the ravens taking strike

I know stuff came out about V magazines size issue a couple weeks ago but i really love this video. I never really know how i feel about the skinny/normal model fight. But i know these women are gorgeous.

Sorry for the lack of posts... I just really haven't been very inspired lately. And my weekend was kinda a downer. But I did get to go to the sympohony with my best friend ever that i never get too see, which was AMAZING. Not looking forward to this week...

pinch me to waking so undeniably yours

euro sandal 1 euro 5

euro sandal 2 euro sandal 4

euro sandal 3 euro sandal 6

Can you tell I'm excited? Well, I've already been looking at new clothes for it, mostly dresses, skirts and some highwaisted shorts. I really want to find some flowy vintage maxi skirts and some simple jersey dresses. Unfortunately, I've saving up for a canon rebel(which I can't wait for!) so I haven't actually been able to buy anything(need. job. nowww). I've also been thinking a lot about practical shoes. I'm not gonna lie, I am terrible at walking in heels and even high wedges, so I'll definitely be needing some nice flats. I am really loving these sandals from gojane because they are so affordable....all of them are $15 or less. Not necessarily great quality, but I don't really have the money for that, and good quality shoes usually use leather anyways. But I'm trying to figure out which color I would buy. Black is obviously always a safe bet, but I am really loving greys right now and the taupe color is really nice... opinions?
p.s. this really makes me want an stars/outerspace/intergalactic dress nowww.

Lauren McGrath, the daughter half of good bones great pieces, is a fashion assistant at teen vogue. After stumbling upon the blog I looked through their entire archive because i absolutely loved her outfits. She mixes inexpensive and designer items with ease and has even been snapped by the sartorialist & garance dore. I love seeing what an industry insider wears everyday. And I would definitely check her out... I have a feeling she's going to be huge. And isn't she stunning?!

Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.

Sonia Rykiel S/S 2010

I don't know why, but I really love this. I think its because of all of the lipstick tones...does that make any sense? probably not.

Happy MLK day!

I want you to have a good time but if you get a girl pregnant out of wedlock, I will crawl into the car, drive up to Oxford and cut off your penis.

I've said it once and I'll say it again:china magazines are amazing. I don't care if its vogue or elle, they always deliver gorgeous editorials that i die for. Stam is definitely in her element here.
Oh and I finally saw the Blind Side last night and it was amazing. The story was soooooooo inspirational and reminded me why I want to foster/adopt when I get older.
