All Grown Up

This image of Emma Watson really caught my attention. I've been a fan of the Harry Potter series since I was in middle school, so I've really noticed how the current face of Burberry has evolved from this

Now, the 19-year-old dresses in Christopher Kane and vintage.

About a boy

No I'm not back! Currently I'm in sunny Las Vegas. Well, at the time of writing this I'm not, but I'm assuming that by the time this post goes up I will be.

I'm not crazy about men's clothing. Usually I don't find it very interesting, so when I do find a guy who knows how to dress something in me gets all giddy. Like this lovely gentleman above from The Sartorialist. I feel like he should be in a Wong Kar Wai film. And if you don't know who that is then I highly recommend watching In the Mood for Love or Chungking Express.

But back on topic, here are some other guys I thought have wonderful style.

All pics are from Lookbook, which I desperately wish I was a member of. The people on it are so wonderfully fashionable and I love scrolling through.

What I Crave

So it's official. The thing I love right now are cool bib necklaces. I've already got two , but I keep seeing ones I want to buy!

Urban Outfitters

Normally I'm not a jewelry person, so I'm sure in a few weeks I'll be in love with something else.

In the meantime, I won't be around for a few days because I'm going to Las Vegas! It's not as glamorous as you all think because it's a vacation/family visit. So I won't be waking up the next morning with a tiger in my hotel bathroom.

Something We Can Appreciate

I've been diving into the wedding thing this summer, even though we aren't scheduling the date until 2011, but I want to make sure I'm not running around during the last three months. Since I have so much time I've been looking into things that I won't actually get.

For instance, all of the reception halls have a free wedding cake. Yet, I found myself clicking through pages of pictures of cakes online, and I thought you would all enjoy this one:

Ron Ben-Israel

This is quite possibly the cutest cake I've ever seen and the fiancee agreed that it would be great for me. It's not something I would ever choose for a wedding cake, but I still love it!

Buona Sera Senorita, Buona Sera

I never know what to wear when I go to reception halls. I don't want to just go in jeans, because they're all nice places and I'm hoping to get married there. I want to make a good impression, so I've been staying away from short skirts. But, I don't want to look like I'm trying to impress them, so I've been staying away from long skirts and dresses.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Top - Karen Millen, Pants - Zara, Suspenders - Hot Topic, Necklace - Urban Outfitters, Flower clip - Anthropologie, Shoes - Aldo

Glitter on the wet streets

Sweater - Nordstrom, Top - Anthropologie, Shoes - Simply Vera for Kohls

Not that any of you keep up with the weather in New Jersey, but it's been pretty crummy here. We've had rain 17 this month so far. So that is why I'm still wearing a sweater when most other bloggers I follow are dressed like this because they live in California or somewhere that hasn't been imitating April.

And my face is blocked out because I had crazy eyes. Seriously.

So! To shake off the wet weather I went to the mall!

One of the many by me opened a Urban Outfitters just last week, so it's super new and nice. I bought the following necklace, which is black leather interlacing the metal, and top, which I'm picturing at the beach, and another top, which photographed horribly with my camera (I dropped it, so it gives things weird colors sometimes, like the neon purple infiltrating the second picture). The last top was a loose black crop top, it's not too short, but enough that it's noticeable.

This lovely dress is by Mink Pink. It's very fitted and I almost didn't get it. I know, it's super floral, but it helps counterbalance how fitted and short it is.

As you can see, all the things I bought were black(ish)! I actually went to the mall hoping to buy some brighter colors for summer. I even tried on light pinks and greens but none of it was stuff I wanted. I went into H&M really hoping to buy something colorful, but alas, I found nothing (which usually happens when I go there). The only thing at H&M I really liked, but pulled myself away from was a short leather vest ... which was also black.

The shoes that rock

Thanks to everyone who gave love to my Zara shoes!

Fun fact: the lead singer of The Sounds, Maja Ivarsson, was wearing the same shoes at the No Doubt concert on Sunday! Even though we missed The Sounds opening for No Doubt, the band came back out for one of the last songs of the night and my sister noticed the shoes almost immediately.

We failed to remember the camera when we left for the concert. It's unfortunate because Gwen Stefani had three different outfits during the concert.

This was the first outfit of the night and I think the thing I love about it most is the belly-baring crop top. The outfit was a wonderful mix of '90s grunge-style Gwen and today's fashion designer Gwen.

This was the last outfit of the night and the shirt was way more sparkly in person.


And because the other frontwomen got some spotlight, I thought I'd show Hayley Williams, the lead singer of Paramore. She was kind of amazing live. She's incredibly energetic.
