spring suiting

printed patterned pinkd

The patterns and prints are so bold, its like style sex, on drugs.  Ghostland Observatory concert kind of drugs.  Gwen Stefani circa Return of Saturn hair really pushes the looks beyond the regular ol' POC.  Pop of Colors, bitches.  Grace Cobb, you are my hero.  xx

this one's for the boys

Happy Milan Fashion Week... the style setting men are out in full force.  Printed suit pants, bright fur accents, ball park jackets and sharp, muted color palettes are pop-u-lar.  I need those duffles.  Now.  And that David Copperfield magic one armed leather jacket.  XX

Tay Swift working US Vogue

Hard to believe this Nashville girl (complete with tear dripping guitar) has become an international superstar and now a Vogue model.  Well done, Taylor.  I am beyond.  Tell Drew, that Jonas brother, Jake and the Glee boys that you don't need them because you now have style.  That floppy hat that is transitional from season to season is an investment and would never, ever leak pics to In Touch.  
How Lauren Hutton is she??  xx

honorable mention

They aren't bad, but they aren't amazzzzing.  A little too much headband, crazy hair and a bit too wedding dress-y.  However, I still really enjoy these looks.

award season: commence

With the second biggest awards show airing this Sunday, the GG comes just one notch short of the Oscars.  Award season is in full swing and the ladies are already bringing out the big guns early.  I must say Young Adult was one of my favorite films of the year.

riding in cars with Givenchy boys

The ss12 Givenchy ads are extremely refreshing for me (although the car theme is a little overdone since LV trended the bellhop look with those fat pugs last season) because they are lacking the over whelming pastels!  I've never, ever had my eyes glow over light pinks and baby blues, so this is a stellar change of pace.  And Gisele.  Oh, Gisele.  Giving the males a little credit, too.  Those prints! That skirt! XX
