Look Mom, no hands!

I got a little bored when I came home and had the house to myself, so I started messing with the timer on our camera. I'm getting a little tired of all my fuzzy mirror self-photos. Plus, I learned some new ballet moves in Pilates last night. I think my instructor would not be proud.

street style > fashion week

(photos courtesy of stockholm street style)

I've decided against any '09 spring/summer fashion week coverage, mostly because I've forgotten about anything that stood out. And I'm a little more excited about planning for fall and finding inspiration from regular stylish ladies from across the globe.

My version of the tux

Yves Saint Laurent 1966 Le Smoking tuxedo suit VS. Express

I love the idea of pairing the tuxedo jacket with a pair of American Apparel black lamé leggings. I'd probably wear my white AA deep v-neck tee instead of the button-up, just to make it more slouchy and casual.

Inspiration: Lindsay Lohan

I've been hunting for some gray burnout tees at XXI. I like her leggings too, which look like they could easily be substituted for the black lamé American Apparel ones. I'd need to throw on an oversized blazer or cardigan cuz I'm not sure how I feel about my booty hanging out in pants these tight.

My low-budget photography blogging continues. Too lazy for trimming me out, so please excuse the cluttered space. I like how the fan makes me look so angelic, because I am you know. Ok, Project Runway time.

Here's a rather uninteresting yet incredibly comfy outfit post. I decided to turn it into a lip gloss sell. I thought the pics showed my lips off more than the clothes, so I'll just go with that. This is one of my can't-live-without-and-in-my-bag-at-all-times things, and that is Nars lip gloss in Orgasm. A must must have. I think I horribly embarrassed my brother one time when I gave him cash and sent him in to Sephora to buy it for me. Oh well, memories!

Going to LA

I'm finally going on my first television shoot in Los Angeles. Big deal for me! First order of business is taking a picture of Dana and her Rubik's cube in front of the Hollywood sign. And the second order of business is to see if I can get a tour of the American Apparel factory. And I suppose the third order of business is business, since after all I am there on their dime. I hope to spend some free time thrifting, so if anyone has some pointers or favorite places they'd like to share with me, please do!

When on a budget

I am on a SERIOUS, and regulated, budget. So now I am figuring out a few must-have things for fall that can bring my basics to life for this season. First, lace tights! These are everywhere, and I imagine they have trickled down to Target by now, which is where I plan to pick up a pair. Second, a few statement accessories that I can always find at Forever 21. Third, a pair of oxford pumps. They are classic, and you can wear them with skirts, dresses, jeans, you name it. The ones seen here are from Target. Fourth, a tube of red lipstick. I have a few different shades, but definitely haven't found just the right red. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know. And lastly, my splurge item, which I believe is like 30 bucks, is this American Apparel black scoop dress. This dress makes me very excited. It's sexy, sleek, and can be dressed up or down. I plan to pair it with a few XXI chains, and maybe a thin black belt.
