Saw this spread in the most recent Teen Vogue. First of all these two models are fantastically beautiful- their names are Elena and Manuela...you can't be uncool with names like those. Anyways..."14 Ways to Wear this Season's Must-Have Leggings."
The best part about this picture is the shoe choice, and the tubas.
This is my favorite...how FAB are the Rock & Republic leggings that say "LEGGINGS" down the side? Me likey.
Emilio de la Morena jackets...heeeeellllooooo.

Harem pants. I've had time to contemplate them, and I've decided that I like them. I don't know if I'll buy a pair right away, but here are some looks I like in the meantime:

Well, I know I'm months and months if not years late in boarding the Grey Gardens fan-train, but now is better than never, right? I saw the musical last night because my sister's friend is in a very small production of it in Boston at the Lyric Theater. The story, the costumes, the comedy and the characters were absolutely captivating. I had heard of the HBO movie that Drew Barrymore is in, but I didn't really know much about the story. It is absolutely fascinating and I really recommend it. After seeing the play I immediately watched the HBO version and fell in LOVE with it. I'm usually not a huge Drew Barrymore fan, but she nailed that part. She's absolutely beautiful throughout the whole thing.
Anyways...I did a little research on the Beales and came up with a few cool photos from when Little Edie was young and threw in some others from the movie and documentary too.
This one is the actual documentary from the 70s's:
This is my favorite picture (the next few are from the HBO movie when Little Edie is young...the clothes are to diiiieeee forrrr):
These are just some Grey Gardens-inspired photos:

"This is the best thing to wear for the day. You understand. Because I don't like women in skirts, and the best thing is to wear pantyhose or some pants under a short skirt, I think. Then youhave the pants under the skirt, and then you pull the stockings up over the pants underneath the skirt. Andyou can always take the skirt off and use it as a cape, so I think this is the best costume for the day. I have to think these things up,you know? Mother wanted me to come out in a kimono, so we had quite a fight."

The new Elizabeth and James pre-fall '09 line was released recently, and I've always loved their stuff, but these shoes in particular caught my attention. I already pre-ordered a pair of the calf hair moccasins. I love the laid-back style of all of their clothes.
These shorts and this shirt have been on my wishlist for far too long...it's a problem. I need them.

May Fashion Story: 90's Inspired
Sorry for the lack of posts...finals, garden parties and Celtics vs. Bulls have temporarily stolen my attention. This fashion story from WhoWhatWear just so perfectly mixed 90's grunge with the contemporary style of blazers, studs and high-waists. Too good.
These dresses are part of a vintage-inspired line on Topshop, and I want every single one. Prints, florals and colors all put together to create the perfect line of flirty and fun casual dresses that can be dressed up with a great necklace and the perfect shoes.

Dress : YOU
Dress: Strawberry Kat
Hat: Panama Jack
Boots: Forever 21
To continue my rant about spring...I went shopping this weekend. Harvard Square has so many stores to choose from, and most of them have some fantastic pieces hidden somewhere in them. Stores like Urban and LF are just so packed with things that you really have to search for the good items. But, I decided to dedicate my entire Friday afternoon to mindless sifting through junk, and found some cool stuff.
These aren't all the things I got, just some of my favs. The first two dresses are both from LF, and are super short, but I'm just going to embrace the shortness. What's a dress that doesn't show a little leg?? The first dress is my favorite, but both are really summery and comfortable- done and done.
My hat in the 3rd picture is literally a Panama Jack hat that I bought for $6 in a pharmacy in Palm Beach- who knew pharmacys sold hats at all? Palm Beach truly is it's own breed of city.
I was cleaning my closet today so it'd be easier to move out of my dorm on moving day, and I came across the skirt in the 4th picture- how cute? I literally forgot I had it, but I absolutely love it.
The boots are from Forever 21, which usually I don't depend on too much for shoes, but I love these with a flowy sundress or some cut-offs.
Anyways, another beautiful day in Boston and the sunglasses and flip-flops have been kicked into high gear. Loving life.
