Finally! My first outfit post! I must warn you that I haven't actually found a photographer yet, so for the next few outfit posts please be patient with the cropped pictures and self-taken photos. However, the point of this is the clothes, which I think looked great for a day out and about in London. Mind you, I was freezing, but sometimes beauty is pain. Enjoy!

Splendid tank, Anthropology blazer & purse, Urban Outfitters skirt, ray ban sunglasses, BP from Nordstrom sandals


I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has been following me so far, I really appreciate your support! The comments are great, please keep them coming. It helps me to know what you like and what you don't. I'd love it if you pass the word on about my blog to your friends, and if anyone has suggestions about gaining followers let me know! There should be a button on the left side to follow me through blogger, and bloglovin' is also a great way to keep up with my new posts. Expect a new one soon. Thanks!!


A few random pictures I found saved on my computer. Sorry again for the size, this is among the last posts with really small images! Let me know what look you like best!

The Darkest Hour

There's something about a woman in black that brings about a certain attitude. When I look into my wardrobe and realize the amount of black that I own and how often I wear it, it made me wonder if there is maybe a specific emotion that I am subconsciously projecting whenever I put something on. What's your black mood? Does it enhance your attitude or just fit into your wardrobe as a neutral staple?

Also, I tried to take the suggestion for picture size into mind - is this better or still bigger? I really appreciate the feedback , I want this blog to be great for everyone who reads it so suggestions are always welcome!

Find a Ballroom and Let Us Dance

Upon seeing Hana Soukupova in Tatle Russia, I immediately thought of ballroom dancing. Anyone else see the resemblance? Some of my favorite looks below are 5, 7, and 9 for the layout and styling. Other personal favorites?
Note - she has phenomenal legs - jealous!

and the soft light shone

I love this editorial! I think Elle Russia in May 2010 did a phenomenal job mixing compatible elements of style, lighting, and beauty. The photography really tells a story here, and I hope you find it as interesting as I did. Sashi Melnichuk of course looks gorgeous! I think picture 2 is my favorite . . .

American Girl in Paris

I find it hard to believe that in just two short weeks I will be in Paris for my first time ever!! I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself (not to mention I leave for London tomorrow!!). While I was looking around recently I found all these pictures and for some reason or another they all made me thing of Paris. I'm hoping to become inspired and look absolutely phenomenal while I'm there, and outfit posts should be coming soon since I finally have a camera again. Sorry that it's been a few days, the internet in my apartment is having issues and in the craziness that is packing for 7 weeks I haven't had as much time to post as I'd like. But thank you so much to the people who have read my blog, posted, and even follow! You all are the best and I can't express my gratitude enough, I just hope you keep enjoying and pass the word along to your friends. Sorry for all the wordiness, and here are a few thoughts on Paris:

P.S. Just saw Sex and the City 2 tonight and it was WONDERFUL, anyone get the reference in the post's title?
