And it'll be Wonderful

Something about cold weather brings out the Cher in me and I start to adore fringe and ruffles.
Over the summer I stopped into the 3.1 Phillip Lim store in Soho and nearly died. And even though I may have the sense of humor of an idiotic frat boy I have a weakness for the girliest of dresses. Besides, this orange punches it up a bit. $695
Does this dress not scream New Year's Eve party? Okay, it actually screams birthday party but, as you may well know, my birthday is December 31. Whatever, white is awesome and people need to wear it more. $695
Pink and ruffly, kind of a disturbing mix of Blair Waldorf and whatever Jennifer Love Hewitt's character's name is on The Ghost Whisperer. Let's pretend that I've never watched that show. Or not, she has some cute clothes on it and that's the main appeal. But I promise I haven't watched it in about 2 years, is it even on any more? $98

These are perfection, so let's not even bother with whatever sad-o comments I have. $135

Pausing Just to Say

Remember those Chanel tights that I love? They are so groovy with their two-tonedness, but who wants to pay a boatload of money on a pair of tights? Uhh, apparently Urban Outfitters has come to the rescue.
I definitely like the Chanel tights more, but there's something about these that make me want to slip on a short little bandage dress and transport myself to the 90's and dance on tables with beautiful Europeans and pout like Claudia Schiffer. $14 from Urban Outfitters

My Summer (in a nutshell)


Driving me Insane

Thank you Gossip Girl for ending that whole "I CAN WEAR PANTS AS TIGHTS!" thing that has been annoying me to no end.
My roommate over the summer had a habit of wearing long (but not long enough) t-shirts with no pants and not seeing anything wrong with it. Really, I had disciplinary meetings with her just like the one on Gossip Girl (okay, it was more like, "What the hell are you doing?" and "Maybe you wouldn't get harassed by the homeless if you wore pants.") but it did absolutely nothing.
Wear pants kids.

Put You on the Screen

These Givenchy shoes make me want to be Wonder Woman. Oooh I would wear them with skinny black pants, a white oxford, and my leather jacket and then BAM when trouble broke out I would tear off my clothes revealing a fantastic super hero outfit and save the day. Plus I would look fantastic, and that's what really matters.

Fashion Icon, Patsy Stone:

She was kind of a sex addict and an alcoholic, but even when I was 9 and watching Absolutely Fabulous with my mother and grandmother I knew there was something special about Patsy. Who could not love the big blonde hair, Chanel suits, and leather mini skirts?

Heaven Looks a Lot Like San Francisco

My proctor at the SATs yesterday looked like Allen Ginsberg, so how about a little poem by Carlo Marx himself?

I'm happy, Kerouac, your madman Allen's
finally made it: discovered a new young cat,
and my imagination of an eternal boy
walks on the streets of San Francisco,
handsome, and meets me in cafeterias
and loves me. Ah don't think I'm sickening.
You're angry at me. For all of my lovers?
It's hard to eat shit, without having visions;
when they have eyes for me it's like Heaven.

Never Fear, the Jumpsuit Wasn't Orange

It was nice and cold today, the first real fall day! Of course some one got mugged right by campus and we were on lock down all during my Astronomy block while the cops searched the neighborhood for a certain jumpsuit wearing 16 year old boy with a knife. Unfortunate. But let's get back to the lovely cold weather and look at some coats.

I have always had a love for Trench Coats. Apparently nearly every SAT tutor has a similar love, but in black. Awkward, but this trench is far more stylish than anything a professional standardized test tutor could manage. That's not to say that I don't think that everyday people should have good style. Penguin trench, $295

If Miami had a real winter I'd expect to see plenty of coats like this one. Anthropologie Kaleidoscopes Coat, $168

Aquascutum will never stop making me love their clothes, and isn't orange a perfect fall color? Aquascutum Hatia coat, $2,900

"Lipstick is Red, Right?"

My latest shopping list, because you all care so much.

Sephora's nail polish is affordable, in great colors, and actually lasts. I was wearing that turquoise for a while but it's always sold out now. I think the lilac is my new choice. $2

American Apparel's models can hardly get any sluttier. But you know, I dig these thigh highs, and who can go wrong with something featured in Penthouse? $15

I'll never stop wearing pointy toed flats. Unfortunately I've grown disillusioned with the pairs that I have now. I do believe that I need these. $38
