Monday Muse: Giuliana Rancic

Giuliana Rancic is always dressed perfectly. And her hair always looks amazing. I usually tune into watch E! News and the Fashion Police just to see what shes wearing. I dream of having long perfect locks like hers. Shall I get hair extensions?










Rainy Monday...

The dreary days of gloom, rain and cold weather are upon us. It was nearly 11a.m before I decided to drag myself out of the sea of warm blankets pilled on my bed and attempt to start this day. It’s apparent that fall is officially here; temperature dropped tremendously during the night and my town-house was freezing this morning. Thermostat Reads: 58. Guess I should turn off the a.c?

Sometimes I think life would be much more exciting if it had a sound track. You know how random songs play through out reality T.V shows? Today’s song would defiantly be “Rainy Monday” by Shiny Toy Cars. Great! Now I have that song playing over and over in my head. I hate when this happens! Uggghhh… At least it isn’t something ridiculous this time, like that time I woke up at 3a.m with David Guetta’s “Sexy Bitch” playing over and over in my head. I was sure I was going to go insane. To this day I refuse to listen to that song.

While it may be drizzling rain, fall is still my favorite season. Cooler temperatures mean that it’s time to bring out the boots, stockings, furs and scarves. Outfit of the day: shorts, stockings and one of my favorite motorcycle jackets. Bad weather seems to increase my procrastination and decrease my motivation. Only solution to this problem: fabulous shoes! If I look great, I feel great and for some strange reason I instantly become more productive. I believe that it’s time to bring out my most recent purchase; my new “Lorissa” heels by Sam Edelman. The spikes and sparkle are an instant mood enhancer. A little over the top for running errands and grocery shopping…Maybe?


Outfit of the Day:
Topshop Distressed Shorts
H&M Black Stockings
American Apparel Charcoal Tank
Sam Edelman “Lorissa” Heels
H&M Spike Bracelet
Marc Jacobs “Nemo Nisi Mors” Bracelet
Random rings from local boutique
Ny & Co. Black Leather Motorcycle Jacket
H&M Red Hat

Wear Purple


Recently there are have been some eight tragic suicides by gay teens. Suicide is a very sad situation, today myself as well as many others across the world have decide to wear purple in honor of their memory. What makes this situation sad is that all of these young teenagers were bullied and harassed for their sexuality and being different. I remember when I was younger, I was taught to love people for who they are and not what they look like. How their sexuality, or who they love make this any different? This isn't about their sexuality, or the way they were. This is about them, and being there for them in their passing and being a support group for their families and friends. I am wearing purple today in order to support them. My best friend was Gay and I remember how hard it was for him to come out to his fellow classmates as well as his family. I hope that you too will support them by wearing purple; even if you are against it, wear it for the sake of the young ones who have tragically taken their life to early.

I hope you will join me and the many others who will be wearing purple today.
XOXO

Faux vs.Real

There’s something so Glamorous about Fur. But with that there’s also mixed emotions and I begin getting images of Peta videos flashing in my head. I usually only buy real fur if it’s vintage or shaved. It recently took my 4 months to finally break down and buy one of those fox-tail chains to hang off my bag. The thought of a helpless animal dying just so I can have his tail makes me sad. So I’m trying not to think about it. This season luckily we have so many great faux options. Gone are the days that faux fur looks like ur wearing a big hairy stuffed animal that you won at the local fair. For a few seasons now I’ve been rocking fur vest and coats… but recently my addiction has went into over drive and I seem to be buying every faux fur vest and jacket I can get my hands on. After seeing these photos in the November issue of Elle I knew I had to repost them.

The Count Down to Nov 23rd


We are only weeks away from the debut. And if I wasn’t excited already…H&M recently released this photo of Lanvin for H&M. I am now even more anxious about this collection. Who wants to camp out in the mall with me?
