Share the Love

Belated share the love post. I forgot what day it was yesterday and didn't post my new "Wednesday" post. I'm sorry. I was confused and sleep deprived due to all the studying I'd done for the math test today. For those of you wondering I'm pretty sure it was an epic fail. Think Shakespeare's, Hamlet, only not as bloody and with a much lower body count. But I think you know what I mean, right?

Some people don't have to worry about tests because they get snow days. Enjoy a day of unproductive fun with Gina from 'anything imaginable!

Attention all nerds! Take a funny look at the truths of Facebook using math. [i promise its not as boring as high school algebra]

Rach is so talented. Please check out her blog. I wish I could draw like that.

Closet Fashionista teaches her readers to dress for less inspired by the always brilliant Matthew Williamson.

Celebrate with Josie! It has been a year of blogging [time flies] and she's giving away a beautiful vintage Coach bag to one of her lucky readers. Better act quickly!

Qin At the Disco had the envy-inspiring opportunity to attend the Loewe Spring/Summer presentation and she documented the event very thoroughly. Slip by for drool-worthy clothes and, of course, bags!

Today's Inspiration: Pride & Prejudice

My all-time favorite "classic" literature would have to be Pride & Prejudice. I think that Jane Austen was brilliant beyond measure. Although I am ashamed to say I have not read all of her books. But do not worry. It's only a matter of time before that happens. This post will deal mostly with the Keira Knightley version because it is also my favorite.

Some of you might already know but I'm in the middle of finals week. Tests are coming at me from all directions and I barely have time to eat and sleep much less post. I threw this one together in a record ten minutes and I'm sorry if its a little...not as put together as some of my other posts. I hope you guys are all having a great week. I'll see you soon. Bye!

Three Beauties Georgina Wilson, Leah Dizon, and Lena Fujii

Georgina Wilson is a Model in the Philippines
Lena Fujii is a Model, Singer and Actress in Japan
Leah Dizon is a Singer, Gaijin tarento, and Gravure idol in Japan
these three beauties are totally HOT! I'll be posting some of there pictures here. Before anything else Check this VIDEO of the Three Beauties and post some comments and tell me what you can say about them.

Style Highlights: Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams in a tailered peacoat [left] and a mustard plaid dress [right].

Michelle looks utterly chic strolling through the streets of NYC in a simple peacoat and tights. The big bold golden accesories and the bright red of her Louboutin heels are the only accents of color in this neutral look. Simple shades add a touch of mystery and confidence.

Michelle looks stunning at the Venie Film Festival. Her simple mustard and cream dress takes a modern twist on the traditonal plaid pattern. Big white buttons and wide front pockets give the dress a sweet feel. Add strappy brown platform sandals and the look is complete.

Michelle Williams in Oscar de la Renta [left] and Christian Dior [right].

Michelle looks lady-like and sweet in this Oscar de la Renta mini. The lace and bows are delicate and romantic without looking like a little girl playing dress-up. This is a look that is timeless. In ten years it will look as effortless as it did the day the picture was taken.

Michelle picked a crisp and clean Christian Dior gown and paired them with stunning plum colored pumps. The ruffles at the bottom and the top add a touch of feminity that she loves incorporate in her looks. A cinched waist and the high hemline show off her excellent figure.

Michelle Williams in Erdem [left] and Sonia Rykiel [right].

Michelle looks stunning in this bold red lace mini. The lady-like cut is complimented perfectly by her edgy heels. The soft curls in her short hair is a welcome change to her usually straight pixie cut. Michelle takes a completely different approach. In this Sonia Rykiel dress she looks fresh and fun.

Michelle Williams, Dawson's Creek alum, has been gaining fame for not only her outstanding acting ability--but for classic fashion sense. She might've had her begining in teen drama but she has slowly been distancing herself by taking on bold and risky projects, like her newest drama with Ryan Gosling called Blue Valentine. Michelle's career has jsut taken off and has no sign of slowing down.

Obsessed: Chloe Marcie Large Leather Bag

This simple brown tote can easily upgrade any outfit. It is a classic that will stay in any closet season, after season. The crisp clean lines that will fit the natural curve of a woman's side is much more perferrable than a block. Browns are perfect alternative to black for spring and summer. It serve as the perfect neutral for spring florals and summer pastels. The fact that this bag could easily carry anything a woman could think of, is only a bonus.

Rachel Zoe Style Moments

Good morning. Lately I have become obsessed with twitter. I find it annoying when people tweet about every, single, little thing and so I try not to overwhelm the very few people actually do follow. But that hasn't been easy. I always find myself wanting to tweet something but I hold myself back. Anyway, today's post is on one of my favorite Bravo darlings, Ms. Rachel Zoe.

Rachel Zoe in Louis Vuitton [left] and a floor sweepin black gown [right].

Rachel pairs her effortless blonde locks with a simple, yet incredibly chic, Louis Vuitton outfit. I adore the simple brown, feathered, belt to cinch in her already incredibly small waist. The navy cropped pants are the perfect length to show off Rachel's utterly chic black patent pumps. Next, Rachel goes for a mono-chromatic look in this gorgeous floor-sweeping gown. Even with all that fabric, Rachel doesn't let the dress overwhelm her tiny frame. A simple pair of colorful earrings and an oversized clutch complete the look.

Rachel Zoe looks etherial and light in this beatuifully simplistic assymetrical gown. With chic strappy silver pumps peeping out from the line to effortlessly compliment the dress' beautiful stripes of shine, this look is stunning. Subtle makeup and a clutch complete Rachel's signature boho look. And whoever said that glitter only belongs on a disco ball never saw Rachel like this. She is young and fresh in mettalic. A no-gloss bold red lip is a perfect choice as it doesn't compete for attention with her one statement piece. Simply stunning.

That is today's post. I cannot wait for The Rachel Zoe Project to return to Bravo. But I will miss Brad. I don't think anyone could ever replace him. Don't forget to follow my blog or check out my Twitter account. Thank you all for reading my blog. I really appreciate it.

Steal Their Style

Steal Their Style #1

1. Go Green
Emerald was a huge trend on the red carpet at the Golden Globes. And although most of us don't get the opprotunity to wear a floor sweeping ballgown every day, that is no excuse to not infuse a little inspiration from mother nature into our wardrobes. Stay causal in these low-rise skinny jeans. Keep warm in a chic parka or add a pop of color in this timeless necklace.

2. Aspire for Men's Attire
Oliva Palermo rocked this menswear inspired look with a tangerine colored blazer and checkered pant. She keeps the look feminine with yellow pumps and an adorable oversized clutch. There are many ways to add simple touches of menswear to our daily lives. A classic button-up and crisp blazer are the most versatile option. For more adventurous fashionistas try a pair of chic oxfords.

3. True Turquoise Envy
Turquoise jewelry is amazing partially for its versatility and partially for its accessability. It can be bought at almost any store within almost any price range. Go boho with turquoise mixed with wodden accents bracelet. Or go bold with these statement earrings. Silver looks stunning with truquoise accents as well--for proof, check out this bracelet.

4. Beautiful Bows
A belt will keep the waist cinched but a chic option is a bow belt. It easily adds a touch of feminity or romance to a simple outfit will highlighting the smallest part of our bodies. Like I said, belts with bows on them are available like this embellshed one. Or cheat and buy a dress or skirt with a belt bow built in like this skirt or this top. So simple but so chic.

What To Wear on a Casual Date

Hi, everyone! Yesterday I got a really interesting email. It reads:

"Hey, Lane. I'm Abby from...and yesterday the boy that I have loved for forever finally asked me out. He said that we're going to dinner (maybe Red Robbin or Olive Garden?) and a movie. I'm soooo nervous. Jeez Loueez, my hands are shaking as I write this! And I NEED help!! Can you give me any tips on what to wear? I like to wear browns and blues. (Please no black! That color washes me out!!!) Thanks and peace. Buh, bye.
Oh! And P.S. Can you keep the look kind of casual? I don't want to look overdressed or anything. Thanks! Again bye. -Abby"

This is the first time I've ever recieved an email like this. And there was no way that I couldn't respond! I wish I knew more about Abby, like her age, but I wanted to post this as soon as possible. So I created two looks. I hope they work!

The first look is a bit edgy. Start with your favorite pair of jeans and a simple tank. [a cami underneath might be a good idea]. Then add a chic, oversized cardigan that is perfect for these cold winter months. Add a cute cross-shoulder bag that is large enough to carry all the necessities for the date. I cheated a little. I know you said no black but these studded flats were so chic but if you really hate black that much, wear brown flats. Add simple gold jewelry and the look is complete.

This look is a little sweeter. Start with a simple white summer dress and a warm, chunky grey sweater. If you live in a really cold place, add a pair of tights! I know you like brown so opt for strappy wedges--perfect and comfortable--and a brown belt to cinch in the waist. Add color with a bold bag and complete the look with simple gold earrings.

Feel free to switch cardigans for balzers or jackets. Red cardigans for blue ones. These are just suggestions to keep in mind when choosing your outfit. I made these picks with both comfort and style in mind. I wish you all the luck on your date! Bye. :)

Kristen Stewart in Vogue

I was so impressed when I saw these photos. And there was no way that I could not not post these pictures. [sorry for the confusing double negative] So without further ado, here are a few pictures and outtakes featuring Vogue's newest covergirl in one of my all time favorite brands ever--Proenza Schouler!

Breaking Dawn director, Bill Condon, described Stewart as "one of the smartest actresses I’ve ever worked with...Not only does she have astonishing technical ability, she has an incredibly incisive and serious approach to character. She has just unlimited potential.”

Kristen Stewart with Proenza Schouler designing team, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez.

Stewart feels the pressure of her enthusiastic fanbase from the Twilight Saga films. "I just want the fans of the book to be happy.” She laughs. “I don’t necessarily care about anyone else.”

What is currently on Stewart's nightstand? Dave Cullen’s Columbine; Into the Wild author Jon Krakauer’s Under the Banner of Heaven, a study of radical Mormonism; and Anna Karenina. On her iPod? The Shins, Broken Bells, and Jenny Lewis.

I can't wait for the weekend to finally get here! Don't forget to check out my twitter account and my facebook page! Whenever I reach 900 followers on GFF, I will host a giveaway. What type of prizes do you want?
