Fake Fur

I love the idea of a fake fur coat to go out in! The shaggier fur the better; however, I think coats that end at the hip look best..

Of the Moment 2…

Ok so here are some more of my current obsessions…as I am still in Nantucket and the sun has yet to come out for more than a few hours…

1st obsession: the new Vogue shoot with Cameron Diaz-June Issue

While the magazine may be a timeless classic, no offense to Anna Wintour, but in recent years it has been severely lacking.  Attempting to bring more culture into the magazine with the addition of articles such as workings of an underrated Soho artist or scientific research on the newest beauty frontier, Vogue has seemed to have strayed from the magazine’s priority–fashion. I think the magazine should leave beauty investigation and artistic reviewing to sister mags and drift back into strictly fashion.  In recessionary times such as these, a girl needs her Vogue to keep level headed (as contradictory as that may sound).  

Enough criticism, In Vogue’s most recent issue, one aspect really stood out in my mind–Cameron Diaz’s photo shoot.  The photographers manage to play up Cameron’s easygoing Californian way of life.  In all of the photographs, Cameron is wearing organic clothing.  The creamy white hues look sensational with her tanned skin and blonde tresses.  The set of the shoot was just as amazing as Cameron Diaz herself.  The Parker hotel in Palm Springs is a place I urge you to visit. I visited the hotel last spring with my mother on our spa trip to the desert. While the place was out of our price range, we managed to venture there for brunch.  Upon entering the lobby, It’s as if every piece of the hotel was hand picked for the location. With retro chic furniture, desert hot heat, and absolute luxury, the hotel should been seen as a hot spot destination for anyone planning a trip to Palm Springs.

2nd obsession: Stars wearing Rodarte on the red carpet…

Staying true to my fellow Pasadena natives, I’d like to point out some recent Rodarte sightings.

3rd Obsession: Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christenson in Paris

I’ve always loved Rachel Bilson’s style, but the two of them together? In paris? It’s all just too much.  She’s somehow evolved her style into perfectly Parisian chic.

Of the Moment…

With no job, no money, and no sun, I’ve been fighting off inside boredom with the help of Kobe, my macbook.  I’ve been fashion blog/magazine reading like nobody’s business.  I’ve come up with a few current obsessions in no particular order–a medley of blogs, trends, looks and celebrities that I can’t stop talking about. 

First obsession–the store Opening Ceremony:

Aimed at the young and obscenely wealthy with some pieces of clothing ranging into the thousands, Opening Ceremony is a very expensive store.  With two locations: New York and Los Angeles, Opening Ceremony carries a lot of brand new designers.  The clothing may be expensive, but you are really paying for the innovation.  The store carries pieces you won’t see anywhere else. When I visited the store’s La Cinega Blvd location just last year (for inspiration solely), I stumbled upon actress Chloe Sevigny’s collection. This year, on the store’s website I fell in love with few pieces designed by model and Alexander Wang muse Erin Wasson.  This store has Nylon Magazine written all over it.  Here are a few pieces I would love to own…

Fourth Obsession—A few celebs to throw into the mix

1. Michelle Monaghan

 The dress is pretty crazy, but I think the print works because of the dress’ simple classic cut.  

2. Diane Kruger

 I love the ladylike (hairstyle and skirt) with the edgy boots and leather jacket.
