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…

Let’s face it, the rock and roll lifestyle is awesome. 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…

Obsession: Yoga Inspired Jewelry
August 15, 2009, 2:11 pm
Filed under: Obsessions | Tags: , , , , , ,

Yoga has been around forever, but only recently has yoga inspired fashion. I’ve been experimenting with yoga for about two years now. I love the serenity and calmness that comes with the practice. Jewelry designers have utilized the symbols for peace within yoga (like the Om symbol, the tree of life, the lotus etc) and made gorgeous jewelry designs. One of my favorite designers is Satya Jewelry. Satya means “truth.” The company was started by designers Satya and Beth. They combine spiritual symbols, healing gemstones and the principles of yoga into their creations. Also, a percentage of their proceeds goes to various childrens’ organizations through the Satya foundation. The jewelry is so gorgeous! Celebrities such as Rachel Bilson and Courtney Cox have worn their designs.  I can’t wait to get one of their gold necklaces!

If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some dandelions in your hair…

Filed under: San Francisco, Shopping | Tags: , , , , , , ,

After a long six hour drive of missing important freeway exits, slowing down at the smallest whimper of my radar detector, and obsessively sipping my caramel frappacino, I’m finally back from San Francisco! I had an amazing weekend with my girls! Here are some great pictures of some shopping we did along the way that I’d love to share with you! 

IMG_0401First of all, How amazing are these shoes?! My friend Becca bought them on Haight street. After flipping through Elle Magazine (the September Issue), Becca decided that she needed some purple suede heels as soon as possible. On Haight St. in Ambiance, we found this gorgeous pair. Now they may look expensive, but they were only $38!!! They’re by Anne Michelle. I think they’re just perfect for Fall. With a pair of knee high stockings and a cute mini, they would be adorable! 

Becca pairs her shoes with a cream colored blouse and a black skirt both from H&M

On Haight, I made a few finds of my own. In my favorite store, Wasteland I found a Yves Saint Laurent variation jacket. It’s a really beautiful peacoat with slightly puffy sleeves. When I bought the jacket, the guy who rung me up told me that the variation collection is the funkier/less old lady side of YSL. The variation side is younger and more fun to wear. You can find more YSL variation on Ebay. I especially love the buttons on the jacket. I bought the jacket for $68.

I also found really great stuff at H&M. Is it me or has the store gotten significantly more expensive? Still cute…but isn’t H&M supposed to be relatively cheap way to sport trends? I bought a great purple velvet shift dress. (An awesome way to rock the velvet trend I have previously blogged about!) I can’t wait to find boots to pair the dress with! 

Later in the week, My friends and I went to Anthropologie. Let’s just say we did some damage this weekend. Heidi and Becca both walked away with really cute finds at Anthro. Becca found this great yellow cropped jacket. Her style is very old-fashioned so this fits her perfectly!
