These are like the classier version of both of those. Unfortunately class costs $2,200.

Earlier this year I saw a girl with super-cute boots and complimented her on them, asking where she got them. When she asked me if I'd heard of Frye boots before and I said no, she looked at me like I was totally out of it. Now I know why...Frye boots rock- the styling is basic but trendy and the leather is gorgeous. The Owen Lace-Ups above are amazing- they fit with my tough feminine look. Unfortunately they are $298 and I doubt there's a replica this sexy. I did just shell out some big bucks on my first Nikon though, and I'm so excited!! Once in comes in the mail I'll be the biggest shutterbug ever- I'm dying to create an amazing Flickr account. But I digress.

I’m a bit ashamed of it, but I’m really getting into the 11th season of America’s Next Top Model. Right now I’m absolutely in love with Marjorie and her look. She’s such a sweetheart- like a blonde version of Audrey Tautou. (I did try to find a better picture of her than the one above...I'm not crazy about the high waisted overalls and spikier hair.)
Although I should probably be coming on fashion rather than personality, Clark and Hannah drive me insane. Clark seems very bland and ditzy, while Hannah needs to be more open-minded and get over herself.
And while I like Sheena, I’m glad they pointed out her fake breasts…but it makes me wonder how many of the other contestants have had plastic surgery. I feel like there are a lot more unique, unusual faces in the competition, instead of just pretty ones.

I'm also currently OBSESSED with these sugar-free, vegan chocolate chip cookies from Whole Foods (aka Whole Paycheck). The words sugar-free & vegan might not sound promising to all of you (as well as the fact that they contain tofu), but I they taste just as good, if not better, than "normal" cookies. I hope they sell them at your local Whole Foods too, because they are phenomenal.
This isn't meant as a big advertisement or anything. (Although I would appreciate it if someone from Luna read this & sent me a free liftetime supply. Hehe. How 'bout it?) Just like I don't want you to miss out on great fashion, I don't want you to miss out on great food!
I've been reading "Skinny Bitch" lately & they have great suggestions for other snacks. I'm considering the vegan lifestyle, even though I don't think I could give up tilapia & salmon. It'd be a good time in my life to try it though, as my college's food is pretty vegan-friendly.

Zzzzzz. I love the Brits & I love cheap, cool clothes. But TopShop has always bored me. It's the same stuff you find at the Gap. Yeah, the Kate Moss stuff is cool, but for those prices you could get way better pieces. Does Kate Moss really have a say in that stuff?
TopShop is like that guy you've dated. Everyone raves about him and he seems really interesting and hard-to-get. But then you end up with him and are bored.
Check it here. I love it. Time for her to mix things up...my 49-year-old mom's best friend just tried to get the same haircut as Victoria Beckham. When something becomes that popular, ditch it.
I've tried to pull this short of a look off, but it didn't work. I love that girl Marjorie on "America's Next Top Model". Love her, love her. She's like a sweet, French version of Agyness Deyn.
If you can't go to fashion week either, check out this link: NY Times Fashion Week. As usual, the New York Times does it best. And as usual, autumn is the best season, for clothes and everything else. Maybe I've been in school too long, but for me it always seems like the real start of a new year.

Yeah, I know you're still hungover from Sig Ep's party on Friday. But that doesn't mean you should walk into French IV twenty minutes late in your sloppy jeans and dirty Uggs with no makeup on. Remember all of those boys that asked for your number Friday night? Well, you could snag a few more today if you play your fashion cards right...& these might actually be worthwhile- sober men who show up to class.
I'm not saying you have to wear a D&G skirt or anything...but what about some nice colored denim just to keep things interesting? The lovely pair pictured is only $32.50 at Alloy. Throw them on with some non-Ugg boots, a well-fitted tee & a bit of lipstick. I'll be as happy as I was when I got that unexpected A in Russian Film.
