With spring finally in the air, I just get so excited to wear pastels and watercolor tones. Also, a fedora and sloppy side braid make the perfect accessories to flimsy silk dresses and blouses. Too bad it's still a little too cold to go bare-legged. I should be tights-free by April, though!

When I get thinking about delicate colors for spring, I always immediately think of these dresses from McQueen's spring/summer shows ('08+'07). LOVE the precious detail in all of these pieces. That butterfly dress especially...holy moly.
It's that time of year when my hair seems as if it is anything but perfect. Don't get me wrong, I love my hair, but right around this time of year I always want to change something about it. Even if it is just a couple more layers or getting side bangs. Right now, however...I want to do something big. I've never colored my hair before and I so badly want to try it. So, the question is: to Ombre, or to not Ombre? Ill most likely end up not doing anything to it...except growing it out even longer than it is right now. My goal for the summer: belly button.
I know, not an ombre (along with half of these pictures), but I am obsessed
with messy-hippie-naturaly wavy hair that the Olsen's execute so perfectly.
Anne designed simple layering pieces that look gorgeous assembled together. The colors are perfect for fall, too. They are darker than pastels but light enough which will make for an easy transition from maxi dresses in the summer to pants and jackets in the fall.
So perfect. The pants, the vest, the undershirt...and those booties!
My mom just recently picked up these GORGEOUS leather shorts from Anthropologie for me and I have completely fallen in love with them. They are just the perfect piece for upcoming spring wardrobes. I am so obsessed.
"Burton wanted to remind the planet that she isn't channeling the McQueen DNA, she is the McQueen DNA."-Style.com
Like Style.com has said, Sarah Burton is what remains of McQueen. The Fall 2011 collection is just stunning. There are really no other words I can use to describe it. The whole collection consists mainly of black and white with a few grays and purples for kind of an icy snow queen vibe, which is genius. The shoes are beyond amazing, as usual (perhaps a new gaga shoe from this collection?). And rumor has it, Kate Middleton has already put dibs on a few of the dresses for possible wedding gowns. I DONT BLAME HER. Long story short, Sarah Burton is doing a fantastical job as the new designer and I feel like there will never be a point when she will disappoint.
If I was getting married tomorrow, I'd wear this Or this
Or this. I love love love the dark vibe to this dress. It reminds me of Black swan when Natalie Portman is being taken over by her "swan existence" within her. Now that I think about it, so much of this collection is reminiscent to Swan Lake in the sense of Black Swan and White Swan...and I love it. I am actually dying, this collection is beyond beautiful
