Can I borrow you?


Wouldn't it be amazing if you could go to the library and borrow beautiful designer garments just like books? So that when you have an interview and you want to look smashing you don't have to go out and spend a billion bucks, but you can look like you did? Well, these would be a couple of my interviewing attire picks. Lanvin. To die for.

I heart: Meryl Streep

The other night at the SAG awards I was so touched by Meryl Streep's speech when she won Best Actress for Doubt. It was so uplifting to hear her speak so proudly of women in her industry. We ladies really need to pool together and lend that emotional support to one another during these times. Maybe it was the decade I spent in all-girls schools that leaves me in need of this kinship and role models, but we really need to be there for one another (Anne of Green Gables bosom buddy-style). Even though I wasn't alive in the 60s, sometimes I think it wasn't all that different.

Meryl Streep is, to me, such a classic, natural beauty! I adore her "I don't care" attitude and I LOVE that she wore pants to the awards, and still looked hot!

Is it bad that I am actually considering taking a part-time job at Club Monaco so I can get a discount on this sweet sweet baby that must be mine? It is perfection. Collar not too big, Slanty zipper. Those tab things on the bottom. I'm dying.

Boy Chic: Jane Birkin

I just adore Jane Birkin. She just oozes with cool, but at the same time looks like she doesn't care or try at all. Some highlights on Jane: she was married to Sergé Gainsbourg and is mother to Charlotte Gainsbourg. And she obviously was the inspiration for the Hermés Birkin bag, which is a bag I must own before I die (or a really great knock-off...blasphemy!). It's perfect in its modern, geometric shape and can carry just about anything.

Me, my new shoes, and my messy room.

Banana Republic dress, Old Navy jacket, JCrew pumps, UO bracelet

Oh my gosh, I've been trying to upload photos all day! Finally! Pardon the mess, I had just come home from the airport the day before. So anyways, here's an outfit from a few days ago (hard to see here, I have NO space to take full body photos!). Went out to our favorite Italian place for my hubby's birthday (Bellini's, if anyone lives in Dallas). And ta-da! New cheetah pumps from JCrew! Santa (aka mama) got them for me for Christmas. I know this is a terrible photograph but I was too excited to capture them. More to come later.

My new years resolution is to take better photos, but part of me likes this crummy, poorly outlined, low-budget style photography. We'll see. Happy new year! And thanks for the lovely comments! They really mean a lot to me.
