style spotting: vanessa jackman

source: vanessa jackman

If you've never been to her site before, click click click! Here are just a few of the many looks that I am loving for inspiration. In the first, really into the chambray blouse under the leather jacket. The sheer and opaque alternating black tights are increds in the second photo. Sama and Haya always look put together...and that hair! In the last, the dotted tights under leather shorts with the khaki blazer is absolute perfection. Okay, okay, and that bag is pure eye candy.

This pyramid studded double-ring in gunmetal is to die for. If only my fingers weren't child-sized! Check out more incredible punk loot from the Alex and Chloé Trinity Collection here.

chanel tattoos in all their glory

So here they are, my beloved Chanel tattoos. I've had these on for over a week and they are just starting to fade now. Don't you worry, I showered every day. They are persistent - A++ for quality! I wanted to do the post after wearing them for a while to gauge both mine and others' reactions. Almost everyone thinks they are real at first (score!). I've found that I've been wearing much less jewelry (think bracelets and rings) and instead have been donning my Chanel necklace to match. This is three tattoos in one - two chain bracelets and one charm. Thanks to my awesome roommate for her skills from babysitting years in helping get these on, though we ruined a few others in the process (booo). I'm excited to try the others now! I'm thinking feet for the flower ones once it gets nice enough for sandals. Thoughts? Hate it, love it?

EDIT: I bought the tattoos from the Chanel website!

cape perfection

source: stockholm street style

If I looked that good in a cape I don't think I'd ever wear a jacket again! Also really love the glasses -- that style is super cute in clear frames too. Would you wear glasses that weren't prescription solely for fashion? I think I would, they're such a great accessory!

strike a pose, there's nothing to it

Frida Gustavsson. Ginta Lapina. Abbey Lee. Respectively.

style spotting: sara battaglia

source: the sartorialist

I'd love to lie and say it's good to be back, but Vegas was so much fun and Miami was beeaauutiful weather! I even managed a bit of a tan. Philly is seemingly forever rainy and overcast though it's supposed to heat up towards the end of the week -- score! This is Giovanna Battaglia's little sister, Sara (anyone else think they look really really similar??). Like Giovanna, she has an incredible sense of style. The combination of all these different pieces simply works. Yet another win for The Sartorialist.

that one song getting you through finals

source: google images

This is a cover of the original by The Knife (which is also an incredible song that channels pure funk). The photo is from the Sony Bravia commercial with all the bouncy balls covering the streets of San Francisco. I think it was one of the most well-done and memorable commercials that I've ever seen.

natalia in wonderland

source: unknown

Amazing Vogue editorial. Loved all the pics but these were the most visually striking for me. Natalia Vodianova makes a pretty sweet Alice, don't you think? Two more days until Alice in Wonderland opens! I feel like it's going to be ridiculously frightening in 3-D, but I'm also realllyyyy excited...
