Style Inspiration: Alice Dellal


Who knew that us 5'5" girls could be models too?

For that reason alone, I feel kinship with Alice Dellal. OK, so I know she's totally 2008 and I'm not always crazy about her messy grunge outfits. But I adore her use of a leather jacket. And that hair!


Plus, unlike some models, we get smiles! It's nice to see you too, Alice.

Piercing Post #2

One of my more popular posts outlined my inter-debate over getting a septum piercing. That idea is still on hold, but in the meantime I've come up with a few other options to get my body mod fix. Currently I'm considering either the industrial or tragus ear piercings...
In case your not familiar, the tragus is that little nub of cartilage partly covering your ear canal. My only concern is that my tragus is pretty small, so it might just look like I have a painful piercing coming out of the side of my face! I'd love to put a little ring in it though, instead of a stud like Rihanna's. One concern I have is that the pierced tragus is getting pretty ubiquitous on my college campus. It's like the new upper cartilage piercing or nose ring.

The industrial is a little less "pretty", but that could be what I need since my overall look is fairly conservative Midwest right now. I've heard this one hurts like heck, which doesn't bother me, except it means I should probably hold off until after head is already throbbing!

Prom Dress of the Day #1

Hey y'all. Sorry for the long hiatus. I've been working on forming a music hasn't been intriguing me as much. (Partly because I feel like I have less money to spend these days.)

Anyway, I know a lot of high schoolers have prom coming up. When I was a senior, the dress options in the mall just didn't cut it -- tacky, poofy things just weren't my style. So these next few days, I'm going to give you a few classier, more unique options. If your past your teenage days, perhaps these would make good bridesmaid dresses?

Happy New Year! by brainyblondie

2008 has probably been the most eventful year ever for me. As a college sophomore, I've had a lot of new experiences...exploring the city, internship hunting...

But 2009 is almost upon on. While a lot of people deride resolutions, I like them and am actually pretty dang good at keeping them. So far, I've decided I need to cut down on the coffee, keep my boudoir cleaner and drink more water!

I have some great cocktail recipes I'll try to put up here soon.

What are your resolutions? Any fabulous parties to attend?

An ode to Wes Anderson

Oh, Wes Anderson. At times you try a bit too hard to be quirky, but that's OK. I still love you. Or at least your movies. These grey, chilly mid-November days remind me of the gloomy but warm scenery in "The Royal Tenenbaums" and "Rushmore."
