marc jacobs ! nous adorons tu !

"I remember walking the dog one day, I saw a car full of teenage girls, and one of them rolled down the window and yelled, 'Marc Jacobs!' in a French accent. It just seemed too weird to me. I don't know, maybe they were smoking a joint in the car downstairs from their parents' apartment. I had to go that far to put together a scenario of how they could have possibly recognized me."

anyone can have style, but only fashionistas have courage.

if you were to take a walk around our school, you would probably die.
just kidding. but you might not like many things people are wearing. At our school, most girls are into the abercrombie or hollister look. You know, wearing a "cute" abercrombie shirt with a pair of darkswash skinnies and a pair of uggs. and OMGZZZZZZ ! like, is that a juicy jacket? ohmygoshhhhhh i loooovelovelovelovee it haha tee hee!

fine. maybe I'm going overboard. But I think you get the point.

Even when I have friends that are aber-obsessed, I'm happy to say at least some of them have a teeensy bit of originality and wear some other things from the stores, like a scarf, or a knit sweater. And don't get me wrong, abercrombie jeans are pretty good quality, and I own a super soft grey slouchy shirt from the store that I really love. But sadly, there are still some people who have no originality whatsoever and only wear a uniform of a logo tee, jeans, and uggs every single day.

*gags* no thank you. i don't really feel like advertising for you...

but hey! this doesn't mean there aren't any fashionistas at our school!

Take Lizzi. She's one of my good friends who shops at Urban Outfitters, H&M, American Apparel, and some designer stores frequently. Loooooveee it. She has a great style- although I'm not one hundred percent sure if I can take the liberty of defining it, but I'd say it's L.A. chic with a bit of indie thrown in.

In fact, her and her mom have a fashion blog that is very helpful! You can find it at Check it out or else be cursed by the fashion gods. Just kidding.

Also, I have another awesome dresser of a friend. Because I haven't checked in on with her, I'll just call her D. She shops at Urban Outfitters, like Lizzi, and also with some Free People and Lucky. Equal amour ! XOXOXOOXXX.

And that's it. Better go finish that homework!

GAGA for GaGa

I am such a huge Lady Gaga fan. Many think she's crazy, bizzarre, and a freak, but I beg to differ. Not since Michael Jackson have we met someone with the guts to have an incredible style, great music, and at the same time, not give a crap about what others think of her. Obsessed? Of course!

And guess what? I'm being her for Halloween. I ordered a hairbow online, which I am absolutely praying to god that it comes at the most, before Halloween, but hopefully before two parties that are in a week for one, and the day before Halloween, for another. Ahhhhhhh!!

One itsy bitsy problem though. I have no idea what to wear.
It has to be pretty cheap, because my hair bow was thirty dollars itself. (By the way, it was from England, and international shipping is SUPPOOSEDDD to take a week to twelve days!!!) If you can come up with a fab outfit idea, I will love you. Foreverandeverandeverrrrr.

That's all for today! Comment and I'l also loveee you.

sequins, sequins are so fun, when they're made for everyone.

In case you haven't heard, sequins are making a comeback. And before I continue, I just want to tell you that I swear on Chanel Iman, Vogue, and well. Sequins, that I never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever lie. EVER. Got it? Good.

To continue... well, I'm pretty much in love with sequins. But I've been in love with them for such a long time. Since the start of summer when maybe just ONE designer, I'm not sure who, had like. A shirt completely adorned with sequins. It was amour at first sight.

And now, since fall is seriously here, as in IN-YOUR-FACE here, designers are whipping out trends quicker than you can even utter to yourself "j'adore". And a trend that is evolving? SEQUINS. sequins, sequins, sequins, sequins! all in there magnicifent glory.

But like anything worthwhile, too much is not good. You don't want to end up look this, non?

Sequins are definitely a lot more appropriate for night time, and parties and what-not, but it's super easy to incorporate these beautiful designs into a daytime ensemble, for school.

Balmain always does the most superb/fantastic/insane/epic work with sequins for fall.
This isn't the best picture of what they've made, but a good example. I'm particularily in love with the third outfit. The white tee really balances the glamour from the sequined bandage skirt.

To work sequins into a more modest outfit for school, maybe work, is still quite simple.
I'd suggest instead of being more head-on like wearing the tight tunics Balmain has to offer, but more of... accessories!

*jazz hands here*

Take this for instance.

A beautifully made Coach Poppy bag. It would work for a school bag, and instantly gives your outfit a couple of extra points. In the case if you ever choose to go mime, and wear all black, people will still OOOH and AHHHHH over your outfit with this beauty.
Yay for sequined shoe wear DKNY has these for 98 dollars at net-a-porter right now. Not only will they match with absolutely anything in your wardrobe, but who doesn't love DKNY? Plus, they're less expensive then some other tackier shoe pieces from Coach.

Oh, darn it.
Blogger isn't being a lovely person and isn't letting me upload photos.
Au revoir, mes amies!

Lusting after Louis.

Obviously, this is super old.
Like, ancient older than your tea loving,-lace wearing-curly haired-great-great-grandma-whoIdesperatelyhopeisNOTreadingthis.

But if DIANE VON FURSTENBURG is reading this, you're a cool woman. Wink wink!


Everybody knows that Louis Vuitton makes really awesome bags. Speedy 350, anyone? But in addition to clasic bags, their clothing lines are always super chic, trendy, and above all, FUN to watch. To remind you all, who are right now probably just lusting over the new Spring Ready-To-Wears [ADAM and Peter Som absolutely owned it!] think back to Fall 09.

The playfullness works wonders for an otherwise super sophisticated fashion house, but every single outfit is tied together and just.. CHIC. Must I say anymore?

I hope you have a newfound love for Louis Vuitton as much as I do, now.

One mistake? THIS.

I am sorry I haven't blogged since September 8th! School has officially started, and I was super busy. I also wasn't feeling very inspired, but now I think I am back to blog. It feels good to be writing again. And now, some updates..

1. I have a lovely school bag, which I bought from Deux Lux. They sell mostly to Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie, but also have their own website which had an amazing sale.
2. Started gymnastics! I love it.
3. Made tons of new friends.
4. I'm getting braces on the twelth, though.

That's all for now. I'm going to watch Titanic!

Feel free to leave a comment!
