KOOPLES COUPLES FALL '12
KOOPLES FALL 2012
KOOPLES, my favorite line ever. How crazy good looking is this Fall line? I’m obsessed with those pointy boots and eagle belt. It’s so rock ‘n roll. Oversized jackets, leather gear… And I see a trend in mermaid skirts picking up. True or false?
This is my dream hallway. I love the soft grey walls and framed photos lining the stacked on the walls. Check out your latest edition of RUE!

ZARA FALL 2012
That’s my girl! Styling here is so nicely-done.
Chic and casual everyday hat. $168 from Steven Alan
I always try to throw in some new music hanging around my mind. Here’s a girl that’s bound for greatness. Thanks B.
I’m really digging this chick’s style. She’s got a great eye for trends and knows what works for her. Click here to check out her blog.
I’m still drooling over this bag. CELINE TRAPEZE. I would love it in the nude or this army green color.
Bags seem to be the point where I am the pickiest and find it to be one of the most difficult decisions in terms of completing my style. I’ve had PRADA on my mind for some time now. It’s one of the most timeless and classic pieces. But here’s few with an updated take on their classics. Is this me? I’m really leaning towards the tote. What do you think?
Elin Kling, you’re a blogging machine! This chick has been working her tail off, blogging, interviewing, designing, and working on a million different projects. Well, the work paid off and now she’s launching a collection for GUESS Marciano. Take a look at her blog post for today and tell me you’re not inspired by all of her accomplishments.
STAND OUT STATEMENT
This is what I’m talking about! These shoes are killer. This chic normally has a great understated look to her, but I love how she really stood out in these shoes. Love those Louboutins!
Probably my favorite hairstyle is the classic “Chignon”. “The word ‘chignon’ comes from the French phrase “chignon du cou,” which means nape of the neck.” It’s been popularized across the globe from Ancient Greece to Ancient China. Wikipedia. Word. I can hear the NBC PSA now, the more you know…
WISE MEN SAY
Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something. -Plato
So my never-ending ideas for my home continue to pervade my everyday thoughts and actions. Whatever it was that inspired cavemen to first illustrate their human lives on walls, clay figures, and other surroundings, is a part of me I guess. I’m constantly imagining and re-imagining my world around me. The first two photos (one is Elie Saab’s home) resemble my style and...
ABOUT TIME: LIU WEN
NY TIMES article It was, in other words, hardly fated that a girl from China’s pig country would go on to become, as Liu has, the first Asian model to be the global face of Estée Lauder, the first Chinese model to walk the Victoria’s Secret runway and one of the most booked Asian runway models in the world.
ELVIS PICKS TODAY
Here’s a couple of things on my mind today, Summer. Thank you for clearing the skies a bit today here in NYC; I was getting sick of all that rain! But now that it’s cleared up a little, I feel like so has my mind. Ok now beautiful blue skies, do your magic!

LIGHT THE NIGHT WHITE
I have two items on my mind right now, a leather jacket and oh-so-flowy-glowy white pants from Zara. Head-to-toe white is a bold look that’s white hot right now (I’ve been saying this forever guys!) but it’s such an elegant, vintage glam feel that you can pull off. Mix up the textures in the gear. I like it best when only one piece is oversized. And don’t forget to...
MCA PASS THE MIC
If you can feel what I’m feeling then it’s a musical masterpiece But if you can hear what I’m dealing with then that’s cool at least What’s running through my mind comes through in my walk True feelings are shown from the way that I talk And this is me, y’all-I M.C., Y’all my name is M.C.A. and I still do what I please And now I’d like to introduce...
CELINE VAN AMSTEL BY STEFANO VITI FOR FASHION GONE...
This is undoubtedly some of the most inspiring photos for this season. Slicked back hair, strong and structured, yet airy apparel. via FASHION GONE ROGUE
LOOK OF THE MOMENT
NY TIMES How does she do it? She always manages to look so elegant and effortless in her wardrobe choices. Plain-faced with bold nails, Paltrow’s got it. I will always remember the pleasure I had meeting her for that big night out last year. She is more beautiful up-close people.
I know the pants are from ASOS, but I’m more in love with that top. The whole look goes well together, except I’m not a big fan of linen. Too many wrinkles! Anyhow, I’m looking for suggestions on how to improve my blog. Tell me what you think? (via ASOS.com)
HATS ON MY HEAD
Hats are completely on my mind today. Well, usually they’re on my mind a lot more than that. I’m totally in love with them. Two things I think people should have for everyday wear is a good pair of jeans and a nice hat (hello sunprotection - yes one word). But to be honest, I feel that I don’t look very good in them. I’m actually very jealous of people that can...

ISABEL MARANT AW 12 boots
Reflecting on my earlier post about the Kooples. This chick, Sophie, has the best look I’ve seen for their ads. They have some new inspiration around however…None other than, Pete Doherty.
PIERRE BALMAIN PRE FALL 2012
I’m crazy about this collection’s structured business-casual looks. The tailored pants look smart with a feminine silhouette. Balmain has always been one of my faves. I love how they use sheer with leather, sharpening them up with some masculine traditionals. J’adore.
ACNE PRE-FALL 2012
I also pulled this from Elin’s sight. Thank God for Elin. She’s always been my go-to girl when I’m looking for something to motivate.
AND WE'RE BACK...
I haven’t blogged in the longest time. Anyways, I’m back to trying to pull inspiration together again. This was Elin’s inspiration for the day. Back to basics folks. All I want in my life is some simplicity, focus, and clarity.
CHLOE : FLOAT LIKE A BUTTERFLY
Janie Taylor for Chloé on Nowness.com.
DINARA CHETYROVA. This girl has such an awesome look. She’s been on runways for Mackage, Christian Siriano, and Alice + Olivia recently, but I can definitely see her taking on more. She has a unique and elusive look that can be both smoldering and peaceful. Not to mention she has great style, too.
CAROLINE… I’m so in love with this leather-mesh inspired skirt. The way she styled this look is perfection. Simple edgy skirt, casual tee, and sexy bed head looks unbelievable girlfriend! Top from Filippa K, skirt from altewai.saome and shoes from H&M via CAROLINESMODE.com
Good Morning! This is my view from my room. Not sure why it came out so blurry… Maybe still too tired from all the mayhem from this weekend. Renovations are still under way, and decorating ideas will never stop.
This weekend I had a lot of fun shopping and chillin with my homies. The top are shoes from TOPSHOP that I thought looked cute. Low heeled booties with a slither of gold on the bottom. The next is my shopping outfit in Soho with some friends from out of town. We ended the night with drinks at Pegu Club. The last is a photo of me (far left) with some of the best girlfriends around. ...
Thank you for the inspiration alltheirresistible.tumblr.com !
COUPLE OF THINGS
There are a couple of things on my mind right now. Number 1, some place warm because this city is freezing already! And second, something pretty… I found these two lovelies on STYLE.COM’s most wanted list for Spring. I love the edgy cuffs on both of these items. They’re interesting details like the lock around your ankles on the stilettos and the leather wrap around your...
Her hair is awesome. Why can’t my short hair look like that? I’m just saying…
Did you buy the new Style.com Magazine? I love this sort of retro look on this model. And her awesome over-the-knee ISABEL MARANT boots with fringe on the sides. I’ll try to find a better photo. But I love her hair! Maybe I’m just missing my longer locks…
LAST NIGHT I went to a private screening of BREAKING DAWN Part I with my record label family. We had the whole theater to ourselves, eating and drinking… I have to admit I’m a fan of Kristen Stewart’s style. Check out behind the scenes from her February cover photo shoot on VOGUE. And check out the movie open to the public tomorrow!
SASKIA & ALAIA
Check out this beauty. SASKIA DE BRAUW & AZZEDINE ALAïA teamed up for a stunning editorial in Style.com’s debut magazine out this month. According to Style.com, this model is “leading the pack at an age, 30, when many models are hanging up their stilettos.” I absolutely love her look, both feminine and strong. This is a success story that’s just getting...
BLACK TIE AFFAIR
YVES SAINT LAURENT unveiled its ultra modern black-on-black french manicure set. It’s MATTE black and GLOSSY black together to create the extra dramatic, high nail art you’ve seen on magazines, runways, blogs, etc. $30 for the pair! This may be the perfect couple. via Nylon Mag
Here’s some more music love for you today.
Hey there ZARA, looking good there with all of your mix n match prints. I love both the floral and snake skin printed shirts. Those are some serious pants too.
LAST NIGHT I saw the FOO FIGHTERS kill it at Madison Square Garden. Dave Grohl, you’re a true rockstar. On another note, I got my hair cut at Pas de Deux salon in Tribeca on Saturday and it’s way too short. Remember my previous post about how I wanted my hair cut? Well, the problem with bringing in a photo, you never ever really achieve that look exactly. Turns out my hair now...
