Funny Bun

Ahh the casualties of hair...

I appreciate hair the most when it's effortless. I took this pic of my friend Janelle's lazy bun because I loved it.

Beau Tie

So now, not only will you be able to wear your man's v necks, button ups but ALSO his bow ties! We've seen this trending a bit and I find it pretty adorable...although your guy may not think the same.

About Sunsets...

When esteemed photographer, Cristina Navarro asked if she could take some photos of me (just for fun), I was surprised and felt extremely honored. I am not a model, I don't have the perfect face or the perfect body, and although a bit nervous about being in front of the camera, I am beyond excited about her finished product. I've always been a big fan of hers and will always remember this fun shoot! To visit her blog, click here.

Rachel Rachel Roy

I want my friend Jenny A. to know that I love her for this bit of information: Rachel Roy makes amazing clothes...OK that's not new information. But did you know she has an affordable line called Rachel Rachel Roy? Oh yes ma'am.

Here is a preview of her delicious shoe line...

New Trend: Flatforms

The latest trend for spring shoes...the FLATFORM! Thoughts? I don't love them, even though I don't HATE the Derek Lam (pictured below), espadrille-like flatforms...I think I'll live without them until they grow on me (I barely started warming up to military boots). eek!

Hot & Sultry Makeup

So...I'm obsessed with StyleCaster's beauty section and today I found this makeup look. Next time I hit the town (whenever that happens) I'm gonna give this a try!

Steel Pipe Peek-A-Boo

I'm a little bit obsessed with these Shanne earrings by Brad Walsh...

and more vintage...

The first thing my eyes came across this morning was this marvelous little site called Merchant Archive. The London-based shop has a pretty fantastic selection of vintage. I found an AMAZING pair of black & gold YSL shoes (two sizes too small, ugh). These are some of my favorite picks!

Less is BiltMORE

Got around to Asheville, NC while touring the south last week. Nirva and I stopped by the Biltmore Estate (largest home in US where Vanderbilts once lived), we also stopped by the neighboring winery at Antler Hill (which I highly recommend). If you're ever visiting the south, I suggest you visit!!

My weakness: A little bit of Indian

Ever since I met one of my closest friends, Nirva, in Massachusetts a few years ago, I've had an extreme weakness for all things Indian. I love the food, the colors, the jewelry and the customs.

I visited Nirva over NYE and our friend, Avni cooked us a delicious Indian feast!
