native American elements, turquoise, and nature-inspired pieces. And besides having a killer jewelry line (which I insist you check out), Pamela Love has an awesome sense of style. I feel foolish for not having known this earlier! Even if you're not interested in her jewelry and creative process (which is in fact very interesting, so don't be silly), this video has excellent shots of her beautiful outfits and sense of style. Love's choice of jewelry, shoes, and clothing reminds me of a hippie, gypsy, Native American shaman and rocker. That makes sense, right?

Rag & Bone S/S 2010

Gorgeous shoes. The tab at the back of the ankle is what gets me, as well as the canvas and leather combination.

And I really need a nice pair of socks to pair with some ankle boots. Those socks look so soft!

Awesome leopard coat.

Topshop A/W 2010

Oh, the sick, unspeakable things I would do for that furry pea coat. I also love the leather vest that reminds me of a Rick Owens piece. Thank you for sharing these Ms. Engman!

A Month in Fashion

This super cute video is relatively old, but I just rediscovered it after browsing Garance Dore's blog. She takes you behind the scenes of traveling abroad and fashion shows. It also features one of my favorite fashion editors, Giovanna Battaglia. Oh, how I admire Garance and Scott Schuman! Fashion power couple to the max!

Laurel Pantin

She calls herself the tomboy in heels and is a beautiful assistant at Teen Vogue. I love her style, a combination of prep and masculinity (with heels, of course). And what a lovely trench coat!

J Shoes

On my search for the perfect ankle boot, I came upon these at a local shoe boutique. Although I love the beautiful tan pair, I whined that they didn't come in black. After extensive research on the internet (5 minutes on Google), I discovered the black pair at their website, J Shoes. They have many beautiful, well-made shoes. I love the combination of suede and leather on these in particular.

Chanel Resort 2011

Sorry for the lack of posts lately! I've been very busy with finals, packing, unpacking, work, and the like. I'd like to barter your forgiveness in exchange for some lovely Chanel Resort 2011 photographs. I must say, it was difficult to pick a select few favorites.

Rick Owens

My idea of the perfect leather jacket.

Besides having killer taste, this girl has awesome nails AND hair. Excuse me, I must hunt down the perfect minty green nail polish.

Moss & Depp

Behold, my first mood board! Originally I was going to use only Kate Moss photos until I realized what a beautiful, photogenic, stylish, and cool couple Johnny Depp and Kate Moss were.

Love this photo from Harper's Bazaar. And yes, more clogs. I can't stop.

Double Denim

Typically I find denim on denim done in a tacky way, a la Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake in the 90's (you know what God-awful getup I'm talking about). But as proved by Chloe in their S/S 2010 collection, it can be done right and tastefully.
Denim on Denim

Here's how I'd do all denim.

Bec and Bridge Winter Lookbook

Refinery 29 described this look as "kick boxer's workout clothes with Lady Gaga's stage outfits". I couldn't have said it better myself. I never thought pink latex thigh highs could look so cool. Certainly an avant-garde look, but cool nonetheless. If you want to see more, click the link below.

Trend: Colored Fur

Although I am not a fur advocate by any means (I prefer faux fur), I am liking the look of dyed fur. It adds a hippie vibe to something otherwise classic and feminine.

My favorite colors.

Favorite Colors

Navy blue, camel, black, gray, brown, white, and khaki green. By the way, that skirt is detachable from the leather jacket. Very 90's grunge and very practical.

The Search for the Perfect Watch

Favorite Watches

Personally, I believe a watch is a perfect accessory to any outfit. A watch is timeless, classic, and works for any gender. Lately I've been searching for the perfect watch to add to my minuscule collection. As if I didn't have enough shopping addictions. Well, watches are less expensive than shoes, right? No? Fine. Anyway, I've been particularly eyeing the Michael Kors runway watch. What are your favorites? I'd love to hear!

Style Spotlight: Elly Jackson

I absolutely love for having an interview with La Roux's Elly Jackson, combining my two loves, La Roux, an English pop band, and fashion. If you haven't heard of them, I suggest you listen to their music immediately and prepare for an ear-gasm. After seeing their "Bulletproof" music video, I admired Jackson's David Bowie-esque look. She makes a good point in this interview. Many women can imitate her look, but not many are brave enough to go for full frontal androgyny. Note the part where she talks about the Topshop mannequins imitating her orange coif. Priceless!

Style Spotlight: Beth Ditto

Now this may be improperly categorized, but there is something inspirational about Beth Ditto. For those of you who don't know, she an American singer-songwriter and front-woman for the band Gossip. Although I may not agree with all her fashion choices (sometimes I think she bares a little too much), she sure is fearless. Nor do we share a similar taste in clothing. To clarify, I do not take direct inspiration from what she necessarily chooses to wear, but how she wears it. She is one of the few women on the planet that does not let her size restrict her from wearing what she wants to wear. I believe that is a rare and beautiful quality to possess. Evidently, with her wild fashion sense, she does not give a damn, and wants you to know that. And you have to be doing something right if your allowed to be photographed (and even graced with his presence) with the creative director for Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, am I right?

Shopping Spotlight: Need Supply Co.

For anyone who has ever seen a fashion blog, I am sure you have heard of Need Supply Co., seeing as they advertise on nearly every one. I have browsed their selection before but never have I been so intrigued as I am now. They offer clothing, accessories, shoes (namely brands like Jeffrey Campbell and Dolce Vita), jewelry, and even nail polish (I have never heard of the brand RGB but they have some pretty sick colors). And I have never been a fan of the Jeffrey Campbell 99 boot until I saw it in Python!
