Penelope and Coco

Catch me on the way to class, on the subway, or out with friends, and there is a 99% chance I am wearing high heels. This "wintery-mix", as likes to refer to it as, kind of weather is not exactly heel friendly. Still, I just can't bring myself to toss my favorite pair of vintage brown leather heels to the side. What's a girl to do? There are sheets of ice on the sidewalks, and sometimes even several inches of snow, and I have found it nearly impossible this season to find a more practical shoe option. However, I recently stumbled across a shoe line that made me eat my words! Penelope and Coco adorable and definitely more weather appropriate collection of unique oxfords shoes! Throw on some nice wool tights, or high waisted slacks, with a pair of Penelope and Coco shoes and you can forget about having to compromise your style for the sake of being warm! I'll take a size 5.5 in each, please.

The Run Down


(Info via Press Release)

Versace showcased their Men's Collection for FW 2011-12 in Milan on Monday, January 17. The show was also live streamed via their Facebook page for their 375,000-plus fans. This season’s Versace collection for men presents an optical game of shapes, proportions,colors and graphics, conducted with a knowing and contemporary nod. Instead the luxurious aspect of the collection comes from the fine fabrics used and the expert tailoring employed. I wish more boys would dress like this…

This season I have posted about several lovely collections by a few of my personal favorite designers. Frankly, these lookbooks have featured numerous garments that I still dream (literally I dream about clothes all the time hah) of wearing some day. That being said, other than the collections I have already featured on my blog, I found this season rather bland. You may agree or disagree with my on this one, it's just my personal opinion. However, I have recently come across a plethora of Japanese designers that I find just as inspiring as the aforementioned designers I most frequently post about.  Take this Japanese label, Aquagirl, for example isn't it absolutely stunning. This line encompasses the glamour of the 1940's, yet has a combination of 1950's and 1960's mod silhouettes thrown into the mix. Needless to say, I'm in love.

Happy New Year

Dress: FCUK Tights: UO Bag: Vintage (my moms gave it to me) 

 Hope you all have a very happy and healthy new year! Winter term started yesterday so, as you can imagine, it has been difficult to find time to sit down and take a breather... let alone write a decent post! Have no fear though! I will be sure to post later this week! Here are two outfits from this weekend. It is a shame you can not see the structured (really cool) silhouette of the green floral dress below, because of how I am sitting. Luckily, that won't be a problem for long! A good and talented friend of mine is an awesome photographer, and we intend to have a photo shoot ASAP! I can not wait to show you all my new dresses, and to step up my game on the outfit shots! I have so many outfits that I have yet to post, it's crazy.  In the mean time here are two photos taken by the lovely and talented Sam DeSantis. As you can see these pictures were just for fun; but wait until you see her when she gets to work! She's got a real eye for art and photography that girl...
