This One in Every Color blog has done me well for quite some time now, but I now find myself not only getting tired of the layout, but also the name and general look. Instead of finding a way to alter and change this, I've decided to just create a brand new blog. So, if you have liked what you have been reading here, then get yourself over to Grey Buzz and follow me there! Content won't be all that different, but I just was looking for a brand new look and feel for my blog. Hope you all enjoy!
Upon seeing this Louboutin for Barbie shoe collection, I was so tempted to hunt down my old toy boxes and get my Barbie's ready for these shoes. I took me a little over a few minutes to talk myself out of it, but still, these miniature shoes are drool-worthly in my books.

If you've been keeping up with the buzz around fashion week, I'm sure you've seen her face more than once. Harley Viera-Newton is definately is one of my major fashion icons. Her style is very laid back and Cali cool. DJ for all the greatest parties, Harley is constantly having to pull out going out outfits, ands she does it perfectly. Hope you like her style as much as I do!

Ever since seeing a few pieces of Sophmore's clothes in a very old issue of Nylon, I feel in love with the brand. Their clothes are soft, wearable and seem to be in every "It Girls" closet. Their "Local Only!" shirt is the one that made me fall in love with them. I have been holding out for it for so long and am glad to see it has made a comeback in their new collection. The collection was put up on their website today, and already, my Christmas list has been lengthened by a couple pages.
Shop their collection at: Sophomore NYC

Oh how I wish I could have been here! Looking at pictures of the Alexander Wang afterpart looked absolutely amazing. Not to mention how beautiful his runway show and collection was. The man really has a knack for doing it up good and proper.

I'm sure you have seen these photos everywhere, but what is seeing them once more. I love these photos and I love the way the girls are dressed. The pictures from the event certainly leave me feeling
While checking my e-mail this morning, I found byfar the most exciting one from Madewell. The Alexa Chung for Madewell line is now available for online shopping and will be in stores on Saturday! The three images posted above are my favorite pieces from her collection. It's a great partnership and I hope we haven't seen the last of Alexa at Madewell.

The things one can do with a silk scarf. You can hide a bad hair day, disguise yourself when you don't feel like being seen, or give your handbag a different look. They are a celeb go to and a must-have for any girls closet. Hermes while being iconic for their Birkin bag, are also makers of some of the finest scarves to be found. While an Hermes scarf is not really in many of our price ranges, the brand did do something that we can all enjoy. They created the wonderful website "I love my scarf." Based in four different countries, the site shows different ways different people use their scarves and a small how-to for most of the styles. Check it out for yourself and wait for your next bad hair day to try some of the styles out.
While spending my Sunday lounging in bed and reading magazines, I came across The Runaways playing on my MOD. I admit that I am not Kristen Stewarts #1 fan, but I was curious enough to pay the $5.99 rental price for the movie. Within the first 10 minutes I was absolutely enamoured with the fashion. I loved everything Dakota Fanning's character had on and found myself longing for a red jumpsuit and wooden platform heels. Even K.Stew's DIY'd "sex pistols" shirt had me reaching for an old t-shirt and some spray paint. If you haven't seen it yet, I recommend it for those who love vintage inspired film, good old teenage girl angst, rock and roll, and seventies fashion.

However, this weekend was spent in Montreal, which is quite a fashionable city. I didn't realize it until I was there in person seeing first hand the ensembles put together by the city's people for simple tasks like grocery shopping or meeting a friend for coffee. I loved it and was able to wear some of my new clothes and really dress up for such mundane days out.
I can always depend on The Gap when I am in need of a basic pair of jeans or a couple tank tops. On the off-chance though, while browsing through the store, I will come upon a piece that stays in my closet for years to come that I consider a "go-to" piece. While reading Refinery 29 yesturday afternoon, I read about this little treasure by the Gap called "The Moto Knit Blazer". I consider it a perfect summer to fall transition piece and cannot wait to hit the stores and make it mine. I'm not sure if it comes in more colors, but I kind of like the bright pop of yellow. Paired with a pair of skinny jeans and ballet flats, it is the cutest topper for casual days around town. And, it comes at the very affordable price range of $69.99.

Once again, the Olsen twins prove to the fashion world just how good they are. Coming this fall we can expect to see The Row x Linda Farrow sunglasses hitting the shelves of select stores. The sunglasses are most definately styles you would see on the girls themselves and different than a lot of the styles out right now. Expect me to be in the shops the moment they are put on the shelves so I can protect my eyes as fashionably as possible.

It's baaaack! Brace yourselves dear readers, as the return of MadMen is fast approaching. This Sunday on AMC, the Emmy award winning show is back to keep as all in shock and awe of the attitudes and styles of the times. The fashion in the show is going to be amazing, as it always is, possibly even inspiring a few more designer collections and everyday looks of people on the street. I am so looking forward to this Season 4 and have cleared my schedule so I can coiff my hair, pour myself a glass of whisky, sit back, and enjoy the show.
To say this man is brilliant, would be an understatement. His clothes are beautifully made and on top of all trends. He had as all braiding our hair at the start of the summer and look to dressing in sportwear and jersey. Today, the CFDA award winning designer will be stopping in at Holt Renfrew, Bloor st. in Toronto. The event is taking place in 1 hr,and I just cannot contain myself and my excitement. I'm a huge fan and really hoping to meet him. I will post more on how the event went!
So are backpacks cool again? I remember when they were very in fashion in the 90s and I remember when they fell out of fashion in the early 00s. I also remember thinking they were one thing that would never come back in style so it was okay for me to give away all of mine to Goodwill. Unfortunately for me, they came back. With designers like Alexander Wang making newer versions of the backpack, I've been seeing them on so many fashion forward people. I think it is safe to say that they are back, but I'm not sure if I will be running out to buy them all over again. For the sake of my wallet, I think I will sit this trend out.

After spending my summer days enjoying the beautiful sunshine, my blue streaks in my hair are slowly fading. It's so sad to see them go, but as they say, "all good things must come to an end'. I am already thinking of colors to put in next.
