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…

Second obsession–A few accessories from Barney’s (hopefully no summary required) that I would also love to own…

Third Obsession—Black Cab Sessions

Most recently Lykke Li was in the passenger seat.

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.

A Preppy Post…

As you should all know, I’m spending this summer in Nantucket.  The vacation destination has a reputation for being pretentiously preppy.  I’ve never really been into seersucker pants, polo shirts or boat shoes.  Living in the city, my style has always gravitated towards the edgy, dark colored, studded look.  Since it’s not really practical to wear black all summer (I’ve debated this many times), I’ve decided to test the preppy waters.  I’m not saying I’m going to be popping my collar any time soon, but there are a few preppy additions I have added to my everyday apparel.  Here are some easy ways to incorporate summer prep into your wardrobe without going by the name Muffy or Chip.
