Don’t you wish you could be as lucky as Betty and jump up high, right next to the Seine? Lucky duck.

For the love of stripes.

This gorgeous sweater by APC–available at Creatures of Comfort— is a tad out of my price range, seeing that it is $223, but I am still allowed to dream and covet, right? Sigh. I have been trying to find a more affordable version elsewhere, yet am still searching, so if you have any leads shoot them my way! SPxx

Handsome fellas.

Yum. Need I say more?

pretty things.

Two things I look for in jewelry…simplicity, and humor. Prismera has the elegant details and slight texture that I love to find in bracelets and earrings, and Emily Elizabeth Jewelry keeps it light and fun with her necklace designs. Don’t you get a kick out of the saltine cracker? I am also loving these pieces—spotted on A Cup of Jo—by Blanca Monros Gomez. SPxx

Obsessed with: Ramona West and Dear Golden

February 25, 2009

My friend R of the blog, Lex and the City, recently told me about this cool Etsy shop called Ramona West. I checked it out and instantly fell in love. Then, while perusing my friend Joanna’s blog, Cup of Jo, I saw an Etsy shop on her site that looked neat called Dear Golden. Again, hook, line and sinker. Love at first sight. So much so, that I an picked some more favorite pieces and put together an outfit, which I posted today on Budget Fashion Report. The two online boutique have really different styles and pieces, but are really inspiring and fun to browse through and shop. Here are a few of my favorite items from both. Enjoy!

More about ankle socks.

February 24, 2009

032108_sevigny_200x400So, it seems some of my favorite looks include,  well anything that involves oxfords, and apparently, ankle socks. I posted about them yesterday on both Style Pill and Budget Fashion Report and made the statement that I am going to give this look (short socks with heels) a go when it becomes warmer. I like Chloe Sevigny’s look in this photo—which I apologetically cannot remember where I found it, so sorry—because although she does have her shirt buttoned all the way up to her neck, she still remains looking feminine and flirty by showing some leg.

P.S. Since I was only able to post once today on SP, click here to see two new posts from BFR! SPxx

I heart Alexa Chung.

My oh my, that Alexa Chung and her style! Pretty amazing in my book. I am really digging the look she’s got going on here. The jacket and the striped sweater are my favorite pieces, and I also love the little socks. I just posted about little ruffly ones on BFR and have decided that my goal for spring is to pull this look off as much as can once it gets warmer. What do you think of her look? And, what do you think of little socks, heels and bare legs? SPxx

Why, hello weekend! So glad you’re here.

This is one of those looks that makes me go all soft inside. So, I have decided to break it down and explain everything I love about it. To start, sorry about this, but the fur looks great. I know, I know! But, who knows, maybe it’s fake? One can hope. Anyway, I like the belt she chose, which adds an interesting element to the jacket. And the touch of the cuffed sleeves showing the lining plus whatever cardigan she is wearing underneath is genius. The dress peeking out through the bottom opening of the coat drives me crazy in the best way possible because now I’m dying to see what the whole piece looks like. Plus the pattern looks so flowy and feminine. And then there are the accesories. Great bag, check. To-die-for shoes, check. And, I can only guess that is a hat in her hand? Oh, the intrigue…Spxx
