chanel spring '10 RTW














(photos from style.com)

my favorites from the spring show. lagerfeld's genius never disappoints. i don't think i could pick just one if someone tried to force me to...maybe the drop waist lace dress (6th photo from the top) or the lace trim with black tulle bottom dress (7th from the top) or the ecru apron style cocktail dress (bottom photo)...i love them all. also loving the clogs and the chain look around the thighs. i cannot identify whether this is henna or hose. anyone?

investment piece

gwyneth paltrow at the Stella McCartney spring '10 show at Paris Fashion Week in a Stella blazer. to me, a well constructed blazer is the perfect investment piece. love the simplicity if this outfit.

follow me on twitter. do you really care what i'm doing? probably not. but i will attempt to provide you with some interesting info as i tweet.

K O R A


hello. i am sorry for my absence in posting lately...but, i am back with big news...

ok everyone. listen up. become a follower of KORA..like...now. not only because this blog is cleverly written and full of interesting content, but because these girls are introducing you to a sustainable brand of badass ankole cow horn jewelry (i have seen their first round of product in person, and let me tell you, i flipped over these pieces) crafted to build a rwandan manufacturing business (see their bucket theory). the idea is genius, the pieces are unique and beautiful, and the project is humanitarian in nature. follow them on their journey to build their brand, and be on the lookout for a korcula/kora design fusion in the future. i am truly honored to work with these girls.

allie in lucky

check out my allie alligator sandals in the august issue of lucky magazine! the sandals are shown in turquoise glaze alligator and are sold here by special order only. email me to place an order.

orangepoppy


loving these adorable necklaces by orangepoppy created for the rockstar diaries giveaway this week. i want the striped one to layer with my korcula mary necklace, because in my opinion, nautical stripes and yacht wheels compliment eachother so well :) it also reminds me of a black and white striped top i made back in high school that i have always wanted to recreate. leave a comment here for a chance to win.

fiery red



here's the only shot i have of myself with the fiery red locks. it has now faded to a dull red, which i am still digging. i haven't quite decided what i am going to do with my hair once the dye is completely washed out...thoughts? suggestions? images?

redhead

after months and months of monotonous blond highlighting i finally got fed up enough to bite the bullet and do something drastic. sooooo...i went red. and i love it. it's much more fiery than this picture (taken by my phone) reveals, so i will work on getting a better image this weekend. and a few more of oscie - per your requests. i used clairol natural instincts semi-permanent dye in cinaberry, but i'm thinking of making it permanent for a while. tell me, what do you think?

simple sultry


i'm back after a jaunt to aspen and feeling inspired by this gorgeous italiana, shot by the sartorialist. loving the chic, classic and simple qualities of her LBD, mixed with the edginess of her gladiators and sexiness of the hemline.

meet oscar

taking a brief moment away from fashion to introduce you to my dog, oscar, a.k.a "oscie" (the little guy on the right with the beard). he frequently lays at my feet while i am working and blogging, snorting heavily and snuggling fondly. he brings me joy and companionship and deserves a debut on korculastyle.


a view from the rear...i couldn't let you miss out on the adorable french bulldog, toulouse.



**photos taken on the john boat memorial day weekend at my good friend's lake house on lake forest falls. the dogs almost outnumbered the humans and quite possibly had even more fun than we did.

feeling uggish?



sarah from whooga ugg boots has generously offered all of my readers $30 off a pair of boots by entering KORCULASTY at checkout. whooga boots look just like the popular brand UGG AUSTRAILIA but happen to be a little less heafty on the pocket book, and according to the rave reviews they are just a comfy. i am loving the metallic ones, and at $100 a pop (with the discount), it's hard to say no - even if it is pushing 100 degrees here in houston.

the looks of leighton


is it just me or did anyone else swoon over leighton meester in louis vuitton at the MET costume institute gala? that plunging neckline, the poofy sleeves, sequin/spandex leggings and velvet platforms with ballerina-esque bows and pearl embellishments?! i was floored by this look.

also completely captivated by this bow back YSL number with the classic cage heel:


and possibly my favorite look, in emilio de la morena at the MTV movie awards:

i personally prefer this edgy chic to the headband clad blair waldorf, but that's just me.

influenced





one of my favorites:

i could not be more in love with the marc jacobs resort 2010 collection. i believe that exposure breeds creativity, and the multitude of influences in this collection make for one of my favorite by MJ so far. parisian striped boatneck blouses, asian influened silk lame pants, old hollywood glamour and embellished tweed jackets - why do you tempt me so?

obsession

my main obsession, actually, my only obsession, from kate moss' most recent collection for topshop was this unbelievable moroccan inspired blouse. naturally, it sold out in about five minutes. the collection was inspired by moss' worldly travels and her favorite pieces from her own personal closet. i actually think she might be wearing the original in this photo, as the beadwork looks slightly different in the images on topshop's website. if i could just have the blouse in this photo...i would cherish it forever.

wildfox couture




i have had an obsession with wildfox couture t-shirts and tanks for some time now. naturally, seeing allessandra ambrosio rock these bad boys only makes me covet them even more. the line is inspired by native american artwork and vintage rock & roll t-shirts, and now apparently consists of killer plaid leggings as well. i'll take one of everything please.

headgear





my day would be complete if i could just have at least one of these pieces from jennifer behr. i'd prefer the encrusted crystals on silk chiffon and i'd channel richie's ethereal look with winged eyeliner and soft waves. of course, i'd happily settle for a patent leather neon orchid or an overlapping crystal twist.
thanks courtney.

take me away...






today all i can seem to think about is taking a vacation. while i am yearning for white sandy beaches, i am still amped up for a trip to san miguel next month. one of my best friend's is tying the knot and my family and closest friends are all headed out for the festivities. my parents rented out the lavish casa cece and i literally can hardly wait to get there. word has it we will be greeted promptly with margaritas and a homemade mexican meal prepared by the in-house chef. i'll take it!
p.s.-check out the site of the wedding here.
