Stripe Pants at Art Gallery Opening

It's tough to pull off stripe pants. This is probably a failed attempt. What is your vote?

Who Do You Want to be Today?

I love this book. Mostly because it inspires me but also because this was me in High School. I changed my look everyday from hippy one day to goth the next.Trinny and Susannah of the British What Not To Wear, I'm convienced wrote this book for me. It has 12 different looks like Rock Chic and Androgyny done with real girls aged 18 to 65, sizes 8 to 16.
The layout is like a picture filled scrapbook that I go to it all the time for ideas, especially when I go vintage shopping.I wish they would do a second book with even more looks. Come on ladies!!

Copy This Look: On the Cover of Vogue

Love love love white lace tops and dresses in the summer! For me they never get old and never go out of style. Innocent and sexy all at the same time.

Vintage Fashion Show Tuesday

3 things:
1.I love that they call YSL a "controversial" new designer
2. I love that this video is narrated by a man who like to make jokes
3. Those waists are too small...really even the narrator says waspy

Avoid Impulsive Buying

Today I finally had the chance to get to the yearly summer sale at H&M! I scored this sweet romper that I had tried on before but had to take it home with me today. So glad I waited because it was only 15 euros. (don't mind the socks please).
So, one thing I like to do when shopping is, if I'm not 100% sure about the purchase on any items, I take a little picture of the item, sometimes on me in the dressing room and sometimes just on the rack. I leave and go home. When I look back at the picture of the item and I still really want it, I know that I will wear it. If I get over it and delete the picture, I know that I didn't need it and an glad I didn't waist the money. This technique works great for me when making a good and not too impulsive decision. Give it a try.

Here is the pic I took of this romper when I first saw it (and it was 40 euros). I kept the picture so I knew I really wanted it. Now I just need that hat...
