black and white

(photo via the sartorialist)

i have always had an obsession with white hair. when its done well, it can look so chic. example: kate lanphear (pictured above), style director of US elle magazine. avant-garde, edgy and so cool.

floral flights

(photo: here)

jeremy scott for longchamp pilage bag. there is something so perfect about the roses and airplanes print...it possesses a certain je ne sais quoi? whatever it is, i want!! and i think i might get it in a few weeks on my trip to new york :) the soho store just received a shipment but has not yet priced the bags. it is also available at one of my all time favorite boutiques, colette.

green with envy



i am totally and completely envious of the lorraine schwartz emerald drop earrings and cocktail ring angelina jolie wore to the 2009 oscars. while many other attendees went overboard with statement making accessories, over-fabricated gowns and mermaid-esque pailletes for miles, angelina kept it clean and simple with a pop of color. her elie saab black strapless gown was the perfect match to the stunning accessories. kudos angie!

the beautiful emily of cupcakes and cashmere wearing the laura ring. i love that each person wears this ring differently, and it takes on a new identity each time.

fall 2009 trend: colored metallics

(photo: here)
how fantastically fierce and radically retro are these colored metallics that worked their way down the runway at new york fashion week? the rocker vibe would go quite well with the edginess of my laura ring. and the pink monochrome ensemble by preen is in dire need of some rose gold accessories.

wonder woman

(photos and quotes via town and country)
i absolutely ADORE diane von furstenberg. her philosophies about love, life and success run so parallel to my own beliefs that i feel mysteriously connected to her in some strange way. she is also very commited to helping women empower themselves -- a cause that resonates deep within me. when i saw her on the cover of this month's town and country mag, i could not wait to hear what she had to say this time:

~"i believe that a woman must have children because I think that's what we're made for -- we give life. but i do believe equally that a woman should have her own identity outside her family -- for her self-esteem, for her children, even for the respect of her husband. it's so important not to lose yourself. women must work..."

~"no man will solve your problems; no marriage or relationship will solve your problems. i've never looked for the 'right man' -- there's no such thing. the relationship that solves your problems is the relationship you have with yourself. your wholeness comes from you. your strength comes from you. once you have that, then you can have the rest, but the rest is a luxury."

~"i look at my wrinkles, and every wrinkle is a souvenir; it's a moment i have lived. i don't want to erase any of the moments i have lived."

~"every rejection is fuel for what you will be -- wanting to show you that you're better than that. you need to feel small in order to be big."

this final quote is my favorite.
