My Golden Half

When I went to New York this past March I went to the International Center of Photography... when I was there I visited their gift shop and bought this little toy camera called "The Golden Half"  it doesn't require any batteries... just a roll of film... What's special about this little camera is that it puts two separate pictures on one picture... which gives you the opporunity to take double the pictures... so for 1 roll of 24 you can take 48 pictures... i know this sounds a little confusing but check out some pictures I took... :))

Btw... I had a mini photo shoot the other day with my sister and I just realized that I styled her similar to Emma...  I did a puff sleeve combined with a voluminous skirt to balance the proportions...  and added a head band and a yellow ball necklace to bring your eyes up...  If your trying to pull this look... always think about your waist... if your waist gets lost you will look like a big balloon... Don't these outfits inspire you to always look your best? Why waste a day rockin' flip slops with jean shorts, when you can play dress up and take your wardrobe to a whole new level...

Jimmy Choo for H&M

Another season, another designer... I def think H&M has discovered their very unique niche that will keep their customers coming back for more every season. Jimmy Choo is the latest designer to pair up with H&M and not only will this collection include shoes and handbags but clothing as well.

 "We are privileged to be among the fashion greats who have been affiliated with H&M so far, and to be designing a collection appealing to fashion savvy, street smart women, and to be including some great pieces for men, too,” founder and president of Jimmy Choo, Tamara Mellon said today. “Jimmy Choo will bring to H&M a sophisticated, fashion forward, accessible and glamorous collection – the perfect party pieces to buy now and then wear out that night!”

UGH! The collection will debut November 14!!! Another reason to go to NY in the Fall! I cant wait to see what they have in store!

WHOLE LOTA HAIR!

I'm the kind of girl who loves changing hair styles ever 2 months and isn't scared of a little snip snip. So every time I go to the salon I try to change it up and my hair dresser Amy def hooks me up! I met her 3 years ago at Aqua Salon in Ft. Lauderdale, when a friend recommended me and I've been going to her ever since... and because I'm not scared to shave the side of my head and take off 2-3 inches every time I go... it's been a little difficult to grow out my locks. I've been trying to grow it out for a couple months now and even debated getting extensions because I'm so impatient... with that being said... 
Today I went to Sawgrass Mall with my good friend Sandra and had lunch at P.F Changs... we were soo full that we decided to walk it off in the mall... we walked around.. went in some stores.. walked some more.. (bc Sawgrass is seriously a mile long) and stopped at a  kiosk that sells hair extensions... Sandra recognized the girl who worked there and chatted with her, while I was checking out the extensions ... BTW I never stop to ask any questions to ANY kiosk workers because these people will give up their arm for you to buy their shit... But today I was a little open minded and decided to sit down and have her play with my hair... She was new so this other chick helped me out... She took out these LONG ASS extensions and placed them on my head and then started ironing it... The hair color matched my hair exactly and couldn't wait to see my self with long hair finally!
She gives me the mirror and turns me around to see the back... OMG it looks so really... Really pretty! and then turns me around to the front... WTF! I look like Hanna Montana/ Paris Hilton! Def not a good look! LMAO I seriously got freaked out! The sales lady was giving me a very good price...$300 going down to $150... When there a sale like that I cant resist but on top of not having $150 I didn't want to look like a wanna be pop star... I lied and said I would be back later on... Oh man I'm so traumatized that I'm going to call my hair dresser tomorrow for an appointment... CUT OFF 3 INCHES PLEASE!

Dolce & Gabbana inspiration??

Beetle Juice was on television the other day... :) Oh how I love that movie! Tim Burton is just a genius... I adore all of his films especially Batman Returns!!! RAWRR :) LOL Okay anywayzzzz... I noticed something very interesting...  It was the scene where cooky Delia Deetz played by Catherine O'Hara is talking to Charles and Lydia at the dinner table and she's wearing a pair of leather gloves tied on her head... Well does that look familiar to you??? Yup it sure does... from Dolce & Gabbana's Fall 09 collection... Even though their main inspiration was  Elsa Schiaparelli "The Queen of Surrealism" Delia Deetz was very much into that as well... hmmm I wonder if they popped in Beetle Juice for inspiration... :)

Kate Moss Summer Collection

Okay seriously... Kate Moss can have a bag over her head and still look stunning. Her latest collection for Topshop was inspired by her own wardrobe and pieces that she can wear to festivals and on holiday. I also think their inspiration came from the jungles of Central and South America. The jewelry is very bold and the colors are striking. Kate Moss is an Amazon Princess. The collection is available at Topshop store and Online tomorrow. By the way I loooove the make-up! I was actually wearing the same thing today :*

Zooey Deschanel Cotton Commercial

Tweaking my style...

Right now my personal style is at a stand still, and what I mean by that is... I don't have any inspiration and I feel like my style is all of the place. So what I decided to do is pick 2 inspirations and they are Penelope Cruz and Zooey Deschanel :) These two beautiful women have an incredible sense of style and are very elegant. They are not about wearing the shortest skirt in the closet or have their tits sticking out their tops. 
I've always been in love with Penelope Cruz but what made me really love her was her role in Vicky Christina Barcelona :) She played a wild woman!! lol She was passionate, sexy, and a GENIUS! lol In the film she wore a lot of linen tops and dresses... very simple and clean... As for Zooey Deschanel she has more of an fun/quirky personality... She is always wearing black tights and adorable baby doll dresses... I recently saw her in the Cotton commercial and wanted to be just like her. lmao So now when I go shopping these two women are going to be in head and it will help me focus on what I really need to look for.
I suggest if your having a style melt down... stop and pick 2-3 inspirations... it can be anything from an editorial spread in a fashion magazine or a character in your favorite movie... You don't have to copy the style exactly but pick and choose little details and make it your own. Its really just a stepping stone to figuring out your personal style and how you want the world to see you... :) HAVE FUN!!

This hair and make up was inspired after watching Vicky Christina Barcelona :)
