What was the first thing I got in the mail at my new place??? A little fashion magazine from my best friend and roommate from college who lives out in Chicago (arieltrocino.com)!! That is love right there! She got it for free with her Chicago Magazine. I must admit this little magazine is really good for a magazine insert. There is great information and the editorals are surprisingly fantastic. These photos are from an editorial shoot called "A Brave New World." I really enjoy the styling that was done in this shoot and the photography. Everything that is fall is in this shoot. To bad you can't read the words on the pages, not only do they tell you who the designer is of the pieces but they also tell you where you can find the clothing in Chicago! How cool is that? Also I am REALLY loving the gray cape from RM by Roland Mouret (5th picture down).
Another editorial that is in the magazine is called "Arrivals and Departures" which was shot at one of the Chicago Airports. I'll have to do a post of that later.....

Free People Catalog August 2010
Free People free people...free people...you are just KILLING IT! I'm in love with their catalog from August 2010 (I'm a little late but whatever). The photography and styling is amazing. I love the desert seen and the models are way to beautiful. Free People has always been bohemian chic but they are taking it to another level this season. I love the hippy and earth mother goddess inspired clothing. I'm pratically drooling over everything. I'm so inspired to dress like a hippie, put some feather headbands on, find a patch of green grass and go dance on it.
Here is a set that I made of everything that I love from Free People:

Sunglasses: No Names
Sorry I'm obsessed with the exposed brick in my new apt (bedroom and living room)!
Anyway, HAPPY FRIDAY!!! So happy today is Friday and that it is the weekend! It feels like it has been the longest week ever! Between moving, unpacking, and work...I'm just exhausted! My boyfriends parents are coming up from PA this weekend and are staying with us. Good thing we got rid of A LOT of boxes!!! I can't wait to get internet and cable all hooked up tomorrow!!! This way I can stop stealing other peoples internet. I think I'm going to talk a small walk around my new neighborhood before the bf comes home. I saw a place that sells homemade ices and gelatos! YUM!
I hope everyone had a great week and has a great weekend!

HOORAY!!! Alexander Wang is set to open his first store in NYC in Yohji Yamamoto old space, 103 Grand Street, by the end of this year. Now only if I had the money to actually go shopping in there instead of dreaming of owning his pieces!

I love demin cut off shorts. They are the basic summer wear. Bilson takes this look to a whole other level by pairing her look up with the Rag & Bones platform sandals. She took her look from casual to casual chic, which is perfect for those summer days of shopping.
You can steal Bilson's look by pairing up your basic summer esstenials with strappy platform sandals.
Outfits from left to right: 1. Slub Knit Pocket Tank: $16 - canada.forever21.com; Demin Rip & Repair Demin Shorties: $40 - ae.com; Lipsy Ribbon Tie Heeled Sandals: $84 - asos.com; BLNQ Future Prophecies Sunglasses: $35 - urbanoutfitters.com; 2. James Perse Henley Cotton T-shirt: $75 - net-a-porter.com; Forever21 Shorts: $17 - forever21.com; Paris Hilton Jada: $95 - heels.com; Cheap Monday Round Glasses: $4.99 - urbanoutfitters.com; 3. J.Crew Ruffles Tank: $40 - jcrew.com; Breakwall Shorts: $40 - hollisterco.com; Carvela Anchor Platform Sandals: $105 - johnlewis.com; Matte Plastic Sunglasses: $6.99 - urbanoutfitters.com
Pair your cut off demin shorts with a basic tank top or cut off t-shirt. Throw on some blush strappy platform heels and ta-da you have a very chic and casual look.
For sunglasses that look like Ray-Bans but aren't and don't have the price tag of Ray-Bans check out Urban Outfitters collection of sunglasses. They have sunglasses that look similar to the traditional Ray-Bans but are much cheaper and come in all sorts of different colors.
I say wear shorts till the very end of summer! I know will try and wear my summer clothes until it gets way to cold out, even though today I already broke out a sweater that I bought from H&M (mid-summer for $10!).
What do you think of Rachel Bilson's look?

Clear Sweater Drawer $21.99
Thanks to my new apartment it has inspired me to put together a little collection of apartment decorations that I like:
My taste in design is definitely more modern and sleek but with a touch of traditional style. I like wooden pieces and pieces that are meant for one thing but can be used as something else. Like the children's stool- I would want to use that as end table in the bedroom since our bedroom is small and usually end tables are to wide which would be the case for this space. A children's stool is usual low in high and small in width since they are small in stature and have little butts. I am totally lucky that my boyfriend's sister's boyfriend has built us a storage units and a TV entrainment center. Nothing beats custom built furniture PLUS it even looks like it came from Ikea! How awesome is that?!?!
I can not wait to go home and start unpacking boxes and putting stuff in their place!!!

Alba is seen in a basic tank top, a knee length chambray skirt, and cage sandals. She also looks stellar in her car framed sunglasses.
Below are some ideas on how to steal Jessica Alba's look for less:
American Apparel has some great knee length skirts like the Gingham Stretch A-Line Skirt ($36). Try full circle knee length skirts. For something a little different try a demin full circle skirt like the Spoon Jean Chambray Skirt from Alloy.com ($9.99) and Dr. Demin Chambary Full Skirt from ASOS ($44). Pair your knee length skirt with a basic tank top, which many of us have in our draws already. Or try pairing it with a sheer tank top like the Unisex See Thru Tank from American Apparel ($24). Try a pump caged heel for a more sophisticated basic look. If high heels aren't your thing try flat caged sandals like the Snake Print Cage Sandal from gojane.com ($19) or the Forever21 caged sandal ($22). If you want a pop of color try pastel color caged sandals. I really love the ASOS Swirl Strappy Cage Shoe from ASOS ($37) for a pop of color. It's the perfect swirl of pastel and nude colors. And for the final touch: cat eye sunglasses. Urban Outfitters is the perfect place to pick up some cat eye shades . Their prices on sunglasses seem to range in the $16.
This look is the perfect day look. It's good for looking chic while meeting friends for lunch or doing your chores.
