Need, Want, Love: Yves Saint Laurent Y-Mail Clutch

Gorgeous no?
I've been wanting this clutch back since 2008. Here's a little story. Back in freshman year of high school after Pilati did that amazing YSL S/S 2008 collection, I had my eyes obsessing over this clutch. Like, crazy obsessing. I had finally saved up enough money from allowances and was THIS close to purchasing this clutch until I was a bit ambivalent whether I would get enough use out of it. It's till this day one of the biggest regrets I have. Anyways, I'm surprised YSL either still has the clutch for sale or they re-released it. Nonetheless, I'm like 2 paychecks away from purchasing this! lol.

Inspiration of the Day: Ruby Aldridge Looking Rad

For now on, I think I'm just gonna start posting like reaaaaally inspiring photos that just inspired me ala Tumblr. lol

Worst Dressed at the 65th Cannes International Film Festival: Kim Kardashian in Balmain Resort 2012

Who the fuck would allow Kim K to wear anything by the prestigious Balmain fashion house? Idk, do I sense someone at the label being fired? Hmm? R.I.P. Balmain.
Seen below on Kasia at the Resort 2012 presention:
Well, I'm pissed. Anyways, question of the day: Kasia or Kim in Balmain?
Actually, I should slap myself for that question. I mean, c'mon! Kasia, of course!

A Tribe Called Quest - Award Tour


Denim on Denim

What I wore yesterday (It's 12:07 am) while catching up with one of my high school friends.
(outfit: Denim jacket by Gap. Denim jeans by Forever 21. The wonderful thing about working at Gap is having the ability to purchase items for 50% off!)
Even though these aren't prescription glasses (shhhh! Don't tell anyone or I'll cut a bitch) I'm really loving them! Idk, glasses make me look....intellectual, no? lol. I actually do own a pair of actual prescription glasses by Miu Miu but they're some of the fugliest pair of glasses I own. I bought them back in 11th grade solely for the label. I mean, while majority of teemagers wear Chanel and Versace, do you ever see people having Miu Miu glasses? Yeah, I don't think so. lol
Anyways, I'm thinking of turning these into actual reading glasses. I'll see..

What Would I Wear Today: Just Cavalli Resort 2013

It's a tad bit Givenchy, but who fucking cares. It's quite chic.

Elle Brazil June 2012: Ana Beatriz Barros by Gui Paganini

WOW. I'm fucking speechless. Look what I just found on TFS.
From having the fierce Ana to wearing that stunning Versace S/S 2011 studded dresses to having a simple red background to the white text...it all just fucking words. Sublime, I tell yah! Idk how or where I'll find this here in Los Angeles, but I have to get my hands by this. Idk if it requires being a slut or doing something fucking gawky, I have to get this. Now, the editorials better not disappoint.

DKNY Resort 2013

Quite pleasing collection from DKNY. I've noticed recently for the past resort/pre-fell collections that the label always does a more "resort" collection when it comes to "pre-fall" and vice versa. Nonetheless, I appreciated the monochromatic color palette. I also enjoyed the more youthful/glamorous looks. I thought the use of sequins and feathers was fabulous.

I really love this look below. Idk, I feel like I'd wear it for one of those "lazy casual" days. Don't even get me started on how fantastic those silver heels are.

This is a bit unfair, but the all pink immediately made me reference Givenchy's almost all pastel pink Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Nonetheless, I'd wear this look in a heartbeat.
If you know me, you should know I love a good pair of leather shorts. The styling is fantastic here. Very urban, yet it's very professional, chic, and a bit edgy at the same time. Fabulous.
Not my favorite DKNY, but very satisfying.

Zara Double Zip Bowling Bag. Yay or Nay?

Isn't this bag from Zara absolutely gorgeous? I'm debating whether to actually get it or not. The pastel green color is just SO me.
After a couple of minutes, it immediately clicked in my head that it vaguely resembles the Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2008 BB bag. Amiright or amiright?

Unfortunately, it's not made from ostrich like the MJ bag is. Ugh, but the Zara bag is gorgeous and I'm in desperate need of a new bag.

What Would I Wear Today: Oscar de le Renta Resort 2013

I'm obsessing over this ODLR look on Britt Maren. Like, I wanna rip it off of her and wear it NOW. I'm a sucker for pink and I just love how it's paired with black skinny trousers and loafers. Also, I love the peplum detail on it. Plus, the styling is fucking spot on!

You know Britt Maren is a fantastic model when she makes the clothes look so desirable. It looks so good on her. Ugh, if only we all could have bodies like Britt, no?

Vogue Russia May 2012 Editorial: Britt Maren by Santiago & Mauricio Sierra

I'm head over heels for this sublime editorial featuring Britt Maren modeling some of the season's hottest items. I'm especially intrigued by the first image. I mean, Britt Maren in one of those fierce Versace studded pieces? Perfection.

Major kudos to Ekaterina Mukhina for a fabulous job at styling. The styling went competely well with the beach setting. I'm already a big fan respectively of Britt Maren and photo shoots shot on location at a beach, but combining the two makes this even more epic. I definitely have to get my hands on this issue! It's too rad.

Bottega Veneta Resort 2013

I'm a little quite disappointed Tomas' latest collection for Bottega. I know Tomas was thinking about the Bottega woman off on the weekend and wondering what she'd wear. Yes, what he offered below is gorgeous, but a tad bit too safe. We know the Bottega woman isn't that stale, no? Nonetheless, I really enjoyed these looks below:

Such a chic alternative to your average track suit, no? I'm also loving those gorgeous bow shoes. Understated chic.

Vogue Paris June/July 2012: Gisele Bundchen by Inez & Vinoodh

One word: EPIC.
Now, if only VP could do fierce covers like this one on a monthly basis. This is stellar. Who better to front the health initiative issue better than the stunning Gisele Bundchen. I can't wait to get my hands on this. You know I love a good ol' "posin' on the beach" photo.

Best Dressed at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards: Carrie Underwood in Oscar de La Renta Fall/Winter 2012

I mean, I love a good ol' editorial lookin' outfit, but this was very cute, chic, and opulent. Plus, I love me a good princess moment. 

Seen here on the runway on Arizona Muse:
That dress just screams "wear me on any red carpet". I mean, HELLO, I did do a previous post on it, no? That dress is just the hotness. The only flaw with Carrie's look is that fugly clutch. Since everyone is such a nice shade of gray, the juxtaposition of that dusty pink just doesn't sit right with me. I also would've done the hair just a standard straight style. Nonetheless, she looks flawless overall.

The Drums!

Last Tuesday had to have been one of the best nights of this year so far. My best friend Kelvin and I attended The Drums concert at the El Rey Theatre in Hollywood and had such a fabulous time.

Unfortunately, our asses were a bit ambivalent whether to bother people to get to the front of the line. Ehh, we're such sweet fucking people. Anyways, we had like a small drink prior to entering the venue, so our buzz immediately started fading once the main performance started. Anyways, we had such a fantastic time. The Drums have to be one of my top favorite bands! Seriously, they're in my top 10 favorite bands list. They did not disappoint at all. I did end up buying one of their shirts from the tour. It's so simple, comfy, and chic. Can't wait to pear it with jeans for a very casual, chic, effortless look. Ahhh, such a great way to pretty much start summer off.

Met's Costume Institute Gala 2012: Carolien Sieber in Christopher Kane

This woman is one of my fashion inspirations. She always pairs some of the coolest runway pieces so effortlessly with her outfits. Anyways, I adored her in this Christopher Kane dress.

Not one of my top best dressed nominess, but a definite standout. And how fabulous is that Chanel pearl clutch. Too fierce.

Tim Tebow, Fuck Me

Ooooooooooh lordy. Mighty fine at the Costume Institute Gala.
Gimme a minute, y'all.....
GAWD, this man is hoot. I've read he does errands around Weho a lot? Idk. I hope so ;)

Met's Costume Institute Gala 2012: Jessica Alba in Michael Kors

Flawless. I LOVE that bronze lame fabric!
Movie star realness. A definite honorable mention regarding the looks at the Gala.

Battle of Yellow at the Costume Institute Gala: January Jones vs. Emma Roberts vs. Solange Knowles

The peplum silhouette was the hotness at Monday's Costume Institute Gala at the Met. Now, being the fashion obsessed whore that I am, I noticed that there was a bit of a similarity between three dresses:

So, who fucking it wore it best? Do I even have to answer that?
Of course it's January Jones! HELLO, it's Versace Atelier! Plus, I love the metal inserts throughout the bustier part of the dress. Emma, unfortunately, is wearing Escada. Homegurl could've done so much better! I fucking love Emma, so I'm so sad she had to end up wearing some B-rate dress. Solange is wearing Rachey Roy. Solange is well Solange so of course she's going with a Rachel Roy dress. Solange's dress is like the cheap Macy's version of the Versace gown whereas Emma's looks like it was just simply inspired. The only thing I'm disliking about the overall look on January is that necklace she juxtaposed the dress with. Turquoise and that sunny yellow is a no-no for moi.

WERQ That Metronomy T-Shirt!

From my last post, it's evident I attended Metronomy's recent concert in Hollywood. Well, my fabulous ass couldn't leave the concert without a t-shirt! Duhhhhh.
(Outfit: Metronomy band t-shirt. H&M leather jacket. Forever 21 dark washed jeans. TOMS slip ons. Gap pink oversized sunglasses.)
Ugh, gotta love a band t-shirt, no?
Anyways, here's my blonde hair I'm SO loving right now!

Ugh, if I could've been born a blonde, I'd be the happiest bitch ever. I just love it. There's something mesmerizing and cool about blondes. Hello, Snejana Onopka, anyone? Enough said.

Metronomy Concert!

I haven't updated in a while! Anyways, last Thursday was such a fabulous day! My homegurl Katie and I attended Metronomy's concert in Hollywood. Such a fabulous night!
(Outfit: H&M mens gray cardigan. The Rolling Stones t-shirt. Michael Kors rose gold watch. Gap neon green and pink bracelet)
I have this aversion of attending concerts not drunk, but whatever. I had to be sober since I as the designated driver. UGHHHHH FML. I did enjoy myself though. My gurl got lucky 'cause some British guy danced with her. My ass was alone. EEEEEK. I need a man soon. LOL.
Anyways, I lost it when they played this:
After the concert, my fatass immediately went to McDonalds for a quick bite. It was the fatty patty in me coming out. Anyways, I can't wait for next week! I'm seeing The Drums live!
Jonathan Pierce is hotness.

Raf Simons for Fred Perry Spring/Summer 2013

I know Raf has worked with Fred Perry to design a couple of items, but I'm finally tempted to actually purchase something. Especially this top from the next S/S season.
Gorgeous, no?
