How excited are you?

August 24th, 2010

Looking at these pictures of Leighton and Blake filming scenes of the upcoming season of Gossip Girl is making me so excited about the new season. Don’t you just LOVE Blair’s outfit?! That skirt is gorgeous. And that bag is to die.

So excited!

I know I linked to a Sex and the City trailer before already, but I can’t help but link this longer version. I’ve watched it over and over again. The scene where Carrie runs into Aiden and his eyes burn with desire…Oh My! I’m gonna leave the hubby and the baby at home and go see it with the girlfriends (ha, just like the girls in the movie except they are going to Abu Dhabi). CAN’T WAIT!!!!

So excited I get the shivers

What Coco Rocha’s wearing

October 6th, 2008

I absolutely adore my fellow Canadian, one of the hottest models of the moment, Coco Rocha’s out of this world good looks, and more importantly her sense of style. I saw this picture of her in NY Time’s Pulse in which she styled herself with inspirations from the Last Tudor. (By the way, anyone watching “The Tudors” on CBC? It’s fantastic. I love me a good period drama). It is absolutely adorable and do-able. And she shops at Aldo! Love her!

The Last Tudor

COCO ROCHA, model.

WHAT I’M WEARING NOW The jacket is from the late 1800s. I got it at Cheap Jack’s. I’ve been waiting until the Paris shows to wear it. Everyone gets decked out there, whereas in New York, people are a bit more laid back. The pants are Rag & Bone — I wear a lot of their stuff — and the shoes are from Aldo.

ALDO? REALLY? I was in a frenzy there the other day. They had all these cute new styles. The salesgirls were like, “You’re Coco!” I was like, “Shhh, I’m not really buying all these shoes.” But I believe if you see something you like and it’s cheap, by all means get it. Just don’t do it head to toe. Carry an expensive bag.

RECENT PURCHASES I bought a lot of good things at Cheap Jack’s: a long black coat with gold trim and these cute 1950s polka-dot jumpsuits. They’re very va-va-voom. But I don’t really shop that much. Models get clothes for free.

RECENT FREEBIES A pair of Louboutin shoes with spikes all over them.

STYLE INSPIRATION The Tudors — that kind of Old World look. I’ve been into it for the past couple seasons. Riding boots, britches, high-collared blouses … But you wear just one piece, and pair it with simple black pants and nice shoes. Or, you know, Aldo.

Remember that dress?

August 20th, 2008


I’m sure everybody remember SJP’s white dress with the huge flower in the SATC movie right? It seemed like a hate-it or love-it dress. I for only totally loved it. Look what I found to be a close replica of the dress! This Celebrity Inspired Sexy Dress by Faviana can be yours for $258 from eDressMe.com. I quite like this slightly subdued and softer version. The flower’s not that extreme and the leaves are a beautiful touch too. I gotta say I might even like this copy better. It is tres sexy.

Whitney has her own show

June 9th, 2008

Well, people just can’t get enough of the Hills’ girls. According to NY Magazine, Whitney Port “is shooting her own spinoff show in which she “becomes bicoastal” while working for PR firm People’s Revolution. She also befriends Olivia Palermo.” Olivia Palermo, if you followed the saga on the now-defunct socialiterank.com last year, was the young aspiring New York socialite that gave the reigning “it” girl Tinsley Mortimer a run for her money, but got “chased” out of the town and moved to L.A. to supposedly pursue an acting career when she couldn’t take the ridicule and the shunning anymore (Of course she denied that). So if Whitney continues to be the level-headed girl that gets along with everybody, we can expect Olivia to stir the pot a bit since she’s prone to drama. I like her, she’s a gorgeous girl.

I’m SATC-obsessed

June 5th, 2008

There I said it. I know, it’s been days and a billion other blogs are talking about the SATC movie, I said I wasn’t going to gush “I LOVED THE CLOTHES, THE SHOES, THE BAGS”. But I can’t help it. I really did. Like I told my guy (who didn’t see it, but pretty much knows everything about the movie due to my nonstop gushing), it was like fashion orgasm! Some of my friends still haven’t seen it and I’m soooo tempted to go see it again with them. I was asked what my favorite outfit was from the movie. I pretty much loved everything they wore in every scene.  Carrie’s green floral dress and green floral coat combo from the opening was to-die-for, and her all-black outfit plus the fedora hat when she and Miranda was shopping for Halloween was so darkly chic. And the girls’ Zac Posen bridemaids dresses were beyong gorgeous. Oh and I looooved Samantha’s outfit, that big poufy off-shoulder top, when she adopted her dog on the street. Really makes me want to get a puffy too!  But I have to tell you, my favorite scene from the movie is when the girls were in Mexico and Carrie slept all day without eating anything, Samantha convinced her to have a little breakfast and started feeding her. She was so tender, and then she winked at Carrie and had that “all-knowing” smile on her face, it was like, you know everything is going to be alright. I got a little misty in the eye. It was a small scene but it really got to me. If you have a friend like Samantha, you are a darn lucky girl. Tell me what your favorite scene was!!
