aaaaahhhhhh. When I saw this ad in Vogue last week, it was love at first sight.

And my Michael Kors accessories obsession continues...I stopped into the Michael Kors shop at Brea, but they didn't have any left in store because all of the girls working there bought them up right away! If we weren't going on vacation next week, Justin and I would have taken a little roadtrip down to Costa Mesa where they had one left...

65.14. Angel Stadium of Anaheim

While I was down in Orange County this weekend, Justin and I went to the Angels vs. Yankees game! We had these great seats and the weather was gorgeous! I complained about being hot, but I actually did enjoy the sun. I even managed to get a little bit of a suntan (finally!).

One down, twenty-nine to go! Next stop: Fenway!

And yes, we are the LEAST photogenic couple. In the world. : )

current obsession: watches

(images via garance dore, atlantis home, and cupcakes & cashmere)
If you know me, you know that I'm a shoe gal, but lately I've been paying almost as much attention to watches as I do to stilettoes. I am loving these bold looks--especially the Garance photo that features two watches. I like how her watch picks up the pink in her shirt.

fashion icons

One of my resolutions for 2010 is to build a more streamlined, adult wardrobe. Part of this process of streamlining was further defining my personal style. As part of this process, I've put together this list of icons who have and continue to influence my personal style:

katharine hepburn
Ms. Hepburn is one of the first people who popped into my head when I started thinking about my fashion influences. What I taked away from her style is wearing menswear while still looking feminine.

gracy kelly
Super feminine, clean lines, simple elegance.

coco chanel
Chanel is one of those designers who would be taking up a large part of my closet real estate if my budge allowed it. I love how innovative Chanel is while remaining classic.

kate lanphear
I like Kate's edgy minimalism. She always looks flawlessly put-together without looking like she tried at all.

caroline sieber
I love this Chanel stylist's modern feminine style. I also love that she wears a lot of skirts and shorts because that's how I like to dress.

catherine deneuve
I feel like Catherine's style was very sexy without being trashy and overt. I love the glamour!

Who do you turn to for your style inspiration?

"...I wanted you to see something about her--I wanted you to
see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with
a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you being but you
begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but
sometimes you do..."

satc 2

This will probably be terrible, but obviously I will go see it in the theaters and then buy it when it comes out on dvd. Which is, of couse, why there are making it.

Over the weekend, Valerie and I made these fun hairpins! We've been wanting to do something with these butterflies since we first saw them in Michael's.

Loving the hair & makeup (and the clothes, of course). I might have to cut my hair like this for fall...

professional attire

(via ann taylor, banana republic, garance dore, j.crew & shopbop)
I sometimes struggle with looking cute/inspired for work. I work in the financial industry, so I need to look professional and polished, but I also want to look young and fashion forward at the same time. I think the above images accomplish all of the above.
