Today I’m leaving for my road trip across the country with my friend Heidi! I’m driving with her all the way back to Boston! I won’t be able to post on the road, but I’ll be sure to share my pictures and my experiences with you when I get to my apartment in Boston!  In the mean time here are some great images from some of the best road trip movies…

If the crazy parties, completely over the top performances and worshipping fans weren’t enough, what about the leathers, feathers and studs rock stars get to wear? This season fashion continues its love affair with rock and roll…Here are some great ways to channel your inner rock star…

I’m completely over fringe boots, but fringe jackets? Never! I just bought a really great beige colored one last weekend and I can’t wait to wear it. It reminds of something Sienna Miller would have worn in Alfie. Anyways, This guy was on Knightcat and I love how he rocked his fringe! So fun!

Stylishly Eccentric?

This past year in my dorm on our cliche door whiteboard,  I would take the time to write daily questions. I know I sound like a dork, but it was a fun way to amuse myself and my fellow floor mates seemed to enjoy them. When the whiteboard wasn’t stolen as it often was by the boys down the hall, the questions generated very interesting results. So here I am, starting my game of questions once again. I’ll do a opinion question–every week. First question–

I completely forgot about the Brogues Urban outfitters has right now…I just saw them in the catalogue.  Also probably the best combination EVER–our favorite boot company Frye boots has come out with two pairs of  Oxford shoes (one heeled and one flat)! I think the black heels are awesome! More stylish brogues…

Trends: Brogues

Some people call them “Brogues” others call them “Oxfords.” At first I was a little apprehensive about the shoe, but now I’m dying to get my hands on a pair. You dress them up or down.  They also come in a wide range of colors and have a very comfortable vintage-y feel. They would look great with a pair of dark tights or cropped trousers. Here are some great versions of the Brogue shoe…
