While I love my own blog dearly and so should all of you (I hope!), I’d like to recommend some more style/lifestyle blogs for you all to visit…I’ve just stumbled upon them myself and they’ve all managed to give me my daily style fix…

http://www.vivavenacava.blogspot.com 

The designers duo Vena Cava just started their own blog! They outline many of their current inspirations. You should also check out their khaki collection for gap! So chic and affordable!

 

Fashion Squad- http://www.aperfectguide.se/fashionsquad

gorgeous girl, stunning shoes, and tons of fabulous fashion inspiration!

The model Coco Rocha started a blog as well. It’s interesting to see first hand from a model’s perspective…

 

http://www.losangeles.ohmyrockness.com

This site shows the list of Indie artists playing in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. One of my best friends just let me in on this site. I wish they would add Boston to their list of cities though!

The girl who runs this site has the best shoes EVER! She even got her own shoe line out of it for Urban Outfitters.

Both great sites for inspiration!



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.

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.

Everything Olsen

I know an Olsen twins post. You’re probably sarcastically thinking–wow how original, but seriously these girls have been stylish since well, birth!  Their style is constantly evolving. The two first hit the real style scene in their teens. We can all remember Mary-Kate’s style choices:  the peasant skirts, cowboy boots, starbucks ventis and huge sunglasses.  Ashley’s style was less trendy. She often opted for classic bold pieces making many of her choices timeless.  Recently, MaryKate has taken some style advice from her sister.  The twins pull off the inconceivable look of trendy/classic. I’m here to honor the stylish. So without further adeiu, here is an ode to the Olsen’s.
