Obsession | Lana Del Rey

Thursday, February 23, 2012

Ever since an old high school friend (Alexis) posted a video, I've been hooked on miss Lana Del Rey. Whether you know her from her former Lizzy Grant days or are just listening to her songs for the first time today, it's hard to ignore her "Gangster Nancy Sinatra" ways, as she claims. She's oozing with old Hollywood glamour and setting some 60's styled ballads mixed with modern pop as the new sound in the music industry. With her self-made videos for 'Video Games', 'Diet Mountain Dew' and 'Blue Jeans', she's set herself as a creative soul. She landed the cover of British Vogue (among many others) and recently won a Brit Award for International Breakthrough Artist (and no she's not the same like Adele, they're two completely different genres). Her record, "Born to Die" went #1 in 11 countries in its release and Mulberry even named a new bag after her (the "Del Rey")! I don't care if her lips are fake or real or if she doesn't hit every note in her live performances...there's no one quite like her and I love her for it. I even bought her physical CD to support her, that's how obsessed I am with her. I love "Radio", "National Anthem", "Dark Paradise", "Off To the Races"...who am I kidding, I love anything by her. She can do no wrong in my eyes! Have you seen her sick style?! PS: Check out her video for 'Born to Die' if you want some seriously gorgeous cinematography!

OOTD | Comfy Jumper

Monday, February 20, 2012

Like clockwork, it's Monday again and the time seems to be flying by. I don't know what's up with me lately, but I've gone into a "comfy" craze. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for getting dressed up and rockin' something that might not be the most comfortable thing on the planet, but I just can't get enough comfort! But you don't have to sacrifice having fun with your outfits. Oversized everything has been on my mind and I was lucky enough to borrow Lisa's thrifted sweater/jumper! I threw on my favorite hat at the moment, simple jeans, spiked flats, daily ring junk and voila...out the door feeling good! Nothing that makes you stick out, but it's something that makes you feel awesome without trying hard :)

NYFW | Rodarte F/W '12-'13

Friday, February 17, 2012

My favorite collection birthed by Rodarte. The attention to detail in the garments was just stunning. Laura and Kate Mulleavy, creators of Rodarte, definitely brought back the forties with their tailoring. The chunky cabled sweaters, cargo pants, utilitarian shearling jackets and romantic dresses make this label a winner for me. Moving beyond the clothes, which is hard to do, the hair pinned with the must-have starry clips and brilliant shoes make the looks work amazing together. The beauty of it all? It can go from runway --> ready-to-wear.
Enjoy some of my favorite looks!
