Goodbye 2009...

1. Dress fashionably EVERYDAY! (in otherwords, banish evil thoughts that its sometimes more fun to loll around the house in your dad's tracks and the souvenir t-shirt you got from the Bahamas...no matter how comfy)
2. Forget about what other people thing (too often have a put down the trendy boots and switched to Chuck Taylors simply because I feel people may think I'm "trying")
3 Use my Wii Fit Biggest Loser Game EVERYDAY (or more reasonably, at least 3 times a week...we can't be unreal in these expectations, now can we?)

I wonder how long I will actually keep these....Probably until I get sick one day and my dad's tracks are looking a lot more comfortable than my new Joe's Denim Leggings.

No. 5 must stand alone!

Light Reading

Fashion inspiration can come from anywhere. Here are some of my favorite books to read for inspiration, and ofcourse, the ever magnificient Vogue. A collection I started three years ago and that keeps on growing!

The books are:

Influence - By Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen, Style A to Zoe- By Rachel Zoe, You Know You Want It- By Eric Daman, Who What Wear Daily: Runway to Real Life, Elegance, Confessions of A Model Dorm, Everyone Worth Knowing-By Candace Bushnell, A Year In High Heels-By Camila Morton, The Gospel According to Coco Chanel-By Karen Karbo, and How to Walk in High Heels-By Camila Morton.

i like my money where i can see it - hanging in my closet.

Precious jewels of mine!
Jewelry can jazz up any simple outfit and change your style in a matter of seconds. These ones here are a few of my favorites.

Most are vintage, but amongst them are a Juicy Couture necklace, House of Harlow 1960 bracelets and a ring, and a Giles & Brothers bracelet.

It's a pleasure to meet you!

Blogs used to be a way for people to vent about their feeling for any problems they saw in the world or to make fun of celebrities and all of their scandals. But recently, the "blogosphere" has changed into an influential fashion playhouse. I for one love fashion, luxury and all things glamorous and luxe. I have felt that some blogs don't show enough of the things I want to see, but I am unable to pin-point exactly what those things are. So, I have created this blog to fill that void, and hope that it fills voids of other readers out there aswell. Enjoy!
