Spring 2010? Are we there yet?

In the words of my friend and fellow Kent Stater, "Spring semester?! That's a lie!"

I hate winter. Actually, that is a bit of an understatement. Winter makes me physically ill. But, thanks to email subscriptions to various retailers and Notcouture, I can look forward to warmer months in the warmth and comfort of my own apartment.

Spring 2010

Clockwise from top left:
1. Digby & Iona Stump ring; $210.00- I recently showed this to my boyfriend and he actually liked it. You can even get initials "carved" into it. Now to just drop enough hints before Valentine's Day...

2. Balmain Cotton-canvas studded military blazer; $6,225.00- Words cannot even begin to describe my love for this jacket. It has everything going for it- studs, patches, and I love the dark hunter green, such a great alternative to black.

3. AE cross-strap sandals; $29.50- I love these sandals because they are casual, but more sophisticated and easier to dress-up than flip-flops. They also come in a lovely pale aqua color, but I think I'll go for basic brown.

4. Sephora Brand "I Love Sephora" brush set; $29.00- I am in dire need of new makeup brushes, so I think the email sent to me by Sephora today was a sign. Plus I love the pink color, perfect for Spring! The best part? This is a $120.00 value!!

5. Cooperative Neon poplin frock; $58.00- As soon as the weather starts remotely warming up, I'm drawn to dresses. I love the cute floral print on this dress, and it would look great with the AE sandals =)

6. Deux Lux basketweave satchel; $58.00- I promised myself at the end of last year that this spring/summer I was GOING to buy a green tea hued handbag!

The magic position, darling

The latest editorial offerings from Burberry reminded me of 2007's- the ones with Patrick Wolf. Which reminded me that I still had not downloaded The Bachelor. I'm not sure what my affinity to British, bisexual musicians is about, but he is slowly creeping up to the top of my favorites list.

Nahh, Brian Molko still has that spot. Or Bowie. But regardless, Patrick Wolf is a lovely creature and makes amazing music. And he's not a bad model either!

Happy Birthday David Bowie

Happy birthday
David Bowie!

I just had to post a birthday shout-out to the namesake of this blog, David Bowie- who has been as influential in fashion as he has been in music. We heart you!

Absolute Perfection

Image Hosted by

I am in love with this photo of Mary-Kate. She looks so fresh and polished, but carefree. The dress is beyond amazing, as is the jewelry, but what I really love is her smile. It's photos like these that make me wish the girls smiled more. So pretty.

Burberry Lookbook

I haven't been on blogger in so long I actually had to sign in my google account. The holidays were crazy, Macy's is driving me nuts, and classes start in 2 weeks. On the other hand I am now a proud owner of a PS3, my jeep reached 100,000 miles today, and I've been listening to Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" and Passion Pit's "Little Secrets" on repeat.

I think these images from Burberry's Spring/Summer 2010 lookbook are stellar. Emma Watson is such a perfect fit. I like her, she has nice cheekbones. She seems like she has her shit together and most importantly her acting is actually beginning to improve.

I kinda wish Burberry had found a male model that didn't look like a total douche. Or a Jonas brother, which I guess is pretty synonymous with "total douche."
