Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley modeled for Alexi Lubomorski in Numéro Tokyo's latest edition and I'm in love with this shoot. This editorial is all angles from the mirrors to the angles of Rosie's face and the chosen angles of the photo that show the photographer. Everything is sharp even her hair letting the soft makeup and clothing be the focus of the editorial. Photos via Fashion Gone Rogue.

Work Hard, Play Hard

The last few seasons the sporty look has been a huge trend with mesh fabric and wedge sneakers. The trend is becoming more and more mainstream while at the same time taking a more straightforward approach. The rend now consists of actual sports jersey and high tops instead of small sporty details. I personally love the look of a bright pair of sneakers (my newest pair are bright red) and am now looking for a great jersey (New York Giants or nothing). These jerseys look great paired with more feminine pieces such as heels. Even if you think jerseys as dresses or worn with cutoffs aren't for you it's always great to grab a jersey and rep your team.

Make the Cut

This summer and into the fall cutout ankle booties are the it shoe. I've made multiple posts about my favorite shoe, the Balenciaga, (here), but there are more affordable options. If you're intimidated by the idea of these boots just pair them with a pair of skinny jeans and a simple t-shirt. Since these boots look great with everything they very will may be your new go to shoe when you need to add some great details to a basic outfit. For those with a more feminine style these boots may still be for you; pair these boots with a flowy dress for some juxtaposition. The fashion risk-takers may want to pair them with dresses or with cutoff shorts as seen on these women.

Warby Parker Brings the Roaring 20s Back

When it comes to style the details are key in taking your look from everyday to something memorable. These details can be the texture of the material, subtle draping of the clothes, or your accessories. This is especially important for items you wear everyday such as glasses. Seen as merely functional by some people the style of glasses are often overlooked, but that is a mistake. When choosing glasses you should consider face shape, skin coloring, and your personal style.

Warby Parker is a prescription eyewear company that creates affordable but stylish, vintage inspired specs. A pair of glasses from Warby Parker also benefits others, because for every pair of gasses brought another is distributed to a person in need. The 1922 Collection is their newest collection that looks like it would fit perfectly in a speakeasy or the soon to be released Great Gatsby movie. A mix of thin gold frames and tortoiseshell patterns the glasses each model comes in a sunglasses version. These glasses are perfect for those who aren't afraid to make the statement that the carefree 1920s are back.

The eyeglasses from the 1922 Collection can be found here and the sunglasses can be found here. Warby Parker glasses start at ...

Bright Light

Canary Yellow

Lanvin satin strapless dress, $2,420 / Marc Jacobs shirt / Moschino Cheap & Chic , $62 / L.A.M.B. strappy heels / Satchel bag / Marc by Marc Jacobs marc and marc jacob, $46 / NARS Cosmetics / Nail care

One of the big colors this spring is canary yellow. This bright color is perfect for warm weather and is a great way to add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral outfit. For those who aren't afraid of color this color looks amazing as a solid dress. Whether prints or solids yellow looks great paired with almost any other color. On the runway, this color was worn as a bold pantsuit or a slightly mellow, lace sheath dress. This color can fit any style from the feminine to the edgy.

A Whole New Level of Obsession/ Borderline Stalking

Shoe Obsessions

Balenciaga / Yves Saint Laurent high heel sandal / Valentino high heel sandal / Chloé pointy toe boots, $1,305 / Chloé platform sandals / Christian Louboutin / Alexander Wang snake skin pumps

You know how they say some people have champagne taste on a beer budget well they were talking about me. My obsession with fashion is love/hate. I love going seeing what's new and imagining how I'd wear something, but hate seeing the prices. This becomes the most evident when it comes to shoes. Inevitably I spend hours scouring websites trying to find dupes for the designer shoes I love only to realize that those dupes fall short because they lack the sleek, effortless silhouette that seems to scream luxury. I have very specific taste and once I see a piece I instantly imagine what the perfect shoe for that trend would look like for me. To be fair a lot of the designer shoes often fall short too because of this specificity, but above are a few shoes that just scream perfect. (The Alexander Wang Joan heels could not be found so they were switched out for a similar style.) These are the shoes that need to stay out or come back for when I'm not a college student and have money to actually buy them. I either need to lower my standards or start designing shoes myself otherwise I'll always be disappointed.

ASOS Holiday Lookbook 2012

The ASOS Holiday Lookbook is out and I love almost every outfit and piece of jewelry. My favorite look is the printed sheath and when it becomes available, depending on the price, I want it. The ASOS lookbook veers from the stereotypical holiday looks. The scalloped, sequin blouse paired with black trousers is dressy and not the LBD everyone expects. The tunic shirt paired with the knee-length skirt creates a lean, monochrome look that is festive but edgy. Out of all the jewelry the bejeweled statement necklace and the collar stuck out. Which is your favorite look?
